The Edgar Award–winning novel by the “master of nail-biting suspense”(Los Angeles Times) Thomas Perry exploded onto the literary scene with The Butcher’s Boy. Back in print by popular demand, this spectacular debut, from a writer of “infernal ingenuity” (The New York Times Book Review), includes a new Introduction by bestselling author Michael Connelly. Murder has always been easy for the Butcher’s Boy—it’s what he was raised to do. But when he kills the senior senator from Colorado and arrives in Las Vegas to pick up his fee, he learns that he has become a liability to his shadowy employers. His actions attract the attention of police specialists who watch the world of organized crime, but though everyone knows that something big is going on, only Elizabeth Waring, a bright young analyst in the Justice Department, works her way closer to the truth, and to the frightening man behind it. Praise for The Butcher’s Boy “A stunning debut . . . a brilliantly plotted thriller.”—The Washington Post “A shrewdly planned and executed thriller.”—The New York Times Book Review “Thomas Perry has hit the mark.”—Houston Chronicle “Totally enthralling.”—The New Yorker

"I killed my father. I did not know it then, but I know it now." Thus begins Bart Bauer's memoir and his struggle to come to terms with a decision made in 1994 that hastened his father's death. The 80-year-old author looks back over his growing-up years as the son of a small-town butcher. "I was a willing assistant to my father. Just about every day, we killed something to meet the needs of our customers. We slaughtered cattle in a one-room, unheated slaughterhouse. In winter, wearing blood-encrusted coveralls, we kept our hands warm handling steaming entrails. In summer, we worked bare-chested when scalding hogs." He recalls his father's passion for hunting fox and raccoon. And his dad's love for his dogs-and the tragedy that nearly occurred when a neighbor shot one of his beloved dogs. Now an old man, the author struggles with the mystery of death, thinks about the deaths of family members and how they died, and speculates on how he will die, questioning the existence of a hereafter.

Abused and orphaned at thirteen, red-haired Rosso flees his Venetian village with only the clothes on his back and his brother's bitter threats in his ears. He becomes one of the hundreds of shadowy figures roaming the medieval Italian countryside, threatened by warring kingdoms, deadly plagues, and often one another. But Rosso is not one to give in to suffering or fear, and his new, independent life takes a turn for the better when he meets two fellow travelers who offer him the kind of family he never had. Rosso and his friends set out on a series of adventures that will test and bind them. The abused son of a butcher becomes a shepherd, a soldier, a monk, and even a spy. With each new adventure, this unlikely hero finds himself more deeply enmeshed in the intrigues that will define the future of the continent. Rosso is a delightful debut that reminds us that hope endures in every time and for every person who seeks it, even for those who seem invisible.

Ein überwältigender Roman über die Zerbrechlichkeit von Menschlichkeit und Würde. Es ist um 1870, als Will Andrews der Aussicht auf eine glänzende Karriere und Harvard den Rücken kehrt. Beflügelt von der Naturauffassung Ralph W. Emersons, sucht er im Westen nach einer »ursprünglichen Beziehung zur Natur«. In Butcher’s Crossing, einem kleinen entlegenen Städtchen in Kansas, wimmelt es von rastlosen Männern, die das Abenteuer suchen und schnell verdientes Geld ebenso schnell wieder vergeuden. Einer von ihnen lockt Andrews mit Geschichten von riesigen Büffelherden, die, versteckt in einem entlegenen Tal tief in den Colorado Rockies, nur eingefangen werden müssten: Andrews schließt sich einer Expedition an, mit dem Ziel, die Tiere aufzuspüren. Die Reise ist aufreibend und strapaziös, aber am Ende erreichen die Männer einen Ort von paradiesischer Schönheit. Doch statt von Ehrfurcht werden sie von Gier ergriffen – und entfesseln eine Tragödie. Ein Roman darüber, wie man im Leben verliert und was man dadurch gewinnen kann.

Chris Kyle diente von 1999 bis 2009 bei den US Navy SEALs und verzeichnete in jener Zeit die höchste Zahl an tödlichen Treffern in der amerikanischen Militärgeschichte. 160 gezielte Liquidationen schreibt ihm das Pentagon offiziell zu. Seine Kameraden nannten ihn "Die Legende", seine Feinde "Teufel" ...

Seine Frau Taya schildert in bewegenden Einschüben, wie der Krieg sich nicht nur auf ihre Ehe und ihre Kinder auswirkte, sondern auch auf ihren Mann. American Sniper ist das Psychogramm eines Scharfschützen und ein fesselnder Augenzeugenbericht aus dem Krieg, den nur ein Mann erzählen kann.
