Fear or Be Feared: Fantasies: John Walters
In the new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, Mary DiNunzio’s ruthless nemesis Nick Machiavelli is back...with a vengeance. When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination—claiming that they were not hired because they were men—Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to resign, claiming that there is some truth to this case. The plaintiffs’ lawyer is Nick Machiavelli, who has already lost to Mary once and is now back with a vengeance —determined not to not only win, but destroy the firm. It soon becomes clear that Machiavelli will do anything in his power to achieve his end…even after the case turns deadly. The stakes have never been higher for Mary and her associates as they try to keep Machiavelli at bay, solve a murder, and save the law firm they love…or they could lose everything they’ve worked for. Told with Scottoline´s trademark gift for twists, turns, heart, and humanity, this latest thriller asks the question: Is it better to be loved, or feared... Feared, the sixth entry in the acclaimed Rosato & DiNunzio series, expertly explores what happens when we are tempted to give in to our own inner darkness. Praise for the Rosato & DiNunzio series: ´´Hit every mark… down to the last satisfying twist” —Kirkus Review on Feared ´´Fast paced, heart-tugging...readers will enjoy seeing how it all plays out.´´ —Publishers Weekly on Exposed 1.

A college baseball scholarship was his way out of the inner city, but his dreams of going pro were crushed by an arm injury. John Alite was forced to return home to the only life he knew, where having to live on the streets of New York meant one thing - earning how to survive. He was driven. He was extreme. He was feared. But most of all, he was loyal. From a young age, he found himself influenced by the wrong crowd. Enticed by the wealth, power, and prestige of the mafia, he immersed himself in a world that was foreign to most. A society where policies were enforced by instilling fear. Honor and loyalty were merely a misnomer. The cold, bitter truth was he was expendable, and his sworn allegiance was rewarded with betrayal.On the run and unable to trust anyone, John was finally forced to confront his own demon - himself. Facing the harsh realities of who he was and what he had done wasn´t pretty, and he had some serious, life-altering decisions to make - ones that would come with a price. Through a life of heartache, betrayal, and loss comes a story of grace, healing, and redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Barrett.

Have you watched horror stories where vampires are the main characters? If you think that these supernatural beings are just part of your imagination, try to consider the possibility that they really exist. The night is filled with fear, as a vampire could attack randomly. The extreme thirst for blood may turn anyone as the victim or prey. Having an encounter with a serial killer would be the worst experience ever. When we say ´´serial killer´´, this person murdered more than two people, not just by shooting a gun or stabbing them with a knife. It is horrible to know that sexual contact is involved in most serial killings. Among the stories you have heard, you may not have found yet this peak level of intensity. The version where John Brennan is the vampire rapist is where you will discover his brutal acts and dark intentions. This man had criminal backgrounds like rape and kidnapping. Specifically, Crutchley killed 32 women in his entire venture. Considering the fact that he drained his victim´s blood, he is indeed suitable for the title of ´´vampire rapist´´. John was part of a wealthy family, but not of a circle of friends. Instead of interacting with the other young children outside, he preferred to explore his gadgets and play games. With his interest on technology-assisted equipment, his career was related to electronics. John Crutchley was able to earn a decent income from rebuilding stereo systems and doing radio repairs. This man has great potentials, making him competent in the company he was part of. He completed his course in physics within a reputable school in Ohio. After earning his bachelor´s degree, he never stopped learning. In fact, John Crutchley had his post-graduate schooling for the improvement of his skills in electronics. His diligence in studying is too far from his image of being a ´´vampire rapist´´ and criminal. This man was feared due to his notorious acts. However, every individual has his own burden. 1.

