"Mes yeux collés à la vitre, je n'y vois bientôt que la nuit, avant de me tourner vers les voyageurs dans la lumière du wagon. Je pense en les regardant aux pages dont j'avais cru faire un livre. J'avais cherché à mieux y voir ce que je pressentais dans quelques regards, dans une expression qui me retenait, ou un simple geste. À chaque fois ils me touchaient, je n'aurais su dire en quoi, c'était si fugitif, cela tenait au peu que me racontaient ces personnes parfois, amies ou inconnues. Mais n'avais-je pas confondu ma vie avec la vie des autres? Ne devrais-je pas me livrer plus franchement plutôt que de me cacher derrière leurs histoires?"

"Persons has shattered the thriller mold." --John Sandford
A deer hunter tracking his wounded prey through the Minnesota woods gets much more than he bargained for when he makes the grisly discovery of a young girl's body. The condition of the corpse is shocking: The girl had been pregnant, but the fetus was removed from her womb and an inverted pentagram drawn on her forehead. After the girl is identified as the daughter of a high-powered Senator, the FBI is called in to find the murderer--and the missing baby.
The case becomes increasingly complex as Bernadette and Tony's personal relationship heats up, and the investigation is hampered by the many lies that lead them on a circuitous--and deadly--route to the truth. Through dogged police work and Bernadette's unique powers of second sight, they close in on the killers on a frigid night in the snowy woods in an effort to save the tiny victim of the toughest crime they've ever solved.
Bernadette Saint Clare is an FBI agent with a difference: she has an unerring but uncanny knack for apprehending killers. Her ability makes her a dangerous maverick in the Federal Bureau of Investigations.Her reward is a backwater posting to Minnesota, but on her very first day a mutilated body is found: the killing is the work of a vigilante killer intent on settling old scores. Soon more bodies appear up and down the Mississippi. All are evildoers who have preyed on the innocent.Forensic investigation is too slow for the dizzying sequence of events that now take place. Bernadette is catapulted from the heart-stopping sequence of slayings into a chase where stalker and prey swap places and where she will be taken to the very brink of sanity.
A string of troubled, young women committing suicide haunts the Twin Cities. But FBI Agent Bernadette St. Clare has a hunch that these women didn't die by their own hand but were killed by a fetishistic serial killer.It's a big leap to take and Bernadette's going to need some serious evidence to back it up. There is the English professor who teaches a course on Suicide in Literature who has got uncomfortably close to one of the victims. And then there is the uncooperative psychiatrist who treated two of the dead girls. Both of them know more than they are saying. Saint Clare is going to have to use unorthodox methods to unlock their secrets. With a cast of characters including a partner who's no longer among the living and a handsome boss who's available, this is the most unique psychological thriller you're bound to read all year.In her second novel featuring Agent Bernadette Saint Clare, Terri Persons delivers a thriller with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the last page
The Oxford History of the Novel in English is a 12-volume series presenting a comprehensive, global, and up-to-date history of English-language prose fiction and written by a large, international team of scholars. The series is concerned with novels as a whole, not just the literary novel, and each volume includes chapters on the processes of production, distribution, and reception, and on popular fiction and the fictional sub-genres, as well as outlining the work of major novelists, movements, traditions, and tendencies. In thirty-four essays, this volume reconstructs the emergence and early cultivation of the novel in the United States. Contributors discuss precursors to the U.S. novel that appeared as colonial histories, autobiographies, diaries, and narratives of Indian captivity, religious conversion, and slavery, while paying attention to the entangled literary relations that gave way to a distinctly American cultural identity. The Puritan past, more than two centuries of Indian wars, the American Revolution, and the exploration of the West all inspired fictions of American struggle and self-discovery. A fragmented national publishing landscape comprised of small, local presses often disseminating odd, experimental forms eventually gave rise to major houses in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia and a consequently robust culture of letters. Dime novels, literary magazines, innovative print technology, and even favorable postal rates contributed to the burgeoning domestic book trade in place by the time of the Missouri Compromise. Contributors weigh novelists of this period alongside their most enduring fictional works to reveal how even the most American of novels sometimes confronted the inhuman practices upon which the promise of the new republic had been made to depend. Similarly, the volume also looks at efforts made to extend American interests into the wider world beyond the nations borders, and it thoroughly documents the emergence of novels projecting those imperial aspirations.
In 1941, Woody Guthrie wrote 26 songs in 30 days--including classics like “Roll On Columbia” and “Pastures of Plenty”--when he was hired by the Bonneville Power Administration to promote the benefits of cheap hydroelectric power, irrigation, and the Grand Coulee Dam. Timed to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this project, KEXP DJ Greg Vandy takes readers inside the unusual partnership between one of America’s great folk artists and the federal government, and shows how the American folk revival was a response to hard times.

