Book Flashback  Anna Pigeon Mysteries  Book 11

Download or read book Flashback Anna Pigeon Mysteries Book 11 written by Nevada Barr and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-06-06 with total page 375 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cut off from civilisation, can Anna weather the coming storm? Flashback is the eleventh riveting Anna Pigeon novel from acclaimed crime writer Nevada Barr. Perfect for fans of Sue Grafton and Paul Doiron. 'What lifts the Anna Pigeon novels far above most other contemporary amateur sleuth mysteries is Barr's exquisite writing - it swoops, it soars, sails then catches you unawares beneath the heart and takes your breath away' - Cleveland Plain Dealer Escaping a proposal of marriage from Sheriff Paul Davidson, Anna Pigeon takes a post as a temporary supervisory ranger on remote Garden Key in Dry Tortugas National Park, a grouping of tiny islands in a natural harbour seventy miles off Key West. This island paradise has secrets it would keep, not just in the present, but in shadows from its gritty past, when it served as a prison during the Civil War, and for the Lincoln assassination conspirators afterwards. Here, on this last lick of the United States, in a giant crumbling fortress, Anna has little company besides the occasional sunburned tourist or unruly shrimper. When her sister, Molly, sends her a packet of letters from a great-great-aunt who lived at the fort with her husband, a career soldier, Anna's fantasy is filled with visions of this long-ago time. But a mysterious boat explosion and the discovery of unidentifiable body parts keeps Anna anchored to the present, and she soon finds crimes of yesterday and today closing in on her. A tangled web that was woven before she arrived threatens her sanity and her life. Cut off from the mainland by miles of water, poor phone service, and sketchy radio contact, Anna must find answers and weather a storm that rivals the hurricanes for which the islands are famous. What readers are saying about Flashback: 'You'll be gripping the edge of your seat with tension whilst you read... I couldn't keep my nose out of it till I'd read it in two days!' 'I was captivated by the roller coaster storytelling' 'This [book] was fabulous... truly a page turner that I couldn't put down'

Book Blind Descent  Anna Pigeon Mysteries  Book 6

Download or read book Blind Descent Anna Pigeon Mysteries Book 6 written by Nevada Barr and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-05-09 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During a rescue attempt, Anna Pigeon learns who she can trust... Blind Descent is the sixth instalment in Nevada Barr's spellbinding crime series featuring park ranger heroine Anna Pigeon. Perfect for fans of Paul Doiron and Janet Evanovich. 'Barr's description of this Stygian underworld - so beautiful, so mysterious and so treacherous - have a stunning visceral quality, largely because of her heroine's affinity with the natural world' - New York Times Book Review Lechuguilla Cavern is a man-eating cave discovered in New Mexico's Carlsbad Caverns National Park in the mid-1980s. Estimated to extend for more than three hundred miles, only ninety of them mapped, the cave was formed by acid burning away the limestone; corridors, pits, cramped wormholes, cliffs, and splendid rooms the size of football fields tangle together in a maze shrouded in the utter darkness of the underground. When a fellow ranger is injured in a caving accident, Anna swallows her paralyzing fear of small spaces and descends into Lechuguilla to help a friend in need. Worse than the claustrophobia that haunts her are the signs - some natural and some, more ominously, manmade - that not everyone is destined to emerge from this wondrous living tomb. The terrain is alien and hostile; the greed and destructive powers of mankind all too familiar. In this place of internal terrors, Anna must learn who it is she can trust and, in the end, decide who is to live and who is to die. What readers are saying about Blind Descent: 'It's a great pleasure to sit down with each book in this series' 'Readers will feel, see, smell, and touch every step that Nevada Barr makes in her underground trek as if they are part of the rescue party' 'A great mystery; very atmospheric'

Book Screening Transcendence

Download or read book Screening Transcendence written by Robert Dassanowsky and published by Indiana University Press. This book was released on 2018-05-01 with total page 444 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the 1930s, Austrian film production companies developed a process to navigate the competing demands of audiences in Nazi Germany and those found in broader Western markets. In Screening Transcendence, film historian Robert Dassanowsky explores how Austrian filmmakers during the Austrofascist period (1933–1938) developed two overlapping industries: "Aryanized" films for distribution in Germany, its largest market, and "Emigrantenfilm," which employed émigré and Jewish talent that appealed to international audiences. Through detailed archival research in both Vienna and the United States, Dassanowsky reveals what was culturally, socially, and politically at stake in these two simultaneous and overlapping film industries. Influenced by French auteurism, admired by Italian cinephiles, and ardently remade by Hollywood, these period Austrian films demonstrate a distinctive regional style mixed with transnational influences. Combining brilliant close readings of individual films with thoroughly informed historical and cultural observations, Dassanowsky presents the story of a nation and an industry mired in politics, power, and intrigue on the brink of Nazi occupation.
