Camping Reservations Body Of Lies by Terri Kaye Duncan


Original Title: Camping Reservations Body Of Lies

Sarah is having a rotten summer. While her friends are having the time of their lives at Camp Wallhalla’s Teen Scene Week, she is being forced to go camping with the meanest people on the face of the earth—her parents. But Sarah has no idea she is about to experience a summer she will never forget. Confined in a camper with her parents, Sarah thinks her life stinks. Her fate turns, however, when she meets Cory Hamlin, a dreamy fellow camper who helps her discover that vacationing in the great outdoors is tons more fun than spending a week at camp. After four days at the lake swimming, canoeing, and falling head over heels for the blue-eyed boy in the tent next door, the disappointment of missing Teen Scene Week seems like a distant memory. Sarah’s camping trip takes an unexpected, eerie turn, however, when a teenager suddenly disappears off a boat in the dark of the night. Suddenly Sarah knows more than she should. Now it is up to her, with Cory’s help, to gather evidence and decide who to trust before they can ever go to the police.

Review Interesting characters, a well-developed romance between two intelligent, emotionally honest people and a race to stop a madman make this a book worth reading. -- Romantic Times Book Reviews Ms. Savoy has done her research and proves again that suspense is her forte' with the all the surprising twists and turns that seem to never end. -- Affaire de Coeur Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. Prologue "What's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?" It was a corny remark designed to be humorous so no one in their right mind in this day and age would say such a thing in sincerity. Still, he got the reaction he'd wanted. Even though he was in the crappy station wagon he'd boosted from in front of some apartment building on 233rd and she was a safe distance away on the sidewalk, she darted a glance at him, more annoyance than wariness in her gaze. He smiled to himself in a way that didn't show on his face. She wasn't his usual type, but she would do for tonight. She was too old, for one thing, and too skinny. He could tell despite the short black coat she wore. He liked them thick, with big legs, big asses, big tits, sloppy. More like her. Her mouth held promise, though--wide, loose, painted a dark shade of crimson, like blood. He would enjoy that mouth. He leaned farther toward the passenger door, while keeping the car at a crawl. This time he smiled for real. She had no idea of the favor he planned to do for her. He was about to make her famous. "You may not have noticed but isn't the best neighborhood at night." She cast him a look that would have translated to "no shit," if she'd spoken. This stretch of the service road of the New England Thruway was deserted from Connor Street on down to the new rows of two- and three-family houses on Baychester Avenue. Four blocks of near desolation, save for overflow from the highway, which could be heavy, but not at this hour, the couple of motels, the patrons of which were more interested in shielding their anonymity than anything going out on the street, and a couple blocks of unfinished houses, empty and dark, their facades looking like enormous gaping faces. Some places, like the bit of road she stepped onto now had no sidewalk to speak of. "I'll be fine," she said finally. He heard it in her voice, the fear that maybe she'd stumbled into the wrong place at the wrong time. He'd seen her get off the highway at Connor Street. He was at the BP station filling up the piece of shit station wagon when her car hobbled in with a flat right front tire. He'd listen to her asking the attendant if she could leave it there until she came back with help in a few minutes. At this time of night all the nearby shops extolling Flat Fixed had pulled in their signs for the night. She hadn't seen him, or at least he hadn't registered on her radar. He'd given her a five-minute head start, then followed. Now he smiled in a self-deprecating way and held the expression until he was sure she'd noticed. "I'm not trying to be a nuisance. In truth, I'm lost. There weren't so many houses or new houses around the last time I was here." "What street are you looking for?" "Givan." She gestured with her hand, "It's that way. Keep going and you'll hit it." "Thanks. You sure I can't drop you anywhere?" As if on cue, an Explorer rolled up on them, seemingly out of nowhere, like a huge dark specter, it's stereo blazing, it's headlamps casting garish light as it passed. The yahoo on the passenger side threw a beer bottle out the window. The projectile hit the ground with a dull crack, spewing liquid and glass onto the already filthy street. For one sweet moment he watched the car pass. Sometimes the universe was just with you. He knew he had her now. "Sure you don't need that ride?" he asked, but it was a tease. He knew what she'd do. She'd get in thinking she was safer with him than she was on her own. "Maybe I will take you up on your offer. In one move she stepped toward the car, pulled the door open and slid inside. He pressed the button on the driver's side door panel to depress all the locks. "Relax," he said, pulling away from the curb. "You're safe now. Where do you want to go? Givan, right?" "Just two blocks down, near the corner. Givan is the one after." He nodded, as if it made any difference to him. He concentrated on accelerating the car and the choice he had to make. "Hey, slow down," she said. "It's right there." He glanced at her sideways, grinning a little, just enough to let her know she'd miscalculated. "Let me out," she demanded, pulling futilely on the door handle. "Let me go. If you hurt me my father will kill you." Fear or pain. Pain or fear. The choice was always the same. He was close enough to the highway now to make the choice necessary. Traffic was light enough to ensure him an easy entrance if he timed it right. Just as the girl started to launch herself at him, he reached his left hand between his legs where he kept both a thirty-eight and a stun gun concealed beneath his T-shirt. He settled for the thirty-eight and aimed it at her chest. "Keep still and I won't shoot you. The girl froze. She was crying now, her threats forgotten. He grinned again. He'd chosen fear. The pain would wait for later.

