Generally Speaking: All 33 Columns, plus a few philatelic words from Keller Audiobook

Generally Speaking: All 33 Columns, plus a few philatelic words from Keller

Author: Lawrence Block Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: May 2020

For almost three years, novelist and short-story writer Lawrence Block's monthly column, 'Generally Speaking,' was one of the most popular features in Linn's Stamp News. A general collector of pre-1940 issues, Block had the entire world of stamps as his subject, and he turned in thirty-three columns before he decided it was time to stop. But Keller, the author's fictional character, never lost his enthusiasm for philately. A wistful and introspective killer for hire, Keller rekindled a boyhood passion for stamps at the end of Hit Man, the first of a series of books about him. Like Block, Keller collects the whole world through philately's first century. (How's that for coincidence?) And the nature of his profession gives Keller more discretionary income than Block-and a lot more money to spend on stamps.

The Deportation Machine: America's Long History of Expelling Immigrants Audiobook

The Deportation Machine: America's Long History of Expelling Immigrants

Author: Adam Goodman Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: May 2020

The Deportation Machine traces the long and troubling history of the US government's systematic efforts to terrorize and expel immigrants over the past 140 years. This provocative, eye-opening book provides needed historical perspective on one of the most pressing social and political issues of our time. In a sweeping and engaging narrative, Adam Goodman examines how federal, state, and local officials have targeted various groups for expulsion, from Chinese and Europeans at the turn of the twentieth century to Central Americans and Muslims today. He reveals how authorities have singled out Mexicans, nine out of ten of all deportees, and removed most of them not by orders of immigration judges but through coercive administrative procedures and calculated fear campaigns. Goodman uncovers the machine's three primary mechanisms-formal deportations, 'voluntary' departures, and self-deportations-and examines how public officials have used them to purge immigrants from the country and exert control over those who remain. Exposing the pervasive roots of anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States, The Deportation Machine introduces the politicians, bureaucrats, businesspeople, and ordinary citizens who have pushed for and profited from expulsion.

Hamilton's Choice: A Gripping Novel of America's Foremost Founding Father

Author: Jack Casey Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: May 2020

Set against the tumultuous backdrop of the founding era of a new nation, Hamilton's Choice chronicles the life and times of one of America's 'first men' and architect of a new country, Alexander Hamilton. A poor, bastard orphan from the Caribbean, Hamilton rose to be one of the foremost leaders of a fledgling democratic republic. As one of the 'first men' of a new nation, Hamilton had many friends - and many more enemies, none more virulent than Vice President Aaron Burr. The death of Hamilton's eldest son, Phillip, at the hands of Burr's political allies, sets Hamilton on an inescapable and tragic course, one that will shock the nation. This is a tale of treachery, political intrigue, and heart-wrenching drama as an American hero is torn between love for his family and his commitment to his country.

In Her Shadow: A Novel

Author: Kristin Miller Narrator: Caitlin Davies, Dan Bittner, Robert Fass, Sarah Mollo-Christensen Release Date: April 2020

A pregnant young woman becomes obsessed with the disappearance of her lover's wife, only to discover that she may be headed for the same fate, in this novel from New York Times bestselling author Kristin Miller When secretary Colleen Roper becomes pregnant by her boss, Michael, he whisks her away to Ravenwood, his opulent estate. Abruptly thrust into a life of luxury she's never known, Colleen finds the immense house suffused with the memory of Michael's wife, Joanna, who left months ago and haunts her imagination. With rooms she's prohibited from entering and a staff that greets her with hostility, there is little room for a new mistress of Ravenwood. It's not long before bones are unearthed in the grove across the street and Michael falls under the suspicion of detectives. The soon-to-be mother of his child finds herself hurled deeper into her lover's dark past, a past filled with unfaithfulness and deception. Making a claim to her new life is harder than it seems-especially since she's walking in the shadow of the hauntingly beautiful Joanna. As Colleen untangles truth from lies, she discovers that nothing is what it seems, and that some people will kill to keep their secrets as quiet as the dead. Inspired by Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, In Her Shadow is the chilling story of one woman's desperate desire to be loved and the ghosts that threaten to get in her way.

