Yesterday's Murder Audiobook

Yesterday's Murder

Author: Craig Rice Narrator: Richard Poe Release Date: May 2021

From the author of the John J. Malone Mysteries: An estranged relative becomes heir to a Chesapeake Bay fortune-and his family's ghostly history. If it hadn't been for his great-uncle Philip, David Telefair would've grown up unwanted, forlorn, and poverty stricken in a New England parsonage. But for twenty years, David's generous benefactor paid for his education, yearly summer camps, living expenses as he grew older, and any amenities he ever needed. Odd that David had never spoken to him in his entire life. Odder still that after all this time, the aging Philip has now extended an invitation for David to meet him at his isolated estate on Telefair Island in the Chesapeake. From the moment David arrives, something feels ... off. First was the local minister's daughter's queer way of describing David's visit: inevitable; then the unaccountable loathing in the eyes of a Telefair servant; and finally a perilously pale female cousin who welcomes David with a warning: "You ought never to have come." This is less a family reunion than an ingeniously designed trap of murder, madness, and nasty family secrets. This stand-alone novel by Craig Rice, the first mystery writer ever to appear on the cover of Time magazine, is "an incredible tale ... where ghosts still pull the strings of human lives, where revenge and hate outlast a generation and punishment is insidiously prolonged ... a haunting sense of impending gloom" (Kirkus Reviews).

A Burning in My Bones: The Authorized Biography of Eugene H. Peterson, Translator of The Message Audiobook

A Burning in My Bones: The Authorized Biography of Eugene H. Peterson, Translator of The Message

Author: Winn Collier Narrator: Richard Poe Release Date: March 2021

This essential authorized biography of Eugene Peterson offers unique insights into the experiences and spiritual convictions of the iconic American pastor and beloved translator of The Message.   "In the time of a generation-wide breakdown in trust with leaders in every sphere of society, Eugene's quiet life of deep integrity and gospel purpose is a bright light against a dark backdrop."-John Mark Comer, author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry "This hunger for something radical-something so true that it burned in his bones-was a constant in Eugene's life. His longing for God ignited a ferocity in his soul."   Encounter the multifaceted life of one of the most influential and creative pastors of the past half century with unforgettable stories of Eugene's lifelong devotion to his craft and love of language, the influences and experiences that shaped his unquenchable faith, the inspiration for his decision to translate The Message, and his success and struggles as a pastor, husband, and father.   Author Winn Collier was given exclusive access to Eugene and his materials for the production of this landmark work. Drawing from his friendship and expansive view of Peterson's life, Collier offers an intimate, beautiful, and earthy look into a remarkable life.   For Eugene, the gifts of life were inexhaustible: the glint of fading light over the lake, a kiss from Jan, a good joke, a bowl of butter pecan ice cream. As you enter into his story, you'll find yourself doing the same-noticing how the most ordinary things shimmer with a new and unexpected beauty.

Two bodies have been found in the master bedroom of a mansion in Dundurn's old-money neighbourhood under the mountain. Howard Terry and his son Matthew have both been shot twice in the chest. Under Matthew's body is a doll with blood red cotton wadding spilling out of its head. Nearby, a female mannequin in a nightshirt lies on its back with two bullet holes in the chest. On the other side of town, a body is discovered below the Devil's Punch Bowl waterfall. Leaning against an enormous rock is a man in a cotton nightshirt wearing a papier mache donkey's head. Two rounds in the chest. Something about the way the bodies have been arranged triggers a memory in MacNeice of an image he saw years before . . .

