En la madrugada del día de Pentecostés de 1702 un ejército pirata, liderado por el capitán Bram, llevó a cabo el mayor robo de la Historia. Dos docenas de barcos de la corona española, con sus bodegas atestadas del oro y la plata de las Américas, fueron asaltados por los piratas cuando navegaban de regreso a casa. Sin embargo, el inmenso tesoro jamás fue encontrado. Muchos años después, en la actualidad, Bruno Labastide, el aventurero canalla y encantador que conocimos en una anterior entrega –La Soledad–, cree saber dónde se encuentra el tesoro, y se embarca junto a tres amigos en un viaje trepidante en busca del oro. Una aventura que les lleva desde Sevilla a Londres, de la haitiana Isla de la Tortuga a Cartagena de Indias, pasando por Escocia, Madagascar hasta recalar en Hong Kong... Pero las cosas no son siempre como parecen y cuando se mezclan el amor, el deseo, la pasión, los celos y un ciego que juega al ajedrez, todo puede cambiar. Si añadimos a un loco encerrado en un manicomio que escribe los cuentos más hermosos y desgarradores del mundo, la combinación puede ser letal.La república de los ladrones es una fascinante novela de aventuras, cargada a su vez de sentido del humor, reflexión y melancolía. Un artefacto literario que atrapará al lector desde la primera página, llevándole de la mano, sin darle tregua, hasta el punto y final.;D:2017-11-13;;;;20 %;WORLD;;;Editorial Almuzara;www.editorialalmuzara.com;Sí;No;;Sí;Sí;No;No;0 %;6,49;WORLD;7,49;WORLD ISBN:9788417229153;;Historia de los maquis;;Digital;;David Baird [Autor];;spa;;;«Tan excitante como una novela de intriga, pero mucho más conmovedor, este libro merece ser leído por todo aquel interesado en la historia contemporánea de España.» Paul Preston «Este es el resultado de muchos años de investigación y de numerosas entrevistas, a veces muy difíciles de conseguir. La narrativa de David Baird adquiere tintes del mejor Graham Greene.» Prólogo de Ian Gibson Aunque, oficialmente, la Guerra Civil se acabó en 1939, la resistencia armada contra Franco no había terminado. En los años cuarenta, varios grupos de guerrilleros salieron de sus escondites en las sierras para hostigar a la Dictadura. Para las autoridades eran «bandoleros», «forajidos», «ladrones» y «huidos». No eran palabras escogidas de manera fortuita. El Régimen no quería dignificar a los rebeldes admitiendo que tenían ideología o propósitos políticos. También se llamaban aquellos rebeldes «maquis», un nombre importado de Francia por los ex combatientes republicanos que participaron en la resistencia contra el Nazismo. En 1942, después de la victoria aliada sobre Rommel en El Alamein y de la invasión del Marruecos francés y de Argelia, agentes secretos estadounidenses de la oss empezaron a entrenar en las tácticas guerrilleras a grupos de exiliados y de presos españoles liberados de los campos de concentración de Vichy en el Norte de África, españoles dispuestos a volver a su país y a mantener allí la resistencia en espera de una hipotética intervención aliada. Pero Santiago Carrillo cortó dicha «conexión americana» y se aseguró de que únicamente el Partido Comunista dirigiera la organización de la guerrilla española. Por casualidad el pueblo de Frigiliana fue uno más de los enclaves que se encontraron en la primera línea de una guerra sin cuartel. Con poco más de 2 000 habitantes, 21 hombres huyeron a la sierra y se incorporaron a la «Agrupación de Roberto», nombre de guerra del enigmático jefe de la guerrilla antifranquista, cuya valentía y disciplina admiraban sus perseguidores de la Guardia Civil. Este libro cuenta la historia de esos legendarios hombres, que acosados por el Régimen y finalmente abandonados a su suerte por el partido Comunista, pobres y aislados, jugaron, a su modo, un papel importante en la historia de España."

From the critically acclaimed author of The 25th Hour and When the Nines Roll Over and co-creator of the HBO series Game of Thrones, a captivating novel about war, courage, survival — and a remarkable friendship that ripples across a lifetime. During the Nazis’ brutal siege of Leningrad, Lev Beniov is arrested for looting and thrown into the same cell as a handsome deserter named Kolya. Instead of being executed, Lev and Kolya are given a shot at saving their own lives by complying with an outrageous directive: secure a dozen eggs for a powerful Soviet colonel to use in his daughter’s wedding cake. In a city cut off from all supplies and suffering unbelievable deprivation, Lev and Kolya embark on a hunt through the dire lawlessness of Leningrad and behind enemy lines to find the impossible. By turns insightful and funny, thrilling and terrifying, the New York Times bestseller City of Thieves is a gripping, cinematic World War II adventure and an intimate coming-of-age story with an utterly contemporary feel for how boys become men.

