The Last Crypt
Author: Fernando Gamboa, Christy Cox, Carmen Grau
Diver Ulysses Vidal finds a fourteenth-century bronze bell of Templar origin buried under a reef off the Honduras coast. It turns out it's been lying there for more than one century, prior to Christopher Columbus's discovery of America. Driven by curiosity and a sense of adventure, he begins the search for the legendary treasure of the Order of The Temple. Together with a medieval history professor and a daring Mexican archeologist they travel through Spain, the Mali desert, the Caribbean Sea and the Mexican jungle. They face innumerable riddles and dangers, but in the end this search will uncover a much more important mystery. A secret, kept hidden for centuries, which could transform the history of humankind, and the way we understand the Universe.
An adaptation of the nineteenth-century science fiction tale of an electric submarine, its eccentric captain, and the undersea world, which anticipated many of the scientific achievements of the twentieth century.
The Silent Wife
Author: A. S. A. Harrison
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman, fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl will love The Silent Wife "I gobbled it down in one sitting." – Anne Lamott, People Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds. She likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps. She has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of Gone Girl and These Things Hidden, The Silent Wife ensnares the reader from page one and does not let go.

Science Teaching argues that science teaching and science teacher education can be improved if teachers know something of the history and philosophy of science and if these topics are included in the science curriculum. The history and philosophy of science have important roles in many of the theoretical issues that science educators need to address: what constitutes an appropriate science curriculum for all students; how science should be taught in traditional cultures; how scientific literacy can be promoted; and the conflict which can occur between science curriculum and deep-seated religious or cultural values and knowledge. Outlining the history of liberal approaches to the teaching of science, Michael Matthews elaborates contemporary curriculum developments that explicitly address questions about the nature and the history of science. He provides examples of classroom teaching and develops useful arguments on constructivism, multicultural science education and teacher education.

Durante el reinado de Felipe II, la Inquisici�n se lanza con denuedo y aut�ntica obsesi�n a controlar la sociedad espa�ola. Nadie est� libre de sospecha. Don Rodrigo de Castro es un inquisidor implacable, ambicioso y cauto, que se ha consagrado concienzudamente a realizar pesquisas sobre aquellas mujeres que caen en �xtasis o tienen visiones y misteriosas revelaciones, por si fueran "alumbradas", es decir, adeptas a la secta m�stica que tanto preocupa al Santo Oficio, que la considera her�tica y relacionada con el protestantismo. Y para hacer las averiguaciones pertinentes, De Castro ha nombrado a dos comisarios, un fraile dominico y un caballero de la Orden de Alc�ntara, con atribuciones especiales y secretas. En medio de todo eso, una mujer se afana por unir lo presente y lo eterno; separar la verdad de la apariencia y vivir una fe aut�ntica y una espiritualidad pura: Teresa de Jes�s, la figura m�s grande y universal de la Espa�a del XVI, que no obstante su fina intuici�n, su magistral escritura y su virtud probada, fue acosada por los inquisidores, algo que se ocult� en los siglos subsiguientes y que hoy, por fin, es sacado a la luz. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION During the reign of Philip II, the Inquisition tries boldly to control Spanish society. No one is above suspicion. Don Rodrigo de Castro is a ruthless, ambitious, and cautious Inquisitor who has appointed two commissioners with special and secret powers.
