7 The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye - David Lagercrantz & George Goulding
Auteur : David Lagercrantz & George Goulding
Genre : Policier et suspense
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO LIVES ON.

Lisbeth Salander is an unstoppable force:

Sentenced to two months in Flodberga women's prison for saving a young boy's life by any means necessary, Salander refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind.

Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains. For him, it looks to be an important expose for Millennium. For her, it could unlock the facts of her childhood.

Even from a corrupt prison system run largely by the inmates, Salander will stand up for what she believes in, whatever the cost. And she will seek the truth that is somehow connected with her childhood memory, of a woman with a blazing birthmark on her neck - that looked as if it had been burned by a dragon's fire . . . <

Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by,
That here, obedient to their laws, we lie.

Nearly 2,500 years ago, in 480BC, at a bleak pass in a far-flung corner of eastern Greece, three hundred Spartan warriors faced the army of Xerxes of Persia, a massive force rumoured to be over a million strong.

Their orders were simple: to delay the enemy for as long as possible while the main Greek armies mobilized.

For six days the Spartans held the invaders at bay. In the final hours - their shields broken, swords and spears shattered - they fought with their bare hands before being overwhelmed.

It was battle that would become synonymous with extraordinary courage, heroism and self-sacrifice: it was Thermopylae.

If you loved Wallander, meet Wisting - your next Scandi crime obsession . . .

15 years ago, Simon Meier walked out of his house and was never seen again.

Because one day ago, politician Bernard Clausen died. And in his cabin on the Norwegian coast, police make a shocking discovery.

Boxes of bank notes, worth millions of dollars. Collecting dust.

Chief Inspector William Wisting thinks it could link to Meier's disappearance.

But solving both cases will mean working with an old adversary, and delving into a dark underworld - which leads closer to home than he could have imagined . . .

46 Analysis of Navy Hornet Squadron Mishap Costs With Regard to Previously Flown Flight Hours: Statistical Correlation Demonstrated for F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornets at the Macro Level - Progressive Management
Auteur : Progressive Management
Genre : Militaire
This report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. Naval aviation is inherently dangerous. Recently, budgetary pressures have reduced flight hours across naval aviation. The author's experience as a naval aviator has allowed him to see that mishaps occur more frequently in a squadron when flight hours are reduced. This thesis correlates F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet squadron previously flown flight hours with mishap costs. It uses a macro level approach by evaluating how a squadron's previously flown flight hours affect mishap cost and the likelihood of a mishap. This thesis does not attempt to assign mishap causality; this thesis describes only the relationship between mishap cost and previously flown flight hours.
Analyzing 15 years' worth of squadron monthly flight hours and mishaps shows that mishap cost is statistically correlat

47 The Hornet's Nest - Jimmy Carter
Auteur : Jimmy Carter
Genre : Histoire
The first work of fiction by a President of the United States—a sweeping novel of the American South and the War of Independence.

In his ambitious and deeply rewarding novel, Jimmy Carter brings to life the Revolutionary War as it was fought in the Deep South; it is a saga that will change the way we think about the conflict. He reminds us that much of the fight for independence took place in that region and that it was a struggle of both great and small battles and of terrible brutality, with neighbor turned against neighbor, the Indians’ support sought by both sides, and no quarter asked or given. The Hornet’s Nest follows a cast of characters and their loved ones on both sides of this violent conflict—including some who are based on the author’s ancestors.

At the heart of the story is Ethan Pratt, who in 1766 moves with his wife, Epsey, from Phil

Her worst fears are confirmed when the reporter, Brazil, presses the button to activate the boot-release rather than the siren on their first outing. He's not the only blight on her life right now: her cat's angsty, her hormones are misbehaving, her opposite number in the uniformed division is behaving like a jackass, the radio despatcher is determined to trip her up, the D.A. is in the middle of a hot batt
