Last seen in 1997's Flesh & Bones, Jake Lassiter is a hero unlike any other in the courtroom. Booklist called him "one of the most entertaining series characters in contemporary crime fiction." The former Miami Dolphin is still swimming with sharks in his latest, boldest novel of suspense yet. Amy Larkin is in town, looking for her sister Krista, who vanished without a trace almost two decades earlier. She seeks out Lassiter because he's the last person to have seen her alive. Lassiter volunteers to investigate, and his search for Krista's fate will take him into the underworld of Miami's pornography industry, into the dangerous lives of his friends, and, of course, into the courtroom, where Lassiter's bareknuckle style makes him a formidable opponent. 1.

From the beat generation and counterculture author William S. Burroughs comes the second novel of the Red Night trilogy, available in audio for the first time. This surreal fable, set in America's Old West, features a cast of notorious characters: the Crying Gun, who breaks into tears at the sight of his opponent; the Priest, who goes into gunfights giving his adversaries the last rites; and the Nihilistic Kid himself, Kim Carsons, a homosexual gunslinger who, with a succession of beautiful sidekicks, sets out to challenge the morality of small-town America and fight for intergalactic freedom. Fantastical and humorous, The Place of Dead Roads continues Burroughs' exploration of society's controlling forces - the state, the church, women, literature, drugs - with a style that is utterly unique in 20th-century literature. 1.

The Saint is back – 50 audiobooks are now available starring the debonair classic crime hero. These three stories of Saintly adventure show Simon Templar interpreting the law to his own advantage. In 'The Simon Templar Foundation', a poisonous legacy from his enemy Rayt Marius gives him the opportunity to make a great deal of money - if he can survive equally great danger. 'The Higher Finance' puts him up against the police, a reclusive millionaire, and the wild beast that roams his mansion at night. And in 'The Art of Alibi', he faces the most impudent opponent of all: someone who is stealing his symbol, and committing crimes in his name. Leslie Charteris was born in Singapore and moved to England in 1919. He left Cambridge University early when his first novel was accepted for publication. He wrote novels about the Saint throughout his life, becoming one of the 20th century's most prolific and popular authors. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Telfer.

Ryder "Playboy" King is what everyone calls me, in and out of the octagon. I'm fine with being known as a Playboy. I've turned it into an art form. A big smile, charm, and a little flattery - and my needs are easily met. Besides, giving a shit can get a man hurt - I'd rather get in and out in one piece. Enter Tessa Jameson. One fiery lust filled moment with her is not enough. If anything, it leaves me wanting more, but she's not interested. Me? I know I've met my match - I want more. She thinks men only want sex. I'm determined to prove her wrong. But it isn't easy. The closer I get, the more I want. Lust, is the act of taking. Love, is the act of giving. Can I continue to give and not take? Can two bruised people long committed to a lust-filled life be willing to change - to love? Will lust just be another beatable opponent? I think so. Until I'm knocked to my knees with a blow I never see coming. This book is a standalone novel in the Deadly Sins Series - but listening to them together does add more to the story. Warning: This novel touches on themes of abuse and suicide that may be deemed triggers to some listeners. Intended for listeners 18 and over. 1. Language: English.

The Saint is back – 50 audiobooks are now available starring the debonair classic crime hero. Simon Templar is the Saint - daring, dazzling, and just a little disreputable. On the side of the law, but standing outside it, he dispenses his own brand of justice one criminal at a time. In these three stories, the Saint finds himself embroiled in further plots and facing new enemies. The Inland Revenue sees him up against the most unyielding opponent ever - the taxman. In The Million Pound Scandal, a good deed leads Simon to uncover a plot to undermine the Italian economy, and in The Melancholy Journey of Mr Teal the Saint's retirement plans are scuppered when a couple of murderous diamond smugglers object to his scheme of taking their loot for his pension. Leslie Charteris was born in Singapore and moved to England in 1919. He left Cambridge University early when his first novel was accepted for publication.

Award-winning author Chuck Greaves returns with the rollicking sequel to his acclaimed debut novel, Hush Money. US Senate candidate Warren Burkett has a history of marital infidelity. Three weeks before election day, Burkett comes to the aid of a beautiful green-eyed lady, only to find himself alone and naked in a stranger’s home from which a priceless painting is missing. As the resulting scandal threatens to tilt the election, the painting turns up in a most unexpected place - and so does a dead body. Hired to defend Burkett and unravel the deepening mystery, Jack MacTaggert must traverse a minefield of ruthless politicians, felonious art dealers, swarming paparazzi, the amorous wife of Burkett’s billionaire opponent, her mobbed-up brother, and a district attorney with an old score to settle. With the electoral clock ticking and the press following his every move, Jack’s investigation leads him on a roller-coaster ride through the lofty heights and gritty depths of Southern California, lending new meaning to the adage that all’s fair in love and politics. 1.
