Experience the secretive and dangerous new China in this explosive thriller from renowned journalist John Gapper This wasn’t just a body in a field. The corpse’s shape was hers – same length, same curves. Then she knew, and everything else receded to nothingness. All she could see was a woman with the same nose, the same eyes, and the same face. Her twin. Agent Song Mei is a rising star in the Commission for Discipline Inspection. Her days are spent investigating political corruption... until she arrives on the scene of a gruesome murder and is confronted with a crime – and a victim – that is impossible to ignore. Ignoring the warnings and threats of her superiors, Mei throws herself into a quest to uncover the mystery surrounding the corpse before her, which takes her into the dark heart of modern-day China. Soon it becomes clear that shadowy forces at home and abroad are implicated in a complex and far-reaching conspiracy. From corrupt Communist officials, to tragedy-haunted CIA agents, through to suicidal factory workers, The Ghost Shift is a devastating portrait of a country coming to terms with the twenty-first century, and a brilliant and driven heroine coming to terms with her past.

Those who love both Nature and Technology and are looking for an extraordinary but still believable Adventure, will be attracted by this book. Many people believe that very special events do only occur far away. This is so because we are not really aware of our environment and the forces that dwell in it. Be ready to open your eyes and change your mind and you will see that different realities converge here, very close to us! Maybe you cannot see them at the first glance. But, eventually, fate will make them cross your way. If this happens, the world won't be the same for you any longer. Have the courage to join Master Engineer Carrás and his Specialists Team on this fantastic experience! Preview: In the 24th century we were used to consider any possible threat to our planet as coming from space, very likely from one of those terrorist groups from far-away worlds that did not accept the spreading of the Human culture. The idea that we may have a potential enemy in our own planet had not crossed the minds of the generals at the Pentagon, until Major Jenkins detected a huge object advancing in the depths of the Indic Ocean during a routine Navy drill. Soon, another encounter of similar kind, but in the air, will show us that our homeland security is unable to assess the presence of other beings who are apparently sharing our pretty planet. Master Engineer Carrás, Technical Director of the EACS Aerospace Consortium in Getafe, and his collaborators, have been involved in a search mission under the supervision of the pretty Elke Zimmermann, a high Government representative who insists on the peaceful nature of their task. What the Carrás people cannot tell Ms Zimmermann is that they have found a mole in their organization.

Has the world’s hottest pop star been kidnapped, joined a secret sect, or simply gone into hiding? The answer lies in the abandoned subway stations of Chicago . . . One minute insanely famous pop singer Molly Metropolis is on her way to a major performance in Chicago, and the next, she’s gone. A journalist who’s been covering Molly joins the singer's personal assistant in an increasingly desperate search to find her, guided by a journal left behind in her hotel room, and possible clues hidden in her songs—all of which seem to point to an abandoned line in the Chicago subway system. It leads them to a map of half-completed train lines underneath Chicago, which in turn leads them to the secret, subterranean headquarters of an obscure intellectual sect—and the realization that they’ve gone too far to turn back. And if a superstar can disappear without a trace . . . what can happen to these young women? Suspenseful and wildly original, The Ghost Network is a novel about larger-than-life fantasies—of love, sex, pop music, amateur detective work, and personal reinvention. Debut novelist Catie Disabato bursts on the scene with an ingeniously plotted, witty, haunting mystery.

"A startling exposé of the invisible human workforce that powers the web--and how to bring it out of the shadows. Hidden beneath the surface of the internet, a new, stark reality is looming--one that cuts to the very heart of our endless debates about the impact of AI. Anthropologist Mary L. Gray and computer scientist Siddharth Suri unveil how the services we use from companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Uber can only function smoothly thanks to the judgment and experience of a vast human labor force that is kept deliberately concealed. The people who do 'ghost work' make the internet seem smart. They perform high-tech, on-demand piecework: flagging X-rated content, proofreading, transcribing audio, confirming identities, captioning video, and much more. The shameful truth is that no labor laws protect them or even acknowledge their existence. They often earn less than legal minimums for traditional work, they have no health benefits, and they can be fired at any time for any reason, or for no reason at all. An estimated 8 percent of Americans have worked in this 'ghost economy,' and that number is growing every day. In this unprecedented investigation, Gray and Suri make the case that robots will never completely eliminate 'ghost work' and the unchecked quest for artificial intelligence could spark catastrophic work conditions if not stopped in its tracks. Ultimately, they show how this essential type of work can create opportunity--rather than misery--for those who do it."--Dust jacket.
