A wonderfully rich and evocative biography of the great war photographer, Robert Capa, whose life was every bit as dramatic as the pictures he took.A Hungarian, Capa was driven from his country by political oppression and became the greatest war photographer of his generation with his work during the Spanish Civil War. His work during WWII made him a legend as he covered many of the significant moments of the war, crossing the Atlantic with the first convoys, enduring the London Blitz and following the Allies through North Africa, Italy and then the liberation of France. Founder of Magnum, he was one of the earliest casualties of what would become the Vietnam war, being killed in IndoChina in 1954. Friend of Hemingway, Gary Cooper, Gene Kelly, John Huston, lover of Ingrid Bergman, he is one of the great figures of the twentieth century. 'A tale rich with intrigue, love, lust, lies and betrayal...I loved this book' Janine di Giovanni 'Ambition, integrity and courage were intertwined in Capa, as Alex Kershaw persuades in this elegant biography ...a spellbinding portrait of his gypsy life.' Sunday Times 'Packed with good stories, and snappily written, Blood and Champagne is as full of life as the man it celebrates.' Observer 'Remarkably fine' Daily Telegraph

A New York Times Notable Book and “thoroughly gripping” historical mystery: On a ship packed with Irish immigrants, one passenger is a killer (People). In the bitter winter of 1847, leaving an Ireland torn by famine and injustice, the Star of the Sea sets sail for New York. On board are hundreds of refugees, some of them optimistic, many more of them desperate. Among them are a maid with a devastating secret, the bankrupt Lord Merridith accompanied by his wife and children—and a killer stalking the decks, hungry for the vengeance that will bring absolution. This journey will see many lives end, while others begin anew. Passionate loves are tenderly recalled, shirked responsibilities regretted too late, and profound relationships shockingly revealed. In this spellbinding tale of tragedy and mercy, love and healing, the farther the ship sails toward the Promised Land, the more her passengers seem moored to a past that will never let them go. “O’Connor’s luscious book brews the suspense of a thriller with the scope and passion of a Victorian novel—seasoned in authentic historical detail and served up in language that is equal parts lyrical and gritty.” —Booklist “Engrossing . . . will hold historical fiction fans rapt.” —Publishers Weekly

He walked the dark streets while his tortured thoughts turned over and over in his mind. What had he been thinking? She had been almost eager to go with him and it had only been after they entered the empty park that her heart had begun to race and doubt started to seep into her mind. After she had seen the way he looked at her. She had sensed something was wrong and he had smelled her fear which only fueled his desire. His need for her blood almost overwhelmed him. He could taste it sweet and heavy. He could feel it rushing over his tongue and through his veins. His arms trembled with the need to hold her against him, pin her to his body until her struggles ceased and she was limp and cold. Somehow through all of that he had resisted. But just barely. The man that was still very much a part of him wanted to love her and be loved by her, to protect her but the monster, the blood thirsty, soulless being wanted her life. He had fought against it and won. This time. He had left quickly, left her wondering what was wrong with him. He was wondering as well. What was he going to do? What could he do? Leaving this town, leaving her seemed impossible to him. He didnt feel he could survive without seeing her, hearing her heartbeat in his ears but to stay meant he had to tell her what he was. It was only fair he just didnt know if he could. He pictured her clear blue eyes widening as she backed away from him. He could see the look of pure revulsion on her perfect face and hear her screams echoing through the night. It had begun to rain. Fat drops pounded against him as he continued to walk, continued to search for an answer. Three hours later and he was still undecided. His footsteps echoed in the stillness as he walked soaked to the bone.

Love places these matters in context against the broader background of endemic civil war, contemporary religious culture, and the many responsibilities imposed upon Henri by his royal rank and political role. Blood and Religion concludes with a close analysis of Henri's conversion to Catholicism in July 1593, including the king's crisis of conscience as he struggled to secure his crown and preserve his soul. Love's fresh interpretations of the influence of religion on Henri IV's political and military choices challenge much of modern scholarship on this important French monarch and cast new light on the motivations and worldview of sixteenth-century sovereigns in an age when religion and politics were inseparable.

In the author's previous novel, Spider Song, Marci Gray makes a cameo appearance as an enigmatic woman who drifts into Keene, New Hampshire, and six months later drifts away again. In her wake she leaves many unanswered questions. Who was she? Where had she come from? Where had she gone? Arid why? Allison Recalled picks up her trail and follows her to the small town of Jordan, Ohio. Driven by a growing need to understand her past, and aided by a slender clue indicating Jordan as her birthplace, she settles into the community and initiates a search for the first four years of her life. Jordan seems to dream through the rich autumn season, as innocent as a painting. In those first days, Marci can almost feel that she has stepped into the scene. She locates a charming cottage to rent; she is befriended by one of Jordan's most influential citizens; she meets and quickly becomes involved with a lovely woman. Yet almost immediately a darker side is revealed. As Marci pursues her investigation and begins to discover a history of crime and deception, the sleeping dogs of the past are roused. In an ever-escalating show of force, threats are made, vile pranks are played. Eventually, people die. Moving inexorably towards its bitterly ironic conclusion, ALLISON RECALLED explores the themes of revenge and forgiveness, the price one may pay for truth, and the dark wonders of the twisted strands of good and evil, which occupy the human heart.

