Game of Shadows
In the final days of World War II, a mysterious German U-boat was seen by a United States naval vessel in the Atlantic Ocean, just north of South America.
Before the ship could fire upon the sub, it vanished.
History tells us that, after the war, the German high command scattered across world hoping to evade punishment for their crimes.
What it doesn't tell us is what they took with them.
Many of these things have been discovered but there is one that remains hidden. It was one of the most well-hidden, secretive experiments the Nazis carried out during the war and now someone is trying to unearth it.
If they succeed, it could bring civilization to its knees.

Garden Of Beasts
In the most ingenious and provocative thriller yet from the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver, a conscience-plagued mobster turned government hitman struggles to find his moral compass amid rampant treachery and betrayal in 1936 Berlin.
Paul Schumann, a German American living in New York City in 1936, is a mobster hitman known as much for his brilliant tactics as for taking only “righteous” assignments. But then Paul gets caught. And the arresting officer offers him a stark choice: prison or covert government service. Paul is asked to pose as a journalist covering the summer Olympics taking place in Berlin. He’s to hunt down and kill Reinhard Ernst – the ruthless architect of Hitler’s clandestine rearmament. If successful, Paul will be pardoned and given the financial means to go legit; if he refuses the job, his fate will be Sing Sing and the electric chair.
Paul travels to Germany, takes a room in a boardinghouse near the Tiergarten – the huge park in central Berlin but also, literally, the “ Garden of Beasts ” – and begins his hunt.
In classic Deaver fashion, the next forty-eight hours are a feverish cat-and-mouse chase, as Paul stalks Ernst through Berlin while a dogged Berlin police officer and the entire Third Reich apparatus search frantically for the American. Garden of Beasts is packed with fascinating period detail and features a cast of perfectly realized locals, Olympic athletes and senior Nazi officials – some real, some fictional. With hairpin plot twists, the reigning “master of ticking-bomb suspense” (People) plumbs the nerve-jangling paranoia of prewar Berlin and steers the story to a breathtaking and wholly unpredictable ending.
Maureen O'Donnell wasn't born lucky. A psychiatric patient and survivor of sexual abuse, she's stuck in a dead-end job and a secretive relationship with Douglas, a shady therapist. Her few comforts are making up stories to tell her psychiatrist, the company of friends, and the sweet balm of whisky. She is about to end her affair with Douglas when she wakes up one morning to find him in her living room with his throat slit.
Viewed in turn by the police as a suspect and as an uncooperative, unstable witness, Maureen is even suspected by her alcoholic mother and self-serving sisters of being involved. Worse than that, the police won't tell her anything about Douglas 's death.
Panic-stricken and feeling betrayed by friends and family, Maureen begins to doubt her own version of events. She retraces Douglas's desperate last days and picks up a horrifying trail of rape, deception… and suppressed scandal at a local psychiatric hospital where she had been an inmate. But the patients won't talk and the staff are afraid, and when a second brutalized corpse is discovered, Maureen realises that unless she gets to the killer first, her life is in danger.
Enero de 1944. Las tropas aliadas se prepararan para el día D y el mundo entero espera la invasión aliada de Europa. Pero en Inglaterra, Winston Churchill ha descubierto que los científicos nazis han desarrollado un gas nervioso tóxico que puede repeler y eliminar cualquier fuerza invasora, el arma química final. Sólo una jugada desesperada puede evitar el desastre.
Para salvar el planificado asalto, dos hombres muy diferentes pero igualmente decididos -un médico pacifista estadounidense y un fanático sionista – son enviados a infiltrarse en el campo de concentración secreto donde está siendo perfeccionado el gas venenoso en seres humanos.
Sus únicos aliados: una joven viuda judía que lucha para salvar a sus hijos y una enfermera alemana que es la imagen de la perfección aria. Su único objetivo: destruir todos los rastros del gas y los hombres que la crearon, sin importar cuántas vidas se pueden perder, incluso las suyas propias…
Lo que se ven obligados a hacer en el nombre de la victoria y la supervivencia demuestra con terrible claridad que, en un mundo donde todo esta en juego, la guerra no tiene reglas.
