    Sir Merrick Hadrian hunts monsters, both human and supernatural. A Knight of the Order of the Round Table, his use of magick and the technologies of steam power have made him both respected and feared. But his considerable skills are useless in the face of his greatest challenge, guardianship of five unusual children. At a loss, Merrick enlists the aid of a governess....

    Story

    I enjoyed the story itself, though I could have handled less information about the children's lessons and mealtimes in return for more magic and adventure, though the chemistry between the hero and heroine was sizzilng. The narrator gave a solid performance, though her male voices sounded a little too growly for my taste. All in all, a pleasant listen during the workday.

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    Story

    Despite not knowing much more than the very basics about the Madoff Scandal or the finances behind it, I found this a truly interesting book that did a very good job explaining the more detailed information in a way that was accessible. I would have liked more information on Madoff himself, rather than the numbers. Scott Brick, as ever, did a wonderful job as narrator, and the addition certain documents being read by Harry Markopolos, Gaytri Kachroo and testimony by several Madoff victims rounded out the production very nicely.

    Imagine a future in which human boxing has been replaced by heavyweight bouts between massive robots. Richard Matheson’s classic short story, “Steel", is the inspiration for Real Steel, a new movie starring Hugh Jackman.

    Sara Moodie says: "Matheson always hits it out of the park"
    "Not my cup of tea, but brilliantly read."

    While Matheson's work, specifically his shorter works, are not my personal favorite, they are stunningly written and very moving tales, and Scott Brick's reading is, as ever, flawless. I know this will be a must for Matheson devotees.
