Emily is having the time of her life—she’s in the mountains of Chile with her best friend, Kristen, on their annual reunion trip, and the women are feeling closer than ever. But on the last night of the trip, Emily enters their hotel suite to find blood and broken glass on the floor. Kristen says the cute backpacker she brought back to their room attacked her, and she had no choice but to kill him in self-defense. Even more shocking: The scene is horrifyingly similar to last year’s trip, when another backpacker wound up dead. Emily can’t believe it’s happened again—can lightning really strike twice?
Back home in Wisconsin, Emily struggles to bury her trauma, diving headfirst into a new relationship and throwing herself into work. But when Kristen shows up for a surprise visit, Emily is forced to confront their violent past. The more Kristen tries to keep Emily close, the more Emily questions her motives. As Emily feels the walls closing in on their cover-ups, she must reckon with the truth about her closest friend. Can Emily outrun the secrets she shares with Kristen, or will they destroy her relationship, her freedom—even her life?

As CEO of the Herd, an elite women-only coworking space, Eleanor Walsh seems to have it all: close friends, a sweet husband, and the most glamorous and successful female-empowerment-based company in New York City. Then she vanishes on the night of a glitzy press conference—and the police suspect foul play.
For Hana, the head of PR for the Herd and Eleanor’s best friend, this is a nightmare. For Hana’s sister, Katie, a journalist, this is the story that will make her career. But when the sisters launch their own investigation and begin to learn what Eleanor was hiding, they must also face the secrets they’ve been keeping from each other—and confront just how dangerous it can be when women’s perfect veneers start to crack.

In 2009, Edie had New York’s social world in her thrall. Mercurial and beguiling, she was the shining star of a group of recent graduates living in a Brooklyn loft and treating New York like their playground. When Edie’s body was found near a suicide note at the end of a long, drunken night, no one could believe it. Grief, shock, and resentment scattered the group and brought the era to an abrupt end.
A decade later, Lindsay has come a long way from the drug-addled world of Calhoun Lofts. She has devoted best friends, a cozy apartment, and a thriving career as a magazine’s head fact-checker. But when a chance reunion leads Lindsay to discover an unsettling video from that hazy night, she starts to wonder if Edie was actually murdered—and, worse, if she herself was involved. As she rifles through those months in 2009—combing through case files, old technology, and her fractured memories—Lindsay is forced to confront the demons of her own violent history to bring the truth to light.
--The New Yorker
From the dive bars of Brooklyn's Williamsburg to the dirty alleys of
San Francisco's Mission, the urban hipster has redefined American cool
with a sighing disdain for everything mainstream. Hipsters are
easily identified by their worn-out shoes, fixies and PBR tallboys, but
until now no one had investigated beyond the hipster look to the
even more hilarious hipster psyche. With personally researched
articles, revealing illustrations and helpful charts and graphs, Stuff Hipsters Hate exposes the bottomless well of impassioned scorn that motivates the ever-apathetic hipster, including:
MATING AND SOCIAL HATES
♠ buying you a drink
♠ texting back in a timely fashion
APPAREL AND GROOMING HATES
♠ high heels
♠ being asked about their tattoos
WORK AND LIFE HATES
♠ full-time jobs
♠ knowing their bank balance
Die New Yorkerinnen reißen sich um eine Mitgliedschaft bei The Herd, dem exklusiven Co-Working-Space für Frauen. Alle wollen sie so sein wie Eleanor Walsh, die schillernde Gründerin des Unternehmens. Damit ist Eleanor das perfekte Thema für das neue Buchprojekt von Autorin Katie Bradley. Zum Glück gehört Katies Schwester Hana zum engsten Kreis von Eleanor. Doch dann verschwindet Eleanor eines Abends während einer Party. Könnte jemand ihr etwas angetan haben? Die Liste der Verdächtigen ist lang und Hana und Katie müssen bald feststellen, dass Eleanor nicht die Einzige war, die ein dunkles Geheimnis hütete.
2009: Über den Dächern von Brooklyn feiert eine Gruppe junger New Yorker wie im Rausch. Für Lindsay endet die Party wie so oft mit einem Blackout. Am nächsten Morgen erinnert sie sich an nichts. Doch etwas Schreckliches ist passiert: Während alle feierten, hat sich ihre beste Freundin Edie wenige Stockwerke tiefer erschossen.
2019: Lindsay hat mit den Ereignissen von vor zehn Jahren eigentlich abgeschlossen. Doch dann begegnet sie einer Freundin von damals, und alte Wunden reißen wieder auf. War Edies Tod wirklich Selbstmord? Wer könnte ihr etwas angetan haben? Stück für Stück setzt Lindsay das Bild jener verlorenen Nacht zusammen. Nur ihre eigene Erinnerung lässt sie dabei immer wieder im Stich, und sie beschleicht ein grauenhafter Verdacht.
Ein Mord in der Hipster-Szene von Brooklyn – dieser Pageturner geht unter die Haut!
