Formed in 1954 by the merger of The Hudson Motor Car Company and Nash-Kelvinator Corporation, American Motors Corporation was no ordinary company. It was the last, and the very best, of the great independent automakers, producing such notables as the muscle-flexing AMX and Javelin, and the forward-designed, 4-wheel-drive Eagle. Highly regarded AMC historian and expert, Patrick Foster, gives us an in-depth look at AMC and its cars from its beginning in 1954 through its demise in 1987. Over 300 photos combined with informative captions show all of AMCs cars. A great reference for the AMC enthusiast!

Though American Motors never approached the size of Detroit’s Big Three, it produced a long series of successful cars that were distinctive, often innovative and in many cases influential. This history examines AMC’s cars from the company’s formation in 1954 through its absorption by Chrysler in 1987. The Gremlin, Pacer and Eagle vehicles are examined in detail, as are the AMC custom cars of George Barris and Carl Green. The text details AMC’s 1980s involvement with the French firm Renault and the design legacy of that joint venture, which includes the Hummer. The evolution of Jeep is covered from the 1960s through the 2000s. Features include some 225 photographs; a listing of AMC / Rambler clubs, organizations and business entities, with contact details; tables of detailed specifications and performance data; data on technical devices, trim packages and all model variations; a comprehensive account of AMC / Rambler appearances in film, television and cartoons.

This book focuses on the different aspects that contributed to the development of Northeast American sports car racing during the 1950s. The evolution from amateur drivers racing on public roads in 1950, to both professional and amateur drivers racing at private, purpose-built tracks in 1959, demanded huge leaps of faith, trust and understanding. The transition was neither easy nor uneventful for drivers, clubs or track owners, and the tragedy, politics and intrigue that came to characterise the period are covered here in fascinating detail.

Ein Mann glaubt nicht, dass seine sechzehnjährige Tochter sich umgebracht hat. Routiniert macht sich Emma an die Arbeit. Bald findet sie heraus, dass noch andere junge Frauen verschwunden sind – und sie stößt auf einen Namen, der sie beinahe in Panik versetzt: Teith. Ein Mann mit diesem Namen gehörte zu ihren Peinigern. Ein packender Ostseekrimi mit einer verdeckten Ermittlerin. Von der Autorin der Bestseller „Hafenmord“,„Leuchtturmmord“ und "Wachkoma".

»Die Hände waren zu Fäusten geballt und die Arme weit ausgebreitet, wogegen seine unteren Gliedmaßen verrenkt waren, als sei sein Todeskampf fürchterlich gewesen. Auf seinem starren Gesicht war ein Ausdruck des Grauens festgefroren, und, so schien es mir, des Hasses, eines Hasses wie ich ihn noch nie zuvor in menschlichen Zügen gesehen hatte.«
