Hollywood detective Toby Peters is asleep on his floor when the dentist who shares his office calls, wailing that his wife has left him. While on the one hand, Toby is shocked that a woman as unpleasant as Mildred could ever attract a suitor, he´s even more surprised by the name of the alleged Lothario: Peter Lorre, the scaly-voiced, bug-eyed Hollywood character actor. Though he can´t imagine why the dentist would want her back, Toby agrees to track down his missing wife. He finds Lorre in a greasy spoon near the Warner Brothers´ lot, but the actor doesn´t know a thing about the missing Mildred. Her boyfriend turns out to be a Peter Lorre impersonator, and by the time Toby finds him, he´s doing a very credible imitation of a dead man. The bullet was meant for the real Lorre, who has just become Toby´s client - whether Toby likes it or not. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Bowlby.

The travel bug bit author Peter O´Neil at a young age, propelling him out of his comfort zone and into a life of teaching and globetrotting. When the middle-school math teacher accepts a job at an international school in New Delhi, he embraces the opportunity to immerse himself in life in one of India´s largest cities. But a chance encounter with five cousins from the Kassana family at a lesser-known tourist site in Delhi offers O´Neil the opportunity to step away from the comforts of expatriate living and experience life in rural India. In their early twenties, the five men are members of the Gurjar caste - one of the lower castes - and barely able to communicate in English. Somehow, despite the significant differences in language, culture, and socioeconomic status, O´Neil and the cousins travel together to some of the country´s most rural villages, experiencing plenty of adventures along the way. Documenting the country´s mosaic of color and contradiction, O´Neil introduces listeners to India in all its splendor and suffering, taking them beyond the common sightseer spots and stereotypes to the heart and soul of the subcontinent. 1.

The Metamorphosis is a novella by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It has been cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is studied in colleges and universities across the Western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed (metamorphosed) into a large, monstrous insect-like creature. The cause of Gregor´s transformation is never revealed, and Kafka himself never gave an explanation. The rest of Kafka´s novella deals with Gregor´s attempts to adjust to his new condition as he deals with being burdensome to his parents and sister, who are repulsed by the horrible, verminous creature Gregor has become. Professional actor and voice talent Peter Berkrot makes this audiobook so real, you might want to have a bug swatter or a can of Raid by your side as you listen to it. 1. Language: English.
