´I charge you, Sir Alan Dale, with administering my death. At the end of the game, I would rather die by your hand than any other.´ England rebels. War rages across the land. In the wake of Magna Carta, King John´s treachery is revealed, and the barons rise against him once more. Fighting with them is the Earl of Locksley - the former outlaw Robin Hood - and his right-hand man, Sir Alan Dale. France invades. When the French enter the fray, with the cruel White Count leading the charge, Robin and Alan must decide where their loyalties lie: with those who would destroy the king and seize his realm or with the beloved land of their birth. A hero lives forever. Fate is inexorable, and Death waits for us all. Or does it? Can Robin Hood pull off his greatest ever trick and cheat the Grim Reaper one last time just as England needs him most? The climactic episode of The Outlaw Chronicles is the most explosive yet - but who will survive and who will fall when the final reckoning comes? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Rogers.

Death was and will be a mystery. The transfer of the soul to the Other World is still a mystery, even a sacrament. Even the ancient Greeks represented his journey with the carrier Charon: a gloomy old man in rags. It was thanks to this view that Grim Reaper - the Grim Reaper appeared to the Europeans: a skeleton in a raincoat with a hood, which became the embodiment of the inevitable, irresistible, unstoppable. Or not? Maybe there is a way to negotiate? Cheat? To bribe? Tell him a fairy tale to leave alone?

Lucky O’Toole, the newly promoted vice president of customer relations for the Babylon, Las Vegas’s primo strip property, has never met a problem she couldn’t handle. But when a young woman is found dead, sprawled across the hood of a new, bright-red Ferrari California in the Babylon’s on-site dealership, a Jimmy Choo stiletto stuck in her carotid, Lucky’s skills are maxed out. Of course her life is already on overload. Her mother, Mona, is pregnant, hormonal, and bored - a triple threat. A song that Teddie, Lucky’s former lover, wrote for her is getting national airplay as he hits the talk shows, pleading for her forgiveness. Lucky is less than amused by the high-powered ´´infotainment´´ spotlight on her personal life. She’s having enough trouble fending off Chef Jean-Charles Bouclet, the Babylon’s tasty new dish. All of this and The Smack-Down Poker tournament, the second-largest poker tournament in the world, is holding its final round at the Babylon. Hookers, thieves, players, cheaters, media, and hangers-on descend, looking to win or to score. When one of the players turns up dead, Lucky starts to make connections between the two murders, putting her in the crosshairs of the killer. After a revelation by someone close to her sends her world reeling even further, Lucky struggles to keep her life in balance, and a murderer from killing again as bodies pile up. Then, just when she’s losing control…life deals another major complication to her personal life…and it’s not going to be pretty. Lucky struggles to keep her life in balance, and a murderer from killing again as bodies pile up. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Renee Raudman.
