Smokejumper Conner Young can´t wait to marry the woman who´s stood by him for three years as he fought fires in the forests of the northwest. The only wound in the weekend is the lack of his best man - a brother whose murder is still unsolved. It´s unfinished business that haunts him, keeping him from truly moving on. Liza Beaumont, long time Deep Haven artist is a survivor of a brutal grizzly attack. Struggling with nightmares, she´s not sure she´s ready to join Conner´s world. He´s a hero, yes, but his life is rife with danger and stress and frankly she´s not sure she has the courage to be the wife of a man who may not come home again. When Liza´s wedding invitation unearths a witness in his brother´s murder, Conner´s hope of solving the case is reignited. Suddenly, it´s a choice between showing up to help Liza knit together their perfect day - or tracking down his brother´s killer. But when his investigation finds its way to Deep Haven, and Liza´s life is threatened, there may not be a wedding at all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackson Nickolay.

Good girls don´t steal. Good girls don´t visit sex shops. Good girls don´t have one-night stands. For Katie Conners, being a good girl just isn´t worth it anymore. It used to mean getting the life she always wanted. But that was before she got dumped and her ex got engaged to his rebound. So, after a bad day and one too many mojitos, Katie starts making a list of things a girl like her would never do, not in a million years.... As a tattoo artist with a monster motorcycle, Chase Trepasso isn´t the kind of guy you bring home to Mom and Dad. And when he finds Katie´s list in a bar, he´s more than happy to help her check off a few items. Especially the ones on the naughtier side.... Katie´s more than tempted by Chase´s offer, as long as they keep things uncomplicated. But as they spend more time together, she may just wind up breaking the most important rule of all: good girls don´t fall in love with bad boys. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nina Alvamar.

In the Jericho Black series Will Hessler goes up against neo-Nazis, radical jihadists, East German assassins, and even the KGB, but how did he get his start? How did a starving artist from San Francisco become Israel´s most lethal deep-cover operative? It all starts with Book One: Among Wolves. Growing up in 1970s San Francisco as a young artist, Will finds himself at odds with his Nazi war-criminal grandfather and radical jihadist mother. After Will´s mother spearheads a terrorist attack in San Francisco, the boy must decide if he is going to turn a blind eye, or take part in an operation that can only end with the destruction of his own family. As the conflict within the family unit comes to a boil, Nazi hunter and Mossad spymaster Saul Greenbaum steps out of the shadows to recruit Will Hessler, and forge him into the agent that Mossad needs to defend the homeland. Can Will grow up fast enough to survive a clash with a PLO splinter group that has already buried far more seasoned operatives? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Conner Goff.

Every mother´s worst fear became Sharon Rocha´s reality. On Christmas Eve 2002, she received a phone call from her son-in-law saying that her daughter, Laci, was missing. In the hours, days, and eventually months that followed, Sharon struggled to avoid accepting what no parent should ever have to face: the certain knowledge that her child is never coming home. In For Laci, for the first time, Sharon tells us what it was like to live through the long nightmare and opens our hearts to the Laci she loved: the kindergarten artist, the 10th grader who cried on her mother´s lap after her first breakup, the young woman who planned her wedding with joyful enthusiasm. At the time of her disappearance, Laci was 27 years old, seven and a half months pregnant, and a vibrant presence in the lives of everyone who knew her. How, Sharon wondered, could Laci so suddenly become a missing person? That very word missing seemed premature, somehow suspect. From that first moment, Sharon knew with a mother´s instinct that something, beyond the alarming news itself, was terribly wrong. As the world now knows, she was right. Nearly two years after that night, a jury in the State of California found Scott Peterson guilty of the murder of his wife and their unborn son, Conner. Until now, the world has not had an answer to a question that held countless millions in its grip. Through all the relentless media coverage of this unspeakable crime and subsequent trial, we all wondered: What would it be like to experience such a horror involving your own child and grandchild? What, indeed, was Sharon Rocha feeling? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Staci Snell. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bkot/000652/bk_bkot_000652_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
