Pete Fernandez is a mess. He´s on the brink of being fired from his middle-management newspaper job. His fiancée has up and left him. Now, after the sudden death of his father, he´s back in his hometown of Miami, slowly drinking himself into oblivion. But when a coworker he barely knows asks Pete to locate a missing daughter, Pete finds himself dragged into a tale of murder, drugs, double-crosses, and memories bursting from the black heart of the Miami underworld - and, shockingly, his father´s past. Making it up as he goes and stumbling as often as he succeeds, Pete´s surreptitious quest becomes the wake-up call he´s never wanted but has always needed - but one with deadly consequences. Welcome to Silent City, a story of redemption, broken friendships, lost loves, and one man´s efforts to make peace with a long-buried past to save the lives of the few friends he has left. Silent City is a gritty, heartfelt debut novel that harkens back to classic PI tales but infused with the Miami that only Alex Segura knows. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin T. Collins.

When her husband was diagnosed with leukemia, Catherine Dornan and their two young sons accompanied him to New York, during the Christmas season, for a life-saving operation. Hoping to divert the boys from worry about their father, and to temper her own near despair, on Christmas Eve Catherine takes the boys to see Rockefeller Center´s famous Christmas tree. When they stop to listen to a street musician, Brian, the younger boy, sees a woman take his mother´s wallet, which holds a precious memento his grandmother has just given them, a St. Christopher medal that saved her husband´s life in World War II, and which she and Brian believe will save his father´s life now. Unable to get his mother´s attention, Brian impulsively follows the woman who has taken the wallet into the city´s subways, thereby beginning a journey that will threaten his life and change that of his mother and of the thief, as well. Written with warmth, yet set against a background of menace and thrilling suspense, Silent Night is about courage in the face of adversity, and faith renewed and faith rewarded.It is Mary Higgins Clark´s Christmas gift for listeners of all seasons. 1.
