La suite d'une affaire des plus complexes pour Mary Lester... En reconnaissant la mystérieuse femme en noir qui squatte le luxueux appartement de madame Gougé, Mary comprend qu’elle tient peut-être le lien qui la mènera à la disparue. Lien bien ténu, bien fragile. Une prudente filature mènera nos deux flics jusqu’à une étrange demeure de Batz-sur-Mer, propriété d’un riche armateur nantais. Que dissimulent les impénétrables tours de pierre du castel Barbe-Torte ? Faute d’éléments probants, il est vain d’espérer obtenir une commission rogatoire pour perquisitionner la résidence d’une personnalité éminente de la bonne société. Mary va-t-elle se casser les dents sur les murailles du castel Barbe Torte ? Ce serait mal la connaître ! Quand les méthodes usuelles de la police s’avèrent inopérantes, il reste la ruse. Et, en la matière, le capitaine Lester n’est jamais prise au dépourvu. Laissez-vous emporter par ce polar breton haletant et plein d'humour ! EXTRAIT Gertrude, Fortin et Mary Lester dînaient en terrasse au port de plaisance de Pornichet. La douceur du temps, l’absence de vent permettaient cette fantaisie. Cependant, un seul couple, à l’autre bout de la terrasse en bois de teck, avait opté pour la vie au grand air. En revanche, la salle brillamment illuminée était aux trois quarts pleine. Gertrude n’en revenait toujours pas d’être là, avec les deux enquêteurs vedettes du commissariat de Quimper. À cette heure, elle aurait dû patrouiller dans les quartiers chauds de la ville, là où il y avait plus de mauvais coups que de manifestations de sympathie à recevoir. Elle regarda Mary avec reconnaissance : — Finalement vous avez plutôt la belle vie, capitaine... Elle regarda le grand lieutenant qui étudiait soigneusement le menu et ajouta : — Et toi aussi, Fortin ! CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE Habile, têtue, fine mouche, irrévérencieuse, animée d'un profond sens de la justice, d'un égal mépris des intrigues politiciennes, ce personnage attachant permet aussi une belle immersion, enquête après enquête, dans divers recoins de notre chère Bretagne. - Charbyde2, Babelio À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Cet ancien mareyeur breton devenu auteur de romans policiers a connu un parcours atypique ! Passionné de littérature, c’est à 20 ans qu’il donne naissance à ses premiers écrits, alors qu’il occupe un poste de poissonnier à Quimper. En 30 ans d’exercice des métiers de la Mer, il va nous livrer pièces de théâtre, romans historiques, nouvelles, puis une collection de romans d’aventures pour la jeunesse, et une série de romans policiers, Mary Lester. À travers Les Enquêtes de Mary Lester, aujourd’hui au nombre de quarante-sept, Jean Failler montre son attachement à la Bretagne, et nous donne l’occasion de découvrir non seulement les divers paysages et villes du pays, mais aussi ses réalités économiques. La plupart du temps basées sur des faits réels, ces fictions se confrontent au contexte social et culturel actuel. Pas de folklore ni de violence dans ces livres destinés à tous publics, loin des clichés touristiques, mais des enquêtes dans un vrai style policier.

A kind, elderly lady-meticulously groomed and showing no signs of derangement-appeals to Inspector Maigret, frightened because someone has been moving furniture in her apartment.

Touched by the imploring look in her eyes, Maigret promises to investigate-but someone gets there ahead of him.

“This book is epic.” —Cosmopolitan “A hopeful and moving love story.” —Publishers Weekly Fangirl meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this “sensitive and complex” (BCCB) coming-of-age novel from New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren about two boys who fall in love in a writing class—one from a progressive family and the other from a conservative religious community. Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah. But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity. It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months is a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.

What would you kill for? After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. This year, it is my turn. My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president's son—my soon-to-be husband—and return the Westfall family to power. But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he's not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy. Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him...

As two veteran teachers who have taught thousands of students, Joe Clement and Matt Miles have seen firsthand how damaging technology overuse and misuse has been to our students. Rather than becoming better problem solvers, kids look to Google to answer their questions for them. Rather than deepening students' intellectual curiosity, educational technology is too often cumbersome and distracting, causing needless frustration and greatly extending homework time. Rather than becoming the great equalizer, electronic devices are widening the achievement gap. On a mission to educate and empower parents, Clement and Miles provide many real-world examples and cite multiple studies showing how technology use has created a wide range of cognitive and social deficits in our young people. They lift the veil on what's really going on at school: teachers who are powerless to curb cell phone distractions; zoned-out kids who act helpless and are unfocused, unprepared, and antisocial; administrators who are too-easily swayed by the pro-tech "science" sponsored by corporate technology purveyors. They provide action steps parents can take to demand change and make a compelling case for simpler, smarter, more effective forms of teaching and learning.

French Cultural Politics & Music

This book draws upon both musicology and cultural history to argue that French musical meanings and values from 1898 to 1914 are best explained not in terms of contemporary artistic movements but of the political culture. During these years, France was undergoing many subtle yet profound political changes. Nationalist leagues forged new modes of political activity, as Jane F. Fulcher details in this important study, and thus the whole playing field of political action was enlarged. Investigating this transitional period in light of several recent insights in the areas of French history, sociology, political anthropology, and literary theory, Fulcher shows how the new departures in cultural politics affected not only literature and the visual arts but also music. Having lost the battle of the Dreyfus affair (legally, at least), the nationalists set their sights on the art world, for they considered France's artistic achievements the ideal means for furthering their conception of "French identity." French Cultural Politics and Music: From the Dreyfus Affair to the First World War illustrates the ways in which the nationalists effectively targeted the music world for this purpose, employing critics, educational institutions, concert series, and lectures to disseminate their values by way of public and private discourses on French music. Fulcher then demonstrates how both the Republic and far Left responded to this challenge, using programs and institutions of their own to launch counterdiscourses on contemporary musical values. Perhaps most importantly, this book fully explores the widespread influence of this politicized musical culture on such composers as d'Indy, Charpentier, Magnard, Debussy, and Satie. By viewing this fertile cultural milieu of clashing sociopolitical convictions against the broader background of aesthetic rivalry and opposition, this work addresses the changing notions of "tradition" in music--and of modernism itself. As Fulcher points out, it was the traditionalist faction, not the Impressionist one, that eventually triumphed in the French musical realm, as witnessed by their "defeat" of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
