Billionaire genius Genoa Greeves never got over the shocking death of her favorite teacher, Bennett ´´Dr. Ben´´ Alston Little, murdered execution-style and stuffed into the trunk of his Mercedes-Benz. No arrests were ever made, no killer charged for the brutal crime. Fifteen years later, the high-tech CEO reads about another execution-style murder; this time the victim is a Hollywood music producer named Primo Ekerling. There is no obvious connection, but the case is eerily similar to Little´s, and Genoa feels the time is right to close Dr. Ben´s case once and for all - offering the L.A.P.D. a substantial financial ´´incentive´´ if justice is finally served for Little. Lieutenant Peter Decker resents having to commit valuable manpower to a 15-year-old open case simply because a rich woman says ´´Jump!´´ Still, the recent murder of Primo Ekerling does bear a disturbing resemblance to Little´s case, even though two thug suspects are currently behind bars for the Ekerling murder. Decker can´t help but wonder about a connection. His first phone calls are to the two primary investigators in the Little case, retired detectives Calvin Vitton and Arnie Lamar. Lamar is cooperative, but Vitton is not only reluctant to talk, he winds up dead of a suspicious suicide 12 hours later. Plunging into this long-buried murder, Decker discovers that even though the two slayings are separated by a decade and a half, there is still plenty of greed, lust, and evil to connect the dots. Decker´s team of top investigators not only includes his favorite homicide detectives, Scott Oliver and Marge Dunn, but also his newly minted Hollywood detective daughter, Cindy Kutiel, whose help proves to be invaluable. His wife, Rina Lazarus, continues to be his backbone of support, offering a cool, rational outlook despite her growing concern for her husband´s welfare and safety. Rina´s worries and fears begin to build at a fevered pitch as past and present collide with a vengea... 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Guidall.

Who hasn´t experienced a pang of lust or longing at a photo of a male model? Whether a hundred times life size on a billboard or romping through the pages of a glossy magazine in his Calvins, Tommys, or Ralphs, the male model is the gold standard for masculine beauty. The characters in these stories run the gamut, from the billboard-gracing Aiden in Cynthia Hamilton´s ´´Big Picture´´, to life models in drawing classes, to runway models, to ordinary guys immortalized in a catalog shoot in T. Hitman´s ´´When Gary Met Larry´´. They hook up with artists, photographers, roommates, and lovers, in locations from New York to Miami to a beach in Australia, and many places in between. One thing all the male models here have in common is sex appeal and a yen for man-on-man action. These aren´t the kind of guys who say, ´´look but don´t touch´´ - they want to be touched, and in all the right places! The authors here, some of the best writing in gay erotica today, have taken hold of the idea of the male model and run with it. Here´s hoping you enjoy reading these as much as Neil Plakcy enjoyed working with the authors and assembling this collection. Teen twinks, fresh-faced 20-somethings, and the ravishing runway rogues in Model Men make for a tribute to the glory of gorgeous gay men. These erotic stories explore the undeniable attraction to classic good looks, charisma, and glamour. Neil Plakcy has gathered sensational stories of sizzling porn bodies, sexy boys next door, tantalizing tricks, and sublime Mr. Right Nows. Intertwining favorite fantasies and gay lust, this collection is guaranteed to sing a siren song to those embodiments of perfection who walk among us. More then just pretty faces and heavenly bodies, the men in this volume give as good as they get. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Luke Avery.

The Singer quickly became a favorite of evangelists, pastors, artists, students, teachers, and readers of all sorts when it was originally published in 1975. Retelling the story of Christ through an allegorical and poetic narrative of a Singer whose Song could not be silenced, Miller´s work reinvigorated Christian literature and offered believers and seekers the world over a deeply personal encounter with the gospel.The Song is a poetic narrative in the tradition of C.S. Lewis´s Narnia Chronicles and J.R.R. Tolkien´s Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Song is Calvin Miller´s sequel to his earlier, very popular book, The Singer. Miller tells the story of Anthem and Everyman who leave the Great Walled City and travel to Urbis, the city of the Poet King, where followers of the Singer are martyred for their faith. As The Singer parallels the story of the Gospels, so The Song shows certain parallels to the Book of Acts. The Finale is Calvin Miller´s completion of his trilogy including The Singer and The Song. In this final volume, Miller tells the story of the Singer´s final battle with World Hater and envisions in dynamic prosepoetry the winding up of history on Terra One and the creation of Terra Two. As The Singer parallels the story of the Gospels and The Song parallels the book of Acts, so The Finale is an artistic retelling of the book of Revelation. 1. Language: English.

