Filled with regret over his rocky past, Reece Morgan has no desire to go home after ten years away. But when Billie Bradshaw becomes the target of killers, he returns to defend her with a vengeance born of salvation. He charges to the rescue, only to realize she´s the bait to tempt him into the open. Billie has a choice to make. She can risk violent death, or allow the man she considers her worst nightmare - the man she´s already loved and lost, the man who fell off the grid a long time ago, taking her heart along for the ride - to keep her safe. What could be worse? Maybe the fact he´s unknowingly brought death to her door. As Billie and Reece follow the twisted trail of a psychotic mind, their reignited passion takes a front row seat in their struggle to stay alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Henry McNulty.

Eine starke Frau In ihrer ungewöhnlich ehrlichen Autobiografie schreibt Chrissie Hynde über ihre kleinstädtische Jugend in den Fünfzigerjahren, ihr musikalisches Coming-of-age in den Sechzigerjahren, das Kent-State-University-Massaker, dessen Zeuge sie wurde, die Siebzigerjahre-Punk-Ära in London, die mit der Gründung ihrer legendären Band The Pretenders endete. Mit mehreren Nummer-eins-Alben und -Singles stiegen die Pretenders zu einer der erfolgreichsten Bands der Achtzigerjahre auf. Die Band musste aber auch schwere Niederschläge einstecken, zwei Mitglieder starben an ihrer Drogensucht.
Joni Mitchell has only visited the U.S. Top 40 singles chart four times in her long recording career - and the Top 20 just once. So much for ´´stoking the starmaker machinery behind the popular song´´, as she sang in her 1974 song ´Free Man in Paris´. What Joni has done, on the other hand, is record a handful of masterful albums - Blue, Court And Spark, The Hissing Of Summer Lawns for starters - that prove she is right up there with the big boys: with Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson and Stevie Wonder. Few women can hold a candle to her oeuvre: maybe Aretha Franklin, maybe Kate Bush, Bjork, Joanna Newsom. Airs and graces she may have, but airs and graces backed up by ´Woodstock´, ´The Arrangement´, ´A Case Of You´, ´Help Me´, ´Dog Eat Dog´ and ´The Magdalene Laundries´ are forgivable. Some of Mitchell´s songs are great art. Almost all are emotionally complex and musically gripping. Reckless Daughter collects some of the most incisive commentary on Joni´s music - and some of the most candid conversations she has had with journalists through her long career. From a review of her first performance at L.A.´s legendary Troubadour in 1968 to a career-sweeping 1998 interview by MOJO´s Dave DiMartino, this anthology of almost 60 articles charts every stage of Joni´s extraordinary journey as a singer, songwriter and artist.
On the last day of middle school, five kids who couldn´t be more different commit separate pranks, each sure they won´t be caught and they can´t get in trouble. They´re wrong. As punishment, they each have to volunteer one beautiful summer day-the last one before school-at Northbrook Retirement and Assisted Living Home, where they´ll push creamed carrots into toothless mouths, perform the world´s most pathetic skit in front of residents who won´t remember it anyway, hold gnarled hands of peach fuzzed old ladies who relentlessly push hard candies, and somehow forge a bond with each other that has nothing to do with what they´ve done and everything to do with who they´re becoming. All the action takes place in the course of this one day, with each chapter one hour of that day, as the five kids reveal what they´ve done, why they did it, and what they´re going to do now.
