'A compelling tale... a narrative that makes such a brave effort to see history as it evolves and not as it becomes.' SPECTATOR Suffused with the tense atmosphere of the times, and with brilliant portraits of Hitler, Goebbels, Goering and Himmler amongst others, Erik Larson's new book sheds unique light on events as they unfold, resulting in an unforgettable, addictively readable work of narrative history. Berlin,1933. William E. Dodd, a mild-mannered academic from Chicago, has to his own and everyone else's surprise, become America's first ambassador to Hitler's Germany, in a year that proves to be a turning point in history. Dodd and his family, notably his vivacious daughter, Martha, observe at first-hand the many changes - some subtle, some disturbing, and some horrifically violent - that signal Hitler's consolidation of power. Dodd has little choice but to associate with key figures in the Nazi party, his increasingly concerned cables make little impact on an indifferent U.S. State Department, while Martha is drawn to the Nazis and their vision of a 'New Germany' and has a succession of affairs with senior party players, including first chief of the Gestapo, Rudolf Diels. But as the year darkens, Dodd and his daughter find their lives transformed and any last illusion they might have about Hitler are shattered by the violence of the 'Night of the Long Knives' in the summer of 1934 that established him as supreme dictator . . .

Paul Schumann is a mobster hitman known equally for his brilliant tactics and for taking only ‘righteous’ jobs. When a hit goes wrong and Schumann is nabbed, he’s offered a stark choice. He can travel to Berlin and kill the man behind Hitler’s rearmament scheme, and walk free forever. Or be sent to the electric chair. The instant Paul sets foot in Berlin, his mission goes awry. For 48 hours, as the city prepares for the coming Olympics, Schumann stalks Reinhardt Ernst while a dogged criminal police officer and the entire Third Reich apparatus search frantically for the American. Danger and betrayal lurk everywhere. It’s a cat-and-mouse chase, with Schumann both cat and mouse, and a man who thinks he has nothing to lose... Packed with fascinating period detail and featuring a cast of perfectly realised characters, GARDEN OF BEASTS delivers breathtaking action, a wrenching look at Nazi-era Berlin, and Jeffery Deaver’s most stunning series of surprises yet.

The true tale of an edenic Rocky Mountain town and what transpired when a predatory species returned to its ancestral home. When, in the late 1980s, residents of Boulder, Colorado, suddenly began to see mountain lions in their yards, it became clear that the cats had repopulated the land after decades of persecution. Here, in a riveting environmental fable that recalls Peter Benchley's thriller Jaws, journalist David Baron traces the history of the mountain lion and chronicles Boulder's effort to coexist with its new neighbors. A parable for our times, The Beast in the Garden is a scientific detective story and a real-life drama, a tragic tale of the struggle between two highly evolved predators: man and beast.

The Enchanted Screen: The Unknown History of Fairy-Tale Films offers readers a long overdue, comprehensive look at the rich history of fairy tales and their influence on film, complete with the inclusion of an extensive filmography compiled by the author. With this book, Jack Zipes not only looks at the extensive, illustrious life of fairy tales and cinema, but he also reminds us that, decades before Walt Disney made his mark on the genre, fairy tales were central to the birth of cinema as a medium, as they offered cheap, copyright-free material that could easily engage audiences not only though their familiarity but also through their dazzling special effects. Since the story of fairy tales on film stretches far beyond Disney, this book, therefore, discusses a broad range of films silent, English and non-English, animation, live-action, puppetry, woodcut, montage (Jim Henson), cartoon, and digital. Zipes, thus, gives his readers an in depth look into the special relationship between fairy tales and cinema, and guides us through this vast array of films by tracing the adaptations of major fairy tales like "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Snow White," "Peter Pan," and many more, from their earliest cinematic appearances to today. Full of insight into some of our most beloved films and stories, and boldly illustrated with numerous film stills, The Enchanted Screen, is essential reading for film buffs and fans of the fairy tale alike.

I intend to offer the reading society and individuals varieties of pieces to ponder. This book captures (thoughts) only what my spoken words cannot. I believe that to obtain a balance in our minds and in our hearts we must explore the perimeters of our existence.From despair to happiness, we must look inside to inevitably know ourselves. Literature is a quiet language of its own, that must be manifest in books. We must cherish literature. The title: Sunday In The Body Of The Garden Of Tyme sums up a day in the life of the author that lasted twenty years. I assure you that he lived the research. Is it poetry? Useless montage? You decide. The subjects and ideas I represent are commonly grim or disconnected from hope. This book reveals my battles w/ in & out. I do favor traditional styles of poetry. However, I am somewhat idiomorphic w/ these small stories. I fear God and am constantly learning things from the least mundane to the most divine. True poetry never fills a page or a book -it forms a conscience far from the pages, far from our hands. I do wish that my readers find in this inaugural book: Humor, intellect, question and relevence -for these are scripts that we may all relate to in one way or another.
