God’s Eye Audiobook

God’s Eye

A demon… Every soul he claims is another chance to advance, until he can walk among us, look like us, make us believe in him. The only thing holding him back is… An angel… The rules of the realm bind him from fighting on the demon’s terms. But this is his chance to steal something away from the demon, to steal the thing the demon wants most… A woman who must choose… A woman who has been chosen, Katharine is suddenly a pawn in a game in which the rules and the stakes are beyond her comprehension. She must take a side even though she can’t tell angel from demon. And in the end, they will all be judged. “As heiress to a Fortune 500 company, Katherine is always suspicious of new men who enter her life. Little does she know that the two newest men in her life represent opposite sides of a force that threatens reality itself. Nor does she know she’s the key to the future. God’s Eye is another wonderful audio-movie recorded at Skyboat Studios. It’s a bit reminiscent of the Twilight movies, with its handsome monsters and beautiful women, but there’s more to it than surface beauty. The production is flawless, down to the funky noises and jarring sounds designed to awaken listeners en route to work in the morning. Stefan Rudnicki heads a cast that includes Kathe Mazur, Joe Barrett, and an all-too-short appearance by Ed Asner.”—AudioFile

Lucky You Audiobook

Lucky You

Author: Carl Hiaasen Narrator: Edward Asner Release Date: April 2008

Grange, Florida, is famous for its miracles--the weeping fiberglass Madonna, the Road-Stain Jesus, the stigmata man. And now it has JoLayne Lucks, unlikely winner of the state lottery. Unfortunately, JoLayne's winning ticket isn't the only one. The other belongs to Bodean Gazzer and his raunchy sidekick, Chub, who believe they're entitled to the whole $28 million jackpot. And they need it quickly, to start their own underground militia before NATO troops invade America. But JoLayne Lucks has her own plans for the Lotto money--an Eden-like forest in Grange must be saved from strip-malling. When Bode and Chub brutally assault her and steal her ticket, JoLayne vows to track them down, take it back--and get revenge. The only one who can help is Tom Krome, a big-city investigative journalist now bitterly consigned to writing frothy features for a midsized central Florida newspaper. With a persuasive nudge from JoLayne, Krome is about to become part of a story that's bigger and more bizarre than anything he's ever covered. Chasing two heavily armed psychopaths down the coast of Florida is reckless enough, but Tom's got other problems--the murderous attention of a jealous judge; an actress wife who turns fugitive to avoid divorce court; an editor who speaks in tongues; and Tom's own growing fondness for the future millionairess with whom he's risking his neck. The pursuit takes them from the surreal streets of Grange to a buzzard-infested island deep in Florida Bay, where they finally catch up with the fledgling militia--Chub, Bode Gazzer, a newly recruited convenience-store clerk and their baffled hostage, a Hooters waitress. The climax explodes with the hilarious mayhem that is Carl Hiaasen's hallmark. Lucky You is his funniest, most deliriously gripping novel yet.
