The year 1777: In the throes of the Revolutionary War, Landon Mansion is commandeered by British Lord ´´Butcher” Bedford. He stabs Lucy Tarleton - who spurned his king and his love - leaving her to die in her father’s arms. Now: After the day’s final tour, docent Allison Leigh makes her rounds while locking up…and finds a colleague slumped over Bedford’s desk, impaled on his own replica bayonet. Resident ghosts may be the stock-in-trade of stately Philadelphia homes, but Allison - a noted historian - is indignant at the prospect of ´´ghost hunters” investigating this apparent murder. Agent Tyler Montague knows his hauntings and his history. But while Allison is skeptical of the newcomer, a second mysterious murder occurs. Has ´´Butcher” Bedford resurfaced? Or is there another malevolent force at work in Landon Mansion? Wary, yet deeply attracted, Allison has to trust in Tyler and work with him to discover just what uninvited guest - dead or alive - has taken over the house. Or their lives could become history! 1.

The Real-Life World´s Most Interesting Men: Vic...

Everybody imagines the world´s most interesting man to be a fictional, gray-haired lothario who drinks Mexican beer and boasts of his legendary exploits. But what if a man like this really lived? It turns out he did, and there were two of them--both Victorian explorers. The first was Richard Franics Burton, an adventurer who learned 29 languages, went undercover as a Muslim on a pilgrimage to Mecca, and wrote 50 books on topics ranging from a translation of the Kama Sutra to a manual on bayonet exercises. The second was Sir Richard Stanley, who led a massive expedition through Africa to find Dr. Livingston. By the time of his death in 1904, he had explored much of the continent and developed much of the interior. Stanley´s greatest expedition was his 1874-1877 crossing of Africa on foot to the mouth of the Congo, traveling more than 7,000 miles and contending with the threat of malaria, unknown wild animals in the jungle, unfriendly tribesmen, harsh weather conditions, worries about running out of food, and any number of incomprehensible threats to their lives on that dangerous voyage. Learn about the lives of these two extraordinary men and how a beer pitchman could never hope to live up to them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.

What is it like to broadcast the fateful words ´´Mayday, Mayday, Mayday,´´ then jump into the unknown? The members of one of the world´s most unusual brotherhoods provide the answers in this incredible book. Formed during the Second World War to celebrate the survival of pilots who had been forced to bail out over water, the Goldfish Club has taken on new members ever since. They share one pivotal moment, but their experiences beyond this couldn´t be more different. One World War II veteran will never forget having to walk through a hostile German town at the point of a Nazi bayonet. An American B-17 navigator found his courage in an SS prison cell after his Flying Fortress broke up over Italian waters. A Wessex helicopter pilot struggled against the Arctic chill of the North Norwegian Sea. Their stories and many others are told here. All are different. All are utterly gripping. 1.

Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe Du Hoc - the Ra...

In the tradition of Band of Brothers, acclaimed combat historian Patrick K. O’Donnell cinematically tells one of World War II’s greatest untold stories. It is said that the right man in the right place at the right time can mean the difference between victory and defeat. This is the dramatic story of 68 soldiers in the US Army´s Second Ranger Battalion, Company D - ´´Dog Company´´ - who made that difference, time and again. From D-day, when German guns atop Pointe du Hoc threatened the Allied landings and the men of Dog Company scaled the sheer 90-foot cliffs to destroy them; to the slopes of Hill 400, in Germany’s Hürtgen Forest, where the Rangers launched a desperate bayonet charge across an open field; to a ´´quiet´´ section of the Ardennes, where Dog Company suddenly found itself on the tip of the spear at the Battle of the Bulge; the men of Dog Company made the difference. America had many heroes in World War II; however, few can say that, but for them, the course of the war would have been very different. The right men, the right place, the right time - Dog Company. Patrick K. O’Donnell is the award-winning author of eight books, including the highly acclaimed account of the Battle of Fallujah We Were One. He has provided historical consulting for Band of Brothers and multiple documentaries. He lives in Austin, Texas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Pruden.
