What´s a good mystery story without a beautiful blonde to set things in motion? When the femme sharing a bench with Mallory in the Port City, Iowa, bus station is accosted by a scar-faced, one-eyed thug, the aspiring writer stops minding his own business and leaps into the fray with nothing but his fists and a well-aimed Pepsi bottle. Once the dust clears, the battered brute flees, and the damsel is saved, Mallory figures that´s the end of it. But when the pretty stranger suddenly drops back into his life - after violently losing hers - the real trouble is only just beginning. It´s no surprise that Sheriff Brennan wants to quickly close the case, since it threatens to open a can of worms involving political secrets and powerful people. But the harder Brennan tries to declare the death an accident, the louder Mallory screams bloody murder. It´s not enough to wake the dead...but it may just bring a killer to his doorstep. ungekürzt.

When Kathleen meets Joyce, each woman has come to a turning point in her life. Kathleen, whose sister died of breast cancer 15 years earlier, has just been diagnosed herself and finds her world abruptly thrown into terrifying turmoil. Joyce, increasingly distant from her awkward, adolescent daughter, is taking stock of her marriage and family, and struggling to get to grips with a burgeoning career as a novelist. Neither realizes that their chance meeting will result in a life-altering friendship. A mutual appreciation of books initially brings the women together, and they rapidly fall into friendship, taking long walks along Good Harbor beach and talking about their lives. Piece by piece, they begin to share their personal histories and acknowledge how much they can learn from each other. But long-hidden secrets are often difficult to reveal and only after some painful soul-searching do they each come to terms with the fact that sharing those startling secrets can help them confront their emotional scars. Good Harbor is a rich and moving novel about the tragedy of loss, the insidious nature of family secrets and, ultimately, the redemptive power of friendship. Language: English.

Everyone´s got secrets. Some are just harder to hide. With his father´s Ponzi scheme assets frozen, Tom Worthington believes finishing college is impossible unless he can pay his own way. After months of sleeping in his car and gypsy cabbing for cash, he´s ready to do just that. But his new older-student housing comes with an unapologetically gay roommate. Tom doesn´t ask why Reese Anders has been separated from the rest of the student population. He´s just happy to be sleeping in a bed. Reese isn´t about to share his brutal story with his gruff new roommate. You´ve seen one homophobic jock, you´ve seen ´em all. He plans to drag every twink on campus into his bed until Tom moves out. But soon it becomes clear Tom isn´t budging. Tom isn´t going to let some late-night sex noise scare him off, especially when it´s turning him on. But he doesn´t want any drama either. He´ll keep his hands, if not his eyes, to himself. Boundaries have a way of blurring when you start sharing truths, though. And if Tom and Reese cross too many lines, they may need to find out just how far they can bend before they break. Warning: This book contains cranky roommates who vacillate between lashing out and licking, some male-male voyeurism, emotional baggage that neither guy wants to unpack, and the definitive proof that sound carries in college housing. ungekürzt.

Joyce and Marshall Harriman are in the midst of a contentious divorce, but still sharing a cramped, over-mortgaged Brooklyn apartment with their two children. On the morning of September 11, Joyce departs for Newark to catch a flight to San Francisco, and Marshall, after dropping the kids at daycare, heads for his office in the World Trade Center. She misses her flight and he´s late for work, but on that grim day, in a devastated city, among millions seized by fear and grief, each thinks the other is dead, and each is secretly, shamefully, gloriously happy. As their bitter divorce is further complicated by anthrax scares, suicide bombs, foreign wars, and the stock-market collapse, they suffer, in ways unexpectedly personal and increasingly ludicrous, the many strange ravages of our time. In this astonishing black comedy, Kalfus suggests how our nation´s public calamities have encroached upon our most private illusions. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: James Boles.

