The Last Witness: Badge of Honor, Book 11 , Hör...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The dramatic new novel in the Philadelphia police saga by the number-one New York Times best-selling author. For Philadelphia homicide detective Matt Payne, investigating a young woman’s murder in a Society Hill home invasion uncovers an ugly underworld - that of Mexican drug cartels and the Russian mob. Foreign girls are being smuggled in to work in the sex trade, and now some of them are dying or just disappearing. The trail leads right to Philadelphia - and Payne learns that’s not all. Teenage American girls lured from local foster homes have vanished. And the lone living witness has gone into hiding. He knows it’s got to be connected - but how? And it doesn’t help that his gut says it somehow involves that high-rolling politician last seen near the Caribbean in a casino’s airplane. For Payne, finding that last witness is absolutely critical - before the Russians, the cartels, or anyone else gets to her first. Filled with authentic color and detail, this is a riveting novel of the men and women who put their lives on the line, from the cop on the beat to the commissioner himself. It’s a story of fears and dangers, courage and loyalty, genuine heroism and love - storytelling at its absolute best. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

New Orleans Confidential: Lucien Caye Private E...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Come prowl the lonely, sometimes violent streets of American's most exotic city, the city that care forgot, New Orleans, with a lone-wolf private-eye named Lucien Caye. Unlike most 40s PIs, Caye rarely drinks, doesn't smoke or wear a hat (it messes up his hair). He's six feet tall with wavy, dark brown hair and standard-issue Mediterranean-brown eyes, a sly smile and a clever mind that often gets him into trouble. Caye lives and works in the run-down New Orleans French Quarter of the late 1940s. He has a weakness for women, children and fellow World War II veterans, down on their luck. He knows how to make a decent living but often finds himself working pro-bono - in one case working to find a little girl's missing cat, in another searching for a boy's runaway father and in yet another, canvassing the Quarter for the child who wrote a note to Santa Claus, asking Santa to take him to live with the angels so his mother and father didn't have to buy food for him anymore. They don't have any money. Murder is often the name of the game and Caye sometimes leaves town in pursuit of the truth, usually aiding a pretty woman in need of help, in more ways than one. Unfortunately, the truth is often ugly, often dangerous and usually resides on the loneliest part of town. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Galloway Smith.

Eagle & Crane , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 812min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Two young daredevil flyers confront ugly truths and family secrets during the US internment of Japanese citizens during World War II, from the author of The Other Typist and Three-Martini Lunch.  Louis Thorn and Haruto "Harry" Yamada - Eagle and Crane - are the star attractions of Earl Shaw's Flying Circus, a daredevil (and not exactly legal) flying act that traverses Depression-era California. The young men have a complicated relationship, thanks to the Thorn family's belief that the Yamadas - Japanese immigrants - stole land that should have stayed in the Thorn family.   When Louis and Harry become aerial stuntmen, performing death-defying tricks high above audiences, they're both drawn to Shaw's smart and appealing stepdaughter, Ava Brooks. After the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor and one of Shaw's planes mysteriously crashes and two charred bodies are discovered in it, authorities conclude that the victims were Harry and his father, Kenichi, who had escaped from a Japanese internment camp they had been sent to by the federal government. To the local sheriff, the situation is open and shut. But to the lone FBI agent assigned to the case, the details don't add up.   Thus begins an investigation into what really happened to cause the plane crash, who was in the plane when it fell from the sky, and why no one involved seems willing to tell the truth. By turns an absorbing mystery and a fascinating exploration of race, family, and loyalty, Eagle and Crane is that rare novel that tells a gripping story as it explores a terrible era of American history. 1.

