The shockingly audacious conclusion to the international bestselling phenomenon that began with Maestra. If you can't beat them - kill them First there was Maestra. Then there was Domina. Now - there is Ultima. Glamorous international art-dealer Elizabeth Teerlinc knows a thing or two about fakes. After all, she is one herself. Her real identity, Judith Rashleigh, is buried under a layer of lies. Not to mention the corpses of the men foolish enough to get in her way. But now, caught in the murderous crossfire between a Russian Mafia boss and a corrupt Italian police detective, Judith is forced to create an even more daring work of art - a fake masterpiece she must take to the world-famous auction house where she used to be a lowly assistant and sell for $150 million. For Judith the prospect of putting one over her loathsome former employer and the world's art establishment is almost as thrilling as the extreme sex she's addicted to - especially when the price of failure is a bullet in the back of the head. But exposing her new identity to the glare of the spotlight puts her at risk of an even greater danger. Like a beautiful painting stripped of its layers of varnish, something altogether different could be revealed. A truth about her past even Judith might find shocking.

It seems Judith's become involved with more than just one stolen painting, and there is someone else willing to kill for what's theirs. From St. Moritz to Serbia, Judith again finds herself maneuvering the strange landscapes of wealth, but this time there's far more than her reputation at stake. How far will Rage take Judith? Far enough to escape death? The second installment in an unforgettable trilogy, Domina is the next sexy, ruthless, and decadent thriller from mastermind L. S.

Literary ombudsman John Crace never met an important book he didnt like to deconstruct.From Salman Rushdie to John Grisham, Crace retells the big books in just 500 bitingly satirical words, pointing his pen at the clunky plots, stylistic tics and pretensions to Big Ideas, as he turns publishers golden dream books into dross. In the grand tradition of Tom Lehrer and Stan Freberg, Crace takes the books that produce the most media hype and retells each story in its authors inimitable style. Philip Roth, Don Delillo, Margaret Drabble, Paul Auster, Alice Sebold, John Updike, Tom Wolfe, Ruth Rendell, A.S. Byatt, John LeCarre, Michael Crichton and Ian McEwan all emerge delightfully scathed in this book that makes it easy to talk knowingly about books youve never bothered to read or, for that matter, should have.

For fans of Gillian Flynn, Scott Smith, and Daniel Woodrell comes a gripping, suspenseful novel about two mysterious disappearances a generation apart. INTERNATIONAL THRILLER WRITERS AWARD WINNER AND BARRY AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST FIRST NOVEL • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BOOKPAGE The town of Henbane sits deep in the Ozark Mountains. Folks there still whisper about Lucy Dane’s mother, a bewitching stranger who appeared long enough to marry Carl Dane and then vanished when Lucy was just a child. Now on the brink of adulthood, Lucy experiences another loss when her friend Cheri disappears and is then found murdered, her body placed on display for all to see. Lucy’s family has deep roots in the Ozarks, part of a community that is fiercely protective of its own. Yet despite her close ties to the land, and despite her family’s influence, Lucy—darkly beautiful as her mother was—is always thought of by those around her as her mother’s daughter. When Cheri disappears, Lucy is haunted by the two lost girls—the mother she never knew and the friend she couldn’t save—and sets out with the help of a local boy, Daniel, to uncover the mystery behind Cheri’s death. What Lucy discovers is a secret that pervades the secluded Missouri hills, and beyond that horrific revelation is a more personal one concerning what happened to her mother more than a decade earlier. The Weight of Blood is an urgent look at the dark side of a bucolic landscape beyond the arm of the law, where a person can easily disappear without a trace. Laura McHugh proves herself a masterly storyteller who has created a harsh and tangled terrain as alive and unforgettable as the characters who inhabit it. Her mesmerizing debut is a compelling exploration of the meaning of family: the sacrifices we make, the secrets we keep, and the lengths to which we will go to protect the ones we love. Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. “[An] expertly crafted thriller.”—Entertainment Weekly, “The Must List” “Haunting . . .

Her prose will not only keep readers turning the pages but also paints a real and believable portrait of the connections, alliances, and sacrifices that underpin rural, small-town life. . . .

