As I was driving, the dog-tags swung from my rearview mirror. I started to wonder, had it all been worth it? All the lies, the manipulation, and the hurt that would break him, just as it had broken me, if he had ever found out. I took one last glance out my rearview mirror, as the bluffs faded away behind the hill. There it goes, the life I had, that I will never have again: The friends, the enemies, and the pain. On to the next chapter in my life. The road was winding into the distance and some rumbling thunderstorms lay ahead. My future is unknown, but hopefully my past will fade with time, but then again, scars rarely do… 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Chevalier.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Smiling Man by Joseph Knox, read by Lewys Taylor. 'I usually experienced the presence of a dead body as an absence, but in this case it felt like a black hole opening up in front of me.' Disconnected from his history and careless of his future, Detective Aidan Waits has resigned himself to the night shift. An endless cycle of meaningless emergency calls and lonely dead ends. Until he and his partner, Detective Inspector Peter 'Sutty' Sutcliffe, are summoned to The Palace, a vast disused hotel in the centre of a restless, simmering city. There they find the body of a man. He is dead. And he is smiling. The tags have been removed from the man's clothes. His teeth filed down and replaced. Even his fingertips are not his own. Only a patch sewn into the inside of his trousers gives any indication as to who he was and to the desperate last act of his life.... But even as Waits puts together the pieces of this stranger's life, someone is sifting through the shards of his own. When the mysterious fires, anonymous phone calls and outright threats escalate, he realises that a ghost from his own past haunts his every move. And to discover the smiling man's identity, he must finally confront his own. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lewys Taylor.

"It might not make sense, but the beloved Media tags it 'Murder by Munchausen.' For a price, there are hackers out there who will reprogram a synthoid to do your dirty work.

The trick is to get them before they melt down their core OS data, so you can get the unit into forensics for analysis and, hopefully, an arrest."
