Rio Duncan is one of the youngest children of the Duncan clan. With no solid position in the family business like his other siblings, he has been feeling out of place and decides to disappear. Rio leaves his Duncan identity behind and goes on a search for friends and family who can relate to him. His destination is Baltimore, and he is sure to find what he is looking for in the city with a community like no other. There, he also finds unexpected trouble. Corey Grant is making a name for himself in Baltimore with an inherited drug empire and a complicated relationship with his right-hand man. With plenty on his plate, Corey has almost no time for the romance he wants with Dre, and he feels like they are growing apart. That brings about a jealousy and insecurity that he doesn´t know how to control. Diana Black is Corey´s girlfriend-for-hire, and she has a taste for bad boys. She is loyal to Corey´s cause, but how long will that last? Rio´s personality and flair instantly gains him entrance into Corey´s circle. Rio says he´s looking for friends, but Corey is sure that other motives are on the table. When Rio has a change of heart about his newfound crew, he needs an escape plan. There is one problem: His family doesn´t know where he is. Did he inherit any of the ruthless traits he observed in his father and brothers? Can the most colorful Duncan son get out of Baltimore and back home safe and sound now that he´s on his own? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ace Bentley, Dylan Ford, Morae Brehon.

At last, the most talked about footballer of his generation does his own talking. It´s heartfelt, it´s raw, it´s one hell of a story. Every football fan has an opinion on Rio Ferdinand. He is one of the most gifted footballers this country has ever produced, twice breaking the British transfer record, but he courts controversy in equal measure. Most famously he was dropped by England for missing a drugs test, his subsequent eight-month ban making front-page news. But then there is the glorious football. He captained Leeds in a Champions League semi-final, won the Premiership and Carling Cup with Manchester United and was England´s outstanding player in the 2002 and 2006 World Cups. We´ve all read the front and back page stories. Now, for the first time, Rio tells it as it is, from the heart, no holds barred. This is his explosive story of the good, the bad, and the beautiful game. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Felix Dexter.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Blame It on Bianca Del Rio, written and read by Bianca Del Rio. Not today, Satan. The cheeky, larger-than-life drag queen and outrageous comic - ´The Joan Rivers of the Drag World´ (New York Times) - who isn´t afraid to shock or offend, shares her trademark acerbic wit and sharp commentary in this uproarious collection of advice. When it comes to insult comics, Bianca Del Rio is in a class by herself. Fierce, funny, and fabulous - a would-be love child sired by John Waters and birthed by Joan Rivers - Bianca sandblasted her name in the annals of pop culture on RuPaul´s Drag Race. Thanks to her snarky frankness, impeccable comedic timing, and politically incorrect humour, she became the show´s breakout star, winning its sixth season. In Blame It on Bianca Del Rio, Bianca shares her opinions loudly and proudly, offering raucous, hilarious, no-holds-barred commentary on the everyday annoyances, big and small, that color her world, and make it a living, albeit amusing, hell for anyone who inhabits it. A collection of biting advice, Blame It on Bianca Del Rio will shock you and keep you laughing. But be warned: it is not for the faint of heart! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bianca Del Rio.

Nemesis is the story of an ordinary man who became the king of the largest slum in Rio, the head of a drug cartel, and perhaps Brazil´s most wanted criminal. It´s a gripping tale of gold hunters and evangelical pastors, bent police and rich-kid addicts, quixotic politicians and drug lords with math degrees. Traversing through rain forests and high-security prisons, filthy slums and glittering shopping malls, this is also the story of how change came to Brazil. Of a country´s journey into the global spotlight and the battle for the beautiful but damned city of Rio, as it struggles to break free from a tangled web of corruption, violence, drugs, and poverty. 1.
