Now an HBO series: the first volume in the New York Times-bestselling “enduring masterpiece” about a lifelong friendship between two women from Naples (The Atlantic).

Beginning in the 1950s in a poor but vibrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples, Elena Ferrante’s four-volume story spans almost sixty years, as its main characters, the fiery and unforgettable Lila and the bookish narrator, Elena, become women, wives, mothers, and leaders, all the while maintaining a complex and at times conflicted friendship. This first novel in the series follows Lila and Elena from their fateful meeting as ten-year-olds through their school years and adolescence.

Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighborhood, a city, and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between two women.

“An intoxicatingly furious portrait of enmeshed friends.” –Entertainment Weekly

“Spectacular.” –Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s Fresh Air

  • A Time for Mercy : John Grisham’s Latest No. 1 Bestseller (Papercover)

     

    Jake Brigance, lawyer hero of A Time to Kill and Sycamore Row, is back, in his toughest case ever.

    ‘A new Grisham legal thriller is always an event, but this one is exceptional as the author is returning to Jake Brigance, the hero of his very first book, A Time To Kill . . . There is a lot of Grisham in Brigance – they were both street lawyers on the side of the people, not big corporations. It gives the book an emotional core that burns with a white heat’ – Daily Mail

    ‘A master of plotting and pacing . . . suspenseful’ – New York Times

    CAN A KILLER EVER BE ABOVE THE LAW?

    Deputy Stuart Kofer is a protected man. Though he’s turned his drunken rages on his girlfriend, Josie, and her children many times before, the police code of silence has always shielded him.

    But one night he goes too far, leaving Josie for dead on the floor before passing out. Her son, sixteen-year-old Drew, knows he only has this one chance to save them. He picks up a gun and takes the law into his own hands.

    In Clanton, Mississippi, there is no one more hated than a cop killer – but a cop killer’s defence lawyer comes close. Jake Brigance doesn’t want this impossible case but he’s the only one with enough experience to defend the boy.

    As the trial begins, it seems there is only one outcome: the gas chamber for Drew. But, as the town of Clanton discovers once again, when Jake Brigance takes on an impossible case, anything is possible …

    Starring the same hero and setting that featured in John Grisham’s multi-million-selling bestsellers A Time to Kill (adapted as a film starring Samuel L. Jackson and Matthew McConaughey) and Sycamore Row, A Time for Mercy is an unforgettable thriller you won’t be able to put down.

    ‘When Grisham gets in the courtroom he lets rip, drawing scenes so real they’re not just alive, they’re pulsating’ Mirror

    ‘A superb, instinctive storyteller’ The Times

    ‘Storytelling genius … he is in a league of his own’ Daily Record

  • Ultimate Hacking Challenge: Train on dedicated machines to master the art of hacking Paperback – 3 June 2017

    This is not your regular hacking book. Hell, some might say it is not even a book. This is a training program that gives you a free coupon to access dedicated and real machines with real flaws for 24 hours straight. Reading about hacking is fun, hacking real systems is a whole other level of awesomeness! This program is an opportunity to hone your skills on the training platform at www.hacklikeapornstar.com/training: no simulation, no regex based wargames, no far-fetched hacking-like tricks that only work in CTF games… You get a free coupon to access real machines with real and common flaws. The kind of vulnerabilities you find in every corporate environment around the world: -Bypassing application whitelisting -Privilege escalation -Pivoting on other machines It’s up to you to exploit them in a meaningful way without screwing up the system. I strongly encourage you to take on the training, struggle with the challenge on your own for a few minutes before reading the chapter describing the solution. Try your usual techniques, read about new ones, and have fun. If you are looking for a passive read about hacking, there are other interesting (and more comprehensive) books to try (preferably mine). This piece of work is about concrete action! This is, in my opinion, the best way to fully internalize the concepts and reflexes that make a great hacker. In case you are discovering the world of hacking/pentesting, I planted several links to resources explaining the different concepts we are dealing with.
