As Flex, his niece Trina, Gem, Hemp, and Charlie brave the wild world teeming with the walking dead, they make up the rules as they go along. Flex Sheridan was an electrician before the world took a nasty turn; Gem, an artist. Hemp is a scientist who specializes in epidemics and also carries in his bag of tricks a mechanical engineering degree. Charlie is a metal and punk rocker in her mid-twenties, proficient enough to take out two zombies at once with her crossbow. Each one of them has their own story. This volume is Gem´s chronicle. They know they must stay safe, but they know that to simply hide away is to allow the creatures who crave human flesh to walk the world forever. Join them as they struggle to balance their natural tendencies toward self-preservation with their strong desire to rid the world of the zombie scourge. Our band of machine gun-toting nomads moves from place to place in fortified vehicles, keeping their eyes peeled for survivors, and zombie battles ensue at nearly every turn. But this is not a world where love dies...this is a moment in history when human connections and things of beauty are more important than ever; things to be embraced and cherished. So hop in the Crown Victoria with the ballistic steel body and the swiveling AK-47 on the top, and hang on to your seat as Gem powers the car through hordes of zombies and gets her precious Trina and Flex where they need to be. Learn what Hemp and Charlie discover in the lab - a huge clue to what caused the epidemic that has 90% of the world hunting the rest. But after you meet this group, you´ll begin to wonder: Who are the hunters, and who are the hunted? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric A. Shelman.

Dock Boss: Eddie McGrath and the West Side Waterfront is the fascinating account of one gangster´s ascension from altar boy to the leader of New York City´s violent Irish Mob. Eddie McGrath´s life and crimes are traced through the tail-end of Prohibition, the gang warfare of the 1930s that propelled him into the position of an organized crime boss, the sordid years of underworld control over the bustling waterfront, McGrath´s involvement in dozens of gangland murders, and finally the decline of the dock mobsters following a period of longshoremen rebellion in the 1950s. Like walking into the backroom of a smoky West Side tavern, the book also features all the other unsavory characters who operated on the waterfront, including McGrath´s brother-in-law, John ´´Cockeye´´ Dunn; the gang´s hitman of choice, Andrew ´´Squint´´ Sheridan; racketeers such as Mickey Bowers, Timothy O´Mara, Charlie Yanowsky, Joe Butler, and Albert Ackalitis; as well as a plethora of corrupt union officials, robbers, enforcers, shakedown artists, loan sharks, boss loaders, and bookies. This is the real-life story of the preeminent racketeer on Manhattan´s lucrative waterfront and the bloodshed that long haunted the ports of New York City. 1. Language: English.
