Author: Ted Dekker Narrator: Rob Lamont Release Date: June 2003

The nightmare has just begun... your world has changed forever. “Evil is beyond the reach of no man.” “But can a man remove himself beyond the reach of evil?” Kevin asked. “Indeed,” Dr. Francis said. “Can man step beyond evil’s reach? I think not. Not in this lifetime.” “Then all men are condemned to a life of evil,” Kevin said. “A lifetime struggle with evil, not a life of evil,” Dr. Francis clarified. Imagine answering your cell phone one day to a male voice that gives you three minutes to confess your sin. If you don’t, the madman, Slater, will blow your car to smithereens. You barely manage to exit heavy traffic and ditch the car when, precisely three minutes later, your car blows sky high. The media and police descend on the scene; your world has just changed forever. So begins the nightmare that grows with progressively higher stakes. There ís another phone call, another riddle. The cycle will not stop until the world discovers the secret of your sin, but you don’t have a clue what that sin is. If not for Jennifer, the brilliant FBI agent working to corner Slater, you would indeed go mad.

Now available for the first time in audiobook format, Necroscope III: The Source is the third installment in the Necroscope® series by horror master Brian Lumley. This story traces the battle between Harry Keogh and the horrifying Vamphyri on their home ground, an alien landscape of looming towers, impossible cliffs, and ravenous vampire-beasts. Russia's Ural Mountains hide a deadly secret: a supernatural portal to the country of the vampires. Soviet scientists and ESP-powered spies, in a secret military base, study the portal--and the powerfully evil creatures that emerge from it, intent on ravaging mankind. When Jazz Simmons, a British agent sent to infiltrate the base, is captured by the KGB espionage squad and forced through the portal, his last message tells Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, that the vampires are preparing for a mass invasion. Harry has only one option--to strike first. He must carry the human-vampire war to the vampire's own lands. But his strongest psychic power will be useless there. What good is the power to summon the dead in a country where nothing ever dies, where every man, woman, and child become half-dead servants of the Vamphyri?

The Twelve Dogs of Christmas

Author: David Rosenfelt Narrator: Grover Gardner Release Date: October 2016

Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter usually tries to avoid taking on new cases at all costs. But this time, he's happy—eager, even—to take the case that's just come his way. Andy's long-time friend Martha “Pups” Boyer takes in stray puppies that the local dog rescue center can't handle, raises them until they're old enough to adopt, and then finds good homes for them. Not everyone admires the work Pups does as much as Andy does, however. With Christmas just around the corner, one of Pups's neighbors has just reported Pups to the city for having more than the legal number of pets in her home under the local zoning laws. Andy happily takes Pups's case, and he feels confident in a positive outcome. Who could punish someone for rescuing puppies, after all, especially at Christmastime? But things get a lot more complicated when Randy Hennessey, the neighbor who registered the complaint against Pups, turns up dead. Pups had loudly and publicly threatened Hennessey after he filed his complaint, and Pups was also the one to find his body. All the evidence seems to point to Pups as the killer, and suddenly Andy has a murder case on his hands. He doesn't believe Pups could be guilty, but as he starts digging deeper into the truth behind Hennessey's murder, Andy may find himself facing a killer more dangerous than he ever imagined. With his trademark wit, larger-than-life characters, and clever plotting, David Rosenfelt delivers another gripping mystery.

Author: Elizabeth Peters Narrator: Susan O'malley, Susan O. Malley, Susan O’malley Release Date: October 2008

The irascible husband of Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody demonstrates again why he has been nicknamed "Father of Curses." Denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor, Emerson is awarded instead the "pyramids" of Mazghunah: countless mounds of rubble in the midst of nowhere. Nothing in this barren spot seems worthy of interest-until an antiquities dealer is murdered in his Cairo shop. When a sinister Egyptian spotted at the crime scene turns up in Mazghunah, Amelia can't resist following his trail. There's a mysterious scrap of papyrus and a missing mummy case to investigate, while she keeps at least one eye on their precocious son Ramses and his Egyptian cat. But the digging turns truly dangerous when Amelia and Emerson look for answers in an ancient tomb-one that could become their grave.... "Elizabeth Peters' Mummy Case excels with Susan O'Malley's smooth narrative style, bringing alive elderly adventurer/investigator Amelia Peabody's probe of a Cairo antiques dealer's murder."-Reviewer's Bookwatch
