At the height of the Italian giallo boom of the early 1970s, scores of filmmakers turned their hand to crafting their own unique takes on these lurid murder-mystery thrillers. In The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, director Emilio P. Miraglia (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times) melds the giallo’s trademark twisty whodunit storytelling with gothic chills, concocting a gripping horror/thriller hybrid. Troubled aristocrat Alan Cunningham (Anthony Steffen, Django the B*stard), haunted by the death of his first wife Evelyn, tries to move on by marrying the seductive Gladys (Marina Malfatti, All the Colours of the Dark). Marital bliss is short-lived, however, as various relatives meet untimely and gruesome deaths, prompting speculation that a vengeful Evelyn has risen from the grave... Populated by an array of Euro cult stars, including Giacomo Rossi Stuart (Caltiki the Immortal Monster) and the unforgettable Erika Blank (Kill, Baby... Kill!), and featuring a lush lounge score by giallo maestro Bruno Nicolai, The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave offers up a beguiling, unique and downright insane twist on a familiar formula.

Will Gnà Peppina give her customers what they need, even if it’s more than food?What pleasures can a man indulge in after his wife has put him on a draconian diet?Who will be able to cook dinner for the family with five euros?Five humorous short stories ablaze with the Sicilian sunshine, vibrating with the singsongs of the street sellers, fragrant with the scent of the sea.Written by Stefania Hartley, The Sicilian Mama."Full of atmosphere, fun and warmth. It’s an absolutely charming read." (Shirley Blair, senior editor of The People’s Friend magazine, on the short story "Cooking with Franca")“I don’t just give them food […] I give them what they need!”So says Gnà Peppina in Stefania Hartley’s utterly delightful short story collection, Fresh from the Sea and Other Short Stories. The unifying theme is food, but Italian family life is at the heart of this collection and what a vibrant depiction of family life it is! In “Five Euro Challenge”, a husband and wife compete to buy the ingredients for a family meal for under five euros, while in “Gnà Peppina”, the story of widow Gnà Peppina is cleverly served over five courses with an extra sweet ending. In “Forbidden Pleasures” Marta suspects that giving up sugar has led her husband into other, more worrying temptations....There is a freshness and candour about Hartley’s writing. Her tongue is as sharp as a Sabatier knife but there’s always a twinkle in her eye. The imagery is deft and evocative, whether we’re encountering “belligerent lobsters” at the fish market, or Amanda the bimbo with her red Ferrari lips at Carla and Massimo’s party. Hartley’s characters come alive from the very first line and hold your attention right to the end."Hartley doesn’t just give us stories, she gives us a slice of Italian life served with lashings of charm and wit. Highly recommended!" (Ella Hayes, author of Her Brooding Scottish Heir)"In th 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stefania Hartley.

The arrival of a meteorite in a small Finnish town causes chaos and crime in this poignant, chilling and hilarious new thriller from the King of Helsinki Noir.A man with dark thoughts on his mind is racing along the remote snowy roads of Hurmevaara in Finland when there is flash in the sky and something crashes into the car. That something turns about to be a highly valuable meteorite. With euro signs lighting up the eyes of the locals, the unexpected treasure is temporarily placed in a neighbourhood museum, under the watchful eye of a priest named Joel. But Joel has a lot more on his mind than simply protecting the riches that have apparently rained down from heaven. His wife has just revealed that she is pregnant. Unfortunately Joel has strong reason to think the baby isn’t his. As Joel tries to fend off repeated and bungled attempts to steal the meteorite, he must also come to terms with his own situation and discover who the father of the baby really is. Transporting the listener to the culture, landscape and mores of northern Finland, Little Siberia is both a crime novel and a hilarious, blacker-than-black comedy about faith and disbelief, love and death, and what to do when bolts from the blue - both literal and figurative - turn your life upside down. 1.

For years, Celina Storton had been in love with Robin, the Earl of Torrington, but he spent his time in Paris, pursuing beautiful women and the more the merrier. Then his mother's illness forced him to return to England, where she demanded that he marry quickly, as she had not long to live. She had chosen his bride for him - Celina. He was horrified by this threat to his liberty, but since Celina was an old friend and as he loved his mother, he agreed. Only when the wedding was over, did his mother reveal that she was not as ill as she had seemed. Furious at the way he had been tricked into marriage, Robin turned on his wife, certain that she must have been party to the deception. But Celina was innocent and became angry at his accusations. She was ready to walk out on him, but then she discovered that his tenants had been ill-treated during his long absences in Paris. She set out to improve their lives, and became so determined to achieve this end that she almost forgot her husband. Robin was not used to women who stood up to him or ignored him. But his wife did both and he found himself intrigued. But neither of them had reckoned with a man who sought revenge on Robin for putting him in prison, and who had finally tracked him down.
