Audie Award Finalist, Fantasy, 2014 Another day, another apocalypse.... James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in L.A. But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods - and natural-born killers - on his tail. But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: MacLeod Andrews.

JJ Justice has spent her adulthood lost and alone and vulnerable to the haunting of a past she can´t remember. It´s no wonder she feels different from other people, and not surprising that she chose the police force as a way of standing up for others who are defenseless against the evils of the world. But when her only friend and partner is brutally murdered by a creature not of this world, JJ discovers a greater purpose. She is called to hunt the monsters only she can see. Once again, she resigns herself to living her life alone. Guardian of the Race, Bernardo ad Tormeo, longs for a woman of his own, one that´s as fun loving and loyal as his Liege Lord´s Lady, Grace, and as soft and gentle as his fellow Guardian´s mate, Hope, but the chances of meeting such a woman seem slim to none. What, with the nightly patrols and his gaming business, he hasn´t the time to go searching for love. Besides, he´s seen too many matings that didn´t work out. Nardo is sworn to protect his people and their human cousins from the demons who cross over from the Otherworld. He never thought he would be hunting a vampire; just like he never thought of falling in love with a leather clad ex-cop who can kick demon butt with the best of them. How do you romance a woman who thinks more of knives than roses? And how do you help her fight the demons of her soul when she can´t remember who they are? Nardo doesn´t know, but he´s determined to find out. He only hopes he and his new love can find the answers before a monster from Joy´s past takes away the only woman he will ever love. 1.

Katharine Lawrence has no idea what hit her. The attack came out of nowhere. Only hours earlier she had been enjoying a girls-only weekend with an old college friend. Now she finds herself lying bound and gagged on her kitchen floor, staring with terrified eyes at her friend Lisa while two masked gunmen search her house for - what? She doesn´t know. She knows only that, unless they can escape, whatever it is they are searching for could end up getting both her and Lisa killed. But Katharine´s nightmare is just beginning. When she awakens in the hospital, her nose crushed, her body battered, her brain tells her that things aren´t right - and it´s not the attack that´s disorienting her. She doesn´t recognize herself when she looks in the mirror: her slim body, her manicured hands, her blond bob. And the smiling, handsome doctor at her bedside - Dr. Dan Howard - is familiar, but in a totally unfamiliar way. Perhaps the trauma of the attempt on her life has given her some kind of weird amnesia. She´s twenty-nine, the special assistant to the head of the CIA, and she´s lucky to be alive. She also knows she can trust no one. Acting on instinct, Katharine runs for her life, with Dan, her newfound protector, at her side. By turns grateful and unnerved by his presence, and unable to shake a feeling of profound dread, she allows him to spirit her to a secluded safe house. Instead of finding a haven, they stumble into a tangled web of government conspiracy, and Katharine is left confused, frightened, and desperate to uncover the truth. As the pair is drawn further into this shadowy world where almost nothing is as it seems, as fear gives way to a firestorm of attraction, the cat-and-mouse game grows more deadly, and soon both their lives are at stake. 1.

A deranged man hears voices urging him, ´´Kill the doctors!´´ Masquerading as a patient, he is admitted into a ward at Isleworth General Hospital, a sprawling converted Victorian workhouse directly beneath the flightpath into Heathrow Airport. When he attempts to stab the medical senior registrar during a ward round, slim, slight student-nurse Emma Gibbs intervenes to save the doctor´s life. A patient is murdered on Ward Four: death by suffocation. Detective Superintendent Charles Butter and his sergeant Timothy Gately investigate. No motive is found; the killing appears to be random. Next, surgical registrar James Fergusson dies - again by suffocation. All who ever came in contact with him seem to have wanted him dead: two rival Soho criminal gangs, the medical senior registrar Gilmore Cameron (with whom he had previously crossed swords), even Matron. To add to the list of suspects, the police discover another of the hospital´s doctors had been an army sniper, responsible for the death of the two leaders of the EOKA organisation in Cyprus during the terrorist uprising. Could this be the killer? The murders impinge on the lives of Ward Sister Celia Foster (searching for the love she had lost as a teenager), and the senior house officer Adam Turner, who has fallen under the spell of Emma Gibbs. Adam becomes the third victim. His twin, Simon, has communicated remotely with Adam since they were very small. Now - even miles away in his Hampstead general practice - he senses that his brother is in mortal danger, and rushes to save him; but will he be in time? 1. Language: English.
