In the India of the mid-1970s, Indira Gandhi´s government has just come to power. It institutionalizes corruption and arbitrary force, most oppressive to the poorest and weakest people under its sway. Against this backdrop, in an unnamed city by the sea, four people struggle to survive. Dina, Maneck, and two tailors, the Untouchables Om and Ishvar, who are sewing in Dina´s service, undergo a series of reversals, punctuated only by small mocking advances, that start them on a trajectory towards unhappiness and despair. Yet, in choosing what they will do, they exhibit a basic dignity and humanity that belies their mistreatment as part of the underclass. By merely surviving until their load becomes unbearable, and then living on past that point, they have accomplished something. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Lee.

Contains the first three books in the Purge of Babylon series, including The Purge of Babylon: A Novel Survival, The Gates of Byzantium, and The Stones of Angkor. Stay out of the dark. Load up on silver bullets. And whatever you do, stay alive. Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments. Survivors call it The Purge. Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. But surviving The Purge was one thing - staying alive is another matter entirely.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Danoff.

In the wake of his best-selling thriller Deadly Straits, which drew comparisons to Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, and W.E.B. Griffin, newcomer R.E. McDermott is back with an action-packed sequel. Dugan thought Somali pirates were bad news. Then it got worse. As Tom Dugan and Alex Kairouz, his partner and best friend, struggle to ransom their ship and crew from murderous Somali pirates, things take a turn for the worse. A US Navy contracted tanker with a full load of jet fuel is also hijacked, not by garden variety pirates, but by terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, changing the playing field completely. With a possible link between piracy and terrorism now in play, the US and British governments order the halt of all negotiations for captive ships, and enraged pirates ratchet up the mistreatment of the captive crews. When one of his crewmen is murdered in front of him on a live video feed, a frustrated Dugan takes matters into his own hands and starts his own rescue operation, only to stumble across something far more sinister - a rogue salvage operation for a long lost weapon of mass destruction. Isolated at sea on an old tanker previously destined for the ship breakers, Dugan and his hastily assembled little force of Russian mercenaries find themselves the last line of defense between the world and a terrifying bio-weapon. Weaving historical fact with speculative fiction, Deadly Coast takes the listener from London board rooms into the very real world of modern day pirates - and their victims. 1. Language: English.

One night. That was all it took. Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments. Survivors call it The Purge. Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. Among the survivors are two ex-Army Rangers, a businesswoman, and a third-year medical student. But surviving The Purge was one thing - staying alive is another matter entirely. Hope exists in the countryside, in the form of a self-sustaining underground facility designed to withstand any calamity. But in order to reach its safety, the survivors must travel hundreds of treacherous miles, with the night - and the creatures that dwell within it - always at their backs. The rules are simple: Stay out of the dark, load up on silver bullets, and whatever you do, stay alive. The road to salvation has begun… 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Danoff.

There are too many books about self-defense and handguns, I know. I´ve seen and read a few of them. But one thing I noticed was lacking is how a gun can protect you in a self-defense situation. Most experts tell you what guns to buy, how to train with them, how to load them, and how to shoot them, but is that all you need to know? How do you find out when the time comes if you will be able to pull the trigger? When I teach people about self-defense, I teach them about the ins and outs of handguns that are popular, how they work, and how to fix common issues. But I hope that is not why you would get this audiobook. I want to prepare you mentally and physically, and I want you to know all the laws that may affect you - along with making you a master of concealed carry where you are comfortable, confident, and will know when and how to use it if the time ever comes. I never thought my education and training would be put to test until one fateful day when I found myself in the middle of a gang-related shootout situation where I did have to draw my gun and use it. Let’s just say, I was little faster. That situation taught me a lot about the legal system and the abuse that goes on in the government on an everyday basis. But the important thing is I survived through it, and it made me a better person, both as a human being and as an instructor who teaches self-defense through concealed carry. Regardless of what you hear about declining crime rate, just remember the world population is growing at a much faster rate than the resources we survive on. When this happens, as you can imagine, more people will fight over the same resources than before. It won’t surprise me if there will be a day when it will be survival-of-the-fittest law, meaning who has more strength and power will win and have access to the resources. I am not trying to scare you; we are not there yet. It may never happen. But what if it does? Should we be ready? I beli... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Werbung.
