Ausführliche Hörbuchbeschreibungen

Blood Eagle

Kriminalhauptkommissar Jan Fabel erhält folgende Nachricht per E-mail: 

Die Zeit ist seltsam, oder? Ich schreibe Ihnen und wir teilen denselben Moment. Doch während ich dies schreibe, Herr Hauptkommissar, schlafen Sie und mein nächstes Opfer lebt noch. Wenn Sie es lesen, ist sie schon tot. Unser Tanz geht weiter...'

 

Blood Eagle beschreibt den verzweifelten Versuch von Kommissar Fabel in Hamburg, den mysteriösen Fall zu lösen, bevor es noch weitere Opfer gibt. Aber wie soll er einem Mörder folgen der keine Spuren hinterlässt, seine Opfer scheinbar willkürlich auswählt und dessen Motive  weit über Gier und Gewalt hinausgehen und dunklen Abgründen der menschlichen Seele entstammen?

Roadside Crosses

Kathryn Dance und ihre erstaunliche Intuition sind wieder da - in einem weiteren fesselnden Thriller:  

Am Straßenrand bemerkt ein Autobahnpolizist etwas Merkwürdiges: ein selbst gemachtes Kreuz, wie zur Erinnerung. Nur dass das Datum auf dem Kreuz das des Folgetages ist - des Tages, an dem die Polizei ein gekidnapptes Mädchen in einem Kofferraum finden wird das sie zu einer online-Plattform führt, auf der die Teilnehmer keineswegs zimperlich mit einander umgehen. 

Als weitere Kreuze auftauchen beginnt für Dance ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit um einen Angreifer zu stoppen, der sowohl im Netz als auch in der realen Welt tödliche Rachepläne hegt....

The Last Testament

Ein irakischer Junge klaut eine antike Tonplatte aus einem lange vergessenen Gewölbe eines Museums in Bagdad...

Beim Versuch, einen historischen Vertrag zwischen Israel und Palästina abzuschließen, bahnt sich ein Mörder einen Weg durch die Menge und wird von Bodyguards erschossen. Doch er hält nur eine blutbefleckte Nachricht in der Hand....

In eine Abfolge scheinbar willkürlicher Morde wird Maggie Costello für Friedensverhandlungen geschickt. Belastet von privaten Problemen muss sie feststellen, dass die Morde doch nicht so willkürlich sind:  Getötet werden Historiker und Archäolgen, die die verborgenen Geheimnisse der Vergangenheit kennen könnten.

Costello wird bald nicht nur von allen Seiten durch gewaltbereite Extremisten bedroht - sie sieht sich auch in ein Geheimnis verwickelt, das auf dem letzten ungelösten Rätsel der Bibel beruhen könnte.  Und die Wahrheit herauszufinden könnte das Ende aller Kriege bedeuten - oder erst den Anfang....

Als er in seinem Wohnblock einen Fallschirmspringer sieht ist er entschlossen, mehr darüber zu erfahren - und bald springt Ethan täglich aus Flugzeugen und hat einen neuen Job im Free Fall Skydiving Centre und ein neues Leben.

Sanctuary

Bagdad, 2003:

Eine amerikanische Militäreinheit macht auf der Jagd nach Saddam Husseins Vertrauten eine entsetzliche Entdeckung: ein hypermodernes verborgenes Labor, in dem Dutzende Menschen nach grauenhaften Experimenten gestorben sind. In eine der Wände ist eine Schlange geritzt, die sich in ihren eigenen Schwanz beißt - der einzige rätselhafte Hinweis. 

 

Libanon, 2006:

Archäologin Evelyn Bishop bekommt von einem angsterfüllten Iraki ein antikes Buch mit eben dieser Schlage auf dem Umschlag zum Kauf angeboten, der glaubt, dass er als zweiter durch dieses Buch sterben wird.

 

So beginnt Raymond Khourys explosiver Roman in dem zwei Frauen einer mörderischen Spur antiker Hinweise folgen und den Zuhörer in einen Strudel aus Geheimnissen und Hochspannung ziehen.

