Berkley Street

Horror-Roman von Ron Ripley

Shane Ryan returns to Nashua and the childhood memories that drove him to join the Marines. After a prolonged legal battle with his aunt and uncle, Shane has possession of the family home where his parents disappeared over 20 years ago. The house, a monstrous castle filled with ghosts and secrets, is more alive than its inhabitants. When his aunt and uncle come to town, then vanish, Shane’s life takes a turn for the worse.

Ron Ripley ist neben einem großen Friedhof aufgewachsen und die abendlichen Grusel-Besuche haben seine Neigung zum Horror erweckt, die er jetzt als Autor auslebt. „I don’t know what author Ron Ripley’s nightmares are like, but he certainly knows how to bring on the scares, in every single story. BERKLEY STREET is frightening, very much, and I finished unsure which scared me more: the haunts, or the humans [shudder].“ (Leser) (189 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 192 Seiten – noch gratis?

Thriller von Deon Meyer

An antiques dealer is burned with a blow torch, then killed, execution-style – a single shot to the back of the head with an M16. The contents of the safe are missing and the only clues are a scrap of blank paper and the unusual weapon used, the choice of mercenaries, not burglars. Now ex-cop Zatopek ‚Zed‘ van Heerden has fourteen days in which to fill in the blanks in this dead man’s past – a past which only seems to begin in 1983.

In a compelling, richly researched novel that draws from hundreds of letters, diary entries and original sources, prize-winning author JONATHAN KIS-LEV tells the fascinating, untold story of the mentorship between Leo Tolstoy and Mahatma Gandhi.