In When the Nines Roll Over, David Benioff (The 25th Hour, City of Thieves) uses humor and rich characterizations to explore the sometimes thrilling, sometimes pathetic emotional lives of a diverse set of characters. Over the course of eight stories, we are introduced to a host of young people on the cusp of discovery and loss. As he evokes the various states of agony and pleasure—humiliation, rebellion, camaraderie, and desire—Benioff displays a profound understanding of the transformative power of a single moment and how sadness can be illuminated by a humorous flip side. When the Nines Roll Over confirms the promise of a gifted writer emerging as a storytelling force.

The Five Thieves of Happiness “A thought-provoking guide to sustained happiness.” —Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness From bestselling author John Izzo comes this practical and inspirational guide. He shows that happiness is our natural state and explores five “thieves” that rob us of that innate sense of contentment. A few years ago, Izzo was puzzled that he didn't feel happier. He was a successful consultant, a much-in-demand speaker, and a bestselling author. Sure, he'd had some setbacks and disappointments, but he knew enough to know he had it pretty good. And, as he shows in this book, both ancient wisdom and modern neuroscience say that we're naturally happy—it's our default setting. So why didn't it seem to be his? Izzo went on a journey—a kind of pilgrimage—to try to understand what was going on. Reflecting as he walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain and spent time in the deserts of Morocco and in the Peruvian Andes, he began to identify five mental thought patterns that take our happiness from us. He calls them the five thieves of happiness: the thief of control, the thief of conceit, the thief of coveting, the thief of consumption, and the thief of comfort. Drawing on recent psychological research, the world's spiritual traditions, and personal stories from his journey, Izzo describes the disguises these thieves wear, the tools they use to break into our hearts, and what we can do to lock them out once and for all. He shows how the same five thieves that rob us of our personal happiness are destroying society as well. This book will help us all discover, develop, and defend the happiness that is naturally ours as human beings while finding ways to create a world we all want to live in.

The second installment in Pearl S. Buck’s acclaimed Good Earth trilogy: the powerful story of three brothers whose greed will bring their family to the brink of ruin Sons begins where The Good Earth ended: Revolution is sweeping through China. Wang Lung is on his deathbed in the house of his fathers, and his three sons stand ready to inherit his hard-won estate. One son has taken the family’s wealth for granted and become a landlord; another is a thriving merchant and moneylender; the youngest, an ambitious general, is destined to be a leader in the country. Through all his life’s changes, Wang did not anticipate that each son would hunger to sell his beloved land for maximum profit. At once a tribute to early Chinese fiction, a saga of family dissension, and a depiction of the clashes between old and new, Sons is a vivid and compelling masterwork of fiction. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

"I love every aspect of this amazing book—a genderfluid hero, a deadly contest, and vicious courtly intrigue. Get! Read! Now!" —Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author I Needed to Win. They Needed to Die. Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class—and the nobles who destroyed their home. When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand—the Queen's personal assassins, named after the rings she wears—Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive. More Praise for Mask of Shadows: A Bustle Most Anticipated YA of 2017! "Compelling and relatable characters, a fascinating world with dangerous magic, and a dash of political intrigue: Mask of Shadows completely delivered. Fantasy fans will love this book."—Jodi Meadows, New York Times bestselling coauthor of My Lady Jane "An intriguing world and a fantastically compelling main character make for a can't-miss debut. Miller's Mask of Shadows will make you glad you're not an assassin—and even gladder Sal is."—Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken and Now I Rise

Winner of the 2015 Prix Goncourt, an astounding novel that bridges Europe and the Islamic world On the shortlist for the 2017 Man Booker International Prize As night falls over Vienna, Franz Ritter, an insomniac musicologist, takes to his sickbed with an unspecified illness and spends a restless night drifting between dreams and memories, revisiting the important chapters of his life: his ongoing fascination with the Middle East and his numerous travels to Istanbul, Aleppo, Damascus, and Tehran, as well as the various writers, artists, musicians, academics, orientalists, and explorers who populate this vast dreamscape. At the center of these memories is his elusive, unrequited love, Sarah, a fiercely intelligent French scholar caught in the intricate tension between Europe and the Middle East. With exhilarating prose and sweeping erudition, Mathias Énard pulls astonishing elements from disparate sources—nineteenth-century composers and esoteric orientalists, Balzac and Agatha Christie—and binds them together in a most magical way.
