Talking to the Dead
€ 9.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A crime you´ll always remember. A detective you´ll never forget. A young girl is found dead. A prostitute is murdered. And the strangest, youngest detective in the South Wales Major Crimes Unit is about to face the fiercest test of her short career. A woman and her six-year-old daughter are killed with chilling brutality in a dingy flat. The only clue: the platinum bank card of a long-dead tycoon, found amidst the squalor. DC Griffiths has already proved herself dedicated to the job, but there´s another side to her she is less keen to reveal. Something to do with a mysterious two-year gap in her CV, her strange inability to cry - and a disconcerting familiarity with corpses. Fiona is desperate to put the past behind her but as more gruesome killings follow, the case leads her back into those dark places in her own mind where another dead girl is waiting to be found...

Marley Clark, a retired military intelligence officer, works security for a Sea Island community simply to keep busy.

In a deceptively peaceful county, a murderer hides in plain sight. Fifty-eight minutes into her first day on the job, 23-year-old Sheriff Piper Blackwell is faced with a grisly murder, the victim artfully posed amid decorations on his lawn. Drawing on former military training, Piper must prove herself worthy of the sheriff´s badge, and that won´t be easy. Chief Deputy Oren Rosenberg, Piper´s opponent in the recent election, doesn´t like her and wants her to fail. She doesn´t like him either, but she needs Oren to help catch the killer before another victim is discovered. Too late! As Piper leads the manhunt, another crisis hits close to home. Her father, the previous sheriff, is fighting for his life, and she is torn between family and duty. Facing personal and professional threats, Piper has to weather a raging storm, keep the sheriff´s department from crumbling around her, and reel in a killer during the most brutal winter sleepy Spencer County, Indiana, has ever experienced. 1.

Rise of Automation: Technology and Robots Will ...

You probably have an idea how robots will affect human workers negatively. Chief players in the tech world, like Bill Gates and Elon Musk, have provided their solutions: universal basic income or robot tax. But amidst the serious warnings and the utter sci-fi utopias, the human pain that will follow future job loss seems to be forgotten. 15 years or so from now, the US economy will lose 38 percent of its jobs to automation. This rate is alarming. And yet, many people maintain that automation should not and cannot slow down. However, what if the progress is decelerated a little? Just enough to match the slow fashion and slow food trends maybe? At the very least, people should rethink the ownership of autonomous trucks. Robotization would not be that bad if truck drivers owned the automatic trucks instead of having a corporation own them all. In the meantime, robotization is a real threat and poses a danger to crucial human infrastructure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Art Stone.
