1965: The Most Revolutionary Year in Music

1965: The Most Revolutionary Year in Music

Author: Andrew Grant Jackson Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/03/2018

During twelve unforgettable months in the middle of the turbulent Sixties, America saw the rise of innovative new sounds that would change popular music as we knew it. In 1965: The Most Revolutionary Year in Music, music historian Andrew Grant Jackson (Still the Greatest: The Essential Songs of The Beatles' Solo Careers) chronicles a groundbreaking year of creativity fueled by rivalries between musicians and continents, sweeping social changes, and technological breakthroughs. Jackson weaves fascinating and often surprising stories into a panoramic narrative of the seismic cultural shifts wrought by the Civil Rights Movement, feminism, Youthquake, the miniskirt, the Pill, psychedelics, and Vietnam. 1965 is a fascinating account of a defining year that produced some of the greatest songs, albums, and artists of all time.

77 Shadow Street

77 Shadow Street

Author: Dean Koontz Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/12/2011

The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill at the highest point of an old heartland city, a Gilded Age palace built in the late 1800s as a tycoon's dream home. Almost from the beginning, its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder, and whispers of things far worse. But since its rechristening in the 1970s as a luxury apartment building, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents - a successful songwriter and her young son, a disgraced ex-senator, a widowed attorney, and a driven money manager among them - the Pendleton's magnificent quarters are a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten. But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. With each passing hour, a terrifying certainty grows: Whatever drove the Pendleton's past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. Soon, all those within its boundaries will be engulfed by a deadly tide from which few have escaped. Dean Koontz transcends all expectations as he takes readers on a gripping journey to a place where nightmare visions become real-and where a group of singular individuals hold the key to humanity's destiny. Welcome to 77 Shadow Street.

A Billy Boyle World War II Mystery #6: A Mortal Terror

A Billy Boyle World War II Mystery #6: A Mortal Terror

Author: James R. Benn Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/09/2011

Two officers from the American troops stationed in Caserta, Italy, not far from Naples, have been found murdered. The MOs are completely different, and it seems like the officers had no connection to each other, but one frightening fact links the murders: each body was discovered with a single playing card: the Lieutenant, the ten of hearts; the Captain, the jack of hearts. The message seems to be clear: If the murderer isn't apprehended, the higher ranks will be next. Billy is sent to Italy for the investigation, which grows increasingly sinister. But he has other things on his mind, too. His girlfriend, Diana, is on a very dangerous spy mission, and Billy doesn't know when--or if--he'll see her again. To make matters worse, Billy's just learned that his baby brother, Danny, is being sent over to Europe as an infantry replacement, an incredibly dangerous assignment. And all around him, he sees GIs suffering from combat fatigue preparing for another battle. As the invasion at Anzio begins, Billy needs to keep a cool head amidst fear and terror as the killer calculates his next moves.

A Blind Eye

Author: George Fong Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/09/2021

Sometimes the best person to talk to isn't the one that's living. It has been over a year since his wife had passed. FBI Special Agent Jack Paris lived a complex life with one foot in the world of violence and another in a place of normalcy. Now she's gone and Paris seeks a way to continue his connection with her, even without her physical presence. It's a fierce winter in Yosemite and it's not uncommon people end up dead. Hikers fall, cars take a wrong turn. But this was no accident. The body of a young girl is found in a small patch of frozen grass. Cut and filthy, it's obvious she was left for law enforcement to find. A small note left under her tells it all: Catch Me. Paris fights his own demons in his relentless drive to uncover the secrets within this tight-lipped community. He needs to focus his resources on stopping a killer and at the same time, find the missing tourists. But time is the critical variable. Whether by accident or malicious intent, Agent Paris knows, if the winter cold doesn't kill them, humans will.

A Blind Goddess

A Blind Goddess

Author: James R. Benn Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/01/2014

March, 1944. US Army Lieutenant Billy Boyle, back in England after a dangerous mission in Italy, is due for a little R&R—and a promotion. But the now-Captain Boyle doesn’t get to kick back and enjoy his leisure time because two upsetting cases fall into his lap at once. The first is a personal request from an estranged friend: Sergeant Eugene “Tree” Jackson, who grew up with Billy in Boston, is part of the 617th Tank Destroyers, the battalion poised to make history by being the US Army’s first combatant all–African American company. But making history isn’t easy, and the 617th faces racism at every turn. One of Tree’s men, a gunner named Angry Smith, has been arrested for a crime he almost certainly didn’t commit and faces the gallows if the real killer isn’t found. Tree knows US top brass won’t care about justice in this instance and asks Billy if he’ll look into it. But Billy can’t use any of his leave to investigate because British intelligence agent Major Cosgrove puts him on a bizarre and delicate case. A British accountant has been murdered in an English village, and he may or may not have had some connection with the US Army—Billy doesn’t know because Cosgrove won’t tell him. Billy is supposed to go to the village and investigate the murder, but everything seems fishy—he’s not allowed to interrogate certain key witnesses, and his friends and helpers keep being whisked away. Billy wonders whether Cosgrove even wants him to solve the murder. The good news is the mysterious murder gives Billy an excuse to spend time in and around the village where Tree and his unit are stationed. If he’s lucky, maybe he can get to the bottom of both mysteries and save more than one innocent life. “One of Mr. Benn’s best books of the series...A pleasure to read.”—Seattle Post-Intellegencer

Meanwhile, a beautiful but deadly Russian incarcerated assassin, Nadya Malovo, works with Karp from behind bars to prevent a violent attack on New York City.

A Dirty Year: Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in Gilded Age New York

A Dirty Year: Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in Gilded Age New York

Author: Bill Greer Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/07/2020

As 1872 opened, the New York Times headlined four stories that symptomized the decay in public morals that the editors so frequently decried: financier Jim Fisk was gunned down in a love triangle; suffragist and free-love advocate Victoria Woodhull was running for president; antivice activist Anthony Comstock battled smut dealers poisoning children’s minds; and abortionists were thriving. Throughout the year these stories intertwined in unimaginable ways, pulling in others, both famous and infamous—suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Brooklyn’s beloved preacher Henry Ward Beecher; the nation’s richest tycoon, Cornelius Vanderbilt; and William Howe, preeminent counsel to the criminal element. From rigged elections, everyday shootings, and attacks on the press to sexual impropriety, reproductive rights, and the chasm between rich and poor, the issues of the day still resonate. Political parties split over a bitterly contested election; suffragist battled suffragist over bettering women’s place in society; and pious saints fought soulless sinners, until at year-end this jumble of conflicts exploded in the greatest sensation of the nineteenth century.

A Free Man

A Free Man

Author: Michel Basilieres Narrator: Andy Paris, Peter Berkrot Release Date: 01/05/2015

An unusual and remarkable dystopian novel A Free Man is a satirical tall tale presented as the drug and alcohol fuelled conversation of two old friends getting reacquainted over one night. It's also a boy-meets-girl story of the worst kind and a time travel story about a future where the world is ruled by robots and humans are vermin. When timelines cross, the world as we know it bends . . . Skid Roe is completely self-absorbed and delusional. His struggle to exercise free will is constantly hampered by the physical manifestation of his inner demons and by the norms and rules of contemporary life. He's both aided and hindered by Lem, a robot from the future whose good intentions leave Skid on the run from a shadowy state security agency. A surreal, beautiful, and powerful literary mash-up, BasiliEres' long-awaited sophomore effort is inventive and darkly funny.
