Grim and unsettling ... a fast-paced read that is utterly absorbing.' - Kathy Reichs On the day she was abducted, Annie O'sullivan, a 32-year-old real estate agent, had three goals - sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all. Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape - her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor. The truth doesn't always set you free. 'A heart-pounding debut. Stevens pulls out all the stops in this cat-and-mouse battle between a brilliant psychopath and his tenacious victim. By equal turns clever and compelling, this is the not-to-be missed thriller of the year.' - Lisa Gardner 'Not just a gripping mystery about a woman's abduction, a story about her hard-fought return - to self, to independence, to life. Frank, fierce, and sometimes even funny, this is a dark tale pinpricked with light - and told by an unforgettable heroine.' - Gillian Flynn, author of Sharp Objects '... a compelling, unputdownable thrill rid ... The twists are so treacherous and unexpected you'll need a neck brace by the time you finish.' - Linda Castillo, author of Sworn to Silence 'Engrossing, terrifying and ultimately full of girl-kick-ass, Still Missing will suck you in from page one.' - Chelsea Cain, author of Heartsick Still Missing is that rare debut find - a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted thriller.

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.

Abstract: Local-level Sustainability Assessment has been a new policy instrument that has been advocated by policy communities to enhance the promotion of sustainable development. Its origin can be traced back to the earlier idea of Environmental Impact Assessment which was the first generation of sustainability assessment tools. Nowadays, most of the countries have enacted the EIA into law and regulation and provided a comprehensive impact assessment system on different environmental aspects so as to minimize the impacts by the development. The Social Impact Assessment was also introduced in some countries so as to mitigate the impacts on the local community and culture. Later, Strategic Environmental Assessment was also suggested in policy making process so as to provide a territorial level planning assessment. Still, there is a missing part in developing sustainability assessment tools at the local level. The concept of sustainable development was firstly introduced in 1999 by the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The Council for Sustainable Development, which its members are appointed by the Chief Executive and the Sustainable Development Division of the Environment Bureau, are mainly responsible for this issue. However, the effectiveness of promoting sustainable development is being questioned. Though there is a relatively long development on local planning, there is a lack of tools for Sustainability Assessment in the local level. In a short term, it is a big challenge to develop a local-level sustainability assessment. In a long term, a local-level sustainability assessment can help evaluate the overall sustainability performance of the District. This study, aims to conceptualize and evaluate the current sustainability assessment system so as to consolidate a better Sustainability Assessment system for the local planning in Hong Kong.
