Book Summary:

The award-winning author of The Information Officer and The Savage Garden returns with a riveting, stylish thriller set in Europe, on the cusp of the World War Two. Luke Hamilton, a junior air intelligence officer at the British Embassy in Paris, appears to have luck on his side. Mysteriously orphaned in England as an infant, he was nurtured by a kind nun, Sister Agnes, and later adopted by a caring, wealthy couple. Now, the year is 1937, and, in Paris, Luke thrives amid the climate of intrigue, caused by the looming international trouble. Luke is taken off guard, however, when word reaches him that Sister Agnes has been brutally murdered. Before Luke has a chance to leave for the funeral, he finds himself hotly pursued as the target of an assassination attempt. A clear case of mistaken identity-or so it first appears. In this lightning-paced historical thriller, Mark Mills transports readers to a continent sliding towards war. As Luke is hunted from Paris to Venice by relentless, cunning killers, he gradually comes to learn the reason he is being pursued lies deep in a past that predates his abandonment as a baby on the steps of the orphanage...to an act of revenge gone wrong twenty-five years ago. "A grand adventure, in the tradition of Graham Greene's 'entertainments,' and John Buchan's before that." - Joseph Finder, New York Times bestseller author "The best novel I read this year. Where Dead Men Meet is an exhilarating and hair-raising charge through pre-war Europe... A powerful tale of revenge, love, and self-discovery." - Mark Pryor, author of The Paris Librarian "..[A]n elegantly plotted mystery...Superb period drama." -The Sunday Mirror (UK) "Reminiscent of Eric Ambler's brilliant thrillers of the 1930s...close to matching him in page-turning readability." -The Sunday Times (UK)

Book Summary:

Do you need to develop flexible software that can be customized quickly? Do you need to add the power and efficiency of frameworks to your software? The ADAPTIVE Communication Environment (ACE) is an open-source toolkit for building high-performance networked applications and next-generation middleware. ACE's power and flexibility arise from object-oriented frameworks, used to achieve the systematic reuse of networked application software. ACE frameworks handle common network programming tasks and can be customized using C++ language features to produce complete distributed applications. C++ Network Programming, Volume 2, focuses on ACE frameworks, providing thorough coverage of the concepts, patterns, and usage rules that form their structure. This book is a practical guide to designing object-oriented frameworks and shows developers how to apply frameworks to concurrent networked applications.

Book Summary:

"Anecdotal, eccentric but wholly enchanting and wisea lovely book by a lovely man."-Bernard Crick, Independent "Profound, funny, modest and necessary."-Philip Oakes, Times Literary Supplement "An excellent writeressentially timeless."-John Gross, Sunday Telegraph "The perfect elegiac postscriptnot only arresting but original."-Anthony Howard, Sunday Times Part meditation, part commonplace book, First and Last Things is an attempt by a writer of great distinction and strong convictions to take stock of his beliefs and values. Here, Richard Hoggart considers the big questions without shortchanging readers with easy answers. He examines problems (as he sees them) of faith; the mysterious origins of conscience; the importance of family and friends; the value of literature; the nature of memory; and the need, in old age, to find some value in existence. To these issues, and many others, the author brings a lifetime of rich experience and a mind well stocked with the best that has been written by those who have gone before. What emerges above all in this work is Richard Hoggart's love of, almost obsession with, quotations from great authors, especially, of course, Shakespeare. He muses on the business of capitalism and democracy, noting a reluctant conclusion that democracy is the least worst form of government, and that capitalism is its inevitable partner, but one which democratic societies should treat with "a very long spoon." He argues that market and consumer driven societies are inevitably led to relativism, head-counting, and populism. The result is a book that is introspective without being self-absorbed, that is thought-provoking but never preaching, that is, profound without being portentous. First and Last Things is a work that the young should read, if only to discover how much there is still to understand, and one that the old will treasure. Richard Hoggart was educated at Leeds University. Later, as professor of modern English literature at Birmingham University, he founded the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies. He has authored or edited twenty-seven books, including Between Two Worlds: Politics, Anti-Politics, and the Unpolitical, The Uses of Literacy, and The Tyranny of Relativism, all available from Transaction.

Book Summary:

Tracing the the potential of sound, infrasound, and ultrasound to access anomalous zones of transmission between the realms of the living and the dead. For as long as recording and communications technologies have existed, operators have evoked the potential of sound, infrasound, and ultrasound to access anomalous zones of transmission between the realms of the living and the dead. In Unsound:Undead, contributors from a variety of disciplines chart these undead zones, mapping out a nonlinear timeline populated by sonic events stretching from the 8th century BC (the song of the Sirens), to 2013 (acoustic levitation), with a speculative extension into 2057 (the emergence of holographic and holosonic phenomena). For the past seven years the AUDINT group has been researching peripheral sonic perception (unsound) and the ways in which frequencies are utilized to modulate our understanding of presence/non-presence, entertainment/torture, and ultimately life/death. Concurrently, themes of hauntology have inflected the musical zeitgeist, resonating with the notion of a general cultural malaise and a reinvestment in traces of lost futures inhabiting the present. This undead culture has already spawned a Lazarus economy in which Tupac, ODB, and Eazy-E are digitally revivified as laser-lit holograms. The obscure otherworldly dimensions of sound have also been explored in the sonic fictions produced by the likes of Drexciya, Sun Ra, and Underground Resistance, where hauntology is virtually extended: the future appears in the cracks of the present. The contributions to this volume reveal how the sonic nurtures new dimensions in which the real and the imagined (fictional, hyperstitional, speculative) bleed into one another, where actual sonic events collide with spatiotemporal anomalies and time-travelling entities, and where the unsound serves to summon the undead.

