Five footprints are the only sign that Daniel Buck was ever here. And now they are all his mother has left. Every day Anna Buck guards the little prints in the cement. Polishing them to a shine. Keeping them safe. Spiralling towards insanity. When a psychic offers hope, Anna grasps it. Who wouldn't? Maybe he can tell her what happened to her son.... But is this man what he claims to be? Is he a visionary? A shut eye? Or a cruel fake preying on the vulnerable? Or is he something far, far worse? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Wincott.

Who knew what evil lurked in the hearts of men who fish and never cut bait as they spear their prey in their quest for power, money - and sometimes, fish? Commissioner Jerry Largent undergoes a massive change of attitude as events beyond his control propel him into taking a drastic change: to fake his own death! Here is a sample: The August full moon lit up the mouth of Indian Creek in front of the bedroom window in the Largent home that faced upriver toward the small town of Benedict in neighboring Charles County. The moonlight that beamed through the window illuminated Carla's olive-colored face as she slept. It was two a.m. Jerry had retired to their bedroom, but he did not go to bed. He sat in the dressing chair and quietly focused on the smile reflected from Carla's lovely Latin lips as she lay dreaming. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Violet Meadow.

A mistletoe kiss is just a simple kiss, right? Wrong.All I want to do during this Christmas break is survive. A week at the cabin with our family’s friends/rivals, the Stephensons, every yuletide activity is turned into a competition where my family must win. Every. One. Yep. Lots of Christmas spirit around here. But, I've survived past holidays, there's no reason why I can't survive this one. Until Mom informs me that Jacob Stephenson, my brother's ex-best friend and resident bad boy, is back from his grandmothers after having been gone for the semester. I guess, after you find out your son robbed a gas station, you banish him to the most southern state. Now my ridiculous crush is back in full force and I’m trying really hard to stay away from him. My brother is frustrated that Jacob is home and I'm supposed to put my family above boys. Right?Maybe...I was attempting to be loyal until Jacob and I kiss. Sure, it was a forced one brought on by mistletoe tradition, but there was something in the way he held me and pressed his lips to mine that told me, he just might be feeling something more. But when he keeps pulling away and acting like the bad boy I'm pretty sure is fake, I begin to realize that there's more at stake here then just my heart. A truth that is eating away at him. I just hope I can unearth it before Christmas is over and any chance that I have at discovering the real Jacob disappears. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Liz Krane.

Gabby looked out the window of the car. They were heading over to the new burrito restaurant that had opened just around the corner from their house. It was always this way for Gabby's family. A new restaurant opened, no matter if it was just a second store or not, and they would go running to the grand opening. Her mind wandered back to school and her health class. They were talking about the food pyramid again and had to memorize how it was built. They even had homework on trying to eat as the food pyramid said for a day. Her parents said they would help but here they were, driving to a place that was unhealthy. Her dad just shrugged his shoulders when she said it was unhealthy and said she could put a lot of vegetables and meat on it to balance it all out. To him, it didn't sound unhealthy at all unless she drank some soda or something. Her mom even agreed to what he was saying. They walked inside the restaurant, and Gabby wanted to gag. It was just gross inside, despite it being the grand opening. People had left trash on the floor and on their tables. Grease was popping in the kitchen to make the meat, and it was just way too loud. When they reached the counter, Gabby looked at all the food. Her brother had said that many restaurants don't use actual fresh meat, and most of it was artificial. The thought of eating fake meat just seemed gross to her. How could anyone eat this stuff? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pam Rossi.

