Here is a time when the old west became new - the 1930s-50s - as Louis L´Amour witnessed it first-hand in Southern California before and after World War II. Many people think the age of gunmen, scheming land barons, murderous bad guys, and the determined men who stood up against them, went out with the end of the Old West around the 1890s. But, in L’Amour’s own time in the New West, there were far more bad men toting guns and making grabs for far more wealth and valuable land than in the fabled days of the Old West. And it took far more courage and determination to oppose them in the days of the Tommy Gun and .45 automatic than in those of the six-gun and pump-action rifle. When Louis ´L´Amour finally moved to Los Angeles permanently in the late 1940s, the ´´Battle of Sunset Strip,´´ an all-out mob war between rival Mafia families for control of the lucrative west Los Angeles/Hollywood gambling and prostitution trade, was at its height. More than 30 gangland killings took place in a seven-year period (including that of the legendary Bugsy Siegel), and more than 100 were said to have been slain during its quarter century span. This war had brought the Old West roaring back into the New - and L’Amour recognized it. He began to write hardboiled crime stories filled with the same kind of stalwart, straight-shooting men, strong, resolute women, and vicious, unprincipled badmen that peopled his westerns. You will find many of the best of these true-to-life tales in this exciting collection of short novels and stories (including ´´Street of Corpses,” ´´Anything For a Pal,” and ´´Collect from a Corpse”), along with others equally tough (´´Death, Westbound” and ´´It´s Your Move”) based on L’Amour´s own experiences traveling the New West before the war. These are among his least reprinted stories, and we think they will prove a real treat for the author’s multitude of listeners. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randal Schaffer.

Ninety years ago the Toomey brothers, along with twenty-five other men and four thousand head of cattle, vanished en route to Arizona. When writer and historian Dan Sheridan is invited to the missing brothers’ ranch by its current owner, he jumps at the chance. The visit fits right in with his plan to solve the century-old mystery - but it turns out that his host isn’t a fan of books, writers, or people who don’t mind their own business. Soon Dan is living the dangers of the Old West firsthand - tracked through the savage wilderness by vicious killers straight out of the most violent pages of his stories. However, his enemies have made one serious mistake: Sheridan is no pencil-pushing greenhorn, and killing him won’t be as easy as they think. Our foremost storyteller of the authentic West, L’Amour has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and women who settled the American frontier. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Culp.

There is something for everyone in this collection of Isabelle Aboulker’s most beautiful melodies: the passionate vocalises of Je t’aime, composed for the fiery Patricia Petitbon, sit alongside limpid fables by La Fontaine (The Crow and the Fox, The Lion in Old Age and more), while the unnerving eeriness of the merchant of souls in Au Marché de Saint-Paul contrasts with the light humour of the Savoir-vivre cycle, and the melancholy accents of Lettre d’amour make way for the irresistible charm of L’Inconstante. Isabelle’s prosodic clarity and voluptuous focus on the evocative power of words speak of a deep attachment to the legacy of French song composers. In turn impetuous or melancholy, this thrilling music knows how to aim straight for the heart.

In one of his most riveting novels of adventure, America´s favorite storyteller follows the treacherous trail of an outlaw determined to make his big strike and then disappear into a new life. But can a wrong turn be made right and can the heart of a hardened man still be moved by a second chance at happiness? Here´s a hard-hitting, uniquely American tale of raw courage, haunting regret, and hope against all odds as only Louis L´Amour can tell it. Considine bristled at the word ´´thief´´, but that´s what he was. He´d been out of money, and one mistake just led to another. Now he had four years of crime behind him and little to show for it, except the dubious honor of being a hunted man. But just north of the border there was one last chance it could all pay off. Obaro was a tough town full of tough men, boasting a bank no one had ever tapped. But it wasn´t just the bank that rankled Considine, it was the man who ran Obaro. Sheriff Pete Runyon had been a friend until he had married the girl that Considine loved. He was also the only man who had ever beaten Considine in a fist fight. Outwitting Runyon now would be sweet revenge on many levels. But Considine didn´t count on meeting Lennie, a beautiful young woman, and her trail-savvy but reckless father, a former outlaw trying to get far enough away from his past to give his daughter a future. The two were headed straight for an Apache war party and certain death. Now Considine and his gang can either ride like hell for the border just ahead of an angry posse, or join the old man and the girl in a desperate last stand atop High Lonesome against revenge-hungry warriors. The choice is simple: risk the hangman´s noose or an Apache bullet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Strathairn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/000610/bk_rand_000610_sample.mp3.
