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.

Among the annals of American serial killers, few were as complex and prolific as Joseph Paul Franklin. At a gangly 5´11, Franklin hardly looked imposing, but once he put a rifle in his hands and an interracial couple in his cross hairs, Joseph Paul Franklin was as deadly as any serial killer. In this true crime story, you will learn about how one man turned his hatred into a vocation of murder, which eventually left over 20 people dead across America. Truly, Franklin´s story is not only that of a true crime serial killer, but also one of racism in America, as he chose Jews, blacks, and especially interracial couples as his victims. Joseph Paul Franklin´s story is unique among serial killers biographies because he gained no sexual satisfaction from his murders and there is no indication that he was ever compelled to kill. But make no mistake about it, by all definitions; Joseph Paul Franklin was a serial killer. In fact, the FBI stated that Franklin was the first known racially motivated serial killer in the United States: he planned to kill as many of his perceived enemies as possible in order to start an epic race war across the country. An examination of Franklin´s life will reveal how he became a racially motivated serial killer and the steps he took to carry out his one man war against the world. Listen to a disturbing story of true crime murder in America´s heartland. You will be disturbed and perplexed at Franklin´s murderous campaign as he made himself a one man death squad, eliminating as many of his political enemies that he could. But you will also be captivated with Franklin´s shrewdness and cunning as he avoided the authorities for years while he carried out his diabolical plot! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Miles Taylor.

In The Book on Leadership, best-selling author, pastor, and teacher John MacArthur sets the record straight. Leadership does not come from a job title. It isn�t a matter of personality or charisma. And it isn�t the same thing as iron-fisted authority. True leadership � the kind that refuses to bend to a shifting, fickle world � comes from a much deeper source. Based on the writings of one of the most effective spiritual leaders of all time � the apostle Paul � MacArthur presents the ´´26 Characteristics of a True Leader.´´ Whether you are a business leader, civic leader, church leader, parent, teacher, or student, the life of Paul will empower you to unleash your own capacity for leadership. 1.
