E Is for Evidence: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery, H...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Kinsey Millhone, P.I. is a 32-year-old, twice-divorced ex-cop with an irreverent, wise-cracking style reminiscent of Philip Marlowe, and a great pair of legs, who piles her trade in the small Southern Californian town of Santa Theresa. Make no mistake about it, Kinsey Millhone is one tough cookie. When a routine insurance claim she's investigating turns into non-routine trouble, someone has put $5,000 in her usually not-too-flush checking account and made it look like she's on the take, Kinsey sets out to discover who has set her up and why. The trail of evidence leads to the wealthy Wood family, which includes the three quirky sisters Olive, Ash, and Ebony. But she's not counting on the involvement of her long-departed ex-husband #2, who's gorgeous, seductive, and also a junkie. And she's certainly not counting on murder. 1. Language: English.

In this entertaining and surprisingly moving autobiography, Timmy shares his journey through TV stardom, cycling the Camino and his passion for art. In the spring of 2018, as the ‘Beast from the East’ hit northern Europe, Timmy needed every bit of his natural exuberance. He had undertaken to cycle 2,500 miles from his home to Santiago de Compostela in memory of his brother Martin, who was born with Down’s syndrome and had died just a few days earlier. This was a journey of exploration, honouring Martin’s outlook on life that everyone can reach their potential. And so, with his painting gear strapped to his bike, Timmy (an increasingly renowned artist) set off. He was blessed by letters of support from the Archbishop of York, the Bishops of Oxford and Winchester, the then Prime Minister Theresa May, Prince William and President Macron of France. Full of unexpected moments, Timmy’s account of his pilgrimage along a route travelled by so many over the centuries weaves together history and biography in a hugely entertaining manner. It is undergirded by a touching faith and conveys, beyond all else, how important it is to live every moment of every day.  Featuring a Foreword by Michaela Strachan. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Timmy Mallett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lbrk/000648/bk_lbrk_000648_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Candidate: Jeremy Corbyn's Improbable Path ...

Nominated for the 2017 Bread & Roses Award for Radical Publishing.In June 2017, an earthquake shook the very foundations of British politics. With Labour widely predicted to suffer a crushing defeat in the general election, Jeremy Corbyn instead achieved a stunning upset - a hung parliament, the humiliation of Theresa May's government, and more than 40 percent of the vote.   A lifelong and uncompromising socialist, Corbyn had, against all expectations, been dramatically elected leader of the party in September 2015. In the space of less than two years, he had progressed from 200-to-one outsider for the Labour Party leadership to become an apparent Prime Minister-in-waiting.   How these events came about is the subject of Alex Nunns' highly listenable and richly researched account. Drawing on firsthand interviews with those involved in the leadership and general-election campaigns, including Labour's most senior figures, Nunns traces the origins of Corbyn's ascent. Giving full justice to the dramatic swings and nail-biting tensions of an extraordinary moment in UK politics, Nunns' telling of a story that has received widespread attention but little understanding is as illuminating as it is entertaining. Selected by The Guardian as one of the best politics books of 2016, this updated edition includes a new introduction and an extensive afterword that brings an extraordinary story right up to date. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Passage to Faith is book one in The Faith Today Trilogy series.Passage to Faith explores current scientific evidence supporting the case for the existence of a creator God. It draws on dozens of historical testimonies of individuals who had encounters with a supreme being which influenced them to change their lives, and sometimes the world, for the better. Taking the listener on an evidence-based tour through the cosmos, Lee, qualified in the fields of the philosophy of futures studies, theology, literature and education, reveals a stunning degree of indwelling intelligence and beauty on display throughout the universe and on Earth. He then traces the common ground between the creation account in Genesis in the Bible and scientific cosmology, the Big Bang theory and Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity.Lee discusses the faith of a wide range of people from different eras and disciplines to reinforce the conviction that God’s redeeming power actively intervenes not just in nature but in history. These examples include, among others, figures from history like Joan of Arc, Nelson Mandela and Barack and Michelle Obama, scientists and mathematicians like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Faraday, Mendel, Pasteur, Pascal, George Washington Carver, Dr Wernher von Braun, Professor Christiaan Barnard and Francis S. Collins, missionaries like John Wesley, Mother Theresa, Dr David Livingstone, Dr Albert Schweitzer, and Jackie Pullinger, singers, entertainers, and actors such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Glen Campbell, Alice Cooper, Gary Cooper, John Wayne, Alfred Hitchcock, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, and Bear Grylls, men and women from the sports arena like George Foreman, Novak Djokovic, Simona Halep and Siya Kolisi, as well as astronauts such as Dr. Buzz Aldrin, David Randolph Scott and Gene Cernan. 1.

