A dying artist creates a series of ten paintings - The Death Pictures - which contain a mysterious riddle, leading the way to a unique and highly valuable prize. Thousands attempt to solve it. But before the answer can be revealed, the painter is murdered. A serial rapist is working through a series of attacks. He isn´t shy to make clear his hatred of women, and taunting of the police. He leaves his calling card, a witch´s hat at the houses he breaks into, each numbered from a pack of six. The detectives face baffling questions. Why kill the artist when he would die naturally in just a few weeks time? What to make of the attempted break in at his house just before his death? Could it be connected with the rapes, all of which have been carried out in the area around his home? The media interest in the cases is intense, and Detective Chief Inspector Adam Breen again turns to his friend, TV Crime reporter Dan Groves to help him handle it. Dan does - at the price of some great scoops, and an involvement in the case that eventually leads him to effectively talk to the rapist, using the stories he broadcasts to lure him into a trap, and finally, discover the extraordinary solution to the riddle. 1.

The explosive new thriller from New York Times best-selling author and master of the medical thriller, Robin Cook. Lynn Peirce, a fourth-year medical student at South Carolina´s Mason-Dixon University, thinks she has her life figured out. But when her otherwise healthy boyfriend, Carl, enters the hospital for routine surgery, her neatly ordered life is thrown into total chaos. Carl fails to return to consciousness after the procedure, and an MRI confirms brain death. Devastated by Carl´s condition, Lynn searches for answers. Convinced there´s more to the story than what the authorities are willing to reveal, Lynn uses all her resources at Mason-Dixon - including her initially reluctant lab partner, Michael Pender - to hunt down evidence of medical error or malpractice. What she uncovers, however, is far more disturbing. Hospitals associated with Middleton Healthcare, including the Mason-Dixon Medical Center, have unnervingly high rates of unexplained anesthetic complications and patients contracting serious and terminal illness in the wake of routine hospital admissions. When Lynn and Michael begin to receive death threats, they know they´re into something bigger than either of them anticipated. They soon enter a desperate race against time for answers before shadowy forces behind Middleton Healthcare and their partner, Sidereal Pharmaceuticals, can put a stop to their efforts once and for all. 1.

These Animal Games were inspired by the Animal Cards that were originally created for the Animal Insights book. This book features a unique way to get insights about yourself and to learn about what you can gain from the qualities of a particular animal. The idea is to think about your associations with that animal and how that can apply them to yourself. These same cards can also be used to play a series of fun games. Since there are 144 cards, which can easily be combined in various ways to play a variety of classic and new games, such as Animal Poker, Animal Gin, Animal Auction, Animal Concentration, Animal Treasure Hunt, Animal Tales, and more. You can also play team games by dividing up the deck, which is easily divided by two, three, four, six, eight, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, and 72. Or you pull out certain types of cards, such as all the insects, reptiles, birds, mammals, marine animals, or farm animals. The games featured include: Animal Olympics Animal Poker Animal Concentration Animal Gin Animal Treasure Hunt Animal Tales Animal Fortune Teller Animal Charades Save the Animals What’s My Animal? Plus, you can create your own animal games. While the animals are listed in alphabetical order, you want to cut out all the Animal Cards, which are printed four to a page, to create a card deck with the picture and name of the animal on one side. Or ideally print out the Animal Cards on card stock and cut those up. You can use the whole deck or a select number of Animal Cards to play the different games. The cards to use are included with the rules for each game. Once you have cut out all the cards and selected the cards to be used in each game, you can shuffle the cards like a deck of cards or spread them out face down and mix them up on a table top. If the cards are a deck, a dealer can deal them out or you ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rick Struve. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/118151/bk_acx0_118151_sample.mp3.
