Jude races home to Fethering and her friend Carole with the news. And soon the pair are back in Fedborough, questioning the locals.

Gander At The Gate (Audio CD)
Rory O'Connor / Kevin Moore

The lyrical prose of Rory O'Connor tells of an Irish farmhouse, the family who lived there, and the community of which they were part. We discover the imaginings and adventures of the local 'goboys'; the widow Delia and her sons lost to America; and the eccentric Uncle Jack, full of 'riddles, and recitations, and the latest rhymes and small poems'. As the gander of the title - the fiercest beast of the farmyard - begins to intrude on his consciousness, O'Connor describes his youthful wonders and apprehensions, and the darker shadows cast by his father's experience in Ireland's civil war.

L is for Lawless: call it Kinsey Millhone in bad company. Call it a mystery without a murder, a treasure hunt without a map, a quest story with truly mixed-up motives. Call it the return of Kinsey as bad girl - quick-witted and quicksilvery, smart-mouthed and smart-alecky - poking her nose into everyone's dirty laundry as she joins up with a modern day Bonny and Clyde in a comedy that will take her halfway across the country and leave her with a major headache and an empty bank balance. America's favourite borderline delinquent is back with her one-liners on tap and her energy levels high...

She was the girl next door... From playing in their backyard to being taken in by Queenie when her own mother was killed in an air raid, Rosie Goodson had been part of the Gordillo family for as long as she could remember. She watched their business grow from a fruit and vegetable barrow to a chain of supermarkets - and as soon as she was old enough, she went to work in the head office. But passion, bitterness and her unhappy marriage to the selfish wastrel Mickey Gordillo alienated her from them; for in her heart Rosie carried an undying love for a man she could never marry... A warm-hearted family saga with a delightful and authentic West London setting.

Blackstone's Pursuits (Audio CD)
Quintin Jardine / Joe Dunlop

The first in Quintin Jardine's highly popular Oz Blackstone series When Private Enquiry Agent Oz Blackstone opens the door of the flat in Eberneezer Street, the sight that greets him isn't quite what he's looking for. Diminutive stockbroker Willie Kane - reclining on the bed with a large knife still embedded in him - is clearly no longer in a position to assist Oz in recovering the nine hundred grand he's stolen and secreted in a numbered Swiss bank account. Nor is Oz going to get any assistance from Willie's partner in crime, aspiring actress Dawn Phillips, who seems to have flown the coop. Oz's finder's fee is beginning to look a distant prospect - when in walks Dawn's blonde, brown-eyed sister, Primavera Phillips. The trouble is, Prim Phillips is the most irresistible woman Oz has ever seen...

High Hopes: My Autobiography (Audio CD)
Ronnie Corbett / Ronnie Corbett

"Before I begin, I ought to say that even though I was abandoned as a baby on a mountainside and brought up by a she-wolf, before becoming a deckhand, jumping ship in Macau and getting stabbed in the waterfront area - which can be very painful - in a fight over the last green Fruit Pastille, I am not going to tell that story. There is no mention of my time as a lumberjack, and my career as a double-agent remains a closed book. Anyway, this is the much more exciting story of how I, Ronald Balfour Corbett, the son of a baker in Edinburgh, became convinced that I had to become an actor. It is the story of how I pursued that goal and eventually achieved it, along the way finding fame as one of the Two Ronnies, and encountering some extraordinary characters."

Crane (MP3 CD)
James Pattinson / David Tarkenter

Paul Crane had not altogether liked the look of Skene and West when they turned up at his north Norfolk cottage and made him an offer he could not refuse, but his chequered past had long since taught him not to be particular. Down on his luck since eighteen, when he was picked up on Liverpool Street Station by the decidedly odd Heathcliff, Crane promptly teamed up with a young thief named Charlie Green. Only when he fell in love with Penelope was there any hope of going straight. And perhaps he would have stuck to his promise if the chance of making a million had not, as it were, dropped into his lap.

K Is For Killer (Audio CD)
Sue Grafton / Liz Ross

"In Santa Teresa, California, approximately eighty-five per cent of all criminal homicides are resolved. The victim of unresolved homicides I think of as the unruly dead: restless, dissatisfied, longing for release. In the hazy zone where wakefulness fades into sleep I can sometimes hear them whisper the names of their attackers. I lie awake, listening, hoping to catch a syllable, a phrase, straining to discern in that roll-call of conspirators the name of one killer. Lorna Kepler's murder ended up affecting me that way." Lorna Kepler was beautiful and wilful, a loner who couldn't resist flirting with danger. She had also been found dead in mysterious circumstances and her death pulls Kinsey Mullhone into a netherworld of deception, betrayal and unavenged murder.

Katie Wilkinson has found the perfect man at last - but one day he disappears from her life, leaving behind only a diary for her to read. The diary was written by a new mother as a keepsake for her baby son. In it she touchingly recounts the initial romance between herself and the baby's father, and the unparalleled joy that motherhood has brought her. As Katie reads this moving account, it becomes clear that the lover who has left her is the same man as the husband and the father in the diary. She reads on, filled with terror and hope as she struggles to understand what has happened - and whether her new love has a prayer of surviving. An unforgettable love story, at once heartbreaking and full of hope.
