If being a grown-up were as simple as holding down a job, buying a reliable car, finding the home of your dreams, and living happily ever after, there’d be no need for this true story. But the author’s unorthodox approach and complete failure to accept the world of adulthood was never going to make it that straightforward - especially when Brexit threw a spanner in the works.Set against the backdrop of his ever-swelling mid-30s grumpiness and the growing realization that he might never actually become a millionaire, this audiobook follows him and his trusty hatchback as they travel from England to Vienna, seizing the chance to live in Europe before it got closed to Brits forever. It's a journey that takes him to Cyprus and Venice, Slovenia and Surrey, Belgium and Bonn. 1. Language: English. Narrator: R. A. Dalkey.

From the old days of mobsters in smoky barrooms plotting to gun down their rivals, to the new age of ordinary people hiring contract killers through the Dark Web, this book depicts the history of assassins and how they work. While movies portray assassins as glamorous, wealthy, and full of mystery, the sober truth is often quite different. The number of homicides credited to contract killers each year is staggering, and on the rise: business people killing their rivals, organized gang war kills, honor killings, and even cold-blooded kills between spouses. In Blood Money: The Method and Madness of Assassins, RJ Parker documents over a dozen infamous cases of professional assassins including Richard Kuklinski (The Ice Man), Charles Harrelson (Natural Born Killer), and Vincent Coll (Mad Dog). Included is also a riveting foreword written by Dr. Scott Bonn, providing his reasoning why an assassin is not considered a serial killer in the professional community. RJ Parker PhD is an award-winning and best-selling true crime author and publisher of RJ Parker Publishing. He has written 26 true crime books sold in over 100 countries. He holds certifications in serial crime and criminal profiling. Parker amazes his audiences with top notch writing and idealist research. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Don Kline.

Real-life parents talk real-life parenting! This book isn't a guide or a parenting manual - it's more of a support group for parents who are having their children in their 30s and 40s to get together, to celebrate, share experiences, laugh and find joy in what is still the biggest life-changing experience any of us will ever go through. It's the book I looked for when I was pregnant, that spoke to me as a working parent and that I couldn't find, so I've had a go at writing one myself. Joining the parenting club in our 30s and beyond means that we are spinning an extraordinary amount of plates, often including a career at its peak. Most of us coparent or fly solo in the true sense of the word, relying solely on our partners and/or friends when, more often than not, extended family are too far away to help on a regular basis. Our parents could look to their parents for the usual guidance and extra support, but our situation is new, modern and unique. We are winging it! Read by me, Alex Jones! Featuring: Expert advice from Zita West, Clemmie Hooper, Dr Sarah Jarvis, Mother Pukka, Zoe Williams, Selfish Mother and more. Hilarious and heartwarming anecdotes plus tips and tricks from parents winging it, too. We're rewriting the rule book and winging it, but we are winging it together! Love, Alex 1. Language: English.
