Mary B. Addison killed a baby. Allegedly. She didn't say much in that first interview with detectives, and the media filled in the only blanks that mattered: a white baby had died while under the care of a churchgoing black woman and her nine-year-old daughter. The public convicted Mary, and the jury made it official. But did she do it?

He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that.

This has to be the most emotionally involved I've ever been in a book. I have to say this because ok is by far my favorite. There are no words to describe it. I was angry, confused, hurt, resentful, I grieved, and in the end I was happy and hopefully for Russ. No book has ever done that to me and so I have to say this is very well written and was a total surprise to me.

The narrator did an outstanding job. He really made you feel like you're in the story and living each moment. Just WOW!!

Leah did a wonderful job! I learned a lot from this book about Scientology. The whole time listening to this book I thought this is crazy who signs up for guys stuff and who pays this much for faith? I can't imagine someone telling me how to think and to put all of my life in to one organization I admire her for taking a stand and wish her the absolute best.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

In her long career as America's most beloved suspense writer, Mary Higgins Clark's The Lost Years is her most astonishing and dramatic work to date. At its center is a discovery that, if authenticated, may be the most revered document in human history - the holiest of the holy - and certainly the most coveted and valuable object in the world.

It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.
