To those who don't really know her, Kate Henderson's life must seem exceedingly ordinary. Civil servant, wife, parent of two teenagers, daughter of an Alzheimer's-stricken mother ... But she's also a senior MI6 officer, and right now she is nursing the political equivalent of a nuclear bomb. Kate's mission to bug an oligarch's super-yacht in Istanbul has yielded the startling intelligence that the British Prime Minister has prostate cancer - and that one of the leading candidates to replace him may be a Russian agent of influence. Is this 'intelligence' reliable - or is it an attempt to create chaos within the British hierarchy? Kate's bosses have their doubts. But when the PM suddenly announces his resignation, the hunt for the spy begins in earnest. It's a nightmarish task, made infinitely worse by the revelation that there may be another mole - codename Viper - at the heart of the Establishment. As the tension mounts, an operation that looked as if it might cost Kate her sanity appears poised to do much, much more than that ...

While the Republic of Cinnabar is at peace with the Alliance, warriors like Lt. Daniel Leary and Signals Officer Adele Mundy must find other work, like escorting a pair of wealthy nobles on an expedition to the back of beyond! The Princess Cecile, the corvette in which they carved their reputations in letters of fire, has been sold as a private yacht, but she still has her guns, her missiles, and her veteran crew. Daniel and Adele will need all of those things as they face winged dragons, an Alliance auxiliary cruiser, jealous lovers, and a mysterious oracle that really does foresee the future. That won't be enough, though, when they penetrate a secret Alliance base and find a hostile fleet ready for a war that will sweep Cinnabar out of a strategically crucial arm of the galaxy. Preventing that will involve skill, courage, and more luck than a sane man could even pray for; and it will require a space battle on a scale that a tiny corvette like the Princess Cecile has no business being involved in. But she'll be in the middle of it anyway, because Daniel, Adele, and their Cinnabar crew would never turn their backs on a fight! BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author David Drake. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Victor Bevine, David Drake.

A brief history of the West Vancouver Police Department (Tiddly Cove P.D.) with an introduction to some of the characters that worked in the organization. The author then relates stories of his early days as a constable with some of the adventures he encountered which included wrestling with a cow on a local beach, investigating shoplifting gangs affiliated with the Hell's Angels outlaw biker gang. He also describes some novel ways that police officers dealt with motorists including an encounter that Constable Dave Marskell had with the mother of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and how Cst. Ed Fydirchuk dealt with "road rage". He exposes the listener to some of the humour that police officers use to deal with the stress and sometimes traumatic things they encounter in their workplace. The author then goes on to explore his career in criminal investigation when he is promoted to the rank of Detective. Again we see some of the humorous sides to police work, as well exploring the darker side of child sexual assault and the investigation that takes place before a prosecution. While the West Vancouver Police Department is a smaller one, approximately 100 sworn members, the investigations are far ranging and extend throughout North America and as far as Europe. The crimes of arson, extortion, fraud, robbery, and murder are all investigated. There is even an encounter with former members of The Mossad! Listeners will meet the prolific bank robber and purloiner of luxury yachts, Eric Valois, who would lead Detective Leishman on a chase throughout the USA before convincing a gullible Quebec Provincial Police Officer that he could solve the "Air India" bombing and having them assist him in escaping custody. After he was arrested in Greece for stealing a luxury yacht. He was declared dead when he jumped overboard while being escorted to prison, but was returned from the dead when he was arrested for drug dealing in the United Kingdom! 1. Language: English.

From award winner Julia Gregson, author of Jasmine Nights, this sweeping international bestseller brilliantly captures the lives of three young women on their way to a new life in India during the 1920s. As the Kaisar-I-Hind weighs anchor for Bombay in the autumn of 1928, its passengers ponder their fate in a distant land. They are part of the “Fishing Fleet”—the name given to the legions of English women who sail to India each year in search of husbands, heedless of the life that awaits them. The inexperienced chaperone Viva Holloway has been entrusted to watch over three unsettling charges. There’s Rose, as beautiful as she is naïve, who plans to marry a cavalry officer she has met a mere handful of times. Her bridesmaid, Victoria, is hell-bent on losing her virginity en route before finding a husband of her own. And shadowing them all is the malevolent presence of a disturbed schoolboy named Guy Glover. From the parties of the wealthy Bombay socialites to the poverty of Tamarind Street, from the sooty streets of London to the genteel conversation of the Bombay Yacht Club, East of the Sun takes us back to a world we hardly understand but yearn to know. This is a book that has it all: glorious detail, fascinating characters, and masterful storytelling.
