"You're the murder man, aren't you?" Mrs. James demanded. "Well, that's not exactly how I describe myself," Bobby answered. Bobby Owen and his wife Olive are on holiday, enjoying a motor tour of England, when they visit Bobby's old ancestral home and his cousin Myra. An eerie air hangs over the household, where Teddy Peel, a psychic medium of dubious repute, has become a fixture. Myra's husband himself is a specialist in African folklore, the owner of a genuine witch doctor's bag. What's inside the bag, and how that connects to the promise of riches, whispered threats and very real murder, forms another absorbing puzzler for Bobby. Six Were Present (1956) is the thirty-fifth and final novel in the Bobby Owen Mystery series, here presented with a new introduction and additional notes. This new edition also features the script of the rare radio play Death on the Up-Lift (1941), starring Bobby Owen, here published for the first time. "What is distinction? … in the works of Mr. E.R. Punshon we salute it every time."--Dorothy L. Sayers

Reginald Worthington is a vindictive man. He blames US Marshal Mason Sadler for the death of his only child, the former Mrs. Sadler. Now Worthington wants revenge. Enlisting the services of a highly skilled team of cutthroats, he dispatches them to Tombstone with orders to kill Sadler and anyone he cares about, especially Belle Dubois, the Bird Cage Theater Madame and the love of his life who just happens to be the new Mrs. Sadler. Not leaving the Marshal's demise to chance, Worthington also engages the talents of the Professor and his latest invention, a quadcopter mounted with a Gatling Gun. His mission? Kill Sadler, even if it means destroying Tombstone in the process. Expecting Worthington's retribution, the Marshal assembles his own team: the ever resourceful Belle Dubois who just happens to be a Pinkerton agent; two Chiricahua Machinists and their single-seater airships; Johnny Ringo, a gunslinger of questionable repute; and two walking dead, one a 350-year-old conquistador and the other a recently murdered miner. Right now, things aren't looking too good for the Marshal and his motley crew. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Wannall.

The original authorised biography, and the only one written by an author who actually met J. R. R. Tolkien.In the 25 years since Tolkien’s death in September 1973, millions have read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion and become fascinated about the very private man behind the books.Born in Bloemfontein in January 1892, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was orphaned in childhood, brought up in near poverty and almost thwarted in adolescent romance. He served in the First World War, surviving the Battle of the Somme, where he lost some of his closest friends, and returned to academic life, achieving high repute as a scholar and university teacher, eventually becoming Merton Professor of English at Oxford.Then suddenly his life changed dramatically. One day while marking essay papers he found himself writing 'In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit' - and worldwide renown awaited him.Humphrey Carpenter was given unrestricted access to all Tolkien’s papers and interviewed his friends and family. From these sources he follows the long and painful process of creation that produced The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion and offers a wealth of information about the life and work of the 20th century's most cherished author. 1.

This audiobook is a collection of very different stories, ranging in length from flash fiction to novella, in genres from mystery, fantasy, alternate history, experiments, and others, set in time from the distant past to the present...and a little bit beyond. What are contained in these tales? Tornadoes pop up here and there. Jack the Ripper stops by a couple of times, sort of, along with other persons of ill or odd repute. There's a pet cockroach; healing in the silence of a muskrat; a farmer who finds meaning in fireflies and rain. Then there's the escaped slave who meets his former master, the Civil War prisoner who just wants to go home, and the doctor's wife who shows the power of a small act of kindness. These are stories of odd connections: A winter storm conjures up images of the past and future; a drainage tunnel reveals the truth of domestic abuse and, ultimately, death. A chicken, a cannon, Christianity and Native American religion. Old Norse mythology and Christianity. A diary from the future, found in the past. An assassination that unites a divided country. And the last story...who in this world can know what connections are happening there? 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Calvert.

Eleven Rare Stamps = Death in Six Figures...."Fresh background material and a fine storytelling knack." (Lewisville Courier-Journal)Jonathan Knox was an auctioneer of somewhat dubious repute with a photographic memory. So when a frightened woman offered him a discount on eleven of the rarest stamps in existence, worth something like $500,000, he became suspicious. He figured also that if the stamps had been stolen he might net a pretty reward by returning them to their rightful owner. But he couldn't find a single collector willing to admit to owning them. And when the girl who had originally offered them was murdered, Knox knew that he'd be the next one canceled unless he could find the person who would pay the growing postage-due bill from the devil's own mail carrier. That's when the auctioneer found himself forced to play very reluctant sleuth, with his own life as the stakes.In this colorful, never-reprinted 1950s classic you will encounter:Jonathan Knox: This auctioneer's photographic memory coupled with his lack of scruples made him a detested necessity to many people. And, too often, it also marked him for murder.Elly Watson: She was better at bargaining than Knox. But when she gave him a bargain - it was more than he bargained for.Edmund Dorsey deLong: Like many philatelists, he would stop at nothing for his stamp collection. Not even a killing.Henrietta Noyes: They had to kill her to break her hold on them. So they targeted her for murder.Louis Plummer: His customers were interested in his goods, but not where they came from. This case was the exception.Everett Kirkland: He should never have been an actor - too many people had seen his face. That could make it unhealthy for a man involved in murder. 1. Language: English.
