Winter 2003: war is looming and New York is paralysed by the worst blizzard in years. Artie Cohen is called in to investigate a case: a pile of blood soaked children's clothes have been found on the beach in Brooklyn. Almost against his will, Artie finds himself drawn into a case that involves the death of a child and the unaccountable disappearance of another, all against the background of a city already stricken by fear. In his increasingly obsessive search for the missing child, Artie finds himself in the remote coastal suburbs of Brooklyn, among the Russian community he thought he had left behind him - and way out of his depth. Along the way he falls in love with one woman and is seduced by another, but little can calm his mind as his past comes back to haunt him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vincent Marzello.

Chris O'Grady writing as Gordon Deverowe. The murder of old Arthur Lockwood was handled so carefully that the police weren't sure it was a murder, but his granddaughter Leah Lockwood was suspicious from the start. She began digging. Slowly the Russian mob in Brooklyn began to become a presence trying to ease into the old man's Lockwood Petroleum empire. And they weren't the only ones. Legitimate oil companies were involved, overseas distributors, they began coming out of the woodworks. And then there was Weaver. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rich Miller.

The darkest secrets of a Russian oligarch - a legacy from Stalin. A hidden batch of the CIA’s Stinger missiles. And the insatiable Afghan thirst for revenge. Ex-CIA war crimes investigator Joe Johnson is sucked into an inquiry which delves into the deadly world of Soviet and US undercover operations in Afghanistan during the 1980s - and mysterious connections to current US and Russian politics. Johnson and his ex-MI6 colleague Jayne Robinson find themselves pursuing a Russian oligarch with strong links to Putin and a past he would rather keep hidden - and also an Afghan Mujahideen bent on the most bloodthirsty revenge. The investigation is thrown awry by Johnson’s crooked former CIA boss, now on the run, and by a miscalculation of the dangers lurking in the Hindu Kush mountains, ridden with heavily armed Taliban insurgents. The story reaches a raw climax in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Moscow, and Kabul, as Johnson battles to overcome the powerful forces lined up against him, including former KGB agents. Stalin’s Final Sting is a gripping thriller - the fourth in the Joe Johnson series - with some twists that the listener will never see coming. Meet Joe Johnson today, and see how he uncovers buried truths from the past. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Pirhalla.

In this third novel in Gabriel Cohen’s Edgar Award-nominated Jack Leightner crime series, the Brooklyn homicide detective investigates the serial killing of prostitutes in Crown Heights and the murder of a friend who ran afoul of Russian gangsters in Brighton Beach. Jack Leightner’s new partner is a rookie homicide detective, scared by death but ready to learn. His first case is a gruesome one: a strangled prostitute, hung from her neck in an imitation of suicide and left to fester for days in the summer heat. Nearly overcome, the rookie asks Leightner how he keeps himself from getting emotionally involved with the victims. If we got emotional or took it personally, says Leightner, "there’s no way we could do the job." But when an old Russian friend in Brighton Beach is murdered, Leightner takes it very personally. Organized crime is stifling this old-world enclave, and his friend made the mistake of getting in the way. Just as dangerous as these thugs is Leightner’s attraction to his friend’s widow, the beautiful Eugenia, whose temptations may make Jack break his cardinal rule about not getting personally involved. 1.

Nikolai 'Niki' Zorakoff has made a killing on the Soviet black market. He smuggles in luxury goods from the West - the blue jeans and perfumes that wealthy Muscovites simply can't do without - and sells them for small fortunes. But when the KGB takes an interest in Niki's operation, he knows he must run or die. So, with a forged passport and as much money as he can carry, Niki heads to the Russian haven of Odessa Beach. It isn't long before Niki makes contact with the mobsters of South Brooklyn, who loan him the capital to start a restaurant that becomes one of the area's hottest nightspots. But when the time comes to pay, Niki decides he would rather not settle up, starting a gang war that will pit two generations of mobsters against each other in a fight to the death. 1.

In Brooklyn, a female jogger is brutally raped; the assailants are convicted and later exonerated by the Kings County DA. Now the guilty are filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the city of New York, the police, and the two assistant DAs who tried the case. While the cops and the criminal justice system are under media assault and opportunist political demagoguery, Karp has suspicions that there is corruption within his own office. Against a backdrop of Russian mobsters and corrupt lawyers, Butch and Marlene are on a mission to restore the system's lost dignity and bring the rapists to justice. All the while terrorists are at it again, planning to blow the roof off Times Square on New Year's Eve. Alas, the Karp family finds itself in lethal jeopardy, and to survive, they must team up and fight their greatest battle yet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Sellars.

Born in Brooklyn, New York City, Ruth Joan Bader is the second child of Nathan and Celia Bader, Russian Jewish immigrants, who lived in the Flatbush community. The Bader's older child, Marylin, passed away at age six when Ruth was still young. At age 13, Ruth acted as the "camp rabbi" at a Jewish summertime program at Camp Che-Na-Wah in Minerva, New York. Celia had actually been an excellent trainee in her youth, finishing from high school at age 15, yet might not enhance her own education since her household picked to send her sibling to college instead of her. Celia desired to see her child get more of an education, which she believed would permit Bader to end up being a high school history instructor. Bader went to James Madison High School, whose law program later on devoted a courtroom in her honor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Michael Lewis.
