Hot Water

Author: Christopher Fowler Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: March 2022

She sees everything, but can never tell anyone... a wickedly compulsive thriller from the bestselling author of the Bryant & May series. At a beautiful villa in the south of France, Hannah Carreras works as a maid. Under strict instructions never to speak to the guests, she blends into the background - but she sees everything. Including the mistress Summer, lounging by the pool awaiting the arrival of her married lover, Steve. When Steve finally shows at the villa - with his family unexpectedly in tow - Summer has vanished. Steve claims he never saw her. But Steve's wife is no fool: she knows there's something going on. Whose tiny bikini lies by the pool? Whose perfume is in the bathroom? Before long, the local police start asking questions, and the villa's occupants have something to hide. Only Hannah, always listening, watching, saw broken glass and blood near the pool the day Summer disappeared. Only Hannah thinks she knows what lies are being told... "Witty, brooding and highly entertaining.' ANN CLEEVES 'A wickedly clever mystery - tense, atmospheric and laced with Christopher Fowler's pitch-black humour."

The Tudors in Love Audiobook

The Tudors in Love

Author: Sarah Gristwood Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: September 2021

Why did Henry VIII marry six times? Why did Anne Boleyn have to die? Why did Elizabeth I's courtiers hail her as a goddess come to earth? The dramas of courtly love have captivated centuries of readers and dreamers. Yet too often they're dismissed as something existing only in books and song - those old legends of King Arthur and chivalric fantasy. Not so. In this ground-breaking history, Sarah Gristwood reveals the way courtly love made and marred the Tudor dynasty. From Henry VIII declaring himself as the 'loyal and most assured servant' of Anne Boleyn to Elizabeth I's poems to her suitors, the Tudors re-enacted the roles of the devoted lovers and capricious mistresses first laid out in the romances of medieval literature. The Tudors in Love dissects the codes of love, desire and power, unveiling romantic obsessions that have shaped the history of this nation. In the #MeToo era, re-examining the history of the social codes behind modern romance has never been more vital. "Riveting, pacy... the Tudors as you've never seen them before.' ALISON WEIR

Unholy Murder: The edge-of-your-seat Sunday Times bestselling crime thriller Audiobook

Unholy Murder: The edge-of-your-seat Sunday Times bestselling crime thriller

Author: Lynda La Plante Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: August 2021

Detective Jane Tennison must lift the lid on the most chilling murder case of her career to date. A coffin is dug up by builders in the grounds of an historic convent - inside is the body of a young nun. In a city as old as London, the discovery is hardly surprising. But when scratch marks are found on the inside of the coffin lid, Detective Jane Tennison believes she has unearthed a mystery far darker than any she's investigated before. However, not everyone agrees. Tennison's superiors dismiss it as an historic cold case, and the Church seems desperate to conceal the facts from the investigation. It's clear that someone is hiding the truth, and perhaps even the killer. Tennison must pray she can find both - before they are buried forever . . .

Our Biggest Experiment Audiobook

Our Biggest Experiment

Author: Alice Bell Narrator: Alice Bell, Rachel Atkins Release Date: July 2021

Maybe it's the weirdness of the weather. Maybe it's another way to pour scorn on politicians. Maybe the steady stream of headlines about fires, floods and droughts is finally starting to get to us. Whatever it is, for more and more of us, climate change is shifting from a shadowy fear in the backs of our minds to something we feel we need to get a handle on. Climate change may be a horror story, but, as Our Biggest Experiment shows, the tale of how we discovered it isn't. The discovery of climate change didn't feature a 'Eureka!' moment - it was a slow and gradual realisation as each new generation pieced together a little more information. Our exploration of the Earth's fluctuating environment is an extraordinary story of human perception and scientific endeavour. It also began much earlier than we might think. This book takes us back to climate change science's earliest steps in the 18th and 19th centuries, through the point when concern started to rise in the 1950s and right up to today, where the 'debate' is over and the world is finally starting to face up to the reality that things are going to get a lot hotter, a lot drier (in some places) and a lot wetter (in others), with catastrophic consequences for most of Earth's biomes. Our Biggest Experiment recounts how the world became addicted to fossil fuels, how we discovered that electricity could be a saviour, and how renewable energy is far from a 20th-century discovery. Alice Bell cuts through the jargon and jumble of numbers to show how we're getting to grips with what is now the defining issue of our time. The message she relays is ultimately hopeful; harnessing the ingenuity and intelligence that has driven the history of climate change research can mean a more sustainable and bearable future for humanity.
