Der Erstling von Matthew FitzSimmons wurde in den USA ein riesiger Bestseller. Vor zehn Jahren verschwand die damals 14-jährige Suzanne Lombard. Spurlos. Wurde Suzanne ermordet? Oder von einem Pädophilen gekidnappt? Hält man sie seit Jahren gefangen? Als Suzannes Vater für das Amt des US-Präsidenten kandidiert, tauchen plötzlich neue rätselhafte Hinweise auf ihren Verbleib auf. Diese Spuren kann womöglich nur ein Mensch entschlüsseln: Gibson Vaughn, der mit Suzanne aufwuchs und die für ihn wie eine kleine Schwester war. Für Vaughn, Ex-Marine, Computerfreak, arbeitslos, wird die Suche nach Suzanne zu einer gefahrvollen Reise in die Vergangenheit. Stück für Stück setzt er das Puzzle zusammen, bis die entsetzliche Wahrheit am Ende sein eigenes Leben bedroht. Falls Sie ein Fan von harten Thrillern mit tiefen Emotionen in der Art von Lee Child, Dennis Lehane oder Harlan Coben sind: Zugreifen! The Washington Post: »FitzSimmons hat einen Soziopathen geschaffen, der es in sich hat.« Crimespree Magazine: »Ein höllisches Debüt ...« Matthew FitzSimmons aus Illinois, USA, wuchs in London auf. Seine idyllische Kindheit wurde 1977 erschüttert, als er die traumatische Erfahrung machte, dass sein Vater während der Vorführung von Star Wars schnarchte und er deshalb befürchtete, adoptiert worden zu sein. Matthew schloss ein Studium der Psychologie ab, obwohl seine ganze Leidenschaft dem Theater galt. Nach einigen Jahren in New York zog es ihn nach China. Dort schrieb er seinen ersten Roman (über den besser geschwiegen wird). Jetzt lebt er in Washington, D. C., und lehrt an einer privaten High School englische Literatur und Theater.

Warning This is an independent addition to The Short Drop, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTRODUCTION The Short Drop is a contemporary suspense thriller that covers many of the hot topics of today's headlines - technology, identify security, computer hacking, politics, and more. On one level it is an exciting mystery addressing the disappearance and likely murder of Suzanne Lombard. In the process of discovering what happened to Suzanne, the characters involved add even more layers of crime and intrigue making the situation ever more complex. SETTING The novel's events occur in three main locations, separated similarly to the book's structure. The most important events of the story in Part One take place primarily in Virginia, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas. The events in Part Two take place in Somerset, Pennsylvania (near Pittsburgh) and a few remote areas nearby. In Part Three, events take place in Atlanta, Georgia with some events occurring in North Carolina. While there is some deviation from this, Fitzsimmons focuses the major events of each section in these locations. STORY PLOT ANALYSIS The plot focuses on the efforts of Gibson Vaughn and a team of investigators to determine what happened when Suzanne Lombard disappeared ten years ago. As the story of their investigation unfolds, intricately connected sub-plots emerge providing the reader with a complex plot that is still easy to follow. As each layer of the plot is added, the reader is charged with keeping track of more characters, more information, and more connections. But Fitzsimmons tells the tale with clarity allowing the reader to remain engaged without losing sight of the action. The greatest tension arises from the fact that no character is quite who they seem to be and none of the characters can be completely trusted in at least some way. Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2015 All Rights Reserved

In E. M. Forsters Dystopie leben die Menschen in einer unterirdischen, abgekapselten Welt mit allem Komfort: Das ganze Leben ist durch die Dienstleistungen der »Maschine« perfekt geregelt. Die Menschen haben kein Bedürfnis mehr nach persönlichen Begegnungen, man kommuniziert nur über die Maschine, die über allem wacht. Ihr Handbuch ist zu einer Art Bibel geworden, die Menschen sind gefangen in ihrer absoluten Abhängigkeit von der Technik, die sie nicht mehr kontrollieren können. Doch nach und nach geht das Wissen, das hinter der Maschine steckt, verloren und das System wird anfällig für Pannen ... E. M. Forsters visionäres Werk wirft Fragen auf, die von großer Aktualität sind: Wie kann der Mensch seine Selbstbestimmung wahren gegenüber Maschinen, die immer stärker unser Leben bestimmen?

This guidebook collects the best 30 high fell walks in the Lake District. Every route is graded for difficulty and ranges between 7-23km, and includes annotated OS maps and variant routes. The walks are divided into 6 sections according to where walkers can start: the Keswick area, Borrowdale and Buttermere, the Western Valleys, Coniston and Langdale, Ambleside, Grasmere and Windermere, or Ullswater. The walks combine Lakeland classics with lesser-known adventures. From classic horseshoes, such as the Newlands Round and the Fairfield Horseshoe, and traditional ascents of England's most iconic mountains, including its highest peaks Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw, to routes onto some of the quieter summits including Gray Crag and Beda Fell, or quieter routes onto popular fells including Blencathra and Red Screes, the walks in this guide comprise all the best high-level fell walks to be had in England's largest, and beloved National Park. Covering both rocky terrain and grassy hills, with occasional boggy ground, most of the paths are relatively easy-to-follow in clear conditions, but may require good navigational skills when the clouds roll in. The guidebook also includes information to enhance your walking, from historical, geological and wildlife detail, to advice on travelling to and around the Lake District, and how to best prepare for an excellent day out on the fells.
