Summary: "Meticulously researched, beautifully written and an unstoppable read. This is not your ordinary thriller." Ahmed Rashid, author of Descent into Chaos "A heart-pounding read and an investigative tour de force, The Siege is an essential primer on terror in the 21st Century. As it dissects the 2008 attack on Mumbai, The Siege shows where mass-murderers come from, how they think and what it is like to be caught in the cross-hairs of their madness." Blaine Harden, author of the New York Times bestselling Escape from Camp 14 "Totally unputdownable, utterly absorbing Scott-Clark and Levy's minute-by-minute account of the 2008 attacks on one of the world's most vibrant cities humanizes the tragedy more than any rolling news coverage ever could. Here we have victims, hostages, police and terrorists before us; their every fateful action and decision explained the moments of sheer chaos as well as, the crucial seconds of clarity and the absurdity of those 68 horrific hours. But, perhaps more importantly, The Siege evocatively captures the atmosphere of the city under unparalleled onslaught as ordinary Mumbaikars looked on as their city's major landmark burned." Paul French, author of the Edgar Award-winning Midnight in Peking "Veteran Southeast Asia journalists Scott-Clark and Levy recreate this cataclysmic disaster with all the pulse-pumping intensity of a cinematic action thriller, recounting astonishing episodes of personal heroism while issuing a sobering indictment of the ineptitude of the government and security agencies that failed to prevent the attack and protect civilians."

Item Description: Delacorte Press, New York, 2001. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. Marfree, acidfree F/Fine 1stEd; embossed DJ a bit rubbed, not marked-in, clearance or discard. Usually mails within 12 hours. ; The V. I. Warshawski Series; 9.6 x 6.5 x 1.4 inches; 432 pages; Online Rev. : Chicago private investigator V. I. Warshawski returns in an exceptionally well-plotted thriller that focuses attention on V. I. 's longtime friend Lotty Herschel. In a handful of chapters that punctuate the contemporary narrative, the Austrian-born physician tells her own story. More than just a device to draw the many threads of this complex novel together, Lotty's history illuminates the depth and complexity of a character that readers of Sara Paretsky's many books-- like V. I. Herself--only thought they knew. At a conference on the recovery of Holocaust assets, a man named Paul Radbuka surfaces, claiming to be part of the past that Lotty left buried in war-torn Europe half a century ago. The aging Lotty is emotionally shattered. She has never talked to V. I. About those years following her escape from Austria--her youth as an orphaned teenager in England and the brilliant medical career that ultimately brought her to America. But Radbuka's claims have such a dramatic effect on her that V. I. Feels compelled to investigate him. Radbuka's early life in a concentration camp has recently come back to him, aided by the ministrations of a recovered-memory therapist. Now he's demanding that Lotty and her friend Max, another émigré, acknowledge his connection to them, something neither is prepared to do. Is Radbuka really who he claims to be? And if he's the impostor Lotty says he is, why is she so terrified of him? V. I. 's efforts to pin down Radbuka's identity dovetail with another case, that of a client with a beef against an insurance company that's trying to keep the state legislature from passing a Holocaust Asset Recovery Act. It's a little too tidy for coincidence, but since it gives Paretsky a chance to show off her knowledge of Chicago politics, the reader is delighted to accept it. While it's Lotty's voice that brings the dead to life and the past into the present, it's V. I. 's dogged perseverance and abiding affection for her friend that drive this powerful, brilliantly executed novel to a conclusion. This is one of Paretsky's strongest outings in years. --Jane Adams.

Summary: Based on the recorded memories, diary and love letters ofSaartjeWijnberg(SelmaWijnbergEngel) andChaimEngel, Dancing Through Darkness is a true story that exists only because of the strength of love and the power of dreams. From Poland and Holland, and with no common language, SaartjeandChaimmet and fell in love when forced to dance together for the entertainment of the Nazi SS guards atSobiborDeath Camp in Poland in April, 1943. As their love grew, in defiance of the brutality that surrounded them, they promised each other they would survive. Their dream of living to share a normal life was simple, but it gave them the strength and the courage to survive the unspeakable atrocities ofSobibor, one of Hitler's most efficient Death Camps. On October 14, 1943, the largest escape from over 300 concentration camps took place atSobibor.ChaimEngel'sinvolvement included killing an SS guard and holdingSaartje'shand as they ran from the camp and kept running and hiding for ten days in a hostile country. A Polish farmer and his wife, Adam andStefkaNowak, agreed to hide them in the hayloft over their cows for the moneyChaimhad risked his life to smuggle from the camp. Life in the camp, the escape, nine months of unspeakable deprivation in hiding and the birth, and the death of their son are written inSaartje'sdiary and reflected in Dancing Through Darkness. SaartjeandChaimnever knew why they survived and others who tried just as hard did not, but they vowed to speak for the 250,000 who died atSobiborand could no longer speak for themselves. As they lived the American dream with a successful business and an active family, they made their story a priority. Refusing any compensation, they spoke to schools, businesses, civic groups, churches, synagogues, at the war trials inHaagen, Germany--anywhere a group would listen to their story of the horrors created by prejudice and hatred when good people remain silent. Their voices were temporarily silenced whenChaimdied on July 4, 2003. At 89, Saartjeis no longer able to travel and speak as much as she would like, but by sharing her memories, her diary and their love letters in Dancing Through Darkness, she continues to honorChaimand their love of 60 years. She also speaks for those whose voices were silenced forever.". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0985532882

