When his cover is blown, former Berlin bull and unwilling SS officer Bernie Gunther must re-enter a cat-and-mouse game that continues to shadow his life a decade after Germany's defeat in World War 2... The French Riviera, 1956: Bernie's old and dangerous adversary Erich Mielke, deputy head of the East German Stasi, has turned up in Nice--and he's not on holiday. Mielke is calling in a debt and wants Bernie to travel to London to poison a female agent they've both had dealings with. But Bernie isn't keen on assassinating anyone. In an attempt to dodge his Stasi handler--former Kripo comrade Friedrich Korsch--Bernie bolts for the German border. Traveling by night and hiding by day, he has plenty of time to recall the last case he and Korsch worked together... Obersalzberg, Germany, 1939: A low-level bureaucrat has been found dead at Hitler's mountaintop retreat in Bavaria. Bernie and Korsch have one week to find the killer before the leader of the Third Reich arrives to celebrate his fiftieth birthday. Bernie knows it would mean disaster if Hitler discovers a shocking murder has been committed on the terrace of his own home. But Obersalzberg is also home to an elite Nazi community, meaning an even bigger disaster for Bernie if his investigation takes aim at one of the party's higher-ups... 1939 and 1956: two different eras about to converge in an explosion Bernie Gunther will never forget.

'Listen, Michael. This is serious. This is your best chance to help me ...us. If you waste this, it's all over.' 'What's all over?' 'Everything. Between us.' 'Naina?' 'Five minutes, that's all you have. I kid you not.' First-year student Naina is utterly smitten by her senior, Michael, acknowledged genius and resident rebel of the Fine Arts College, Mumbai. So when he proposes that they drop out of college and live-in, she readily agrees. But life with Michael soon turns into an emotional rollercoaster. Temperamental, opinionated and incredibly selfish, he expects Naina to run the household so that he is free to paint. Naina tries her hand at several odd jobs, but when an accident leaves Michael blind, their life together begins to come undone as she can only helplessly watch. And in trying to pull it together, Naina is driven to being what she has never been-a liar and a cheat. Will Michael forgive her when he learns the truth? Will she forgive him for what he has done to her?

North Korea continues to taunt the United States by detonating nuclear weapons and launching long-range missiles across the Pacific. This threat is suddenly overshadowed by the destruction of the US fleet by a group of highly coordinated Islamic terrorists as it sails through the Straits of Hormuz and into the Persian Gulf. As the crisis escalates, little attention is paid to several blue, bloated and grossly disfigured Asian sailors who wash ashore in Galveston, Texas. Likewise, the North Korean cargo ship Seoul' is able to slip into Whiskey Bay, Louisiana unnoticed, where she offloads her cargo: highly radioactive weapons of mass destruction. As more Asian sailors become deathly ill from the many weeks spent at sea in close proximity to their lethal cargo, they are transferred to a small hospital in Carencrow, Louisiana for treatment. Dr. Rex Bent, an emergency room physician, immediately becomes suspicious and notifies the proper authorities. With their coup de grâce in jeopardy the extremists realize that not only Dr. Bent but also his wife and confidante, Sharon, must be eliminated without raising suspicion. Pursued and hounded like traitors who had betrayed their country, the Bents are in a race against time, determined to discover the significance of Prussian Blue'.

There are insufficient achievements in the field of cancer diagnosis and treatment for new dual agents, which would provide health care specialists the ability to simultaneously image patients' cancerous tissues as well as treat the diseases. Prussian blue (ferric hexacyanoferrate) is a nontoxic FDA approved compound used clinically as an antidote for thallium and radioactive cesium poisoning. In this thesis development of simple methods for the synthesis of biocompatible Prussian blue nanoparticles (PBNPs) and its analogues as well as their applications for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents and drug delivery have been studied. The extensive magnetic properties investigations show that Prussian blue nanoparticles and gadolinium doped analogue nanoparticles significantly shorten the T1 relaxation time in aqueous solution and in HeLa cells treated with PBNPs, demonstrating their potential use as MRI contrast agents. Although the relaxivity values of Prussian blue nanoparticles are approximately an order of magnitude lower than the typical commercial Gd3+-based T1 contrast agents but it is found to be comparable to the values obtained for the MnO nanoparticles-based T1 agents. In order to provide high contrast, gadolinium doped Prussian blue nanoparticles (Gd-PBNPs) were prepared. It was also found that the Gd-PBNPs can shorten the T1 relaxation time significantly and provide potential use for clinical applications. In order for Prussian blue and its analogues nanoparticles to be concurrently utilized as drug delivery agents they must be biocompatible and capable of crossing the plasma membrane. Therefore, Prussian blue nanoparticles and related analogues were synthesized and functionalized by carboxylic acids such as citric acid as capping agents to control size distribution. To study the intracellular uptake of Prussian blue and analogue nanoparticles, their surfaces were functionalized separately with the small molecule dyes such as 5-carboxyfluorescein and Alexa Fluor® 350 cadaverine, as well as the anticancer agent. Confocal fluorescence imaging of HeLa cells treated with the functionalized nanoparticles shows fluorescent signals in the cells suggesting intracellular uptake of the Prussian blue and Gd-PB nanoparticles. The HeLa cells internalized Prussian blue nanoparticles and gadolinium-containing Prussian blue nanoparticles could also enhance the T1 MRI contrast. The results clearly show that these nanoparticles can be used as an effective T1 contrast agent for cellular imaging. Functionalized Prussian blue nanoparticles and related analogues with both MRI contrast and drug delivery capabilities may become powerful dual agents for simultaneous cancer treatment and assessment of treatment effectiveness.

From New York Times–bestselling author Philip Kerr, the much anticipated return of Bernie Gunther in a series hailed by The Daily Beast as “the best crime novels around today.” Once I’d been a good detective in Kripo, but that was a while ago, before the criminals wore smart gray uniforms and nearly everyone locked up was innocent.” Being a Berlin cop in 1942 was a little like putting down mousetraps in a cage full of tigers. The war is over. Bernie Gunther, our sardonic former Berlin homicide detective and unwilling SS officer, is now living on the French Riviera. It is 1956 and Bernie is the go-to guy at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, the man you turn to for touring tips or if you need a fourth for bridge. As it happens, a local writer needs just that, someone to fill the fourth seat in a regular game that is the usual evening diversion at the Villa Mauresque. Not just any writer. Perhaps the richest and most famous living writer in the world: W. Somerset Maugham. And it turns out it is not just a bridge partner that he needs; it’s some professional advice. Maugham is being blackmailed—perhaps because of his unorthodox lifestyle. Or perhaps because of something in his past, because once upon a time, Maugham worked for the British secret service, and the people now blackmailing him are spies. As Gunther fans know, all roads lead back to the viper’s nest that was Hitler’s Third Reich and to the killing fields that spread like a disease across Europe. Even in 1956, peace has not come to the continent: now the Soviets have the H-bomb and spies from every major power feel free to make all of Europe their personal playground. From the Hardcover edition.
