The Man Who Wouldn't Die: A Novel Audiobook

The Man Who Wouldn't Die: A Novel

Author: A. B. Jewell Narrator: Kevin T. Collins Release Date: August 2019

'HBO's Silicon Valley meets The Big Sleep' (Mark Maskell Smith): A hilarious neo-noir send-up of Silicon Valley, penned by an anonymous insider. "DOES FOR SILICON VALLEY WHAT CARL HIAASEN DID FOR FLORIDA." -Tim Dorsey "THE MAN WHO WOULDN'T DIE IS DASHIELL HAMMETT 2.0: THE CLASSIC HARDBOILED DETECTIVE NOVEL, UPDATED FOR 21ST CENTURY SILICON VALLEY AND MADE HILARIOUS." -Brad Parks Silicon Valley scion Captain Don Donogue is dead under mysterious circumstances. In fact, he might've well have been murdered. Just ask Captain Don himself. He's been sending messages about his suspicious death from beyond the grave. Yep, he's been tweeting from the afterlife. Or so it seems.  Could life-after-death be Silicon Valley's latest innovation? Our bodies die but our souls and social media accounts are eternal? This is the mystery that confronts the only sane person left in a region gone mad with greed, William Fitzgerald. Fitch. He's a world-class detective, tough, stoic, carries a big fist and a flip phone. He's a bad fit for Silicon Valley, where the law firms have drive-thru windows manned by barristeristas (who serve instant coffee and instant patents); attractive women aren't MILF's but TELFs (Tech Executives I'd Like To Fund); and couples are so anxious to get into the best free-play kindergartens that they get on the waiting list as soon as they freeze their sperm and eggs for later use. One day, a woman knocks on Fitch's door. She's got a handful of cash and a wild story: She says that her father was Captain Don, or is Captain Don. He was killed, or maybe not. He's tweeting from beyond. Fitch takes the case and goes into the belly of the valley, discovering that life and death, well, sometimes they're just another transaction.... Original, clever, and hysterical, The Man Who Wouldn't Die is the Carl Hiaasen of Silicon Valley and neo-noir at its unforgettable best.

When a 911 dispatcher picks up an emergency call to hear her daughter on the line, her worst nightmare becomes reality. Laurie Ahmadi has worked as a 911 police dispatcher in her quiet Northern California town for almost two decades, but nothing in her nearly twenty years of experience could prepare her for the worst call of her career-her teenage daughter, Jojo, is on the other end of the line. She is drugged, disoriented, and in pain, and even though the whole police department springs into action, there is nothing Laurie can do to help. Jojo, who has been sexually assaulted, doesn't remember how she ended up at the home of Kevin Leeds, a pro football player famous for his work with the Citizens Against Police Brutality movement, though she insists he would never hurt her. And she has no idea where her best friend, Harper, who was with her earlier in the evening, could be. As Jojo and Laurie begin digging into Harper's private messages on social media to look for clues to her whereabouts, they uncover a conspiracy far bigger than they ever could have imagined. With Kevin's freedom on the line and the chances of finding Harper unharmed slipping away, Laurie and Jojo begin to realize that they can't trust anyone to find Harper except themselves, not even the police department they've long considered family . . . and time is running out.

Tin Badges: A Novel Audiobook

Tin Badges: A Novel

Author: Lorenzo Carcaterra Narrator: Pete Simonelli Release Date: August 2019

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Sleepers and The Wolf, hailed as "simply the best" (Steve Berry) and "one of the most intriguing writers around" (Newsweek). . . .   A top NYPD detective is pulled out of retirement to take down a notorious drug dealer. But will he risk the only family he's ever had to crack the case? As one of the NYPD's most trusted "tin badges"-retired detectives brought in to solve cases that are beyond the reach of the everyday force-Tank Rizzo has faced off against some of the city's toughest criminals without breaking a sweat. To tackle a case involving a dangerous kingpin known as Gonzo, Tank turns to his best friend and ex-partner, Pearl; a former mobster living out a seemingly quiet retirement as the owner of Tank's favorite Italian restaurant; and a team of expert misfits he would trust with his life. But Gonzo will stop at nothing to defend the empire he's built, and won't hesitate to make it personal. Then Tank gets a call telling him that his brother and sister-in-law, estranged from him for many years, have been killed in a horrific car accident. Tank is the only family left for his orphaned teenage nephew, Chris, although he knows his lifestyle is ill-suited to win him father of the year. Chris moves in with Tank, and the two circle each other warily. It's only when Chris reveals an interest in true crime and a genius-level skill with computers that they begin to bond. Chris's skills may be exactly what Tank's team needs to take Gonzo down-but getting him involved could put his life at risk. Advance praise for Tin Badges "Carcaterra capably combines his trademark adrenaline-fueled action with the emotion involved in Tank taking on a parental role for a sometimes surly teen. All this needs, after a cliff-hanger close, is a sequel, and, fortunately, one is promised." -Booklist "Another gem from a writer who has earned his spot at the top echelon of suspense masters . . . Everything here leaps from the page, never stinting on the harsh reality, delivering a spicy, smart, and entertaining adventure."-Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of the Cotton Malone series
