Kissed a Sad Goodbye

Author: Deborah Crombie Narrator: Jenny Sterlin Release Date: August 1999

Reminiscent of Ruth Rendell, multiple award-winning author Deborah Crombie creates graceful mysteries, resonating with lyrical prose, elegant suspense, and finely-drawn characters. This is her darkly irresistible tale of friendship shattered by shocking betrayal, and repercussions that echo down through the years. A stunningly beautiful young woman is found strangled in London's Mudchute Park, her clothing carefully arranged to preserve her modesty. With that unusual detail in mind, Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and his partner Sergeant Gemma James suspect the crime was more than a simple assault gone awry. As they collect the strange facts surrounding her death, they discover the victim's life was a mystery even to those who knew her best. Internationally-acclaimed author Deborah Crombie brilliantly weaves together events of World War II England with complex problems of present-day London. As British actor Jenny Sterlin's superb dramatization unfolds, you'll understand why this crime novel is as at home on the bookshelf with literary novels as it is with the most baffling whodunit.

McNally's Dilemma: An Archy McNally Novel Audiobook

McNally's Dilemma: An Archy McNally Novel

Author: Lawrence Sanders Narrator: Boyd Gaines Release Date: July 1999

Palm Beach private investigator Archy McNally takes on the murder of a socialite and uncovers a thorny tangle of blackmail and deceit, south Florida style. Playboy Geoffrey Williams is dead. But it's not a search for the killer that brings Archy McNally to the case; the lovely Melva Williams readily admits to the crime passionnel. After finding Geoff in a precarious position with an attractive young lady, she pulled the trigger on husband number two. It sounds like an open-and-shut case for McNally & Sons' Department of Discreet Inquiries until Melva asks Archy to shield her daughter, Veronica, from the press and paparazzi. Gallant Archy takes the case -- and escorts grown-up and gorgeous Veronica home to the McNally manse. Rumors fly, and some of them may be true. Veronica is no damsel in distress though, and she's certainly not sorry her stepfather is in the grave. When her story doesn't match Melva's, which doesn't match Geoff's, Archy realizes he does indeed have a dilemma on his hands. Someone's lying, and the one person who knows the truth -- Geoff's perky playmate -- has gotten away. A delectable combination of high society and high jinks, and featuring some of the most eccentric characters to populate Florida's Gold Coast, McNally's Dilemma is as witty and charming as Archy McNally himself.

But when the meticulously plotted launch goes fatally wrong, and payload specialist Penny High Eagle further complicates Jack's plan, he must confront unforeseen challenges both in space and on the ground.Writing with the detail and intelligence that only an insider could, Hickam takes us to places few have ever seen, strapping us into the cockpit of the shuttle and hurtling us into orbit and beyond. From the crackling tension of mission control to the savage emptiness of deep space, from the massive rocket engines capable of generating millions of pounds of thrust to the tiny killing machines awaiting a bygone era's orders to unleash their high-tech fury, here are the sights and science of space as you've never seen them before. A no-holds-barred joyride of a thriller, Back to the Moon confirms that Homer Hickam is a master storyteller like no other.

