Full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisations of the first five Falco novels by Lindsey Davis, starring Anton Lesser as Marcus Didius Falco. The Silver Pigs: One fine day, AD 70, Sosia Camillina quite literally runs into Marcus Didius Falco on the steps of the Forum. It seems Sosia is on the run from a couple of street toughs, and after a quick and dirty rescue, PI Falco wants to know why. Hoping for future favours from Sosia's powerful uncle, Falco embarks on an intricate case of smuggling, murder, and treason that reaches into the palace itself. Shadows in Bronze: Rome, AD 71. Against his better judgment, Marcus Didius Falco secretly disposes of a decayed corpse for the Emperor Vespasian, then heads for the beautiful Bay of Naples with his friend Petronius. But this will be no holiday: they have been sent to investigate the murderous members of a failed coup, now sunning themselves in luxurious villas and on fancy yachts in Neapolis, Capreae, and Pompeii. Venus in Copper: A small accounting error has left Marcus Didius Falco sharing a cell with a large rat. But the Roman Empire's most hard-done-by investigator is finally bailed out and promptly accepts a commission to help a family of freed slaves fend off a professional bribe.... The Iron Hand of Mars: Falco is dispatched to one of the most hostile parts of the empire to deliver a new standard, an iron hand, to one of the legions. Germania is cold, wet, dismal and full of dark forests inhabited by bloodthirsty barbarians, but Falco has an even bigger problem to worry about: he has forgotten Helena Justina's birthday, and she is being pursued by the Emperor's son Titus Caesar. Poseidons Gold: Returning to Rome after his mission to Germania, Falco finds that his mother is being harassed by a centurion named Censorinus, who says he is chasing a debt owed to him by Falco's late brother, Festus. When Falco refuses to cough up the money, he and Censorinus end up fighting...and later, the centurion turns up dead. Under suspicion of murder, Falco must confront his past and uncover his brother's secrets before he can clear his name and solve the mystery. These funny and fast-moving adaptations are a treat for all Falco fans.

"'So have you always been this hot-headed?' asked Yudi, continuing to smile. 'Well, I could ask you the same thing,' I retorted cheekily. 'Touche!' Yudi grinned. I don't deny the charge. But at least I make an effort to apologize at least to some people." All her life Megha has diligently done what was expected of her: the graduation in economics, the MBA in marketing, and now the strait-laced job in a high-profile FMCG company. But lately, she's been wondering if this unending routine of juggling late hours and unreasonable deadlines is really her life's calling. Her mother's desperate attempts to put her on the marriage market are not making life any easier. And to top it all, Megha's latest project has been bogged down by a complete dearth of creative ideas, giving her nasty boss the perfect excuse to disregard the blood, sweat, and tears she's poured into her job so far. The last thing she needs is having her suggestions trampled upon by the team's new creative consultant, Yudi: gorgeous, sardonic and only too eager to disagree with Megha. And so the stage is set for a quirky battle of wits and some unexpected romance.

Winner of the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award, Silver PEN Award, 1987.The acclaimed travel writer's youthful journey - as an 18-year-old - across 1930s Europe by foot began in A Time of Gifts, which covered the author's exacting journey from the Lowlands as far as Hungary. Picking up from the very spot on a bridge across the Danube where his readers last saw him, we travel on with him across the great Hungarian Plain on horseback, and over the Romanian border to Transylvania.The trip was an exploration of a continent which was already showing signs of the holocaust which was to come. Although frequently praised for his lyrical writing, Fermor's account also provides a coherent understanding of the dramatic events then unfolding in Middle Europe. But the delight remains in travelling with him in his picaresque journey past remote castles, mountain villages, monasteries and towering ranges.

Marriage is an ancient institution that spreads across the ages. Different rituals, depending on the faith of the two people getting married, are performed. The term marriage encompasses much more than the simple repetition of prayers, performance of rites, or ceremonies. It also describes a commitment of two people that is meant to endure through those individuals' lives. Sometimes married couples reach a point in which the durability of the relationship is questioned. These individuals often seek out help - sometimes through counseling. Other times those couples seek out reading material that might advise them on ways to improve the marriage. One such example of a wonderful book was written by Dr. John Gottman. Dr. Gottman has 40 years' worth of experience as a psychologist and relationship expert and has penned several books to aid and advise couples in relationships. The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work is the culmination of Dr. Gottman's lifelong work. It is an overview of the concepts, behaviors, and skills that guide couples on a rewarding path toward a harmonious and long-lasting relationship. This book is straightforward in its approach and quite profound. The principles outlined in this book teach partners new strategies for making their marriage work. Dr. Gottman has scientifically analyzed the habits of married couples and established a method for correcting the behavior that puts thousands of marriages on the rocks. He helps couples focus on each other and on paying attention to the small day-to-day moments that make up the foundation of any relationship. Packed with questionnaires and exercises with an effectiveness that has been proven in Dr. Gottman's workshops, this is the definitive guide for all who want their relationships to reach their highest potential.

'When I was 12 years old God spoke to my father for the first time. God didn't say much. He told my father to be a painter and left it at that.... ' So begins Niall Williams' magical tale about love and destiny. Nicholas Coughlan and Isabel Gore were made for each other - but fate doesn't always take the easiest or the most obvious route to true love. For a start, Nicholas and Isabel have never met and nor are they likely to, without some kind of divine intervention. But as God, ghosts, a series of coincidences and seemingly chance events and encounters conspire to bring the couple together, other - often more human - forces attempt to keep them apart. 'What will be, will be,' of course, but that doesn't guarantee a happy-ever-after ending, nor answer the question 'Will they or won't they?'

