It's just one night. Just a surreal one night stand with a virtual stranger, a gypsy-eyed drifter with an inexplicably infectious passion for Thoreau. Yet for would-be screenwriter Greg Cannon, the fleeting encounter bears the promise of something even more elusive in this jaded town than coveted stardom. Then, in a violent instant, Harry Dawes is gone, wrists slashed, found naked in a hot tub with the body of Hollywood's hottest - and also closeted - actor. And Greg, who has lost 100 men in his time but only this one to violence, finds himself robbed of the chance to fall in love. Reeling from the loss of a man he barely knew, he sets out to uncover the truth about the apparent double suicide. Ultimately, his attempt to unravel the enigmatic public and private lives of the tragic victims and those they left behind leads him on a complex journey as remarkable and revealing as the final destination. 1.

As one of the last remaining survivors of the Great Depression and the Second World War, I will not go gently into that good night. I want to tell you what the world looks like through my eyes, so you can help change it.... In November 2013, 91-year-old Yorkshireman, RAF veteran, and ex-carpet salesman Harry Leslie Smith’s Guardian article – "This year, I will wear a poppy for the last time" – was shared almost 60,000 times on Facebook and started a huge debate about the state of society. Now he brings his unique perspective to bear on NHS cutbacks, benefits policy, political corruption, food poverty, the cost of education – and much more. From the deprivation of 1930s Barnsley and the terror of war to the creation of our welfare state, Harry has experienced how a great civilisation can rise from the rubble. But at the end of his life, he fears how easily it is being eroded. Harry’s Last Stand is a lyrical, searing modern invective that shows what the past can teach us and how the future is ours for the taking. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ric Jerrom.

Dr. Harry Stevens inherited his Uncle Henry's mansion after his passing. During the reading of Henry's Will the lawyer handed him a letter that was written by his Uncle Henry just before he was murdered. The letter stated that there is hidden treasure in the mansion that no one knows about except Henry. Dr. Stevens couldn't make out the rest of the writing because it was soaked in his Uncle's blood. Dr. Stevens took total occupancy of the mansion the following week. As Dr. Stevens was sitting at his Uncle's desk in the library at the mansion he decided that he would invite some of his so called friends over to spend the night and hunt for his Uncle Henry's hidden treasure. The doctor couldn't stand any one of them because all they cared about was money not his friendship. Dr. Stevens said, “This is a perfect idea. I'll mail out invitations to them to spend the night in the mansion which is said to be haunted and tell them whoever finds the treasure by morning will receive a $100,000 dollar reward for finding the hidden treasure.” 1.

What would you do if offered five minutes alone with the person who killed your fiancé? After a three-year search, the CIA has finally captured the head of a terrorist cell in Yemen, Ameen Asal. CIA Agent Cole Parker is offered five minutes alone with Ameen, the man who killed his fiancée. For a man trained to kill, Cole's choice is obvious. Unfortunately, life is never that simple. Cole must decide if acting on his revenge is worth the lives of three Americans. Cole travels to Yemen teamed with FBI agent Kate Simms (a former one night stand) and her partner Russell Ford. What Cole decides to do with Ameen could lead to regrets bigger than the loss of his fiancée. The events that transpire after the meeting, while shocking, are nothing compared to the revelation of not only who is helping Ameen, but why. Cole won't know to what depths of evil the person went until he gets an answer to the question, "Did Harry have a dog?" 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Formichella.

Private detective Harry McGlade is on the prowl, looking for a one-night stand. Or, in McGlade's case, a five-minute stand. When he finds a sexy lady at his local bar, he thinks he has a chance with her. But she isn't alone. There's a guy with her. A guy with a gun whom she's desperately trying to get away from. When the local mafia becomes involved with McGlade's tryst, things start going bad. Then they go really bad when a baby comes into the picture. And the only one McGlade can turn to for help is his old partner, Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels. Babe on Board is an 11,000 word novella (about 50 pages long), written by bestselling Kindle authora J.A. Konrath, and Ann Voss Peterson (FLEE, SPREE, THREE, HIT, EXPOSED, and NAUGHTY).

Ann and J.A. are confident that it will appeal to fans of mysteries, thrillers, and even romance (as long as the reader keeps tongue firmly in cheek).

Audie Award - Audiobook of the Year, 2014 Audie Award Winner, Narration by the Author or Authors, 2014 Audie Award Winner, Humor, 2014 Nominated for a 2014 Grammy in the Spoken Word category! Hilarious and heartfelt observations on aging from one of America's favorite comedians, now that he's 65, and a look back at a remarkable career. Billy Crystal is 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. In humorous chapters like ""Buying the Plot"" and ""Nodding Off,"" Crystal not only catalogues his physical gripes, but offers a road map to his 77 million fellow baby boomers who are arriving at this milestone age with him. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, and his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Listeners get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever ""test positive for Maalox""), his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion (""the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac""); grandparenting; and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived. Still Foolin' 'Em includes a portion recorded in front of a live studio audience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Billy Crystal.
