He who controls social media controls the world. A sinister force seeks to do just that, and nothing is going to stand in the way. All it needs is one final piece of the puzzle. When a disruptive pattern of social media outages escalates, bad-ass data forensics specialist Rachel Vaughn is called upon for her expertise, setting her on the hunt for an algorithmic key with the power to take down the entire global infrastructure. Guided by an otherworldly group of four, Rachel has been entrusted with the missing puzzle piece, and the bad guys know it. With Special Ops agent Grayson Blaine by her side, she outmaneuvers the enemy in what may prove to be her most dangerous assignment ever. Will Rachel find the key before the entire social media infrastructure is hijacked? And as the outages continue, can the world function without its social media fix, or is it too late? An unusual and intriguing serial that resists categorization, the Clairvoyant Serial is a modern-day morality tale about power in the age of global connection and social media influence. Carrying heavy baggage from her past, Rachel Vaughn leads the way in an intellectually challenging saga that features good versus evil along with significant moments of temptation. Part paranormal, part corporate mystery, and part thriller, the Clairvoyant Serial will take you on a crazy ride through what seems like perpetual chaos until the very end, when a final twist drives out unexpected clarity. The Key is the first installment of this five-book saga.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the exciting new thriller from the author of the internationally best-selling Intern's Handbook, a private airport security contractor becomes a counterterrorism operative and must stop an attack that will destabilize the US and cause global chaos. Kennedy - a private airport security contractor - knows more about airports than the head of the TSA, and he feels more comfortable in his British Airways Club World flatbed seat than in his own home. Haunted by the memory of his sister's death on 9/11, Kennedy takes his job and the protection of the American people very seriously. So when he's kidnapped and recruited into a CIA ghost operation known as Red Carpet, he jumps at the opportunity to become a civilian asset working with a team of some of the CIA's best counterterrorism analysts and spec ops soldiers as they race against the clock to stop the greatest terrorist threat the United States will ever face. Shane Kuhn's bold, darkly comic voice has earned him rave reviews for his previous titles, starting with Intern's Handbook, which was called "a serious guilty pleasure" by The Seattle Times and "explosively violent and psychologically wily the way a good thriller should be" by the New York Post. Shane brings that same intense voice and gripping storytelling to The Asset - an edge-of-your seat listen you won't be able to turn off. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Simonelli.

River of Night: Black Tide Rising, Book 6 , Hör...

A new novel in John Ringo's best-selling Black Tide Rising series. The sequel to The Valley of Shadows. Tom Smith used to be somebody. Now he's just another refugee, fleeing the smoking ruins of civilization. Well, maybe not just another refugee. Late of the Bank of the Americas where he used to be the global managing director for security, Tom and his fellow survivors watched New York City burn. His plan to the save New York long enough to find a cure for the zombie virus hadn't survived the bloody scrimmage between angry cops, cunning gangsters, and rapacious City officials. Now only millions of infected humans, driven mad by the highly infectious tailored rabies virus, inhabited the city. But Tom and some trusted allies were able to stay one step ahead and escaped offshore. Now they're holed up in a safe house in coastal Virginia and it's time to break out. Between him and his objective, one of the bank's prepared evacuation camps in the Cumberland Valley, are hundreds of miles of clogged roads, burnt-out towns, and howling mobs of infected humans who know only hunger. He must corral his motley team, complete with middle-schoolers, to navigate the treacherous landscape. And yet he feels his odds are good. But there's always someone smarter. And they like things just the way they are. Without a fat checkbook and the team of hired spec-ops mercenaries it used to bring, how will Tom Smith fend off entrepreneurial marauders, a brilliant sociopath or two, and a kill-count hungry member of the E-4 mafia? And if he pulls it off, no one is sure how they will they re-start civilization. But Tom Smith has the spark of an idea. 1.

“I LOVE THE GRAY MAN.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child   “BOURNE FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM.”—New York Times bestselling author James Rollins Praise for Mission Critical “This novel is vintage Greaney, with a tight plot, a ticking clock, and a sympathetic antihero…This is good, Clancy-esque entertainment. May the evildoers of the world have nightmares that Violator becomes a real person.”— Kirkus Reviews “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) “Greaney knows what military action fans want and delivers in spades.”— Publishers Weekly “Mesmerizing…Equal parts revenge drama and conspiracy tale, Mission Critical combines the best of John le Carré and Robert Ludlum. Greaney has fashioned a masterpiece of an action thriller, mixed with deep-seated global politics, placing him on level footing with the likes of Brad Thor, Brad Taylor and the late, great Vince Flynn.”— Providence Journal “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) Praise for Agent in Place “Reminiscent of John le Carré…Exquisite in its execution, the relentlessly riveting, “Agent in Place” firmly plants Greaney alongside Brad Taylor and Brad Thor as the masters of this thriller subgenre.” —Providence Journal  “Readers of the great Tom Clancy will salivate over this fast-moving and well-plotted yarn, which is part of a consistently appealing series in which each assignment is billed as the most dangerous ever. Somehow, Greaney cranks out one winner after another. That's a lot of work for the Gray Man and plenty of vicarious pleasure for thriller fans.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Greaney’s steady escalation of the risks that Court faces, and the exceedingly clever ways he tackles them, make this entry in the exemplary Gray Man series a can’t-miss.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for Gunmetal Gray   “Fans of RPG, Hong Kong action films, and high-octane storytelling will love the Gray Man, who battles full-bore through this fast-paced series.”— The Washington Post   “A nonstop barrage of action.”— The Memphis Commercial Appeal   “Jam-packed with action and adventure. It is as modern as tomorrow’s headlines and moves with fascinating speed from country to country.”— Lincoln Journal Star    “This one is fat, fast, and fun. Clancy’s spirit lives on.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Imperial Benevolence
37,90 CHF *

This is a necessary and urgent read for anyone concerned about the United States' endless wars. Investigating multiple genres of popular culture alongside contemporary U.S. foreign policy and political economy, Imperial Benevolence shows that American popular culture continuously suppresses awareness of U.S. imperialism while assuming American exceptionalism and innocence. This is despite the fact that it is rarely a product of the state. Expertly coordinated essays by prominent historians and media scholars address the ways that movies and television series such as Zero Dark Thirty, The Avengers, and even The Walking Dead, as well as video games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, have largely presented the United States as a global force for good. Popular culture, with few exceptions, has depicted the U.S. as a reluctant hegemon fiercely defending human rights and protecting or expanding democracy from the barbarians determined to destroy it.
