In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder. Molly Appleby loves her job at Collector’s Weekly covering auctions and estate sales all over the South. When her latest assignment takes her to Richmond, Virginia, to interview the staff of the hit TV show Hidden Treasures, she’s expecting a quick, fun trip. But when one of the show’s appraisers is found murdered, Molly realizes that once again she’ll have to put on her detective’s cap until the culprit is captured. As Richmond locals flock to the show hoping their family heirlooms turn out to be valuable antiques, Molly’s busy behind the scenes interviewing the show’s staff and tracking down clues. When yet another staff member is killed and Molly herself is threatened, she’s determined to discover which of the expert cast members of Hidden Treasures might be hiding a sinister secret, because no matter how priceless, she knows that no antique is literally to die for. “I’ve read all the books in this series and am really hoping she continues to write more. I can’t speak more highly about these books. They’re unique, well-written, and incredibly enjoyable!” —Goodreads This is a fully revised edition of a book originally published under the name J. B. Stanley.

The first book in the terrific Antiques & Collectibles series by New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams. In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder. Molly Appleby is a young writer for Collector’s Weekly, and when the attractive reporter isn’t covering auctions and antique shows all over the South, she’s trying to get her new relationship with a coworker off the ground. When her latest assignment takes her to North Carolina pottery country to cover an exclusive kiln opening, she’s certain the show promises surprising offerings and rare finds. What she doesn’t expect to find is a dead body. George-Bradley Staunton is known throughout the antiques world as a very wealthy and very ruthless collector, and when he drops dead just after the opening, there are all too few mourners and a seemingly endless list of suspects. When the local police are stumped, Molly steps in to put her journalist’s nose to work sniffing out the culprit. But no sooner does she start collecting clues than another dead body falls into her lap. As Molly digs beneath the genteel surface of antiques and collectibles, she finds a world filled with backstabbing and competition, and what started as a story about rare collections might leave Molly with nothing more than a collection of corpses. “A very likable amateur sleuth . . . I’ll be happy to follow Molly on her future investigations.” —The Romance Readers Connection This is a fully revised edition of a book originally published under the name J. B. Stanley.

The Gray Man - Die US-Bestseller-Serie. Court Gentry ist ein guter Mensch. Und er ist ein perfekter Killer ... Er bewegt sich lautlos von Auftrag zu Auftrag und vollbringt Unmögliches. Er trifft immer sein Ziel - und dann, wie ein Schatten, ist er verschwunden: The Gray Man. Im Auftrag der US-Regierung hat Court die blutigen Jobs in Syrien und dem Irak erledigt. Doch zu seinem Entsetzen erfährt er, dass das Team, das ihn retten sollte, ihn nun beseitigen will. Es gibt Mächte, die tödlicher sind als Court Gentry. Und in ihren Augen ist er jetzt nicht mehr nützlich. Lee Child: 'Hart, rasant und unerbittlich - genau so muss ein Thriller sein.'

Der Kalte Krieg ist seit über zwanzig Jahren vorbei, doch das postsowjetische Russland sucht noch immer nach einer neuen Identität. Während man im Westen nach wie vor von der Gorbatschow-Zeit schwärmt, will man sie in Russland am liebsten vergessen. Inzwischen gilt Stalin dort vielen, auch unter den Jüngeren, wieder als großer Staatsmann, wie überhaupt die sozialistische Vergangenheit immer öfter nostalgisch verklärt wird. Für Swetlana Alexijewitsch leben die Russen gleichsam in einer Zeit des "secondhand", der gebrauchten Ideen und Worte. Wie ein vielstimmiger Chor erzählen die Menschen in ihrem neuen Buch von der radikalen gesellschaftlichen Umwälzung in den zurückliegenden Jahren.
