Against all his expectations, Dr Siri Paiboun has rather enjoyed his first five months in office. Now, as hot-season nights close in, Siri is spirited away from Laos' steamy capital on a Matter of National Security. Arriving in Luang Prabang, he's a busy man, examining carbonized corpses, dining with the deposed king, attending a shamans' conference and being rescued by the ghost of an elephant. Not that Siri's complaining … Luang Prabang is in mountains and a good fifteen degrees cooler. Meanwhile, back at Vientiane headquarters, it’s hot. Bloody hot – savaged bodies are piling up in Siri’s absence. Is it the missing black bear from the circus, or could it be a weretiger? Siri's trusty assistant Nurse Dtui goes snooping but, unlike her boss, the spirits aren't looking out for her... And just what creature, if any, has thirty-three teeth? 1. Language: English.

Night Zone: Posadas County Mystery, Book 19: Bi...

What do you do when you inherit $330 million after taxes? If you're New Mexico rancher Miles Waddell, you build a dream. A flat-topped mesa and a third of a billion dollars equals Nightzone Zone, an astronomy-based theme park, complete with giant radio telescope, a bank of smaller scopes linked to a theater, five-star dining in a restaurant with retracting dome ceiling, a hotel/resort, tram car access, and a narrow gauge steam locomotive to carry tourists to the mesa top. Glorious. And too ambitious for many residents of Posadas County. Waddell's dream begins to sour as one night two eco-terrorists make an opening statement by chain-sawing down power lines that feed the development. One of the terrorists is killed by a bucking power pole. From 20 miles away, former Posadas Sheriff William K. Gastner spots a pair of headlights as the dead man’s companion speeds from the scene. Charges quickly include murder when the fleeing conspirator is stopped by a cop and guns the lawman down. Hours later a second shooting occurs when Gastner stops to assist Sgt. Jackie Taber during an unrelated traffic stop. Always the last to pull a trigger, the now 74-year old Gastner becomes the focus of a second investigation by the over-stressed District Attorney and Sheriff’s Department. Meanwhile, Waddell's troubles with rumor-mongers and anti-government thugs continue. A tired Gastner is unwilling to work security for NIGHTZONE, but security has become essential. There is a bright spot: Gastner’s godson, 13 year-old Francisco Guzman. The musical prodigy’s conservatory has scheduled a double concert in Posadas, part of a national tour. Yet the timing of this stellar event could not be worse with the retired Gastner and the whole community tangling with lethal avengers and agendas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rusty Nelson.

The last of his kind.... Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres, and he's happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger to keep him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable. Alone and discouraged.... Dana has walked away from everything - her fiancé, family, job, and apartment. A stay at the Wiccan Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what she finds isn't what she expects, nor is it what she thought she'd been seeking. If they can open themselves up, they might discover that being together can be better than being alone, and learn that passion can burn in those who least expect it. Meet the unusual residents of the Wiccan Haus. The staff can get a little hairy, and not all of the guests eat what's served in the dining hall. But the Rowan siblings do what they can to make the resort a place of healing and peace, using all of their years of practice. At the Haus, where humans and paranormals reside side by side, everyone in need of the services are welcome. If some happen to fall in love then all the better. Welcome to the Wiccan Haus. 1.

Travel Tales Collections, Food & Drink, No. 7, February 2015, is part of Michael Brein's Travel Tales Collections series. It contains some of the best stories from Michael's huge collection of travel tales that he has gathered in interviews with nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers during his four decades of travel to more than 125 countries throughout the world. Travel Tales Collections are groups of very interesting similar travel stories of a kind on a variety of very specific travel subjects, themes, or countries, such as close calls, great escapes, pickpocketing, scams, safety and security in travel, Paris, Morocco, Mexico, and so on. Eventually, several hundred 'Collections' on all sorts of specific travel subjects, themes, and countries will be available. Travel Tales Collections: Food & Drink includes Michael's own personal travel tales plus those of others of the sorts of dining & eating experiences that you can have in your travels. Of course, Michael's own food and drink stories are fairly unique to him, but somewhat similar things may happen to you. To Michael, eating and drinking has been sort of a paradox: On the one hand, you want what you ingest to be safe, reliable, and fairly known. On the other hand, you want to try new things, which involves taking a little bit of risk. After-all, "you are (sort of) what you eat" and you "get" what you eat or drink, often. Negative food and drink experience are almost always unsettling and rare surprises that do pop up now and again in your travels. Michael hopes the bad experiences don't happen to you. But if they do, hopefully, you're all the wiser for hearing about them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/031222/bk_acx0_031222_sample.mp3.

Rhode Island, ,the Ocean State,, consists of only 1,200 square miles, and one-quarter of the state is tidewater. With over 350 miles of coastline, a third of the citizens live within a mile of the seashore. The Narragansett Bay, spanning 102 square miles, is the heart of the state. From the early 19th to the mid-20th century, the shell and finfish industries flourished within the bay. Amusement parks and seaside dining halls sprang up on both sides. Beaches catered to Victorian ladies and gentlemen who took in the air but never wet their feet. The nation,s security has also played a major role in these waters. Through more than 200 stunning images, readers will see how Rhode Islanders found their fortune and character on the Narragansett Bay.