Item Description: Penguin Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The heartwrenching New York Times bestseller about the only known person born inside a North Korean prison camp to have escaped North Korea s political prison camps have existed twice as long as Stalin s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. No one born and raised in these camps is known to have escaped. No one, that is, except Shin Dong-hyuk. In Escape From Camp 14, Blaine Harden unlocks the secrets of the world s most repressive totalitarian state through the story of Shin s shocking imprisonment and his astounding getaway. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence--he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his mother and brother. The late Dear Leader Kim Jong Il was recognized throughout the world, but his country remains sealed as his third son and chosen heir, Kim Jong Eun, consolidates power. Few foreigners are allowed in, and few North Koreans are able to leave. North Korea is hungry, bankrupt, and armed with nuclear weapons. It is also a human rights catastrophe. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people work as slaves in its political prison camps. These camps are clearly visible in satellite photographs, yet North Korea s government denies they exist. Harden s harrowing narrative exposes this hidden dystopia, focusing on an extraordinary young man who came of age inside the highest security prison in the highest security state. Escape from Camp 14 offers an unequalled inside account of one of the world s darkest nations. It is a tale of endurance and courage, survival and hope. Bookseller Inventory # KNV9780143122913

Summary: "With even reporting and spare, lovely prose, Kizzia exposes the tyrannies of faith, and a family''s desperate unraveling. It will make your skin crawl."- The Daily Beast "For those awaiting the next Jon Krakauer-esque classic, look to an Alaskan writer named Tom Kizzia. A gripping nonfiction thriller told with masterful clarity.I''m betting it will be the sleeper hit of the summer. Put it at the top of your stack."- Outside Magazine "A riveting read." - Texas Monthly Meticulously researched, Pilgrim''s Wilderness is an absorbing and substantive education on America''s Last Frontier encased in a blood-pumping, nightmarish family drama as brutal as the wilderness itself. Kizzia writes of Alaska with the affection and steadiness of a weathered travel guide--the kind who knows the best route in. And the best route out."- Kirkus Reviews "Strong work of reportage. [Papa Pilgrim''s] intriguing past crumbles in comparison to his excruciating cruelty and to the inspiring grace and strength of his children."- Booklist "The riveting story of a megalomaniacal sociopath who left a trail of woe from Texas to the Great White North, Pilgrim''s Wilderness lends credence to the maxim that the unadulterated truth, when conveyed with sufficient skill, is not only more illuminating than fiction, but also more entertaining. Tom Kizzia has written an uncommonly insightful book about post-frontier Alaska, an ambitious literary work disguised as a page-turner, very much in the tradition of Edward Hoagland''s Notes From the Century Before and John McPhee''s Coming into the Country ." -Jon Krakauer, author of Into the Wild and Under the Banner of Heaven "This is a riveting, mesmerizing story, stunning and eloquent all at the same time. I simply couldn''t put it down." --Ken Burns, filmmaker, The Civil War and The National Parks: America''s Best Idea "Tom Kizzia''s superb book is startling, unpredictable, haunting, clear-eyed, unrelenting, sad, and beautiful. Pilgrim''s Wilderness , in other words, is like Alaska itself, a subject the author understands deeply and evokes with uncommon skill." - David Maraniss, author of When Pride Still Mattered and They Marched into Sunlight "What an epic story - sociopathy and crazy ideology hits the final frontier. Jon Krakauer couldn''t have done it any better." - Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth and Deep Economy " Pilgrim''s Wilderness is a fine book, methodically narrating a tale of libertarianism gone haywire on a genuine frontier." - Edward Hoagland, author of Children Are Diamonds " Pilgrim''s Wilderness is a terrifying masterpiece, elegantly written, painstakingly researched, and impossible to put down. Tom Kizzia has created a classic American Gothic, chilling, irresistible and wise." - Blaine Harden, author of Escape from Camp 14 "Tom Kizzia''s Pilgrim''s Wilderness is a bizarre and twisted Alaska saga of mythic proportions. This nonfiction gem has ''Hollywood hit'' written all over it. Once you start reading, you won''t be able to put it down." - Douglas Brinkley, author of The Quiet World "There isn''t a bad sentence in Pilgrim''s Wilderness , not a dull page or sour note. A masterpiece of reporting and storytelling." - Zev Chafets, author of Cooperstown Confidential and A Match Made in Heaven "The bizarre and tragic true story that unfolds in the pages of this extraordinary book is like nothing else I have ever read.

