You have 87 seconds to save yourself from drowning. Can you?
A young woman in a strapless blue summer dress lies on the cobblestones next to the canal. With her eyes half open, it looks like she’s had one too many Bacardi Breezers and is going to wake up with a killer hangover. Except she won’t wake up ever again… and her lifeless body has been pulled from Christianshavn canal, right in the centre of Copenhagen.
Investigator Georg Guldmann watches with dismay as the zip of the bodybag is pulled close. As the last teeth of the zip catch, he realises something that feels out of place – a fiery red burn mark spreading across the victim’s right underarm. It doesn’t take long for this observation to reveal two things: one, this isn’t a drunken mistake, this is a murder case and two, this woman is most likely not the only victim.
The hunt for the truth leads Guldmann across Copenhagen; from the city’s restaurant community, through the Danish Parliament and even to the magnificent Opera House.
House of Marvelous Books by Fiona Vigo Marshall
Narrated by Matt Addis
With assistant Ursula asleep at her desk, head publisher Gerard going health and safety mad, and chief editor Drusilla focused on finding a supposedly priceless but famously missing manuscript, there is hardly anyone left to steer the ship. Young Mortimer Blackley, assistant editor, charts the descent of the House in his logbook as it lurches from one failure to the next.
Will mysterious Russian buyers, lurking in the wings, stop the ship from sinking at great cost to all? Or will Drusilla find the legendary Daybreak Manuscript and save the day?
The four Sutherland sisters have all had very different paths in life, but one secret and a slighty tense production of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ are about to bring them all back together again…
When the news that pop-superstar Lexia Sutherland is returning to Westenbury, not everyone is thrilled by the news – including Lexia. There are too many memories she doesn’t need to face – or need re-surfacing.
Meanwhile, Juno Sutherland just wants a little peace and quiet. As the local village doctor, she’s got her priorities in order; kids, job, husband, tenacious pony, a role in the village musical… So when the sexy new locum turns up – and steals her office – the last thing she needed was to be hit with rising temperatures and an over-active imagination.
Will these sisters be able to uncover the past, deal with the future and put on the performance of a lifetime?
Following the momentous life of Jaya Devani, an Indian woman harbouring a secret that propels her to find her own agency against a backdrop of sex, class, and race discrimination.

Arriving on British shores as the suffragette movement is growing, Jaya grapples with a choice: can she really find freedom in the arms of William, or will she have to seek out her own way to be truly free?
A story of the tenacity of the human spirit, friendship, and blazing your own path.