The story is set mainly in and around Boston, with some action taking place in Brighton Beach, Coney Island. A female torso is discovered buried on Middlesex Fells. A sergeant at the local county precinct knows there are wider implications and asks the Boston Police Department for assistance. The case is passed to Sergeant Investigator Lynden Deller and his detective team, Hilly Marsden and Glynn Taylor. Deller's friend is the Deputy Coroner, Mason Bridger, and he carries out the autopsy. His preliminary report tells Deller that the torso may at one time have been a gynandromorph and had been surgically corrected'. Both men assume the amputations were carried out to hide the identity of the woman but the killer, or killers, has made a mistake. The woman has had a breast augmentation at some point in her past and the implants carry serial numbers. Lynden Deller is an unusual man. His ancestors, from Boston, England, were among the first settlers in Massachusetts. He hails from a very wealthy, Brahmin background and his brother, Charles, runs the family's multi-million dollar financial corporation. Deller and his sister Nell are totally different in character to their older brother in that they have turned their back on the wealth and dedicated themselves to assisting in the public good. Nell is an immunologist and bacteriologist and devotes most of her time abroad among the afflicted of the Third World. Their mother, Andrea, is a social butterfly who judges no-one harshly and loves her children equally. She runs charity events and donates her time to raising money and giving a good deal of her own. Her husband, Deller's father, died of a stroke in his early fifties. Miller Killaine is a billionaire but is descended from poor Irish immigrant stock. The Killaine Corporation, the legal one, own all types of businesses across America and beyond. He also heads a secretive, shell corporation whose illegal activities have been in operation for more than a century. He hates the Brahmin stock. His son, Emmet, is a different individual, having been moulded by his gentle mother. Emmet was engaged to the girl, Charlotte Alverdia, in Mason Bridger's refrigerated drawer. He does not know straight away that his father had the girl killed after she told Emmet her most guarded secret and he broke their engagement. When she left she took with her a family heirloom, an engagement ring valued at almost $2,000,000, and some papers that tell of a secret only Miller Killaine and one other person know. He will remove anyone to keep that secret. Problems arise when the ring and papers are not returned by Charlotte's killers and they demand a ransom for the jewellery and the papers. Killaine has to hire more thorough men to hunt down those who dared to doublecross him. From there the hunt for Killaine's possessions becomes more convoluted as the months pass. There are others involved, such as a gang of Romani Bulgarians and a man by the name of Russian Peter, who are on Killaine's payroll. These men are all dangerous but none is more dangerous than Killaine's most trusted contract operator. He was originally Polish and his real name was Zadufin. (FIN to those who can afford to pay for his services.) When he escaped Poland, he took his dead brother's name as a mark of respect and love. Before he left, and after his father was the cause of his brother's death, he cut the old man's throat and made Polish black sausage with the blood and spices; just the way his father had shown him. He has made the sausage many times since; in Denmark, Canada and America. He lives on a bluff on Martha's Vineyard in a house that looks across Nantucket Sound. He is the only man that Miller Killaine fears. Emmet meets Nell at a fund raiser run by his father at Garavogue, the family mansion. The Deller family are guests along with 300 other wealthy donors. Emmet and Nell eventually fall for one another but Nell is

A political biography of Darre, appointed National Peasant Leader and Minister of Food and Agriculture in 1933. Argues that his ecological ideas are still worthy of attention despite his racism. Although he believed in eugenics and Nordic racism, he did not emphasize their antisemitic aspect until after joining the Nazi Party in 1930, when he began to speak of the Jews as leaders of the capitalist urban threat to rural Germany and of an international Jewish conspiracy. He opposed anti-Jewish boycotts and delayed the Aryanization of Jewish land until 1940, not wanting his land reform program to be controlled by Nazi antisemitism. Although he was excluded from policy decisions after 1939, and dismissed in 1942, Darre was tried as a war criminal in 1949 and found guilty of participation in the Aryanization program and of expropriation of Polish and Jewish farmlands during the resettlement of ethnic Germans.

"Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg (1 April 1815 ? 30 July 1898), simply known as Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative German statesman who dominated European affairs from the 1860s to his dismissal in 1890 by Emperor Wilhelm II. In 1871, after a series of short victorious wars, he unified most of the German states (whilst excluding some, most notably Austria) into a powerful German Empire under Prussian leadership. This created a balance of power that preserved peace in Europe from 1871 until 1914."--Wikipedia.

Using a unique approach of weaving anthology with a continuous commentary, Hot Blood and Cold Steel describes what it was really like to live and fight in the trenches during the Great War.Domestic life on the line - accommodations, food and drink, wiring and carrying, the whole day and night routine - are investigated along with the operational aspects of trench life - raiding and patrolling in no-man's-land and the German lines. But as well as the blood and gore of battle, the book examines the attitudes of front line soldiers, officers and their men, to each other; to the staff; to their allies and the enemy; to wounds; to God; to the sheer horror of it all.This all encompassing portrayal of the front line grips the reader and refuses to let go, communicating a genuine understanding of what it was really like to have fought in the trenches of the Western Front
