He has watched her from afar.... Paul Reed has been raising children since he was a child himself, but he wouldn´t change his life, even if given an opportunity. That is, until one of his brothers says four little words that shake the foundation of his world. ´´She´s not a lesbian,´´ shouldn´t be quite so earth shattering, but suddenly the woman he loves is available, and he´ll do whatever it takes to win her over. They call her Friday, and she´s hiding more than just her name - Friday has worked in the Reeds´ tattoo parlor for four years. She´s become more than just an employee, and she loves being in the middle of something so wonderful. She treasures the way the Reeds live for one another, and she adores the way they take care of their family. She would do just about anything to be part of it, if not for the fact that she doesn´t deserve a family of her own. Or does she? Friday is punishing herself for her past, and by doing so, she pushes away the one man who could truly love her. Separately, they´re strong. Together, they´re vulnerable. As a team, they rock. 1.

Detective Paul Monroe has little room in his life for anything but work. Maintaining order and solving cases in the town of Thornwood Park keeps him busy. When Jerry Gregoria, a popular bartender and personal trainer is found murdered, there’s no shortage of suspects. It seems Jerry was busy shaking more than cocktails all over town, leaving Paul and his partner with an ever-growing list of men and women who have reasons to want Jerry dead. The deeper Paul delves into the case, the more he finds himself drawn to hotel manager Cliff Baxter, whom he hasn’t seen in years. Cliff Baxter’s childhood crush on Paul Monroe hasn’t waned since high school. In fact, with the sexy detective conducting the investigation at the hotel, Cliff is more than happy to help. Ever since his last relationship went up in flames, Cliff has made it a rule to never get involved with a closeted man. But after Paul is threatened and things between the two heat up, Cliff decides to make an exception. With new twists in the case popping up every day and the mayor breathing down the police department’s neck, Paul needs to solve the case yesterday. It takes a crisis for Paul and Cliff to realize what started out as something casual could be everything they’ve both been looking for but never thought to find. But if the killer strikes again, they might never get that chance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kale Williams. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/160129/bk_acx0_160129_sample.mp3.

Newbery Medal winner Armstrong Sperry has such an affinity for life on the high seas that his readers will imagine themselves right beside the bold John Paul Jones, luring enemy craft into danger and engaging them in close combat. Jones, a talented young captain, became an invaluable figure in America´s fight for independence when he offered his sailing skills to the Continental Navy. In his barely seaworthy vessel, the Bonhomme Richard, he harassed British ships and commandeered their cargo, including desperately needed ammunition and uniforms. Sperry paints a vital portrait of this true American hero. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Benjamin Becker. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/000614/bk_adbl_000614_sample.mp3.

Paul Madriani has ample reason to suspect he´s representing a guilty man. Dr. David Crone, a respected medical researcher and principal in mapping the human genome, is charged with the murder of a young colleague: 26-year-old Kalista Jordan, an African-American research physician whose body washed up on a beach in San Diego Bay. Forensic evidence links her murder with material in Crone´s garage. Crone had both opportunity and motive: Kalista had recently ended their affair, and may have been deserting him professionally as well, moving on to a rival genetic research facility. However, when a key witness for the prosecution dies unexpectedly, leaving an incriminating note behind, Crone´s innocence seems confirmed - until Madriani hits upon a potentially damning loose end. 1.

Riveting…a suspenseful tale, right up to the satisfying climax, wrote Publishers Weekly in praise of The Judge. ´´Legal thrillers don´t get much better than this.´´ Kirkus Reviews hailed Undue Influence as the ´´courtroom novel of the year´´. Now Martini delivers Paul Madriani´s most challenging case yet: One pitting a drug-addicted mother against her daughter´s newly rich grandfather in a contentious custody case that leads to criminal accusations and ultimately murder. Having moved to San Diego to be closer to the woman in his life, Madriani takes on the case of Jonah Hale, an elderly man in terrible straits. As a result of their only child Jessica´s longtime drug addiction, Jonah and his wife have been raising their eight-year-old granddaughter, Amanda. On the heels of Jonah´s multimillion-dollar state lottery win, Jessica revives her interest in mothering. When Jonah won´t deal - maternal rights for a mega-bucks payoff - Jessica plays dirty: She accuses the old man of having sexually abused her as a child and similarly abusing Amanda now. Enter Zo Suade - a flamboyant, feminist activist with a penchant for making the objects of custody battles and their mother/plaintiffs ´´disappear´´. True to form, a week after Zo takes on Jessica´s case, mother and daughter vanish. When Zo´s body turns up, Jonah becomes the prime suspect. And Madriani is the man who can prove his innocence. Filled with action in and out of court, rich in characters with motives obvious and subtle, The Attorney marks the much-anticipated return of Paul Madriani. 1. Language: English.

Lean, speedy, and packing a wallop of a plot twist was Publishers Weekly´s verdict of Steve Martini´s The Jury. Now Martini crafts yet another legal nail-biter featuring perennial favorite attorney Paul Madriani. After a lawyer friend is killed along with his client in a hail of gunfire outside the federal courthouse in San Diego, Madriani takes on another client who he believes is involved at the edges of the double murder. He takes the case not to defend the man, but to find out who killed his friend and why. Madriani is tortured by questions of conflict, his duty to a client who may have killed his friend, and the need to know the truth, wondering whether he himself had been marked for death only to have a friend die in his place. Soon he is drawn into a vortex of crime that spans the Americas. As he searches for the killer, Madriani rides the crest of a dangerous wave of international drug deals and people who murder for money. Suddenly he realizes it is not heroin or cocaine that resulted in the murder of his friend, but a priceless piece of pre-Columbian art - something so dazzling in the information it holds as to be one of the treasures of the ages. In a quest that takes Madriani from California to Mexico and the Guatemalan border, he discovers that while the motive to kill may be driven by distant, exotic, and ancient artifacts, the killer, like a serpent, lies much closer at hand. 1.
