The necromancers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach - scourges of civilization, raisers of the dead, reapers of the souls of the living, devourers of hope, betrayers of faith, slayers of the innocent and modest personifications of evil - have a lot to answer for and answer they will, but first they must lie, murder and cheat their way through three more escapades in some of the deprived fringes and impoverished communities of the Malazan Empire. Much to the shame of their long-suffering general factotum, Emancipoor Reese... Here then - for readers´ delectation and entertainment - are those escapades, namely the novellas The Wurms of Blearmouth, The Crack´d Pot Trail and The Fiends of Nightmaria . . .
Three never-before-collected short stories from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. In ´´Cahoots´´, a backroom poker game turns deadly when a cheater is exposed. In ´´Mulholland Dive´´, a man who deciphers the hidden codes of accident scenes investigates a fatality off L.A.´s most fabled roadway. In ´´Two-Bagger´´, an obsessed cop tails an ex-con he believes is about to carry out a contract killing. Together these gripping, unforgettable stories show that Michael Connelly ´´knows the workings of the LAPD and the streets of the City of Angels like he knows his own name´´ (Boston Globe). 1.

Rich with humour, insight, compassion - and absolute honesty - Tiny Beautiful Things is a balm for everything life throws our way, administered by the author of the New York Times -bestselling memoir, Wild Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you, you lose a family member, you can´t pay the bills. But it can be pretty great, too: you´ve had the hottest sex of your life, you get that plum job, you muster the courage to write your novel. Everyday across the world, people go through the full and glorious gamut of life - but sometimes, a little advice is needed. For several years, thousands turned to Cheryl Strayed, a then-anonymous internet Agony Aunt. But unlike most Agony Aunts, this one´s advice was spun from genuine compassion and informed by a wealth of personal experience - experience that was sometimes tragic and sometimes tender, often hilarious and often heartbreaking. Having successfully battled her own demons while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Cheryl Strayed sat down to answer the letters of the frightened, the anxious, the confused; and with each gem-like correspondence - of which the best are collected in this volume - she proved to be the perfect guide for those who had got a little lost in life.
