The House on the Strand

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier Book Summary:

In this haunting tale, Daphne du Maurier takes a fresh approach to time travel. A secret experimental concoction, once imbibed, allows you to return to the fourteenth century. There is only one catch: if you happen to touch anyone while traveling in the past you will be thrust instantaneously to the present. Magnus Lane, a University of London chemical researcher, asks his friend Richard Young and Young's family to stay at Kilmarth, an ancient house set in the wilds near the Cornish coast. Here, Richard drinks a potion created by Magnus and finds himself at the same spot where he was moments earlier--though it is now the fourteenth century. The effects of the drink wear off after several hours, but it is wildly addictive, and Richard cannot resist traveling back and forth in time. Gradually growing more involved in the lives of the early Cornish manor lords and their ladies, he finds the presence of his wife and stepsons a hindrance to his new-found experience. Richard eventually finds emotional refuge with a beautiful woman of the past trapped in a loveless marriage, but when he attempts to intervene on her behalf the results are brutally terrifying for the present. Echoing the great fantastic stories of H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, The House on the Strand is a masterful yarn of history, romance, horror, and suspense that will grip the reader until the last surprising twist.

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Blood of Paradise by David Corbett Book Summary:

In El Salvador, a young American faces his troubled past—and a dangerous present Jude McManus has landed on his feet. Following time in the army, he scored work as an “executive protection specialist” in El Salvador, where he safeguards a hydrologist for good money and gets to surf during his downtime. But this slice of paradise comes with post-civil-war dangers, and distance won’t erase his cruel memories of Chicago. Ten years earlier, his cop father was outed as part of the Laugh Masters, a group of police officers investigated for robbing and brutally beating drug dealers. In the wake of the scandal, the family fell apart, and his father died under suspicious circumstances. When McManus gets a call from Bill Malvasio—one of his dad’s closest friends and an escaped member of the Laugh Masters, now living in El Salvador—the past comes knocking in a big way. Malvasio opens up about what really happened, and seeks help for another member of McManus’s father’s old crew. Is the disgraced ex-cop being straight with McManus? Hidden corruption abounds, and it will take all of McManus’s wits to come away with the truth—and his life—intact.

David Rivers is a second-generation oilman. From Houston, he runs the multinational oil company built by his father, former Apollo astronaut Michael Rivers, one of the last men alive to walk on the moon. Michael now spends his days confined to an assisted-living facility, his mind succumbing to the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. Somewhere in Michael's crumbling memory is a devastating secret he has revealed to no one in over forty years, not even to his sole surviving child.

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Conspiracy Of Violence by Susanna Gregory Book Summary:

Susanna Gregory, author of the Matthew Bartholomew series of medieval mysteries, has created another compelling fictional detective set in Restoration London. -------------------------------------------- The first adventure in the Thomas Chaloner series. The dour days of Cromwell are over. Charles II is well established at White Hall Palace, his mistress at hand in rooms over the Holbein bridge, the heads of some of the regicides on public display. London seethes with new energy, freed from the strictures of the Protectorate, but many of its inhabitants have lost their livelihoods. One is Thomas Chaloner, a reluctant spy for the feared Secretary of State, John Thurloe, and now returned from Holland in desperate need of employment. His erstwhile boss, knowing he has many enemies at court, recommends Thomas to Lord Clarendon, but in return demands that Thomas keep him informed of any plot against him. But what Thomas discovers is that Thurloe had sent another ex-employee to White Hall and he is dead, supposedly murdered by footpads near the Thames. Chaloner volunteers to investigate his killing: instead he is dispatched to the Tower to unearth the gold buried by the last Governor. He discovers not treasure, but evidence that greed and self-interest are uppermost in men's minds whoever is in power, and that his life has no value to either side.

The Blood of Avalon - The Secret History of the Grail Dynasty from King Arthur to Prince William

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Blood of Avalon - The Secret History of the Grail Dynasty from King Arthur to Prince William by Adrian Gilbert Book Summary:

In this extraordinary book, Adrian Gilbert reveals the location of not just the true 'Avalon' or 'Glastonbury' but of many other sites crucial to the legend of the Holy Grail and King Arthur. He shows how the core teachings of Christianity were kept secret by a dynasty of Welsh kings and saints and later (after the Norman invasions) by their surviving descendants. For centuries this remnant of the Brittano-Welsh nobility, still living in 'Avalon', kept alive a hope: they prayed that one day a new Arthur, one with the holy blood of the family of Mary flowing in his veins, would sit once more on the throne of Britain. Extraordinary as it may seem, this hope may soon be realised - for through the late Diana, Princess of Wales, our own Prince William, whose middle name is indeed Arthur, is so descended.

