But no one anticipates the terrifying turn of events that forces him to quarantine everyone in the Capitol building. A terrorist group calling itself "Genesis" has unleashed WRX3883, a deadly, highly contagious virus, into the building. No one fully knows the deadly effect of the germ except for the team responsible for its development—a team headed by Allaire, himself. The only one who might be able to help is virologist Griffin Rhodes, currently in solitary confinement in a maximum security federal prison for alleged terrorist acts, including the attempted theft of WRX3883 from the lab where he worked. Rhodes has no idea why he has been arrested, but when Allaire offers to free him in exchange for his help combating the virus, he reluctantly agrees to do what he can to support the government that has imprisoned him without apparent cause. <br /><br />Meanwhile, every single person in line for presidential succession is trapped inside the Capitol—every person except one: the Director of Homeland Security, who is safely at home in Minnesota, having been selected as the "Designated Survivor" for this event. With enemies both named and unnamed closing in, and the security of the nation at stake, Griff must unravel the mysteries of WRX3883 without violating his pledge as a scientist to use no animal testing in his experiments…and time is running out. <br /><br />Tense, thrilling, and entirely plausible, <i>A Heartbeat Away </i>will make you reflect, wonder, and be truly afraid.|

| Author : Michael Palmer Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers Books Price : $4.99 Release Date : 2017-11-09 Description : <b>“This is the story of the Newtown Murders..”</b><br /><br />
A story of sex and repression, rejection and hate.<br />
An intellectual thriller in the tradition of ‘The Name Of The Rose’ and ‘The Interpretation of Murder’.<br /><br />
Two gruesome murders occur at midnight, in the pouring rain, of a man and a woman. All the suspects have their motives, of lust and love, greed and revenge; but it proves hard for a famous detective to decide between a shady M.P., gangsters and prostitutes, between a celebrated philosopher and his wife. Somebody is lying. But who? Who is the monster hiding within this web of deceit? As the story unfolds, the lies mount up and the truth becomes even less certain. Motives begin to shift as we learn more about the victims. Then there are events and conversations which, as the reader looks back, take on an entirely different significance, now seen as containing clues, perhaps previously missed, towards the eventual unmasking of the murderer. All is finally revealed through the killer’s own psychoanalysis, a story of sex and repression, rejection and hate.<br /><br />
<i>The Midnight Lie</i> falls with the tradition of thrillers with an intellectual core. It is philosophical-psychoanalytical murder story set in Manchester. Wrapped around a rapidly unfolding story – with a cast of shady and memorable characters - are clues embedded within discussions on the nature of lying - how we can deceive others and ourselves - on the meaning of love and hate, and on the inner compulsions that can lead to revenge and murder.|
| Author : Michael Palmer Genre : Poetry Books Fiction & Literature Price : $9.99 Release Date : 2016-06-28 Description : A powerful, indelible new collection by Michael Palmer—“one of America’s most important poets” (The Harvard Review)<br /><br />Michael Palmer’s new book—a collection in two parts, “The Laughter of the Sphinx” and “Still (a cantata—or nada—for Sister Satan)”—contains 52 poems.<br /><br />The title poem begins “The laughter of the Sphinx / caused my eyes to bleed” and haunts us with the ruin we are making of our world, even as Palmer revels in its incredible beauty. Such central tensions in The Laughter of the Sphinx—between beauty and loss, love and death, motion and rest, knowledge and ignorance—glow in Palmer’s lyrical play of light and entirely hypnotize the reader. The stakes, as always with Palmer, are very high, essentially life and death: “Please favor us with a reply / regarding our one-time offer / which will soon expire.”|

| Author : Michael Palmer Genre : Philosophy Books Nonfiction Professional & Technical Education Price : $24.99 Release Date : 2009-02-27 Description : The word ‘atheism’ is derived from the Greek: a meaning ‘not’ is conjoined with theos meaning ‘god’. So atheism may be defined as follows: it is the belief that there is no God.
Unfortunately definition of terms is rarely this straightforward. In this educational book, Michael Palmer undertakes to analyse, develop and discuss the complex and too often reduced notion of atheism. In spite of the consciously atheist point of view adopted by the author, the volume remains critical and objective, making religious, philosophical and political concepts around atheism understandable. Even though the book clearly addresses a young audience, any kind of reader will find food for thought in this vivid and detailed work.|

