Bury Your Dead (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Mystery) by Louise Penny. . .
 
Check out the Lady Authors @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe. .
 
It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful.
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come not to join the rebels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong.
But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society, where an obsessive historian's quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder.
Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?
 
Although he is supposed to be on leave, Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder.
"It doesn't make sense," Olivier’s partner writes every day. "He didn't do it, you know."
As past and present collide in this astonishing novel, Gamache must relive the terrible event of his own past before he can bury his dead.

Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion and The Natural History of Religion by David Hume - edited by John Charles Addison Gaskin. . .
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange.
 
David Hume is one of the most provocative philosophers to have written in English.
His Dialogues ask if a belief in God can be inferred from what is known of the universe, or whether such a belief is even consistent with such knowledge.
The Natural History of Religion investigates the origins of belief, and follows its development from polytheism to dogmatic monotheism.
Together, these works constitute the most formidable attack upon religious belief ever mounted by a philosopher.
This new edition includes Section XI of The Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and a letter by Hume in which he discusses Dialogues.

Tell Tale: Short Stories by Jeffrey Archer. . .
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe. . . .
 
Nearly a decade after his last volume of short stories was published, Jeffrey Archer returns with his eagerly-awaited, brand-new collection TELL TALE, giving us a fascinating, exciting and sometimes poignant insight into the people he has met, the stories he has come across and the countries he has visited during the past ten years.
 
Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to find out Who Killed the Mayor? and the pretentious schoolboy in A Road to Damascus, whose discovery of the origins of his father’s wealth changes his life in the most profound way.
 
Revel in the stories of the 1930’s woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League University in A Gentleman and A Scholar while another young woman who thumbs a lift gets more than she bargained for in A Wasted Hour.
 
These wonderfully engaging and always refreshingly original tales prove not only why Archer has been compared by the critics to Dahl and Maugham, but why he was described by The Times as probably the greatest storyteller of our age.

Brainwash: The Secret History of Mind Control - by Dominic Streatfeild. . .
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe. .
 
What would it take to turn you into a suicide bomber?
 
How would you interrogate a member of Al Qaeda?
 
With access to formerly classified documentation and interviews from the CIA, the U.S. Army, MI5, MI6, and the British Intelligence Corps, acclaimed journalist Dominic Streatfeild traces the history of the world's most secret psychological procedure.
From the cold war to the height of today's war on terror, groups as dissimilar as armies, religious cults, and advertising agencies have been accused of brainwashing. But what does this mean?
Is it possible to erase memories or to implant them artificially? Do heavy-metal records contain subliminal messages? Do religious cults brainwash recruits? What were the CIA and MI6 doing with LSD in the 1950's? How far have the world's militaries really gone?
From the author of the definitive history of cocaine, Brainwash is required reading in an era of cutting-edge and often controversial interrogation practices.
More than just an examination of the techniques used by the CIA, the KGB, and the Taliban, it is also a gripping, full history of the heated efforts to master the elusive, secret techniques of mind control.

Hillbilly Elegy A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance.. .

@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe. .

From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis that of white working-class Americans.

The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachian region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them.

They raised a middle-class family, and eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving generational upward mobility.

But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that this is only the short, superficial version.

Vance’s grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother, struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, and were never able to fully escape the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America.

Vance piercingly shows how he himself still carries around the demons of their chaotic family history.

A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels.

And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

The Wood Beyond by Reginald Hill. . .
 
Find this and lots more of Reg's books @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse . . .
 
The old trick of splitting a central character into two very different parts and using the tension to create literary sparks has worked for writers as diverse as Rex Stout (Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin) and Patrick O'Brian (Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin).
 
Nobody in the mystery field does it better these days than Hill, whose down-and-dirty Inspector Dalziel (pronounced Dah-eel in the A&E TV series) jigs and jousts wonderfully with his smart, sensitive sidekick Pascoe.
 
Their latest outing is one of the best in the series, with Pascoe digging up some old bones and family Secrets from his own past.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Restless Genius by Leo Damrosch. .

This book USA cost $15.95 - our price 160 baht + 50% trade in for credit when you have finished with it @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange...

The extraordinary life of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the eighteenth-century literary genius who changed the course of history, traced with novelistic verve. Motherless child, failed apprentice, autodidact, impossibly odd lover, Jean-Jacques Rousseau burst unexpectedly onto the eighteenth-century scene as a literary provocateur whose works electrified readers from the start.

