Tijuana: melting pot of Mexico, gateway to Baja California. Two million souls struggle for survival, each searching for a way to become...something, anything better. Fate brings a few strangers together one night in a crowded taxi rojo. When the red taxi crashes down a canyon, it creates a connection between the passengers that, like the international border within sight of the crash, draws a line between triumph and defeat, hopelessness and perseverance, life and death. Boyfriends Rigo and Cristian confront their demons when a supposedly innocuous tryst gets out of control. Pancha looks for love in a complex world of ambiguous gender and sexual identity. Toni´s biggest problem is self-acceptance in a culture that has ingrained in him the idea that real men are macho and self-sufficient. Julia´s faith is challenged, as she toils to make a living and support her disabled sister, while feeling paralyzed by her sense of responsibility and lingering guilt. Even in Tijuana, light can be found in the darkness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J.D. Huntington. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/064437/bk_acx0_064437_sample.mp3.

The author of Half-Resurrection Blues returns in a new Bone Street Rumba Novel - a knife-edge, noir-shaded urban fantasy of crime after death. The streets of New York are hungry tonight...Carlos Delacruz straddles the line between the living and the not-so alive. As an agent for the Council of the Dead, he eliminates New York´s ghostlier problems. This time it´s a string of gruesome paranormal accidents in Brooklyn´s Von King Park that has already taken the lives of several locals - and is bound to take more. The incidents in the park have put Kia on edge. When she first met Carlos, he was the weird guy who came to Baba Eddie´s botánica, where she worked. But the closer they´ve gotten, the more she´s seeing the world from Carlos´s point of view. In fact, she´s starting to see ghosts. And the situation is far more sinister than that - because whatever is bringing out the dead, it´s only just getting started. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel José Older.

R. S. Belcher, the acclaimed author of The Six-Gun Tarot and The Shotgun Arcana, launches a gritty new urban fantasy series about the mysterious society of truckers known only as The Brotherhood of the Wheel. In AD 1119, a group of nine crusaders became known as the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon - a militant monastic order charged with protecting pilgrims and caravans traveling on the roads to and from the Holy Land. In time, the Knights Templar would grow in power and, ultimately, be laid low. But a small offshoot of the Templars endure and have returned to the order´s original mission: to defend the roads of the world and guard those who travel on them. Theirs is a secret line of knights: truckers, bikers, taxi hacks, state troopers, bus drivers, RV gypsies - any of the folks who live and work on the asphalt arteries of America. They call themselves the Brotherhood of the Wheel. Jimmy Aussapile is one such knight. He´s driving a big rig down South when a promise to a ghostly hitchhiker sets him on a quest to find out the terrible truth behind a string of children gone missing all across the country. The road leads him to Lovina Hewitt, a skeptical Louisiana State Police investigator working the same case and, eventually, to a forgotten town that´s not on any map - and to the secret behind the eerie Black-Eyed Kids said to prowl the highways. 1.

The Case of John Hinckley (Borderline Personality Disorder) discusses the life and times of John Hinckley from his normal childhood to his attack on the President, Ronald Reagan. Hinckley would become a bit of a drifter moving from place to place and somewhere along the line would seem to lose touch with reality. His fascination with the movie Taxi Driver would cause a romantic inclination toward actress and star of the movie, Jodie Foster. Foster would respond harshly toward any advances Hinckley would make in her direction. In the end, it would be Hinckley´s infatuation for the actress as his defense for the attack on the President. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steven G Carley.
