Gourmet Pet Chef Kitty Karlyle must draw on more than her TV presenting skills when the producer of a new cooking show is found stabbed to death.

Pet chef Kitty serves gourmet meals to pampered canines, cats, birds, snakes (ugh), Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs and most any other pet belonging to her wealthy and quirky L.A. clientele. This is a town where pets have their own psychologists, psychics and masseuses, so why shouldn’t they have their own chefs, right?

Kitty finds herself somewhat reluctantly hosting a new cooking show called ‘The Pampered Pet’ on CuisineTV. While shooting the pilot, the show’s producer is found in her office with a knife in her back – one of Kitty’s knives, to be exact. The list of suspects is long and time is short. If Kitty can’t find the killer soon, her own goose might be cooked . . .

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER •  Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, “one of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes” (The Washington Post).

BONUS: Includes a sneak peek of Lee Child’s new novel, Past Tense.

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

Suzanne Tyler barely knew her father. But when she’s given a series of secret diaries and eight mysterious photographs of women from his possessions, she knows she won’t be able to rest until she knows the truth about him. 

 

To Suzanne’s shock, one of the photos is of her friend Sophie, who died ten years ago in an unexplained and devastating fire.

But Don only met Sophie once, on an unsettling visit he paid Suzanne just days before Sophie’s death... So why did he have a picture of her?

 

Unable to let Sophie’s memory alone, Suzanne begins to dig into her father’s life. What horrors is she about to unearth in his diaries? And who is it that’s out there, watching her every move?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Länder - Mittelalter, Frühe Neuzeit, Note: 1,3, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg (Wirtschaftspsychologie), Veranstaltung: Modul: Wissenschaft macht Geschichte, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Karl der Große gilt als Symbolfigur Europas und Leitbild des idealen Herrschers. Franzosen und Deutsche bezeichnen ihn gleichermaßen als ihren Gründervater und betrachten ihn als Einer des europäischen Reiches, der das Fundament für eine gemeinsame religiöse und kulturelle europäische Identität schuf. Bereits in einer Quelle des Mittelalters, dem Aachener Karlsepos aus dem 9. Jahrhundert, wird er erstmals als „pater europae“, als Vater Europas bezeichnet. Das Karlsbild hat sich über die vergangenen 12 Jahrhunderte hinweg immer wieder verändert. Im modernen Europa des 21. Jahrhunderts wird der Mythos von Karl dem Großen als erstem Europäer verwendet, um den Einheitsgedanken Europas zu untermauern. Ausdruck findet dies in der Verleihung des internationalen Karlspreises für besondere Verdienste um die Europäische Einheit, die alljährlich seit 1950 an Christi Himmelfahrt in Aachen stattfindet. Es stellt sich die Frage, warum in politischen Reden zur Europäischen Idee und Integration Karl der Große als Identifikationsfigur herangezogen wird. Brauchen wir den Karlsmythos, um ein europäisches Zusammengehörigkeitsgefühl zu generieren? In dieser Studienarbeit soll die Idealisierung von Karl dem Großen als Gründungsvater Europas thematisiert werden. Inwiefern dient das moderne Karlsbild zur Schaffung einer europäischen Identität in Deutschland? Zur Untersuchung dieser Fragestellung soll im ersten Teil dieser Seminararbeit allgemein erörtert werden, ob Mythen in einem Sozialraum ein übergeordnetes Zusammengehörigkeitsgefühl generieren können. Zur Klärung dieser Funktionsweise wird zunächst dargelegt, was unter „Europäischer Identität“ verstanden wird und wie diese gebildet werden kann. Zweitens wird auf den Begriff des Mythos und seine verschiedenen Ausprägungen eingegangen. In einem daran anschließenden dritten Schritt wird thematisiert, ob es einer Leitfigur bedarf, um eine soziale Identität zu erzeugen. Auf Grundlage dieser Ausführungen wird im zweiten Teil das Fallbeispiel des modernen Karlsmythos beleuchtet. Zunächst wird illustriert, wie sich das Karlsbild im Wandel der Zeit verändert hat, um dann darauf eingehen zu können, welche Funktion der moderne Mythos von Karl dem Großen als Vater Europas im 21. Jahrhundert bei der Bildung von europäischer Identität in Deutschland erfüllt.
