Fail Safe

Something has gone wrong. A group of American bombers armed with nuclear weapons is streaking past the fail-safe point, beyond recall, and no one knows why. Their destination -- Moscow. In a bomb shelter beneath the White House, the calm young president turns to his Russian translator and says, "I think we are ready to talk to Premier Kruschchev." Not far away, in the War Room at the Pentagon, the secretary of defense and his aides watch with growing anxiety as the luminous blips crawl across a huge screen map. High over the Bering Strait in a large Vindicator bomber, a colonel stares in disbelief at the attack code number on his fail-safe box and wonders if it could possibly be a mistake. First published in 1962, when America was still reeling from the Cuban missle crisis, Fail-Safe reflects the apocalyptic attitude that pervaded society during the height of the Cold War, when disaster could have struck at any moment. As more countries develop nuclear capabilities and the potential for new enemies lurks on the horizon, Fail-Safe and its powerful issues continue to respond.

Paranoia

Während sie einen Tatort untersucht, erhält Dr. Kay Scarpetta ein Video auf ihr Handy. Als sie es abspielt, kann sie kaum glauben, was sie sieht. Denn die Aufnahmen stellen alles infrage, was sie über ihre Nichte Lucy zu wissen meint ... Der Clip bringt Scarpetta in einen grausamen Gewissenskonflikt: Die Bilder zeigen Lucy bei einer schweren Straftat, und Scarpetta weiß, dass sie sich weder ihrem Ehemann Benton Wesley noch ihrem Kollegen Pete Marino anvertrauen darf, um ihrer Nichte zu helfen. Aber was hat es mit dem Video auf sich? Und wer hat es ihr zugespielt? Auf sich allein gestellt, sieht sich Scarpetta schon bald mit einer Reihe von Morden konfrontiert, die eine Gefahr aus ihrer eigenen Vergangenheit heraufbeschwören ...
