A Town Like Alice

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ERIC LOMAX Jean Paget is just twenty years old and working in Malaya when the Japanese invasion begins. When she is captured she joins a group of other European women and children whom the Japanese force to march for miles through the jungle – an experience that leads to the deaths of many. Due to her courageous spirit and ability to speak Malay, Jean takes on the role of leader of the sorry gaggle of prisoners and many end up owing their lives to her indomitable spirit. While on the march, the group run into some Australian prisoners, one of whom, Joe Harman, helps them steal some food, and is horrifically punished by the Japanese as a result. After the war, Jean tracks Joe down in Australia and together they begin to dream of surmounting the past and transforming his one-horse outback town into a thriving community like Alice Springs…

A Tour of C++

The C++11 standard allows programmers to express ideas more clearly, simply, and directly, and to write faster, more efficient code. Bjarne Stroustrup, the designer and original implementer of C++, thoroughly covers the details of this language and its use in his definitive reference, *The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition*.
In ** *A Tour of C++* **, Stroustrup excerpts the overview chapters from that complete reference, expanding and enhancing them to give an experienced programmer–in just a few hours–a clear idea of what constitutes modern C++. In this concise, self-contained guide, Stroustrup covers most major language features and the major standard-library components–not, of course, in great depth, but to a level that gives programmers a meaningful overview of the language, some key examples, and practical help in getting started.
Stroustrup presents the C++ features in the context of the programming styles they support, such as object-oriented and generic programming. His tour is remarkably comprehensive. Coverage begins with the basics, then ranges widely through more advanced topics, including many that are new in C++11, such as move semantics, uniform initialization, lambda expressions, improved containers, random numbers, and concurrency. The tour ends with a discussion of the design and evolution of C++ and the extensions added for C++11.
This guide does not aim to teach you how to program (see Stroustrup’s *Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ *for that); nor will it be the only resource you’ll need for C++ mastery (see Stroustrup’s *The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition*, for that). If, however, you are a C or C++ programmer wanting greater familiarity with the current C++ language, or a programmer versed in another language wishing to gain an accurate picture of the nature and benefits of modern C++, you can’t find a shorter or simpler introduction than this tour provides.

A Touch of Death

The score would be an easy one—if it weren’t for the women involved

Out of work and dead broke, Lee Scarborough is a long way from his days as a football hero when he meets the sunbathing Diana James—an innocent-looking creature with a plan to make a fortune. A few months’ back, her lover embezzled $120,000 from a bank, but disappeared before she could get her hands on the cash. The police think he’s fled the state, but Diana is sure he’s dead, and knows who killed him: his wife, Madelon Butler, a sadistic drunk who is capable of anything. The cash is inside Madelon’s house, waiting to be stolen a third time, and all Diana needs is a patsy. Scarborough fits the bill.

The plan sails along smoothly until Scarborough meets Mrs. Butler. By the time his luck runs out, he’d rather face a dozen hulking linebackers than these two beauties, who have been driven to a frenzy by jealousy, greed, and lust.

Total Recall

**One of the most anticipated autobiographies of this generation, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s *Total Recall* is the candid story by one of the world’s most remarkable actors, businessmen, and world leaders.**
THE GREATEST IMMIGRANT SUCCESS STORY OF OUR TIME
**His story is unique,** and uniquely entertaining, and he tells it brilliantly in these pages.
**He was born in a year of famine,** in a small Austrian town, the son of an austere police chief. He dreamed of moving to America to become a bodybuilding champion and a movie star.
**By the age of twenty-one,** he was living in Los Angeles and had been crowned Mr. Universe.
**Within five years,** he had learned English and become the greatest bodybuilder in the world.
**Within ten years,** he had earned his college degree and was a millionaire from his business enterprises in real estate, landscaping, and bodybuilding. He was also the winner of a Golden Globe Award for his debut as a dramatic actor in *Stay Hungry*.
**Within twenty years,** he was the world’s biggest movie star, the husband of Maria Shriver, and an emerging Republican leader who was part of the Kennedy family.
**Thirty-six years after coming to America, **the man once known by fellow bodybuilders as the Austrian Oak was elected governor of California, the seventh largest economy in the world.
He led the state through a budget crisis, natural disasters, and political turmoil, working across party lines for a better environment, election reforms, and bipartisan solutions.
With Maria Shriver, he raised four fantastic children. In the wake of a scandal he brought upon himself, he tried to keep his family together.
**Until now,** he has never told the full story of his life, in his own voice.
**Here is Arnold, with total recall.******

