Summary

Detective “Fang” Mulheisen returns in a rollicking thriller hailed as “a quirky, comic delight that brings to mind early Elmore Leonard” (Booklist).   Detroit’s Det. Sgt. “Fang” Mulheisen is far from home and hunting for his seemingly unkillable nemesis, a hired gun named Joe Service, who survived a gunshot to the head and escaped a hospital with the help of his beguiling nurse.   Joe is in Salt Lake City looking for his longtime lover and partner in crime, Helen Sedlacek, who is in hiding with millions in stolen mob money. The problem is, Joe’s injuries have left his memory a bit shaky—even if his skills with a gun are still rock solid—which leads to a whole lot of dead bodies in his wake.   And those bodies leave a trail for Mulheisen to track his quarry. But there are a lot of other unpleasant people looking for Joe—all with itchy trigger fingers. And Mulheisen has to get between them all before his manhunt becomes a bloodbath.   With a cast of unforgettably mad characters and an explosive climax, this is a “murderously funny” read you won’t be able to put down (Kirkus Reviews).

    Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes during an audiobook recording session? Here is your opportunity to find out! Sometimes the words don't flow quite as easily as you would think, and when the performers run into a tongue twister, the results can be hilarious and bring out the true personalities of our readers. We will put you behind the microphone and in the booth with Kris Faulkner, Cameron Beierle, Jerry Sciarrio, Gene Engene, Rebecca Cook, Reed McColm and many other popular Books In Motion readers as they try to recover from an accent malfunction, or attempt to hold back a giggling episode. As recording sessions would sometimes turn into a comedy of errors, our engineers began a tradition of saving the best outtakes to play back for their own amusement or at company parties. After years of compiling these snippets, we ended up with over 2 hours of bloopers, and we thought that our faithful customers would enjoy these rare moments as well, and appreciate an invitation inside the making of an audiobook.

    The Gilded Age A Tale of Today

    Originally published in 1873, The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today is the only novel Twain co-wrote (C.D. Warner was a good friend and neighbor of the Clemens family in Hartford, and the collaboration sprang from their wive's challenge and encouragement). The title, "The Gilded Age" became synonymous with graft, materialism and corruption in public life, which are well represented in this work. Like others of his works, this one reflects truths about American Society that remain pertinent today. Many of the characters and incidents that occur in the Gilded Age had their real-life origins in Clemens relatives and history, a fact which he revealed in his newly published (2011) Autobiography.

    In the small Colorado town of Summit View, a surprising multi-generational mix of women from Grace Church meet once a week to pass a hot dish and to pray. But the Potluck Club, as they call themselves, is a recipe for disaster when they send up enough misinformed prayers to bring down a church. And the funny thing: the more they pray, the more troubles seem to come their way. It isn't until they invite God to the table that they discover friendship is the spice of life, and a little dash of grace, just like salt, goes a long way.With charming, down-home characters, humor, poignancy, and a recipe in every chapter, The Potluck Club will keep readers hungering for more.
