From the bestselling author of The Cazelet Chronicles comes Elizabeth Jane Howard's Falling. Harry Kent is a sensitive man in late middle age, a reader and a thinker, without means perhaps but not without charm. Daisy has recovered from her unhappy past by learning to be self-sufficient, and viewing trust as a weakness. But there is still a part of her that yearns to be cared for once more. It is this part that Henry sees, and with dedicated and calculated patience he works at her defences. So it is that despite all attempts to resist his attentions, Daisy finds herself falling under Henry's spell . . . 'Completely unputdownable' Independent 'A superb storyteller whose elegantly written novels never fail to pull you in... she tells a taut and compelling story with a subtle build-up of tension that will keep the reader worrying till the end' Sunday Express 'An engaging study of love which explores our deepest needs and desires' Tatler 'I found myself seduced by her clever evocation of people and places, her perfect ear for dialogue and her elegant, sensitive portrayal of contemporary life' Sunday Telegraph 'A novel which, although full of subtle touches, is as unputdownable as any thriller' The Times

Chris Mooney's gripping eShort Falling introduces the conflicted hero Malcolm Fletcher. 'Remember this rule: Under no circumstances are you to go anywhere alone with Malcolm Fletcher' When Marlena is transplanted from the safety of her FBI forensic lab to a field mission in the Cayman Islands, she has no idea that she will soon find herself a crucial part of an operation to bring in the FBI's third most wanted man. And when the operation goes awry, and those charged with protecting her seem to break all the rules, Marlena finds herself face to face with the man she has been hunting - and alone. Will Malcolm Fletcher prove himself to be the remorseless, audacious killer the FBI have marked him as, or is he something far more complicated? This nerve-shredding self-contained story will enthral readers, as they - like Marlena - fall under the spell of Malcolm Fletcher, Chris Mooney's irresistibly complex new character, in this tantalising prequel to The Killing House, out on 16th August. Fans of Tess Gerritsen, Karin Slaughter and Michael Connelly will love Chris Mooney. Falling's hero Malcolm Fletcher is set to feature in Mooney's upcoming series that is sure to be as much of a success as The Secret Friend and The Dead Room. Praise for Chris Mooney: 'If you want a thriller that will chill your blood, break your heart and make your pulse race, Chris Mooney is your man' Mark Billingham 'A scary breakneck ride' Tess Gerritsen 'A wonderful writer . . . Compelling, thrilling and touching' Michael Connelly 'Harrowing, gripping, haunting, gut-wrenching and beautifully written' Harlan Coben 'It will keep you up past your bedtime' Karin Slaughter

Ein kühnes Meisterwerk – Don DeLillos großer Roman über den 11. September New York am 11. September. Eine Stadt in Asche und Rauch. In eindringlichen Bildern zeichnet Don DeLillo den Ablauf der Ereignisse nach: von den Tätern zu den Opfern, von Hamburg nach New York. Erzählt wird das Leben einer Familie, die berührende Geschichte einer Liebe, der Alltag nach der Katastrophe. Keith Neudecker, der im World Trade Center gearbeitet hat, kann sich am 11. 9. aus einem der brennenden Türme retten. Er sieht, was geschieht, ohne es zu begreifen, und schlägt sich wie in Trance zu seiner Ex-Frau Lianne und seinem kleinen Sohn Justin durch. In ihrer Verzweiflung klammern sich Keith und Lianne aneinander, sie wollen aus der Einsamkeit der Angst in ein gemeinsames Leben zurückfinden. Gespräche, vor allem in Liannes Familie, kreisen um den Schock, um den Terrorismus als ständige Bedrohung. Justin und seine Freunde versuchen im Spiel ihre Angst vor den Terroristen zu überwinden. Keith durchlebt immer wieder das Trauma der Flucht aus den Türmen, und Lianne irrt ziellos durch die Stadt. Und dann sieht sie voller Entsetzen Falling Man, einen Performance-Künstler. Nur mit einem Seil gesichert, stürzt er sich als Chronist des Zeitalters des Terrors hoch oben von den Wolkenkratzern in die Tiefe. Der Terror bestimmt die Realität. »Falling Man« ist ein weiterer Höhepunkt in DeLillos Werk. Von Neuem beweist der Autor, wie scharfsinnig und zugleich sensibel er einschneidende Ereignisse wahrnimmt. Mit großer sprachlicher Kunst und Prägnanz gelingt es Don DeLillo, das scheinbar Unsagbare überzeugend in Worte zu fassen.Die Originalausgabe des Romans erschien am 15. 5. 2007 in den USA.

