Edwin Brook: Dire Recompense

Literarischer Thriller von Daeus Lamb

Matthew is sworn to avenge a murder. His dedication to his wronged family is powerful enough to bring him through any trial, but youth and inexperience hold him back. Setting out to find new strength, he plummets into a web of tangled plots, tragedies, and a deep uncertainty surrounding his destiny. Matthew returns years later with wealth and power, ready to fulfill his vengeance. Assuming the mysterious guise of Edwin Brook, he begins his struggle for justice, but uncanny events keep thwarting his every move.

Daeus Lamb ist ein junger, amerikanischer Autor, dem etwas Ungewöhnliches gelungen ist: ein Roman im klassischen Stil, der die modernen Leser begeistert. „Lamb sets his historical stage with captivating characters, beautiful descriptions that could likely be attributed to history’s greatest authors and astounding lessons that makes this tale quite unforgettable.“ (Leser) (12 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 180 Seiten – noch gratis?

Slash and Burn

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

Dr Siri’s bagged himself a holiday with his friends – an all-expenses-paid trip to the mountains of Laos. He is to assist a US-funded search for a lost CIA pilot – Boyd Bowry – missing since 1968, though Siri strongly suspects that when the helicopter exploded, the pilot followed suit. But, just hours into the trip, it becomes apparent that ulterior motives are at work within the group and those associated with the airman start dropping like the insects that frequent the surrounding landscape.

Der achte Band der Serie. “Any crime fan who hasn’t discovered the Dr. Siri books should start here and then work back. This is the eighth and best, and it’s been far too long since book seven.” (The Globe and Mail) (97 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 385 Seiten noch günstig?

Killed at the Whim of a Hat

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

When crime reporter Jimm Juree is forced to quit the city for a fishing village on the Gulf of Siam, she expects much in her life to change. Quiet will replace quick, and, surely, crime will give way to calm. There goes the career, then. Not a chance. No sooner has she settled than a surprise discovery springs from a local well. Two skeletons: both wearing the signs of thirty years of decay, with one also wearing a hat. And, if this wasn’t uncommon enough, a monk is soon killed in a neighbouring town.

Band 1 der Jimm Juree Serie. “I love Colin Cotterill just for introducing me to southeast Asia but the characters are marvelous. They are all a little „off“, but then if you wrote about most people they would be.” (Leserin) (111 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?

The Axe Factor

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

On the gulf of Thailand, the Juree family are managing their run-down beach resort for the second year – still stalked by disaster. Daughter Jimm has a new love in her life, but finds herself pursued by another man with a markedly different agenda in mind. Meanwhile, Jimm’s new case is that of Dr. Somluk, a champion of the rights of rural mothers, who is missing following a run-in with the marketeers of infant formula.

Band 1 der Jimm Juree Serie. “Jimm Juree, the intrepid journalist in the deepest South of Thailand and her family entourage of colourful and occasionally outrageous characters do it again. Families bond, romances are kindled (and extinguished) and murders are solved, all in the inimitable Cotterill style,” (Leser) (52 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 303 Seiten noch günstig?

The Driving Lesson

Jugend-Krimi von Ben Rehder

Charlie Dunbar had big plans for the summer break, but becoming a fugitive was nowhere on the list. Even more unexpected, his partner in crime is his own ailing grandfather. Now they’re on the run, trying to make it across the country to see a special kind of doctor, while the world becomes mesmerized by their journey. They are the subject of heated debates on cable news channels.

Die „Blanco County“-Krimis von Ben Rehder, der auch schon eine Edward-Nominierung bekommen hat, werden von den Fans geliebt. Das ist ein ganz anderes Buch, das aber dennoch viel Begeisterung auslöst. „I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a good adventure, a good storyline between two generations that truly adore one another (it may stir memories between your own favorite grandparent & yourself!), or if you’re out for just a GOOD book.“ (Leserin) (144 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 178 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Whale Whisperers of Ensorclea SciFi/Fantasy von Ed Drury
Auf einem Planeten, der sehr der Erde ähnelt, hat eine spezielle Gruppe von Menschen Antworten, die eine Verschwörung gegen den mächtigsten Führer des Planeten enthüllen können. Die Pläne des Königs für eine bessere Gesellschaft werden von mächtigen dunklen Kräften opponiert. „The Whale Whisperers of Ensorclea by Ed Drury is a very different science-fiction novel – and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s length is short and the cast of characters is fairly small, but the underlying theme is anything but diminutive.“ (Rezensent) (17 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 169 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Black Ice

Thriller von Michael Connelly

When a body is found in a hotel room, the press soon pick up on the case: it appears to be the body of a missing LAPD narcotics officer, apparently gone to the bad. The rumours were that he had been selling a new drug called Black Ice that had been infiltrating Los Angeles from Mexico. The LAPD are quick to declare the death as a suicide, but Harry Bosch is not so sure. There are odd, unexplained details from the crime scene which just don’t add up. Fighting an attraction to the cop’s widow, Bosh starts his own maverick investigation, which soon leads him over the borders, and into a dangerous world of shifting identities and deadly corruption…

Die Harry-Bosch-Romane von Michael Connelly sind längst legendär, weltweit verbreitet und auch von mir mit angehaltenem Atem gelesen. Der zweite Band ist jetzt auch günstig. “Superb writing! Wow! Connelly puts you at the scene and inside Bosch’s mind. His detective is smart, complex, AND empathetic” (Leserin) (1.377 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 388 Seiten noch günstig?

The Borderlands YA-Fantasy von Aderyn Wood
Dale hatte nie ein Gefühl der Zugehörigkeit. Sie verachtet die Menschen in der Schule, die andere tyrannisieren und die Snobs. Und es ist schwierig ihre Familie zu mögen, geschweige denn zu lieben. Rhys, ein neuer Junge in der Schule scheint sich für sie zu interessieren. Aber kann sie ihm trauen? „Easily one of my favourite aspects to the story was the characterisation, the villains are so easy to hate and I found myself urging the heroine, Dale, on with each new challenge. I especially enjoyed seeing her develop and become even more self-sufficient and more capable. Another thrill was the way the non-speaking characters were brought to life through actions and mannerisms, Cat and Esme were great.“ (Rezensent) (24 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 263 Seiten – noch gratis?
