A serial attacker is locked up, and his murderous accomplice has been gunned down. But the true mastermind behind their lethal reign of terror still hasn´t been taken in or taken down, so the harrowing case of the Cornbelt Killers isn´t closed - and one murderous woman is determined to keep it that way. The only thing more important to her than evading capture is hunting down her hit list of enemies, topped by Iowa´s Division of Criminal Investigation agent Cam Prescott and forensic psychologist Sophia Channing. Faced with an opponent both quick witted and cold blooded, Cam and Sophia must scramble to keep up with this horrifying new threat. Little do they realize that in this game of cat and mouse, they´re lambs being led to the slaughter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Zane.

International attention has been drawn over the past few months to the activities of ISIS, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria. The entire world has been taken by surprise as they have witnessed the flagrant violation of all forms of human decency by these militants without their even considering the smallest fragment of human nature. It was only with impotent fury and despair that people across the globe could watch the brutal beheadings of innocent human beings by these radical Islamists. ISIS wants to bring the entire Middle East under their control, with Islamic Sharia law imposed everywhere. With this as their motive, they have been carrying out brutal attacks on their opposition. Simultaneously with their merciless and savage attacks and beheadings of their captives, they have made it a practice to release videos of every murder and every killing to the international media. Several hundred opponents have been executed by these ruthless and highly lethal terrorists. Some international journalists, aid workers, and the like have also been either beheaded by a knife or killed in a gruesome murder. This edition of Burning Reports will bring out the origin and growth of yet another terrorist organization (though they call themselves a state), namely ISIS, with roots in the volatile and petro-dollar-rich Middle East. 1.

Sean McGlynn shows that King John´s reputation for evil and incompetence is well deserved in this new biography. He lost an empire, murdered his young nephew, starved a political opponent´s wife and son to death, and ended his reign in 1216 with London and half of England under French control. Ties in with the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta this June.
Members of the liberal/left exude an air of moral certitude. They pride themselves on being committed and selfless and seem particularly confident of the purity of their motives and the evil nature of their opponents. To correct economic and social injustice, liberals support a whole litany of policies and principles: progressive taxes, affirmative action, greater regulation of corporations, raising the inheritance tax, strict environmental regulations, children´s rights, consumer rights, and more. But do they actually live by these beliefs? Peter Schweizer decided to investigate in depth the private lives of prominent liberals. What he found was a long list of contradictions. Schweizer´s conclusion is simple: liberalism in the end forces its adherents to become hypocrites. They adopt one pose in public, but when it comes to what matters most in their own lives, they jettison their liberal principles and adopt conservative ones. Schweizer´s book thus exposes the contradiction at the core of liberalism: If these ideas don´t work for the very individuals who promote them, how can they work for the country? 1.

Attorney Sam Trevisani never thought he’d play the bad guy, but now his job makes him the enemy of every dog owner in town - and whenever he meets his main opponent, Dan Bailey, the vet gives him the evil eye. Tired of playing for the wrong side, Sam has to find a solution. Maybe the tempting Dr. Bailey can help him find a solution for his restless need for change. Or maybe it’s his attraction to the vet that pushes him to pay a late-night visit. Tired of town politics and manipulative games, Dan has no interest in helping the flashy lawyer. Yet Sam´s dogged interest in him proves oddly appealing. Dan reluctantly allows the attractive lawyer into his house, and sparks fly. Sam doesn´t mind hookups, but Dan doesn´t do them - yet in one night, they both change their minds. Determined to keep Dan from running away from something promising between them, Sam has to get past his attorney uncle, Dan´s pack of misfit dogs, and a powerful but unpleasant client who could end not only the town´s chance for a dog park but any chance of romance between the lawyer and the vet.

You mean we´re truly going to play for the fate of the Universe? ´´Exactly,´´ the Overlord said, ´´a forty-one game chess match to be broadcast throughout all civilized sectors of your Universe so that everyone can witness it.´´ ´´But why chess? Why me? Why this planet?´´ ´´Because chess is ideal for such a final judgment; it is a methodical game with absolutely no element of luck, and therefore there can be no complaints by the loser. Chess is known only to your plant, and you and your opponent are the most evenly matched living players. Good against evil. No other chess players are so close in true potential abilities. There is no other reason.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Jessen. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/010824/bk_adbl_010824_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