Item Description: Penguin Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The heartwrenching New York Times bestseller about the only known person born inside a North Korean prison camp to have escaped North Korea s political prison camps have existed twice as long as Stalin s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. No one born and raised in these camps is known to have escaped. No one, that is, except Shin Dong-hyuk. In Escape From Camp 14, Blaine Harden unlocks the secrets of the world s most repressive totalitarian state through the story of Shin s shocking imprisonment and his astounding getaway. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence--he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his mother and brother. The late Dear Leader Kim Jong Il was recognized throughout the world, but his country remains sealed as his third son and chosen heir, Kim Jong Eun, consolidates power. Few foreigners are allowed in, and few North Koreans are able to leave. North Korea is hungry, bankrupt, and armed with nuclear weapons. It is also a human rights catastrophe. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people work as slaves in its political prison camps. These camps are clearly visible in satellite photographs, yet North Korea s government denies they exist. Harden s harrowing narrative exposes this hidden dystopia, focusing on an extraordinary young man who came of age inside the highest security prison in the highest security state. Escape from Camp 14 offers an unequalled inside account of one of the world s darkest nations. It is a tale of endurance and courage, survival and hope. Bookseller Inventory # KNV9780143122913

Item Description: Penguin Books, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Meticulously researched, beautifully written and an unstoppable read. This is not your ordinary thriller." Ahmed Rashid, author of Descent into Chaos "A heart-pounding read and an investigative tour de force, The Siege is an essential primer on terror in the 21st Century. As it dissects the 2008 attack on Mumbai, The Siege shows where mass-murderers come from, how they think and what it is like to be caught in the cross-hairs of their madness." Blaine Harden, author of the New York Times bestselling Escape from Camp 14 "Totally unputdownable, utterly absorbing Scott-Clark and Levy's minute-by-minute account of the 2008 attacks on one of the world's most vibrant cities humanizes the tragedy more than any rolling news coverage ever could. Here we have victims, hostages, police and terrorists before us; their every fateful action and decision explained the moments of sheer chaos as well as, the crucial seconds of clarity and the absurdity of those 68 horrific hours. But, perhaps more importantly, The Siege evocatively captures the atmosphere of the city under unparalleled onslaught as ordinary Mumbaikars looked on as their city's major landmark burned." Paul French, author of the Edgar Award-winning Midnight in Peking. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0143126083

Item Description: Dunham Books, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 224 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Based on the recorded memories, diary and love letters ofSaartjeWijnberg(SelmaWijnbergEngel) andChaimEngel, Dancing Through Darkness is a true story that exists only because of the strength of love and the power of dreams. From Poland and Holland, and with no common language, SaartjeandChaimmet and fell in love when forced to dance together for the entertainment of the Nazi SS guards atSobiborDeath Camp in Poland in April, 1943. As their love grew, in defiance of the brutality that surrounded them, they promised each other they would survive. Their dream of living to share a normal life was simple, but it gave them the strength and the courage to survive the unspeakable atrocities ofSobibor, one of Hitler s most efficient Death Camps. On October 14, 1943, the largest escape from over 300 concentration camps took place atSobibor.ChaimEngel sinvolvement included killing an SS guard and holdingSaartje shand as they ran from the camp and kept running and hiding for ten days in a hostile country. A Polish farmer and his wife, Adam andStefkaNowak, agreed to hide them in the hayloft over their cows for the moneyChaimhad risked his life to smuggle from the camp. Life in the camp, the escape, nine months of unspeakable deprivation in hiding and the birth, and the death of their son are written inSaartje sdiary and reflected in Dancing Through Darkness. SaartjeandChaimnever knew why they survived and others who tried just as hard did not, but they vowed to speak for the 250,000 who died atSobiborand could no longer speak for themselves. As they lived the American dream with a successful business and an active family, they made their story a priority. Refusing any compensation, they spoke to schools, businesses, civic groups, churches, synagogues, at the war trials inHaagen, Germany--anywhere a group would listen to their story of the horrors created by prejudice and hatred when good people remain silent. Their voices were temporarily silenced whenChaimdied on July 4, 2003. At 89, Saartjeis no longer able to travel and speak as much as she would like, but by sharing her memories, her diary and their love letters in Dancing Through Darkness, she continues to honorChaimand their love of 60 years. She also speaks for those whose voices were silenced forever. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780985532888
