Shake hands forever by Ruth Rendell( Recording )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chief Inspector Wexford could discover no motive, no reason and no suspect. Probably he was reading meaning where there was none; probably Angela Hathall really had picked up a stranger, and that stranger had killed her. But why such doubt? Was Wexford becoming cynical and untrusting -- or was this one of the most ingenious crimes he had ever tackled?
Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett( )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel Beckett, one of the great avant-garde Irish dramatists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century, was born on 13 April 1906. He died in 1989. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. His centenary will be celebrated throughout 2006 with performances of his major plays, but the most popular of them all will be, without doubt, the play with which he first made his name, Waiting for Godot. It opened the gates to the theatre of the absurd as four men appear on the stage, apparently with purpose but (perhaps) waiting for someone called Godot. It is stark, funny, bemusing and still deeply affecting half a century since its first production. In this new recording for Audiobook, John Tydeman, for many years head of BBC Radio Drama, takes a fresh look at one of the milestones in Western drama

The latest victim in a series of apparently motiveless murders is found near Inez Ferry's antique shop in Maryebone. Someone saw a shadowy figure running away, but the only other clues are that the murderer usually strangles his victim and removes something personal, like a cigarette lighter or a necklace. The activities of the sinister 'Rottweiler' will exert a profound influence on the lives of a small group of people, especially when the suspicion emerges that one of them may be a homicidal maniac

Harry Painter hung for it, and Chief Inspector Wexford is certain they executed the right man. But Reverend Archery has doubts--because his son wants to marry the murderer's beautiful, brilliant daughter. He begins unravelling the past, only to discover that murder breeds murder--and often conceals even deeper secrets

15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sarah Hussein was not popular with many people in the community of Kingsmarkham. She was also the Reverend of St Peter's church.

In his retirement, the former Detective Chief Inspector is devoting much time to reading. He has little patience with Maxine's prattle. But when his old friend Mike Burden asks if he might like to assist on this case, Wexford is obliged to pay more precise attention to all available information. For all his experience and sophistication, Burden tends to jump to conclusions. But he is wise enough to listen to the man whose office he inherited, and whose experience makes him a formidable ally

Robinson Crusoe, the first English novel, was an immediate success when first published in 1719, and has been an internationally popular classic ever since.

Crusoe walking the limits of his small domain, a typical Englishman carrying his umbrella in the blazing tropics, is a figure familiar throughout the Western world

Crime can reach any town. Murder can touch any family. A lump of concrete dropped deliberately from a little stone bridge over a relatively unfrequented road kills the wrong person. The young woman in the car behind is spared. But only for a while. A few weeks later, George Marshalson lives every father's worst nightmare: he discovers the murdered body of his eighteen-year-old daughter on the side of the road. As a man with a strained father-daughter relationship himself, Wexford must struggle to keep his professional life as a detective separate from his personal life as husband and father. Particularly when a second teenage girl is murdered, a victim unquestionably linked to the first, and another family is shattered

PLAYAWAY. Wexford had almost made up his mind that he would never again set eyes on Eric Targo. And yet there he was, back in Kingsmarkham. Years earlier, when Wexford was a young police officer, a woman called Elsie Carroll had been found strangled in her bedroom. Although many still had their suspicions that her husband was guilty, no-one was convicted. Another woman was strangled shortly afterwards, and every instinct told Wexford that the killer was still at large. And it was Eric Targo; a psychopath who would kill again - container

Nostromo by Joseph Conrad( Recording )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the fictional South American country of Costaguana, Nostrome explores the volatile politics and crippling greed surrounding the San Tomé silver mine. The story of power, love, revolutions, loyalty and reward is told with richly evocative description and brilliantly realised characters. But, Nostromo is more than an adventure story; it is also a profoundly dark moral fable. Its language is as compellingly resonant as the sea itself; the characters absorbing and complex. It was Conrad's masterwork, a forerunner of Modernism, and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century
