Sean Duffy knows there's no such thing as a perfect crime. But a torso in a suitcase is pretty close. Still, one tiny clue is all it takes, and there it is. A tattoo. So Duffy, fully fit and back at work after the severe trauma of his last case, is ready to follow the trail of blood-however faint-that always, always connects a body to its killer. A legendarily stubborn man, Duffy becomes obsessed with this mystery as a distraction from the ruins of his love life, and to push down the seed of self-doubt that he seems to have traded for his youthful arrogance. So from country lanes to city streets, Duffy works every angle. And wherever he goes, he smells a rat... 334 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

And when you've got nothing to lose, you have everything to gain.

Of course he's heard about the spectacular escape of IRA man Dermot McCann from Her Majesty's Maze prison. And he knew, with chilly certainty, that their paths would cross. But finding Dermot leads Sean to an old locked room mystery, and into the kind of danger where you can lose as easily as winning.

The Life of I: The New Culture of Narcissism, Anne Manne
7 Anne Manne The Life of I: The New Culture of Narcissism
Melbourne University Press 245270 Melbourne 2014 0522861083 / 9780522861082 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Far from being the work of a madman, Anders Breivik's murderous rampage in Norway was the action of an extreme narcissist. As the dead lay around him, he held up a finger asking for a Band-Aid. Written with the pace of a psychological thriller, The Life of I is a compelling account of the rise of narcissism in individuals and society. Manne examines the Lance Armstrong doping scandal and the alarming rise of sexual assaults in sport and the military, as well as the vengeful killings of Elliot Rodger in California. She looks at narcissism in the pursuit of fame and our obsession with 'making it'. She goes beyond the usual suspects of social media and celebrity culture to the deeper root of the issue- how a new narcissistic character-type is being fuelled by a cult of the self and the pursuit of wealth in a hypercompetitive consumer society. The Life of I also offers insights from the latest work in psychology, looking at how narcissism develops. But Manne also shows that there is an alternative- how to transcend narcissism, to be fully alive to the presence of others; how to create a world where love and care are no longer turned inward.

Resurrection Day, Brendan DuBois
13 Brendan DuBois Resurrection Day
Warner Books 225737 London 2000 0751525499 / 9780751525496 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket "Everyone remembers exactly what they were doing the day President Kennedy tried to kill them." * * * In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of the nuclear war. The crisis was averted, but what would have happened if war had broken out? In "Resurrection Day," award-winning author Brendan DuBois brings this horrific concept to life... * * * New York Times bestselling author Lee Child: "'Resurrection Day' is the best 'what if' novel in years --- more clever and resonant than Robert Harris's 'Fatherland' --- and all the more scary because disaster was minutes away from happening for real. A book you'll read three times and keep on your shelves forever." New York Times bestselling author William Martin: "What if the Russians had not blinked in October 1962? Brendan DuBois gives us the answer in this smart, suspenseful thriller, a frighteningly believable piece of alternative history. You'll be shocked on every page by a world so familiar in its details that the terrible changes seem commonplace. Brendan DuBois is a fine writer, at the top of his game." Edgar-award winning author S.J. Rozan: "A convincing and terrifying look at an alternative history that could easily have been ours. DuBois's careful research and dark imagination weave together a story that you won't be able to put down --- and that you will be grateful is only fiction." REVIEWS Publisher's Weekly (starred review): "In his first novel outside of his acclaimed Lewis Cole mystery series DuBois delivers an alternate-history thriller that deserves to be as popular as Robert Harris's 'Fatherland.' DuBois postulates an America that has been politically devastated by a nuclear exchange arising from the Cuban missile crisis... Cohesively plotted and smoothly written, steadily exciting and rife with clever conceits, this is what-if thriller fiction at its finest." Booklist (starred review): "Like the best alternate-history fiction (Robert Harris' 'Fatherland' or the novels of Harry Turtledove), DuBois' tale is a feast for the mind, a what-if story that's so plausible it reads, at times, like nonfiction. In every way, this is a first-rate novel and one that is sure to appeal to a wide variety of readers." Rocky Mountain News: "DuBois has done an extraordinary job of envisioning a world that might have been." * * * Winner of the Sidewise Award for Best Alternative History Novel of the Year. * * * With new Author's Afterward for the this edition. * * * Cover art by Jeroen ten Berge.

Harper 241654 USA 2013 First Edition 0061802549 / 9780061802546 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Deep inside the little Amazon, the jungles of Honduras' "Mosquito Coast" - one of the largest, wildest, and most impenetrable stretches of tropical land in the world-lies the fabled city of Ciudad Blanca: the White City. For centuries, it has lured explorers, including Spanish conquistador Herman Cortes. Some intrepid souls got lost within its dense canopy; some disappeared. Others never made it out alive. Then, in 1939, an American explorer and spy named Theodore Morde claimed that he had located this El Dorado-like city. Yet before he revealed its location, Morde died under strange circumstances, giving credence to those who believe that the spirits of the Ciudad Blanca killed him. Is this lost city real or only a tantalyzing myth? What secrets does the jungle hold? What continues to draw explorers into the unknown jungleland at such terrific risk? In this absorbing true-life thriller, journalist Christopher S. Stewart sets out to find answers - a white-knuckle adventure that combines Morde's wild, enigmatic tale with Stewart's own epic journey to find the truth about the White City. 263 pages.
