Zeitoun by Dave Eggers ( Recording )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, Abdulrahman Zeitoun-- a prosperous Syrian-American and father of four-- chose to stay through the storm to protect his house and contracting business. In the eerie days after the storm, he traveled the flooded streets in a secondhand canoe, passing on supplies and rescuing those he could. A week later, on September 6, 2005, Zeitoun abruptly disappeared. His wife Kathy, a boisterous Southerner who converted to Islam, is left to make sense of the surreal atmosphere (in New Orleans and the United States generally) in which what happened to Abdulrahman Zeitoun was possible
The Echelon vendetta by David Stone ( Recording )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When his "company" friend is gruesomely slain in a sleepy Tuscan village and the dead man's family later butchered in their London home, CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton takes action. Soon he is on the trail of an elusive fiend whose flair for ornamental blade-work suggests a link to American Indian mysticism. As the body count rises, the targets include active and inactive CIA agents and independent contractors--all with some connection to Echelon, an enigmatic Langley enterprise. Revenge may be the motive--but for what?
