Anne and the Idle Chatter: Kevin Sullivan
The Urban Pirate Reader and Idle Chatter: Stitch Frizbin
We rely on automation. Our cars parallel park themselves. The military uses unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance. We can´t go anywhere without our phones. Our lives are ripe for hacking. Not that anyone would. When a group of high school friends meet at their 45th reunion, they discuss the hypothetical. With all these wireless networks, could someone hack a military drone? Unknown to them, a Russian spy gets wind of their idle chatter and plans to put their idea to the test. Vasili Grigoriy Konstantinov commandeers a drone flying over Washington DC and terrorizes the National Mall with a low flyby. Then, things escalate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samuel E. Hoke.

The New York Times best-selling author of Dead with the Wind and Bless Her Dead Little Heart is back with more of those sleuthing Southern belles, the Ducote sisters. An´gel and Dickce Ducote, busy with plans for the Athena Garden Club´s spring tour of grand old homes, are having trouble getting the other club members to help. The rest of the group is all aflutter now that dashing and still-eligible Hadley Partridge is back to restore his family mansion. But the idle chatter soon turns deadly serious when a body turns up on the Partridge estate after a storm. The remains might belong to Hadley´s long-lost sister-in-law, Callie, whom everyone thought ran off with Hadley years ago. And if it´s not Callie, who could it be? As the Ducotes begin uncovering secrets, they discover that more than one person in Athena would kill to be Mrs. Partridge. Now An´gel and Dickce will need to get their hands dirty if they hope to reveal a killer´s deep-buried motives before someone else´s name is mud. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jorjeana Marie.

New York Times best-selling author Meagan Spooner spins a thoroughly thrilling Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that listeners won´t soon be able to forget. Beauty knows the Beast´s forest in her bones - and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who´s ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there´s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva´s father´s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he´d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast. Deaf to her sisters´ protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory - a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva´s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin - or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty or the Beast? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saskia Maarleveld, Will Damron.
