»Mit Billy haben wir den Helden für unsere Zeit gefunden.« The Independent Kein Geringerer als der dreifach oscargekrönte Regisseur Ang Lee (›Life of Pi: Schiffbruch mit Tiger‹, ›Brokeback Mountain‹, ›Tiger and Dragon‹) hat diesen so groteskrealistischen wie politischen Bestseller von Ben Fountain mit den Stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin und Joe Alwin grandios verfi lmt. Halb Groteske, halb Realsatire ist dieser Roman ein Bravourstück über die Dynamik von Kriegs- und Medieneinsätzen, die mitreißende Story eines jungen Soldaten: manipuliert und vom eigenen Land als Held missbraucht, Opfer eigener falscher Ideale und Getriebener, der voller Sehnsucht und auf der Suche nach sich selbst ist.

Der Handel mit geraubter Kunst ist das größte Thema der NS-Vergangenheit, das noch auf seine Aufarbeitung wartet. Der Name Hildebrand Gurlitt steht für dieses ungesühnte Unrecht, seit die Welt von seiner lange verborgenen Kunstsammlung erfuhr. Doch wer war der Mann, der als junger Museumsdirektor für die moderne Kunst kämpfte und sie dann als "entartet" verkaufte? Der als "Vierteljude" Raubkunst für Hitlers Führermuseum erwarb und daran Millionen verdiente? Meike Hoffmann und Nicola Kuhn legen die erste Biographie von Hitlers berüchtigtem Kunsthändler vor. Als Pionier der modernen Kunst ist Hildebrand Gurlitt in den 1920er Jahren vielbewundert. 1930 wird er als Museumsdirektor entlassen, als der Gegenwind von rechts zu stark wird, und verliert 1933 erneut seinen Posten. Doch kurz danach beginnt sein zweiter Aufstieg als Kollaborateur und Profiteur im Nationalsozialismus. Er verschafft dem Deutschen Reich Devisen durch den Verkauf von "Entarteter Kunst", geht nach Paris und erobert sich den Kunstmarkt in den besetzten Gebieten. Er wird reich mit Bildern, die er an Hitlers geplantes Museum in Linz verkauft und ist schon 1948 als Direktor des Kunstvereins in Düsseldorf wieder in Amt und Würden. Gurlitts Biographie ist eine Geschichte von Tragik, Verbrechen und Verdrängung, die ihren Schatten bis in die Gegenwart wirft.

Die schlimmste Dürre seit Jahrzehnten lastet wie heißes Blei auf dem ländlichen Städtchen Kiewarra mitten im Nirgendwo. Das Vieh der Farmer stirbt, die Menschen fürchten um ihre Existenz. Als Luke Hadler, seine Frau und ihr Sohn Billy erschossen aufgefunden werden, glauben alle, dass der Farmer durchgedreht ist und erweiterten Suizid begangen hat. Aber Sergeant Raco hat seine Zweifel. Aaron Falk kehrt nach zwanzig Jahren zum ersten Mal nach Kiewarra zurück - zur Beerdigung seines Jugendfreundes Luke. Bald brechen alte Wunden wieder auf; das Misstrauen wirft seine langen Schatten auf die Kleinstadt. Und in der Hitze steigt der Druck immer mehr ... Ein beklemmender Thriller um Heimat, Loyalität und Vergebung. «The Dry katapultiert Jane Harper sofort in die Elite der Thrillerautoren. Phantastische Charaktere, ein einzigartiges und unglaublich atmosphärisches Setting, ein atemberaubender Plot. Dieses Buch hat einfach alles.» (John Lescroart) «Eines der beeindruckendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe. Ich habe die glühende Hitze Australiens am eigenen Leib gespürt. Jedes einzelne Wort sitzt perfekt. Die Geschichte baut sich wie eine riesige Welle auf, bis sie schließlich auf die Erde kracht und alles auslöscht, was man vorher über diese fesselnde Geschichte gedacht hat. Lesen!» (David Baldacci, Bestsellerautor von «Der Auftrag», «Die Kampagne», «Am Limit»)
