Dr Fischer of Geneva Audiobook

Dr Fischer of Geneva

Author: Graham Greene Narrator: Julian Wadham Release Date: March 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. ‘Manages to say more about love, hate, happiness, grief, immortality, greed and the disgustingly rich than most contemporary English novels three times the length’ The Times Doctor Fischer despises the human race. A millionaire with a taste for sadism, he spends his time and money planning notorious parties, entertainments designed to expose the shallowness and greed of his craven hangers-on. Black comedy and painful satire combine in a totally compelling novel. © Graham Greene 1999 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

The Moonstone: Penguin Classics Audiobook

The Moonstone: Penguin Classics

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Jessie Buckley, Richard Cordery, Julian Wadham, David Sturzaker, Hugh Fraser, Bruce Alexander, Oscar Batterham, Matthew Spencer, James MacCallum, Stewart Clarke and Jot Davies. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Sandra Kemp. The Moonstone, a priceless yellow diamond, is looted from an Indian temple and maliciously bequeathed to Rachel Verinder. On her eighteenth birthday, her friend and suitor Franklin Blake brings the gift to her. That very night, it is stolen again. No one is above suspicion, as the idiosyncratic Sergeant Cuff and the Franklin piece together a puzzling series of events as mystifying as an opium dream and as deceptive as the nearby Shivering Sand. T. S. Eliot famously described THE MOONSTONE as 'the first, the longest and the best of modern English detective novels', but, as Sandra Kemp discusses in her introduction, it offers many other facets, which reveal Collins's sensibilities as untypical of his era. (c) 1868, Wilkie Collins (P) 2019 Penguin Audio

The Avengers - The Lost Episodes Volume 03 Audiobook

The Avengers - The Lost Episodes Volume 03

Author: John Dorney Narrator: Anthony Howell, Julian Wadham, Lucy Briggs-Owen Release Date: January 2015

Steed and Dr Keel return to action in these four recreations of classic lost episodes. 1. Hot Snow When an incomprehensible tragedy strikes on what should have been the happiest day of David Keel's life, he is left traumatised. Confronted with an apparently motiveless crime, he feels compelled to investigate and is drawn into London's seedy underworld of drug smuggling. As he digs deeper and deeper, his only hope may be a mysterious gentleman who appears to know more than he says. Together, will they be able to avenge the crime? 2. Brought to Book Still on the trail of the men who wrecked his life, Dr Keel gets to know his new associate, John Steed, rather better as they infiltrate warring gangs running amok in the betting community. Lies and double crosses stack up on every side, and it's impossible to know who to trust. As the race nears its fatal finish, has Dr Keel gambled on the wrong side? 3. Square Root of Evil Following the death of a colleague, Steed goes undercover amongst a group of forgers. As the stakes get higher, his risk of discovery increases and Dr Keel may be his only chance to escape alive. But with the formidable thug known as the Cardinal watching their every move, could Steed be dooming them both? 4. One for the Mortuary It should have been an easy day for David Keel. A short flight and a conference to attend. But John Steed's arrival disrupts everything, as usual. Without even knowing, he finds himself at the centre of an international conspiracy. The chase is on to preserve and protect a valuable medical formula, and with an assassin on their trail, our heroes find themselves enmeshed in an intricate web of laundry, taxidermy and murder. Producer David Richardson Executive Producers Jason Haigh-Ellery and Nicholas Briggs Written By: Adapted by John Dorney Directed By: Ken Bentley