The Maltese Falcon To Body Of Lies by Robert Von Hallberg

The Cinema Of Michael Winterbottom by Bruce Bennett


Original Title: The Cinema Of Michael Winterbottom

This comprehensive study of prolific British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom explores the thematic, stylistic, and intellectual consistencies running through his eclectic and controversial body of work. Within an overview of his career, this volume undertakes a close analysis of fifteen of Winterbottom's films ranging from TV dramas to transnational coproductions featuring Hollywood stars, and from documentaries to costume films. This analysis is grounded in a consideration of Winterbottom's collaborative working practices, the political and cultural contexts of the work, and its critical reception. Arguing that Winterbottom's work comprises a 'cinema of borders', it examines its treatment of sexuality, class, ethnicity, national and international politics. The book argues that what is evident in Winterbottom's oeuvre is the search for an adequate means of narrating inequality, injustice, and violence. Drawing out the tensions, contradictions, and border-crossing strategies of these films, The Cinema of Michael Winterbottom highlights the complex political aesthetic that structures the work of this singular director.

Empire Of Lies by Guy Sorman


Original Title: Empire Of Lies

Before the totalitarian reign of Mao Zedong and his immediate successors, never in human history had an entire nation been under such intense surveillance. The Chinese not only had to speak alike; they had to think alike. Traveling to China regularly since 1967, and spending all of 2005 and 2006 there, Guy Sorman saw it all, and in this jaw-dropping book, he documents the horrifying stories of China through the 21st century. He shows how the Party's primary concern is not improving the lives of the downtrodden; it seeks power more than it seeks social development. It expends extraordinary energy in suppressing Chinese freedoms-the media operate under suffocating censorship, and political opposition can result in expulsion or prison-even as it tries to seduce the West, which has conferred greater legitimacy on it than do the Chinese themselves.

Crushed by Tope Fasua


Original Title: Crushed

CRUSH-ED is not another whining story about the African experience, even though the titled may lead in that direction. The title is really an acronym for the strategies that Africa (the sub-Saharan region in particular), must adopt if it is not to face extinction in the medium to long term. The book presents pungent, and urgent, analysis of the precarious situation that that region of Africa has found itself; a situation foisted not only by the historical facts of slaver trade and colonialism (as most texts on the subject are wont to aver), but most importantly the failure of the African states themselves to properly interpret their cultures and how those clash with the ones they are trying to adopt and adapt to. CRUSH-ED navigates the tortuous terrain, delivering enough kicks in the belly to all stakeholders; chiefly the Africans themselves, the colonisers, the dominant cultures, the superpowers, the politicians, and not least, the author himself! This book should refresh every reader, especially those that are ready to be objective and face some 'inconvenient truths', about the world... about themselves.
