The trichinosis worm is one of nature´s most revolting parasites. Certain types of this tiny worm alter a host´s DNA by injecting a virus which mutates the reproductive system. This forces the host to bear the worm´s young. Typically these worms are never longer than a few millimeters. But guess what? Now there’s a subspecies that´s 30 feet long.When Nora and her team arrive at the island, she expects a routine zoological excursion...but it doesn´t take her long to realize they´re not alone. Are her lurid sexual dreams making her paranoid...or is she being watched? The dead bodies they find are bad enough, but then her own team members begin to disappear, and when they return, they´ve...changed. Indeed, there are other people on the island...along with something else far worse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andy Mack.

From award-winning crime writer R. Barri Flowers and best-selling author of the Murder in Hawaii Mysteries comes a gripping Maui mystery suspense novelette, Killer Connection. Honolulu fashion designer Kiyoshi Yoshida had just gone through the worst year of her life after losing her twin brother and husband, costing Kiyoshi nearly everything she held most dear. In what still gave Kiyoshi chills in disbelief, her brother Sergio Matsuko, one time dedicated and decorated homicide detective for the Honolulu Police Department, had stunned nearly everyone who knew him by being identified as the Aloha Black Scarf Killer, a serial killer who had raped and murdered seven women, before committing suicide in a house fire. Seeking to escape the notoriety, Kiyoshi relocated to Maui, hoping to somehow reclaim her life while working as a saleswoman in an upscale clothing store. Connor Jansen, a best-selling true crime writer, tracked down Kiyoshi, hoping to get information on Matsuko for his latest book on the notorious island serial killer. Using a pseudonym, Connor worms his way into Kiyoshi´s life, only to have second thoughts about his deception. In the meantime, a killer has been watching Kiyoshi, waiting for the right time to add here to her list of victims. Bonus material includes excerpts from R. Barri Flowers´ best-selling Hawaii mystery novels, Murder in Maui, Murder in Honolulu, and Seduced to Kill in Kauai; as well as a glitzy contemporary suspense novelette, Kaanapali Beach Paradise. 1.

Look! The weather has come from Scotland to welcome you to Mallorca,´´ beamed Senor Ferrer. To our new neighbour´s delight and my dismay, a cold mantle of white was rapidly transforming our newly acquired paradise in the sun into a bizarre winterscape of citrus Christmas trees, cotton wool palms and snowball oranges. It´s the stuff of dreams. A Scottish family giving up relative sanity and security to go and grow oranges for a living in a secluded valley in the mountains of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca. But dreams, as everyone knows, have a nasty habit of not turning out quite as intended. Being greeted by a freak snowstorm is only the first of many surprises and experiences, and it isn´t long before they realise that they have been sold a bit of a lemon of an orange farm by the wily previous owners. However, laughter is the best medicine when confronted with consuming a local dish of rats, the live-chicken-down-a-chimney technique of household maintenance, and attending a shotgun wedding. The colourful set of Mallorcan neighbours (including an eccentric old goatherd who eats worm-ridden oranges to improve his sex life) restores the family´s faith in human nature and helps them adapt to a new and unexpectedly testing life in this deceptively simple idyll of rural Spain. 1.

Crystal Rain is the much-anticipated debut novel by Tobias S. Buckell, one of science fiction’s newest and most promising talents. Long ago, so the stories say, the old-fathers came to Nanagada through a worm´s hole in the sky. Looking for a new world to call their own, they brought with them a rich mélange of cultures, religions, and dialects from a far-off planet called Earth. Mighty were the old-fathers, with the power to shape the world to their liking - but that was many generations ago, and what was once known has long been lost. Steamboats and gas-filled blimps now traverse the planet, where people once looked up to see great silver cities in the sky. Like his world, John deBrun has forgotten more than he remembers. Twenty-seven years ago, he washed up onto the shore of Nanagada with no memory of his past. Although he has made a new life for himself among the peaceful islanders, his soul remains haunted by unanswered questions about his own identity. These mysteries take on new urgency when the fearsome Azteca storm over the Wicked High Mountains in search of fresh blood and hearts to feed their cruel, inhuman gods. Nanagada´s only hope lies in a mythical artifact, the Ma Wi Jung, said to be hidden somewhere in the frozen north. And only John deBrun knows the device’s secrets, even if he can’t remember why or how! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Prentice Onayemi.
