San Francisco, September 1921: Silent-screen comedy star Roscoe ´´Fatty´´ Arbuckle is throwing a wild party in his suite at the St. Francis Hotel: girls, jazz, bootleg hooch...and a dead actress named Virginia Rappe. The D.A. says it was Arbuckle who killed her - crushing her under his weight - and brings him up on manslaughter charges. William Randolph Hearst´s newspapers stir up the public and demand a guilty verdict. But what really happened? Why do so many people at the party seem to have stories that conflict? Why is the prosecution hiding witnesses? Why are there body parts missing from the autopsied corpse? Why is Hearst so determined to see Fatty Arbuckle convicted? In desperation, Arbuckle´s defense team hires a Pinkerton agent to do an investigation of his own and, they hope, discover the truth. The agent´s name is Dashiell Hammett, and he´s the book´s narrator. What he discovers will change American legal history - and his own life - forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dick Hill.

In the raucous, bloody, red-light district of Storyville, New Orleans, in 1907, where 2,000 scarlet women ply their trade, where cocaine and opium are sold over the counter, and where rye whiskey flows like an amber river, there´s a killer loose. Someone is murdering Storyville prostitutes and marking each killing with a black rose. As Creole detective Valentin St. Cyr begins to investigate, he encounters a cast of characters drawn from history: Tom Anderson, the political boss who runs Storyville like a private kingdom; Lulu White, the district´s most notorious madam; a young piano player who would come to be known as Jelly Roll Morton; and Buddy Bolden, the man who all but invented jazz. No ordinary mystery, Chasing the Devil´s Tail is a chilling portrait of musical genius and self-destruction, set at the moment when jazz was born. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dion Graham.

Devil´s Trill - a mystery in sonata-allegro form - is the first-ever audiobook to integrate musical passages that provide clues to solving the mysteries! Author Gerald Elias, a renowned concert violinist himself, performs the music. Blind, sharp-tongued violinist Daniel Jacobus, living in self-imposed exile in rural New England, is drawn into mysterious crimes in New York City. A stolen Stradivarius - a strangled teacher of child prodigies - Jacobus is not only the chief investigator of these misdeeds, he´s the prime suspect! A police detective hot on his tail, Jacobus roams the bucolic Berkshires, hallowed Carnegie Hall, and tradition-bound Japan, searching for answers only he can see. With alluring student Yumi and jazz-loving Nathaniel at his side, Jacobus feels his way through self-doubt and darkness. The shadowy spheres of classical music and steamy streets of the Big Apple give noir a new meaning in the first mystery novel in the gripping Daniel Jacobus series. 1. Language: English.
