Adapted from a screenplay by award-winning screenwriter Jason McCulloch, Voices is a tense, multi-genre debut perfect for fans of thriller, suspense/mystery, detective, and police procedural.

One week after his ninth birthday, Allan Abrams knew he wanted to be a father. Four decades and countless heartbreaks later, his dream is about to come true. All he and his wife, Clara, must do is navigate the final stretch of yet another risky pregnancy, this one complicated by their strained marriage, a pandemic, escalating political and racial tensions, and a far deadlier threat that is about to emerge.

Allan and Clara’s holiday plans include a pantry full of comfort food and an endless supply of Christmas movies. But those plans are derailed when police ask Allan, a psychiatrist, to help solve a puzzling case. A death row inmate was brutally slain in his locked cell. Before police were aware of the inmate’s death, an elderly, homeless man confessed to the murder using details only the killer could know.

Allan quickly determines the old man is suffering from powerful delusions, including the belief that the current chaos in the world is not random or unrelated, but rather, the start of a horrifying chapter for humanity. It’s not long before strange coincidences and odd occurrences have Allan wondering if there might be more to the old man – and his bizarre story – than meets the eye. Driven by an increasingly intense compulsion he doesn’t understand, Allan delves deeper into the mind of the enigmatic old man only to dig up more questions.

Ultimately, answering those questions will force Allan to face an unimaginable choice. A choice that could jeopardize his final chance to be a father and threaten everyone he loves.

400 feet deep, in the treacherous waters of green turtle cay, lies the world’s most dangerous cargo…waiting for the world’s most daring diver.

Salvage diver Tiller Galloway vowed he would never work for “The Baptist” again. Until the menacing kingpin makes him an offer he can’t refuse, sending him deep into the beautiful blue Caribbean to raise 50 tons of cargo – a dive to the razor’s edge of death. Caught in the cross fire of a crazed underboss and hostile islanders, Tiller takes on a nightmare of double crosses, as a scenario more sinister than he ever imagined begins to unfold. From the author of Down to a Sunless Sea comes this shattering sequel to Hatteras Blue, a tale as explosive as those of Clive Cussler and Peter Benchley, and packed with some of the most breathless undersea scenes ever written.

USA Today best-selling author David Poyer writes gripping undersea thrillers in the tradition of Clive Cussler and John D. MacDonald.

Inspired by actual events, No Salvation features the USS Salvation as it sails for months on end in the South China Sea in the violent closing days of the Vietnam War. Exhaustion, drugs, and discontent run rampant aboard ship and crew morale is at an all-time low. These conditions affect four thousand men being sequestered for months on end without port visits has everyone on edge.

This is 1972, a time when inequality and racial tension permeated ships fleet-wide. As a way to mitigate racial unrest, the ship’s captain brings in Commander Robert Porter as his Executive Officer. Commander Porter isn’t sure if he’s been selected for the job because of his skills or for the color of his skin, but the black crew doesn’t accept him.

Amid rampant drug use and various forms of sabotage, the biggest challenge to the ship’s performance and the crew’s safety is a series of violent attacks made by planes launching from the flight deck, but more perilous are the racial tensions boiling below.

Porter is uniquely positioned to save them all, but can he? If so, at what cost?

The national conversation regarding the United States Navy has, for far too long, been focused on the popular question of how many ships does the service need? 

To Provide and Maintain a Navy, a succinct but encompassing treatise on sea power by Dr. Henry J. “Jerry” Hendrix, goes beyond the numbers to reveal the crucial importance of Mare Liberum (Free Sea) to the development of the Western thought and the rules based order that presently governs the global commons that is the high seas. 

Proceeding from this philosophical basis, Hendrix explores how a “free sea” gave way to free trade and the central role sea borne commercial trade has played in the overall rise in global living standards. This is followed by analysis of how the relative naval balance of power has played out in terms of naval battles and wars over the centuries and how the dominance of the United States Navy following World War II has resulted in seven decades of unprecedented peace on the world’s oceans. 

He further considers how, in the years that followed the demise of the Soviet Union, both China and Russia began laying the groundwork to challenge the United States maritime leadership and upend five centuries of naval precedents in order to establish a new approach to sovereignty over the world’s seas. 

