The host, Indira Naidoo Harris, conducted the interview with Muse first, followed by the interview with Ram. When we were young, many of us learned that stories have morals — that tales we tell each other convey not only entertainment or information, but meaning and cautions and wisdoms as well. But those compare with hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who may have been killed in the past six years, and 2 million Vietnamese dead in that war. Series TimeRiders series 8 of 6. Animal planet Colt Lawless is on the run, suddenly famous, and more than a little superhuman.
She tells Brooke she is hiring her for two reasons: to protect her island and legacy from those who would despoil her land, and secondly, to help her make amends with the heirs of the long dead women who were her closest friends, the girls of The High Tide Club—so named because of their youthful skinny dipping escapades—Millie, Ruth and Varina. To fulfill a dying woman's wishes, Brooke must find Josephine's friends' descendants and bringing them together on Talisa for a reunion of women who've actually never met.
But in doing so, Brooke unleashes the makings of a scandal that could make someone rich beyond their wildest dreams … or cause them to be in the crosshairs of a murderer. In his trademark schoolboy outfit, Angus rose from the obscurity of working—class Glasgow and Sydney to become hard rock's greatest guitarist. Soon, Jen is arrested for a crime committed in her neighbour's house, and the police have damning evidence.
Jen wonders, is she losing her mind, or is she being framed? Desperate to clear her name, Jen must untangle a chilling web of lies, and there's only one suspect on her list: her ex, Charlie's father. But someone is watching her every move — and it isn't just Jen who is in danger. They're watching her child too.
Can Jen uncover the dark truth before it's too late? An assistant clerk at Agra Central Jail, he suddenly found himself a personal attendant to the Empress of India herself. Within a year, he was established as a powerful figure at court, becoming the queen's teacher, or Munshi. Devastated by the death of John Brown, her Scottish gillie, the queen had at last found his replacement, but her intense and controversial relationship with the Munshi led to a near revolt in the royal household.
Yet, at its heart, it is a tender love story between an ordinary Indian and his elderly queen a relationship that survived the best attempts to destroy it. But it looks as if artist Effie Garrand has come to stay. When Hamish Macbeth calls on her he's amazed to find the woman in residence after a particularly harsh winter. Unfortunately, Effie is also quite delusional, having convinced herself that fellow local artist Jock Fleming is in love with her, and that they are engaged.
But after a lover's scrap with Jock, Effie is found dead, poisoned by hemlock. Suicide or murder? One such lies outside the village of Drim. Hamish begins to hear reports that this castle is haunted and lights have been seen there at night, but he assumes it's some children or maybe the local lads going there to smoke pot, or, worse, inject themselves with drugs.
Hamish says to his policeman, Charlie 'Clumsy' Carson, that they will both spend a night there. The keening wind explains the ghostly noises, but when Charlie falls through the floor, Hamish finds the body of a dead man propped up in a corner of the cellar. After Charlie is airlifted to the hospital, Chief Detective Inspector Blair arrives to investigate the body, but there is none to be found.
Dismissed as a drunk making up stories, Hamish has to find and identify the body and its killer before the 'ghost' can strike again. She has been brutally attacked and the criminal is on the loose. But upon further investigation, Hamish discovers that she was lying about the crime.
So when the same woman calls him back about an intruder, he simply marvels at her compulsion to lie. This time, though, she is telling the truth. Her body is found in her home and Hamish must sort through all of her lies to solve the crime. They strain to see the road ahead — and then suddenly brake, screeching to a halt.
Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights, a body hangs from a gnarled tree at the edge of town.

Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion a little glad for the excitement, to tell the truth, after a long run of lost cats and divorces on the books. But Sumpton Harcourt is a small and private village, she finds — a place that poses more questions than answers.
And when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation — and even her life. On the run and exhausted by life in the shadows, Gwendolyn launches herself on a global quest to seize control of a dead criminal mastermind's lost fortune. With the help of Terrance Mutai, her friend from New York and one of the only people she trusts, she dives headlong into a world of money, espionage, and betrayal.
But with enemies closing in around her, can she trust anyone? Even herself?

