A research trip to Guatemala illuminates truths both intimate and global for four young travelers. The graduate students arrived in Guatemala energized and ready to take on the world. They planned to follow the path of coffee beans from a peasant coffee-growing community in the western highlands through the chain of buyers, co-ops, exporters, and roasters, all the way to a café in San Francisco. As the students investigate the profit made at every link in the coffee chain, they confront a series of unexpected events that illuminate globalization in surprising ways. They befriend a coffee-growing peasant family who recounts their family stories of fortune and tragedy wrought by coffee over generations of their Mayan family history. The relationship deepens between the family and the students. Then catastrophe strikes and the students must choose how to respond. A surprising, beautifully engaging novel that illustrates the many ethical dilemmas of our increasingly globalized economy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Borquez.

A new novel in John Ringo's best-selling Black Tide Rising series. The sequel to The Valley of Shadows. Tom Smith used to be somebody. Now he's just another refugee, fleeing the smoking ruins of civilization. Well, maybe not just another refugee. Late of the Bank of the Americas where he used to be the global managing director for security, Tom and his fellow survivors watched New York City burn. His plan to the save New York long enough to find a cure for the zombie virus hadn't survived the bloody scrimmage between angry cops, cunning gangsters, and rapacious City officials. Now only millions of infected humans, driven mad by the highly infectious tailored rabies virus, inhabited the city. But Tom and some trusted allies were able to stay one step ahead and escaped offshore. Now they're holed up in a safe house in coastal Virginia and it's time to break out. Between him and his objective, one of the bank's prepared evacuation camps in the Cumberland Valley, are hundreds of miles of clogged roads, burnt-out towns, and howling mobs of infected humans who know only hunger. He must corral his motley team, complete with middle-schoolers, to navigate the treacherous landscape. And yet he feels his odds are good. But there's always someone smarter. And they like things just the way they are. Without a fat checkbook and the team of hired spec-ops mercenaries it used to bring, how will Tom Smith fend off entrepreneurial marauders, a brilliant sociopath or two, and a kill-count hungry member of the E-4 mafia? And if he pulls it off, no one is sure how they will they re-start civilization. But Tom Smith has the spark of an idea. 1.

In 1959, nine hikers of the Dyatlov expedition perish while crossing a remote mountain range in the Soviet Union. More than 65 years later, the circumstances surrounding their deaths remain a mystery. In 1995, Julie Sigler is killed in an Air Force training exercise crash, but the circumstances of her death are never called into question...until she appears on TV, 20 years later, standing beside the current president of the United States. Disavowed and on the run, the black ops Chess Team is in search of one of their own: former President Tom Duncan. Held in a secret US government detainment site after sacrificing his freedom to ensure the team's, Duncan hasn't been seen or heard from in a year. Meanwhile, the team's leader, Jack Sigler, is on the trail of a woman who just might be his sister Julie - back from the dead and working for his enemies. Drawn into a labyrinth of intrigue, King discovers a scheme to topple the US government and forge a new global empire. To stop a war that could destroy civilization, King and the Chess Team infiltrate the frozen Russian wilderness, battle the elements and the inhuman abominations spawned in Cold War laboratories, and go head-to-head with a powerful enemy, ascending from the pages of history. Torn between loyalty to his family, his teammates and his country, King faces his most daunting challenge yet. The stakes have never been higher, or more personal. Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the international best-selling duo behind Herculean and Cannibal are back for the eighth novel in the pulse-pounding Jack Sigler Thriller series. With the ancient mystery of James Rollins and frenetic pacing of Matthew Reilly, and with an all too plausible civilization-ending scenario, Empire will please new listeners and longtime Sigler fans alike. 1.

“I LOVE THE GRAY MAN.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child   “BOURNE FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM.”—New York Times bestselling author James Rollins Praise for Mission Critical “This novel is vintage Greaney, with a tight plot, a ticking clock, and a sympathetic antihero…This is good, Clancy-esque entertainment. May the evildoers of the world have nightmares that Violator becomes a real person.”— Kirkus Reviews “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) “Greaney knows what military action fans want and delivers in spades.”— Publishers Weekly “Mesmerizing…Equal parts revenge drama and conspiracy tale, Mission Critical combines the best of John le Carré and Robert Ludlum. Greaney has fashioned a masterpiece of an action thriller, mixed with deep-seated global politics, placing him on level footing with the likes of Brad Thor, Brad Taylor and the late, great Vince Flynn.”— Providence Journal “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) Praise for Agent in Place “Reminiscent of John le Carré…Exquisite in its execution, the relentlessly riveting, “Agent in Place” firmly plants Greaney alongside Brad Taylor and Brad Thor as the masters of this thriller subgenre.” —Providence Journal  “Readers of the great Tom Clancy will salivate over this fast-moving and well-plotted yarn, which is part of a consistently appealing series in which each assignment is billed as the most dangerous ever. Somehow, Greaney cranks out one winner after another. That's a lot of work for the Gray Man and plenty of vicarious pleasure for thriller fans.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Greaney’s steady escalation of the risks that Court faces, and the exceedingly clever ways he tackles them, make this entry in the exemplary Gray Man series a can’t-miss.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for Gunmetal Gray   “Fans of RPG, Hong Kong action films, and high-octane storytelling will love the Gray Man, who battles full-bore through this fast-paced series.”— The Washington Post   “A nonstop barrage of action.”— The Memphis Commercial Appeal   “Jam-packed with action and adventure. It is as modern as tomorrow’s headlines and moves with fascinating speed from country to country.”— Lincoln Journal Star    “This one is fat, fast, and fun. Clancy’s spirit lives on.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
