Sample from one of the stories ( El día del juicio ): En todo Buenos Aires, no había nada como las fiestas que organizaba Carlos. Una o dos veces al año alquilaba el salón más grande del Sheraton para festejar. El motivo del festejo era lo de menos: podía ser el cumpleaños de un amigo, el éxito de ventas de una de sus compañías; o el fin de año. La fiesta más esperada, sin dudas, era la de su cumpleaños. Como el dinero no era problema, la lista de invitados a veces superaba las 500 personas. En su último cumpleaños había decenas y decenas de actores, deportistas y otras personalidades famosas de Argentina. También estaban las personas más ricas de Buenos Aires. A lo largo de las últimas décadas; Carlos Estrada había amasado una fortuna que superaba los 10 millones de dólares. En el año 2014, de hecho, era el hombre más rico de la Argentina. Tenía dinero suficiente para invitar a su fiesta de cumpleaños a toda la provincia de Buenos Aires. Pero, con el tiempo, las fiestas con mucha gente fueron perdiendo el encanto que tenían al principio. Do you really want to learn Everyday Spanish? Scroll up and click the BUY button!

El primer audio libro seleccionado por Mark Zuckerberg para su club de lectura en Facebook. El poder está cambiando de manos: de grandes ejércitos disciplinados a caóticas bandas de insurgentes; de gigantescas corporaciones a ágiles emprendedores; de los palacios presidenciales a las plazas públicas. Pero también está cambiando en sí mismo: cada vez es más difícil de ejercer y más fácil de perder. El resultado, como afirma el prestigioso analista internacional Moisés Naím, es que los líderes actuales tienen menos poder que sus antecesores, y que el potencial para que ocurran cambios repentinos y radicales sea mayor que nunca. En El fin del poder, Naím describe la lucha entre los grandes actores antes dominantes y los nuevos micro-poderes que ahora les desafían en todos los ámbitos de la actividad humana. La energía iconoclasta de los micro-poderes puede derrocar dictadores, acabar con los monopolios, y abrir nuevas e increíbles oportunidades, pero también puede conducir al caos y a la parálisis.

The novel Carlos Ruiz Zafón wrote just before The Shadow of the Wind. ´Fifteen years on, the remembrance of that day has returned to me. I have seen that boy wandering through the mist of the railway station, and the name of Marina has flared up again like a fresh wound. We all have a secret buried under lock and key in the attic of our soul. This is mine...´ In May 1980, 15-year-old Oscar Drai suddenly vanishes from his boarding school in the old quarter of Barcelona. For seven days and nights no one knows his whereabouts... His story begins in the heart of old Barcelona, when he meets Marina and her father German Blau, a portrait painter. Marina takes Oscar to a cemetery to watch a macabre ritual that occurs on the fourth Sunday of each month. At 10 a.m. precisely a coach pulled by black horses appears. From it descends a woman dressed in black, her face shrouded, wearing gloves, holding a single rose. She walks over to a gravestone that bears no name, only the mysterious emblem of a black butterfly with open wings. When Oscar and Marina decide to follow her they begin a journey that will take them to the heights of a forgotten, post-war Barcelona, a world of aristocrats and actresses, inventors and tycoons; and a dark secret that lies waiting in the mysterious labyrinth beneath the city streets.

Focusing for the first time on why attorney general Robert F. Kennedy wasn’t killed in 1963 instead of on why President John F. Kennedy was, Mark Shaw offers a stunning and provocative assassination theory that leads directly to the family patriarch, Joseph P. Kennedy. Mining fresh information and more than 40 new interviews, Shaw weaves a spellbinding narrative involving Mafia don Carlos Marcello; Jack Ruby (Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer); Ruby’s attorney, Melvin Belli; and, ultimately, the Kennedy brothers and their father. Shaw addresses these tantalizing questions: Why, shortly after his brother’s death, did a grief-stricken RFK tell a colleague, ´´I thought they would get one of us...I thought it would be me´´? Why was Belli, an attorney with almost no defense experience (but proven ties to the Mafia), chosen as Jack Ruby’s attorney? How does Belli’s Mafia connection call into question his legal strategy, which ultimately led to the Ruby’s first-degree murder conviction and death sentence? What was Joseph Kennedy’s relationship to organized crime? And how was his insistence that JFK appoint RFK as attorney general tantamount to signing the president’s death warrant? For 50 years, Shaw maintains, researchers investigating the president’s murder in Dallas have been looking at the wrong motives and actors. The Poison Patriarch offers a shocking reassessment - one that is sure to alter the course of future assassination debates. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pat Kiernan.

Joe Bernardi was the new guy in Warner Brothers Press Department, so it was no surprise when Joe was given the unenviable task of flying to Tampico, Mexico to bail Humphrey Bogart out of jail without the world learning about it. When he arrived, he discovered that Bogie wasn´t the problem. So-called accidents were occurring daily on the set, slowing down the filming of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and putting tempers on edge. Everyone knows who´s behind the sabotage, it´s the local Jefe who has a finger in every illegal pie. But suddenly the intrigue widens and the murder of one of the actors throws the company into turmoil. Day by day, Joe finds himself drawn into a dangerous web of deceit, duplicity, and blackmail. A lot of people would like to see these movie-making Yankees go home, including: Benito Santiago, Tampico´s chief of police who is out to nail El Jefe no matter what it takes. Hal Croves, the mysterious stranger who may or not be the author of the book on which the movie is based. Jose Herrera, the chauffeur who is obviously much, much more than a car driver. Miguel Iglesia, the icy and arrogant captain of the Federales who has arrived from Mexico City to take charge of the investigation. Phil Drago, the incompetent associate producer, in over his head with no idea what to do about it. Carlos Martinez, the sweaty little head of the Mexican Film Commission, always too anxious to please. Pablo Rivera, the retired police detective, unprincipled and untrustworthy. 1. Language: English.
