              Radioland (Hardback)

              At its core, Radioland is a contemporary political novel. It is the story of an old man's pursuit for justice after the murder of his son and his son's wife by a white nationalist. Harry Chalberg blamed the Cal Brown Radio Show for inciting vulnerable people to commit violence ag...ainst others. After a long successful career as a prosecuting attorney for the State of Maryland, Harry Chalberg began working pro bono for the National Tolerance Law Center. He and his career long assistant Mariam Katz only devoted their senior years to make the conservative advocacy media accountable for the rhetoric broadcasted on the network. It is also a story of how money influences the definition of acceptable and unacceptable, right and wrong, and decency. How special interest and large multi-national business concerns use politicians and the courts to ensure their longevity. Austin Securities and Investments is an influential multifaceted international corporation with hundreds of billions in revenues worldwide. Hailey Austin, the co-chairman of the board has used his money / influence to create New Signal News (NSN) a conservative media conglomerate with radio and television stations from coast to coast. Worden McAllister, a think tank owned by Austin Securities, developed an idea in the mid-1980s. They used Joseph Goebbels' 1930s media influence in Germany as their model for their new programming. The intent behind the creation of NSN was to control the narrative and redirect attention when necessary, not to promote a master Arian race theory. It is the story of how Calvin Brown, a naive country young man from a small town in Breckenridge County, Kentucky, became the voice of conservative talk radio. He and his wife Mary had ambitions of somehow becoming rich. They moved to Chicago where Cal took a job at a small radio station who played nothing but smooth jazz. His deep voice with a soft Southern drawl was exactly what Andy Cole was looking for when her heard Calvin in the radio.

              A compulsive and chilling novel about subjugation, survival and the meaning of family. The car containing the four sleeping children left the earth. From the top of the wooded bluff, where the rain-slick road had curved so treacherously, down to the swollen river at the base of t...he cliff, was easily sixty feet. There was no moon that night, only low, leaden cloud clogging the sky. As if suspended, the car hung in the air for a fraction - of a fraction - of a moment . . . John Chamberlain has brought his family to New Zealand from the UK. Before he starts his new job, he takes them on a driving holiday. The car skids over the road and hurtles off a cliff. The year is 1978. In 2010 the remains of John's older son have been discovered in a remote part of the West Coast, showing he lived for four years after the family disappeared. Found alongside him are his father's watch and what turns out to be a tally stick, a piece of wood scored across, marking items of debt. How had he survived and then died? Where was the rest of his family? And what did the tally stick signify?

His agent and girlfriend, Gloria, has arranged for him to write The Philosophy of Food in Six Easy Chapters, a project he relishes but that will have to be delivered in six months. It is not going well, as P...aul finds his domestic circumstances unsuited to concentrated hard work: Gloria has now moved in with him (not specifically invited) and has brought with her two extremely vocal and demanding Siamese cats. The cats give Paul no peace. Beginning to worry that The Philosophy of Food will never be written Paul calls on the aid of his cousin, Chloe, who suggests a radical course of action. She has taken a six-month lease on a house in a French village not far from Poitiers and invites him to join her there and get the book finished in peace. He needs no second bidding and it is not long before he escapes to France. Once there, however, Paul finds his fortunes tangled up with the fate of one eating establishment in the village: the infamous Second Worst Restaurant in France ...

              The Diamond Hunter (EPUB ebook)

              By McIntosh, Fiona

              'It won't matter how many diamonds you find if you lose the love of your child.' When six-year-old Clementine Knight loses her mother to malaria during the 1870s diamond rush in southern Africa, she is left to be raised by her destitute, alcoholic father, James. Much of Clementin...e's care falls to their trusty Zulu companion, Joseph One-Shoe, and the unlikely pair form an unbreakable bond. When the two men uncover a large, flawless diamond, James believes he has finally secured their future, but the discovery of the priceless gem comes at a huge cost. A dark bargain is struck to do whatever it takes to return Clementine to a respectable life at the Grant family's sprawling estate in northern England - while the diamond disappears. Years on, long-buried memories of Clementine's childhood in Africa and her beloved Joseph One-Shoe are triggered, as she questions who she can trust. To solve the mystery of what happened to her loved ones all those years ago, she must confront a painful history and finally bring justice to bear. From the harsh desert of Africa's Kimberley diamond mine to the misty, green plains of northern England, The Diamond Hunter is a breathtaking adventure story about trust and betrayal, the ultimate quest for truth, and a love that is truly priceless.

              Talora un viaggio di ritorno puo essere l'occasione che fa rivivere il passato, oppure la cura che offre serenita alla propria anima inquieta. Sono i momenti in cui la mente rivede i giorni dell'infanzia e della fanciullezza, le estati, i giochi all'aria aperta, la famiglia e i p...arenti scomparsi. Il quartiere, dove si e trascorsa la prima parte della propria vita, riappare come una grande famiglia dove tutti sapevano tutto e ci si aiutava con affetto e rispetto umano. La citta si ritrasforma nel luogo magico che comprendeva l'intero mondo esistente, il mare era lo spazio dei sogni, la proiezione dell'avventura e della liberta. I personaggi, con i loro soprannomi quasi fiabeschi, i loro vizi, le loro qualita, i lavori artigianali, i comportamenti scanditi dalle giornate difficili del tempo passato, diventano i colori di un racconto, fatti di una storia viva e mai dimenticati. Alfredo di oggi ritorna Alfredino di una volta e compie, cosi, un viaggio nel tempo. Lo descrive col suo cuore innocente di bambino.
