Werner Lee ha degli amici, un bel lavoro, una vita tranquilla. Fa il maestro di sci sulle montagne dei Grigioni, in Svizzera. Sente di meritarlo, tutto quel bianco silenzio, dopo troppi anni in cui ha convissuto con la violenza, dopo troppo rosso sangue e troppe urla. Della sua seconda vita, quella dell'agente Damon Fletcher, nessuno può sospettare. Lui è un'arma pronta a essere innescata quando la Sezione Ghost dell'intelligence britannica prepara un'operazione illegale. È uno spettro, la cui esistenza non sarebbe mai confermata dai suoi datori di lavoro. E ora è venuto il momento di tornare sul campo. Günter Mayerhof, ex agente della Stasi riciclatosi come trafficante d'armi, sta morendo. Per decenni ha accumulato dati su intrighi politici e missioni top secret: un patrimonio inestimabile di informazioni custodito in un caveau che l'agente Ghost deve riuscire a violare. Ma è proprio là, nel sotterraneo blindato, che lo attende una sorpresa. Qualcosa che potrebbe cambiare per sempre tutto quello in cui ha creduto. ALL'INTERNO, l'approfondimento "Spie partigiane" di Maria Teresa Caprile.

This early work by S. S. Van Dine was originally published in 1935 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. 'The Garden Murder Case' is one of Van Dine's novels of crime and mystery. S. S. Van Dine was born Willard Huntington Wright in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1888. He attended St. Vincent College, Pomona College and Harvard University, but failed to graduate, leaving to cultivate contacts he had made in the literary world. At the age of twenty-one, Wright began his professional writing career as literary editor of the Los Angeles Times. In 1926, Wright published his first S. S. Van Dine novel, The Benson Murder Case. Wright went on to write eleven more mysteries. The first few books about his upper-class amateur sleuth, Philo Vance, were so popular that Wright became wealthy for the first time in his life. His later books declined in popularity as the reading public's tastes in mystery fiction changed, but during the late twenties and early thirties his work was very successful.

In this probing study of death rites, Leor Halevi plays prescriptive texts against material culture, advancing a new way of interpreting the origins of Islam. He shows how religious scholars produced codes of funerary law to create new social patterns in the cities of Arabia, Mesopotamia, and the eastern Mediterranean. They distinguished Islamic from Christian, Jewish and Zoroastrian rites; and they changed the way men and women interacted publicly and privately. Each chapter explores a different layer of human interaction, following the movement of the corpse from the deathbed to the grave. Highlighting economic and political factors, as well as key religious and sexual divisions, Halevi forges a fascinating link between the development of funerary rites and the efforts of an emerging religion to carve its own distinct identity. Muhammad's Grave is a groundbreaking history of the rise of Islam and the roots of contemporary Muslim attitudes toward the body and society.

From the bestselling author of In Her Shoes, All Fall Down and the forthcoming novel Who Do You Love, Good in Bedis a funny and tender story full of heart. Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized reporter was perfectly happy writing about other people's lives for her local newspaper.

But she loves her job, her friends, her dog and her life. She loves her apartment and her commodious, quilt-lined bed. She has made a tenuous peace with her body and she even felt okay about ending her relationship with her boyfriend Bruce. But now this... 'Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world,' Bruce has written in a national woman's magazine. And Cannie - who never knew that Bruce saw her as a larger woman, or thought that loving her was an act of courage - is plunged into misery, and the most amazing year of her life.
