When a major Parisian modern art event gets unexpected attention on live TV, Chief of Police Nico Sirsky and his team of elite crime fighters rush to La Villette park and museum complex. There, renowned artist Samuel Cassian is inaugurating the first archeological dig of modern art, 27 years after burying the leftovers of a banquet. In front of reporters from around the world, excavators uncover a skeleton. Could it be the artist's own son? And does that death have anything to do with the current string of nightclub murders by the "Paris Butcher"? On the site of the French capital's former slaughterhouses, the investigation takes Nico and France's top criminal investigation division from artists' studios to autopsy theaters and nightclubs in hopes of tracking down the murderer who has turned this Paris park into a city of blood. 1.

Michel Russell, master of the gay erotic fiction genre, takes us to the exotic island of Papua, New Guinea, for a tale of torrid sex and drama unfolding against a back drop of one of the most beautiful camps and savage islands in the world.When Marc and Frances Fairchilde, a childless couple in their late 20s, move to Australia from England, they do not realise that another move to Papua, New Guinea, will be in the offing. Marc has been offered a job with the UN, little realising that their life on the beautiful, volatile - yet savage - island would be completely changed by a variety of characters coming into their lives. Some are young, some old, some sexy, and some larger than life. Set against a volcanic background, emotions are tried and tested to the limit.Soon Francis is returning to England after her husband is charged with murder, and a more dramatic story takes hold. The volcano erupts, and with her husband missing and presumed dead, she and their baby travel back to the deadly isle. Once there, her baby is kidnapped and she turns in desperation to an odd couple who run a nightclub for help. She also seeks help of her friend, Mamma Mia.Even more dramatic consequences unfold and unforgettable characters appear, including a sex-change nympho nightclub queen, two hustlers, a pair of innocent but naughty twins, and an inevitably raunchy lady in her 80s. The author has woven a highly charged tapestry of characters that is very modern - in an old-fashioned way. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Behr.

The latest war novel from the New York Times best-selling author and "modern-day master of the genre" (New York Newsday) Alan Furst. Alan Furst's latest novel takes place in the secret hotels, nightclubs, and cafes of occupied Paris and the villages of France during the spring of 1941, when Britain was losing the war. Many of the characters are resistance fighters who run an escape line for British airmen down to Spain; they include men and women, old and young, all strong - an aristocrat, a Jewish teacher - and the hero is a hero, has a gun, and uses it. Some of Furst's former characters - including S. Kolb, the spy; and Max de Lyon, former arms dealer, now a nightclub owner - return. A Hero of France is sure to please existing Furst fans and attract new ones. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Gerroll.

Afterlife...just some gothic nightclub where gossip is fuelled by the presence of a rich and unearthly, handsome family or afterlife...the strange place where time seems to stand still and guests feel the presence of something more powerful held within the confines of the VIP. Keira is new to this small, cold town and is running from a past that seems to feast on her darkest memories. She finds living with her sister away from English soil to be just the ticket to the new life she is trying desperately to find. So when the offer of a job at the infamous gothic nightclub Afterlife comes along she thinks that lady luck has finally found her. That is until its seductively dark and forbidding owner Dominic Draven sets eyes on her. All at once she is captivated and plunged into a world she never knew existed, but the deeper her obsession with Draven becomes, the harder it is to decide...should she stay and continue to work within the shadows of the supernatural or should she run from a madness she thinks may consume her? Warning: This audiobook not only has sexual content but is amazingly addictive, with its dark mystery, haunting horror, seductive twists and one sexy dark lord that has the listener drooling every time the name Draven is heard! This audiobook has been written by an UK author with a mad sense of humour. Which means the following story contains a mixture of Northern English slang, dialect, regional colloquialisms and other quirky spellings that have been intentionally included to make the story and dialogue more realistic for modern day characters. 1.

Slot machine gambling for entertainment has become a part of society that is as common as the nightclub. In fact many people who once attended nightclubs find that slot machines can be more exciting than most popular modern nightclubs. One very important negative affect of playing the slot machines is the fact that they can be more addictive than the drugs some people use before and after attending night lubs. Another important fact is that slot machine gambling is one of the most expensive entertainment habits a person can have. With that said, this book has been written to make the listener aware of the good, the bad, and the outright ugly effects that gambling can have on one's life and their family's life . Please listen to this book as often as possible and be aware of its content if you or your loved ones are casino slot machine players. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jen Watson.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Robert Stone receives critical acclaim for the philosophical layers of his writing, as well as the intensity of his multidimensional characters. Setting this deeply provocative, best-selling novel in modern day Jerusalem, Stone puts a disillusioned American journalist adrift in the supercharged atmosphere at the end of the millennium. Christopher Lucas, unsure of his own beliefs, is wandering through Jerusalem, working on an article about religious mania. When he meets Sonia Barnes, dusky nightclub singer, devoted Sufi and mystic, he is entranced. As Sonia helps Lucas meet some of the visionaries and gurus who fill the city, the two suddenly find that they have become pawns in a fanatical bombing plot. Its target is no less than the Temple Mount, the ancient city's holiest site. Through visions ranging from Armageddon to Paradise, Damascus Gate captures the whirlwinds of spiritual fervor that swirl through Jerusalem. George Guidall's narration adds dramatic shadings to the physical and psychological landscapes Lucas traverses in this crossroads of nations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Guidall.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Tracking of a Russian Spy exhibits the harrowing consequences that can emerge when love, or something like it, intersects with modern-day espionage. Swenson details the perplexing set of events that follow his encounter with a beautiful stranger in a dusky New York City nightclub. The woman in question is Katya and as the two grow closer Swenson wonders whether there might be more to this woman than she lets on. His suspicions are only confirmed when, in the summer of 2010, Katya disappears after the arrest of ten Russian Americans charged with spying for the Kremlin, one of whom is the now infamous Anna Chapman. In search for answers that have occupied him for more than two years, Swenson makes a sojourn to Moscow where the account of a relationship cut short emerges as a panoramic take on high-tech espionage, Soviet "closed cities", ongoing vestiges of the Cold War, and, perhaps, the ways in which secrets and attractions exist in a pervasively networked world. 1.
