In Silent Night, America´s most beloved writer of suspense has crafted a very special story about the power of love, and of a child´s courage and faith. 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.

On a cold December morning in New York City, a man is found dead in Central Park. There are no knife or gunshot wounds to his body and no signs of violence. But beside the body is a box containing a cracked vial. Suspecting he died from some sort of biological attack, a lab team screen the body. What they find is deeply unsettling and terrifying. Seven months after he left the ARU, Sam Archer is now a third-grade detective in the NYPD´s Counterterrorism Bureau. However, not everything has gone as expected. Most of his new squad have welcomed him. Others haven´t. But when he and the rest of his team are called in urgently and told of the situation, all personal differences need to be put aside. It´s been confirmed the man in Central Park was killed by an unknown strain of a toxic pneumonic virus. Once inhaled, there is no chance of survival. The victim dies quickly, violently, and in agonizing pain. There is no antidote. No one knows where it has come from, who planted it in the park, and why. No ransom demands or threats have been received. Archer and his team are ordered to find out who was responsible and to locate and secure any other strains of the virus that may exist. However, they are already almost out of time. Someone is intending to release more of the virus into the city within the next 90 minutes. As they desperately search for answers, Archer and the rest of his team quickly discover that the cracked vial in the park was just the start. They are also not alone in wanting to get their hands on the virus. There are others - people with far more sinister motives who are desperate to acquire the virus and who will kill anyone who gets in their way. As people around him start going down, Archer must battle to stay one step ahead in the race to find the toxic weapon before it is used again. When he and his team finally realize the full horrifying extent of what they´re dealing with and the potentially devastating effects ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Sackville.

The colored lights on the snow gave it a holiday appearance, but the dead woman´s body in the yard added a grisly touch. How did Ina Bell Patrick die? Who killed her? And why? The dead woman had no direct heirs, so two nephews and a niece stood to inherit. Dr. Laura Morris was left to make all the arrangements, attorney Roger Morris could certainly use the money, and Zack Morris had disappeared two years earlier. Then there was neighbor and ´´best friend´´ Fay Autrey, who was certain the woman intended to leave her some money - a great deal of money. The police were still looking for the killer who left the frozen body in the snow when it became apparent someone was trying to pick off the heirs, one by one. Who would win the race - the police or the killer? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Meghan Kelly. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/070819/bk_acx0_070819_sample.mp3.

But it’s not a simple case of intimidation - Spenser, aided by Hawk, finds a trail that leads to a dangerous drug kingpin, whose hold on the at-risk community Street Business serves threatens not just the boys’ safety and security, but their lives as well.
