Hunting Truffles

Krimi von Dick Rosano

Northern Italy is the cradle for a precious culinary gem: the white truffle of Piedmont. Worth more than gold, the truffle is sought after by chefs and foodies alike. But this year, the truffle hunters are in a panic as they discover that their usual harvest has been stolen from under their feet. Inexplicably, the bodies of murdered hunters turn up, but there are no truffles to be found.

Dick Rosano hat für renommierte Zeitungen und Zeitschriften Kolumnen über Reisen, Wein und Kulinarik verfasst und Sachbücher über diese Themen. Seit neuestem verfasst er Krimis, die in Italien spielen und in denen die Kochkultur und der Wein des Landes eine gewichtige Rolle spielen. „The reader will come away with a better understanding of the fine art of Italian cuisine, the intrigue of truffles, and the art of wine pairing. While reading „Tuscan Blood,“ I felt I should be drinking a glass of red wine. While reading „Painting Truffles,“ I found myself craving risotto al tartufo bianco or ossobuco.“ (Leser) (4 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 337 Seiten – noch gratis?

Heinrich Franz, ein kalter und berechnender Ermittler hat die Aufgabe herauszufinden wer – oder was auch immer – der Mörder sein könnte. „As the body count grows, you are soon thoroughly immersed in 16th Century Europe with all its brutality, religious conflict, power and poverty, good versus evil.

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

SciFi von Becky Chambers

When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn’t expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that’s seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past. But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptillian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running.

Becky Chambers hat das Buch über Crowdfunding bei Kickstarter finanziert und erfolgreich selber veröffentlicht. So erfolgreich, dass die renommierten Verlage Hodder & Stoughton (in Großbritannien) und Harper Voyager (in den USA) zugegriffen haben. “The story and its characters do brim with humor, but despite the Douglas Adams-esque title, it’s neither absurdist nor a comedy – it’s a rollicking story wrapped around ethical, cultural, and political puzzles set on a grand – and thoroughly believable – galactic scale.” (Leser) (736 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 519 Seiten noch günstig?

Der Engländer Jason Smart ist weitgereist, über 100 Länder hat er besucht. Daraus sind Reiseberichte in Zeitschriften und Bücher entstanden. „Well you know what you re getting with Jason Smarts books… A smattering of humour,,, a bit of useless ( or useful ) information, a fair chunk of history and quite a bit of travel. I do enjoy these book and have never been disappointed with any of them. This time the author is doing a whistle stop tour of as many places in Europe as possible, although we dont a huge amount of time in each place I think theres enough to get the basic feel of the area.“ (Leserin) (6 Rezensionen / 3,5 Sterne) 263 Seiten – noch gratis?
