The gripping international bestseller that fuses an ingenious detective tale with stunning, cinematic storytelling—and a provocative riff on quantum physics—from Germany’s foremost young literary talent. A child is kidnapped but does not know it. One man dies, two physicists fight, and a senior constable falls in love. In the end, everything is different . . . yet exactly the same.” —Prologue A rising star who has garnered some of Europe’s most important literary prizes, Juli Zeh has established herself as the new master of the philosophical thriller. With In Free Fall, she now takes us on a fast-paced ride through deadly rivalry and love’s infinite configurations. Against the backdrop of Germany and Switzerland, two physicists begin a dangerous dance of distrust. Friends since their university days, when they were aspiring Nobel Prize candidates, they now interact in an atmosphere of tension, stoked by Oskar’s belief that Sebastian fell into mediocrity by having a family. When Sebastian’s son, Liam, is apparently kidnapped, their fragile friendship is further tested. Entrusted with uncovering the truth, Detective Superintendent Schilf discerns a web of blackmail, while at the same time the reality of his personal life falls into doubt. Unfolding in a series of razor-sharp scenes, In Free Fall is a riveting novel of ideas from a major new literary voice. With the recent success of works in translation, such as Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire, Zeh is poised to take off. From the Hardcover edition.

Women today are fading. In a female culture built on Photoshopped perfection and Pinterest fantasies, we’ve lost the ability to dream our own big dreams. So busy trying to do it all and have it all, we’ve missed the life we were really designed for. And we are paying the price. The rise of loneliness, depression, and anxiety among the female population in Western cultures is at an all-time high. Overall, women are two and a half times more likely to take antidepressants than men. What is it about our culture, the expectations, and our way of life that is breaking women down in unprecedented ways? In this vulnerable memoir of transformation, Rebekah Lyons shares her journey from Atlanta, Georgia, to the heart of Manhattan, where she found herself blindsided by crippling depression and anxiety. Overwhelmed by the pressure to be domestically efficient, professionally astute, and physically attractive, Rebekah finally realized that freedom can come only by facing our greatest fears and fully surrendering to God’s call on our lives. This book is an invitation for all women to take that first step toward freedom. For it is only when we free-fall that we can truly fly.

In the realm of vampire fiction, we meet dangerous, romantic, exotic beings - in a word, they're extraordinary. But what if a perfectly ordinary person became a vampire? Would his undead existence be ... ordinary? Hardly. THE VAMPIRE IN FREE FALL takes us on a roller-coaster ride of adventure as our "ordinary" night stalker finds himself caught up in espionage, murder for hire, grand theft and bloody revenge. The dangers of his tour as a soldier in Vietnam quickly pale against the car chases, street fights, burglaries and contract killings of his new life as a blood-drinking assassin-spy. Whether he can escape his human handlers and attain freedom, peace of mind and the love he craves is another matter. But never is this vampire's life merely ordinary. Jim Hull - author of Are Humans Obsolete? - brings a unique approach to the vampire thriller, taking us from Saigon to the outer planets, from the 1960s to the twenty-third century, from a war in the jungle to battles in space. It's part hard-boiled, part sci-fi, part dark comedy and all excitement, a tale that'll keep you in its grip. "It will appeal to anybody who enjoys vampire books . . . I'm gonna hate myself in the morning but I need to keep reading!"

Past presidents and years of self-serving Congressmen have brought our once great country to the threshold of moral decay and financial ruin. Leading economists warn that the country has only eight to ten years before we enter bankruptcy. When this happens, our money will lose its value in the international market place. As we move into a non-recoverable depression, we may even see figures of 80% or more unemployment. There will be no retirement checks. And, brutal gangs will control out city streets. The only chance that we have to survive is to rid ourselves of the representatives now in office. The author is forming a new non-political party called “We the People Party”. This party will be the voice of the people. When the people speak, the new movement will act in support of their mandate. With 230 million unhappy voters in this country, never before has there been a better time to sweep the two major parties from office. Read on to find out how we will get the votes to sweep the 2012 elections. The author also shows how we can restore fiscal control to the government, repeal most taxes and create thousands of meaningful skilled jobs for our weak economy. Additionally, the author takes a new hardline approach on criminals and the Criminal Justice system in America.

With one accusation, army officer Cassidy Matthews's name, reputation—and life—are on the line. A Special Forces soldier insists that Cassy's Fort Bragg-based unit is smuggling drugs. And the accuser? It's Cassy's handsome, stubborn ex-husband, Major Shane Logan. Shane knows Cassy is innocent, which is why he's sure she's being set up to take the fall. Proving it, though, means working together…and trying to ignore the feelings they still share. The closer they get—to the truth and each other—the more the danger grows from a ruthless criminal who'll stop at nothing to destroy them both.
