Friends until death... Every year, the Morris Avenue Boys - chums since childhood - gather for a Father´s Day reunion dinner. Now late in middle age, these men can bask in the rewards of honest success. So which of them seizes the opportunity that fateful evening to pull out an ice pick and stab to death the group´s most celebrated member, novelist Arthur Wein? As investigator (and former nun) Christine Bennett peels back the layers of the past, 40 years´ worth of secrets emerge from the shadows - and the web of lies, theft, adultery, and blackmail woven by the once-innocent Bronx playmates rivals even the darkest plot of the dead man´s novels. But in real life, this flesh-and-blood villain may never be caught.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dee Macalouso. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/008144/bk_adbl_008144_sample.mp3.

This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last 60 years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved America´s confidence. Legacy of Ashes is based on more than 50,000 documents, primarily from the archives of the CIA. Everything is on the record. There are no anonymous sources, no blind quotations. With shocking revelations that will make headlines, Tim Weiner gets at the truth and tells us how the CIA´s failures have profoundly jeopardized our national security. 1. Language: English.
