California lawyer Greg Monarch was in no mood for visitors. But it´s not every day a federal judge comes knocking at his door, especially with a curious request: to review the final appeal of a murderer on Death Row who personally asked for Greg´s assistance. Tired of defending killers, Greg has every intention of turning the case down until he discovers the prisoner is a former lover he hasn´t seen in two decades: the fiery, impetuous Sarah Trant.Her fate determined in a verdict rendered five years before, Sarah was found guilty of slashing an old man´s throat in central California´s sheltered El Nido Valley. All subsequent appeals have been denied. Now, six months from execution, she turns to the one man she hopes can save her. Greg failed once before in trying to rescue Sarah from her private demons. This time, however, the demons may not be just in her head. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edward Asner. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/pnix/000046/bk_pnix_000046_sample.mp3.

Originally broadcast as the ´Afternoon Play´ on 7 January 2009, and repeated on 31 March 2011. As an expert on memory loss, Greg Cooke is asked to invalidate the testimony of an eyewitness in a high-profile murder trial. He undermines the Prosecution´s key witness by convincing the jury that we forget as much within 24 hours as we do over a whole year. As a result, a vicious murderer walks free, but Greg is soon to discover there´s a price to pay… ´The Forgetting Curve´ was written by Emmy-nominated TV and Film writer Hugh Costello, and stars Michael Glenn Murphy as Greg Cooke.

Rafe Stoner is a gun for hire, a former Navy SEAL whose skills are in constant demand in his adopted home of Afghanistan. His legitimate business is selling surplus machinery, or so his tax return states. His real work is less prosaic, and makes him a good living from a grateful client base. The removal of inconvenient rivals is a way of life in the violent and war-torn nation. When a name surfaces during a conversation in a bar, the alarm bells ring. Khan. A name from the past, a man he thought he´d killed. He was wrong. The warlord clawed his way back from his injuries, and has sworn a lifelong vow. Stoner must die, along with those few people who are closest to him. Yet the SEAL vet is no easy target, and Khan needs professionals capable of carrying out the hit. He finds them. Spetsnaz. Inside Afghanistan, the bitterest memories of the Soviet invasion are reserved for the brutal Spetsnaz. Callous killers, men without scruple or mercy. Forced out after the Russian economic crisis brought deep cuts to the military, many mercenaries. Murder for hire, payment in advance. No questions asked. Willing recruits for Khan´s mission of vengeance. Their first attack is a hit against Stoner´s friends, Greg and Faria Blum, and their three children. An attack that launches him into a desperate struggle against the Russian experts, who will stop at nothing to kill him and his friends. He has no option but to fight hard to survive against the Russian mercenaries. Then to finish the job he started all those years ago. To kill Khan, or die in the attempt. This is an incredible story of tough, violent men in a tough, violent land. Heroes of Afghanistan: Spetsnaz Assassin is the latest title by the best-selling author of many Special Ops novels. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo stories, the Raider series, Echo Six, and a number of Devil´s Guard titles. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Neal Vickers.

The absentee father is a crisis that crosses all ethnic boundaries. For too long, many of us have neglected our obligations to our children. One of the causes is poor decision making, resulting in everything from addiction and incarceration, to failure to step up to the plate. No reason is forgivable, as the ultimate victim is the child. It´s time to make an attempt to rectify this behavior by establishing or reestablishing relationships with our children. The ´´Let´s Talk About Me´´ and ´´The Real Victim´´ sections specifically look at my complete failure as a father. The most important part of the document to me is called ´´Letters from My Children´´, which was suggested by Aleshia Anderson. I reached out to each child and asked them to discuss our lives before I became actively involved and afterwards. They all responded, and I left it unedited. If one father can gather from this document that it´s time to reconnect with his child, it will be well worth putting it together. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sule Greg Wilson, Fatimah Halim.
