Buried Caesars: A Toby Peters Mystery Audiobook

Buried Caesars: A Toby Peters Mystery

Author: Stuart Kaminsky, Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: August 2014

The uniformed man standing before Toby Peters is General Douglas MacArthur, a soldier who considers himself the only man who can defeat the Japanese. But though he may be all-powerful in the South Pacific, today he is in Los Angeles with a problem only a detective can solve. The general has an eye on a postwar promotion to the White House, and an aide has stolen his war chest, his donor list, and a handful of embarrassing private letters. To get them back, Toby may need some help. Lucky for him, he's just met Dashiell Hammett, one of the finest crime novelists of all time. Dodging his mistress while he's waiting to rejoin the army, Dash needs amusement and thinks Toby's case sounds like a lark. In fact, the assignment proves dangerous. Toby isn't a soldier, but he soon finds he just might end up dying at a general's whim nonetheless. ***Please contact Member Services for additional documents***

Bright Futures: A Lew Fonesca Mystery Audiobook

Bright Futures: A Lew Fonesca Mystery

Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: Michael McConnohie Release Date: January 2009

Lovable everyman Lew Fonesca, the Man Who Makes Things Work in Sarasota, is once again faced with cases that try his patience and test his sanity. A local curmudgeon who has been campaigning to end state-sponsored school funding is brutally killed. A recent graduate of a public high school for the gifted is arrested for the crime and turns to Lew for help. A semiretired and much beloved singer of children’s songs is being anonymously pushed to leave Sarasota, threatened with exposure as a sexual predator. It is up to Lew to uncover the blackmailer and determine whether there is any truth to the accusation. Lew has decided that life is worth more than just going through the motions. But will the good life that Lew so richly deserves elude him as he uncovers some very sad truths? His final choice: do the right thing and see his happiness evaporate … or betray a trust and stay happy....           “Kaminsky provides enough twists and turns to keep most readers guessing, but the books power comes from the compelling portrayal of Fonseca, who still suffers emotionally from his wife's death, but continues to strive to move forward.”--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

People Who Walk in Darkness Audiobook

People Who Walk in Darkness

Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: Daniel Oreskes Release Date: August 2008

Inspector Rostnikov is a Russian bear of a man, an honest policeman in a very dishonest post-Soviet Russia. Known as “The Washtub,” Rostnikov is one of the most engaging and relevant characters in crime fiction, a sharp and caring policeman as well as the perfect tour guide to a changing (that is, disintegrating) Russia. Surviving pogroms and politburos, he has solved crimes, mostly in spite of the powers that rule his world. In People Who Walk in Darkness, Rostnikov travels to Siberia to investigate a murder at a diamond mine, where he discovers an old secret—and an even older personal problem. His compatriots head to Kiev on a trail of smuggled diamonds and kidnapped guest workers, and what they discover leads them to a vast conspiracy that not only has international repercussions but threatens them on a very personal level. “One of the better contemporary examples of an honest policeman navigating the shoals of a corrupt society…The particularly high stakes make this one of Rostnikov’s more exciting investigations.” --Publishers Weekly

Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: Michael McConnohie Release Date: May 2007

Four years ago Lew Fonesca’s wife was struck and killed in a hit-and-run within sight of their apartment. He fled Chicago, driving mindlessly until his car gave up the ghost in Sarasota, FL. Working from a cheap office behind the Dairy Queen on Highway 301, he makes a threadbare living as a process server and savors his clinical depression like a fine wine. Then his therapist, who alternately acts as his conscience and his sparring partner, tells him it’s time he goes back to Chicago and closes the door to the past so that he can finally get on with the rest of his life. Lew hates to admit it, but he’s beginning to see her point. So Lew returns to his home town, to friends and family—and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. He’s resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife. In doing so, he’ll uncover both sweet and painful memories of his past. He’ll also confront a murderer who’ll not hesitate to kill again to make sure hidden secrets stay buried. “Kaminsky has a knack for creating oddball characters in rollicking plots.”--Booklist

Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: Scott Brick Release Date: June 2005

Lew Fonseca is a man who does things for people. He makes small problems go away and tries to keep the larger ones from landing his clients in jail. He finds deadbeats, errant spouses, and generally keeps the populace of Sarasota on the up-and-up. New Lew is faced with one case that will try his patience…and another that may break his heart. The first involves an elderly woman who swears she's witnessed a murder in her old-age home despite the fact that everyone she tells her story to, her family, the hospital staff, and finally the cops, all tell her that it just couldn't have happened. The other has Lew trying to find out the identity of a hit-and-run driver who killed a fourteen-year-old boy. This task dredges up old memories and a lot of pain, for Lew fled Chicago years ago, after a drunk driver killed his beloved wife. As Lew begins to dig deeper into both cases, he finds that they are tied together in ways he can't hope to untangle. And when someone tries to run him down, Lew knows that he's getting close to some nasty home truths and he is going to have to get the answers if he is to survive.

Retribution Audiobook

Retribution

Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: Scott Brick Release Date: August 2003

By the summer of 1944 it was clear that Japan's defeat was inevitable, but how the drive to victory would be achieved remained unclear. The ensuing drama - that ended in Japan's utter devastation - was acted out across the vast theater of Asia in massive clashes between army, air, and naval forces. In recounting these extraordinary events, Max Hastings draws incisive portraits of MacArthur, Mao, Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, and other key figures of the war in the East. But he is equally adept in his portrayals of the ordinary soldiers and sailors caught in the bloodiest of campaigns. With its piercing and convincing analysis, Retribution is a brilliant telling of an epic conflict from a master military historian at the height of his powers.
