Demon Bound

Fantasy von David Parkland

Demonbound is a story of dark secrets and hidden doorways, bringing to life the expectant thrill of tales whispered in the dark and the disastrous consequences of magic running out of control. A story in which the dreams of poor drummer boys clash against the skulduggery of the landed gentry, where demons and their tireless hunters conduct a secret war in sleepy Yorkshire villages, and where the lives of innocent people can be turned upside down by a few badly chosen words.

David Parkland hat als Kartograph für die britische Armee gearbeitet und schreibt heute witzige Fantasy im sehr englischen Stil. Und das, wie ich finde, grandiose Titelbild hat er selber gemalt. „This is a fun historical fantasy adventure for adults and is filled with creative plot twists and sometimes humorous, sometimes disastrous mishaps.“ (Rezensent) (31 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 284 Seiten – noch gratis?

Last Rituals

Krimi von Yrsa Sigurðardóttir

A young man is found brutally murdered, his eyes gouged out. A student of Icelandic history in Reykjavik, he came from a wealthy German family who do not share the police’s belief that his drug dealer murdered him. Attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir is commissioned by his mother to find out the truth, with the help — and hindrance — of boorish ex-policeman Matthew Reich. Their investigations into his research take them deep into a grisly world of torture and witchcraft both past and present, as they draw ever closer to a killer gripped by a dangerous obsession…

Woman of a Hundred Names

Thriller von Jose Ho

Adopted from a Chinese orphanage in infancy, Melanie Brooks knows little about China. Until Englishman Bernard Mason accosts her with photos of a missing Hong Kong heiress, Julia Tang, whose resemblance to Melanie is astounding. The heiress is key to a billion – dollar conglomerate that’s been haemorrhaging money since the death of tycoon Arthur Tang, Julia’s father. As Arthur’s former aide, Mason knows everything about Julia, right down to her handwriting, and coaches Melanie on how she can replace her.

Jose Ho stammt von den Philippinen und hat am renommierten Moskauer Film-Institut studiert, weswegen seine Romane alle eine wenig einen filmischen Charakter haben. „Although the story seems fun and even fairy tale like in the beginning (it’s not every day you get to become an heiress!) the dark truth of the tale quickly unfolds and you find yourself on the edge of your seat as you wait to see what happens next.“ (Leserin) (4 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 296 Seiten- noch gratis?

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?

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

As usual, all is abnormal in Dr Siri Paiboun’s morgue. The good doctor and his team are investigating the case of the Three Epées: three women skewered by a sword through the heart. A culprit has been apprehended, tried and sentenced to death. But Siri isn’t sure they have the right man. Unfortunately, the number one (and only) coroner of Laos isn’t in a position to help anyone – not even himself. As his birthday dawns, Siri finds himself incarcerated and staring starvation and torture in the face.

Frauen mit dem Schwert ermordet. “You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the ’70s. The humor is wonderful, too—very subtle, very British.” (New York Post) (67 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?

A New Dawn in Deer Isle

Literarischer Roman von Tom Winton

A common man of modest means, world-weary George McLast decides to forget all his problems and take the trip he and his beloved wife had only dreamed about before she passed away three years earlier. Despite all the unnerving feelings he’s been getting in his chest, his son’s disapproval, and his precarious financial situation, he sets out across America following the same route John Steinbeck took in 1959 with his pet poodle Charley.

Tom Winton ist ein amerikanischer Autor, der ungewöhnliche und interessante Kurzgeschichten und Romane schreibt. Die meisten waren schon hier – umso mehr freue ich mich, heute ein weiteres Buch vorzustellen. „As usual, Tom Winton’s writing is descriptive and imaginative, you actually feel as if you’re sitting in the passenger seat of that old clunky van, riding right along with the main character.“ (Rezensent) (17 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 181 Seiten – noch gratis?
