Just released, Steven Pacey reads Robert Wilson’s crime thriller Stealing People.
London, January 2014. In the space of 32 hours, in a well-planned and highly organized operation, six billionaires’ children are taken off the streets of London in a series of slickly well-executed kidnaps.
The gang demands £25 million per hostage for “expenses” – not ransom. And when your child goes missing, you need Charles Boxer: a man with little left to lose, who’ll stop at nothing to save families suffering what he has.
The wealthy parents of the missing children know that Boxer will do more than police can – but that doesn’t mean the law will leave it to him. Intelligence agencies are all interested in the kidnaps because in each case the parents are related to people in power in the various countries involved.
Soon the investigation goes beyond the corridors of power and the boardrooms of big corporations – and to far darker corners. Even more worryingly for Boxer and his ex-wife, Mercy, it threatens to lead back to their own lives, too.
But still nobody knows what this mysterious kidnap gang ultimately want, and if they have a cause, what the hell is it?
An update on Susan Hill’s Printer’s Devil Court. This ghostly crime thriller is now available on audio, read by Steven Pacey.
One murky November evening, after a satisfying meal in their Fleet Street lodgings, a conversation between four medical students takes a curious turn, and Hugh is initiated into a dark secret. In the cellar of their narrow lodgings in Printer’s Devil Court and a little used mortuary in a subterranean annex of the hospital, they have begun to interfere with death itself, in shadowy experiments beyond the realms of medical ethics. They call on Hugh to witness an event both extraordinary and terrifying.
Years later Hugh has occasion to return to his student digs, and the familiar surroundings resurrect peculiar and unpleasant memories of these unnatural events, the true horror of which only slowly becomes apparent.

Volpone (Italian for “sly fox”) is a comedy play by English playwright Ben Jonson first produced in 1606. A merciless satire of greed and lust, it remains Jonson’s most-performed play, and it is ranked among the finest Jacobean Era comedies.
Text from: Wikipedia
Volpone is already a very rich man. But he worships gold, he understands greed, and he wants to get even richer. He knows that the bankers and lawyers and businessmen in the city around him will stop at nothing to make money… more and more money. Sound familiar?
