A joint US-Russian Special Forces raid against a hidden laboratory yields an alarming discovery. Anatoly Reznikov, the deranged bioweapons scientist stolen from US custody a few years earlier, vanished minutes before the attack - taking his deadly work with him. In the United States, Beltway power brokers grapple with True America´s surprise presidential win, finding the new administration to be anything but easy to work with. Karl Berg, demoted within the CIA due to the sudden shift in agency leadership, seeks to stay out of trouble, and retire quietly - a task he finds impossible when news of Reznikov´s near-capture unofficially reaches his desk. Oblivious to the growing threats domestic and abroad, Daniel and Jessica Petrovich finalize their plan to abandon the ´´Black Flag´´ business for good, only to have it delayed by close-hitting news. A last-minute trip to the United States drags them closer to an unfolding plot in the heart of Washington D.C. A plot connected to everyone and everything the Petroviches have touched. A diabolical conspiracy none of them saw coming - and only one group can stop! 1. Language: English. Narrator: John David Farrell.

Fight them, Mr Brigance. To the bitter end. We must prevail. In the long-awaited successor to the novel that launched his phenomenal career, John Grisham brings us the powerful sequel to A Time to Kill. As filled with twists as it is with legal mastery, Sycamore Row proves beyond doubt that John Grisham is in a league of his own. Jake Brigance has never met Seth Hubbard, or even heard of him, until the old man´s suicide note names him attorney for his estate. The will is dynamite. Seth has left 90 per cent of his vast, secret fortune to his housemaid. The vultures are circling even before the body is cold: the only subject more incendiary than money in Ford County is race, and this case has both. As the relatives contest the will, and unscrupulous lawyers hasten to benefit, Jake searches for answers to the many questions left by Seth Hubbard´s death. What made him write that last-minute will leaving everything to a poor black woman named Lettie Lang? Why did he choose to kill himself on the desolate piece of land known as Sycamore Row? And what was it that Seth and his brother witnessed as children that, in his words, ´no human should ever see´? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Beck.
