The Johnstown Flood , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 543min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

At the end of the last century, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was a booming coal-and-steel town filled with hardworking families striving for a piece of the nation's burgeoning industrial prosperity. In the mountains above Johnstown, an old earth dam had been hastily rebuilt to create a lake for an exclusive summer resort patronized by the tycoons of that same industrial prosperity, among them Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, and Andrew Mellon. Despite repeated warnings of possible danger, nothing was done about the dam. Then came May 31, 1889, when the dam burst, sending a wall of water thundering down the mountain, smashing through Johnstown, and killing more than 2,000 people. It was a tragedy that became a national scandal. Graced by David McCullough's remarkable gift for writing richly textured, sympathetic social history, The Johnstown Flood is an absorbing portrait of life in 19th-century America, of overweening confidence, of energy, and of tragedy. This is a powerful historical lesson for our century and all times: the danger of assuming that because people are in positions of responsibility they are behaving responsibly. 1. Language: English.

Warnings Unheeded: Twin Tragedies at Fairchild ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mass murder and military aviation disaster. One community's experience with two fatal tragedies that occurred suddenly...but not without warning. On 20 June 1994, a gunman opened fire on the patrons and staff of the Fairchild Air Force Base hospital. Four days later, a B-52 bomber with four souls onboard went down in a fiery crash. Hundreds of ordinary men and women experienced the tragedies...countless others had struggled to prevent them. Everyone who met the would-be gunman thought he was odd, but the disturbed airman struck fear in those who knew him. Doctors had him committed to a military psychiatric ward, only to watch him slip through the cracks of a broken system. They warned their staff, "This is the kind of patient who...one day...he's going to come back and kill you." A veteran B-52 pilot wowed the crowd at Fairchild’s annual air shows. But the men who had to fly with him shared tales of the reckless aviator routinely stressing the airliner-sized bomber and her crew to their breaking point. When their leadership failed to act, concerned aircrews said, "We predicted the worst air-show disaster in history when we found out that he was gonna fly." Warnings Unheeded is compelling narrative nonfiction from former military policeman and criminal investigator, Andy Brown. Drawing from extensive research, and interviews with the people who witnessed the tragedies unfold, Brown captures their story with cinematic clarity. As the man who ended the killing spree, Brown reveals how he had prepared for the deadly gunfight and offers a candid insight into the hidden cost of becoming a "hero".  Warnings Unheeded is a story of courage and resilience, a true survival story and a lesson from history.  Listen to this fascinating true story of mental illness, mass murder, and aviation disaster.  "A highly readable book...from a unique source. Recommended for a wide audience 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael F. Cochrane. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/103274/bk_acx0_103274_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation: ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jack's a retired ex-cop from New York, seeking the simple life in Cherringham. Sarah's a Web designer who's moved back to the village find herself. But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries. This compilation contains episodes 13 - 15: A Lesson in Murder: When Jack and Sarah are called in to investigate mysterious pranks at Cherringham Girls School, it seems at first that it might be the work of a few mean pupils with a grudge. But things quickly turn serious when a popular teacher meets a sudden, violent death. The Secret of Combe Castle: When the penniless FitzHenrys find themselves victims of a threatening campaign to oust them from their ancestral home, Jack and Sarah are called in to track down the culprit. Soon they discover that truth is often stranger than fiction, and in Combe Castle things do indeed go bump in the night... A Fatal Fall: Dylan McCabe - a labourer on a rushed Cherringham building project - has been complaining about the site's lack of safety. When he's discovered dead after a fall, it seems that Dylan's own warnings were all too true. Jack and Sarah get involved, and suddenly what looks like an accident, becomes a case of cold-blooded murder. Set in the sleepy English village of Cherringham, the detective series brings together an unlikely sleuthing duo: English web designer Sarah and American ex-cop Jack. Thrilling and deadly - but with a spot of tea - it's like Rosamunde Pilcher meets Inspector Barnaby. Each of the self-contained episodes is a quick listen for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa. For fans of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple series", Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who series", Caroline Graham's "Midsomer Murders", and the American TV series "Murder She Wrote", starring Angela Lansbury.

The Secrets of Marsh House

Matthew Stevens, and his long time friend, Harvey Shepherd, are both pupils at Higham House Priory, the local primary school in a pleasant village called Heathfield, in East Sussex. The boys are firm friends - though of quite different character. Matthew is headstrong - often his undoing - while Harvey is of a more cautious, and practical nature. This never deters Matthew for long, however, when he has some daring plan in mind: with an insatiable curiosity, he is as a rule unstoppable, and usually manages to overcome his friend's doubts and fears. One Saturday afternoon, Matthew persuades a reluctant Harvey to agree to cycle to an empty, old mansion on a large estate - said to be haunted according to word passed around their school playground, for what he describes as an 'adventure' - but even the ever-confident Matthew gets more than he bargains for. The boys quickly find that the once stately old house has some unsettling ways to discourage intruders. Hair-raising incidents, and their encounters with near disaster, together make Matt's eagerly planned excursion an eventful and memorable one. Matthew, as usual, from the first takes little heed of warnings but, however, soon, some strange force is urging him on into a far-reaching, unexpected chain of events, and even his confidence is for once badly shaken. Though the outcome of their unauthorised 'investigation' proves worthy of his plan, Matt, in particular, is about to learn a sharp lesson on how his impulsive actions can deeply affect others.
