February 1916 saw the opening stages of one of the most fearful battles of the World War I, at Verdun, between France and Germany. The German High Command believed in a strategy of attrition and felt that Germany could, by choosing a point of attack which the French felt they would have to defend at all costs, bleed France to death. They chose Verdun, a small fortress that had been of strategic importance to France for hundreds of years. Six months late, after 400,000 French lay dead and wounded, and as many German, the assault was abandoned and in October the French recaptured the forts and territory they had lost earlier. Jules Romain's novel "Verdun", two of the volumes of his huge "Men of Good Will", contains fictional characters but is entirely based on fact. It makes the horrors of the Great War live in an intense way. Divided into two sectioins, "The Prelude" and "The Battle", its huge canvas embraces the front itself and the horrors of the artillery bombardments and the "over the top" offensives; the General Staffs and their headquarters, their strategic "vision" and the intrigues in the upper military echelons. Jules Romains (1885-1972) was founder of the "unanimiste" school of writing that sought universal brotherhood through group consciousness and which expressed a diminution of individual self in face of a merged, communal identity. Other members of the group also wrote huge multi-volume novels, called "romans fleuves", river novels, that sought to embrace every aspect of life. Romains published Verdun in 1938 and it was published in English the year after. 446 pp., Mayflower, 1973, Hodder & Stoughton Paperback. 2005. Paperback. Good.

"In an unnamed country, fighting an unnamed war, Yoshar the soldier sits overlooking a river. An inexperienced officer wanders into the enemy's line of vision. Yoshar, a veteran of two years of battle, an uncomplicated primitive indifferent to the fortunes of war, a man motivated only by self interest and self preservation, fails to warn the officer. The officer is shot and killed. Because Yoshar could have prevented the death, he is given a suicidal mission: he is to cross the river and scout behind the enemy's line. Narrowly escaping death on the crossing and barely avoiding enemy patrols, he finally stumbles on a farmhouse. Inside is a girl. Yoshar's reaction is instinctive to him. He rapes her. But that act starts events and emotions that, even days before, Yoshar would not have considered or felt..." Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Standard Weight.

In the sleepy town of East End, New York, former homicide cop Justin Westwood is trying to escape the tragedy of his past by consuming scotch and writing traffic tickets for the local police department. The murder of a young reporter (disguised as an accident) , however, catapults him out of his stasis and into a complicated investigation. A terrified witness tells of a blond killer, whom readers first met in the book's opening pages murdering another young woman. As Justin investigates, it seems that the police and the FBI are always one step ahead of him, and that folks with any connection to the case start turning up dead. Signs point to a sinister fountain-of-youth project run by a mysterious, all-powerful cabal, which the reporter had accidentally uncovered. If Westwood penetrates the secrets of the Aphrodite program, he's sure to be their next victim. A smalltown cop does battle with a great conspiracy: the plot may sound conventional, even hackneyed, but Andrews sustains white-hot tension throughout, bolstered by enough surprises and body blows to satisfy even a hardened mystery/conspiracy buff. The suspense flags slightly at midpoint, but elsewhere the pace is fast, the dialogue sharp, the characters skillfully drawn and the familiar, heady whodunit action cleverly handled. © Reed. All rights reserved. Synopsis: It looked for all the world like a terrible, tragic accident. Susanna Morgan had gotten up in the middle of the night, tripped, fallen, and broken her neck. Yet when detective Justin Westwood inspects the victim's apartment, he can't help noticing that the details don't quite add up. The glass on the bedside table is knocked over but there are no cuts on her body. The scrape on her knee looks suspiciously fresh. And then a terrified witness comes forward, confirming his worst fear. \n\nThis is no accident. This is murder. \n\nJustin Westwood moved to East End Harbor to escape a dark, disturbing past, and to lead a quiet life. He had retreated from reality by taking a menial post with a small-town Long Island police department, drowning his troubles in mindless traffic duty and lots of booze. Now his dormant professionalism is awakened after Susanna's brutal murder. This is just the kind of reality check that Justin needs, and he will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of this madness - to find the meaning of the mysterious "Aphrodite" - and maybe save himself in the process. \n\nThe New York Times\n… a smart, cynical thriller … Although the noble Justin begins life as a stock character, he's got a good mind -- keen enough to work out this Chinese puzzle of a plot and twisted enough to accept the macabre conspiracy theory on which it's built. — Marilyn Stasio ., Warner Vision, 2004, Warner Vision. 1999. Paperback. Very Good. This is not a horror thriller for the cozy lover. Not that playwright and H awaiian Public Radio personality Gardner McKay's Toyer is gory, but this de but novel pulls some terrifying strings. Toyer is a "serial-lunatic" in Los Angeles who doesn't kill or rape his beautiful female victims. Instead, he "toys" with them psychologically and uses a surgical instrument to place t hem in a coma. Neurologist Maude Garance is Toyer's opposite. She has treat ed his victims and considers herself in a personal battle against his sadis m. Because Toyer is not technically a killer, the police department and the district attorney could only charge him with mayhem--hardly a crime worth investigating. So, L.A. Herald reporter Sara Smith, who has helped expand h er paper's readership by covering the city's latest demon, enlists Garance to draw Toyer out. Their weapon is the Herald's op-ed page, and they inevit ably become targets of Toyer as they wage their war of words with him. In a story that moves between a critical commentary on the uses and abuses of t he media and a driving (sometimes melodramatic) suspense narrative, Toyer i s sure to bring McKay's prose talents to a broader audience., Warner Vision, 1999, Palgrave Macmillan, 2006-04-04.