Operation Jacknap: A True Story of Kidnapping, Extortion, Ransom, and Rescue Audiobook

Operation Jacknap: A True Story of Kidnapping, Extortion, Ransom, and Rescue

Author: Jack Teich Narrator: Richard Poe Release Date: November 2020

The incredible true story of one of America's largest ransom cases-and the massive FBI and police manhunt to bring the radical captors to justice. The New York Times described what happened to New York businessman Jack Teich as a "front page horror." Two hundred FBI agents and Nassau County police officers combined forces to form a dragnet, hunt for his kidnappers, and rescue him. Teich lay handcuffed and chained to the walls of a closet in the Bronx with a medical bandage wrapped around his head to cover his eyes. His captors demanded that his wife, Janet, drop a bag with $750,000 (the equivalent of four million dollars in today's currency) in a locker at Penn Station, making the Jack Teich ransom one of the highest in U.S. history at the time. FBI and Nassau County police detectives spent over a year before finally uncovering the meticulously planned kidnapping ploy hatched by radical mastermind Richard Warren Williams. The FBI internally dubbed the Jack Teich kidnapping operation "Jacknap." The real-life crime drama that followed proved stranger than fiction, involving a tense across-the-country manhunt, a trailer in California stuffed with tens of thousands of ransom dollars hidden inside, a contentious jury trial that dominated NYC headlines for months; a guilty verdict that was overturned twenty-one years later on a controversial technicality; a retrial stymied by a mysterious fire that incinerated court records; and a civil verdict ruling that the kidnapper pay Jack Teich back the ransom money, plus interest. Operation Jacknap tells the incredible true crime story that continues even now. Indeed, as of this writing, no one knows where the majority of the ransom money is located. Inside, Teich also details his offer of a reward to anyone helping track down the still missing money and kidnappers.

Entrapment, and Other Writings Audiobook

Entrapment, and Other Writings

Author: Nelson Algren Narrator: Nicol Zanzarella, Ramiz Monsef, Richard Ferrone, Richard Poe, Traber Burns Release Date: March 2020

Nelson Algren sought humanity in the urban wilderness of postwar America, where his powerful voice rose from behind the billboards and down tin-can alleys, from among the marginalized and ignored, the outcasts and scapegoats, the punks and junkies, the whores and down-on-their luck gamblers, the punch-drunk boxers and skid-row drunkies and kids who knew they’d never reach the age of twenty-one: all of them admirable in Algren’s eyes for their vitality and no-bullshit forthrightness, their insistence on living and their ability to find a laugh and a dream in the unlikeliest places. In Entrapment and Other Writings—containing his unfinished novel and previously unpublished or uncollected stories, poems, and essays—Algren speaks to our time as few of his fellow great American writers of the 1940s and ’50s do, in part because he hasn’t yet been accepted and assimilated into the American literary canon, despite that he is held up as a talismanic figure. “You should not read [Algren] if you can’t take a punch,” Ernest Hemingway declared. “Mr. Algren can hit with both hands and move around and he will kill you if you are not awfully careful.”

Becoming George Orwell: Life and Letters, Legend and Legacy Audiobook

Becoming George Orwell: Life and Letters, Legend and Legacy

Author: John Rodden Narrator: Richard Poe Release Date: February 2020

The remarkable transformation of Orwell from journeyman writer to towering icon Is George Orwell the most influential writer who ever lived? Yes, according to John Rodden's provocative book about the transformation of a man into a myth. Rodden does not argue that Orwell was the most distinguished man of letters of the last century, nor even the leading novelist of his generation, let alone the greatest imaginative writer of English prose fiction. Yet his influence since his death at midcentury is incomparable. No writer has aroused so much controversy or contributed so many incessantly quoted words and phrases to our cultural lexicon, from 'Big Brother' and 'doublethink' to 'thoughtcrime' and 'Newspeak.' Becoming George Orwell is a pathbreaking tour de force that charts the astonishing passage of a litterateur into a legend. Rodden presents the author of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four in a new light, exploring how the man and writer Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair, came to be overshadowed by the spectral figure associated with nightmare visions of our possible futures.Rodden opens with a discussion of the life and letters, chronicling Orwell's eccentricities and emotional struggles, followed by an assessment of his chief literary achievements. The second half of the book examines the legend and legacy of Orwell, whom Rodden calls 'England's Prose Laureate,' addressing his influence on everything ranging from cyberwarfare to 'fake news.' The closing chapters address both Orwell's enduring relevance to burning contemporary issues and the multiple ironies of his popular reputation, showing how he and his work have become confused with the very dreads and diseases that he fought against throughout his life.