(2013/Norton) 17 tracks - amazing and rare multi label 1950s Doo Wop collection. Vocal group jumps and ballads from the vaults of Norton Records in a package inspired by the legendary Relic Records! - A Miriam Linna concept and a Billy Miller endeavor- This album and its companion second volume continue the land-mark GOLDEN GROUPS vinyl LP series spearheaded by Relic Records in 1973. These pioneering releases chronicled legendary R&B labels such as Parrot, Apollo, Lu Pine, Herald, Specialty and many other re-vered independent companies with photos, detailed notes and rare and unreleased songs. When Norton Records started in 1986, it was Relic´s Donn Fileti who hooked us up with our first artist Flasil Adkins Donn and his co-hort Ed-die Gries were constant sources of inspiration as we learned the ropes and they patiently (at least Donn was patient!) answered our questions as we first launched our label. Now, after nearly thirty years of excavating old masters, Norton has brought to light - aside from the clang and clutter of our loud sound heroes - a fair number of vocal group offerings. With the blessing of Donn and Eddie, we have continued their groundbreaking series with two new volumes, rounding up many of our own finest chant teams. We now present, for the first time ever, THE GOLDEN GROUPS OF NORTON RECORDS. In late 1962, the Delcos (named after the popular battery brand) from South Bend, Indiana, recorded Arabia/These Three Little Words for manager Juanita Flenson´s Ebony label. Within months they recut both sides for Showcase Records Legendary Pittsburgh DJ Porky Chedwick drove Arabia to the Number One chart position on WAMO, and iconic DJ Mad Mike also made it a staple at his dances. Norton presented this great hoof shaker in our MAD MIKE MONSTERS series. Also on these sets were the Ban-Lons from Houston with I Like It, the better of their two rare singles on Fidelity and Mad Mike favorites the Saucers out of Dallas with Cha Walley Routa, the infectious B-side of Why Do I Dream. The Dreamtones from Springfield, Massachusetts formed with a merging of members from the Centurys and the Mint Juleps. They had a great lead vocalist in Major Branch, and Sidney Poitier´s cousin Val was also a member. After their debut Love In The Afternoon on Klik in 1957, the Dreamtones issued a spectacular two-seder in Praying For A Miracle/ Jelly Bean on Express. Their final release as the Dreamtones was A Lover´s Answer on Astra in 1959, though they can also be heard provid-ing jungle hoots behind Joe Therrien on his very rare Sentinel release, Siam. The Dreamtones, Dappers, Supremes and Five Gents tracks on our GOLDEN GROUPS collections were previously issued on the Norton/ Massabesic set THE RHYTHM TEENS. Upstate New York´s Mohawk Valley boasted a very vibrant vocal group scene in the late fifties and early sixties with locally pressed re-cords by the Teenage Moonlighters, Bebo Singleton and the Notes, the Supremes, the Rhythm Cadets, the El Daros and the Royal Satins com-manding high prices amongst collectors. Utica´s Del-Vues (featuring one Brian Wilson on lead) 1961 offering My Confession/New Year´s Eve on U-Town paired two incredibly crude chants, and stands as one of the all-time rarest records of the region. This was originally planned as a Norton single release with the King Crooners´ Lonely Nights on the flip. Jazz pioneer Sun Ra was involved with the rhythm and blues scene as early as 1946, having backed Wynonie Harris on piano in Alabama. When he relocated to Chicago a few years later, Sun Ra began working with many of the city´s musical stars like the Dozier Boys, Andrew Tibbs, and Red Saunders. He recorded numerous vocal groups, both acapella and with backing by his Arkestra. The groups usually worked within a standard R&B framework, yet they also contributed to Sun Ra´s more experimental recordings. His stable included the Nu Sounds, the Quali-ties, the Metros and the Crystals, but he mostly worked with the Cos-mic Rays. Their two singles Daddy Gonna Tell You No Lie/Dreaming and Somebody s In Love/Bye Bye were recorded in 1955 but not issued for another five years, and even then, in extremely miniscule quantities on Sun Ra´s own Saturn label Lead singer Calvin Barron would later join the... - Billy Miller
