She had the face of a madonna and a heart of dollar bills. "I came back and searched dizzily under the trailer, muttering the way drunks do, and then I heard it. A shuffling around inside the trailer. The little tramp had knocked me in the head with her Southern Comfort and now she was in there loading up....She didn't know I was alive." A legend among noir buffs, Chaze's long-lost pulp classic is the dreamlike tale of a man after a jailbreak who meets up with the woman of his dreams - and his nightmares. Elliott Chaze (1915 - 1990) was an old-school newspaper man who began his journalism career with the New Orleans bureau of the Associated Press shortly before Pearl Harbor. He worked for a time for AP's Denver office after paratrooper service in World War II, and then migrated south to Mississippi where he spent 20 years as a reporter and award-winning columnist. He is the author of several novels. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Malcolm Hillgartner. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/003624/bk_blak_003624_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
The final rousing adventures of Alexandre Dumas' Three Musketeers Deep inside the dreaded Bastille, a twenty-three-year-old prisoner called merely "Philippe" has languished for eight long, dark years. He does not know his real name or what crime he is supposed to have committed. But Aramis, one of the original Three Musketeers, has bribed his way into the cell to reveal the shocking secret that has kept Philippe locked away from the world.

I am admitting up front that I was a realtor for 30 years in Washington State and in Phoenix, Arizona, which will give this fictional story a ring of truth. Several of the characters and events resemble those from real life. Most of the characters and events are made up out of whole cloth. The sexy boyfriend was just for fun. My only boyfriend is the love of my life for 55 years. Our murder mystery starts off as Maye's new agent, Sarah McClanahan, discovers her clients with crossbow bolts in their bloody bodies in her new listing. Maye's sexy boyfriend, sheriff's deputy Frank Singleton, has his hands full investigating this crime and others that appear to be piling up. Meanwhile Maye West sells the deal of a lifetime: four large lake front properties surrounding a beautiful Lake Haverly in Punkin Center, Arizona. The first three sales are easy peasy. The fourth seller, James Crandall, a well-known hot head, challenges Maye's expertise. Her clients are a New York attorney Miranda Feldman and her writer husband, Joshua. While out fishing, Joshua discovers a body in their Shangri-La. It gets complicated when the coroner identifies the body as James Crandall, Maye's toughest seller. At the memorial his neighbors scatter his ashes in the lake, James shows up madder than a hornet. The coroner and Frank, humiliated by the misidentification, take refuge in The Recovery Room for a drink to commiserate. Unfortunately, one drink led to another until Maye calls upon her other agent Ed McGinley to help rescue them. They discover that managing two drunks is like herding cats. Stay tuned for more shootings and a couple of love stories, father, and son reunion, a jailbreak, and more mayhem are in store for our intrepid realtors and friends. 1. Language: English.

When western Alaska erupts in a devastating fire, the elite firefighting crew of the Jude County Smokejumpers is called in to save the day. They’ll do anything to stop the fire, including fighting alongside a crew of local prisoners. The last thing they expect is a jailbreak and when the prisoners disappear into the forest with one of their own, they’ll have to fight not only the fire, but for the freedom of their friends…during the Summer of the Burning Sky. Riley McCord is trouble, from his blue eyes to his renegade smile - a cover for the grief of losing his father three years ago in Afghanistan, a loss that is still top-secret. Riley masks it all by living large - working hard and playing hard, and that includes romancing Larke Kingston, local wilderness medic. When he’s sidelined while working the forest fire, he’s determined to rejoin his team, but to do so, he'll have to accompany Larke into the wilderness when she is dispatched to a medical emergency. What he doesn’t realize is that trouble is waiting for him in the woods....Medic Larke Kingston lost the man she loved during her service in Afghanistan and she’s not interested in a troublemaker, so Riley’s no threat to her heart. Just a short-term distraction. Until, that is, a wilderness medical mission puts her face-to-face with an escaped prisoner. Suddenly she needs Riley more than she wants to admit. Riley is shocked when the escapee claims to have answers about his father’s death. However, before he can uncover them, the fire turns and is bearing down on Larke’s ranch, and his team. Now, only Riley and Larke stand between the flames and destruction of everything they both love. But will the price of saving the ranch - and the team - be greater than they both can bear? In audiobook three, the epic Summer of the Burning Sky series comes to a blazing, shocking finale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackson Nickolay.
