WELCOME TO SOMEWHERE, OREGON Nestled in a cove on Oregon's coastline, the town of Somewhere is charming, picturesque, inhabited by townsfolk who love their community—and teeming with mystery. You are invited to join the heroes and heroines of Somewhere as they solve mysteries, discover romance, experience inexplicable phenomena, and fight injustice—just the usual stuff!  SOMEWHERE FOR A HERO TO HIDE   Is there somewhere to hide from the past?   Dutch Mulvaney, a hero who will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, now carves sea creatures from driftwood and signs them as "Beach Bum." His relocation from the East Coast to the small coastal town of Somewhere in Oregon was a desperate attempt to salvage his sanity and dignity. Now, after a year of solitude, he finally feels ready to venture back into society.   Taylor Jones enjoys her job as a waitress at Mama Pink's Diner, the most popular eatery in Somewhere. Daily, she thanks the universe for Edna Pink, the owner. Without Edna's help she could very well be six feet under, with her two precious sons being raised by a crime lord. When a disabled man enters the diner she gets a premonition that her life is about to change. Should she remain in the town she loves, or run yet again? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cate Barratt.

The summer of 1276 at Tyndal Priory is peaceful - until Kenelm’s corpse is found floating in the millpond. When Brother Thomas concludes that the murder occurred on priory grounds, Prioress Eleanor and Crowner Ralf swiftly agree to help each other solve the crime. The murder victim, a newcomer, was disliked in Tyndal village, and no one there wants one of their own hanged for the deed. Fingers quickly point to a Jewish family, refugees under the relocation provisions of King Edward’s Statute of Jewry. As riots loom and threats mount against the family, Eleanor and Ralf have little time before popular opinion rules the murder solved. Did Jacob ben Asser kill the man, or was it Gwydo, a new lay brother with an unknown past? These questions are difficult enough, but when Gytha, the prioress’ maid, joins the suspect list, the inquiry takes an even more troubling turn. Murder investigations are always grim, but this one grows as ominous as a North Sea storm. Once again, Prioress Eleanor jousts with the Prince of Darkness for the sake of justice, but this time even she wonders if unmasking the killer is a mission she wants to undertake. Priscilla Royal grew up in British Columbia and received a degree in world literature from San Francisco State University. She is a member of the California Writers Club, Sisters in Crime, and Mystery Writers of America. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wanda McCaddon.

Known as a place of refuge, Haven is a sanctuary for those with supernatural abilities. Decades of peace between the witches, vampires, goblins, elves, and orcs are coming to an end. Now the once-tranquil world is shrouded in deception and corruption. Dark secrets tear at the very fabric of their alliance, giving way to an evil that stirs in the shadows. Exhilarating and utterly gripping, the Haven series is an action-packed journey full of suspense, magic, mystery, and intrigue. A Stranger Magic (book one): Sam Dalcome thinks he is so average that no one ever notices him, until he discovers a mysterious stranger outside his home. Bewildered, he tries to uncover the stranger's intentions. But Sam is sidetracked when he and his friend, Travis, discover a secret passageway deep in the town's quarry, which leads to a hidden cavern. What they uncover next will not only change their lives forever, but will uncover the first clue to a deadly Dalcome family secret. Sam finds himself drawn into a world of mystery and magic that he never knew existed, which brings him closer to a destiny he never knew was possible. Revenge of the Viper (book two): The Great War of Haven ended 13 years ago, but Alisa Dalcome is about to discover that the war did not end for her. Placed on Earth as a sleeper agent for the Majesty of Haven, Alisa had one objective: protect the portal keys at all costs. In the wrong hands the magical keys could jeopardize the safety of everyone on Haven. But Alisa's relocation was more than just Majesty business, it was also a chance for her to escape her enemies, enemies that still wanted her dead. Alisa wasn't thinking about herself when she left Haven, she was thinking about her children, Sam and Sarah. The Great War had already taken her husband, Rylan, she would be damned if she would let it take her children too. But what Alisa didn't count on was her inquisitive son and his friend, Travis. 1.

