When Kate Reilly arrives in Long Beach, California, a week ahead of the Grand Prix, she is immediately plunged into a new social scene - as well as a murder investigation. Her cousin, Billy, is found dead, with Kate´s card in his pocket. The cops want to know why, and sponsors and race organizers - anxious to keep racing´s image clean - want Kate to investigate. Doubting she can solve another murder, especially that of a relative she despised, Kate reluctantly agrees. At the same time, coaching a gorgeous and talented actress for a celebrity race brings Kate into the orbit of Hollywood´s hottest bachelor. And then a local FBI agent takes notice of more than her driving and sleuthing skills. She goes from Sony Studios to Venice Beach and from Rodeo Drive to the Hollywood Hills, attending parties, power shopping, and dodging unwelcome paparazzi. Kate´s ballooning media exposure generates national commentary, testing her composure and forcing her to get ahead of the stories - whether critical or flattering. Kate´s professional dreams are also coming true. The upcoming Grand Prix is her first race with a new sponsor that is also funding an IndyCar test drive and a ride in next year´s Indy 500 - along with future possibilities in NASCAR. The downside? New sponsor Frame Savings is owned by her family, and its management, outside of her long-estranged father, is unfriendly to her - even rivalrous. Kate must stay on her toes as the Long Beach race weekend begins. She´s negotiating the next steps in her career, driving two race cars and coaching a third, discovering more about the disreputable members of her father´s family than she wanted to know, and juggling questions and murder suspects. On the track, red flags fly to warn her of danger. Off track, Kate struggles to interpret warning signs and stay out of a killer´s grasp. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicole Vilencia.

Do you remember the dime stores of the 60s? Did you ever shop at G.C. Murphy´s, Woolworth´s, or Newberry´s? Discount department stores became very popular in the 70s and dime stores began to close. Stores like Kmart, Grant City, Murphy´s Mart, Hills, and Ames provided a great shopping experience for American families. Most of those chains closed their doors in the 80s and 90s. The glory days of department store shopping have faded away and we now live in a big box world. I always loved shopping in downtown Defiance, Ohio when I was growing up in the 60s. My favorite store was G.C. Murphy´s. The day I celebrated my 16th birthday, I applied for a job at Murphy´s. I was hired a few weeks later. After living in North Dakota for four years as a young Air Force wife, I moved back to Ohio. Retail was still in my blood. I always thought I would go back to work at Murphy´s someday. By this time, most of the Murphy´s stores had closed and new Murphy´s Marts were built to replace the smaller dime stores. We lived very close to Kmart in Bryan. The store was just a short walk across the field near our house. I applied for a job at Kmart and was soon hired, since I had previous retail experience at Murphy´s. I worked at Kmart for a total of 17 years. Did you ever wonder what it was like to work in one of these stores? How difficult was it to operate a manual cash register before bar codes and scanners made the task much easier? Listen about Halloween costume contests, shoplifting stories, and bluelight specials. Follow the adventures of six family members who all worked at the same store. If you have ever worked in retail, or dreamed of a career in retail, then this is the audiobook for you! 1.

"A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn´t let go." -Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone) From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense. In A Trace of Murder (Book #2 in the Keri Locke mystery series), Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, remains haunted by the abduction of her own daughter. Encouraged by the new lead that has landed, the first in years, she pursues it with all that she has, determined to find her daughter and bring her back alive. Yet Keri, at the same time, receives a phone call from a frantic husband, a famed Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, who reports that his wife has been missing for two days. A wealthy socialite with no enemies and little reason to leave her life, he fears the worst has become of his wife. Keri takes on the case, assigned a new partner whom she hates, as Ray still recovers in the hospital. Her investigation leads her deep into the elite Beverly Hills world of the idle rich, to encounters with lonely housewives, and those with shopping-addicted, empty lives. Keri, in over her head in this world, becomes increasingly puzzled by the conflicting signals: did this woman, with a stalker and a lurid, secret past, run away, or was she abducted? Or did something far more sinister happen? A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, A Trace of Murder is book #2 in a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. "A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success.

Jed Morble´s world is entirely covered by enormous skyscrapers that are tens of miles tall and extend miles beneath the surface. There´s not a bare spot of ground that isn´t covered with blacktop or occupied by one of these ´´megascrapers´´. Hundreds of billions of people spend their lives entirely within these monsters of technology, living, working, shopping, relaxing...Rare is the individual who ventures onto the roofs or even crosses over to the next building. The concept of ´´outside´´, of green hills and vast natural countryside, has been all but forgotten because it´s all been paved over or built upon. These millions of megascrapers comprise one vast, endless city. The Big City. Jed, a big city man, is weary of the endless rush of civilization. Weaned on fabulous tales of the Great Outdoors told to him by his long-dead grandmother, he longs for the outside, but knows he´ll never find it. So he trudges despondently through his pointless existence, until one day, he happens upon a document that points the way to a door that leads to another world - of green hills and vast natural countrysides. The only problem is, the door is deep in the heart of a bombed-out section of the city that now serves as a prison for the dregs of society. Jed decides to make the attempt. His journey will lead him through criminal territory and into a vast, unspoiled new world, where he´ll clash with aliens who once decimated the Earth and will ultimately learn a shocking secret about the new world he plans to call home. 1.

Here is a brand new second edition that has been fully updated. The author is a long-time resident of Budapest, who knows the region intimately and takes us behind the scenes to discover its best features the sights, the places to stay and eat, the shopping, and all the activities. Millions of people every year hike into, bike, drive, or climb into the green valleys and limestone mountain ridges of Hungary s national parks and the hills. Storks, eagles, wrens, blackbirds, woodpeckers, and flocks of thousands make their home in forests, grasslands, and cliff-sides. Majestic antlered stags and deer range the forest. Fresh springs and cold clear creeks tumble down from the mountains. The author takes us there. There are thousands of restaurants and virtually every type of cuisine. Hotels and nightspots are just as numerous and the author guides us to the best of them all. As you walk through the Budapest, you will find literally thousands of statues and monuments. Rose-tinted sunsets and shadowed romance reflect on the Danube, mirroring this city, which has been called the Paris of Eastern Europe and The Pearl of the Danube. The home of two million of the nation´s 10 million people, it is the center of Hungary´s culture, science, industry, and government. There are three basic areas: Buda (including Gellert Hill and Castle Hill), Pest (including District 5 - also known as the Belvaros, and City Park), and Obuda (the largest Roman ruins outside of Rome). Before Christ, fearsome Celts occupied Gellert Hill, the central mountain whose mammoth like shoulders rise from the Danube shore to dominate Buda (site of the imposing Citadel, Freedom Statue, Gellert Statue, lookout points, winding paths, and bathhouses). Late in the first century AD the Romans marched in to establish Aquincum, the capital of the province of Pannonia. North of Gellert Hill, in what is today Obuda, it is the site of extensive Roman ruins. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adrienne Ellis.
