When his longtime nemesis, the amphetamine-juiced killer known as ´´Upper´´ North, is spotted in England, Detective Chief Inspector Brock is on the trail. His manhunt centers on Silvermeadow, a huge and glittery new shopping mall on the outskirts of London, where North was seen. Lying in wait, he and Kathy Kolla take on a seemingly unrelated case as camouflage, that of a missing girl who had worked in the mall. But what to make of the rumor of other girls gone missing? Coming up against dead ends, Kathy sets off to follow some leads of her own - and finds out that going solo can be very dangerous. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Angele Masters.

10,000 people jam the corridors of America’s largest shopping mall. 9,988 of them have come to shop. The other 12 have come to kill. Stephen Hunter’s hyperdrive, eighth-gear thriller chronicles the day when the unthinkable happens: terrorists descend upon the heartland, opening fire in a Minneapolis supermall and executing innocent victims one by one. Those on the upper floors, including retired Marine sniper Ray Cruz, take cover any way they can, but within minutes the gunmen have rounded up more than a thousand hostages. As it so often does, the story comes down to one man with a gun. Except Ray doesn’t have a gun.
The Great Nebula in Orion The Great Nebula in Orion centers on the accidental reunion of two mature women who went to college together. Louise (Stephanie Gordon) is a successful New York fashion designer who lives in an apartment overlooking the Hayden Planetarium. She has run into Carrie (Tanya Berezin) in Bergdorf´s on a shopping trip from her home in Boston. Carry has married into the upper 2 percent, firmly entrenched in a life of social perquisites; but the site of the planetarium takes her back to an almost forgotten romance with a young dreamer who introduced her to the majestic mysteries of the constellations in the night sky. As these two catch up on the intervening years, secrets are revealed that shake the complacency of the present, with tumultuous passions buried in the past. Ludlow Fair In a turn of comedic mastery, Ludlow Fair treats us to the tribulations of two mismatched young women sharing an apartment. Rachel (Trish Hawkins) has turned in her recent boyfriend, Joe, for making off with her savings, and now wonders if she´s done the right thing. Her contrasting roommate is cynical Agnes (Conchata Ferrell) who reminds Rachel of thedizzying history of young men the pretty girl has run through before falling prey to a hunk who´s ripped her off. While Rachel stews over her moral dilemma, Agnes is preparing for bed, fighting off a cold, and hoping for a threadbare romantic lunch with her boss´ skinny son. All Rachel wants is to be assured things will be better tomorrow, but Agnes shoots that down: It will be exactly the same tomorrow. The bittersweet contrast between these young ladies is heartbreakingly funny.

Window shopping! Don´t you just hate the term? It is like going into a sweet shop and not being able to buy anything, or not knowing what to buy first. That is exactly my line of business, helping people make the right choice. I´m one of those fashion consultants that are so popular nowadays among the upper crust, although I started ages ago. Choosing the right clothes for the right occasion is not an easy task: the dress has to match your personality and - if it can - enhance it. This story is about how I abandoned the rat race, spending days in a legal office, and followed my dream of becoming a fashion consultant. I believe I´m something more though, I´m a retail therapist and I´m sure you are itching to know the story of how I started and how I helped my clients look fabulous! With a good deal of help from my best friend, Ritchie, among others, do I manage to achieve my goal? 1. Language: English. Narrator: R Bond.

Learn about the development of Burlesque performance with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Burlesque is a theatrical performance concerned with parody and exaggeration. But it didn’t originate in the theatre. In fact, the term ‘burlesque’ is believed to have originally come from the Spanish word for joke, which was ´´burla”. The term ´´burlesque” was used for satirical literary works from medieval times up until the eighteenth century. Such works which can be described as burlesque include Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and Miguel de Cervantes’ Exemplary Novels. But in the eighteenth century, the term ´´burlesque” began to be used to describe serious theatrical works being performed in an irreverent, comedic way. By lampooning the behavior of characters in serious, upper class entertainments, burlesque provided comedy for many in the lower classes. In England, as elsewhere in Europe, burlesque gained its popularity as a light-hearted form of theatrical entertainment.
