    Story

    There have been many biographies of Stalin, but the court that surrounded him is untravelled ground. Simon Sebag Montefiore, acclaimed biographer of Catherine the Great's lover, prime minister, and general, Potemkin, has unearthed the vast underpinning that sustained Stalin. Not only ministers such as Molotov or secret service chiefs such as Beria, but men and women whose loyalty he trusted only until the next purge.

    Overall

    This audiobok has NO structure - I mean no Chapters that dissect it by topic or time. Consequently it quickly becomes just a stream of words many of which are (inevitably) meaningless. This lack of structure unfortunately turns an otherwise excellent Narrator (John Nettles) into something like a software translator.
    I do not recommend it to anyone

    Story

    As Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón investigates a mutilated, faceless corpse unearthed on the municipal dump, the beautiful city of Seville is rocked by a massive explosion which devastates an apartment building and a nearby kindergarten. When it's discovered that there was a mosque in the basement, everybody's terrorist fears are confirmed.

    "The Hidden Assassins"
    Overall

    You got the classification of this book wrong - it should have Erotica and Sexuality rather then MYsteries and THrillers.
    In addition the language is frequently profane and the Narrator is second rate at best.
