But Lisa, now thirty and watching Raff suffer from the ravages of bipolar illness, believes if she can solve this puzzle, she might somehow save her brother. For Raff´s pain is intrinsically tied up with feelings of parental abandonment. What starts as a noble goal for Lisa soon grows into a vicious family war, wreaking destruction on Lisa´s marriage. Lisa discovers details of her parents´ relationship that her mother has long hidden. Shocking clues appear as Lisa reads a letter her father, Nathan, wrote before he died, prompting her to visit Nathan´s former boss, Ed Hutchinson. From him, Lisa learns that her engineer father helped design a generator run by radioactive materials. Ed lets slip that Nathan participated in a dangerous secret experiment, a fact her mother discounts as Nathan´s cause of death. Accusations and excuses fly. Yet, how much of what Lisa uncovers is true? Is truth solely subjective? Lisa sifts through layers of lies as she journeys into her father´s story, seeking to understand this man she never knew. Meanwhile, her mother responds in fury and tries to destroy Lisa´s life, determined to keep Lisa from uncovering her dark secrets.

There is a new broom at Scotland Yard: Nimrod Frost. His first ´´little job” for Lestrade is to investigate the reported appearance of a lion in Cornwall. This is hardly a task for an Inspector. Yet even as Lestrade questions a witness, a man is reported dead - horrifically mauled. Having solved that case to his own satisfaction, Lestrade returns to London and to more suspicious deaths - all old men who should have died quietly in their sleep. Is there a connection? Lestrade´s superiors, especially Nimrod Frost, discount his speculations, and he finds himself suspended from duty. But that is a mere technicality. He moves from workhouse to royal palace, from back stage at the Lyceum to regimental dinner in his search for enlightenment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: M. J. Trow.

The carnal catch - that exquisite, sweet moment when a woman is seized with passion in a romantic encounter and committed to fulfilling her sexual desire without turning back. Jen Dawson is an emergency room physician in San Francisco who prides herself on an orderly and driven life. Tommy Vietti is an experienced detective who solves homicides quicker than any other cop. Amanda Hawthorne is a powerful, young District Attorney who is defined by loyalty and an unshakeable sense of justice. Their lives change forever when Jen´s colleague, Dr. Lane Wallace, becomes a murder suspect in the death of his paramour, an ultrasound technologist. Jen fiercely defends Dr. Wallace, but her lover, Tommy, discounts her opinions as misplaced loyalty. While working a shift, Jen unwittingly becomes a witness in the investigation when she provides medical care to one of the suspects, defending her actions against criticism from Tommy and Amanda. Tommy is determined to investigate beyond the obvious, even if it means unearthing cold, hard truths about crimes of passion in his own circle of friends from the North Beach neighborhood. A romantic man with a large Italian family, Tommy follows his intuition and creatively attacks the case, forcing the killer to make a mistake. Amanda clashes with Jen when their worlds collide during the investigation, but they soon discover they have more in common than just butting heads. As their relationship takes on a heightened intensity, Jen´s world is thrown deeper into turmoil, forcing Jen and Amanda to make a decision that will change the trajectory of all their lives. 1.

The myriad approaches they adopt offer little or no real prospect for long-term success and invariably run the risk of considerable economic loss they resemble speculation or outright gambling, not a coherent investment program. But value investing - the strategy of investing in securities trading at an appreciable discount from underlying value - has a long history of delivering excellent investment results with limited marriage, divorce, a death in the family, a new job, retirement, pregnancy, a new home, kids in college, aging parents, sudden financial change, serious health conditions, or a new relationship.

Forget the wannabes. Discount the twenty-something reality-TV stars. Here, for a change, is the story of someone who´s actually lived a life... and it makes for one hell of a listen. Almost a Celebrity is the no-holds-barred autobiography of radio megastar James Whale, a man who, for over 30 years, has never been afraid to say the unsayable. Written (and now spoken) in his typically deadpan style, Almost a Celebrity charts James´ rise to the top – with plenty of trademark rants along the way – from his Surrey childhood, where he avoided school by hanging out in Soho strip joints, through his humble beginnings in local radio, via the eponymous TV which made his name, to his current status as late-night king of the airwaves. Whether discussing his encounters with celebrities or his involvement in tabloid scandals, the book is crammed with extraordinarily frank revelations. There are also unexpected twists: James´ former career as an international spy and a dark family saga that brought him into contact with a hit man. Yet James is no stranger to controversy. His outspoken opinions have led to numerous TV and radio watchdog enquiries, death threats, and even his arrest. In 2000, he confronted his toughest opponent so far when he was diagnosed with cancer and given only months to live. An inspiration to millions, James Whale is a genuine man of the people. And – as usual – there´s no stopping him from telling his story in his own engaging, inimitable way. Although slightly abridged, this audio edition contains brand new asides and off-the-cuff additions from James in the studio – nothing less than you´d expect from the radio master! 1.