Desde la primera página, Greg Iles lleva a sus lectores en un viaje en montaña rusa emocional, escenas de acción llenas de tensión, representaciones horribles de crueldad y descripciones de sacrificio y valentía.
Un padre infanticida apuñalado en su coche en el bosque de Vincennes. El cadáver de una estudiante de biología descubierto en la jaula de un primate, aparentemente asesinada por uno de los animales. Los restos de una familia de neandertales a los que mató un cromañón hallados en una grieta en la cumbre de un macizo alpino. El asesino de niños Grégory Carnot encontrado muerto en su celda. Un médico obstetra que investiga sobre genética salvajemente asesinado en su domicilio de Montmartre. ¿Qué invisible hilo une estos crímenes atroces, cometidos con 30.000 años de diferencia?
Destrozada por una terrible pérdida, devorada y espoleada por el odio, Lucie Henebelle se lanza sobre la pista de los asesinos junto a Franck Sharko, igualmente incapaz de olvidar la terrible experiencia vivida. Una investigación que, a través de la genética, les conducirá a las raíces del mal.
Quel lien entre onze psychopathes gauchers et l'homme de Cro-Magnon ?
Alors que Lucie Henebelle peine à se remettre de ses traumatismes, l'ex-commissaire Sharko se voit relégué à des enquêtes de seconde zone. Telle la découverte du corps de cette jeune scientifique, battue à mort par un grand singe.
À nouveau réunis pour le pire, les deux flics plongent aux origines de la violence, là où le génome humain détermine son avenir : l'extinction.
Bienvenue à GATACA…

As a Chinese adoptee in St. Louis, teenage Daiyu often feels out of place. When an elderly Asian jewelry seller at a street fair shows her a black jade ring – and tells her that 'black jade' translates to 'Daiyu' – she buys it as a talisman of her heritage. But it's more than that; it's magic. It takes Daiyu through a gateway into a version of St. Louis much like 19th century China. Almost immediately she is recruited as a spy, which means hours of training in manners and niceties and sleight of hand. It also means stealing time to be with handsome Kalen, who is in on the plan. There's only one problem. Once her task is done, she must go back to St. Louis and leave him behind forever…
That's right: Serge and Coleman do spring break!
It's been a long time coming, but they're at the party now – and you'll never look at a Frisbee the same way again.
One spring break location obviously isn't enough for Serge, so he must hit them all, traveling through various historic locales, spewing nuggets of history at anyone who won't run away and dispensing his own signature brand of Sunshine State justice.
Along the way he and his sidekick, Coleman, attract a growing following of the nation's top college students… and a mysterious gang that leaves a trail of young bodies in their wake.
Are the kids safer under Serge's protection? Or does being with him put them in more peril? The classroom and the pot brownies never prepared them for this.
Which raises more questions: Who's the guy studying satellite photos? Where did the protected witness go? When did Coleman get all those trophies? Why are the Feds hot on everyone's trail? How did the burnt corpse end up by the pool? What's the best way to keep beer cool on the beach?
Then there are the coke smugglers gone legit and a pair of the most dangerously sexy bartenders to ever mix a rum runner. Throw in some dirty dancing contests, illicit drugs, rockin' tunes, screamin' sports cars, bungee rides, pawned class rings, and church breakfasts, and you've got a potent concoction that keeps the hotel's concierge up all night stopping people from falling off the balconies.
Want even more? Serge says, "You got it!"
After years of quiet, a legendary Miami kingpin from the anything-goes eighties is suddenly back in the news… along with one of the state's most psychotic homicidal monsters, every bit as criminally insane as Serge – except without the morals.
The mysteries continue to mount: How did Coleman end up with even more disciples than Serge? Can kids successfully climb fences while carrying pizzas? Will Serge survive the carnage, armed with a GPS and a kiddie pool?
All will soon be answered – and of course every last moment is caught on tape as Serge creates his most excellent documentary ever, the making of Gator A-Go-Go.
Pack the cooler, load the car, and head to where the water is warm for a spring vacation you won't soon forget – no matter how much you might try!
