A murder in the shadow of the Berlin Wall - in a world of conspiracy and espionage, can Karin Muller find the truth?

East Berlin, 1975. When Oberleutnant Karin Muller is called to investigate a teenage girl's body at the foot of the Wall, she imagines she's seen it all before. But when she arrives she realises this is a death like no other. It seems the girl was trying to escape - but from the West.

Muller is a member of the People's Police, but in East Germany her power only stretches so far. The Stasi want her to discover the identity of the girl, but assure her the case is otherwise closed - and strongly discourage her from asking questions.

The evidence doesn't add up, and it soon becomes clear the crime scene has been staged. But this is not a regime that tolerates a curious mind, and Muller doesn't realise that the trail she's following will lead her dangerously close to home...

Stasi Child is David Young's brilliant and page-turning debut novel.

Nanoworms, zombies, a panda, a phairyphant, and Steampunk animals share their adventures across the pages. "Phairyphant" Mystical phairyphants have existed since the days of wooly mammoths and mastodons.

"Naughty Nanoworms" Life on the streets is generally peaceful for Albert, but one day Albert walks his way into trouble. Will he keep his shopping cart? Will Meezer the cat come up with a plan to destroy the world? Can a shopping cart and a skateboard ever get along? "Zachary Zombie and the Wicked Worm" Zachary Zombie has been sent to find the magical Dagger of Gik, accompanied by three fellow zombies. What dangers await the rotting zombies? Who will lose the most body parts? And who, what, or where in the world is Gik? "Steampunk Roo" Steampunk animals roam the wild Outback of Australia, but horrible news has come that someone is destroying water stops that keep the Steampunk animals running. It's up to Steampunk Roo to bring an end to the terrible destruction! "Pow the Panda, The Case of the Rainbow Dragon" In the fantastically roaring year of 1925, business is good for a hard-working private eye in Chinatown. When trouble shows up, a girl named Opal, a gorilla, a bear, a bed and bunch of bad puns join it. Pow is left with the Case of the Rainbow Dragon.

How did Lucky Santangelo become the kick-ass woman she is today? Only Jackie Collins can tell...

Lucky Saint is a fifteen-year-old wild child who discovered her mother's murdered body floating in the family swimming pool when she was only five years old. She is the daughter of the notorious Gino, who's kept her cloistered in their Bel Air mansion ever since. But she's about to discover the world: boys, sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. And no one can stop her now...

CONFESSIONS OF A WILD CHILD

Lucky navigates her teen years-from first kisses and brushes with famous older men to attending boarding school and adventuring through exotic Greek islands-as Gino, a powerful Vegas hotel owner, struggles to control her. Meanwhile, her brother, Dario, is too scared to tell Gino that he's gay. But fearless Lucky will not be held back by her father...or anyone else. Soon she has no choice but to strike out on her own path-one that will lead her to become the powerful and charismatic woman that she was destined to be...

"Jackie Collins knows a thing or two about life in the fast lane...[with] her wry sense of humor and spitfire approach." -Bazaar
