But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age - but enjoy the benefits of youth? This groundbreaking audiobook holds the answer.

Our gut bugs - the bacteria that make up the microbiome - largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimers to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the drivers seat, controlling our quality of life as we age. The good news is, its never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them - and you - thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.

Jack Reacher returns in the latest fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child. "You can leave the army, but the army doesnt leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them. And after 15 years in prison, hes out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G-8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin. If anyone can stop Kott, its the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though hed rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But theyre facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses - and no backup if theyre caught. All the while Reacher cant stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he wont let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice. Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.

Lee Child once again demonstrates his mastery of the thriller genre with an unbeatable collection of three Jack Reacher novellas and six short stories, together for the first time in one pulse-pounding collection from the New York Times best-selling author. Too Much Time: In this original novella featuring Jack Reacher after his time in the army, Reacher finds himself in a hollowed-out town in Maine. He witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime, in a tale that leads into Lee Child's new Reacher novel, The Midnight Line. Small Wars: Lee Child goes back to 1989, when Jack Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the cold-blooded murder of a young officer. The telex is brief and to the point: one active-duty personnel found shot to death 10 miles north of Fort Smith. Circumstances unknown. The victim was shot twice in the chest and once in the head. A professional hit. The crime scene suggests an ambush. Military police officer Jack Reacher is given the case. He calls his older brother, Colonel Joe Reacher, at the Pentagon for intel and taps Sergeant Frances Neagley to help him answer the big question: Who would kill a brilliant officer on the fast track to greatness? Not a Drill: Jack Reacher is on the road, hitching a ride with some young Canadians who are planning a hike through the dense forests of Maine. They part ways after sharing a hot meal, and Reacher checks out a quiet town surrounded by countryside serene enough to cool even his raging wanderlust. But not for long. First the trail is suddenly closed. Then the military police show up in force. Maybe it's a drill. Or maybe it's trouble - the kind of trouble that always finds Reacher, no matter how far he travels off the beaten path. And for the first time on audio, additional stories featuring Jack Reacher, including "James Penney's New Identity", "Everyone Talks", "Maybe They Have a Tradition", "Guy Walks into a Bar", "No Room at the Motel", and "The Picture of the Lonely Diner".

The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina hot-sheets motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation cant be controlled. Within hours the generals wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall. Two Special Forces soldiers - the toughest of the tough - are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the US Army, Jack Reacher - an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit - is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have. But Reacher wont quit. Hes fighting a new kind of war. And hes taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didnt know he had. With his French-born mother dying - and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret - Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed...about his family, his career, his loyalties - and himself. Because this soldiers son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death - and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

This compilation includes three Jack Reacher novellas and the ultimate fan guide, "Jack Reacher's Rules". Deep Down: In thriller master Lee Childs short story "Deep Down", Jack Reacher must track down a spy in soldiers clothing - by matching wits with four formidable females. Three are clean - but the fourth may prove fatal. Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers. The prospect of any and every terrorist, mercenary, or dictators militia getting their hands on the latest superior firepower is unthinkable. Thats where Reacher comes in. His task: infiltrate the top-secret proceedings and smoke out the mole. His target: a quartet of high-powered Army political liaison officers - all of them fast-track women on their way to the top. According to his bosses, its a zero-danger mission. No need to draw a gun...just chat over drinks. But Reacher knows that things are rarely what they seem. And hes learned the hard way never to underestimate an opponent. Or four. Lessons that will come in handy when he starts digging for the truth - and gets his hands a lot dirtier than he expected. Second Son: A young Jack Reacher knows how to finish a fight so it stays finished. He knows how to get the job done so it stays done. And, in one of his earliest challenges, he knows that his analytical brain is just as important as his impressive brawn. Okinawa, 1974: Even at 13, Jack Reacher knows how to outwit and overpower anyone who stands in his way. And as the new kid in town, thats pretty much everyone. His family has come to the Pacific with his father, whos preparing for a top-secret Marine Corps operation. After receiving a rude welcome from the local military brats, Reacher and his older brother, Joe, intend to teach them a lesson they wont forget. But its soon clear that theres more at stake than pride. When his familys future appears to come crumbling down, its the youngest Reacher who rises to the occasion with all the decisive cunning and bravura that will one day be his deadly trademark. High Heat: In the midst of a savage heat wave and an infamous murder spree, a blackout awakens the dark side of the city that never sleeps - and a young Jack Reacher takes action as only he can. July 1977: Jack Reacher is almost 17, and he stops in New York City on the way to visit his brother at West Point. The summer heat is suffocating, the city is bankrupt, and the mad gunman known as Son of Sam is still on the loose. Reacher meets a woman with a problem, and agrees to help her...but then the power grid fails and the lights go out, plunging the lawless city into chaos. What does a visiting teenager do in the dark? If that visiting teenager is Jack Reacher, the answer is plenty. Jack Reacher's Rules: "Jack Reachers Rules" is the ultimate fans guide to the World of Reacher! Featuring selections from all 17 electrifying Jack Reacher novels and an introduction from Lee Child himself, this one-of-a-kind audiobook compiles timeless advice from maverick former army cop Jack Reacher, the hero of Lee Childs blockbuster thrillers and now the star of a major motion picture.

