Derek Vaughn is a little too serious. He’s a type-A controlling personality with a penchant for order and a love of water polo. But he’s determined to enjoy his last year of college. The real world with a serious job and big expectations can wait for a few months. He’s going soak up every minute on campus with his friends and teammates before he moves on. The only possible kink in his plan is the new guy on the team...also known as his nemesis. Gabe Chadwick has big Olympic dreams. His transfer between Southern California universities has nothing to do with scholastics. The degree is his backup plan. He’s not there to party or make friends. And he certainly isn’t going to announce his sexuality. But he can’t deny there’s something special about the uptight team captain. However, when an unwitting friendship and mutual attraction collide, both will have to decide if this is the real thing or if they’re about to lose it all in the deep. 1. Language: English.

Diary of a Madman , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 379min

Dear Diary, Today I slit the throat of a man named Carl Bishop.... What do you do when you can't stop yourself from killing those who you believe are the scum of society? When the inside information you're receiving about your targets is coming from a mysterious source seemingly inside of law enforcement? But more importantly, how do you know if you've gone insane? Diary of a Madman is a suspense-filled, splatterpunk symphony of hardcore violence and sex wrapped in a tight-as-nails noir narrative about loss of self. Told in a casual first person style, Diary of a Madman details one man's fixation with infamous serial killers such as John Wayne Gacy, Harv "The Hammer" Carignan, The Genessee River Killer, and Andrew Cunanan, and his obsession with catching the serial murderer known as the "Interstate Slasher". During the day, he hides behind his bland persona as a salesman but outside of the office politics he is very serious about his "hobby". However, as he kills more victims, his world begins to unravel around him, and what he finds on his murder and sex-fueled journey will shock you right to the very last minute. 1. Language: English.

Meet filmmaker Barney Kettle, who liked to invent stories but found a real one under his nose. Barney Kettle knew he would be a very famous film director one day, he just didn't know when that day would arrive. He was already an actual director - he'd made four 15-minute films - but so far only his schoolmates and the residents of the High Street had viewed them. Global fame was a little way off. It would come, though. Barney was certain about that.... So begins the manuscript written from the hospital bed of an unnamed man. He has written it over many months as he recovers from serious injuries sustained in a city wide catastrophe. He has written so he can remember the street where he lived, home to a cavalcade of interesting people, singular shops, and curious stories. He has written so he can remember the summer before he was injured, the last days of a vanished world. Above all, he has written so he can remember the inimitable Barney Kettle, filmmaker, part-time dictator, questing brain, theatrical friend; a boy who loved to invent stories but found a real one under his nose; a boy who explored his neighbourhood with camera in hand and stumbled on a mystery that changed everything.... 1.

Leading politician and best-selling author Newt Gingrich and novelist Pete Earley are back with another gripping international thriller. A terrorist drives an explosive-packed rental truck into Major Brooke Grant's Washington, DC wedding, intending to detonate a deadly bomb. Saved by a last-minute fluke, Brooke seeks revenge against the master terrorist responsible, an international radical Islamist known only as the Falcon, who is determined to murder her, bring America to its knees, and create a modern-day caliphate. An unorthodox, newly sworn-in president recruits Brooke to join a clandestine CIA team in pursuit of the Falcon. With help from an odd coupling - a Saudi intelligence officer and an Israeli Mossad agent - Brooke goes after her elusive zealot nemesis. But before the trio can close in on their target, they discover that America's worst nightmare has come true. Intertwined with backroom Washington political intrigue, Vengeance is a fast-paced, realistic thriller that entertains while raising serious questions about our national security, the power of religious faith to inspire good and evil, the consequences of revenge, and the validity of our constitutional safeguards. Former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich and Washington Post reporter turned novelist Pete Earley are at their best in this third installment of their best-selling Brooke Grant series. 1.
