But his enemy has retreated from the ruins left smoldering in the Vietnamese jungle, to regroup and mount the assault that will solidify his ultimate power-and destroy Linnear. That enemy is Mick Leonforte, scion of a proud and deadly Mafia dynasty. Now an international corporate power broker as well as a criminal czar, Leonforte is preparing to take on Linnear, his sworn nemesis, on the battleground where business and warfare become one. There Linnear comes face to face with a terrible truth about his own father, one that links Nicholas inescapably to his enemy.

But life has a warped sense of humor, and I wasn´t the only Bennett brother that fell for the girl with the caramel colored eyes. The night I saw Travis with her I knew I´d lost, even before I had the chance to fight. Because one thing I never compete with my brother over is women. Even if the woman stole my breath, and my heart with one single kiss. And damn, what a kiss it had been. Now, she´s pregnant with my brother´s baby. A baby he wants nothing to do with. And he´s asked me to clean up his mess. What he doesn´t know is that I´m in love with her, and I have no intention of offering her the deal he´s laid out. I have a deal of my own. One that will finally make her mine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Addison Spear. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/086026/bk_acx0_086026_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

From one of the most important contemporary voices to emerge from the Middle East comes a gripping tale of love and betrayal, honesty and artifice, which asks whether it is possible to truly reinvent ourselves, to shed our old skin and start anew. Second Person Singular follows two men, a successful Arab criminal attorney and a social worker-turned-artist, whose lives intersect under the most curious of circumstances. The lawyer has a thriving practice in the Jewish part of Jerusalem, a large house, a Mercedes, speaks both Arabic and Hebrew, and is in love with his wife and two young children. In an effort to uphold his image as a sophisticated Israeli Arab, he often makes weekly visits to a local bookstore to pick up popular novels. On one fateful evening, he decides to buy a used copy of Tolstoy´s The Kreutzer Sonata, a book his wife once recommended. To his surprise, inside he finds a small white note, a love letter, in Arabic, in her handwriting. ´´I waited for you, but you didn´t come. I hope everything´s all right. I wanted to thank you for last night. It was wonderful. Call me tomorrow?´´ Consumed with suspicion and jealousy, the lawyer slips into a blind rage over the presumed betrayal. He first considers murder, revenge, then divorce, but when the initial sting of humiliation and hurt dissipates, he decides to hunt for the book´s previous owner - a man named Yonatan, a man who is not easy to track down, whose identity is more complex than imagined, and whose life is more closely aligned with his own than expected. In the process of dredging up old ghosts and secrets, the lawyer tears the string that holds all of their lives together. A Palestinian who writes in Hebrew, Sayed Kashua defies classification and breaks through cultural barriers. He communicates, with enormous emotional power and a keen sense of the absurd, the particular alienation and the psychic costs of people struggling to straddle two worlds. Sec 1. Language: English.

In this hour, Walter Moskowitz is a tattoo legend. Before he passed away in 2007, he ran the first commercial tattoo parlor on Long Island. He learned his trade, his art, from his father William. And passed it on to his son Marvin – who now runs the family business. Next, Walter Moskowitz learned tattooing from his father William, who did tattoos from the basement of his barbershop called Willy’s. In bruising Bowery fashion, the shop offered a unique service. Then, nothing stops a bullet like a job. That’s the slogan of Homeboy Industries in LA. It helps young men leave behind gang life. When Father Gregory Boyle started Homeboy, 25 years ago, he had no idea its largest service would be tattoo removal. Volunteer doctors erase some 800 tattoo a month. After that, Walter’s shop was a hot spot for military men going off to fight in the second world war. Their pin-up girl tattoos are legend. But popular designs change and change. And change again.Following that, Cynthia Woodland’s tattoo has a story. It’s about being a young single mom. It’s about faith. It’s about Tyler. Next, getting words, quotes, even lines of verse inked under the skin is more common that you think. There’s even a name for it: Literary Tattoos. Then, one more story from Walter Moskowitz, the last of the Bowery Scab Merchants. Walter tattoos 80 men in a day. Finally, legendary tattoo artist Walter Moskowitz learned how to tattoo from his father and passed on the art to his son, Marvin.
