She is the daughter of the Maharaja of Cooch Behar and the widow of the Maharaja of Jaipur. She was raised in a sumptuous palace staffed with 500 servants and she shot her first panther when she was twelve. She has appeared on the lists of the world s most beautiful women.

Jai s liberating influence, combined with Gayatri Devi s own strong character, took her well beyond the traditionally limited activities of a Maharani. This is an intimate look at the extraordinary life of one of the world s most fascinating women and an informal history of the princely states of India, from the height of the princes power to their present state of de-recognition.

Killing me Softly

|Following the success of The Memory Game, Killing Me Softly is Nicci French s third novel--a genuinely compelling, often compulsive, study of love and violence. French is prepared to risk romantic fantasy: the chance encounter with a beautiful man in the street:--"He was wearing black jeans and a black leather jacket, and then I looked up at his face"- -who draws Alice, the narrator, away from her lover and her life. " ‘Please ," he said then, still not taking his eyes off my face. ‘Will you come with me? " Adam Tallis is a hero: a sexual hero, certainly, but also a man--a climber--who has saved lives. Or has he? Told in continuous flashback, we know from the start of this novel that something has gone wrong, but what, why and who will remain in question. Adam is a seducer--a dangerous one--and French uses him to explore the devastation of requited love (what happens to a modern woman if she does marry an ideal?). But just how dangerous he is, who is threatened most by this passion, is part of the puzzle and intelligence of this book, right up to, and beyond, its remarkable conclusion.-- Vicky Lebeau --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.|

|Hodvábnik v originále.|
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine s disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him. And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before... A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant Robin Ellacott.

Cat and Mouse
Penguin Books 1970
Cena: 0.90 €

|To compensate for his unusually large Adam’s apple—source of both discomfort and distress—fourteen year old Joachim Mahlke turns himself into athlete and ace diver. Soon he is known to his peers and his nation as “The Great Mahlke”. But to his enemies, he remains a target. He is different and doomed in a country scarred by the war.|
Cat and Mouse was first published in 1961, two years after Gunter Grass’ controversial and applauded masterpiece, The Tin Drum. Once again Grass turns his attention on Danzig. With a subtle blend of humour and power, Cat and Mouse ostensibly relates the rise of Mahlke from clown to hero. But Mahlke’s outlandish antics hide the darkness at the heart of a nation torn by Nazi violence, the war and its aftermath.

|She has only seen the world through maps. She had no idea they were so dangerous.|
Boston, 1891. Sophia Tims comes from a family of explorers and cartologers who, for generations, have been traveling and mapping the New World—a world changed by the Great Disruption of 1799, when all the continents were flung into different time periods. Eight years ago, her parents left her with her uncle Shadrack, the foremost cartologer in Boston, and went on an urgent mission. They never returned. Life with her brilliant, absent-minded, adored uncle has taught Sophia to take care of herself.
Then Shadrack is kidnapped. And Sophia, who has rarely been outside of Boston, is the only one who can search for him. Together with Theo, a refugee from the West, she travels over rough terrain and uncharted ocean, encounters pirates and traders, and relies on a combination of Shadrack’s maps, common sense, and her own slantwise powers of observation. But even as Sophia and Theo try to save Shadrack’s life, they are in danger of losing their own.
The Glass Sentence plunges readers into a time and place they will not want to leave, and introduces them to a heroine and hero they will take to their hearts. It is a remarkable debut.