Motherhood isnt easy, especially when youre a mother of a Black son. Ten years ago, Cheryl jumped at the chance to send her son, Javonte, to an exclusive boarding school in New England - far away from Atlanta and the violence of the city streets. It was the American dream, or was it? Now settled in Vermont, Javonte is married and well-employed, but Cheryl hardly ever sees him, and when she does, her own son seems like someone she only used to know. So, when Javonte announces hes coming home to Atlanta for MLK weekend, Cheryl calls off work, thinking this could be their chance to reconnect. But a few days before the visit, Javonte cancels his trip. After begging for the hours back at the white glove moving company where she works, Cheryl accepts a last-minute gig in her own neighborhood, cheered by the idea of a Black family moving on to bigger and better. But on her way to the job site, Cheryl learns the homes occupants arent moving by choice. Over the next several hours, Cheryl must reckon with her own unresolved past in this searing story about family, race, and the lasting consequences of a choice that cant be taken back.

I know exactly why it turns you on...because you're messed up too. Asha's life is no fairytale, by any stretch of the imagination. There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly, no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills. You're not born to sharks without becoming one yourself. In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected - and feared - in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things, freedom, power, massive eligibility - while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation. Like attracts like... Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can't stay away from each other, there's only one choice...ante up. Contains mature themes.

Chesterton's compilation of essays in Heretics discusses the difference in Orthodoxy and Heretics, rational vs. irrational, and denial vs. affirmation. He questions the reason for the existence of man and the universe and calls out many prominent figures in the artistic and literary fields for their unorthodox ideas; thus labeling them heretics. He will have you thinking of favorite authors like Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, and H.G. Wells in a new light, challenging their ideals and morals. He pleads for people to believe in something, but not to believe in just anything. He rails against the greatest mental destruction, having everything constantly denied to you and nothing affirmed. Chesterton believes that anyone who did not believe in the Christian God, was dangerous and were very wrong. Nearly every minute of this book has a quotable passage that will really get you thinking about the meaning of life and the different ideas that are being put into the world. Heretics reveals to the listener that their deepest held values, beliefs, and moral compasses may be deeply flawed from within. Chesterton also hones in on the concept that ideas are the most dangerous thing we have in life and there are very real consequences to those ideas.

The two extraordinary women and their guide, Omaha Dunn, are not the only ones being drawn to the desert. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Painter Crowe, a covert government operative and head of an elite counter-espionage team, is hunting down a dangerous turncoat and the trail is pointing him toward Ubar. What is hidden below the sand is more than a valuable relic of ancient history. It is an ageless power that lives and breathes. Many lives have already been destroyed by ruthless agencies dedicated to guarding its mysteries and harnessing its might. The end may be at hand for Kara, Safia, Crowe, and all of the interlopers who wish to expose its mysteries, as it prepares to unleash the most terrible storm of all.

Learn about the opinions of Dinesh D'Souza regarding the legacy and future of America in a fraction of the time it takes to listen to the actual book! In chapter one, Dinesh D'Souza outlines the basic contention of his book which is that America is committing suicide, not by inadvertence or neglect, but by deliberate policy. The villains who have conspired to make national suicide a policy are progressives of whom Barack Obama is the most powerful spokesman and executive. The progressives, who, according to D'Souza, are engineering America's destruction, believe that doing so is the pathway to a better world. The basic progressive argument for that is that America's power and wealth have been built on slavery and theft. The argument asserts that the early settlers stole the land from Native Americans and later from France and Mexico. They enslaved Africans to work it. American capitalism is institutionalized theft because it deprives the workers of a fair share of the profits. America's foreign policy is based on theft of resources. (It is in the Middle East to steal the oil.) Justice and a better world all around demand guilt and atonement: restoration and reparations for that theft and a complete change in behavior. Extreme progressives hope for America to cease to exist. More moderate progressives, of whom Obama is one, envision America's reconstruction in a better form. Here is a preview of what you'll learn when you download your copy today: General overview and summary of America: Imagine a World without Her How America is considered the land of freedom by different groups The reason why America is believed to be losing ground to China Learn how to build a better America by understanding popular opinions

Learn About Trauma and Traumatic Disorders in a Fraction of the Time! Bessel Van der Kolk, MD, is the author of The Body Keeps the Score. In this book, Bessel examines the ways that trauma can affect people and how they can recover from past traumatic events. When a person experiences trauma, it will change the wiring in their brain, and this will cause a change in the way that a person views their life and everyday situations. Trauma has a negative effect on both the body and mind in a way that will prevent a person affected by trauma from enjoying the present moment. Bessel and his colleagues have been researching trauma and the people affected by it for almost 50 years. This journey began for Dr. Van der Kolk when he met with Vietnam War veterans who were suffering from the trauma they experienced in the war. This trauma caused these veterans to struggle with the transition of coming back home and resuming normal lives. These trauma sufferers all had certain symptoms that they shared. The traumatic events that were experienced at war were constantly being replayed in the brains of the veterans. In addition to this, the veterans appeared to be numb or indifferent to everyday life, and they would become angry very easily. Dr. Van der Kolk is considered to be the very first doctor to diagnose and recognize post-traumatic stress disorder, which is also known as PTSD. He was also one of the first doctors to identify cures and methods for assisting people who are affected by PTSD so that they can once again live normal lives. Here is a preview of what you'll learn: How traumatic disorders affect people mentally and physically Why pharmaceutical drugs and talk therapy do not cure PTSD How Dr. Van der Kolk has progressed the medical community's understanding of traumatic disorders

