Ein warmherziger Roman über die rare Fähigkeit zum Glück Rebecca Winter steht an einem Wendepunkt: Von ihrem Mann ist sie geschieden, für ihren erwachsenen Sohn nicht mehr unentbehrlich und als Künstlerin hat sie längst ihren Zenit überschritten. Jahrelang lebte die berühmte Fotografin sorglos von den üppigen Einkünften eines Schnappschusses. Aber nun ist der Geldstrom versiegt. Notgedrungen beschließt sie, ihr New Yorker Apartment zu vermieten und für ein Jahr in ein kleines Haus fernab der Stadt zu ziehen. Der unfreiwillige Landaufenthalt ist kein Spaziergang im Central Park - und doch beschert er Rebecca eine unverhoffte Liebe, neue Inspiration und den Mut, unbekannte Wege zu beschreiten... 1.

During a blackout on the streets of London in late 1944, a young Polish land girl, Rosa Nowak, is suddenly and brutally killed. But the police, their resources already stretched by war regulations and the thriving black market, cannot find any reason why someone would want to murder an innocent refugee. For the former police inspector John Madden, the crime hits close to home. Rosa was working on his farm, and he feels personally responsible for not protecting her. His old Scotland Yard colleagues, Angus Sinclair and Billy Styles, struggle to make sense of their few clues.

Desperately, Kerrick launches an arduous quest to rally a final defense for humankind.

Five days ago, the blowing up of the express office safe in Burnt Timbers, Montana, had gone off without a hitch for the four members of the Buck Streeter gang, netting them $28,000. Since then they have taken refuge in an abandoned shack on a plateau above the town of Brigham in northern Wyoming. With its bank and express office across the street from each other and lacking any telegraph for communication, Brigham seems like the perfect place to stage their next robbery before laying low for a while. Streeter is worried about their newest but oldest gang member, Frank Reno, who suffers from consumption and whose coughing throughout the night makes sleep difficult for them all; they need their rest in this tough, cold high country. Still, the gang is confident, and they take their time visiting and studying the lay of the land in Brigham. What they haven´t taken into consideration is the snowstorm heading into northern Wyoming and, even more significantly, the determination of US Marshal John Galloway. Although 18 years as a lawman has worn down the aging Galloway, he has no fear of death, and he is committed to stopping the gang´s spree of robbing and terrorizing small towns across the West, which has taken him from Texas to the Pacific Northwest to Montana. With orders coming from the Denver office, Galloway, who has learned everything he can about the four, has followed his instincts from Burnt Timbers to northern Wyoming. Galloway is convinced that Brigham will be the gang´s next target, but as the icy storm sets in, the question becomes when will they strike? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grover Gardner.

In an adventure of a lifetime, Alexander Armstrong heads north into an ever more hostile Arctic winter to explore the farthest reaches of the globe. In an epic journey, he navigates some of the Earth´s toughest terrain, first travelling through the glittering landscape of Scandinavia then on to the isolated islands of Iceland and Greenland, as far as the infamously treacherous Northwest Passage. His final frontier is Canada and Alaska, where his journey ends on the international dateline between the USA and Russia. His travels will form a major three-part series for ITV in autumn 2015. It´s a voyage that takes Alexander halfway around the planet, experiencing many of its natural wonders and living alongside some of its more extraordinary people. Getting stuck in wherever he goes, he learns from the marines how to survive wildly unpredictable weather and temperatures as low as minus 40°C, drives along a hair-raising 800-mile road that´s a river in summer and takes a plunge in freezing Arctic waters. And that´s all before wrestling Viking style with a sporting legend called Eva as part of a traditional Icelandic winter festival. Combining adventure and humour, Land of the Midnight Sun is an entertaining travelogue that takes readers on an exhilarating journey to this rarely seen corner of the world. It is an exploration of man´s relationship with the harshest climates, set against the stunning backdrop of the Arctic landscape. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alexander Armstrong.