Iron Man 3 Er ist exzentrisch, genial, scharfzüngig - doch nicht unbesiegbar. Das muss Tony Stark alias Iron Man erkennen, als er sich einem Gegner gegenübersieht, der keine Grenzen kennt. Nachdem dieser ihm all das, was Stark am Herzen liegt, genommen hat, begibt sich der geschlagene Held auf die leidvolle Suche den zu finden, der dafür verantwortlich ist - eine Reise, die seinen Mut und seine Standhaftigkeit auf eine harte Probe stellen wird. Mit dem Rücken zur Wand kann sich Stark auf seiner Mission nur noch auf seine eigenen Instrumente, seinen Scharfsinn und seine Instinkte verlassen, um jene zu schützen, die ihm am wichtigsten sind. Während er sich langsam wieder zu alter Form zurückkämpft, findet Stark die Antwort auf die Frage, die ihn insgeheim schon lange verfolgt: Macht der Mann den Anzug oder macht der Anzug den Mann? Thor The Dark World Mit einem gewaltigen Donnerschlag kehrt er zurück – der mächtige Thor! Denn nicht nur die Erde, sondern alle Neun Reiche werden von einem dunklen Feind bedroht, ein Gegner, der älter ist als das Universum selbst: Malekith, der Verfluchte! Der unerbittliche Herrscher der dunklen Elfen setzt alles daran, das Universum zu zerstören. Nicht einmal Thors Vater Odin, König von Asgard, vermag es, ihn aufzuhalten. Um Malekith zu besiegen und die Kräfte des Kosmos wieder in Einklang zu bringen, tritt Thor seine gefährlichste Reise an. Diese wird ihn mit seiner großen Liebe Jane Foster wiedervereinen – sie wird ihn jedoch auch dazu zwingen, alles zu opfern, um die Welten zu retten… Captain America – Winter Soldier: Zwei Jahre sind vergangen, seit Steve Rogers alias Captain America gemeinsam mit den Avengers in New York einen außerirdischen Angriff zurückgeschlagen hat. Zurück in Washington kämpft er im Auftrag von Nick Fury gemeinsam mit Natasha Romanoff alias Black Widow erfolgreich in neuen Geheimoperationen. Als bei einem Einsatz ein S.H.I.E.L.D.-Agent unter Beschuss gerät, wird Rogers plötzlich in ein Netz von Intrigen hineingezogen, das zu einer Gefahr für die ganze Welt zu werden droht. Gemeinsam mit seinen Verbündeten steht er schon bald einem ebenso unerwarteten wie höchst gefährlichen Gegner gegenüber - dem Winter Soldier. Guardians Of The Galaxy Der Pilot und intergalaktische Vagabund Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), als „Star-Lord“ bekannt und immer auf der Suche nach kostbaren Relikten, gerät durch einen dummen Zufall zwischen die Fronten eines (welt-)allumfassenden Konfliktes. Bei seinem letzten Beutezug stiehlt er ohne es zu ahnen eine mysteriöse Super-Waffe, auf die offensichtlich das ganze Universum scharf ist, und macht sich damit nicht nur zum neuen Lieblingsfeind des gewieften Schurken Ronan. Denn wer immer diese Waffe besitzt, ist in der Lage, den gesamten Kosmos zu unterwerfen. Auf seiner wilden Flucht verbündet sich Quill notgedrungen mit einem bunt zusammengewürfelten Haufen Außenseiter: dem waffenschwingenden Waschbären Rocket Racoon, dem intelligenten Baummenschen Groot, der ebenso rätselhaften wie tödlichen Gamora (Zoe Saldana) und dem raffinierten Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). Unter dem Namen GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY zieht diese ziemlich spezielle Heldentruppe gemeinsam in den Kampf um das Schicksal des gesamten Universums. Irgendjemand muss den Job ja erledigen! Avengers Age Of Ultron Es ist einige Zeit vergangen, seit die Avengers New York gegen den Angriff einer außerirdischen Armee verteidigt haben. Jeder ist seitdem seinen eigenen Weg gegangen und manch einer hatte sein ganz persönliches Abenteuer zu bestehen. Als Milliardär Tony Stark ein stillgelegtes Friedensprogramm reaktiviert, gerät die Situation plötzlich außer Kontrolle und das Schicksal der Erde steht auf dem Spiel. Gemeinsam müssen sich die Avengers Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow und Hawkeye gegen den scheinbar übermächtigen Ultron stellen, der wild entschlossen ist, die gesamte Menschheit auszulöschen. Um seine Pläne zu vereiteln, müssen die Avengers unberechenbare Allianzen eingehen und in eine Schlacht von globalen Ausmaßen ziehen. Ant-Man Trickbetrüger Scott Lang besitzt die unglaubliche Fähigkeit, auf winzige Körpergröße zu schrumpfen und gleichzeitig seine Kräfte zu vervielfachen. Gemeinsam mit seinem Mentor Dr. Hank Pym muss Lang das Geheimnis um Pyms einzigartigen Ant-Man-Anzug vor einer gefährlichen Bedrohung beschützen und mithilfe eines spektakulären Raubzugs die Zukunft der ganzen Welt entscheiden.

