The Black Book shows you how to beat the ACT, while the Red Book gives you real ACT questions to practice with. (The ACT Prep Black Book has no affiliation with ACT, Inc.) The Black Book and the Red Book are all you need to get your best possible ACT score. Why is the Black Book the ideal ACT book? It actually works, for one thing.

Der internationale Spannungs-Bestseller des Jahres 2019. „Ein seltenes Juwel: der perfekte Thriller. Dieser außergewöhnliche Thriller hat mein Blut zum Kochen gebracht." A.J. Finn ( #1-New-York-Times-Bestseller-Autor von "The Woman in the Window") Blutüberströmt hat man die Malerin Alicia Berenson neben ihrem geliebten Ehemann gefunden – dem sie fünf Mal in den Kopf geschossen hat. Seit sieben Jahren sitzt die Malerin nun in einer geschlossenen psychiatrischen Anstalt. Und schweigt. Kein Wort hat sie seit der Nacht des Mordes verloren, lediglich ein Bild gemalt: Es zeigt sie selbst als Alkestis, die in der griechischen Mythologie ihr Leben gibt, um ihren Mann vor dem Tod zu bewahren. Fasziniert von ihrem Fall, setzt der forensische Psychiater Theo Faber alles daran, Alicia zum Sprechen zu bringen. Doch will der Psychiater wirklich nur herausfinden, was in jener Nacht geschehen ist? Einen exzellenten, psychologischen Thriller hat der Brite Alex Michaelides, hoch erfolgreicher Drehbuchautor von "The devil you know", mit "Die stumme Patientin" geschrieben. Eine internationale Thriller-Entdeckung, die Fans von "The woman in the window" oder "Gone girl" elektrisieren und überraschen wird. Hochkarätige Thriller-Autoren wie A.J. Finn, David Baldacci, Lee Child, Joanne Harris und Black Crouch sind sich sicher: hier kommt DIE Thriller-Entdeckung des Jahres 2019. "Ein exzellenter, psychologischer Thriller: Elegant, clever und mit einer Wendung, die mich komplett überrascht hat (und um mich zu überraschen, braucht es eine Menge!) Hut ab vor Alex Michaelides. Bitte mehr!" JOANNE HARRIS "Absolut brillant ... "Die stumme Patientin" hat mir aufregende, atemlose und intensive Lesestunden gebracht - wobei ich das Ende nie vorhersehen konnte - nicht eine Sekunde lang." STEPHEN FRY „Intelligentes, durchdachtes Storytelling plus Hochspannung – ein hervorragender Thriller in jeglicher Hinsicht.” LEE CHILD

Licht aus dem Osten

«‹Eine neue Geschichte der Welt› – dieses Buch verdient den Titel voll und ganz.» Peter Frankopan lehrt uns, die Geschichte neu zu sehen – indem er nicht Europa, sondern den Nahen und Mittleren Osten zum Ausgangspunkt macht. Hier entstanden die ersten Hochkulturen und alle drei monotheistischen Weltreligionen; ein Reichtum an Gütern, Kultur und Wissen, der das Alte Europa seit jeher sehnsüchtig nach Osten blicken ließ. Frankopan erzählt von Alexander dem Großen, der Babylon zur Hauptstadt seines neuen Weltreichs machen wollte; von Seide, Porzellan und Techniken wie der Papierherstellung, die über die Handelswege der Region Verbreitung fanden; vom Sklavenhandel mit der islamischen Welt, der Venedig im Mittelalter zum Aufstieg verhalf; von islamischen Gelehrten, die das antike Kulturerbe pflegten, lange bevor Europa die Renaissance erlebte; von der Erschließung der Rohstoffe im 19. Jahrhundert bis hin zum Nahostkonflikt. Schließlich erklärt Frankopan, warum sich die Weltpolitik noch heute in Staaten wie Syrien, Afghanistan und Irak entscheidet. Peter Frankopan schlägt einen weiten Bogen, und das nicht nur zeitlich: Er rückt zwei Welten zusammen, Orient und Okzident, die historisch viel enger miteinander verbunden sind, als wir glauben. Ein so fundiertes wie packend erzähltes Geschichtswerk, das wahrhaft die Augen öffnet.
