Murder, scandal, political espionage, and an extremely dangerous woman. Lucas Davenport’s going to be lucky to get out of this one alive.... Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, ´´Hey, I think he’s breathing.´´ And another voice says, ´´Yeah? Give me the bat.´´ And that’s the last thing he knows. Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man’s disappearance, then - very troublingly - to the Minneapolis police department, then - most troublingly of all - to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons. She has very definite ideas about the way the world should work, and the money, ruthlessness, and sheer will to make it happen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Ferrone.

Duchlan Castle is a gloomy place in the Scottish Highlands. Late one night the body of Mary Gregor, sister of the laird, is found in the castle. She has been stabbed to death in her locked bedroom. The only tiny clue to the culprit is a silver fish´s scale, left on the floor next to Mary´s body. Inspector Dundas is dispatched to investigate. The Gregor family and their servants are quick to explain that Mary was a kind and charitable woman, but Dundas uncovers a more complex truth. Soon further deaths occur. Superstitious locals believe that fish creatures from the nearby waters are responsible, but luckily for Inspector Dundas, gifted amateur sleuth Eustace Hailey is on the scene. 1. Language: English.

You´re walking across the parking lot in a hurry to get to your car. You see a shiny coin on the ground. Do you stop to pick it up or leave it? If you´re superstitious, most likely the little voice inside of you will insist you pick it up. If you are in a hurry, but you know every penny counts, you will probably stop to pick it up. If you think it makes no difference whether you do or you don´t, or you think you don´t have time to pick it up, or you think, "It´s just a coin..." and pass it by. Think again. If you´re leaving money on the floor or not taking notice of your own money, chances are your relationship with money is strained. Do you have money, but never have enough? Do you constantly find yourself wondering where your next dollar is going to come from? Do you want to be able to tap into an abundant world where you never have to worry about money again? Money Blues to Blue Money is not your typical self-help, how-to, step-by-step workbook listening. This is a story that revolves around the author´s own personal experience from struggling financially to financial independence and how she discovered the equation of money. She shares her lessons, her "ah ha" moments, her revelations, and most importantly her practices for tuning into an everlasting connection with money. Dr. Ming Chee has coached countless people in creating their own abundance. She has participated in webinars, group chats, public presentations, and retreats. She is continuously connected to the energy of money and she loves teaching people how to obtain the same connection and attain a wealth mindset. Dr. Ming Chee changed her relationship with money and believes everyone has the power within themselves to do the same. This book will discuss how to remove money blocks, unkink your money vibe, and save yourself from the money gremlins who are constantly keeping you away from money. 1. Language: English. Narrator: C.

When Hollywood star Dorothy Dacres plummets six floors from her hotel terrace on the night of her greatest triumph, it initially looks like a tragic accident. But her death is so very convenient to her many enemies that press-man Freddy Pilkington-Soames, who was there on the night she died, begins to suspect foul play. And when cocaine is found in her room, it only complicates matters further. Soon, Freddy is chasing across London on the trail of drug dealers, in reluctant company with his deadly rival, Corky Beckwith, the most unscrupulous reporter in Fleet Street, who will do anything for a story. With the future of a film studio at stake, can Freddy find the culprit - and get one up on Corky - before he becomes the killer´s next victim? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gethyn Edwards.

It´s everyone´s worst nightmare. You´re alone at a party, looking into a crowded living room, when you catch the eye of a particularly attractive individual next to the potted ficus. Smiles are exchanged, the floor is crossed. Now is the moment for that crucial first impression. "Hi." "Hi there." Gotta do better than that. Conversation. Small yet engaging talk. Come on, come on...Wait, what´s this? Have I seen the Mondrian exhibit? The who? You found it what? Did you just say "ebullient in its oppressive geometric inertia?" What the heck does that mean? Oh my God. I have to say something now. "Um...Gee; guess I missed out." Well, you don´t have to miss out. Let´s face it, art and literature are broad subjects, but Living Language A Shortcut to Art and Literature can get you started. This entertaining, irreverent, and funny program will help you reclaim vague memories of people, paintings, and periods; take part in conversations instead of just nodding and smiling; figure out who and what you´d like to know more about; and toss around references to Mondrian, Melville, and Monet. 1.

