Here are the Audiobook on CD releases for this week, starting 10 October 2016:

Bridget Jones's Baby by Helen Fielding
As Bridget careers towards baby-deadline, a series of classic Bridget Jones moments finally leads her into pregnancy. But but just not quite as intended. It's a pregnancy full of cheesy potatoes, outlandish advice from Drunken Singletons and Smug Mothers, chaos at scans and childbirth classes, high jinks and romance, joy and despair. But all of it dominated by the terribly awkward question: Who's the father?
The General vs. The President by H. W. Brands
The riveting story of how President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur squared off to decide America's future in the aftermath of World War II.
Hag-seed by Margaret Atwood

Order to Kill by Vince Flynn
Mitch Rapp is used to winning. But now the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman. Soon, it becomes alarmingly clear that the forces in Moscow are bent on fomenting even more chaos and turmoil in the Middle East, and Rapp must go deep into Russian territory, posing as an American ISIS recruit. There, he uncovers a plan much more dangerous and insidious than he ever expected, one that could have far-reaching and catastrophic consequences.

During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?
Triple Crown by Felix Francis
Jeff Hinkley, investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, has been seconded to the US Federal Anti-Corruption in Sports Agency (FACSA) where he has been asked to find a mole in their organization—an informant who is passing on confidential information to those under suspicion in American racing. Jeff goes undercover as a groom at Belmont Park racetrack in New York, hunting for corrupt individuals who will stop at nothing - including murder - to capture the most elusive prize in world sport, the Triple Crown.

Escape Clause by John Sandford
Two large Siberian tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are very concerned that they've been stolen for their organs.

Virgil's relationship with his girlfriend, Frankie, has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie's sister, Sparkle, moves in for the summer, things get a lot more complicated. Sparkle has a roving eye, and it's fixed right on Virgil.

She spent her afternoons at the park with her best friend Leo Martin.

The two friends make a pact: come what may, they promise to have a future together.

Decades later in New York City, eleven-year-old Anna Rosen receives a mysterious envelope from Hannah, a great-aunt she has never met but who raised her deceased father. Anna and her mother travel to Havana to meet Hannah, who is turning eighty-seven years old.

The Girl from Venice by Martin Cruz Smith
Born to a wealthy Jewish family, Giulia is on the run from the Wehrmacht SS. Cenzo chooses to protect Giulia rather than hand her over to the Nazis.
