Shamed: A Kate Burkholder Novel Audiobook

Shamed: A Kate Burkholder Novel

Author: Linda Castillo Narrator: Kathleen Mcinerney Release Date: July 2019

In this gripping thriller from New York Times bestselling author Linda Castillo, a devastating murder exposes an Amish family's tortured past. The peaceful town of Painters Mill is shattered when an Amish grandmother is brutally murdered on an abandoned farm. When Chief of Police Kate Burkholder arrives on the scene, she learns that the woman's seven-year-old granddaughter is gone, abducted in plain sight. Kate knows time is against her-the longer the girl is missing, the less likely her safe return becomes. The girl's family is a pillar of the Amish community, well-respected by all. But Kate soon realizes they're keeping secrets-and the sins of their past may be coming back to haunt them. What are they hiding and why? Kate's investigation brings her to an isolated Old Order Amish settlement along the river, a community where family is everything and tradition is upheld with an iron fist. But the killer is close behind, drawing more victims into a twisted game of revenge. Left behind at each new crime scene are cryptic notes that lead Kate to a haunting and tragic secret. What she uncovers threatens to change everything she thought she knew about the family she's fighting for, the Amish community as a whole-and her own beliefs. As time to find the missing girl runs out, Kate faces a harrowing choice that will test her convictions and leave one family forever changed. Praise for Kathleen McInerney as Kate Burkholder: 'McInerney's masterly technique makes aural sense of the plain and kind Amish people bewildered by the violence, thuggery, and corruption that have come among them. McInerney's characters are alive, all human and believable.' - AudioFile Magazine on Among the Wicked 'Kathleen McInerney does an excellent job of portraying this diverse cast, especially the Amish, who she instills with a shy, quiet dignity, and she handles the Pennsylvania Dutch language with the ease of a native.' - Publishers Weekly on Pray for Silence

Murder by Munchausen: A Sci-Fi Police Procedural Techno-Thriller Audiobook

Murder by Munchausen: A Sci-Fi Police Procedural Techno-Thriller

Author: M.T. Bass Narrator: Jason Arnold Release Date: July 2019

A police procedural thriller ripped from future headlines! '...packed with action and unexpected developments...fast-paced, entertaining...' - Kirkus Reviews "...a great story that blended a couple genres together beautifully. I easily fell into the story and didn't want to quit until it abruptly ended. I'm really glad that I have the next book in the series. I can't wait to see what Jake, EC, and Maddie get into next." - J.D. Bronder Book Reviews  (4 of 5 Stars) "The pace of the book was fast and there were several interesting characters to meet along the way...You'd better take a deep breath before you dive into this one."  -Frank Frission Reviews  (4 of 5 Stars) After Jake shoots and kills a murder suspect who turns out to be the son of a powerful city councilman, he finds himself demoted to the Artificial Crimes Unit, tracking down androids hacked and programmed to be hit men.  When his case of an "extra-judicial" divorce settlement takes a nasty turn with DNA from a hundred-year-old murder in Boston and a signature that harkens back to the very first serial killer ever in London, Jake finds himself tangled up in the brutal slayings of prostitutes being investigated by his former Robbery/Homicide partner, Maddie--who is now his lover. 'It might not make sense, but the beloved Media tags it 'Murder by Munchausen.' For a price, there are hackers out there who will reprogram a synthoid to do your dirty work. The bad news: no fingerprints or DNA left at the crime scene. The good news-at least for us-is that they're like missiles: once they hit their target, they're usually as harmless as empty brass. The trick is to get them before they melt down their core OS data, so you can get the unit into forensics for analysis and, hopefully, an arrest.' [excerpt from Murder by Munchausen] Artificial Intelligence? Fuhgeddaboudit! Artificial Evil has a name...Munchausen.
