    The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia

    A new biography of the legendary adventurer, who became a living myth.

    "T.E. Lawrence is next to impossible to fix on the page. Yet Michael Korda has done so, delivering up a crowded, improbable life in a page-turning biography, every bit as rich as its protean subject. A splendid read." - Stacy Schiff, author of Cleopatra: A Life

  • The Darkening Field

    By William Ryan

    Read by Robin Sachs

    A shocking and exciting thriller from William Ryan, the acclaimed author of The Holy Thief.

    Starred review. "Booklist lauded Ryan's first Korolev novel, The Holy Thief, and this successor fully delivers on the promise of that judgment. Korolev is a wonderful character, a spiritual ancestor of Martin Cruz Smith's Arkady Renko, persevering amid the murderous paranoia of Stalin's Russia. The plot is intricate, the action satisfying, and Ryan's use of period detail, including the brutal 'collectivization' of the Ukraine and that region's nationalist and anarchist movements, makes for exhilarating reading." - Booklist
