Graviton Cemetery: the biggest, oldest, most haunted graveyard in the world. And the Requiem 4 unit is here to clean things up. In a dystopian, war-torn future where a godless global network reprograms the masses for compliance, the Requiem units are a dying breed. Manned by sciocists - scientific exorcists - and armed with state-of-the-art technology, the units sweep cemeteries of ´´latent soul energy´´. However, there´s a lot more than just ghosts in Graviton. Father Aguste Lax, military chaplain to Requiem 4, has his own doubts. The cross around his neck is a feeble reminder of his waning faith. Yet when they encounter a Type Six entity, no amount of quantum firepower can save them. Lax becomes their only hope for escaping Graviton alive. But can his faith prevail against an evil this ancient? Or will Graviton Cemetery become the final resting place for Requiem 4? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Kassis.

Glen Ishard: the idyllic Scottish home of ex-rock star Nick Mackenzie and his exotic wife, Alusha. It is a haven of peace and security after all the years on the road, until the day a small plane with a deadly chemical cargo flies off course. In the tragic aftermath, Daisy Field, environmental campaigner, picks up the trail. Abrasive and idealistic, she´s determined to fight the ´´profits before safety´´ attitude of the agrochemical industry. But to win she needs Nick´s millions, and Nick is facing difficulties of his own. From the wilds of Scotland to the corridors of power in London and Chicago, from Madison Square Garden to a seedy security firm in south London, Requiem pulls Daisy into a struggle against apathy, sabotage, and dirty tricks. 1.

Andy Broussard, the plump and proud New Orleans medical examiner, obviously loves food. Less apparent to the casual observer is his hatred of murderers. Together with his gorgeous sidekick, psychologist Kit Franklyn, the two make a powerful, although improbable, mystery solving duo. It´s a bizarre case for Andy and Kit. A man is found in Jackson Square, stabbed, one eyelid removed and four Scrabble tiles with the letters KOJE on his chest. Soon, there’s a second victim, also stabbed and missing one eyelid, but this time with only three letters on his chest, KOJ. The pattern is unmistakable, but does it mean there will be two more victims and then the killer will go away, or is he leading up to something bigger and deadlier? Broussard and Kit use their disciplines to profile the killer, but it soon becomes clear that the clues and objects they’ve found are part of a sick game that the killer is playing with Broussard; a game most likely engineered by one of the hundreds of attendees at the annual forensics meeting being held in New Orleans. Has Broussard finally met his match? New Orleans Requiem is written in Donaldson´s unique style: A hard-hitting, punchy, action-packed prose that’s dripping with a folksy, decidedly southern, sense of irony. Add in Donaldson´s brilliant first-hand knowledge of forensics and the sultry flavor of New Orleans, and the result is first class forensic procedural within an irresistibly delectable mystery. 1.

The death of Paco ´´Packy´´ Johnson shouldn´t have surprised anyone. Paco Johnson spent a lifetime in the system - starting in juvie at age 10, then prison for most of his adult life. But he managed to make some real friends in prison, friends who helped him get parole, a place to stay, and plans to help him adjust to a life outside prison after 17 years behind bars. But only 17 hours after he was released, he was found dead - murdered - in the streets of the Bronx. James Beck can´t save Packy any longer - but he can try to find out what happened to Packy and why and exact a measure of justice. Beck, ringleader of a tight clique of ex-cons based in Brooklyn´s Red Hook section, is determined to accord Packy at least some dignity and a measure of justice. But what drove Packy out onto the streets of the Bronx his first night back? Who did he run into who hated him enough to viciously beat him before executing him and yet left behind his wallet full of cash? But what at first appears to be a simple, if tragic, street killing quickly becomes something much more difficult and complex. And it will take all the skills, connections, and cunning of Beck and his team not only to learn the truth but to survive the forces they´ve unwittingly unleashed. 1. Language: English.
