Death Match Audiobook

Death Match

Author: Lincoln Child Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: July 2016

Lewis and Lindsay Thorpe were the perfect couple: young, attractive, and ideally matched. But the veil of perfection can mask many blemishes. When the Thorpes are found dead in their tasteful Flagstaff living room (having committed double suicide), alarms go off in the towering Manhattan offices of Eden Incorporated, the high-tech matchmaking company whose spectacular success, and legendary secrecy, has inspired awe around the world. The Thorpes, few people knew, were more than the quintessential happy couple - they were Eden's first perfect match. A short time later, Christopher Lash, a gifted former FBI forensic psychologist, receives an urgent plea from Eden to perform a quick - and quiet - investigation into the deaths. Lash's psychological autopsy reveals nothing suspicious, but inadvertently dredges up the memories of a searing personal tragedy he has kept at bay for years. The situation changes suddenly when a second Eden couple is found dead - by all appearances, another double suicide. Now Eden - particularly Richard Silver, the company's brilliant and reclusive founder - has no choice but to grant Lash unprecedented access to its most guarded secrets if he is to have any chance of determining what is going wrong. The hidden world he discovers is a stunning labyrinth of artificial intelligence, creative genius, and a melding of technology that does indeed, to Lash's surprise, deliver on Eden's promise to its clients: the guarantee of a perfect, lifelong mate. But Lash's involvement in the investigation becomes more personal and dangerous than he could have imagined, nearly as soon as it begins. With tremendous imagination and skill, master thriller-writer Lincoln Child renders a setting too frighteningly believable not to be real. Infused with relentless suspense and a riveting pace, DEATH MATCH is Child at his best.

Grass Roots Audiobook

Grass Roots

Author: Stuart Woods Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: February 2012

Will Lee has returned to his roots to kick off his campaign for the Senate. A prominent lawyer, he has come back to his hometown of Delano, Georgia, to plan his strategies...and to argue an explosively controversial case that could seriously damage his political career. For Delano is a town with a dark secret - a smoldering hotbed of racial hatred and moral outrage, held in the thrall of a sinister white-supremacist group called The Elect... a breeding ground for violent, evil forces that will stop at nothing to keep the candidate out of office. At first, Will Lee was running for the Senate. But now he is running for his life.

The Noonday Demon Audiobook

The Noonday Demon

Author: Andrew Solomon Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: February 2012

The Noonday Demon is an examination of depression written in the first and third person. Drawing on the author's own experience of the illness, medical literature, interviews with hundreds of other sufferers, doctors, policy makers, drug designers, scientists, sociologists, philosophers, lawyers, politicians, and many other sources, the book reveals depression at both the personal and the cultural level. The first part of the book is about what constitutes depression and how people deal with it. Chapters confront the problems of defining the illness; breakdowns and their immediate consequences; biochemical and psychodynamic treatments; alternative treatments from the experimental to the wacky; special populations including the elderly, women, racial minorities, etc.; addiction and its bearing on depression; and suicide as an issue distinct from depression. The second part of the book examines the current state of the complaint; the problem of depression among the poor; the politics of the illness at both the legislative and the bureaucratic level; the evolutionary perspective on the disease; and the moral questions posed by biological explanations of mental illness. The book ultimately looks at the boundary between disease and personality, demonstrating that we are narrowing our definition of mental health and thereby causing mental illness. It also examines the matter of character, showing that recovery from mental illness involves not only biological treatment, but also strength, endurance, will, and love. Solomon's contribution to an understanding both of depression and of the human condition is absolutely stunning. He balances his astonishingly lucid and candid account of his own experience with profound empathy and insight into the experiences of other depressives -- some from similar backgrounds, some unutterably different -- and with a truly agile navigation of the relevant fields of study from pychopharmocology to philosophy. Like Simon Schama or Jacques Barzun or Robert Hughes, he uses a single lens -- depression -- to shape a sweeping work of immense cultural significance.

The Looking Glass Audiobook

The Looking Glass

Author: Richard Paul Evans Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: February 2012

When I started to write The Looking Glass, I intended to create a story about the healing power of hope and love. But as this story developed, a message began to emerge that I had not foreseen, a message about the distorted mirror in which we view ourselves, binding ourselves with shackles of self-doubt and fear. The Looking Glass is aptly named, for it is about seeing the reality of ourselves: to see a true reflection of who we are. It is the story of Hunter Bell, a Presbyterian minister turned gambler, and the founder of a gold camp named Bethel. (Which you may remember was Esther's hometown in The Locket.) He is running from the bitter memories of his past, his ministry, and ultimately, from his God. Venturing into a blizzard to chase away wolves drawn close to his cabin by hunger, Hunter finds a beautiful young woman in the snow, wounded by the wolves and half dead with the cold. Her name is Quaye McGandley, and she is an Irish woman sold into marital slavery to a brutal husband who then brought her to America against her will. As Hunter nurses her back to health, he finds that his tender ministrations to Quaye have opened his heart to his greatest fear -- that he might love again. It is my hope that you, and those with whom you share my book, might through its message better see the divinity within yourself and the reality of who you are: worthy of love, gentleness, and grace. With hope, Richard Paul Evans

3-D Negotiation: Powerful Tools for Changing the Game in Your Most Important Deals Audiobook

3-D Negotiation: Powerful Tools for Changing the Game in Your Most Important Deals

Author: David Lax, James Sebenius Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: August 2011

Stuck in a win-win versus win-lose debate, most negotiation books focus on face-to-face tactics. Yet table tactics are only the first dimension of Lax and Sebenius's pathbreaking 3-D Negotiation approach, developed from their decades of doing deals and analyzing great dealmakers. Moves in their second dimension deal design systematically unlock economic and non-economic value by creatively structuring agreements. But what sets the 3-D approach apart is its third dimension: setup. Before showing up at a bargaining session, 3-D Negotiators ensure that the right parties have been approached, in the right sequence, to address the right interests, under the right expectations, and facing the right consequences of walking away if there is no deal. This new arsenal of moves away from the table often exerts the greatest impact on the negotiated outcome. Packed with practical steps and cases, 3-D NEGOTIATION demonstrates how superior setup moves plus insightful deal designs can enable you to reach remarkable agreements at the table, unattainable by standard tactics.

