Only The Ruthless Can Play

Krimi von John Burke

It is the middle of the twentieth century, and Andrew Flint is a company man through and through… He has arranged all aspects of his life, from the most intimate to the most mundane – to fit in with what the company wants, all with a view to enhancing his career. And the company recognises such efforts. Little wonder, then, that Andrew has been marked out for possible promotion and sent on Intersyn’s prestigious management course. Yet it turns out to be no ordinary management course. On this course, neither candidates or course administrators are necessarily as they seem.

John Burke, 1922 – 2011, war ein britischer Autor von Romanen und Kurzgeschichten. Viele seiner Werke waren Romanfassungen bekannter Filme, andere, wie dieses, eigenständige Werke. 336 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…

Ihr erster Krimi. „Given the dark subject matter, this is a surprisingly funny book… a quirky and interesting read.“ (Guardian) (129 Rezensionen / 3,7 Sterne), 436 Seiten noch günstig?

FBOM: The Foundation Dunkler Thriller von EM Bosso
Als die Tochter eines Mannes sich in der Folge einer Vergewaltigung im College umbringt, gründet Michael Carson „Die Stiftung“ um den Opfern von sexuellen Übergriffen Hilfe und Gerechtigkeit zuteil werden zu lassen und denen, die diese abscheulichen Taten begehen, Vergeltung. „The characters all came across as totally believable. This I think is harder to do with complex, wounded people as they tend to be inconsistent by nature but here the author does a spot on job of making each one credible and believable.“ (Rezensentin) (10 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 284 Seiten – noch gratis?

Naughty: Nine Tales of Christmas Crime

Weihnachtliche Krimierzählungen von Steve Hockensmith

In this collection of hilarious short stories, you’ll see what the thieves, killers, psychos and scumbags are up to come the holidays…and it’s not caroling door to door. Well, not unless they’re casing the neighborhood for a break-in, as a rag-tag gang does in the title story. You’ll also meet a mall elf menaced by a very, very bad Santa (in „I Killed Santa Claus“), a London police inspector hunting for the man who murdered Ebenezer Scrooge (in „Humbug“), a trucker out to save his shipment of Cabbage Patch Dolls from bumbling hijackers (in „Special Delivery“) and many more characters you’ll never forget.

Gestern habe ich einige der amüsanten Krimis/Western des Autors vorgestellt, heute gibt es noch einen Nachschlag aus anderen Genres. „The biggest laugh I had was in Naughty during the Christmas carolers scene. I could see the four culprits with their ski mask knocking at the doors in a nice neighbor and I could hear the dreadful singing that came out of their mouths. When they received a pity donation, I really laughed.“ (Rezensentin) (32 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 212 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Marseille Caper

Krimi von Peter Mayle

Sam Levitt, former corporate lawyer, wine connoisseur and expert on cultivated crime, is back in Marseille, for both work and pleasure – the lure of excitement and the pleasures of the region proving too tempting to resist. But surrounded by gangsters and cut-throat developers, Sam finds himself far closer to danger than he had planned.

Peter Mayle, geb. 1939 ist ein Engländer, der nach Südfrankreich gezogen ist und dort mit biografischen und fiktionalen Büchern, die in seiner neuen Heimat spielen, weltweiten Erfolg hat. “The oh so simple, oh so flowing narrative of another tale from Peter Mayle flows across the storyboard of our mind like a long lunch on the terrace overlooking the bright blue Mediterranean, the glasses of velvety red wine coming in unhurried succession, the beauty of our companion delighting our eye, the wittiness of our guests amusing our sensibility.” (Leser) (158 Rezensionen / 3,8 Sterne), 225 Seiten noch günstig?

Sensation

Superhelden-Fantasy von Kevin Hardman

Like millions of other kids, Jim grew up wanting to be a superhero. Unlike most of his contemporaries, however, Jim actually had the goods: a plethora of super powers that would have been the envy of any meta on the planet. But when his tryout with the Alpha League – the world’s premier group of supers – goes disastrously wrong, Jim basically becomes an outcast. Two years later, Jim is still bitter about what happened to him.

Kevin Hardman ist ein amerikanischer Autor, der sich erfolgreich zwischen SciFi und Fantasy bewegt und immer gerne Superhelden propagiert. „Hardman does a great job of capturing what it’s like to be a teenage boy and grounding the character despite his multitude of powers. The interactions between Kid and his grandfather and mother as well as other superheroes his age, like Paramount, Aqua or Smokescreen or Electra all feel very real.“ (Rezensent) (119 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 208 Seiten – noch gratis?

Japan on Foot Wanderbericht von Mary King

And the adventures she had! This book is a great way to learn more about Japanese culture, independent travel, and the things humans are capable of.“ (Rezensentin) (2 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 299 Seiten – noch gratis?
