Judith Rashleigh works as an assistant in a prestigious London auction house, but her dreams of breaking into the art world have been gradually dulled by the blunt forces of snobbery and corruption. To make ends meet she moonlights as a hostess in one of the West End's less salubrious bars - although her work there pales against her activities on nights off...When Judith stumbles across a conspiracy at her auction house, she is fired before she can expose the fraud. In desperation, she accepts an offer from one of the bar's clients to accompany him to the French Riviera. But when an ill-advised attempt to slip him sedatives has momentous consequences, Judith finds herself fleeing for her life. Now alone and in danger, all Judith has to rely on is her consummate ability to fake it amongst the rich and famous - and the inside track on the hugely lucrative art fraud that triggered her dismissal...Set in the exotic palaces and yachts of Europe's seriously wealthy, Maestrais a shockingly original thriller. With a heroine as wickedly perceptive as Amy Dunne and as dangerous as Lisbeth Salander, this marks the beginning of a razor-sharp and meteoric sequence of novels that will have readers around the world on the edge of their seats and holding their breath.

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.

In this riveting sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Maestra, femme fatale Judith Rashleigh once again leads readers into the mesmerizing and dangerous underworld of Europe's glamorous elite. Since opening her own art gallery in Venice, Judith Rashleigh--now Elisabeth Teerlinc--can finally stop running. She's got the paycheck, lifestyle, and wardrobe she always dreamed of, not to mention the interest of a Russian billionaire. But when a chance encounter in Ibiza leads to a corpse that is, for once, not her own doing, she finds her life is back on the line--and she's more alone than ever. 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. Hilton, and an adventure that will push Judith further than even she imagined she could go.

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. A la misma vez Sofa, como nuestros pueblos es una persona alegre, llena de vida que nos describe las caractersticas y los costumbrismos de estas vastas regiones en las montaas de los Andes ricas en belleza natural y calor humano, sus historias de la vida cotidiana nos muestra la idiosincrasia de sus gentes casi nos deja saborear sus alimentos y sus bebidas as como de la msica, las pasiones y los amores que la envolvieron.

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.

"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.

This surprising portrait of the Tudor queen offers an “ambitious re-examination of the intersection of gender and monarchy” (The 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 sovereign 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 monarch, 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.

Against the backdrop of Darwin, that small, tropical hothouse of a port, half-outback, half-oriental, lying at the tip of northern Australia, a young and newly arrived southerner encounters the 'maestro', a Viennese refugee with a shadowed past. The occasion is a piano lesson, the first of many. 'I enjoyed Maestro enormously. Besides its thoughtfulness and bright sensuality, it has a playful quality, a love of jest, which appealed to me very much.' Helen Garner, SYDNEY REVIEW On release, MAEStRO was hailed 'a splendid achievement, a wise, deeply felt novel that continues to haunt well after one has finished it. It is distinguished by subtlety, by economy and by a quality often lacking in even the best of recent novels - an unerring quality of tone' by Andrew Riemer in the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. It has sold over 200,000 copies in Australia and was voted by members of the Australian Society of Authors as one of the top 40 Australian Books of All time. 'the necessary elusiveness of perfection, the unplumbed ocean beneath articulateness, the ambivalence of beauty - these are the revolving concerns of Peter Goldsworthy, and handled not just with irony, but with an effervescent, compassionate wit. He can't help being funny, but he's wise too.' - AUStRALIAN BOOK REVIEW

"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).
