The Dude ‘Du Jour’ of Somalia

by Eli Shaber

 

First came the coffee. Then, the handshake. We had an agreement.

 

In a matter of days I was transported from upper Manhattan to a place with no name, situated at the very edge of the world. Somalia, a place of seemingly endless death, tribal warfare and thousand-year-old vendettas.

 

Utterly flummoxed and breathtakingly out of my element, I felt like a complete, confused, quixotic impostor. Mine is the story of an American surgeon stunningly unprepared for the events in which he was about to engage.

 

In this audio recreation of his book, Dr. Shaber narrates his tale of an American surgeon who volunteered for a mercy mission in Somalia. His voice conveys the passion, disappointment, horror, and, believe it or not, humor of what seemed a never-ending nightmare. Gripping and intimate, it is the perfect companion to the book.

Swann’s Last Song  by Charles Salzberg

Nominated for a Shamus Award for Best First PI Novel, 2009

Skip tracer Henry Swann cares little about anything but money, so when a beautiful Upper East Side woman shows up in his office and hires him to find her missing husband, Harry Janus, he smiles and takes the case. But when this seemingly simple missing-person case turns into homicide, Swann finds himself trapped in a complex web of connections and multiple identities that takes him out of New York City and across two continents. As Swann struggles to uncover the truth about Harry Janus and find his killer, he stumbles across drug smuggling, stolen antiquities, and lies, as well as deception that tests his limits as an investigator and as a man.
