Product Description"Barbara wood is an entertainer."-Washington Post World From highly acclaimed novelist Barbara Wood comes an exciting thriller teeming with adventure and suspense about two sisters caught in a deadly international game. It's been four years since Lydia Harris last spoke to her elder sister, Adele. When Adele telephones from Rome and interrupts Lydia's work as a nurse at the Santa Monica Emergency Hospital, she's more than a little surprised-and curious. Adele explains that she sent a parcel to Lydia, and after Lydia receives it, she must come to Rome at once. Disturbed by her sister's cryptic message, Lydia is further puzzled when the parcel arrives containing a beautiful Egyptian gaming piece in the form of a jackal. When Lydia's apartment is suddenly burglarized, she's astonished that the only thing stolen is the wrapping paper in which the jackal was mailed. Deeply concerned about her sister's fate, Lydia determines to track her down, flying first to Rome and then to Cairo. But the deeper she becomes involved in her search, the further she leaves behind the comfortable world of her hospital and the undeclared love of a handsome doctor. Drawn into a lethal battle of wits, Lydia confronts murder, mysterious strangers, and death threats. But in a final confrontation in the Valley of the Kings, Lydia just might face her worst nightmare. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

A stirring account of a great sage of the Jewish people, Akiba ben Joseph. The story is told by Rufus Teneius, a Roman tribune, who watched with divided feelings as his friend Akiba helped Simeon Bar Cocheba lead a revolt against Rome that almost brought the Empire of Hadrian to its knees. "Peopled with a host of legionaries, proconsuls, slaves, insurrectionists, martyrs, and saints, this novel of that age of struggle and bloodshed carries the reader past war to the whispers of eternity and compassion to come, as the Jews reaffirmed their deathless faith in the one God.". Hard Cover., Crown Publishers, 1966, NY: Alfred A. Knopf Inc, 2002. First Edition . Hardcover. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket/Fine. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Dust Jacket Design By Carol Devine Carson; Dust Jacket Photograph By Joseph Sudek, 'Memories: The Coming of Evening'; Book Design By Soonyoung Kwon. In these poems, we come to know a different side of the acclaimed novelist Susan Minot. We find her awake in the middle of the night, contemplating love and heartbreak in all their exhilarating and anguished specifics. With astonishing openness, in language both passionate and enchanting, she offers us an intimate map of a troubled and far-flung heart: "Can you believe I thought that?" she asks, "That we would always go/roaming brave and dangerous/on wild unlit roads?" At once witty and tender, with Dorothy Parker-like turns of the knife and memorable partings from lovers in New York, London, Rome and beyond, these poems capture a restless movement through loves and locales, and charm us at every turn with their forthrightness." - front dj flap. "Minot's accomplished fiction, including 'Evening' (1998) and 'Rapture', is undeniably poetic, so it's not surprising to learn that she writes poetry as well. The connection to her fiction is also obvious in her poetry's subject matter and mood: these are poems of sexual passion and emotional turmoil. Tied vividly to place-- Massachusetts, New York, Italy--these are laments and regrets in the stunned aftermath of erotic encounters that prove to be loveless for him, unforgettable for her. As in her fiction, Minot's power is generated by the tension between the spareness of her style and the wildness of the feelings she seeks to restrain rather than express. What Minot can't suppress, nor should she, is her storytelling impulse, because the best of her poems are hauntingly anecdotal. Small in scope, albeit graced by alluring wit, refined brooding, and tough sexiness, these works are actually verse not poetry. This won't deflect Minot's fans, and, in fact, her poems offer an enticing introduction to contemporary poetry for curious but hesitant readers." - Donna Seaman, Booklist. xii, 116pp. Beige faux half-cloth, dark green paper boards, gilt spine lettering, cream endpapers.
