A disbarred lawyer and an ex-arsonist cross paths and find themselves organizing an elaborate real estate scam to bilk a shady rich speculator out of 20 million dollars. The sting is personal for ex-arsonist Stan and for a woman named Vee, who plays an essential role in the caper. Glen, the narrator and former lawyer, finds himself at first just along for the money. Eventually, as bonds deepen among the conspirators, Glen too discovers he has a lot more at stake than simply the loot. This cast of lively eccentrics discovers along the way that getting to the big payoff might just be more scary fun than the monetary prize itself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keith Szarabajka.

Julianne Baker seemingly has it all. Working for a nationally published nature magazine in Manhattan and leading a glamorous life in the Big Apple...or is she? Julianne returns to her hometown of Lilac Glen, Georgia to complete an article on family-based nurseries and floral businesses; something she already knows plenty about. Julianne meets Tucker Case, a handsome investor and real estate manager who is trying to fit in as a farm owner in the town he now calls home. As days get longer, and spring starts to reawaken, will flowers be all that bloom? Join Julianne as she opens her heart to new possibilities while learning to take life a little slower down back roads; bending with the curves instead of against them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Essie Heart. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/109569/bk_acx0_109569_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,0, Technical University of Braunschweig, language: English, abstract: Phatic Communication What does it mean when someone asks ¿How are you?` Usually the speaker expects to hear a response like ¿I am fine, thank you. How are you?`, if he is trying to make ¿chit-chat`. It is assumed that all people are able to seize a distinction between chit-chat and the attempt to conduct a genuine conversation. To make it easier to understand I will start with two conversations which I am going to analyze: (1) Groundhog Day ML: I hope you enjoy the festivities. PC: Oh I¿m sure I¿m going to (pulls face). ML: There¿s there¿s talk of a blizzard. PC: Well, we may catch a break and that blizzard¿s gonna blow right by us. All of this moisture coming up outta the south by midday is probably gonna push on to the east of us and at high altitudes it¿s gonna crystallise and give us what we call snow. (winks) Probably be some accumulation. But here in Punxsutawney our high¿s gonna get up to about 30 today, teens tonight, chance of precipitation about 20 per cent today 20 per cent tomorrow. Did you wanna talk about the weather or were you just making chit-chat? ML: (shrugs and shakes head) Chit-chat. PC: OK. Right. See you later. B¿bye. ML: Oh em eh will you be checking out today Mr. Connors? PC: Chance of departure today one hundred per cent. Obviously MC just wanted to make chit-chat what means that Connor¿s detailed answer was inappropriate. Since he is doing this intentionally he could have reasons for his behaviour (e.g. he does not like chit-chat; he does not like MC). The next example is a conversation between two real estate salesmen: (2) Glengarry Glen Ross RR: How are you GA: Fine (,,) you mean on the board (,) you mean you mean you mean on the board RR: I (,) yes (,) the board GA: I'm fucked on the board Speakers: RR = Ricky Roma; GA = George Aaronow. Contextual assumptions: Roma is very successful in contrast to Aaronow, which is a fact well-known to both since their performances are being recorded on the mentioned board in their office. Only the best two salesmen will keep their jobs while the others are about to get fired. The question which arises is which utterance should be interpreted as phatic and which as non-phatic (if there is anything like that). Referring to example (1) we can say that Mrs. Lancaster¿s attempt to start a verbal exchange could be called phatic since she is trying to make contact with Connor. Connor¿s dis-preferred response, however, can be considered as negatively phatic. As mentioned above, i

Garrett for Hire
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Meet Garrett, P.I. He's a hardboiled human detective who stands out in a crowd of elves, trolls, and other otherworldly denizens in the magical city of TunFaire. Garrett For Hire is 'fantasy noir at its best' (Library Journal), collecting three novels from Glen Cook's classic urban fantasy series. Deadly Quicksilver Lies A rich woman hires Garrett to find her missing daughter…or to act as her hitman. In TunFaire, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference, leaving him no choice but to sift through the sex, intrigue, and murder to uncover the truth behind this case… Petty Pewter Gods With TunFaire real estate at a premium and prayer palaces at a minimum, the big gods on the block hold a contest: find the 'key' to the one temple still available for worship. And when two rival pantheons try to hire Garrett to find it on their behalf, he finds himself facing the wrath of gods… Faded Steel Heat Riots between humans and non-humans have turned TunFaire into a war zone. And when a powerful gang of 'human rightists' drag Garrett into the fray, he defends himself with a circle of friends no one would wish on their worst enemy…
