The Cinderella murder by Mary Higgins Clark( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a first-time collaboration, "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark partners with bestselling author Alafair Burke to deliver a brand new suspense series about a television program featuring cold case murders. Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program--a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected--is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode. Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan's boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church that was active on campus? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered? With the help of lawyer and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood's elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen--but is Cinderella's murderer ready for a close-up? Together Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke deliver an exciting publishing event: the start of a thrilling new series guaranteed to keep you guessing until the last suspenseful page"--

Fleeing the disastrous and humiliating arrest of her hedge fund executive husbandto-be, Celia Kilbride, a gems and jewelry expert, hopes to escape from public attention and allegations she was a co-conspirator by lecturing on a brand-new cruise ship -- the Queen Charlotte. On board she meets eighty-six-year-old Lady Emily Haywood, "Lady Em," as she's known throughout the world. Immensely wealthy, Lady Em plans to wear her priceless emerald Cleopatra necklace, which, according to legend, places a deadly curse on whoever brings it to sea. The Queen Charlotte is three days out and Lady Em is found dead -- and the necklace is missing. Is it the work of her apparently devoted assistant or her lawyerexecutor, both of whom she had invited to join her on the cruise? Is it the acclaimed Shakespearean scholar who is lecturing on board, or a guest on the ship who is planning to spread his wife's ashes at sea? Or is it the young lawyer who tries to persuade Lady Em to return the necklace to its rightful owner, Egypt? The list of suspects is large and growing. Celia does not realize that her friendship with Lady Em has not escaped the notice of the killer. With the help of her new friends Willy and Alvirah Meehan, she must avoid the mortal danger that awaits her before the ship reaches its final destination."--

Memory hackers : the science behind memories( Visual )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memory is the glue that binds our mental lives. Without it, we'd be prisoners of the present, unable to use the lessons of the past to change our future. From our first kiss to where we put our keys, memory represents who we are and how we learn and navigate the world. But how does it work? Neuroscientists using cutting-edge techniques are exploring the precise molecular mechanisms of memory. By studying a range of individuals ranging from an 11-year-old whiz-kid who remembers every detail of his life to a woman who had memories implanted, scientists have uncovered a provocative idea. For much of human history, memory has been seen as a tape recorder that faithfully registers information and replays intact. But now, researchers are discovering that memory is far more malleable, always being written and rewritten, not just by us, but by others. We are discovering the precise mechanisms that can explain and even control our memories. The question is -- are we ready?

How had Mrs. Olinski chosen her sixth-grade Academic Bowl team? She had a number of answers. But were any of them true? How had she really chosen Noah and Nadia and Ethan and Julian? And why did they make such a good team? It was a surprise to a lot of people when Mrs. Olinski's team won the sixth-grade Academic Bowl contest at Epiphany Middle School. It was an even bigger surprise when they beat the seventh grade and the eighth grade, too. And when they went on to even greater victories, everyone began to ask: How did it happen? It happened at least partly because Noah had been the best man (quite by accident) at the wedding of Ethan's grandmother and Nadia's grandfather. It happened because Nadia discovered that she could not let a lot of baby turtles die. It happened when Ethan could not let Julian face disaster alone. And it happened because Julian valued something important in himself and saw in the other three something he also valued. Mrs. Olinski, returning to teaching af