The enduring myth that makes us human. What makes a hero? Who better to answer that question than Lee Child.... In his first work of nonfiction, the creator of the multimillion-selling Jack Reacher series explores the endurance of heroes from Achilles to Bond, showing us how this age-old myth is a fundamental part of what makes us human. He demonstrates how hero stories continue to shape our world - arguing that we need them now more than ever. From the Stone Age to the Greek tagedies, from Shakespeare to Robin Hood, we have always had our heroes. The hero is at the centre of formative myths in every culture and persists to this day in world-conquering books, films and TV shows. But why do these characters continue to inspire us, and why are they so central to storytelling? Scalpel-sharp on the roots of storytelling and enlightening on the history and science of myth, The Hero is essential listening for anyone trying to write or understand fiction. Child teaches us how these stories still shape our minds and behaviour in an increasingly confusing modern world, and with his trademark concision and wit, demonstrates that however civilised we get, well always need heroes.

Una donna viene trovata morta nella vasca da bagno, nuda, il corpo immerso in una vernice color verde militare. Il suo nome è Amy Callan. Lo stesso accade a Caroline Cooke. Nessun segno di violenza, nessuna impronta digitale, nessuna fibra da analizzare: la causa della morte risulta inspiegabile persino per i migliori patologi dell'FBI. Sulle scene dei delitti non ci sono segni di effrazione, come se le donne, prima di morire, avessero ricevuto in casa una persona conosciuta. Dal passato delle vittime emerge che entrambe hanno fatto parte dell'esercito, ed entrambe si sono congedate dopo aver subito molestie sessuali. Il profilo dell'assassino, stilato dall'agente speciale Julia Lamarr, indica il presunto colpevole in qualcuno dello stesso ambiente: una persona sicuramente intelligente e meticolosa, che conduce una vita solitaria e probabilmente insegue una vendetta personale. Un profilo che porta dritto a Jack Reacher, ex maggiore della polizia militare che conosceva sia Amy sia Caroline. Quando risulta chiaro che Reacher con quei delitti non c'entra, l'FBI non esiterà a ricorrere a ogni mezzo pur di ottenerne la collaborazione: perché comunque l'assassino è qualcuno che vive come lui, che pensa come lui, che agisce come lui. Ma Reacher non è uomo che possa tollerare coercizioni o minacce, e non accetta di essere uno strumento nelle mani dei federali. Così, ben presto, si troverà, solo, a indagare tra le pieghe di una realtà inafferrabile, sulla scia di un serial killer lucidamente determinato a portare a termine la propria missione.

In Lee Child's "Safe Enough", a blue-collar city boy takes up with a wealthy suburban wife, with dire consequences. In Harlan Coben's "Entrapped", a woman's husband disappears and is replaced by a handsome impostor. In Laura Lippman's "One True Love", a high-end prostitute seeks a radical solution to a public relations problem. Finally, in P. J. Parrish's "One Shot", a man returns to his childhood home to learn the truth about a long-ago tragedy. Other contributors of original stories include Ridley Pearson, R. L. Stine, Jim Fusilli, Jeff Abbott, Charles Todd, and Tom Savage.

Twenty thrilling writers. One chilling mystery. Pericles "Perry" Christo is a P.I. with a past. A one-time NYPD homicide cop, Perry has been struggling since he lost his badge, and his marriage, in a notorious corruption scandal. So when wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla calls him one cold February night, he jumps at the chance to work what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case. Julia needs Perry to track down the whereabouts of her beautiful yet aimless daughter, Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young heiress. But as Perry digs deeper, he discovers there's much more to the story of the lovely "Angel." Her father, her best friend, her boyfriend - they all have agendas of their own. This classic noir tale twists and turns down New York's mean streets and around Hampton's beaches and back roads, during a bitterly cold and gray winter - where nothing is as it seems and everyone has something to hide. Told in the same "serial novel" format that made 2011's No Rest for the Dead such a commercial and critical success, Inherit the Dead is a collaboration among 20 of today's best-selling mystery and thriller authors each taking a chapter of the narrative and infusing it with their signature style. The editor, Jonathan Santlofer, has arranged to donate any royalties in excess of editor and contributor compensation to Safe Horizon, a leading provider of services to victims of violence and abuse, making this a worthy and winning accomplishment that showcases today's finest writers at their very best.

Esistono ancora gli eroi veri, quelli che non cercano gloria e non sventolano bandiere, capaci di menare le mani, ma anche di insospettabili gesti di tenerezza? C'è un uomo sulle strade d'America, un duro dal cuore giusto, che ha deciso di tagliare i ponti con il passato e di vivere alla giornata, senza lavoro fisso, senza domicilio conosciuto. C'è e si chiama Jack Reacher, ex maggiore della polizia militare e un grande fiuto per trovare i problemi, per poi risolverli. M.E. Froelich, ex collega e amante di Joe, il fratello di Jack morto in servizio anni prima ha bisogno di lui. La donna ha l'incarico di proteggere il vicepresidente degli Stati Uniti, Brook Armstrong, e propone a Reacher di mettere alla prova l'efficacia delle misure di sicurezza, tentando di organizzare un attentato. Un compito impossibile per chiunque, ma non per lui. Ma è solo una simulazione quella che gli si chiede, o c'è davvero qualcuno che ha intenzione di uccidere il vicepresidente? Un emozionante romanzo d'azione, ma anche di sentimenti veri, che appassionerà i già numerosi fan di Jack Reacher e farà conoscere a chi lo incontra per la prima volta il fascino di un personaggio di enorme successo in tutto il mondo.

In klirrender Kälte krempelt Reacher die Ärmel hoch...
