Three guys I didn’t recognize stood outside the door as I came down the steps of a Chicago apartment building. I had just finished up collecting newspaper fees for delivering the daily paper. One stepped inside, walked toward me, and said, “What’s up?” I looked at him and said, “What’s up with you?” As he stepped closer I saw a gun in his waistband and it made me think of my father, who always said, “Think before you react, son.” If I reach for his gun, I thought, he could be faster than me. He also had buddies just outside the door. My decision was made for me when the boys stepped into the hallway and surrounded me. It took me only a second to think, Is your life worth 90 bucks of newspaper collection fees? I pulled the money out of my pocket and handed it over, and he said, “Now that’s what I’m talking about.” He pulled out his gun, pointed it at me, and pulled the trigger. "Debut author Braddock grew up in a tough neighborhood on Chicago's South Side.... The African-American author...starkly relates his encounters with racism in Chicago and in the South. Overall, Braddock's life has been a notably dramatic one, and his trajectory from inauspicious origins to being a leader of soldiers is as gripping as it is inspiring.... Braddock...ably delivers a cinematic tale of personal triumph while also offering an illuminating portal into military culture.” (Kirkus Reviews) 1. Language: English.

My name is Zoe Lane, and I see dead people. Sure, being a medium isn’t easy. Things like dating, working, and even sleeping are all hard to do when there’s a ghost hovering nearby, demanding your attention. But it’s not all bad, and I’d like to think I’m getting pretty good at it...most days.Except today, when 21-year-old Penelope Muffin appeared. She looks like she just stepped off the set of a bad horror movie, and she has no recollection of how she got here. Spirits are supposed to be restored to their prime after they die, and I have no idea what to make of her disheveled state. Frankly, she’s freaking me out, but it’s my job to help her. The problem is, no one knows she’s in trouble but me, and when you go around town talking ghosts and murder, you start to look crazy. Now, the police think I’m the suspect - well, just Sheriff Vance, who doesn’t trust me anyway. I’ve got to find Penelope’s body, her killer, and figure out what happened - and I have to do it fast. Otherwise, I’ll be locked up for a crime I didn’t commit. It would be a whole lot easier if Penelope would stop obsessing about her Instagram account and help me solve this crime before it’s too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Wilson.

My name is Zoe Lane, and I see dead people. I'm not your typical medium. The kind portrayed on your favorite television shows. The spirits who visit me aren't interested in reuniting with loved ones. Nope. The spirits I connect with have sought me out for one thing and one thing only: justice. A task that would be easier if I were a homicide detective instead of a 23-year-old wannabe journalist with a love of hot romance novels. Now, the spirit of Andrew "Drew" Foster is here, and he's desperate for my help. Drew was convicted 16 years ago for the murder of real estate agent, Margo Stolper. A crime I'm not so sure he committed. It turns out Margo may not have been completely honest in her dealings, and even worse, I think she was a medium just like me. Was she killed because people knew about her gift? With a possible medium murderer on the loose, I need to be extra cautious. But justice must be served, and if Drew wants to rest in peace, then we need to clear his name. The problem is, I've made many enemies over the last few months. Well, just one. Sheriff Vance, the most powerful man in Fernn Valley. He's not about to let me unravel the only murder case he's ever solved. Not without a fight. I'm ready, though. At least I thought I was. There's a twist to this case even I didn't see coming. If I'm not careful, exonerating Drew just might be the last thing I do. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Wilson.

My name is Zoe Lane, and I see dead people. I thought I was getting pretty good at this whole medium gig...until today. Have you ever been kissing the man of your dreams when his dead ex-girlfriend appears? No? I have, and let me tell you it's a total mood killer. Her name is Vanessa Tobin, and she's a journalist with a passion for truth and justice and self-help books. The last thing she remembers is investigating the disappearance of 20-year-old Lux Piefer. She was close to solving the case. Too close. Now we need to find Lux and catch Vanessa's killer. Helping us is my new partner who can see glimpses of the future. You'd think this would be useful, but the thing about the future is that it's ever-changing. The more we dig, the more things change, and the more things change, the more we realize that we're not dealing with a missing person case and a homicide. What we've got is a serial killer on our hands with a list of victims that is growing by the minute.Did I mention we have 24 hours to figure this all out or one of us will die? Considering one out of three of us is already dead, chances are high that it will be me. If I survive today, I'm going to need a long, ghostless vacation. 1. Language: English.

I think the first second I saw him I felt it was like a punch in the stomach and immediately knew he was going to turn my world upside down and steal my heart. At first I ignored that feeling, I tried to suppress it, but it was a doomed struggle. It's not something he said or did, it was the aura around him, exudes power, prestige and security. He came into my life out of the blue and shook them. And the craziest thing is that I thought I could never love again with such force. I knew a different world, fast, large, luminous, but still was swept out of control. Whenever he is close to me I feel safe, protected, my place among his strong arms. When he leaves, I feel emptiness, as if something is missing. Worst of all in this situation is that I do not know what I'm afraid more - to lose him or myself.
