He used to be on the bomb squad, but it's not until he transfers out that Chris Mankowski really begins juggling with dynamite. Rape and revenge are just the tip of the iceberg in a twisty tale that brings Detroit's denizens to life - and occasional death - in all their seedy glory. Electrifying, explosive, and unexpected, this is Elmore Leonard at his suspenseful best. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank Muller.

Two quirky and hilarious stories from the best-selling Diana Wynne Jones. Two groups of children learn that while you can choose your friends, dealing with your family can make you wish you could choose a different one…. 'The Four Grannies': Two children are left alone for a couple of days, while their parents go away on a business trip. They have four very different grandmas - a mean one, a snobby one, an anxious one, and a delicate one. Erg (the boy) tries to make all the grannies leave him alone, but manages to turn them into one ‘Super-Granny'…. 'Auntie Bea's Day Out': Annoying Auntie Bea always does things her way. And when she decides to take the three children (Nancy, Debbie and Simon) to the seaside, despite what the signs say, she is determined that they will sit on the small, fenced off and isolated island. It turns out to be a magical island though, and whisks her & the children (and dog) around to different places trying to get rid of them…. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Penelope Rawlins.

A town in Bizarro World, that is, where academic excellence is the fast track to popularity and Candace - yes, quiet, seemingly insecure Candace - is the reigning queen bee. Brynn’s not sure how she’ll ever fit in to this parallel universe, until one day she notices Candace crumbling under the weight of some serious self-imposed stress.

The Mystic Caravan Circus is a place of magic and mayhem. Unfortunately for Poet Parker these days, it's also packed full of lies. It's been more than a week since she found out an unsightly secret: Her boss Max is her boyfriend's father. Despite giving Max an ultimatum, he's yet to tell Kade Denton the truth, and that's left Parker in a sticky situation. When the circus goes to Nebraska, Poet can't dwell on her personal problems for long because a body is found in a nearby field and it's missing arms, legs and eyes. Everyone agrees there's something off about the death - other than the obvious that is. But no one can figure out what kind of force the folks of Mystic Caravan are facing off with next. Between the emotional distress, her best friend Luke threatening to release embarrassing photographs, and a local police presence that is suspicious, Poet has her hands full. That's on top of a new clown that makes everyone suspect he's up to no good even as he leaves the female population salivating. The clues come together slowly, and when the end comes, the enemy is someone no one saw coming. What happens when the face of evil looks like a victim? And, more importantly, what happens when all of the lies are eradicated and Poet is stripped bare and forced to tell the truth? It's another fun-filled outing for the Mystic Caravan Circus - as long as everyone survives to see another day, that is. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly.
