              A riveting, adrenaline-fueled tour of a vast, lawless, and rampantly criminal world that few have ever seen: the high seas. There are few remaining frontiers on our planet. But perhaps the wildest, and least understood, are the world's oceans: too big to police, and under no clea...r international authority, these immense regions of treacherous water play host to rampant criminality and exploitation. Traffickers and smugglers, pirates and mercenaries, wreck thieves and repo men, vigilante conservationists and elusive poachers, seabound abortion providers, clandestine oil-dumpers, shackled slaves and cast-adrift stowaways--drawing on five years of perilous and intrepid reporting, often hundreds of miles from shore, Ian Urbina introduces us to the inhabitants of this hidden world. Through their stories of astonishing courage and brutality, survival and tragedy, he uncovers a globe-spanning network of crime and exploitation that emanates from the fishing, oil, and shipping industries, and on which the world's economies rely. Both a gripping adventure story and a stunning expose, this unique work of reportage brings fully into view for the first time the disturbing reality of a floating world that connects us all, a place where anyone can do anything because no one is watching.

              Una extraordinaria coleccion de cuatro nuevos e irresistibles cuentos de ficcion escritos por el maestro del terror: Stephen King. En enero de 2021, un pequeno sobre dirigido al Detective Ralph Anderson es entregado a sus vecinos, la familia Conrad, ya que los Anderson se encuent...ran de vacaciones en las Bahamas. En letra grande, el sobre dice: NO RE-ENVIAR. GUARDAR HASTA SU LLEGADA. Cuando por fin abre el sobre, Ralph encuentra una memoria USB titulada La sangre manda. El USB contiene una especie de diario hablado hecho por Holly Gibney, con quien el detective alguna vez compartio un caso que comenzo en Oklahoma y termino en una cueva en Texas. Ese caso cambio para siempre la manera en que Ralph Anderson interpreta la realidad. Las ultimas palabras en el reporte de Holly son del 19 de diciembre de 2020. Suena como si le faltara el aire: Hice todo lo que pude, Ralph, pero puede que no sea suficiente. A pesar de todos mis planes, existe la posibilidad de que no salga de esto con vida. Si muero, y escoges continuar lo que he comenzado, cuidate. Por tu esposa y tu hijo. El cuento es un genero al que King ha regresado varias veces a lo largo de su carrera. La sangre manda es una coleccion unica y excepcional de varios cuentos escritos por el mejor autor de terror de nuestros tiempos.

              NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ONE OF NPR'S BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids and M Train, a profound, beautifully realized memoir in which dreams and reality are vividly woven into a tapestry of one transformative year. Following a run of... concerts at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore, Patti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland as a surreal lunar year begins, bringing with it unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. In a stranger's words, Anything is possible: after all, it's the year of the monkey. For Smith--inveterately curious, always exploring--the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in life's gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape. Taking us from California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places, this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment set in. But as Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope for a better world. Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smith's signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.

              Fernando Aramburu's internationally acclaimed novel evokes an unresolved history of violence, giving a fictional account of lives shattered by Basque terrorism even as it rekindles debate about truth and reconciliation. Lifetime friends become bitter enemies when the father of on...e family is killed by militants--one of whom is a son from the other family. Told in short sections highlighting a rich multiplicity of characters from all walks of life, Homeland brilliantly unfolds in nonlinear fashion as it traces the moral dilemmas faced by the families of murder victim and perpetrator alike. Aramburu alludes only obliquely to the historical context while he focuses on the psychological complexity of his characters and builds nearly unbearable suspense.

              A fascinating, unprecedented plunge into New York City's federal court system--a world of organized crime, terrorism, drug trafficking, and Wall Street criminality--and a revelatory look at how our justice system, and the pursuit of justice, really works. The Southern and Eastern... District Courts of New York are proving grounds for ambitious prosecutors who turn their service in government into power, position, and, in some cases, celebrity; these attorneys don't hope for victory in the courtroom, they expect it. In The Districts, Johnny Dwyer takes a comprehensive look at these two epicenters of power in our justice system, exposing the incentives that drive how America chooses to punish crime and what those choices reveal about our politics and our society. Dwyer takes us not just into the courtrooms but also into the lives of those who enter through their doors: the judges and defendants, prosecutors and defense counsels, winners and losers. Brimming with detail and drama, The Districts illuminates the meaning of intent, of reasonable doubt, of deception, and--perhaps most important--of justice

              From a leading philosopher of the mind comes this lucid, provocative argument that offers a radically new picture of human consciousness--panpsychism. Understanding how brains produce consciousness is one of the great scientific challenges of our age. Some philosophers argue that... consciousness is something extra, beyond the physical workings of the brain. Others think that if we persist in our standard scientific methods, our questions about consciousness will eventually be answered. And some even suggest that the mystery is so deep, it will never be solved. Decades have been spent trying to explain consciousness from within our current scientific paradigm, but little progress has been made. Now, Philip Goff offers an exciting alternative that could pave the way forward. Rooted in an analysis of the philosophical underpinnings of modern science and based on the early twentieth-century work of Arthur Eddington and Bertrand Russell, Goff makes the case for panpsychism, a theory which posits that consciousness is not confined to biological entities but is a fundamental feature of all physical matter--from subatomic particles to the human brain. In Galileo's Error, he has provided the first step on a new path to the final theory of human consciousness.

              INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Fast and thrilling . . . Life Undercover reads as if a John le Carre character landed in Eat Pray Love. --The New York Times Amaryllis Fox's riveting memoir tells the story of her ten years in the most elite clandestine ops unit of the CIA, hunti...ng the world's most dangerous terrorists in sixteen countries while marrying and giving birth to a daughter Amaryllis Fox was in her last year as an undergraduate at Oxford studying theology and international law when her writing mentor Daniel Pearl was captured and beheaded. Galvanized by this brutality, Fox applied to a master's program in conflict and terrorism at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, where she created an algorithm that predicted, with uncanny certainty, the likelihood of a terrorist cell arising in any village around the world. At twenty-one, she was recruited by the CIA. Her first assignment was reading and analyzing hundreds of classified cables a day from foreign governments and synthesizing them into daily briefs for the president. Her next assignment was at the Iraq desk in the Counterterrorism center. At twenty-two, she was fast-tracked into advanced operations training, sent from Langley to the Farm, where she lived for six months in a simulated world learning how to use a Glock, how to get out of flexicuffs while locked in the trunk of a car, how to withstand torture, and the best ways to commit suicide in case of captivity. At the end of this training she was deployed as a spy under non-official cover--the most difficult and coveted job in the field as an art dealer specializing in tribal and indigenous art and sent to infiltrate terrorist networks in remote areas of the Middle East and Asia. Life Undercover is exhilarating, intimate, fiercely intelligent--an impossible to put down record of an extraordinary life, and of Amaryllis Fox's astonishing courage and passion.
