NATIONAL BESTSELLER ? NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SUSPENSE MAGAZINE Rita Mae Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown return with a mystery starring Mary Minor ´´Harry´´ Haristeen, intrepid kitty sleuths Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee Tucker, the ever-faithful crime-solving corgi. This time around, Harry and her animal friends track a killer whose trail has gone as cold as the weather in December. NINE LIVES TO DIE Winter has come to Crozet, Virginia, bringing with it a fresh blanket of snow. Harry and her husband, Fair, are hip deep in their usual end-of-the-year activities: distributing food to needy residents, and shopping for outfits for the Silver Linings youth organization´s annual fundraising gala. But buried beneath the white stuff are dark secrets from Crozet´s past-and Harry and her posse of pet detectives are determined to sniff them out. Two Silver Linings mentors have been found dead in suspicious circumstances. If that weren´t enough to chill the bones of the locals, a pair of severed human fingers has turned up in a pencil jar in the bookkeeper´s office at St. Cyril´s church. What does this grisly display have to do with the mysterious disappearance of Harry´s voluptuous high school Latin teacher, a quarter of a century ago? Maybe nothing. But when the animals make another gruesome discovery in the woods behind Harry´s farm, it becomes clear that terrible crimes have been committed in Crozet-and somebody´s gone to great lengths to cover them up. It´s time to stop shoveling snow and start digging for clues. The truth will be revealed. A cold case will be solved. And a twenty-five-year-old love triangle is about to get untangled. The weather outside may be frightful, but Harry and her four-legged friends refuse to be spooked off the case. Praise for Nine Lives to Die ´´Witty and entertaining . . . a recipe for continued success and an engaging read.´´-Richmond Times-Dispatch ´´The unabashed loves of [Rita Mae Brown´s] life . . . are infectious.

Germany´s premier city, Berlin, is one of the fastest growing and intriguing in Europe. This guidebook, written by experienced travel writer Damien Simonis, expertly guides you through the varied land- and cityscapes that are today´s Berlin. Illustrated with more than 120 vivid, up-to-date photographs and nearly 20 detailed, full-color maps, this second edition gives you every tool you need to plan a trip to the center of the new Europe, from the historic and massive Reichstag building in the town center to the complex of museums and gardens at the former royal palace in the west at Charlottenburg. Starting with a detailed introduction to Berlin´s unique history, food, land, and culture--factors that have clearly shaped the distinctive volksgeist of the German people--the book then explores each of the neighborhoods that make up the city. Among the sights: the city´s grand pastoral thoroughfare in the center of town, Unter Den Linden; the Forum of Culture, home of Berlin´s concert hall and several excellent museums; the Tiergarden, the large central park that constitutes some of metropolis´s extensive green space; the quiet woods, rivers, and lakelands of Berlin´s far west; and the many world-class museums clustered on Museum Island in the east. In addition, an ´´Excursions´´ chapter steers you to the best day trips out of the city. Special features give comprehensive information on many diverse topics such as the story of the Berlin Wall; the city´s Jewish community; and a look at Berlin´s famous Christmas markets. The book also presents mapped, guided walks and tours through some of the city´s most fascinating areas, including a walk through Red Berlin and a drive through the Mecklenburg lake district. Experiential sidebars--such as reliving the feel of pre-war Berlin at a silent-movie theater or visiting the city´s famed museums when they´re open all night--show you details on how to immerse yourself in Berlin´s culture. In addition, a thorough Travelwise section provides recommendations for hotels and restaurants in all price ranges and in all areas. Whether you´re visiting Kurfürstendamm, Berlin´s main shopping street, revisiting history in front of the Brandenburg Gate, or strolling Frederick the Great´s sumptuous palaces and gardens at Potsdam, National Geographic Traveler: Berlin has everything you need to make your trip a memorable one. The National Geographic Traveler series is aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and look to a guidebook for expert advice and insider tips from a trustworthy source. We offer ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the feel of each destination not easily found online.
