CompWare is in serious trouble after a promised merger falls through, so they do what other businesses have done to bolster their public image: They hire a consulting firm to review and streamline their business practices. But there´s something strange about the firm they hire - more specifically, the quirky gentleman who arrives to supervise the project: Mr. Patoff, tall and thin, wearing a bow tie, and with an odd smile that never quite reaches his eyes. In his first interactions, the consultant asks inappropriate questions and generally seems a nuisance. Over time Patoff gains power to the point where he seems to be running the whole company. He enacts arbitrary and invasive changes to office protocol; he places cameras all over the building, causing paranoia among the workers; he calls employees at all hours of the night; and he visits some of their homes and menaces their families. People who defy the consultant get fired...or worse. The employees of CompWare soon realize they´re not just fighting for their jobs: They´re fighting for their lives. The Consultant is a biting workplace satire with the horrific touches only Bentley Little could provide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ramiz Monsef.

Dragon consultant - The FAA has been struggling with dragons attacking their planes, and hire Dane, a supernatural consultant, to look into the matter. What Dane finds in the woods is not quite the problem he expected: a group of dragon kits and their sick father. When he learns the real reason the family was in the woods, his case only grows more dangerous, and while Dane is plenty experienced at watching his own back, taking care of baby dragons and their handsome, distracting father almost makes danger look easy. Dragon deception - A life full of children and mysteries to solve doesn´t leave much time for relaxation or each other, something Lumie wants to help fix for Dane and Mercury by way of arranging a picnic. But good intentions and life rarely cooperate, and Dane knows it´s only a matter of time before all hell breaks loose. Hell turns out to be someone using Quicksilver´s name to destroy buildings, but there´s no way to tell whether the enemy is an impostor or a trap - and only one way to find out. Hopefully it won´t mean missing the picnic. Dragon dilemma - Dane doesn´t get along with his parents. He hasn´t spoken with his mother in years and he´s never met his father. Somehow his mother finds out about Mercury and the kits anyway, and it´s difficult to throw one´s mother out when she happens to be a powerful, dangerous witch. She isn´t the only uninvited guest either, and these ones are even less likely to take no for an answer - and much more likely to leave everyone dead if they don´t get what they want. 1.