From the New York Times best-selling author of I Don't Know How She Does It comes an audiobook about starting over and facing life with a sense of humor. This program is read by acclaimed actor Poppy Miller, who stars as Ginny Weasley in the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Allison Pearson's brilliant debut novel, I Don't Know How She Does It, was a New York Times best seller with four million copies sold around the world. Called "the definitive social comedy of working motherhood" (The Washington Post) and "a hysterical look - in both the laughing and crying senses of the world - at the life of Supermom" (The New York Times), I Don't Know How She Does It introduced Kate Reddy, a woman as sharp as she was funny. As Oprah Winfrey put it, Kate's story became "the national anthem for working mothers." Seven years later, Kate Reddy is facing her 50th birthday. Her children have turned into impossible teenagers; her mother and in-laws are in precarious health; and her husband is having a midlife crisis that leaves her desperate to restart her career after years away from the workplace. Once again, Kate is scrambling to keep all the balls in the air in a juggling act that an early review from the UK Express hailed as "sparkling, funny, and poignant...a triumphant return for Pearson." Will Kate reclaim her rightful place at the very hedge fund she founded, or will she strangle in her new shaping underwear? Will she rekindle an old flame, or will her house burn to the ground when a rowdy mob shows up for her daughters surprise (to her parents) Christmas party? Surely it will all work out in the end. After all, how hard can it be?

When the Side N*gga Catch Feelings is the story of two women who are unfaithful for two totally different reasons, yet wind up with the same catastrophic outcome. Meet Heaven: a young girl who is loving, submissive, and beyond appreciative of her husband, Ross. As a teenager, Heaven lived solely for her sister, Divine, and her daughter, Sunshine. Because her mother is mentally ill and her father ran off, Heaven had to do some unimaginable things just to feed the family. Then came Ross, and everything changed. He wasn't some filthy rich, dope boy that some young girls dream of, but Heaven felt like Ross was her blessing. Yet, Ross turned out to be a wolf wrapped decadently in sheep's clothing. Still, Heaven was willing to take the bad just to keep the good. The drama was all worth it for the luxuries of food, clothes, and shelter, not just for herself, but, more so, for Divine and Sunshine. And then there's Treasure. How is it that a woman can have a good man and still not be satisfied? Treasure is far from as submissive as her best friend, Heaven. As a teenager, Treasure had always been the type of girl to juggle two or three boys. Once she was older and met a real man, Vegas, she tried to commit. All of that went out of the window, though, when she met the one that allowed her to be the ride or die chick that she had always fantasized about being. Treasure isn't the only promiscuous woman in this story, however, because Heaven eventually succumbs to the wooing of a man that wants to treat her far better than her ain't-sh*t-husband. She knows that Ross deserves her infidelity. He had never been loyal or faithful to her. However, one thing he had never done was cheat on Heaven with someone in their circle. In this tale of lust, lies, and mayhem, Heaven fights with the feelings that she has for her side dude while Treasure basks in hers. That is, until all hell breaks loose. These two side dudes that Heaven and Treasure have fallen for pretended as if they could play second to another man...until their feelings got in the way. Then egos clash, bonds are broken, and, with two beasts like Vegas and Ross, a life is lost in this group's tight-knit circle...all because these ladies chose wrong.

Thus does Casca's journey begin, a man who cannot die, does not age, and knows no skills but those of battle.

John Rain has disappeared to Brazil to escape the killing business and the enemies encircling him in Japan. But the CIA isn't willing to lose its premier "natural causes" contract killer, and they force Rain to take on a high-risk assignment: eliminate a ruthless arms dealer operating in Southeast Asia. The upside? Financial, of course, along with the ongoing chimera of moral redemption. But first, Rain will have to survive the downside: a second assassin zeroing in on the target; the target's consort, an alluring and dangerous woman with an agenda of her own; the possibility that the entire mission is nothing but an elaborate setup. From the gorgeous beaches of Rio to the glitzy casinos of Macau to the gritty back streets of Hong Kong and Kowloon, Rain becomes a reluctant player in an international game far deadlier and more insidious than any he has encountered before.

Nightwood, Djuna Barnes's strange and sinuous tour de force novel unfolds in the decadent shadows of Europe's great cities, Paris, Berlin, and Vienna - a world in which the boundaries of class, religion, and sexuality are bold but surprisingly porous. The outsized characters who inhabit this world are some of the most memorable in all of fiction - there is Guido Volkbein, the Wandering Jew and son of a self-proclaimed baron; Robin Vote, the American expatriate who marries him and then engages in a series of affairs, first with Nora Flood and then with Jenny Petherbridge, driving all of her lovers to distraction with her passion for wandering alone in the night; and there is Dr. Matthew-Mighty-Grain-of-Salt-Dante-O'Connor, a transvestite and ostensible gynecologist, whose digressive speeches brim with fury, keen insights, and surprising allusions. Barnes's depiction of these characters and their relationships has made the novel a landmark of feminist and lesbian literature.

Professor Perl invites you in these eight lectures to abandon your preconceptions and consider some of the most controversial authors of the 20th century: the Modernists.Who were they? How did "classical" Modernists like Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and James Joyce differ from "neo-Modernists" like Gertrude Stein and William Carlos Williams? What made them believe and write as they did? Why were political extremism, war, and self-destructive behavior such defining forces in their writing (and their personal demons)? What do they have to say to us today in the 21st century? These lectures place literary Modernism within the wide-ranging context of the philosophy, literature, politics, and morality of its time. In doing so, they allow you to look more clearly at the writers and works who have contributed to the definition of human culture. You'll see Eliot, Joyce, Pound, Yeats, James, Lawrence, and others spring to life with their radical beliefs about art and their unforgettable novels and stories. These lectures do not shrink from the challenges imposed by exploring Modernism, or from challenging the answers that scholars have routinely accepted. Nor do they shy away from the difficulties of literary Modernism itself; a literary genre that intimidates many. But despite all this, these lectures are brilliantly organized, crystal clear, and an invaluable tool for finally wrapping your brain around a dramatic roster of authors and an enduring canon of literature.

