2 in the Hat: A Novel of Suspense

SUMMARY:  A serial killer the cops thought was long gone.A good detective racing the clock to stop the murders.A chilling and twisty thriller that will leave readers gasping. A major spike in gang homicides has Boston on edge, leaving a growing body count of bangers in its wake and the city’s police and DA’s office scrambling to catch up. Even the mayor’s Street Saviors taskforce of ex-cons, devoted to steering kids out of the thug life, are working overtime to stop the bloodshed. But who will stop the even greater threat that’s about to descend when a murderous psychopath steps out of the past?Memories of the infamous Blood Bath Killer still loom large, especially for homicide detective Angel Alves, who helped bring down the multiple-murderer whose rampage shocked the city. So when a pair of students turn up bizarrely slain, Alves fears that another serial killer is stalking Boston. A fear that becomes fact when his ex-partner, Wayne Mooney, recognizes the murders as the work of the Prom Night Killer—whose unsolved crimes have haunted Mooney for a decade. Now, with hands-on assistant DA Conrad Darget backing them, Alves and Mooney set out to stop grim history from repeating itself. But matching wits with a twisted mind is a dangerous game. Especially when there are no rules—and your allies really may be your enemies. Mixing edgy psychological suspense, hard-boiled realism, and staccato bursts of pulse-quickening action, 2 in the Hat makes another slam-dunk winning case for Raffi Yessayan, hailed by Robin Moore, author of The French Connection, as “the best prosecutor-turned-crime-writer to hit the streets since George V. Higgins and Scott Turow.”

10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-help That Actually Works – A True Story

10% HAPPIER is a spiritual book written for – and by – someone who would otherwise never read a spiritual book. It is both a deadly serious and seriously funny look at mindfulness and meditation as the next big public health revolution. Dan Harris always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. How else can you climb the ladder in an ultra-competitive field like TV news except through nonstop hand-wringing and hyper vigilance? For a while, his strategy worked. Harris anchored national broadcasts and he covered wars. Then he hit the brakes, and had a full-blown panic attack live on the air. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events – involving a disgraced evangelical pastor, a mysterious self-help guru and a fateful gift from his wife – Harris stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: meditation. At first, he was deeply suspicious. He had long associated meditation with bearded swamis and unwashed hippies. But when confronted with mounting scientific evidence that just a few minutes a day can literally rewire the brain for focus, happiness, and reduced reactivity, Harris took a deep dive. He spent years mingling with scientists, executives and marines on the front lines of a quiet revolution that has the potential to reshape society. He became a daily meditator, and even found himself on a ten-day, silent meditation retreat, which was simultaneously the best and worst experience he’d ever had. Harris’s life was not transformed into a parade of rainbows and unicorns, but he did gain a passion for daily meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of Dan’s conversion amid the harried and decidedly non-Zen world of the newsroom, it concludes with a section for the novice on how to get started.

10 LB Penalty Review

One of the most impressive aspects of Dick Francis’s long and celebrated career (he’s won three 10 Lb. Penalty Francis adds several new arrows to his quiver. His protagonist, Ben Juliard, narrates the tale in a vivid first person that begins in his insecure late teens instead of the settled middle age of the usual Francis hero. Also, Ben’s relationship with horses is more of a fading dream than an active reality. The book begins with Ben’s expulsion from Vivian Durridge’s stables; he’s removed with a false accusation of glue sniffing. But as Ben soon discovers, it is, in fact, his powerful father’s machinations that are behind his ill fortunes. The elder Juliard is “standing for Parliament,” and the bachelor candidate needs his son by his side for a year of campaigning if he hopes to win. Ben accedes to his father’s wishes. He almost always has, but he soon finds that his “gap year”–his year before entering college–is going to be a nightmare. Orinda Nagle, the widow of the recently deceased Hoopwestern MP, and her companion, Alderney Wyvern, resist George’s campaign from the start. Then, Usher Rudd, a muckraking journalist, turns his vitriol to George. When an attempt is made on George’s life, he and his son find themselves inside a vigorous tale of suspense that takes several narrative years to sort out.

Francis’s lucid prose is the driving force in this political mystery, and the realistic rendering of the complicated father-son relationship between George and Ben adds a sophistication and weight that marks the author’s best fiction. –Patrick O’Kelley

The world would end in 1492 – so the prophets, soothsayers and stargazers said. They were right. Their world did end. But ours began.

In search of the origins of the modern world, 1492 takes readers on a journey around the globe of the time, in the company of real-life travellers, drawing together the threads that began to bind the planet: from the way power and wealth are distributed around the globe to the way major religions and civilizations divide the world. Events that began in 1492 even transformed the whole ecological system of the planet. Wars and witchcraft, plagues and persecutions, poetry and prophecy, science and magic, art and faith – all the glories and follies of the time are in this book.



