• En attendant Doggo

    Mark Mills

    Il n'est pas beau, Doggo. Une vague ascendance épagneule. Un museau écrasé, façon pékinois accidenté. Et globalement chauve. Rien ne destinait donc Daniel, le raisonnable publicitaire, à s'enticher d'une horreur pareille. D'autant que ce chien est le seul vestige laissé par Clara, sa fiancée envolée du jour au lendemain. Ça, et un coeur brisé.
    Malgré leur méfiance réciproque, entre l'animal revêche et le loser patenté, c'est le début d'une véritable et hilarante complicité. Nouveau job, nouvelles conquêtes, nouveau destin... Et si Dan avait rencontré en Doggo son plus formidable allié, et le plus inattendu des Cupidon ?

  • Mark Mills, bestselling author of Amagansett, The Savage Garden, and The Information Officer, is renowned for blending riveting history, rich atmosphere, and thrilling suspense. Now, in House of the Hunted, Mills deftly unfolds a story of betrayal, love, and the inescapable pull of the past as an ex-spy finds himself drawn back into his treacherous former life.
    Côte dAzur, France, 1935: As Europe moves inexorably toward war, Tom Nash feels pleasantly removed, pursuing a quiet writing career on an idyllic stretch of the French Riveria. A former intelligence operative for the British government, Tom now finds refuge among the lively seaside community of expats and artists, hoping to put the worst deeds from his job--and memories of the woman he once loved--far behind him. But Toms peaceful existence is shattered when an unknown hit man tries to kill him in his sleep. Tom is sure that somebody knows his secrets, and that this attempt on his life wont be the last.
    Relying on his instincts for self-preservation, Tom suspects everyone of double-dealing, even people he considers his friends: the Russian art dealers from Paris, the exiled German dissidents, even his former boss and closest confidant. And as he plunges further into his haunted past, Tom feels himself turning into the person he used to be--a dangerous man, capable of anything.
    Combining vividly drawn characters and gripping acts of espionage, House of the Hunted is a superbly crafted novel by an exceptional and versatile storyteller.

  • Young Cambridge scholar Adam Banting is in Tuscany, assigned to write a scholarly monograph about the famous Docci garden-'a mysterious world of statues, grottoes, meandering rills, and classical inscriptions.

And as Adam delves into his subject, he begins to suspect that he is being used to discover the true meaning of the villa's murderous past.

  • This volume explores the effects of aquatic contaminants on ecological subsidies and food web exposure at the boundary of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. It provides the first synthesis of the findings and principles governing the "dark side" of contaminant effects on ecological subsidies. Furthermore, the volume provides extensive coverage of the tools being developed to help managers and researchers better understand the implications of contaminants movement and their effects on natural resources and ecosystem processes.  
    Aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems are linked through movements of energy and nutrients which subsidize recipient food webs. As a result, contaminants that concentrate in aquatic systems because of the effects of gravity on water and organic matter have the potential to impact both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem processes. Within the last decade, increased attention has been paid to this phenomenon, particularly the effects of aquatic contaminants on resource and contaminant export to terrestrial consumers, and the potential implications for management. This volume, curated and edited by three field leaders, incorporates empirical results, management applications and theoretical synthesis and is a key reference for academics, government researchers and consultants.