Rousseau’s impact on American social and political thought remains deep, wide, and, to some, even infuriating. Leo Damrosch beautifully mines Rousseau’s books, The Social Contract, one of the greatest works on political theory and a direct influence on the French and American revolutions; Emile, a groundbreaking treatise on education; and the Confessions, which created the genre of introspective autobiography, as works still uncannily alive and provocative to us today. Damrosch’s triumph is to integrate the story of Rousseau’s extraordinarily original writings with the tumultuous life that produced them.

Rousseau’s own words and those of people who knew him help create an accessible, vivid portrait of a questing man whose strangeness, as punishing and punished lover, difficult friend, and father who famously consigned his infant children to a foundling home still fascinates.

This, the first single-volume biography of Rousseau in English, is as masterfully written as it is definitive. Leo Damrosch is the Ernest Bernbaum Professor of Literature at Harvard University.

He has written widely on eighteenth-century writers. Praise for Jean-Jacques Rousseau... "Leo Damrosch vivid biography enables us to plunge deeply into Rousseau's singular life, conjure up its crucial encounters, retrace its twisting paths, and supplement Rousseau's own claims about himself with the detailed, often contradictory testimony of the contemporaries he so unsettled and inspired."

Stephen Greenblatt, author of Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare "These pages bring to life the Europe of the ancien regime, a desiccated, sybaritic, superstitious, oppressive world about to be terribly and fatally convulsed.

And they also bring to astonishing life a great agent of that convulsion, an impossible man whose books helped to make modern life possible.

Leo Damrosch not only helps us understand Rousseau, his loves and his hates, his genius and his foolishness.

He makes us see Rousseau.

And, as he shows again and again in this immensely enjoyable and fast-paced story, that is Rousseau’s special and permanent fascination, because when we see him, we are seeing ourselves."

Louis Menand, author of The Metaphysical Club and American Studies

The Tattooist of Auschwitz (The Tattooist of Auschwitz #1) by Heather Morris...

Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange...

In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

When his captors discover that he speaks several languages, he is put to work as a Tätowierer (the German word for tattooist), tasked with permanently marking his fellow prisoners. Imprisoned for more than two and a half years, Lale witnesses horrific atrocities and barbarism, but also incredible acts of bravery and compassion.

Risking his own life, he uses his privileged position to exchange jewels and money from murdered Jews for food to keep his fellow prisoners alive. One day in July 1942, Lale, prisoner 32407, comforts a trembling young woman waiting in line to have the number 34902 tattooed onto her arm.

Her name is Gita, and in that first encounter, Lale vows to somehow survive the camp and marry her. A vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Lale Sokolov's experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust, The Tattooist of Auschwitz is also a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.

America's Great Game: The CIA's Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East - by Hugh Wilford. . .

This book is 715 baht Asia books - our price 180 baht + the 50% trade in for credit of your next book/s @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe. .

From the 9/11 attacks to waterboarding to drone strikes, relations between the United States and the Middle East seem caught in a downward spiral.

And all too often, the Central Intelligence Agency has made the situation worse.

But this crisis was not a historical inevitability, far from it. Indeed, the earliest generation of CIA operatives was actually the region’s staunchest western ally. In America’s Great Game, celebrated intelligence historian Hugh Wilford reveals the surprising history of the CIA’s pro-Arab operations in the 1940's and 50's by tracing the work of the agency’s three most influential and colorful officers in the Middle East.

Kermit "Kim" Roosevelt was the grandson of Theodore Roosevelt and the first head of CIA covert action in the region; his cousin, Archie Roosevelt, was a Middle East scholar and chief of the Beirut station.

The two Roosevelts joined combined forces with Miles Copeland, a maverick covert operations specialist who had joined the American intelligence establishment during World War II.

With their deep knowledge of Middle Eastern affairs, the three men were heirs to an American missionary tradition that engaged Arabs and Muslims with respect and empathy.

Yet they were also fascinated by imperial intrigue, and were eager to play a modern rematch of the "Great Game," the nineteenth-century struggle between Britain and Russia for control over central Asia.

Despite their good intentions, these "Arabists" propped up authoritarian regimes, attempted secretly to sway public opinion in America against support for the new state of Israel, and staged coups that irrevocably destabilized the nations with which they empathized.

Their efforts, and ultimate failure, would shape the course of U.S. Middle Eastern relations for decades to come. Based on a vast array of declassified government records, private papers, and personal interviews, America’s Great Game tells the riveting story of the merry band of CIA officers whose spy games forever changed U.S. foreign policy.

