Série « Krewe of Hunters » « Viens vite, j’ai besoin de toi ! » Lorsque Abigail se rend à Savannah où son grand-père la réclame, un terrible spectacle l’attend : le vieil homme gît à terre, près de son restaurant, emporté par une crise cardiaque. Par-delà la tristesse, Abigail est saisie par le doute : a-t-il cherché à l’avertir d’un danger ? Les policiers ont beau se montrer sceptiques, elle est de plus en plus persuadée qu’il s’agit d’un meurtre. Peut-être parce que d’autres morts ont été retrouvés à Savannah en l’espace de quelques jours... Ou peut-être parce que Blue, le fantôme de la maison, lui est apparu à son arrivée, comme à chaque fois qu’une menace pèse sur elle... Déterminée à agir, Abigail fait appel à une unité spécialisée du FBI qui lui envoie l’agent Malachi. Un homme qui, en plus d’être aussi têtu qu’elle, possède le même don pour voir les morts. Et, comme leur nombre s’accroît de jour en jour à Savannah, quatre yeux valent mieux que deux...

Son indéniable talent pour le suspense, sa nervosité d’écriture et la variété des genres qu’elle aborde la classent régulièrement dans la liste des meilleures ventes du New York Times.

Rock Chick Rescue takes you on a wild ride with Jet, Eddie and the gang as they wrestle bad guys in a bagel shop, hit Denver's backstreet poker tables (with big hair), and help the strippers at Smithie's take down a would-be murderer. Through this, Jet's got to learn that, even when life made you give up your dreams, you can still end up with the (hot) guy.

Wolf among Wolves is a sweeping saga of the collapse of a culture — its economy and government — and the common man’s struggle to survive it all. Set in Weimar Germany soon after Germany’s catastrophic loss of World War I, the story follows a young gambler, Wolfgang Pagel, who loses everything in Berlin, then flees the chaotic city, where worthless money and shortages are causing pandemonium. Once in the countryside, however, Pagel finds a defeated German army that has decamped there to foment insurrection. Somehow, amidst it all, he finds romance. Fast-moving as a thriller, fascinating as the best historical fiction, and with lyrical prose that packs a powerful emotional punch, Wolf among Wolves is an immensely absorbing work of literature.

In Assessment and Intervention for Executive Function Difficulties, McCloskey, Perkins, and Diviner provide a unique blend of theory, research, and practice that offers clinicians an overarching framework for the concept of executive functions (EFs) in educational settings. The conceptual model of executive functions is detailed, including their role in behavior, learning, and production across all settings. The heart of the book focus on the practical issues involved in the use of assessment tools, tests, report writing, and the implementation and follow-up of targeted interventions using the EF model. Six case studies are introduced in Chapter 1 and followed throughout the book, building understanding of the executive function difficulties of each child, assessment for identifying the difficulties, and interventions for dealing with the difficulties. An additional case study is discussed in detail in one of the concluding chapters, and a companion CD will provide the practitioner with a wealth of assessment forms, parent and teacher handouts, behavior tracking charts, and report/documentation forms.