Blood on the Wave

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Blood on the Wave by John Sadler Book Summary:

Scotland's long coastline runs from the waters of Galloway and the Solway, through the Irish Sea to the long sea lochs and myriad islands of the Celtic west, around grim Cape Wrath, the coast of Caithness, Pentland Firth and the Orkneys, eastward down to the Moray Firth, the eastern seaboard, to the Forth and the sentinel of the Bass Rock. It is an ancient strand redolent with history. Sea battles have been fought in its lee from the time of Agricola to the Atlantic convoys. In Blood on the Wave, John Sadler embarks on a pilgrimage around Scotland's rugged and stunning coastline, to explore the fascinating history that has occurred in its waters. Beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs and line drawings, the narrative also describes developments in ship building technique and design, developments in naval gunnery with a look at coastal defences. From the long oared Norse galleys that swept down through the isles and the sea lochs to Somerled's birlinns and nyvaigs contesting with those of Godred of Man in a moonlit clash of spears, many of the fiercest battles in Scottish history have been fought at sea. Examining an array of skirmishes from the Wars of Independence to the Napoleonic Wars, the scuttling of the Imperial German Navy at Scapa Flow to the lurking threat of Second World War U-boats and nuclear submarines hunting for Soviet spy ships, John Sadler has created a brilliant, insightful and unique portrait of the Scottish war at sea.

Expelled from schools all over the country, the manipulative young Luke is accustomed to controlling the people in his life. But, in Lana, he may have met his match. Or has Lana met hers? When Lana’s closest friend, Beck, mysteriously disappears, Lana resumes her lying ways—to friends, to the police, to herself.

Love, Honour and Royal Blood - Book

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Love, Honour and Royal Blood - Book by Carol Sargeant Book Summary:

'The author will have a riot on her hands when people reach the last page of this book - readers will be so anxious for the second book in the trilogy to be published. Gloria McAuley, the fi rst person ever to read this book If Chaucer was your brother-in-law; William Wycliffe your good friend; and the most powerful man in England - John of Gaunt, the great Duke of Lancaster - was your lover . . . what would your life be like? Katharine de Roet is one of the most enigmatic women in history; and yet she sat at the centre of some of the greatest changes the world has known. Intrigue, betrayal, and intimate connections with some of the greatest minds of not just her own times, but of all recorded history, was the daily stuff of her life. But for all that, the essence of Katharine's life was a love story, and the story of John of Gaunt and Katharine Swynford is truly one of the great love stories of history. At the age of seventeen Carol Sargeant read Anya Seton's lovely novel 'Katherine' and was so moved by it that she started a 30 year research project to answer a single question. The question was 'what really happened'; what is John of Gaunt and Katharine Swynford's story? If Katharine had not said yes to love, the Tudor dynasty would not have existed, George Washington would not have been there to fi ght for American independence, and Alfred Lord Tennyson would not have written his famous poetry. And that is just the story of some of her descendants. More important is the story of the woman and the world she knew."

The Great Mormon Cricket Fly-fishing Festival and Other Western Stories

Blood On The Strand [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Great Mormon Cricket Fly-fishing Festival and Other Western Stories by Tom Bishop Book Summary:

Tom Bishop's collection of stories is divided into slices of time and takes place in the northern Rocky Mountains. The earliest story is set during a brutal winter in which the men of a Lakota clan follow a vision of an elk herd to find meat to save their starving family. The next group of tales take place one hundred years later, in the early twentieth century. A country storekeeper uses defanged rattlesnakes to guard his business; dealings with a bootlegger cost a man his friends, his home, and his job; and deer hunters at the height of the Great Depression go out in search of "Hoover Steaks." At the end of World War II, an illegal quail hunt costs the host rancher over a thousand dollars when a hunter is killed and his widow demands restitution. In "The Fragile Commandment" an abusive farmer is killed by his stepdaughter with a pitchfork, and "Someone's Dog" is the story of a trout fisherman who finds a dog by his favorite stream. The title story, "The Great Mormon Cricket Fly-Fishing Festival" involves trout fisherman who want to bring in enough money through their festival to pay for a weekend fishing party. Regardless of the time period, the people, situations, dilemmas, and problems found in these stories replicate those of the twenty-first century.