Here is a tautly paced investigation of one the 20th century's most audacious art frauds, which generated hundreds of forgeries - many of them still hanging in prominent museums and private collections today. Provenance is the extraordinary narrative of one of the most far-reaching and elaborate deceptions in art history. Investigative reporters Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo brilliantly recount the tale of a great con man and unforgettable villain, John Drewe, and his sometimes unwitting accomplices. Chief among those was the struggling artist John Myatt, a vulnerable single father who was manipulated by Drewe into becoming a prolific art forger. Once Myatt had painted the pieces, the real fraud began. Drewe managed to infiltrate the archives of the upper echelons of the British art world in order to fake the provenance of Myatt's forged pieces, hoping to irrevocably legitimize the fakes while effectively rewriting art history. The story stretches from London to Paris to New York, from tony Manhattan art galleries to the esteemed Giacometti and Dubuffet associations, to the archives at the Tate Gallery. This enormous swindle resulted in the introduction of at least 200 forged paintings, some of them breathtakingly good and most of them selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many of these fakes are still out in the world, considered genuine and hung prominently in private houses, large galleries, and prestigious museums. And the sacred archives, undermined by John Drewe, remain tainted to this day. Provenance reads like a well-plotted thriller, filled with unforgettable characters and told at a breakneck pace. But this is most certainly not fiction; Provenance is the meticulously researched and captivating account of one of the greatest cons in the history of art forgery. 1. Language: English.

Germany, 1939.While Europe braces for the inevitable advancement of the Nazi war machine, Hitler turns his hate-filled agenda on his own people, specifically the portion of the German population least able to defend itself - the mentally and physically disabled. Aktion T4 is enacted to disinfect mainstream Germany of this undesirable portion of its population by creating killing centres both in Germany and the surrounding annexed countries, most notably, at Hartheim Castle in Alkoven, Austria. Here the Nazis, headed by Karl Brandt and Phillip Bouhler, perfect their art of mass murder, using fake shower rooms as gas chambers nearly two full years before they are ever used in a death camp. Felix Schmidt is a Jewish former medical doctor who was stripped of his station and rights by the Nuremberg Race Laws of 1935. Since that time, Felix and his wife, Claudia, have struggled to raise their family amid the growing popularity of Aryan supremacy, a challenge further complicated by their realization that their youngest son, David, has cerebral palsy. Now, Felix must not only deal with the brutal racism that is inflicted upon him, but he must also hide David from view, lest he be swallowed up by the Aktion T4 machinery. When an unthinkable betrayal finds Felix alone and desperate, he must race against time to find, and save, David from the inevitable end that has claimed so many abandoned souls. 1.

With the election of Donald J. Trump, many people on both the left and right feared that America's 240-year-old grand experiment in democracy was coming to an end, and that Sinclair Lewis' satirical novel, It Can't Happen Here, written during the dark days of the 1930s, could finally be coming true. Is the democratic freedom that the United States symbolizes really secure? Can authoritarianism happen in America? Acclaimed legal scholar, Harvard Professor, and New York Times best-selling author Cass R. Sunstein queried a number of the nation's leading thinkers. In this thought-provoking collection of essays, these distinguished thinkers and theorists explore the lessons of history, how democracies crumble, how propaganda works, and the role of the media, courts, elections, and "fake news" in the modern political landscape - and what the future of the United States may hold.
