Conviction

Author: Richard North Patterson Narrator: Patricia Kalember Release Date: January 2005

When the body of nine-year old Thuy Sen is found in the San Francisco Bay, the police quickly charge Rennell and Payton Price with her grisly murder. A twelve-person jury, abetted by an incompetent defense lawyer, is nearly as quick to find the brothers guilty, and to sentence them both to die for their crimes. Fifteen years later, overworked pro bono laywer Teresa Peralta Paget, her husband Chris, and stepson Carlo, a recent Harvard law graduate, become convinced not only that Rennell didn't receive a fair trial but that he may well be innocent. Racing against the clock and facing enormous legal obstacles, Teresa, Chris, and Carlo desperately try to stay Rennell's execution, taking the case all the way to the Supreme Court, and to an enormously moving and powerful conclusion. From the Hardcover edition.

Puppet

Author: Joy Fielding Narrator: Laura Hicks Release Date: January 2005

Amanda Travis is a high-powered, twenty-eight-year-old lawyer whose greatest likes are spinning classes at her Palm Beach gym and a compliant jury.

Unfortunately, running from her past becomes a lot harder when one of her ex-husbands calls from her hometown of Toronto with the alarming news that her mother has shot and killed a complete stranger.

The Naked Detective Audiobook

The Naked Detective

Author: Laurence Shames Narrator: Ron McLarty Release Date: January 2005

Popular crime novelist Laurence Shames consistently draws favorable comparisons to Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen. In his Key West tales, Shames paints vivid, hilarious portraits of the sun-splashed "paradise" he calls home. The retired Pete Amsterdam isn't really a private investigator. But he has a license, a gun, and a listing in the phone book-all so he can write-off his wine cellar as an "office." While soaking in his hot tub and rethinking his earlier tennis match, the inevitable blonde in distress comes calling, and Pete is reluctantly pulled into his first case. Feeling trapped by the conventions of detective stories, Pete stumbles his way through the Key West crime scene, hardly realizing the danger he's in. The Naked Detective is vintage Shames-full of the biting wit, absurd scenarios, and quirky characters that recall his earlier works, such as Scavenger Reef and Mangrove Squeeze. Ron McLarty's narration captures the off-beat, colorful island and its inhabitants and brings them fully to life.

Someone in the House

Author: Barbara Michaels Narrator: Barbara Rosenblat Release Date: January 2005

Mangrove Squeeze Audiobook

Mangrove Squeeze

Author: Laurence Shames Narrator: Richard Ferrone Release Date: January 2005

Laurence Shames' funny, elegantly written, and hip thrillers have topped best-seller lists across the country, and earned him a leading role as a writer of "Florida noir" with Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen. When Island Frigate advertising rep Suki Sperakis decides to write an exposE on the Key West black market, she is strangled and left for dead in the trunk of a car sinking slowly into the Gulf of Mexico. Soon her only chance at survival rests on the senile Sam Katz and octogenarian ex-mobster Bert the Shirt who must infiltrate the Russian Mafia posing as a gay couple from New York. Will Bert and Sam succeed, or is Suki doomed to once again sleep with the fishes? Richard Ferrone brings every character to life-from the cigar-smoking Island Frigate editor to a man named Pineapple who lives in a fiberglass hotdog-to help make Mangrove Squeeze one of Shames' sharpest, tangiest, and most engaging audiobooks to date. Don't miss these other exciting titles by Laurence Shames: Sunburn, and Florida Straits.

The Stupidest Angel Audiobook

The Stupidest Angel

Author: Christopher Moore Narrator: Tony Roberts Release Date: December 2004

Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit. But not everybody is feeling the joy. Little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a holiday miracle. No, he's not on his deathbed. But Josh is sure that he saw Santa take a shovel to the head, and now the seven-year-old has only one prayer: Please, Santa, come back from the dead. But hold on! There's an angel waiting in the wings. (Wings, get it?) It's none other than the Archangel Raziel come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs granting. Unfortunately, our angel's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch, and before you can say "Kris Kringle" he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen. Only Christopher Moore, the man who brought you the outrageous lost gospel Lamb and the hysterical fish tale Fluke, could have devised a new holiday classic that tugs at the heartstrings and serves up a healthy slice of fruitcake to boot.
