Was a rare amethyst mine illegally seized from the Japanese ancestors of a well-known Atlanta family, just after World War II? Four months ago, anthropologist professor Travis Monahan got shot while on an investigation of the mysterious floating city at Baikal. Suffering from PTSD, he's been holed up in their Atlanta office with his Jack Russell terrier and his brooding thoughts. One of the partners, Savannah Summers, convinces him to take this case. Their new client, Miya Richards, hires them to search for the purported mine and its missing property deed, which she claims were seized from her grandmother's family. While uncovering clues in the old quarter of Tochigi, Japan, the intrepid duo runs into a man who reveals that his uncle once tried to investigate and was never seen again. He does, however, tip them off to the Himiko Corporation. Travis and Savannah go to Himiko, pretending to be research geologists. The head honcho immediately clams up and on their way out, a Yakuza biker gang pursues them. As action and clues lead the adventurers into the mountains, relentless descendants of the evil, rich Kinagawas and their ilk thwart them at every turn. Their lives are at stake and Travis realizes this case is not as straightforward as it first seemed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kerrie Seymour.

Chicago-style politics is front and center. When a sitting president has his roots in this sullied political heritage, it makes for news and leads to speculation. Not Black and White is a fictional account of many of the events that led to the meteoric rise of a local charismatic street politician to become America's first African American president and the downfall and imprisonment of two consecutive governors of the state of Illinois, along with several of their most trusted advisors and cohorts. This story puts the listener inside the campaign offices and smoke-filled back rooms where political deals are made. It depicts the rise and fall of a Syrian immigrant who made millions by pretending he had billions while charming his way into the highest halls of wealth and power. The perspective of a local attorney/businessman who found himself in a front-row seat to politics as usual in the City That Works is reflected throughout the story. The cast of characters may appear familiar to anyone who's ever read a headline or watched cable news and talk shows across the country. In 1994, a freak traffic accident occurred, killing a family of six young children when their van burst into flames after being struck by a semi-trailer truck driven by a man unqualified to drive such a vehicle. The truck driver, a victim himself, had bribed an employee of the Illinois secretary of state's office in order to procure his commercial driver's license. The tragic accident and resulting exposé of corruption and scandal that followed changed forever the course of American history. Inspired by true events, Not Black and White leaves it to the listener to interpret fact from fiction. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Verner.