In order to perform it properly it is necessary to have a lot of room on the dance floor — something that is hard to come by in these days of crowded ballrooms. The stance for the Slow Foxtrot is — as in the other so-called ´´English´´ dances, the Waltz and the Quickstep — erect with the shoulders completely relaxed. The main characteristic of Slow Foxtrot music is the fluidity that ´´carries´´ the dancers so that their steps flow effortlessly and one figure merges into the next without any rough edges. SLOW FOXTROT This Long Play Microgroove Record can be played only on 45 RPM instruments with a cartridge with microsaphire which puts a pressure of about 8-10 grammes on the record or with a special stereo cartridge of 5-6 grammes. — Printed in Germany —
An ex-Wall Street trader improved on Moneyball’s famed sabermetrics to place bets that would beat the Vegas odds on Major League Baseball games - with a 41 percent return in his first year. Trading Bases explains how he did it. After the fall of Lehman Brothers, Joe Peta was out of a job. He found a new one but lost that, too, when an ambulance mowed him down. In search of a way to cheer himself up while he recuperated in a wheelchair, Peta started watching baseball again, as he had growing up. That’s when inspiration hit: Why not apply his outstanding risk-analysis skills to improve on sabermetrics, the method made famous by Moneyball - and beat the only market in town, the Vegas betting line? Why not treat MLB like the S&P 500? In Trading Bases, Peta shows how to subtract luck - in particular ´´cluster luck´´, as he puts it - from a team’s statistics to best predict how it will perform in the next game and over the whole season. His baseball ´´hedge fund´´ returned an astounding 41 percent in 2011 - and has never been down more than 5 percent. Peta takes listeners to the ballpark in San Francisco, trading floors and baseball bars in New York, and sports books in Vegas, all while tracing the progress of his wagers. Often humorous, occasionally touching, and with a wink toward the sheer implausibility of the whole project, Trading Bases is all about the love of critical reasoning, trading cultures, risk management, and baseball. And not necessarily in that order.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

An ode to ´´Put the Damn Guns Down´´, this is National Book Award finalist and New York Times best seller Jason Reynolds´ fiercely stunning novel that takes place in 60 potent seconds - the time it takes a kid to decide whether or not he´s going to murder the guy who killed his brother. A cannon. A strap. A piece. A biscuit. A burner. A heater. A chopper. A gat. A hammer A tool for RULE. Or, you can call it a gun. That´s what 15-year-old Will has shoved in the back waistband of his jeans. See, his brother Shawn was just murdered. And Will knows the rules. No crying. No snitching. Revenge. That´s where Will´s now heading, with that gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, the gun that was his brother´s gun. He gets on the elevator, seventh floor, stoked. He knows who he´s after. Or does he? As the elevator stops on the sixth floor, on comes Buck. Buck, Will finds out, is who gave Shawn the gun before Will took the gun. Buck tells Will to check that the gun is even loaded. And that´s when Will sees that one bullet is missing. And the only one who could have fired Shawn´s gun was Shawn. Huh. Will didn´t know that Shawn had ever actually used his gun. Bigger huh. Buck is dead. But Buck´s in the elevator? Just as Will´s trying to think this through, the door to the next floor opens. A teenage girl gets on, waves away the smoke from Dead Buck´s cigarette. Will doesn´t know her, but she knew him. Knew. When they were eight. And stray bullets had cut through the playground, and Will had tried to cover her, but she was hit anyway, and so what she wants to know, on that fifth floor elevator stop, is, what if Will, Will with the gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, misses. And so it goes, the whole long way down, as the elevator stops on each floor, and at each stop someone connected to his brother gets on to give Will a piece to a bigger story than the one he thi... 1.
