End in tears by Ruth Rendell( Recording )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International bestselling author Ruth Rendell delivers a first-rate new Inspector Wexford mystery--a traditional British whodunit rendered unique by Rendell's celebrated gift for characterization and social commentary. At first there was no reason to link the killings. The one, months earlier, seemed totally random: a lump of concrete, pushed off an overpass onto a passing car. By contrast, the bludgeoning death of Amber, returning home late after night-clubbing with her teenaged friends, was obviously calculated. The killer had been seen waiting for the girl in a nearby wood. But when Inspector Wexford found that Amber had been the driver right behind the crushed car--and that both were Hondas of similar vintage and color--he knew that someone had wanted the teenager dead badly enough to kill twice to get the job done. And the murders had not yet come to an end

The secret history of the world : as laid down by the secret societies by Mark Booth( Recording )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They say that history is written by the victors. But what if history--or what we have come to know as history--has all along been written by the wrong people? What if everything we've been told is only part of the story? What if it's the wrong part? In this groundbreaking new work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling intellectual tour of our world's secret histories. Starting from a dangerous premise--that everything we've been taught about our world's past is corrupted, and that the stories put forward by the various cults and mystery schools throughout history are true--Booth produces nothing short of an alternate history of the past 3,000 years. From Greek and Egyptian mythology to Jewish folklore, from Christian cults to Freemasons, from Charlemagne to Don Quixote, from George Washington to Hitler--Booth shows without a doubt that history as we know it needs a revolutionary rethink
