    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched firsthand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living - or at least the undead - hell of that dreadful time.

    Berlin, March, 1943. A month has passed since the stunning defeat at Stalingrad. Though Hitler insists Germany is winning the war, commanders on the ground know better. Morale is low, discipline at risk. Now word has reached Berlin of a Red massacre of Polish officers in the Katyn Forest near Smolensk. If true, the message it would send to the troops is clear: Fight on or risk certain death.

    Joyce says: "Greatest Series Ever."
    "For the love of god change the narrator!"

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Hecht?

    How long can a man escape judgment? A dark and atmospheric thriller from the award-winning author of A Simple Act of Violence. Vincent Madigan is charming, resourceful, and knows how to look after himself. The only problem is that he's up to his neck in debt to Sandia - the drug king of East Harlem. One heist will free Madigan from Sandia's control and give him the chance he needs to get his life back on track. But can he evade justice for his crimes? Or will his own conscience be his final undoing?
