Mystère et suspense sur la presqu’île de Quiberon ! Tout baigne pour Ronnie, jeune « escort boy » qui loue ses charmes à des quinquagénaires de la presqu’île de Quiberon. Mais, à quelques jours d’intervalle, deux de ses clientes trouvent la mort dans des conditions mystérieuses. Voilà qui n’arrange pas les affaires du gigolo, qui voit la gendarmerie, sous la conduite du lieutenant Menotti, faire irruption dans sa vie et mettre en péril son petit commerce. Pendant ce temps, un directeur de maison de retraite peu scrupuleux projette un très mauvais coup pour renflouer les caisses de son établissement... À travers les paysages sauvages de la presqu’île, des destins s’entrecroisent en de sanglants chassés-croisés. Les coupables ne seront démasqués qu’au terme d’un suspense haletant. Menez l'enquête avec ce polar captivant et riche en rebondissements ! EXTRAIT Depuis six mois, elle recourait aux services de Ronnie. Son amie Annie lui avait expliqué comment contacter le jeune homme. À présent, Magda s’amusait de l’appréhension qui l’habitait lors de leur première rencontre. Jusqu’au dernier moment, alors qu’elle l’attendait dans cette même chambre, elle avait été tentée de prendre ses jambes à son cou. Que de chemin parcouru depuis ! Désormais, Magda devait admettre qu’elle aurait beaucoup de mal à se passer de la parenthèse hebdomadaire qu’elle ouvrait avec Ronnie. Il se montrait attentionné, d’une bonne humeur constante, et comme amant, même si ce terme n’était, bien sûr, pas tout à fait approprié, à même de lui apporter ce qu’elle désirait. Le seul moment déplaisant, auquel Magda ne pouvait décidément pas s’habituer, restait celui du paiement de la prestation. De plus, cet animal de Ronnie ne perdait pas le nord et augmentait régulièrement ses tarifs, sachant très bien qu’elle n’oserait pas marchander. Mais c’était le prix à payer, jamais expression n’avait été plus juste.

Interest in heroin is surging back after years of dormancy. Why? Supply and demand! Drug cartels have increased the supply of heroin, so that it is cheaper and purer than ever before. Secondly, the Federal government’s recent crack down on poplar prescription opiates like OxcyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin so they are increasingly hard and costly to obtain on the black market. A recent study reveals that people who had recently abused prescription opiates are 19th times more likely to try heroin. Fueled by a boom in supply and a decline in cost, heroin use is up around the nation and spreading to segments of the population once considered unlikely users. "Cool people are doing it!” Remember the old slogan: "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll”? Heroin has a sexy side--very sexy. Black Opium: Ecstasy of the Forbidden brings heroin’s sexy visions to life. The world of black opium is a forbidden world where human bodies find themselves possessed and driven by desires which consume them in the flames of hot-blooded ecstasy, Black Opium describes every aspect of an opium smoker’s life in lurid detail. Often compared to James Joyces' Dubliners, Farrère’s Black Opium consists of seventeen compelling tales delineating six periods in the history and use of opium. This edition of Black Opium is a reissue of And/Or Press’ 1974 Fitz Hugh Ludlow edition, which features salacious illustrations by Alexander King, and the addition of a Foreword by Dr. Moraes.

Gabrielle Roy was one of the most prominent Canadian authors of the twentieth century. Joyce Marshall, an excellent writer herself, was one of Roy's English translators. The two shared a deep and long-lasting friendship based on a shared interest in language and writing. In Translation offers a critical examination of the more than two hundred letters exchanged by Roy and Marshall between 1959 and 1980. In their letters, Roy and Marshall exchange news about their general health and well-being, their friends and family, their surroundings, their travels, and other writers, as well as their dealings with critics, editors, and publishers. They recount comical incidents and strange encounters in their lives, and reflect on human nature, current events, and, from time to time, their writing. Of particular interest to the two women were the problems they encountered during the translation process. Many passages in the letters concern the ways in which the nuances of language can be shaped through translation. Editor Jane Everett has arranged the letters here in chronological order and has added critical notes to fill in the historical and literary gaps, as well as to identify various editorial problems. Shedding light on the process of writing and translating, In Translation is an invaluable addition to the study of Canadian writing and to the literature on these two important figures.

The Havana Room is the tale of a man from his fall from the heights of power and wealth in New York to the moment where he might well die. Bill Wyeth is a successful real-estate attorney in his late thirties with a wife and son, who, by the merest chance, loses everything: family, job, status. Unmoored and alone, Wyeth drifts toward the city's darker corners. Restoration seems unlikely, redemption impossible, when Wyeth finds himself in an old-time Manhattan steakhouse. He is intrigued by the manager, Allison Sparks--sexy, complicated, and independent in all ways. She also controls access to the restaurant's private bar. This is the Havana Room, and what goes on in there, he's told, is secret. Wyeth agrees to help Alison's friend, Jay Rainey, in concluding a last-minute midnight real-estate transaction. As soon as he sees the players and the paperwork, Wyeth knows something is wrong. Within hours, Wyeth finds himself tangled in Rainey's peculiar obsessions, which involve a Chilean businessman who feels he's been swindled, an old farmer frozen dead to a bulldozer, an outrageous black owner of a downtown hiphop club, and a fourteen-year-old English girl. Only Rainey knows the connections among these people, which are revealed when Wyeth is finally admitted to the Havana Room--where the survival of its inhabitants is most uncertain.

What did Jesus teach? Distilled from years of study and lecture, affirmed by nearly a million readers over the last fifty years, Emmet Fox's answer in The Sermon on the Mount is simple. The Bible is a "textbook of metaphysics" and the teachings of Jesus express--without dogma--a practical approach for the development of the soul and for the shaping of our lives into what we really wish them to be. For Fox, Jesus was "no sentimental dreamer, no mere dealer in empty platitudes, but the unflinching realist that only a great mystic can be." In his most popular work, Emmet Fox shows how to: Understand the true nature of divine wisdom. Tap into the power of prayer. Develop a completely integrated and fully expressed personality. Transform negative attitudes into life-affirming beliefs. Claim our divine right to the full abundance of life.

The Classic Bestselling Saga by Science Fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg Plagued by nightmares of Majipoor besieged by blizzards and earthquakes, Lord Valentine believes these omens signal an encroaching war between his people and the Shapeshifters who once ruled the planet. For centuries they have conspired to regain their stolen world and recently, they were discovered impersonating members of the kingdom’s inner circle. Since coming to power, Valentine has made peaceful overtures to the Shapeshifters, actions that have many in the royal court questioning his motives and loyalties—and led them to consider removing him from his governing duties so that he may ascend to the higher ceremonial office of Pontifex. But if Valentine accepts the mantle of Pontifex and surrenders his position to his successor-in-waiting, he may be remembered as a leader who evaded his responsibilities—and shattered the peace that has reigned for eight thousand years...
