The first book in a cozy series by an Edgar Winner A rollicking tale of murder, romance, and a bordello…. Rebecca Schwartz, nice Jewish lawyer with a few too many fantasies, is happily playing the piano in a whorehouse when she suddenly finds herself assigned to make sure a near-naked state senator escapes a police raid. That dirty job done, a lovely evening turns even more delightful when she´s picked up by the cops and spends the next two hours at the Hall of Justice. Could this day get any worse? Of course! Guess who arrives home to find a dead hooker on her living room floor? Handsome Parker Phillips, Rebecca´s new beau and the most attractive man she´s met in ages, is arrested for the murder. (Worse, she suspects he might actually have done it.) On the plus side, another very attractive man is following the case - reporter Rob Burns of the San Francisco Chronicle, a possible ally. And there are other possibilities. Fans of Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Bond, and Elizabeth Peters will get a kick out of this one. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nan McNamara.

Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help envision the US economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy - such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; and Andy Grove of Intel. Through these stories, we come to a stark and deeper understanding of the toll technological progress will continue to take on jobs and income and its inevitable effect on tens of millions of people. But there is hope for our economy and future. The foundation of economic prosperity for all Americans, Stern believes, is a universal basic income. The idea of a universal basic income for all Americans is controversial, but American attitudes are shifting. Stern has been a game changer throughout his career, and his next goal is to create a movement that will force the political establishment to take action against something that many on both the right and the left believe is inevitable. 1.

Letters From Rebecca is a play for two actors reading selected letters from a 12 year correspondence between Rebecca Bruns, a New Orleans writer, and Michael Corrigan from San Francisco.

The play opened in Ketchum, Idaho and was subsequently broadcast by NPR Playhouse. Rebecca was a dear friend and a wonderful writer.

Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering! Wait...what? Rebecca Twynham hates nature, loves a juicy steak, is not Marked, and thinks wolves come in one form: on four feet and with fur. So when she´s hauled to the annual werewolf Gathering by this scary as hell magical vortex, she´s pretty surprised to find out werewolves are real. With that new knowledge, she finds she still hates nature, she´d love a juicy steak, and maybe - she might be - Marked. Well, she doesn´t see a Mark, but she also has heavy scarring from a childhood accident - or was it intentional? Plus, she really wants to climb the gorgeous Alpha Pair, Aidan and Carson, like a tree. Luckily, the two hot werewolves wanna sink their roots into her flower and...the nature analogies have gone too far. Aidan and Carson have been a strong Alpha Pair for 14 years. They´re tied together by their bond, and ache to claim a woman as their own. But while Carson has always been the GQ ladies´ man, Aidan has been the afterthought - the heavily scarred and frightening werewolf who´s caused more than one woman to faint. When they find Rebecca hiding in the Bad Doggie ballroom, they rejoice that they´ve finally found the one for them. Except with curvaceous, delicious Rebecca, their roles are reversed. Instead of rushing into the arms of sleek and sexy Carson, Rebecca clings to Aidan. Carson should rejoice in her acceptance of Aidan, but jealousy rears its ugly head, destroying their triad before it has a moment to form. Then things go from jealousy-driven bad to worse when the five families decide there won´t be any more Wickhams joining the wolfy family trees. Oh, right, she forgot that part. Apparently her Wickham cousins are kind of a big deal in werewolf land. Big. The Alpha Marked series: The Wickham Sisters Scarlet Gabriella Whitney The Twynham Sisters ... 1. Language: English.
