Left penniless and alone by the untimely death of her father, Sarah Lowell works as a day nurse at King’s College Hospital. Her daily walk to and from work crosses the Rookery of St. Giles, a dangerous place made all the more frightening by the fact someone lurks in the shadows, watching Sarah, stalking her like a beast of prey. Enigmatic surgeon Killian Thayne offers Sarah his protection, but his sensual, commanding presence presents another kind of danger. Killian wears his professionalism like a mask, concealing the darkness buried in his soul. He is drawn to Sarah, lured by her intellect, her dry wit, and yes, her loneliness, for it calls to his own. Then a patient is found dead, drained of blood. Another soon follows, and another, and rumors paint Killian as the monster who killed them.

[Terrence Holt] is Melville + Poe + Borges but with a heart far more capacious. (Junot Díaz) Out of the crucible of medical training, award-winning writer Terrence Holt shapes this stunning account of residency, the years-long ordeal in which doctors are made. "Amid all the mess and squalor of the hospital, with its blind random unraveling of lives", Internal Medicine finds the compassion from which doctors discover the strength to care. Holt's debut collection of short stories, In the Valley of the Kings, was praised by the New York Times Book Review as one of "those works of genius" that "will endure for as long as our hurt kind remains to require their truth". Now he returns with Internal Medicine - a work based on his own experiences as a physician, offering an insider's access to the long night of the hospital, where the intricacies of medical technology confront the mysteries of the human spirit. "A Sign of Weakness" takes us through a grueling nightlong vigil at the bedside of a dying woman. In her "small whimpering noises, rhythmic, paced almost to the beating of my heart", a doctor confronts his own helplessness, clinging "like a child to the thought of morning". In the unforgettable "Giving Bad News," we struggle with a man who maddeningly, terrifyingly refuses to remember his terminal diagnosis, forcing us to tell him, again and again, what we never should have wanted to tell him at all. At the bedside of a hospice patient dying in a house full of cursing parrots in "The Surgical Mask", we reach the limits of what we are able to face in human suffering, in our own horror at what happens to our bodies as they die. In the psychiatric hospital of "Iron Maiden", a routine chest X-ray opens a window onto a nightmare vision of medieval torture and a recognition of how our mortality drives all of us to madness. In these four stories and five others, Internal Medici 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory DeCandia. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/020693/bk_adbl_020693_sample.mp3.

Roll the windows down, wipe the blood off your cheek, and turn the music up. Sheet Music to My Acoustic Nightmare by Stephanie M. Wytovich is a collection spattered with dirt and blood, sage and corpses. The poems inside are confessionals and dirges - their stories the careful banter of ghosts and sinners over tequila at the bar.This book holds the lyrics to the beautiful grotesque that Wytovich is known for, but here she crafts with a raw honesty that we haven’t seen from her before. This new direction takes listeners to hospital rooms and death beds, shows the mask that was skinned off her face time and time again. There’s a brutality to her lines that cuts with the same knife she fantasized about it. Her blood and tears are mixed in with stanzas as she talks about suicide and abuse, heartbreak, and falling in love. Created during a time when the road was her home, these poems were sung under the stars and screamed in the woods and carved into trees. They are broken bottles and cigarette butts, stale coffee and smeared lipstick, each its own warning, a tale of caution. Listen to them carefully. They very well might save your life. 1.

In 1979 I was a Presbyterian minister, a hospital chaplain, and a pacifist. In 1980, I left the church and joined the Air Force. The day I showed up at the recruiter's office, I was twenty-eight, under-exercised, a wimp, and extraordinarily ignorant of the military. I intended it to be a stopgap measure while I figured out what to do next, but I never got bored. When Cheryl Dietrich joined the US Air Force, she began a transformation from overweight introvert and military neophyte into one of the key personnel redesigning the structure of the Air Force within the Pentagon. In this stirring and revelatory memoir, Cheryl - one of only a hundred female officers of colonel rank or higher - explains what it takes to stay the course, overcome male domination issues, break the glass ceiling more than once, and deal with the political issues facing the Pentagon. In Formation also covers subjects specific to military life: what it is like to be a squadron commander; to lead a NATO division, mobility exercises, and wartime exercises in gas mask and chem gear; and to deploy with NATO to war-torn Croatia; the book also describes a fatal air show disaster. It covers the basic experiences of relationships in the military. From the mundane to the heroic, this is a story about finding within oneself the kernels of courage that define the warrior - female or male. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donna Postel.