This handbook summarizes the data and techniques for hypofractionation and stereotactic radiation in a clinically-accessible way. Hypofractionated radiation therapy, which consists of larger-dose radiation treatments that are given over a shorter time period compared to conventional radiation fraction sizes, is used to treat a variety of cancers, including prostate, breast, lung, and colorectal. Conventional radiation therapy and hypofractionated radiation therapy have different effectiveness rates for cancer treatment and have different impacts on normal tissues in terms of causing toxicity. There is a significant and growing body of literature on the use of different dosing regimens to treat a variety of cancers and radiation oncologists need to keep up with the various dosing schedules, the effect of each regimen on cancer control in different cancers, and how the different schedules affect each organ in terms of toxicity. The book thus provides concise information ranging from commonly-used dose-fractionation schemes for hypofractionated and stereotactic body radiotherapy to simulation and treatment specifications to published safety and efficacy data. Chapters additionally examine the biological rationales for the efficacy of hypofractionated radiation; present clinical studies that demonstrate the efficacy and safety of hypofractionated radiation treatment in a variety of cancers; and describe the advances in technology that have allowed hypofractionated radiation to be safely given. This is an ideal guide for radiation oncology clinicians and trainees.

Comment un journaliste marginal, Erwan Collogan, vivant sur un cotre pilote, aimant la mer, les copains, le rhum et les femmes, se retrouve-t-il embarqué dans une affaire de trafic d'organes entre Quiberon et Belle-Ile en mer ?
Les hommes du temps d'Henri III dénonçaient souvent dans leurs écrits les «practiques» et «menées» du roi et des grands, qualifiant ainsi des agissements ou des comportements dissimulés, faits de ruse, de théâtralité et de duplicité qui corrompaient les relations d'amitié, de fidélité et d'obéissance. Si le temps des troubles de la Ligue fut celui de la violence, il fut aussi celui de la persuasion: les princes tramaient et défaisaient incessamment toutes sortes d'entreprises en «jouant» de leur influence. C'est à «ces grandz qui ne font traffique que de simulation», qui cachent leurs desseins derrière les masques de leur visage, que cette étude s'intéresse. Elle aborde les techniques de l'influence, les usages ambivalents du langage, les comportements équivoques destinés à persuader ou à tromper autrui. Elle s'attache à mettre en situation l'action et les propos du souverain et des gentilshommes dans le cadre concret de quelques affaires politiques analysées dans le détail. Fondée principalement sur des sources épistolaires ou des relations écrites au plus près des événements, elle tente de restituer l'ambiance d'un univers politique de la fin du XVIe siècle traversé par la rumeur qui, souvent manipulée, changeait et influençait sans cesse leurs décisions ou leurs actions. Le pouvoir et la puissance politique reposaient aussi sur la force des apparences.
Ce livre est destiné aux amoureux de la langue espagnole et de la musique caraïbe. La base de l'étude est un corpus de 380 chansons écrites et produites entre 1923 et 1997 à Cuba, en République dominicaine, à Porto Rico et en Colombie. Cet ouvrage propose une "radiographie" du parler local véhiculé par la chanson et la musique à une époque déterminée. La chanson caraïbe laisse apparaître les "perles lexicales" d'un langage populaire héritier de son histoire linguistique et d'une inventivité intarissable.
