"I don't realize I'm crying until he glances at me. For a moment, I see the look of anguish in his eyes, then he blinks it away and slips off into the water. I immediately think of the gator. It's still down there somewhere. . . ." A science-class field trip to the Everglades is supposed to be fun, but Sarah's new at Glades Academy, and her fellow freshmen aren’t exactly making her feel welcome. When an opportunity for an unauthorized side trip on an air boat presents itself, it seems like a perfect escape—an afternoon without feeling like a sore thumb. But one simple oversight turns a joyride into a race for survival across the river of grass. Sarah will have to count on her instincts—and a guy she barely knows—if they have any hope of making it back alive.

The sequel to his extraordinary Old Man's War, John Scalzi's The Ghost Brigades is the second in The Old Man's War series. Who can you trust, if you can't trust yourself? Three hostile alien races have united against humanity, determined to halt our expansion into space. The mastermind behind this lethal alliance is a traitor - Charles Boutin. He was a Colonial Defence Force scientist, with access to their biggest military secrets. Now the CDF's only hope is to discover Boutin's plan. Trouble is, Boutin's dead. As a super-soldier created from Boutin's own DNA, Jared Dirac may have answers. However, when Dirac fails to access the scientist's memories, he's transferred to the Ghost Brigades for training. These elite troops are also cloned from the dead, so he might fit in. But will Dirac's memory return as the enemy plots the fate of humankind? And whose side is Dirac really on?

While the upper renal tract remains the sole preserve of the urologist, gynaecologists have traditionally been involved in the assessment and treatment of female lower urinary tract infection disorders. Childbirth is a major causal factor in urogynaecology, and women often present with a combination of menstrual, genital, urinary and colorectal symptoms which require a holistic approach. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the assessment and treatment of a range of urogynaecological problems: urinary incontinence; lower urinary tract symptoms; overactive bladder; recurrent urinary tract infection; haematuria; painful bladder syndrome and interstitial cystitis; pregnancy and the renal tract; ageing and urogenital symptoms; fistulae and urinary tract injuries; pelvic organ prolapse; colorectal disorders; obstetric anal sphincter injuries. It has been comprehensively updated to reflect current clinical practice and new research since publication of the original edition.
