Attorney Rep Pennyworth faces the client from hell: Charlotte Buchanan, author of And Done to Others’ Harm, a mystery of no particular merit. Charlotte contends that her 1997 novel is the basis for the 1999 film Contemplation of Death—and she wants to sue. Rep would blow her off, but Charlotte is the daughter of the CEO of the firm’s major corporate client, Tavistock Limited. Charlotte is resolute in demanding recognition, so Rep digs in, aided by his literature-addicted wife Melissa, and files suit. By return mail comes a grisly death threat. Research shows the film’s director was Aaron Eastman, a Hollywood legend whose Red Guard should have been a box office and critical smash but oddly fell short. Eastman claims the Oscar balloting was sabotaged. Now he’s on the comeback trail and anxious not to derail. He and Rep talk and, bit by bit, the outline of a bizarre scheme to destroy the credibility of Eastman and Red Guard emerges. Hoosiers Rep and Melissa aren’t prepared for the larger licenses granted to political powerhouses, but they’re quick on the uptake and soon armed. Mike Bowen, a trial lawyer practicing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the author of numerous mystery novels. He also wrote the entry on the American legal system for the Oxford Companion to Crime and Mystery Writing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Malcolm Hillgartner.

ZONE 23 ... a darkly comic dystopian satire about being human, all-too-human, featuring two of the most endearing Anti-Social anti-heroes that ever rebelled against the forces of Normality. Set in the post-catastrophic future, in a peaceful, prosperous, corporate-controlled society where all dissent and non-conformity has been pathologized, and the human race is being genetically corrected in order to establish everlasting peace on Earth, Zone 23 is a hilarious, heartbreaking affirmation of the anarchic human spirit, and a defiant departure from the norms of both the genre sci-fi and literary novel. C. J. Hopkins is the author of several critically acclaimed and award-winning stage plays, including Horse Country, screwmachine/eyecandy, and The Extremists. His political satire and commentary has appeared on NPR Berlin, in CounterPunch, ColdType, and other journals, and has been translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. His plays are published by Bloomsbury Publishing (Methuen) and Broadway Play Publishing, Inc., and have been produced in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and The Netherlands. Critical acclaim for Hopkins' previous work ... "A brilliant (and hilarious) critique of the emptiness of American life and the meaninglessness of the popular culture that attempts to fill the void" -- Toronto Globe & Mail "A blistering revelation ... Hopkins' body of work owes a huge debt to the absurdists and so manages to blast beyond the merely political or allegorical to the existential" -- Time Out New York "Sharp, brilliant, intense, fast-moving, made for the moment we live in" -- The Scotsman, Edinburgh "A gripping satire, which spills into sinister weirdness." -- Die Tageszeitung, Berlin

It's time to look at a typical day at work in corporate America and how bad habits, bad procedures, and bad communication creep into the workplace, undermining productivity. Business experts agree that procedural inefficiency is an all-too-familiar theme in today's workplace, and that eliminating it is one of business managers' most important responsibilities. The Corporate Drain provides business leaders with tools to recognize problems and tips for raising efficiency and improving performance, such as: Unclogging the flood of information (e-mail, paper reports, meetings, and conference calls); Maximizing the potential of each employee using cost-effective incentives; How training can never be underestimated or over-applied. The globalization of the business world challenges American companies to observe and understand how cultural diversity affects their operations. Author Yoel Yohan, raised in India and educated at a British military school, accredits his successful career at global giant, United Parcel Service, in part to his own cultural diversity. In The Corporate Drain, Yohan provides powerful examples and tools for profitable growth in today's international marketplace.
