FDLE agent Bill Tasker’s boss is worried about the stress Tasker’s been under, but he has a solution. The governor wants somebody from the outside to take a look into an inmate homicide at Manatee Correctional Prison, and the boss figures he can do the state a favor and give Tasker a break at the same time. Some break. Turns out there’s a whole lot going on at Manatee. The prison captain likes to enforce discipline by fairly unorthodox methods. The psych ward has been known to misplace a mental patient occasionally. A trustee named Luther has far more on his mind than working in the prison library—though the rods holding up the shelves do make very nice shivs. The prison inspector is carrying a number of very uninspector-like secrets. And something very bad is about to happen to Tasker’s next-door neighbor. Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea, after all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gene Engene.

The Washington Post said, "Nobody does smart, gutsy, funny, sexy women better than Susan Isaacs". Add to that praise the adjective "strong", and you've got Susan's latest protagonist, Marianne Kent. Her life may not seem thrilling - living with her widowed mother, majoring in economics, working in an elegant dress store after classes to put away money for graduate school - but she's determined to make a better life for herself and her mom. One night, she comes home to see the light is out again over the door. That old fuse box? Again? Except when Marianne gets inside, she stumbles over something, and it's immediately clear what has happened: Her mother has been murdered. The NYPD is stumped. Marianne's father, an army captain, was killed in battle when she was a year old, and whatever other family she has are so distant she's never met them. Whom can she turn to? Marianne does what strong women always do: She turns to herself. With help from Laurie Fishbein, her BFF since second grade, she becomes her own private detective to solve the case of her lifetime. Susan Isaacs was dubbed "Jane Austen with a shmear" on NPR's Fresh Air. Among her 13 novels are Almost Paradise, Shining Through, and After All These Years. She has written screenplays for two films, Compromising Positions (adapted from her novel) and Hello Again, as well as a nonfiction work, Brave Dames and Wimpettes: What Women Are Really Doing on Page and Screen. Currently, she serves as chairman of the literary organization Poets & Writers. A member of the National Book Critics Circle, she has reviewed for New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post, and Newsday. She is a past president of Mystery Writers of America and belongs to the Creative Coalition, PEN, and the International Association of Crime Writers. Susan is a trustee emerita of the Queens 1.

Daddy-Long-Legs - The Original Classic Edition
22,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

A sweet Story with a twist : Usually I absolutely hate novels that are supposed to be a collection of letters and/or diary entries for this simple reason, they are as transparent as saran wrap. Something along the lines of Im just jotting down a casual letter to inform you that I just had a terrible fight with so-and-so, heres what we said word for word complete with speaker attributes Thats why I was so pleasantly suprised with this book. The writing is entertaining, intelligent and always realistic. That is EXACTLY how a person in their late teens, early twenties writes (I know, Im a letter writer in that age group) and it is so refreshing to read an author who knows what she is talking about on the subject. Judy Abbott is most certainly not a Pollyanna, she teases, gets angry and argues but she has a nice nature and always manages to patch things up. She is an orphan who writes to her mysterious benefactor whom she dubs Daddy-Long-Legs. Because he is her fairy godmother for all purposes, she confides in him even though she knows he will never answer. The ending is marvelous with a great little twist. I think this book is great for girls 8-80 and am sorry I did not read it sooner The book consists almost entirely of letters written by Judy. Judy is an orphan from the John Grier Home, an orphange she was raised in since she was a baby. Her future seems very bleak until one day she is unexpectedly offered the opportunity for a paid college education to become an author by one of the orphanages trustees. In return, she has to write monthly letters to the unknown trustee who is known as Mr. John Smith. She calls him Daddy-Long-Legs because she saw his tall shadow as he left the building. Her letters are very entertaining, and often impertinent. That is really all I want to tell of the story, but here are a couple of quotes from the book that I loved: It isnt the big troubles in life that require character. Anybody can rise to a crisis and face a crushing tragedy with courage, but to meet the petty hazards of the day with a laugh -- I really think that requires spirit. I think the most necessary quality for any person to have is imagination. It makes people able to put themselves in other peoples places. It makes them kind and sympathetic and understanding. It ought to be cultivated in children.

