Storm Jameson´s fine audiobook tells the story of two men, their beginnings, ambitions, wives, failures, successes. Gregory Mott is seen at first solely through the eyes of other people: the old man who taught him when he was a child; his aristocratic wife; his oldest friend, Lambert Corry; and Harriet Ellis, at one time his mistress and still his close friend. He is a religious man, a writer whose Anglican beliefs have had considerable influence. For the past ten years he has been a successful Director of the Rutley Institute of Arts. What man could be happier or more secure? But suppose such a man makes an error, social or moral - and makes the further blunder of denying it? During a journey abroad this happens. Afterwards, in London, truth eats its way into his life through the defences of fear, vanity, self-deception, egoism. Friends, and his religious assurance itself, fail him, and step by step he is driven to look at himself in the clearest bearable light. The other man, Lambert Corry, makes no errors. And, though at one moment he runs some risk of recognising himself, his prudence and agility save him from this danger. Apart from the journey through France and the scene in a pilgrimage village in Switzerland, the action takes place in London, much of it in Mott´s house on the north side of Hyde Park. The view from this house, seen at different times of day or night, at different seasons, forms the background for a novel which is both a social comedy and the account of one man´s unwilling discovery of himself. Storm Jameson (1891- 1986) born to a North Yorkshire family of shipbuilders. Jameson´s fiery mother, who bore three girls, encouraged Storm (christened Margaret Storm) to pursue an academic education. After being taught privately and at Scarborough municipal school she won one of three county scholarships which enabled her to read English Literature at Leeds University. She then went on to complete an MA in European Drama at King´s College ... ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Bloodworth.

She has been called ´´the Julia Child of mystery writers.´´ Now, Diane Mott Davidson, who masterfully served up The Last Suppers, Killer Pancake, and Dying for Chocolate, returns with an irresistible five-star helping of suspense. When caterer Goldy Schulz takes a job with a multimillion-dollar financial firm, she finds herself in a high-stakes world where someone is out to make a killing.... Goldy, owner of Goldilocks´ Catering, barely weathered a disastrous spring in which relentless rains and driving snow put a real damper on her business. But now, thanks to her best friend, Marla, the Colorado caterer is suddenly cooking up a storm...lovingly preparing Crab Quesadillas, Tomato-Brie Pie, and Gold Foil-Wrapped Fudge Bars for her wealthy new client, Prospect Financial Partners. The Prospect Partners´ financial whiz, Tony Royce, with whom Marla is having a tempestuous affair, and Albert Lipscomb, who is personally managing Marla´s money, have hired Goldy to prepare a sumptuous party to kick off their latest venture: the reopening of the Eurydice Gold Mine. Anxious to take advantage of a golden opportunity, Goldy arrives at the mine site early, loaded down with goodies. Yet just when she thinks she can relax, all hell breaks loose--and the main culprit is Marla. Her best friend is sure the mine venture is a scam. And when, several days later, Albert ends up missing, it looks as if Marla was right. Why, then, is the police captain treating Goldy´s best friend as if she had committed a crime? And how can Goldy keep her fourteen-year-old son Arch and his unreliable bloodhound from making matters worse? As Goldy works furiously to restore her business by whipping up hot, fragrant Sour Cream Cherry Coffeecake and featherlight Cinnamon Scones, she finds herself drawn into a most unusual situation of missing partners, stolen millions, and multiple homicides. And only when Goldy can discover which of the victims is the main corpse will she be able to unravel the mystery that threatens to cancel out her friend´s dearest asset--her life.

Plutos - Den andra sanningen

- Berätta en historia! En historia som handlar om vänskap, sade han plötsligt och vände sig mot mig. - Ursäkta? hoppade jag upp överraskad av den oväntade frågan. Denna mans spiritualitet kunde sannerligen överraska i en konversation. Jag kollade hans mun, jo han log. Det tog några sekunder tills jag kunde urskilja hans ansikte som var vänt mot solen. - Vad vill du att jag ska berätta? sade jag lekfullt till honom. Han ryckte på axlarna. - Vad som helst, sade han. En egen historia, från ditt eget liv. En sann historia. Viktiga och sanna ögonblick som handlar om vänskap ska det vara. - Vad sa du? blängde jag på honom, nu med blandade känslor. - En historia om vänskap, är det något fel med det? svarade han förvånat. - Nej, det andra du sa, om viktiga och sanna ögonblick, påpekade jag. Det var ju inte många timmar sen jag mötte snubben i drömmen som pratade om samma sak. Vikten av ett liv i vänskap, de givna ögonblicken i en människas liv. Någonstans i Sverige sker ett möte mellan Kosmos, en före detta grek som avsagt sig sin grekiskhet, Katrin en som vill väl om alla och Björn en historieprofessor som kan nästan allt och lite till. Under den korta tid deras vägar möts blir Kosmos tillfrågad om en berättelse. En enkel fråga väcker en storm av känslor hos denna ambivalenta människa som resulterar i berättelsen om Plutos. En uppdiktad figur från Kosmos barndom som skildrar allt som landet därifrån har betytt. Plötsligt väller en erinran fram från ett liv och ett lands händelser som Kosmos förträngt och för länge sedan avsagt sig. Historia och personliga händelser vävs ihop till en resa i tid och rum. I berättelsen som han låter sina vänner ta del av står Katrin och Björn som två gestalter och fasta referenspunkter från den nya verklighet Kosmos låtit sig assimileras av. Den Andra Sanningen utspelar sig i Grekland, och i Sverige. Boken handlar om vänskap men är också en betraktelse över separation och om det som inträffar i det outsagda. Dimitris Karamitros bor i Sverige sedan 1979. Det här är hans första roman som ingår i en trilogi som handlar om den uppdiktade figuren Plutos. Han var arbetat inom media många år och som lärare i olika hantverk. Idag är han mest verksam som bildkonstnär.
