Killer Triggers Audiobook

Killer Triggers

Author: Joe Kenda Narrator: Joe Kenda Release Date: March 2021

The most common triggers for homicide are fear, rage, revenge, money, lust, and, more rarely, sheer madness. This isn't an exact science, of course. Any given murder can have multiple triggers. Sex and revenge seem to be common partners in crime. Rage, money, and revenge make for a dangerous trifecta of triggers, as well. This book offers my memories of homicide cases that I investigated or oversaw. In each case, I examine the trigger that led to death. I chose this theme for the book because even though the why of a murder case may not be critical in an investigation, it can sometimes lead us to the killer. And even if we solve a case without knowing the trigger, the why still intrigues us, disrupting our dreams and lingering in our minds, perhaps because each of us fears the demons that lie within our own psyche-the triggers waiting to be pulled.

Flames: A Short Horror Story Audiobook

Flames: A Short Horror Story

Author: Stories From The Attic Narrator: Robin Mcconnell Release Date: March 2021

When Leonard Merlode said ‘no’ to the military, he knew there would be consequences. The technology he had developed, a suit that would allow the wearer to really ‘feel’ what was going on in a virtual environment, was a precious commodity. A commodity that could easily be misused if it fell into the wrong hands. He could never have imagined, however, just how severely he would be punished for his decision, why the military would hire the man known to his friends as Dex and to his enemies as ‘Flames’ and how the simple word ‘no’, was about to make his entire world, go up in smoke.

Author: Stories From The Attic Narrator: Robin Mcconnell Release Date: March 2021

On the edge of Elderton, a town in the Canadian mountains, there is a forest, a forest, that at certain times of the month houses a thing that shouldn’t exist. A thing that stalks through the trees looking for prey, prey that eventually it will find in town. Down the mountainside, in the quiet of the town, the people huddle together. They bar their doors and board their windows, sitting silently and listening. Listening for the howl. The half-human sound dragged from an ill-formed thing, that rings through the town and announces the arrival of the beast. The howl that makes them hope and wish, that it won’t be their door, the thing tries next.

Silent Wife, The Silenciadas (Spanish edition)

Author: Karin Slaughter Narrator: Sara Vivanco Release Date: March 2021

El inspector Will Trent recibe una información inquietante mientras indaga sobre la muerte de un preso: uno de los reclusos asegura ser inocente de la despiadada agresión de la que fue acusado hace años. Afirma que unos policías corruptos, encabezados por Jeffrey Tolliver, le tendieron una trampa para inculparlo y que el verdadero responsable, un asesino que lleva años sistemáticamente atacando a mujeres en el estado de Georgia, sigue libre. El recluso le ofrece a Will la información que necesita para resolver el caso que actualmente investiga a cambio de que reabra el suyo y averigüe más sobre al difunto Tolliver. Apenas unos días antes una joven ha sido brutalmente asesinada en un parque al norte de Georgia: ¿será casualidad, u obra del presunto asesino en serie? A medida que Will indaga ambos crímenes, se percata de que la clave de todo es Tolliver. Pero ha pasado casi una década: tiempo suficiente para que los recuerdos se tornen borrosos, los testigos y las pruebas desaparezcan, y las mentiras se conviertan en verdades. Will se halla, además, ante otra disyuntiva: solo puede resolver estos misterios con la ayuda de su novia, la forense Sara Linton: viuda de Tolliver. Cuando el pasado y presente chocan, Will se da cuenta de que todo lo que valora está en peligro…  Karin Slaughter es una de las novelistas más aclamadas y leídas del panorama literario internacional.
