  • Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel

    It is a tale of ghosts, of madness, of revenge - of old alliances giving way to new intrigues. Denmark is changing, shaking off its medieval past. War with Norway is on the horizon. And Hamlet - son of the old king, nephew of the new - becomes increasingly entangled in a web of deception - and murder. Beautifully performed by actor Richard Armitage ("Thorin Oakenshield" in the Hobbit films), Hamlet, Prince of Denmark takes Shakespeare’s original into unexpected realms, reinventing a story we thought we knew.

    Robert McCammon brings the hero of his previous novel, Matthew Corbett, to 18th-century New York, where a killer wields a bloody and terrifying power over a bustling city carving out its identity - and over Matthew's own uncertain destiny.

Who snuffed out the good man's life with the slash of a blade on a midnight street? The local printmaster has labeled the fiend "the Masker," adding fuel to a volatile mystery...

When her husband of more than 20 years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband.

    If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin's masterwork - the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time - warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire. This volume is a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's Game of Thrones.

    Story

    If you're a true Game Of Thrones fan this is a good read but you should already know most of this book. I've read all five books twice and watched the series three or four times. With all that being said i still learned more about the 7 kingdoms. This book is a great feel in as we all wait for the 6th book to come out and we all know that HBO or the millions of fans out there won't make George R.R. Martin write faster. The one thing Martin does do in this book is he sets up the prequel for the New HBO series!!!! This book really tells you all about the Targaryen blood line and all the family trees and the wars to win the throne. If Martin feels to finish book 6 and 7 before the HBO last seasons starts, this is always a new route they can go. One things for sure-nobody can get enough Game Of Thrones!!!!

    In keeping with the parable style, Patrick Lencioni begins by telling the fable of a woman who, as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of a dysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed as a team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions for overcoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corrupt teams. Succinct yet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those struggling with the inherent difficulties of leading a group.

    In July 1995, San Jose Mercury-News reporter Gary Webb found the Big One - the blockbuster story every journalist secretly dreams about - without even looking for it. A simple phone call concerning an unexceptional pending drug trial turned into a massive conspiracy involving the Nicaraguan Contra rebels, L.A. and Bay Area crack cocaine dealers, and the Central Intelligence Agency.

    Story

    This is a true story about how one reporter uncovers the CIA involvement in a lot of bad things!!! One phone call leads Gary Webb into the Dark Alliance of the CIA the Contras and the LA crack explosion. To think the CIA is to blame for bringing most of the crack in the late 70's and early 80's to the US for the resale to buy guns for the Iran Contra Affair. Guns and crack to fund a war thousands of miles away. It's all true and it's all in the transcripts and nobody wanted to know!!! Thanks to Gary Webb we probably know half the truth!! Good book and i can't wait to watch the movie To Kill the Messenger...

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

A great love story that falls apart after years of marriage and not having kids.Amy and Nick are meant to be together. She moved from the fast city lights to slow moving suburban living at the home Nick grew up at and it still doesnt help.Only the love of Amy and the anniversary scavenger hunt will keep this couple and town together!!! Fatal Attraction at its best and its never what you or the cops think...
