NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller! A beautiful young woman's corpse is found dumped in a garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no secrets-except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won't listen. One of the town's most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat's chief suspect. As the death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is close enough to touch her. Praise for Tess Gerritsen "[The author] has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists."-Associated Press "[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes."-Chicago Tribune "One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today."-The Providence Journal Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered

Fujisan , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 410min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Okano, a convenience store employee with a troubled past, is but one of the many unforgettable characters found in this collection of four stories. Among the others are three boys facing a frightening lesson in mortality, a woman using garbage to fill a hole in her heart, and a nurse struggling to cope with the oft-brutal cycle of birth, life, and death. Remaining constant even as it fades in and out of view is the great Mount Fuji, one of Japan’s Three Holy Mountains. It serves as the anchor for these characters’ lives, and for Randy Taguchi’s Fujisan, an exploration of redemption, discovery, loss, and remembrance - and the eternal bond with the mystical natural powers that connect us all. 1.

If you have ventured into real estate investing, that is one of the best decisions you have ever made so far. Many people, some of them your friends and family, may never make such a decision to take charge of their financial fate. However, since you have chosen this path, you now hold great power, and you have heard that “with great power comes great responsibility”. You may not feel successful now, and there is no problem with that. The habits discussed below will make you a successful investor if you apply them. One of your greatest responsibilities as an investor in real estate is to be an effective manager of your portfolio. It does not matter whether you manage your own property or you have hired a property manager, you are a manger. Owning rental property is never a walk in the park. There are many issues that you may have to encounter, such as bad property managers, bad employees, economic depressions, natural disasters, among many others. Learn to properly manage your property and your finances. Increasing your rental property income is another task. This does not just refer to increasing the rent. To accomplish this, you should always rent out your property at the market rate. You will lose out on a lot if you decide to offer below market rent. Renting too high may also be a problem. Vacancy is one of the main cash flow killers, and you will experience it a lot if your rent is too expensive. This does not mean that you become a penny pincher. Your tenants also have a right to enjoy the property. However, you can cut costs in many ways.For instance:Transfer some utility payment responsibilities to the tenant (electricity, garbage, water)If your property tax bill is too high, challenge itTry getting better insurance ratesApply water-saving techniquesUse energy efficient appliancesLook for vendors who will offer lower rates for longer contractsSwitch to fewer (but 1.

The Rock: The History of Alcatraz Island and Am...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Alcatraz Island has been home to a lighthouse, a military fort, a national park, and gatherings of Native American protesters, but say the name Alcatraz to any American and they will immediately associate it with prison. This is somewhat ironic since the island, just a mile and a half away from San Francisco in the Bay, was a federal prison for only three decades, but in that time, "The Rock" became notorious for being the most secure prison in the nation. In that time, 3 dozen prisoners tried to escape, which led to the "Battle of Alcatraz" and some of the most complex plots ever made to bust out, but nobody ever successfully escaped The Rock, and several died trying. As one commenter poignantly put it, "You break the rules, you go to prison. You break the prison rules, you go to Alcatraz Prison." Another writer echoed this sentiment, calling Alcatraz "the great garbage can of San Francisco Bay, into which every federal prison dumped its most rotten apples." In a sense, it was fitting that Alcatraz became the most famous prison in American history, because hundreds of years before the penitentiary was located there, it was being used by Native Americans to banish members. Thanks to the strong currents near it and the cold, inhospitable terrain of the small island, Native Americans only used it sparingly, and unruly members were often sent there as punishment. 1.

Junk Raft: An Ocean Voyage and a Rising Tide of...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An exciting account of an activist scientist's unorthodox fight in the growing movement against plastic marine pollution and of his expedition across the Pacific on a homemade "junk raft". Over the past several years, the news media has brought the Great Pacific Garbage Patch - the famous swirling gyre of plastic litter in the ocean - into the public consciousness. When Marcus Eriksen cofounded the 5 Gyres Institute with his wife, Anna, and set out to study marine pollution, they found that the reality is even direr: instead of a stable mass of litter, they discovered that a "plastic smog" of microparticles permeates the world's oceans, defying simplistic clean-up efforts. What's more, these microplastics and their toxic chemistry have seeped into the food chain, threatening marine life and humans alike. Far from being a gloomy treatise on an environmental catastrophe, though, Junk Raft tells the exciting story of Eriksen's fight to raise awareness and solve the problem of plastic pollution, contributing to a fast-growing movement to stem the tide of trash. Eriksen writes of his voyage from Los Angeles to Hawaii aboard his homemade "junk raft", and along the way he recounts the successful efforts to fight corporate influence and demand that plastics producers take responsibility for a problem they've created. Eriksen provides concrete, actionable solutions and an empowering message: It's up to bold, brash, unapologetically activist "citizen scientists" to challenge the status quo for the sake of the planet. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is out of his element, working onboard the Magellan, a research vessel studying the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But his work is interrupted when, surrounded by 30 miles of refuse, the ship and its high-tech systems are plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm. When the storm fades and the sun rises, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island...and no one knows how they got there. Even worse, the ship has been sabotaged, two crewmen are dead, and a third is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man onshore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they quickly discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the island’s former occupants: Unit 731, Japan’s ruthless World War II human experimentation program. Mass graves and military fortifications dot the island, along with a decades-old laboratory housing the remains of hideous experiments. As more crew members start to disappear, Hawkins realizes that they are not alone. In fact, he suspects they were brought to this strange and horrible island. The crew is taken one by one, and while Hawkins fights to save his friends, he learns the horrible truths: Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person taking his crewmates may not be a person at all - not anymore. 1.
