Broken Arrow

Thriller von Matthew Pritchard

The discovery of a disinterred corpse at one of Andalusia’s Spaghetti Western theme parks catapults investigative reporter Danny Sanchez into a story with potentially earth-shattering consequences… Initially set on the trail of a brutal killer who burns his first victim alive, Danny soon begins to realise that much more lies behind the killer’s actions than the work of a madman. He soon starts to question whether the man he is chasing is, after all, the true villain.

The Winner

Thriller von David Baldacci

Then a mysterious Mr Jackson makes her an offer he thinks no one can refuse: a guarantee to be the winner of the $100 million lottery. But LuAnn won’t do it. Less than twenty-four hours later, she is fighting for her life and running from a false murder charge. Jackson’s offer – and its condition that she leave the country forever – seems her only hope.

David Baldacci dürfte einer der erfolgreichsten Thriller-Autoren weltweit sein. “This is an entertaining fantasy thriller with an unbelievable and very dangerous sociopath pulling the strings. Baldacci went on to write many successful series but some of the early standalone ones are still among his best.” (Leser) (1.924 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 593 Seiten noch günstig?

The Winemaker Detective Krimis von Jean-Pierre Alaux und Noël Balen
Der meisterhafte Winzer Benjamin Cooker und seine Handlangerin Virgile klären Verbrechen in Weingütern quer durch die französischen Weinanbaugebiete auf. „The principle is that Benjamin Cooker is a respected vintner and writes a wine guide. He hires a new young male assistant, Virgile, in the first story. For the rest of the series they alternate work in Cooker’s own vineyard with travelling around France to other terrains to taste specialty wines and cognacs, as they investigate crimes, which often occur around wineries. Grand Cru Heist also includes a visit to Paris. Since this is France, regional food is almost as important as drink.“ (Rezensentin) (27 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 309 Seiten – noch gratis?

A Fowl of the Law Fantasy von J.R. Traas
Rusk Baernham ist kein Held. Er ist auch kein Zauberer, Schurke, Pfaffe oder Barbar. Auf dem Kontinent hat die Zeit der Legenden vor einer Generation geendet. Das ist die Zeit des Kapitals, nicht von Schwertern und Zauberei vorangetrieben, sondern von den trockenen Zahnrädern und Dampfmaschinen der großen Maschinerie des Fortschritts. „The writing style of J.R. Traas is captivating. I envy the way he paints pictures with words for even the most simplest of details. “ (Rezensent) (4 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne) – noch gratis?

Historischer Roman von Michelle Moran

At the dawn of the Roman Empire, when tyranny ruled, a daughter of Egypt and a son of Rome found each other …. Selene’s legendary parents are gone.

She puts her artistry to work, in the hope of staying alive and being allowed to return to Egypt. Before long, however, she is distracted by the young and handsome heir to the empire…

Ihr dritter Roman aus dem Jahr 2009. “Michelle Moran describes the life and times of the Imperial family and the life in Rome at the time. Her descriptions are fantastic, engaging and vivid. The start of the book is espcially great – the death of Marc Antony and Cleopatra.” (Leserin) (460 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 449 Seiten noch günstig?

The Goddess Of Fortune Alternativgeschichte von Andrew Blencowe
Was wäre, wenn Japan und Deutschland nach nur zwei vergangenen Ereignissen den Zweiten Weltkrieg gewonnen hätten? Die schöne Louise ist nur 24 Jahre alt, aber sie benutzt ihre Intelligenz, ihre Listigkeit und ihren Körper um das so genannte „stärkere Geschlecht“ zu beherrschen. „Written in wonderfully skilled prose, this book manages to take a completely alternate timeline and relate it in such a way that it feels as if the story is actually unfolding before the reader’s eyes. The book takes place in the early 1940s, and follows a number of intriguing characters as they live in the history that Blencowe has created so well.“ (Rezensent) (69 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 364 Seiten – noch gratis?

Adventure and Cycle Touring Reisebericht von Erik Carl Johan Olsson
Ein Schwede radelt nach Gibraltar. Sicherlich anstrengend, aber nicht so abenteuerlich, da es ja durch sichere Gebiete Europas geht. Nun ja, es kommt immer auf die Wahrnehmung an und dieser Autor berichtet lebhaft von seinen Erfahrungen. „I found the book more and more inviting as the journey proceeds. The later chapters tell more of Eriks mind and his views of the people and cities that he stumbles on, rather than simple notes of weather and troubles in finding his way.“ (Rezensent) (7 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 144 Seiten – noch gratis?
