The Case of The Lonesome Lushington

Historischer Krimi von T.G. Campbell

The Bow Street Society are privately commissioned to investigate the murder of a woman whose mutilated body was discovered in the doorway of the London Crystal Palace Bazaar on Oxford Street. Scandal, lies, intrigue, and murder all await the Society as they explore the consumerist hub of the Victorian Era & its surrounding areas, glimpse the upper classes’ sordid underbelly, and make a shocking discovery no one could’ve predicted…

T.G. Campbell hat ihre Doktorarbeit über Agatha Christie geschrieben. Aber ihre eigenen Romane sind kein Abklatsch der Klassikerin, sondern eigenständige Werke. „The dedicated, amateur sleuths of the Bow Street Society are a terrific premise, making the story more original than most Victorian crime novels.“ (Leser) (4 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 298 Seiten – noch gratis?

Fortune like the Moon

Historischer Krimi von Alys Clare

Shortly before his unexpected coronation, King Richard passed a law letting all of England’s prisoners go free. Shortly afterwards a young nun is found, gruesomely murdered. Richard swiftly employs an old military colleague of his, Josse d’Acquin, to unravel this hideous mystery. Who could have wanted to kill this innocent young novice, and, more worryingly, why? Josse goes to Hawkenlye Abbey to find out the answers to these questions.

The serenity of Hawkenlye Abbey has been disturbed by the arrival of a new nun and her two young sisters.

Message of the Pendant Historischer Krimi von Thomas Thorpe
William Darmon und seine Frau Elizabeth waren machtvolle Gestalten, die 1818 den Fortschritt der Gesellschaft von ihrem teuren Besitz, bekannt als Mayfair Hall, vorgegeben haben. Als ein Familienmitglied ermordet wird, wird ein geheimnisvoller Schmuckanhänger gefunden, der eine lange vermisste Bitte von Napoleon Bonaparte enthält, dass ein Amerikaner die Gebäude des Parlaments abfackeln sollte. „I enjoyed the dialogue and believed it was spot-on reflecting the times and language differences. Thorpe did not miss many literary techniques or visuals, there are elegant estates, wonderful descriptions of the ships and America in its early history.“ (Rezensent) (5 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 250 Seiten – noch gratis?

Those Who Dare

Historischer Thriller von Phil Ward

By May 1940, panzer divisions had decimated Belgium and reached Calais. Lieutenant John Randal of the U.S. 26th Cavalry Regiment volunteers his expertise to help slow their advance. What unfolds is a blend of military guerrilla tactics, suspense, humour, cultural and social commentary, and war buddy camaraderie – plus a little romance between the American GI and the widowed Lady Jane Seaborn.

Phil Ward ist ein ehemaliger Soldat und schreibt heute hochgelobte historische Thriller mit militärischem Hintergrund. „The dialogue, arcs of character and the evocation of 1939-40 Britain are all memorable, but mostly Mr Ward tells a ripping good yarn.“ (Rezensent) (452 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 400 Seiten – noch gratis?

Tempest at Dawn Historischer Roman von James D. Best
Fünfundfünzig Männer kommen im Mai 1787 nach Philadelphia mit dem Auftrag des Kongresses die Artikel der Verfassung zu überarbeiten. Stattdessen haben sie die am längsten bestehende Republik in der Geschichte gegründet. „I gave the book a 5-star rating because I DID truly love that Mr. Best was able to bring history to life for me. For a while, I could even smell the horses, and their ‚leavings‘ in the street, and the heat, the overpowering heat of the summer in Philadelphia without air-conditioning. I was drawn to compassion for these patriots when I read that due to the intent of secrecy, not handing out „press briefings“ on a daily basis, they took to nailing the windows shut on the first floor of the meeting chamber, in order that nobody forget and allow the raised voices to escape from an open window.“ (Rezensent) (156 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 432 Seiten – noch gratis?

Blood and Circuses

Historischer Krimi von Kerry Greenwood

Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher is feeling dull. But is she bored enough to leave her identity, her home and family behind and join Farrell’s Circus and Wild Beast Show? There have been strange things happening at the circus. And when Phryne is asked by her friends – Samson the Strong Man, Alan the carousel operator and Doreen the Snake Woman – to help them, curiosity gets the better of her. Peeling off her wealth and privilege, Phryne takes a job as a trickhorse-rider, wearing hand-me-down clothes and a new name. Someone seems determined to see the circus fail and Phryne must find out who that might be and why they want it badly enough to resort to poison, assault and murder.

Die Australierin Kerry Greenwood, geb. 1954, schreibt mehrere Krimiserien. Am bekanntesten sind die Geschichten um Phryne Fischer im Melbourne der 20er Jahre, eine wohlhabende und lebenslustige Heldin. “While set in the 1920’s Phryne is a very modern heroine who is always the centre of attention, relishes every one of life’s moments and leaves a trail of satisfied lovers in her wake.” (Leser) (115 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 225 Seiten noch günstig?

God’s Hammer Historischer Roman von Eric Schumacher
Es ist das Jahr 935 nach Christus und der Norden ist im Aufruhr. König Harald der 1. (Schönhaar) ist verstorben und hat den Thron des Reiches seinem mörderischen Sohn Erik I (Erik Blutaxt) hinterlassen. Um seinen Anspruch zu verfestigen, entledigt sich Erik aller Bewerber um seinen Thron, mit einer Ausnahme, seinem jüngsten Bruder Hakon. „Some historical fiction can be hard to read, but I found ‚God’s Hammer‘ to be a joy to read. Just the right amount of factual detail, mixed with great descriptive writing and believable dialogue, gave the book an effortless flow. The characters were a real triumph of this book, being so well rounded and 3-dimensional.“ (Rezensent) (30 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 326 Seiten – noch gratis?

A Noble Masquerade

Historischer Liebesroman von Kristi Ann Hunter

Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Entering her fourth Season and approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother’s old school friend, a duke–with no intention of ever sending these private thoughts to a man she’s heard stories about but never met.

Kristi Ann Hunter schreibt beliebte Liebesromane in der Regency-Zeit mit christlichem Hintergrund. „Each of the sumptuous settings throughout the story added to the richness of the world surrounding Lady Miranda – from the rolling English countryside to the busy streets of London to the family’s lavishly decorated country estate.“ (Leserin) (373 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 298 Seiten – noch gratis?
