Robert Barnard - A Cry from the Dark



MP3 | 106 MB | 32 kbps
Bettina Whitelaw is a grand dame of the English literary scene. Approaching eighty, with a beautiful flat in Holland Park and a comfortable income, her life is not dissimilar to that of her wealthy, elegant neighbours. But her background most certainly is. Brought up in Bundaroo, a small town in the Australian outback, Bettina's childhood was dominated by the relentlessly blazing sun, by the long daily walk to school, and by the simmering animosities of smalltown life. The family house was a simple shack and her parents constantly struggled to make ends meet.

Robert Barnard - A Fall from Grace



MP3 | 210 MB | 64 kbps
Detective Inspector Charlie Peace and his wife, Felicity, are shocked when Felicity's difficult dad, Rupert Coggenhoe, suddenly announces that he's moving north to their Yorkshire village. Felicity has never much liked her father, and to have him as a near-neighbor fills her with foreboding. The boorish old man has always loved to impress the ladies, young and old, by exaggerating his modest success as a novelist. True to form, soon after his move to Slepton Edge he surrounds himself with adoring females, including a precocious, theatrical teenager named Anne Michaels. Rupert and Anne could make a lethal combination.
Rumors fly, but Felicity convinces herself that Rupert would do nothing seriously wrong. He can be annoying and outrageous but he's not a criminal. She relies on a friend, a doctor who seems to be strangely aware of everything that's happening in the community, to warn her if he hears of anything really troubling. She doesn't have long to wait, but the news is not what she expects. It's worse. A body has been found and it looks like murder. Stunned by a difficult reality, Felicity is even more shocked to discover that she, herself, may be a suspect.

Robert Barnard - A Hovering of Vultures



MP3 | 103 MB | 32 kbps
Scotland Yard is keeping tabs on suave, wily antique-book dealer Gerald Suzman, involved in several lucrative literary seams over the years and now the creator of the Sneddon Fellowship, celebrating the novels of Susannah Sneddon. The Fellowship's center is the bleak farmhouse in West Yorkshire where, 50 years ago, Susannah and her brother, Joshua, who also wrote - unsuccessfully - perished by murder and suicide. Now Suzman, capitalizing on and feeding the renewed interest in Sneddon's work, has invited fans to a weekend in the village of Micklewike, where some locals still remember the reclusive pair. The Yard sends low-key detective Charlie Peace (Fatal Attachment, etc.) as an undercover observer, and he meets some odd and interesting guests - crisply likable 70-ish Lettie Farraday, whose still living mother cleaned house for the slovenly Susannah; very distant relative Randolph Sneddon - who knows nothing but valiantly fields questions; the unattractive Potter-Hodges, who owns a collection of Susannah's letters to an old friend; beautiful blond Gillian Parkin, who's writing a thesis on Susannah; and a host of others. All goes swimmingly - with much talk of new editions and rehashing of old gossip - until Suzman is found bludgeoned to death in his nearby cottage....

Robert Barnard - A Scandal in Belgravia



MP3 | 94 MB | 32 kbps
Peter Proctor is a retired British MP attempting to write his memoirs to stave off boredom. Unfortunately they seem to be creating more problems than he anticipated, and not just of the writers-block variety. Peter keeps getting sidetracked by the death of his friend Timothy Wycliffe, which occurred thirty-odd years before. Tim was allegedly beaten to death by his boyfriend in the posh neighborhood of Belgravia, but the case was never solved. A fascinating look at British society during the 1950's and it's evolution to current times. It's not only brilliantly written, but fast-paced and intriguing as well. A must read for anyone who enjoys a good mystery!

Robert Barnard - At Death's Door



MP3 | 114 MB | 48 kbps
No one loved the murdered Dame Myra Mason, long-ago plaything of now senile Benedict Cotterel. Myra's estranged, illegitimate daughter plans a scathing biography; Benedict's dangerously stupid legitimate daughter blames the woman for stealing her father; and Myra's new husband admits to marrying for career advancement. Tucked away upstairs in the Old Rectory, Maudsley, Benedict himself supposedly knows nothing. Barnard shows rare form as usual, investing his English village world with memorable class types, sly quirks, and supporting characters, all limned in masterfully efficient prose.

Robert Barnard - Corpse in a Gilded Cage



MP3 | 109 MB | 32 kbps
Perce Spender, a working-class Londoner, is unexpectedly transformed into the twelfth Earl of Ellesmere when a distant relative dies. But he would rather be warming a bar stool in his local pub, and he's taken up residence at Chetton Hall only until arrangements can be made to sell it. Getting rid of the family estate displeases at least one of Perce's greedy offspring, however, and on the morning after a family party the new Earl is found dead. The Chief Constable's plethora of suspects is not the social-register list he was anticipating--one of Perce's sons is now in jail, one ought to be, one daughter is a bit too curious about the will, and daughter-in-law Dixie, now the new Countess of Ellesmere, has been keeping company with a small-time crook.

