The silent rush of footsteps, the muffled shriek, the ever-tightening noose of exotic silk…the mark of the Cat. The Cat had claimed number nine. The Cat had nine kills, but Ellery Queen found number ten alive and offered the victim temptingly to the killer. The trap was baited, and Ellery and the police poised for the strike that had to come. But the strangler struck elsewhere - and Queen´s heart chilled at the thought of what he would find. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Fass.

The amazing story of one man´s obsession with an enigmatic and deadly reptile. Raymond Ditmars (1876-1942), the first curator of reptiles at New York´s famous Bronx Zoo, brought cold-blooded animals to public attention as never before. Through wildly successful books and movies, he inspired a generation of zoologists with his fascination for snakes, insects, and other misunderstood creatures. Ditmars was among the most celebrated naturalists in America. His reptile-collecting trips for the zoo spawned newspaper headlines across the world. Although a serpent lover, he was all too aware of the devastating effects of snakebites and was instrumental in the development of antivenin. His films and writings brought him fame, but he remained a devoted zoo employee, doing what he loved most: caring for animals. Bushmaster tells the story of this remarkable man and what became an obsession with the mysterious bushmaster of the South American rainforest. Measuring up to 13 feet in length, this is the world´s largest viper, and its scientific name, Lachesis muta, translates as ´´silent fate.´´ Despite numerous expeditions to jungles from Honduras to Brazil, Ditmars could never capture a bushmaster for himself. Now, British author Dan Eatherley follows in Ditmars´s footsteps, revisiting his early haunts in the United States and South America. He attempts to do what Ditmars himself failed to achieve: to find a bushmaster in the wild. But 80 years later, will Dan have any more luck? Through the author´s own quest, Bushmaster reveals the life of a pioneer herpetologist, wildlife filmmaker, and zoo curator. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin T. Collins.

In a world where every word and gesture is copyrighted, patented, or trademarked, one girl elects to remain silent rather than pay to speak, and her defiant and unexpected silence threatens to unravel the very fabric of society. Speth Jime is anxious to deliver her Last Day speech and celebrate her transition into adulthood. The moment she turns 15, Speth must pay for every word she speaks (´´sorry´´ is a flat $10 and a legal admission of guilt), for every nod ($0.99/sec), for every scream ($0.99/sec), and even every gesture of affection. She´s been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt and can´t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she´s unable to afford. But when Speth´s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family´s crippling debt, she can´t express her shock and dismay without breaking her Last Day contract and sending her family into Collection. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: Rather than read her speech - rather than say anything at all - she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again. Speth´s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family, and the entire city around them. 1.

Every individual tends to stumble upon the blockages of his or her mind when it comes to finding his or her purpose of life. The mind intervenes and creates an illusion of thoughts and security around certain belief structures and conditionings. This audiobook breaks the realms of the mind and goes a step further, making a clear connection with a person´s heart and the mind by answering not only the question itself, but also making one face the source from where the question initially arose. Once the mind and heart are at peace, the world surrounding a person shows the true nature that indeed is paradise. All questions will disappear, thus leading an individual to experience life as it is. Many books have been written on the subject, and they tend to be a good read, but they miss the potential to actually make an individual realize life was not intended to follow behind the footsteps of others, and neither does life reside in leading a group. Books on spirituality achieve a type of entertainment for the mind and numb it, but the key is missing in making the connective bridge between the heart and the mind. In today´s world, each and every individual needs to find the inner connection in self and start a new generation of self-evolved beings for the stage the world resides in today. The very foundation of life is shaken by the ideas of the mind. Most books propose to forget the mind and be silent; to just meditate thoughts away, shutting the mind down. This audiobook paves a path from the mind to the heart and creates a deeper understanding that one cannot just shut the mind out, but one can live in harmony by connecting the heart with the mind. This audiobook is voiced in easily understood language, making it easy to listen to, without big words and terms for individuals to get lost in. It is more of a conversation within the mind and the heart, thus opening new realizations toward life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shiv.
