Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "On the feast of St. Michael, September 1659, a thirteen-year-old peasant girl left her family's rural home to work as a maid in the nearby city of Brunswick. Just two years later, Grethe Schmidt found herself imprisoned and accused of murdering her bastard child. Filled with political intrigue, Death and a Maiden tells a fascinating story that began in the bedchamber of a house in Brunswick and ended at the court of Duke Augustus in the city of Wolfenbüttel. No one was ever able to prove conclusively that Grethe had been pregnant and no infant's body was ever found to justify her prosecution. But, from one accusation, Grethe's tale spiraled outward to set a defense lawyer and legal theorist against powerful city magistrates and then upward to a legal contest between that city and its overlord, the Duchy of Brunswick, with the city's ancient liberties hanging in the balance. Myers weaves the story of Grethe's arrest, torture, trial, and sentence for "suspected infanticide," into a detailed account of the workings of the criminal system in continental Europe, including the nature of interrogations, the process of torture, and the creation of a "criminal" identity over time. He presents an in-depth examination of a system in which torture was both legal and an important part of criminal investigations. This story serves as a captivating slice of European history as well as a highly informative look at the condition of poor women and the legal system in mid-17th century Germany. General readers and scholars alike will be riveted by Grethe's ordeal."--Publisher's website.

Book excerpt: “Suspenseful, riveting . . . Achieves a universality that is movingly personal.” —The New York Times The explosively provocative, award-winning drama set in a country that has just emerged from a totalitarian dictatorship Gerardo Escobar has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by the humane doctor Roberto Miranda. But in the voice of this good Samaritan, Gerardo's wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes another man—the one who raped and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before. Relentlessly paced and filled with lethal surprises, Death and the Maiden is an inquest into the darker side of humanity—one in which everyone is implicated and justice itself comes to seem like a fragile, perhaps ambiguous invention.

Book excerpt: Vienna, 1903. An operatic diva, Ida Rosenkrantz, is found dead in her luxurious villa. It appears that she has taken an overdose of morphine, but a broken rib, discovered during autopsy, suggests other and more sinister possibilities. Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt seeks the assistance of his young friend, the psychoanalyst Dr Max Liebermann, and they begin their inquiries at Vienna's majestic opera house, where its director, Gustav Mahler, is struggling to maintain a pure artistic vision while threatened on all sides by pompous bureaucrats, vainglorious singers, and a hostile press. When the demagogue Mayor of Vienna, Karl Lueger, becomes the prime suspect - with an election only months away - the Rosenkrantz case becomes politically explosive. The trail leads Rheinhardt and Liebermann, via a social climbing professor of psychiatry, to the Hofburg palace and the mysterious Lord Marshal's office - a shadowy bureau that deals ruthlessly with enemies of the ageing Emperor Franz Josef. As the investigation proceeds, the investigators are placed in great personal danger, as corruption is exposed at the very highest levels. Meanwhile, Liebermann pursues two private obsessions: a coded message in a piece of piano music, and the alluring Englishwoman, Miss Amelia Lydgate. Romance and high drama coincide as the Habsburg Empire teeters on the edge of scandal and ruin.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Superb...an appropriate homage"--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times The much-anticipated final installment in Ariana Franklin's popular Mistress of the Art of Death historical mystery series, finished by the author's daughter after her death. England. 1191. After the death of her friend and patron, King Henry II, Adelia Aguilar, England's vaunted Mistress of the Art of Death, is living comfortably in retirement and training her daughter, Allie, to carry on her craft--sharing the practical knowledge of anatomy, forensics, and sleuthing that catches murderers. Allie is already a skilled healer, with a particular gift for treating animals. But the young woman is nearly twenty, and her father, Rowley, Bishop of Saint Albans, and his patron, the formidable Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, have plans to marry Allie to an influential husband . . . if they can find a man who will appreciate a woman with such unusual gifts. When a friend in Cambridgeshire falls ill, Allie is sent to Ely, where her path will cross with Lord Peverill, a young aristocrat who would be a most suitable match for the young healer. But when Allie arrives, all is chaos. A village girl has disappeared--and she's not the first. Over the past few months, several girls from the villages surrounding Ely have vanished. When the body of one of the missing is discovered, Allie manages to examine the remains before burial. The results lead her to suspect that a monstrous predator is on the loose. Will her training and her stubborn pursuit of the truth help her find the killer...or make her the next victim? A richly detailed, twisty thriller, Death and the Maiden is historical mystery at its finest--and a superb final episode in Ariana Franklin's much-loved, much-acclaimed series.

Download or read book Bruce Dickinson Maiden Voyage The Biography written by Joe Shooman and published by Bonnier Zaffre. This book was released on 2016-08-04 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bruce Dickinson is the instantly-recognisable frontman of heavy metal behemoths Iron Maiden. But there is so much more than a set of fine lungs to this hyperactive life-grabber, for whom it seems standing still is going backwards. The man once dubbed 'The Air Raid Siren' has also enjoyed hugely successful parallel careers as a fiction author, world-class fencing competitor, history expert, radio and TV presenter, movie maker, commercial pilot, inspirational speaker and entrepreneur. Since he re-joined Iron Maiden in 1999 they have continued to explore and develop, taking metal into ever more unchartered territories, as they blend a progressive outlook with a fearless approach that pushes at the very boundaries of the genre. In 2015, the voice, and the life, of Iron Maiden's singer were placed in the cruellest jeopardy as he was diagnosed with a golf-ball sized cancerous tumour on his tongue. Undaunted, Dickinson set to his recovery with the energy of one for whom a night's sleep is an irritant amidst the serious – and sometimes silly – matter of wringing every last drop out of life. There could only ever be one winner. Since his return to fitness, Iron Maiden have released an acclaimed sixteenth album, The Book of Souls, for which the singer changed hats between gigs, flying the band around the world as captain of Maiden's special airliner, Ed Force One. This first biography of Bruce Dickinson tells his story through exclusive interviews with those who know him best, including first accounts by ex-members of Iron Maiden including fellow one-time vocalists Paul Di'Anno and Blaze Bayley. From his formative days straddling the upsurge of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, through his solo years and up to his present day legendary status, this is the ultimate rock 'n' roll story.
