Summary:

Une prémonition conduit la jeune et indépendante Sarah à Black Diamond, un endroit qui la changera à jamais. Passé. Présent. Futur. Rien n’échappe à Sarah. Sauf ce garçon sans visage. Celui qui mène inexorablement ses pas à Black Diamond. Bientôt, s’ouvre devant elle le chemin d’une éternité bien plus sombre qu’elle ne l’aurait imaginée, car la Prophétie doit s’accomplir, quel qu’en soit le prix... même celui du sang. Retrouvez les aventures complètes de Sarah, jeune ado passionnée de voitures et de sensations fortes, et du mystérieux clan des Drake dans cette intégrale qui ne manquera pas de vous surprendre ! EXTRAIT En réalité, il existe trois types de réaction face à la révélation de ce genre de don. La première : la crainte. Il est difficile de feinter avec une clairvoyante, je lis le passé aussi aisément que l’avenir. Autrement dit, pas de secret avec moi. Malgré toute l’affection qu’ils peuvent vous porter, les gens n’apprécient pas forcément le viol de leur intimité, même s’il est involontaire. La seconde : l’appât du gain. Qui ne serait pas tenté de connaître d’avance les numéros du loto ou les réponses d’un jeu télé ? Un max de fric avec un minimum d’efforts et zéro risque de se faire coincer, le plan en or quoi. Et enfin la dernière : le scepticisme : « Toi, tu vois l’avenir ? Allez, arrête ! » Ensuite, arrivent les regards pleins de moquerie ou pire, de fausse compassion, comme si vous étiez à plaindre de devoir mentir pour que l’on vous accorde un peu d’importance. CE QU'EN DIT LA CRITIQUE "Cette série a été pour moi une magnifique découverte et un coup de coeur. Merci à toi Sandra de m'avoir permis de vivre cette histoire et d'avoir pu côtoyer des personnages qui, bien que de fiction, se sont révélés attachants ! " Rosalie, Les Reines de la Nuit, Blog "Ce qui m'a tenu éveillée jusqu'à 2h du matin, c'est la plume de l'auteur. Sandra Paillard alterne entre la narration interne du point de vue de Sarah et la narration externe du côté de James et des méchants. Je dois dire que ça change de ne pas avoir que du "moi je", et c'est tant mieux ! On voit dès le départ le ressenti de chacun, on sait dès le départ qui sont les Drake et pourquoi Sarah est une curiosité pour eux." Miyuneko, Sur le blog de Miyuneko

Summary:

Un matin vous vous levez sans vous douter une seule seconde que votre vie va être bouleversée. Il arrive parfois que le hasard vous joue un sale tour. Un matin vous vous levez sans vous douter une seule seconde que votre vie va être bouleversée. C’est exactement ce qui est arrivé à John Bleekers, et tout ça à cause d’un oncle qu’il n’a pas connu et d’une boîte à épices. Il arrive même parfois que le hasard vous joue un tel sale tour que vous en devenez une menace pour des gens haut, très haut placés. John n’aurait jamais dû se lancer à la poursuite du diamant noir ! Découvrez le destin de John Bleekers, chamboulé par un sale tour que lui joue le hasard. EXTRAIT Je n’ai pas connu Jack Bleekers. Jack était le frère aîné de mon père, un drôle de bonhomme à ce qu’on raconte dans la famille. Il avait gagné une somme d’argent énorme à la roulette, un soir à Vegas, juste comme ça en passant alors qu’il n’était même pas joueur, seulement fumeur et grand buveur devant l’éternel. Jack a passé son existence à bourlinguer et à courir après les femmes. Il est mort un soir à Los Angeles, renversé par une Continental de couleur blanche. Il paraît qu’il y avait eu un orage terrible, un véritable déluge s’était soi-disant abattu sur la ville. Le bitume était gorgé de flotte et la bagnole n’a pas réussi à freiner. Cela s’est passé à l’été 1962. Pauvre Jack, il n’avait même pas cinquante balais ! À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Muriel Mourgue est née en juin 1957. Elle vit en Lorraine où elle enseigne l’allemand. Après la parution de L’esprit voyageur aux éditions Mon Petit Éditeur, puis de Montevideo Hotel et de Green Gardenia qui sont les premières enquêtes de Thelma Vermont ; et après le pilote des enquêtes d'Angie Werther Association de malfaiteuses, voici son dernier roman d’intrigue policière.

