Ruby und Ethan waren das perfekte Paar. Bis Ruby aus dem kleinen Beechfield nach New York zog, um ein aufregendes Leben in der Großstadt zu führen. Ein Leben, zu dem Ethan nicht mehr zu passen schien. Zehn Jahre ist das nun her, und Ruby hat erreicht, wovon sie damals träumte: Sie hat eine Karriere, eine Wohnung im East Village und einen turbulenten Alltag. Da bleibt kaum Zeit, nach England zu fliegen, wo die Traumhochzeit ihrer Schwester stattfinden soll. Und wo sie Ethan wiederbegegnen wird, der es mittlerweile vom Barkeeper zum erfolgreichen Geschäftsmann gebracht hat. Während ihre Schwester die letzten Hochzeitsvorbereitungen trifft, gerät Ruby ins Grübeln. Hätte sie damals lieber auf ihr Herz statt auf ihren Verstand hören sollen?

A mission gone wrong. A man alone in enemy territory. A legendary escape. A TRUE STORY OF COURAGE IN THE FACE OF IMPOSSIBLE ODDS SAS Patrol Bravo Two Zero was dropped behind enemy lines in Iraq. There were eight men. Seven were captured. This is the true story of the one who got away. Chris Ryan's epic escape took him across 300 kilometres of hostile terrain at the height of the Gulf War, the longest ever escape and evasion by an SAS trooper. Battling enemy soldiers, hypothermia, and a near-fatal lack of supplies on his way to the distant Syrian border, his experience has a special place in military lore. With an introduction by Chris Ryan detailing the aftermath of his extraordinary experience and how the former members of the patrol have fallen out, this is the definitive account of that fateful mission – with new documentary evidence that settles once and for all what really happened, and photographs censored at the time of the original publication. One of the most amazing and exciting true accounts of military action ever written, this is the book that launched Chris Ryan's career as a thriller novelist – but no fiction could ever be as exciting as the real thing...

The appearance of Zoë Wicomb’s first set of short stories, You Can’t Get Lost in Capetown , precipitated the founding of a fan club that has come to include Toni Morrison, J.M. Coetzee, Bharati Mukherjee, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and writers at the New York Times , the London Times , the Wall Street Journal , the New Yorker , and the Christian Science Monitor . Now, after two novels, Wicomb returns to the genre that first brought her international acclaim. Set mostly in Capetown and Glasgow, Wicomb’s new collection of short stories straddles dual worlds. An array of characters drawn with extraordinary acuity inhabits a complexly interconnected, twenty-first- century universe. The fourteen stories in this collection explore a range of human relationships: marriage, friendship, family ties, and relations with those who serve us. Wicomb’s fluid, shifting technique questions conventional certainties and makes for exhilarating reading, full of ironic twists, ambiguities, and moments of startling insight. Long awaited, The One That Got Away showcases this established, award-winning author at the height of her powers.

“The One That Got Away” By Kellianne Sweeney Everyone wonders about life after death. Most people tend to choose to believe in God, reincarnation, or the ghostly spirit world. Some choose something completely different. Others don’t choose to believe that there is anything at all. It is, however, a powerful question and one that ordinary people and scholars alike have struggled to define and explain now and throughout history. The wondering and hoping are timeless. I believe that ultimately, we just won’t know until we get there. This is a story. A story about how these beliefs could perhaps be connected. A story about a regular person given the opportunity to play with the big puzzle.
