For awhile, the rock festival at "Sundays" went well. The sun shone, the bands played, and everyone--except a few angry neighbors--seemed to enjoy themselves. Then the weather changed.

A sleeping life an Inspector Wexford mystery by Ruth Rendell ( Recording )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The body found under the hedge was that of a middle-aged woman. The gray eyes were wide and staring, and in them Inspector Wexford thought he saw a sardonic gleam. But that must have been his imagination. The woman was a stranger. There was nothing to give him her address, name or occupation, let alone any clues that might lead to her killer. Her death was rather unremarkable; it was her life that was a mystery
The rottweiler [a novel] by Ruth Rendell ( Recording )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The latest victim in a series of apparently motiveless murders is found near Inez Ferry's antique shop in Marylebone. Someone saw a shadowy figure running away, but the only other clues are that the murderer usually strangles his victim and removes something personal--life 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, expecially when the suspicion emerges that one of them may be a homicidal maniac
Shake hands forever by Ruth Rendell ( Recording )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 224 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 a tragiccomedy by Samuel Beckett ( )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 221 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
