Beacon Audiobook Releases American Legends: The Life Of Lauren Bacall By Charles Rivers Editors

Beacon Audiobooks has just released American Legends:The Life of Lauren Bacall, written by Charles River Editors and narrated by Liz Terry.

"Imagination is the highest kite that can fly." - Lauren Bacall

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors' American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, learning interesting facts long forgotten or unknown.

It's exceedingly difficult to think about Lauren Bacall without also thinking of her famous husband, Humphrey Bogart. After all, it is no accident that Bacall was entirely unknown before starring at just 20 years old with her future husband in Howard Hawks' famous film To Have and Have Not in 1944. And of course, Bogart's infatuation with the young actress helped ensure she would continue to be cast in movies with him moving forward. "Bogie and Bacall" are just one of a number of legendary romantic screen duos in film history, and there have been other famous screen couples who made headlines off the set as well, but few compare in terms of success.

In the wake of their first film together, Bacall and Bogart captivated audiences in other films during the decade, including The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Victory (1947), and Key Largo (1948). Even though they didn't appear in a large number of films together, the popularity and cultural significance of these films solidified the status of "Bogie and Bacall" as one of the premier romantic couples in film history. When Bogart died in 1957, Bacall was still in her 30s, yet from 1957 onward her name scarcely surfaces in popular culture, as though Bacall was simply wiped away with her late husband. American Legends: The Life of Lauren Bacall profiles the life and career of a great American actress.

You will learn about Lauren Bacall like you never have before, in no time at all. Beacon Audiobooks has just released American Legends:The Life of Lauren Bacall in audiobook format and it is now available for download worldwide on digital download sites like iTunes, Amazon and

Narrated by Liz Terry and written by Charles Rivers' Editors, this book is a must have for all Lauren Bacall fans. Download your copy today!

Beacon Audiobooks Releases "Direct Action: A Deckard Novel, Book 3" By Jack Murphy

Beacon Audiobooks has just released "Direct Action: A Deckard Novel, Book 3" From New York Times best-selling author, and Special Operations veteran, Jack Murphy. A new military thriller about what happens when America's best go bad.

The right man in the wrong place.

They call themselves Liquid Sky. A group of rogue SEAL Team Six operators turned soldiers of fortune. They've got the training and combat experience to pull off the impossible as their client hires them to stoke the flames of the Arab Spring in certain Middle Eastern countries...and suppress it in others.

Deckard faces the most challenging mission of his career when he comes across intel that puts him hot on the trail of Liquid Sky's latest assassination in Pakistan. A mission that targets a pro-democracy advocate. Failing to stop the rogue cell, Deckard shoots from the hip and drops his name in the running to be Liquid Sky's newest member, replacing the one he just killed.

It is a mission unlike any other that Deckard has ever faced. As they strike their targets in the Philippines, Afghanistan, Egypt, and beyond, Deckard has to maintain his cover while sabotaging their operations. If he can hold out just a little longer, he might be able to find out who Liquid Sky is taking their marching orders from.

But the missions are only getting dirtier, and Deckard's hands are far from clean. When the time comes, not even Deckard knows if he will be able to do all that is necessary to take down Liquid Sky.