Book Summary:

The first edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations was published in 1941 and for over 70 years this bestselling book has remained unrivalled in its coverage of quotations past and present. The eighth edition is a vast treasury of wit and wisdom spanning the centuries and providing the ultimate answer to the question, 'Who said that?' Find that half-remembered line in a browser's paradise of over 20,000 quotations, comprehensively indexed for ready reference. Lord Byron may have taken the view: 'I think it great affectation not to quote oneself', but for the less self-centred the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations provides a quote for every occasion from the greatest minds of history and from undistinguished characters known only for one happy line. Drawing on Oxford's unrivalled dictionary research programme and unique language monitoring, over 700 new quotations have been added to this eighth edition from authors ranging from St Joan of Arc and Coco Chanel to Albrecht Dürer and Thomas Jefferson. New sayings from across the ages include 'It would not be better if things happened to men just as they wish' (the classical writer Heraclitus), 'Fight on, and God will give the Victory' (the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison), and 'The future is already here—it's just not evenly distributed' (the writer William Gibson).

Book Summary:

Elspeth Marr (1871-1947) - also known as Aunt Epp - was the great-great-aunt of acclaimed author Christopher Rush, who only knew her for two brief years before her death. Long after Aunt Epp passed away, Christopher's mother discovered the boxes of papers and diaries written by Aunt Epp to an unnamed 'young girl' in her life, which now make up Aunt Epp's Guide For Life. Aunt Epp penned her life lessons, which form a fascinating glimpse of Victorian life, over sixty years. Sassy and opinionated, Aunt Epp was not afraid to voice her views and give her advice on topics ranging from adultery to wrinkles God to genitals and the uses of sperm to 'softening of the member'. In a time when mentioning such things would be deemed unladylike and improper Epp leaves nothing unsaid. It is a true testament to the changing times that Epp's guide can now be published, enjoyed and put to use by everyone - and that even by today's standards, no question is too squeamish for Epp's shrewd commentary.

Book Summary:

Shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize for best biography 2016 Book of the Year 2015 Sunday Times Book of the Year 2015 Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year 2015 Evening Standard Book of the Year 2015 New Zealand Listener Shortlisted for the Slightly Foxed Best First Biography Prize 2015 Literary Sensation, Lover, Libertine, Family Man Award-winning novelist and towering figure of the 20th century British literary landscape, David Garnett was a Bloomsbury insider ultimately pushed to the margins. In this, the first biography of Garnett, (known as Bunny), author Sarah Knights – who has had unprecedented access to Garnett's papers – goes beyond stereotype and myth to present a clear sighted account of this often contradictory figure. Trained as a scientist, Garnett worked as a novelist and wrote exquisite prose. Lady into Fox was made into a Rambert ballet and Aspects of Love into an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. In the First World War, he was a conscientious objector whereas in the Second he worked for British intelligence. A free love enthusiast, he nevertheless married. He loathed literary criticism but became a leading literary critic. Born into the Victorian period, Garnett's life spanned two World Wars, the Swinging Sixties and beyond. From pre-Revolutionary Russia, by way of Indian Nationalists in London and carefree Neo-Paganism, Garnett's early life was packed with adventure. Propelled by a desire to be constantly in love, he dazzled men and women, believing the person mattered, irrespective of gender. An overnight literary sensation in the 1920s he was at the centre of literary London. Confidante and mentor of many writers, T. E. Lawrence, Rupert Brooke, D. H. Lawrence, Joseph Conrad and H. G. Wells, were among his friends. Garnett felt most at home with the Bloomsbury Group, in particular with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, his lover, with whom he lived during the First World War. Their long friendship was threatened, however, when Garnett's cradle-side prophecy to marry their daughter Angelica came true. David 'Bunny' Garnett is brought to life by Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Jack Davenport in the BBC series 'Life in Squares'.

