A History of What Comes Next: The captivating speculative fiction for fans of The Man in the High Ca

A History of What Comes Next: The captivating speculative fiction for fans of The Man in the High Ca

Brought to you by Penguin. Imagine everything you thought you knew about human progress was wrong. What would you do? Mia is not sure what she is, but she isn't human. Smarter, stronger than her peers, all she knows are the rules: there can never be three for too long; always run, never fight. When she finds herself in Germany, 1945, she must turn the Nazi's most trusted scientist with an offer: abandon the crumbling Nazi party, escape Germany with your life, come to work for the Americans building rockets. But someone is watching her work. An enemy who's smarter, stronger, decidedly not human and prepared to do anything to retrieve something ancient that was long lost. If only she had any idea what it was . . . © Sylvain Neuvel 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

William Shakespeare's Brexit: A Political Sh*tstorm in Five Acts

William Shakespeare's Brexit: A Political Sh*tstorm in Five Acts

Author: Boris Starling Narrator: Dugald Bruce Lockhart, Kate Robbins, Steve Nallon, Will Barton Release Date: 01/10/2019

All Brexit's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. . . Written by the Bard himself, with a little help from novelist Boris Starling, this wonderful comedy of errors retells the tragic story of the UK's acrimonious break from the EU, written in wonderful iambic pentameter. From Cameron and Osborne, through May and Gove, to Cummings and Boris, this is a story of cynical electioneering and poisoned political scheming, and a most original take on the defining event of our time. Featuring as hammy a cast of characters as ever graced The Globe, this is the perfect satire for anyone interested in politics, humour, or even a little bit of Am-dram. 'To leave or not to leave, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrag'd Remainers, Or to take arms against a sea of Leavers, And by opposing end them? To leave, to stay, No more; and by leaving to say we end The EU, and the thousand petty rules That we adhere to, - 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To stay, to leave; To stay, perchance to leave: ay, there's the rub; For in that move to leave what dreams may come, When we have shuffl'd off this Brussels yoke...' BORIS JOHNSON

Prague Spring

Author: Simon Mawer Narrator: Dugald Bruce Lockhart Release Date: 01/08/2018

In the summer of 1968, the year of Prague Spring with a Cold War winter, Oxford students James Borthwick and Eleanor Pike set out to hitchhike across Europe, complicating a budding friendship that could be something more. Having reached southern Germany, they decide on a whim to visit Czechoslovakia, where Alexander Dubcek's 'socialism with a human face' is smiling on the world. Meanwhile, Sam Wareham, First Secretary at the British embassy in Prague, observes developments in the country with a diplomat's cynicism and a young man's passion. In the company of Czech student Lenka Konecková, he finds a way into the world of Czechoslovak youth, with all its hopes and new ideas; now, nothing seems off-limits behind the Iron Curtain. But the great wheels of politics are grinding in the background; Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev is making demands of Dubcek, and the Red Army is massing on the borders.

The Last Hour

Author: Harry Sidebottom Narrator: Dugald Bruce Lockhart Release Date: 01/03/2018

If the Emperor dies, every single person he loves will die. He must run, bluff, hide and fight his way across the Seven Hills. He must reach the Colosseum, and the Emperor.

The Seabird's Cry

The Seabird's Cry

Author: Adam Nicolson Narrator: Dugald Bruce Lockhart Release Date: 01/02/2018

Life itself could never have been sustainable without seabirds. As Adam Nicolson writes: "They are bringers of fertility, the deliverers of life from ocean to land." A global tragedy is unfolding. Even as we are coming to understand them, the number of seabirds on our planet is in freefall, dropping by nearly 70% in the last sixty years, a billion fewer now than there were in 1950. Of the ten birds in this audiobook, seven are in decline, at least in part of their range. Extinction stalks the ocean and there is a danger that the grand cry of the seabird colony, rolling around the bays and headlands of high latitudes, will this century become little but a memory. Seabirds have always entranced the human imagination and NYT best-selling author Adam Nicolson has been in love with them all his life: for their mastery of wind and ocean, their aerial beauty and the unmatched wildness of the coasts and islands where every summer they return to breed. The seabird's cry comes from an elemental layer in the story of the world. Over the last couple of decades, modern science has begun to understand their epic voyages, their astonishing abilities to navigate for tens of thousands of miles on featureless seas, their ability to smell their way towards fish and home. Only the poets in the past would have thought of seabirds as creatures riding the ripples and currents of the entire planet, but that is what the scientists are seeing now today.

What She Knew: A Novel

What She Knew: A Novel

Author: Gilly Macmillan Narrator: Dugald Bruce Lockhart, Dugald Bruce-Lockhart, Penelope Rawlins Release Date: 01/12/2015

In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One. In a heartbeat, everything changes… Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It’s an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry—until Ben vanishes. Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel’s newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public’s attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion. As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent’s nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most. Where is Ben? The clock is ticking...
