Cloister Witte hat eine dunkle Vergangenheit und einen niedlichen Hund. Über den Hund redet er immer gern, doch seine von einem verschwundenen Bruder, einem nichtsnutzigen Vater und einem kriminellen Stiefvater überschattete Kindheit lässt er lieber in Montana. Heute gehört er zur Hundestaffel des San Diego Sheriff’s Department und entrichtet seinen Tribut an die Geister seiner Vergangenheit, indem er tut, was niemand für seinen Bruder tun konnte: Er findet die Vermissten und bringt sie heim. Er besitzt ein Talent dafür, schwierige Fälle zu lösen. Der Hund erst recht. Diesmal handelt es sich bei der vermissten Person um einen zehnjährigen Jungen, der mitten in der Nacht in den Wald ging und nicht zurückkehrte. Mit der feindselig angehauchten Hilfe des ablenkend gut aussehenden FBI-Agenten Javi Merlo findet er schnell heraus, dass Drew Hartley nicht einfach fortlief. Er wurde entführt und die Spuren deuten darauf hin, dass er nicht das erste Opfer ist. Als die Suche voranschreitet, werden alte Bitterkeit und Tragödien der Vergangenheit ans Licht gezerrt. Gleichzeitig scheint es mit jedem neuen Hinweis weniger wahrscheinlich, dass Drew lebend gefunden werden kann.

'A heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray' (Publishers Weekly) Death comes calling on small-town librarian Aurora Teagarden in this entertaining mystery from #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris.

Knowing Jane, Roe concludes that the elderly woman has purposely left her a murder to solve. So she must identify the victim and figure out which one of Jane's ordinary-seeming neighbors is a murderer - without putting herself in deadly danger . . .

The good and bad news about food, with wisdom and advice on diets, food safety, GMOs, farming, and more

Since his New York Times op-ed column debuted in 2011, Mark Bittman has emerged as one of our most impassioned and opinionated observers of the food landscape. The Times’ only dedicated opinion columnist covering the food beat, Bittman routinely makes readers think twice about how the food we eat is produced, distributed, and cooked, and shines a bright light on the profound impact that diet—both good and bad—can have on our health and that of the planet. In A Bone to Pick, Mark’s most memorable and thought-provoking columns are compiled into a single volume for the first time. As abundant and safe as the American food supply appears to be, the state of our health reveals the presence of staggering deficiencies in both the system that produces food and the forces that regulate it. Bittman leaves no issue unexamined; agricultural practices, government legislation, fad diets, and corporate greed all come under scrutiny and show that the issues governing what ends up in our market basket and on our tables are both complex and often deliberately confusing. Unabashedly opinionated and invariably thought provoking, Bittman’s columns have helped readers decipher arcane policy, unpack scientific studies, and deflate affronts to common sense when it comes to determining what “eating well” truly means. As urgent as the situation is, Mark contends that we can be optimistic about the future of our food and its impact on our health, as slow-food movements, better school-lunch programs, and even “healthy fast food” become part of the norm. At once inspiring, enraging, and enlightening, A Bone to Pick is an essential resource for every reader eager to understand not only the complexities inherent in the American food system, but also the many opportunities that exist to improve it.

After an accident several years ago, Dean Kropp couldn't work in his business as a caterer to the stars due to his injuries. Fortunately he had insurance. They would take care of him, right? Wrong. Navigating the ins and outs of laws that vary from state to state, fighting insurance companies working diligently to deny claims, and the labyrinth of paperwork and rules for government aid are exhausting . . . when you are healthy. Try it while healing from an accident, "or two, or three." Are you prepared if life takes a nosedive after an illness or injury? Do you have a clear understanding of your vehicle insurance? Do you know your rights if you are hurt in a no-fault accident? Would you be able to make a comeback after being out of work for seven years? Many of us avoid thinking about these questions. Often, when bad things happen, we are not prepared. Dean's story will give you a better idea of what you may be up against if you are injured -- and how you can protect yourself.
