Liz Carlyle has been transferred to Counter-Espionage, along with her research sidekick Peggy Kingsolving. Although the department has downsized since the end of the Cold War, there are still spies: including Russian spies who now keep an eye on the international financial community as well as the wealthy, influential Russian ´´oligarchs´´ in London. Liz is assigned to stop a Russian government plot to ´´silence´´ one of these oligarchs, Nikita Brunovsky, who is an increasingly vocal opponent of the Putin regime. Almost simultaneously, Liz and Peggy learn of the presence of an Illegal Support officer in London, one Vladimir Rykov, who is putatively attached to the Russian embassy. An Illegal is someone who operates (often for many years) under a completely fabricated identity - and Rykov, it seem, has been sent to London to help an Illegal now based there. To protect Brunovsky from his Kremlin foes, Liz goes undercover and joins the oligarch´s retinue. As she tries to determine who around the Russian might be willing to betray him, she has to consider too whether this traitor may not also be the Illegal she and Peggy are seeking. 1.

The only thing more dangerous than the bad boy you left behind is the man he´s become. If she was such a good fortune-teller, she should´ve seen it coming. But part-time Tarot-reader Selena Moon is as surprised as anyone when Jim Bishop, the bad boy she left behind, returns from who-knows - where to reclaim the one girl he could never forget. Torn between her new life down South and family obligations up North, Selena has no time for love, romance, or any other complication. And who can blame her? The first guy to claim her heart, along with her innocence, spoiled her for the safer, easier guys who came after. Armed, dangerous, and still smarting from Selena´s teary rejection years earlier, Bishop vowed never to return to the city of his youth, where he excelled at two things - inviting trouble and making a mess of things, particularly his relationship with the only girl he ever loved.

The splurge leaves him with only enough bitcoin to purchase lower quality marijuana than he normally sells. Unfortunately, Ben doesn´t realize one of his customers has been flipping his product to a murderous, one-eyed Nazi. He´s soon sucked into a hellish nightmare of dread, drugs, and death.

There is a war going on for the future of our country. Most people know that. What they may not know is that if Christians lose, the result won´t merely be enduring public policy we disagree with, it will be a prison sentence for those who oppose it. We´ve all seen the attack coming. First the Supreme Court said kids can´t pray in school. Then the Ten Commandments were ripped from the classrooms. Now pastors are being removed from their pulpits and put in jail for speaking out against homosexuality (Sweden). And things are only getting worse. How in the world did we get to this place? And why is it that Christians are singled out in this assault on morality? Serving as a wake-up call for America, this book will expose the truth that Christianity is being criminalized and that we must stand up against it now. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Janet L.

Explores what it means to be undocumented in a legal, social, economic, and historical context In this illuminating work, immigrant rights activist Aviva Chomsky shows how ´´illegality´´ and ´´undocumentedness´´ are concepts that were created to exclude and exploit. With a focus on US policy, she probes how people, especially Mexican and Central Americans, have been assigned this status - and to what ends. Blending history with human drama, Chomsky explores what it means to be undocumented in a legal, social, economic, and historical context. The result is a powerful testament of the complex, contradictory, and ever-shifting nature of status in America. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frankie Corzo.
