• Jonah Wish is in an elite team of teenage thieves lead by master criminal Nathaniel Coldhardt. Coldhardt plans every mission with absolute precision. So when Jonah and the rest of the team break into a highly secure compound to steal a precious sword, they can't quite beleive it when they discover that someone has beaten them to it. Is Coldhardt losing his touch?
    But there's worse to come. A member of the team is kidnapped - from their secret base, no less. Who has taken her and why? And is her abduction linked to the missing sword? There have been rumours in the underworld about a shadowy organisation called the Sixth Sun, who have shown interest in the sword, and now it's time for Jonah to do what he's best at: put the pieces together and decode the mystery. Literally.
    In a mission which takes him from Guatemala to the jungles of Mexico, Jonah must rely on his unusual talent for codebreaking to try and decipher the connection before it's too late.

  • Arrested and put in a young offender's institute for using his precocious code-solving skills to steal money, things are looking bleak for Jonah Wish.
    Then, in the dead of night, a gang of four teenagers break him out. They work for Nathaniel Coldhardt, debonair master criminal and leader of a team of highly trained teen thieves. Kids with amazing skills but no one who will miss them.
    Jonah, a genius at cryptology, is their newest recruit. His talents are perfect for the next assignment Coldhardt has in mind - his most daring yet.
    But before Jonah can turn his thoughts to deciphering the complex Egyption symbols and the treasures - or secrets - they hide, he has to decide if this is what he wants for himself. Coldhardt may have chosen him, but will he choose Coldhardt? And does he have any choice . . .

  • A wildly evocative chronicle of the decade that changed hockey forever.
    "Lady Byng died in Boston" read a sign in the Garden arena in 1970, a cheery dismissal of the NHL trophy awarded the game's most gentlemanly player. A new age of hockey was dawning. For 30 years, hockey was an orderly and (relatively) well-behaved sport. There was one Commissioner, six teams and five colours--red, white, black, blue and yellow. Oh, and one nationality. Until 1967, every player, coach, referee and GM in the NHL had been a Canadian. And then came NHL expansion, the founding of the WHA, and garish new uniforms. The Seventies had arrived: the era that gave us not only disco, polyester suits, lava lamps and mullets but also the movie Slap Shot and the arrest of ten NHL players for on-ice mayhem. But it also gave us hockey's greatest encounter (the 1972 Canada-Russia Summit), its most splendid team, the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens, and the most aesthetically satisfying game--the three-all tie on New Year's Eve, 1975, between the Canadiens and the Soviet Red Army.
    Modern hockey was born in the sport's wild, sensational, sometimes ugly Seventies growth spurt. The forces at play in the decade's battle for hockey supremacy--dazzling speed vs. brute force--are now, for better or worse, part of hockey's DNA. This book is a welcome reappraisal of the ten years that changed how the sport was played and experienced. Informed by first-hand interviews with players and game officials, and sprinkled with sidebars on the art and artifacts that defined Seventies hockey, the book brings dramatically alive hockey's most eventful, exciting decade.

  • En France, les découvertes révolutionnaires de Mirko Beljanski dans le domaine médical ont déclenché une véritable « fatwa » scientifique à son encontre. Calomnié, diabolisé, harcelé, rejeté par ses pairs, privé de ses droits fondamentaux, le chercheur en biologie moléculaire s'est éteint àl'âge de 75 ans, épuisé et meurtri. La Cour Européenne des droits de l'Homme a condamné unanimement la procédure dont il fut la victime, compte tenu de son âge et de l'atteinte portée à sa réputation de scientifique et au sérieux de ses recherches... D'où l'idée de porter à la connaissance du grand public un ouvrage sur ses travaux, et sur les nouveaux traitements qu'il a proposés, tels qu'ils sont appliqués officiellement de l'autre côté de l'atlantique. Beljanski vu des États-Unis ? Un novateur considéré comme l'un des premiers biologistes « verts », pionnier de la médecine environnementale moderne ! Et ce, après une vérification rigoureuse, dans les structures hospitalières les plus prestigieuses, des molécules naturelles mises au point par le chercheur, et notamment, efficaces contre le cancer. Deux pays, deux mentalités, deux analyses... Une bonne raison de dévorer ce livre, qui, en dépit de nombreuses références scientifiques, se lit d'une traite comme un roman.

  • Hockey's most famous voice, now in his own words.
    If you are a hockey fan, you know Bob Cole's legendary voice.
    He has done the play-by-play for some of hockey's best-remembered games, including the Summit Series, Canada's gold-medal game in Salt Lake City, and twenty years of Stanley Cup finals. The infectious excitement in his voice, his boyish love of the game, and his uncanny ability to anticipate the play have earned him the affection of generations of fans, induction into the Hall of Fame, and the unofficial title of best hockey broadcaster ever.
    Now, for the first time, readers will see Cole at the centre of the story rather than watching it from the broadcast booth. We meet the young man growing up in Newfoundland in the years before it joins Canada. We see him talk his way into Foster Hewitt's office and into his first job. And of course we see some of the most cherished players in the game backstage: on the plane back from Russia in 1972, rubbing elbows with Bobby Orr; in the hallway on the old Montreal Forum, running into Jean Beliveau; meeting young players like Steve Stamkos, who grew up listening to him on Hockey Night in Canada.
    Written with the expert help of massively bestselling author and respected broadcaster Stephen Brunt, these stories come to life with the charm and detail of a conversation with Cole. They sound like Cole.
    No one has been closer to the game over the years than Cole, and no one is more closely associated with all we love about the game than the man whose eyes we've seen it though. Now we will see so much more through those same eyes and in that unforgettable voice.
