ZED Audiobook

ZED

Author: Joanna Kavenna Narrator: Guy Mott Release Date: December 2019

A blistering, satirical novel about life under a global media corporation that knows exactly what we think, what we want, and what we do - before we do. Self-anointed guru of the Digital Age, Guy Matthias, has become one of the world's most powerful and influential figures. Untaxed and ungoverned, his company 'Beetle' essentially operates beyond the control of Governments or the law. But trouble is never far away, and for Guy a perfect storm is brewing: his wife wants to leave him; malfunctioning Beetle software has led to some unfortunate deaths which are proving hard to cover up and a mystery hacker, Gogol, is on his trail. With the clock ticking- Guy, his aide Douglas Varley, conflicted national security agent Eloise Jayne, depressed journalist David Strachey, and Gogol, whoever that may be - the question is becoming ever more pressing, how do you live in reality when nobody knows anything, and all knowledge, all certainty, is partly or entirely fake? 'An idiosyncratic, joyously page-turning thriller - and one of the cleverest books you'll read this year.' THE TELEGRAPH 'It's chillingly believable, but Zed is also extremely funny . . . Kavenna remains one of the most brilliant and disconcerting British writers working today.' SPECTATOR 'Imagine a denser, intellectually chewier and very British version of dystopian tech satire The Circle, by Dave Eggers, and you'll have some idea of this . . . snort-inducingly funny.' DAILY MAIL 'A work of delirious genius.' GUARDIAN, Book of the Day

Mister Wolf Audiobook

Mister Wolf

Author: Chris Petit Narrator: Allan Corduner Release Date: December 2019

*** The new novel from the author of the highly acclaimed The Butchers of Berlin, soon to be a TV series ***   Berlin, July 1944, a world of illicit jazz clubs, sexually generous young women, suspect art dealers, last-ditch zealots and a city defined by crumbling infrastructure, advanced terror, dirty secrets and deep politics - and then there is August Schlegel, caught askance in a web of totalitarian mayhem. Everybody knows what happened on 20 July: Führer Adolf Hitler miraculously survived an assassination attempt when a bomb failed to kill him. Schlegel, a reluctant employee of the Gestapo, finds himself in the foolhardy position of questioning the official version, knowing it is the last thing he should be thinking. Was it a propaganda stunt, or a deception or was something more extreme going on, perhaps a cover-up connected to the mysterious burning down of a Berlin clinic? A deadly political dance takes Schlegel all the way up to Party Secretary Martin Bormann, the Chancellory's sinister 'black pope'. Information is controlled, informers are everywhere, secrecy remains the cornerstone of the regime, yet someone appears interested in digging up a carefully buried scandal in the Führer's past private life, an incestuous affair with his young niece that ended mysteriously in 1931. Rumours circulate of a 'Hitler confession'. Trapped in a kingdom of lies, Schlegel discovers the blighted present and a censored past are connected in ways he could never have imagined. The niece's tragic end is intimately bound up with the fate of his long-lost father, whom Schlegel had always believed absconded to Argentina and died there, until he finds a private 1925 edition of Mein Kampf, dedicated to 'Anton Schlegel', signed, 'In eternal gratitude, Adolf Hitler.' The identity of Schlegel's father - and whether he is still alive and operating as a secret puppet master - becomes inseparable from the enigma of a shapeshifting Führer, going back to the early days when he was known to Anton Schlegel as Herr Wolf. Questioning the official version of events, Chris Petit offers a dazzling reinterpretation of history, showing how the deeper secret truths invariably turn out to be personal. Praise for Chris Petit: 'No denying the book's power' Nick Rennison, Sunday Times 'The real skill of this rigorous, disturbing novel lies in the way Petit steadily and unsensationally allows his protagonists to discover the full horror of the hellhole they are in' Guardian 'One of Britain's most visionary writers' David Peace 'Powerful evocation of a city living in terror' Sunday Times Crime Club 'Ambitious, darkly atmospheric' The Times 'Hugely impressive and highly readable; in the tradition of Thomas Harris's The Silence of the Lambs' Financial Times 'Ferocious invention marks this novel out as special' The Edge 'Ambitious and intelligent'  Times 'Puts Petit in the first rank' Metro 'A zigzagging narrative as byzantine an blackly pessemistic as late James Ellroy' Independent on Sunday 'An example of the genre near its best. Gorky Park with something to spare; well worth anyone's weekend' Guardian for The Psalm Killer
