Simon & Schuster 239608 London 2009 1847386954 / 9781847386953 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket A sacred oath, a fallen angel, a forbidden love... Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life. Praise for Hush, Hush: 'A fast-paced, exhilarating read... bad boy Patch is genuinely, even unsettlingly, seductive - fans of paranormal romance should be rapt.' - Publisher's Weekly 'Well written, lovingly crafted, with a savvy protagonist with a love interest so quirky and unpredictable it is going to have the reader with their heart in their mouth the whole way.' - Falcata Times 'The story is well-paced and I didn't guess what was going on so found myself hooked to discover the truth... I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it!' - The Bookbag 'It's this layer of suspense and darkness that separates Hush, Hush from many other young adult novels.' - Bookgeeks 'A powerful and hypnotic first novel that delights and terrifies with every turn.'

Resurrection Day, Brendan DuBois

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.

What was to occur after that was to bring a day of such promise to a tragic end."

"From the Chevy Chase housewife who commits a shocking act to the watchful bum protecting Georgetown street vendors, the tome offers a startling glimpse into the cityscape's darkest corners...Fans of the [noir] genre will find solid writing, palpable tension and surprise endings." "Washington Post" "Every story in this all-original noir anthology set in the nation's capital is well-written." "Publishers Weekly" "Imbued with countless collective years of local experience." "Washington City Paper" "[Pelecanos] has assembled a compelling mix of ex-convicts, retired police officers, former crime beat reporters and a few writing pros willing to turn their storytelling eye, whether jaundiced or tender, inward toward the neighborhood...Local haunts and hangouts are lovingly drawn."

Viking 243757 Australia 2012 0670076546 / 9780670076543 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Kerry Packer described her as a 'dedicated and brilliant journalist who has achieved greatness in her industry very early and so quickly' and 'a jewel beyond price'. Cold Chisel wrote a song about her. Rupert Murdoch was so impressed by her talents, he asked her to be the editor-in-chief of both the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs - and in doing so, become the first woman ever to edit a major Australian metropolitan newspaper.In her extraordinary career, spanning over fifty years, Ita Buttrose has been involved in every aspect of the media, from newspapers and magazines to television and radio and now, electronic publishing. From her creation of a new type of women's magazine in Cleo and then ITA, to her appointment as the youngest-ever editor of The Australian Women's Weekly (a distinction she still holds today), a passionate love of journalism has driven her every step of the way.Refreshingly candid about the challenges she has faced as a professional woman, not only in her career but also in her love life and as a mother, A Passionate Life describes those ground-breaking years with Ita's trademark clarity, precision and wit.In this substantially revised and expanded edition, Ita also shares her views on current affairs and the state of the media today, including an insider's perspective on the Murdoch empire. We hear about her significant recent contribution to various health awareness campaigns, particularly Alzheimer's Australia; her coverage of the 2011 royal wedding; her new incarnation as a rap star; the making of Paper Giants and her recent venture into the new territory of electronic publishing. An appealing and lively autobiography by one of Australia's most distinguished journalists, A Passionate Life will strike a chord with working women everywhere. 362 pages.