The Rogue Warrior: Real Team Audiobook

The Rogue Warrior: Real Team

Author: Richard Marcinko Narrator: Richard Marcinko Release Date: May 1999

"Richard Marcinko was the U.S. Navy's most unconventional warrior -- and its most deadly. A master practitioner of the "Let's Do It to Them Before They Do It to Us" school of survival, he was often as feared by his own high command as by the enemy. This brilliant, tough-as-nails military virtuoso of violence -- ambushes, booby, traps, exotic weaponry, high altitude parachute drops, underwater infiltrations, face-to-face killing -- rose through Navy ranks to create and command one of this country's most elite and secretive counterterrorist units, SEAL TEAM SIX. Now, in his own colorful voice, this thirty-year veteran recounts the story of the secret missions and Special Warfare madness that make up his harrowing worldwide military career. Here, too, he opens doors that have long been locked: the riveting truth about the mystery-shrouded Navy SEALS; what went on behind the scenes during the infamous Desert One hostage rescue attempt in Iran; and the stunning inside realities of the Granada invasion. Born on Thanksgiving Day, 1940, Dick Marcinko was raised in mining towns, housing projects, blue-collar bars, and on the streets. He quit school at seventeen and enlisted in a new life of thrill-seeking. He joined the Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams, which he calls ""a masochist's dream."" Then he attended over eighteen special-training schools, where he excelled in the lethal, survival and leadership skills that would gain him entrance into the upper strata of military warfare: the SEALS. Marcinko was almost in humanly tough, and proved it on hair-raising missions across Vietnam and a war-torn world: blowing up supply junks, charging through minefields, jumping at 19,000 feet with a chute that wouldn't open, fighting hand-to-hand in a hellhole jungle, and experiencing the tragedy of watching a buddy die in his arms. He was such a threatening force on the killing fields of Vietnam that the enemy posted a reward for his death. For the Pentagon, Marcinko organized the Navy's first counterterrorist unit, the legendary SEAL TEAM SIX. One of the most feared weapons against terrorism in the world, the Team went on classified missions from Central America to the Middle East, the North Sea, Africa and beyond. Out of this success, Marcinko was tapped to create the explosive unit know as Red Cell, a dirty-dozen team of the military's most accomplished and decorated counterterrorists. Their unbelievable job was to become terrorists themselves -- to test the defense of the Navy's most secure facilities and installations. The Navy was actually going to pay go-for-broke Marcinko to wreak havoc. The result was predictable: all hell broke loose. In Rogue Warrior, Marcinko recounts his searing adventures in the special branches of the military reserved for a handpicked few. Here is the hard-working hero . . . the killer who saw beyond the blood to ultimate justice . . . and the decorated warrior who became such a maverick that the Navy brass wanted his head on a pole, and for a time, got it. This, and more, is Marcinko, a man made for war.

A Darker Place Audiobook

A Darker Place

Author: Laurie King, Laurie R. King Narrator: Alyssa Bresnahan Release Date: April 1999

Laurie R. King has won an Edgar Award and places on best-seller lists for her mysteries. Fans are addicted to her two remarkably successful series, one featuring San Francisco policewoman Kate Martinelli, and the other focusing on Mary Russell, Sherlock Holmes' young wife and partner. A Darker Place stands alone. It is a journey into the secretive world of cults. Professor Anne Waverly teaches religious studies at a respected university. Middle-aged and slightly lame, she spends her days in lecture halls and offices. But occasionally she works for the FBI. As Ana Wakefield, an eager seeker of higher truths, she infiltrates cults. Now, leaving the security of academia, she is on her way to Arizona in a battered VW bus. Her assignment is to investigate a group called Change. As Ana gathers information, she is pulled toward a fiery confrontation with the charismatic leader of the cult. But her growing attachment for two of the group's children may require her to make a greater sacrifice. Through Alyssa Bresnahan's rich voice, Ana, FBI agents, and cult members stand out against the darkly compelling fabric of the text.

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.

Rogue Warrior: Operation: Delta Audiobook

Rogue Warrior: Operation: Delta

Author: John Weisman, Richard Marcinko Narrator: Richard Marcinko Release Date: February 1999

The Rogue Warrior is invading Germany with a blitzkrieg of bravado. His secret assignment: recover a pair of U.S. ADM's-Atomic Demolition Munitions-lost in the Rhine Valley. Yet, what begins as a simple SEAL mission explodes in his face when terrorists visit the cache site. With scandals at home and fresh hotbeds of political and military tensions igniting all over the world, America's diplomatic priorities are everywhere but eastern Europe-and the Rogue Warrior and his SEALs must take matters into their own hands. But not even Marcinko is aware that a cabal of ultranational extremists-led by Lothar Beck, a billionaire defense contractor-is ready to take advantage of the U.S.'s global distractions. Beck and his subversive cadre believe the time is ripe for their great nation to emerge as Europe's first superpower-a true Fourth Reich. They have the money and influence to make it happen. And thanks to Cold War stockpiling of nuclear and conventional weapons on German soil, they have the arms. Fortunately Marcinko has some firepower of his own, and the manpower to deliver it the way the God of war intended: with maximum prejudice and extreme efficiency. He and his elite SEALs will have to wade through tango cells of skinheads, neo-Nazis, Russian mobsters, and Middle Eastern terrorist before they get the scent of the real powerbrokers. But once they do, it's time to go hunting-with no bag limit.
