It began on August 12, 1983, when a disturbed woman´s bizarre accusation ignited hysteria across the small Southern California community of Manhattan Beach. Driven by over-zealous investigators and a sensational news media, the legend of The McMartin Preschool became the ´´case of the century´´—the longest, most expensive criminal trial in United States history. Four years later, in the spring of 1988, in the midst of the ongoing frenzy, authors Matthew LeRoy and Deric Haddad, students at San Diego State University, left school to follow the case, a path that led them to Manhattan Beach, an upscale community where a vortex of suspicion left most residents leery of outsiders. In this instance, however, where the inquisitors were two unassuming college students, many opened their doors . . . and they had so much to say. Through the summer of 1990, the authors conducted over one hundred interviews, as they bonded with key players on both sides of the conflict. No other journalists or network reporters were able to obtain such a diverse range of sources. Now, thirty years later, this extraordinary event comes to life. Written in a creative non-fiction format, They Must Be Monsters is told through the eyes of the ´´mother who started it all.´´ Using exclusive content—her volume of lost archives—the depth of her paranoia is unveiled; the portrait of a schizophrenic woman whose dark visions became a microcosm of the community around her. These authentic, never-before-seen documents finally bring an end to the mystery behind her fateful accusations. The events of Manhattan Beach are true, an untold story, the calamity of an upscale seaside town gripped by fear, where friends turned on neighbors in a frantic campaign of misguided retribution—a devastating crucible that afflicted a generation of innocent people, an event eerily similar to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. It´s a tale of horror, rage, superstition, and faith; a shameful moment in American folklore that´s been erroneously ignored by historians—a great injustice that should´ve never taken place—but;as history tends to repeat itself, most tragically did.
Ren Lewis is the most powerful man in the world and he´s about to prove it. God, Ren believes, has battled him his entire life, trying to use him as a pawn or punish him for his wrong doings. This man, with powers most can´t fathom, has been content to use his skills to help humanity. However, when God makes a move that will carve out Ren´s heart for the rest of his life, he makes the decision to finally outmaneuver the Almighty Creator. Using technology, philosophy, quantum physics, psychology and spirituality, Ren attempts to do something that millions of people throughout history have only dreamed of. Because he´s a strategic man, Ren plans to break God´s laws and be the first human to ever do the unspeakable. This last installment in the Ren series is the final evolution in a man´s life who thought he never should have been born. Ren´s journey teaches him that not only does he have a heart, but that as powerful as he is, he is nothing without the love in his life. Ren Lewis will gain the power to hack the system to beat God at his own game, but will he be successful or banished to solitude? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Campbell.

Bathos! Crippling ennui! Mind-numbing drudgery! Brad Renfield is a white, middle-aged, lower middle class, Midwestern man stuck in Gethsemane, Ohio. Most of his friends have either died or moved away and his one remaining friend is so depressed he´s on the brink of suicide. Brad hasn´t really given much thought to the chasm of emptiness within him. He´s mostly been a loner, content with his job and his tiny apartment. He´s never thought much about being part of something. He´s never really thought about the bigger picture. Until he meets a beautiful (and possibly psychotic) girl named Dawn. Dawn leads Brad into a vicious world as hedonistically carnal as it is brutal, forcing Brad to decide if he´s going to dig deep within himself and continue to resist the community he´s remained apart from his entire life or embrace it and accept his new reality. 1.

Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He´s nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less. Sworn to serve and protect the United States of America from all monsters by one of the country’s founding fathers, Franks has only one condition to the agreement: No matter what the government learns of him, no matter what is discovered concerning his odd physiology or the alchemy behind the elixir that made him, the government is never, ever allowed to try and make more like him. Such is absolutely forbidden and should the powers-that-be do so, then the agreement is null and void. Project Nemesis: in a secret location, using sophisticated technology and advanced genetic engineering, the director of the very agency Franks works for is making more like him. And the director is not content with making one. Nope, he’s making 13. Now all bets are off, and Hell hath no fury like a monster betrayed. Particularly if that monster happens to be an undying killing machine capable of taking out vampires and werewolves with one hand tied behind his back. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Oliver Wyman.