Many hiphoppas labour to sustain Hiphop Kulture in their communities far from the big stages, world tours, and hit singles enjoyed by a shockingly few American hiphoppas. The creative labour of these few mega stars is calculated in billions of dollars. But for most hiphoppas, their creative labour may never get expressed in economic terms. Instead it is expressed in social capital, the production of collective and individual subjectivities, the bonds of love that build and hold communities together, and the healing of broken hearts, broken homes, and broken neighborhoods in broken cities. Hiphop Kulture is NOT a music genre, it is MUCH more, and exploring how the sharing of aesthetic resources builds community, and how situated learning plays a necessary role in cultural sustainability draws out questions that may lead to a model of community located cultural education, and a starting point for a critical pedagogy of music. I aint going to front, academics talking about hiphop scares me and often pisses me off. Im protective about this culture like its my own baby because its meant so much to me and my close friends. In my less angry moments I do appreciate the fact that this culture still has so much to give to the rest of the world and that the next level is what we give back. Well, we need allies in this complex world to move things forward. As Ive gotten to know Michael I consider him such an Ally and that his intent is firmly squared in empowering cats in the front lines. I also really dig the fact that he is committed to helping document the histories of those who laid the groundwork in the Edmonton scene. This is the respectful place to start. I look forward to bearing witness to Grass roots Hiphop reclaiming its voice and being at the forefront with academics supporting their community efforts. - Stephen Buddha Leafloor, Founder of the Canadian Floor Masters, Founder of Blueprintforlife.ca, Ashoka Fellow, Social Worker and an aging bboy! Dr. Michael B. MacDonalds research into Hip Hops pedagogical ingenuity have not only led us to the grassroots of Hip Hops rich and vibrant global culture, but to the very Ethos of Hiphop. With bold examination, this exciting research stands at the forefront of contemporary post colonial Hiphop literature. - Andre Hamilton aka Dre Pharoh, Executive Director Cipher5 Hiphop Academy, Temple of HipHop Canada
Number one in a new epic fantasy series by 28-time New York Times and international best seller David Weber, set within his Bahzell Bahnakson/War God universe. A swordsman who has been robbed of his past must confront an evil wizard, with a world at stake. Know thyself. It´s always good to know who you are, but sometimes that´s a little difficult. Kenhodan has no last name because he has no past...or not one he remembers, anyway. What he does have are a lot of scars and a lot of skills - some exhilarating and some terrifying - and a purpose. Now, if he only knew where he´d gotten them and what their purpose was.... Wencit of Rm, the most powerful wizard in the world, knows the answers to Kenhodan´s questions, but he can´t or won´t share them with him, except to inform him that he´s a critical part of Wencit´s millennium-long battle to protect Norfressa from conquest by dark sorcery. Bahzell Bahnakson, champion of Tomank, doesn´t know those answers, and the War God isn´t sharing them with him, except to inform Bahzell that the final confrontation with the Dark Lords of fallen Kontovar is about to begin, and that, somehow, Kenhodan is one of the keys to its final outcome. Wulfra of Torfo doesn´t know those answers, either, but she does know Wencit of Rm is her implacable foe and that, somehow, Kenhodan is one of the weapons he intends to use against her...assuming she can´t kill both of them first. But, in the far northern port city of Belhadan, an 11-year-old girl with a heart of harp music knows the answers to all of Kenhodan´s questions...and dares not share them with anyone, even the ancient wild wizard who loves her more dearly than life itself. It´s not easy to face the future when you can´t even remember your own past, but if saving an entire world from evil sorcerers, demons, devils, and dark gods was easy, anyone could do it. ungekürzt.

He needed a place to hide. She needed a friend. They never expected to fall in love. After a car accident - an event he considers a prank gone bad - jaded pop star Hunter Kennedy is forced to hide out with his aunt in small-town Colorado. He´s supposed to rest, heal his scars, and attend high school in disguise until the press dies down. But he only wants to get back to work. Worse, the girl who´s been assigned to make him over into a geek is a major geek herself. Vere Roth is a chattering pixie - a blushing tornado and a complete social disaster. He´s never met a girl who´s never been kissed, believes in romance, and thinks Hunter´s a ´´nice´´ guy. Funny thing is...Hunter is nice around Vere because she´s his first real friend. He also can´t seem to stop sharing his secrets or keep her out of his heart. Knowing he´d never deserve a girl as sweet as Vere, he resigns himself to the friend zone and helps his new bestie with her own makeover. She tortures him daily for guy advice on how to snag her lifelong crush: a guy Hunter thinks is totally wrong for Vere. And sadly he´s taken note of Vere´s stunning transformation. When Vere asks her best friend for some kissing advice, Hunter can´t resist. And that´s when things get out of control. Anne Eliot is an Amazon top 100 best-selling young adult author.