| Author : Michael Palmer Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers Books Price : $9.99 Release Date : 2014-03-03 Description : Bezprecedensowy akt terroru inicjuje drugą kadencję prezydenta USA Jamesa Allaire'a. W wypełnionej po brzegi sali Izby Reprezentantów w Kapitolu dochodzi do jednoczesnej eksplozji kilkunastu pojemników zawierających wywołujący pandemię wirus WRX3883. Świadom śmiertelnego zagrożenia, Allaire zarządza natychmiastową przymusową kwarantanę kilkuset znajdujących się w budynku osób, włącznie z nim samym oraz niemal wszystkimi członkami sukcesji prezydenckiej, w tym wiceprezydentem, przewodniczącym Senatu, sekretarzem stanu, obrony i skarbu. Każdy próbujący opuścić siedzibę amerykańskiego Kongresu ma zostać zastrzelony na miejscu. Za atakiem stoi tajemnicza grupa Genesis – nieuchwytni terroryści, nie wysuwający na razie żadnych żądań, odpowiedzialni za wcześniejsze zamachy, w których zginęło wielu obywateli Stanów Zjednoczonych. Nikt nie wie, kim są; FBI nie dysponuje żadnymi tropami. Sytuacja jest niezwykle dramatyczna. Zakażenie wirusem kończy się śmiercią w potwornych męczarniach już po kilkunastu dniach. WRX3883 został stworzony przez człowieka, a prace nad nim prowadzono w tajnym rządowym laboratorium w Kansas. Była szefowa laboratorium, doktor Chen, przepadła bez śladu przed kilkoma miesiącami. Tylko jeden człowiek może ocalić życie uwięzionym w Kapitolu – wybitny wirusolog Griffin Rhodes – na rozkaz prezydenta wtrącony do więzienia o zaostrzonym rygorze za rzekomą próbę kradzieży wirusa. W zamian za obietnicę odzyskania wolności Rhodes zgadza się pomóc w stworzeniu szczepionki. Zaczyna się wyścig z czasem: umierają kolejne osoby zarażone wirusem, pogarsza się stan prezydenta. Niezidentyfikowani wrogowie – terroryści z Genesis oraz ich wspólnicy wśród członków rządu – śledzą każdy krok Griffina, robiąc wszystko, by zniweczyć jego wysiłki...|

| Author : Michael Palmer Genre : Politics & Current Events Books History World Price : $38.99 Release Date : 1992-01-29 Description : More clearly than any previous work on the subject, Michael Palmer's Love of Glory and the Common Good defines the relationship between Periclean democracy and the decline in Athenian political life that followed the death of Pericles. The author elaborates upon the views of Thucydides, who saw the subsequent tyrannical rule of Alcibiades and the accompanying disintegration of Athenian political life as a logical consequence of the defects in the speeches and deeds that Pericles used to inspire the Athenian people. With careful attention to details in the order and structure of Thucydides' narrative, Palmer shows this historian as a political thinker of the first rank who deserves the same careful study accorded to Plato and Aristotle.|
| Author : Michael Palmer Genre : Religion & Spirituality Books Price : $18.99 Release Date : 2008-12-02 Description : Arguing that a 'new atheism', driven largely by Darwinian objections to God's existence, has limited debate to a scientific framework, The Atheist's Primer reinstates the importance of philosophy in the debate about God's existence and in so doing recovers the distinguished philosophical tradition of atheism, which Dawkins and others have obscured.<br /> Beginning with the Ancient Greeks and culminating with Hume, Michael Palmer provides the philosophical framework on which scientific objections to theism are hung. He explicates and comments on the thinking behind atheism, discussing issues such as evil, morality, miracles, and the motivations for belief. Although delving deeply into epistemological concerns, emphasising the disheartening limitations of mans capacity for knowledge and our materialist dependencies, Palmer concludes on a positive note arguing - alongside Nietzsche, Marx and Freud and many others - that happiness and personal fulfilment are to be found in the very materialism that religious belief rejects.<br /><br /> An eloquent abridgment of his previous work, <i>The Atheist's Creed</i>, which was aimed at the educational market, <i>The Atheist's Primer</i> is written in fluent and concise prose, making it an accessible introduction for the general reader.|

Comment s'y sont-ils implantés, ont-ils contribué au rayonnement des villes et à définir les contours de l'espace qu'elles dominent ? Quels furent et quels sont encore les relations entre les journalistes et les pouvoirs urbains ? La complaisance des premiers à l'égard des seconds, tentés par le contrôle de l'information locale à des fins de propagande ou de communication, relève-t-elle du cliché ou est-elle fondée ? Telles sont quelques unes des questions posées par cet ouvrage qui s'applique à saisir le rôle des médias dans la construction des identités urbaines, en France, de la seconde moitié du xviiie siècle à nos jours. Au carrefour de deux domaines de recherche en plein renouvellement, ce livre associe à la réflexion d'historiens modernistes et contemporanéistes, l'analyse de spécialistes d'autres sciences humaines (sociologie, politologie, information et communication). Il dégage, au total, de vastes champs d'études et met en perspective des interrogations que brouille parfois une actualité trop brûlante.|

Doktor Lou Welcome zabiera swojego największego przyjaciela, Capa Duncana, na konferencję w Atlancie.

W tym samym czasie w miejscowości położonej setki kilometrów od Atlanty nastoletnia dziewczyna walczy o życie z powodu zakażenia tymi samymi bakteriami.
