Ghost Story

It began shortly after the party at which one of their members, Edward Wanderley, had died – or was killed. The Chowder Society, who for years had met in customary evening dress with the object of telling each other tales of every kind, now found themselves drawn towards the supernatural. It was some sort of solace for Edward’s loss. They began to tell ghost stories, extraordinary ghost stories … ghost stories that did not always stop when the teller finished speaking … Then came the dreams, shared simultaneously by the Chowder Society members, forecasting horrors the four ageing men can scarcely bring themselves to discuss. And now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past – and get away with murder.

Getting Old Is Tres Dangereux

SUMMARY: In Fort Lauderdale, self-proclaimed private eye Gladdy Gold is less interested in her cases than in her whirlwind romance with silver-haired Jack Langford. But just as Jack is about to pop the question to Gladdy, a curvaceous redhead from France interrupts with a mysterious agenda. She and Jack, it turns out, will always have Paris. And to make matters worse, the seductress is being stalked by a killer. Michelle DuBois is famous for her steamy bestselling exposés — and now someone wants to silence her forever.

Unbeknownst to Gladdy, her fellow detectives are hot on her trail. Sophie, Bella, and Ida no sooner land their tootsies in the Big Apple than trouble promptly finds them. But while the girls go deep undercover, posing as bag ladies to catch a criminal, there’s another surprise awaiting Gladdy. Her boyfriend, Jack, is in town too–and he’s reopening a forty-seven-year-old cold case: the murder of Gladdy’s husband.

Get More Leads the Real Guide to Online Marketing

In the past twenty years, online marketing has been transformed. In the early days, websites were static and the idea of finding suppliers online was so novel that all you really had to do was put up a website and people would become your customers. On the other hand, not many people were online, and those who were tended to be concentrated in certain geographic areas – primarily North America and Western Europe.
Neither of those things is true any longer. It sometimes seems as though the whole world is online; in fact, it’s only almost half the world, because the International Telecommunication Union says that 2.3 billion people were online at the end of 2015, and that is 43% of the world’s population. That’s a lot of potential consumers. Nearly 2 billion of them are in the developing world – in rural parts of Africa and Asia, millions of people will never see a doctor because the nearest one is too far away, but their health is monitored online.
As users have grown, they’ve become more knowledgeable and more selective. That static website won’t cut it for you now. If you want to succeed online, you need to understand every part of the complex matrix of approaches that can help find a way past consumers’ natural defensiveness. You need this book.

Gerald’s Game

Now a Netflix movie directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush) and starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. Master storyteller Stephen King presents this classic, terrifying #1 New York Times bestseller. When a game of seduction between a husband and wife ends in death, the nightmare has only begun…“And now the voice which spoke belonged to no one but herself. Oh my God, it said. Oh my God, I am all alone out here. I am all alone.” Once again, Jessie Burlingame has been talked into submitting to her husband Gerald’s kinky sex games—something that she’s frankly had enough of, and they never held much charm for her to begin with. So much for a “romantic getaway” at their secluded summer home. After Jessie is handcuffed to the bedposts—and Gerald crosses a line with his wife—the day ends with deadly consequences. Now Jessie is utterly trapped in an isolated lakeside house that has become her prison—and comes face-to-face with her deepest, darkest fears and memories. Her only company is that of the various voices filling her mind…as well as the shadows of nightfall that may conceal an imagined or very real threat right there with her…
