Raffiniert, abgründig, manipulativ - Intelligente psychologische Spannung aus der Feder der preisgekrönten irischen Autorin C.J.Cooke, die Sie garantiert bis zur letzten Seite gefangen nehmen wird! Eine Frau erwacht am einsamen Strand einer Insel im Mittelmeer, verletzt und ohne jede Erinnerung. Zum Glück wird sie von vier Freunden, von Beruf Schriftsteller und Autoren, gefunden, die diese Insel als Rückzugsort gewählt haben, um sich in Einsamkeit und karger Abgeschiedenheit ganz dem Bücherschreiben und Schreibprozess widmen zu können. Sie wollen sich um die gestrandete Frau kümmern, bis sie ihr Trauma überwunden hat, ihre Erinnerung zurückgekehrt ist und es ihr gut genug geht, um die Insel zu verlassen. Doch irgendetwas stimmt nicht mit den zwei Männern und zwei Frauen, das kann ihr unfreiwilliger Gast, auch mit Gedächtnisverlust, fühlen: Jeder von ihnen scheint etwas zu verbergen - und: Was wissen sie wirklich über ihren Gast? Zeitgleich sucht man in London verzweifelt nach einer jungen Mutter und Ehefrau, die am helllichten Tag spurlos verschwunden ist. Ohne Geld und Ausweis, ohne Koffer oder Auto, ohne Flugticket und ohne ihre Kinder. Sie ist spurlos verschwunden. Der Ehemann verzweifelt. Stück für Stück lassen die Ermittlungen die perfekte Fassade von Ehe- und Familienglück bröckeln ... Auf intelligente und hochspannende Art und Weise spielt die Autorin C.J. Cooke, die sich an der Universität in Glasgow mit der literarischen Gestaltung psychisch labiler Helden beschäftigt, in ihrem Psycho-Thriller "Broken memory" mit Themen wie Erinnerung, Gedächtnisverlust, Identität und Mutterschaft.

Batman has been one of the world’s most beloved superheroes since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Clad in his dark cowl and cape, he has captured the imagination of millions with his single-minded mission to create a better world for the people of Gotham City by fighting crime, making use of expert detective skills, high-tech crime-fighting gadgets, and an extensive network of sidekicks and partners. But why has this self-made hero enjoyed such enduring popularity? And why are his choices so often the subject of intense debate among his fans and philosophers alike? Batman and Ethics goes behind the mask to shed new light on the complexities and contradictions of the Dark Knight’s moral code. From the logic behind his aversion to killing to the moral status of vigilantism and his use of torture in pursuit of justice (or perhaps revenge), Batman’s ethical precepts are compelling but often inconsistent and controversial. Philosopher and pop culture expert Mark D. White uses the tools of moral philosophy to track Batman’s most striking ethical dilemmas and decisions across his most prominent storylines from the early 1970s through the launch of the New 52, and suggests how understanding the mercurial moral character of the caped crusader might help us reconcile our own. A thought-provoking and entertaining journey through four decades of Batman’s struggles and triumphs in time for the franchise’s 80th anniversary, Batman and Ethics is a perfect gateway into the complex questions of moral philosophy through a focused character study of this most famous of fictional superheroes.

Throughout the intervening years many comic book creators have had a hand in guiding her story, resulting in different interpretations of the Amazon Princess. In this collection of new essays, each examines a specific period or storyline from Wonder Woman comic books and analyzes that story in regard to contemporary issues in American society.

“A wealth of information about a variety of super-heroines and their comic book stories”—SFCrowsnest “Frankel discusses the journey of the superheroine in contemporary comics, movies, and television”—ProtoView “Frankel uses myth the way it was meant to be used, to help people understand how their lives fit into a larger world. She offers great depth of analysis in understanding how the mythic characters of comics utilize the standard mythic tropes. This is a must-have.”—Matthew Wilhelm Kapell, Exploring the Next Frontier: Vietnam, NASA, Star Trek and Utopia in 1960s and 1970s American Myth and History. The heroine’s journey echoes throughout ancient legend. Each young woman combats her dark side and emerges stronger. This quest is also a staple of American comic books. Wonder Woman with semi-divine powers gives us a new female-centered creation story. Batgirl, Batwoman and Black Widow discover their enemy is the dark mother or shadow twin, with the savagery they’ve rejected in themselves. Supergirl similarly struggles but keeps harmony with her sister. From Jessica Jones and Catwoman to the new superwomen of cutting-edge webcomics, each heroine must go into the dark, to become not a warrior but a savior. Women like Captain Marvel and Storm sacrifice all to join the ranks of superheroes, while their feminine powers and dazzling costumes reflect the most ancient tales.

A riveting work of historical detection revealing that the origin of Wonder Woman, one of the world’s most iconic superheroes, hides within it a fascinating family story—and a crucial history of twentieth-century feminism Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer Jill Lepore has uncovered an astonishing trove of documents, including the never-before-seen private papers of William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman’s creator. Beginning in his undergraduate years at Harvard, Marston was influenced by early suffragists and feminists, starting with Emmeline Pankhurst, who was banned from speaking on campus in 1911, when Marston was a freshman. In the 1920s, Marston and his wife, Sadie Elizabeth Holloway, brought into their home Olive Byrne, the niece of Margaret Sanger, one of the most influential feminists of the twentieth century. The Marston family story is a tale of drama, intrigue, and irony. In the 1930s, Marston and Byrne wrote a regular column for Family Circle celebrating conventional family life, even as they themselves pursued lives of extraordinary nonconformity. Marston, internationally known as an expert on truth—he invented the lie detector test—lived a life of secrets, only to spill them on the pages of Wonder Woman. The Secret History of Wonder Woman is a tour de force of intellectual and cultural history. Wonder Woman, Lepore argues, is the missing link in the history of the struggle for women’s rights—a chain of events that begins with the women’s suffrage campaigns of the early 1900s and ends with the troubled place of feminism a century later. This edition includes a new afterword with fresh revelations based on never before seen letters and photographs from the Marston family’s papers. With 161 illustrations and 16 pages in full color
