Lost In Juarez

Thriller von Douglas Lindsay

When Lake Weston falls foul of government censorship, he decides it’s time to make a stand. The security services, however, are ready for him. They know where he is. They know what he’s thinking. Suddenly people are dying and Weston’s name is being dragged through the mud. From the Highlands of Scotland to the streets of London, Weston is hounded, his life ruined, his career in tatters. The government, however, are about to find out just how much difference one man can make.

Der schottische Autor Douglas Lindsay ist vor allem bekannt für seine schrägen Thriller um den Frisör Barney Thomson. Dies ist ein Buch außerhalb der Serie, aber auch typisch für den Autor, gut geschrieben und mit Humor gespickt. „What a fantastic book, great characters, great insight and understanding of both the Scottish Highlands and London. He paints a fantastic picture of the scenery around Ben Wyvis. Good plot, very believable and really funny in places with excellent use of language.“ (Leser) (27 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 268 Seiten – noch gratis?

Kiss of the Cobra

Historische Fantasy von Peter Tremayne

Hising, writhing, the venomous cobra seeks out its prey… When Sir Keith Chase of Oxford University and Chandra Sen stumble upon the sacred crypt of Monosha in West Bengal, they think it is the archaeological find of the century. What Keith didn’t know was that by breaking open the musty burial chamber, he had brought upon himself one of the most ancient and terrifying curses known to Man. The mysterious Temple of Anant, the burial location of Anandatirtha and his low caste wife, Khullana, is guarded by Lord Shiva, God of Destruction and his wife Durga. The depth of the couple’s love touched the hearts of the deities, who swore a pact with Anandatirtha to protect them within the sanctuary of the temple.

DISGUISED AS THE DEVIL Historisches Sachbuch von M. M. Drymon
Lyme-Borreliose ist eine wirklich unangenehme Infektion, die meistens durch Zecken ausgelöst wird. Als die amerikanische Historikerin M. M. Drymon selber davon betroffen war, hat sie sich gefragt, wie diese Erkrankung die Geschichte beeinflusst hat und hat umfangreiche Recherchen angestellt. Unter anderem ist sie zu dem Schluss gekommen, dass vielfach die Hexen, in Europa und Amerika davon betroffen waren und durch ihr Erscheinungsbild der Hexerei beschuldigt wurden. „This is an in-depth study of the history of Lyme disease. It is well-researched and includes a vast amount of information. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the effects of Lyme disease over human populations across the ages, and especially to anyone interested in early American history since, as the author clearly explains, Lyme disease caused great suffering among the early settlers, something I was not aware of before reading this book.“ (Leser) (14 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 296 Seiten – noch gratis?
