How would you feel if you knew there were women out there who worked to protect the innocent from the cruel, depraved, and vindictive people who walked Earth? The Feminas, an elite group of women trained to assassinate in calculated feminine ways, work for the CLAN. They don´t use guns or their bodies as lures; instead they are calculated, precise, and not easily traced when removing their targets. They are the ´´grey women´´ who blend in, observe, and create perfect accidents. Eve, one of the Feminas, excels at target eradication. However, her compulsion for perfection causes the CLAN concern. The more she attempts to conceal her tapping to the beat of 10, the more she feels she´s breaking down. The problem is that when one suppresses emotions, then the trauma will rise in other ways. So how can Eve maintain her perfect targeting record and reconcile her denied self without facing a whitewash process? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mil Nicholson.

In December 2008, the world watched as master financier Bernard L. Madoff was taken away from his posh Manhattan apartment in handcuffs, accused of swindling thousands of innocent victims - including friends and family - out of billions of dollars in the world´s largest Ponzi scheme. Madoff went to jail; he will spend the rest of his life there. But what happened to his devoted wife and sons? The people closest to him, the public reasoned, must have known the truth behind his astounding success. Had they been tricked, too? With unprecedented access to the surviving family members - wife Ruth, son Andrew, and his fiancée Catherine Hooper - journalist Laurie Sandell reveals the personal details behind the headlines. How did Andrew and Mark, the sons who´d spent their lives believing in and building their own families around their father´s business, first learn of the massive deception? How does a wife, who had adored her husband since they were teenagers, begin to understand the ramifications of his actions? The Madoffs were a tight-knit - even claustrophobic - clan, sticking together through marriages, divorces, and illnesses. But the pressures of enduring the massive scandal pushed them to their breaking points, most of all son Mark, whose suicide is one of the many tragedies in the wake of the scandal. Muzzled by lawyers, vilified by the media, and roundly condemned by the public, the Madoffs have chosen to keep their silence - until now. Ultimately, theirs is one of the most riveting stories of our time: a modern-day Greek tragedy about money, power, lies, family, truth and consequences.
