Emergence

SciFi-Thriller von Christopher Hodder-Williams

This is Futureworld, which twentieth century scientists had planned for so desperately in horrifying circumstances.On the outside is a ruined landscape where nature has both suffered and evolved. The world has become a barren wasteland. Has the history of mankind been erased forever? Or has earth been abandoned? Whilst others look on, the terrifying aftermath of mortal life in an alternate dimension plays out and a universal order comes to light…

Christopher Hodder-Williams, 1926 – 1995 war ein britischer Science-Fiction-Autor, Musiker und Komponist. Das ist sein letztes Werk, 1984 erschienen. „This is a story told from a very unique perspective. It is a story of those babies born and raised on this sub and have escaped when they have run low on food and water. The plot is very action packed and unique.“ (Rezensent) (1 Rezension / 4,0 Sterne), 224 Seiten – noch gratis?

Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey

Historisch-biografischer Roman von Countess of Carnarvon

Almina was the illegitimate daughter of banking tycoon Alfred de Rothschild. She was his only daughter and he doted on her. She married the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, at 19, with an enormous dowry. At first, life at Highclere was a dizzying mix of sumptuous banquets for 500 and even the occasional royal visitor. Almina oversaw 80 members of staff – many of whom came from families who had worked at Highclere for generations. But when the First World War broke out, life at Highclere changed forever. History intervened and Almina and the staff of Highclere were thrown into one of the most turbulent times of the last century.

Highclere Castle war der Schauplatz der überaus beliebten Fernsehserie Downton Abbey. Fiona Carnarvon oder Countess of Carnarvon, die selber dort in der Gegenwart eingeheiratet hat, beschreibt in diesem Buch die Geschichte von einer früheren Ehefrau eines der adligen Besitzer des Schlosses in der Zeit vor und während des 1. Weltkriegs. “I found the story of Lady Almina more inspiring and intriguing than the Downton Abbey TV series it inspired. She was a truly remarkable lady living in a truly remarkable time. The descriptions of the lavish house and grounds and the cast of thousands orchestrating the opulent lifestyle of Lady Almina and her husband would make their lifestyle seem shallow if it were not juxtaposed with her extensive charitable work and his archaeological explorations.” (Rezensentin) (1.422 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?

Her writing is beautifully descriptive. I really felt as though I were there, feeling the heat and humidity, smelling the rain or tripping over the dumbest rooster ever, aptly named Stoopid. “ (Leser) (356 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 670 Seiten – noch gratis?

Dead Light District Krimi von Jill Edmondson
So aufgeschlossen sie ist, findet sich die Privatdetektivin Sasha Jackson am unpassenden Ort, als ihr neuester Fall sie in die Welt des kommerziellen Sex‘ führt. Eine stilvolle Bordellwirtin hat Sasha beauftragt, eine vermisste mexikanische Nutte zu finden, was zuerst einfach erscheint. „I also enjoyed the way the story was structured, with most of the narrative coming from Sasha’s point of view but with Mary Carmen also having a say so there is some overlap as the tale unfolds. The red herrings don’t detract from the story in any way as they crop up and are dealt with appropriately.“ (Leser) (23 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 227 Seiten – noch gratis?

Immer die Brautjungfer, niemals die Braut. „My belly hurts and my eyes are full of water from laughing so much while reading this book.

The Poet

Thriller von Michael Connelly

Jack McEvoy is a Denver crime reporter with the stickiest assignment of his career. His twin brother, homicide detective Sean McEvoy, was found dead in his car from a self-inflicted bullet wound to the head–an Edgar Allen Poe quote smeared on the windshield. Jack is going to write the story. The problem is that Jack doesn’t believe that his brother killed himself, and the more information he uncovers, the more it looks like Sean’s death was the work of a serial killer.

Band 1. “With a main character unlike previous others, Mr. Connelly has presented a tale told with the same finesse, character and story development we’ve come to expect from this master of fiction.” (Leser) (914 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 515 Seiten noch günstig?

The Scarecrow

Thriller von Michael Connelly

Jack McEvoy is at the end of the line as a crime reporter. Forced to take a buy-out from the Los Angeles Times, he’s got 30 days left on the job. His last assignment? Training his replacement, a low-cost reporter just out of J-school. But Jack has other plans for his exit. He is going to go out with a bang: a final story that will win the newspaper journalism’s highest honour – a Pulitzer Prize.

Band 2 “I am on record for heaping praise on Michael Connelly’s standalone novels. They are not necessarily superior to the Bosch novels, but they are certainly the equal of those books.” (Leser) (569 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 559 Seiten noch günstig?

Survival Was Only The Beginning Erinnerungen von Andrea Davis
Andrea und Laurence Davis waren an Bord, als am 13. Januar 2012 das Kreuzfahrtschiff Costa Concordia auf Grund gelaufen ist und 3200 Passagiere und 1000 Besatzungsmitglieder in des dunkle Wasser des Mittelmeers geworfen hat. Sie fanden keinen Platz in einem Rettungsboot und mussten um ihr Leben schwimmen, als das riesige Schiff in ihre Richtung umgekippt ist. „This memoir is beautifully written, filled with intense emotion and honesty. Andrea has shared her innermost self with her readers and in doing so, has really made the experience of the sinking ship real to us all. But the fear, the cold, the numbness and disbelief of the accident, the urgency in the drive to live are only the beginning of the story of survival. “ (Leserin) (15 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 131 Seiten – noch gratis?
