Retired Texas Ranger Captain Hank Tomlinson intends to spend the rest of his days raising cattle on his Broken Arrow Ranch, and nurturing his frontier town of Luck, Texas. But when the brutal murder and scalping of a mysterious drifter leads to a clash between cavalry soldiers and a band of Comanche Indians suspected of the killing, a full-scale Indian uprising seems likely. Worse yet, the murder of the drifter bears a disturbing resemblance to a string of killings Hank remembers from his distant and violent past as a Texas Ranger. Meanwhile, Hank's twenty-year-old son, Jay Blue, and his adoptive brother, Skeeter, find themselves on the trail of a valuable Kentucky mare who vanished under their watch. The trail leads them into the dangerous haunts of outlaws and vengeful Comanche warriors. Now Hank must attempt to keep his sons safe while trying to catch a murderer who he knows will soon strike again. His ace-in-the-hole is beautiful Flora Barlow, the tavern owner with a knack for detective work. Though rival lawman, Matt Kenyon, and competing rancher, Jack Brennan, complicate Hank's investigation, he and Flora slowly begin to uncover a crooked web of crime, deception, and murder. Dark secrets emerge, and everyone must choose sides as lawmen, outlaws, soldiers, and Indian warriors converge for a final, bloody confrontation.

This book is a reflection on what is was like to grow up in a traditional Chinese family in Malaya and Singapore in the l930's and 1940's and the cultural differences between that environment and life in Australia after moving there in 1954 for further education and employment, especially as Australia had then the White Australia policy, and was not the multicultural society it is today. It also comments on life and experiences working as an Australian Trade Commissioner in China in the 1980's and early 1990's when the People Republic of China began to open up to the West . His knowledge of the Chinese language and of the differences between Chinese and Australian cultures allowed him to have a more intimate insight into the so-called inscrutable Chinese thinking.

New-York-Times-Bestsellerautor Matthew Quick hat nach «Silver Linings» eine witzige und zärtliche Geschichte über Glück, Familie, Freundschaft, Trauer, Akzeptanz und Richard Gere geschrieben. Bartholomew hat immer bei seiner Mutter gelebt. Als sie stirbt, muss er plötzlich allein zurechtkommen. Aber das sagt sich so leicht. Bartholomew ist 39. Beim Aufräumen ihres Schlafzimmers findet er einen Brief von Richard Gere wieder. Darin ruft der Hollywoodstar zum Boykott der Olympischen Spiele in Peking auf, wegen Tibet. Der Brief muss Mom viel bedeutet haben, sonst hätte sie ihn nicht in ihrer Unterwäscheschublade aufbewahrt. Nun versteht Bartholomew auch, warum sie ihn in ihren letzten Tagen, als sie schon sehr durcheinander war, immer nur «Richard» genannt hat. Er beschließt, dem Schauspieler Briefe zu schreiben. Über Moms Theorie vom Glück, über Außerirdische, Buddhismus und die Liebe zu Katzen. Und über die junge Bibliothekarin, die er schon seit Jahren einmal ansprechen möchte. Bis jetzt hat Richard Gere noch nicht geantwortet, aber Bartholomew ist sicher, er wird ihm bei seinem Neuanfang helfen. Ein höchst unterhaltsamer und inspirierender Roman, der einen über die Gründe des Universums nachgrübeln und über die Kraft der Güte und der Liebe staunen lässt. Graeme Simsion, der Autor des Bestsellers «Das Rosie-Projekt», urteilte: «Die Sache mit dem Glück ist genau das, was ich von Matthew Quick erwartet habe: originell, fesselnd, erhebend.» 2015 wird der Roman in den USA von Jonathan Dayton und Valerie Faris verfilmt, den doppelten Oscar-Gewinnern des Erfolgsfilms «Little Miss Sunshine».

Once upon a time, on a long, slow trip to Scotland, a little girl named Katerina-Elizabeth tossed her oatmeal overboard—again, and again, and again. She was a picky eater, and oatmeal was her least favorite food. And once upon a time, a small worm, no bigger than a piece of thread, swam alongside an ocean liner bound for Scotland and ate bowl after bowl of tossed oatmeal. He had never tasted anything as wonderful as oatmeal in his whole life. A. W. Flaherty and Scott Magoon unravel the Loch Ness legend in this whimsical picture book for the picky (and not-so-picky) eater in all of us.

I had the honour of commanding my Regiment, the Moray Highlanders, on the 16th of June, 1815, when the late Ensign David Marie Joseph Mackenzie met his end in the bloody struggle of Quatre Bras (his first engagement). He fell beside the colours, and I gladly bear witness that he had not only borne himself with extreme gallantry, but maintained, under circumstances of severest trial, a coolness which might well have rewarded me for my help in procuring the lad's commission. And yet at the moment I could scarcely regret his death, for he went into action under a suspicion so dishonouring that, had it been proved, no amount of gallantry could have restored him to the respect of his fellows. So at least I believed, with three of his brother officers who shared the secret. These were Major William Ross (my half-brother), Captain Malcolm Murray, and Mr. Ronald Braintree Urquhart, then our senior ensign. Of these, Mr. Urquhart fell two days later, at Waterloo, while steadying his men to face that heroic shock in which Pack's skeleton regiments were enveloped yet not overwhelmed by four brigades of the French infantry. From the others I received at the time a promise that the accusation against young Mackenzie should be wiped off the slate by his death, and the affair kept secret between us. Since then, however, there has come to me an explanation whichÑthough hard indeed to creditÑmay, if true, exculpate the lad. I laid it before the others, and they agreed that if, in spite of precautions, the affair should ever come to light, the explanation ought also in justice to be forthcoming; and hence I am writing this memorandum. It was in the late September of 1814 that I first made acquaintance with David Mackenzie. A wound received in the battle of SalamancaÑa shattered ankleÑhad sent me home invalided, and on my partial recovery I was appointed to command the 2nd Battalion of my Regiment, then being formed at Inverness. To this duty I was equal; but my ankle still gave trouble (the splinters from time to time working through the flesh), and in the late summer of 1814 I obtained leave of absence with my step-brother, and spent some pleasant weeks in cruising and fishing about the Moray Firth. Finding that my leg bettered by this idleness, we hired a smaller boat and embarked on a longer excursion, which took us almost to the south-west end of Loch Ness.