Twilight Over Burma: My Life as a Shan Princess by Inge Sargent. . . .

@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange -

Just married and returning to live in her new husband's native land, a young Austrian woman arrived with her Burmese husband by passenger ship in Rangoon in 1953. They were met at dockside by hundreds of well-wishers displaying colorful banners, playing music on homemade instruments, and carrying giant bouquets of flowers.

She was puzzled by this unusual welcome until her embarrassed husband explained that he was something more than a recently graduated mining engineer - he was the Prince of Hsipaw, the ruler of an autonomous state in Burma Shan mountains.

And these people were his subjects!

She immersed herself in the Shan lifestyle, eagerly learning the language, the culture, and the history of the Shan hill people.

The Princess of Hsipaw fell in love with this remote, exotic land and it's warm and friendly people. She worked at her husband's side to bring change and modernization to their primitive country.

Her efforts to improve the education and health care of the country, and her husband's commitment to improve the economic well-being of the people made them one of the most popular ruling couples in Southeast Asia.

Then the violent military coup of 1962 shattered the idyllic existence of the previous ten years.

Her life irrevocably changed. Inge Sargent tells a story of a life most of us can only dream about.

She vividly describes the social, religious, and political events she experienced.

She details the day-to-day living as a "reluctant ruler" and her role as her husband's equal - a role that perplexed the males in Hsipaw and created awe in the females.

And then she describes the military events that threatened her life and that of her children.

Twilight over Burma is a story of a great happiness destroyed by evil, of one woman's determination and bravery against a ruthless military regime, and of the truth behind the overthrow of one of Burma's most popular local leaders.

Corpus (Tom Wilde #1) by Rory Clements.. . .
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange -
 
1936.
Europe is in turmoil.
The Nazis have marched into the Rhineland.
In Russia, Stalin has unleashed his Great Terror.
Spain has erupted in civil war.
 
In Berlin, a young Englishwoman evades the Gestapo to deliver vital papers to a Jewish scientist.
Within weeks, she is found dead in her Cambridge bedroom, a silver syringe clutched in her fingers.
In a London club, three senior members of the British establishment light the Touch paper on a conspiracy that will threaten the very heart of government.
Even the ancient colleges of Cambridge are not immune to political division. Dons and students must choose a side: right or left, where do you stand?
 
When a renowned member of the county set and his wife are found horribly murdered, a maverick history professor finds himself dragged into a world of espionage which, until now, he has only read about in books.
But the deeper Thomas Wilde delves, the more he wonders whether the murders are linked to the death of the girl with the silver syringe - and, just as worryingly, to the scandal surrounding King Edward VIII and his mistress Wallis Simpson...
Set against the drumbeat of war and moving from Berlin to Cambridge, from Whitehall to the Kent countryside, and from the Fens to the Aragon Front in Spain, this big canvas international thriller marks the beginning of a major new series from Author Rory Clements.

The Chariot Boy: Math, a young charioteer, is a pawn drawn into the deadly game between the Emperor and the Spy, where death stalks the drivers - on the track and off it.

Bones Never Lie (Temperance Brennan Series) by Kathy Reichs. . . . .
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Guesthouse / Cafe, Pattaya.
 
In the acclaimed author’s thrilling novel, Brennan is at the top of her game in a battle of wits against the most monstrous adversary she has ever encountered.
 
Unexpectedly called in to the Charlotte PD’s Cold Case Unit, Dr. Temperance Brennan wonders why she’s been asked to meet with a homicide cop who’s a long way from his own jurisdiction.
The shocking answer, two child murders, separated by thousands of miles, have one thing in common - the killer. Years ago, Anique Pomerleau kidnapped and murdered a string of girls in Canada, then narrowly eluded capture.
It was a devastating defeat for her pursuers, Brennan and police detective Andrew Ryan.
Now, as if summoned from their nightmares, Pomerleau has resurfaced in the United States, linked to victims in Vermont and North Carolina.
When another child is snatched, the reign of terror promises to continue - unless Brennan can rise to the challenge and make good on her second chance to stop a psychopath.
 
But Brennan will have to draw her bitter ex-partner out of exile, keep the local police and feds from one another’s throats, and face more than just her own demons as she stalks the deadliest of predators into the darkest depths of madness.
 
In Bones Never Lie, Kathy Reichs never fails to satisfy readers looking for psychological suspense that’s more than skin-deep.
