The German word for this concept-Schadenfreude-has become universal in its expression of this feeling. Drawing on the teachings of history's most prominent philosophers, John Portmann explores the concept of Schadenfreude in this rigorous, comprehensive, and absorbing study.

When thirteen-year-old Lainey fails to come home from a night out with friends, her disappearance is dismissed by the Coral Springs Police Department as just another disillusioned South Florida teen running away from suburban drama and an unhappy home life. But Special Agent Bobby Dees, who heads up the department's difficult Crimes Against Children Squad (CAC), is not quite so sure. After a search of Lainey's computer and a frank talk with her best friend reveal the teen was involved in a secret Internet relationship, Bobby suspects Lainey may be the victim of an online predator. And when chilling evidence of other possible victims is sent to a local Miami television station, he fears she may not be the only one. Bobby will find himself pulled into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the most prolific killer he's ever encountered. But will he be able to save Lainey and the others before it's too late?

Hank Thompson is living off the map in Mexico with a bagful of cash that the Russian mafia wants back and many, many secrets. So when a Russian backpacker shows up in town asking questions, Hank tries to play it cool. But he knows the jig is up when the backpacker mentions the money . . . and the family Hank left behind. Suddenly Hank’s in a desperate race to get to his parents in California before anyone can harm them. Along the way he’ll face Federales and Border Patrol, mafiosi and vigilantes, extortionists and drug dealers, and a couple of psychotic surf bums with an ax to grind. From the golden beaches of the Yucatán to the seedy strip clubs of Vegas, Charlie Huston opens a door to the squalid underworld of crime and corruption–and invites the reader to live it in the extreme.

»Manche mögen dieses Buch und besonders seinen Titel alarmierend finden. Gut!« MADELEINE ALBRIGHT Weltweit kommt es zu einem Wiedererstarken anti-demokratischer, repressiver und zerstörerischer Kräfte. Die ehemalige amerikanische Außenministerin Madeleine Albright zeigt, welche großen Ähnlichkeiten diese mit dem Faschismus des 20. Jahrhunderts haben. Die faschistischen Tendenzen treten wieder in Erscheinung und greifen in Europa, Teilen Asiens und den Vereinigten Staaten um sich. Albrights Familie stammt aus Prag und floh zweimal: zuerst vor den Nationalsozialisten, später vor dem kommunistischen Regime. Auf Grundlage dieser Erlebnisse und der Erfahrungen, die sie im Laufe ihrer diplomatischen Karriere sammelte, zeichnet sie die Gründe für die Rückkehr des Faschismus nach. Sie identifiziert die Faktoren, die zu seinem Aufstieg beitragen und warnt eindringlich vor den Folgen. Doch Madeleine Albright bietet auch klare Lösungsansätze an, etwa die Veränderung der Arbeitsbedingungen und das Verständnis für die Bedürfnisse der Menschen nach Kontinuität und moralischer Beständigkeit. Sie zeigt, dass allein die Demokratie politische und gesellschaftliche Konflikte mit Rationalität und offenen Diskussionen lösen kann.

For his first foray into fiction after his FBI memoir James Botting jumps into what he knows best, a collection of gritty police procedural short stories based on thirty years as an FBI agent and police officer. Not for those with a weak stomach or a strong sense of morality, his blunt copspeak, unforgiving descriptions of the players, black humor and surprise endings will keep the reader turning the pages looking for justice that sometimes fails to show up. A senior citizen with a diabolical homicide plan for her husband, ex-cons bumbling an armored truck robbery, kidnapping at an interstate rest stop, a homicide suspect who beats the cops at their own game, a fly fishing excursion turned into a nightmare of revelation and tragedy, a bus ride from hell, a pair of rogue cops who turn a street robbery from bad to worse and then to much worse, a high riding CEO living (and dying) with a secret, a mind numbing letter that sucks the life out of youliterally, and the slow motion death of a marriage. The anchor story follows a band of homeless outcastsdrunks, dopers and dealers, hookers, thieves, child molesters, schizos, and a human IEDliving beneath the grid in the river bottom desperately trying to survive. These wounded and broken souls, who live each day on the edge of danger and death, are as amazing as rats and cockroaches in their adaptability and resiliency. Its hard not to take sides and hope one or the other will make it. Botting, who seems to have a penchant for losers, uncovers a world of human conflict, violence and tragedy that most of us, thankfully, will never experience. You may feel a little voyeuristic and uncomfortable but its impossible to look away from the human train wrecks found in these stories.
