Insane with grief, Sand vows to destroy a terrorist cabal.... Ever since he took the vows of the samurai, Robert Sand has been ready to die. But now, for the first time in his life, he has a reason to live. Her name is Ann, and he sits beside her, awaiting takeoff for Geneva, when terrorists seize the plane. Holding guns on the passengers and crew, they douse the cabin in liquor and light a fire that will burn until it reaches the gas tanks. The terrorists flee as smoke fills the plane, but one lingers - a Japanese killer with a vendetta against the black samurai. He puts two bullets in Ann’s back, and even Sand’s lightning reflexes are not fast enough to save her. The Sword of Allah, the most feared terrorist organization on the planet, planned the attack. Its next operation threatens to turn the Cold War up to a boil, but they made one foolish mistake. Robert Sand is angry, and will have his revenge. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kenerly.

The Beach: The History of Paradise on Earth , H...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Here for the first time is the full story of the seashore: its natural and social history, spectacles, and scandals. The turquoise surf and sugary sand of the beach make it a favorite retreat today, but this wasn't always so. The oceans of antiquity engendered contradictory feelings. Greek and Roman myths filled it with bellicose monsters and alluring sirens. Medieval Europeans feared immersion in water. But the rediscovery of its medicinal attractions in the 17th century soon glorified the beach as an avenue for social pursuits.In this elegant and illuminating account, Lencek and Bosker chart the evolution of the seaside from the margins of civilization, when "exotic" meant remote and terrifying, to its present role as the center of recreation and escape. Sexuality, health, fashion, sport, beach architecture, and beachwear all have their place in the progression toward the beach resorts that represent Nirvana for the 20th-century pleasure seeker. 1.

Big Meg , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 166min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Early sunlight glittered gold on the leaves. Big Meg woke when a slight rise in temperature told him it was time to move. He raised his head to taste the air. It was still cool and a slight breeze carried smells to his flickering tongue. His ears picked out no sound other than the rustle of leaves and the creak of branches high above the ground. His head swiveled, the folds and wattles of his neck that served as camouflage shifted as he did. He decided it was safe to move and that it was early enough to find food. He stretched each leg in turn, encouraging blood flow through his limbs so he could move and find enough sunlight in which warm himself. Even for Megalania Big Meg was a large male; 23 feet long and weighing nearly two tons. His sand colored skin was mottled with gray-green stripes and patches. He had lived many years, more than most of his species and felt no aging in his muscles and bones. He feared nothing except a scent that was new and strange, a taste that had recently arrived in the forest. He feared it as he feared anything new, and instinctively knew that something about it was dangerous. He avoided that smell whenever he could. Tall eucalyptus forests and woodland dominated the land, dense enough to give shelter and provide places to lie in ambush but clear where necessary so he could move easily. Nothing had fallen to his bite for too long now. Hunger forced him to move. He didn't like that; it brought him to attention and his brain screamed fear. But the urge was too great. He needed to eat and he needed to eat soon. His stomach growled with hunger, and when he opened his jaws he expelled gas. He moved slowly at first, his four limbs aching. Slowly they began to work, the stiffness eased just enough for him to move his bulk between the trees. They shook as he pushed past and wary birds screeched in alarm. 1. Language: English.

What choice do you make when those you've vowed to protect refuse to be protected? Dead women are showing up in the desert east of San Diego, and no one understands why. When the story comes to the attention of reporter Natalie Ellis, she can't help but make comparisons to the tragic deaths she'd investigated years ago.
