From dreams filled with strange, beautiful images and haunting music, Claire Challis woke to the repulsive sound of a nasal, falsetto voice scratching its way through her closed bedroom window - the kind of voice adults reserve for speaking to pets or very small children. A particularly annoying case of the latter, she decided, for the voice was crooning, ´´My, don´t we look fine in our Sunday best! Are you going to church, young man?´´ From her second-floor apartment, she could hear only an indistinct, mumbled response, but she thought it came from little Paul Hernandez, who lived next door. A momentary silence ensued, and then she heard, ´´Are you going with your parents?´´ Claire couldn´t help but shudder at the dry, coarse quality of the voice. The speaker sounded like an elderly man, but the intentional distortion of his speech impressed her as vaguely sinister. Little Paul must have answered in the affirmative, for the speaker continued, ´´You look so cute. How would you like to go with me to myyy church?´´ From the author, Mark Rainey: ´´Balak, like much of my fiction, is a part of a multilayered, interconnected universe that draws heavily from the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft while using the most modern of settings and characters. Many of the settings for Balak are very real places in Chicago, which I attempted to capture and cast in a somewhat different light than they - at least probably - appear in real life.´´ 1.

This book begins with an expose of Grover Cleveland who was known for being an honest politician during his presidency in the 1880s. Although he was generally an honest president as well, there happened to be an incident during which he disappeared aboard a friend´s yacht for four days and lied about the reason for his absence. Moving on to the next story, we learn about Edwin Howard Armstrong, also known as The Major, who is just about to jump from the 13th floor of a New York City apartment block at the end of January 1954. He had left a note that calculated the odds of his body being smashed upon impact with the ground below. He took the time to dress in attire which people would recognize him in for identification purposes and then moved over to the window. This part of the book does not tell whether or not Armstrong actually jumped. First, we are told the race to discover, decode and understand the new phenomenon of radio would be run by Armstrong, David Sarnoff and Lee de Forest. Abruptly, the narrative jumps back in time some 48 years as we join a much younger Armstrong being chastised by his mother for not coming inside when she ordered. The young Armstrong is, we discover, sitting in a chair hanging from ropes attached to his newest and best 100 foot antenna enjoying the feel of the wind at such a height. Even at this young age, Armstrong was considered gifted, from the construction of his first crystal set radio receiver came his dream of taking this new technology and using it to bring sounds of voice and music into every home in America. 1.

Elle Harrison is back! She and her pals Jen, Becky, and Susan travel to Mexico where Jen has arranged cosmetic surgery, after which she will recover in a plush hotel suite.

When the room is later occupied by another patient, Elle finds her brutally mutilated body on that same balcony. Police question Elle as the last person to see these women alive. Their doctor also takes an interest in Elle; a woman staying at the hotel asks Elle to help her fend off a creepy stalker; a veiled woman sneaks into Elle´s suite at night; and her late husband, Charlie, reappears (or Elle imagines that he does) when Elle gets pushed under water in the ocean and nearly drowns.

Sirens were blaring. They hurt his ears, but he pushed on. The floor in the corridor was shiny and black, reflecting the white light from the pods stacked next to the walls on either side. He glanced from left to right as he ran, searching the screens next to the pods frantically. The markings flashing on them were in the language of his captors, but he´d spent enough time among them to know what they meant. He´d learned early on that if your masters think you´re an idiot, they let the reins slip. He was anything but an idiot. After a while, they speak openly in front of you, like you´re nothing but a piece of furniture. One slip leads to another, and pretty soon you know everything about their deviant empire. He didn´t have a name, had never been given one. Mostly he was referred to as ´´you´´ or ´´slave´´, sometimes no coherent word at all but just a grunting sound. His masters were fat and lazy. Well, now their laziness had come to bite them on their fat asses. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dorinda Ravish. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/080510/bk_acx0_080510_sample.mp3.
