)Award-winning dramatist Stephen Poliakoff’s story of passion and prejudice blows open the volatile world of 1930s London. Starring Golden Globe award-winning best supporting actress, Jacqueline Bisset, in Dancing On The Edge it’s the height of the jazz age…It’s the height of the jazz age and one group of black musicians are poised to take London by storm. As the band grows in popularity and starts to mix with the upper classes, the intoxicating combination of music, money and parties pull the characters into a glamorous but perilous world. Soon the band begins to feel immune from the prejudice hovering beneath the surface of society, but the sudden death of one of the band members creates a catastrophic turn in their fortunes. They immediately find themselves confronted by betrayal, and their privileged position is quickly torn away as they begin to discover who their friends really are.
Considered by many to be the last of the true 40s and 50s film noirs, Odds Against Tomorrow is the story of a daring robbery gone wrong. When ruthless killer Earle Slater (Robert Ryan) teams up with crooked ex-cop Dave Burke (Ed Begley), and gambler Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte) to rob a New York bank, things quickly start to go wrong. Fuelled by his racist hatred, Earle continually clashes with Johnny resulting in the heist quickly spiralling out of control. With the escalating tension comes increasing violence as Slater’s prejudice drives both him and Ingram to the very edge. With its dark jazz score and brooding atmosphere Odds Against Tomorrow represents one of the most important films about race and racism, and was directed by 4 time Oscar winner Robert Wise (The Sound of Music, West Side Story).

Madame Eve's 1Night Stand service introduces Gunnery Sergeant Jasmine "Jazz" Winters to best friends and retired Marines, Logan Cavanaugh, and Zach Evans. At the end of their night of frenzied passion in Las Vegas, Jazz walks away from the only two men who ever made her feel like a woman. Logan and Zach let her go, but only if she swears all of her future leaves to them. These three Marines shared everything, but will one night be enough? Live happily ever after with them in No Regrets, No Surrender Waiting fourteen excruciatingly long months, visiting Jazz when they can, is harder on the guys than they like to admit. But their work at Mike's Place, a veteran's rehabilitative facility, only lets Zach and Logan go one at a time. Jazz fears their unconventional relationship can't last a lifetime. The stress of years of military service in hot zones, combined with life-threatening injuries pushes her to the edge. But when she comes home a wounded warrior, not the woman she believes they want, Zach and Logan are right there to help her, even when she resists. She's not alone. And whether she chooses one man or both, they have no regrets and they won't surrender. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christine Padovan.

Honky-Tonk Street--a dark, lonely, sordid edge of town--a place where Johnny Nickles and his jazz band are playing hot sets in seedy clubs and rundown bars. But a killer is stalking Johnny's band, and Johnny finds himself trapped in a deadly game of chicken with a local power broker, a corrupt sheriff, and a professional thug for hire. What's worse, the group's mysterious "Ghost Album", which memorializes and recreates classic jazz songs by long-dead masters, has become almost a curse on the band. This is a haunting, forgotten classic of the noir crime novel. Beckman knows his music and his setting, and struts them out as masterfully as any jazzman playing a hot solo to a packed house. It doesn't get much better than this! First publication in six decades. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Crisden. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/000762/bk_acx0_000762_sample.mp3.
