No one, except Durango.
Mars stinks.
IThe air reeks of burning fuel; the rivers and lakes seethe with sulfur. In the shadows, evil men plot terror and beasts hunt the innocent. Out on the barren crags of the terraformed planet, there is nowhere to hide. No one to heed a call for help.

Meet Tessa, a beautiful California red fox, and share a modern fable in praise of industry.
While her brothers and sisters learn to stalk, chase, and pounce-Tessa lies half asleep under a blackberry bush, waiting for lunch to be served.
Then one day, big brother Rex decides it is time Tessa started hunting for herself. "You can't be a lazy fox forever," he tells her.
Tessa doesn't like to be told what to do. So with her bright tail dragging in the dust, she strikes off to live on her own. Tessa soon discovers, however, that the life of a scavenger is not easy. And when she has to spend a scary night in a smelly garbage dumpster, she decides she is better off doing what foxes do naturally-hunting for dinner.
Tessa's tale takes place in the Ojai Valley of southern California's coastal mountains. From the rough chaparral of the Topa Topa bluffs to the wildflower fields and orange groves of the valley below, illustrator Itoko Maeno has recreated the beauty of one of California's most scenic locations.
And in addition to her perfect depictions of the elusive red fox, she has rendered a charming supporting cast of wildlife-playful field mice, a bossy California quail, a gruff mule deer, an unfriendly coyote, and a bandit raccoon with her laughing pups.

Free until 5 April 2013

Just asking, but after sleeping with a literary agent, shouldn't you receive more than a form rejection letter?
It might also have helped to know that this want-to-be writer is bi-polar.
However, she is not the one to be feared most by this agent. For her anger and zest in destroying his career has created a copycat, a serial killer with a new target--literary agents.
When a serial killer stalks literary agents, and brutally
kills them, the world of publishing panics with fear as the FBI hunts for the cold blooded killer, wondering what could cause a person to become such a monster?
To someone else, the rejection letter might be perceived as
a simple piece of correspondence. But when Amy, who suffers from bipolar disorder receives a form rejection letter from Edward, an agent she had an affair with at a recent convention, she takes the rejection as both personal and professional--in short--a declaration of war.
Amy quickly embarks on a plan to get revenge by destroying Edward's literary agency, but Amy is soon not the one to be feared the most.
Her actions create a copycat, a serial killer, who targets literary agents and viciously murders them.
Living with the knowledge she has created a monster, a serial killer, is one thing, while doing nothing to stop the madness is another. But how could she track down a killer when she has no training in such? Thinking like a mad man might be the only way--but could she go there and survive herself? When the winds of fate, however, rekindle the romance with Edward, thus making him the next target--she really has no choice but to help the FBI before it is too late.

In 1947 a Santiago-bound plane crashes into the Andes minutes after confirming its landing time.
In 2003 a passenger plane nosedives into the Bavarian National Forest during a routine flight.
Although separated by more than 50 years, these tragedies are linked by seven letters:
S, T, E, N, D, E, C.
On board Flight DFU323 in 2003 is Saskia Brandt - a woman who holds the answers to the many puzzles of the two flights and who knows she must survive in order to prevent a catastrophic chain of events stretching well into the future.
But Saskia is not the only one to know this. She is being followed and her life is in danger - inside and outside of the plane.
Filled with twists and turns as it trips skilfully through time, Flashback is a gripping technothriller that reaches more than fifty years into our past - and one hundred years into our future - to solve the enigmas of the doomed Star Dust and Flight DFU323.
But is it enough to solve the enigma that is Saskia Brandt?
