Charlie Parker war noch ein Kind, als sein Vater ein junges Liebespaar tötete. Dann richtete der Cop des NYPD die Waffe gegen sich selbst. Jahrelang hat Parker nach einer Erklärung für diese Tat gesucht, die seine Kindheit beendete. Ein Auftrag führt den Privatdetektiv in seinen Heimatort. Und er beginnt, den lange zurückliegenden Selbstmord zu ermitteln. Beiläufige Fragen nach seinem Vater setzen eine Kettenreaktion in Gang, die ein Gespinst von Lüge, Verrat und Illoyalität offenbart. Und noch etwas offenbart sich, ein alter Schrecken: die Dämonen, das Tod bringende Liebespaar.

Für ihre Liebe riskieren Zakia und Muhammad Ali alles. Sie laufen davon und heiraten heimlich. Doch in Afghanistan droht ihnen dafür der Tod. Zakia und Muhammad Ali waren als Kinder unzertrennlich. Auf angrenzenden Feldern im afghanischen Bamian halfen sie ihren Eltern. Aber seit sie vierzehn ist, darf Zakia mit keinen anderen Männern als ihrem Vater und ihren Brüdern sprechen. In Afghanistan gehören Frauen erst ihren Vätern, dann ihren Ehemännern. Doch es gelingt Muhammad Ali, im Verborgenen um sie zu werben. Seine offiziellen Heiratsanträge lehnt Zakias Vater ab. Zakia und Muhammad Ali entschließen sich zur Flucht – ein Mullah traut sie heimlich. Zakias Familie und die Polizei aber sind längst hinter ihnen her. Werden sie gefunden, droht ihnen der Tod. Es beginnt eine gefährliche Jagd quer durch Afghanistan – von Höhle zu Höhle, von Versteck zu Versteck.

New York Times bestselling author John Connolly writes an “unfailingly compelling” (New Orleans Times-Picayune) and lyrical tale that forces Private Investigator Charlie Parker to examine his haunting past and all that he has ever believed true about his beloved parents—and himself. Charlie Parker is a lost soul. Deprived of his private investigator's license and under scrutiny by the police, Parker takes a job in a Portland bar. But he uses his enforced retirement to begin a different kind of investigation: an examination of his own past and an inquiry into the death of his father, who took his own life after apparently shooting dead two unarmed teenagers. It's a search that will eventually lead Parker to question all that he believed about his beloved parents, and about himself. But there are other forces at work: a troubled young woman who is running from an unseen threat, one that has already taken the life of her boyfriend; and a journalist-turned-writer named Mickey Wallace, who is conducting an investigation of his own. And haunting the shadows, as they have done throughout Parker's life, are two figures: a man and a woman who seem driven to bring an end to Charlie Parker's existence. Haunting, lyrical, and impossible to put down, The Lovers is John Connolly at his best.

In the 25 years since its original publication, But for the Lovers has acquired an underground reputation as one of the most remarkable novels about World War II, doing for the Pacific war theater what Joseph Heller's Catch-22 did for the European one. Set in the Philippines, But for the Lovers depicts the survival of a cross-section of Filipinos during the Japanese Occupation and the American Liberation. The cast is enormous, including an old man who used to wander the countryside entertaining children, a young girl raped by Japanese soldiers, guerrilla messengers bringing word of the coming of the American army, and a Japanese major who views the war as the first step of the liberation of the Asian people from Western civilization. This extraordinary novel is no less remarkable for the power and the beauty of its language than for the exotic and magical world it creates. Ranging from hallucinatory lyricism to documentary realism, from black humor sketches to scenes of horror and degradation, But for the Lovers is a rich and complex exploration of language, history, and mythology. The hardcover edition (Dutton, 1970) was praised by the New York Times Book Review as "stunning"; this is the first paperback edition, for which novelist Robert Coover has written an appreciative foreword.

1,6 Millionen Alleinerziehende leben in Deutschland – Caroline Rosales spricht ihnen aus der Seele. Das mit dem Happy End hatte sie sich anders vorgestellt: Caroline ist 34 Jahre alt und nach der Trennung vom Vater ihrer zwei kleinen Kinder wieder Single. Doch mit dem Stigma der spaßbefreiten Alleinerziehenden, die mit festgetackertem Lächeln zwischen Job, Kindergarten und Supermarktregalen im Kreis läuft, will sie nichts zu tun haben. Sie will kein Mitleid und keine Datingstipps, aber trotzdem eine Antwort auf die Frage: Werde ich je wieder mit jemandem kuscheln, der größer als 120 Zentimeter ist? Humorvoll und ehrlich schreibt Rosales über ihr Leben als Single-Mom.
