Former classics professor Bertrand McAbee, now turned private investigator, has a history of unwarily stepping into nasty cases. This is one of those as he comes up against a former Marine, Alex Love, who is two things at once: an expert sniper and supposedly dead. In the intervening years since the Gulf War, Love has been addicted to assassinating individuals of ill-repute. As if fate had ordained it, these two very unlike men, McAbee and Love, meet in a contest where justice and revenge stand in opposition. Only one can survive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott R.

Just before and at the beginning of the US Civil War, Indian territory was an untamed lawless place filled with Indians, outlaws teamsters, farms, towns folks, and houses of ill repute. The five civilized tribes were slaveholders, but were radically different than their white counterparts. There were strict laws concerning the abuse of slaves and after seven years of servitude the slave was given his or her freedom and given the choice of being adopted by the tribe. When hostilities broke out between the North and the South the Indians joined the Confederacy and fought in the Battle of Elkhorn Tavern at Pea Ridge, Arkansas. My family built and owned Elkhorn Tavern until the State of Arkansas bought it at "fair market value" and donated it to the US Parks Department. I do not consider this work of historical fiction to be a war book, though set in the Civil War era. It is more about the people that lived in those times and their way of life. 1. Language: English.

Rare is the opportunity to see, much less own, an original. But this unusual, carefully crafted reproduction of Benjamin Graham and David Dodd's immortal Security Analysis gives you that chance--to read and treasure a true classic--the book that gave birth to value investing. Continuously in print through five editions, for more than 60 years, and through nearly a million copies, the primer for many of America's most illustrious investors--and the wellspring of Graham and Dodd's Wall Street Immortality--Security Analysis is indisputably the most influential book on investing ever written. Still the investors' bible, it's as frequently consulted today as it was when it first appeared in 1934. Of course, over the years and over five editions, Security Analysis changed. Its language was modernized. New material was added. Metaphors and examples were brought up to date. In the light of changing times, these alterations were necessary and appropriate. But what of the original book? The very durability of this work arouses our curiosity. And what we discover when we return to the original is very simply a classic, a work whose uncompromising worth has not paled since it first saw the light of day in 1934. The original words of Benjamin Graham and David Dodd--put to paper not long after the disastrous Stock Market Crash of 1929--still have the mesmerizing qualities of rigorous honesty and diligent scrutiny, the same riveting power of disciplined thought and determined logic that gave the work its first distinction and began its illustrious career. The words you will read here are eloquent. Not only a financial genius and a man of high repute for honorable dealings, Graham was a man of letters invited to teach in the literature department at Columbia University (as well as in the economics and philosophy departments). But this reproduction is far more than a historical curiosity, an interesting object, and a delightful read. It presents the original Graham/Dodd method of investing--told in their own words as they first described it in the 1930s. What exactly is this method that has drawn such longterm devotion in the notably fickle reaches of Wall Street? Graham and Dodd were Wall Street's first bargain shoppers. In this book they first explain their methods for locating bonds and stocks "which are selling well below the levels apparently justified by a careful analysis of the relevant facts." In this book, they tell you precisely how to find these undervalued securities and analyze those "relevant facts." Are these methods still practical and usable today? The great fortunes created by value investors Warren Buffett, Mario Gabelli, John Neff, Michael Price, and John Bogle testify that they certainly are. In their preface to this book, Graham and Dodd write that they hope their work "will stand the test of the ever enigmatic future." There is no doubt that it has. This distinctively wrought book is a careful reproduction of the 1934 edition, containing every word of the original.

Edith was born into a different world. But her rebellious nature brought her to the seedy glamour of the music hall, where she plays the piano by night. Oliver is an illusionist of moderate repute. But he is a man of ambition. He wants to tour the world, to pioneer groundbreaking illusions. History and fate have other ideas. When Edith and Oliver meet, they fall headlong in love. But their children arrive as the world begins to change, as cinemas crowd the high street and the draw of the music hall wanes. What follows is a struggle: against the entropy of marriage, against the march of time, and against Oliver's flaws - flaws that may cost them everything. Read by Owen Roe. 1. Language: English.

This audiobook is a collection of very different stories, ranging in length from flash fiction to novella, in genres from mystery, fantasy, alternate history, experiments, and others, set in time from the distant past to the present...and a little bit beyond. What are contained in these tales? Tornadoes pop up here and there. Jack the Ripper stops by a couple of times, sort of, along with other persons of ill or odd repute. There's a pet cockroach; healing in the silence of a muskrat; a farmer who finds meaning in fireflies and rain. Then there's the escaped slave who meets his former master, the Civil War prisoner who just wants to go home, and the doctor's wife who shows the power of a small act of kindness. These are stories of odd connections: A winter storm conjures up images of the past and future; a drainage tunnel reveals the truth of domestic abuse and, ultimately, death. A chicken, a cannon, Christianity and Native American religion. Old Norse mythology and Christianity. A diary from the future, found in the past. An assassination that unites a divided country. And the last story...who in this world can know what connections are happening there? 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Calvert.
