Where God´s Angels Feared To Tread: Ray Bordogna
Remember turning on the television and seeing shots of rockets fired at night in the first Gulf War, the first massacre victims in Kosovo, the US bomb that killed women and children in a bunker in Baghdad, and Mullah Omar declaring holy war for the Taliban? The men and women at the Frontline news agency believed the public should see the true horrors of war and courageously went where other news organisations feared to tread. Risking everything to show the truth, they travelled the world’s most dangerous places in a quest to live life to the full, a quest some paid for with their lives. This is their story. Shortlisted for the 2006 Orwell Prize. Updated and with a new foreword by the BBC’s John Simpson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Loyn.

In Shadow Man, Cody McFadyen took the suspense thriller where other writers have feared to tread. He introduced readers to a heroine every bit as dark and edgy as the serial killers she hunts: Special Agent Smoky Barrett. Now, in his latest novel, McFadyen brings Agent Barrett back to track down a killer who breaks all the rules. Get ready for a shattering confrontation with the very essence of human evil. ´´I want to talk to Smoky Barrett or I´ll kill myself.? The girl is sixteen, at the scene of a grisly triple homicide, and has a gun to her head. She claims ´´The Stranger? killed her adoptive family, that he´s been following her all her life, killing everyone she ever loved, and that no one believes her. No one has. Until now. Special Agent Smoky Barrett is head of the violent crimes unit in Los Angeles, the part of the FBI reserved for tracking down the worst of the worst. Her team has been handpicked from among the nation´s elite law enforcement specialists and they are as obsessed and relentless as the psychos they hunt; they´ll have to be to deal with this case. For another vicious double homicide reveals a killer embarked on a dark crusade of trauma and death: an ´´artist? who´s molding sixteen-year-old Sarah into the perfect victim?and the ultimate weapon. But Smoky Barrett has another, more personal reason for catching The Stranger?an adopted daughter and a new life that are worth protecting at any cost. This time Smoky is going to have to put it all on the line. Because The Stranger is all too real, all too close, and all too relentless. And when he finally shows his face, if she´s not ready to confront her worst fear, Smoky won´t have time to do anything but die.

Robert K. Brown, former Green Beret, after a bizarre military career that succeeded in getting him kicked out of Special Forces not once but twice, and completing the Command and General Staff College without a security clearance, while meantime being wounded in Nam, finally found his true calling as a publisher. Thirty-eight years ago he launched an upstart magazine from his basement called Soldier of Fortune, which pushed the bounds of journalism to its limits with his untamed brand of reporting - a camera in one hand, a gun in the other, and soon thereafter he discovered that he’d established a worldwide community. His wildly popular, notorious magazine became an icon for action-seekers in the U.S. and around the world. In this long-awaited book, Brown tells his own story, taking listeners into combat zones where he and his daring combat journalists, or fearless ´´dogs of war´´, trotted across the globe. His rogue warrior journalists embedded themselves with anti-Communist guerillas or freedom fighters, often training and fighting with rebels against oppressive regimes. In their revolutionary journalistic style, they created the action and then wrote about it. Generals and leaders of exotic armies welcomed the SOF visitors and led them or allowed them to tread into unchartered territory. Brown himself accompanied teams to work and fight with the Rhodesians; the Afghans during the Afghan-Russo war, Christian Phalange in Lebanon; ethnic minority Karens in Burma; the ethnic tribes fighting the Communist government of Laos; the army of El Salvador; and the armed forces of struggling Croatia. Brown sent medical teams, often into the jaws of danger, to Burma, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Afghanistan, Bosnia, El Salvador, and Nicaragua, and also into Peru after a devastating earthquake. In short, the ´´Soldiers of Fortune´´ went where even the U.S. government feared to tread, and they did it with gallant style, not fearing risk but wel 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Marantz.

Captain Salty Sam and his crew were some of the most feared pirates of the seven seas during the 1500s. Whenever the Salty Sam´s ship the White Pearl was sailing near other ships. If any ship got too close to the White Pearl it was evident they would be fired upon and if any gold was aboard, it would be taken by Salty Sam and his crew. Salty Sam was about to meet his match when Captain Peg Leg´s ship the Black Death came inches beside the White Pearl almost scraping its side. This just angered Captain Salty Sam. Salty Sam said, ´´No one!! I mean No one!! Treads the same waters as the White Pearl, without a fight´´ Salty Sam shouted out to his men, ´´Get the cannons ready and when I give the signal, fire upon that ship, I want it sunk.´´ His men were ready for battle.

I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in.