It is only at this point that Dr. Hendrix approaches the question of the number of ships required for the United States Navy, the industrial base required to build them, and the importance of once again aligning the nation’s strategic outlook to that of a “seapower” in order to effectively and efficiently address the rising threat.

A modern reimagining of Shakespeare’s King Lear by debut literary novelist Drew Krepp.

Henry O’Reilly, the founder and head of a seafood empire nearing the end of his career, makes sudden preparations to divide his empire among his three sons and entrust to them not only the family business, but the future of their North Carolina town. 

The youngest of the three, Patrick, remains at odds with his family’s decadence and avarice, and declines to become involved. As the two older men conspire to force Henry into early retirement and take over the company completely, the brothers’ lust for power leads to turbulent and terrifying battles, with Patrick unwillingly thrust into the very eye of the storm. 

As greed, cowardice, and petty spite threaten to destroy those around him, Patrick proves himself no match for the scheming of others. If he is to survive the maelstrom wrought by his bickering, dangerous kin, he must find his strength within.

Caught between the spiraling pulls of business intrigue and the deadly force of a hurricane sweeping up the Carolinas, the events of The Salt Marsh King will alter the shape of a barrier island, the destiny of a powerful family, and the fate of the town that relies on their business.

Fast on the heels of his 2013 award-winning short story “The Brackish”, Drew Krepp’s debut novel The Salt Marsh King heralds the full arrival of a talented author whose voice is fresh, intelligent, and powerful.

Fantasy government by the people and for the people.

Not just the United States, but the entire world, remembers that fateful November day back in 2018 when Al Qaeda terrorists held the entire nation hostage in exchange for the public disclosure of an anti-terrorist bioweapon that may not have even existed.

In that darkest hour, salvation came not from the United States government, but from fantasy government. This cabinet of independent thinkers from Naperville, Illinois – a librarian, a customer service representative, a gas station owner, and an obsessive gamer – was led by insurance adjustor and President Jay Weise.

Now, thanks to the tireless efforts of crusading vagabond journalist, former White House press secretary, and part-time Radio Shack employee Jerome Bartels, here for the first time is the true story of the Stockdale Hostage Crisis from the people who lived it.

Just another urban folktale of sordid bloodlust…

The one that started it all – K. W. Jeter’s first novel that took him 12 years to get published, despite every science fiction editor in America telling him it was a great book, exactly what they should be publishing, but were too afraid to pull the trigger on. The book about which Philip K. Dick said “will change your notions of what’s possible in science fiction forever”.

Overly graphic violence, repulsive sexual practices, scathing social commentary, and a cast of thoroughly unlikable characters – it’s nearly impossible to describe. But a lot of people get killed in it, and a lot of things get blown up, a lot of which you might agree should get blown up. So, it might be exactly what you’re looking for, you sick bastards.

Before the plague, and the quarantine, 14-year-old Daniel Raymond had only heard of the Listeners. They were a gang, maybe even a cult, or at least that’s what his best friend Katie’s police officer father had said. They were criminals, thieves, monsters — deadly men clearly identifiable by the removal of their right ears.

That’s what Daniel had heard. But he didn’t know.

He didn’t know much in those early days. He didn’t know how the plague began, but then, no one did. The doctors and emergency medical personnel said it was airborne, and highly contagious. They said those infected became distorted both inside and out, and very, very dangerous.

Then the helicopters came and took the doctors away, and no one said much of anything after that.

Except the police officers. They said they’d provide food and order, in exchange for guns and, ultimately, anything else they felt like taking.

Daniel’s mother went out for toilet paper. She never came back. He hasn’t heard from Katie since the phones went dead. And with his real family gone and surrogate family unreachable, Daniel, scared and alone, has nothing except the walls of his apartment, the window shattered, the poisonous air seeping in.

That’s when the Listeners arrive. Derek, the one-eared man with the big, soulful eyes, promises protection, and hope, and the choice not to sit alone and wait to die in some horrific way. He offers a brotherhood under the watch of their leader, the prophet Adam. He offers a place in the world to come.

