Inspector Cockrill’s dull vacation is jolted by a Mediterranean murderFrom the moment he steps on the plane, Inspector Cockrill loathes his fellow travelers. They are typical tour group bores: the dullards of England whom he had hoped to escape by going to Italy. He gives up on the trip immediately, burying his nose in a mystery novel to ensure that no one tries to become his friend. But not long after the group makes landfall at the craggy isle of San Juan el Pirata, a murder demands his attention. The body of a woman is found laid out carefully on her bed, blood pooled around her and fingers wrapped around the dagger that took her life. The corrupt local police force, impatient to find a killer, names Cockrill chief suspect. To escape the Italian hangman, the detective must find out who would go on vacation to kill a stranger.

The world’s most challenging athletic endeavour is also one of the biggest and most popular annual sports events in the world. The 2005 race witnessed Texan Lance Armstrong clinch his seventh Tour de France victory - something that no other rider has achieved in the event’s 100-year history. This book will look into the unprecedented build up to the Tour, focusing on Armstrong’s season and on the physical and mental limits of endurance through which he forced himself. Starting off in February when he made his annual move to Girona in Spain where preparation for the Tour becomes all-consuming, all the details of his hypermasochistic training regime will be unveiled, from sleeping in an altitude tent to the miles of gruelling riding through the pain barrier. This ‘inside story’ will also involve access to Armstrong’s US Postal Service Team and key rivals in the battle for the Yellow Jersey - among them German Jan Ulrich, American Tyler Hamilton, and Spaniard Joseba Beloki. Above all, Armstrong’s motivational strengths and burning desire to achieve will be the focus of a book that celebrates a unique sporting phenomenon. It promises to be a fascinating look at history in the making and the colourful world of pro cycling.

Rising from an inner city background, abandoned by his pro cyclist father as a toddler, Bradley Wiggins became a prodigious talent. World Junior Champion, World Champion and Olympic Champion were all titles that came his way at a startlingly young age, but what he really wanted was success on the road. 'Wiggo's' reinvention on the path to becoming Britain's first Tour de France winner in over a hundred years of racing is one of sport's most uplifting and inspiring stories. In this captivating and insightful narrative, Wiggins' old friend and colleague John Deering sets this remarkable story against the backdrop of Wiggins' crushing Tour victory, his races along the thousands of kilometres of French tarmac, telling the tale of his brutal procession from Liege to Paris in counterpoint to his fascinating life. From a Kilburn council estate to the Champs Elysees via the Olympics, Paul Weller and the world's most glorious sideburns, the legend of Bradley Wiggins is unravelled like never before.

Die zehnjährige Karen Reyes führt ein ganz besonderes Tagebuch: Neben ihren Alltagsbeobachtungen zeichnet sie Monster aus Trash-Horrorfilmen und alten Pulp-Magazinen. So bewältigt sie ihren Alltag in den USA der 1960er-Jahre und sammelt Spuren und Hinweise, die zur Aufklärung des Mordes an ihrer Nachbarin Anka Silverberg beitragen sollen. Emil Ferris verarbeitet in Am liebsten mag ich Monster ihre eigene Vorliebe für Horror-B-Movies und Grusel- Groschenhefte und bettet dies in eine Geschichte ein, die die sozialen Spannungen im Chicago der 1960er Jahre mit einer Geschichte des Erwachsenwerdens verknüpft. Fantastisches Artwork! Für den Hugo Award nominiert! Der Überraschungserfolg aus den USA!
