Miami´s best-dressed serial killer is back and on the prowl - at least he would be if he could shake off his permanent shadow. Ever since their paths first crossed, Sergeant Doakes hasn´t let Dexter Morgan out of his sight. Dexter may well be the Miami PD´s blood-spatter analyst, but Sgt. Doakes has a pretty good idea of how Dex likes to spend his free time, and he´s determined to catch him in the act. Dex hasn´t killed in months and is getting twitchy. To throw Doakes off his scent, he´s spending more time with Rita, his girlfriend. But no matter how many cosy nights they spend in front of the TV, Doakes is still watching. Then a body turns up, horribly mutilated and barely alive. To trap the torturer, Doakes and Dexter will have to work together - if they can trust each other. It´s a devil´s pact, and one of them will have to be the bait.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Lindsay. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000809/bk_orio_000809_sample.mp3.

For fans of Tayari Jones and Ruth Ozeki, from National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Rizzuto comes a haunting and suspenseful literary tale set in 1970s New York City and World War II-era Japan, about three strong women, the dangerous ties of family and identity, and the long shadow our histories can cast. Twin sisters Hana and Kei grew up in a tiny Hawaiian town in the 1950s and 1960s, so close they shared the same nickname. Raised in dreamlike isolation by their loving but unstable mother, they were fatherless, mixed-race, and utterly inseparable, devoted to one another. But when their cherished threesome with Mama is broken, and then further shattered by a violent, nearly fatal betrayal that neither young woman can forgive, it seems their bond may be severed forever--until, six years later, Kei arrives on Hana´s lonely Manhattan doorstep with a secret that will change everything. Told in interwoven narratives that glide seamlessly between the gritty streets of New York, the lush and dangerous landscape of Hawaii, and the horrors of the Japanese internment camps and the bombing of Hiroshima, SHADOW CHILD is set against an epic sweep of history. Volcanos, tsunamis, abandonment, racism, and war form the urgent, unforgettable backdrop of this intimate, evocative, and deeply moving story of motherhood, sisterhood, and second chances.

We switch. I bait. Let me help you snag a date. All through college, Blanche Carter was known as the matchmaker. Her friends came to her for the perfect pick-up line for that cute guy in chemistry class--or the best zinger for that annoying frat boy. Now out of college and living in Washington DC, she´s parlayed her talent into a unique consulting business: she runs the online dating profiles of the Capitol´s most eligible women. Armed with a battalion of dating rules, Blanche is an expert at helping her clients meet the right man--and put their best foot forward on that first date. But although she´ll happily spend her days messaging handsome strangers (and fending off dick pics) on behalf of her clients, Blanche´s most important rule is the one she has for herself: no relationships. Blanche has seen too much heartbreak to believe in love anymore. When one of the most annoying men she knows--Henry, a friend of a friend with whom she always ends up getting into heated political arguments--shows up as one of her favorite clients´ possible matches, Blanche gamely messages him. But sparks fly in more ways than one, and Blanche quickly finds herself faced with an ethical dilemma--and possibly breaking her own rule about love...
