Аннотация

Chief of Police Holly Barker-the heroine introduced in the New York Times bestselling Orchid Beach-returns with her trusty Doberman, Daisy, to track an unusual band of thieves in this second thriller in Stuart Woods's newest and most captivating series. "Holly Barker-tough and tight-lipped-is fun to watch as she maneuvers among city politicians and wary colleagues, one of whom may be a murderer." (Entertainment Weekly review of Orchid Beach) Holly is on her way to be married to Jackson Oxenhandler, her steady beau, when her wedding day is shattered by a serious crime that takes place very close to home. A highly disciplined team of men hit a bank in Orchid Beach, Florida, and the waves from this robbery nearly capsize Holly's life. She vows to find these men-who have been careful enough to leave nothing behind except the corpse of a bank customer-and quickly, she discovers evidence that leads her into the midst of what appears to be a politically motivated clan. Her father, Ham, a retired army chief master sergeant, is her ticket into this strange world, and what Ham inds there stuns both Holly and her FBI contact, Harry Crisp. Holly and Ham find themselves sucked into a whirlpool of crazed criminality and, in the end, the FBI can do little to help them. This time, Holly, Ham, and Daisy are on their own, and they wouldn't have it any other way.

Аннотация

Nevil Shute's "On The Beach" is a classic for good reason. Shute takes the most horrific event one can imagine—a worldwide nuclear event—and then turns the microscope on it, focusing in on just a few ordinary people who must wait for death as it drifts over to their hemisphere. We see military personnel, housewives, businessmen, and more. They come alive because they are just like you and me and the people next door. Shute's very great accomplishment here is to examine how each of the characters deals with their certain death. Everyone knows they'll die eventually; these characters have the difficulty of knowing that death will arrive soon, and that it will be slow and agonizing. What do they do? Each reacts differently and the humanity and humility with which some of the characters make their choices is startlingly powerful. Especially in a time when the world seems so uncertain, so cruel, this is an important book to read—or re-read if you picked it up years ago. Prepare yourself for a powerfully moving experience. "THE MOST IMPORTANT AND DRAMATIC NOVEL OF THE ATOMIC AGE" —WASHINGTON POST AND TIMES HERALD THE GREAT INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER — OVER 3,000,000 COPIES SOLD! A WORLD WAITING TO DIE The radioactive winds had not yet hit Australia. There, survivors of the accidental nuclear war, men and women destined to be the last human beings on earth, prepared for extinction. Some found solace in religion, others in alcohol and frenzied sex, and hundreds stood waiting for their government ration of cyanide pills, hoping they would not have to use them—knowing they would. NEVIL SHUTE'S MAGNIFICENT AND MOVING BESTSELLER— "What a terrific Shute this is against the supreme folly of our times. As a piece of writing it is terrific. As a world warning it is more terrifying than anything yet put into print: It compels staying until the dreadful finish." —Brig. General S.L.A. Marshall

Аннотация

Book 1 in the Oath series Sharon took an oath at the idealistic age of eighteen to mate with an unknown alien from another planet, never expecting the alien to actually show up and invoke it eleven years later. A librarian with a love for the orderly and ordinary, she prefers a calm, quiet existence. Surprises are life's way of indicating you did not plan well enough. Adventures are for people with more guts than sense. And sex, well, it's okay, but nothing to get too worked up over. Liken is a warrior cop from Shimeria. He is six feet seven inches of walking, talking sex personified. Having been inside Sharon's head he knows her deepest fantasies, and knows that she is the perfect mate for him. But first he has to seduce her…

Аннотация

Olvidado rey Gudú narra el nacimiento y expansión del Reino de Olar, en una historia donde se habla de la pérdida de la inocencia, la atracción y el miedo hacia lo desconocido, el placer de la conquista, el amor, el dolor, la memoria, y sobre todo, el olvido. El universo fantástico de Matute nos introduce en una historia larguísima sobre traiciones, hijos ilegítimos, desamores y pasiones desconocidas. Un rey incapaz de amar es el centro de esta saga dramática, con pocas concesiones a la ternura o la esperanza. He ahí la mayor baza de la novela, la forma en que retrata la educación y la falta de afecto hacia los hijos. Un relato cruel con parricidios, asesinatos y huidas, todo entremezclado en una narración densa a la vez que fácil de seguir, hasta el obligado e inexorable final.

Аннотация

Otra faz en la narrativa de Gabriel García Márquez. Casi todas las obras de este gran autor se caracterizan por la presencia simultánea de ámbitos aparentemente alejados entre sí. -Además de lo onírico y de la rareza individual- escribe Mario Vargas Llosa a propósito de García Márquez- en este mundo en que lo social, lo político y otros niveles objetivos (como el sexo) parecen arrolladores, tienen cabida hechos y situaciones que por su carácter insólito y pintoresco contrastan con los hechos opresivos, obvios y monótonos que constituye en la vida cotidiana… y sugieren la existencia de "otra" realidad, menos previsible, en la que reinan la fantasía, la extravagancia, cierto tipo de humor. "En ojos de perro azul" el buceo de García Márquez en esa "otra" realidad es hondo y vertiginoso. Ya no se trata de revelarnos un aspecto de realidad placentero y risueño. García Márquez nos enfrenta con esa presencia inevitable que es la muerte, descubriéndola como una parte gemela de nuestro vivir. la muerte vislumbrada en los sueños y luego conocida como experiencia total del alma y del cuerpo la muerte como una constante inminencia que nos revela hasta qué punto nuestro propio ser está formado por aspectos distintos y nunca imaginados.