But beyond his astonishing feats of language and dramatic impact, Shakespeare also left us a legacy in the explorations of suffering and transgression offered in the six great mature tragediesHamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Antony and Cleopatra, and Coriolanusthat make up the astonishing body of work he produced from 1600 to 1608. This series of 24 exciting lectures from an award-winning teacher takes you deep within each play to observe Shakespeare's protagonists struggling to make choices in the face of competing social, moral, and psychological pressures and "clawing [from] their pain and horror," as Professor Kinney puts it, " [to] a kind of insight."

It's a gift that will increase the dramatic impact of every Shakespearean tragedy you see on the stage or screen, or visualize as you read them, as well as enhance your ability to form insights on your own with each reading or performance.

Baruch Spinoza has been called the Prince of Philosophers; Hegel said of him that the alternative was: either Spinoza, or no philosophy at all. By laying the groundwork for the 18th-century Enlightenment and modern biblical criticism, including modern conceptions of the self and the universe, he came to be considered one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy: he had the courage to criticize the traditionalism of religion, to offer a conception of God that would be logic instead of rigidly defined by a shallow dogma. This audiobook is a collection of a hundred quotes chosen among the most representative of his great works, so that the listener can easily familiarize himself with the thought of one of the greatest European thinkers.

As the two investigations come to a head, it is anybody's guess who will prevail - or even come out of it alive.

Courteous Reader, As I was considering with myself what I had written concerning the progress of the pilgrim from this world to glory and how it had been acceptable to many in this nation, it came again into my mind to write, as then, of him that was going to heaven, so now, of the life and death of the ungodly, and of their travel from this world to Hell. The which in this I have done, and have put it, as thou seest, under the name and title of Mr. Badman, a name very proper for such a subject. I have also put it into the form of a dialogue, that I might with more ease to myself, and pleasure to the listener, perform the work. And although, as I said, I have put it forth in this method, yet have I as little as may be, gone out of the road of mine own observation of things. Yea, I think I may truly say, that to the best of my remembrance, all the things that here I discourse of, I mean as to matter of fact, have been acted upon the stage of this world, even many times before mine eyes. Here therefore, Courteous Reader, I present thee with the life and death of Mr. Badman indeed: Yea, I do trace him in his life, from his childhood to his death; that thou mayest, as in a glass, behold with thine own eyes, the steps that take hold of Hell; and also discern, while thou art hearing of Mr. Badman's death, whether thou thy self art treading in his path thereto.

First published in 1682, John Bunyan's allegorical novel The Holy War is a classic of Christian literature whose spiritual insight rivals that of even his most famous work, The Pilgrim's Progress. It tells the story of Mansoul, a utopia built to exalt the greatness and honor of its creator and leader, King Shaddai. However, when the wicked Diabolus, a former high servant of Shaddai's and the king of the blacks, assaults Mansoul, the town forgets its benevolent king and falls under his iniquitous rule. With the citizens of his beloved city lost to sin and vice, Shaddai sends his son, Prince Emmanuel, to deliver them from Diabolus' tyranny. An epic tale of good versus evil, The Holy War is not only a masterpiece of religious literature, but also an entertaining and engaging story for all listeners.

Kieran Hodgson stars as Pliny the Younger in Hattie Naylors engaging drama charting the fortunes of a household in Ancient Rome.
The Emperor Domitian has informers everywhere; no-one is safe. He rules Rome with a rod of iron, and he is dangerously unstable and paranoid. In the snake pit of Imperial Rome, all Pliny the Younger wants to do is get his letters ready for publication.
Except if he, his mother Marcella, their Greek cook Doris (who narrowly missed out on becoming the next Oracle at Delphi), and Venta, their slave with secretarial skills, have any chance of surveying, they are going to have to negotiate a political minefield, keep their eyes peeled for spies and, most of all, not do anything to annoy the Emperor.
Easier said than done.

"Un jour je m'en irai sans en avoir tout dit"... Mais peut-on jamais "tout dire" ? Dans ce livre audio construit en triptyque, Jean d'Ormesson observe une société en constante mutation et où les anciennes catégories s'entrechoquent, comme l'illustre l'histoire en forme de parabole de ce bouddhiste milliardaire et communiste que l'amour confronte à une famille traditionnelle. Tout change, sauf peut-être l'amour, s'il est bien ce sentiment qui fait que deux êtres, au lieu de s'abîmer dans une contemplation mutuelle, regardent ensemble dans la même direction. Et aussi le tenace "espoir de Dieu", dont ni la science ni la philosophie n'ont eu raison dans le cur des hommes. Un livre audio profond mais jamais obscur, et porté par ce goût du bonheur qui anime toute l'uvre de Jean d'Ormesson. L'interprétation nuancée de Daniel Nicodème rend parfaitement justice à la réflexion de Jean d'Ormesson, lucide mais toujours en empathie avec le monde.

Nighthawk: African Ice is a sequel to Nighthawk Crossing. It ends in the old-fashioned "to be continued" format. Wanted by the FBI for murder and smuggling, Joseph Branson, chief of the Midlake Indian tribe and a former Navy SEAL, flees with his wife Hazel to the Maldives in the Indian Ocean where he is a business partner with Igor Romanoff, one of the world's biggest arms merchants. All this is carefully watched by the CIA. Joseph and Igor begin trading weapons for raw diamonds sourced from conflict zones in Africa. Joseph sets up a system to cut and polish raw diamonds and profit from the added value. In the process, they wind up dealing with African Jihadists establishing the Central African caliphate, threatening to engage much of Northern and Central Africa in genocide. Selling the cut high grade diamonds takes Joseph to Colombian cocaine processors who trade immobile US dollars for more mobile diamonds. In the meantime, Hazel returns to the Midlake Indian tribe and runs for chief to replace Joseph. She is opposed. Her life is threatened, and she kills.

