Secrets, Lies & Homicide is the second book in the Claire Marshall trilogy. Claire’s construction company has a celebrity client. Tony Burke is a well-known race-car driver, perhaps better known as a playboy. He wants to restore his family house in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District. When Claire talks him into opening his father’s old studio, they find evidence of an old murder. Within a day, there’s a second murder. Tony insists the two crimes, although years apart, are connected. Unfortunately, the most obvious link puts him on top of the list of suspects. Claire has been seeing a homicide detective, but her sympathies lie more and more with the chief suspect. Tony asks Claire to help him track down an old land deal that, he thinks, will lead to the killer. Their search uncovers a web of family secrets and old lies. DNA tests and money trails compound the confusion. Everyone has something to hide, and nothing stops the killer from striking again. Love is dangerous. Truth can be fatal. 1. Language: English.

Karen Harris, commander of Unit T, had come to the streets of London in an effort to curb the activities of an Italian cartel engaged in prostitution and abduction across Europe and beyond. Alongside this, many young homeless in the city are going missing with nothing being done about it. Karen starts investigating an agency that not only rents out companions but is involved in more-sinister operations. The interconnected problems lead to Karen going covert in an attempt to get at the truth, with an operation that pushes her and her friend, Sherry Malloy, to the limit. Karen is about to learn the real truth concerning the fate of the missing teenagers. Even worse, she can do nothing about it. But if the truth ever became public, the revelations could shake the very foundations of civilized society - not only in Britain but across Europe. The Trafficker series once again takes the listener deep into the very dangerous world of the criminals engaged not only in drugs but in people trafficking, which exists in every town and city. It is not for the faint hearted but nevertheless makes for compulsive listening. Author´s note: Italian Connection is the sequel to Russian Connection, but the book can be enjoyed as a standalone story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gaynor M. Kelly.

General George C. Marshall, chief of staff of the US Army during World War II, faced the daunting task not only of overseeing two theaters of a global conflict but also of selecting the best generals to carry out American grand strategy. Marshall and His Generals is the first and only book to focus entirely on that selection process and the performances, both stellar and disappointing, that followed from it. Stephen Taaffe explores how and why Marshall selected the Army´s commanders. Among Marshall´s chief criteria were character (including ´´unselfish and devoted purpose´´), education (whether at West Point, Fort Leavenworth, or the Army War College), and striking a balance between experience and relative youth in a war that required both wisdom and great physical stamina. As the war unfolded, Marshall also factored into his calculations the combat leadership his generals demonstrated and the opinions of his theater commanders. Delving deeper than other studies, this path-breaking work produces a seamless analysis of Marshall´s selection process of operational-level commanders. Taaffe also critiques the performance of these generals during the war and reveals the extent to which their actions served as stepping stones to advancement. 1. Language: English.

The Book of Oratory:A New Collection of Extracts in Prose, Poetry, and Dialogue, Containing Selections From Distinguished American and English Orators, Divines, and Poets (Classic Reprint) Edward Chauncey Marshall
Platform Revolution by Geoffrey Parker, Marshall Van Alstyne, and Sangeet Choudary is a thorough look at the development of platforms as market dominators, their opposition against pipeline organizations, and best practices in establishing and overseeing platforms. Platforms interface two sorts of clients with a specific end goal to trade something of significant worth. This is not quite the same as the customary pipeline model of business where something of significant worth is made by exchanging it from maker to maker with the buyer accepting it at the last stride. Platforms are ruling forms especially in light of the fact that they diminish the expenses of significant creation, utilization, and quality control. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Ackley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/076710/bk_acx0_076710_sample.mp3.

Platform Revolution by Geoffrey Parker, Marshall Van Alstyne, and Sangeet Choudary is a comprehensive look at the emergence of platforms as market dominators, their competition against pipeline businesses, and best practices in founding and managing platforms. Platforms connect two types of users in order to exchange something of value. This is different from the traditional pipeline model of business where something of value is created by transferring it from producer to producer with the consumer receiving it at the last step. Platforms are dominating production processes particularly because they reduce the costs of value creation, consumption, and quality control. Platforms serve consumer-facing markets as well as business-to-business markets and can power rapid growth through economies of scale. Each side of the network depends on the other side to be in place in order to function, so a central challenge of any platform is to recruit users on both sides. Please note: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Scholl.
