Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow of the Rat Audiobook

Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow of the Rat

Author: David Stuart Davies Narrator: Wayne Forester Release Date: September 2019

Detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr Watson face one of their most challenging cases to date: stopping the Great Rat of Sumatra from spreading plague throughout Britain. The investigation starts with a body found floating in the Thames, infected with the bubonic plague, a disease thought to have been eradicated in 1666. How has the disease returned? Who is responsible? The investigation leads them to very unusual suspects, all while the government and wider public descend into chaos. Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow of the Rat is a gripping detective novel, full of twists that lead you to the most remarkable and ingenious conclusions. David Stuart Davies is one of Britain's leading Sherlockian writers. He was the editor of Sherlock Holmes the Detective Magazine, and is the author of several Holmes novels, the hit play Sherlock Holmes: The Last Act, and an acclaimed biography of Jeremy Brett. He is also an advisor to Granada Studios' Sherlock Holmes museum, and he contributed commentaries to the DVD releases of the Basil Rathbone Holmes films.

The Berlin Airlift: The Cold War's Most Remarkable Operation Audiobook

The Berlin Airlift: The Cold War's Most Remarkable Operation

Author: Robert Jackson Narrator: Wayne Forester Release Date: September 2019

It has been 70 years since the ‘Iron Curtain’ was drawn around the Western-occupied sectors of Berlin by the Soviet Union. Having occupied Berlin three years earlier, Russian forces managed to enforce a blockade on the city in June 1948, preventing the Western Allies access by road, rail or canal. Effectively condemning the people of Berlin to starve, Russia refused to lift the blockade until the Deutsche Mark was withdrawn from West Berlin. Forced to find another way to deliver supplies to the trapped citizens, the Western Allies began one of the most remarkable operations in history: the Berlin Airlift. Bravely flying over the beleaguered city to drop in nearly 13,000 tons of food and fuel every day, the Royal Air Force, the United States Air Force and other nations faced a dangerous mission. In saving thousands of innocent civilians from starvation and death, 70 members of the aircrew gave their own lives–a sacrifice the Berliners have never forgotten. In this stunning recreation by RAFVR Squadron Leader and veteran author Robert Jackson, the fifteen months between the start of the blockade and the fall of the Iron Curtain are recounted with vivid detail.

Atom Land: A Guided Tour through the Strange (and Impossibly Small) World of Particle Physics Audiobook

Atom Land: A Guided Tour through the Strange (and Impossibly Small) World of Particle Physics

Author: Jon Butterworth Narrator: Wayne Forester Release Date: April 2018

Atom Land brings the impossibly small world of particle physics to life, taking listeners on a guided journey through the subatomic world. Listeners will sail the subatomic seas in search of electron ports, boson continents, and hadron islands. The sea itself is the quantum field, complete with quantum waves. Beware dark energy and extra dimensions, embodied by fantastical sea creatures prowling the far edges of the known world.Your tour guide through this whimsical-and highly instructive- world is Jon Butterworth, leading physicist at CERN (the epicenter of today's greatest findings in physics). Over a series of journeys, he shows how everything fits together, and how a grasp of particle physics is key to unlocking a deeper understanding of many of the most profound mysteries-and science's possible answers-in the known universe. An Amazon Best Book of the Month.

Zero and the One Audiobook

Zero and the One

Author: Ryan Ruby Narrator: Wayne Forester Release Date: March 2018

A bookish scholarship student, Owen Whiting has high hopes of Oxford, only to find himself immediately out of place. Then he meets Zachary Foedern from New York. Rich and charismatic, Zach takes Owen under his wing, introducing him to a world Owen has only ever read about. From Oxford to the seedy underbelly of Berlin, they dare each other to transgress the boundaries of convention and morality, until Zach proposes the greatest transgression of all: a suicide pact. But when Zach's plans go horribly awry, Owen is left to pick up the pieces and navigate the boundaries between illusion and reality to preserve a hold on his once bright future. Ruby draws us in to a mesmerizing tale which swaps the loss of innocence for the power of secrets and manipulation. A complex and engaging story full of suspense, twists and complex characters, Ruby has blended philosophy and narrative seamlessly to create an unforgettable experience.

Life's a Pitch: How to Sell Yourself and Your Brilliant Ideas Audiobook

Life's a Pitch: How to Sell Yourself and Your Brilliant Ideas

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Life's a Pitch by Stephen Bayley and Roger Mavity, read by the authors with Roy McMillan, Wayne Forester and Emily Bevan. The pitch is the absolute essence of modern business. Ideas are the most valuable commodity in the modern economy and it is human skill which develops them. However the skills of the pitch are not only relevant to the world of business, rather they apply to just about every significant personal transaction in your life... So whether at a sales conference in corporate conference room hell or over lunch at a glamorous restaurant, Life's a Pitch tells you how to handle human transactions. A pitch is not a meeting, it's a drama. A pitch is not about transferring information, it's about transferring power. It is business, but it is also theatre. Part inspirational manual for business, part guidebook to a successful and happy social life, Life's a Pitch is written as the result of an accumulated half century of (mostly successful) pitching by the authors. Ground-breaking and genre-busting, it will transform the way you think about the art of persuasion for ever.

A Map of the Invisible: Journeys into Particle Physics Audiobook

A Map of the Invisible: Journeys into Particle Physics

Author: Jon Butterworth Narrator: Wayne Forester Release Date: October 2017

Random House presents the audiobook edition of A Map of the Invisible by Jon Butterworth, read by Wayne Forester. 'A magnificent, compelling and insightful voyage to the frontier of knowledge from a great writer with a deep understanding.' Brian Cox What is the universe really made of? How do we know? Follow the map of the invisible to find out... Over the last sixty years, scientists around the world have worked together to explore the fundamental constituents of matter, and the forces that govern their behaviour. The result, so far, is the 'Standard Model' of elementary particles: a theoretical map of the basic building blocks of the universe. With the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, the map as we know it was completed, but also extended into strange new territory. A Map of the Invisible is an explorer's guide to the Standard Model and the extraordinary realms of particle physics. After shrinking us down to the size of a sub-atomic particle, pioneering physicist Jon Butterworth takes us on board his research vessel for a journey in search of atoms and quarks, electrons and neutrinos, and the forces that shape the universe. Step by step, discovery by discovery, we journey into the world of the unseen, from the atom to black holes and dark matter, and beyond, to the outer reaches of the cosmos and the frontiers of human knowledge. Beautifully illustrated, with gradually evolving maps offering an inventive visual glossary as the journey progresses, A Map of the Invisible provides an essential introduction to our world, and to particle physics. It is a landmark work of non-fiction by one of the great scientists and science writers of today.
