David Young's chillingly intricate Stasi Child was A London Times “Crime Book of the Month” and a Telegraph Pick of the Week. 1975: When Oberleutnant Karin Muller is called to investigate a teenage girl's body at the foot of the Berlin Wall, she imagines she's seen it all before. But she soon realizes that this is a death like no other before it - the girl was evidently trying to escape from West Berlin. As a member of the People's Police, Muller's power in East Germany only stretches so far. The Ministry for State Security, the Stasi, assures her the case is closed, all they need to know is the girl's name. Yet they strongly discourage her from asking questions. The evidence doesn't add up, and it soon becomes clear the crime scene has been staged. But this regime does not tolerate curious minds, and it takes Müller too long to realize that the trail she's been following may lead her dangerously close to home ...

" "Brian Panowich stamps words on the page as if they've been blasted from the barrel of a shotgun, and as with a shotgun blast, no one is safe from the scattered fragments of history that impale the people of Bull Mountain."-Wiley Cash, New York Times-bestselling author of This Dark Road to Mercy. The Godfather meets Daniel Woodrell in this Southern debut, a multigenerational saga of crime, family, and vengeance. Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made their home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, running shine, pot, and meth over six state lines, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family's criminal empire, Clayton took the job of sheriff in a neighboring community to keep what peace he can. But when a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms shows up at Clayton's office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and could lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction"--

In this gripping narrative, John Koehler details the widespread activities of East Germany’s Ministry for State Security, or "Stasi.” The Stasi, which infiltrated every walk of East German life, suppressed political opposition, and caused the imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of citizens, proved to be one of the most powerful secret police and espionage services in the world. Koehler methodically reviews the Stasi’s activities within East Germany and overseas, including its programs for internal repression, international espionage, terrorism and terrorist training, art theft, and special operations in Latin America and Africa.Koehler was both Berlin bureau chief of the Associated Press during the height of the Cold War and a U.S. Army Intelligence officer. His insider’s account is based on primary sources, such as U.S. intelligence files, Stasi documents made available only to the author, and extensive interviews with victims of political oppression, former Stasi officers, and West German government officials. Drawing from these sources, Koehler recounts tales that rival the most outlandish Hollywood spy thriller and, at the same time, offers the definitive contribution to our understanding of this still largely unwritten aspect of the history of the Cold War and modern Germany.

Ganador del CWA Historical Dagger Award en 2016, el más prestigioso premio para novela policiaca histórica del ámbito anglosajón Libro del mes por la sección de novela negra del Times. Cuando la detective Karin Müller es llamada para investigar la muerte de una adolescente al pie del Muro, al ver el cuerpo comprende que no se trata de una muerte más: la chica huía, sí, pero de la parte occidental. Müller pertenece a la Policía del Pueblo, cuyos poderes están de facto limitados por la todopoderosa Stasi. Por un lado le piden que descubra la identidad de la chica, pero le aseguran que el caso está cerrado y la animan encarecidamente a que se abstenga de hacer ninguna pregunta. Las pruebas no cuadran, y Müller enseguida se da cuenta de que el escenario del crimen es un montaje. Pero las mentes curiosas no tienen buena prensa en regímenes como el de la República Democrática Alemana, y Müller no se da cuenta de que la pista que está siguiendo la llevará por un sendero lleno de peligros que afectarán a su vida personal… Con reminiscencias de las obras de Tom Rob Smith y Philip Kerr y la película La vida de los otros, Hijos de la Stasi es una historia absorbente y excelentemente trabada, llena a rebosar de intriga, infidelidades y traiciones. En Berlín Oriental las preguntas son peligrosas. Las respuestas pueden matar. En esta primera novela, David Young ofrece una historia solvente y personajes bien delineados, destacando la feliz manera que tiene de plasmar el estado de ánimo dominante en la Alemania del Este en aquella época (y lo he cotejado con alguien que vivió allí), a mitad de camino entre el miedo y el orgullo “patrio”. The Times Uno de los mejores libros que he leído en mucho tiempo. Entrelaza de manera soberbia las dos tramas de la historia y refleja con crudeza la vida al otro lado del Muro de Berlín, un debut de órdago David Jackson, autor de Cry Baby Hijos de la Stasi es un gran libro, no solo por la historia que cuenta (llena de intriga, apasionante), sino también porque nos retrotrae con viveza a una época que casi todos hemos olvidado. David Young se ha documentado de forma exhaustiva para escribir el libro, y rezuma credibilidad por todas partes. tripfiction.com La lectura de esta novela me tuvo en vilo todo el tiempo. David Young consigue captar de manera maravillosa la atmósfera de un sitio. Es una historia de detectives buenísima, y arroja luz sobre una época ya pasada con unas implicaciones políticas fascinantes. Northern Crime

