'Already among the world's bestselling writers, Baldacci hardly needs to prove himself but he's created one of the most intriguing, complex anti-heroes . . . Impossible to put down, especially because of Decker, who weaves a powerful spell' Daily Mail Melvin Mars awaits his fate on Death Row. He was one of America's most promising football stars until, aged twenty, he was arrested and convicted for the murder of his parents. When FBI Special Agent Amos Decker hears the news that Melvin was saved moments before his execution because someone else confessed to the killings, he launches an investigation into the Mars murders to find out what really happened. It soon becomes clear that there is someone out there with a lot to hide, and a secret everyone is looking to uncover. As the investigation deepens, Decker and his team discover layer upon layer of lies and deception rooted in a period of American history that most would rather forget, but which some seem keen to remember. 'Decker is one of the most unusual detectives any novelist has dreamed up' Washington Post 'A typically twisty plot never flags, and benefits from having the likeably offbeat sleuth (whose gifts include synaesthesia and a photographic memory) as its pivot' Sunday Times

My Salinger Year , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 491min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Poignant, keenly observed, and irresistibly funny: a memoir about literary New York in the late '90s, a pre-digital world on the cusp of vanishing, where a young woman finds herself entangled with one of the last great figures of the century. At 23, after leaving graduate school to pursue her dreams of becoming a poet, Joanna Rakoff moves to New York City and takes a job as assistant to the storied literary agent for J. D. Salinger. She spends her days in a plush, wood-paneled office, where Dictaphones and typewriters still reign and old-time agents doze at their desks after martini lunches. At night she goes home to the tiny, threadbare Williamsburg apartment she shares with her socialist boyfriend. Precariously balanced between glamour and poverty, surrounded by titanic personalities, and struggling to trust her own artistic instinct, Rakoff is tasked with answering Salinger’s voluminous fan mail. But as she reads the candid, heart-wrenching letters from his fans around the world, she finds herself unable to type out the agency’s decades-old form response. Instead, drawn inexorably into the emotional world of Salinger’s devotees, she abandons the template and begins writing back. Over the course of the year, she finds her own voice by acting as Salinger’s, on her own dangerous and liberating terms. Rakoff paints a vibrant portrait of a bright, hungry young woman navigating a heady and longed-for world, trying to square romantic aspirations with burgeoning self-awareness, the idea of a life with life itself. Charming and deeply moving, filled with electrifying glimpses of an American literary icon, My Salinger Year is the coming-of-age story of a talented writer. Above all, it is a testament to the universal power of books to shape our lives and awaken our true selves. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joanna Rakoff.

Paris In the Dark

'A morally complex and beautifully written thriller with a delicately portrayed love story at its heart. A cut above' - Mail on Sunday Autumn 1915. The First World War is raging across Europe. Woodrow Wilson has kept Americans out of the trenches, although that hasn't stopped young men and women from crossing the Atlantic to volunteer at the front. Christopher Marlowe 'Kit' Cobb, a Chicago reporter and undercover agent for the US government is in Paris when he meets an enigmatic nurse called Louise. Officially in the city for a story about American ambulance drivers, Cobb is grateful for the opportunity to get to know her but soon his intelligence handler, James Polk Trask, extends his mission. Parisians are meeting 'death by dynamite' in a new campaign of bombings, and the German-speaking Kit seems just the man to discover who is behind this - possibly a German operative who has infiltrated with the waves of refugees? And so begins a pursuit that will test Kit Cobb, in all his roles, to the very limits of his principles, wits and talents for survival. Fleetly plotted and engaging with political and cultural issues that resonate deeply today, Paris in the Dark is a page-turning novel of unmistakable literary quality. 'Written in a hard-boiled, staccato style, Paris in the Dark is an intelligent, stylish thriller, and so atmospheric that the pages reek of Gitanes and coffee' - Antonia Senior, Times 'A thriller of great depth and intelligence' - Sunday Times 'As well as being a top thriller, Paris In The Dark oozes the atmosphere of the city at that time - you can almost smell the Gauloises, not to mention the tension and fear' - Sunday Sport 'A top historical espionage thriller, tautly plotted and told with humanity and realism. Rich characterisation and an authenticity that I found gripping from the first page to the last' - C J Carver, Author of Know Me Now (The Dan Forrester Series) 'Butler's prose is a cut above. His descriptions of First World War Paris under the shadow of Zeppelins, and the threat of ground-based bombings, are exquisite - his storytelling admirable. A first-class literary thriller to lose yourself in and mourn when the last page is turned' - David Young, author of Stasi Child, Stasi Wolf and A Darker State

They're back! Sexy, manipulative real estate agent Kendra Vaughn and her karate champ boyfriend Race Richards are back in Minnesota, taking a much needed break from Los Angeles and their combined stress-load. A year and a half has passed since they first met, first hunted each other down in the great northern woodlands. Now, armed with an ancient longbow, a few arrows, and not much else, Kendra heads back into the bushes, looking for something legitimate to kill. Meanwhile, Race hits the local casino, playing blackjack and downing a few too many shot of whiskey as he waits for the phone call that will make-or-break his movie career. Also on the scene is Gretania, a murderous mail-order-bride with a wild scheme to rip-off a million dollar payout intended for the local Native American tribe. Aided by street-toughened twins Torque and Recoil, the red-headed Russian might just get away with it. Race and Kendra, pulled in by mistake, swing into action. But they just may be in over their heads...especially once the snow storm hits. For fans of the original 'KickBack,' look out--this time IT IS hunting season!