An ugly civil war has just ended in Israel. One lone woman's death in the territory belonging to the tribe of Benjamin has shocked the nation. Fathers, brothers, and sons joined the army to demand justice. The guilty must pay for such a crime, and so they have. As everyone is left picking up the pieces, Benjamin has lost the most. Cities are burned to the ground, and Benjamin itself is in danger of disappearing. The once mighty tribe has been reduced to a mere 600 men.  As the nation grieves over the possible loss of a tribe, a strange solution is set forth. Word comes down—God has approved it. At the yearly celebration in Shiloh, any man of Benjamin who can capture a woman can keep her. These brides will be the foundation of a new, chastened Benjamin. Aksah worries, even as she joins in the dances, that her pretty and foolish younger sisters may be just careless enough to be caught. She tries to celebrate as she mourns the loss of her older brother, one of the casualties of this bitter conflict. She is not ready to forgive any of Benjamin for the ugliness that caused the war.  Eliab hides with his fellows in the vines and waits for the signal to rush the dances. He is not particular. He will take whichever woman lags behind, and he will do his part to rebuild his tribe. And the lovely woman who spots their signal seems to be running right into his trap.  He does not expect her to be willing, but neither does he expect to capture a woman with the will and courage to fight him every step of the way, who knows the reason for the war, and will carry the memory of the poor murdered woman at the core of the bloodshed all by herself if need be until the last man in Benjamin can prove his worth.  It is just Eliab's troublesome lot that he must bear that burden, because his new wiife will not give in until he can demonstrate he is deserving. 1.

Letts Rip!

Throughout the New Labour years - that decade of deceit, that era of wretched wriggle - the Daily Mail's Quentin Letts has maintained a lonely, vehement vigil. Like a lone clay pigeon shot squinting through his sights at a sky black with targets, he has fired his daily bullets at the poseurs and pooh-bahs of British public life. John Prescott? BANG! Alan Sugar? BANG BANG! Peter Mandelson, Harriet Harman, and the Commons Speaker Letts nicknamed 'Gorbals Mick'? Bullseyes - every single one. In this collection of anguished and often snortingly funny political sketches and journalism, Letts lets off more steam than a Chinese laundry. The modern Establishment won't like it. They tried to gag him. Smear him. Even tried to get him fired. Quentin Letts: The man they could not silence. As his wife will be the first to tell you. Praise for Quentin's previous books: 'I salute Mr Letts's one-man stand against the ugly and brainless Bog-Folk.' Daily Mail '[Quentin Letts] discharges his duty with flair and tracer precision...an angry book, beautifully written.' The Spectator

Does your organization have a mission statement that is listed on your website, hanging in a pretty frame in your reception area, or sitting in a drawer somewhere? If you wonder why you spent so much time, money, and aggravation to develop a mission statement that really is not relevant to the work you do every day, you need to read Goodbye Mission Statement; Hello Purpose: How to Harness Purpose as Your Most Powerful Management Tool. In this groundbreaking book, Cate Cardwell asks us to step out of the box and take a leap of faith that might seem drastic for executives who were taught, 'You have to have a mission statement, and you have to plaster it everywhere you can!' Goodbye Mission Statement; Hello Purpose forces you to look at the what, where, how, who, and why of what you do and to focus on your organizatin's real purpose! And, to use this purpose to guide all your management decisions. This radical book will lead you through: Understanding mission versus vision versus values versus purpose Defining the components of organizational purpose Applying organizational purpose to your organization This book just might make you change the way you do business. And you will be glad you did! Cate provides a thought-provoking examination of some well-known company's mission statements and gives examples of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Her real-life examples form the business and nonprofit world make this book a must-read for entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and business executives. About the Author Cate Cardwell loves the premise of management. The expectation that a lone person would take on responsibility for corralling the talent, energy, and good will of even a single dynamic, unpredictable employee-one with unique abilities, interests, ambitions, motivators, and outside life-let alone groups of them, is quite the challenge! And she embraces this challenge with joy, humor, and practical solutions. Thirty-some years of managing in a wide variety of industries has persuaded Cate that any organization can be set up so that it pretty much manages itself-not in spite of, but because of those unique employees. Further, she has observed how the setting-up process itself unites organizational members through common purpose and joint effort. The result is a workplace that stimulates, engages, satisfies, and uses its leaders and staff members well. As head of her consulting firm, WonderOrganizations, Cate teaches clients how to become effective, confident, fearless managers. She envisions a world in which employed people everywhere wake up each day looking forward to going to work. Cate has an MA in communication and organization development from Bowling Green State University.
