Possession

###
When a comatose woman suddenly wakes up and starts painting scenes she’s never witnessed with a skill she’s never had, medical science has no explanation. As more bizarre phenomena manifest, including mysterious writing appearing on the patient’s skin and strange voices issuing from her mouth, even her doctors start to wonder if the woman may be possessed.
Frustrated, frightened, and at the end of her rope, the patient’s sister reluctantly turns to Harper Blaine to discover who—or what—is occupying her sister’s body. As Harper digs into the case of apparent possession, she discovers other patients struck with the same mystifying afflictions and a disturbing connection to one of the most gruesome episodes in Washington’s history…

Paradise Lost

Milton’s Paradise Lost (Books I through XII) is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind’s destiny. The struggle rages across three worlds – heaven, hell, and earth – as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love. Marked by Milton’s characteristic erudition is a work epic both in scale and, notoriously, in ambition. For nearly 350 years it has held generation upon generation of scholars, students and readers in rapt attention and its profound influence can be seen in almost every corner of Western culture.

One Summer. America, 1927

In One Summer Bill Bryson, one of our greatest and most beloved nonfiction writers, transports readers on a journey back to one amazing season in American life.
The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop, and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris, he ignited an explosion of worldwide rapture and instantly became the most famous person on the planet. Meanwhile, the titanically talented Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, which would culminate on September 30 with his sixtieth blast, one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history. In between those dates a Queens housewife named Ruth Snyder and her corset-salesman lover garroted her husband, leading to a murder trial that became a huge tabloid sensation. Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days—a new record. The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin, a great human disaster, the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover. Calvin Coolidge interrupted an already leisurely presidency for an even more relaxing three-month vacation in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption. The first true “talking picture,” Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry. The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression.
All this and much, much more transpired in that epochal summer of 1927, and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness, eye for telling detail, and delicious humor. In that year America stepped out onto the world stage as the main event, and One Summer transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order.

Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America

HISTORY AS IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE TOLD: TRUE AND THRILLING.
**HISTORY AS IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE TOLD: TRUE AND THRILLING.**
**Thomas Edison was a bad guy- and bad guys usually lose in the end.**
**World War II radio host “Tokyo Rose” was branded as a traitor by the U.S. government and served time in prison. In reality, she was a hero to many.**
**Twenty U.S. soldiers received medals of honor at the Battle of Wounded Knee-yet this wasn’t a battle at all; it was a massacre.**
**Paul Revere’s midnight ride was nothing compared to the ride made by a guy named Jack whom you’ve probably never heard of.**
History is about so much more than memorizing facts. It is, as more than half of the word suggests, about the story. And, told in the right way, it is the greatest one ever written: Good and evil, triumph and tragedy, despicable acts of barbarism and courageous acts of heroism.
The things you’ve never learned about our past will shock you. The reason why gun control is so important to government elites can be found in a story about Athens that no one dares teach. Not the city in ancient Greece, but the one in 1946 Tennessee. The power of an individual who trusts his gut can be found in the story of the man who stopped the twentieth hijacker from being part of 9/11. And a lesson on what happens when an all-powerful president is in need of positive headlines is revealed in a story about eight saboteurs who invaded America during World War II.
*Miracles and Massacres* is history as you’ve never heard it told. It’s incredible events that you never knew existed. And it’s stories so important and relevant to today that you won’t have to ask, *Why didn’t they teach me this?* You will instantly know. If the truth shall set you free, then your freedom begins on page one of this book. By the end, your understanding of the lies and half-truths you’ve been taught may change, but your perception of who we are as Americans and where our country is headed *definitely* will.
Glenn Beck, the nationally syndicated radio host and founder of TheBlaze television network, is an eleven-time #1 bestselling author and is one of the few authors in history to have had #1 national bestsellers in the fiction, nonfiction, self-help, and children’s picture book genres. His recent fiction works include the thrillers *Agenda 21* , *The Overton Window* , and its sequel, *The Eye of Moloch* ; his many nonfiction titles include *Miracles and Massacres* , *Control* , and *Being George Washington*.

Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings

Ron Burgundy is known to all as the lead anchorman of San Diego’s award-winning Action 4 News Team and anchor of the first 24-hour news channel, GNN (Global News Network), but few know the real man behind the news desk. In  **LET ME OFF AT THE TOP! My Classy Life and Other Musings** he will share never-before-told stories of his childhood and the events that led him to choose a career in the news business. He will offer a rare glimpse behind the camera into the real life of a man many consider to be our greatest living news anchor.  In his own words, he will share personal anecdotes about the women in his life, about his dog, Baxter, and his legendary news team. Along the way, he’ll also give sage advice on a variety of topics that matter most to him. The long wait is over. Ron Burgundy pulls no punches in this widely anticipated, fully authorized tell-all autobiography.
### About the Author
Ron Burgundy is a trailblazer and icon in television journalism.  He and the Action 4 News Team will be honored at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum with an installation of mementos and keepsakes of their time and impact in San Diego that will begin in December.  On December 20, he will star as himself in Paramount Pictures’  *Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.*
### Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
**AUTHOR’S NOTE**

It took me eight years to write this book. The research alone—fact-checking, reading the source materials, asking questions—was endless and I didn’t care for it that much. I just didn’t. But I persisted because I knew what I was doing was truly very important. A book is never the work of one man. Many people contribute to its failure, or as in this case, its success. Dorathoy Roberts at the Harvard Widener Library was instrumental in recovering so many facts and nautical terms. Janart Prancer aided my work immensely with her near-encyclopedic understanding of rare manuscripts in the Herzog August Library, Wolfenbüttel, Germany. Esther Naus­baum, head librarian at the prestigious Kirkland School of Dinosaurs, was instrumental in tracking down indispensable paleoecological records for chapter 15 in this book. Herb Kolowsky was ever watchful and patient, reading over many drafts of the manuscript as well as cleaning my gutters. I con­sulted with my dear friend and lover Doris Kearns Goodwin over many breakfasts in bed. Her sharp intellect and sharper teeth found their way into practically every page. Although we are no longer lovers because I don’t know why, her knowledge of presidential history is the basis for chapter 12. Her dogged enthusiasm for the project was only outpaced by her enthusi­asm for lovemaking, which I could barely equal. I don’t know what to say about Doris really except if she’s still out there and she would like another bounce, I would be game. Johnny Bench was an invaluable spell-checker. Lars Mankike brought an artistic eye to the project and a kind of European nihilism that was completely unnecessary. We fought often and he got what he deserved, so I’m not even sure why I’m thanking him here, but it’s too late now. Sandy Duncan is full of boundless energy. What can I say about Veronica Corningstone, the love of my life? We’ve had our ups and downs for sure, and usu­ally the downs were because of something stupid she said or did while losing her blood. You really can’t fault women for being irrational. Blood drips out of them willy-nilly and there’s nothing they can do about it. It’s like being a hemophiliac. I suspect science will one day cure them of this blood-dripping disease but until then, *Vive la différence*. Finally Baxter, my dog and best friend, saw me through many tough hours as I struggled with my emotions during this proj­ect. His love and support sustained me through extremely dif­ficult excavations into my past. Only Baxter knows the pain I have lived. Our nightly talks formed the basis for what you hold in your hand now.  

**WHY WRITE THIS BOOK?**

Does mankind really need another book dumped onto the giant garbage heap of books already out there? Is there some pressing desire for the wisdom of a humble News Anchor in this world? Will it add to the great literary achievements throughout time or will it be lost in a swamp of trivial scrib­bling like pornography—devoured and then destroyed out of shame? I stand here (I write standing up) and I say, “No!” No, this book will NOT be lost! This book is necessary. It’s an im­portant work from an important man. I was the number one News Anchor in all of San Diego. My name is Ron Burgundy and what you have in your hands is a very big deal. It’s…my…life. It’s my words. It’s my gift to you.

The House of Hades

**Hazel stands at a crossroads.** She and the remaining crew of the *Argo II* could return home with the Athena Parthenos statue and try to stop Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter from going to war. Or they could continue their quest to find the House of Hades, where they might be able to open the Doors of Death, rescue their friends Percy and Annabeth from Tartarus, and prevent monsters from being reincarnated in the mortal world. Whichever road they decide to take, they have to hurry, because time is running out. Gaea, the bloodthirsty Earth Mother, has set the date of August 1 for her rise to power.
**Annabeth and Percy are overwhelmed.** How will the two of them make it through Tartarus? Starving, thirsty, and in pain, they are barely able to stumble on in the dark and poisonous landscape that holds new horrors at every turn. They have no way of locating the Doors of Death. Even if they did, a legion of Gaea’s strongest monsters guards the Doors on the Tartarus side. Annabeth and Percy can’t exactly launch a frontal assault.
Despite the terrible odds, Hazel, Annabeth, Percy, and the other demigods of the prophecy know that there is only one choice: to attempt the impossible. Not just for themselves, but for everyone they love. Even though love can be the riskiest choice of all.
Join the demigods as they face their biggest challenges yet in *The House of Hades*, the hair-raising penultimate book in the best-selling Heroes of Olympus series.

