Beat goes on  book

...THE BEAT GOES ON is the ultimate Ian Rankin treasure trove--a must-have book for crime fiction aficionados and a superb introduction for anyone looking to experience DI John Rebus, and the dark, twist-filled crimes he investigates.


Child 44     dvd

...Written by Richard Price (“The Color of Money” “Sea of Love”), the script of “Child 44” attempts to cover too many territories like Stalinism and Holodomor. To be sure, the film benefits from the strong acting from the leads Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace (this is part a love story) and director Daniel Espinosa (“Easy Money” “Safe House”) does his best to keep up the pace, but with the limited success, especially in the second half of the story, in which things happen in a too incredible way (the transport train scene is just one of them).  ...   --amazon--

Devil's bridge     book

It’s a brave author who does something radically different in a hugely successful long-running series. But in Devil’s Bridge, the seventeenth outing for New York prosecutor Alex Cooper, best-selling thriller writer Linda Fairstein does just that.  --amazon--

Divergent series :Insurgent     dvd

Tris and Four race to unlock the truth about the past in this star-powered, action packed second adventure from the Divergent series.


Far from the madding crowd   dvd

In victorian England, the independent and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep framer, Frank Troy a reckless sergeant and William Boldwood a prosperous and mature bachelor.  --amazon--

  Forensics: what bugs, burns, prints, DNA, and more ...     book

...The dead talk—to the right listener. They can tell us all about themselves: where they came from, how they lived, how they died, and, of course, who killed them. Forensic scientists can unlock the mysteries of the past and help serve justice using the messages left by a corpse, a crime scene, or the faintest of human traces. Forensics draws on interviews with some of these top-level professionals, ground-breaking research, and McDermid’s own original interviews and firsthand experience on scene with top forensic scientists.  -- amazon--

Go set a watchman      book

Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision—a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic.  --amazon--

The Knick   first season       dvd

Set in downtown New York in 1900 - ...  The Knick centers on the Knickerbocker Hospital (dubbed The Knick), which faces a major upheaval due to poor finances and an exodus of wealthy patients. The one remaining star is Dr. Thackery (played by Clive Owen) who along with the hospital staff of surgeons, nurses and other personnel must struggle to keep both themselves and the hospital going.   --amazon--

Based on the bestselling book by Nicholas Sparks, this romantic drama center on a young couple who make a fateful connection that changes their lives forever.