A harrowing work of literary horror, The Listeners, Harrison Demchick’s electrifying debut, is a dark and terrifying journey into loneliness, desperation, and the devastating experience of one young boy in a world gone mad.

Misdirection is a step-by-step playbook for CEOs, CFOs, business owners, and HR executives that will help you identify and mitigate what can be the largest cause of negative operating leverage in your business. 

No matter your industry, company size, or location, this book will provide the tools to help you uncover what every other consultant has ignored. These expenses, hiding in every business, are disguised as liabilities but can become a powerful asset. You can look at this book as a self-defense, judo of sorts, to protect your company from unnecessarily overspending on what should be a manageable expense. Not only do we address cost, but we discuss employee morale, improving company culture, and how all these topics are tied together. 

Many times I see companies sacrifice the important for the urgent. This causes businesses to neglect what they believe they cannot change and instead focus on what they know they can. 

This blind spot on your P&L has been largely overlooked because you have been trained to overlook it. In fact, most business owners, C-suite executives, mayors, governors, and union heads have been trained to delegate this expense to non-P&L managers. This is because they’ve always thought there was no way to control this expense. In reality, they have been kept in the dark by the misaligned incentives in this multibillion-dollar industry. 

Warren Buffet once famously called GM “a health and benefits company with an auto company attached”. It has also been reported that Starbucks spends more on health insurance for its employees than it does on coffee beans. For most companies, health insurance is the second or third largest expense after payroll and raw materials. 

This puts you in the health-care business! I have just one question for you – how is your health-care business doing? If my asking that question made you feel uncomfortable, that’s okay – it’s just the Cartel’s programming taking over. 

When organizations spend millions of dollars in a belief system, they try very hard to hold on to it. In this book, you will learn: 

  • The financial hedging strategy that will allow your company to arbitrage risk of $40,000 to one million dolalrs, down to less than $5,000. 
  • Who the cartel is and how they have been paid billions by ripping off millions of people and business just like yours. 
  • Why your company unnecessarily overpays for what should be a manageable expense. 
  • How to turn a rented liability into an asset you own. 
  • Why health-care supply-chain price gouging causes the quality of your health plan to diminish, and what you can do about it. 
  • How a few simple steps can increase your company’s EBITDA each and every year. 
  • The fastest way to recapture a decade or more of losses – that you have already experienced. 
  • Recognize the “learned helplessness” that has gradually crept into your awareness over the last 10-plus years. 
  • How price and cost are different and how we can use this to make your health plan better. 

This book is a plainly written, common sense guide to why you overpay for healthcare at work and how to give your employees the best health-care plan they have ever had. Doing this will give you a literal competitive edge in your market, just be sure to listen to this before your competitor does. 

Forward by Craig Lack, best-selling author and labeled as “the most effective consultant you’ve never heard of”.

Rebecca Martin is a single mother with an apartment to rent and a sense that she has used up her illusions. I had the romantic thing with my first husband, thank you very much, she tells a hapless suitor. I’m 38 years old, and I’ve got a daughter learning to read and a job I don’t quite like. I don’t need the violin music. But when the new tenant in her in-law’s apartment turns out to be Michael Christopher, on the lam after 20 years in a monastery and smack-dab in the middle of a dark night of the soul, Rebecca begins to suspect that she is not as thoroughly disillusioned as she had thought.  

Her daughter, Mary Martha, is delighted with the new arrival, as is Rebecca’s mother, Phoebe, a rollicking widow making a new life for herself among the spiritual eccentrics of the coastal town of Bolinas. Even Rebecca’s best friend, Bonnie, once a confirmed cynic in matters of the heart, urges Rebecca on. But none of them, Rebecca feels, understands how complicated and dangerous love actually is.  

As her unlikely friendship with the ex-monk grows toward something deeper, and Michael wrestles with his despair while adjusting to a second career flipping hamburgers at McDonald’s, Rebecca struggles with her own temptation to hope. But it is not until she is brought up short by the realities of life and death that she begins to glimpse the real mystery of love and the unfathomable depths of faith.  

Beautifully written and playfully engaging, this novel is about one man wrestling with his yearning for a life of contemplation and the need for a life of action in the world. But it’s Rebecca’s spirit, as well as her relationships with Mary Martha, Phoebe, her irresponsible surfer ex-husband, Rory – and, of course, the monk downstairs – that makes this story shine.

