Since then, there's been barely a whisper of a rumor of those men, the treasure, and what it actually means. A decade later, Judd Ryder returns to the DC area from a covert operation in Iraq to see his doppelganger across the street, a man who is wearing his clothes, living in his house, and pretending to be him. Just as he's about to confront him, Ryder watches as his double is killed in an all-too-convenient car accident. Not only was someone pretending to be him, someone else wanted to kill him. As he soon learns, the key to all of this is a legendary Cold War freelance assassin known as the Carnivore. Ryder and his colleague Eva Blake were the last two people known to have had contact with him. Now someone is trying to use them to lure the Carnivore out of retirement or hiding, wherever he might be. At stake appears to be a treasure of unimaginable value. And the players are the most dangerous freelancers on the world stage. Now Ryder and Blake must use every resource at their disposal, to outmaneuver the forces allied against them and stay alive, and, if possible, uncover the truth that lurks in the shadows of this deadly game of assassins.

Ty Cobb: a terrible beauty Cover
Charles Leerhsen
Malcolm Hillgartner, narrator
A fascinating and authoritative biography Ty Cobb--baseball royalty, maybe even the greatest player who ever lived. His lifetime batting average is still the highest of all time, and when he retired in 1928, he held more than ninety records. But Cobb was also one of the game's most controversial characters. He got in a lot of fights, on and off the field, and was often accused of being overly aggressive. He had his enemies, but he was also widely admired. After his death in 1961, however, his reputation morphed into that of a monster--a virulent racist who also hated children and women, and was in turn hated by his peers. Who is the real Ty Cobb? Leerhsen pushed aside the myths and re-traced Cobb's journey, from the shy son of a professor and state senator who was progressive on race for his time, to America's first true sports celebrity. In the process, he tells the life of a man we thought we knew but really didn't.
