Entführt - Bis du mich liebst (Mila Olsen)Nichts hasst Louisa mehr, als das Leben in dem winzigen Kaff Ash Springs, mitten in der Wüste Nevadas. Sie sehnt sich nach Spaß und Abenteuer. Als sie in den Ferien mit ihren vier Brüdern zum Campen in den Sequoia Nationalpark muss, trifft sie auf den geheimnisvollen Brendan. Ihr Schicksal nimmt eine dramatische Wende, denn Brendan ist keinesfalls zufällig am selben Ort. Akribisch hat er jeden Schritt von Louisas Entführung geplant. Er verschleppt sie in die Einsamkeit Kanadas, an einen Ort, an dem es nur Fichten, blauen Himmel, Wölfe und Hermeline gibt. Er sagt, sie wäre sein Licht in der Dunkelheit. Für Louisa beginnt eine Zeit voller Angst und Verzweiflung, in der sie immer mehr mit Brendans traumatischer Vergangenheit konfrontiert wird. Schon bald ist er für sie viel mehr als nur ihr Entführer. Mitgefühl, Zuneigung und Abhängigkeit vermischen sich und stürzen Louisa in ein tiefes Gefühlschaos. Vor allem zwei Fragen gewinnen immer mehr an Bedeutung: Darf man seinen Entführer lieben? Und wie gefährlich ist Brendan wirklich? »Ein faszinierender Mix aus düster-zarter Liebesgeschichte, Krimi und Coming out of Age-Roman. Dazu eine bedrohliche Atmosphäre und Naturdarstellungen von bedrückender Intensität [...]. Der Roman Entführt - Bis du mich liebst handelt von Entführung, Stalking, Liebe, aber vor allem geht es um die verschwimmende Grenze zwischen stark und schwach, Gut und Böse, die auf psychologisch glaubwürdige Weise stimmig ausgelotet wird.« (Petra Ottkowski, Dozentin für Kreatives Schreiben)

ALA Reading List Award for History, Short List Love and vengeance at the dark dawn of the East Texas oil boom from Joe Lansdale, "a true American original" (Joe Hill, author of Heart-Shaped Box). Jack Parker thought he'd already seen his fair share of tragedy. His grandmother was killed in a farm accident when he was barely five years old. His parents have just succumbed to the smallpox epidemic sweeping turn-of-the-century East Texas--orphaning him and his younger sister, Lula. Then catastrophe strikes on the way to their uncle's farm, when a traveling group of bank-robbing bandits murder Jack's grandfather and kidnap his sister. With no elders left for miles, Jack must grow up fast and enlist a band of heroes the likes of which has never been seen if his sister stands any chance at survival. But the best he can come up with is a charismatic, bounty-hunting dwarf named Shorty, a grave-digging son of an ex-slave named Eustace, and a street-smart woman-for-hire named Jimmie Sue who's come into some very intimate knowledge about the bandits (and a few members of Jack's extended family to boot). In the throes of being civilized, East Texas is still a wild, feral place. Oil wells spurt liquid money from the ground. But as Jack's about to find out, blood and redemption rule supreme. In The Thicket, award-winning novelist Joe R. Lansdale lets loose like never before, in a rip-roaring adventure equal parts True Gritand Stand by Me--the perfect introduction to an acclaimed writer whose work has been called "as funny and frightening as anything that could have been dreamed up by the Brothers Grimm--or Mark Twain" (New York Times Book Review).

The Einstein Girl
Author: Philip Sington
Publisher: Random House
At the heart of truth lies madness... Two months before Hitler's rise to power, a beautiful young woman is found naked and near death in the woods outside Berlin. When she finally wakes from her coma, she can remember nothing, not even her name. The only clue to her identity is a handbill found nearby, advertising a public lecture by Albert Einstein: 'On the Present State of Quantum Theory'. Psychiatrist Martin Kirsch takes the case, little suspecting that this will be his last. As he searches for the truth about 'the Einstien Girl', professional fascination turns to reckless love. His investigations lead him to a remote corner of Siberia via a psychiatric hospital in Zurich. There the inheritor of Einstein's genius - his youngest son, Eduard - is writing a book that will destroy his illustrious father and, in the process, change the world.

Grim and unsettling ... a fast-paced read that is utterly absorbing.' - Kathy Reichs On the day she was abducted, Annie O'sullivan, a 32-year-old real estate agent, had three goals - sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape - her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

By equal turns clever and compelling, this is the not-to-be missed thriller of the year.' - Lisa Gardner 'Not just a gripping mystery about a woman's abduction, a story about her hard-fought return - to self, to independence, to life. Frank, fierce, and sometimes even funny, this is a dark tale pinpricked with light - and told by an unforgettable heroine.' - Gillian Flynn, author of Sharp Objects '... a compelling, unputdownable thrill rid ... The twists are so treacherous and unexpected you'll need a neck brace by the time you finish.' - Linda Castillo, author of Sworn to Silence 'Engrossing, terrifying and ultimately full of girl-kick-ass, Still Missing will suck you in from page one.' - Chelsea Cain, author of Heartsick Still Missing is that rare debut find - a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted thriller.
