In this stunning and provocative domestic drama about a sweet 16 birthday party that goes horribly awry, a wealthy family in San Francisco finds their picture-perfect life unraveling, their darkest secrets revealed, and their friends turned to enemies. One invitation. A lifetime of regrets. Sweet 16. It's an exciting coming of age, a milestone, and a rite of passage. Jeff and Kim Sanders plan on throwing a party for their daughter, Hannah - a sweet girl with good grades and nice friends. Rather than an extravagant, indulgent affair, they invite four girls over for pizza, cake, movies, and a sleepover. What could possibly go wrong? But things do go wrong, horrifically so. After a tragic accident occurs, Jeff and Kim's flawless life in a wealthy San Francisco suburb suddenly begins to come apart. In the ugly aftermath, friends become enemies, dark secrets are revealed in the Sanders' marriage, and the truth about their perfect daughter, Hannah, is exposed. Harkening to Herman Koch's The Dinner, Christos Tsiolkas' The Slap, and Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies, The Party takes us behind the façade of the picture-perfect family, exposing the lies, betrayals, and moral lapses that neighbors don't see - and the secrets that children and parents keep from themselves and each other. 1.

The Bayou Killer: Life of Serial Killer Ronald ...

We could swear some people are incapable of murdering another human being. Serial killer Ronald Dominique, also known as the Bayou Killer, was such a man. With an exterior that seems almost normal, and some would say pitiful, this serial murderer was on a mission - not one anyone could have ever imagined....Some killers are truly surprising to find. Ronald J. Dominique is one such killer. Listen to this audiobook to find out about how he came to be one of the most terrible people to walk on this planet. They say that the perpetrators of the very worst of deeds are often the people you’d least suspect. This was certainly true of Ted Bundy: he was a handsome, charming man whom many liked and respected. It was also true of accused Canadian serial killer Bruce McArthur, who had many friends and was well-connected. No one expected that he might be capable of such violence. But then, what about Ronald Dominique? Nobody expected such things from him, either - but for slightly different reasons. It wasn’t because Dominique was charming; he was generally considered ugly and uncouth. Nor was it because he had a good job and was well-connected - he delivered pizza and worked as a meter reader. So why is it that no one suspected this man of doing such horrible things? Simply because he seemed too pathetic to pull them off. To those who knew him, he was just a simpleton eking out a meager existence - but Ronald Dominique proved to be much smarter than anyone imagined. Ending the lives of 23 men and evading detection for over a decade, he became one of the most prolific serial killers on record. In this audiobook, we’ll explore the startlingly complex machinations of that warped mind. Dominique was a misfit who never quite fit into normal society. For the most part, he was ignored and sidelined. As this slovenly character delivered your pizza and read your meter, he didn’t merit a second glance. But as this audiobook details, ther 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles D. Baker.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Here is a witty and revealing roman á clef about a woman who finally gets her dream job in book publishing, only to realize she's working for the industry tyrant. Claire Truman's life is in a holding pattern. She's spent six years languishing away at a top publishing house, waiting to be promoted to editor and stretching her ridiculously small salary as far as it will go. And, fresh from an ugly breakup, she's in the midst of her favorite moping strategy: eating her weight in pizza. But when her best friend drags her to an art gallery opening, her life takes flight. When she sees Randall Cox, the man she spent her entire college career lusting after, she can hardly believe her good luck. And when he marches over, strikes up a conversation and asks her to dinner, she thinks she's walking on air. The next morning, when the top editor at a rival publishing house calls her (at Randall's suggestion) with a job offer - complete with a promotion and three times her current salary - Claire believes she's getting everything she's ever wanted. But be careful what you wish for. Vivian Grant, her new boss, is even worse than the industry gossip led her to believe. From her middle-of-the-night phone calls, her impossible demands, the ridiculous hours, and her insulting and vicious verbal attacks, Vivian piles on the work and the abuse. As work demands more and more of her time and her soul, will Randall Cox remain her Prince Charming? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary Birdsong.

A leading behavioral economist reveals the tools that will improve our decision making on screens Office workers spend the majority of their waking hours staring at screens. Unfortunately, few of us are aware of the visual biases and behavioral patterns that influence our thinking when we're on our laptops, iPads, smartphones, or smartwatches. The sheer volume of information and choices available online, combined with the ease of tapping 'buy,' often make for poor decision making on screens. In The Smarter Screen, behavioral economist Shlomo Benartzi reveals a tool kit of interventions for the digital age. Using engaging reader exercises and provocative case studies, Benartzi shows how digital designs can influence our decision making on screens in all sorts of surprising ways. For example: • You're more likely to add bacon to your pizza if you order online. • If you read this book on a screen, you're less likely to remember its content. • You might buy an item just because it's located in a screen hot spot, even if better options are available. • If you shop using a touch screen, you'll probably overvalue the product you're considering. • You're more likely to remember a factoid like this one if it's displayed in an ugly, difficult-to-read font. Drawing on the latest research on digital nudging, Benartzi reveals how we can create an online world that helps us think better, not worse.
