  • "Target by Simon Kernick"

    Overall

    Absolutely outstanding - a riveting listen - a high octane crime story with breathtaking twists and turns. One of the best of the 40 or so audio books of this genre that I have listened to whilst out walking or driving over the last 12 months. Mike Bolt and Tina Boyd at their very best. Also brilliantly read. I will definitely buy more by this author.

    When writer Rob Fallon gets drunk one night and ends up joining his friend's girlfriend, Jenny, back at her apartment in London's West End, he's feeling guilty before anything's even happened. But guilt quickly turns to shock when a sequence of events put him in the centre of a mystery and a deadly race against time.

  • "Hammond Innes The Wreck of the Mary..."

    Overall

    This is a wonderful tale, woven by Hammond Innes and brilliantly narrated by Bill Wallis. He conveys the hardship and completely brings to life the tough and miserable conditions through which the main characters endure - a truly great story teller. For anyone who has ever sailed around the Channel Islands area then this is a must. I really wish that there were more of these classic books (set in the late 40s early 50s) by authors such as Hammond Innes and Neville Shute on audio book. Please record some more Hammond Innes

    They dismissed the Mary Deare as 'a piece of leaking ironmongery taken off the junk heap'. For 40 years this 6,000-ton freighter had tramped the seas, suffered shipwreck twice, and been torpedoed three times in two world wars. Then one March night, battered and bruised and empty, she emerged from severe Biscay gales into the English Channel - and into the newspaper headlines. Here was a ship of mystery and tragedy... in one of the greatest sea stories of all time.

    Dan Brown's new novel, Inferno, features renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in the heart of Europe, where Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred around one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces. As Dan Brown comments: "Although I studied Dante's Inferno as a student, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world."

    When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....

    With an introduction read by Max Hastings. Bomber Command's offensive against the cities of Germany was one of the epic campaigns of the Second World War. More than 56,000 British and Commonwealth aircrew and 600,000 Germans died in the course of the RAF's attempt to win the war by bombing. The struggle began in 1939 with a few score primitive Whitleys, Hampdens and Wellingtons, and ended six years later with 1,600 Lancasters, Halifaxes, and Mosquitoes razing whole cities in a single night.

    Mr George Smiley is small, podgy, and at best, middle-aged. He is disillusioned, wrestles with idleness, and has been deserted by his beautiful wife. He is also compassionate, ruthless and a senior British intelligence officer in short-lived retirement from the Circus the British Secret Service organisation situated in London. But Moscow centre has infiltrated a mole into the Circus and it's more than likely that the perpetrator is Karla Smiley's old adversary and his opposite number in Moscow.