Summary:

From the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century, the Mount Diablo Coal Field was the largest coal-producing region in California and once boasted five thriving communities. With the decline of coal mining some residents turned to ranching. Later rich deposits of sand were mined for glass and foundry use. In 1973, the East Bay Regional Park District acquired the land. Today visitors to Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve, located 45 miles east of San Francisco, can explore miles of trails, tour the Hazel-Atlas silica sand mine, and visit historic Rose Hill Cemetery.

Summary:

Kristin Uys is a tough Roodepoort magistrate who lives alone with her cat. She is on a one-woman crusade to wipe out prostitution in the town for reasons that have personal significance for her. Although she is unable to convict the Visagie Brothers, Stevo and Shortie, on charges of running a brothel, she manages to nail Stevo for contempt of court and gives him a summary six-month sentence. From Diepkloof Prison, the outraged Stevo orchestrates his revenge against the magistrate, aided and abetted by his rather inept brother Shortie and his erstwhile nanny, Aunt Magda, who believes mass action will force the powers that be to release Stevo. Kristin receives menacing phone calls and her home is invaded and vandalised. Even her cat is threatened. The chief magistrate insists on assigning a bodyguard to protect her. To Kristin's consternation, security guard Don Mateza moves into her home and trails her everywhere. Nor does this suit Don's long-time girlfriend Tumi, former model and successful businesswoman, who is intent on turning Don into a Black Diamond sooner rather than later. And Don soon finds that his new assignment has unexpected complications which Tumi simply does not understand. In Black Diamond, Zakes Mda tackles every conceivable South African stereotype, skilfully (and with the lightest touch) turning them upside down and exposing their ironies, often hilariously. This is a clever, quirky novel that captures the essence of contemporary life in Gauteng and will resonate with all South Africans.

Summary:

'Rachel Ingalls writes the kind of macabre, fantastic and haunting fiction called American Gothic... Its antecedents lie not in the hysterical 18th-century rebellion against reason, but in Jacobean tragedy, and in the complicated American relations with greed and Puritanism. Ingalls is one of the most brilliant practitioners of this Gothic since Poe... Black Diamond is a collection of five short stories, loosely linked by the theme of kinship. Ghoulish and gripping, they all begin in an atmosphere of unsophisticated tranquillity...' Amanda Craig, Independent 'The stories in Black Diamond... wrap themselves insidiously around your curiosity, and draw you with them.' Sunday Times '[Ingalls'] vision evokes a world where psychosis and extreme violence stalk the American dream.' Time Out

Summary:

It is first time that Isabella Galloway has returned to Evansville since she made her escape from her egotistical and controlling mother four years earlier. Bella would not have come now, if it were not for Leona Hodge, the woman she considered her real mother. Leona's urgent telegram informing Bella that her mother, the famous Virginia Galloway, was on her deathbed, was quite unexpected and Bella did not truly believe Virginia could be dying. When Bella left Evansville she had also left behind the love of her life, Neil Whitely, because she believed he had been unfaithful to her with none other than her own mother, Virginia. The prospect of seeing him again filled her with dread, because no matter how hard she tried to forget him, she could not. Bella traveled to France and had become a distinguished artist. By the time she returned to the United States and took a position at Carrington Academy as instructor, she considered herself truly independent. Her fear that the trip to her hometown would undo everything she had worked so hard to accomplish would only be the tip of what was to befall her as she discovers the curse of the Black Diamond Lavaliere.

