Fleeing The Jurisdiction

Witziger Roman von Gerald Hansen

It’s danger on the high seas for the Barnetts, but will it come from the authorities, Mother Nature or family Flood? In Wisconsin six years ago, Ursula Barnett accidentally defrauded her local church of thousands. The statute of limitations is inching closer, and the police are circling in. Panicked, Ursula books herself and her American family passage on a budget centennial Titanic cruise, hoping to ride out the investigation and embark a woman redeemed.

Gerald Hansen lebt heute in den USA, stammt aber aus Irland und schreibt eine lustige Serie von Romanen, die teilweise in Irland spielen. Glücklicherweise ist jedes Buch in sich abgeschlossen und kann einzeln genossen werden. „Hansen again makes us laugh aloud, squirm, wince and groan at the antics of his colorful characters. He picks out the essence of each of them and does with words what the most brilliant cartoonists do with carefully selected features and a few lines with a pen.“ (Rezensentin) (50 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 295 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Curse of the Pogo Stick

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

Following a rash but perhaps not unexpected moment of insolence, Dr. Siri is forced to go on a road trip with Judge Haeng and the Justice Department. On a deserted jungle trail they are ambushed and Siri is kidnapped by Hmong insurgents. His only route to freedom is to exorcise the village of its demon – a task he has no idea how to accomplish. Newly pregnant Nurse Dtui and Dr. Siri’s fiance, Madame Daeng, are left alone to track down an assassin intent on wiping out the mortuary staff.

Band 5 der Serie. “The reason his series continues to be worth reading, is the author’s deep understanding of these people and their beautiful, troubled land . . . Like Dr. Siri, Colin Cotterill has a touch of magic about him.” (Boston Globe) (77 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 225 Seiten noch günstig?

Disco for the Departed

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

opsis
Dr Siri Paiboun may be in his seventy-third year, but he’s still as sturdy as a jungle boar – and as crafty as one. Reluctant coroner to the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, he’s been despatched to the country’s mountainous north where the sudden appearance of a mummified arm protruding from a concrete path laid in front of the President’s new mansion has caused an understandable degree of embarrassment. Dr Siri’s disinterment and autopsy of the body attached to the arm provide some grisly surprises but it is his gifts as a shaman that put the septuagenarian doctor on the trail of the killer.

Band 3 der Serie. “A wonderfully fresh and exotic mystery.” (New York Times) (94 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 272 Seiten noch günstig?

As he learns more about Viola’s life as a drug addict and high-class call girl, he starts to realise that his wealthy client has been economical with the truth.

Shades Fantasy-Thriller von Anders Rauff-Nielsen
Für Blake Beck erweist sich der Tag als nicht gewöhnlich, als er in der morgendlichen Post eine Rasierklinge vorfindet. Als Direktor der verdeckten Operationen innerhalb der CAC hat Blake kaum erwartet, dass die Morgenpost einen Brief enthält, in dem sein Boss ihn auffordert, sich selbst umzubringen. „This is a grown-up urban fantasy story with a ton of historical, philosophical and factual depth. The mysteries (some times very real!) of art, architecture and history is masterfully woven into a story of life beyond death.“ (Leser) (11 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 320 Seiten – noch gratis?
