As you are probably aware, since April of this year the number of Oakhill Adult Audio Books has increased from nine to twelve, the result being that we are able to offer an even wider range of titles for your clients to enjoy.

It's difficult to know where to start, such is the wonderful selection this quarter, but one that's bound to appeal is Veronica Henry's A Night on the Orient Express. Winner of the 2014 RNA Novel of the Year, it follows the fortunes of a mixed bag of passengers travelling on the famous train, revealing reasons for their journeys, which for many will be life changing. The Taxidermist's Daughter by Kate Mosse, set in rural Sussex, combines murder, folklore and suspicion in this unsettling story of a woman on the fringe of things who follows in the footsteps of her father, the taxidermist of the title.

The Children's programme remains at four titles a month and sees the return of the ever-popular Dirty Bertie by David Roberts and Alan MacDonald in Dinosaur! & Zombie! As ever he causes havoc in a series of escapades which make adults squirm and kids chortle.

Older children will be engrossed by Marcus Sedgwick's She Is Not Invisible, the story of a blind girl who goes to New York in search of her missing father, with only her young brother for company. Of particular interest is the fact that the book is read from the Braille by Anna Cannings who has been blind since birth, and the recording features a bonus conversation between herself and the author.
