The fiery crash of a private jet leaves a mystery in its wreckage. Alone in the devastation is a man, unhurt, who has no memory of the crash, himself, or his past. It is up to FBI Agent Gail Crane, Santa Maria Police Detective Darcie Devonshire, and ex-CIA Operative Morgan Garrett to solve the puzzle. Not an easy task, because for each question answered, two surface to take its place. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Romick.

There's a saying that people don't leave companies, they leave managers. Management is a key part of any organization, yet the discipline is often self-taught and unstructured. Getting to the good solutions of complex management challenges can make the difference between fulfillment and frustration for teams, and, ultimately, the success or failure of companies. Will Larson's An Elegant Puzzle orients around the particular challenges of engineering management - from sizing teams to technical debt to succession planning - and provides a path to the good solutions. Drawing from his experience at Digg, Uber, and Stripe, Will Larson has developed a thoughtful approach to engineering management that leaders of all levels at companies of all sizes can apply. An Elegant Puzzle balances structured principles and human-centric thinking to help any leader create more effective and rewarding organizations for engineers to thrive in.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

No death could have been more welcome than Evan Morgan's, or more fitting for the Welcome Home celebrations in the village of Llanddewi. For Morgan had spent the war making money and enemies down in the Vale of Glamorgan with about equal facility. In fact, on the night, it seemed as if a whole posse of murderers had beaten a path to the door of the Manor House. It is left to the ingenuity of Sir Richard Cherrington, an eminent but slightly eccentric archaeologist with a penchant for amateur detection on a visit from Cambridge, to solve this intricate puzzle of motives and alibis. 1.

Impossible Stories I is a collection of several of the author's finest works, including Time Gifts, Impossible Encounters, Seven Touches of Music, The Library (winner of the World Fantasy Award), and Steps through the Mist. The perfect introduction to the incredible world of Zoran Zivkovic. Impossible Stories might be approached as if one were inspecting a handsome piece of furniture, a cabinet in which each of any number of regularly sized and shaped drawers is built precisely to contain and to somehow exemplify its own metaphysical freight or uncanny puzzle, and it is in the rhythm and variety of the whole, too, that the nature of Zivkovic's craft can be apprehended and enjoyed. -Tony White, Wasafiri &#8230;even though they own and use computers, Zivkovic's characters seem decidedly nineteenth century. They are as intelligent and as neurotic as Poe's personae, and admirers of that master of the outre-or of Borges, Gogol, Capek, and Lem-will be enthralled by them. -Ray Olson, Booklist &#8230;well worth reading for the ingenuity of Zivkovic's stories. He is extraordinarily clever and has a particular talent for devising awkward moral dilemmas for his characters. His writing is also &#8230; quite unlike that of anyone else. -Cheryl Morgan, Emerald City
