Author: Sherri Bryan Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: January 2019

Thirty-nine-year-old Megan Fallon is in a pickle. Not only is she suffering from empty-nest syndrome, but she's lost the job she loved, and her fiance's run off with her hairdresser. A complete life change is what's called for, so when the opportunity to make a new start presents itself following news of a family celebration, Megan is lured back to her childhood home. With a party to organize, old friends to catch up with, an ex-husband and his jealous wife to avoid, a mischievous uncle on the lookout for adventure, a clumsy childhood acquaintance who has undergone a startling transformation, and a cantankerous tabby cat to contend with, Megan has her hands full. However, what started off as a leisurely break soon takes a chilling turn when members of the community start getting bumped off at an alarming rate, and Megan finds herself at the heart of an investigation that has her suspecting everyone. Could the murderer be the local finance advisor, whose misjudged investment recommendation cost his clients their life savings? Or maybe the village celebrity; a footballer who appears to have at least one skeleton in a cupboard he'd prefer was kept firmly locked? Or what about a member of a classical music trio who seem to have plenty of secrets they'd rather keep to themselves? Or is the killer someone else entirely?

Autobiography: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Autobiography: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Laura Marcus Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: November 2018

Autobiography is one of the most popular of written forms. From Casanova to Benjamin Franklin to the Kardashians, individuals throughout history have recorded their own lives and experiences. These personal writings are central to the work of literary critics, philosophers, historians and psychologists, who have found in autobiographies from across the centuries not only an understanding of the ways in which lives have been lived, but the most fundamental accounts of what it means to be a self in the world. In this Very Short Introduction Laura Marcus defines what we mean by "autobiography", and considers its relationship with similar literary forms such as memoirs, journals, letters, diaries, and essays. Analyzing the core themes in autobiographical writing, such as confession, conversion and testimony; romanticism and the journeying self; Marcus discusses the autobiographical consciousness (and the roles played by time, memory and identity), and considers the relationship between psychoanalysis and autobiography. Exploring the themes of self-portraiture and performance, Marcus also discusses the ways in which fiction and autobiography have shaped each other.

The Return Audiobook

The Return

Author: Kelly St. Clare Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: November 2018

Three months ago, Romy emerged from the cultivation tanks after a year floating inside. Body intact. Mind broken. Memory gone. Now she undergoes regular testing as doctors work to find out . . . well, she's not exactly sure what. The tests must have something to do with the reason she can't remember her knot-the single lucid memory the other insane soldiers on Orbito Four still possess. Whatever the researchers are searching for, if it aids the soldiers in the deathly war against the lethal alien invaders-the Critamal-the excruciating pain is worth it. But a grey-eyed man has other plans. Boxed in and caught, Romy is taken hostage by people who shouldn't exist! They dress in black and carry weapons she's never seen in her genetically enhanced life. Reunited with Knot 27. Memories returned. Fifteen months have passed since her world shattered into bright red, ringing chaos. Things have changed-people have changed. How long until what was once as familiar as breathing is familiar once more? Friendships. Love. Freedom. Can the new Romy reconcile with the old, or will the two halves of herself remain locked in an internal battle? And if a victor should arise from this silent war . . . will it be the part of her that kills without hesitation, without mercy? All it takes is for the cracks to join and blood will pour.

The Retreat Audiobook

The Retreat

Author: Kelly St. Clare Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: October 2018

Keepers of Earth. One hundred and fifty years ago, global warming brought humankind to the edge of extinction. In a desperate bid for survival, four thousand genetically enhanced soldiers-the last slice of humanity-were sent to eight space stations. To serve. To protect. Then the Critamal arrived, uninvited. Waves of aliens now work to break through the Orbitos' defences, the black-shelled creatures seeking to colonise the vacated and barren world. War is their reality. All Romy can do is fight alongside her knot and watch from the mocking midst of the stars as Earth rises and falls in the distance. She dreams of a different life-one free from the mark of death and the never-ending touch of loss. Be careful what you wish for . . . When a technical glitch during battle leaves Romy and the four other members of Knot 27 hurtling through orbit towards Planet Earth, Romy knows they are dead one way or another. If the crash doesn't kill them, post-global warming conditions will. Yet days pass as Romy wanders injured and aimless through the bush. Alone. Every second, every day she continues to breathe disputes what they have been told. As Romy desperately searches for her knot, she comes across a grey-eyed man-a mysterious and close-lipped presence she is not certain she can trust. Especially when he shouldn't even exist. Secrets are unmasked. A different version of Earth bursts to the surface. Will Romy survive the betrayal and lies threatening to shatter her mind like glass? Earth was ruined. Humankind destroyed. Or so they were told . . .

Silicon States: The Power and Politics of Big Tech and What It Means for Our Future Audiobook

Silicon States: The Power and Politics of Big Tech and What It Means for Our Future

Author: Lucie Greene Narrator: Esther Wane Release Date: August 2018

Welcome to the Silicon States. Silicon Valley is imperializing the planet. With nearly bottomless supplies of cash and ambition, a small group of companies have been gradually seizing symbolic and practical civic leadership in America and worldwide. But Silicon Valley does not answer to the electorate; nor have they been voted into office. And the perils of their influence are only now making themselves known. The institutions of Facebook, Google, and Twitter are implicated in the investigation of Russian interference into U.S. elections, providing the public their first opportunity to glimpse the wizards behind the curtain: how these businesses operate, where their interests lie, and the power they wield over an unsuspecting citizenry. While the promise of Silicon Valley is bold, futuristic, and seductive, it is important to understand these corporations' possible impact on our future. Silicon States emphasizes that before we hand our future over to a rarified group of companies, we examine the world they might build: its benefits, prejudices, and inherent flaws. And to ask, ultimately, if we really want it.
