A sleeping life an Inspector Wexford mystery by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
17 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 340 libraries worldwide
The body found under the hedge was that of a middle-aged woman. The gray eyes were wide and staring, and in them Inspector Wexford thought he saw a sardonic gleam. But that must have been his imagination. The woman was a stranger. There was nothing to give him her address, name or occupation, let alone any clues that might lead to her killer. Her death was rather unremarkable; it was her life that was a mystery
9/11 through Saudi Eyes ( visu )
7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 297 libraries worldwide
"In this program, a broad cross-section of Saudis -- parents and neighbors of the accused hijackers, editors of Arab News and Asharq Al Awasat, political and military analysts, a psychologist, and others -- give their perceptions of events and issues involving September 11th. Interviews provide background on and insights into the lives and minds of the alleged hijackers, the recruitment practices of al Qaeda, the co-opting of jihad for militant political ends, Osama bin Laden's cult of personality, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and frustration over U.S. foreign policy. This video, the first documentary to scrutinize 9/11 from the Saudi perspective, is a powerful learning tool for students of political science, the Middle East, and Islam."--Distributor's website
Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett( file )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 243 libraries worldwide
Samuel Beckett, one of the great avant-garde Irish dramatists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century, was born on 13 April 1906. He died in 1989. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. His centenary will be celebrated throughout 2006 with performances of his major plays, but the most popular of them all will be, without doubt, the play with which he first made his name, Waiting for Godot. It opened the gates to the theatre of the absurd as four men appear on the stage, apparently with purpose but (perhaps) waiting for someone called Godot. It is stark, funny, bemusing and still deeply affecting half a century since its first production. In this new recording for Audiobook, John Tydeman, for many years head of BBC Radio Drama, takes a fresh look at one of the milestones in Western drama
Shake hands forever by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 237 libraries worldwide
Chief Inspector Wexford could discover no motive, no reason and no suspect. Probably he was reading meaning where there was none; probably Angela Hathall really had picked up a stranger, and that stranger had killed her. But why such doubt? Was Wexford becoming cynical and untrusting -- or was this one of the most ingenious crimes he had ever tackled?
The rottweiler [a novel] by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
The latest victim in a series of apparently motiveless murders is found near Inez Ferry's antique shop in Maryebone. Someone saw a shadowy figure running away, but the only other clues are that the murderer usually strangles his victim and removes something personal, like a cigarette lighter or a necklace. The activities of the sinister 'Rottweiler' will exert a profound influence on the lives of a small group of people, especially when the suspicion emerges that one of them may be a homicidal maniac
Sins of the fathers by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
It was a brutal, vicious crime--and sixteen years old. A helpless old woman battered to death with an axe. Harry Painter hung for it, and Chief Inspector Wexford is certain they executed the right man. But Reverend Archery has doubts--because his son wants to marry the murderer's beautiful, brilliant daughter. He begins unravelling the past, only to discover that murder breeds murder--and often conceals even deeper secrets
A new lease of death by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )

No man's nightingale by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
Sarah Hussain was not popular in the community of Kingsmarkham. She was born of mixed parents, a white Irishwoman and an immigrant Indian Hindu. She was also the Reverend of St Peter's church. But it came as a profound shock to everyone when she was found strangled in the vicarage. A garrulous cleaner, Maxine, also shared by the Wexfords, discovers the body. In his retirement, the former Detective Chief Inspector is devoting much time to reading, and has little patience with Maxine's prattle. But when his old friend Mike Burden asks him to assist on the case as Crime Solutions Adviser (unpaid), Wexford is obliged to pay more precise attention. Wexford retains a relish for work and a curiosity about people, which is invaluable in detective work; while Burden tends to jump to conclusions. But he is wise enough to listen to the man whose office he inherited, and whose experience makes him a formidable ally
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe( Sound Recording )
13 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 141 libraries worldwide
Robinson Crusoe, the first English novel, was an immediate success when first published in 1719, and has been an internationally popular classic ever since. The compelling tale of a man who put to sea in search of adventure and found himself shipwrecked on a desert island and alone for decades has become a resonant modern myth. Crusoe walking the limits of his small domain, a typical Englishman carrying his umbrella in the blazing tropics, is a figure familiar throughout the Western world

PLAYAWAY. A lump of concrete dropped deliberately from a small stone bridge over a quiet road kills the wrong person. The driver behind is spared. But only for a while.

Living alone with her two children, she is pregnant again. What will happen to the child? And, distinctly unimpressed with old-fashioned police methods, one particular member of the local press is gunning for the Chief Inspector

The monster in the box an Inspector Wexford novel by Ruth Rendell( Sound Recording )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
Wexford had almost made up his mind that he would never again set eyes on Eric Targo. And yet there he was, back in Kingsmarkham, still with that cocky strutting walk. Years earlier, when Wexford was a young police officer, a woman called Elsie Carroll had been found strangled in her bedroom. Although many still had their suspicions that her husband was guilty, no-one was convicted. Another woman was strangled shortly afterwards, and every instinct told Wexford that the killer was still at large. And it was Eric Targo; a psychopath who would kill again. As the Chief Inspector investigates a new case

Searching for truffles in a wood, a man and his dog unearth something less savoury, a human hand.

The only clue is a crack in one of the dead man's ribs
