LuAnn Tyler is a single parent striving to escape a life of endless poverty. Then a mysterious Mr Jackson makes her an offer he thinks no one can refuse: a guarantee to be the winner of the $100 million lottery. But LuAnn won't do it. Less than 24 hours later, she is fighting for her life and running from a false murder charge. Jackson's offer - and its condition that she leave the country forever - seems her only hope. Ten years later LuAnn secretly returns to the United States to begin a new life with Matthew Riggs, a man whose origins are as murky as her own. But a canny reporter has picked up her trail, as have the FBI - and Jackson. Matt Riggs is the only person who can help her. But is help what Matt intends, or is he, too, closing in for the kill? Suspense-filled roller-coaster action from one of the world's master storytellers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frances Cassidy.

A cyberattack on an obscure US dam leaves thousands dead and the government wondering who attacked it, and why. When they realize it is just the tip of the iceberg - and that the safety of all of America is at stake - the president has no choice but to call in Luke Stone. Head of an elite, disbanded FBI team, Luke does not want the job. But with new enemies - foreign and domestic - closing in on her from all sides, the president can only trust him. What follows is an action-packed international roller-coaster, as Luke learns that the terrorists are more sophisticated than anyone realizes, that the target is more extensive than anyone could image - and that there is very little time left to save America.

What was once in every child's dream is now just an echo in the wind of a past gone by. Horror Island Amusement Park had the largest Ferrous Wheel, biggest roller coaster, and a beautiful view of the ocean. As many years, weather, lack of funding and dwindling attendance, the amusement park was shut down and boarded up. But that wasn't the only reason for the decrease in attendance and the closing of the park. Reports of poor maintenance on the rides were the cause of many deaths and the major cause of shutting down the amusement park. Thirty years later, there were reports of strange things going on at the abandoned amusement park. At night the rides started up on their own and the funny thing was, is that the park has been out of operation for over thirty years without any power. The police were called out to the park many times to investigate, but when they located the power supply all the wires were ripped out of the fuse boxes. The police also reported hearing laughter and voices as though the amusement park was still in full operation. A sign was put on the front gate of the amusement park which read "No trespassing! Any violators will be prosecuted." A local ghost hunting group decided they would try and solve the strange goings on at the abandoned amusement park. 1. Language: English.

The final book in the New York Times best-selling House of Secrets series, which was called "a breakneck, jam-packed roller coaster of an adventure" by J. K. Rowling. Created by Hollywood director Chris Columbus (of Harry Potter fame) and best-selling author Ned Vizzini (It's Kind of a Funny Story), with the acclaimed author of the Codename Zero series and the Fourth Stall saga, Chris Rylander. With their last adventure just barely over, the Walker kids thought life would finally go back to normal. But things don't remain calm for long...especially when the colossus Fat Jagger turns up in San Francisco Bay - and he's in danger! With the police closing in, the Walkers must figure out how to save their giant friend. When a frost beast is spotted in Santa Rosa - and more mystical creatures start appearing all over America - it's soon clear that the characters from Denver Kristoff's works are invading the real world. It's up to Brendan, Eleanor, and Cordelia to reenter the book world one last time to keep the worlds from colliding, causing mass destruction. They will have to track down three Worldkeepers hidden in Kristoff's books - magical items that, when used together, will seal the worlds off for good. But the Walkers' first move leads them straight into the Wild West, with lethal outlaws and lawless deputies - and that's just the beginning. They'll encounter dinosaurs, aliens, killer robots, and the Wind Witch herself, with new friends and old, and be faced with some of the deadliest choices they'll ever have to make. The scariest thing of all could be deciding who to trust, since everyone is hiding something.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Vincent Gordh.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. SportsWorks (or as it will be known, Highmark SportsWorks) was one of the major, consistent exhibits of the Carnegie Science Center located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was the largest science and sports exhibition in the world, with over 40 exhibits and 60+ interactive experiences in which visitors can participate. It included seven large, staff-manned exhibits: Bounce, Orbitron, High Cycle, Roller Coaster Simulator, F-18 Flight Simulator, Rock Wall, and Olympic Sprint, which, due to the closing of UPMC SportsWorks in August 2008, have since been moved over to the main Carnegie Science Center.
Die Lohnerroller prägten zu Anfang der Fünfzigerjahre schon bald das österreichische Straßenbild. Nach den Modellen L 98 und L 98 T, dem L 200, dem L 125 u. a. hatte Lohner mit dem Mopedroller "Sissy" eine völlig neue Fahrzeugkategorie geschaffen, nämlich die des soziustauglichen Mopeds für Jung und Alt. Ende der "Wilden Fünfzigerjahre" hatten die Sissys das Straßenbild in der österreichischen Verkehrslandschaft erobert. Die Mitt-Sechzigerjahre brachten das Ende der Zweiradwelle mit sich. So kam auch bei Lohner das "Aus" für die Zweiradfertigung. 1966 rollte der letzte Roller aus der Fabrik in Wien-Floridsdorf. Über die Tochtergesellschaft Rotax kam es zu einer Geschäftsverbindung mit Bombardier und einer Lizenzfertigung des Ski-Doos in Wien. Für Lohner kam am 20. Jänner 1970 das Ende der rund 150-jährigen, von ungeahnten kommerziellen Höhen und technischen Pionierleistungen sowie nahezu ruinösen Durststrecken gezeichneten Firmengeschichte.
