Lo showdown finale tra il Team e l’uomo che ha osato sfidarli. Intenso, sconvolgente. Chi è preda e chi è predatore?Imprenditore miliardario e fondatore di un Team formato da ex intelligence e forze speciali, David G. Langdon, dai suoi chiamato GD, potrebbe apparire come un uomo che ha sempre avuto tutto e che, nella vita, ha scelto la via più comoda. Non è così. Il suo passato nasconde un errore che non si è mai perdonato, che neanche cinque anni nella Legione Straniera sono riusciti a fargli dimenticare. Un errore per il quale qualcuno vuole ancora presentargli il conto. GD non può permetterlo. Perché l’uomo che ha già cercato di punirlo ha seminato una scia di cadaveri lungo la strada, cercando di colpire quel Team che è diventato la sua famiglia. Questa volta, David è deciso a fermarlo, a qualsiasi costo. Anche se per farlo dovrà mentire a tutti e lanciare un’ultima sfida la cui posta in gioco sarà altissima: la sua vita e quella dell’unica donna che potrebbe amare.

Domesday Book is the most famous English public record, and it is probably the most remarkable statistical document in the history of Europe. It calls itself merely a descriptio and it acquired its name in the following century because its authority seemed comparable to that of the Book by which one day all will be judged (Revelation 20:12). It is not surprising that so many scholars have felt its fascination, and have discussed again and again what it says about economic, social and legal matters. But it also tells us much about the countryside of the eleventh century, and the present volume is the seventh of a series concerned with this geographical information. As the final volume, it seeks to sum up the main features of the Domesday geography of England as a whole, and to reconstruct, as far as the materials allow, the scene which King William's clerks saw as they made their great inquest.

In 1999, Andrew Smith was interviewing Charlie Duke, astronaut and moon walker, for the Sunday Times. During the course of the interview, which took place at Duke's Texan home, the telephone rang and Charlie left the room to answer it. When he returned, some twenty minutes later, he seemed visibly upset. It seemed that he'd just heard that, the previous day, one of his fellow moon walkers, the astronaut Pete Conrad, had died. The more Charlie spoke the more Andrew realised that his grief was something more than the mere fact of losing a friend. 'Now theres only nine of us,' he said. Only nine. Which meant that, one day not long from now, there would be none, and when that day came, no one on earth would have known the giddy thrill of gazing back at us from the surface of the moon. The thought shocked Andrew, and still does. Moondust is his attempt to understand why. The Apollo moon programme has been called the last optimistic act of the 20th Century. Over a strange three year period between 1969 and 1972, twelve men made the longest and most eccentric of all journeys, and all were indelibly marked by it. In Moondust Andrew sets out to interview all the remaining astronauts who walked on the moon, and to find out how their lives were changed for ever by what had happened. 'Where do you go after you've been to the moon?' In addition to this question that would prove hugely troubling to many of the returned astronauts, they also had to deal with the fantasies of faceless millions at their backs, for this was the first truly global media event. The walkers would forever be caught between the gravitational pull of the moon and the earth's collective dreaming.

"Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out--three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list--her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life"--Dust jacket flap.