Perfect for fans who love the artistry of Daniel Silva and the passion of Greg Iles.

Stalin’s Russia, 1950. Brilliant young artist Pasha Kalmenov is arrested and sent without trial to a forced-labor camp in the Arctic gulag. This is a camp like no other. Although conditions are harsh and degrading, the prisoners are not to be worked to death in a coal mine or on a construction project. Their task is to forge the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci.

There is a high price to be paid for failing to reach the required standard of perfection; particularly as the camp commandant has his own secret agenda. When the executions begin, Pasha realizes that only his artistic talent can protect him. But for how long? Worse horrors are to come. If he survives them, will life still be worth living?

Eli Tremaine has had one great regret in his life. When she walks into his shop one day looking for a grave stone for her daughter, their long buried but unresolved past asserts itself amidst her grief and failing marriage.

Eli, a stone mason, is sure of only one thing, a fundamental truth he has learned working stone: You can spend days or weeks whittling a block down toward the essence of what you want from it and lose it all at the crucial moment by giving in to the temptation of the quick and easy stroke. The way to work with stone is the counterintuitive path of most resistance, the patient grinding at the stone’s most unyielding core. It is the slowest way to work, but it is the only way to keep the truth in the stone and not leave it on the floor of the shop.

In this wonderfully contemplative novel, the author of The Monk Downstairs, Tim Farrington, once again uses his formidable powers of prose and his keen knowledge of the human condition to fashion this story of how we fall and get up again. Using the slow work of carving tombstones as a metaphor, he tells the story of two people who have loved each other for most of their lives, but the weight of grief and regret may be too much to overcome the weight of their shared past – and their heartfelt, electric present.

Edison McDaniels’s wonderfully evocative narration brings a further authenticity to the words and is a delight for the listener.

“Total entertainment…one of those roaring new-wave horror novels that has the power to keep the reader hooked from the first few lines.” (Whitley Strieber)

“A terrifying new novel by the author of Audrey Rose.” (Chicago Tribune)

“A standout!… Wonderfully entertaining.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Engrossing…sweeps the reader along.” (Los Angeles Times)

Golgotha Falls lies in a desolate and blighted valley in Northern Massachusetts where, in 1919, Father Bernard K. Lovell, priest of the Church of the Eternal Sorrows, fell prey to isolation and despair and entered a dark night of madness, necrophilia, and suicide. Then, in 1978, a Jesuit priest was sent to reconsecrate the church but found himself seized in the foul grip of bestiality.

Now, Father Malcolm, a saintly priest, has arrived to do battle with the forces of Satan that have possessed the church, while two brilliant scientists of the paranormal from Harvard University have traveled to the site to investigate a century’s worth of bizarre happenings. None of them are prepared for what they will encounter – an evil dating back to the dawn of time that could bring about the end of days….

In Golgotha Falls (1984), Frank De Felitta, author of the best-selling novels of the occult Audrey Rose (1975) and The Entity (1978), delivers another chilling pause-resister of horror and the supernatural. The Entity is also available from Valancourt Books.

In this compelling and meticulously researched audiobook on the Vietnam War era, David Gerhardt blends his riveting firsthand experience with documented facts. The result is a historical war memoir offering a comprehensive perspective on one of America’s most notoriously divisive eras and brutal armed conflicts.

Whether they fought in it, demonstrated against it, or subsisted through the tumultuous times, Vietnam belonged to the baby boomer generation. These historical times were defined with drugs, sex, rock bands, assassinations of public figures, and riots in cities and on college campuses. From the war’s politics to the twists and turns of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, this compelling account weaves history and statistics with pulse-pounding stories of survival, creating a fabric of understanding for a nation still trying to reconcile this dark and bloody chapter of America’s past.

Beginning with boot camp and ending with the postwar brutalities of communist regimes in Southeast Asia, including the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia – led by the evil Pol Pot – this unique account of the Vietnam War years is replete with sardonic tales of “boom-boom” girls, snakes, drugs, and some twisted soldier humor. As part of the last marine combat platoon, Gerhardt is the perfect one to tell it.

