They warned Elena Petrova, a journalist, to drop her story. She didn´t. They raped her. She didn´t give up. They killed her and buried her body where no man could find it. Unfortunately for them, one man did. Special Forces operative Zeb Carter is back. This time it´s personal. Zeb Carter discovers the woman´s body in a remote part of the country, while on vacation. The body cannot be identified. No one comes forward to claim it. No missing women match it. He is prepared to leave the investigation to the authorities when he is asked to leave town. Zeb Carter is a deep black agent with a U.S. government agency that officially doesn´t exist. He hunts terrorists, international criminal gangs, drugs and people traffickers. He shuts down threats to U.S. national security. In his business, back off is an order he issues. He decides to get involved and enters a battlefield where his enemies are ruthless, well-trained, several steps ahead of him, and anonymous. They want him stopped. They want him dead. He doesn´t know why. He has come up against powerful and shadowy enemies before. He has faced down lethal assassins and terrorists. He has worked in hostile territory. He has never come up against anyone like The Man, that too, in his own country. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Carlson.

For over a quarter of a century, award-winning journalist Henry Bradsher reported stories from around the world. In this lively and engaging account, Bradsher recounts episodes from a distinguished career that took him to the Himalayas, the jungles of Bhutan, Kremlin caviar receptions, China´s Forbidden City, and the battlefields of Vietnam. Throughout, Bradsher emphasizes the unpredictability of a correspondent´s life and the strains, perils, and privileges of standing witness to momentous world events. In Moscow he covered the downfall of Nikita Khrushchev, and he later suffered the KGB bombing of his car in response to his tenacious reporting. His incisive coverage from Hong Kong led Chinese officials to label Bradsher as ´´the most despicable´´ journalist. But after a power shift, they welcomed him as the first American journalist allowed to work in China in over a year. Bradsher predicted and reported Bangladesh´s independence struggle, and he worked in the Middle East, covering Egyptian-Israeli peace arrangements. Access to the events that shaped the Cold War also led to Bradsher´s meeting many world leaders, including Nehru, Khrushchev, Leonid Brezhnev, Zhou Enlai, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Anwar Sadat, and Menachem Begin. Although Bradsher´s reporting riled officials in Moscow, Beijing, and even the United States - prompting Henry Kissinger´s attempts to thwart the publication of his reports - history has proven its accuracy. Bradsher´s relentlessness in his own work accompanied a profound respect for fellow journalists worldwide who endanger themselves to keep the public informed. The book is published by Louisiana State University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Chester. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/073135/bk_acx0_073135_sample.mp3.
