    In the shadow of the newly erected Berlin Wall, Alec Leamas watches as his last agent is shot dead by East German sentries. For Leamas, the head of Berlin Station, the Cold War is over. As he faces the prospect of retirement or worse - a desk job - Control offers him a unique opportunity for revenge. Assuming the guise of an embittered and dissolute ex-agent, Leamas is set up to trap Mundt, the deputy director of the East German Intelligence Service - with himself as the bait.

    Story

    This story was long on detail and short on story-line...too many words for too little action and the voice was boring. I was disappointed.

    Nicola Marter was born with a gift. When she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When a woman arrives with a small wooden carving at the gallery Nicola works at, she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird - the mythical creature from an old Russian fable. Compelled to know more, Nicola follows a young girl named Anna who leads her into the past on a quest through the glittering backdrops of the Jacobites and Russian courts, unearthing a tale of love, courage, and redemption.

    Sue says: "More heavy on the romance than the historical"

    Story

    Yes, this one did it...I like stories that capture a little history, a little romance, ok, a little fantasy i.e.; time travel or esp...yes, this one captured me. Ok, it may have been a bit predictable, but there were no vampires (thankfully) and it was not written for teenagers...I really liked it - I'd like more like this one...pure escapism

    Story

    This was a good read (listen) for a rainy weekend...not a riviting story, but comfortable..I particularly like Davina Porter (the reader), her accents and voices for the various characters really make them come alive...the story itself was interesting enough to keep me listening, but the story line was pretty formulary.

    Award-winning, best-selling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he’s one of the hottest stars in literature today with “The Thing About Cassandra,” a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see .International blockbuster bestselling author Diana Gabaldon sends a World War II RAF pilot through a stone circle to the time of her Outlander series in “A Leaf on the Winds of All Hallows.”

    Rev. says: "Entertaining short stories"
    "Good short listens...nice variety"
