Into the Storm: A Novel: Troubleshooters, Book ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann blends high adventure, harrowing drama, and heart-racing passion into thrilling novels of suspense. Whether tackling danger or wrestling with desire, her elite heroes and heroines never fail to give their all in stories that soar above and beyond expectations. Now, in her electrifying 10th Troubleshooters novel, Brockmann takes us into the storm. In a remote, frozen corner of New Hampshire, a Navy SEAL team and the elite security experts of Troubleshooters Incorporated are going head-to-head as fierce but friendly rivals in a raid-and-rescue training exercise. Despite the frigid winter temperatures, tension smolders between veteran SEAL Petty Officer Mark "Jenk" Jenkins and former cop turned troubleshooter Lindsey Fontaine after an impulsive night goes awry. And then suddenly Tracy Shapiro, the Troubleshooters' new receptionist, vanishes while playing the role of hostage during a mock rescue operation. Teaming up with the FBI to launch a manhunt in the treacherous wilderness, Jenk and Lindsey must put aside their feelings as a record snowstorm approaches, dramatically reducing any hope of finding Tracy alive. The trail is colder than the biting New England climate until a lucky break leads to a horrifying discovery - a brutally murdered young woman wearing the jacket Tracy wore when she disappeared. Suddenly there is a chilling certainty that Tracy has fallen prey to a serial killer - one who knows the backwoods terrain and who doesn't play by the rules of engagement. In a race against time, a raging blizzard, and a cunning opponent, Jenk and Lindsey are put to the ultimate test. Risking everything, they must finally come together in a desperate attempt to save Tracy - and each other. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Lawlor, Melanie Ewbank.

US-Africa Relations: The Donald Trump Presidency
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It is incontrovertible to allude to the fact that the election and emergence of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America has brought about some misgivings across many countries of the world with several implications for Africa. It is expected that there would be continuity in US-Africa relations in the areas of safety, security and counter-terrorism. Trump has been a consistent opponent of marriage equality in line with African culture while illegal African migrants would now find it difficult to move into the US. The administration is tilted towards re-negotiating American foreign trade deals that favor bilateral trade agreements (BITs) over multi-party agreements while the disposition of Trump would affect Africa negatively on climate change. The paper concludes that Trump's presidency is an admixture of good and bad omen for the Sub-Saharan Africa and recommended an urgent need for Africa to really look inward through purposeful leadership, embracing vibrant natural resource governance, curbing corruption and having the strong political-will to develop by depending less on foreign intervention.

Phocion the Good (Routledge Revivals)
52,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Plutarch's Life of Phocion has not been closely analysed since 1840. Laurence Trittle's study, first published in 1988, offers a new assessment of this significant and complex personality, whilst illuminating the political climate in which he thrived. Though often thought to be of humble origin, Phocion was educated in Plato's Academy, rose to prominence in the innermost circles of Athenian political life, and was renowned as a soldier throughout the Greek world. Professor Trittle traces the origins and development of the historical tradition that so shaped an image of the 'Good' Phocion, so that his actual achievements as a politician and general were all but lost. He can thus now be seen in the context of fourth-century Athens: as a major political leader, a worthy opponent of Philip of Macedon, and a champion of a politics of justice rather than of the traditional politics of enmity.
