Roselys vit désormais à Versailles. Malgré l'ambiance pesante de la Cour et son étiquette si rigide, la jeune fille mène une vie plutôt agréable parmi les intimes de la reine. Elle chante pour Marie-Antoinette, qui n'hésite pas à lui confier de petites missions secrètes. Un matin, en ville, Roselys est témoin d'un grave accident : le bé, mourant, lui confie un curieux médaillon d'argent, en ânonnant des mots énigmatiques : « clé... blanche...»... Une fois rentrée à son logis, la jeune fille découvre à l'intérieur du bijou les portraits miniatures d'un couple. Curieusement, ils lui semblent familiers. Roselys et son bien-aimé Valsens se promettent d'enquêter...
Warm, sultry Louisiana nights, a sexy-to-her-stilettoed-toes blues singer, one hot-under-the-collar fireman, and a vengeful arsonist. Explosions guaranteed! New Orleans, the Big Easy-until your life and family are threatened. Suspicious fires have struck Torey Hart's family twice in two years, and her father tops arson-investigator Lieutenant Jack Stevens' suspect list. As Jack probes for evidence to prove Hart guilty, his feelings for Torey complicate the investigation.
Feelings can have no place in his profession, and he works equally hard to avoid them in his personal life. And yet, the blaze that destroyed Torey's home and her father's business is nothing compared to the heat, the sizzle that ignites between himself and Torey. The true arsonist creeps ever closer, and the danger becomes deadly. Can Torey stay alive long enough, and lure Jack close enough to teach him to love and trust again?
In 1263, when the vault containing the body of St. Anthony was opened, thirty-two years after its original internment, the flesh had turned to dust, but the tongue was in a perfect state of preservation. For almost eight-hundred years it was kept mounted on a pin. But now it has been stolen. Padua, Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome. . . .
Father Torturo, the neo-decadent anti-hero, moves through a modern Italy reeking of incense and filth. In an adventure stained with magic and garnished with cruelty, he travels on an ambitious journey to popedom, where the only laws that restrain him are those of his own artistic taste.
A name angel has been out of God’s favor since things went wrong with his last mission, 2,000 years ago. He has spent the intervening millennia watching the humanity he so loves fall into moral disrepair.
Lately, he's been watching Will, a businessman attempting to expose his company's dark dealings to the press. Will's campaign is not going well. In a moment of weakness and bravado, the angel decides to take over Will--"jumping in" as he did over two millennia ago. What follows is a mortal struggle between good and evil, as cosmic forces fight to maintain the status quo. As Will begins to lose his grip on himself and his mission, the reader is forced to question whose reckoning this is: Are these the delusions of a man crushed by the hypocrisies of modern society? Or the actions of an angel desperate to right our wrongs? Powerfully written, fast paced, and perfect for fans of Chuck Palahniuk, Joe Hill, and Bret Easton Ellis, What I Tell You in the Dark is an unsettling story of omnipotence, mayhem, capitalism, and corruption—a violet struggle between intentions and their consequences played out on a grand scale.
A classic of sport, and the first of George Plimpton's remarkable forays into "participatory" journalism, OUT OF MY LEAGUE chronicles with wit, charm, and grace what happens when a self-professed amateur wonders how he would fare on a baseball mound in a major league game. On an ordinary afternoon in the third-base-line seats of Yankee Stadium, Plimpton hits on what seems an inspired idea--to get on the mound and pitch a few innings to the All Stars of the American and National Leagues. What begins as a fun-filled stunt, for the "average man" to pitch in the Big Leagues, comes to a nearly humiliating end. This honest and hilarious tale features Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin, Willie Mays, Ernie Banks, Whitey Ford, Ralph Houk, Richie Ashburn, and other baseball greats. What happens when America's favorite sports dilettante tries his arm against the likes of hall-of-fame baseball players recalls every young boy's forgotten dream of heroics on a baseball diamond; and for that fact alone, OUT OF MY LEAGUE remains one of George Plimpton's most beloved works.
