She was content to spend her time developing the most flawless gem known to man: the pearl. Living with the world but not in it, Laura never sought excitement-or love. Then her solitude was disrupted by high powered businessman Nick Langg, who needed Laura to test his secret formula for rare black pearls. Soon Nick was more interested in winning Laura's heart than in the experiment's success. He wanted only to erase the scars of the past, to keep her safe. But someone suspected what Nick and Laura were up to-and would stop at nothing to destroy their dreams. She heard an odd sound ... like a hushed burst of wind in the distance, and her eyes blinked open. The breeze was blowing from the west-from the direction of her lab. Th~ smoke was coming from that same direction. She raced through the library, the hall, the kitchen. Outside, the steps tried to trip her, grass tried to catch under her bare feet. Something cut her right heel, and the old cottonwood and cypress blocked her view. As soon as she skidded past the trees she could feel the heat. Yellow flames were licking the white stone· building. The door to the lab was not only closed, but there was a long board braced against the knob. Smoke billowed in huge gray clouds. It was the board that riveted her attention, not because of why or how it had gotten there, but because Nick was trapped on the other side of that door ....

The Fortress of Solitude is the first great urban coming of age novel to appear in years., Vintage, 2004, xviii, 650 pp. 9 1/2 x 6 1/2. Foreword by John, Patrick, & Gregory Hemingway. Photo of Hemingway by Man Ray on rear dust jacket panel. "Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. This collection, The Short Stories, originally published in 1938, is definitive. Among these forty-nine short stories are Hemingway's earliest efforts, written when he was a young foreign correspondent in Paris, and such masterpieces as "Hills Like White Elephants," "The Killers," "The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber," and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro." Set in the varied landscapes of Spain, Africa, and the American Midwest, this collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style -- from the plain, bald language of his first story, "Up in Michigan," to the seamless prose and spare, eloquent pathos of "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" to the expansive solitude of the Big Two-Hearted River stories. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the twentieth century."

Charles Scribners Sons, 1987. Very Good/Not Applicable., Charles Scribners Sons, 1987, Bestselling author Sandra Brown is the master of the knife-edge thriller. Her latest and most powerful novel to date, Hello, Darkness, is the gripping story of a woman haunted by her past and caught in a nightmare that threatens to destroy her future. It's a brilliant, fast-paced tale, electric with sexual tension, by one of America's most popular authors of sophisticated suspense.For Paris Gibson, her popular late-night radio show is both an escape and her one real contact with the outside world.Since moving to Austin to ease the pain of past, tragic mistakes, she has led a life of virtual solitude, coming alive only when she hosts her show. To her loyal listeners, she is a wise and trusted friend who not only takes their music requests but listens to their problems and occasionally dispenses advice.Paris's world of isolation is brutally threatened, however, when one listener -- a man who identifies himself only as "Valentino" -- tells her that her on-air advice to the girl he loves has caused her to leave him and that now he intends to exact his revenge. First he plans to kill the girl, whom he has abducted -- which he says he will do in 72 hours -- then he will come after Paris.Joined by the Austin police department, Paris plunges into a race against time in an effort to find Valentino before he can carry out his threat to kill -- and to kill again. To her dismay, she finds that one of the people she must work with is crime psychologist Dean Malloy, a man with whom she shares a history that had a catastrophic effect on both their lives. His presence arouses old passions, forcing Paris to confront painful memories that she had come to Austin to forget.As the clock ticks down, and Valentino's threats come closer and closer to becoming a reality, Paris suddenly finds herself forced to deal with a killer who may not be a stranger at all.Tense and compelling right up to the chilling climax, Hello, Darkness is suspense at its very best, by the author USA Today has called "a masterful storyteller, carefully crafting tales that keep readers on the edge of their seats.", Simon & Schuster, Old Tappan, New Jersey, U.S.A.: Scribner. Hardcover. 0684144948 Aerobatics, parachuting, racing, hang gliding, soaring, ballooning-there is something for everyone in the world of sport flying. This book, written by experts, is an exciting and evocative introduction to that world. It is all here: the thrill of executing a perfect loop; that decisive moment when the jumpmaster slaps your shoulder and says,"Go!"; the joy of circling silently upward in a sailplane or of touring the earth in a hot-air balloon; the profound sense of accomplishment in building your own plane; the nostalgic appeal of antique and classic aircraft. The book is divided into six main parts: Daring, Speed, Escape, Solitude, Craft, and Nostalgia, with each heading meant to reflect the essential quality of the types of sport flying discussed in that section. The sum of these parts is a persuasive invitation even to the non-pilot to the world of sport aviation. 246 pages. . Fine. 1976. First Edition., Scribner, 1976