Robert Barnard - Death on the High C's



MP3 | 99 MB | 32 kbps
Opera singers are often described as being larger than life, and certainly this is true of Gaylene Ffrench. Her appetites - for men, for booze, for attention - are gargantuan, and her ability to irritate is similarly outsized. So when someone electrocutes the bombastic Australian contralto, few tears are shed at the Northern Opera Company (though it's a pity her understudy's so lousy).
In fact, most of the company members are dancing a jig, and it falls on Superintendent Nichols to determine which of them might have helped Gaylene along to her just reward. The black tenor tired of being the butt of Gaylene's bigotry? The soprano weary of jealous whispers in her ears? Gaylene's many bedroom conquests, all anxious to avoid a repeat performance? With so many potential suspects, Nichols has his hands full, but Barnard and his readers have a deliciously malicious good time.

Could her father be alive and well? The letter writer may have some answers, but how can Eve find him or her?

MP3 | 142 MB | 48 kbps
Robert Barnard returns to contemporary Leeds for the memorably downscale story of The Centre, a temporary hostel for homeless young people. Ben Marchant, who opened The Centre after winning the lottery, allows his charges to remain only a fortnight, all except for Alan Coughlan and Katy Bourne, two fellow-students who'd barely heard of each other till they ran away together, and who are now ensconced in The Centre indefinitely. But Alan and Katy's unusual status doesn't bother black copper Charlie Peace as much as the possibility that The Centre may be no refuge from the indolence of the streets.

Robert Barnard - Out of the Blackout



MP3 | 90 MB | 32 kbps
It is 1941. The horror and chaos of the London bombings are at a peak. Children are being evacuated in droves to the relative security of the English countryside.
One day an unlisted little boy is left on a train platform in Gloucestershire. He says his name is Simon Thorn, but he bears no ID and the few fragments he can provide of his past lead nowhere. But a childless couple is overjoyed to take him in, and he begins a happy new life as Simon Cutheridge. Only now and then he whimpers in his sleep and cries out, “Please stop it. Don’t hit her! Don’t kill her!”
Fifteen quiet years pass, and Simon is in London on holiday from Oxford. Wandering among the grimy, early nineteenth-century houses in Paddington, he spies an old door with a low-set knocker he dimly recognizes. The way to re-discovery suddenly opens.

Robert Barnard - Political Suicide



MP3 | 74 MB | 32 kbps
When the MP for Bootham East was fished out of the Thames, it looked like a clear case of suicide. But as the by-election for his successor got under way, some very murky political waters were stirred up. The local Labour party had been hijacked by the Looney Left, the Tory Party had a most unpleasant young candidate (with dubious City connections) foisted upon it, and the Alliance candidate had something nasty in his past he was trying to conceal. By polling day it was very obvious that the political suicide was no suicide - but murder.

MP3 | 126 MB | 32 kbps
Those two days in May seem to be a highpoint in Colin Pinnock's life: a stunning election victory, a new govenment, and junior office for himself. But among the many congratulations he receives is one hostile message, a grubby card asking: 'Who do you think you are?' Is this merely someone putting him back in his place, or do the words have a more profound meaning? Who, indeed, is he? And who were his real parents? As Colin investigates these questions he is led back in time to an old political scandal: a murder case which led to a politician's downfall and disappearance. Events in the present, however, start tangling with those of the past, and he finds himself the object of a series of incidents that at first seem designed to bring down his career with ridicule, but later actually threaten his life.

Cosmo Horrocks was over the moon. This was the juiciest story he'd had in years. In his job as an investigative journalist he spent his working days grubbing through the garbage bins of other people's lives (undeterred by the fact that his own wouldn't bear too much investigation), but this one seemed to have everything: religion - the man was a Catholic priest; sex - he was accused of impropriety with a teenage unmarried mother; money - he was thought to have channelled parish funds in her direction.

Robert Barnard - Unruly Son aka Death of a Mystery Writer



MP3 | 101 MB | 32 kbps
Sir Oliver Fairleigh-Stubbs, overweight and overbearing, collapses and dies at his birthday party while indulging his taste for rare liquors. He had promised his daughter he would be polite and charitable for the entire day, but the strain of such exemplary behavior was obviously too great. He leaves a family relieved to be rid of him, and he also leaves a fortune, earned as a bestselling mystery author.
To everyone's surprise, Sir Oliver's elder son, who openly hated his father, inherits most of the estate. His wife, his daughter, and his younger son are each to receive the royalties from one carefully chosen book. But the manuscript of the unpublished volume left to Sir Oliver's wife -- a posthumous "last case" that might be worth millions -- has disappeared. And Sir Oliver's death is beginning to look less than natural.

Moving into an upmarket new home in Leeds, rising radio star Matt Harper is shocked to find the skeleton of a small child in the attic. His grisly discovery takes him back to the summer of 1969, when he lived with his aunt only a few streets away, reawakening dim, vaguely disturbing memories from his childhood. While Detective Charlie Peace heads up the nominal police investigation into the bones, Matt's unease leads him to revisit the past in an attempt to solve the mystery himself. Tracking down the other members of a gang of local children he'd briefly belonged to, he gradually unearths a shared secret that has laid buried ever since.
