Download and read online The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner in PDF and EPUB The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner - Written by Himself - With a Detail of Curious Traditionary Facts, and other Evidence, by the Editor - By James Hogg NEW COMPLETE EDITION The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, (Full title, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner: Written by Himself: With a detail of curious traditionary facts and other evidence by the editor) is a novel by the Scottish author James Hogg, published anonymously in 1824. Considered by turns part-gothic novel, part-psychological mystery, part-metafiction, part-satire, part-case study of totalitarian thought, it can also be thought of as an early example of modern crime fiction in which the story is told, for the most part, from the point of view of its criminal anti-hero. The action of the novel is located in a historically definable Scotland with accurately observed settings, and simultaneously infers a pseudo-Christian world of angels, devils, and demonic possession. The first edition sold very poorly and the novel suffered from a period of critical neglect, especially in the nineteenth century. However, since the latter part of the twentieth century it has won greater critical interest and attention. It was praised by Andre Gide in an introduction to the 1947 reissue and described by the critic Walter Allen as 'the most convincing representation of the power of evil in our literature'. It has also been seen as a study of religious fanaticism through its deeply critical portrait of the Calvinist concept of predestination. It is written in Scottish English, with some sections of Scots that appear in dialogue.
Download and read online Miami Psychic in PDF and EPUB As a young psychic, Regina Milbourne became the unlikely and reluctant confidante to the denizens of Miami's seedy underworld. Murderers, thieves, crooked cops, pedophiles, cheating spouses, and Russian drug dealers all came to Regina, who charged (and ultimately paid) a premium to shield them from dangerous evil forces. Even when confronted with death, corruption, and life-threatening encounters, Regina stood by her promise to help anyone who sought her guidance. But when her and her family's lives were threatened, she decided to turn her back on the gift she's had since almost drowning at the age of twelve. In Miami Psychic, she comes clean, divulging—without revealing the identity of any of her clients—the unimaginable horrors and shocking confessions that she witnessed throughout her career. Part gypsy priestess and part psychologist, Regina has experienced it all—from a narcotics officer smuggling drugs to an identity thief plagued by a deceased brother and a Miami heiress cursed by black magic. This harrowing memoir reveals her story in a voice as raw and haunting as the world she came to know and ultimately left behind.
Download and read online The American Heiress in PDF and EPUB Now including an excerpt from VICTORIA: A Novel, by Daisy Goodwin, the Creator/Writer of the Masterpiece Presentation on PBS. "Anyone suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal symptoms (who isn't?) will find an instant tonic in Daisy Goodwin's The American Heiress. The story of Cora Cash, an American heiress in the 1890s who bags an English duke, this is a deliciously evocative first novel that lingers in the mind." --Allison Pearson, New York Times bestselling author of I Don't Know How She Does It and I Think I Love You Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts', suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals. Money, Cora soon learns, cannot buy everything, as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage. Witty, moving, and brilliantly entertaining, Cora's story marks the debut of a glorious storyteller who brings a fresh new spirit to the world of Edith Wharton and Henry James. "For daughters of the new American billionaires of the 19th century, it was the ultimate deal: marriage to a cash-strapped British Aristocrat in return for a title and social status. But money didn't always buy them happiness." --Daisy Goodwin in The Daily Mail One of Library Journal's Best Historical Fiction Books of 2011

Of his quest to bring the holy into the museum experience, and of his struggle, along the way, to reconcile his passion for acquiring and displaying sacred works of art with his suspicion that they were stolen. Among the cast of characters are the elegant French oil heiress Dominique de Menil, the notorious Turkish smuggler, Aydin Dikmen, and his slippery Dutch dealer, Michel van Rijn, the inscrutable and implacable Patriarchs of Ethiopia and Georgia, and the charismatic President of Georgia, Eduard Shevardnadze. And the mysterious Mr. R. Egrette, a museum insider who in 1951 stole a tiny Renoir as a present for his girlfriend, that finally turned up and was returned 60 years later "
