The Governor’s Daughter

Historischer Krimi von Sambath Meas

Anjali Chinak, a strong-minded daughter of a Khmer detective, is shocked by the horrible attack on her Eurasian friend, Esmè Laurent, who happens to be the governor’s daughter of Siem Reap, Cambodge. When the man Anjali is secretly in love with is charged with the brutal crime, she has only days to find the real perpetrator before he is put to death. Could it be the same man who has wreaked havoc in other Southeast Asian countries?

Sambath Meas ist in einem gewalttätigen und kriegerischen Kambodscha geboren und hatte eine harte Kindheit. Schließlich ist die Familie nach Thailand geflohen, wo es ihnen aber in einem Lager auch nicht gut ging, bis sie die Möglichkeit hatten, in die USA zu emigrieren. Heute schreibt sie Romane und Sachbücher über die Geschichte Kambodschas. “From chapter to chapter, you just had to find out what was going to happen next. I also appreciated her thorough research into the culture and history of Cambodia in that era, felt like I was right there with Anjali.” (Leserin) (13 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 286 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Private Lives of the Tudors

Historisches Sachbuch von Tracy Borman

The Tudor monarchs were constantly surrounded by an army of attendants, courtiers and ministers. Even in their most private moments, they were accompanied by a servant specifically appointed for the task. A groom of the stool would stand patiently by as Henry VIII performed his daily purges, and when Elizabeth I retired for the evening, one of her female servants would sleep at the end of her bed.

Tracy Borman ist eine britische Historikerin, die faszinierende Bücher über die englische Geschichte verfasst. “Tracy Borman s eye for detail is impressive; the book is packed with fascinating courtly minutiae … [Borman is] a very good historian and this is a wonderful book.” (Times) (61 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 464 Seiten noch günstig?

Bad Sons

Krimi von Oliver Tidy

David Booker returns to Romney Marsh on the south coast of England for a holiday. He is expecting to spend time helping his aunt and uncle pack up the stock of their second-hand bookshop in preparation for a happy retirement. He arrives in Dymchurch on a miserable April night to find his relatives missing without word or clue regarding their whereabouts.

Oliver Tidy ist ein britischer Krimiautor. Dieses Buch hatte ich 2014 schon mal vorgestellt. Dennoch empfehle ich, es jetzt noch mal herunterzuladen, denn die Neuauflage ist von dem feinen, kleinen Verlag Bloodhound Books. “The story is one of those that starts with a steady pace and adds layers of tension a bit at a time and before you realise it this pair are up to their necks and you can’t turn the pages quick enough.” (Leserin) (153 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 274 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Eyre Affair

Literarische SciFi von Jasper Fforde

Meet Thursday Next, literary detective without equal, fear or boyfriend. There is another 1985, where London’s criminal gangs have moved into the lucrative literary market, and Thursday Next is on the trail of the new crime wave’s MR Big. Acheron Hades has been kidnapping certain characters from works of fiction and holding them to ransom. Jane Eyre is gone. Missing. Thursday sets out to find a way into the book to repair the damage. But solving crimes against literature isn’t easy when you also have to find time to halt the Crimean War, persuade the man you love to marry you, and figure out who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays.

Band 1 von Thursday Next “Neatly delivers alternate history, Monty Pythonesque comedy skits, Grand Guignol supervillains, thwarted lovers, po-mo intertextuality, political commentary, time travel, vampires, absent-minded inventors, a hard-boiled narrator, and lots, lots more…. Suspend your disbelief, find a quiet corner and just surrender to the storytelling voice of the unstoppable, ever-resourceful Thursday Next.” (The Washington Post) (675 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 385 Seiten noch günstig?

Lost in a Good Book

It seems that Landen, her husband of four weeks, actually drowned in an accident when he was two years old. Someone, somewhere, sometime, is responsible. The sinister Goliath Corporation wants its operative Jack Schitt out of the poem in which Thursday trapped him, and it will do almost anything to achieve this – but bribing the ChronoGuard? Is that possible?

Band 2 von Thursday Next “Look, literature doesn’t get any better than this. Creative, funny, deep, well written prose, a lovable character, a wonderfully skewed setting, make that settings, quirky, and fulfilling in every sense.” (Leser) (218 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 388 Seiten noch günstig?

Two Rivers

Historischer Roman von Zoe Saadia

Having survived the failed raid on the enemy lands, Tekeni had no illusions. He was nothing but an enemy cub, adopted into one of the clans, but not accepted, never for real. To fit in was difficult, to run away – impossible. To get into trouble, more often than not, was the only available option. They did not expect anything else from him, anyway.

Zoe Saadia verfasst faszinierende Romane über die Ureinwohner Amerikas aus der Zeit, bevor die Weißen ins Land gekommen sind. „This particular story takes the history of the twelfth century Native American nations describing the vicious cycle of fighting descended between the northeastern tribes and the „Peacemaker“ that pervades their midst with ill-received sanity to instill the Great League of the Iroquois.“ (Leser) (282 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne) 240 Seiten – noch gratis?
