India is in the throes of transition-from a primarily feudal agrarian society to a modern, industrial one. For the transition to be successful, however, Markandey Katju says that the country needs to rid itself of the ills of the feudal days. But perturbed by the growing incidents of communalism, racial and lingual strife, corruption and persisting issues of poverty, casteism and unemployment, he is sceptical of the change arriving anytime soon. He argues that this turbulent transition might last for another twenty-odd years. In this timely collection of his views, Katju suggests that influential politicians and their governance are not enough, but a scientific mission for national reconstruction is the need of the hour to bring India into its own as a developed and egalitarian society. In his trademark no-holds-barred approach, the author holds up a mirror to the citizens of India and where they could be headed-so that from the dark times emerges a shining vision of the nation its people deserve. His forthright and unreserved views in The Shape of Things to Come give an important perspective to judge India´s future.

In this book, his first full-length nonfiction work, it´s as if Devlin O´Neill at last decides to open a beer and sit down to tell a couple of close friends absolutely everything about the focal subject of his life, the topic they have been curious about for years. He seems to know that what he is about to say will be received as fascinating and extremely helpful and somewhat titillating, in the best sense of the word. Although he does not quite lecture, he speaks with the fine authority and command that is the O´Neill hallmark and not as if he is addressing someone on the level of a naughty boy trying to get a glimpse of a girl´s panties. His elegance of language shines through and sets up his listeners to be on their best behavior in the presence of a gentleman, and then he slips in words and phrases that let them know it is all right to grin and to tingle and to squirm a little - and his listeners are just sure that he knows exactly when they do each of these. Spank Her! is an informative, fast-paced, lighthearted romp through Devlin O´Neill´s more or less real-life world. Part opinion piece, part sociological treatise, part psychobabble mega-essay, this book rips the tearaway knickers off the shadowy realm that is consensual adult spanking in the 21st century with a smile and a wink and a kiss on the bottom. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Devlin O´Neill. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/037411/bk_acx0_037411_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

16-year-old Mehreen Miah´s anxiety and depression, or ´Chaos´, as she calls it, has taken over her life, to the point where she can´t bear it any more. So she joins MementoMori, a website that matches people with partners and allocates them a date and method of death, ´the pact´. Mehreen is paired with Cara Saunders and Olivia Castleton, two strangers dealing with their own serious issues. As they secretly meet over the coming days, Mehreen develops a strong bond with Cara and Olivia, the only people who seem to understand what she´s going through. But ironically, the thing that brought them together to commit suicide has also created a mutually supportive friendship that makes them realise that, with the right help, life is worth living. It´s not long before all three want out of the pact. But in a terrifying twist of fate, the website won´t let them stop, and an increasingly sinister game begins, with MementoMori playing the girls off against each other. A pact is a pact, after all. In this powerful debut written in three points of view, Yasmin Rahman has created a moving, poignant novel celebrating life. ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID is about friendship, strength and survival.

Isabel Dalhousie now has a second child - another boy, Magnus. He comes home with her at the beginning of the book and she discovers that Charlie is far from thrilled. He sees no need for a new baby. In Cat´s delicatessen, Isabel meets a woman with whom she had been at school. This woman, Bea Shand, is known as an enthusiastic match-maker. She is very worried, though, as she has introduced a woman she knows to a plastic surgeon who is now described by another friend as a gold-digger. This other friend reveals that the surgeon has a bad track record: he has been involved with a series of well-off women and has succeeded in separating a number of then from their money. Bea asks Isabel to investigate; she herself tried to warn her friend of the danger she was in but was rebuffed badly. Isabel starts to make enquiries. At first the pattern that emerges confirms her friend´s dire diagnosis, but as things develop it emerges that not only is the surgeon innocent, but he himself is the one in danger! In the meantime, as a sub-plot, Isabel finds that the man who warned her of the surgeon´s proclivities, is taking an interest in her (Isabel). He appears to be smitten by her; she tries to get away from him but discovers that she has inadvertently given Jamie grounds to believe that she (Isabel) is having an affair. This is awkward, but is resolved satisfactorily. Her final conclusion: match-make at one´s peril. Never tell people half-truths for paternalistic reasons. Mind your own business (a lesson that Isabel never seems to learn).

A hair-raising, atmospheric thriller from the acclaimed author of the ´´ripping good´´ (The New York Times) novel Three Graves Full, inspired by the real-life unsolved theft of a seventeenth-century painting. Twenty-eight seconds. In less than half a minute, a home-security camera captures the hidden resolve in fourteen-year-old Carly Liddell as she fends off a vicious attack just inside her own front door. The video of her heroic escape appears online and goes viral. As the view count climbs, the lives of four desperate people will be forever changed by what´s just barely visible in the corner of the shot. Carly´s stepfather is spurred to protect his darkest secret: how a stolen painting—four hundred years old, by a master of the Dutch Golden Age—has come to hang in his suburban foyer. The art dealer, left for dead when the painting vanished, sees a chance to buy back her life. And the double-crossed enforcer renews the hunt to deliver the treasure to his billionaire patrons—even if he has to kill to succeed. But it´s Carly herself, hailed as a social-media hero, whose new perspective gives her the courage to uncover the truth as the secrets and lies tear her family apart.