A flesh-and-soul-devouring addiction runs rampant through the dark playground of the Hollywood elite in this tale of horror from a Bram Stoker Award winner.

Welcome to Los Angeles, where every addiction is encouraged….

Struggling Hollywood screenwriter Tom Prentice can hardly believe that the emaciated and mutilated corpse lying on the morgue slab was once his ex-wife. Then his roommate’s missing brother turns up in a local hospital having sliced open his own chest and legs for some sick, inexplicable reason. In Oakland, the Reverend Garner, a recovering addict, leaves his ministry in search of his teenage daughter, who was last seen in the company of her ghoulish kidnapper. And the Los Angeles police are meanwhile baffled in their hunt for the elusive “Wetbones” serial killer who leaves nothing of his victims behind except a damp, grisly pile of bones. 

Though Tom, the reverend, and the LAPD are on separate quests for answers, they are all being led into the darkest shadows of Hollywood, where the debauchery never ceases and pleasure is a drug that devours human flesh, blood, and sanity. But the true source of the all-consuming addiction is the most horrifying revelation of all, for it is not of this rational Earth. 

From International Horror Guild Award-winning author John Shirley comes a true masterwork of modern terror. It’s decidedly not for the faint of heart.

When Bill Williams, a half Irish, half Athabaskan Indian, left his native Alaskan village after a disastrous bear hunt, he left behind not only the only home he had ever known, but also the girl he loved. It was then that the true adventure of his life began. He worked on a Yukon riverboat, searched for gold, and took a job building the Alaskan Highway. When the country became involved in World War II, Bill signed up to fight and was immediately sent overseas. The experiences of war were devastating and the trauma left him with deep indelible scars. After surviving the Battle of the Bulge, Bill returned home only to discover that his girlfriend was married to his brother and the village was no longer a welcome place for him. 

At this point, Bill’s life takes a downward plunge into a world of alcoholism, unemployment, and homelessness. But an unlikely series of events suddenly sheds a beacon of light on the hopelessness of his life, and he is given a second chance at love and happiness – but only if he rises to the challenge.

September 1862.

After a string of victories in Virginia, Robert E. Lee marches his Army of Northern Virginia northward across the Potomac River in search of one final battlefield triumph as the best way to bring about Southern independence. Little goes right for Lee when the garrison at Harpers Ferry refuses to evacuate and a lost order reveals his plans to George McClellan and his resurgent Army of the Potomac. The result is a divided Southern army severely weakened by straggling, a failed effort to hold the gaps through South Mountain, and a final stand at Sharpsburg on September 17 (the bloodiest day in American history) with the Potomac River and a single ford at Lee’s back.

Alexander Rossino weaves these momentous hours together brilliantly in Six Days in September. Listeners live the high-stakes drama through the gritty minutiae experienced by a host of historical characters – including an injured and exhausted General Lee, the pious, hard-fighting Stonewall Jackson, a frustrated but reliable James Longstreet, the acerbic Harvey Hill, and the irrepressible Kyd Douglas. Rossino also displays a keen understanding of daily travails undergone by the common foot soldiers and the unique hardships Sharpsburg’s civilians lived through when two major armies decided to wage war around their sleepy Maryland village.

Six Days in September is a sweeping account, brilliantly written with a “you-are-there” sense that will linger long after you finish this audiobook.

Brittany: In the summer of 1928, 12-year-old Jack Graham and his brother, Francis, befriend the quiet German Otto Finkel, and together with the enigmatic Jean-Luc and virtuous Marco, they are involved in a serious case of misadventure that leaves a man dead and one of the boys disfigured.

The memories for most of them fade with time, but for Otto, the mental scarring matches the physical scarring. Is this the reason why, years later, in the turmoil of war, he finds himself as an officer in the Waffen SS?

Largely unbeknownst to them, the paths of the schoolboys, now young men, impinge on Otto’s life as each chooses to serve their respective countries in different ways. 

Following their wartime exploits, from the beaches of Dunkirk to the purge of the Roman ghetto, from the horrors of Drancy Deportation Camp to the Nazi ratlines of postwar Europe, this is a powerful story of war, grief, love, and regret.
