DESCRIPTION:

Two men face off against an all-powerful navy—and the fate of the ocean’s most majestic creatures hangs in the balance.

“A gripping, brilliantly told tale of the secret and deadly struggle between American national security and the kings of the oceans.”—Bob Woodward

War of the Whales is the gripping tale of a crusading attorney who stumbles on one of the US Navy’s best-kept secrets: a submarine detection system that floods entire ocean basins with high-intensity sound—and drives whales onto beaches. As Joel Reynolds launches a legal fight to expose and challenge the Navy program, marine biologist Ken Balcomb witnesses a mysterious mass stranding of whales near his research station in the Bahamas. Investigating this calamity, Balcomb is forced to choose between his conscience and an oath of secrecy he swore to the Navy in his youth.

When Balcomb and Reynolds team up to expose the truth behind an epidemic of mass strandings, the stage is set for an epic battle that pits admirals against activists, rogue submarines against weaponized dolphins, and national security against the need to safeguard the ocean environment. Waged in secret military labs and the nation’s highest court, War of the Whales is a real-life thriller that…

DESCRIPTION:

Did you ever have to learn a hard lesson or two about friendship and true love?

Ella Cohen simply couldn’t figure out how she had become a suspect in the biggest diamond robbery of the past few years.

However, the Israeli police and the Scotland Yard were certain beyond doubt that she had stolen 40 million pounds worth of diamonds, which disappear with only one trace, an envelope with her name on it.

Many nightmarish events that she couldn’t explain preceded the arrest, she was kidnapped in the middle of London’s busy Oxford Street in the middle of the day, her car blew up moments after she walked out of it, a large sum of money was transferred to her account from an unknown source, and two thugs with a foreign accent were stalking her around the city, eventually attacking her in a dark parking lot in Tel Aviv.

Could all these events be connected to her affair with her handsome, rich, successful and very married boss?

Left with no choice but to attempt to prove her innocence, she is out to discover the truth, even if that means having to break the law in the process.

DESCRIPTION:

IS A FATHER’S LOVE STRONGER THAN THE CHAINS OF SLAVERY?

Sudan 2000…

The largest nation in Africa has become a killing field…

…two million tribal people are dead, victims of a brutal civil war or of systematic genocide, massacred by their own government. But that’s not why human rights photojournalist Ron Wolfson is risking his life there. He’s chasing a different story–investigating whispered reports of human trafficking, rumors of women and children in chains, auctioned off to the highest bidder, speculation that thousands of them disappear every day into the shadow world of modern-day slavery and are never seen again.

As Ron tracks the phantom story he knows is out there somewhere, Murahaleen guerrillas attack a small Dinka village, slaughter the inhabitants and kidnap a lone little girl to sell on the slave market. The child’s father goes after her, walks 500 miles into the North searching for her, and then forms an unlikely alliance with the American journalist.

Together, they follow a slave trail soaked in blood and tears. And together they suffer the savage retaliation of a ruthless slave trader. When the two face an unthinkable execution that will be broadcast…

DESCRIPTION:

Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals.

On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen,…

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mysterious manuscript he’s hunted for over five hundred years. He never expected a young student librarian could be the key to unlock its secrets, nor could he have predicted the danger she would attract.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid’s Taleby Margaret Atwood

BARGAIN

Available through December 22 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

The Handmaid’s Tale is not only a radical and brilliant departure for Margaret Atwood, it is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States, now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men of its population.

The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. The Handmaid’s Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.

DESCRIPTION:

A sorcerer in wax. A fugitive. Haunted by a past he cannot escape. Threatened by a future he cannot imagine.
 
Zummo, a Sicilian sculptor, is summoned by Cosimo III to join the Medici court. Late seventeenth-century Florence is a hotbed of repression and hypocrisy. All forms of pleasure are brutally punished, and the Grand Duke himself, a man for whom marriage has been an exquisite torture, hides his pain beneath a show of excessive piety.

The Grand Duke asks Zummo to produce a life-size woman out of wax, an antidote to the French wife who made him suffer so. As Zummo wrestles with this unique commission, he falls under the spell of a woman whose elusiveness mirrors his own, but whose secrets are far more explosive. Lurking in the wings is the poisonous Dominican priest, Stufa, who has it within his power to destroy Zummo’s livelihood, if not his life.
 
In this highly charged novel, Thomson brings Florence to life in all its vibrant sensuality, while remaining entirely contemporary in his exploration of the tensions between love and solitude, beauty and decay. When reality becomes threatening, not to say unfathomable, survival strategies…
