A cop on a mission. A woman running from her fate. Both on a collision course with evil.... In the pulse-pounding sequel to Bad Wolf, the nightmare that ripped open two lives slips from the darkness to once again stalk the streets of Portland. Three months after his partner mysteriously vanished, detective John Gallagher remains haunted by his encounter with something that should not exist. With no clues as to his partner´s disappearance, detective Lara Mendes is presumed dead, but Gallagher refuses to give up the search. Like a man possessed, he pushes himself to the brink to find her. At a downtown firing range, 17-year-old Amy Gallagher is taught how to fire a gun by her father. She goes along for his sake, but Amy is increasingly troubled by her father´s instability. His nightmares, paranoia, and obsession with finding his missing partner are clear signs of post-traumatic stress, but her pleas for him to seek help fall on deaf ears. Chafing under his strict rules, Amy struggles to save her dad before he pushes himself over the edge. Two hundred miles away, a woman with a terrible secret hides in the vastness of the Oregon wilderness, desperate to outrun her fate. Banished into self-imposed exile with a worsening condition, ex-detective Lara Mendes has exhausted any hope for a cure to her cursed existence. With no options left, her last chance at peace may be to take her own life. Stalking her through the pines is a primordial nightmare plucked straight from a Grimm´s fairytale. It wants Lara Mendes and will stop at nothing to get her. The only question that remains is who will get to her first, and what will Lara do when they come? 1. Language: English.

A string of gruesome deaths in the Shiprock area has attracted the attention of FBI agent Diane Lopez. The killer is unmistakably a vampire - but the only vampire Diane knows of is State Police officer Lee Nez. One of the good guys. The victims worked for a secret government lab that was studying a captured vampire, Stewart Tanner. Driven mad, Tanner broke free and took revenge on his tormenters. Now he’s threatening to kill a powerful judge unless the feds promise to leave him alone. Forced to use his supernatural abilities to track a vampire gone bad, Lee has trouble concealing his true nature from Dr. Victor Wayne, the researcher who captured Tanner in the first place. Lee knows that he has to find Tanner before the rogue vampire kills again. He also knows that there can be only one outcome when they meet. Either he, or Tanner, will die. 1. Language: English.

The Pale Horseman is the compelling sequel to the best-selling The Last Kingdom. Uhtred, Northumbrian born, raised a Viking and now married to a Saxon, is already a formidable figure and warrior. But at 20 he is still arrogant, pagan, and headstrong, so not a comfortable ally for the thoughtful, pious Alfred. But these two, with Alfred´s family and a few of Uhtred´s companions, are apparently all that remains of the Wessex leadership after a disastrous truce. It is the lowest time for the Saxons. Defeated comprehensively by the Vikings who now occupy most of England, Alfred and his surviving followers retreat to the trackless marshlands of Somerset. There, forced to move restlessly to escape betrayal or detection, using the marsh mists for cover, they travel by small boats from one island to another, hoping that they can regroup and find some more strength and support. They seek refuge in Athelney, a tidal swamp to which Alfred´s kingdom has shrunk. Uhtred finds himself torn between his Danish foster brother and the winning Vikings, and his growing respect for the stubborn leadership of Alfred. He must decide whether to rebuild the Saxons´ strength from his watery base and help them to take on the Vikings once more. The Pale Horseman is a splendid story of divided loyalties and desperate heroism, with a wonderful range of characters from Vikings to British kings in their Cornish fortresses, from political but passionate priests to enduring fishermen and farmers desperately striving to survive as the battle sweeps over them. Uhtred and Alfred, Vikings and Saxons, are a winning combination for Bernard Cornwell. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jamie Glover.
