Miami´s best-dressed serial killer is back and on the prowl - at least he would be if he could shake off his permanent shadow. Ever since their paths first crossed, Sergeant Doakes hasn´t let Dexter Morgan out of his sight. Dexter may well be the Miami PD´s blood-spatter analyst, but Sgt. Doakes has a pretty good idea of how Dex likes to spend his free time, and he´s determined to catch him in the act. Dex hasn´t killed in months and is getting twitchy. To throw Doakes off his scent, he´s spending more time with Rita, his girlfriend. But no matter how many cosy nights they spend in front of the TV, Doakes is still watching. Then a body turns up, horribly mutilated and barely alive. To trap the torturer, Doakes and Dexter will have to work together - if they can trust each other. It´s a devil´s pact, and one of them will have to be the bait.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Lindsay. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000809/bk_orio_000809_sample.mp3.

Love can never die. Love conquers all, so they say. But can Cupid’s arrow pierce the hearts of the living and the dead - or rather, the undead? Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie? The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria - a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune and now plans to marry her niece off for money. For Nora, no fate could be more horrible -until she’s nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses. But fate is just getting started with Nora. Catapulted from her world of drawing-room civility, she’s suddenly gunning down ravenous zombies alongside mysterious black-clad commandos and confronting ´´The Laz,” a fatal virus that raises the dead - and hell along with them. Hardly ideal circumstances. Then Nora meets Bram Griswold, a young soldier who is brave, handsome, noble... and dead. But as is the case with the rest of his special undead unit, luck and modern science have enabled Bram to hold on to his mind, his manners, and his body parts. And when his bond of trust with Nora turns to tenderness, there’s no turning back. Eventually, they know, the disease will win, separating the star-crossed lovers forever. But until then, beating or not, their hearts will have what they desire. In Dearly, Departed, romance meets walking-dead thriller, spawning a madly imaginative novel of rip-roaring adventure, spine-tingling suspense, and macabre comedy that forever redefines the concept of undying love. 1.

St. Paul private eye Holland Taylor is back in Edgar Award-winning author David Housewright´s third lively tale. Private investigator Holland Taylor has a low opinion of sleazy lawyer Hunter Truman and listens reluctantly to Truman´s plea to help him find the missing Alison Emerton, whom the police suspect has been murdered. But when Truman plays the tape Alison left and shows Taylor her photograph, the elusive woman captures his curiosity. Could it be that Alison is not dead but has disappeared to start life under a new identity? If so, why? As Taylor investigates, he meets people who loved her, or hated her - sometimes both. They include her secretive parents; her handsome, angry ex-husband; a wary former lover; her very loyal women friends; and the man the police had once held as the chief suspect. Taylor´s investigation leads him to a rural Wisconsin town, where he meets two men very much involved in Alison´s life and uncovers big-money plans involving a resort and proposed gambling casino: schemes with stakes high enough that they will cost not only fortunes but lives. As Taylor exposes the motives of the players and untangles Alison´s strange story, events come together in an explosive finale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Kramer.
