MailOnline: ‘The Capture of Cerberus’ Agatha Christie Poirot mystery unseen for 60 years…

Cannot WAIT for it to be published this side of the pond!!! May have to order now from AbeBooks!

secretnotebooks

MailOnline:

…Why is this such a genuinely exciting find? Partly because the story is so unusual for her. It is one of her rare excursions into making direct political comment, which is why it was never published.

The Capture Of Cerberus (she wrote a completely different short story with the same title in 1947) revolves around a dictator called August Hertzlein, who is clearly Adolf Hitler…

Excerpt:

Hercule Poirot sipped his apéritif and looked out across the Lake of Geneva. He sighed. He had spent his morning talking to certain diplomatic personages, all in a state of high agitation, and he was tired. For he had been unable to offer them any comfort in their difficulties.

The world was in a very disturbed state – every nation alert and tense. At any minute the blow might fall – and once more be plunged into war.

Hercule Poirot sighed. He remembered 1914 only too well. He had no illusions about war. It settled nothing. The peace it brought in its wake was usually only the peace of exhaustion – not a constructive peace.

TOTUS, voting Present since 1995

Voting present since 1995 or whatever year he took an office..here is the FOX panel discussing what TOTUS needs to do in Wednesday’s speech.

Based on all the president’s  spinmeisters appearances today and the latest journOlist ledes, it would seem TOTUS will CONTINUE to vote present on a public option in his latest ‘biggest speech evah’ this Wednesday, sounding like he is for it, but not backing away from Olympia Snowe’s pet triggers…IOW he won’t lay a veto on the line and take a stand either way, leadership? Where is the passion? OPAQUE they name is TOTUS …

While Gibby is tossing the public option unda da bus, TOTUS ‘official speak’ is he is gonna be Tuff but not on his neoprog libs according to Politico, they said WE DON’T TRIANGULATE IN THIS WH, IOW he will not go moderate which is how he ran..lines in the sand huh? step over it baby, don’t let this TOTUS take our economy off a cliff!….

…2) He will not confront or scold the left. “This is a case for bold action, not a stick in the eye to our supporters,” said an official involved in speech preparation. “That’s not how President Obama thinks. The politics of triangulation don’t live in this White House.”..

Face it neo progs your guy is voting PRESENT…

Diana on the upcoming graphic art release of a new Outlander story with some previews of the artwork and on meeting the real (and towering, lol) Scots of Clans MacKenzie and Fraser..

On the inspiration for the storyline-and the role an old episode of Dr Who played!

The latest in the INCREDIBLE series ‘An Echo in the Bone’ will be released September 22nd!

800+ pages of Gabaldon awesomeness available September 22nd!

800+ pages of Gabaldon awesomeness available September 22nd!

Amazon:

With stunning cameos of historical characters from Benedict Arnold to Benjamin Franklin, An Echo in the Bone is a soaring masterpiece of imagination, insight, character, and adventure–a novel that echoes in the mind long after the last page is turned.

Product Description
Diana Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in An Echo in the Bone, the enormously anticipated seventh volume, Gabaldon continues the extraordinary story of the eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.

Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and he’d rather die than have to face his illegitimate son–a young lieutenant in the British army–across the barrel of a gun.

Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price won’t include Jamie’s life or his happiness, though–not if she has anything to say about it.

Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Brianna’s parents’ story comes to life through Claire’s letters. The fragile pages reveal Claire’s love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battles–as Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claire’s fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonial America.

Update: Glenn Beck 1 – TOTUS 0…

Update: THE most important point from MM:

…The story is not just about Jones.

The story is about Adolfo Carrion, Carol Browner, Vivek Kundra, Nancy DeParle, John Holdren, Cass Sunstein, Mark Lloyd, Obama’s education comrades, and the culture of circumvention and corruption that plagues this White House.

The story is the czar explosion, purposeful undermining of congressional oversight, Valerie Jarrett’s promotion of a two-bit Jeremiah Wright in eco-guru’s clothing, and the public vetting of unaccountable Obama appointees that Washington won’t do.

They don’t get it. They’re in the tank. Behind the curve. And slouching towards irrelevance….

Shout out to GatewayPundit without whom actual investigative reporting would never have been done!