Culture Code: An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy As They Do Audiobook

Culture Code: An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy As They Do

Author: Clotaire Rapaille Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: August 2011

Internationally revered cultural anthropologist and marketing expert Clotaire Rapaille reveals for the first time the techniques he has used to improve profitability and practices for dozens of Fortune 100 companies. His groundbreaking revelations shed light not just on business but on the way every human being acts and lives around the world. Rapaille's breakthrough notion is that we acquire a silent system of codes as we grow up within our culture. These culture codes invisibly shape how we behave in our personal lives, even when we are completely unaware of our motives. We can learn to crack these Codes and achieve new understanding of why we do the things we do. Rapaille has used the Culture Code to help Chrysler build the PT Cruiser, the most successful American car launch in recent memory, helped Procter & Gamble design its campaign for Folger's coffee, one of the longest-lasting and most successful advertising campaigns. He has helped GE, AT&T, Boeing, Honda, Kellogg, and L'Oreal improve their bottom line at home and abroad. Now, in this audiobook he uses it to reveal why Americans act distinctly like Americans and what makes us different from the world around us. Understanding the "codes "gives us unprecedented freedom over our lives. It lets us do business in dramatically new ways. And it finally explains why people around the world really are different and reveals the hidden clues to understanding us all.

Berserkers: The Beginning Audiobook

Berserkers: The Beginning

Author: Fred Saberhagen Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: July 2011

There had been a battle, and the Berserker had met some terrible opponent, taking an awful wound. The cavity reached through level after level of machinery, deck after deck of armor, stopped only by the last inner defenses of the buried, unliving heart. The Berserker had survived, and crushed its enemy. When Hemphill saw the blasted cavity, he felt a shrinking fear, stunned by the realization of just what it means to fight the Berserker. Hemphill, his pistol ready, his right arm instinctively around Maria, had a bomb and two hundred feet of cord tied around his left arm when he recognized the Berserker's great scar for what it was. The damned thing had survived a level of attempted destruction that rendered the bomb under his arm only a pathetic toy. 'The Berserker stories are war stories, but war stories in the tradition of The Red Badge of Courage and All Quiet on the Western Front.''Baltimore Evening Sun

Triangle: The Fire That Changed America Audiobook

Triangle: The Fire That Changed America

Author: David Von Drehle Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: June 2011

"An amazing, long-forgotten tale. A riveting history written with flair and precision."-Bob Woodward In one of the most honored books of the year, David Von Drehle transports us to a beautiful spring day in March 1911 when 146 workers-most of them young immigrant women-lost their lives. Employees had just begun preparing to leave the Triangle shirtwaist factory in New York's Greenwich Village when a fire broke out and within minutes consumed the building's upper three stories.It was the worst workplace disaster in New York City history until 9/11. "Animated by vigorous, descriptive prose, Triangle carries the reader deep into a portrait of early-twentieth-century New York . . . when colorful machine politicians battled socialists, suffragists and upright progressive reformers for the soul of an increasingly immigrant city." -Chicago Tribune "Von Drehle's spellbinding and detailed reconstruction of the disaster is complemented by an equally gripping account of the factory owners' subsequent manslaughter trial (they got off scot-free), drawing on court records he helped unearth." -The New York Times "Behind the fire lay the extraordinary history of sweatshop labor and the fledgling beginnings of union organizing. The heart of Von Drehle's book is its detailed, nuanced, mesmerizing description of the fire. The descriptions . . .leave a reader staring into space." -Los Angeles Times Book Review Praise for David Von Drehle's Triangle: New York Times Extended List Best Seller • New York Times Book Review Notable Book •Washington Post Book World Rave of the Year • New York Public Library Book of the Year • New York Society Library Book of the Year • Fresh Air Critic's Top Book of 2003 • Hadassah Top Ten Jewish Best Seller • ALA Notable Book of the Year • Winner of the 2004 Christopher Award • Winner of the 2004 Sidney Hillman Foundation Award •Amazon Top 50 Books of the Year • San Jose Mercury News Best Book • Rocky Mountain News Best Book • Providence Journal Critic's Choice Cover design by Marcia Salo and Charles Rue Woods Cover photograph courtesy of Culver Pictures Photo imaging by Michael Tedesco Grove Press books are distributed by Publishers Group West Reading Group Guide available online at www.groveatlantic.com PRINTED IN THE USA 0904

Time for the Stars

Author: Robert A. Heinlein Narrator: Barrett Whitener Release Date: January 2011

Travel to other planets is now a reality, and with overpopulation stretching the resources of Earth, the necessity of finding habitable worlds is growing ever more urgent. There's a problem though—because the spaceships are slower than light, any communication between the exploring ships and Earth would take years. Tom and Pat are identical twin teenagers. As twins they've always been close, so close that it seemed like they could read each other's minds. When they are recruited by the Long Range Foundation, the twins find out that they can, indeed, peer into each other's thoughts. Along with other telepathic duos, they are enlisted to be the human transmitters and receivers that will keep the ships in contact with Earth. But there's a catch: one of the twins has to stay behind—and that one will grow old—while the other explores the depths of space and returns as a young man still. "One of the superb Heinlein stories that has excitement, urbanity, humanity, rationality, pace, understanding, and is a joy to read."—New York Times
