Killer Kissing Bugs: Kevin Blake

All Bob Dillon ever wanted was a truck with a big fiberglass bug on the roof. All he had to do was survive half a dozen assassination attempts, pull a $10 million con on a Bolivian drug lord, and then fall off the face of the earth with his family and his new best friend, Klaus. Six years later, in The Exterminators, they surface in Oregon where they continue Bob’s work creating an all-natural means of pest control. But now, instead of crossbreeding different strains of assassin bugs, they’re using advanced gene sequencers to consolidate the perfect insect-killing traits into one deadly bug. There’s only one problem: with all of this seriously expensive DNA tampering, they’re running low on funds. The venture-capital outfit that wants to invest turns out to be a front for DARPA, the Department of Defense agency charged with research and development of exotic weapons. It seems the US government wants to enlist Bob, Klaus, and the bugs in the war on terror. Oh, and did we mention unlimited funding? With an offer too good to refuse, they move to Los Angeles and get to work. Things go swimmingly until that Bolivian drug lord discovers he was conned out of his $10 million. Vowing revenge, he offers $20 million to whoever kills Bob and Klaus. Some of the world’s best assassins descend on Hollywood, and before you can say ´´It’s an honor just to be nominated,” the weirdness level reaches apocalyptic heights. It’s a battle pitting the Far Right against the Far Left with Bob stuck in the middle and subjected to some serious post-9/11 thinking. Bill Fitzhugh is the award-winning author of eight satiric crime novels. His debut novel, Pest Control, was named one of Amazon’s Top 50 Mysteries in 1997. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Weiner.

It was a Tuesday night in November, 1962. Rain fell slow and steady in Manhattan, slanting hard on near-deserted sidewalks and streets pocked by the occasional twin circles of approaching headlamps. Taxis spawned out from Times Square like predatory bugs in search of new feeding grounds, and here and there a truck rolled heavily past sleeping skyscrapers where spotty clusters of bright windows indicated janitors were toiling late on nocturnal rounds. Nature had a conspiracy against Kyle Walker. Tuesday was the night for his extension course at the university, and it had rained every Tuesday since the course began. Kyle Walker was 30, a civil engineer on the city payroll, and a man of ambition far above his present status. Tall, angular, a bit shaggy in his waterproof and fedora, he hunched awkwardly over the steering wheel of the eight-year-old sedan that was taking him home. 1. Language: English.

Book 1 Jolene Jackson would rather be anywhere than Kickapoo, Texas. Sweltering in the bug-infested flatlands and dodging nosy locals is never fun, but with the mayor murdered and her 72-year-old mother locked up in the county jail because of it, Jolene´s dragged back to her old hometown, like it or not. Lucille isn´t shedding any tears over her boyfriend´s untimely demise, and her antics put her at the top of the suspect list. But when a not-so-ex Mrs. Mayor shows up to claim her due, it´s pretty clear that Mother Dearest isn´t the only one who´s been done dirty. With suspects coming out of the woodwork, a pile of scandals brewing at town hall, federal agents swarming a makeshift artillery shed, and a mouthy church lady with a righteous ax to grind, Kickapoo is a bubbling hotbed of trouble. Flames are still burning high and fast with Jolene´s old high school sweetheart, the sheriff. But what´s really getting hot and personal is the gunfire, and it´s tracking her like catfish to stink bait. Bullets are flying, chicken´s frying, and there´s a nasty killer on the loose in the mesquites with a stolen shotgun who´s Hot Enough to Kill. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathi Colas.

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the worst case of its type since the virus was discovered in the 1970s. What makes this Ebola outbreak of greater concern is not only that it is the strain that has the higher mortality rates but that it has crossed borders and appeared in regions previously unaffected by Ebola. The Ebola outbreak has the potential to spread on a global scale, particularly due to the long incubation period and the symptoms taking time to develop. Ebola symptoms are very similar to other infectious diseases and as such they can be difficult to spot. If the Ebola outbreak goes global those that are prepared will have the best chance of survival, in short this means the prepper community. WHO have already declared that the Ebola outbreak is spreading quicker than the steps being taken to prevent it. Many peppers are worried about the potential for pandemics of infectious diseases; it appears that Ebola may have the potential to become a pandemic. This audiobook explains the Ebola virus and the current situation with the outbreak in West Africa. It discusses Ebola symptoms and how the disease develops in humans. Like many infectious diseases Ebola can only be transferred from human to human in certain circumstances, we look at those circumstances and how we can best protect ourselves from the Ebola virus. The book offers a look at prepping ideas that can be used if the Ebola outbreak hits our shores. In addition to stockpiling essential supplies the book highlights when it might be prudent to bug out and gives details about the best items to pack in a bug out bag. The bug out bag is probably the first thing that anyone wanting to be prepared should produce. In addition to a response to the Ebola outbreak, these prepper ideas can be applied to any ´´Doomsday situation´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason P. Hilton.
