CAPTIVATING THE ESCAPE ARTIST is a modern day tale that explores same sex relationships. A gypsy boy from Algiers meets an aspiring composer-musician in San Francisco. In unseemly settings, they share lively conversations about ant etiquette, rude idioms, and a satirical history of mankind. Their two histories span childhood discoveries, the insecurities of teenagers, highs and lows of substance abuse, and the miracles of recovery. Told with self-effacing heart and humor, the two characters mature, showing a capacitiy for loving and sharing each other in a world worth living in - yes, a world scarred with war, but also filled with magic and wonder.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Meltzer is a master and this is his best. Not since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo have you seen a character like this. Get ready to meet Nola. If you've never tried Meltzer, this is the one."--Harlan Coben WHO IS NOLA BROWN? Nola is a mystery Nola is trouble. And Nola is supposed to be dead. Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run. Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig's daughter and someone who once saved his daughter's life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he's determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola's past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes. Nola is the U.S. Army's artist-in-residence-a painter and trained soldier who rushes into battle, making art from war's aftermath and sharing observations about today's wars that would otherwise go overlooked. On her last mission, Nola saw something nobody was supposed to see, earning her an enemy unlike any other, one who will do whatever it takes to keep Nola quiet. Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army's most mysterious secret-a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.

His evenings were spent doing the miles on the roads between South London and the North Downs. Weekends were taken up with Club meetings, road races and time trials - rides that took him to cold village halls at dawn and out onto the empty bypasses of Southern England.

"So this, more or less, was how things stood for me at the end of 1981. I was twenty-nine years old and I was still on the lowest rung of the civil service pay scale and I lived alone in a three-bedroom government flat with twenty-four different sized statues of the Sacred Heart of Jesus...." Spanning over ten years and moving between locations as different as Cambridge, Venice and Gibraltar, THE ESCAPE ARTIST is a novel about loneliness and broken friendship and what it means to be Gibraltarian in a rapidly changing world. "Fascinating and highly readable. Sanchez is a new voice from the old world of Britain and its fading Empire." John A. Stotesbury, Professor in Postcolonial Literatures, Helsinki, Finland "M. G. Sanchez writes with feeling and heart." Emigdi Subirats i Sebastia, Catalonian novelist, poet, biographer and translator "Through a deft and innovative style M.G. Sanchez brings to the fore a strong sense of Gibraltarian identity." Dr Esterino Adami, Department of Humanities, University of Turin"

Was geschah mit Harriet Vanger? Während eines Familientreffens spurlos verschwunden, bleibt ihr Schicksal jahrzehntelang ungeklärt. Bis der Journalist Mikael Blomkvist und die Ermittlerin Lisbeth Salander recherchieren. Was sie zutage fördern, lässt alle Beteiligten wünschen, sie hätten sich nie mit diesem Fall beschäftigt. An seinem 82. Geburtstag erhält der einflussreiche Industrielle Henrik Vanger per Post anonym ein Geschenk. Das Paket enthält eine gepresste Blüte hinter Glas, genau wie in den 43 Jahren zuvor. Vangers Lieblingsnichte Harriet hatte ihm 1958 zum ersten Mal dieses Geschenk gemacht, doch dann verschwand sie spurlos. Ihr Leichnam wurde nie gefunden. In einer letzten Anstrengung beschließt Vanger herauszufinden, was dem geliebten Mädchen tatsächlich zustieß. Er engagiert den Journalisten Mikael Blomkvist, der, getarnt als Biograf, bald auf erste Spuren stößt. Unterstützt wird er von der jungen Ermittlerin Lisbeth Salander, einem virtuosen Computergenie mit messerscharfem Verstand. Je tiefer Blomkvist und Salander in der Vangerschen Familiengeschichte graben, desto grauenvoller sind ihre Enthüllungen.
