Als Experte für Computersicherheit berät Hubert Jansen Firmen beim Schutz der Unternehmensnetze. Er ist ein White Hat – ein Sicherheitsexperte, der sein Wissen allein zu defensiven Zwecken einsetzt. Das ist eine Art, Hubert Jansen zu beschreiben. Da ist aber auch der Hubert Jansen, der gerade von seiner Frau verlassen wurde, der sein Kind vermisst, der nicht den erhofften beruflichen Erfolg verbuchen kann, und der finanziell mit dem Rücken zur Wand steht. Er entscheidet sich schließlich, sein Knowhow auf lukrativere Art und Weise einzusetzen. Im Laufe der Geschichte entwickelt Hubert Jansen eine beachtliche kriminelle Energie, mit der er unter Verwendung seines Spezialwissens gegen seine Widersacher vorgeht. Immer mehr löst er sich von seinem bisherigen Leben. Das Aufflammen einer alten Liebe gibt ihm scheinbar die Möglichkeit, sein Leben in eine andere Richtung zu lenken. Er ist zunehmend bereit, Risiken einzugehen, um endlich das Leben zu bekommen, das er sich immer erträumt hat. Mit einer neuartigen Angriffsmethode erhofft sich Jansen, mit einem Schlag all seine finanziellen Sorgen aus der Welt schaffen zu können. Jansen zieht mit seinen Aktivitäten nicht nur die Aufmerksamkeit der deutschen Sicherheitsbehörden auf sich. Seine privaten Probleme und eine Rückkehr in kriminelle Kreise führen dazu, dass sich das Leben von Jansen und seinen Gegenspielern für immer ändert. Am Ende hat sich Jansen in eine scheinbar ausweglose Situation bugsiert. Er muss erkennen, dass ein neues Leben nicht möglich ist, ohne loslassen zu können.

In this new Zamonian adventure, Optimus Yarnspinner, a young writer, inherits from his beloved godfather an unpublished short story by an unknown author. The search for the author’s identity takes Yarnspinner to Bookholm—the so-called City of Dreaming Books. On entering its streets, our hero feels as if he has opened the door of a gigantic second-hand bookshop. His nostrils are assailed by clouds of book dust, the stimulating scent of ancient leather, and the tang of printer’s ink. Soon, though, Yarnspinner falls into the clutches of the city's evil genius, Pfistomel Smyke, who treacherously maroons him in the labyrinthine catacombs underneath the city, where reading books can be genuinely dangerous. In The City of Dreaming Books, Walter Moers transports us to a magical world where reading is a remarkable adventure. Only those intrepid souls who are prepared to join Yarnspinner on his perilous journey should read this book. We wish the rest of you a long, safe, unutterably dull and boring life!

Modern-day teenagers meet a palace of terrors locked up since the French Revolution in this surprising and haunting thriller from Stefan Bachmann, the internationally bestselling author of The Peculiar and The Whatnot. A Drop of Night will thrill fans of Neal Shusterman and Jessica Khoury. Seventeen-year-old Anouk has finally caught the break she’s been looking for—she’s been chosen to participate in an exclusive program that includes an all-expense-paid trip to France and a chance to explore the hidden underground Palais des Papillons, or Palace of Butterflies. Along with four other gifted teenagers, Anouk will be one of the first people to set foot in the palace in more than two hundred years. Bachmann’s masterful scene-building alternates between Anouk’s flight through the palace and the struggles of Aurelie, who escaped the French Revolution by fleeing into the Palais des Papillons in 1792.

"A missing painting. A mysterious woman. Her husband and her lover... A brilliant and naïve young lawyer's life is changed forever when a painter and his subject--a breathtakingly beautiful woman--appear at his office in Frankfurt. The woman's husband is deliberately marring the painting of his wife he commissioned the artist to make. Now the woman and the artist want the painting back. Simple enough--or so it seems before the lawyer becomes enmeshed in the lives of this toxic trio. Love, theft, and deceit unfold in quick succession when the woman, and the painting, suddenly go missing. It will take a strange turn of fate and a natural disaster to reunite the lawyer, the husband, and the artist with the woman they all love, hiding out in Australia--and when they find her they will be forced to reckon with the lies and betrayals of their shared past."--

The book edition of Constitutions of the World from the late 18th Century to the middle of the 19th Century is the most complete and academically thorough collection of its kind. It contains constitutional documents from all over the world, written from 1776 to the end of the year 1849. This collection includes about 1,600 constitutions, amendments, human rights declarations, and draughts of constitutions that never came into force, from this period. These early constitutional documents were collected and examined in archives and libraries all over the world, as part of a project by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation). Using the original documents, experts from American and European universities reconstructed the authentic constitution texts for each country, and annotated them in their respective original languages. Each volume contains a short introduction, a main part with the edited constitution documents of a country, comments and an index. The unique value of the complete edition lies in its making all constitutions, from the early phase of modern constitutionalism, accessible in a reliable, authentic text version for the first time. These constitutions were widely scattered until now and, in many cases, unknown. In all, constitutional documents from about 50 countries in Europe and the Americas will be published in volumes for each country. Constitutions of the World from the late 18th Century to the Middle of the 19th Century is a unique and fundamental source edition and an extensive documentation of constitutional history. At the same time, it supplements the microfiche edition Constitutions of the World 1850 to the Present. The editor, Horst Dippel, is Professor of British and North American History at the University of Kassel, Germany.
