Dying is what changed Mary O´Reilly´s life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary´s trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost´s word just doesn´t hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, don´t think she´s nuts. Twenty-four years ago, a young woman drowned in the swimming pool of a newly elected state senator. It was ruled an accident. But now, as the senator prepares to move on to higher positions, the ghost of the woman is appearing to the Senator´s wife. Mary is hired to discover the truth behind the death. She unearths a connection between the murder and the disappearance of five little girls whose cases, 24 years later, are still all unsolved. As she digs further, she becomes the next target for the serial killers´ quest to tie up all his loose ends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Spencer.

In this book, Katrina Hazzard-Donald explores African Americans´ experience and practice of the herbal, healing folk belief tradition known as Hoodoo. Working against conventional scholarship, Hazzard-Donald argues that Hoodoo emerged first in three distinct regions she calls ´´regional Hoodoo clusters´´ and that after the turn of the 19th century, Hoodoo took on a national rather than regional profile. The first interdisciplinary examination to incorporate a full glossary of Hoodoo culture, Mojo Workin´: The Old African American Hoodoo System lays out the movement of Hoodoo against a series of watershed changes in the American cultural landscape. Throughout, Hazzard-Donald distinguishes between ´´Old tradition Black Belt Hoodoo´´ and commercially marketed forms that have been controlled, modified, and often fabricated by outsiders; this study focuses on the hidden system operating almost exclusively among African Americans in the Black spiritual underground. The book is published by University of Illinois Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sharell Palmer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/116818/bk_acx0_116818_sample.mp3.
