The full truth of what happened that night at the Duchess of Richmond´s ball is revealed. Julian Fellowes´s Belgravia is a story in 11 episodes published week by week in the tradition of Charles Dickens. Belgravia is the story of a secret. A secret that unravels behind the porticoed doors of London´s grandest postcode. The story behind the secret will be revealed in weekly bite-sized instalments complete with twists and turns and cliffhanger endings. Set in the 1840s, when the upper echelons of society began to rub shoulders with the emerging industrial nouveau riche, Belgravia is peopled by a rich cast of characters. But the story begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. At the Duchess of Richmond´s now legendary ball, one family´s life will change forever.... You can preorder the full Belgravia series as a single audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Juliet Stevenson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000966/bk_orio_000966_sample.mp3.

You can feel it in most places in the small town of Anderbury . . . the fear that something or someone is watching you. It began back in 1986, at the fair, on the day of the accident. That was when twelve-year-old Eddie met Mr Halloran - the Chalk Man. He gave Eddie the idea for the drawings: a way to leave secret messages for his friends and it was fun, until the chalk men led them to a body. Thirty years later, Ed believes the past is far behind him, until an envelope slips through the letterbox. It contains a stick of chalk, and a drawing of a figure. Is history going to repeat itself?

Now available for preorder: KILL ´EM ALL, the stunning sequel to KILL YOUR FRIENDS What do you do when the homeless man on the street you´ve just given money to thanks you by name and turns out to be one of your ´closest´ friends, one you haven´t seen for over twenty years? Take him for a hot meal and see him on his way? Give him a lot more money than you usually would? Or take him in and try to get him back on his feet? For Alan, there´s no question - only natural that he´d want to see his old mate Craig off the streets, even if only for a few nights, and into some clean clothes. But what if the successful life you´ve made for yourself - good job, happy marriage, lovely kids, grand Victorian house (you did well out of the property boom, thank you very much) - is one that that your old pal would quite like to have too? Even if it means taking it from you? Gradually, inevitably, mayhem ensues as Craig turns Alan´s orderly household upside down, threatening to wreck Alan´s life for good. Following the divergent lives of two childhood friends, No Good Deed is a funny and painful examination of friendship; of the strange currents of ambition, loathing, pity and affection that flow between people over the decades; and of men getting older as they fail and succeed.
