Janet Marsh's move into her house has been delayed due to vandalism. Then, when the women go to look for clues that might tell them to who is guilty, they find a corpse (murder!) in Janet's garden shed. Constable Hobbs answers their emergency call. He's calm and quietly pleased, as he's never had a murder case. Then the contents of a dozen or so garbage bags are discovered behind the bookshop. The letters inside are nasty. The more the women find out about Una, the more people they discover who detested her and aren't sad she's gone. If Janet and her bookshop crew are reading the clues right, they're about to expose the most sensational story the town of Inversgail has ever heard. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elaine Claxton.

Six months filming trash in the Great Garbage Patch from under the water's surface had dolphin-shifter Barrie ready for a vacation. A good long one, preferably with someone cute. Once his report was done at the Seattle Climate Change conference, he was so chilling out.If he could. What with Ma calling him all the damned time and the stress of the conference, Barrie was about ready to shift back to his dolphin form and never come back to land. Anything was better than dealing with Ma again.He was ready to swim for the sunset until he met Alek, a tiger shifter with a history and PTSD to match it.Now Barrie has to figure out how to get Ma to back off while romancing the first guy he's met in a long damned time who understood and accepted Barrie. Because if he couldn't get Ma to leave Barrie alone, Alek and Barrie's jobs were both history.
The futuristic hardboiled noir that Lauren Beukes calls "sharp as a paper-cut" about a garbage man turned kill-for-hire. Spademan used to be a garbage man. That was before the dirty bomb hit Times Square, before his wife was killed, and before the city became a blown-out shell of its former self. Now he's a hitman. In a near-future New York City split between those who are wealthy enough to "tap in" to a sophisticated virtual reality, and those who are left to fend for themselves in the ravaged streets, Spademan chose the streets. When his latest client hires him to kill the daughter of a powerful evangelist, he must navigate between these two worlds - the wasteland reality and the slick fantasy - to finish his job, clear his conscience, and make sure he's not the one who winds up in the ground. 1.

Every week we pile our rubbish out on the pavement. We go to work and when we return it's gone. Like magic! The reality is anything but, of course. Trashed, Derf Backderf's follow-up to the critically acclaimed, award-winning national bestseller My Friend Dahmer, is a working man's epic. An ode to the crap job of all crap jobs-but anyone who has ever been trapped in a soul-sucking gig can relate to this tale. Trashed takes place after Derf graduates high school, when he and his childhood pals find themselves working as garbagemen in their Midwestern hometown. Together they clean the streets of pile after pile of stinking garbage, overcoming the unique difficulties of each season and battling small-town bureaucrats and nuisances, all while trying to decide what they want to do with their lives. Interspersed are non-fiction pages that detail the history of trash, the staggering volume of garbage that is produced every day, the nuts and bolts of how our trash is disposed of beyond curbside recycling and what happens to it once it's removed from our houses, our streets and our office buildings. Inspired by Derf's own experiences, Trashed (like My Friend Dahmer) is a hilarious, stomach-churning, in-depth examination of this vast, unknown world, taking readers to a place they have never been before, in a way that only Derf, and comics, can.

But The World According to Charlie D. has an audience of over a million listeners. The murderer could be anyone, anywhere. Charlie and his team have less than two hours to find and stop the killer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Maté.

Elis O'Connor kills people. "Garbage men", to be exact-the predators, the abusers…and the occasional mansplainer. It scratches an itch and, since the death of her mother sent her spiraling, it hardly seems like the worst way to pass her time in a post-apocalyptic city crawling with demons and dimensional tears. One thing she doesn't do is save men. But when a woman comes to her door for help finding her missing cousin, she realizes she might have to do just that. Because while Elis would love to send her packing, this cousin isn't just anyone: he's Elis's estranged older half-brother Dev, and he's gotten himself into trouble even the considerable magic ability they both share can't get him out of.