Veinte años del mejor periodismo de Julio Llamazares. «Entre chien et loup (entre perro y lobo) es como llaman los franceses a esa luz indecisa del atardecer que se produce cuando el sol ya se ha ocultado pero la noche no se ha adueñado todavía de la tierra. Pero entre perro y lobo es también una situación: la del que está a medio camino entre la domesticación y la libertad, que es en la que yo me he sentido siempre. No sólo en mi vida personal, sino también como escritor y como periodista. De aquí que haya elegido esa expresión para titular esta recopilación de mis artículos de prensa de los últimos veinticinco años. Que son los que, más o menos, llevo viviendo en Madrid dedicado en exclusiva a la literatura y el periodismo. Después de revisar uno por uno, después de releer los artículos, me reafirmo en mi opinión de mi condición ambigua, de escritor que escribe a caballo, tanto en prensa como en una novela, entre la imaginación y la realidad, de viajero, en fin, que mira la vida desde la ventanilla de un tren que cruza el paisaje envuelto en una luz que no es real ni irreal del todo. Esa luz que hace que el mundo no sea blanco ni negro, pese a que aparezca así en los periódicos». JULIO LLAMAZARES

By examining the Japanese history of buildings and building designs from prehistory to modern day, lovers of Japan will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of this island country. Simplicity, sensitivity to the natural environment, and the use of natural materials are the hallmarks of Japanese architecture. The Art of Japanese Architecture provides a broad overview of traditional Japanese architecture in its historical and cultural context. It begins with a discussion of prehistoric dwellings and concludes with a description of modern Japanese buildings. Important historical influences and trends—notably the introduction of Buddhist culture from Korea and China, the development of feudalism, and the influence of modern Western styles of building—are all discussed in detail as facets of Japanese design. Through all of these changes, a restrained architectural tradition developed in marked contrast to an exuberant tradition characterized by monumentality and the use of bold colors. The book provides tremendous insights into the dynamic nature of Japanese architecture and how it reflects an underlying diversity within Japanese culture. The book is profusely illustrated with over 370 color photographs, woodblock prints, maps, diagrams, and specially commissioned watercolors. A classic in the making, The Art of Japanese Architecture will be sure to enlighten and delight readers.

The thrilling sequel to Mason Cross' The Killing Season, a new and energetic crime saga featuring Carter Blake, a protagonist in the tradition of Jack Reacher, Alex Cross, and Jason Bourne. When the mutilated body of a young woman is discovered in the Santa Monica Mountains, LAPD Detective Jessica Allen knows she's seen this before—two and a half years ago on the other side of the country. A sadistic serial killer has been operating undetected for a decade, preying on lone female drivers whose cars have broken down. The press dub the killer 'the Samaritan,' but with no leads—and a killer who leaves no traces—the police investigation quickly grinds to a halt. That's when Carter Blake shows up to volunteer his services. He's a skilled manhunter with an uncanny ability to predict the Samaritan's next moves. At first, Allen and her colleagues are suspicious. After all, their new ally shares some uncomfortable similarities to the man they're tracking. But as the Samaritan takes his slaughter to the next level, Blake must find a way to stop him . . . even if it means bringing his own past crashing down on top of him.
