The stories of Henghis Hapthorn, Old Earth´s ´´foremost freelance discriminator´´, combine mystery and science fantasy while simultaneously recalling the arch irony of Gene Wolfe and the sly fancies of Jack Vance. 1.

Gist is a powerful book that reviews and examines what the journey to adulthood entails, along with a clear look at those parenting efforts that have proven not to work over the years. ´´Many hours and much emotional energy are spent in parenting strategies where nothing positive is produced.´´ Gist is a fascinating look at many aspects of life that wouldn´t typically be associated with parenting. But the result is a new way to think about parenting that is effective, efficient, and enjoyable. The audiobook´s focus on life-readiness offers parents a new lens through which to see their parenting interactions and translates to an approach that eliminates many of the power struggles and ineffective patterns that can rob families of much of their joy. 1.

Jago Gist’s dreams for his Lazy G Ranch stand on the cusp of fruition when friend and neighbor Calhoun Hoskins is served papers. The betrayal threatening Hoskins’s Blue Hill Ranch quickly pulls Jago into the struggle. Texas in 1884 is moving to the rule of law, but not fast enough for Jago and Calhoun to rely on it to keep barons like William Wilkins from usurping the land and cattle of others.The men of BlueHill and Lazy G bank not only on their frontier skills but also on the mettle and devotion of their women. Driven by determination and desire, the alluring Liliana and Calhoun’s sister, Eliza, prove themselves fierce and loyal in the face of the onslaught.With Wilkins and his hirelings closing in, paid guns and lawyers may not be enough to defend BlueHill. Triumph may rest on an act of desperation, an ultimate sacrifice to protect the Hoskins legacy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Veronica Gentile.

I´ll be on your patio at four o´clock. If you aren´t there, I´ll understand.... This is the gist of the mysterious plea for help that Conan Flagg finds lying on the counter of his Holliday Beach Book Shop. The writer is beautiful Isadora Canfield, a concert pianist and daughter of the late Oregon Senator John Canfield, in whose will she would become a millionairess. Isadora wants Conan to find out who is keeping her under 24-hour surveillance, but she becomes strangely quiet when asked for details of her father´s death and of how she had spent the weeks following. In fact she is disinclined to talk about the family at all - not her blind stepmother or her irrepressible stepbrother or her sadly altered stepsister, Jenny, who had once been a promising artist. Conan soon realizes that he and his gifted client are sitting on dynamite. He thinks he knows who has the matches, but he can´t be sure. And proving it, is dangerous work, even for a pro like Flagg. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Marshall. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/018326/bk_adbl_018326_sample.mp3.
