The town of Willow Creek is seemingly free after Remy's sacrifice set off a life-altering chain of events that resulted in the demise of most of the world's vampire population. Sabine flees to her home afterward, except her family has disappeared and a "For Sale" sign is planted in her front yard. Just when she thinks she's lost it all, she's summoned back to Willow Creek Manor. Confused, and almost certainly walking into a trap, she reluctantly returns, only to find that the king of vampires still lives; and he is none other than her Remy. The dead love of her life is alive, but he doesn't quite seem like the same man. With the help of a witch, a ghost, and a longtime enemy, can Sabine bring back the man she fell in love with or will she lose him forever? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joel Froomkin.

After several unsuccessful attempts to reclaim sleep, Toni heads to the ship’s deck to read.

Content to be unmarried and plainspoken, Kathryn "Kappy" King is an odd woman out in the Amish community of Blue Sky, Pennsylvania. But she's skilled at making the special kapps local women need to cover their hair. And she might be the only one who can unearth the danger hiding in this peaceful valley.... When Kappy's neighbor Ruth Peachey turns up dead in her yard, everyone in Blue Sky believes it's a tragic accident. Until the Englisch police find the gentle dog breeder was deliberately struck down - and arrest her mentally challenged son, Jimmy, for the crime. Jimmy's sister, Edie, returns to Blue Sky to clear his name, yet no one will speak to a shunned former Amish woman, much less give her information.  Determined to help, Kappy starts digging for the truth among her seemingly innocent neighbors. But suddenly a series of suspicious "accidents" threatens Edie and the Peachey farm property Edie is determined to protect for her brother's future. Now, as danger looms large in the small community, Kappy must bait a trap for a killer snapping hard at her heels. And Edie must decide whether to make a home once more in the town she thought she'd left behind.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stina Nielsen.

One summer weekend in 1949 - but not our 1949 - the well-connected "Farthing set", a group of upper-crust English families, enjoy a country retreat. Lucy is a minor daughter in one of those families; her parents were both leading figures in the group that overthrew Churchill and negotiated peace with Herr Hitler eight years before. Despite her parents' evident disapproval, Lucy is married - happily - to a London Jew. It was therefore quite a surprise to Lucy when she and her husband, David, found themselves invited to the retreat. It's even more startling when, on the retreat's first night, a major politician of the Farthing set is found gruesomely murdered, with abundant signs that the killing was ritualistic. It quickly becomes clear to Lucy that she and David were brought to the retreat in order to pin the murder on him. Major political machinations are at stake, including an initiative in Parliament, supported by the Farthing set, to limit the right to vote to university graduates. But whoever's behind the murder, and the frame-up, didn't reckon on the principal investigator from Scotland Yard being a man with very private reasons for sympathizing with outcasts and looking beyond the obvious. As the trap slowly shuts on Lucy and David, they begin to see a way out - a way fraught with peril in a darkening world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Keating, Bianca Amato.

A seemingly impossible mystery tests the keen mind and forensic skills of Joanna Blalock, the daughter of Sherlock Holmes and the heir to his unique talent for deduction, from USA Today best-selling author Leonard Goldberg.  The following case has not previously been disclosed to the public due to the sensitive information on foreign affairs. All those involved were previously bound by the Official Secrets Act. With the passage of time and the onset of the Great War, these impediments have been removed and the story can now be safely told.  When an executed original of a secret treaty between England and France, known as the French Treaty, is stolen from the country estate of Lord Halifax, Scotland Yard asks Joanna, Dr. John Watson, Jr., and Dr. John Watson, Sr., to use their detective skills to participate in the hunt for the missing treaty. As the government becomes more restless to find the missing document and traditional investigative means fail to turn up the culprit, Joanna is forced to devise a clever plan to trap the thief and recover the missing treaty.  Told from the point of view of Dr. John Watson, Jr., in a style similar to the original Sherlock Holmes stories, A Study in Treason is based partly on facts in our world and partly on the facts left to us by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.   A Study in Treason is the perfect audiobook for fans of Sherlock Holmes. 1.

An intriguing thriller from a former NPR correspondent about a young reporter who must match wits with spies, assassins and a terrorist sleeper cell targeting the very heart of American power. "If, on an early summer’s night, you wanted to kill a man, how would you do it? Would you lay a trap, sharpen a dagger, uncork a poison? Personally, I’ve always leaned toward the dramatic.

As she chases leads from Harvard Yard to the courtyards of Cambridge, England, to a clandestine rendezvous in London, to the inside of a nuclear terrorist network...the intrigue seems to suit her. But nothing is what it seems. When she arrives back in Washington, DC, for a key interview that promises to tie together the leads she has puzzled out, Alex the hunter becomes Alex the hunted. An assassin is dispatched.... Her laptop disappears.... Her phone is tapped....

Now, as in this lifetime, cab drivers, statesmen, academics, and raggedy-assed children sit spellbound at his feet. No wonder, then, if the pairing of Holmes and Watson has triggered more imitators than any other duo in literature."-John Le Carré "The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work gives him a unique place in English letters."-Stephen Fry "Holmes has a timeless talent, passion and literary brilliance that puts him heads, shoulders and deerstalker above all other detectives."- Alexander McCall Smith Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet (1888) is the first of four of the original Sherlock Holmes novels and introduced the world to the most famous detective duo in literature. From the initial discovery of a corpse in a deserted house in London, to the wild west of the pioneer days of Utah, this is transatlantic crime adventure steeped in mystery, romance and delectable revenge. A Study in Scarlet was initially published in the magazine Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887 to little fanfare, yet was the foundation of the 56 stories, four novels, and the portrayal of the character of Sherlock Holmes in hundreds of literary, film, television and stage adaptations. In the first of the Sherlock Holmes novels, the reader is initially introduced to Dr. John Watson, who has returned to London after sustaining injuries in the Anglo-Afghan war. Looking for cheap lodging, he settles on sharing a flat at 221B Baker Street with a laid-back yet eccentric roommate named Sherlock Holmes. Watson is perplexed at the theories of deduction that his new acquaintance s developed, until his occupation of Consulting Detective is revealed. Subsequently, a telegram arrives from Scotland Yard requesting the aid of Holmes's talents in a mystifying murder case. In an empty house in Brixton, the body of Enoch Drebber has been found. When both Holmes and Watson arrive at the crime scene they find the body of the poisoned victim, with the word "Rache" written in blood on the wall. Through other clues, including a wedding ring found in the trousers of the victim, the context of the crime seems nearly impenetrable. When a second body is discovered, with the word "Rache" once again scrawled in blood. With his astounding skill, Holmes is able to lead the killer directly into his trap. Once the killer is revealed, it is his heartbreaking story, set in the lawless wilds of the pioneering days of the American West that is told. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of A Study in Scarlet is both modern and readable.