Hate Inc.: Why Today's Media Makes Us Despise One Another Audiobook

Hate Inc.: Why Today's Media Makes Us Despise One Another

Author: Matt Taibbi Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: March 2020

Part tirade, part confessional from the celebrated Rolling Stone journalist, Hate Inc. reveals that what most people think of as 'the news' is, in fact, a twisted wing of the entertainment business. In this characteristically turbocharged new book, celebrated Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi provides an insider's guide to the variety of ways today's mainstream media tells us lies. Part tirade, part confessional, it reveals that what most people think of as 'the news' is, in fact, a twisted wing of the entertainment business. In the Internet age, the press have mastered the art of monetizing anger, paranoia, and distrust. Taibbi, who has spent much of his career covering elections in which this kind of manipulative activity is most egregious, provides a rich taxonomic survey of American political journalism's dirty tricks. Heading into a 2020 election season that promises to be a Great Giza Pyramid Complex of invective and digital ugliness, Hate Inc. will be an invaluable antidote to the hidden poisons dished up by those we rely on to tell us what is happening in the world.

The Eye You See With: Selected Nonfiction Audiobook

The Eye You See With: Selected Nonfiction

Author: Madison Smartt Bell, Robert B. Stone Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: March 2020

The definitive collection of nonfiction—from war reporting to literary criticism to the sharpest political writing—from the “legend of American letters” (Vanity Fair) Robert Stone was a singular American writer, a visionary whose award-winning novels—including Dog Soldiers, Outerbridge Reach, and Damascus Gate—earned him comparisons to literary lions ranging from Samuel Beckett to Ernest Hemingway to Graham Greene. Stone had an almost prophetic grasp of the spirit of his age, which he captured with crystalline clarity in each of his novels. Of course, he was also a sharp and brilliant observer of American life, and his nonfiction writing is revelatory.   The Eye You See With—the first and only collection of Robert Stone’s nonfiction—was carefully selected by award-winning novelist and Stone biographer Madison Smartt Bell. Divided into three sections, the collection includes the best of Stone’s war reporting, his writing on social change, and his reflections on the art of fiction. This is an extraordinary volume that offers up a clear-eyed look at the 20th century and secures Robert Stone’s place as one of the most original figures in all of American letters. Two-time winner of the prestigious Audie Award as well as numerous AudioFile Earphones Awards, veteran actor Robert Fass has narrated over 200 unabridged audiobooks by modern and classic fiction writers such as Ray Bradbury, John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, T.S. Eliot, Joyce Carol Oates, Carlos Fuentes, Jeffrey Deaver, and Lee Child, as well as bestselling and prize-winning nonfiction works in history, politics, health, journalism, philosophy, business, and memoir.

The Mysteries of Soldiers Grove Audiobook

The Mysteries of Soldiers Grove

Author: Paul Zimmer Narrator: Robert Fass, Xe Sands Release Date: January 2020

The town of Soldiers Grove is nestled amongst the driftless hills of southwestern Wisconsin. Its winters are long, its warmer seasons bright and challenging. The population is fewer than six hundred, including those residing in the senior citizens home. Two of these seniors, Cyril and Louise, have come to live there. Unlikely as it may seem, for they come from very diverse backgrounds, they form a close friendship, and their growing attachment sparks them to adventures and unlikely locations. Ultimately they face frightening circumstances which test them to their limits, while binding and nurturing their growing love for one another. Instead of slipping gracefully away into old age, Cyril and Louise are compelled to protect themselves against a vicious threat when Balaclava, an out-of-town armed sociopath, relentlessly attempts to rob Cyril not only of his savings but, if necessary, his life as well. How they ultimately cope with this threat and resolve this crisis has the makings of a first-class thriller. This thoughtful, bittersweet love story represents and chronicles much about our world and the passage of time in this accomplished work by a prizewinning writer.

