Selected by Marcel Berlins in The Times as one of the 50 best crime novels of the last 50 years: 'Deon Meyer is acclaimed for his portrayals of crime and the police after the end of apartheid. Non-white detectives hold positions once monopolised by their white bosses, and the tensions are high' After 602 days dry, Captain Benny Griessel of the South African police services can't take any more tragedy. So when Benny is called in to investigate a multiple homicide, it pushes him close to breaking point - a former friend and detective colleague has shot his wife and two daughters, then killed himself. Benny wants out - out of his job, his home and his relationship with his singer girlfriend, Alexa. He moves into a hotel and starts drinking. Again. But Benny's unique talent is urgently required to help investigate another crime - the high profile murder of Ernst Richter, MD of a new tech startup, Alibi, whose body is discovered buried in the sand dunes north of Cape Town. Alibi is a service that creates false appointments, documents and phone calls to enable people to cheat on their partners. It has made Richter one of the most notorious people in South Africa. Can Benny pull together the strands of his life in time to catch the killer?

Sorry about That: The Language of Public Apolog...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

People do bad things. They misspeak, mislead, and misbehave. They lie, cheat, steal, and kill. Often, afterward, they apologize. But what makes a successful apology? Why does Joe Biden's 2007 apology for referring to Barack Obama as "articulate and bright" succeed, whereas Mel Gibson's 2006 apology for his anti-Semitic tirade fails? Naturally, the effectiveness of an apology depends on the language used, as well as the conditions under which we offer our regrets. In Sorry about That, linguist Edwin Battistella analyzes the public apologies of presidents, politicians, entertainers, and businessmen, situating the apology within American popular culture. Battistella offers the fascinating stories behind these apologies alongside his own analysis of the language used in each. He uses these examples to demonstrate the ways in which language creates sincere or insincere apologies, why we choose to apologize or don't, and how our efforts to say we are sorry succeed or fail. Each chapter expands on a central concept or distinction that explains part of the apology process. Battistella covers over 50 memorable apologies from McDonald's, Martha Stewart, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, Bill Clinton, and many more. Moving back and forth between examples and concepts, Battistella connects actual apologies with the broader social, ethical, and linguistic principles behind them. Listeners will come away from the audiobook better consumers of apologies - and better apologizers as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Yen.

Love blossoms in the unlikeliest places...Tarnation, Texas.Buzz Colt was a liar, cheat, and a scrooge, but the one thing he did right was father five sons. Growing up without a father, Baxter Colt learned how to be a man on his own. He’d written Buzz out of his life until he passed and left a few surprises and secrets - and hoops to jump through.Fury wasn’t a strong enough word to describe Baxter’s feelings when he heard the stipulations of his father’s will. Five brothers who are strangers are given the choice to live together for six months and work the Grinning Spurs Ranch or give up everything they’ve worked for - including their homesteads.However, that’s only the beginning. All five must be married before time is up.Since her mother was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s Disease, Abriella Craig was responsible for the family bakery and her little brother. Financially, she was strapped and emotionally and physically she was alone, but when a brooding, handsome stranger strolls into town, he might be the answer to her prayers.Abriella is as sweet as the cupcakes she creates and would make the perfect wife, but as secrets start to unfold, Baxter realizes he wants more than a marriage of convenience. But is he too much like his father to ever find love? The Colt brothers will each take a journey in finding love, brotherhood, and forgiveness in the small town of Tarnation, Texas, where love blooms in the unlikeliest places. 1.

Night Wind
66,90 CHF *

This is the story about a man that didn't straddle the fence of life. In everyone there is a combination of good and evil, that creates a tug of war within one's inner self. This is very normal and consistent from one person to the next. Therefore, some people tend to do more good than evil socially, and some tend to do more evil than good. All of this balance depends on the amount of good versus the amount of evil contained deep in the soul of a person's inner self. But this story tells of a man that possesses only one trait. This trait is 100% evil and inside this man there is no tug of war. He is everything that is left after all good has been stripped away. He has no conscience or moral values. There is nothing that this man won't do or say in his vicious chase for money and power. He can be best described as the total package for your worst nightmare. T.P. is the name that has been ordained to this man of evilness. T.P. carries within himself a deadly cheat and a vicious evil, which he conceals under a warm smile, a nice looking friendly face and breathtaking charm. He is king of predators and T.P. must be destroyed. The coldness and the evilness possessed by this man of darkness generate an atmosphere identical to a light breeze with cool chilling effects when first felt. This breeze can be best described as a Night Wind. Without further a do, prepare yourself for shocks and chills as the saga of Night Wind unfolds unto you.

Not George Washington
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

This early novel, written in collaboration with a friend, is a fascinating curiosity which suggests that Wodehouse might have become a very different, experimental sort of writer, had he continued to write in the same vein. Using multiple narrators, playing with literary stereotypes and identities, it tells the story of an aspiring young writer, James Orlebar Cloyster, prepared to do almost anything, first for success and then for gratification. By making Cloyster a mild, affable young man of the sort so familiar in his later novels, Wodehouse creates a comic disparity between the character's lofty professions of virtue and his unscrupulous behaviour. As the story progresses, we realise that he is not unusual: all the main characters are unscrupulous in one way or another, ready to cheat and lie in pursuit of their ends, hence the title of the book. Not George Washington contains many fine scenes, and Cloyster's narrative displays the calm mastery of story-telling Wodehouse had already made his own. If awkwardly executed, it is cleverly plotted, springing several surprises along the way. Clearly autobiographical in origin, it also invites readers to reflect on the nature of talent, fame, failure and success, villainy and honour - themes which continued to recur in the author's work for another sixty years.

Detecting and Reducing Supply Chain Fraud
56,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For most large organizations, the supply chain is a commercial advantage, enabling innovation, cost management and resilience. But the supply chain is open to fraud: the length and complexity of it creates opportunities for fraudsters to exploit phantom inventory, invent non-existent customers or suppliers, substitute one product for another, cheat on the quality...this list goes on. These frauds present a significant source of additional cost to the organization and expose it to a host of secondary risks: contract, compliance and reputation. Detecting and Reducing Supply Chain Fraud is a pragmatic guide to identifying and managing sources of risk. Norman A. Katz explains the main categories of fraud risk: what they are, what is their significance and how they are exploited by the fraudster. He also explores both the tactical and strategic approaches that you should adopt to help detect and reduce fraud, including detection techniques and the use of technology. He provides tactics for increasing your organization's resilience: increased transparency, appropriate governance, and engaging employees, customers and suppliers in more ethical work practices. If you are responsible for your organization's supply chain, or perhaps involved in audit, compliance or risk management, start using Detecting and Reducing Supply Chain Fraud and look more closely at every aspect of your supply chain, both internal and external. The savings made in fraud reduction, the increased resilience you will give all of your operations and the improved reputation that your business will enjoy, as a contract partner or amongst stakeholders, will repay your investment a hundred-fold.
