Audiobook On CD New Releases

Audiobooks on CD
Here are the Audiobook on CD releases for this week, starting 17 October 2016:

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. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes their parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get, and keep, what they need. As Virgil is about to find out. Then there's the home front. 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.
German Girl by Armand Correa
In 1939, Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. Her family moved in Berlin's highest social circles, admired by friends and neighbors. She spent her afternoons at the park with her best friend Leo Martin. In an instant, the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; their fine possessions are hauled away, and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home. 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. Hannah reveals old family ties, recounts her journey aboard the Saint Louis and, for the first time, reveals what happened to her father and Leo.
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. This act of kindness leads them into the world of Partisans, random executions, the arts of forgery and high explosives, Mussolini’s broken promises, the black market and gold, and, everywhere, the enigmatic maze of the Venice Lagoon.
Honor Bound by B. J. Daniels
Ainsley Hamilton has always been the responsible one of the family. As the oldest daughter of presidential candidate Buckmaster Hamilton, she's also a potential target. For months she's sensed someone following her. When an expedition to scout locations for a commercial takes a terrifying turn, she's rescued by a natural-born cowboy who tempts the good girl to finally let loose.

Sawyer Nash knows just how reckless it is to fall for someone he's gone undercover to protect. Yet masquerading as an extra on set, he starts to see beneath Ainsley's controlled facade. And with the election - and a killer - drawing closer, Sawyer stands to lose not just his job and his life but the woman for whom he'd gladly risk both.
IQ by Joe Ide
A resident of one of LA's toughest neighborhoods uses his blistering intellect to solve the crimes the LAPD ignores.
Paris for One by Jojo Moyes
Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She's never even been on a romantic weekend away - to anywhere - before. Traveling abroad isn't really her thing. But when Nell's boyfriend fails to show up for their mini-vacation, she has the opportunity to prove everyone - including herself - wrong. Alone in Paris, Nell finds a version of herself she never knew existed: independent and intrepid. Could this turn out to be the most adventurous weekend of her life?
Pharaoh by Wilbur Smith
This sixth book in the Egyptian series continues the story of the wise and gifted Eunuch slave Taita. A glorious civilization, an epic journey, a heroic battle, an enduring love. Here is a magnificent, richly imagined saga that explodes with all the drama, mystery and rage of a bygone time.
Seduced by Randy White
Five hundred years ago, Spanish conquistadors planted the first orange seeds in Florida, but now the whole industry is in trouble. The trees are dying at the root, weakened by infestation and genetic manipulation, and the only solution might be somehow, somewhere, to find samples of the original root stock. No one is better equipped to traverse the swamps and murky backcountry of Florida than Hannah, but once word leaks out of her quest, the trouble begins.
Here are the Audiobook on CD releases for next week, starting 24 October 2016

Faller by Will McIntosh
Day One: No one can remember anything - who they are, family and friends, or even how to read. Reality has fragmented and Earth consists of an islands of rock floating in an endless sky. Food, water, electricity - gone, except for what people can find, and they can't find much.

Faller's pockets contain tantalizing clues: a photo of himself and a woman he can't remember, a toy solider with a parachute, and a mysterious map drawn in blood. With only these materials as a guide, he makes a leap of faith from the edge of the world to find the woman and set things right.
Livia Lone by Barry Eisler
Seattle PD sex-crimes detective Livia Lone knows the monsters she hunts. Sold by her Thai parents along with her little sister, Nason; marooned in America; abused by the men who trafficked them... the only thing that kept Livia alive as a teenager was her determination to find Nason.
Not Dead Yet by Phil Collins
The long-awaited autobiography from Phil Collins, one of the bestselling music artists of all time. This is the rollercoaster journey from his beginnings as a child actor to his domination of the charts both as a solo artist and part of Genesis. His success is astounding, his music has global reach and his story is legendary.
Sex, Lies, and Serious Money by Stuart Woods
Stone Barrington returns in the unputdownable new thriller by number one New York Times best selling author Stuart Woods. Trouble always seems to find Stone Barrington, but it's never more than he can handle.
The Terranauts by T. C. Boyle
As climate change threatens the earth, eight scientists, four men and four women dubbed the "Terranauts," have been selected to live under glass in E2, a prototype of a possible off-earth colony.

The Terranauts must impress watchful visitors and a skeptical media curious to see if E2’s environment will somehow be compromised, forcing the Ecosphere’s seal to be broken - and ending the mission in failure.
The Whistler by John Grisham
Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct.

A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined.

It seems the judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way.

Greg wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. Greg files a complaint with the Board on Judicial Conduct, and the case is assigned to Lacy Stoltz, who immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous.
Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay McKenna
From the moment Roan Taggart picked up the pretty redhead at the Jackson Hole airport, his training and experience told him she was spooked. She’s left New York City to visit the Wind River Ranch, where Roan is a wrangler, and just as he can pick up a horse’s mood, he can feel the tension coming off her body. And that vulnerability is triggering all his protective instincts...

Audiobook On CD New Releases

Audiobooks on CD
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
A deposed artistic director teaches prison inmates while consulting with a fantasy child who has taken the place of the daughter he lost years earlier.
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.
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years' experience. 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.
