Good news: Isaac Sidel ist wieder da! Seit 1974 steigt der Cop aus der Bronx umso höher, je krimineller und mörderischer er agiert und je besser er als Mensch ist. Er ist inzwischen Vizepräsident der Vereinigten Staaten und muss dennoch New York City vor dem Zugriff gieriger Politicos beschützen: mit Hilfe von Verbindungen, die tief in die Geschichte der jüdischen Mafia zurückreichen - und auch wenn er dazu raus muss aus dem Big Apple und dem mythischen Hotel Ansonia. Ausgerechnet nach Texas. Jerome Charyn ´´ist einer unserer wagemutigsten und interessantesten Schriftsteller´´, weiß die New York Times schon lange. In seinem breiten uvre nehmen die Sidel-Romane einen wichtigen Platz ein und gehören zu den Großereignissen der zeitgenössischen Literatur. Sie sind harte Kriminalliteratur, urbane Mythomanien, metropole Visionen, realistische Alpträume und bewusstseinsverändernde Literatur. ´´Unter dem Auge Gottes´´ wurde ausgezeichnet mit dem Deutschen Krimi Preis (International) und ist auf der KrimiZEIT-Jahresbestenliste 2013 vertreten.
A classic work of American theatre, based on the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, which pitted Clarence Darrow against William Jennings Bryan in defense of a schoolteacher accused of teaching the theory of evolution The accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was the freedom of every American. One of the most moving and meaningful plays of our generation. Praise for Inherit the Wind ´´A tidal wave of a drama.´´-New York World-Telegram And Sun ´´Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee were classic Broadway scribes who knew how to crank out serious plays for thinking Americans. . . . Inherit the Wind is a perpetually prescient courtroom battle over the legality of teaching evolution. . . . We´re still arguing this case-all the way to the White House.´´-Chicago Tribune ´´Powerful . . . a crackling good courtroom play . . . [that] provides two of the juiciest roles in American theater.´´-Copley News Service ´´[This] historical drama . . . deserves respect.´´-The Columbus Dispatch
When DI Terry Connor turns up on David Hunter´s doorstep, it´s an unwelcome reminder of the past in more ways than one. The two used to be friends before Connor´s behaviour caused a bitter rift. And the news the policeman brings is even less welcome: the psychotic rapist and murderer Jerome Monk has escaped from high security prison. Monk´s is a name all too familiar to Hunter. Eight years before he´d part of an ill-fated Body Recovery team assembled to try and find the graves of Monk´s teenage victims on the bleak expanse of Dartmoor. Only one of the missing girls´ bodies was ever found, and Monk´s own controversial involvement in the search led to more failure and a violent denouement. And now Monk is on the loose - and seems to be targeting anyone involved with the original search. Then Hunter receives a mysterious appeal for help from Sophie Keller, a young woman who also worked on the operation, he suddenly finds that the past is far from dead and buried. Neither the events unfolding now, nor those from all those years ago, are quite as they seem. And as the maniac´s bloody trail edges ever closer, Hunter is forced to question who he can really trust. Especially when his own life depends on it...

Le livre audio plus compréhensible de la technologie lequel change le monde ! ´´Deuxième révolution numérique´´, ´´ubérisation ultime´´, ´´machine à confiance´´... la blockchain laisse présager une révolution des usages comparable à celle portée par l´Internet dans les années 90. La promesse de la blockchain est en effet majeure : des transactions instantanées à des coûts minimes et sans organe central de contrôle. Cette technologie a le potentiel de totalement changer les règles du jeu dans de nombreux secteurs économiques, à commencer par le système bancaire. Comment se préparer ? Laurent Leloup décrypte de façon très pédagogique le fonctionnement d´une blockchain, les expériences en cours, les perspectives. Surtout, il pointe les questions à se poser et aide à diagnostiquer les opportunités liées à la blockchain dans chaque secteur. Au-delà des implications économiques, c´est une profonde transformation sociétale qui s´annonce. Car la blockchain est avant tout une révolution de la confiance, portée non plus par un tiers de confiance - banquier, notaire, etc. -, mais par un système décentralisé et partagé. Un nouveau monde se profile. Laurent Leloup a fondé en 2006 Finyear Group, qui publie les quotidiens Finyear & Blockchain Daily News et produit de nombreux événements. En 2016, il a cofondé Blockness, une startup centrée blockchain, France Blocktech, l´association de l´écosystème blockchain français, et Blockchain Valley (campus, centre de formation, incubateur). >> Ce livre audio en version intégrale vous est proposé en exclusivité par Audible et est uniquement disponible en téléchargement. 1.

Survive the infection! Survive the infected. Book 1: A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried and frightened. But Zed Zane is oblivious. He needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride, and heads to his mom´s house for a lunch of begging, again. But something is wrong. There´s blood in the foyer. His mother´s corpse is on the living room floor. Zed´s stepdad Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan´s yellow teeth tear at Zed´s arm, but he grabs a knife and stabs Dan 37 times, or so the police later say. With infection burning in his blood, Zed is arrested for murder but the world is falling apart, and he soon finds himself back on the street, fighting for his life among the infected who would kill him and the normal people, who fear him. Book 2: Slow Burn: Infected picks up the story of Zed, Murphy, and Jerome where Slow Burn: Zero Day ended. All three have been infected but have not succumbed to the most pernicious symptoms of the virus. Nevertheless, their band of fearful survivors, have ostracized them. Back on the street, with weapons to defend themselves but little food in their packs, they embark on a search for Murphy´s family while following a rumor of safe haven in the form of a doomsday bunker in east Austin. But the world is more hazardous than they know. They expect violence from the voracious infected, but they have harsh lessons to learn about the uninfected. And humans to support the infrastructure of modern civilization, they find that danger comes in many forms. Book 3: Zed is saying goodbye to one friend and pressing forward. 1. Language: English.

From 1941 to 1945 the skies over the Pacific Ocean afforded the broadest arena for battle and the fiercest action of air combat during World War II. It was in the air above the Pacific that America´s involvement in the war began. It was in these skies that air power launched from carriers became a new form of engagement and where the war ultimately ended with kamikaze attacks and with atomic bombs dropped over Japan. Throughout the conflict American flyers felt a compelling call to supplement the official news and military reports. In vivid accounts written soon after combat and in reflective memoirs recorded in the years after peace came, both pilots and crew members detailed their stories of the action that occurred in the embattled skies. Their first-person testimonies describe a style of warfare invented at the moment of need and at a time when the outcome was anything but certain. Gathering more than a hundred personal narratives from Americans and from Japanese, Pacific Skies recounts a history of air combat in the Pacific theater. Together their stories express fierce individualism and resourcefulness and convey the vast panorama of war that included the skies over Pearl Harbor, Wake, and Guadalcanal and missions from Saipan and Tinian. As Pacific Skies recounts the perilous lives of pilots in their own words, Jerome Klinkowitz weaves the individual stories into a gripping historical narrative that exposes the shades of truth and fiction that can become blurred over time. A book about experiencing and remembering, Pacific Skies also is a story of unique perspectives on the war. Jerome Klinkowitz, a professor of English at the University of Northern Iowa, is the author of forty books, including such World War II titles as Their Finest Hours, Yanks over Europe, and With Tigers over China.The book is published by the University Press of Mississippi. 1.
