The client was young, blonde, and beautiful, and she wanted to disappear. The trouble was she wouldn´t say why, and she wouldn´t give her name. So Perry Mason agreed to a code of identification based on her measurements: 36-24-36. But according to Della Street, the figures were padded, and as it turned out, so was everything the client said. Certainly the bag full of cash she carries isn´t shopping money. All the mystery-woman asks is that Perry Mason make himself available for a few days in case she needs him - for what purpose, she remains silent as a grave. In fact, his headstrong client is headed for disaster - not only into a blackmailer´s clutches but into a lethal trap from which not even Perry Mason´s brilliant courtroom sorcery may be able to extricate her. Alive, anyway... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alexander Cendese. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/008991/bk_brll_008991_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

An unprecedented look at the life of Rose Kennedy reveals the private woman who became a political legend. In her compelling and intimate portrait, presidential historian Barbara A. Perry captures Rose Kennedy’s essential contributions to the incomparable Kennedy dynasty. This biography - the first to draw on an invaluable cache of Rose’s newly released diaries and letters - unearths the complexities behind the impeccable persona she showed the world. The woman who emerges in these pages is a fascinating character: savvy about her family’s reputation and resilient enough to persevere through the unfathomable tragedies that befell her. As a young woman, she defied her father, Boston mayor John Fitzgerald, by marrying ambitious businessman Joseph Kennedy. During Joe’s diplomatic career, she began carefully calibrating her family’s image, stage-managing photo shoots and interviews of her nine children and herself. After husband Joe’s isolationist views on the eve of World War II made him a political liability, Rose took to the campaign trail for son Jack. Her perfectionism, initially a response to the strictures imposed upon Catholic women, ultimately created a family portrait that resonated in modern politics and media. Perry’s account looks past the fanfare, poignantly revealing the matriarch’s vulnerability. Rose sought solace from crushing personal tragedies and a philandering husband in prayer, habitual shopping, travel, and medication. Initially ashamed and afraid of daughter Rosemary’s mental disability, Rose ultimately shined a light on the affliction, raising millions of dollars for disabled children. An indefatigable campaigner for Jack, Bobby, and Teddy, she had an unshakable Catholic faith that informed their compassionate social policies and her daughters’ philanthropies. This definitive biography, Rose Kennedy provides unequaled access to the life of a remarkable woman who witnessed a century of histor... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gayle Hendrix.

The wickedly funny impressions show arrived on television in 2002, having made waves and become an incredible success as a BBC Radio 4 series. BBC Radio Collection´s volumes of episodes from the radio series have been incredibly successful, and now this volume collects the best moments from the first BBC1 TV series. Enter a surreal universe where David Dickinson goes looking for weapons of mass destruction in ´´Weapons Hunt´´, the Queen sells off the royal jewels on the QVC shopping channel, and Delia Smith turns homicidal and starts cooking up the competition. Elsewhere, Anne Robinson votes off The Weakest Disciple and Professor Sam Ryan from Silent Witness joins Rolf on Animal Hospital. Also in the mix are an oddly threatening Michael Buerk, Saddam Hussein advertising Werther´s Originals, and familiar favourites Tony Blair, Greg Dyke, and Kristy Wark. Obi-Wan Kenobi visits a second-hand car salesman, Ozzy Osborne takes over the role of Dumbledore in the new Harry Potter movie, and Doctor Who spends a weekend with the Cybermen family in Living with the Enemy. Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens, Kevin Connelly, Phil Cornwell, and Mark Perry prove that the ersatz can be even better than the real thing in these six sensational episodes. 1. Language: English.