The Hit

From David Baldacci–#1 bestselling author and one of the world’s most popular, widely read storytellers–comes the most thrilling novel of the year.
THE HIT
Will Robie is a master of killing.
A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst-enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.
No one else can match Robie’s talents as a hitman…no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she’s gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.
To stop one of their own, the government looks again to Will Robie. His mission: bring in Reel, dead or alive. Only a killer can catch another killer, they tell him.
But as Robie pursues Reel, he quickly finds that there is more to her betrayal than meets the eye. Her attacks on the agency conceal a larger threat, a threat that could send shockwaves through the U.S. government and around the world.
### Review
“Baldacci is a master when it comes to writing about small-town conspiracies and a lone hero who fights against all odds to clean up corruption. The narrative moves slowly, so the reader has a chance to solve the case along with Puller. It might seem straightforward, but the final reveal will surprise even hardcore thriller junkies.”
( ** *e Washington Post *on* The Forgotten*** )

“Another fast paced page turner that will keep you glued to the couch…by an author who continues to standout in the increasingly crowded thriller field.”
( **Examiner.com on *The Forgotten** * )

” *The Innocent* is Baldacci at his absolute best…Baldacci provides the reader a non-stop pulse pounding ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat into the wee hours of the morning…Five Stars.” ( **Examiner.com** )

“This book is a definite one-day, ‘edge-of-your-chair’ read, with an ending that is a complete surprise. One of the best Baldacci’s since *Absolute Power* , this is one that will have all suspense readers enthralled.” ( ** *Suspense Magazine *on* The Innocent*** )

“Readers expect excitement and intrigue in David Baldacci’s books, and *Zero Day* is no exception…As Baldacci’s new hero narrowly escapes countless close calls, the pairing of the author’s imagination and knowledge create a wild ride for the reader. Puller is gutsy, brash and likable. Best of all, he survives to reappear in the next book of this new series.” ( ** *The Free-Lance Star *on* Zero Day*** )
### About the Author

George Washington’s Secret Six

“As a Long Islander endlessly fascinated by events that happened in a place I call home, I hope with this book to give the secret six the credit they didn’t get in life. The Culper spies represent all the patriotic Americans who give so much for their country but, because of the nature of their work, will not or cannot take a bow or even talk about their missions.”
—Brian Kilmeade

When General George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied—thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring.

Washington realized that he couldn’t beat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York. So carefully guarded were the members’ identities that one spy’s name was not uncovered until the twentieth century, and…

Friends–And Then Some

**One of acclaimed author Debbie Macomber’s classic novels, this tender story of two people daring to be more than “just friends” is available for the first time as an eBook.**
****
Lily Morrissey knows exactly what she wants in a husband: a big bank account. Not that she’s greedy or shallow; she just needs the security for herself and her beloved grandmother. But husband-hunting is harder than she expected, especially with her best friend Jake in the way. In fact, Jake—who would be perfect for her if he weren’t so committed to everything money *can’t* buy—is becoming downright distracting, with those jade eyes and that disarming grin.

All Jake wants is the freedom to sail his boat, write his stories, and live life on his own terms. Then his best friend tells him she’s going groom shopping. But Jake can’t imagine life without Lily or bear the thought of her in another man’s arms. How can a rootless guy living a no-strings existence and a woman looking for someone she can count on both get what they need? By letting their hearts choose love.

**Praise for Debbie Macomber**

“No one tugs at readers’ heartstrings quite as effectively as Macomber.” **—*Chicago Tribune ** *

“The reigning queen of women’s fiction.”* *—* The Sacramento Bee***

“It’s impossible not to cheer for Macomber’s characters. . . . When it comes to creating a special place and memorable, honorable characters, nobody does it better than Macomber.”**—*BookPage

Falling for a Stranger

From #1 NY Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes the third book in the popular Callaway Series, an emotional and suspenseful novel of love, family and dangerous secrets.
Ria is as sexy and sultry as a warm tropical night and as beautifully dangerous as the island drinks she serves at the beachside bar on Isla de los Suenos — The Island of Dreams. But Ria is not as carefree as she appears, and the pretense is wearing her down. One night she risks everything to escape from reality.
Drew Callaway is a former Navy pilot and rescue operative looking for his own escape from a life that has seen too much tragedy. Meeting Ria is like embracing the sun, and their single night together is life-changing. But the dream quickly fades when Ria is killed in a tragic accident at sea.
Months later, thousands of miles away from where they first met, Drew sees a woman who looks just like Ria. She claims her name is Tory, and that they’ve never met before, but he can see that she’s in trouble, and he can’t walk away. He’s going to save her whether she wants it or not.
Drew isn’t afraid of a little danger, but can he risk losing his heart to a beautiful stranger?

