Hidden Guns

Western von Gordon Landsborough

Known to the Mexicans as El Cougar, the deadliest gunfighter on the border has a score to settle… Ringo Smith is an Apache raid survivor, working the land with his kid brother, Nick. He carries the tools of his trade with pride, a low slung, tied down rig that bolsters a piece of the master gunsmith profession. This Colt 45, with its butt inlaid with green jade, worth a small fortune, brings Smith luck wherever he goes. But it would seem that luck finally runs out when Nick is found shot dead in cold blood.

The Coroner’s Lunch

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

Life has taken a funny turn for Siri Paiboun. After years in obscurity, his country needs him. He is to be their only coroner. Because he’s the only doctor left. It’s not as flattering as it could be, and when one of the leaders‘ wives turns up in his hot, shabby, smelly morgue, and he’s expected to solve her murder, things take a turn for the worse. He has no experience, training or equipment to speak of, and his only hope are his two trusty assistants – neither of whom know anything either – and his own mental resources.

Laos und Chaos, sagt ein Rezensent – und das trifft es wohl. “Cotterill has a wonderful sense of farce…a delightful book” (Telegraph) (325 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 287 Seiten noch günstig?
