The life and works of W.B. Yeats by W. B Yeats( Sound Recording )

William Butler Yeats remains one of the most popular poets of the 20th century. The Lake Isle of Inisfree, He wishes for the cloths of heaven, Down by the Salley Gardens, The secret rose - these are just a few of the poems that made William Butler Yeats an international figure. Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions. His poetic urgency was fueled by an active and varied life, as he gained his inspiration from the men and women he knew, classical sources and contemporary politics

Murder in thrall by Anne Cleeland( Sound Recording )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
First-year detective Kathleen Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead of humble origins and modest means. Chief Inspector Michael Acton is her antithesis: a British lord turned cop. He's tall, handsome, and enigmatic--to a fault. He also has a knack for solving London's most high-profile crimes. Acton selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to partner with him on a series of investigations because she always knows when someone is lying--a trait that comes in handy when interviewing suspects and witnesses. Acton and Doyle are sent to investigate the murder of a trainer at a racetrack, and soon new killings related to the first start unfolding, dragging the two investigators into ever more perilous situations. But the real danger is the unlikely attachment that develops between the ultrareserved, aristocratic chief inspector and his spirited, working-class sidekick...a relationship that will raise plenty of eyebrows--and hackles--among their colleagues at the Yard

She has recently been paired with the newly promoted Detective Sergeant Williams to investigate a turf war--a series of retribution murders between the Russians and the Irish, both of whom are trying to control a lucrative underworld business. Kathleen also just learned that she's pregnant and must now deal with the repercussions of her hasty marriage in the form of Chief Inspector Acton's mother, the displeased dowager, who makes an unannounced visit. Still worse, Kathleen senses that Acton is carrying out a "scorched earth" retribution of his own and that he instigated the turf war to rid London of its villains. She worries that he is meting out his own form of justice--and who knows what will happen if it's exposed?