This is an epic story of six young, adventurous Somalian's who have decided that the lure and excitement of high seas piracy is the life for them they are willing.
In , a 26—year—old programmer named Ross Ulbricht launched the ultimate free market: the Silk Road, a clandestine Web site hosted on the Dark Web where anyone could trade anything — drugs, hacking software, forged passports, counterfeit cash, poisons — free of the government's watchful eye. Ross embraced his new role as kingpin, taking drastic steps to protect himself — including ordering a hit on a former employee. As Ross made plans to disappear forever, the Feds raced against the clock to catch a man they weren't sure even existed, searching for a needle in the haystack of the global Internet.
Drawing on exclusive access to key players and two billion digital words and images Ross left behind, New York Times bestselling author Nick Bilton offers a tale filled with twists and turns, lucky breaks and unbelievable close calls. It's a story of the boy next door's ambition gone criminal, spurred on by the clash between the new world of libertarian—leaning, anonymous, decentralised Web advocates and the old world of government control, order and the rule of law.
Filled with unforgettable characters and capped by an astonishing climax, American Kingpin might be dismissed as too outrageous for fiction. But it's all too real. Her daughters are a handful and Clara, a senior cardiac specialist, has a new job to cope with … For Ania, meeting Clara Casey is a miracle: she had never intended to leave her beloved Poland, but after the love of her life has turned sour, her world seems rather empty.
Perhaps a new job in a new country will mend her broken heart? Declan is looking forward to joining the clinic — but what should have been a straightforward six—month posting brings him far more than he expected. Nancy, Dee, Kev and Celia — each have their own secret story, unknown to their fellow passengers. And of course Tom himself has his own reasons for returning home so regularly … Once again, Maeve Binchy has conjured up a cast of very human characters with real joys and real sorrows, portrayed with her trademark wit, compassion and warmth.
Filled with her delicious humour and warmth, the 22 stories in London Transports will delight and captivate as they take us to a place that is far away and yet so familiar. Where having an affair with a married man brings one woman to a turning point; where another finds that looking for an apartment to share can be a risky business. Where nosing into a secretary's life can have shocking results; where a dress designer just had a god—awful day; and where Maeve Binchy captures the beat of every woman's heart.
It falls to the Doyles' eldest daughter, Anna, to decide how best to commemorate her parents' Silver Wedding.
No use asking her sister Helen, living in her London convent, or her brother Brendan, who has chosen another form of exile on a bleak farm in the West of Ireland. But it is unthinkable not to have a party, even though for the Doyles, family occasions are more difficult than for most. For each of them is keeping up a front, nursing a secret wound, or smarting over a hidden betrayal. But young Father Flynn is most concerned with the fate of St.
Ann's Well, which is set at the edge of the woods and slated for destruction.
People have been coming to St. Ann's for generations to share their dreams and fears and speak their prayers. Some believe it to be a place of true spiritual power, demanding protection; others think it's a mere magnet for superstitions, easily sacrificed.
Not knowing which faction to favour, Father Flynn listens to all those caught up in the conflict, and these are the voices we hear in the stories of Whitethorn Woods: men and women deciding between the traditions of the past and the promises of the future, ordinary people brought vividly to life by Binchy's generosity and empathy, and in the vivacity and surprise of her storytelling.
Feeling like foreigners in this land of sun and surf, they're still adjusting to work, school and life in a sprawling purple weatherboard when, one morning, tragedy strikes. In the devastating aftermath questions fly: What really happened? And who's to blame? Determined to protect his family, Finn finds himself under the police and media spotlight. Guilty and enraged, Bridget spends nights hunting answers in the last place imaginable. Jarrah — his innocence lost — faces a sudden and frightening adulthood where nothing is certain. Sixty Seconds is a haunting, redemptive story about forgiveness and hope.
Continuing the story she began in Flower of Scotland, Emma invites the listener back into the lives of the Drummond family, who are still dealing with the aftermath of the First World War but now must also face up to the horrors of the Second. Andrew and Rose are running the distillery and have given a job to Jack's son, Tommy. Tommy hates the work and longs to be a pilot but Jack, horribly disfigured after the first war, forbids it.
