Garden of Beasts

Paul Schumann is a mobster hitman known equally for his brilliant tactics and for taking only ‘righteous’ jobs. When a hit goes wrong and Schumann is nabbed, he’s offered a stark choice. He can travel to Berlin and kill the man behind Hitler’s rearmament scheme, and walk free forever. Or be sent to the electric chair.
The instant Paul sets foot in Berlin, his mission goes awry. For 48 hours, as the city prepares for the coming Olympics, Schumann stalks Reinhardt Ernst while a dogged criminal police officer and the entire Third Reich apparatus search frantically for the American.
Danger and betrayal lurk everywhere. It’s a cat-and-mouse chase, with Schumann both cat and mouse, and a man who thinks he has nothing to lose…
Packed with fascinating period detail and featuring a cast of perfectly realised characters, GARDEN OF BEASTS delivers breathtaking action, a wrenching look at Nazi-era Berlin, and Jeffery Deaver’s most stunning series of surprises yet. **
### Recensione
The best psychological thriller writer around ( * *The Times* * )
A cracking good tale that kept me glued to the page ( *Poisoned Pen* )
‘Deaver fans expect the unexpected from this prodigiously talented thriller writer, and the creator of the Lincoln Rhyme series and other memorable yarns (The Blue Nowhere, etc.) doesn’t disappoint with his 19th novel, this time offering a deliciously twisty tale set in Nazi Berlin. The book’s hero is a mob “button man,” or hit man, Paul Schumann, who’s nabbed in the act in New York City but given an alternative to the electric chair: to go to Berlin undercover as a journalist writing about the upcoming Olympics in order to assassinate Col. Reinhard Ernst, the cheif architect of Hitler’s militarization, seen as a threat to American interests. a German spy onboard Paul’s transatlantic liner grows suspicious and sends a warning to Germany before Paul discovers and kills him. Then in Berlin, Paul, en route to meet his contact, kills a second suspicious man who may be a storm trooper, setting Insp. Willi Kohl of the Berlin police, or Kripo, on his trail. Deaver weaves the three manhunts — Paul after his target, Kohl after Paul and the Nazi hierarchy after Paul — with a deft hand, bringing to frightening life the Berlin of 1936, a city on the brink of madness. Top Nazis, including Hitler, Himmler and Goring, make colorful cameos, but it’s the smart, shaded-gray characterizations of the principals that anchor the exciting plot. An affecting love affair between Paul and his German landlady goes in surprising directions, as do the main plot lines, which move outside Berlin as heroes become villains and vice versa. This is prime Deaver, which means prime entertainment.’ Publisher’s Weekly

The Forge

Raj Whitehall was a young noble of the Civil Government, the last remnant of galactic civilization on the planet Bellevue. Possessed of an unparalleled strategic genius, Raj dreamed of leading his people’s armies to victory against the barbarians who threatened to engulf them. Yet it was not exterior enemies who were Raj’s greatest challenge, but the Civil Government itself. Its bureaucrats had become corrupt extortionists. The ranks of its armies were filled with barbarian mercenaries ready to turn on the paymasters they despised. Those at the highest levels sank their knives into each other’s backs even as the barbarians closed in. And the Governor himself, the man to whom Raj was sworn and given absolute loyalty, nourished a paranoid envy and mistrust that grew with every victory Ray won… Luckily for Bellevue, Raj had a hidden asset beyond the worship of his troops and his own genius for war. Raj was possessed of–or possessed by–a “guardian angel” that guided him inexorably toward the goal of planetary dominion. But could even a battle computer of the Galactic Age be enough to counter the fury of Raj’s enemies…and the treachery of his “friends”?

For Your Eyes Only

‘Niet veel mensen zijn in staat werk en plezier zo goed te combineren als Mr Bond.’ – The Times Literary Supplement Plotselinge noodgevallen en mooie vrouwen die iets te verbergen hebben zijn dagelijkse kost in het leven van James Bond. Wanneer 007 zich met een zaak bezighoudt, staat er één ding vast: de spanning is om te snijden. Of het nu gaat om de liquidatie van een Cubaanse crimineel in de Verenigde Staten, het oprollen van een internationaal drugsnetwerk of een plotselinge dood op de Seychellen, Bond klaart de klus. Op zijn eigen, stijlvolle manier. De vijf magistrale Bond-verhalen in For Your Eyes Only maken dit voor eens en altijd duidelijk. Ian Fleming werd geboren op 28 mei 1908 in Londen. Hij bezocht Eton College en na een korte periode op de beroemde Royal Military Academy van Sandhurst trad hij in dienst van het persbureau Reuters. Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog werkte Fleming voor de marine-inlichtingendienst, waar hij van dichtbij kennismaakte met de spionagewereld die hij in zijn James Bond-boeken zou vereeuwigen. For Your Eyes Only, het achtste boek in de reeks, verscheen oorspronkelijk in 1960. Ian Fleming overleed in 1964.

For the Thrill of It

It was a crime that shocked the nation: the brutal murder in Chicago in 1924 of a child by two wealthy college students who killed solely for the thrill of the experience. Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb were intellectuals—too smart, they believed, for the police to catch them. When they were apprehended, state’s attorney Robert Crowe was certain that no defense could save the ruthless killers from the gallows. But the families of the confessed murderers hired Clarence Darrow, entrusting the lives of their sons to the most famous lawyer in America in what would be one of the most sensational criminal trials in the history of American justice. Set against the backdrop of the 1920s—a time of prosperity, self-indulgence, and hedonistic excess in a lawless city on the brink of anarchy— *For the Thrill of It* draws the reader into a world of speakeasies and flappers, of gangsters and gin parties, with a spellbinding narrative of Jazz Age murder and mystery.

For the New Intellectual

**Here is Ayn Rand’s first non-fiction work—a challenge to the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the “atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion” that they create.**
As incisive and relevant today as it was sixty years ago, this book presents the essentials of Ayn Rand’s philosophy “for those who wish to acquire an integrated view of existence.” In the title essay, she offers an analysis of Western culture, discusses the causes of its progress, its decline, its present bankruptcy, and points the road to an intellectual renaissance.
One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a moral philosophy—and ethic of rational self-interest—that stands in sharp opposition to the ethics of altruism and self-sacrifice. The fundamentals of this morality—”a philosophy for living on Earth”—are here vibrantly set forth by the spokesman for a new class,  *For the New Intellectual*. **