Für diese Untersuchung wurde dem Autor am 13. 9. 2007 der René Kuczynski-Preis für herausragende Publikationen auf dem Gebiet der Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte verliehen. Der Autor definiert die Wirtschaftsleistung Ostdeutschlands im Vergleich zu Westdeutschland neu. Dazu zieht er in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur vorliegende Berechnungen und eigene Schätzungen heran. Zum einen bestimmt er die Wirtschaftsleistung für die Stichjahre 1936 und 1954 neu, um den Einfluss der Startbedingungen abschätzen zu können. Außerdem berechnet er die Produktion der Industrie und ihrer Branchen auf Basis physischer Angaben für den Zeitraum 1936-1991 sowie darauf aufbauend das gesamte Bruttoinlandsprodukt Ostdeutschlands neu. Die erzielten Ergebnisse sind innovativ und erweitern unser Wissen über Niveau und Entwicklung der Wirtschaft auf dem Gebiet der DDR. Es handelt sich um die derzeit beste, breiteste, fundierteste Berechnung der Wirtschaftsentwicklung der DDR, und zwar im Vergleich mit Westdeutschland.

From the crowd below a journalist watches, as a circus girl performs her strangely daring trapeze act, and is captivated by her beauty, outrageous costumes and exotic make-up in such a way that he finds himself falling helplessly in love with her. But it is from a prison cell that the journalist remembers what happened - a prison like a microcosm of the world outside, where there are those who risk, and those who are self-incarcerated. Exploring the courage to aim beyond human limitation, Falling is an intensely moving story of love and loss.

At 18 years of age, Clint Pearson was a rock climber and local track star, and despite his long hair and carefree dress, he was maniacally driven. Even after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), he continued to climb mountains and take risks, unmindful of the dangers. He shunned commitment and saw women as trophies, that is, until he met Ursula. A South African of East Indian descent, Ursula had grown up under the shroud of apartheid and had nurtured a healthy supply of caution in the process. At first she sought to maintain her distance from the brash and disheveled American, but after Clint and Ursula found themselves in a car, at night, inside a redwood forest, nuptials were soon to follow. Their differences were extreme but so too were their feelings for each other, and as Clint plodded through medical school, becoming emotionally entangled in the poignant dramas of his patients, the marriage remained strong. Then during residency training, financial pressures intensified, leisure time vanished, and Clint's MS progressed despite several medicines. On one occasion, MS medication even precipitated a high fever, and Clint's body had to be packed in ice. The marriage ultimately survived both Clint's declining health and his residency, but the MS continued to progress, making Clint's mountain-climbing ambitions increasingly unrealistic. Yet he remained an adventurer, a climber at heart. Would he push ahead only to stumble and fall or could Ursula and his patients somehow teach him to climb mountains of a different kind?

Everyone expected fifteen-year-old Matt Shaw to be Jeffords Junior High's star basketball player. But Matt never went out for the team. He won't even touch a ball anymore, and he hardly talks to anyone. No one understands why he's changed, but Matt knows that it's his "golden child" older brother who's really been doing all the changing. Matt can't imagine what would happen to his family if word got out about Neal's drug habit and the strung-out strangers he's seen coming and going from the house when their parents aren't home. Matt can't tell anyone what he knows – not his parents, not the police detective who refuses to leave him alone, not even Katie, the one girl he's ever really had feelings for. But even Matt has to wonder eventually if he's holding on to someone he may already have lost. With his unparalleled ear for teen dialogue and emotions, Doug Wilhelm's new novel is a captivating look at falling apart, falling in love, and all the falling in between.

There are some people in this world who are a little more aware, a little more in tune with what’s happening around them. Isabelle Bean is one of those people, and when she sits in her regular, average classroom, listening to an odd buzzing sound and feeling as if she is teetering on the edge of the universe...she is not too far from the truth. Like Alice falling through the looking glass, Isabelle soon finds herself in a parallel universe, where she’s mistaken for a witch, then finds out that her grandmother is a witch, then finds out she isn’t, but no one believes her, which is the whole reason Isabelle has tumbled into this world—to straighten everyone out on the witch and non-witch business. Oh, and to find a true friend. Dowell’s fantasy debut is, yes indeed, entrancing.
