Job shadowing is a process where you spend some time with a professional in your career field of interest, with the sole aim of being able to learn and explore career opportunities. How do you do this? How do you get job shadowing opportunities? How do you get the most from the experience? When you job shadow, you get the best chance to see the reality of being on that job. You get to ask questions, and observe the day-to-day activities of the people involved in that career. Job shadowing can be one of the most powerful and effective career exploration tools available. You would greatly benefit from a job shadow situation if you are a student or considering a career change. With higher education costs soaring, learning to do a succesful job shadow could save you literally thousands of dollars, a lot of time, and a possible mistake in a career choice. Don´t be de-railed by a career that is not right for you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John N. Gully. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/021588/bk_acx0_021588_sample.mp3.

The new Stanley Hastings novel featuring the unlikeliest private eye in New York City. Private eye Stanley Hastings doesn´t want for idiosyncrasies, as fans of this long-running ´´unconventional´´ and ´´very funny´´ (says the New York Times) mystery series know. For instance, he doesn´t carry a gun. So he seems a particularly improbable choice, among all of New York City´s private investigators, for the cold-eyed Martin Kessler. Not that Kessler requires firepower. He´s got a gun of his own - an automatic with a long, ugly silencer - although he´d like to retire it. A contract killer who wants out of the game, Kessler hires Stanley mostly to watch his back in the event that someone of similar professional skills is shadowing him. Someone is, in fact, only Stanley fails to spot him and dead bodies are soon piling messily up. The hapless Stanley thus begins an odyssey around Manhattan in his attempt to uncover just what did go down, and why, during his client´s last, decidedly dirty, job. 1. Language: English.

Twelve homicides, three police-involved shootings, and the furious hunt for an especially brutal killer - February 2013 was a good month for murder in suburban Washington, DC.

After a quiet couple of months, all hell breaks loose: Suddenly every detective in the squad is scrambling to solve one shooting and stabbing after another.

The town of Lunacy, Alaska, was Nate Burke´s last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he´d watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But just as he wonders whether this has been all a big mistake, an unexpected kiss on New Year´s Eve under the brilliant Northern Lights of the Alaskan sky lifts his spirits and convinces him to stay just a little longer. Meg Galloway, born and raised in Lunacy, is used to being alone. She was a young girl when her father disappeared, and she has learned to be independent, flying her small plane, living on the outskirts of town with just her huskies for company. After her New Year´s kiss with the chief of police, she allows herself to give in to passion - while remaining determined to keep things as simple as possible. But there´s something about Nate´s sad eyes that gets under her skin and warms her frozen heart. And now, things in Lunacy are heating up. Years ago, on one of the majestic mountains shadowing the town, a crime occurred that is unsolved to this day - and Nate suspects that a killer still walks the snowy streets. His investigation will unearth the secrets and suspicions that lurk beneath the placid surface, as well as bring out the big-city survival instincts that made him a cop in the first place.

Time is not on Faye Longchamp’s side. She and her husband Joe are working near the mouth of the Mississippi, researching archaeological sites soon to be swamped by oil. The Deepwater Horizon disaster has morphed her run-of-the-mill contract job into a task that might swamp her fledgling company. It isn’t helping that an injured babysitter has left Faye to work with a toddler underfoot. An adolescent girl is drawn to Faye, perhaps because she idolizes the confident archaeologist. Young Amande is bright and curious, but a poverty-stricken life on a houseboat with an eccentric grandmother doesn’t seem like a good way for Amande to get the education she deserves. Then when the girl’s grandmother and her no-account uncle are murdered, her prospects worsen. With only two known relatives, neither of whom is much more respectable than the dead uncle, Amande seems destined for neglect or worse. Soon, Faye and Joe find themselves among people fighting hard for Amande’s pathetic inheritance: a raggedy houseboat, a few shares of stock, and a hurricane-battered island that’s not even habitable. Pirate-era silver coins are found and disappear. Shadowing it all is the fact that the murderer is still on the loose. But why should Faye be surprised by such shady events, here in these watery lands settled by the greatest pirates of them all? And the oil slick looms, because this country is still being plundered, after all these years. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cassandra Campbell.
