The black box by Michael Connelly( Sound Recording )
25 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,992 libraries worldwide
In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box," the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together

Four years ago Lew Fonesca's wife was struck and killed in a hit-and-run within sight of their apartment. He fled Chicago, driving mindlessly until his car gave up the ghost in Sarasota, FL. Working from a cheap office behind the Dairy Queen on Highway 301, he makes a threadbare living as a process server and savors his clinical depression like a fine wine. Lew's therapist, who alternately acts as his conscience and his sparring partner, tells him that unless he's willing to leave the planet, it's about time that he goes back to Chicago and closes the door to the past so that he can finally get on with the rest of his life. Lew hates to admit it, but he's beginning to see her point. So Lew returns to his home town, to friends and family--and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. He's resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife. In doing so, he'll uncover both sweet and painful memories of his past. He'll also confront a murderer who'll not hesitate to kill again to make sure hidden secrets stay buried
The Lincoln-Douglas debates by Abraham Lincoln( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 338 libraries worldwide
"The Lincoln-Douglas Debates, seven legendary meetings between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas during their 1858 senatorial campaign in Illinois, made history, and changed its course as well. ... The debates were the culmination of a political rivalry that had its origin twenty-five years before, when Lincoln and Douglas were aspiring politicians in the Illinois legislature. The main theme was slavery and its expansion into the western territories. Douglas argued for the concept of popular sovereignty, with the people of each territory deciding the slavery question for themselves. But in Lincoln's view, this approach would nationalize and perpetuate slavery. Though Douglas won re-election to the Senate, Lincoln's gift for oratory and his anti-slavery stance in the debates made him a nationally known figure, and led to his election to the presidency in 1860"--Container
Never enough by Joe McGinniss( Sound Recording )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
Nancy Kissel had it all: glamour, wealth, and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe." That marriage--to Merrill Lynch investment banker Robert Kissel--ended abruptly one night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong prosecutors, who charged Nancy with murder, said she wanted to inherit Rob's millions and start a new life with a blue-collar lover. She said she'd killed while fighting for her life against an abusive, cocaine-addicted husband. Less than a year later, Rob's brother Andrew, a Connecticut real estate tycoon facing prison for fraud and embezzlement, was found stabbed in the back in the basement of his multimillion-dollar mansion. This is the harrowing true story of these two brothers, who grew up wanting to own the world but instead wound up murdered half a world apart; and of a modern American woman for whom having it all might not have been enough.--From publisher description