9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Learn about the British woman who built one of the world's greatest spy networks during World War II in a fraction of the time it takes to read the actual book! Once through the Preface and Introduction sections of Spymistress, chapter one details some of the history and beginnings which shaped the early life of Vera Atkins. Beginning with her birth in Romania and telling of her relationship with her father, Max Rosenberg. Rosenberg became somewhat of a mystery to the young Atkins as he remained faithful to his Jewish name at a time when he might have been much safer claiming his lawful German status. Due to Rosenberg's advice, "There is safety in conjecture," Atkins grew up learning to be a mass of conflictions. This served her well in later life, helping to confuse her enemies. Upon her relocation to Britain, Atkins followed another piece of her father's advice when he advised her not to sign any paperwork. She created her own identity and took her maternal grandfather's surname, which he had already changed from Etkins due to anti-Semitism in Russia. Atkins, along with her mother and two brothers, was estranged from Rosenberg during the First World War, living in Germany, trapped there by the outbreak of war. They sought refuge with Rosenberg's brother, a German soldier. Once reunited, Rosenberg had the finest horsemen and marksmen teach his daughter to ride and shoot, the best dance teachers taught her to dance, and she was sent to finishing schools in France and Switzerland in the hope she would adopt the upper class sophistications which would enable her to travel through any borders. In her teens, Atkins assisted her father in helping to get Zionists, disguised as peasants, past border guards. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kay Webster.

Martin Monath
20,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A dramatisation of Martin Monath's short life (1913-1944) would need little artistic embellishment, his identity shrouded in mystery, and executed by the Gestapo - twice - the historical record reads like a detective novel. Pieced together for the first time by Wladek Flakin, this biography tells the story of the Jewish socialist and editor of Arbeiter und Soldat ('Worker and Soldier'), and his efforts to turn German rank-and-file soldiers against their Nazi officers in occupied France. Born in Berlin in 1913, Martin Monath was a child of war and revolution. In the 1930s he became a leader of the socialist Zionist youth organisation Hashomer Hatzair in Germany. Fleeing from Berlin to Brussels in 1939, he joined the underground Trotskyist party led by Abraham Leon, and soon became a leading member of the Fourth International in Europe. His relocation to Paris in 1943 saw the birth of Arbeiter und Soldat and his work organising illegal cells of German soldiers for a revolutionary struggle against the Nazis. Drawing on extensive archival research, Flakin uses letters, testimonies and unpublished documents to bring Monath's story to life - weaving a tale rich with conviction and betrayal, ideology and espionage.

The words contained within the covers of this book are intended to speak to some of life's ups and downs. Life encompasses a multitude of components that require daily maintenance and/or management.and your judgment in those areas will drive the direction of your existence. Life will, sooner or later, introduce you to the good, the bad, the ugly and everything in-between.humor, joy, sadness and the always-present mystery. The author believes the words in this book to be universal.although not universally spoken nor acknowledged. Richard's odyssey has been continuous from the denial of his rural Arkansas roots to his acceptance in 'Phase Three.' While the Greyhound bus physically transported him away from his disdain.and provided the escape from his dysfunctional family, the relocation only skewed his perspective. California was a world apart from Arkansas, and without an education and/or a craft.life would severely test the author's fortitude and determination. It would resemble a scavenger hunt as he chased his always-moving, always-fading demons for personal understanding. This book began simply enough as letters to his son (the second of two from the author's second marriage) who was/is also seeking self-understanding. The son was serving prison time for drug usage and drug-related crimes stemming from twenty years of abuse. Added to that, his son, Landon, is afflicted with epilepsy and the combination (epilepsy and heroin) can produce deadly consequences. His son's first letter not only requested that his father correspond with him, but that he fill in the gaps of his life.his words were, 'Dad, I know nothing of you before our family.' The father was taken aback.he had rarely, if ever, thought about his past life.much less verbalized it to others.
