  1. The Third Bullet by: Stephen Hunter (Unabridged)

    BOB LEE SWAGGER IS BACK IN A THRILLER FIFTY YEARS IN THE MAKING... It’s not even a clue. It’s a whisper, a trace, a ghost echo, drifting down through the decades via chance connections so fragile that they would disintegrate in the puff of a breath. But it’s enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time. Swagger begins his slow night stalk through a much-traveled landscape. But he’s asking questions that few have asked before: Why did the third bullet explode? Why did Lee Harvey Oswald, about to become the most hunted man on earth, risk it all by returning to his rooming house to secure a pistol he easily could have brought with him? How could a conspiracy that went unpenetrated for fifty years have been thrown together in the two and a half days between the announcement of the president’s route and the assassination itself? As Bob investigates, another voice enters the narrative: knowing, ironic, almost familiar, that of a gifted, Yale-educated veteran of the CIA Plans Division. Hugh Meachum has secrets and the means and the will to keep them buried. When weighed against his own legacy. Swagger’s life is an insignificant expense—but to blunt the threat, he’ll first have to ambush the sniper. As each man hunts the other across today’s globe and through the thickets of history, The Third Bullet builds to an explosive climax that will finally prove what Bob Lee Swagger has always known: it’s never too late for justice.

  2. The Wolf at the Door by: Jack Higgins (Unabridged)

    “THE WOLF AT THE DOOR IS YOUR GREATEST DANGER, AND NOT ONLY IN WINTER.” —RUSSIAN PROVERB On Long Island, a trusted operative for the President nudges his boat up to a pier, when a man materializes out of the rain and shoots him. In London, General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, approaches his car on a side street, when there is a flash, and the car explodes. In New York, a former British soldier, who is also a bit more than that, takes a short walk in Central Park to stretch his legs, when a man comes up fast behind him, a pistol in his hand. And that is only the beginning. Someone is targeting the members of the elite intelligence unit known as “the Prime Minister’s private army” and all those who work with them, and whoever is doing it has a lot of resources at his command. Sean Dillon has an idea of who it may be, an old nemesis who has clearly gotten tired of their interference in his schemes. But proving it is going to be a difficult task. And surviving it the hardest task of all... Read By: Michael Page Pub. Date: January 2010 Edition Description: Unabridged 7 CDs, 8 Hrs 9 Min. Series: Sean Dillon #17 Learn More
  3. The Judas Gate by: Jack Higgins (Unabridged)

    “With Fresh Plots, Interesting Characters, and Vibrant Settings, Jack Higgins Has Firmly Cemented His Reputation as One of the World’s Most Successful Thriller Writers.” —The Strand Magazine A disturbing audiotape has made its way to General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, and from him to the President of the United States: battlefield chatter from an ambush in Helmand province, Afghanistan, in which twelve U.S. Army Rangers and a British medical team died. Most of the Taliban voices are Afghan, but not all of them—shockingly, some of them are British, and one in particular, the voice of the commander, bears an Irish accent. The idea that one of their own could be responsible for such a massacre is appalling, and Ferguson immediately puts Sean Dillon in charge of hunting the traitor down. But Dillon has his own way of doing things and, he will eventually discover, so does his quarry. Not only will Dillon be going to war—the war will be coming to him. Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, The Judas Gate is an unforgettable novel by the man “who has produced some of the best suspense fiction of the past fifty years” (The San Diego Union-Tribune).

  8. The Saboteurs by: W.E.B. Griffin (Unabridged)

    A Long-Awaited Men at War Adventure Featuring the OSS During World War II If coincidence had thrown these men together in any normal military organization, and if, improbably, they had become buddies there, and commanding officer with enough sense would have broken up the gang as threats to “good military order and discipline.” But they weren’t in any normal military organization. They were in the Office of Strategic Services. The Battle of the Atlantic is at its peak. Packs of German U-boats are hunting and sinking U.S. supply ships. Ships are burning at their moorings in U.S. ports, and a series of explosions has afflicted trains and train stations around the country—is it all accidental or is it sabotage? Meanwhile, Allied forces are secretly preparing to invade first Sicily and then Italy, and there is a lot of work that needs to be done beforehand, some with the most unlikely of helping hands. As the war heats up, “Wild Bill” Donovan’s agents—Dick Canidy, Eric Fulmar, Stan Fine, and the rest of the crew, answerable only to Donovan and the president—suddenly find themselves battling on two fronts at once...and fate is just about to deal them a few surprises.

    W.E.B.

Are the OSS agents up to it? They certainly think so. And then the body is found floating off the coast of Spain… Filled to the brim with action, character, and the deep understanding of the military heart and mind that have made Griffin’s books outstanding, The Double Agents is irresistible storytelling from a master of the craft.

    By Order of the President: It Could Happen Tomorrow. Are We Ready? Two armed men board a 727 all but forgotten at an airfield in Angola. Hijacking the jet, they then slit the throat of the lone crew and fly to parts unknown. The consternation is immediate, as the CIA, FBI, and other agencies race to find out what happened, in the process elbowing one another in the sides a little too vigorously. Fed up, the president of the United States turns to an outside investigator to determine the truth, an Army intelligence officer serving as special assistant to the secretary of homeland security. Delta Force major Carlos Guillermo Castillo, known as Charley, is the son of a German mother and a Tex-Mex father who was killed in the Vietnam War and awarded a Medal of Honor. A West Point graduate, a pilot, and a veteran of Desert Storm, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts—and the reality behind them. Traveling undercover, he flies to Africa, and there, helped and hindered by unexpected allies and determined enemies, begins to untangle a story of frightening dimensions—a story that, unless he can do something about it, will end very, very badly indeed, not only for Castillo…but for all of America.