The Conjuror's Bird

"A pacy confection of history, mystery and romance." The Times

 

"Despite being the leading expert in his field, Fitz has never really fulfilled his potential, never written the great book on extinct species that everyone expected from him when he was setting out. Suddenly, a figure from those days reappears in his life. The beautiful Gaby wants him to help find something that vanished over two hundred years ago from the collection of the pioneering naturalist Joseph Banks: a specimen known as The Mysterious Bird of Ulieta.

Unsure of the reasons behind this quest, but spurred on to join it by his beguiling lodger Katya, Fitz soon finds that the only way to solve the puzzle of the missing bird is to unravel the mystery of Banks's passionate affair with a young woman - Miss B. - who has disappeared from history as effectively as the creature he is hunting.

It is the story of her life - poignant, courageous, shocking - and of her relationship with Banks, which twines around the enigma of Fitz to produce a wonderful double-helix of secrets and surprises."

The Testament of Gideon Mack

"For Gideon Mack, faithless minister, unfaithful husband and troubled soul, the existence of God, let alone the Devil, is no more credible than that of ghosts or fairies. Until the day he falls into a gorge and is rescued by someone who might just be Satan himself.

Mack's testament - a compelling blend of memoir, legend, history and, quite probably, madness - recounts one man's emotional crisis, disappearance, resurrection and death. In also transports you into an utterly mesmerizing exploration of the very nature of belief."

Point Omega

"Don DeLillo has been 'weirdly prophetic about twenty-first-century America' (...). Now, in Point Omega, he looks into the mind and heart of a 'defense intellectual', one of the men involved in the management of the country's war machine.

Richard Elster was a scholar - an outsider - when he was called to a meeting with government war planners, asked to apply 'ideas and principles to such matters as troop deployment and counterinsurgency.' We see Elster at the end of his service. He has retreated to the desert, 'somewhere south of nowhere,' in search of space and geologic time. There he is joined by a filmmaker, Jim Finley, intent on documenting his experience. Finley wants to persuade Elster to make a one-take film, Elster its single character - 'Just a man and a wall.'

Weeks later, Elster's daughter Jessica visits - an 'otherworldly' woman from New York, who dramatically alters the dynamic of the story. The three of them talk, train their binoculars on the landscape and build an odd, tender intimacy, something like a family. Then a devastating event throws everything into question.

 

In this compact and powerful novel, it is finally a lingering human mystery that haunts the landscape of desert and mind."

Dinner for Two

"Music journalist Dave Harding has got it all: a nice flat, a cushy job, and freedom from having to book a babysitter when he wants to go out for an intimate dinner for two with his perfect partner, Izzy.

Except Dave's biological clock has started ticking. And when the magazine he works for folds, events are set in motion that will give birth to a whole new set of problems.

Finally persuaded to take a job as an agony uncle for Teen Scene magazine, cooler-than-cool Dave suddenly finds himself knee-deep in the adolescent outpourings of his readership. But one letter stands out from the rest. Thirteen-year-old Nicola O'Connell doesn't want advice about boys - she wants to know about Dave. Because she's convinced that Dave Harding is her dad. And she's got facts to prove it..."

A Certain Age

"In the tradition of Alan Bennett's Talking Heads come Lynne Truss's male monologues: six tales of fidelity, pride, friendship and family from the classic BBC Radio 4 series.

Six men have reached a certain age, their forty-something years, and each has a very different - and sometimes surprising - story to tell, from the brother who receives an unexpected letter to a compulsive philanderer and a news photographer sent on on an unusual assignment.

All are funny, touching and as beautifully observed as would be expected from the author of the phenomenal bestsellers Eats, Shoots & Leaves and Talk to the Hand."

Contains the stories The Father, The Son, The Husband, The Pedant, The Brother and The Married Man.

Get her off the Pitch

Get her off the Pitch is the story of one woman's foray into the very masculine and rather baffling world of sport. Lynne Truss, author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves, spent four years as an unlikely sports writer for The Times. It was a job that took her around the world (via the most difficult journeys and least glamoroous hotels) and introduced her to some of the greatest living sportsmen (and a lot of obstructive men with clipboards). During her time in the press-box she was cold-shouldered by fellow sports writers; tried unsuccessfully to interpret bizarre commentary and memorize results statistics; circled Wembley in an airship eating chocolate cake; wept at football matches and, much to her surprise, discovered a lasting love of golf."