The Special Counsel: The Mueller Report Retold Audiobook

The Special Counsel: The Mueller Report Retold

Author: Mark Caro Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: December 2019

'This is the end of my presidency. I'm fucked.' -President Donald Trump Imagine Special Counsel Robert Mueller got so frustrated with the U.S. attorney general that, instead of letting the Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election speak for itself, he allowed the full narrative of corruption, high crimes, and cover-ups to be revealed... With more than 350,000 copies sold, the Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Election has taken its place as the defining document of the Trump administration. Replete with some of the most infamous characters and outlandish schemes in modern American history, the underlying evidence in the Special Counsel's written testimony could have been plucked from the script of a blockbuster movie. But at 400-plus pages of bewildering redactions and impenetrable legal analysis, the text itself is so dense that even our elected officials have admitted to leaving the report unread. Now, stripped of legalese while still faithful to fact, The Special Counsel tells the story of what really happened in a compulsively readable-yet comprehensive-narrative. Whisking readers from Manhattan's Trump Tower to the rural towns of Pennsylvania and the frosty streets of St. Petersburg, this book brings to vivid life the people, places, and politics that have shaped our post-2016 lives. One thing is bone-chillingly clear: our democracy is under attack and only an informed American public can save it. The Special Counsel is as necessary as it is thrilling.

The Listener: A Novel Audiobook

The Listener: A Novel

Author: Rachel Basch Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: December 2019

Malcolm Dowd is almost positive he recognizes the freshman who shows up for a session at his office in Baxter College's Center for Behavioral Health-he just can't place her. When suddenly she stands, takes off her wig, and reveals herself as Noah, the young man Malcolm had been treating months earlier, it marks the start of a relationship that will change them both. After losing his wife at a young age, Malcolm dedicated himself to giving his two daughters the stable, predictable childhood he never had. But now nothing is predictable-not his young-adult daughters, not himself, and certainly not Noah. Whether he's attending class or rehearsing for the campus musical, Noah finds he's often challenging everyone's definition of gender. During the course of one semester, Noah's and Malcolm's lives become entwined in ways neither could ever have imagined. Told alternately from Malcolm's and Noah's perspectives, The Listener explores the ways in which we conceal and reveal our identities. As truth after truth is exposed, characters are forced to reconsider themselves and reorder their lives, with few easy answers to be found for anyone. The Listener is, ultimately, about the power of human connection and the many shapes that love can take.

Citizen 865: The Hunt for Hitler's Hidden Soldiers in America Audiobook

Citizen 865: The Hunt for Hitler's Hidden Soldiers in America

Author: Debbie Cenziper Narrator: Robert Fass Release Date: November 2019

The gripping story of a team of Nazi hunters at the U.S. Department of Justice as they raced against time to expose members of a brutal SS killing force who disappeared in America after World War Two. In 1990, in a drafty basement archive in Prague, two American historians made a startling discovery: a Nazi roster from 1945 that no Western investigator had ever seen. The long-forgotten document, containing more than 700 names, helped unravel the details behind the most lethal killing operation in World War Two. In the tiny Polish village of Trawniki, the SS set up a school for mass murder and then recruited a roving army of foot soldiers, 5,000 men strong, to help annihilate the Jewish population of occupied Poland. After the war, some of these men vanished, making their way to the U.S. and blending into communities across America. Though they participated in some of the most unspeakable crimes of the Holocaust, 'Trawniki Men' spent years hiding in plain sight, their terrible secrets intact. In a story spanning seven decades, Citizen 865 chronicles the harrowing wartime journeys of two Jewish orphans from occupied Poland who outran the men of Trawniki and settled in the United States, only to learn that some of their one-time captors had followed. A tenacious team of prosecutors and historians pursued these men and, up against the forces of time and political opposition, battled to the present day to remove them from U.S. soil. Through insider accounts and research in four countries, this urgent and powerful narrative provides a front row seat to the dramatic turn of events that allowed a small group of American Nazi hunters to hold murderous men accountable for their crimes decades after the war's end.
