The Glass Kingdom

Author: Lawrence Osborne Narrator: Sura Siu Release Date: August 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. Sarah Talbot Jennings, a young American living in New York, has fled to Bangkok to disappear. Arriving with a suitcase containing $200,000, she rents an apartment at the Kingdom, a glittering high-end complex slowly sinking into its own twilight - and run by conveniently discreet staff. In Bangkok's shocking heat Sarah meets the beguiling Mali, a half-Thai tenant who's strangely determined to bring the quiet American out of her shell. An invitation to Mali's poker nights soon follows, where - fuelled by shots of yadong, gossip of shady dealings in the city and the hit of marijuana - Sarah is drawn into the orbit of the Kingdom's glamorous ex-pat women. But when an attempted military coup wracks the streets below and Sarah witnesses something unspeakable through one of the Kingdom's windows, only to be followed by a series of strange disappearances, Sarah's safe haven begins to feel like a trap. From a master of atmosphere and suspense, The Glass Kingdom is a brilliantly unsettling story of cruelty and psychological unrest, and an enthralling glimpse into the shadowy crossroads of karma and human greed. 'Bangkok is the star of this accomplished novel. Its denizens are aliens to themselves, glittering on the horizon of their own lives, moving - restless and rootless and afraid - though a cityscape that has more stories than they know' HILARY MANTEL © Lawrence Osborne 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Nach uns die Pinguine - Ein Weltuntergangskrimi (ungekürzt) Audiobook

Nach uns die Pinguine - Ein Weltuntergangskrimi (ungekürzt)

Author: Hannes Stein Narrator: Roman Shamov Release Date: August 2020

Der bizarrste und ungewöhnlichste Krimi des Jahres. Die Menschheit hat sich selbst nahezu ausgerottet. Nur auf den abgelegenen Falklandinseln geht der Alltag weiter - bis der Gouverneur mit einer Churchill-Büste erschlagen wird ... Hannes Steins skurriler Weltuntergangskrimi ist ein philosophisch-postapokalyptisches Vergnügen. Eines gleich vorweg: Vom Weltuntergang sprechen die Figuren dieses Buches nicht. Nein, die Apokalypse, die auch ein überforderter US-Präsident mit eigenartiger Frisur nicht verhindern konnte, wird von den Bewohnern der Falklands mit dem der Insel eigenen Understatement nur mit 'die betrüblichen Ereignisse, über die wir ungern reden' umschrieben.

The Annihilation Protocol Audiobook

The Annihilation Protocol

Author: Michael Laurence Narrator: Neil Hellegers Release Date: August 2020

Michael Laurence delivers The Annihilation Protocol, the follow-up to The Extinction Agenda, in a series described as “Jack Reacher falling into a plot written by Dan Brown” (James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Crucible). For centuries, a mysterious syndicate known as the Thirteen has staged a silent coup, infiltrating governments and manipulating the course of world events. It’s more powerful than any nation, deadlier than any army. The time has come for it to emerge from the shadows and claim the entire world as its own. And only FBI Special Agent James Mason and his longtime friends stand in its way. After narrowly preventing a global pandemic, Mason and his team discover an even deadlier threat has already been set into motion. An unknown adversary has produced enough of a lethal nerve gas to wipe every major city off the face of the world, and their only clue to finding it lies in a cryptic message written in the blood of a man found entombed behind a concrete wall. It isn’t until another victim appears—right in the heart of Central Park—that Mason realizes the murders are personal in nature, and figuring out the connection between them is the key to averting catastrophe. Eight million lives hang in the balance and their only chance of surviving lies in the hands of Mason, his old friends, and a new partner he’s not entirely sure he can trust. Can his team track down a sinister agent codenamed Scarecrow before toxic gas fills the streets of New York City, or will the true power pulling the strings from behind the scenes—the Thirteen—succeed in enacting its genocidal agenda?

The Darkling Halls of Ivy Audiobook

The Darkling Halls of Ivy

Author: Lawrence Block (editor) Narrator: Peter Berkrot, Teri Schnaubelt Release Date: August 2020

In recent years, colleges and universities have become known for their 'trigger warnings' and 'safe spaces'-but as the eighteen authors who penned stories for this powerful new anthology can tell you, there's plenty of danger still lurking behind the stolid stonework, leather-bound volumes, and thickets of ivy. Award-winning editor Lawrence Block has assembled a Who's Who of literary luminaries and turned them loose on the world of academia, where petty rivalries and grand betrayals inflame relations between professors and students, deans, and donors. From Ian Rankin to Joe Lansdale, Seanan McGuire to David Morrell, each author reveals the dark truths and buried secrets that make institutions of higher learning such a hotbed of controversy. You'll encounter plagiarism, sexual misconduct, and brutal competition-not to mention secret societies, cover-ups of murder, and one near-future course of study that makes The Handmaid's Tale look like Mother Goose. So: collect your supplies, plan your schedule, and prepare to pull an all-nighter, because The Darkling Halls of Ivy is required reading. Contains mature themes.

Richard Osman, author of The Thursday Murder Club 'We all want to go away on foreign holidays - but I was reading Anthony Horowitz's new book based in Greece and oh my God I could taste the wine, I could see the sea, I could smell that lovely dusky air! ... It's so much fun, I'm absolutely loving it' Ryan Tubridy, RTE Radio One 'Showcases Horowitz's full battalion of strengths: the whiplash plotting, the leather-smooth prose, the bold energy and, above all, the bright spark of joy that ignites the best fiction. Sophisticated, literate novels aren't supposed to be so much fun.' AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window 'A mind-bending mystery to tie readers in knots' BBC 'There is no mystery writer whose puzzles make me think, 'Ooh, I can't wait!' more than Anthony Horowitz. He is a master of the cunning plot device, and brings zest and originality to the traditional murder mystery novel.'

And the perfect jumping-on point for newcomers.' The Sun 'It's a complex plot, a novel within a novel, where the reader gets to grapple with the whodunnit both in the main narrative and through an entirely separate detective story[...] They are both gripping reads' Irish Times 'So clever, a story within a story within a story. A triumph.' Kate Mosse 'A masterpiece by an author at the top of his genre.' Adam Hamdy
