Langsam kehrt bei Maisie die Erinnerung zurück: Ein Blitz hatte die Oberleitung getroffen und der Funkenregen sie auf das Schlimmste verbrannt. Maisies Leben wird nie mehr so sein wie zuvor. Doch sie hat großes Glück: Sie erhält ein Gesichtstransplantat. Aber kann man das wirklich Glück nennen? Wenn sie sich selbst nicht mehr im Spiegel erkennt, sie in der Schule zum Außenseiter wird, weil ihr Gesicht aussieht wie von Picasso gemalt, und ihr Freund, ihre erste Liebe, nur aus Mitleid bei ihr bleibt? Erst als Maisie auf Menschen trifft, die ihr altes Gesicht nicht kennen, gelingt es ihr, ihr neues Ich anzunehmen. Und sie begreift: Sag niemals nie.

Deputy district attorney Carson Tanner has dedicated his life to justice. But he is still haunted by one case that was never solved: the murder of his entire family in cold blood. Back then, the teenage Carson was protected by his girlfriend's influential father, Senator Randolph Drake. But now, fifteen years later, Carson finds himself facing a whole new world when a man confesses to the Tanner killings. His name is John Stokes. And his confession only scratches the surface of the truth... Carson knows that Annette Baxter uses her brains and beauty as a fixer for the rich and powerful, making their indiscretions disappear in exchange for security and influence. But now someone is using her clients' secrets—and her own—against her. And even though Carson can't ignore his attraction to her, he is dead-set on making Annette pay for her crimes...but what if she holds the key to the burning secret he's spent his whole life seeking?

Easy reading book. A panhandler, an alcoholic mother, a lawyer behind the wheel of a bucket truck, a state trooper who despises women, a presidential candidate fond on social media, a coroner with a new set of scalpels, and a star maker with the latest technology. All in a mosaic, or better an orgy of life stories taped and narrated by the author himself.

For Scott Evans, putting the past behind him was not an option. There was a gaping wound left in his mind, one which could never heal without the help of something else: revenge. Shunned by his small, Southern town, Scott retreated to the shadows, forgotten. Until now. He hunts his prey like a wild beast, staying hidden in the shadows of a town that too easily forgets the history which haunts it. Determined not to stop until his thirst for blood has been quenched, Scott takes one victim at a time, savoring each moment as if it were the last. Having framed Stone Creek's town administrator for his murders, Scott is invisible to the law except through the eyes of one man-Charlie Wallace. With an extraordinarily strong sense of intuition, Charlie tracks down Scott and unravels the secret that Stone Creek has been hiding for so many years.

Street life in the slums of Accra is realistically portrayed in this socially-commited, subtle novel about four educated women who are inspired by the plight of a 14-year old girl, Fofo. As the main characters convert their library center into a practical street initiative, the novel invokes the squalor, health risks, and vicious cycles of poverty and violence that drive children to the streets and women to prostitution; and, from which, ultimately, no one in the society is free.

The contributions to this book explore a phenomenon that appears to be a contradiction in itself – we, the users of computers, can be tracked in digital space for all eternity. Although, on the one hand, one wants to be noticed and noticeable, on the other hand one does not necessarily want to be recognized at the first instance, being prey to an unfathomable public, or – even less so – to lose face. The book documents artistic and other strategies that point out options for appearing in the infinite book of faces whilst nevertheless avoiding being included in any records. The desire not to become a mere object of facial sell-out does not just remain an aesthetic endeavor. The contributions also contain combative and sarcastic statements against a digital dynamic that has already penetrated our everyday lives.

Paul sat on a green grassy hill looking down on the lake and the city. He hated who he had become. He sat on the grass in his $979.00 suit. His skinny ankles in thin socks stuck out from the bottom of his pants that flapped in the breeze. His shoulders, hunched, were too big for the jacket. The tie hung down between his legs. He felt out of place. The grass, the lake, the blue sky mocked him. He was locked out. Locked in a suit. Shut in behind tinted glass. Breathing air conditioning all day long. He would quit his job – it was an easy decision after all.
