More than a “ghost tour” that just tells stories of hauntings, this is a real, hands-on paranormal investigation tour, where you’ll hunt for ghosts in known haunted places. With a paranormal expert, learn the fundamentals of true ghost hunting, and get a chance to use authentic ghost hunting tools.This is the only way to access the haunted San Remo Hotel as a non-guest. We’ll also visit the Fior d’ Italia restaurant, a haunted bell-tower atop an old graveyard, and a parking garage reconstructed from the rubble of the Earthquake of 1906.
I'll do anything. Staff Sergeant Jasper "Ace" Atchison takes one look at Private Sonny Daye and knows that every word on paper about him is pure, unadulterated bullshit. But Sonny is desperate, and although Ace isn't going to take him up on his offer of "anything", that doesn't mean he isn't tempted. Instead, Ace takes Sonny under his wing, protecting him when they're in the service and making plans with him when they get out. Together, they're going to own a garage and build race cars and make their fortune hurtling faster than light across the desert. Together, they're going to rewrite the past, make Sonny Daye a whole and happy person, and put the ghosts in Ace's heart to rest. But not even Sonny can build a car fast enough to escape the ghosts of the past. When Sonny's ghosts drive them down and run their plans off the road, Ace finds out exactly what he's made of. Maybe Sonny was the one to promise Ace anything, but there is nothing under the sun Ace won't do to keep Sonny safe from harm. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick J. Russo.

Life on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat was postcard perfect, with year-round sunshine, cooling breezes, lush vegetation, sparkling seas, and a flourishing tourist industry. That was until 18th July 1995 when the island's volcano erupted after 400 years, bringing over 20 years of danger and uncertainty. Plenty Mango tells the island's story through the eyes of Sarah Dickinson who, with her architect husband, followed a dream to build luxury Caribbean-style villas on Montserrat. They only needed to build one more house to break even, only to have their plans shattered by the volcano. Plenty Mango is an intimate portrait of an island's peoples, such as Cynthia, the Honey Lady, Moose and his "honesty" bar, Sir George Martin and his Air Studios, the tiler who brews his very own mango 'poteen', Victor's garage that sells Bibles alongside brake pads, and the goat herd who heard the mountain "'groanin" many months before the volcano blew. We meet some of the ex-pats who love to party, with the excuse, "Hell, it's six o'clock somewhere in the world." "Jumbie" ghosts are everywhere, as are the Masquerade dancers whose vibrant costumes and heady rhythms take you back in time. You'll join in the St. Patrick's Day week-long festival, celebrating the island's Irish roots and follow the giant speakers leading the "jump up", Despite the hardship and uncertainty, Montserratians remain optimistic and undefeated. They never say "goodbye", only'Il go to come back. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Dickinson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/098616/bk_acx0_098616_sample.mp3.

Fresh from her triumph at Lucent, Carly Fiorina took command of Hewlett-Packard in July 1999. Suddenly a woman was running one of the largest technology companies on earth, venturing farther than anyone else dared into traditional men's territory. This wasn't just the engineer's realm of bits and bytes, this was the guys' world of beer blasts, rolled-up shirt sleeves, and deer-hunting trips to the founders' ranch.Perfect Enough is the definitive account of her daredevil bid to remake HP with a record-shattering $20 billion acquisition of archrival Compaq Computer. It is a story with unexpected heroes, courage in the face of disaster, and a struggle so fierce that it could only be settled in a courtroom showdown. Not since the late 1980s, when Wall Street operatives battled over the fate of RJR Nabisco, has a takeover drama so decisively moved beyond the business pages and become an enduring passage in American History.Looming in the background for the entire story are the ghosts of Dave Packard and Bill Hewlett. The two men will forever be American heroes; they founded Hewlett-Packard in a Palo Alto garage during the Great Depression and built it into what was widely known as "the best outfit on earth." Some of the book's most searingly emotional scenes come when Carly Fiorina and Bill Hewlett's oldest son, Walter, fight to the point of exhaustion about which of them is truly the rightful heir to the founders' legacy.In Perfect Enough, Anders draws on unparalleled access to Hewlett-Packard insiders and board members, including dissident Walter Hewlett, to write about a takeover battle that rocked Wall Street, stunned the computer industry, and is still being digested today. It is a spellbinding chronicle of hope, ambition, betrayal, despair, and family pride. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rick Adamson.
