Das Buchereignis 2018: Bill Clinton und James Pattersons »The President Is Missing« ist ein hochspannender Thriller über Ereignisse, die wirklich so eintreffen können – eine Geschichte am Puls der Zeit, die man sich auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen darf. »The President Is Missing« handelt von einer Bedrohung so gigantischen Ausmaßes, dass sie nicht nur das Weiße Haus und die Wall Street in Aufruhr versetzt, sondern ganz Amerika. Angst und Ungewissheit halten die Nation in ihrem Würgegriff. Gerüchte brodeln – über Cyberterror und Spionage und einen Verräter im Kabinett. Sogar der Präsident selbst gerät unter Verdacht und ist plötzlich von der Bildfläche verschwunden. In der packenden Schilderung dreier atemberaubend dramatischer Tage wirft »The President Is Missing« ein Schlaglicht auf die komplizierten Mechanismen, die für das reibungslose Funktionieren einer hoch entwickelten Industrienation wie Amerika sorgen, und ihre Störanfälligkeit. Gespickt mit Informationen, über die nur ein ehemaliger Oberbefehlshaber verfügt, ist dies wohl der authentischste, beklemmendste Roman jüngerer Zeit, eine Geschichte – von historischer Tragweite und zum richtigen Moment erzählt –, die noch jahrelang für Zündstoff sorgen wird.

Kirkus Reviews named Midnight, Kevin Egan's first diabolically twisty legal thriller, a "Best Book of 2013." Now Egan returns to the bench with The Missing Piece, an all-new tale of courtroom intrigue, legal maneuvers, deception, desperation...and cold-blooded murder. The Salvus Treasure is a fabulous hoard of ancient Roman silver, worth a total of seventy million dollars. Uncovered decades ago under disputed circumstances, the treasure has been claimed by various parties, some of whom will stop at nothing to secure full ownership of its riches. People have died—and killed—to possess all fourteen pieces of silver. The legal battle over who truly owns the treasure finally leads to the New York County Courthouse in Lower Manhattan. But as teams of high-priced lawyers wrangle over provenance and witnesses, a shocking act disrupts the trial...and a crucial piece of evidence goes missing. The missing piece is a silver urn worth at least five million dollars. Now the race is on to discover what became of the urn...before the Salvus Treasure claims more lives. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Long Journey is a Scripture-based fictional Christmas story. It deals with some of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. The story traces the journey of the wise men from the east in search of the King, whose birth was portended by a bright star. The word journey in the title of the story signifies both the travel as well as the life-journey of the characters in the story. It describes how the lives of the wise men and the shepherds in the Judean wilderness intersect, and how their lives were affected by their visit to the manger in Bethlehem. A greater portion of the narrative includes how the life of a Bedouin shepherd boy was transformed by the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

On New Year's Day, 1753, Elizabeth Canning disappeared. An eighteen-year-old girl, she was unremarkable in every respect, from her appearance to her disposition, but she was about to become the most famous person in London. When she reappeared one month later, starving and ill, she claimed she had been abducted and held captive by a woman named Susannah Wells, who wanted Elizabeth to work for her as a prostitute. Based on Elizabeth's testimony, Wells was arrested, tried, and convicted—but the case was just getting started. Convinced the young woman was lying, the Lord Mayor of London set out to uncover the truth. What followed was one of the most celebrated criminal cases of the era. The controversy, which threatened to tear London apart, revolved around one frightened, mysterious girl. Meticulously researched and irresistibly readable, Elizabeth Is Missing is the definitive account of one of the most unusual cases of the eighteenth century, a must-read for fans of historical true crime.