John D. Rockefeller, Sr., history’s first billionaire and the patriarch of America’s most famous dynasty, is an icon whose true nature has eluded three generations of historians. Now Ron Chernow, a National Book Award-winning biographer, gives us a detailed and insightful history of the mogul. Titan is the first full-length biography based on unrestricted access to Rockefeller’s exceptionally rich trove of papers. A landmark publication full of startling revelations, the book indelibly alters our image of this most enigmatic capitalist. Born the son of a flamboyant, bigamous snake-oil salesman and a pious, straitlaced mother, Rockefeller rose from rustic origins to become the world’s richest man by creating America’s most powerful and feared monopoly, Standard Oil. Branded ´´the Octopus´´ by legions of muckrakers, the trust refined and marketed nearly 90 percent of the oil produced in America. Rockefeller was likely the most controversial businessman in our nation’s history. Critics charged that his empire was built on unscrupulous tactics: grand-scale collusion with the railroads, predatory pricing, industrial espionage, and wholesale bribery of political officials. The titan spent more than 30 years dodging investigations until Teddy Roosevelt and his trustbusters embarked on a marathon crusade to bring Standard Oil to bay. While providing abundant evidence of Rockefeller’s misdeeds, Chernow discards the stereotype of the cold-blooded monster to sketch an unforgettably human portrait of a quirky, eccentric original. A devout Baptist and temperance advocate, Rockefeller gave money more generously than anyone before him - his chosen philanthropies included the Rockefeller Foundation, the University of Chicago, and what is today Rockefeller University. Titan presents a finely nuanced portrait of a fascinating, complex man, synthesizing his public and private lives and disclosing numerous family scandals, tragedi 1. Language: English.

The Boy from Rod Alley is an account of a 1930s childhood. This depiction of one boy´s experience blends into a story of a decade, in the aftermath of the Great War, as ex-soldiers ride their old army bikes, ´widow-women´ are familiar figures and ´Umbrella Joe´ paces in shell-shock aimlessness. John guides readers past the deep pond in front of the house, both feared and loved, with surrounding willows simultaneously familiar and a challenge. The great village Green, with a mixture of humble or imposing dwellings, and school, church, chapels, shops, a smithy, and his family agricultural-engineering workshop and foundry around its edge, holds delights or threats. At each of its five corners, a road leads to other places which also become part of the story, a warren, lake, small stream, villages, small towns, the city of Norwich, the latter increasingly alluring as he grows. And from other places come strangers or familiar visitors. Among them, as among the ´locals´, some are memorable. Discarding adult hindsight in favour of the immediacy of the narrative, John recounts feelings and notions inherent in his boyhood experiences and actions. In his head are characters from books, newspapers, songs, films, history and legend. His imagination relates these day-to-day, realities, shaping his attitudes and interests.
Stella Rode has twice disturbed the ancient cloisters of Carne School: firstly by being the wrong sort, with her doilies and china ducks, and secondly by being murdered. George Smiley, who has his own connection with the school, is asked by an old Service friend to investigate. Smiley knows that Stella feared her husband would murder her, but as he probes further beneath Carne´s respectable veneer, he uncovers far more than a simple crime of passion. In his second novel, le Carré moves outside the world of espionage to reveal the secrets at the heart of another particularly English institution. The result is a pitch-perfect murder mystery, with George Smiley as master detective. THE SECOND GEORGE SMILEY NOVEL ´Beautifully intelligent, satiric and witty´ Daily Telegraph
He killed before he could shoot, kissed before he could love, won before he could lose. He was too green to live, too lucky to die. He was a natural, born to be a legend. Beginner’s Luck. Bastard son of an outlaw and a whore, handsome Duane Braddock, seventeen, stumbles off the stage into lawless Titusville and gets his first look at the real world just before he’s robbed. Two weeks out of the monastery that raised him, Duane can’t ride a horse, shoot a gun, and is defenseless against the wiles of Wild West life, such as warm whiskey, wanton women, and screaming lead. But within forty-eight hours, Duane is feared by every gunman in the country as the notorious, quick-shooting, tough-riding, hard-loving Pecos Kid. Before the week is out, his victims include the town’s best and worst: the richest man, the meanest gang, the fastest gun, the prettiest woman, and the greatest friend a lucky new cowboy ever had. How it all comes to pass is how real legends are born… 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Berman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/007414/bk_adbl_007414_sample.mp3.
