Think about the most wretched day of your life. Maybe it was when someone you loved died, or when you were badly hurt in an accident, or a day when you were so terrified you could scarcely bear it. No imagine 4,000 of those days in one big chunk. In 1978, Warren Fellows was convicted in Thailand of heroin trafficking and was sentenced to life imprisonment. The Damage Done is his story of an unthinkable nightmare in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, and where the worst punishment is the khun deo - solitary confinement, Thai style. Fellows was certainly guilty of his crime, but he endured and survived human-rights abuses beyond imagination. This is not his plea for forgiveness, nor his denial of guilt; it is the story of an ordeal that no one would wish on their worst enemy. It is an essential read: heartbreaking, fascinating and impossible to put down.

In Olen Steinhauer's bestseller The Tourist, reluctant CIA agent Milo Weaver uncovered a conspiracy linking the Chinese government to the highest reaches of the American intelligence community, including his own Department of Tourism---the most clandestine department in the Company. The shocking blowback arrived in the Hammett Award--winning The Nearest Exit when the Department of Tourism was almost completely wiped out as the result of an even more insidious plot. Following on the heels of these two spectacular novels comes An American Spy, Olen Steinhauer's most stunning thriller yet. With only a handful of "tourists"—CIA-trained assassins—left, Weaver would like to move on and use this as an opportunity to regain a normal life, a life focused on his family. His former boss in the CIA, Alan Drummond, can't let it go. When Alan uses one of Milo's compromised aliases to travel to London and then disappears, calling all kinds of attention to his actions, Milo can't help but go in search of him. Worse still, it's beginning to look as if Tourism's enemies are gearing up for a final, fatal blow. With An American Spy, Olen Steinhauer, by far the best espionage writer in a generation, delivers a searing international thriller that will settle once and for all who is pulling the strings and who is being played. An American Spy is one of The New York Times Notable Books of 2012.

En el verano de 1991, yo era una niña normal. Hacía cosas normales. Tenía amigos y una madre que me amaba. Era como tú. Hasta el día en que me robaron la vida. Durante dieciocho años fui una prisionera. Era un objeto que alguien usaba y abusaba. Durante dieciocho años no me permitieron decir mi propio nombre. Me hice madre y fui forzada a ser una hermana. Durante dieciocho años sobreviví una situación imposible. El 26 de agosto de 2009 reclamé mi nombre. Me llamo Jaycee Lee Dugard. No me veo como una víctima. Sobreviví. Una vida robada es mi historia, en mis propias palabras, de mi propia manera, tal y como la recuerdo. La piña es un símbolo que representa la semilla de un comienzo nuevo para mí. Para ayudar a facilitar comienzos nuevos, con el apoyo de la terapia asistida por animales, la J A Y C Foundation brinda apoyo y servicios para el tratamiento oportuno de familias recuperándose de un secuestro y las secuelas que dejan esas experiencias traumáticas —familias como la mía que necesitan aprender cómo sanarse. Además, J A Y C Foundation espera facilitar la conciencia dentro de las escuelas sobre lo importante que es cuidarse el uno al otro. Nuestro lema es: “Solo pídete a ti mismo que... ¡te importe!”.

DEAVER. DANGEROUSLY GOOD. You wait, desperately, for news of your daughter. At last, the door opens. But it is not the negotiators, or the FBI. It is her kidnapper. And he has a gun . . . Two days ago, life was normal. How did it end like this? Every crime scene begins at the end. To know what happened, you must work backwards, piecing together the events that came before. The ultimate thriller writer, Jeffery Deaver puts your brain - and your nerves - to the ultimate test with The October List, in a masterful mystery that unfolds from the end back to the beginning with many a breath-taking twist along the way. 'Deaver's most fiendish thriller ever. . . as the pace quickens and the story continues to backtrack, solid evidence, established plot points and sturdily built characters all begin to come undone, until what started out as an interactive game becomes a truly unnerving exercise in deception' New York Times
