ggf. zzgl. Versand

In New York Times best-selling author Andrew Gross' propulsive thriller, set amid the drought-stricken oil country of Colorado's beautiful high plains, Ty Hauck makes his long-awaited return rallying beaten-down farmers and ranchers against a giant energy company in a deadly confrontation involving murder, retaliation, and cover-up. Leading a tour down the rapids outside Aspen, Colorado, whitewater guide Dani Haller comes upon the dead body of a close friend. Trey Watkins' death is ruled an accident. Finding evidence that seems to back up her suspicions that it wasn't, she takes her case to Wade Dunn, the local police chief and her ex-stepfather, with whom she shares some unresolved history. Wade insists the case is closed, but Rooster, a hot air balloon operator in town, claims he saw something from the air she should know. When he suddenly dies in a fiery crash, Dani threatens to take her suspicions public, goading Wade into tossing her in jail. When an old friend contacts Ty Hauck and says his daughter is in trouble, he doesn't hesitate to get involved. Together the two step into a sinister scheme running deep beneath the surface of a quiet, Colorado town that has made a deal with the devil to survive. But in the square off between giant energy companies and beaten-down ranchers and farmers, one resource is even more valuable in this drought-stricken region than oil - water. They both will kill for it. One Mile Under is a thrilling rapid run of hair-raising twists and unforeseen turns set against one of the most provocative environmental issues of our time. 1.

Tattooed bad boy James Bowen is about to marry the love of his life. Everything would be perfect if it wasn't for the tiny detail that his bride-to-be is freaking out big time. And trying to hide it from him. Tate Cooper is losing it. She loves James with all her heart and wants to be married to him; it's the getting married that's killing her. Still grieving the loss of her father and brother, Tate just can't shake her fear and sadness. Add to that the stress of the wedding, and she's in full emotional meltdown. But James deserves a happy bride, not a high-maintenance, sorrow-filled, guilt-stricken one, and by God, she's going to give him that, even if she has to paste on a smile and fake it till she makes it. James can see through her front, and he doesn't know whether to be amused or pissed. He understands she's running scared, her fear of loss making it hard for her to fully commit, but there is no way in hell he's going to allow this to continue; he's going to push her to confront her fears until she happily embraces their ever after. 1.

How to Build a Girl , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 571min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

What do you do in your teenage years when you realize what your parents taught you wasn't enough? You must go out and find books and poetry and pop songs and bad heroes - and build yourself. It's 1990. Johanna Morrigan, 14, has shamed herself so badly on local TV that she decides that there's no point in being Johanna anymore and reinvents herself as Dolly Wilde - fast-talking, hard-drinking gothic hero and full-time Lady Sex Adventurer. She will save her poverty-stricken Bohemian family by becoming a writer - like Jo in Little Women, or the Brontës - but without the dying-young bit. By 16, she's smoking cigarettes, getting drunk, and working for a music paper. She's writing pornographic letters to rock stars, having all the kinds of sex with all the kinds of men, and eviscerating bands in reviews of 600 words or less. But what happens when Johanna realizes she's built Dolly with a fatal flaw? Is a box full of records, a wall full of posters, and a head full of paperbacks enough to build a girl after all? Imagine The Bell Jar - written by Rizzo from Grease. How to Build a Girl is a funny, poignant, and heartbreakingly evocative story of self-discovery and invention, as only Caitlin Moran could tell it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Louise Brealey.

Intermittent Fasting: Burn Fat Extra Fast, Gain...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mankind has been fasting for centuries and throughout history. Sometimes, the fasting wasn't exactly a voluntary activity. In the hunter gatherer communities, mankind could go for long hours or probably days without food. Fast forward to the time when man started having organized religion. Fasting is a religious activity that has been in practice for thousands of years; many religious organizations or groups such as the Christians, Muslims and even the Jewish incorporate fasting as part of their religious activities. For instance, it is not surprising to see a Muslim going on 40 days fast in preparation for the Ramadan. While fasting has, for a long time, been associated with the lack of food and religion, the practice of fasting is now taking a different direction. People are now fasting for a different reason. For instance, in recent times, fasting now supersedes a religious activity. It has come to be known as a health boosting activity. So what's the difference between that and starving for days without food as we see happening in some poverty stricken parts of the world? Well, the difference is that there is a way of fasting that makes you attain these benefits; you just don't go without food for days then expect to be healthy! So how do you go about fasting in a good way to obtain the different benefits? The most popular type of fasting that serves as a boost to health is known as the intermittent fasting. This book will serve as a master guide on how to achieve optimal health with intermittent fasting. It will cover various aspects of intermittent fasting such as the clear definition of the term intermittent fasting, health benefits and challenges associate 1. Language: English.

Heath Ledger: His Beautiful Life and Mysterious...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Young, cocksure, handsome and absurdly talented, Australian actor Heath Ledger shot to prominence with his first Hollywood film "10 Things I Hate About You": and a star was born. With huge charisma and smouldering looks lighting up the screen in a series of subsequent films, Heath was soon established as Hollywood A-list, dating a series of beauties such as Heather Graham and Naomi Watts, and living every young man's dream. But it was his award-winning and controversial role as Ennis Del Mar in "Brokeback Mountain" that cemented his place in the pantheon of acting greats - he was one of the youngest people ever to be nominated for an Oscar. And it was on the set of this film that he fell in love with his co-star Michelle Williams. Though the relationship wasn't to last, the couple had a daughter in 2005. With the world at his feet and a film-stealing turn in the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight", in the can, there was worldwide shock and disbelief when the news broke that he had been found dead in his New York apartment on 22 January 2008. Prescription drugs, found next to his dead body, were thought to be the cause, but mystery surrounded the circumstances. Was it an accidental death? Or were the pressures of life in the spotlight too great to bear? What is certain is that this young man, who touched the lives of so many people, leaves behind a grief-stricken public and family, including a two-year-old daughter. This is the tragic story of the brilliant actor whose light shone so brightly but all too briefly upon the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Sinfield.
