Skála CD


Audioverze první části celosvětově proslulé Trilogie z ostrova Lewis (Skála, Muž z ostrova Lewis a Šachové figurky). Skotský ostrov Lewis je krásné, ale drsné odlehlé místo bez stromů, bičované větry a pokryté vřesovišti. Topí se tam rašelinou a mluví gaelsky. A snad jen strach lidí z Boha je tam silnější než starost o živobytí. Pod zástěrkou víry však přežívají staré pohanské hodnoty a prapůvodní touha po krvi a pomstě. Na ostrov přijíždí nedávnou ztrátou syna poznamenaný policejní detektiv Fin Macleod, jenž se má podílet na vyšetřování brutální vraždy, spáchané podle stejného scénáře jako vražda, jíž se zabývá v Edinburghu. Fin prožil na ostrově Lewis dětství, takže vyšetřování je pro něho zároveň cestou domů a do minulosti.

Výjimeční lidé - audiokniha CDmp3


Mají snad výjimeční lidé právo páchat zločiny, protože jsou výjimeční? Enzo Macleod, učitel biologie ve francouzském Toulouse, přijíždí do Paříže, aby se tu setkal s novinářem Rogerem Raffinem, autorem knihy o slavných nevyřešených vraždách. Coby bývalý skotský forenzní specialista se totiž Macleod vsadil, že díky současným vědeckým metodám by bylo možné rozlousknout i dosud nevyjasněné případy — jako deset let staré zmizení geniálního profesora Jacquese Gaillarda. Neidentifikovaná lebka nalezená v pařížských katakombách Enza záhy přivede na stopu rafinovaně ukrytých Gaillardových ostatků. délka nahrávky: 11 hodin 33 minut

Ostrov Entry - 2 CDmp3 (Čte Jiří Dvořák)


Autor se vrací k atmosféře trilogie Lewis v příběhu o vraždě ve skotské komunitě na kanadském ostrově, jehož minulost souvisí s ostudnou kapitolou britské historie zvanou Vyklízení Vysočiny. Když detektiv Sime Mackenzie nastupuje na palubu letadla, ani se neohlédne. Cesta na ostrov Entry pro něj představuje šanci utéct hořké směsi osamělosti a lítosti nad svým dosavadním životem ve městě. Z montrealského letiště odjíždí jako součást osmičlenného vyšetřovacího týmu, směřujícího do zálivu Svatého Vavřince. Pouhé dva kilometry široký a tři kilometry dlouhý ostrov Entry je domovem asi sta obyvatel — a ten nejbohatší z nich byl právě nalezen zavražděný ve svém domě. Vyšetřování se zdá být pouhou formalitou. Důkazy nasvědčují vraždě ze žárlivosti, kterou má mít na svědomí pomstychtivá manželka. Ale vyšetřování Simovi zamotá hlavu poté, co se s hlavní podezřelou střetne tváří v tvář. Je si jistý, že ji zná — a to i přesto, že se nikdy nepotkali. Pronásledován tímto pocitem se potácí mezi nespavostí a podivnými sny o dávné minulosti na skotském ostrově vzdáleném tři tisíce mil. Sny, v nichž vdova hraje hlavní roli. Navzdory důkazům o její vině je přesvědčen, že vraždu nespáchala. Jeho posedlost ho dovede před rozhodnutí — zvítězí profesní povinnost, nebo vlastní svědomí?
