Introducing Denverite Brendan Murphy, or ´´Murph´´ as he is known to the rest of the world. He lives alone in his crow´s nest apartment, fries a hamburger for every meal, does his dish, then channel surfs for reruns of Gilligans Island. He is a radical minimalist. He strives to earn no more money as a driver for Rocky Mountain Taxi Company than his needs require. He is determined to stay out of the lives of those he transports. He struggles with one issue and is spectacularly bad with the other. The Asphalt Warrior is the first of eight novels published to date. Come prowl the mean streets of Denver with Murph and ponder the meaning of the world and all sorts of deep questions, such as: Why would anyone want to DO anything? 1. Language: English.

Denver cabbie, Brendan Murphy, known to all as Murph, has two goals in life. First, to earn no more than it takes to keep his bohemian lifestyle afloat. Second, to never, under any circumstances, get involved in the lives of his passengers. In The Heart of Darkness Club, the third in novelist Gary Reilly´s Asphalt Warrior series, Murph once again fails spectacularly at his second goal the minute he picks up a mover named Trowbridge. Movers in Murph´s world are not to be confused with movers and shakers. Trowbridge pays his fare with a crisp five-dollar bill. Later, Murph finds an enigmatic handwritten note on the bill. Murph can´t get the message out of his head, believing it was specifically directed at him. Murph sets off in search of his passenger, the meaning of the message, and the inner workings of his very soul. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Goldsmith.

Yet another thing she could thank her mother for, but at this point she had other things on her mind. Like the freezing cold rain, the soggy cardboard that separated her from the alley asphalt, oh, and the gangsters who are out hunting her, because she´s someone else´s property. Thanks again, Mom.

Elle Jo: Forget the flowers and tender kisses. Tomorrow I´m marrying a man who took a bullet for me, and I don´t have a choice. Did I say he´s an outlaw? Asphalt has slayed more men on the road and taken more women between the sheets than I can ever count. He´s arrogant and savage. So why the hell can´t I keep my lips off his when he gives me that smirk and whispers filthy things in my ear? Asphalt: She thinks it´s pretend, and club business is the only reason I´m slapping my brand on her skin. What a damned joke. Elle got away from me years ago. Never again. I´m putting her where she belongs the second I hear ´´kiss the bride´´. Yeah, I told my brothers I´d go along with this sham marriage to save the Grizzlies MC. They don´t know how bad I need her. This isn´t pretend anymore. The good-girl act won´t save her this time. I´m keeping my bride. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mason Lloyd, Tatiana Sokolov.

Released from the magic pokey and paroled with limited power is enough to make any witch grumpy. However, if you throw in a recently resurrected cat, a lime-green Kia, and a sexy egotistical werewolf, it´s enough to make a gal fly off the edge. Not to mention a mission...with no freaking directions. So here I sit in Asscrack, West Virginia, trying to figure out how to complete my mysterious mission before All Hallows Eve when I´ll get turned into a mortal. The animals in the area are convinced I´m the Shifter Whisperer (whatever the hell that is) and the hotter-than- asphalt-in-August werewolf thinks I´m his mate. Now apparently, I´m slated to save a bunch of hairy freaks of nature? If they think I´m the right witch for the job, they´ve swallowed some bad brew. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Riggio.
