A sleeping life : an Inspector Wexford mystery by Ruth Rendell( Recording )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 350 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

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( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2011 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 Marylebone.

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

Harry Painter hung for it, and Chief Inspector Wexford is certain they executed the right man.

He begins unravelling the past, only to discover that murder breeds murder--and often conceals even deeper secrets

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, still with that cocky, strutting walk. 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 that it was Eric Targo; a psychopath who would kill again

Nostromo by Joseph Conrad( Recording )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the fictional South American country of Costaguana, Nostromo 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
