Form your own street gang, investigate mysteries, liberate London.Dual protagonistWatch the events unfolding across The Greatest City in the world through the eyes of the Frye twins, trained to be assassins since their earliest years. Evie is the stealthiest of the two, virtually impossible to detect when she wishes, skilled with hidden blades, and with a mind for careful planning. Jacob is the fighter, preferring action and thinking on his feet to hours of meticulous planning. Alone they are dangerous, together they are a force of nature. And you can typically switch between them on the fly.Detailed progressionGain experience as you play and use it to upgrade and expand Jacob's and Evie's abilities, shaping them the way you want. Specialise them early on to highlight their innate talents, or even out their gifts with a bunch of upgrades outside of their specific proficiencies. It's up to you to decide. And since they share experience, you won't miss out on anything if you prefer to play one of them over the other!Your own gangIt wouldn't be Victorian London without street gangs, and you get to control your own. The Rooks are your crew to use against Templar-backed Blighters. Improve your lads' strengths, arm them with guns, and teach them how to hijack carriages for you to use to your own purposes. Alternatively, improve your web of connections and have the police turn a blind eye to your antics, how much gold you'll get from hired pickpockets, and more.Control London's underground with a heavy, but fair hand.Historical figuresIf you ever wanted to hunt mysteries with Charles Dickens, chat amiably with Florence Nightingale, or solve problems with Charles Darwin. You will have many chances to do all of these things during Assassin's Creed: Syndicate gameplay. Meet Alexander Graham Bell and let him tinker with your gear, who knows what wonders he'll craft for you? Get in touch with history through some of the most important figures of the era.More dynamic combatEnjoy the retouched, improved combat system, capitalising on Jacob's brawling talents. Switch targets on the fly, fight entire groups of enemies and get more fun out of crushing them mercilessly. Use brass knuckles, sword canes and more to turn into one of the most proficient fighters of the era. Add to that brutal finishers when you play your cards right, and combat in AC: Syndicate is better than ever before.London feels aliveThe beautiful, sprawling city of London is not some drab place without character. The policemen go about their business, the bystanders react to your actions, and the gang warfare adds interactivity and purpose to your travels. Respond to organically appearing emergencies, help citizens, live in Victorian London alongside them.

Sur le quai de la gare, un chat noir croise obliquement leur chemin. Elle déteste les chats. Plus encore les chats noirs. Mais elle ne dit rien et réprime un frisson. Comme pour récompenser cette retenue, il annonce qu'il fera le voyage avec elle jusqu'à Cannes, si elle le veut bien. C'est à peine si elle peut répondre tant elle éprouve de gratitude." Les personnages d'Alice Munro courent après le bonheur. Quête vaine, éperdue, étourdissante, mais qu'ils poursuivent sans relâche. Dans ce recueil de nouvelles, on croise une étudiante qui accepte les propositions indécentes d'un vieillard, une mère en deuil qui change d'identité ou une femme affrontant enfin sa part de cruauté. D'une écriture précise et sensible, Alice Munro met en évidence les lignes de force invisibles guidant chaque destin. L'interprétation d'Amira Casar ajoute son contrepoint aux paysages intérieurs de chaque personnage et fait affleurer la part énigmatique de toute conduite humaine. 1. French.

Award-winning narrator Alison Larkin gives thrilling voice to the elements of lesbian attraction and forbidden and dangerous desires in the story of Carmilla, the Gothic female vampire tale that inspired its more famous masculine counterpart Dracula."This double billing of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s Carmilla, the vampire story that inspired Stoker, is piercingly wonderful. Bookended by haunting music, the tales share gripping plots, first-person narrators, requisite settings in mountainous middle Europe, and some people with sharp teeth. They also have fantastic narrators. In Carmilla, Alison Larkin’s crystalline tone transmutes as needed from young English girl to old European man, and her pacing transforms the old-fashioned sentences into easy listening while maintaining tension. Clive Hayward’s performance of the tightly plotted Dracula is a tour de force of clear narration, ratcheting-up anxiety, and astonishing characterizations of everyone from English country gal to the Vlad himself. Do not miss the postproduction chat between Larkin and Hayward, which adds to the production’s many pleasures.” (Audiofile) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alison Larkin.

It is somewhere close to midnight on the clock when the men who fought the Second World War will still be with us. I have met just a few of them, sometimes goading them to reveal their experiences, at other times being simply a conduit to the river of their memories, sensing, on occasion, a kind of urgency to get it out there, just so these adventures and tragedies will not be lost to future enquiring minds. Michael Veitch has always been a keen historian and aeroplane fanatic. From a young age, he was obsessed with air force pilots and their machines. And with his gift for chat, he has once again captured the memories of these brave, lucky men who survived the 'unsurvivable'. The risks of not returning from flying missions in WWII were extremely high, so the stories are uniquely heroic, almost unbelievable. But these were ordinary men in extraordinary situations, and, in this third collection from Michael Veitch, they record their stories for future generations. 1. Language: English.

Nathan Stiedowe, tueur en série d'une intelligence et d'une force exceptionnelles, reconstitue avec minutie les crimes atroces de prédécesseurs célèbres. Il a pour double objectif de remplir sa mission à la perfection pour prouver qu'il est le plus fort de tous, et surtout de "se venger de la garce qui lui a volé sa vie". L'agent spécial du FBI Dana Whitestone, l'une des meilleures dans sa partie, est la seule capable de neutraliser cet homme qui ne commet pas d'erreur. Convaincu de sa supériorité absolue, Nathan laisse à son intention sur chaque scène de crime un "souvenir" macabre pour indiquer où il frappera la fois suivante. Indices révoltants qu'elle parvient à décrypter, mais chaque fois trop tard. Pour ce qui est de jouer au chat et à la souris dans un grand bain sanglant, ces deux-là rejoignent brillamment, sur l'échelle de l'horreur et de la manipulation, les personnages de Karin Slaughter et de Mo Hayder. Jon Osborne a travaillé ces dernières années comme reporter free-lance pour le "Naples Daily News" de Floride, où il a tout traité, des ventes de charité aux triples meurtres. C'est un vétéran de la Marine américaine. 1. French. Hélène Lausseur. http://samples.audible.de/bk/sixt/000141/bk_sixt_000141_sample.mp3.
