 A woman who thought she could run away from her past...

 

At fourteen, Kate Collins ran away from home. Ten years later, her mother has disappeared without a trace. Faced with no other choice, she returns home. Kate’s convinced her stepfather’s responsible, but he’s a highly decorated police officer. Who will take her accusations seriously?

 

Banished to a small country town after reporting his city superiors for corruption, Detective Riley Munro is never going to accuse the town’s recently retired Police Commander of murder. But Kate’s fear and distress seem genuine and her mother does seem to have disappeared. With reluctance, he agrees to investigate.

 

After making rudimentary enquires, Riley’s told Kate’s mother is on a cruise. The information pans out. On the verge of closing the case, Riley is taken by surprise when he receives a subtle threat from his boss, the new Police Commander, to leave Kate’s stepfather alone.

 

Why would the new Commander feel the need to warn him off? With his instincts on alert, Riley digs deeper and discovers not only is Kate’s mother in a wheelchair, she also hates the water.

 

Is Kate telling the truth? Is her stepfather, the former Police Commander, guilty of murder? Or is Riley allowing the sad vulnerability in Kate’s beautiful eyes to cloud his judgement?

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

MOC SILNA W CHRISIE TAYLORZE I W KSIĄŻCE TEJ JEST!

W 1973 roku George Lucas nabazgrał w swoim notatniku pierwsze zdania o walce galaktycznego Imperium z rebeliantami. Cztery dekady i ponad 40 miliardów dolarów później gadżetów związanych z uniwersum Gwiezdnych Wojen było więcej niż mieszkańców Ziemi, a wiara rycerzy Jedi stała się oficjalnie uznawaną religią.

Dzieło Lucasa wyrwało się z ram kina. Dziś jest jedną z najbardziej lukratywnych i wpływowych marek. Kompletna historia fenomenu Gwiezdnych Wojen nie została jednak nigdy opowiedziana. Aż do dziś. Trzymasz ją w ręku.

Chris Taylor – dziennikarz tygodnika „Time” i redaktor portalu Mashable – podąża śladami gwiezdnej sagi: od jej trudnych narodzin, poprzez burzliwe losy marki, aż po kontrowersje wokół najnowszego filmu. Dociera do ludzi, którzy pomogli przekuć pomysł Lucasa w legendę. Spotyka fanów i ludzi od marketingu, dla których Gwiezdne Wojny stały się sposobem na życie. Stacza walki ze współczesnymi rycerzami Jedi i majsterkuje z konstruktorami droidów.

Taylor szuka odpowiedzi na pytania, jak to się stało, że Gwiezdne Wojny przyciągnęły i zainspirowały miliony, i dlaczego będą rozpalać naszą wyobraźnię i zarabiać gigantyczne pieniądze przez kolejne pokolenia.


„Nie sposób wyobrazić sobie fana Gwiezdnych Wojen, który nie pokocha tej książki...” — Booklist

„Niezwykle zabawna opowieść. Taylor śledzi fenomen Gwiezdnych Wojen od narodzin pomysłu do szczytu popularności i mówi nam: «Spójrz tylko, jakie to ogromne!»” — Simon Pegg, aktor i fan GW


 

Trey Walker is living the high life. A successful advertising executive at the impressive Baker & Saddler advertising firm, he’s dangerously good looking, drives a vintage red Mustang and has his pick of women. Life couldn’t get any sweeter. Then Trey receives an urgent call from his identical twin brother and in an instant, his life changes…

 

Wade Walker’s life has never been easy. He might have been born with looks to die for, but so far things haven’t worked out. In and out of dead end jobs, Wade is resentful of his brother’s success. Even so, he’s always been able to rely on Trey and the night of Saturday, September fifth is no different. Only this time, things don’t quite go as planned. A woman has been raped and the police are asking a whole bunch of difficult questions. Trey is taken away in handcuffs…

 

Kiesha Munro has a reputation at the prestigious Sydney Legal law firm for being their best defense attorney, but her rise to the top has been far from easy. She’s an aboriginal woman working in a white male-dominated world and even in the twenty-first century, it’s taken a whole lot of hard work, courage and determination to get there. When Trey seeks her out to represent him against rape charges, she’s initially reluctant to take him on.

 

But then she hears Trey’s story and she’s convinced he’s been wrongly accused. She’s determined to do all she can to prove his innocence and at the same time, protect her heart. With killer looks and a body that would get any woman’s pulse racing, Trey Walker is dangerous, but not in the way the police think. Of that she has no doubt…
