The trail from a major theft at the Banco Central de Chile in Talcahuano following the Great Chilean Earthquake of May 22, 1960 leads to Base Bernardo OHiggins, a wind- and snow-swept Chilean Army outpost on the North Antarctic Peninsula. When Chilean Army 1SGT Leonardo Rodrguez fails to return from a seal hunt in the waters around the base, two Chilean Navy non-commissioned officers, CWO Raul Lucero and CPO Eduardo Bellolio, become LCDR Cristian Barbudos´ prime theft and murder suspects. Fearing he will die, Barbudo reveals the identity of his two suspects to visiting scientist Ted Stone, thereby placing Stones life in jeopardy. But who can Stone trust with this information, if it comes to that, to see justice done? This story is a work of fiction based on real events that took place between 1958 and 1965. It is a tale of greed, betrayal, and murder - one in which the listener is given a window into the frozen world at the bottom of the Earth that few people ever will hear about, much less experience. Among other things, it explores why, though seemingly unfair, bad things happen to good people; how the battle between good and evil can change forever even the most innocent person; and most of all, the role deception plays in nature, man, and life. 1.

This is how it’s done. This is why it’s done this way. This is the result you can expect if you do it.These three pieces of information inform a conclusion about every part of each of our lives.

How do the French manage to raise well-behaved children and have a life! Who hasn´t noticed how well-behaved French children are - compared to our own? - How come French babies sleep through the night? - Why do French children happily eat what is put in front of them? - How can French mums chat to their friends while their children play quietly? - Why are French mums more likely to be seen in skinny jeans than tracksuit bottoms? Pamela Druckerman, who lives in Paris with three young children, has had years of observing her French friends and neighbours, and with wit and style, has written a memoir that is ideally placed to teach us the basics of parenting a la francaise.
Can you remember that one time you got recognized or someone thanked you for your contribution to their life? You were a rock star, even for just one second. This book isn´t about a charmed path to success or some untouchable fairy tale that nobody can relate to - this is about going from rock bottom to rock star, something that everybody can relate to. In his first book, Blair shared the brutally honest story of how he went from an at-risk youth sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a shack to a self-made multimillionaire by his early 20s. As his story became a national sensation, fans started asking him how they, too, could become entrepreneurs, take their careers to the next level, and achieve financial freedom. Rock Bottom to Rock Star answers those questions. Blair has battled extreme obstacles: life as a former gang member, balancing a demanding career with single parenthood, building and selling multiple companies, and making and losing tens of millions of dollars (sometimes all in one day). He wants to help others avoid the mistakes he made in the school of hard knocks, so he has compiled his unique advice for going from rock bottom to rock star in whatever field you choose to pursue. Much of his advice is counterintuitive and definitely not what you would learn in business school. Here´s one example: ´´Don´t believe your own hype. The moment you start celebrating, you´ve left the stage. It wasn´t celebration that made you a rock star. It was hard work.´´ If you´re serious about making the most of your life and you´re ready to become the ´´rock star next door´´ instead of just looking up to them, this may be the most rewarding book you´ll ever hear. 1.

Control. Aidan Harrison likes it. Needs it. As CEO of the hugely successful Celtic Goddess franchise, he wields it as skillfully in the boardroom as he does the bedroom. It´s made him millions and put him at the top of his game. He wants for nothing. Except a woman who is more interested in him than his bottom line. As a close friend of the Callaghan family, he´s witnessed the croie phenomena seven times over in as many years. Dare he hope that by shedding his public persona, he might find a soul mate of his own? A woman capable of taking his inner beast and leaving his wealth, power, and prestige? Everything about Mary O´Rourke is average. Brown hair, brown eyes, average height and weight. There is absolutely nothing remarkable about her, except her compassion. She has spent her entire life taking care of others: her father, her husband, her man-crazy mother. She wishes that just once, someone would take care of her. When a gorgeous stranger suddenly appears New Year´s Eve, she´s not sure what to think. He´s a walking contradiction. Aidan does things to her no man has ever done, and she likes it. But can she trust him with her heart? Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aiden Snow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/008777/bk_tant_008777_sample.mp3.
