In this irresistible cozy mystery from the USA Today best-selling author of The Book Club Murders, amateur sleuth Charley Carpenter fights to avenge a crime that hits far too close to home. Mulbridge House stood, silent and decaying, deep in the woods at the heart of Oakwood, Ohio, long before the passing of Augusta Mulbridge. Yet suddenly everyone in town seems to have a stake in its fate: the greedy heirs, eager to tear it down for a tidy profit; the local preservationists, determined to maintain it as an historic site; and the angry neighbors, staunchly opposed to the construction of a modern subdivision. Even Charley Carpenter is forced to admit that her beloved shop, Old Hat Vintage Fashions, could use an infusion of the estate´s treasures. The clock is ticking. The wrecking ball is ready to swing. All that stands between Mulbridge House and oblivion is one final vote. That and murder... The trouble begins when Charley walks into auctioneer Calvin Prescott´s office to find her cherished family friend crumpled on the floor. Detective Marcus Trenault quickly connects his death to a string of increasingly violent burglaries plaguing Oakwood. But when Charley uncovers a link to a massive land swindle worth millions, not to mention a drug ring operating out of the manor´s abandoned outbuildings, that theory crumbles faster than Mulbridge House. Now Charley´s racing to catch a killer before everything falls apart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dina Pearlman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/029716/bk_adbl_029716_sample.mp3.

Now their male allies, the Men of the Sisterhood, have formed a top-secret organization of their own, with the same goal of helping the helpless and righting the wrongs of the world.... When the call comes, the Men of the Sisterhood drop everything to help their friends. This time it’s Cyrus, their four-legged hound dog and unofficial mascot.

As soon as he has brought the children to safety, Espinosa arranges an urgent meeting. Charles, Abner, Jack, Dennis, Harry, and the rest of the crew gather at BOLO headquarters to hear a shocking story that confirms their worst suspicions. Many more children are still in danger.

In this tour de force, a father, shaken by tragedy, tries to avenge his daughter´s murder - and restore his family´s shattered life. It was supposed to be a typical October evening for renowned portrait artist Will Light. Over dinner of lamb tagine, his wife, Sophie, would share news about chorus rehearsals for the upcoming holiday concert, and their teenage daughter, Lucy, would chatter about French club and field hockey. Only Lucy never came home. Her body was found, days later, in the woods. The Eastern Seaboard town of Port Fortune used to be Will´s comfort. Now, there´s no safe harbor for him. Not even when Father Gervase asks Will to paint portraits of saints for the new cathedral. Using the townspeople as models, Will sees in each face only a mask of the darkness of evil. And he just might be painting his daughter´s killer. As Will navigates his rage and heartbreak, Sophie tries to move on; Father Gervase becomes an unexpected ally; and Rain, Lucy´s best friend, shrouds herself in a near-silent fugue. Their paths collide in a series of inextricably linked, dark, dangerous moments that could lead to their undoing...or to their redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Damron, Karen Peakes.

Silent, horrible as the crushing coils of a serpent were those unseen fingers that blotted out men´s lives. A criminal of satanic proportions had risen - the ´´Black Master´´, whose victims fell with livid, hideous faces and protruding tongues that seemed a ghastly mockery of the fate they had suffered. Along this terrible murder trail Secret Agent ´´X´´ gambled with the Dice of Death. His true face unknown, his identity forever buried in a secret government file, Secret Agent ´´X´´ came back from the dead to take on the sinister sadists and evil extortionists who prey on innocent Americans. A master of disguise who carries a non-lethal gas gun, ´´X´´ the unknown is backed by a cabal of wealthy citizens and is answerable only to the shadowy K-9 in Washington. In his second recorded case, ´´The Spectral Strangler´´, the Man of Mystery is drawn into a chain of horror when his mentor from their Federal days, Bill Scanlon, is slain by a ghostly, disembodied strangler. How does this grisly crime connect with the disappearance of a chemist working for the Army´s Chemical Warfare branch? What was Scanlon investigating that motived his killer to snuff out his life? The trail of purpled-faced corpses points toward a shadowy mastermind known only as the Black Master. Through webs of horror ´´X´´ plunges, aided by Herald reporter Betty Dale and dogged every step of the way by Inspector John Burks, seeking to solve the wave of inexplicable deaths and avenge the slaying of his old friend. But does an invisible noose hang waiting at the end of the trail, to seize his naked throat in its gallows grip? ´´The Spectral Strangler´´ originally appeared in Secret Agent ´´X´´ magazine, in March 1934, and is read by Milton Bagby. 1.

A lady imprisoned by deafness, an architect imprisoned by his past, and a ghost imprisoned within the petals of a flower intertwine in this love story that transcends life and death. For most of her life, Juliet Emerline has subsisted, isolated by deafness, making hats in the solitude of her home. Now she´s at risk of losing her sanctuary to Lord Nicolas Thornton, a mysterious and eccentric architect with designs on her humble estate. When she secretly witnesses him raging beside a grave, Juliet investigates, finding the name ´´Hawk´´ on the headstone and an unusual flower at the base. The moment Juliet touches the petals, a young English nobleman appears in ghostly form, singing a song only her deaf ears can hear. The ghost remembers nothing of his identity or death other than the one name that haunts his afterlife: Thornton. To avenge her ghostly companion and save her estate, Juliet pushes aside her fear of society and travels to Lord Thornton´s secluded holiday resort, posing as a hatmaker in one of his boutiques. There she finds herself questioning who to trust: the architect of flesh and bones who can relate to her through romantic gestures, heartfelt notes, and sensual touches...or the specter who serenades her with beautiful songs and ardent words, touching her mind and soul like no other man ever can. As sinister truths behind Lord Thornton´s interest in her estate and his tie to Hawk come to light, Juliet is lured into a web of secrets. But it´s too late for escape, and the tragic love taking seed in her heart will alter her silent world forever. International and NYT best-selling author A. G.