The Christian faith is difficult--intellectually, morally, and spiritually. People struggle to make sense of it, and to live it. Many give up. Sitting in the pew (an increasing rarity), with a Christian upbringing and education behind him, Christopher Ward finds the practice and the preaching of the church unhelpful in resolving these struggles. He is tempted to give up and reject it all. Before he does, however, he is determined to make one last attempt to explore what it all means to him, guided only by what he hears and reads in the Bible Sunday to Sunday. Christopher Ward takes the four readings appointed for each Sunday in one year and identifies those verses that have a particular resonance for him. He then explores his personal response to them, unaided by academic study or biblical commentary, and analyzes their cumulative impact on his thinking. This exercise results in unexpected discoveries, and new trains of thought, plus many frustrations and much perplexity. In the end, his struggles are rewarded by a realization that his faltering faith has more to support it than he first believed. ''The author has listened long and hard to sermons and church statements, waiting to hear something relevant to Monday to Friday realities. This work comes out of his own frustrations, as he calls his own bluff to see what emerges directly from lectionary readings. The result probably surprised him as much as others. Here is testament to the vivid and still contemporary challenges of many robust biblical exchanges, not least in the words and actions of Jesus. It is radical in the true meaning of the word--coming from a digging up of the roots covered over by the soil of centuries of internal church culture.'' --Robin Morrison, Bishop's Adviser for Church and Society, Barry, Wales, UK ''Christopher Ward's fascinating book invites us all to look anew at what we believe and what is the relevance to us today of the Bible. In an increasingly secular world, it challenges us to find a third way between the twin poles of belief and unbelief, to, in his words, 'have faith in our doubts.''' --Colin Heyman, lay preacher, Cardiff, Wales, UK ''For those like me who toddle off to church and are frequently bemused by the lessons of the day, this is a fresh, insightful approach by an intelligent layman. . . . It's a questioning, questing book about what the Bible says we are here for.'' --Colin Luke, film director, Mosaic Films, London, UK Christopher Ward is a speaker, writer, and charity trustee. He is a Methodist by upbringing but became an Anglican while at university. He has been Chief Executive of organizations in the private, public, and voluntary sectors in the UK. He speaks under the brand name ''The Management Preacher'' on a wide range of management and leadership issues, but particularly on how to make all work meaningful. He is the author of Company Courtesy (1990) and Meaningful Work (2011).

The title tells it all! You can, for once, actually tell something about the book by its cover. Author, Tony Arangio, Ph.D., takes the phrase, 'I'm Going To The Media And Getting A Lawyer' from angry parents who were upset with their kid's school, and turned it into an entertaining, thought provoking, stimulating and, at times, very funny and poignant first person account of his 17 years as the Director of Parent Relations for a very large (over 65,000 kids) public school district. Written in a conversational style without technical jargon and devoid of footnotes, this book immediately hones in on many issues which help to give insight equally to parents of school age children from K-12 and school district administrators and teachers. Full of richly described, sometimes hysterical recollections of actual events with gently offered layers of advice, suggested guidelines to follow, thought provoking observations and insights into how to avoid possible flashpoints, this book is subtly instructional without being didactic. Dr. Arangio deftly carries you from his earliest remembrances as a student in public schools, setting the tone of his passion with education and quickly engaging us in a dialogue about all participants in any bureaucracy needing to understand themselves in order to be able to communicate with others. He does not shy away from subjects of race, socio-economic status, religion, discipline and consequences and even the always daunting subject of cheerleaders. While cases are interspersed throughout, 16 memorable cases were added. The concluding epilogues provide an appropriate balance to the beginning passages giving the reader a very satisfying ending. Anyone who has anything to do with a child's education: parent, school employee, school trustee, college of education student or professor, even state legislator, should find this book a stimulating and a fun read.
