The Sugar House : [electronic resource] : Tess Monaghan series, book 5. by Lippman, Laura.; Rosenblat Barbara.;
Narrator: Barbara Rosenblat.When Tess Monaghan agrees to talk to Ruthie Dembrow, she senses she’ll regret it. If there’s anything Tess has learned in her work both as a newspaper reporter and then as a PI, it’s to trust your instincts. Still, she can’t deny she’s intrigued when Ruthie asks her to investigate the fatal stabbing of her brother, Henry, while he was locked away for murdering a teenage runaway over a bottle of glue. Henry’s death at the hands of fellow convicts doesn’t surprise Tess, but what does is that he was convicted for murdering a “Jane Doe”—something that rarely happens in the judicial system.No ID was found on the victim’s body, and her fingerprints didn’t match up to any in the national database. How could anyone escape all the identity nets of the modern world? Ruthie is convinced if she learns the identity of her brother’s victim, maybe she can also find out why he was killed.Tess’s search takes her on a harrowing journey from Baltimore’s exclusive Inner Harbor to the seedy neighborhood of Locust Point. But it’s the shocking discovery of the runaway’s true identity that turns Tess’s hunt deadly. Suddenly, her supposedly solved murder case keeps turning up newer, fresher corpses and scarier versions of the Sugar House—places that look so sweet and safe, but only from the outside. -- provided by Amazon.com.Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 273931 KB).

The innocent [electronic resource] : by Baldacci, David.; Mclarty, Ron.;
Narrator: Ron McLarty.America has enemies—ruthless people that the police, the FBI, and even the military can't stop. That's when the US government calls on Will Robie, a stone-cold hit man who never questions orders and always nails his target.But Will Robie may have just made the first—and last—mistake of his career ...It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, DC. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: he refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a fourteen-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway—her parents were murdered, and her own life is in danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can't walk away. He needs to help her.Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he's convinced she's at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may explain her parents' deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of power. Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save the girl's life—and perhaps his own.Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 344428 KB).
