A powerful follow-up to award-winning debut Bull Mountain. Brian Panowich burst onto the crime fiction scene in 2015, winning awards and accolades for his smoldering debut, Bull Mountain. Now, with Like Lions, he cements his place as one of the outstanding new voices in crime fiction. Clayton Burroughs is a small-town Georgia sheriff, a new father, and, improbably, the heir apparent of Bull Mountain’s most notorious criminal family. As he tries to juggle fatherhood, his job, and his recovery from being shot in the confrontation that killed his two criminally inclined brothers last year, he’s doing all he can just to survive. Yet after years of carefully toeing the line between his life in law enforcement and his family, he finally has to make a choice. When a rival organization makes a first foray into Burroughs´ territory, leaving a trail of bodies and a whiff of fear in its wake, Clayton is pulled back into the life he so desperately wants to leave behind. Revenge is a powerful force, and the vacuum left by his brothers’ deaths has left them all vulnerable. With his wife and child in danger and the way of life in Bull Mountain under siege for everyone, Clayton will need to find a way to bury the bloody legacy of his past once and for all. 1.

One problem: Leo hasn´t actually met the client when he sets out to investigate what seems like a hot tip on a burgeoning scandal in the Oakland Police Department. When he presents evidence of deep-set corruption in the Department to the District Attorney´s office, he quickly learns that all is not as it seems, beginning with Leo´s client and the alluring woman who hired him. Leo´s ´´client´´, as he learns to his humiliation, is actually represented by Nikki Matson, one of Oakland´s most notorious gangland lawyers.

How does life work? How does nature produce the right numbers of zebras and lions on the African savanna, or fish in the ocean? How do our bodies produce the right numbers of cells in our organs and bloodstream? In The Serengeti Rules, award-winning biologist and author Sean Carroll tells the stories of the pioneering scientists who sought the answers to such simple yet profoundly important questions, and shows how their discoveries matter for our health and the health of the planet we depend upon. One of the most important revelations about the natural world is that everything is regulated - there are rules that regulate the amount of every molecule in our bodies and rules that govern the numbers of every animal and plant in the wild. And the most surprising revelation about the rules that regulate life at such different scales is that they are remarkably similar - there is a common underlying logic of life. Carroll recounts how our deep knowledge of the rules and logic of the human body has spurred the advent of revolutionary life-saving medicines, and makes the compelling case that it is now time to use the Serengeti Rules to heal our ailing planet.

The first few bodies didn´t attract that much attention. A young girl camping oceanside with her parents is ravaged by an invisible killer. A ghost ship with a crew of dead men is found adrift off the coast of British Columbia. Two divers fishing for abalone die gruesome deaths, setting their boat aflame in an attempt to escape...something. But when a noted marine biologist drops dead in his bathroom shortly after documenting a group of disease-ravaged sea lions, oceanographer Brock Garner is called in to piece it all together before the body count mounts higher. As the unknown killer moves stealthily toward Seattle, Washington, Garner and a hastily assembled team begin their hunt. Searching the ocean, they find that the decaying bodies of new victims rising to the surface begin to shed light on a deadly organism. But someone on Brock´s team would prefer that the full answer remain undiscovered, even if thousands, maybe millions, more must die. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jameson Parker.
