Despite living in the same three-flat house in the suburbs of London, the residents are strangers to one another. The bottom floor is home to Tam, a recent ex-cop who spends his days drowning his sorrows in whisky. On the middle floor is Nick, a young man with Asperger´s who likes to stick to his schedules and routines. The top floor belongs to Karen, a doctor and researcher who has spent her life trying to understand the rising rates of autism. They have lived their lives separately until now, when an unsolved murder and the man on the middle floor connect them all together. Told from three points of view, The Man on the Middle Floor is about disconnection in all its forms: sexual, physical, parental and emotional. It questions whether society is meeting the needs of the fast-growing autistic section of society or exacerbating it. Thought-provoking and thrilling, The Man on the Middle Floor will leave listeners talking. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Jameson.

She waits for him in the dark, her mind and body perfect, passive, until one day, when he goes to the cellar, and she is gone. In A Demon in My View, Ruth Rendell creates a character as frightening as he is fascinating. Mild-mannered Arthur Johnson has never known how to talk to women. And his loneliness has perverted his desire for love and respect into a carefully controlled penchant for violence. One floor below him, a scholar finishing his thesis on psychopathic personalities is about to stumble - quite literally - upon one of Arthur´s many secrets. Haunting and intelligent, A Demon in My View shows the startling results of this chilling alchemy of two very disparate minds - one pathological and the other obsessed with pathology. 1.
