WHO KNOWS WHAT EVIL LURKS IN THE HEARTS OF MEN? The marks of death were upon them. A mysterious round burn no bigger than a dime scarred each forehead; upon each throat was a thin, almost invisible white line. The police were baffled, but each of the victims knew that his time was up and his page in the book of death had come due. It was obviously a case for THE SHADOW but the most famous crimefighter of all was missing! Where was the Master of Darkness? Had he finally succumbed to his brilliant adversary, the High Priest of the Cult of Kali? The evil genius who had infiltrated New York's underworld like a disease was now determined to destroy the last obstacle in his mad lunge for total power: THE SHADOW! Originally published in Shadow Magazine, Volume II, Number 6, July 1932.
Here is an ever-expanding cast of ghosts at Clinton Court, Hungry Lucy and her Revolutionary soldier, the Hanged Drummer and Quaker Lady of Harvard, the mystery of Henniker's Ocean-Born Mary House, pirates, skulduggery, and stolen gold.
Kirja on jatkoa kevään 2006 arvostelumenestykselle Marian koodi. Kyseessä on kiitetyn tekijäparin uusi, huikea Anni Isotalo -seikkailu. Kirja on jännittävä, taidokkaasti piirretty ja nykyaikaan sijoittuva tarina, jonka näyttämönä ovat itärajan takainen Karjala sekä takautumina talvi- ja jatkosodan maisemat. Kirja on täynnä kihelmöiviä mysteereitä, salaseuroja ja odottamattomia käänteitä.
Se on sukua ranskalais-belgialaisten koulukuntien mestareille ja edustaa kotimaisen sarjakuvan kermaa. Kirja sopii niin aikuisille kuin perheen nuorimmillekin.
In almost every way that matters, historical Europe was the laboratory in which the world you now live in was conceived and tested. And you'll be living with the consequences for the rest of your life.
These 48 lectures lead you through the doors of that laboratory and guide you through the development of Europe from the late Middle Ages through the eve of World War II. As you follow Professor Bartlett through the dramatic story of European history, you'll learn about the major ideologies and "isms" that bubbled forth from Europe's constantly fermenting cauldron of debate and conflict, including absolutism, scientism, rationalism, capitalism, nationalism, liberalism, and totalitarianism.
You'll investigate the forces that intermingled to create the Industrial Revolution and the accompanying economic and social upheavals that would, in turn, create so many more. You'll also make sense of the European ideologies of government, including the rule of law, the concept of "the consent of the governed," taxation, an independent judiciary, and other concepts. You'll explore the new roles for religion in European life, from the end of the traditional union of altar and throne to great upheavals such as the Protestant Reformation and the Great Schism. And you'll witness the evolution of the European class system, which influenced the social forces that swirled around it just as much as it was influenced by them. Rather than offering a laundry list of dates, events, and famous individuals, Professor Bartlett leaves you instead with an understanding of historical and social causality. More important: He offers you the chance to experience Europe's development from a European perspective.
