4 Poseidon's Arrow - Clive Cussler & Dirk Cussler
Auteur : Clive Cussler & Dirk Cussler
Genre : Action & Adventure
In this adventure in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, oceanographer Dirk Pitt is back to find a crucial piece of marine tech that could reshape the United States’ defense program...

It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades—an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing—and the man who developed it is dead.

At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, and when a few reappear, bodies are found aboard burned to a crisp. Could these mysterious events be connected to an Italian submarine that itself disappeared in 1943?

It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitt’s children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, to go on a desperate international cha

Maladies
5 The Emperor of All Maladies - Siddhartha Mukherjee
Auteur : Siddhartha Mukherjee
Genre : History
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and now a documentary from Ken Burns on PBS, The Emperor of All Maladies is a magnificent, profoundly humane “biography” of cancer—from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence.

Physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective, and a biographer’s passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with—and perished from—for more than five thousand years.

The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance, but also of hubris, paternalism, and misperception. Mukherjee recounts centuries of d

From America's Queen of Suspense comes a gripping tale of a young woman trying to unravel the mystery of a family tragedy -- a quest with terrifying repercussions.

It has been ten years since twenty-one-year-old Charles MacKenzie Jr. ("Mack") went missing. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already accepted at Duke University Law School, he walked out of his apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side without a word to his college roommates and has never been seen again. However, he does make one ritual phone call to his mother every year: on Mother's Day. Each time, he assures her he is fine, refuses to answer her frantic questions, then hangs up. Even the death of his father, a corporate lawyer, in the tragedy of 9/11 does not bring him home or break the pattern of his calls.

Astoria
17 Astoria - Peter Stark
Auteur : Peter Stark
Genre : History
In the tradition of The Lost City of Z and Skeletons in the Zahara, Astoria is the thrilling, true-adventure tale of the 1810 Astor Expedition, an epic, now forgotten, three-year journey to forge an American empire on the Pacific Coast. Peter Stark offers a harrowing saga in which a band of explorers battled nature, starvation, and madness to establish the first American settlement in the Pacific Northwest and opened up what would become the Oregon trail, permanently altering the nation's landscape and its global standing.

Six years after Lewis and Clark's began their journey to the Pacific Northwest, two of the Eastern establishment's leading figures, John Jacob Astor and Thomas Jefferson, turned their sights to founding a colony akin to Jamestown on the West Coast and transforming the nation into a Pacific trading power.

Desperado
18 American Desperado - Jon Roberts & Evan Wright
Auteur : Jon Roberts & Evan Wright
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
The true story of super-criminal Jon Roberts, star of the documentary Cocaine Cowboys. 
 
American Desperado is Roberts’ no-holds-barred account of being born into Mafia royalty, witnessing his first murder at the age of seven, becoming a hunter-assassin in Vietnam, returning to New York to become--at age 22--one of the city’s leading nightclub impresarios, then journeying to Miami where in a few short years he would rise to become the Medellin Cartel’s most effective smuggler.
 
But that’s just half the tale. 
 
The roster of Roberts’ friends and acquaintances reads like a Who’s Who of the latter half of the 20th century and includes everyone from Jimi Hendrix, Richard Pryor, and O.J. Simpson to Carlo Gambino, Meyer Lansky, and Manuel Noriega.
 
Nothing if not colorful, Robert

A man returns to the town where a baffling murder took place 27 years earlier, determined to get to the bottom of the story.

Her distraught family forced her to name her first lover; and her twin brothers announced their intention to murder Santiago Nasar for dishonoring their sister.

Auteur : Caroline C. Leighton
Genre : United States
We have had our first sight of land Mariguana a coral island, one of the Bahamas. Every one stood in silence to see it, it was so beautiful. The spray dashed so high, that as it fell, we at first took it for streams and cascades. It was just at sunrise and we cast longing looks at the soft green hills bathed in light. Now it is gone and we have only the wide ocean again. But a new color has appeared in the water a purplish pink which looks very tropical and there are blotches of yellow seaweed. Some of it caught in the wheel and stopped it. The sailors drew it up and gave it to the children to taste. It was like a little fruit and they say the birds eat it.

A groundbreaking manifesto about what our nation’s top schools should be—but aren’t—providing: “The ex-Yale professor effectively skewers elite colleges, their brainy but soulless students (those ‘sheep’), pushy parents, and admissions mayhem” (People).

As a professor at Yale, William Deresiewicz saw something that troubled him deeply. His students, some of the nation’s brightest minds, were adrift when it came to the big questions: how to think critically and creatively and how to find a sense of purpose. Now he argues that elite colleges are turning out conformists without a compass.

Excellent Sheep takes a sharp look at the high-pressure conveyor belt that begins with parents and counselors who demand perfect grades and culminates in the skewed applications Deresiewicz saw firsthand as a member of Yale’s admissions committee. As

39 Hunger of Memory - Richard Rodríguez
Auteur : Richard Rodríguez
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Hunger of Memory is the story of Mexican-American Richard Rodriguez, who begins his schooling in Sacramento, California, knowing just 50 words of English, and concludes his university studies in the stately quiet of the reading room of the British Museum.

Here is the poignant journey of a “minority student” who pays the cost of his social assimilation and academic success with a painful alienation — from his past, his parents, his culture — and so describes the high price of “making it” in middle-class America.

Provocative in its positions on affirmative action and bilingual education, Hunger of Memory is a powerful political statement, a profound study of the importance of language ... and the moving, intimate portrait of a boy struggling to become a man.

Escobar
42 Pablo Escobar mi padre - Juan Pablo Escobar
Auteur : Juan Pablo Escobar
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Hasta ahora creíamos que se había contado todo sobre el narcotraficante Pablo Escobar, el peor criminal en la historia de América Latina. Sobre él han escrito las mejores plumas, los más reputados periodistas y hasta sus hermanos. El celuloide también ha recreado la vida del delincuente. No obstante, su historia siempre fue contada desde afuera, nunca desde la intimidad de su entorno familiar. Ahora, 21 años después de la muerte del jefe del cartel de Medellín, Juan Pablo Escobar, hijo del capo, rompe su silencio y presenta una versión inédita sobre su padre. Es una apasionante descripción de un personaje que fue capaz de llegar a los peores extremos de crueldad, pero al mismo tiempo de mostrar que el amor por su familia no tenía límites.
