Book Description :

A memoir of unblinking honesty and poignant, laugh-out-loud humor, Blackout is the story of a woman stumbling into a new kind of adventure -- the sober life she never wanted. For Sarah Hepola, alcohol was "the gasoline of all adventure." She spent her evenings at cocktail parties and dark bars where she proudly stayed till last call. Drinking felt like freedom, part of her birthright as a strong, enlightened twenty-first-century woman. But there was a price. She often blacked out, waking up with a blank space where four hours should be. Mornings became detective work on her own life. What did I say last night? How did I meet that guy? She apologized for things she couldn't remember doing, as though she were cleaning up after an evil twin. Publicly, she covered her shame with self-deprecating jokes, and her career flourished, but as the blackouts accumulated, she could no longer avoid a sinking truth. The fuel she thought she needed was draining her spirit instead. A memoir of unblinking honesty and poignant, laugh-out-loud humor, Blackout is the story of a woman stumbling into a new kind of adventure -- the sober life she never wanted. Shining a light into her blackouts, she discovers the person she buried, as well as the confidence, intimacy, and creativity she once believed came only from a bottle. Her tale will resonate with anyone who has been forced to reinvent or struggled in the face of necessary change. It's about giving up the thing you cherish most -- but getting yourself back in return.

Book Description :

When a time-travel lab suddenly cancels assignments for no apparent reason and switches around everyone's schedules, time-traveling historians Michael, Merope, and Polly find themselves in World War II, facing air raids, blackouts, unexploded bombs, dive-bombing Stukas, rationing, shrapnel, V-1s, and two of the most incorrigible children in all of history--to say nothing of a growing feeling that not only their assignments but the war and history itself are spiraling out of control.

Book Description :

One hot summer night in the city, all the power goes out. The TV shuts off and a boy wails, "Mommm!" His sister can no longer use the phone, Mom can't work on her computer, and Dad can't finish cooking dinner. What's a family to do? When they go up to the roof to escape the heat, they find the lights--in stars that can be seen for a change--and so many neighbors it's like a block party in the sky! On the street below, people are having just as much fun--talking, rollerblading, and eating ice cream before it melts. The boy and his family enjoy being not so busy for once. They even have time to play a board game together. When the electricity is restored, everything can go back to normal . . . but not everyone likes normal. The boy switches off the lights, and out comes the board game again. Using a combination of panels and full bleed illustrations that move from color to black-and-white and back to color, John Rocco shows that if we are willing to put our cares aside for a while, there is party potential in a summer blackout.

Book Description :

THE STUNNING SECOND WORLD WAR THRILLER FROM THE CELEBRATED SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR SIMON SCARROW 'Taut and chilling - I was completely gripped' Anthony Horowitz 'A wonderfully compelling thriller, reeking of authenticity, and a terrific depiction of the human world within the chilling world of the Third Reich' Peter James 'Pivotal moments in history; utterly authentic characters; a gripping plot. The perfect way to bring history alive' Damien Lewis Berlin, December 1939 As Germany goes to war, the Nazis tighten their terrifying grip. Paranoia in the capital is intensified by a rigidly enforced blackout that plunges the city into oppressive darkness every night, as the bleak winter sun sets. When a young woman is found brutally murdered, Criminal Inspector Horst Schenke is under immense pressure to solve the case, swiftly. Treated with suspicion by his superiors for his failure to join the Nazi Party, Schenke walks a perilous line - for disloyalty is a death sentence. The discovery of a second victim confirms Schenke's worst fears. He must uncover the truth before evil strikes again. As the investigation takes him closer to the sinister heart of the regime, Schenke realises there is danger everywhere - and the warring factions of the Reich can be as deadly as a killer stalking the streets . . . 'Scarrow has created a character who's a more than worthy successor to Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther. Blackout is a gripping, terrifying read . . . historical crime fiction at its finest' David Young

A Rio de Janeiro Thriller With no witnesses and no weapon, it seems like the case of the one-legged homeless man found lying in a cul-de-sac on São João Hill, shot through the heart, will remain unsolved. But Chief Inspector Espinosa can't shake thoughts of the hapless victim--who would target a penniless man who posed no physical threat? Focusing his incisive mind and his usual unhurried inquiry on a group of wealthy guests who dined at a nearby mansion on the rainy night of the murder, Espinosa interrogates his way into the lives of his suspects, exposing lies, cover-ups—and another murder.

Book Description :

Paul Stearns, one of the CIA's top undercover agents, has just succeeded in smuggling an East German scientist through the Berlin Wall, when suddenly Stearns falls flat on his face-literally. Stearns plunges into a coma that lasts for three days. When the CIA learns that Stearns has Remington's Syndrome, a rare neurological disease that causes its victims to have numerous blackouts, Stearns is forced to resign. Frustrated and angry, the young agent retreats to Colchester Vermont to see if he can put his life back together. It is here that Stearns meets the striking Kathleen O'Brien, the unattached assistant professor who becomes his tennis partner and lover. When a defecting KGB Colonel informs the CIA that Kurt Dietz, one of the best trained agents in the Communist world, has been ordered to assassinate a top level U.S. leader, the CIA needs their former agent's help. Why? Because Stearns is one of only three people in the entire U.S. who has actually seen Dietz face to face. In spite of his recurring blackouts, can Stearns intercept this illusive spy before he completes his assignment?

Book Description :

Aquin’s second novel was somewhat different from his first, though the concept of separatism comes in, not so much as a philosophical or political idea but mainly because the two main characters were involved in separatism. It is (deliberately) something of a mishmash. It starts in 1966, six years after the Ivory Coast had obtained its independence from France and one year before de Gaulle’s vive le Québec libre speech, which is mentioned in the book. We start off with a letter written by an Ivorian pharmacist and separatist called Olympe Ghezzo-Quénum. (I do not know whether this is deliberate but it immediately reminded me of the Beninese novelist Olympe Bhêly-Quenum.) Ghezzo-Quénum lives in Grand-Bassam. His somewhat rambling letter is written to a Quebec separatist called Pierre X Magnant (we later learn that the X stands for Xavier). He takes ten pages to get to the point -- that he would like a copy of a speech made by Magnant on separatism.

The new blockbuster from bestselling author Chris Ryan. Blackout -- three cities all lose power. No-one claims responsibility. Fears of a terrorist strike are imminent. Josh Harding is a tough SAS soldier. Yet his disregard for authority has landed him a secondment to MI6's anti-terrorism unit.

Stranded in the Wild West, Josh must rely on his instincts as a soldier and on the kindness of a beautiful stranger in order to escape those who appear intent on tracking him down and killing him -- all for a secret he can't remember.