Fighting With the Filthy Thirteen: The World Wa...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 2004 the world was first introduced to The Filthy Thirteen, a book describing the most notorious squad of fighting men in the 101st Airborne Division (and the inspiration for the movie “The Dirty Dozen”). In this long awaited work one of the squad’s integral members - and probably its best soldier - reveals his own inside account of fighting as a spearhead of the Screaming Eagles in Normandy, Market Garden, and the Battle of the Bulge. Jack Womer was originally a member of the 29th Infantry Division and was selected to be part of its elite Ranger battalion. But after a year of grueling training under the eyes of British Commando instructors, the 29th Rangers were suddenly dissolved. Bitterly disappointed, Womer asked for transfer to another elite unit, the Screaming Eagles, where room was found for him among the division’s most miscreant squad of brawlers, drunkards, and goof-offs. Beginning on June 6, 1944, however, the Filthy Thirteen began proving themselves more a menace to the German Army than they had been to their own officers and the good people of England, embarking on a year-of ferocious combat at the very tip of the Allied advance in Europe. In this work, with the help of Stephen DeVito, Jack provides an amazingly frank look at close-quarters combat in Europe, as well as the almost surreal experience of dust-bowl-era GI’s entering country after country in their grapple with the Wehrmacht, finally ending up in Hitler’s mountaintop lair in Germany itself. Throughout his fights, Jack Womer credited his Ranger/Commando training for helping him to survive, even though most of the rest of the Filthy Thirteen did not. And in the end he found the reward he had most coveted all along: being able to return to his fiancée Theresa back in the States. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Allen Nelson.

All Out War: The Full Story of How Brexit Sank ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Politics was turned upside down during 2016. This book by Sunday Times political editor Tim Shipman is the first to tell the full story of how and why Britain voted to leave the European Union and how the vote shattered the political status quo. Based on unrivalled access to all the key politicians and their advisors - including Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, George Osborne, Nigel Farage and Dominic Cummings, the mastermind of Vote Leave - Shipman has written a political history that reads like a thriller and offers a gripping day-by-day account of what really happened behind the scenes in Downing Street, both Leave campaigns, the Labour Party, Ukip and Britain Stronger in Europe. Shipman gives his listeners a ringside seat on how decisions were made, mistakes justified and betrayals perpetrated. Filled with stories, anecdotes and juicy leaks, the audiobook does not seek to address the rights and wrongs of Brexit but to explore how and why David Cameron chose to take the biggest political gamble of his life and explain why he lost. This is a story of calculation, attempted coups, individuals torn between principles and loyalty. All the events are here - from David Cameron's pledge to hold a referendum through to the campaign itself, his resignation as prime minister, the betrayals and rivalries that occurred during the race to find his successor and the arrival of Theresa May in Downing Street as Britain's second female prime minister. All Out War is an audiobook about leaders and their closest aides, the decisions they make and how and why they make them as well as how they feel when they turn out to be wrong. It is about men who make decisions that are intellectually consistent and - by their own measure - morally sound that are simultaneously disastrous for themselves and those closest to them. It is about how doing what you know has worked before doesn't always work again. Most of all it is about asking the question 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rupert Farley.

Lobositz to Leuthen
37,99 € *

In 1751, at the age of 22 and then a law student, Horace St Paul had, as he described it, ¿a difference¿ with an older man over the favour of a lady. This ¿difference¿ resulted in the death of the older man in an impromptu duel to which there were no witnesses. The investigating coroner directed that St Paul should stand trial for willful murder. With no confidence in the outcome, St Paul fled to France where such affairs of were looked on in a different light. He declined to return home to England to stand trial and was outlawed. St Paul was a handsome young man who was possessed of considerable social graces and received a liberal allowance from his father. From France, he moved to Brussels, where he was accepted at the Court of Prince Charles of Lorraine, Governor-General of the Austrian Netherlands and brother-in-law of Maria Theresa, the Empress Queen. In 1756 Frederic II of Prussia invaded Saxony thereby precipitating a general war in Europe. Prince Charles of Lorraine confidently expected to be appointed to the chief command of the Austrian army, once it was fully mobilised. The Prince thought sufficiently well of St Paul to offer him a post at his side as aide-de-camp and sent him to join Marshal Browne, then commanding in Bohemia, as a volunteer to learn something of soldiering. St Paul joined Marshal Browne shortly before the Austrain army advanced to attempt to relieve the Saxons, then besieged at Pirna. Having no regimental duties St Paul kept a journal of the day to day operations of the Austrians, thereby learning his new trade. He was present at the first major action of the war at Lobositz. The following year, now in the suite of Prince Charles of Lorraine, St Paul was present at the great battle outside Prague and was subsequently besieged in that city. He was also in a position to gather eyewitness accounts of other actions ¿ notably that at Kolin ¿ as he accompanied the victorious Austrian forces on their advance from Bohemia into Silesia while the King of Prussia was away seeking to prevent the armies of France and the Empire from re-conquering Saxony. Once in Silesia the Austrian army besieged and stormed the great fortress of Schweidnitz and then crushed the remains of the Prussian army ouside Breslau and captured that Capital city. Nike, the capricious Goddess of Victory, had crowned the triumphant Austrians. Nemesis, the Goddess of Retribution, had other ideas. One month after his stunning victory over the French and Empire forces at Rossbach, King Frederic of Prussia hurled his outnumbered and weary troops against the Austrians at Leuthen just ouside Breslau. The Journal of St Paul is a day by day account. He is not shy to write ¿Nothing happened¿, also when the action is hottest he can be understandably brief. As a man learning his trade, he often records details of almost arcane significance. As his original editor George Grey Butler noted: ¿This is not history, but it is the stuff from which history is written.¿ Accompanying the text are a detailed Gazeteer and Lists of Persons and Regiments indicated in the text as well as 232 plates of maps and plans on which the reader can follow the operations described. This is a landmark work in the history of the Seven Years War. A continuation of this Journal, describing the Campaigns from 1758 to 1760, is in preparation.
