A ​gripping, action-packed short story available only as an eBook—from a master of character, crime, and urgent suspense. Will Trent, a dedicated agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for fifteen years, knows that there’s definitely such a thing as a cop’s intuition. Which is why he should have listened to his own. While in an airport restroom at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International, Will overhears a girl’s pleading, plaintive voice: “Please, I wanna go home.” Something isn’t right here, thinks Will. He feels it in his gut. But he waits too long to act, and now the girl and the anxious, angry man she’s with have disappeared into the crowds at the busiest passenger airport in the world. After a desperate search and with time running out, Will makes a call to his supervisor, Amanda Wagner. Will’s partner, Faith Mitchell, immediately sends out an abducted child alert. The entire airport will soon be grinding to a halt: Eighty-nine million passengers a year. Five runways. Seven concourses. Six million square feet of space that sprawled across two counties, three cities, and five jurisdictions. All shut down on a dime because Will has a hunch that he is certain is true: a girl, maybe six or seven years old, has been snatched from God knows where. And he intends to bring her back—no matter what it takes. Includes an exclusive excerpt from Karin Slaughter’s thrilling new novel of suspense, Criminal.

Emma Allan - Fekete ​harisnyák
Jonathan ​A. Tanner, angol műkritikus: "...igazán ritka az erotikus könyvek között az ilyen kulturált, irodalmi nyelvezetű mű. Rendkívül kellemes olvasni, noha igazán szókimondó a fogalmazás. A történet végig izgalmas, erotikus és élvezetes, én egy pillanatra sem tudtam letenni a könyvet." Emilia Calderone, mexikói könyvkritikus: "...akik még nem igazán tapasztaltak a párkapcsolatokban, nos, azok nagyon sok mindent megtanulhatnak ebből a könyvből. Elképesztően izgalmas és emlékezetes olvasmány, szívből ajánlom mindenkinek. Ajánlom a fiataloknak, hogy a kezdeti botlásokat e könyv segítségével küszöböljék ki, és ajánlom az idősebbeknek is, akik izgalmasabbá akarják tenni szexuális életüket." Egy magyarországi könyvterjesztő cég főnöknője: "...nem vagyok leszbikus, de engem is felizgatott az első jelenet, amelyben a főszereplő hölgy önmagának okoz örömet, miközben a kedvese nézi. A mű szerzője megdöbbentően hitelesen jeleníti meg mindannyiunk akár legtitkosabb gondolatait is és hitelesen írja le az erotikus játékokat."

Danielle Steel - The ​Ghost
With ​a wife he loves and an exciting London-based career, architect Charles Waterston's life seems in perfect balance. Nothing in his comfortable existence prepares him for the sudden end to his ten-year marriage—or his unwanted transfer to his firm's New York office. With nothing left to lose, Charlie takes a leave of absence from his job to drive through New England, hoping to make peace with himself. Christmas is approaching when Charlie leaves New York, heading to Vermont to ski. But a sudden, blinding snowstorm strands him in a small Massachusetts town. There, as if by chance, Charlie meets an elderly widow who offers to rent him her most precious possession: a remote, exquisite lakeside chateau. Hidden deep in the woods, it once belonged to a woman who lived and died there two centuries before. Her name was Sarah Ferguson. And from the moment Charlie sets foot inside the chateau's graceful depths, he feels her presence, and longs to know more about the life she led. It is Christmas Eve when Charlie first glimpses her, a beautiful young woman with jet black hair. He thinks it is a neighbor playing a joke on him, until he finds her diaries hidden away in an old trunk. As he begins to turn the brittle, dusty pages, Sarah Ferguson comes alive. Intrigued and unafraid, Charlie immerses himself in the diaries, eager to learn more about the woman for whom the house was built. Sarah's first entry is dated 1789, the year she arrived in America. Without self-pity or sentiment, she writes of her harrowing journey from her native England, having fled the brutality of her aristocratic husband. Settling in Massachusetts, Sarah finds an unfamiliar land seething with the turbulence of the Indian wars. Determined to start a new life in the vast new world, Sarah finds freedom—and danger—as she builds her home in the wilderness and meets a man who will transform her life. His name is François de Pellerin, a French nobleman adopted by Indians and drawn into the battle for the growing nation. Their fateful union is a testament to a love so powerful it reaches across the centuries. And for Charlie Waterston, caught between Sarah's world and his own, their story is a gift—one that gives him the courage to let go of his past, and the freedom to grasp a future that is right before his eyes.

Karin Slaughter - Triptych
In ​the city of Atlanta, young women are dying—at the hands of a killer who signs his work with a single, chilling act of mutilation. Leaving behind enough evidence to fuel a frenzied police hunt, this cunning madman is bringing together dozens of lives, crossing the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread—and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael’s lover before she became his enemy. But another player has entered the game: a loser ex-con who has stumbled upon the killer’s trail in the most coincidental of ways—someone who may be the key to breaking the case wide open….

Restif De La Bretonne - Anti-Justine
Restif ​de la Bretonne e méltán leghírhedtebb regényében nem kevesebbre vállalkozott, mint hogy megalkotja De Sade márki Justine-jéhez az ellen-művet: egy olyan Erotikont, amely szintén érzékletesen és nyíltan vezeti be az olvasót a szerelmi gyönyörök paradicsomába, de közben megkíméli őt a de sade-i képzelet minden szadomazochisztikus kegyetlenségétől. Restif eszménye az egészséges libertin: gyönyört és élvezetet, minden elképzelhető kéjmámort a végtelenségig - de szenvedés nélkül. A főszereplő Cupidonet kiterjedt nőrokonságát - húgát, nővérét, lányait stb. - a legnagyobb gondossággal vezeti be a szerelem művészetébe, hogy aztán a legképtelenebb kalandokat éljék meg szeretőik sűrűn váltakozó hadának oldalán (és másutt is persze). Kétszáz év távlatából nyugodtan elmondhatjuk: Restifnek sikerült a visszavágás, könyve éppúgy klasszikusa lett az erotikus világirodalomnak, mint De Sade művei. S éppoly garantáltan kihozza sodrából az olvasót.

But stripy tights, starched pigtails, a bright red nose and an ability to juggle whilst doing the splits only just about pay the bills and seldom lead to romance or romps. Pip, though, takes her clowning very seriously, whether at spoilt kids’ parties or on the wards of children’s hospitals. She simply doesn’t have time for a man, she claims. And her bank balance hovers just above the red, so that’s OK. Zac Holmes, 34, has a successful, high-powered career, a fabulous flat and an adored 6-year-old son from a previous relationship. Popular, charming and affluent, Zac feels that no-strings flings suit his lifestyle as much as the pleasing bonuses he earns at work. When Zac and Pip first meet, it is far from love or lust at first sight. What can a clown and an accountant possibly have in common? Against a lively backdrop of parties and parks, hospitals and hotels, the attempt to find out…

A lányt becsvágyó anyja Rómába viszi, hogy gazdag, rangos férjet találjon neki.