Switters is a contradiction for all seasons: an anarchist who works for the government; a pacifist who carries a gun; a vegetarian who sops up ham gravy; a cyberwhiz who hates computers; a man who, though obsessed with the preservation of innocence, is aching to deflower his high-school-age stepsister (only to become equally enamored of a nun ten years his senior). Yet there is nothing remotely wishy-washy about Switters. He doesn’t merely pack a pistol. He is a pistol. And as we dog Switters’s strangely elevated heels across four continents, in and out of love and danger, discovering in the process the “true” Third Secret of Fatima, we experience Tom Robbins—that fearless storyteller, spiritual renegade, and verbal break dancer—at the top of his game. On one level this is a fast-paced CIA adventure story with comic overtones; on another it’s a serious novel of ideas that brings the Big Picture into unexpected focus; but perhaps more than anything else, Fierce Invalids is a sexy celebration of language and life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Resumen: La vida de Sofa del Carmen representa la problemtica y desarrollo de la mujer y los pases del tercer mundo donde las grandes potencias los dejaron para lograr su egoistica superacin y a la vez sacaron fruto de todos ellos. Sofa del Carmen es un ser especialmente humano, simple, que ama profundamente, sufre profundamente pero posee la gracia ms preciosa que cualquier Ser puede poseer: Fe en Dios y a travs de Dios en ella misma, ella cae, se levanta y sigue hacia delante con la esperanza puesta en El que todo lo puede pero colaborando da a da en la forma ms sencilla con la obra ms maravillosa del Creador: El Ser humano. Educando el ser humano, siendo una humilde maestra de educacin elemental y por su espritu de generosidad, Sofa fue cause de transformacin no solo de todos los que pasaron por sus aulas, sino tambin de todos los que los rodeaban, sus padres, sus familias, sus pueblos. Desde su niez enfrentando y viviendo en sociedades machistas, restringidas, conservativas, fue capaz de avanzar y aunque con dificultad algunas veces, -debido a las presiones de las instituciones que guan nuestras sociedades-, logra abrir su mente y aceptar los cambios que por su intrnseca naturaleza se abren al paso del desarrollo humano. Sin embargo, Sofa experimenta la frustracin de todos nuestros pueblos cuando despus de haber logrado realizar un arduo trabajo, en minutos todo puede ser destruido por la violencia que muchas veces crece con nuestra misma naturaleza humana, como crecen la cizaa y la buena yerba.

"The Last Grain" is a testimony about a journey my family experienced, a painful trek through sexual and emotional abuse and even through the valley of the shadow of death when my sister took her own life. These two traumatic experiences (sexual abuse and suicide) carry so much social stigma as to constrain most to silent suffering. It is my prayer that readers will be drawn out of their pain onto a path of healing. I invite the reader to join me and begin his or her own journey of healing as it provides opportunity for biblical application and journaling of their own story. The reader that may be one who feels victimized by abuse of any kind or knows someone who has experienced abuse. As you read the book, it is my prayer that you would transition to understanding that pain is a part of the fabric of who we are and makes us capable of comforting others because of that experience. Readers who have lost a loved one to suicide will also be encouraged by the insights from our family's experience. The basic themes I hope the reader will carry away from the experience of this journey will be the following: 1. We each have a story of wounds. 2. Our wounds need to be shared transparently. 3. Wounds can heal with forgiveness Walking victoriously with our scars can bring encouragement and hope to others.

“Game-changing . . . How history should be written.” — Andrew Roberts, author of Napoleon: A Life [An] ambitious re-examination of the intersection of gender and monarchy.” — New York Times Book Review Queen Elizabeth I was all too happy to play on courtly conventions of gender when it suited her “weak and feeble woman’s body” to do so for political gain. But in Elizabeth, historian Lisa Hilton offers ample evidence why those famous words should not be taken at face value. With new research out of France, Italy, Russia, and Turkey, Hilton’s fresh interpretation is of a queen who saw herself primarily as a Renaissance prince—an expert in Machiavellian statecraft. Elizabeth depicts a queen who was much less constrained by her femininity than most accounts claim, challenging readers to reassess Elizabeth’s reign and the colorful drama and intrigue to which it is always linked. It’s a fascinating journey that shows how a marginalized newly crowned queen, whose European contemporaries considered her to be the illegitimate ruler of a pariah nation, ultimately adapted to become England’s first recognizably modern head of state. “Hilton transforms an irreverent, centuries-old vision of a ‘bewigged farthingale with a mysterious sex life’ into a resolute, steel-spined survivor who far surpassed Henry VII’s wildest hopes for his new dynasty.” — Publishers Weekly

"Ripley is an unmistakable descendant of Gatsby, that 'penniless young man without a past' who will stop at nothing."—Frank Rich Now part of American film and literary lore, Tom Ripley, "a bisexual psychopath and art forger who murders without remorse when his comforts are threatened" (New York Times Book Review), was Patricia Highsmith's favorite creation. In these volumes, we find Ripley ensconced on a French estate with a wealthy wife, a world-class art collection, and a past to hide. In Ripley Under Ground (1970), an art forgery goes awry and Ripley is threatened with exposure; in The Boy Who Followed Ripley (1980), Highsmith explores Ripley's bizarrely paternal relationship with a troubled young runaway, whose abduction draws them into Berlin's seamy underworld; and in Ripley Under Water (1991), Ripley is confronted by a snooping American couple obsessed with the disappearance of an art collector who visited Ripley years before. More than any other American literary character, Ripley provides "a lens to peer into the sinister machinations of human behavior" (John Freeman, Pittsburgh Gazette).