Simon Sinek, in his book Leaders Eat Last calls for a style of leadership which puts plenty of emphasis on serving people rather than focusing on individual goals or shareholder interests. Leadership styles in this day and age focus on making money and bonuses instead of making sure the workforce has a good working environment. Engagement and job satisfaction are increased by leaders who see their employers as their family. Doing so increases levels of productivity and reduces stress because the workforce feels some sense of security. Take the US Marine Corps for example; their leaders comes to the table last and the low ranking soldiers eat first to make everyone feel important and loved. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book.

The gospel stories as you've never heard them before. Everyone knows the story of Jesus' life as told in the Gospels - and perhaps because it is so familiar, we have forgotten what an extraordinary life it was. Through these five plays, the story is pieced together as if from the memories of those who were there and saw events for themselves: Jesus' mother, Mary; his closest friends; the Jewish high priest; and the Roman governor.They recount the events they witnessed as if they had happened just the other day - and the effect on their own lives. How James and John first encountered Jesus by the lake; the three astonishing years of his ministry; his trial and ignominious death; the wholly unexpected resurrection; and finally, his mother Mary looks back to his obscure birth and the portents that accompanied it. And so the tale regains some of its freshness and even shocking nature. Each play is followed by a short interview feature, 'Witness: Behind Luke's Gospel', presented by Ernie Rea and examining the themes of Luke.Featured are Tom Goodman-Hill as Jesus, Paul Hilton as Judas, Peter Firth as Peter, and Penelope Wilton as Mary.

Anthony Mareno Peron is the son of South American terrorist, drug lord, and political activist Antonio Peron. When the elder Peron and most of the leadership of his organization, known collectively as Peronists, is killed by US agents in Venezuela, his much more vicious and ambitious son takes control of the organization. The younger Peron re-names his family's criminal business empire Morning Son. When Morning Son aggressively begins expanding it's operations into the continental US, the US Department of Defense assigns its highly classified and secretive agency, ATUR, to find and destroy A.M. Peron and Morning Son. The search takes ATUR members Kat Davis, Karlie Davis and their highly trained associates the South Pacific, New Zealand, throughout North America, and Europe. Though the Davis Sisters find and destroy both A.M. Peron and Morning Son, success comes at a high cost and leaves both the Department of Defense and ATUR with more questions than answers. The diverse cast of characters in Finding Morning Son provides a unique historical look at the dark underside of espionage and counter-espionage, as the Davis Sisters and their team learn how far-reaching touch of the one-time small South American terrorist organization has grown. Their previous adventure of finding and destroying a group of international billionaires, who planned to disrupt global banking and communications, and control the world, almost killed Katherine "Kat" Davis and nearly emotionally destroyed her sister, Karlie Davis. Finding their own identity in this experience forces them to take a much more hard-core approach to find Morning Son.

Learn About the Issues Associated with American Race Relations in a Fraction of the Time! It is clear that many of the things the author talks about in this book are things that most black people would be afraid to talk about in America. However, these are issues that all Americans must have an understanding of. There are many other books that talk about what racial relations in America are like today, but they do not reflect on the long history of racial relations in America. The author brings new insight into the way America was built. It is clear that America has tried to rewrite its history so that people are not aware of all the horrible acts that took place. From the time the author was a child, he asked himself many questions and he read many books to find answers to these questions, because the people around him did not seem to have a clear understanding. This is a book that all Americans should listen to. Many white Americans clearly do not want to deal with or face these issues, but this is very necessary in creating a future America that consists of unity and equality. It is important that the author's views on how to make a positive change are understood by American society. Here is a preview of what you'll learn: How Coates educated himself about the real history of America while attending Howard University The reason why Coates believes most black people in America live in fear Learn how Coates teaches his son about the world we live in

Reading great literature well has the power to cultivate virtue. Great literature increases knowledge of and desire for the good life by showing readers what virtue looks like and where vice leads. It is not just what one reads but how one reads that cultivates virtue. Reading good literature well requires one to practice numerous virtues, such as patience, diligence, and prudence. And learning to judge wisely a character in a book, in turn, forms the reader's own character. Acclaimed author Karen Swallow Prior takes fans on a guided tour through works of great literature both ancient and modern, exploring 12 virtues that philosophers and theologians throughout history have identified as most essential for good character and the good life. In reintroducing ancient virtues that are as relevant and essential today as ever, Prior draws on the best classical and Christian thinkers, including Aristotle, Aquinas, and Augustine. Covering authors from Henry Fielding to Cormac McCarthy, Jane Austen to George Saunders, and Flannery O'Connor to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Prior explores some of the most compelling universal themes found in classic books, helping readers learn to love life, literature, and God through their encounters with great writing. In examining works by these authors and more, Prior shows why virtues such as prudence, temperance, humility, and patience are still necessary for human flourishing and civil society.

At the time of his death, Italo Calvino was at work on six lectures setting forth the qualities in writing he most valued and which he believed would define literature in the century to come. Here, in Six Memos for the Next Millennium, are the five lectures he completed, forming not only a stirring defense of literature but also an indispensable guide to the writings of Calvino himself. He devotes one "memo" each to the concepts of lightness, quickness, exactitude, visibility, and multiplicity, drawing examples from his vast knowledge of myth, folklore, and works both ancient and modern.

When Faye Travers is called upon to appraise the estate of a family in her small New Hampshire town, she isn't surprised to discover a forgotten cache of valuable Native American artifacts. However, she stops dead in her tracks when she finds in the collection a rare drum, ornamented with symbols she doesn't recognize and dressed in red tassels and a beaded belt and skirt, especially since, without touching the instrument, she hears it sound. From Faye's discovery, we trace the drum's passage, from the reservation on the northern plains to New Hampshire and back. Through the voice of Bernard Shaawano, an Ojibwe, we hear how his grandfather fashioned the drum after years of mourning his young daughter's death, and how it changes the lives of those whose paths its crosses. And through Faye we hear of her anguished relationship with a local sculptor, who himself mourns the loss of a daughter, and of the life she has made alone with her mother, in the shadow of the death of Faye's sister. Through these compelling voices, The Painted Drum explores the strange power that lost children exert on the memories of those they leave behind, and the intricate, transformative rhythms of human grief. One finds throughout the grace and wit, the captivating prose, and surprising beauty that characterize Louise Erdrich's finest work.

