"Fire on the flight deck!" Ominous words when living on an aircraft carrier hundreds of miles at sea. An American supercarrier flight deck is considered by many to be one of the most dangerous places on Earth; multi-million dollar aircraft launching, landing, and taxiing in the space of a few football fields, all orchestrated by a control tower and flight deck crew whose average age is 19. During the Cold War of the 1980s, this massive ship provided the largest, mobile weapon in the United States arsenal, instilling fear and respect among opposing forces. While the supercarrier can deliver an awesome display of firepower, it carries an inherent danger for those who fly and work among the aircraft. Brian Donley survived boot camp and completed aircraft firefighter school to serve as a yellow shirt on the flight deck of the USS William Halsey. Would his training, will, and courage equip him for the most challenging day of his life? Darren Sapp´s breakout novel delivers the sights, sounds, and action of a supercarrier. He served in the inaugural flight deck crew of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt as a crash crew member and yellow shirt aircraft director.

Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy - after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace. And that’s only one of her worries. In her pocket, Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving command: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find - and close - the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her? Annabeth’s biggest fear, though, is that Percy might have changed. What if he’s now attached to Roman ways? Does he still need his old friends? As the daughter of the goddess of war and wisdom, Annabeth knows she was born to be a leader - but never again does she want to be without Seaweed Brain by her side. 1. Language: English.

Harry Rose, last of the great American spymasters, has stepped to the helm of the Berlin station in the wake of the Second World War. From deep within a pulverized Germany, he launches his own renegade operation to avert World War III. But there are some within his camp who claim that Harry has finally gone too far, playing the game of nations from the bottom of the deck. Here is an inside story of the nuclear arms race - the politics, the passion, and the sheer lust for power. In short, here is a tale of elite Cold Warriors who lived and died by a dictum that reads: He who deploys a thermonuclear weapon is tantamount to God. This is the novel that elevated Dan Sherman to that ´´exalted plateau occupied by John LeCarré and Graham Greene´´. This is also the novel that inspired a whole new wave of espionage thrillers that will live in spy fiction forever. Other Dan Sherman thrillers from E-Reads: The Traitor, The Man Who Loved Mata Hari, The White Mandarin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Holland.

Paikea Simon trat aus dem Zelt des Commanders und spürte den Dünenwind im Gesicht. Die Militäreinheit hatte das Camp innerhalb von 24 Stunden errichtet, nachdem die Nachricht über alle Kanäle der Welt gegangen war. Seit Wochen sah sich der Norden Afrikas einer Klimakatastrophe bisher unbekannten Ausmaßes ausgeliefert, als Schneestürme über die Sahara herein brachen und vom Atlantik bis zum Roten Meer den Sand unter ihrer weißen Decke erstickten. Doch dies war nicht der Grund, warum Spezialeinheiten der AESCU Allianz Stellung bezogen hatten. Paikea schaute nach Osten und sah den Schatten des gigantischen Waldes. Wo einst die Stadt Khartum gestanden hatte, ragten nun Eichen bis zu einer Höhe von fünfzig Metern in den Himmel, empor wuchernd aus einem undurchdringlichen Dickicht von Eiskristallen. Dort, im Herzen dieses Waldes, lag ihr Ziel. Hamburg. Sieben Uhr dreiundzwanzig am Morgen. Das Schanzenviertel glich einem Szenario der Apokalypse. Der Sturm hatte Schindeln von den Dächern gerissen, und die Regenwasser, die die Straßen fluteten, trugen eine Krone aus schmutzigem Schaum. Das Fenster des Tätowierstudios, vor dem sich Konstantin Hansen und Bene Eichdorn trafen, erstrahlte in Motiven märchenhafter Anderswelten, die das Ende aller Ordnung in orakelhafter Präzision zu bebildern schienen. Der Mahlstrom hat den Blauen Planeten erreicht. Die Menschheit bricht auf. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Bernd Hölscher, Stefan Böhme, Katja Hoffmann.