Book Summary:

One of the untold stories of World War II, “The Paradise War” is about gold. French gold. Three-hundred-fifty tons of bullion dispatched by man-of-war to the French West Indies when the Nazis overran the mother country in the spring of 1940. A goodly portion of the wealth of France, the gold was secreted behind the walls of an ancient fortress on the island of Martinique. There it lay in the early years of the war while Nazi U-Boats prowled the Caribbean and the island braced for invasion, a treasure far too tempting to resist. When America entered the war in December of '41, Martinique was the gateway to the West Indies, the Gibraltar of the Caribbean. French warships were bottled up in the Bay of Forte de France, invasion plans were being drawn up by British and Americans, and with the gold smoldering in the hills, the island was a hotbed of confusion and intrigue. Enter Dante O'Shea, US Navy Captain, sent to Martinique to seek out the mysterious "Skipjack," an enigmatic islander who has uncovered a plot to hijack the gold. Enter also Oberleutnant Viktor Reinmann, special envoy of German Admiral Karl Doenitz and a young submariner seeking more than gold in this balmy island paradise. Meet Christopher Delon, a French castaway with a volatile secret of his own and Nikole Rollet, physician and artist, who knows the island and its secrets better than the drawing rooms of her native Normandy. And last but not least, meet Lillette Bonnier, the youthful courtesan who may hold the key to the survival of them all.

Book Summary:

While Downriver contains the English urban pastoral and hymns to the Northern deities for which Sean O’Brien is justly celebrated, the poet has always been more a singer than even his many admirers have sometimes conceded: here, that lyric note is sounded more openly than ever before. With Downriver, his fifth collection, O’Brien has produced his most various and mature work yet. This is a poetry of both delicacy and gravity, assuagement as well as agitation, rivers that start in hell but later fall as rain – and will only strengthen his reputation as one of the most gifted English poets at work today.

On the face of it, her death was accidental, but deputy police chief Tom Hollis - an incomer from New York - is convinced the truth lies in the intricate histories and family secrets of Amagansett's inhabitants. Meanwhile the enigmatic Labarde is pursuing his own investigation.

I remember all about that scene and that moment as freshly now as if the affair had happened last night. The dead man lying in the crushed grass--his arms thrown out helplessly on either side of him--

In the summer of 1942, Max Chadwick is the British officer charged with manipulating the news on Malta to bolster the population’s fragile esprit de corps, as the small windswept island endures relentless Axis air raids. The fiercely independent Maltese, and a few broken-down fighter planes, are all that stand in the face of Nazi occupation and perhaps even victory—for Malta is the stepping-stone the Germans need between Europe and North Africa. When Max learns of the brutal murder of a young island woman—along with evidence that the crime may have been committed by a British officer—he knows that the Maltese loyalty to the war effort could be instantly shattered. Max must investigate the murder—beyond the gaze of his superiors, friends, and even the woman he loves—as the clock ticks down toward all-out invasion.

I didn't want this story to end!"--Reese Witherspoon "Painfully beautiful."--The New York Times Book Review For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens. Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

Book Summary:

With the same unique vision that brought his now classic Mars trilogy to vivid life, bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson boldly imagines an alternate history of the last seven hundred years. In his grandest work yet, the acclaimed storyteller constructs a world vastly different from the one we know. . . . “A thoughtful, magisterial alternate history from one of science fiction’s most important writers.”—The New York Times Book Review It is the fourteenth century and one of the most apocalyptic events in human history is set to occur—the coming of the Black Death. History teaches us that a third of Europe’s population was destroyed. But what if the plague had killed 99 percent of the population instead? How would the world have changed? This is a look at the history that could have been—one that stretches across centuries, sees dynasties and nations rise and crumble, and spans horrible famine and magnificent innovation. Through the eyes of soldiers and kings, explorers and philosophers, slaves and scholars, Robinson navigates a world where Buddhism and Islam are the most influential and practiced religions, while Christianity is merely a historical footnote. Probing the most profound questions as only he can, Robinson shines his extraordinary light on the place of religion, culture, power—and even love—in this bold New World. “Exceptional and engrossing.”—New York Post “Ambitious . . . ingenious.”—Newsday

It’s a case—her first—that fills Henrie O with grave misgivings, especially when she arrives on Chase’s private island off the South Carolina coast to meet the players in this deadly drama. Among Prescott’s unstable young wife, his sullen stepson, and his toady of a secretary, she has trouble narrowing the field of suspects—even when a second attempt is made on Chase’s life. As Henrie O unearths a will and fascinating new evidence, a killer hurricane sweeps up from Cuba, threatening to maroon them in this vacation hell . . . where the trappings of luxury are put to lethal use and the secrets of the past have the power to engulf them all.

Book Summary:

After optimistically traveling to Australia to participate in the gold rush, Cole decides to return home when his efforts prove to be unsuccessful. Disappointed, Cole boards the same ship he sailed to Australia on, feeling cheated that not much had changed in his life. However, as the voyage home stretches on, it seems patience is all Cole needed. When he first met Eva Denison, a young woman being escorted back to London by her step father, Cole thought little of her. Though, as the two start to talk more and grow closer, a romance blossoms between the two. Unfortunately, the pair are given little chance to explore it when they discover that the ship harbored a dangerous secret. When a tragic accident leaves Cole as seemingly the sole survivor, he returns to London, shaken and ready to put that chapter of his life behind him. But when suspicions start to form about the incident, Cole realizes that his survival was all part of a complex and dubious plot.

With these accommodations, this edition of Dead Men Tell No Tales crafts an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original drama and suspense of E.W Hornung’s work.