During this period, she began writing short works that captured the zeitgeist of African-American life and transformed her into one of the central figures of the Harlem Renaissance. Nearly a century later, this singular talent is recognized as one of the most influential and revered American artists of the modern period. Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick is an outstanding collection of stories about love and migration, gender and class, racism and sexism that proudly reflect African-American folk culture. Brought together for the first time in one volume, they include eight of Hurstons "lost" Harlem stories, which were found in forgotten periodicals and archives.

Death hurled a ghastly challenge at Secret Agent "X." A torch of terror burned above Doom's table where they played. And charred, unsightly corpses were the jackstraws dealt him by the grim gamester's boney hand. A nameless mystery man with a wartime past, backed by a shadowy group of powerful philanthropists, Secret Agent "X" took on the toughest assignments of the dirty thirties. Operating out of the half-haunted Montgomery Mansion, "X" was also known as the Man of a Thousand Faces. A past master of disguise, he infiltrated the Underworld to crush crime in all of its hideous manifestations. No one knew who Secret Agent "X "really was. Not his readers. Not his editors. Not even his writer, conceivably. To this day, 80 years later, his true identity is still a deep mystery. That's keeping a secret! For Secret Agent "X", it was decreed that he would pit himself against villains who were maestros of unbridled horror. Melodrama was the rule of the day. But the unknown "X" plunged into maelstroms of raw bloodlust, undreamed of by The Shadow and Doc Savage. His foes were truly depraved. Terrorists. Torturers. Kidnappers. Stranglers. Arsonists. These were the types of tabloid master criminals our nameless hero hunted. Writer Paul Chadwick communicated the essence of the new series with the horrific titles of his novels. The Death-Torch Terror stands out as an early example of the fearful proceedings. In this thrilling tale, a series of bank robberies are marked by a trail of incinerated corpses. What sinister weapon has been fielded that reduces living flesh and bone to charred husks? When New York's police commissioner is abducted by the murderous gang, the Man of Mystery and Destiny dons his warpaint, and takes up the trail. But will the fires of doom engulf "X", too? The Death-Torch Terror first appeared in Secret Agent "X" magazine, April, 1934 and is read in fearful intonations by Milton Bagby.

A failed prodigy and child of divorce, Francesca Dunn is also an adolescent like any other, trying to find her identity and figure out her place in the world. One night, Chester, a visionary homeless man (or an insane one, depending on your point of view) "sees" Francesca hovering over the river, bathed in celestial light. Days later, as Francesca serves meals to the needy in a local cafi, Chester falls to his knees before her in adoration. Word spreads, hordes of followers converge, and the result is a catastrophic storm of fervent belief and doubt, the relentless and perpetual desire for salvation, possible miracles, and an adolescent trapped by events far beyond her control. The Annunciation of Francesca Dunn is a beautifully crafted tale about people who pin their hopes for spiritual salvation on a young girl; and how, slowly, surely, and tragically, she comes to believe that she is the divine being they want her to be. At stake for each is nothing less than the fundamental belief in the structure of the world, and the balance between the miraculous and the mundane. Narrating by turns are four disparate characters who tell the story as they see it: Chester, who smells fear, disease, and holiness and appoints himself Francesca's protector and follower; Anne Dunn, Francesca's paleobotanist mother, who places her faith in Darwin and natural selection; Sid, the schoolmate, who wants to use Francesca's new circumstances for her own profit; and Francesca herself, who becomes increasingly deluded by the adoration bestowed upon her. At once powerful, tender, and humorous, The Annunciation of Francesca Dunn is an astonishing and resonant work from an exciting new talent. With each of its gentle revelations, the novel brings an unforgettable cast of characters to vibrant life as it brilliantly explores the seductive and destructive power of belief.

Learn about how American minorities are targeted by unjust laws in order to keep them out of mainstream society in a fraction of the time it takes to hear the actual book! Michelle Alexander names three audiences whom she intends to reach and inform with her book. The first is composed of people who care profoundly about racial justice but who do not yet realize the enormous crisis of mass incarceration of people of color. The second is composed of the people who recognize a trend in the criminal justice system that resembles the racism of decades ago but who do not have the facts to back their beliefs. Last of all, she hopes to reach the many people incarcerated in the American prison system. She then uses an anecdote to explain her main point, that the US incarceration system continues the racial discrimination evident in our country's history. Jarvious Cotton's great-great grandfather was unable to vote because he was a slave. Cotton's great grandfather was killed by the Ku Klux Klan for attempting to vote. His grandfather did not vote because of the KKK's threats. Cotton's father could not vote because of poll taxes and literacy tests. And, finally, Cotton cannot vote because he was once convicted as a felon. Alexander explains that voting is the most basic democratic freedom and right, yet black people throughout US history have been unable to hold or else exercise that right. Furthermore, racial discrimination continues today in a legalized form because once-convicted felons are legally required to explain their background and may be legally refused service or opportunities because of it. While the reasons and rationalizations that have been used to support racial exclusion and discrimination have changed over the years, the outcome is mostly the same.

