There was only one man who fought both Rocky Marciano and Muhammad Ali. There was only one man who recorded 141 professional Knock-Outs. There was only one man who trained both a young Ali and heavyweight champion George Forman. There was only one Archie Moore. With a seven-decade boxing career, including 27 years as a prize fighter, Moore´s vast career and exploits are finally chronicled in The Ageless Warrior. Author Mike Fitzgerald spent months with Moore before the boxer´s death in an effort to capture the full life story of one of the 20th Century´s most colorful and accomplished athletes. And what a story it was. Moore´s opponent list reads like a ´´who´s who´´ of boxing; he fought nine world champions and seven Hall-of-Famers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Telles.

Jerin is a mental freak-a man capable of successfully playing a dozen simultaneous chess games against first-rate players while he himself is out of sight of any of the boards. It is while thus engaged that he is killed. A millionaire-his opponent in more realms than chess-is accused, and Nero Wolfe is given what appears to be the most hopeless case he and Archie Goodwin have ever tackled. You need to know nothing about chess to follow this tale, but some understanding of beautiful mothers and daughters will help. ´´It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.´´-The New York Times Book Review A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America´s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained-and puzzled-millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.
Now a TV series starring Leven Rambin, Chris Noth, and Danny Pino, premiering on February 27th on WGN America! From the critically acclaimed author of the Archie Sheridan and Gretchen Lowell series, an ´´utterly exhilarating and emotionally rich” thriller that will have ´´your heart in your throat” (Megan Abbott, best-selling author of Dare Me). Twenty-one-year-old Kick Lannigan is a survivor. She can pick any lock, fire any weapon, throw any knife, and aim a punch at her opponent’s trachea. And when the enigmatic John Bishop shows up asking her to help him rescue missing kids, Kick has every reason to be wary. He appears to have access to limitless money, high-level contacts, and details of Kick’s background long kept sealed by the court. Yet everything he tells her about himself seems to be a lie. Headstrong by nature, suspicious by circumstance, and a smart-ass by self-determination, Kick can’t help but see the writing on the wall: together, she and Bishop could make an unstoppable team, willing to do whatever it takes to see justice served…if they don’t kill each other first. For Kick, whose interest in child abduction is deeply personal, it’s a gamble worth taking. Critically acclaimed as ´´excruciating…compelling” (Booklist, starred review) and ´´propulsive” (People), Gone is a high-octane and hard-hitting thriller you won’t be able to put down. *Originally published as One Kick (Simon & Schuster, 2014). 1.
