It's destination lay straight through Indian country where a murderous horde of Bannock Indians were attacking and killing wagon train immigrants. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maynard Villers.

Hawk goes down under when an Australian bookie is flung head-first from an exclusive tower restaurant by syndicate hitmen. Hawk aims to take on the Godfather himself, and the gun wielding hoods train their sights on him.But who’s behind the bold scheme to muscle in on the Sydney underworld? The gutless Tony Santoni, the ill-suited heir to a gangland empire in the States? Or someone with a flair for the dramatic - like the elusive actress who has made Hawk her captive audience? Hawk hurls himself into the blood-spattered world of rub-outs and racketeers to unmask the Mafia don and his murderous Moll. Michael Hawk is an investigative journalist with a knack for getting the scoop. Part Anderson Cooper, part Indiana Jones, with all of James Bond’s magnetic charm, he saves the day and gets the girl in the end. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Sorensen.

Winner of the 2014 Costa Book of the Year Award Winner of the 2014 Samuel Johnson Prize. Costa Biography Award Winner 2014 'In real life, goshawks resemble sparrowhawks the way leopards resemble housecats. Bigger, yes. But bulkier, bloodier, deadlier, scarier, and much, much harder to see. Birds of deep woodland, not gardens, they’re the birdwatchers’ dark grail.’ As a child Helen Macdonald was determined to become a falconer. She learned the arcane terminology and read all the classic books, including T. H. White’s tortured masterpiece, The Goshawk, which describes White’s struggle to train a hawk as a spiritual contest. When her father dies and she is knocked sideways by grief, she becomes obsessed with the idea of training her own goshawk. She buys Mabel for £800 on a Scottish quayside and takes her home to Cambridge. Then she fills the freezer with hawk food and unplugs the phone, ready to embark on the long, strange business of trying to train this wildest of animals. To train a hawk you must watch it like a hawk, and so gain the ability to predict what it will do next. Eventually you don’t see the hawk’s body language at all. You seem to feel what it feels. The hawk’s apprehension becomes your own. As the days passed and I put myself in the hawk’s wild mind to tame her, my humanity was burning away.’ Destined to be a classic of nature writing, H is for Hawk is a record of a spiritual journey - an unflinchingly honest account of Macdonald's struggle with grief during the difficult process of the hawk's taming and her own untaming. At the same time, it's a kaleidoscopic biography of the brilliant and troubled novelist T. H. White, best known for The Once and Future King. It's a book about memory, nature and nation, and how it might be possible to try to reconcile death with life and love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Helen MacDonald.

To Hawk O'Toole, she was a pawn in a desperate gamble to help his people. To Miranda Price, he was a stranger who'd done the unthinkable: kidnapped her and her young son off a train full of sight-seeing vacationers. Now, held hostage on a distant reservation for reasons she cannot at first fathom, Miranda finds herself battling a captor who is by turns harsh and tender, mysteriously aloof and dangerously seductive. Hawk had assumed that Miranda Price, the beautiful ex-wife of Representative Price, would be selfish and immoral as the tabloids suggested. Instead, she seems genuinely afraid for her son's life - and willing to risk her own to keep him safe. But committed to a fight he didn't start, Hawk knows he can't afford to feel anything but contempt for his prisoner. To force the government to reopen the Lone Puma Mine, he must keep Miranda at arm's length, must remember that she is his enemy - even when she ignites his deepest desires. Slowly, Miranda beings to learn what drives this brooding, solitary man, to discover the truth about his tragic past. But it will take a shocking revelation to finally force her to face her own past and the woman she's become, and to ask herself: Is it freedom she really wants...or a chance to stay with Hawk forever? 1.
