Sixty seconds. That’s how long it took for Elizabeth Jackson’s world to collapse. A normal day, a cold street – and all at once everything is gone. Twenty one years. That’s how long Alby Levin knows he’s been in love with his best friend, Elizabeth. So when she moves into his London apartment, lost, but full of life – he has to question: Is she back for truth about their past, or something else entirely? “Completely addictive.” – Ruth Buck. “Suspenseful romance that’s as easy to read as it is uplifting. A world I’d love to live in.” – Kylie Morrison “I feel like this story belongs to me. First you fall for Tessa and then you fall for Alby… and the two of them together? Magic.” – Cynthia House “Romance. Love. As it should be, worth a read.” – Jennifer Lee
As an 18-year-old, John Urwin was posted to Cyprus, where he was recruited into a top-secret unit called the Sixteen, whose task was to assassinate key figures throughout the Middle East. Now he breaks his silence to tell their story. Their training was said to have surpassed that of the SAS in unarmed combat and weaponry. His description of their four key missions is explosive and a riveting account of the turbulent 1950s in the Middle East. The Cold War was approaching its height and when there was a mission to be undertaken that no government could be seen to endorse, the Sixteen would do the job. No previous depiction of a military group, in book or movie, has remotely compared to the secrecy, skills, and sheer professionalism of the Sixteen.
In the world of sports, football is still king.
From Pop Warner up through the pros, people just can’t seem to get enough of their gridiron gods. Nowhere is this truer than in Buffalo, New York, where the fans are desperate for a winner. The Buffalo Blizzard of the North American Football Association (NAFA) have teased and tortured their fan base for well beyond a decade. Long past is the franchise’s heyday in the mid- to late-‘90s when they lost four consecutive Mega Bowls. However, this just may be the year (2015). Jack Driftwood, a 17-year NAFA veteran (all with the Blizzard), is back for number 18 and one last shot at Mega Bowl glory. But the Blizzard haven’t been to the playoffs since Driftwood’s rookie year when they lost in a blowout in Mega Bowl 33. Blizzard General Manager Donald Allen Fegel Jr, through a series of shrewd moves and backroom dealings, has brought the franchise back from the dead and into contention. Team owner Gerald Wainscott III is no spring chicken, and he has recruited his daughter Gerry to take over the franchise when he is gone. Gerry’s arrival throws a wrench into the lives of both Driftwood and Fegel, but for entirely different reasons. Driftwood and Fegel clash on and off the field in a truly no-holds-barred fight to the finish. Yet they each desire one thing above all: A Mega Bowl victory for the city of Buffalo.
Una abuela que emigró de Kiev; un abuelo vegetariano, ateo y socialista; un padre que murió joven; una madre que remarca los sacrificios de su vida. En el centro de la escena, una niña que observa y escucha su entorno con agudeza y picardía. Fuera del círculo familiar, las amigas de la cuadra, la escuela, el almacén, el conservatorio de música, la iglesia, y el telón de fondo de los gobiernos conservadores y el ascenso de Perón. Libro sobre los inicios y a la vez inicio en sí mismo, Músicos y relojeros inauguró la obra de Alicia Steimberg en 1971 y se ha conv ertido en una fresca y ya clásica novela de la literatura argentina, que retrata con irreverencia y humor la infancia y la vida fam iliar. La crítica ha dicho... « "Un agudo relato parcialmente autobiográfico sobre la niñez de una chica judía en la Argentina de la década de 1940. Esta novela -una joya- lleva la marca de la voz distintiva de Steimberg, ingeniosamente descarada, irónica pero cálida, precoz y a la vez con conocimiento de mundo.» Publisher's Weekly
