Previously Feared Darkness: Robert Priest
In the new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Lisa Scottoline, Mary DiNunzio’s ruthless nemesis Nick Machiavelli is back...with a vengeance. When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination - claiming that they were not hired because they were men - Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to resign, claiming that there is some truth to this case. The plaintiffs’ lawyer is Nick Machiavelli, who has already lost to Mary once and is now back with a vengeance - determined not to not only win, but destroy the firm. It soon becomes clear that Machiavelli will do anything in his power to achieve his end...even after the case turns deadly. The stakes have never been higher for Mary and her associates as they try to keep Machiavelli at bay, solve a murder, and save the law firm they love...or they could lose everything they’ve worked for. Told with Scottoline´s trademark gift for twists, turns, heart, and humanity, this latest thriller asks the question: Is it better to be loved, or feared? Feared, the sixth entry in the acclaimed Rosato & DiNunzio series, expertly explores what happens when we are tempted to give in to our own inner darkness. 1. Language: English.

Penguin Classics presents Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, adapted for listening and available as a digital audiobook as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by David Threlfall, the star of the hit Channel 4 series, Shameless. The mind of man is capable of anything - because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future. What was there after all? Joy, fear, sorrow, devotion, rage - who can tell? But truth - truth stripped of its cloak of time. Let the fool gape and shudder - the man knows, and can look on without a wink; Marlow, a seaman, tells of a journey up the Congo. His goal is the troubled European and ivory trader Kurtz. Worshipped and feared by invaders as well as natives, Kurtz has become a godlike figure, his presence pervading the jungle like a thick, obscuring mist. As his boat labours further upstream, closer and closer to Kurtz’s extraordinary and terrible domain, so Marlow finds his faith in himself and civilization crumbling. Conrad’s Heart of Darkness has been considered the most important indictment of the evils of imperialism written to date. Part of a collection of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives, the Penguin English Library series features affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening. 1.

London, 1886: When a stranger with peculiar head injuries is admitted to Bethlem Asylum, the doctors are confounded by his permanent inability to recover his memory. Without any form of identity and suffering bizarre nightmares, the stranger soon finds out that he is somehow linked to a deceased nobleman who bequeaths him a farm in the Southern African Cape Colonies. After an attempt is made on his life by a clandestine order of assassins, he flees to Cape Town. Before long, his presence in the Cape Colonies is questioned, even feared, for the farm he had inherited has a sinister reputation already. By association, he is quickly blamed for an outbreak of brutal serial murders of which his memory loss does not absolve him. He meets Eleonora Rudd, daughter of De Beers magnate Charles Dunnell Rudd, and a reluctant romance ensues. Unfortunately, the corrupt Cape Town Police Chief and Eleonora´s fiancé uses his influence to turn the Cape Town people against the stranger who introduces himself as Poe.
