Waking the Dead Audiobook

Waking the Dead

Author: Scott Spencer Narrator: George Guidall Release Date: April 1999

Scott Spencer receives critical acclaim for his provocative, literate works like Men In Black, which was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon Audiobook

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

Author: Stephen King Narrator: Anne Heche Release Date: April 1999

What if the woods were full of them? And of course they were, the woods were full of everything you didn't like, everything you were afraid of and instinctively loathed, everything that tried to overwhelm you with nasty, no-brain panic. The brochure promised a "moderate-to-difficult" six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, where nine-year-old Trisha McFarland was to spend Saturday with her older brother, Pete, and her recently divorced mother. When she wanders off to escape their constant bickering, then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut through the woods, Trisha strays deeper into a wilderness full of peril and terror. Especially when night falls. Trisha has only her wits for navigation, only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fear. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox games and the gritty performances of her hero, number 36, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio's reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her -- her key to surviving an enemy known only by the slaughtered animals and mangled trees in its wake. A classic story that engages our emotions at the most primal level, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon explores our deep dread of the unknown and the extent to which faith can conquer it. It is a fairy tale grimmer than Grimm, but aglow with a girl's indomitable spirit.

8.4 Audiobook

8.4

Author: Peter Hernon Narrator: Campbell Scott Release Date: February 1999

The stories are the stuff of legend, and they are all true. In 1811 and 1812, three mammoth earthquakes measuring 8 on the Richter scale ruptured an area spanning twenty-four states and a third of the landmass of the United States. But today it's all a distant memory. Until the underground force reawakens. Near Mayfield, Kentucky, John Atkins, a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey, witnesses a tremor that stops him cold. The earth suddenly "liquefies" in fountains of mud and foul-smelling water. A church steeple topples; a grave yard is torn asunder. In Memphis, Atkins meets Elizabeth Holleran, a forensic seismologist, who has uncovered data showing a series of ominous simultaneous events: an uplift of the earth's crust, an unusually strong lunar pull, and near-record flood stages along the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. She's convinced a major earthquake is imminent. History is about to repeat itself. Atkins and Holleran believe their only hope is a mission deep into the earth to stop the geological time bomb. Joining forces with an elderly physicist, they descend into one of the Midwest's deepest coal mines. Unbeknownst to Atkins, a colleague is willing to kill to stop him. With cutting-edge science and unerring authenticity, Peter Hernon has crafted a novel of nerve-jangling suspense you will not soon forget.

But when Bernie painstakingly picks the lock, they discover somebody has already emptied the house-except for a valuable coin almost too hot to handle. Lawrence Block's finely-crafted plots and well-drawn characters have earned him three Edgar Awards and the title of Grand Master.

Dark Lady Audiobook

Dark Lady

Author: Richard North Patterson Narrator: Anne Twomey Release Date: January 1999

In Dark Lady, Richard North Patterson displays the mastery of setting, psychology, and story that makes him unique among writers of suspense, and one of today's most original and enthralling novelists. In Steelton, a struggling Midwestern city on the cusp of an economic turnaround, two prominent men are found dead within days of each other. One is Tommy Fielding, a senior officer of the company building a new baseball stadium, the city's hope for the future. The other is Jack Novak, the local drug dealers' attorney of choice. Fielding's death with a prostitute, from an overdose of heroin, seems accidental; Novak is apparently the victim of a ritual murder. But in each case the character of the dead man seems contradicted by the particulars of his death. Coincidence or connection? The question falls to Assistant County Prosecutor Stella Marz. Despite a traumatic breach with her alcoholic and embittered father, she has risen from a working-class background to become head of the prosecutor's homicide unit. A driven woman, she is called the Dark Lady by defense lawyers for her relentless, sometimes ruthless, style: in seven years only one case has gotten away from her, and only because the defendant took his own life. She has earned every inch of both her official and her off-the-record titles, and recently she's decided to go after another: to become the first woman elected Prosecutor of Erie County. But that was before the brutal murder of her ex-lover--Jack Novak. Novak's death leads her into a labyrinth where her personal and professional lives become dangerously intertwined. There is the possibility that Novak fixed drug cases for the city's crime lord, Vincent Moro, with the help of law enforcement personnel, and perhaps with someone in Stella's own office . . . the bitter mayoral race which threatens to undermine her own ambitions . . . her attraction to a colleague who may not be what he seems . . . the lingering, complicated effects of her painful affair with Novak . . . the growing certainty that she is being watched and followed. Making her way through a maze of corruption, deceit, and greed, trusting no one, Stella comes to believe that the search for the truth involves the bleak history of Steelton itself--a history that now endangers her future, and perhaps her life. For his uncanny dialogue, subtle delineation of character, and hypnotic narrative, critics have compared Richard North Patterson to John O'Hara and Dashiell Hammett. Now, in the character of the Dark Lady, he has created a woman as fascinating as her world is haunting. Dark Lady is his signature work.