No! I wasnt raised in the church. It didnt happen until my mother fell ill and God took her away from me for no reason at all. Cancer, they say. But I needed to hear it from God, so I began talking with him every day until my friends started calling me crazy. At that point, I started removing myself from the in crowd and became a loner. I left Augusta, Georgia a little over a year after I graduated from high-school and took a Greyhound bus to Atlanta. From that point, I lived in a womens shelter and joined a pretty decent church. Then, I found my position as the Sunday school teacher. I loved working with the youths. That was until I met a man. The man that my pastor had warned me about. He knew him so well because they were brothers from the same womb. I should have turned away then. God was trying to tell me something. Instead, I fell into his powerful arms. Honestly, I didnt see anything wrong with falling in love in church. Then, at the blink of an eye, I was standing in the courtroom, my eyes were filled with tears, and I was frightened. The jury had been deliberating for the last few hours, only to find me guilty on all counts. The judge wasnt light on me either. He sentenced me to life in a Georgia state womens prison. And thats when I stopped believing in God. Everyone has a testimony, but Annabelle Humphrey has a hope-filled and inspirational story about faith, love, friendship, and redemption that will certainly grab you from the first chapter to the very last one.

Beloved by generations of readers, the Chronicles of Narnia are thought, erroneously, by some to be "mere children's stories". In this volume, Joseph Pearce thoroughly debunks the error as he skillfully explains why there is nothing "mere" about such stories. Rather, the Narnia books contain profound insights concerning the human condition. Pearce, however, goes beyond even that and illuminates the deeper riches and profound truths found therein: the highest truths, in fact, those concerning God. Join Pearce as he explores the "grown-up" themes that are so important for a proper understanding of Lewis' magnificent creation, including the deep and profound Christian symbolism, extensive literary allusions, and the constant theme of temptation, sin, and redemption. The author of numerous literary works and an authority on the writings of Lewis, Chesterton, and Tolkien, Pearce is uniquely qualified to examine the deeper theological, philosophical, and historical dimensions of the Chronicles. With Pearce as your guide, "return to Narnia" and come to understand in new and profound ways that place which has so marked the imaginative landscape of so many. Rediscover your love for Narnia, because "wardrobes are for grown-ups too".

"There I go doing it again," she said to herself, referring to the way that she periodically smiled at the thought of how her hard work had paid off. "After all, I deserve to toot my own horn. And if I dont, who will?" As Spicy sat caressing the seating, she smiled once again in a vain attempt to shield those in the room from the narcissism with which shes so heavily fragranced. "The lighting is just perfect," she thought aloud as the movers waited for instructions on placement of the extremely heavy sofa table. "Oh! Forgive me for being so inconsiderate; its fine to just sit it next to the winding staircase." "That will surely knock them off of their feet," she said to the men. "What do you fellows think?" After looking at her blankly, they glared at one another in dismay at the nerve of the overbearing, self-centered, self-righteous, late 30-something and understandably single daydreaming professional. You fellows must be tired of me by now. This is my third move this year. It didnt seem to dawn on her that the movers only worked for the company and hadnt a clue, nor concern that she had moved two times already that year. She wouldnt be missed much by friends for they were few, and she would be content as long as she was to find someone else to manipulate. Spicy and resilient. Just as her name implied this young lady comes prepared with an east coast game that was unwavering.

What is literary theory? Is there a relationship between literature and culture? These are some of questions addressed by Jonathan Culler in this new edition of his highly popular Literary Theory: A Very Short Introduction. Culler, an extremely lucid commentator and much admired in the field of literary theory, uses easy-to-grasp examples as he outlines the ideas behind schools of criticism that can otherwise be quite daunting, such as deconstruction, semiotics, and postcolonial theory. He explains "theory" not by describing warring "schools" but by sketching key "moves" that theory has encouraged, and by speaking directly about the implications of theory for thinking about literature, human identity, and the power of language. In this Second Edition, Culler includes much new material, including a discussion of the "death of theory," a look at topics such as trauma theory, eco-criticism, and the link between the theory of narrative and cognitive science, plus a new chapter on "Ethics and Aesthetics." Shedding light on everything from literature and social identity, to poetry, poetics, and rhetoric, Literary Theory is a welcome guide for all lovers of literature.

Reports of the death of reading are greatly exaggerated. Do you worry that you've lost patience for anything longer than a tweet? If so, you're not alone. Digital-age pundits warn that as our appetite for books dwindles, so too do the virtues in which printed, bound objects once trained us: the willpower to focus on a sustained argument, the curiosity to look beyond the day's news, the willingness to be alone. The shelves of the world's great libraries, though, tell a more complicated story. Examining the wear and tear on the books that they contain, English Professor Leah Price finds scant evidence that a golden age of reading ever existed. From the dawn of mass literacy to the invention of the paperback, most readers already skimmed and multitasked. Print-era doctors even forbade the very same silent absorption now recommended as a cure for electronic addictions. The evidence that books are dying proves even scarcer. In encounters with librarians, booksellers, and activists who are reinventing old ways of reading, Price offers fresh hope to bibliophiles and literature lovers alike.

The last book written by the most famous literary critic of his generation, on the sustaining power of poetry. This dazzling celebration of the power of poetry to sublimate death - completed weeks before Harold Bloom died - shows how literature renews life amid what Milton called a universe of death. Bloom reads as a way of taking arms against the sea of life's troubles, taking listeners on a grand tour of the poetic voices that have haunted him through a lifetime of reading. High literature, he writes, is a saving lie against time, loss of individuality, premature death. In passages of breathtaking intimacy, we see him awake late at night, reciting lines from Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Montaigne, Blake, Wordsworth, Hart Crane, Jay Wright, and many others. He feels himself edged by nothingness, uncomprehending, but still sustained by reading. Generous and clear-eyed, this is among Harold Bloom's most ambitious and most moving books.

So when an old nemesis from the Japanese national police force comes to him with a new job - eliminate Murakami, a killer even more fearsome than Rain himself - Rain knows he can't refuse.

It's a war Rain can't win, but also one he can't afford to lose - a war where the distinctions between friend and foe and truth and deceit are as murky as the rain-slicked streets of Tokyo.

