While vacationing in Maine, Professor Peter Shandy confronts a poisonous potpie. Massachusetts horticulturalist Peter Shandy is famous for his rutabagas, but he comes to Maine with a loftier plant in mind. Specifically, he wants to size up the world-renowned lupines of Frances Rondel, a nonagenarian whose legendary flowers are even more beautiful in life than they are in myth. Shandy is bitterly jealous, but finds a major distraction in the dining room of the country inn where he's staying. He may grow wretched lupines, but no gardener can solve a murder like Peter Shandy. The corpse belongs to the late Jasper Flodge, a local loudmouth with a toupee and a sizeable gut. Shoveling down the last bites of a chicken potpie, Flodge clutches his chest and falls dead. Suddenly with more to do than stopping to smell the lupines, Shandy must ask himself: Which Maine cook has the bad taste to flavor chicken with cyanide? Review Quotes. 'Sly, subtle . . . offers a blooming good time.' - Baltimore Sun. 'MacLeod's lively mystery lampoon . . . will surely please her myriad fans.' - Publishers Weekly. 'One of the most gifted mystery authors writing today.' - Sojourner Magazine. Biographical note. Charlotte MacLeod (1922-2005) was an internationally bestselling author of cozy mysteries. Born in Canada, she moved to Boston as a child, and lived in New England most of her life. After graduating from college, she made a career in advertising, writing copy for the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company before moving on to Boston firm N. H. Miller & Co., where she rose to the rank of vice president. In her spare time, MacLeod wrote short stories, and in 1964 published her first novel, a children's book called Mystery of the White Knight. In Rest You Merry (1978), MacLeod introduced Professor Peter Shandy, a horticulturist and amateur sleuth whose adventures she would chronicle for two decades. The Family Vault (1979) marked the first appearance of her other best-known characters: the husband and wife sleuthing team Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn, whom she followed until her last novel, The Balloon Man, in 1998.

These twenty wry and witty short stories examine change at every stage of life, in a natural progression from birth to death. Mostly lighthearted, but often moving too, this collection is written with an admirable economy of style. They're short enough to class as flash fiction, sudden fiction, microfiction, ultra short fiction - call them what you will, Ranging from a spartan 100 words to the relative luxury of 1,000, they combine sharp observation of contemporary English life with gentle humour, profound affection for the social quirks of the author's native country, and the odd dark rumbling undertone. Plenty of surprises emerge along the way, from twists of magical realism to whimsical wish-fulfillment. Here's what some pre-publication readers have had to say about Debbie Young's first collection of flash fiction: 'I loved these stories. Sly, witty, surprising, and the twists are genuine twists. The characterisation is lovely, very deft and economical. They make domesticity look edgy, sometimes dangerous, but they are also life-affirming.' - Lucienne Boyce, historical novelist and historian 'Very subtle, very English, very clever. I also loved the overall idea, the way the stories went from infancy to old age, shedding a revealing light on each stage. Good luck with this splendid collection.' - Marius Gabriel, author of historical novels and contemporary thrillers 'A joy to read, absolutely delightful!' - Georgia Rose, contemporary novelist 'The language reveals a sharp intellect and a broad knowledge.' Mari Howard, contemporary novelist 'Flash fiction is so hard to do and it was a pleasure to read.' - E J Eyles, mystery novelist Other reactions from early readers: 'a feather-light story', 'fabulous story with sinister undertones', 'brilliant!', 'like Roald Dahl's short stories', 'as sharp as a Kirsty McCall song', 'like a prose poem', 'a masterpiece', 'perfect', 'very powerful and mysterious', 'what a lovely idea!', 'laughed out loud at this one', 'rather moving'. All of the stories are contemporary, i.e. set in the 21st century. Topics covered include birth, childhood, youth, coming of age, friendship, love, dating, marriage, parenting, family life, parent and child relationships, infidelity, divorce, getting on with neighbours, death, loss, grief, bereavement and coming to terms with life at every stage. 'Quick Change' is the first in a planned series of collections of Debbie Young's flash fiction stories. Several of the stories were originally published on her author website, and 'Clean Linen' was chosen for the 2013 edition of FlashFlood, the online journal of National Flash Fiction Day (NFFD). Debbie's work has also been included in 'Eating My Words', NFFD's 2014 anthology of the best contemporary flash fiction authors. Stories in this collection: Out of the Mouths of Babes Going to Grandma's Penny for Them The Metamorphosis Peep Behind the Curtain The Art of Medicine The Alchemy of Chocolate The Impressionists Patient Virtue The Mutton and the Lamb Time Out Clean Linen Domestic Blisters Married Bliss Perfect Harmony Special Offer Autumn Leaves A Singular Life Funeral March The Comfort of Neighbours

Legendäres Black Uhuru 'Rockpalast'-Konzert aus 1981 auf DVD. Sly & Robbie rekrutierten den amerikanischen Rockgitarristen Daryl Thompson (¿ 2014), den sie aus der gemeinsamen Zeit mit PETER TOSH kannten, und engagierten den Keyboarder Franklyn "Bubbler" Waul. Der allerdings durfte nicht die reggae-typische Shuffle-Orgel spielen, sondern prügelte steady den Offbeat ins Piano. Diese zwei Musiker, die bei einigen Konzerten durch Keith Sterling und Mikey Chung ersetzt wurden, bildeten mit SLY & ROBBIE den harten Kern von BLACK UHURU, der zusammen mit einem zweiten Gitarristen und einem Perkussionisten auch in Essen die Bühne dominierte. Slys variantenreiche Drumpatterns, Robbies Bassschub, der schnörkellose Offbeat und Thompsons verzerrte Gitarrenlicks waren eine Kombination, die man so im Reggae noch nicht gehört hatte. Eine hypnotische Wall Of Sound als Basis für die revolutionären Rastafari-Lyrics von Michael Rose, Puma Jones und Duckie Simpson, sporadisch durchbrochen von überraschenden Echoeffekten. Nach dem Auftritt im Rockpalast feierten BLACK UHURU weltweit Erfolge.

Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As "Mrs. Ro Grandee", she's trapped in a marriage that's thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting "Ro" make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches. She seems doomed to spend the rest of her life battered outside by her husband and inside by her former self, until fate throws her in the path of an airport gypsy - one who shares her past and knows her future. The tarot cards foretell that Rose's beautiful, abusive husband is going to kill her. Unless she kills him first. Hot-blooded Rose Mae escapes from under Ro's perky compliance and emerges with a gun and a plan to beat the hand she's been dealt. Following messages that her long-missing mother has left hidden for her in graffiti and behind paintings, Rose and her dog Gretel set out from Amarillo, Texas, back to her hometown of Fruiton, Alabama, and then on to California, unearthing a host of family secrets as she goes. Running for her life, she realizes that she must face her past in order to overcome her fate---death by marriage---and become a girl who is strong enough to save herself from the one who loves her best. Backseat Saints will dazzle listeners with a fresh and heartwrenching portrayal of the lengths a mother will go to right the wrongs she's created, and how far a daughter will go to escape the demands of forgiveness. With the seed of a minor character from her popular best-seller Gods in Alabama, Jackson has built a whole new story full of her trademark sly wit, endearingly off-kilter characters, and utterly riveting plot twists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joshilyn Jackson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hach/000459/bk_hach_000459_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
