Showstopper (Audio CD)
Peter Lovesey / Peter Wickham

Since the start of the hit British TV show Swift, its cast and crew have been plagued by misfortune. There have been multiple injuries by fall, fire, or drowning; two deaths; and two missing persons cases. The media quickly decides it's a curse, but is there a criminal conspiracy afoot? Now that filming has moved to Bath, Peter Diamond, Chief of the Avon and Somerset Murder Squad, is on the case. While the investigation into one fatal accident is underway, a cameraman goes missing - how can so many things go wrong on one set in such a short time? Complicating already complex matters is the fact that Diamond's boss is trying her best to get him out of her hair; he may be forced to retire if he can't solve the case. Will this be the end for Peter Diamond?

One By One (Audio CD)
Helen Bridgett / Karen Cass

Professor Maxie Reddick has her reasons for being sceptical of traditional policing methods, but, in between her criminology lecturing job and her Criminal Thoughts podcast, she stays firmly on the sidelines of the crime solving world. Then a young woman is brutally attacked, and suddenly its essential that Maxie turns her words into actions; this is no longer an academic exercise - this is somebody's life. But as she delves deeper, the case takes a sickening turn, which leads Maxie to the horrifying realisation that the attack might not have been a one-off. It seems there's a depraved individual out there seeking revenge, and they'll stop at nothing to get it . . . little by little . . . one by one.

The Drift (Audio CD)
C.J. Tudor / Richard Armitage & Nathalie Buscombe & Rachel Handshaw

During a deadly snowstorm, Hannah awakens to carnage, all mangled metal and shattered glass. Evacuated from a secluded boarding school, her coach careered off the road, trapping her with a handful of survivors. Meg awakens to a gentle rocking. She's in a cable car stranded high above snowy mountains, with five strangers and no memory of how they got on board. Carter is gazing out of the window of an isolated ski chalet that he and his companions call home. As their generator begins to waver in the storm, the threat of something lurking in the chalet's depths looms larger. Outside, the storm rages. Inside one group, a killer lurks. But which one? And who will make it out alive?

Still Standing (Audio CD)
Stephen Leather / Paul Thornley

The SAS are used to deaths during combat - it goes with the turf. But when one of their own is said to have committed suicide in Thailand, red flags are raised. Pete Green wasn't the sort of soldier who would ever take his own life - and no one is more sure of that than his twin brother, Billy. Billy is determined to find out what really happened. But if he is going to find out the truth he'll need help - the sort of help only SAS Sergeant Matt Standing can provide. But soon after they arrive they come under attack, leaving Standing to investigate on his own. There are clearly people who want to shut down all enquiries and Standing knows he will have to use all his SAS jungle skills to survive. This will be the toughest of assignments but nothing will come between him and the truth...

The Hollows (Audio CD)
Daniel Church / Gloria Sanders

In a lonely village in the Peak District, during the onset of a once-in-a-lifetime snow storm, Constable Ellie Cheetham finds a body. The man, a local ne'er-do-well, appears to have died in a tragic accident: he drank too much and froze to death. But the facts don't add up: the dead man is clutching a knife in one hand, and there's evidence he was hiding from someone. Stranger still, an odd mark has been drawn onto a stone beside his body. The next victims are two families on the outskirts of town. As the storm rises and the body count grows, Ellie realises she has a terrifying problem on her hands: someone - or some thing - is killing indiscriminately, using the storm for cover. The killer is circling ever closer to the village. The storm's getting worse...and the power's just gone out.