Come si dà voce ai personaggi di un audiolibro? Come si entra nello spirito di una trama? Sono alcune delle domande che rivolgeremo a chi gli audiolibri li scrive, li pubblica e, soprattutto, li legge - attrici, attori, doppiatori e speaker -, in questo podcast che ogni 15 giorni racconterà due audiolibri: una novità uscita da poco e un classico della letteratura, oppure uno dei titoli che hanno appassionato di più gli ascoltatori negli ultimi anni. Vi siete mai chiesti che voce ha la nebbia? George Simenon, il più grande autore di gialli la fa quasi toccare, respirare nell'audiolibro letto da Giuseppe Battiston, uno dei più amati e venduti della serie Maigret. Donato Carrisi, invece, vi ci fa immergere, in un romanzo dal quale lui stesso ha tratto un un film di successo. Due approcci diversi, ma ugualmente affascinanti, con un uso sapiente delle voci.

Castle Wetterstein by Frank Wedekind Translated by Ian Johnston This play forms part of a tetralogy which focuses on one of Wedekind's obsessive themes: the destructive interplay between primal sexual urges and social convention. Each play revolves around a powerful young female character, who has the power to control and captivate men, but who in turn is destroyed by the exercise of that power. In Castle Wetterstein, that role is represented by Effie, the young daughter of a bourgeois widow, who is being courted by the man who killed her late husband in a duel. Later in the play Effie becomes, like Wedekinds most celebrated heroine, Lulu, a sacrificial victim on the altar of profane love. Cast: Rüdiger, Baron Wetterstein - Russell Gold Leonore von Gystrow - P J Morgan Effie and the Housemaid - Amanda Friday Meinrad Luckner and Chagnaral Tschamper of Atakama - Noel Badrian Van Zeeter (hotel manager) and Professor Dr. Scharlach - John Burlinson Duvoisin (police inspector) and Karl Salzmann - Ron Altman Matthais Taubert - David Stifel Waiter and Schigabet - Alan Weyman Heiri Wipf and Waldemar Uhlhorst - Andy Harrington Narrator - Denis Daly Audio edited by Denis Daly

Appealing the cast in federal court and unraveling the facts, Laura uncovers evidence that Eddie was framed by the police for murder - the brutal hanging of a troubled young woman in the remote upstate town of Eden. Realizing that the real "hangman of Eden" may still be at large, Laura also finds herself being stalked. Are the police out to stop her from exposing their frame-up? Is the real killer seeking to keep her from reopening the investigation? Teaming up with noted innocence investigator Charles Steel, she gets a lead on evidence that could clear her client and point to the real killer. With a new trial moving forward, Laura must find the truth and prevail in court, without becoming the next victim.

To love and be loved in return is a beautiful feeling. But what do you do when the object of your affection refuses to love and want you the same way you want them? Not because they don't feel the same but because in their eyes you don't quite measure up? Even after you've done everything in your power to prove your worth to this person, they continue to purposely withhold the love that you so desperately crave. Walking away may seem like the most logical and healthy route to take, but when it comes to that authentic, consuming, deep-down-in-your-soul type of love, doing so is easier said than done. Considered an unlikely pair, Marcus, the reformed dope boy, and Nikki, the pampered princess, have undeniable chemistry. Problems arise when only one of them is willing to be honest and acknowledge the obvious attraction. Because she doesn't feel that he fits into her world or the plan she has mapped out for her life, Nikki curves Marcus without hesitation from their first encounter. Unable to see past her fears, she doesn't realize that rejecting him just may cost her the man she was meant to spend her life with. With the street life in his rearview, Marcus is now a proud uncle and the owner of a thriving business. He's hoping to add the title of being the man in Nikki's life to the growing list of blessings in this new chapter, but she's not on board with that plan. Although he's fed up with trying to convince her that he is enough, does Marcus have it in him to throw in the towel for good? Ride shotgun with Marcus, Nikki, and a few other couples, as they navigate through this crazy, drama-filled game of life and love.

Once I was released from prison, I thought that all of the heartache was over. I was back with my family, and I assumed that the nightmare had come to an end. Little did I know, the nightmare had actually just begun. Everybody around me was keeping secrets that would send me right back to a dark place, a place way worse than the prison that I had just emerged from. This time of my life was supposed to be my "happily ever after the bullshit." King's empire was bringing in more money than he could count. I was about to get the wedding of my dreams. On the outside, things looked so perfect, and I was beyond happy. In fact, I was so happy that I didn't see the deceit that was happening right under my nose. They say that every friendship, every relationship, is bound to fall apart when you start keeping secrets. That couldn't be truer with King, Meech, Siren, Dolla, and Jada. They were all keeping secrets that would tear apart our family and our business, and I was too busy in my own immense happiness to even see it. But soon I would. Merely weeks after my release, I would find myself, once again, in a world that was turned upside down, and yet again, all of the blame would fall on my undying loyalty to my King.

Learn About the History of Nations in a Fraction of the Time It Takes to Read the Actual Book! Acemoglu's theory and explanation of the differences in global prosperity are as enlightening as they are entertaining. He manages to make the puzzling concept dead simple to understand because the book, rather than a lengthy lecture explaining the theory, is a series of examples supporting it. After the first chapter, you will fundamentally understand the concept and theory behind this book, and each subsequent chapter will support the theory in fascinating ways. Take the opening example for instance: comparing a city, Nogales, that was literally cut in half by the US-Mexico border. So many history books and experts like to chalk up the world's current state to fate, such as in differences in climate or geographical location. Yet here is a shining example of how none of those things matter. At one point, this was just one city, and now it has become two cities so different, you'd think their shared name and location were some sort of joke. Here Is a Preview of What You'll Learn: How today's wealthy countries run their governments differently from the rest of the world The reason why most theories about successful nations are wrong The successful nations of the past that failed