Pilgrim State

"Pilgrim State is a stunning memoir that tells the story of Dorothy Walker - equal parts beautiful, loving, headstrong, brave and tragic. Her daughter Jacqueline lovingly recreates her life in this homage to a remarkable woman.

In the haunting opening pages set in 1951 at Pilgrim State mental facility in New York State, Dorothy has been forcibly sectioned and is battling to keep her children and her sanity. She will struggle with both all her life. Dorothy and her family eventually return to Jamaica before finally making  a home in post-Windrush London in the early 1960s.

Although Dorothy and her children face predjudice and loss, they are bound to each other by love and their unique sense of family. This will prove to be Dorothy's greatest gift. 

Pilgrim State marks the debut of an original and powerful voice that speaks for generations of women and resonates with readers long after the story ends."

Driving Miss Smith

Linda Smith had established herself as the funniest and best-loved comedian on BBC Radio 4, commenting on politics and the absurdities of modern life, before she died from cancer.

"In Driving Miss Smith Warren Lakin, Linda's partner for twenty-three years, tells Linda's life story. It is a witty and moving memoir told through a series of journeys: from car trips Linda took as a child to visit her 'sweet smiling fascist grandmother', to her family holidays 'abroad' in the Isle of Wight. We also accompany Warren and Linda as they drive between the picket lines of the Miners' Strike, and on through Linda's blossoming comedy career. 

It is a story that ends sadly with countless journeys to hospital and clinics as Linda's cancer took hold.

But Driving Miss Smith is, ultimately, a hopeful book and a fitting tribute to a life filled with warmth, courage and laughter."

In October1967, he was captured, arrested and unceremoniously executed. In his backback was this diary, a remarkable record of suffering and bravery, told with honesty and humility.

Published after his death, this is the account that helped catapult Che to fame around the world."

The Motorcycle Diaries

"In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on 'La Poderosa', the Powerful One: a 500ccn Norton. One of them was the twenty-three-year-old Che Guevara.

Written eight years before the Cuban revolution, these are Che's diaries - full of disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy and laddish improvisations. During his travels through Argentina, Chile, Peru and Venezuela, Che's main concerns are where the next drink is coming from, where the next bed is to be found and who might be around to share it.

Within a decade the whole world would know his name. His trip might have been the adventure of a lifetime - had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure."

"Even as a very young child, Simon King was passionate about the natural world. Being savaged by a rabid cheetah, charged at by rhinos and elephants and defecated upon by a long list of birds may sound like hell to some. But his experiences alongside all things furry, scaly, slimy and feathery have provided him with a rich bank of tales to relive and retell. (...) Simon has travelled to every continent and lived in extreme conditions from the remote desert to Arctic and Antarctic wilderness. Simon weaves his animal stories amongst encounters with extraordinary people and astonishing places, to give us a memoir of characteristic honesty and charm."

The Living Wisdom of Socrates

"Socrates created and embodied a living holistic philosophy that integrated mind, body and soul. Concerned solely with ethics, he asked the question that affects us all: What is the right way to live? (...) this clear and insightful audiobook presents a new, fully-rounded portrait of Socrates' philosophy, life and tragic death - drawing on the earliest, most authentic dialogues of Plato, but also on the more down-to-earth writings of Xenophon, another student of Socrates. Mark Forstater shows  how he was not just a thinker for 4th-century BC Athens, but can still help us find meaning in this new and troubled century.

The Royal British Legion - 90 Years of Heroes

"...the work of the Royal British Legion remains as essential as ever - it is Britain's most recognised and loved charity, with an active membership of over 350000 men and women. It has a universally recognised emblem in the poppy, and millions of people across the UK wear it with pride during the weeks leading up to Remebrance Sunday each year.(...)

Throughout the Legion's history, the nature of warfare has changed, but the need to honour and support the UK Armed Forces has remained a constant.

Analysing each decade of it's existence, we take a small sample of the many hundreds of thousands of heroes it has in its ranks, to promote its message for the twenty-first century, while looking back on the heroes from its past."