Summary:

Perth and Rockingham, Western Australia were turnaround locations for uncut diamonds originally smuggled out of the Zimbabwean Marange mines and destined for secret auction in Monaco, Europe. It was an illegal operation set up by Viscount Rupert Blicksworth, an executive of the Bellerose Investissments de Monaco. He engaged Iranian arms dealer Omar Sahran to co-ordinate the operation within Australia. Sahran in turn involved two Aussie crime families, the Russo’s in Sydney and the Petri’s in Perth. The Secret Intelligence Services (SIS) in London had information that it was Blicksworth family member in Monaco who was actually handling the final stage of delivery to auction. To find out more, the SIS engaged a new operative in Monaco. On learning about Sahran’s involvement, alarm bells rang. His association with terrorists and revolutionaries sparked off memories of how he had doubled crossed the SIS over an arms deal in the Middle East. When intel about a delivery of diamonds were departing from Zimbabwe, the covert SIS interest shifted to Perth, as did their field operative and his Blicksworth contact. “Hacket.” London based controller Charles Grimshaw had said. “Keep it low profile surveillance. The Aussies aren’t being told anything so no bodies, just useful information we can use against this Baroness Blicksworth when back in Monaco.” “And Omar Sahran?” Hacket questioned and Grimshaw simply grinned. What developed after the disappearance of a small, but valuable, black diamond would crystallise allegiances and cause feuds between, not only, the Russo and Petri crime families, but also within the Blicksworth family and who would live to enjoy their accumulated wealth and title. www.mbchatelle.me.uk

Summary:

Involves a West Virginia mountaineer family, father, mother, five sons and daughter. Their complicated rise from abject poverty to become multi-millionaires through their efforts in the coal-mining industry. From a small outcrop of coal on their unproductive farm, they eventually own thirty production mines and become the largest coal corporation in the world, controlling the coal industry in West Virginia for over sixty years. Poverty stricken but ambitious, in the year 1850, Matt Mattison secretly kills Abe, a Jewish itinerant peddler, who visits his home periodically, using Abe's money to open a small drift mine on his farm. He is assisted in the venture by his five sons who are unaware of their father's sudden source of funds. (A true story). At the birth of his daughter's illegitimate son, Matt realized that his daughter, Gem, and Abe had a clandestine love affair, planned to marry and that Abe had impregnated to comely Gem. Matt conscious-stricken becomes psychotic. Gem, suspicious of her father, grieving that the father of her child had given his life for her family's prosperity, refuses any finances earned from their mining endeavors, leaves home, adverse circumstances impel her to become proprietress of the town's bawdy house. The plot involves Gem's life, embarrassing to the family but offers amusing incidents in the bordello that becomes public. Her brothers push the mining business to great success becoming powerful financially and politically. Her bastard son (known later as "A.P." in the industry), well educated but burdened by his mother's profession, becomes president of the world's largest coal corporation. Marries a socialite, interested in breeding show horses, they build pretentious mansion on 365 acres, own private railroad train, ocean-going yacht, lavish apartment in New York City. The novel follows several generations of family, involving many complications, romances, pathos of the five brothers, threatened loss of their mines through bitterly fought union strikes and devastating mine explosions. Much of this story is true and interwoven with fiction. All character names are fictitious. Interesting coal mining facts as they effect the family are included. As well as the complete portrayal of the cruel exploration of the miners as the greedy and often inhumane madness of the coal barons to accumulate excessive wealth. Now that coal is becoming an important factor in our energy crisis, this story is timely. Readers will become educated about the problems in this important industry as the story of this once poverty stricken family unfolds.

Summary:

A rollicking cozy mystery series from USA Today bestselling author A.W. Hartoin. For fans of Janet Evanovich, Tricia O'Malley, and Jana DeLeon... Would you commit a crime to save a child? Mercy Watts is off to Colorado for a ski trip with her boyfriend and his parents. She thinks her biggest problem will be pretending to be a normal girlfriend. A girlfriend that doesn't know how to pick locks and absolutely never gets her face on the national news. But a desperate friend asks a favor that cannot be refused. A child in St. Louis is in desperate need of a drug that can only be found in Colorado. The problem? It’s illegal in Missouri. The math works for Mercy and she figures she can fit a little smuggling in between trips up the lift and dips in the hot tub. Simple, right? Not quite. Before she has a chance to do much of anything, a brutal crime is committed and Mercy becomes a suspect. The cops are all over her and now she's saddled with a pint-sized partner, a stalker, and a ticking clock. All she has to do is solve a crime in order to commit a crime. A child's life hangs in the balance. No pressure.
