Someone's trying to kill PI Jimmy “Soldier” Riley. And he's inclined to let them. But before sleeping the big sleep and journeying to the undiscovered country to discover what dreams may come, there’s blood work to be done. Picking up right at the thrilling conclusion of The Big Goodbye, The Big Beyond finds Soldier near death with one hell of a big score to settle and more than a few injustices to square along the way - all while searching wartime Panama City for a dangerous serial killer who combines art and murder. Stylish, retro, and highly entertaining, Michael Lister's The Big Beyond continues the romantic, mysterious, adventures of one of the most interesting and compelling classic hard-boiled detectives to come along in a very, very long time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Allen Walker. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012386/bk_acx0_012386_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In general, the history of virtue theory is well-documented (Sherman, 1997; O’Neill, 1996). Its relationship to medicine is also recorded in our work and in that of others (Pellegrino and Thomasma, 1993b; 1996; Drane, 1994; Ellos, 1990). General publications stress the importance of training the young in virtuous practices. Still, the popularity of education in virtue is widely viewed as part of a conservative backlash to modern liberal society. Given the authorship of some of these works by professional conservatives like William Bennett (1993; 1995), this concern is authentic. One might correspondingly fear that greater adoption of virtue theory in medicine will be accompanied by a corresponding backward-looking social agenda. Worse yet, does reaffirmation of virtue theory lacquer over the many challenges of the postmodern world view as if these were not serious concerns? After all, recreating the past is the “retro” temptation of our times. Searching for greater certitude than we can now obtain preoccupies most thinkers today. One wishes for the old clarity and certitudes (Engelhardt, 1991). On the other hand, the same thinkers who yearn for the past, like Engelhardt sometimes seems to do, might stress the unyielding gulf between past and present that creates the postmodern reaction to all systems of Enlightenment thought (1996).

'...and we will be like two stars circling about each other, drawn together - a double star...' It's 1961 and life turns upside-down when 15-year-old Sandra and her family move to the city from their small country town. She's upset to leave behind her beloved piano teacher, her almost-boyfriend Nick Morgan, and especially best friend Emilia. Heart-searching letters fly between the two girls as Sandra's ambition to be a concert pianist takes a new direction and she is overwhelmed by an unexpected and dangerous friendship. '...a retro teenage romance with adulthood more than a shadowland on the fringes. Absorbing as a sequel to The Midnight Pianist, excellent as a book on its own.' - David Brooks Candida Baker on The Midnight Pianist - 'A delightful coming-of-age story about first love, teenage dreams and the courage to face reality... all told through a filter of beautiful music.'

Guitar Tone: Pursuing the Ultimate Guitar Sound
32,99 € *

'Great tone' is a combination of many things--electronic, acoustic, musical, physical, emotional, and cerebral. Each player assembles and manipulates those components into a special blend, creating his own unique sonic stew. So how do we get great tone? The answer for most of us is a lifetime of pursuit that is at once equal parts joyous and frustrating, but always rewarding. A big part of succeeding in that pursuit is having an understanding of what goes into making great tone. That’s where this book comes in. GUITAR TONE: PURSUING THE ULTIMATE GUITAR SOUND is the ultimate resource for guitarists searching for not just the 'best' tone, but also their own individual sound. This book explores all the gear and examines the approaches famous players take to achieve their distinctive tones. You’ll look at vintage and new, boutique and mainstream, modern and retro. Along the way, Guitar Tone attempts to sort out the facts versus the myths versus the opinions and explores how each component contributes to the overall tone of our guitars and other gear. The search for tone may not come to a definitive conclusion for most of us, but that doesn’t make the journey any less worth taking. It’s not easy to achieve great tone, but the reward--the joy of wallowing in the luscious sound of strings resonating in concert with your musical desires--is a reward greater than any other. Better tone awaits!
