It's 1944.
Physics professor Alfred Mendel and his family are trying to flee volatile Paris when they are caught and forced onto a train along with thousands of other Jewish families.
At the other end of the long, torturous train ride, Alfred is separated from his family and sent to the men's camp, where all of his belongings are thrown onto the roaring fire,
his books, his papers, all his life's work.
The Nazis have no idea what they have just destroyed.
And without that physical record, Alfred is one of only two people in the world with his particular knowledge. Knowledge that could start a war, or end it.

In the late 1960's, NASA proposed hardware and mission parameters for an extended Apollo program that had flaws and never materialized.
Decades later, the existence of ice beds at the lunar south pole was discovered by NASA’s space probe Clementine and confirmed by the lunar satellite Lunar Prospector.
Now, author and Apollo missions historian Shane Johnson explores the fantastic possibilities of what might have transpired, had the more ambitious version of the Apollo program gone forward as originally planned.

The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer
by Philip Carlo

Traded In recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Cafe - Guesthouse *-* #Pattaya, #Thailand.

There were times at home when Richard would have one of his outbursts and break things and then lock himself in his office. 
Merrick would ask him to please calm down, to “please relax, Daddy.” 
During these episodes, Richard would explain in a matter-of-fact way, “You know if . . . if I kill Mommy, if something happens and she dies, I’ll have to kill you all . . . I can’t leave any witnesses.”

“Yes, Daddy. I know, Daddy,” she said.
