Le commissaire Madec, patron d’une des brigades du légendaire « 36, Quai des Orfèvres », s’apprête à coffrer en flagrant délit un important groupe de dealers en banlieue parisienne. Mais l’arrestation tourne mal avec la grave blessure d'un policier municipal et surtout la mort de l’un des bandits. Une étrange bavure à l’origine d’émeutes dans les quartiers chauds de la ville. La hiérarchie administrative du « 36 » met en avant la responsabilité de Madec, considéré comme un flic réactionnaire et dépassé. Le commandant Le Coz, anti portrait du commissaire, est donc chargé par le syndicat d’organiser la défense de son collègue. Au milieu des complots, manipulations et intérêts politiques qui compliquent l'affaire, Le Coz va mener l'enquête sur les origines complexes du drame, dans « une banlieue rouge » meurtrie...

Voilà donc une illustration de l’art de faire des mathématiques : jouer avec des motifs, remarquer des tendances, imaginer des conjectures, chercher des exemples et des contre-exemples, être inspiré pour inventer et explorer, fabriquer des arguments et les analyser, et soulever de nouvelles questions. C’est tout cela à la fois. Je ne dis pas que c’est vital, car ce ne l’est pas. Je ne dis pas que cela va guérir le cancer, car ce n’est pas le cas. Je dis juste que c’est amusant et que cela m’apporte du plaisir. De plus, c’est complètement inoffensif. Quelles sont les activités humaines dont on pourrait en dire autant ? Dans cet essai, Paul Lockhart se désespère de la manière dont les mathématiques sont enseignées dans nos écoles et vues par le grand public. Les mathématiques sont un art, un acte créatif, et nul ne devrait être privé de leur beauté. Livre illustré de 136 pages - Illustrations de Jérôme Poloczek.

WANTED: One Lunar Witch, preferably naïve. This collection includes the first three novels in the thrilling Urban Fantasy series MIST RIDERS. LUNA (Book 1) Being born a witch has always been just a detail from my past, you know, like summer camp, or the time Timmy ate a bug, but now, thanks to one very pushy Immortal, a handful of mutant shifters, a psycho named Chaos and a nice guy (I think) named Emmet, my magic’s become a real pain in my ass. San Diego was a totally chill choice for college, until this whole moon-cycle madness was thrown in my lap (more like shoved in my face) and now I’m bumbling with basic spells, crash studying to go from zero to fierce in a matter of days. Only problem with this test is that it’s graded pass/fail where failure is death. I wouldn’t wish magic on anyone. It attracts all the wrong entities, the kind you can’t run from, the kind who always find you, the kind who know your dark secrets even before you do. WINTER (Book 2) When her ex-boyfriend goes missing, Luna will stop at nothing to find him—even if it means teaming with a Shadow Warrior, something she vowed never to do again. Desperate to know the truth, she must conspire with friend and foe alike to uncover a scheme that threatens not just the life of her ex-boyfriend, but promises to unleash Horror, a being so cataclysmic that all life as we know it hangs in the balance. From the Deep Down to the Sacred Vault and in every dark place between, Luna Mae goes on her wildest adventure yet, traveling farther than she ever thought she could, seeking out a lost friend while trying not to lose herself along the way. SILVER DUST (Book 3) When she returns home for Easter break to spend time with Gram, the mystery of her past draws Luna to an eccentric seer who reveals a secret that spins her life out of control. Before she can get answers from the Lord of the Demon Hounds, a series of attacks with a deadly silver dust threaten the lives of all magic kind including those she holds dearest. Battling through her darkest journeys yet, enduring clashes with Winter, Chaos, the Lord of the Soul Swallowers, an aggressive alpha shifter and the entire magic world, Luna realizes she has no choice but to make the ultimate sacrifice. urban fantasy, witch, immortals, shapeshifters, werewolf, new adult, coming of age, paranormal, fantasy series, witches, paranormal elements, fantasy adventure, paranormal fantasy, contemporary fantasy, new release, coming of age fantasy romance, new adult fantasy, strong heroine, supernatural mystery, supernatural suspense, mist riders, winter, chaos, silver dust, luna

When the Walls Fell (Book #2) Professor Simon Cross and his assistant Elizabeth West have returned from their accidental journey into the past and are adjusting to their new life together as a couple. But an unwanted visit from the Council for Temporal Studies could change everything. A murder in the past is changing the future, and if the killing isn't stopped, Simon Cross might never be born. When they arrive in 1906 San Francisco, Elizabeth and Simon have no idea who wants Victor Graham dead or how it will happen. With the earthquake that leveled most of the city just days away, the race to save Graham thrusts them into a complex mystery of jealousy and revenge where murder might be the least of their worries.

They find Evan in 1942 London, ill and not quite sure what's happened. He remembers only one thing with crystal clarity -- the whereabouts of an artifact Hitler believes can win the war. That's information every Nazi spy in the country would kill to know. As if saving Evan and surviving war-torn England weren't enough, the outcome of the war hinges on Simon and Elizabeth finding Evan's artifact before the Nazis do. But time is running out: for them, for London, for the world.
