A Frozen Hell: The Russo-Finnish Winter War of 1939-1940 Audiobook

A Frozen Hell: The Russo-Finnish Winter War of 1939-1940

Author: William R. Trotter Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: March 2018

In 1939, tiny Finland waged war-the kind of war that spawns legends-against the mighty Soviet Union, and yet their epic struggle has been largely ignored. Guerrillas on skis, heroic single-handed attacks on tanks, unfathomable endurance, and the charismatic leadership of one of this century's true military geniuses-these are the elements of both the Finnish victory and a gripping tale of war.

A Knife in the Fog: A Mystery Featuring Margaret Harkness and Arthur Conan Doyle Audiobook

A Knife in the Fog: A Mystery Featuring Margaret Harkness and Arthur Conan Doyle

Author: Bradley Harper Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: October 2018

September 1888. A twenty-nine-year-old Arthur Conan Doyle practices medicine by day and writes at night. His first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, although gaining critical and popular success, has only netted him twenty-five pounds. Embittered by the experience, he vows never to write another "crime story." Then a messenger arrives with a mysterious summons from former Prime Minister William Gladstone, asking him to come to London immediately. Once there, he is offered one month's employment to assist the Metropolitan Police as a "consultant" in their hunt for the serial killer soon to be known as Jack the Ripper. Doyle agrees on the stipulation his old professor of surgery, Professor Joseph Bell-Doyle's inspiration for Sherlock Holmes-agrees to work with him. Bell agrees, and soon the two are joined by Miss Margaret Harkness, an author residing in the East End who knows how to use a Derringer and serves as their guide and companion. Pursuing leads through the dank alleys and courtyards of Whitechapel, they come upon the body of a savagely murdered fifth victim. Soon it becomes clear that the hunters have become the hunted when a knife-wielding figure approaches.

A Million Years in a Day: A Curious History of Everyday Life From the Stone Age to the Phone Age Audiobook

A Million Years in a Day: A Curious History of Everyday Life From the Stone Age to the Phone Age

Author: Greg Jenner Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: June 2016

Who invented beds? When did we start cleaning our teeth? How old are wine and beer? Which came first: the toilet seat or toilet paper? What was the first clock? Every day, from the moment our alarm clock wakes us in the morning until our head hits our pillow at night, we all take part in rituals that are millennia old. Structured around one ordinary day, A Million Years in a Day reveals the astonishing origins and development of the daily practices we take for granted. In this gloriously entertaining romp through human history, Greg Jenner explores the gradual and often unexpected evolution of our daily routines. This is not a story of politics, wars, or great events. Instead, Jenner has scoured Roman rubbish bins, Egyptian tombs, and Victorian sewers to bring us the most intriguing, surprising, and sometimes downright silly nuggets from our past. Drawn from across the world, spanning a million years of humanity, this book is a smorgasbord of historical delights. It is a history of all those things you always wondered-and many you have never considered. It is the story of your life, one million years in the making.

An Exorcist Tells His Story Audiobook

An Exorcist Tells His Story

Author: Fr. Gabriele Amorth Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: July 2020

In this powerful book, the renowned exorcist of Rome tells of his many experiences in his ministry as an exorcist doing battle with Satan to relieve the great suffering of people in the grip of evil. The importance of the ministry to 'expel demons' is clearly seen in the Gospels, from the actions of the Apostles, and from Church history. Fr. Amorth allows the listener to witness the activities of the exorcist, to experience what an exorcist sees and does. He also reveals how little modern science, psychology, and medicine can do to help those under Satan's influence, and that only the power of Christ can release them from this kind of mental, spiritual or physical suffering. An Exorcist Tells His Story has been a European bestseller that has gone through numerous printings and editions. No other book today so thoroughly and concisely discusses the topic of exorcism.

Burning Down the Haus: Punk Rock, Revolution, and the Fall of the Berlin Wall Audiobook

Burning Down the Haus: Punk Rock, Revolution, and the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Author: Tim Mohr Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: September 2018

It began with a handful of East Berlin teens who heard the Sex Pistols on a British military radio broadcast to troops in West Berlin, and it ended with the collapse of the East German dictatorship. Punk rock was a life-changing discovery. The buzz-saw guitars, the messed-up clothing and hair, the rejection of society and the DIY approach to building a new one: In their gray surroundings, where everyone's future was preordained by some communist apparatchik, punk represented a revolutionary philosophy-quite literally, as it turned out. But as the East German punks became more numerous, more visible, and more rebellious, security forces-including the dreaded secret police, the Stasi-targeted them. They were spied on by friends and even members of their own families; they were expelled from schools and jobs; they were beaten by police and imprisoned. Instead of backing down, the punks fought back, playing an indispensable role in the underground movements that helped bring down the Berlin Wall. The story of East German punk rock is about much more than music; it is a spellbinding cultural and political history that also serves as a rallying cry against authoritarianism everywhere.

Consequence

Author: Eli Yance Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: November 2017

A millionaire businessman and his loving family; two young conmen and an unspoken bond; and a pair of hardened hit men-these three groups are from different worlds, but one event will bring those worlds together and change their lives forever. Morris and Roach need to find something that will get them out from under the thumb of their boss, the crime lord running the streets of London. And Price, the local (and loaded) businessman may just be able to lead them to it. However, the hit men aren't the only ones with their eyes on Price. Richards and Phillips, two young conmen, have been looking to leave their petty crimes behind, but they'll need a big score to do it. It just takes one mistake, one stroke of bad luck, and nothing will be the same ever again. Drugs, theft, fraud, kidnapping, and murder-everyone has their vices, but sometimes it's the innocent ones who pay. Consequence is a fast-paced crime thriller that follows three interconnected story lines from their humble beginnings to their destructive ends. This brutal, violent thriller exposes the cold, callous underbelly of the criminal world, as well as all the innocent lives it drags into its clutches.

Cræft: An Inquiry Into the Origins and True Meaning of Traditional Crafts Audiobook

Cræft: An Inquiry Into the Origins and True Meaning of Traditional Crafts

Author: Alexander Langlands Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies Release Date: August 2018

In the midst of a seemingly endless supply of mass-manufactured products, we find ourselves nostalgic for products bearing the mark of authenticity-hand-made furniture, artisan breads, craft beers, and other goods produced by human hands. What often goes unnoticed is the transformation of our understanding of craft-or rather, craeft-in the wake of industrialization. In Craeft, archaeologist and medieval historian Alexander Langlands argues that our modern understanding of craft only skims the surface. His journeys from his home in Wales have taken him along the Atlantic seaboard of Europe, from Spain through France and England to Scotland and Iceland in search of the lost meaning of craft. Reaching as far back as the Neolithic period, he combines deep history with scientific analyses and personal anecdotes. We follow the author as he herds sheep, keeps bees, tans hides, spins wool, and thatches roofs. We learn that scythes work much better on tall grass than the latest model of weed trimmers, that you can spin wool using a large wooden spoon, and that it was once considered criminal to work on animal hides before a requisite twelve-month soak.
