Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nominiert für den Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2008 Mike Nelson, wegen seiner Körperfülle Moo genannt, lässt Beleidigungen und Prügel, die er in der Schule als verachteter Außenseiter oft einsteckt, an sich abprallen wie Regen. Sein Zufluchtsort ist eine Autobahnbrücke, von der aus er den Verkehr beobachtet, sich an Lichtern und Bewegungen berauscht. Dabei wird er Zeuge eines Vorfalls, den er nicht deuten kann: Ein Wagen drängt einen anderen ab, die Fahrer halten auf dem Standstreifen, geraten in Streit, ein Mann geht zu Boden. Später werden die Ermittlungsbehörden behaupten, der Fahrer des abgedrängten Wagens habe den anderen erstochen. Moo aber hat genau gesehen, dass das nicht stimmt. Da es sich bei dem Beschuldigten um den berüchtigten Kriminellen Keith Vine handelt, den die Staatsanwaltschaft schon lange dingfest machen will, ist die Sache äußerst brisant: Was Moo gesehen hat, macht ihn zum Entlastungszeugen für Vine – doch will er das überhaupt sein?

Download or read book Night Train written by Todd Walton and published by Catapult. This book was released on 2012-10-24 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Walton tracks the fate of Lily and Charlie, two down–and–out musicians on the run from an army of "very well–connected" thugs out not just for blood but for spirit. Fleeing by car, foot, air, bicycle, train, covered wagon and dirigible, the two make their way with Lily's baby from Sunset Boulevard to a mountain retreat in Oregon. Eluding all manner of physical and mental danger, Lily and Charlie take their final stand with a commune of utopian artists. Their odyssey is seedily realistic, wildly surrealistic, often erotic and only occasionally a bit precious. What seemed like a simple pursuit story has become an engaging parable of the responsibilities of creativity, the nature of self–worth, the redemptive power of love—perhaps the Meaning of Life itself. Night Train evokes a paranoid romanticism reminiscent of Craig Nova, Don DeLillo and Thomas Pynchon. – Tom Nolan, Los Angeles Times

Basking in bridal bliss, Ashly feels she is living the perfect fairytale, until she’s faced with a runaway groom, dumped at the altar by bad-boy fiancé, Jake Connors. Five years later, Jake steps back into her life, realizing that being a no-show for their nuptials was the worst mistake of his life. A little older and slightly more mature, he is ready to fight for Ashly’s love once again. When Ashly sees him, she can’t deny the attraction she feels, but her hormones are overruled by the horror of what he did to her in the past. Nevertheless, Jake’s most potent weapon, those dazzling baby blues, ignites a spark in Ashly, no matter how angry she wants to be. She cannot deny the spark, and she only hopes the inferno it ignites will not consume her heart again. According to the terms of her mother’s will, Ashly cannot cash in on her inheritance until she and Jake travel to nearly a dozen locations around the globe. The thought of pairing up with her old flame makes her blood boil, but she has little choice other than to put up with her despicable ex. Can Ashly put up with Jake through her globe-hopping scavenger hunt to get her family fortune? Will she ever be able to forget or forgive being dumped on her wedding day?
