Inside The Worm: Robert Swindells
Room 13 And Inside The Worm: Robert Swindells
Dan Deadman is having one of those days. After saving the grim and gritty alien city of Down Here from something big, mean, and mind-bendingly horrible, Dan is looking forward to unwinding in the closest available bar. Annoyingly, the universe has other ideas. Instead, Dan finds himself investigating a cheating husband, two horrible murders, and the potential enslavement of everyone in the galaxy. With his caseload stretching his woefully limited detective skills, his car in pieces, and the whole ´´being dead´´ thing not doing him any favors, Dan has no choice but to ask his friends for help. And that´s when his problems really start. Featuring motivational gangsters, predatory worms, and a whole classroom full of defecating infants, Dead Inside is the second book in the Dan Deadman Space Detective series, and the follow-up to the best-selling Dial D for Deadman. 1.

While skydiving with an adventure group, FBI Agent Jamie Dallas overhears plans to carry out criminal acts against a politician. Believing the group may have already committed murder, the bureau sends Dallas to infiltrate the activists. But to worm her way inside the tight-knit clan, Dallas makes dangerous compromises and starts to sympathize with their cause. She ends up so deep undercover, she can´t make contact with the bureau. Across town a Washington, DC, detective investigates a death that looks like a simple hooker homicide. But as Detective Larson peels away the layers, she uncovers something far more sinister, something deeply connected to a high-profile judge´s death. Meanwhile, working against her own conscience, Agent Dallas struggles to gather evidence and push the activist group toward the major takedown the FBI has orchestrated. But inside the group´s safe house, another imposter lurks, and when the real motive surfaces, Dallas is caught in a cunning trap that will make her both a victim and a killer. Can the law enforcement players come together in time to help Dallas, or is she on her own - to live or die - depending on only her wits and timing? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Denice Stradling.

A false world is like an apple full of worms. It appears juicy and attractive on the outside, but is in fact disgusting on the inside. This book discusses a number of false worlds masquerading as truth but which are in fact false to their core. Included are the false worlds of politics, international relations, law, sexual confusion (premarital sex, abortion, and gayness), entertainment, and pride. 1. Language: English.

People have searched for the fountain of youth everywhere from Bimini to St. Augustine. But for a steadfast group of scientists, the secret to a long life lies elsewhere: In the lowly lab worm. By suppressing the function of just a few key genes, these scientists were able to lengthen worms’ lifespans up to tenfold, while also controlling the onset of many of the physical problems that beset old age. As the global population ages, the potential impact of this discovery on society is vast - as is the potential for profit. With The Longevity Seekers, science writer Ted Anton takes listeners inside this tale that began with worms and branched out to snare innovative minds from California to Crete, investments from big biotech, and endorsements from TV personalities like Oprah and Dr. Oz. Some of the research was remarkable, such as the discovery of an enzyme in humans that stops cells from aging. And some, like an oft-cited study touting the compound resveratrol, found in red wine - proved highly controversial, igniting a science war over truth, credit, and potential profit. As the pace of discovery accelerated, so too did powerful personal rivalries and public fascination, driven by the hope that a longer, healthier life was right around the corner. Anton has spent years interviewing and working with the scientists at the frontier of longevity science, and this audiobook offers a behind-the-scenes look at the state-of-the-art research and the impact it might have on global public health, society, and even our friends and family. With spectacular science and an unforgettable cast of characters, The Longevity Seekers has all the elements of a great story and sheds light on discoveries that could fundamentally reshape human life. 1.

Can we ever get inside the mind of an animal? Can we really know how a chimp or a parrot thinks and experiences the world?