William Morrow 2008 A D V A N C E R E A D E R' S Edition New/ SOFTCOVER. Prerelease version. Product Description One of the nation's most influential political strategists provides a daring manifesto and vision for conservatives. The modern Republican party is a coalition of groups and tendencies created during the political life of Ronald Reagan, based on principle rather than region and history. The new political movement that now controls much of the Republican party is one of Americans who simply wish to be left alone by the government. They are not asking the government for others' money, time, or attention. Rather, they want to beto own a gun, homeschool their children, pray, invest their money, and control their own destiny. They are the Leave Us Alone coalition, at the heart of the center-right, and Grover Norquist argues that it will grow in power and size during the next generation. Directly opposed to this coalition is the descriptively titled Takings Coalition, which is at the heart of the tax-and-spend left, and they will battle for control of America's future over the next fifty years. It is increasingly important to better understand these coalitions than it is the Republican or Democratic parties themselves. In a compelling and powerful narrative, Norquist describes the two competing coalitions in American politics, how they are organized, what makes them stronger or weaker. What each can achieve and what they cannot do. And how you may fit into the contest as well as gain a deeper understanding of American politics-where it's been, where it is and particularly where it will go-through a series of eye-opening economic, demographic, and political trends that will shape these coalitions in the years to come. Required reading for any conservative who wants a deeper understanding of politics in America today, Leave Us Alone shows the order of battle for the next generation. About the Author Grover Norquist is president of the taxpayer advocacy group Americans for Tax Reform, which was founded in 1985 at President Reagan's request. He chairs the "Wednesday Meeting," a weekly gathering of more than 120 elected officials and political activists, and he serves on the board of directors for both the American Conservative Union and the National Rifle Association. Voted one of the fifty most powerful people in Washington, D.C., by GQ magazine in 2007, Norquist, his wife, Samah, and their daughter, Grace, live in Washington, D.C..

Ticknor & Fields 1988 First Edition NL with 1 Fine/Fine DJ Editorial Reviews From Fans of adventure yarns may relish this blend of fantasy and historical fiction if they take to the author's baroque, tinted prose and lush imagination.

Jaki falls for Lucinda, the headstrong daughter of Pym's arch-rival, Captain William Quarles. Crammed with intrigue, pirates' battles, curses and visions, this seafaring saga takes Lucinda and Jaki from the South Seas to India to the New World. Various plot strands interweavethe encroachment of colonialism on the world of spirits, Jaki's hard-won self-acceptance after abandoning the role of European gentleman, the clash of duty versus romance as Lucinda defies her father.

Attanasio's previous novels include Radix , a Nebula Award nominee, and Arc of the Dream. 1988 Seventeenth-century adventure awaits readers in Attanasio's ( Radix ) novel. Jaki Gefjon is a half-breed, raised among headhunters of Borneo and trained as a "soul catcher" (medicine man).
