Ein Mann verstümmelt sich selbst im Drogenwahn. Eine Frau verbrennt in einer Kühlkammer. Immer mehr bizarre Todesfälle häufen sich in ganz Deutschland. Handelt es sich dabei um Unglücke? Oder stimmt, was im Internet spekuliert wird, und es steckt ein Killer dahinter? Dort glaubt man längst an den Schleicher, einen Serienmörder, der seine Taten als groteske Unfälle tarnt. Daria Storm und ihr Team werden auf ihn angesetzt. Sie nimmt die Herausforderung an, obwohl sie mit anderen Dingen zu kämpfen hat: mit den Schatten der Vergangenheit. Mit einem alten Bekannten, der auf der Flucht ist. Und mit dem Verdacht, dass sich ein Verräter in ihren eigenen Reihen befindet. Wird sie den Schleicher bezwingen? Oder wird sie zum Opfer ihrer wachsenden Paranoia?

Stanzas In Meditation

In the 1950s, Yale University Press published a number of Gertrude Stein's posthumous works, among them her incomparable "Stanzas in Meditation." Since that time, scholars have discovered that Stein's poem exists in several versions: a manuscript that Stein wrote and two typescripts that her partner Alice B. Toklas prepared. Toklas's work on the second typescript changed the poem when, enraged upon detecting in it references to a former lover, she not only adjusted the typescript but insisted that Stein make revisions in the original manuscript. This edition of "Stanzas in Meditation" is the first to confront the complicated story of its composition and revision. Through meticulous archival work, the editors present a reliable reading text of Stein's original manuscript, as well as an appendix with the textual variants among the poem's several versions. This record of Stein's multi-layered revisions enables readers to engage more fully with the author's radically experimental poem and also to detect the literary impact of Stein's relationship with Toklas. The editors' preface and poet Joan Retallack's introduction offer insight into the complexities of reading Stein's poetry and the innovative modes of reading that her works require and generate. Students and admirers of Stein will welcome this illuminating new contribution to Stein's oeuvre.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and The Night Manager, now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carré’s latest novel, A Legacy of Spies, is now available.

In the wake of the collapse of Lehman Brothers and with Britain on the brink of economic ruin, a young English couple takes a vacation in Antigua. There they meet Dima, a Russian who styles himself the world’s Number One money-launderer and who wants, among other things, a game of tennis. Back in London, the couple is subjected to an interrogation by the British Secret service who also need their help. Their acquiescence will lead them on a precarious journey through Paris to a safe house in Switzerland, helpless pawns in a game of nations that reveals the unholy alliances between the Russian mafia, the City of London, the government and the competing factions of the British Secret Service.

We succeed in business and in life when we influence how others think, feel, and act: getting them to accept our point of view, follow our lead, join our cause, feel our excitement, or buy our products and services. The act of influencing is such a part of our daily lives that we often don't even realize when we (or others) are doing it. But to succeed, we need to know how influence works...and how to use it.

Based on 20 years of research, Elements of Influence shows readers how to: * Understand why people allow themselves to be influenced-and why they resist * Choose the right approach for each situation * Be influential when they have no formal authority * Succeed in every kind of organization-even in other countries Filled with exercises and practical applications, this book shows how anyone can increase his or her influence to achieve greater success.
