When Prime Brokers Fail:The Unheeded Risk to Hedge Funds, Banks, and the Financial Industry J. S. Aikman
Healing a Broken Marriage:Love Never Fails Deborah Ross
The Broken Ones is a gruesome mix of Science Fiction, Crime, Horror & the Supernatural. The Broken Ones is the latest dark, gripping, chilling supernatural tale from a highly talented internationally acclaimed Australian author. It’s the near future and the world has descended into chaos. On the surface, everything looks the same yet the unthinkable has happened...the dead have risen. Everyone is haunted by a dead relative, friend, spouse, or stranger, and these spirits are unshakable, silent and watching. No one is safe. Governments the world over fail to deal with the epidemic, they begin to lose control of their economies and their resources. Their people. Crime is rife, and murders commonplace. But who is responsible: the ghosts or the people? Finding out is where Detective Oscar Mariani comes in, although it’s nearly impossible to run a department when you can’t even see half the suspects. His strike rate is embarrassingly low. Then he stumbles into a case that cuts through his apathy and depression, a case that suggests a ritualistic, brutal serial killer attracted to innocent young women at work and one that, unfortunately for Mariani and his less jaded partner, implicates those in high places. However, if he can solve it, and keep alive himself, he may be able to exorcise his own ghostly shadow, a dead young man who might just have something to say. Mixing police procedural, suspense and horror, Stephen M Irwin´s new book is a compelling, knuckle-whitening ride. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grant Cartwright.

Prequel to the USA Today best-selling and Goodreads Choice finalist Stolen Songbird. Below Forsaken Mountain, a plot is being hatched to overthrow the tyrant king of Trollus, and Marc is the right-hand man of its leader. His involvement is information more than one troll would kill to possess, which is why he must keep it a secret from everyone, even the girl he loves. After accidentally ruining her sister´s chance to become queen, Pénélope is given one last opportunity by her father, the Duke d´Angoulême, to make herself useful: she must find proof that the boy she´s in love with is conspiring against the crown. If she fails, her life will be forfeit. Marc and Pénélope must navigate the complex politics of Trollus, where powers on all sides are intent on using them as pawns, forcing them to risk everything for a chance at a life together. Except being together may turn out to be the greatest risk of all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Michael Summerer, Erin Moon.

Voters can do nothing until they have the facts - the hard, cold, true facts, and that is what Hugh Hewitt provides in The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall & Epic Fail of the Hope & Change Presidency. Hugh makes the case that Obama´s has been a disastrous presidency, a fiasco in fact, and reveals the president to be a wholly unprepared and incapable-of-learning ideologue whose nearly every move has been wrong, and whose almost every decision has been ill-conceived and poorly executed. But for the SEALs´ dispatch of bin Laden and the military´s removal of al-Awalki and other terrorists - whom the president still seeks to remove from Gitmo to domestic courts in the United States - Obama would be wholly without anything to claim as an achievement of his time in the Oval Office. In addition to the monumental failures of Obamacare, the soaring unemployment rate, the 2009 ´´stimulus´´ and the massive debt, Hugh Hewitt examines the scores and scores of broken promises and fraudulent forecasts, dozens of dodges and hundreds of disastrous innovations that President Obama has inflicted on America. It has been a reign of incompetency not before seen in the country - ever. According to Hewitt, President Obama is not just a failed president, but the most spectacularly failed president of modern times, and Hewitt´s precise and lawyerly indictment is made to help the American people see what has happened, and what desperately needs to be done in the upcoming election. The path for the American people is clear and urgent: Barack Obama mustn´t be allowed to run the country into the ground as the Commander-in-Chief for four more years. 1. Language: English.

There are 25 elite kidnap and ransom specialists in the world. Only one is a woman: Thea Paris. And she´s the best in the business. Twenty years ago, a terrified young boy was abducted in the middle of the night by masked intruders while his sister watched, paralyzed with fear. Returned after a harrowing nine months with his captors, Thea´s brother has never been the same. This life-shattering experience drove Thea to become what she is today: a world-class freedom broker. Most hostage-recovery work is done at the negotiation table, but when diplomacy fails, Thea leads Quantum Security International´s black-ops team on highly sensitive rescue missions to political hot spots around the globe. Her childhood nightmare resurfaces when her oil magnate father, Christos Paris, is snatched from his yacht off Santorini on his 60th birthday, days away from the biggest deal of his career. The brutal kidnappers left the entire crew slaughtered in their wake, but strangely, there are no ransom demands, no political appeals, no prisoner release requests - just obscure and foreboding texts written in Latin sent from burner phones. Knowing the survival window for kidnap victims is small, Thea throws herself into the most urgent and challenging rescue mission of her life - but will she be able to prevent this kidnapping from destroying her family for good? 1.
