It was even better than The Dry' The Age 'In The Lost Man, Jane Harper surpasses her achievement in The Dry, her multi-award winning first novel. A broad range of Australian and international readers will be engaged by the strong setting and mystery storyline of the new novel' Weekend Australian 'Like the country it describes, this is a "big" book, and one likely to cement Harper's place as one of the most interesting Australian crime writers to emerge in the past decade.

Rarely does a puzzle so complicated fit together perfectly - you'll be shaking your head in amazement.'

Detail - This new and innovative biography portrays the life of Wilhelm Heinrich Solf, a man who lived from Bismarck to Hitler (1862-1936), and whose life was deeply entangled with the ups and downs of Germany's domestic and in particular foreign and international policies.Solf went from carving out a name for himself as a liberal - and successful - colonial Governor to becoming the imperial colonial minister of the Kaiserreich before World War I. During the war he struggled to influence the Kaiser's ruling circle away from its aggressive military policies towards a negotiated peace, rising to become imperial Germany's last Foreign Minister. He was appointed Weimar's ambassador to Japan, and turned out to be the Republic's most successful and cultured diplomat overseas, restoring the relationship between the two former enemies. On his return to Germany, Solf became involved with several political attempts to forestall Hitler's rise to power. He and his family worked against the Nazi's anti-Semitic policies. In fact the 'Solf circle' became an important opposition group. After Solf's death his wife, Hanna, and daughter Lagi (who was born in Samoa) continued this work and were imprisoned by the Nazis. While their accomplices were executed during the war, the Solf women escaped by the barest of margins as the Russians invaded Berlin in the last stages of the war.

Detail - Within about a 96-hour period of time, I got to Vietnam, inhaled my first cigarette, got drunk for the very first time, had my 19th birthday, and shot and killed my first two human beings. I liked all of it. --Sam Lost Man Found, Crime, Punishment & Growing a Soul is a story of internal anarchy, external evils, and a hard-won peace. Sam, a troubled man who has hurt and been hurt, survives to reach redemption with the assistance of steadfast willpower, a bit of luck, and the acceptance of help. Raised in an outwardly normal, inwardly disastrous family in small town Midwest, Sam dodged death in Vietnam, married repeatedly, and served prison time for sex offenses. Sam's journey from a life drenched in hate, loneliness, and lies to one centered on kindness, generosity, and spiritual wisdom continues to inspire those who struggle for peace and purpose. 100% of Lost Man Found profits are donated to Sam's endowment administrated by the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota. Mike Ricci's hope is to raise an additional $1 million for Sam's charitable fund which feeds the poor and cares for children. Sam set up his endowment when he unexpectedly inherited money and decided to give it all away in honor of those that loved and cared for him in his most troubled times. I've led a life of destruction, and I found a path to salvation. Along the way, I realized there is not enough love. --Sam AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY Karin Winegar is an award-winning journalist known for her in-depth biographies, vivid newspaper and magazine features, moving editorials, and investigative journalism.
