Cheat The Cherry Master: Harry Endres
Las Vegas is a city with a past, a place where visitors dream of hitting it big. A town with a glittering strip just blocks away from its seedy underbelly. A town where those dreams are born, used up and spit out like an over-the-hill showgirl clinging to the tattered remnants of her youth. Harry is one of the dreamers, a cheat at cards who has just gotten out of prison. He´s ready to find the big pay off on the strip, with a new fool-proof way to take the whales. 1. Language: English.

Peter Carey´s first novel and first Miles Franklin winner, Bliss remains a work ahead of its time. It takes dying during a heart attack for Harry Joy to realise that the life he thought was happy is actually hellish. His wife is a cheat, his kids are a source of shame, his company spruiks carcinogens. While Harry is resuscitated, he will never be the same, for, having seen his own misery, he can no longer deny the injustice around him. But before he can be redeemed, a whole new perdition awaits him in this darkly funny and prescient fable about the idiocy of defiling nature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Humphrey Bower.

The Moonraker project has a millionaire backer, the war hero Sir Hugo Drax - a man who, it seems, cheats at cards. With a ballistic rocket at stake, Sir Hugo’s exposure could threaten Britain’s latest defence system, so James Bond is asked to investigate. Moving from London’s most exclusive gambling club to a missile silo on the Channel coast, 007 and his Special Branch assistant, Gala Brand, discover there’s more to Drax than meets the eye. Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Bill Nighy. Ian Fleming was born in London in 1908.

When a rogue 19-year-old witch is recruited to help guard an ancient magical Bestiary, a breath-stealing journey begins... _____________________________________________ Being an empath has its advantages. Harley Merlin can sense people´s emotions, among other things. It´s how she snagged her first job pinpointing cheaters at a casino. But she has no clue where she got these freakish powers because she spent her childhood jumping from home to home in the foster system, and her father left her with nothing more than a cryptic note. Then she crosses paths with a terrifyingly real monster. Which is when a mysterious and annoyingly arrogant young warlock named Wade Crowley steps in, introducing her to a hidden world of beasts, magicals, and covens riddled with secrets-as well as clues about her murky past. Whether she likes it or not, this new world is where she belongs. But after a disturbing twist of events, Harley quickly realizes that her past is darker than she could ever have imagined. And that someone in the coven is out for her blood. With the help of Wade and her new friends, she must figure out who the traitor is and why they´re targeting her... Before the human and magical worlds dangerously collide.
