The Dead of Winter: A Piper Blackwell Mystery, ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In a deceptively peaceful county, a murderer hides in plain sight. Fifty-eight minutes into her first day on the job, 23-year-old Sheriff Piper Blackwell is faced with a grisly murder, the victim artfully posed amid decorations on his lawn. Drawing on former military training, Piper must prove herself worthy of the sheriff's badge, and that won't be easy. Chief Deputy Oren Rosenberg, Piper's opponent in the recent election, doesn't like her and wants her to fail. She doesn't like him either, but she needs Oren to help catch the killer before another victim is discovered. Too late! As Piper leads the manhunt, another crisis hits close to home. Her father, the previous sheriff, is fighting for his life, and she is torn between family and duty. Facing personal and professional threats, Piper has to weather a raging storm, keep the sheriff's department from crumbling around her, and reel in a killer during the most brutal winter sleepy Spencer County, Indiana, has ever experienced. 1.

One of the most famous partnerships in literature yields, over time, to a peculiar romantic triangle. Sherlock Holmes. Dr. John Watson. And the good doctor's second wife, whom Doyle never named. In L.A. Fields's novel, Mrs. Watson is a clever woman who realizes, through examining all the prior cases her husband shared with the world's greatest consulting detective, that the two men shared more than adventures: they were lovers, as well. In 1919, after the pair has retired, Mrs. Watson invites Holmes to her home to meet him face to face. Thus begins a recounting of a peculiar affair between extraordinary men. "You are such a unique person," Holmes says poisonously. "What a shame that history will most likely never remember your name." The question Mrs. Watson faces: did Holmes simply take advantage of her husband's loyalty and love, or did the detective return those feelings? And what to do now that the pair are no longer living together at Baker Street and Watson has other claims on his affections? My Dear Watson offers readers a romance that requires as much reasoning to puzzle out as it does passion. Mrs. Watson proves a worthy opponent - in intellect, in guile, in conviction - for the great detective. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Hearne.

What's Wrong with US?: A Coach’s Blunt Take on ...

Every four years, Americans turn their attention to the world’s game - soccer. As recently as 1998, the USMNT merely made up the numbers at the biggest sporting tournament of all, but once Bruce Arena took over the team, American soccer started to find its footing. In the 2002 World Cup, a highly-fancied Portugal team, featuring the great Ronaldo, lost to Arena’s US team in a shocking 3-2 victory, and but for a handball that wasn’t given, they could well have knocked off eventual winners Germany. But that quarterfinal appearance proved once and for all that the USMNT, like the women’s team before them, deserved to be considered a worthy opponent - and that’s all thanks to Bruce Arena. When he took over the USMNT, Arena was already the most successful club team coach in US history, having led DC United to the first two championships of the fledgling MLS. Arena - known for his tactical acumen and no-nonsense approach to coaching - inspired and instilled just enough fear into his teams to make them overachieve. By 2016, however, the national team was in a funk - coach Jurgen Klinsmann had brought the team to near elimination during the qualifying rounds for Russia. Cue Arena’s return to the stage, and the team’s return to form. Arena’s audiobook will teach fans what makes this hugely successful coach tick. And the thousands of coaches around the country will turn to What's Wrong With US? to see exactly how they can instill Arena’s blueprint for success on their own bands of young players. 1.

All new narration adds sound effects and eliminates issues noted in reviews. To obtain new version, remove old one from device, download new copy at no charge. We colonized seven hundred planets. Humankind enjoyed the benefits of expansion and the end of wars. We disbanded our military. Then the Krall found us. The Krall have used thousands of years of combat to select the genes of the strongest and fastest warriors. They are a species determined to dominate the galaxy, through annihilation or enslavement of every opponent. Koban is an uninhabited high gravity planet with impossibly fast savage animals, which employ organic superconducting nerves. This deadly world is where the Krall are testing humans for fighting capability. We are useful only if we can fight well. If not, they will destroy us swiftly, as they have other species. They have slaves, and we’re poor tasting meat animals, so we fight or die. The Krall will use us, if worthy, seeking physical perfection through attrition of war, one planet at a time. Growing weary of our failures in testing, the ruthless Krall are on the verge of a decision to eliminate our species. A ship carrying bio-scientists is captured for combat testing. The choice for Captain Mirikami and the scientists is simple: Prove we can produce better, smarter fighters quickly, or humanity is doomed to rapid extermination. But the Krall are only half the problem. We must survive Koban's gravity and superfast animals. The tiger-like rippers with skin contact telepathy are predators too fast and powerful for the Krall to face. Our solution is genetic: If you can't beat them as you are, become human rippers. The Krall will learn another species can bypass natural selection. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Freeman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/014355/bk_acx0_014355_sample.mp3.

Tosca
21,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This production from the historic Teatro Carlo Felice in Genova, Italy, stars the opera world’s power couple, Daniela Dessì and Fabio Armiliato, as lovers Tosca and Cavaradossi. A tragic tale of doomed love interlaced with the age-old themes of jealousy, lust and intrigue, has ensured Tosca its place in the top ten of opera favourites.The task of putting Tosca on the stage in a way that is credible and timeless is both straightforward and difficult. For the three main roles – the unscrupulous police chief Vitellio Scarpia and the painter Mario Cavaradossi, who provide a framework for Floria Tosca, “a famous singer” (both on stage and in real life), all you need is star performers of the required virtuosity, although they do need to display a certain enjoyment in performing – something one has never been able to take for granted in music theatre. It should be made clear from the outset that the 2010 production at the Teatro Carlo Felice zu Genua, with its stage set based on Adolf Hohenstein’s original design for the work’s premiere, ticks all the boxes. Probably the best contemporary soprano-tenor combination (a couple in real life, too) – Daniela Dessì and Fabio Armiliato – are ranged against a worthy opponent in the form of Claudio Sgura as Baron Scarpia.
