"Phenomenal. Gets my highest recommendation!" —LORELEI JAMES, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author It's been twelve years since tragedy struck the senior class of Long Acre High School. Only a few students survived that fateful night—a group the media dubbed The Ones Who Got Away. Liv Arias thought she'd never return to Long Acre—until a documentary brings her and the other survivors back home. Suddenly her old flame, Finn Dorsey, is closer than ever, and their attraction is still white-hot. When a searing kiss reignites their passion, Liv realizes this rough-around-the-edges cop might be exactly what she needs... Liv's words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she'd known. The bulky football muscles had streamlined into a harder, leaner package and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence.

These thirteen stories are our own lives, inside out. A boy's summer romance doesn't end in that good kind of heartbreak, but in blood. A girl on a fishing trip makes a friend in the woods who's exactly what she needs, except then that friend follows her back to the city. A father hears a voice through his baby monitor that shouldn't be possible, but now he can't stop listening. A woman finds out that the shipwreck wasn't the disaster, but who she's shipwrecked with. A big brother learns just what he will, and won't, trade for one night of sleep. From prison guards making unholy alliances to snake-oil men in the Old West doling out justice, these stories carve down into the body of the mind, into our most base fears and certainties, and there's no anesthetic. Turn the light on if you want, but that just makes for more shadows.

A mission gone wrong. A man alone in enemy territory. A legendary escape. A TRUE STORY OF COURAGE IN THE FACE OF IMPOSSIBLE ODDS SAS Patrol Bravo Two Zero was dropped behind enemy lines in Iraq. There were eight men. Seven were captured. This is the true story of the one who got away. Chris Ryan's epic escape took him across 300 kilometres of hostile terrain at the height of the Gulf War, the longest ever escape and evasion by an SAS trooper. Battling enemy soldiers, hypothermia, and a near-fatal lack of supplies on his way to the distant Syrian border, his experience has a special place in military lore. With an introduction by Chris Ryan detailing the aftermath of his extraordinary experience and how the former members of the patrol have fallen out, this is the definitive account of that fateful mission – with new documentary evidence that settles once and for all what really happened, and photographs censored at the time of the original publication. One of the most amazing and exciting true accounts of military action ever written, this is the book that launched Chris Ryan's career as a thriller novelist – but no fiction could ever be as exciting as the real thing...

These short stories from the award-winning South African author “combine the coolly interrogative gaze of the outsider with an insider’s intimate warmth” (J. M. Coetzee). Zoë Wicomb’s debut short story collection, You Can’t Get Lost in Cape Town, won critical acclaim across the globe as well as high praise from fellow authors including Toni Morrison, J. M. Coetzee, Bharati Mukherjee, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. Now, after two novels, Wicomb returns to the genre that first brought her international acclaim. Set mostly in the South African city of Cape Town, where Wicomb is from, and the Scottish city of Glasgow, where she now lives, this new collection of short stories straddles two worlds. With an array of expertly drawn characters, these twelve tales explore a range of human relationships: marriage, friendship, family, and the fraught yet often intimate relations between those who serve and those who are served. Full of ironic twists, ambiguities, and moments of startling insight, The One That Got Away showcases this Windham Campbell Award–winning author at the height of her powers. “An extraordinary writer . . . seductive, brilliant, and precious, her talent glitters.” —Toni Morrison
