The portable doorl by Tom Holt( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 48 libraries worldwide
Starting a new job is always traumatic: meeting your colleagues, forgetting their names, your boss's name and, for an encore, your own name. This is then traditionally followed - round about lunchtime - by breaking the photocopier and hiding in the toilet whilst weeping hysterically. But what if your new employer was not the simpler humdrum paper-shuffling outfit you supposed it to be? What if it was an elaborate front for the Dark Forces of Oddness? A place in which the photocopier fought back and the staplers were possessed by vengeful spirits? For Paul Carpenter - new employee of J.W. Wells & Co - it is fast becoming clear that his new company is hiding a vast and quite possibly sinister conspiracy. Not that Paul cares much - he's become obsessed with wooing the enigmatic Sophie, a bizarre agular woman with all the sexual appeal of a hole-punch

Witness before the fact by Elizabeth Ferrars( Sound Recording )

"You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. It was the fact that Alec Methven had apparently done so that first makes the police suspicious on the island of Madeira. Despite all indications to the contrary, he had not eaten his last meal in solitude, and someone is desperate to conceal that fact"--Container
Don't monkey with murder by Elizabeth Ferrars( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
My Irma has been kidnapped away and I am been in anxiety of her life. So reads the ungrammatical and cryptic message which brings Toby Dyke and his friend George to East Leat, a lovely village lost in the Downs. Psychobiologist Dr Paul Virag has been dragged from his experimental station in Tobago at the whim of an heiress who requested that he chaperone her two prize monkeys across the Atlantic. But what has been an inconvenience to his calm life takes an unexpected turn into a sinister mystery
In your dreams by Tom Holt( Sound Recording )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Ever been offered a promotion that seems too good to be true? You know - the sort they'd be insane to be offering to someone like you. The kind where you snap their arm off to accept, then wonder why all your long-serving colleagues look secretly relieved, as if they've been let off some strange and unpleasant hook. It's the kind of trick that deeply sinister companies like H.W. Wells & Co pull all the time. Especially with employees who are too busy mooning over the office intern to think about what they're getting into. And that's why, right about now, Paul Carpenter is wishing he'd paid much less attention to the gorgeous Melze, and rather more to a little bit of job description small-print referring to "pest" control
