Wofür weiterleben, wenn man durch die Hölle gehen muss, ohne einen Ausweg, ohne ein Ziel? Eine Frage, mit der sich Annie Moore jeden einzelnen Tag ihres Daseins beschäftigt. Immer dann, wenn sich die Hand ihres Ehemanns wieder würgend um ihre Kehle legt. Immer dann, wenn er sie verprügelt und gedemütigt wie ein Stück Dreck auf dem Fußboden liegen lässt. Annie sieht für sich nur noch eine Möglichkeit: es auszuhalten, bis er sie endlich umbringt. Doch das Schicksal hat einen anderen Plan und lässt ausgerechnet den charismatischen und gut aussehenden Officer Vince Carter in ihr Leben treten. Der knallharte Cop schreckt vor nichts zurück, auch nicht vor der Konfrontation mit Annies Ehemann. Schon bald muss die junge Frau erkennen, dass Vince bereit ist, alles für sie zu riskieren, notfalls auch sein eigenes Leben. Denn ihre Liebe geht tiefer als all die Schläge. >> Diese ungekürzte Hörbuch-Fassung wird Ihnen exklusiv von Audible präsentiert und ist ausschließlich im Download erhältlich. 1. Sprache: Deutsch.

On April 20, 1999, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, two seniors at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, walked into their school and shot to death twelve students and one teacher, and wounded many others. It was the worst single act of murder at a school in U.S. history. Few people knew Dylan Klebold or Eric Harris better than Brooks Brown. Brown and Klebold were best friends in grade school, and years later, at Columbine, Brown was privy to some of Harris and Klebolds darkest fantasies and most troubling revelations After the shootings, Brown was even accused by the police of having been in on the massacre simply because he had been friends with the killers. Now, for the first time, Brown, with journalist Rob Merritt, gets to tell his full version of the story. He describes the warning signs that were missed or ignored, and the evidence that was kept hidden from the public after the murders. He takes on those who say that rock music or video games caused Klebold and Harris to kill their classmates and explores what it might have been that pushed these two young men, from supposedly stable families, to harbor such violent and apocalyptic dreams. Shocking as well as inspirational and insightful, No Easy Answers is an authentic wake-up call for all the psychologists, authorities, parents, and law enforcement personnel who have attempted to understand the murders at Columbine High School. As the title suggests, the book offers no easy answers, but instead presents the unvarnished facts about growing up as an alienated teenager in America today. Brooks Brown graduated from Columbine High School in 1999; this is his first book. Most recently, Brooks worked and consulted on Michael Moores latest documentary called Bowling for Columbine. He lives in Littleton, Colorado. Rob Merritt graduated from the University of Iowa School of Journalism in 1998 and currently works as a newspaper writer in Marshalltown, Iowa.
Reminiscent of the edgy, offbeat humor of Chris Moore and Matt Ruff, the first entry in a whimsical, fast-paced supernatural series from the New York Times best-selling author of the Sandman Slim novels - a dark and humorous story involving a doomsday gizmo, a horde of baddies determined to possess its power, and a clever thief who must steal it back...again and again. It´s 22,000 BC. A beautiful, ambitious angel stands on a mountaintop, surveying the world and its little inhabitants below. He smiles because soon, the last of humanity who survived the great flood will meet its end, too. And he should know. He´s going to play a big part in it. Our angel usually doesn´t get to do fieldwork, and if he does well, he´s certain he´ll get a big promotion. And now it´s time.... The angel reaches into his pocket for the instrument of humanity´s doom. Must be in the other pocket. Then he frantically begins to pat himself down. Dejected, he realizes he has lost the object. Looking over the Earth at all that could have been, the majestic angel utters a single word. ´´Crap.´´ It´s 2015. A thief named Coop - a specialist in purloining magic objects - steals and delivers a small box to the mysterious client who engaged his services. Coop doesn´t know that his latest job could be the end of him - and the rest of the world. Suddenly he finds himself in the company of The Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome enforcement agency that polices the odd and strange. The box isn´t just a supernatural heirloom with quaint powers, they tell him. It´s a doomsday device. They think.... And suddenly, everyone is out to get it. 1. Language: English.
