From New York Times best-selling author and "grand master of the game" (The Providence Journal) J. A. Jance, an electrifying new thriller featuring Ali Reynolds.  After taking down the man responsible for his best friend's death, Stuart Ramey thinks the case is finally closed. That is, until Stu finds himself left with a multimillion-dollar fortune in Bitcoin in a desperate bid by Frigg, a rogue AI program created by the killer, to keep itself from being fully deactivated.  To sort out his situation and take Frigg down for good, Stu enlists the help of Ali Reynolds and the rest of his cyber-security colleagues at High Noon Enterprises. But they are not the only ones who know about Frigg's existence.  Graciella Miramar, an unassuming accountant to all appearances, is actually the right-hand woman to El Pescado, the leader of a dangerous drug cartel. She'll do anything to get her hands on that program. With Frigg's help, Graciella hopes to take over her father's criminal underworld and become wealthy beyond her wildest dreams. But Stu - and El Pescado and his henchmen - may not be so easily defeated.  Written in J. A. Jance's classic "take-no-prisoners" style (Kirkus Reviews), in this thriller, Stu, Ali, and their team will come to realize that everything has its price.  1. Language: English.

Based on the series produced for the BBC World Service) A Financial Times and Bloomberg Business Week Book of the Year) Who thought up paper money? How did the contraceptive pill change the face of the legal profession? Why was the horse collar as important for human progress as the steam engine? How did the humble spreadsheet turn the world of finance upside down? The world economy defies comprehension. A continuously changing system of immense complexity, it offers over 10 billion distinct products and services, doubles in size every 15 years, and links almost every one of the planet's seven billion people. It delivers astonishing luxury to hundreds of millions. It also leaves hundreds of millions behind, puts tremendous strains on the ecosystem, and has an alarming habit of stalling. Nobody is in charge of it. Indeed, no individual understands more than a fraction of what's going on. How can we make sense of this bewildering system on which our lives depend? From the tally stick to Bitcoin, the canal lock to the jumbo jet, each invention in Tim Harford's fascinating new book has its own curious, surprising and memorable story, a vignette against a grand backdrop. Step by step, listeners will start to understand where we are, how we got here and where we might be going next. Hidden connections will be laid bare: how the barcode undermined family corner shops; why the gramophone widened inequality; how barbed wire shaped America. We'll meet the characters who developed some of these inventions, profited from them or were ruined by them. We'll trace the economic principles that help to explain their transformative effects. And we'll ask what lessons we can learn to make wise use of future inventions in a world where the pace of innovation will only accelerate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roger Davis.

La blockchain, surtout connu comme la technologie de base derrière le Bitcoin, est l'une des plus chaudes et des plus intrigantes technologies actuellement sur le marché, mais de quoi s'agit-il exactement - et il peut vous aider en quelque sorte? Simplement mis, la blockchain est l'équivalent numérique d'un grand livre du banquier, un qui enregistre et sécurise les transactions entre deux parties. Situé dans le cyberespace, ce type de programmation permet le transfert non seulement des données, mais de valeur - ce qui le rend un élément unique et fondamental de notre avenir émergent. La technologie de la blockchain a été développée en 2009 pour permettre aux individus et aux organisations de traiter les transactions sans avoir besoin d'une banque centrale ou d'un autre intermédiaire, en utilisant des algorithmes complexes et des consensus pour vérifier les transactions. Maintenant, elle a été adoptée et modifiée par les entreprises et les startups dans le monde entier, et est examinée de près par les banques mondiales comme la prochaine étape logique dans la finance numérique. Ce livre explique la Blockchain en totalité; son histoire, usages, potentiel, inconvénients, et même son avenir. Comprendre ce précieux système ouvert est essentiel pour créer la liberté financière dont vous rêvez. La monnaie numérique n'est plus une chimère du joueur de sous-sol, c'est réel, c'est là, et vous avez besoin de comprendre comment elle se déplace et est sécurisée afin de planifier un avenir qui verra une révolution dans notre système bancaire actuel.
