Bestsellerautor Linwood Barclay ("Ohne ein Wort") ist zurück! "Lügennest" bildet den Auftakt seiner neuen "Promise Falls"-Trilogie: Drei Thriller, die sich mit den Abgründen einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt beschäftigen, deren Mitbewohner auch nicht vor Mord zurückschrecken... Für Promise Falls sieht es düster aus. In der Kleinstadt an der US-Ostküste gibt es kaum Perspektiven – und vor allem keine Jobs. Auch die Zeitung von Reporter David Harwood ist pleite, trotzdem steckt er seine Nase weiterhin in Sachen, die ihm merkwürdig vorkommen. Wie zum Beispiel in diese Geschichte mit dem Baby. Seine Cousine Marla schwört, ein Engel habe es ihr gegeben. Aber es sieht eher so aus, als hinge alles mit einem brutalen Mord am anderen Ende der Stadt zusammen. Und das ist nicht der einzige Abgrund, der sich in Promise Falls auftut. Linwood Barclay ist "ein wahrer Spannungsmeister." Stephen King

The Broken Brotherhood By: Nathan Sorenson Meet a man broken by life. Every time he scratches and claws his way to the top someone or something knocks him down. Meet Zelus at a time where he has given up and has decided to stop playing life by the rules. He has put his trust in laws and powers set by the kingdoms of Terabithia over and over again, and somehow he finds himself as a slave riding in a caravan in the desert to a life of poverty and backbreaking work. However, as soon as Zelus makes the decision to stop following the rules he is confronted by a new chance: something he has wanted since he was a child. It’s every young man’s dream to become a knight. This opportunity is thrust upon him. Follow Zelus and his friends as he struggles through the rigorous training required by the Jaborian knights, also known as the Broken Brotherhood. Over a decade ago the Brotherhood, who at the time had been the most elite military forces in the thirteen kingdoms, had been almost completely destroyed and has struggled to rebuild its ranks. For the first time ever the knighthood has been open to anyone, no matter their heritage. Zelus struggles to maintain his military barring and races against his past, while at the same time trying to control the darkness inside of him. Being born of dark blood, Zelus struggles everyday to control the demonic powers within. If anyone were to find out, he would be dismissed from the Brotherhood. Thieves, murderers, and rapists are welcome to change their lives in the Brotherhood, but someone cursed with bark blood would be refused instantly. Unpredictable and dangerous, any individual with dark blood would never be allowed in any military force with a sense of morality.

After fate leads them to finally meet in the school library, Dannie first tries to place Reed in the dreaded friend zone. But she too cannot ignore the obvious chemistry. As Reed teaches her how to find hope, trust, and even love, Dannie must decide whether to harbor her secrets or reveal the truth and risk everything. While she wrestles with her decision, Dannie has no idea that a secret obsession will drive another young man to stop at nothing until she is his and his alone. The Face You See shares the compelling tale of a teenage girl’s quest to free herself from her past where she finds hope in the most unlikely of circumstances, the courage to embrace love, and the will to defy all odds. “In swift and relatable prose, The Face You See juggles the many difficult topics and circumstances that young adults face.” —Foreword Clarion Review ***** “ ...those who have experienced or overcome traumas will find Dannie relatable and empowering ...” —BlueInk “It initially seems that this book will present yet another high school love triangle, but the plot surprises and unsettles those expectations. It moves past lighthearted teen drama to present a serious, emotionally affecting coming-of-age tale ... An engaging contemporary romance, whose conflicted, nuanced heroine helps it transcend the conventions of its genre.” —Kirkus Reviews
