How to Cheat at Designing a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Infrastructure: Melissa M. Meyer, Michael Cross, Hal Kurz, Brian Barber
Selected by Marcel Berlins in The Times as one of the 50 best crime novels of the last 50 years: ´Deon Meyer is acclaimed for his portrayals of crime and the police after the end of apartheid. Non-white detectives hold positions once monopolised by their white bosses, and the tensions are high´ After 602 days dry, Captain Benny Griessel of the South African police services can´t take any more tragedy. So when Benny is called in to investigate a multiple homicide, it pushes him close to breaking point - a former friend and detective colleague has shot his wife and two daughters, then killed himself. Benny wants out - out of his job, his home and his relationship with his singer girlfriend, Alexa. He moves into a hotel and starts drinking. Again. But Benny´s unique talent is urgently required to help investigate another crime - the high profile murder of Ernst Richter, MD of a new tech startup, Alibi, whose body is discovered buried in the sand dunes north of Cape Town. Alibi is a service that creates false appointments, documents and phone calls to enable people to cheat on their partners. It has made Richter one of the most notorious people in South Africa. Can Benny pull together the strands of his life in time to catch the killer?
´´The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump´s authoritarian appeal.´´-Salon It Can´t Happen Here is the only one of Sinclair Lewis´s later novels to match the power of Main Street, Babbitt, and Arrowsmith. A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler´s aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called ´´a message to thinking Americans´´ by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can´t Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today´s news. With an Introduction by Michael Meyer and an Afterword by Gary Scharnhorst
