Author: Anthony Sciarratta Narrator: Curt Bonnem Release Date: June 2020

In 1970s New York, a neurotic Italian American man is inspired to write a novel about his love affair with a quirky Broadway actress who inspires him to pursue his lifelong dream. Michael Coniglio is at his wit's end. His girlfriend, Angela, announces in front of the local coffee shop crowd that she has a new lover. The emotional fallout leads him to lose his office job, giving his boss the long-awaited excuse to fire him. Michael goes home to his parents looking for support and professes his childhood dream only for his father to remind Michael that he will never amount to anything. Just as Michael is about to give up on life, he meets a woman who changes everything. The chatty and quirky Elvira Vaughn brings flavor to his world. The innocent, bright eyed, artsy young woman ran from an abusive home to become a Broadway actress in crime-riddled New York City. Suffering from the depression of her past, the now thirty-year-old looks to a higher power for an answer.

Firebird

Author: Mercedes Lackey Narrator: Curt Bonnem Release Date: May 2020

In Mercedes Lackey's Firebird, Ilya, son of a Russian prince, is largely ignored by his father and tormented by his larger, older brothers. His only friends are three old people: a priest, a magician, and a woman who toils in the palace dairy. From them Ilya learns faith, a smattering of magic, and the power of love-all of which he will need desperately, for his life is about to be turned upside-down. The prince's magnificent cherry orchard is visited at midnight by the legendary Firebird, whose wings are made of flame. Ilya's brothers' attempts to capture the magical creature fail. When Ilya tries to catch the Firebird, he sees her as a beautiful woman and earns a magical gift: the speech of animals. Banished, the young man journeys through a fantastical Russia full of magical mazes, enchanted creatures, and untold dangers. As happens in the best fairy tales, Ilya falls in love with an enchanted princess, but to win her freedom will be no easy task.

The Gringa Audiobook

The Gringa

Author: Andrew Altschul Narrator: Curt Bonnem Release Date: March 2020

Leonora Gelb came to Peru to make a difference. A passionate and idealistic Stanford grad, she left a life of privilege to fight poverty and oppression, but her beliefs are tested when she falls in with violent revolutionaries. While death squads and informants roam the streets and suspicion festers among the comrades, Leonora plans a decisive act of protest-until her capture in a bloody government raid, and a sham trial that sends her to prison for life. Ten years later, Andres-a failed novelist turned expat-is asked to write a magazine profile of "La Leo." As his personal life unravels, he struggles to understand Leonora, to reconstruct her involvement with the militants, and to chronicle Peru's tragic history. At every turn he's confronted by violence and suffering, and by the consequences of his American privilege. Is the real Leonora an activist or a terrorist? Cold-eyed conspirator or naïve puppet? And who is he to decide? In this powerful and timely new novel, Andrew Altschul maps the blurred boundaries between fact and fiction, author and text, resistance and extremism. Part coming-of-age story and part political thriller, The Gringa asks what one person can do in the face of the world's injustice.

The Heirs of Babylon Audiobook

The Heirs of Babylon

Author: Glen Cook Narrator: Curt Bonnem Release Date: February 2020

The dystopian politics of 1984 meet the naval warship backdrop of The Last Ship in fantasy master Glen Cook's reissued first novel, available for the first time in decades. It is 2193, and still the war continues. Two hundred years after nuclear and chemical weapons have nearly annihilated the global population, the last of mankind struggles on in isolated communities. Law and order is carried out by the Political Office, black-clad police who rule through fear and violence, commanding the world's survivors how to think, how to act, and when to obey the call to the Gathering: the ritual massing for war against an unknown and unseen Enemy. Now the call has come, and all nations must pay tribute. Kurt Ranke is a young man eking out an existence in the ruins of former Germany with his pregnant wife. But when the Gathering is called, he boards the decrepit destroyer Jäger-a once-mighty warship now more than two centuries old. Antiquated, broken-down, and running on steam, it wallows through uncharted waters carrying Ranke and a reluctant and ragtag group of soldiers en route to the Final Meeting: a battle from which it's rumored none have ever returned . . .

What Burns Audiobook

What Burns

Author: Dale Peck Narrator: Chelsea Stephens, Curt Bonnem Release Date: November 2019

The first collection of short fiction from Lambda Award-winning novelist Dale Peck spans twenty-five years of writing, including two O. Henry Award winners and the recipient of a Pushcart Prize. The stories in What Burns examine the extremes of desire against a backdrop of family, class, and mortality. In 'Bliss,' a young man befriends the convicted felon who murdered his mother when he was only a child. In 'Not Even Camping Is Like Camping Anymore,' a teenage boy fends off the advances of a five-year-old his mother babysits. And in 'Dues,' a man discovers that everything he owns is borrowed from someone else-including his time on earth. Walking the tightrope between tenderness and violence that has defined Peck's work since the publication of his first novel, Martin and John, through his most recent, Night Soil, What Burns reveals Peck's mastery of the short form.

Cybercrime Investigators Handbook Audiobook

Cybercrime Investigators Handbook

Author: Graeme Edwards Narrator: Curt Bonnem Release Date: October 2019

Cyber attacks perpetrated against businesses, governments, organizations, and individuals have been occurring for decades. Many attacks are discovered only after the data has been exploited or sold on the criminal markets. Cyber attacks damage both the finances and reputations of businesses and cause damage to the ultimate victims of the crime. From the perspective of the criminal, the current state of inconsistent security policies and lax investigative procedures is a profitable and low-risk opportunity for cyber attacks. They can cause immense harm to individuals or businesses online and make large sums of money-safe in the knowledge that the victim will rarely report the matter to the police. For those tasked with probing such crimes in the field, information on investigative methodology is scarce. While there are high-quality manuals for conducting digital examinations on a device or network that has been hacked, the Cybercrime Investigators Handbook is the first guide on how to commence an investigation from the location the offence occurred and collect the evidence necessary to locate and prosecute the offender. This valuable contribution to the field teaches listeners to locate, lawfully seize, preserve, examine, interpret, and manage the technical evidence that is vital for effective cybercrime investigation.
