By the light of day, the world seems pleasant and safe. We tell ourselves we are the top of the life chain, the ultimate evolved species. When the sun sets and menacing eyes open, the lie is over. Our laughable dominance over the earth fades behind the veil of night. Beneath quiet and gloomy skies, rotten fingers claw upward from the cold ground. Coffin lids squeal. The lunatics in dank cells cackle the hymns of hell. Torturous nightmares rage in innocent minds devouring hope and sanity. Blades of vengeance harvest false justice among the guiltless. And the claws of forgotten beasts kill without reason. They Come at Midnight...to feed...and to bring us to our knees in serve to their dark masters. At the final toll of the bell, the wicked hunt begins, and there is no hope for our survival. Everette Bell brings us twelve tales of screaming terror in the tradition of scratchy radio dramas, black and white drive-in movies, and low budget video cassettes. Feel the breath of death on your neck as you read the tolling tales of the midnight hour of doom. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Wehrlen.

They were sworn enemies by day - and passionate lovers by night. The cowboy moved so quickly Caroline didn´t have time to think, much less react. One moment he was standing there looking at her across the blazing hot Nevada street, the next moment, she was in his arms. Her protests were stopped as he bent his head toward her. A complete stranger, a cowboy she´d met just moments ago when she stepped off the dusty stagecoach was actually going to put his mouth on hers and kiss her. Things like this never happened in Boston! Just before she thought she would certainly swoon from the heat and the breathlessness and the shocking thrill of anticipation, the sound of gunshots pierced the fog she was in and a bullet whizzed past her left ear. The cowboy swooped her up into his arms then dropped to the ground and rolled with her under the stagecoach. Her heavy skirts rode up over her thighs and she struggled to pull them down before he got a glimpse of her lacy pantalettes but it was no use. He had her pinned with his body and the way they fit together was shameful. His chest was pressed so close to her that she was certain he could feel the outline of her breasts through her blue dress. His hip bones jutted against the slight soft curve of her stomach and she dared not imagine the cause of the powerful heat pressing against her belly. He took full advantage of the situation and positioned himself between her legs and she hated herself for noticing just how handsome he really was. She´d never felt more vulnerable - or more alive - in her entire life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Braden Wright. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012658/bk_acx0_012658_sample.mp3.

5-CD box (LP-size) with 85-page hardcover book, 150 tracks. Playing time approx. 395 mns. Hank Ballard and The Midnighters were the first professional vocal group young James Brown ever witnessed in person. He vowed one day soon he´d be onstage doing the very same thing. Our retrospective contains everything the Rock ´n´ Roll Hall of Famer and his vocal group cut for the Federal and King labels from 1954 to 1962! Five jam-packed discs include unissued gems, alternate takes, unreissued rarities, and a demo version of The Twist as well as the classic hit! It´s also featuring all the original hit versions, and comes with comprehensive liner notes from Bill Dahl!, Long before The Temptations , Four Tops , and Spinners made Detroit ground zero for soulful male vocal groups, the city spawned Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, the Motor City´s first nationally successful R&B group. Though Hank Ballard could belt the blues with livewire intensity (and does here), Hank Ballard´s group was primarily concerned with rocking the house. They were one of the first vocal groups to record with their own band, initially led by blistering Houston guitarist Cal Green, whose solos are frequently mind-boggling., Never has the recorded legacy of the late Rock ´n´ Roll Hall of Famer been treated with such loving care and respect, and never have he and his group sounded better!

The bullet tore through 900 meters before the ejected shell casing even hit the ground. Splitting thick blond hairs with enormous energy, it introduced itself to Sven Olagssen and valiantly rushed out the other side of his head, exploding into thousands of unidentifiable little pieces - just as designed. Agent Stone calmly pulled his head back from his sniper scope. His senses were on full alert now. Red-billed blue Mmagpies were chirping to each other and showing off their bright colors; nearby an occasional bulbul would interrupt them with an anxious tweedle, and osmanthus flowers filled the air with their intoxicatingly sweet scent. For some, death was a disturbing and haunting reality. For others, it was something never witnessed or spoken of. For Trey Stone, the death of his targets meant many others would live. He had no problem falling asleep that night to the humming engines of the CIA yacht…until a phone call spun his life around and drew him into a dark and very personal war. If you like Tom Clancy, James Patterson, David Baldacci, Daniel Silva, or Ward Larsen, then you will love Conrad Brasso! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Conrad Brasso.

A sweeping narrative history - the first in over 20 years - of America´s first major offensive of World War II, the brutal, no-quarter-given campaign to take Japanese-occupied Guadalcanal. From early August until mid-November of 1942, US marines, sailors, and pilots struggled for dominance against an implacable enemy: Japanese soldiers, inculcated with the bushido tradition of death before dishonor, avatars of bayonet combat - close-up, personal, and gruesome. The glittering prize was Henderson Airfield. Japanese planners knew that if they neutralized the airfield, the battle was won. So did the marines who stubbornly defended it. The outcome of the long slugfest remained in doubt under the pressure of repeated Japanese air, land, and sea operations. And losses were heavy. At sea, in a half-dozen fiery combats, the US Navy fought the Imperial Japanese Navy to a draw, but at a cost of more than 4,500 sailors. More American sailors died in these battles off Guadalcanal than in all previous US wars, and each side lost 24 warships. On land, more than 1,500 soldiers and marines died, and the air war claimed more than 500 US planes. Japan´s losses on the island were equally devastating - starving Japanese soldiers called it ´´the island of death´´. But when the attritional struggle ended, American marines, sailors, and airmen had halted the Japanese juggernaut that for five years had whirled through Asia and the Pacific. Guadalcanal was America´s first major ground victory against Japan and, most importantly, the Pacific War´s turning point. Published on the 75th anniversary of the battle and utilizing vivid accounts written by the combatants at Guadalcanal, along with marine corps and army archives and oral histories, Midnight in the Pacific is both a sweeping narrative and a compelling drama of individual marines, soldiers, and sailors caught in the crosshairs of history.