From the authors of the bizarre and extraordinaryQcomes this equally bizarre and powerful thriller about the Cold War. The year is 1954. The world is divided into East and West. In Naples, Lucky Luciano is busy fixing horse-races and overseeing the creation of the global heroin trade. In Hollywood, members of Her Majesty’s Secret Service have a bizarre and dangerous mission for Cary Grant. And in Bologna, a lovelorn young barman is about to embark on a painful odyssey in search of his missing father. Bringing all of these strands and more together is a missing television set, a McGuffin Electric, an appliance with a very special secret. At once a political thriller and a touching romance, 54 features appearances by Alfred Hitchcock, Marshal Tito and the Emperor of Indochina. Wu Ming the collective formerly known as Luther Blissett have produced another tour-de-force which paints a dazzling picture of a past age while slyly commenting on our own.


SUMMARY: James Herbert transcends the horror medium with ’48, a blistering tale of post-World War II London overrun with fear and blood. Delivering not only terrifying imagery, but pulse-pounding action and historical adventure, it is destined to become a classic.It is a London Too Terrifying to Imagine. Already crippled by the relentless Nazi bombing, this once-beautiful city has been depopulated by a hideous blood plague unleashed in the final convulsive collapse of the German regime. Now, human vampires wander the rubble-strewn streets, desperately searching for the only thing that can cure them…But not all survivors have been afflicted, and Hoke — a lone hero accompanied only by his trusty dog and bitter memories — is relentlessly pursued for the clean blood that courses through his veins. Yet his flight soon takes on a different meaning as he saves two women and a former German soldier. Banding together, they flee into the city’s underground tunnels where an unexpected betrayal that delivers them right into the hands of their deadly adversaries prompts Hoke to take a stand against these monsters once and for all.”With ’48, James Herbert delivers another triumphant thriller that blends two-fisted action with the supernatural”. — Douglas E. Winter

Zwoele blikken

‘Je kunt gerust naar me kijken, hoor. Per slot van rekening ben ik een lust voor het oog.’ Een man die zoiets over zichzelf zegt kun je toch niet serieus nemen? Ook al is de man in kwestie dan Lucas Wolfe, lieveling van de pers – en precies degene die Grace Carter nodig heeft om van het gala dat ze organiseert een daverend succes te maken.
Toegegeven, hij ís een genot om naar te kijken, maar een losbol als hij zal haar hart nooit kunnen raken. Waarom blijft ze dan toch in zijn groene ogen staren, op zoek naar het bewijs dat zijn hele playboy-optreden een schijnvertoning is?

Zwichten voor een zoen

Het derde deel van Audrey Carlans verslavende, hotte nieuwe serie die zich afspeelt in een yogaschool
Voor lezers van Jessica Clare, Jennifer Probst, E.L. James, Sylvia Day
Toen yoga-instructeur Mila Mercado werd gevraagd om mee te doen aan de les van een nieuwe collega en verslag uit te brengen aan haar werkgever, kon ze niet vermoeden dat Atlas Powers, de zelfverzekerde en schandalig knappe nieuweling, haar meer te leren zou kunnen hebben dan een erotische maar omstreden vorm van yoga.
Atlas Powers heeft twee passies in zijn leven: zijn carrière in de muziek, en de begeerlijke maar onbereikbare Mila Mercado. Overdag geeft hij yogalessen om wat bij te verdienen, tot de vurige vrouw van zijn dromen zijn les binnenwandelt en een heel nieuwe dimensie verleent aan het woord ‘verlangen’…

Het Zal Je Maar Gebeuren

De bewoners van De Oudekerkstraat reageren heel verschillend als op een regenachtige middag een meisje loten verkoopt voor De Straatloterij. Laurens heeft met haar te doen en koopt 10 loten. Zijn vrouw Kitty heeft hem ingeruild. Misschien heeft hij meer geluk in het spel dan de liefde. Hansje heeft nauwelijks geld om haar nieuwe huis in te richten. Moet ze dan wel een lot te kopen? Atie houdt vanachter de vitrage angstvallig in de gaten wie van haar buren wel en wie geen loten koopt. Zelf doet ze niet mee aan die oplichterij. Gina probeert haar rechtenstudie af te ronden, maar wordt door een van de professoren wel heel vreemd behandeld. Ze koopt in een opwelling 15 loten. Rebecca staat altijd voor anderen klaar maar kan niet voor zichzelf opkomen. Als Gina vertelt dat ze veel te veel geld heeft uitgegeven aan loten, neemt Rebecca – tegen haar principes in – er een paar van haar over. Zal de hoofdprijs van De Straatloterij op De Oudekerkstraat vallen of niet? En wat zal dat betekenen voor Rebecca, voor Gina en de anderen? Margreet en Reina Crispijn beschrijven op meeslepende wijze hoe de onderlinge verhoudingen in de straat op scherp komen te staan; en hoe mensen klein maar ook groot kunnen zijn.
