An adrenaline-packed ride to save the world from a horrific conspiracy straight out of the darkest hours of history. Are Hitler's atrocities really over? For depressive Wall Street trader Jeremy Corbin, absolute truths become undeniable lies overnight. He finds out his long-lost father is dead, he discovers his boss's real identity, and he ends up boarding a plane to Zurich. He has a Nazi medallion in his pocket, a hot CIA bodyguard next to him, and a clearly dangerous Mossad agent on his tail. What was his father investigating? Why was his mother assassinated? Why are unknown sides fighting over him with automatic weapons? Can the conspiracy be stopped? This fast-paced thriller full of humor and humanity was an instant sensation in France. Think a dash of Robin Cook, a splash of John Grisham, and pinch of Clive Cussler with a very distinctive voice all its own. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Vick. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/019501/bk_adbl_019501_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Colnett (1753 1 September 1806) was an officer of the British Royal Navy, an explorer, and a maritime fur trader. He served under James Cook during Cook''s second voyage of exploration. Later he led two private trading expeditions that involved collecting sea otter pelts in the Pacific Northwest of North America and selling them in Canton, China, where the British East India Company maintained a trading post. Wintering in the recently discovered Hawaiian Islands was a key component of the new trade system. Colnett is remembered largely for his involvement in the Nootka Crisis of 1789 a dispute between British traders and the Spanish Navy, initially over the use of Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island, then as an international crisis that lead to the brink of war before being peacefully resolved through diplomacy and the signing of the Nootka Conventions.

George Dixon (Royal Navy officer)

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Captain George Dixon RN (1748 1795) was an English sea captain, explorer, and maritime fur trader. George Dixon was "born in Leath Ward, a native of Kirkoswald". The son of Thomas Dixon, he was baptised in Kirkoswald on 8 July 1748. He served under Captain Cook in his third expedition, where he learned about the commercial possibilities along the northwest coast of North America. After the end of Cook's expedition, Dixon became a captain in the Royal Navy. History has not served Dixon well, for he is the least known of those who served and or were taught by Captain Cook and is only rarely mentioned in history books and when he is, he is relegated to a minor figure who is overshadowed by Cook and William Bligh, another officer on Cook's ill-fated third trip. In 1782, George Dixon was engaged by William Bolts. The Wiener Zeitung newspaper of 29 June 1782 carried a report from Fiume that, in the early days of this month, Mr. von Bolts, Director of the Triestine East India Company, together with the English captain, Mr. Digson, arrived in this city .

The Gifts of Frank Cobbold
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This biography of Frank Cobbold opens when Frank goes to sea on a Clipper aged 14. It follows him through inexperience as a Fijian trader who escaped the cannibals' cook pot and survived one of the worst hurricanes in living memory. In Australia he learned the skills of a surveyor and quickly became a sought-after and trusted station manager. Despite problems that would have defeated a less resolute man he took droughts, cheats and unyielding land tenure regulations in his stride to become one of Australia's great pioneering pastoralists. Admired by fellow bushmen, trusted by his partners and wooed by bankers, his gritty determination earned him a small fortune which he gave away. It's a remarkable story.
