When body of a washed-up rocker is found riddled with puncture wounds, his arms tied to his bed, suspicion immediately falls on his frequent sexual partner Catherine Tramell. In the wealthy, sexually aggressive mystery writer's most recent novel, a rock star is murdered in precisely the same way. Is the book a perfect alibi, or is she pulling a double-reverse bluff? San Francisco homicide detective Nick Curran has a violent past, an addictive nature, and a belief he can handle anyone's darkness. His on-again/off-again girlfriend, police psychologist Dr. Beth Garner, disagrees. Upon meeting Catherine, he's mesmerized--despite recognizing that she's a sinister manipulator and possibly a brutal killer--finding her irresistible. Is she guilty? Does he care?

Pink Floyd the wall by Alan Parker( Visual )

24 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the wall" is told simply with the music of Pink Floyd, images and natural effects. There is no conventional dialogue to progress the narrative. The story is about Pink, a rock and roll performer, who sits locked in a hotel room, somewhere in Los Angeles. Too many shows, too much dope, too much applause, a burned out case. On the TV, an all too familiar war film flickers on the screen. We shuffle time and place, reality and nightmare as we venture into Pink's painful memories, each one a "brick" in the wall he has gradually built around his feelings
