Shadow of the Sun Penguin
'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning
A Night for Screaming / Any Woman He Wanted STARK HOUSE PR
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
A NIGHT FOR SCREAMING Mitch Walker is on the run. Just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but his pursuer, Fred Palmer, has some very effective ways of getting a confession. So Walker hops a train and ends up in a small town in Kansas, where he hires on at a huge farm owned by Barton M. Cassel. It looks like a good place to hide out from Palmer and the local cops, but Walker soon finds himself torn between the scheming arrogance of his new employer, and the unsubtle advances of Cassel's willing wife, Eve. Caught between their jealous battle, Walker quickly discovers that he was better off when he was on the run-because one way or the other, nobody leaves the farm. ANY WOMAN HE WANTED Mike Ballard works homicide, busted down from lieutenant four years ago for accepting bribes. He had ripped things wide open then, turning on the fat cats whom he had been protecting. But nothing had really changed. Guys were still working the rackets, and shop owners were still getting killed if they didn't pay. DA Tom Flynn tries to enlist Ballard in his own fight against corruption--and dies mysteriously in a car accident the next day. And then there's Lupe, pregnant by the son of one of the most influential men in town, who wants Ballard's help and isn't shy about how she goes about asking. And Naomi, who knows just what she wants. There's only so much a man can take. But when they push him too far, Ballard only has one recourse-cop or not, he comes out swinging.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Don't miss Janet Evanovich's short story "Pros and Cons" in the back of the book. Catch a professional assassin: top priority. Find a failure-to-appear and collect big bucks: top score. How she'll pull it all off: top secret. Trenton, New Jersey's favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he's out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city's hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer's whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn't want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti's bookkeeper and knows all his boss's dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti's list of people to put six feet under. To top things off, Ranger-resident security expert and Stephanie's greatest temptation-has been the target of an assassination plot. He's dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he'll have to enlist Stephanie's help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past. Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day's work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur's wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli's Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what's number one on the list-but that's top secret. Praise for Top Secret Twenty-One "The combination of biting dialogue, outrageous characters and intense story lines are consistent throughout. And [Janet Evanovich] novels are the true definition of a guilty pleasure."-Associated Press "Evanovich doesn't disappoint. . . . [She] weaves setting, family, romance and crime to pull the plot of Top Secret Twenty-One forward."-Bookreporter
Taking Fire Casemate
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
American military special operations forces - Rangers, SEALs, and others - have become a well-recognized and highly respected part of our popular culture. But whom do these elite warriors look to in their times of greatest need: when wounded on the battlefield, cut off deep behind enemy lines, or adrift in the expanse of the world's oceans? They look skyward, hoping to catch a glimpse of their own personal guardian angel: a U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper (PJ) who lives, and sometimes dies, by the motto that others may live. Taking Fire provides an up-close look into the heroism and mystique of this little known segment of the Air Force Special Tactics community by focusing on one of the most dramatic rescues of the Vietnam War. It was June 1972 and Capt. Lynn Aikman is returning from a bombing mission over North Vietnam when his F-4 Phantom is jumped by an enemy MiG and shot down. He and his backseater Tom Hanton eject from their crippled aircraft, but Hanton lands near a village and is quickly captured by local militia. Badly injured during the ejection, Aikman lands some distance from the village, and there is a chance that he can be recovered if American rescuers can reach him before the enemy does. Now on the ground and drifting in and out of consciousness, Captain Aikman looks up and suddenly sees his guardian angel in the form of USAF Pararescue Jumper Chuck McGrath. As Sergeant McGrath is preparing to hook the downed pilot to a hoist line, he sees it fall to the ground. Hostile fire on the hovering Jolly Green Giant rescue helicopter has damaged the hoist mechanism causing the operator to cut the line. While circling A-1 Skyraiders strafe the militia to keep them away from Aikman and McGrath, the helicopter crew races to come up with a plan. It's getting dark, and they'll only have one chance. Taking Fire is an exciting, highly dramatic story of life and death over North Vietnam. Much more than a chronicle the events of 27 June 1972, the book gives the reader an up-close look at the little known world of the U.S. Air Force's elite aerial rescue force.
