Last Seen Wearing

Krimi von Colin Dexter

Morse was beset by a nagging feeling. Most of his fanciful notions about the Taylor girl had evaporated and he had begun to suspect that further investigation into Valerie’s disappearance would involve little more than sober and tedious routine …The statements before Inspector Morse appeared to confirm the bald, simple truth. After leaving home to return to school, teenager Valerie Taylor had completely vanished, and the trail had gone cold. Until two years, three months and two days after Valerie’s disappearance, somebody decides to supply some surprising new evidence for the case …

Service of All the Dead

Krimi von Colin Dexter

The sweet countenance of Reason greeted Morse serenely when he woke, and told him that it would be no bad idea to have a quiet look at the problem itself before galloping off to a solution. Chief Inspector Morse was alone among the congregation in suspecting continued unrest in the quiet parish of St Frideswide’s. Most people could still remember the churchwarden’s murder. A few could still recall the murderer’s suicide. Now even the police had closed the case.

No Holds Barred

Krimi von Michael Allen

One young girl, alone, holds the fate of the West in her hands. In July, 1980, Sally Denning faced impossible odds in the Olympic women’s judo finals in Moscow, with a host country not averse to bribing judges or drugging finalists in order to ensure victory for their own athletes. Devastated by a loss that by all rights should have been a win, and the gold medal, Sally abandons judo — and the terribly handsome, married coach with whom she is in love — for a new life far away from international competition and intrigue.

The Mules of Borgo San Marco

Historischer Roman von W. H. Canaway

Italy. The last days of the war… In the little mountain village of Borgo San Marco, the gallant German Major Trommel and his batman, Private Wohlhaber, continue their occupation despite being the only members of their unit left in residence. For Trommel, desperate to be a hero and forever denied due to the malformation known as a ‘pigeon chest’, the posting is a disappointment. For Wohlhaber, occupying Borgo San Marco means he stays far, far away from any action at the front…and he’s willing to pretend to be an imbecile if it means he can stay.

The Eighties Erinnerungen von Tom Harvey
Eine amerikanische Jugend in den achtziger Jahren, zweifelsohne eine wilde Zeit mit vielen Veränderungen. „Harvey loves life. He rightly loves his own life, his own teenage years, those varied sea changes that mark the course of a life. His love infuses these pages — for his mother, his brothers, his friends and most strikingly, his good and natural love for himself. Unlike so many contemporary memoirs that hinge upon the conflict of people in psychological peril who finally have a pique experience that transforms them, Harvey’s book is imbued with a sense of healthy vitality. He doesn’t think back on his 18 year old visage, rocking out with an air guitar, with regret or any bitterness, but speaks of how he loves that guy. This pure feeling is what makes this book worthwhile, and works as a kind of cathartic reliving of a period others of us might not have enjoyed so much. I came away from the book thinking, it’s what you bring to the experience that brings it value — not what external things may do to you.“ (Rezensent) (136 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 248 Seiten – noch gratis?
