He Died of Murder

According to his order, Master Titmarsh had no enemies, and no one would have had any motive to kill him.

The Boys In The Boat

Historischer Roman von Daniel James Brown

Cast aside by his family at an early age, abandoned and left to fend for himself in the woods of Washington State, young Joe Rantz turns to rowing as a way of escaping his past. What follows is an extraordinary journey, as Joe and eight other working-class boys exchange the sweat and dust of life in 1930s America for the promise of glory at the heart of Hitler’s Berlin. Stroke by stroke, a remarkable young man strives to regain his shattered self-regard, to dare again to trust in others – and to find his way back home.

Ein historischer Roman, der bei Kritikern und Lesern gleichermaßen ein riesiger Erfolg geworden ist. „Shaped by the social, economic and political challenges of the Dust Bowl, Depression and the simmering hostilities in Europe, these young men developed the „harmony, balance and rhythm“ necessary not only to triumph in Berlin but to thrive in life.“ (Leser) (19.928 (!)

They are not there to investigate the businessman’s death, rather the decaying corpse found lying next to him.

The Time and Again Historische Zeitreise-Fantasy von Deborah Heal
Deborah Heal hat drei historische Ereignisse in Illinois aufgegriffen und in Zeitreise-Geschichten verarbeitet. „The three books in this series, Time and Again, Unclaimed Legacy and Every Hill & Mountain, focus on a particular family and historical fact.

Rick Riordan ist mittlerweile vor allem bekannt und berühmt mit seinen Fantasybüchern. Darüber ist ein wenig in Vergessenheit geraten, dass er auch ziemlich coole Thriller mit einem Detektiv in Texas geschrieben hat.

Big Red Tequila

Thriller von Rick Riordan

Everything in Texas is bigger…even murder. Meet Tres Navarre…tequila drinker, Tai Chi master, unlicensed P.I., with a penchant for Texas-size trouble. Jackson „Tres“ Navarre and his enchilada-eating cat, Robert Johnson, pull into San Antonio and find nothing waiting but trouble. Ten years ago Navarre left town and the memory of his father’s murder behind him. Now he’s back, looking for answers.

Band 1 der Tres Navarre Serie. “Tres Navarre has enough cowboy in him to be charming and enough intellectual ability to be much more than a cartoonish hero! Imagine a PhD in English who loves cats with peculiar eating habits and spikes his Big Red with good tequila…hard to fathom but tons of fun.” (Leser) (95 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 399 Seiten noch günstig?

The Widower’s Two-Step

Thriller von Rick Riordan

Tres Navarre has just ten hours before he picks up his private investigator license. On a routine surveillance job, his subject is killed by a gunshot, and suddenly his chances of becoming an official P.I. look like going up in smoke. The victim is Julie Kearnes, a fiddle player who had allegedly stolen the demo tape of an in-demand up-and-coming singer at the centre of a tussle between two agents, one a ruthless manipulator, the other newly vanished. There’s a score to be settled, and Tres isn’t going to come out second.

Band 2 der Tres Navarre Serie. “Tres is stubborn, humorous, makes mistakes but keeps on going to the best of his ability, and of course is a Tai Chi Master. His relationship with Robert Johnson (his Cat) is humorous and extremely human in fact.” (Leser) (49 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 410 Seiten noch günstig?

 Southtown

Thriller von Rick Riordan

Someone is coming to Southtown, San Antonio, and the only thing on their mind is destruction. His name is Will ‚the Ghost‘ Stirman, prison escapee and murderer, and he has one thing on his mind: revenge. That’s a problem for private investigator Tres Navarre, whose boss and mentor Eraiyna Manos has a past with Stirman that puts her on his hit list. As Tres digs into the past, he unpicks a thread he really doesn’t want to pull.

Band 5 der Tres Navarre Serie. “And „South Town“ — a localism for the down-side neighborhoods of San Antonio — runs faster than a Texas road-runner on August asphalt as it hurtles through the diverse worlds of human trafficking, homicide cops and one-hundred-year floods.” (Leser) (24 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 322 Seiten noch günstig?

Rebel Island

Thriller von Rick Riordan

Newly married and with his career as a private investigator behind him, Tres Navarre is expecting a peaceful honeymoon on Rebel Island. Off the coast, however, a storm hovers, and death and destruction soon find Tres once more. A corpse found in the hotel resurrects traumatic childhood memories, and as the rain and wind gather power, the venue’s remaining guests begin to be brutally murdered. Past terrors manifest themselves again, and Tres must decide between vengeance and justice.

Band 7 der Tres Navarre Serie. “I love Mr. Riordan’s style, the way he weaves the story lines, plots and sub plots, twisting and turning right to the end. And in the end, it’s a story not just about intrigue and mystery, but about love.” (Leser) (41 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?

The Valley Of Heaven And Hell Reisebericht von Susie Kelly
Als Fahrradreise ist dieses Buch nicht so bemerkenswert. 500 Kilometer in 3 Wochen sind bestimmt unterdurchschnittlich, was auch an der mangelnden Fitness der Autorin und an der mangelnden Ausstattung ihres Fahrrades liegt. Aber egal, der Reiz des Buches liegt woanders, nämlich in der Beobachtungsgabe der englischen Autorin, kombiniert mit ihrer sorgfältigen Recherche zu den bereisten Orten und ihrer historischen Bedeutung. „History provides the foil to the author’s wry and informative observations about the French countryside, weather, towns, cities, food, people, customs and people. I thought it would all be about Marie Antoinette and a lot of it is, but the author uncovers interesting historical details from other periods, all along the route. But the thread is provided by the Austrian (that was a surprise) Queen and the tale is harrowing and gut-wrenching.” (Rezensentin) (82 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne) 258 Seiten – noch gratis?