But he cannot allow either one of them to forget he is her enemy and she his pawn in the deadly Highland feud between the clans.

Venetie

Kunsthistorica Elena straalt een onschuldige schoonheid uit en weet niet wat ware passie is. De wereld van de Siciliaanse chef-kok Leonardo is er een van kunst en kleur. Met zijn komst zet hij Elena’s leven helemaal op z’n kop: haar relatie met de rustige Philippo, haar zelfbeeld en bovenal haar beleving van intimiteit. Chef-kok Leonardo laat Elena grenzen overschrijden die zij niet voor mogelijk hield. Haar leven met Leonardo wordt een ware obsessie, maar altijd geldt die ene voorwaarde: ze mag nooit verliefd op hem worden. Elena heeft geen keus, waar ze ook is: Venetië, Rome of Sicilië, ze kan niet ontsnappen aan deze man en zijn duistere verleden. Sensueel genot en kunstzinnig verlangen voor de lezers van Mijn Man en Negentig dagen Genevieve

**Recensie(s)**

Eerste deel van drie erotische romans. Hoofdpersoon is de 29-jarige Elena, kunsthistorica en restaurateur. Zij is bezig met fresco’s in een Venetiaans palazzo, als ze daar Leonardo ontmoet, een top-kok met gevoel voor kunst, kleur, smaak én vrouwen. Pas halverwege het boek valt ze voor hem, en proeft met hem alle genoegens van de liefde. Voor Leonardo is lust en passie zijn enige doel, hij wil zijn vrijheid niet verliezen. Maar is dat ook zo voor Elena? Laat ze haar oude studievriend Filippo vallen voor een gepassioneerde tijd met Leonardo? Erotische roman volgens het beproefde procédé; met alle clichés en niet bijster goed geschreven. Waarin deze roman zich toch positief onderscheidt, is de couleur locale van Venetië en de kunsthistorische achtergrond. De auteur heeft dan ook archeologie en klassieke talen gestudeerd in Venetië. Italiaanse nachten deel 2 en 3 spelen zich successievelijk af in Rome en Sicilië. Normale druk.E.Y.M. Zwanenburg

De toren van de dode zielen

In het appartementencomplex van Leo Junker, politieagent op non-actief, is een jonge vrouw vermoord. Leo is er zeker van dat er iets niet klopt aan deze zaak en gaat zelf op onderzoek uit. Ondertussen krijgt hij mysterieuze sms’jes van iemand die hem in de gaten lijkt te houden. Leo komt erachter dat het verleden niet vergeten is … Is iemand uit op wraak?
**Recensie(s)**

Eerste deel van een trilogie rond de 33-jarige Leo Junker, een op non-actief gestelde politieman van de afdeling Intern Onderzoek in Stockholm. In de daklozenopvang gevestigd in het appartementencomplex waar Junker woont, is een jonge vrouw vermoord. Junker neemt een kijkje, denkt dat er een vreemd luchtje aan de zaak zit en gaat op eigen houtje op onderzoek uit wat hem door zijn collega’s niet in dank wordt afgenomen. Zeker niet als er bij het slachtoffer ook sporen worden gevonden die naar Junker zelf lijken te wijzen. Een goed geschreven, sfeervolle, boeiende misdaadroman waarin, zoals vaak in de Scandinavische misdaadliteratuur, de maatschappijkritiek niet ontbreekt. Mooi van opzet, het verhaal, in de eerste persoon geschreven, switcht heen en weer tussen heden en het verleden waarin voorvallen uit Junkers jeugd en de gebeurtenissen in het van corruptie vergeven politiecorps die tot zijn huidige situatie hebben geleid, worden beschreven. Zo krijgt het hoofdpersonage langzaam maar zeker gestalte. Ook de spanning wordt mooi opgebouwd. De Zweedse auteur en criminoloog (1986) kreeg voor dit boek de prijs voor beste Zweedse thriller van 2013, zijn eerdere twee misdaadromans waren goed voor drie sterren in VN’s Detective & Thrillergids.Redactie
