Book Excerpt :

Cassie Hobbes and the rest of the Naturals are back in this exhilarating crime thriller, where Criminal Minds meets Heist Society-and this time a chilling copycat killer has the team in his crosshairs. Seventeen-year-old Cassie Hobbes has a gift for profiling people. Her talent has landed her a spot in an elite FBI program for teens with innate crime-solving abilities, and into some harrowing situations. After barely escaping a confrontation with an unbalanced killer obsessed with her mother's murder, Cassie hopes she and the rest of the team can stick to solving cold cases from a distance. But when victims of a brutal new serial killer start turning up, the Naturals are pulled into an active case that strikes too close to home: the killer is a perfect copycat of Dean's incarcerated father-a man he'd do anything to forget. Forced deeper into a murderer's psyche than ever before, will the Naturals be able to outsmart the enigmatic killer's brutal mind games before this copycat twists them into his web for good? With her trademark wit, brilliant plotting, and twists that no one will see coming, Jennifer Lynn Barnes will keep readers on the edge of their seats (and looking over their shoulders) as they race through the pages of this thrilling novel.

Book Short Summary:

A teen girl version of Dexter meets the high stakes danger and mystery of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in this “unique, beautifully twisted, and rich” (#1 New York Times bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout) debut. Lane is a typical teenager. Loving family. Good grades. After-school job at the local animal hospital. Martial arts enthusiast. But her secret obsession is studying serial killers. She understands them, knows what makes them tick. Why? Because she might be one herself. Lane channels her dark impulses by hunting criminals and delivering justice when the law fails. The vigilantism stops shy of murder, but with each visceral rush, the line of self-control blurs. And when a young preschool teacher goes missing—and returns in pieces—Lane gets a little too excited about tracking down “the Decapitator,” the vicious serial murderer who has come to her hometown. As she gets dangerously caught up in a web of lies about her own past, Lane realizes she is no longer invisible or safe. Especially after the Decapitator contacts her directly. Now she needs to use her unique talents to find the true killer’s identity before she—or someone she loves—becomes the next victim…

Book Short Summary:

Kolawole Oyeyemi’s insightful and witty non-fiction, ‘Kill or Get Killed: The Marketing Killer Instinct’, delves into the high stakes African business environment, as the author touches on the marketing intrigues, battles and wars that shaped a lot of brands across industries in Africa. Kill or Get Killed is a revolutionary marketing classic that borrowed the war metaphor and likened marketing to global politics and wars that are about shareholding struggles. Just as nations struggle for how much share of the world’s wealth they control, Brands and organizations go to war for shares too. Marketing wars and battles are fought, won and lost for increase, leadership and control of shares in various dimensions. Kolawole submits that in these wars, you either kill or get killed; excuses are too costly. Meekness is not a virtue for the battlefield. It is not an environment for the fainthearted. Gentlemen cannot survive the terrain. Therefore, you need a killer instinct to survive the several battles and win the war. Using some of Africa’s most famous brands and products to illustrate his points, Kolawole Oyeyemi convincingly show why some brands succeed where others fail. He unearths the fatal errors multinational brands commit; and also unveils the success stories of multinational brands that understood the peculiarities of the African business terrain and customized their corporate strategies and mode of operations to maximize value. The author explains why the future of successful marketing lies in creating brands, services, and company cultures and philosophies that inspire, include, and recognize the values, and the ever changing tastes and preferences of the target customers. Featuring an engaging, no-holds-barred wit, case studies and strategic depth, Kill or get killed offers a fresh perspective to marketing practice, and is a success toolkit for practicing marketers, brands, and companies that want to invest in Africa; and entrepreneurs that require marketing knowledge on the go.

A young woman's body is found on a pleasure boat drifting down the Stockholm archipelago. Her lungs are filled with brackish water, but how are her clothes dry? Then a man's body is found hanging from a lamp hook in his apartment--but how could he have hanged himself with no furniture to climb on? As Detective Inspector Joona Linna begins to piece together the two mysteries, what he finds will be a mere prelude to a dizzying and dangerous course of events. From the internationally bestselling author of The Hypnotist, The Nightmare is another spellbinding tale of Nordic crime, as the dark psychology of characters reveal how blind we can be to our own motives.

Book Short Summary:

From stately lawns and gentlemen players to Andre Agassi and Venus Williams: 65 great writings on tennis that chronicle the transformation of the sport. Since its inception, tennis has embraced traditions more patrician than plebeian. But times--and tennis--have changed. The game once reserved for royalty has moved from estate lawns to the concrete courts of the city. Old guard amateurs have given way to prodigies plastered with corporate logos. And while barriers of gender, race, and class have been shattered, the modern plagues of self-promotion, the paparazzi, and challengers of ever-escalating talent loom large. In The Right Set, award-winning novelist and editor Caryl Phillips presents a collection of writings on the remarkable evolution of a gentleman's pastime into a sport of jet-set players of athletic and psychological genius. Here are the stories of champions, from the Renshaw twins to "ghetto Cinderella" Venus Williams. Here, too, are volleys between tradition and innovation--debates on everything from etiquette and earnings to André Agassi's rejection of the customary tennis whites. Insightful, informative, wonderfully entertaining, The Right Set is as colorful and surprising as the game itself.

Eighteen-year-old auto mechanic Sawyer Taft did not expect her estranged grandmother to show up at her apartment door and offer her a six-figure contract to participate in debutante season. And she definitely never imagined she would accept. But when she realizes that immersing herself in her grandmother's "society" might mean discovering the answer to the biggest mystery of her life-her father's identity-she signs on the dotted line and braces herself for a year of makeovers, big dresses, bigger egos, and a whole lot of bless your heart. The one thing she doesn't expect to find is friendship, but as she's drawn into a group of debutantes with scandalous, dangerous secrets of their own, Sawyer quickly discovers that her family isn't the only mainstay of high society with skeletons in their closet. There are people in her grandmother's glittering world who are not what they appear, and no one wants Sawyer poking her nose into the past. As she navigates the twisted relationships between her new friends and their powerful parents, Sawyer's search for the truth about her own origins is just the beginning. Set in the world of debutante balls, grand estates and rolling green hills, Little White Lies combines a charming setting, a classic fish-out-of-water story, and the sort of layered mystery only author Jennifer Lynn Barnes can pull off.
