Dead Energy

SciFi-Thriller von James M. Corkill

When his wife was murdered during a mission, Alex Cave quit the CIA for a less stressful life as a geology instructor. At least, that was his plan. While on vacation sailing the waters of the Puget Sound, Alex sees a brilliant flash of light from an oil tanker and changes course to help. He discovers there was no explosion, no one on board, and the oil has mysteriously vanished without a trace. The bodies of the missing crew are found 100-miles away in the snow on Mount Baker, but there are no footprints leading in or out of the area.

James M. Corkill hat dieses Buch vor etlichen Jahren geschrieben und in einer kleinen Auflage veröffentlicht, damit seine Frau es kurz vor ihrem Tod an Krebs noch haben konnte. Nach ihrem Tod ist er dem Alkohol verfallen und eine zufällige Begegnung mit einem der Käufer des Buches hat dazu geführt, dass er es überarbeitet hat und sich in der Folge zum erfolgreichen Autor gemausert hat. „High adventure, mystery, action, and the pace is ultra-vigorous. Each character is captivating, the plot development is excellent which weaves smoothly from scene to scene.“ (Rezensentin) (63 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 340 Seiten – noch gratis?

Into the Darkness Laughing

Biografie von Patrice Chaplin

During the years of the First World War, somewhere on the terraces of the cafés of Montparnasse, Jeanne Hebuterne met the Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani. She was a pretty young artist with a talent recognised by Foujita and Severini; he was in his thirties, unstable, penniless, unrecognised. Yet as Cocteau said of him, ‘he had glory’. Incapable of forming lasting attachments, he seemed always to be appearing, then disappearing into the darkness laughing.

Patrice Chaplin ist eine international bekannte britische Autorin von Theaterstücken, Romanen und Biografien. “It is part biography with a dash of the thriller as well as knowledge of art, also has pace and interest, and finally, is very well researched. Highly recommended.” (Leserin) (11 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 145 Seiten noch günstig?

Project One

SciFi-Novellen von E C Tubb

Project One sees an unidentified craft in high orbit around the earth, threatening life on Earth with a deadly beam that initially attacks those suffering from illness or imperfect health. The Captain’s Dog is a story of humanity in a world where androids, almost indistinguishable from humans, exist as a punchbag for those who are biologically ‘superior’ to them. The Reluctant Farmer is set in a future world where resources have become so stretched that methods of cultivating food in space are humanity’s only hope. Sword of Tormain takes place in the hostile wastes of Mars, a place where no one can be trusted.

Capitol Offense Krimi von George Wier
Norman Howell sitzt in der Todeszelle und lässt ein paar Hinweise fallen, wie er und sein Vater einmal dem jetzigen Gouverneur von Texas geholfen haben, mit dem Einsatz von starken Explosionsstoffen konkurrierende vietnamesische Fischer loszuwerden. „Capital Offense was a wild ride, it was hilarious, it was enlightening and it had wondering what was going to happen next.“ (Rezensent) (271 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 233 Seiten – noch gratis?

Somebody Killed the Cart Girl Krimi von Judy Moore
Mandy Carter, die hübsche achtzehnjährige Fahrerin eines Golfwagens wird in einem gehobenen Golfclub in Neuengland begraben in einer Sandgrube gefunden. Wer hat sie zu Tode geprügelt … und warum? Diese Frage quält die Detektivin Abby Sanders, deren eigene Teenager-Tochter dem Opfer so ähnlich sieht, dass sie Schwestern hätten sein können. „The author seems to have written about a setting and culture she knows well and it was real to a reader from a completely different context. It had some comedy, a bit of social satire but it never lost sight of being a good old-fashioned mystery.“ (Leserin) (39 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 259 Seiten – noch gratis?

Cozy Krimi von Mollie Cox Bryan

The ladies of the Cumberland Scrapbook Crop are welcoming an eccentric newbie into their fold. A self-proclaimed witch, Cookie Crandall can whip up a sumptuous vegan meal and rhapsodize about runes and moon phases with equal aplomb. She becomes fast friends with her fellow scrapbookers, including freelance reporter Annie, with whom she shares shallow roots in a community of established family trees. So when Cookie becomes the prime suspect in a series of bizarre murders, the croppers get scrappy and set out to clear her name…

Für ein Scrapbook gibt es keine gute Übersetzung. Es ist kein Tagebuch, kein Skizzenbuch, sondern einfach in Buch in dem die Nutzer nach Lust und Laune Text, Zeichnungen, Fotos und andere Bilder einfügen. “Twists. Turns. Suspense. Intrigue. A little romantic activity. Bad guys. Some paranormal events. A great dream sequence. And a cast of ladies from a scrapbooking „crop“ that are friends, confidants, and the ones who solve the mystery. They are tenacious!” (Leserin) (52 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 353 Seiten noch günstig?

Death of an Irish Diva

Cozy Krimi von Mollie Cox Bryan

Spring is in the air, but the ladies of the Cumberland Creek Scrapbook Crop hardly have time to stop and smell the roses. Not when famed Irish dancer Emily McGlashen is found murdered in her studio just after the St. Patrick’s Day parade–and one of the Crop’s own members is the prime suspect. Vera’s dance studio may have suffered when Emily waltzed into town, but the croppers know she’s not a vengeful murderer.

Tja, und jetzt stehen die Damen schon vor dem nächsten Mord! “Author Mollie Cox Bryan has created a cast of zany characters that are likable and realistic. She has given them strengths and flaws readers can relate to. The characters are a vast assortment of personalities including Vera’s 83-year-old mother, Beatrice, who doesn’t act her age.” (Leserin) (38 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 353 Seiten noch günstig?

For several years she has loved, and has been loved by, the handsome Orlando Sax, whose family has, for generations, been the bitter enemy of her own, but despite his repeated proposals, she finds herself unable to commit to marrying him until she has come to terms, not only with her own past, but with that of her family.