Tortilla Flat

EDITORIAL REVIEW: Collected here for the first time in a deluxe paperback volume are six of John Steinbeck’s most widely read and beloved novels-*Tortilla Flat, The Red Pony, Of Mice and Men, The Moon Is Down, Cannery Row*, and *The Pearl*. From Steinbeck’s tale of commitment, loneliness, and hope in *Of Mice and Men*, to his tough yet charming portrait of people on the margins of society in *Cannery Row,* to *The Pearl’*s examination of the fallacy of the American dream, Steinbeck created stories that were realistic, rugged, and imbued with energy and resilience.

The Torso

“The scenes in which Huss tracks her killer through the underbelly of Copenhagen are as good as Louise Welsh’s similarly creepy tour of Glasgow in The Cutting Room.”—*Entertainment Weekly*

“[Tursten] is a master at setting the scene, detailing a foreign milieu until it feels familiar. She juggles a large cast of characters with aplomb.”—*Time Out Chicago*

“One of the better examples of the Swedish crime fiction invasion.”—*Baltimore Sun*

“Outstanding.”—*Publishers Weekly* (starred review)

“Spins a good story . . . this is a solid police procedural.”—*Library Journal*

Part of a human torso washes up on a beach near Göteborg, Sweden. It is so mutilated that gender is only established by DNA testing. A similar crime, now several years old, remains unsolved in Denmark. Detective Inspector Irene Huss is dispatched to Copenhagen to liaise with police. Then a third corpse is discovered. This time it’s identified. It is a girl Detective Huss knew; she had been asked by the girl’s mother to locate her missing daughter. A fourth victim, the son of a woman heading the Copenhagen crime squad, is also known to Huss. She fears the killer is tracking her, killing people with whom she is connected. There is even a chilling suggestion that he or she is one of her colleagues.

Helene Tursten has been compared to P.D. James in her native Sweden. Her Irene Huss mysteries have been highly praised. She lives in Göteborg, where she was born in 1954.

Have you been drawn to the dark side of the web?
Do you long for the days when anonymity on the web was the norm rather than the exception?
Do you want to experience the web away from all prying eyes and experience real online freedom?
Do you want to learn to play safely in the deep web?
**If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this book will provide you with the answers you’ve been looking for!**
The deep web is one of the last true bastions of freedom on the internet. It is the place that few search engines dare to tread. It is exciting and has a true air of mystery about it. But it’s also a place that not too many people know how to access.
If you value your online privacy, Google is clearly not the answer. Just take a moment to think about everything that Google already knows about you. And, here’s a hint – it’s more than just your location and birthday. Google gathers information about you with every search you make. Which means it knows how you like your pizza and probably also your shoe size. But is there an alternative? You’ve probably heard it whispered about in hushed tones – the dark web. But how do you access it? Can you even access it if you aren’t a serious geek? How do you navigate it safely? Can you really protect your privacy when you are online at all?
Now I’m going to let you in on a secret – you can keep your anonymity on the web. You don’t have to know how to run elaborate software to delete all your tracks. All you need is a simple program. It’s free, it’s super-simple to install and run and you can use it today. TOR will do it all for you – it acts as an intermediary so that you don’t have to divulge your personal information when you are online. And then it routes your online activity through a number of different secure nodes making it really difficult to track.
Could it really be that simple? Despite what you see in the movies, yes it can. But you do need to know the rules. You need to know how the system works and how to get it to work for you. This book is going to show you how to do that. You will learn how to make your first forays into the deep web. And hold your horses, it will be a fun ride. The deep web is totally different from your normal internet. You need to know how to get it to give up its secrets. But, once you do, you will have a blast.
The deep web can seem like a dark and scary place, but it doesn’t have to be. With this book, you will learn how to find the information you are looking for, what to do if you do happen on an illegal website and what you need to do to make the experience as simple and safe for you as possible. This is web-surfing as it was meant to be – unfettered and completely free.
In this book we will look at:
* Staying Anonymous on the Deep Web
* What the TOR network is
* Whether or not TOR is the answer for you
* How to get started with TOR quickly and safely
* How to stay completely anonymous with TOR
* How to surf the dark web safely
