The violin conspiracy : [electronic resource] : A novel. by Slocumb, Brendan.; Jackson, JD.;
Narrator: JD Jackson.Growing up Black in rural North Carolina, Ray McMillian’s life is already mapped out. But Ray has a gift and a dream—he’s determined to become a world-class professional violinist, and nothing will stand in his way. Not his mother, who wants him to stop making such a racket; not the fact that he can’t afford a violin suitable to his talents; not even the racism inherent in the world of classical music. When he discovers that his beat-up, family fiddle is actually a priceless Stradivarius, all his dreams suddenly seem within reach, and together, Ray and his violin take the world by storm. But on the eve of the renowned and cutthroat Tchaikovsky Competition—the Olympics of classical music—the violin is stolen, a ransom note for five million dollars left in its place. Without it, Ray feels like he's lost a piece of himself. As the competition approaches, Ray must not only reclaim his precious violin, but prove to himself—and the world—that no matter the outcome, there has always been a truly great musician within him. -- provided by Amazon.com.Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 339699 KB).

The Romanov conspiracy : a thriller / by Meade, Glenn,1957-;
"Dr. Laura Pavlov, an American forensic archaeologist, is about to unravel a mystery that promises to shed light on one of the 20th century's greatest enigmas. A member of an international team digging on the outskirts of the present-day Russian city of Ekaterinburg, where the Romanov royal family was executed in July 1918, Pavlov discovers a body perfectly preserved in the permafrost of a disused mine shaft. The remains offer dramatic new clues to the disappearance of the Romanovs, and in particular their famous daughter, Princess Anastasia, whose murder has always been in question. Pavlov's discovery sets her on an unlikely journey to Ireland, where a carefully hidden account of a years-old covert mission is about to change the accepted course of world history and hurl her back into the past - into a maelstrom of deceit, secrets, and lies. Drawn from historical fact, The Romanov Conspiracy is a high-tension story of love and friendship tested by war, and a desperate battle between revenge and redemption, set against one of the most bloody and brutal revolutions in world history."--Publisher.

The Lusitania conspiracy : a novel / by Walters, Ronald J.;
"May 7, 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Lusitania, the event that catalyzed the United States involvement in World War I. Though the ship's sinking has guaranteed it a place in our history textbooks, the conspiracy behind it remains shrouded in mystery. Did the British Navy have advance knowledge of the attack? Was the attack preventable? Was the ship deliberately put at risk? While the answers to these questions may be lost forever in time, there is no shortage of theories as to what really led to the German attack on the Greyhound of the Seas. Bringing to life such influential historical characters as Nikola Tesla, Mark Twain, and Winston Churchill, as well as a host of fascinating characters created by the author, this gripping novel delves deeply into one of the greatest unsolved conspiracies in history and offers a unique look at what secrets might still be lurking in the ship's dark past. The Lusitania Conspiracy follows Tesla, perhaps the most brilliant scientist who has ever lived, as he endeavors to make the world a better place through his groundbreaking work with radar and tonal oscillation. But the Allied forces have other plans for Tesla's inventions namely, a super weapon that would bring Germany to its knees and ensure the Allies victory in the so-called war to end all wars. As imaginative as he was scientific, Tesla is joined in his never-ending quest to remain a force for good by his reverent assistant who shares his boss's quick wit and penchant for adventure. Tesla's unparalleled intellect also allows him the ability to consort with his deceased best friend, Mark Twain. Along the way, Twain advises Tesla from beyond the grave, often providing the insight and courage that Tesla needs in order to persevere. Once aboard the Lusitania, Tesla and Li find themselves tangled in a web of intrigue, where nothing is as it seems and no one is to be trusted"--Dust jacket flap.

The Axmann conspiracy : the Nazi plan for a Fourth Reich and how the U.S. Army defeated it / by Selby, Scott Andrew.;

Evading capture, and with access to remnants of the regime's wealth, Axmann had enough followers to reestablish the Nazi party in the very heart of Allied-occupied Germany--and position himself to become dictator of the Fourth Reich. U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps Officer Jack Hunter was the perfect undercover operative. Fluent in German, he posed as a black marketeer to root out Nazi sympathizers and saboteurs after the war, and along with other CIC agents uncovered the extent of Axmann's conspiracy. This is the previously untold true story of the Nazi threat that continued in the wake of World War II and the espionage that defeated it"--From publisher description.

Holocaust deniers and conspiracy theorists / by Heing, Bridey,editor.;
Includes bibliographical references and index."Conspiracy theories have existed for centuries to rationalize major events and crises, but while they were once relegated to the fringes of discourse, in recent decades, they have increasingly become part of public debate. While many conspiracy theories are innocuous, others-like Holocaust denial-are considered dangerous because of their intention to legitimize racist or otherwise hateful ideologies. This resource examines key debates and topics related to conspiracy theories, including balancing free speech and public safety, the development of conspiracy theorizing over the past century, the role the internet has played, and whether some conspiracy theories can actually benefit society"--
