When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe - not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City.... A driver for a top-of-the-line limousine service is found dead - shot through the neck with a crossbow. The car was booked by an executive at a venerable security company whose identity had been stolen. Days later, a stunning, high-priced escort is found killed at Coney Island, a bayonet stuck in her heart. And again, the trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked. With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life - and death. Eve does not know where or when the next kill will be, or that her investigation will take her to the rarefied circle that Roarke travels in - and into the perverted heart of madness.... 1.

Breve storia della Prima Guerra Mondiale Vol. 5...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Dopo la battaglia della Marna, la Prima Guerra Mondiale perde definitivamente il suo slancio: i fronti sono veri e propri inferni di morte e devastazione, dove gli opposti schieramenti si affrontano senza riuscire a prevalere gli uni sugli altri. Ai combattimenti corpo a corpo, all’arma bianca e alla baionetta furono aggiunti nuovi strumenti di morte (gas asfissianti, sottomarini, mitragliatrici). I soldati, consapevoli di ´´andare al macello´´, non potevano che obbedire a folli ordini di comandanti che si mostravano del tutto indifferenti a quelle continue carnefici-ne.In questo quinto volume de La Breve storia della Prima Guerra Mondiale, en-triamo nel pieno del conflitto, concentrando l’attenzione specialmente sui fronti orientali: la sconfitta della Serbia e la Campagna di Mesopotamia, la creazione del mito di Lawrence d’Arabia e la questione palestinese, che prende origine proprio in questi anni e ancora oggi non è risolta. [After the battle of the Marne, the First World War finally loses its momentum: the fronts are real hells of death and devastation, where the opposing sides face off without being able to prevail over each other. For melee combat, with bayonets and bayonet were added new instruments of death (poison gas, sub-marines, machine guns). The soldiers, aware of ´´going to the slaughter,´´ could not but obey orders to commanders crazy that showed themselves completely indifferent to the ongoing carnage. In this fifth volume of The Brief History of the First World War, we enter the height of the conflict, focusing especially on the eastern fronts: the defeat of Ser-bia and the Country of Mesopotamia, the creation of the myth of Lawrence of Arabia and the question Palestinian, which takes its origin in recent years and is still not resolved.] Please note: This audiobook is in Italian. 1.

Midnight in the Pacific: Guadalcanal - The Worl...
9,95 € *

A sweeping narrative history - the first in over 20 years - of America´s first major offensive of World War II, the brutal, no-quarter-given campaign to take Japanese-occupied Guadalcanal. From early August until mid-November of 1942, US marines, sailors, and pilots struggled for dominance against an implacable enemy: Japanese soldiers, inculcated with the bushido tradition of death before dishonor, avatars of bayonet combat - close-up, personal, and gruesome. The glittering prize was Henderson Airfield. Japanese planners knew that if they neutralized the airfield, the battle was won. So did the marines who stubbornly defended it. The outcome of the long slugfest remained in doubt under the pressure of repeated Japanese air, land, and sea operations. And losses were heavy. At sea, in a half-dozen fiery combats, the US Navy fought the Imperial Japanese Navy to a draw, but at a cost of more than 4,500 sailors. More American sailors died in these battles off Guadalcanal than in all previous US wars, and each side lost 24 warships. On land, more than 1,500 soldiers and marines died, and the air war claimed more than 500 US planes. Japan´s losses on the island were equally devastating - starving Japanese soldiers called it ´´the island of death´´. But when the attritional struggle ended, American marines, sailors, and airmen had halted the Japanese juggernaut that for five years had whirled through Asia and the Pacific. Guadalcanal was America´s first major ground victory against Japan and, most importantly, the Pacific War´s turning point. Published on the 75th anniversary of the battle and utilizing vivid accounts written by the combatants at Guadalcanal, along with marine corps and army archives and oral histories, Midnight in the Pacific is both a sweeping narrative and a compelling drama of individual marines, soldiers, and sailors caught in the crosshairs of history.

The Real-Life World´s Most Interesting Men: Vic...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Everybody imagines the world´s most interesting man to be a fictional, gray-haired lothario who drinks Mexican beer and boasts of his legendary exploits. But what if a man like this really lived? It turns out he did, and there were two of them--both Victorian explorers. The first was Richard Franics Burton, an adventurer who learned 29 languages, went undercover as a Muslim on a pilgrimage to Mecca, and wrote 50 books on topics ranging from a translation of the Kama Sutra to a manual on bayonet exercises. The second was Sir Richard Stanley, who led a massive expedition through Africa to find Dr. Livingston. By the time of his death in 1904, he had explored much of the continent and developed much of the interior. Stanley´s greatest expedition was his 1874-1877 crossing of Africa on foot to the mouth of the Congo, traveling more than 7,000 miles and contending with the threat of malaria, unknown wild animals in the jungle, unfriendly tribesmen, harsh weather conditions, worries about running out of food, and any number of incomprehensible threats to their lives on that dangerous voyage. Learn about the lives of these two extraordinary men and how a beer pitchman could never hope to live up to them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.
