Only Harry Bosch can uncover LA's darkest secrets in this new gripping thriller from global best seller Michael Connelly. Read by Titus Welliver, star of Bosch. 'What do you want me to do?' Bosch asked again. 'I want you to find someone for me,' Vance said. 'Someone who might not have ever existed.' Harry Bosch is working as a part-time detective in the town of San Fernando outside of Los Angeles when he gets the invitation to meet with the ageing aviation billionaire Whitney Vance.

Titus Welliver has a brilliant gravelly voice perfect for Harry Bosch. I loved the weaving of the storylines with all the twists and turns. Another great Harry Bosch novel from Michael Connelly

Fifteenth-century Spain is rent with intrigue and threatened by civil war. Here, the young Isabella becomes the pawn of her half-crazed mother and a virtual prisoner at the licentious court of her half-brother, Henry IV. At just sixteen years old, is she already fated to be the victim of the Queen's revenge, the Archbishop's ambition and the lust of lecherous Don Pedro Girón?

Having enjoyed Jean Plaidy books in my teens over thirty years ago I was nervous about returning to them. Would they seem old fashioned? Would I still enjoy them as much? It didn't seem old fashioned and was thoroughly enjoyable. The story of Isabella was new to me and I feel I'd like to know more. Jilly Bond was a good narrator with so many "voices" that I forgot it was just one reader.

Charles Paris is his own worst enemy, a louche lush who can resist anything except temptation - especially in the form of women and alcohol. He’s been out of work so long now he feels he may never get a job and he’s driving Frances, his semi-ex-wife, mad. So when he’s offered a small role in a play, she nearly pushes him out of the door. But it seems that ‘The Message is Murder’ is such a terrible production that someone wants to kill off the cast.
