A Murder in Auschwitz

Historischer Thriller von J.C. Stephenson

An SS officer is found standing over the body of a comrade, a smoking pistol still in his hand, a murder in a place of murders. His pleas of innocence force a court martial and he knows that there is only one man in the camp capable of defending him; a Jewish prisoner called Manfred Meyer. Manfred Meyer is forced to build a defence for him in his court martial. Drawing on his years of experience as a criminal lawyer in Berlin, Meyer must unravel the deceit and interpret the lies that infect the concentration camp and work to have him found not guilty.

J.C. Stephenson ist ein britischer Autor. Das ist sein erstes und bisher leider auch einziges Buch, das aber den Lesern ausnehmend gut gefällt. „A Murder In Auschwitz is incredibly well written and researched, expertly weaving the many threads in to one complex plot. The mystery is very intriguing, I’m no Sherlock Holmes, but I couldn’t tell who the killer was, I was at the author’s mercy, believing everything I was presented with.“ (Rezensentin) (74 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 264 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?

Ihre zwei besten Freundinnen begleiten sie und zusammen begeben sie sich zu einem Festival zu Ehren von Ms. Karas, aber rund um deren Tod vor einem Jahr gab es Verdächtigungen. „Enjoyed the fact that the objective of the story was set at the beginning of the book and stayed the objective till the end. It took many a twist and turn to get there but the goal was reached. I loved the quirkiness of the characters.“ (Leserin) (206 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 342 Seiten – noch gratis?

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?

Deathknight

Fantasy von Andrew J. Offutt

Falc of Risskor is feared, respected and obeyed throughout the land. Known as Deathknight, he is an infamous member of the Sons of Ashah – honour-sworn men who preserve the peace had protect the citystates of Sij. Feared. Respected. Obeyed. And perhaps hated… The Deathknight is about to realise just how true that is. When knights of the Order start being killed, Falc must bring justice and seek revenge on the brutal murderer.

Andrew J. Offutt, 1934 – 2013, war ein bekannter amerikanischer Autor von Fantasy und SciFi. Außerdem hat er unter diversen Pseudonymen Unmengen an pornografischen Romanen verfasst. „Deathknight is a surprisingly interesting story, with an unpredictable plot (at least a the beginning) with a unique atmosphere. The story starts to make more and more sense as you gradually become acquainted with the main protagonist and the world that he inhabits.“ (Leser) (3 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 259 Seiten – noch gratis?

Village View: A year on Symi Erinnerungen von James Collins
James Collins ist ein Engländer, der auf der kleinen griechischen Insel Symi lebt. Dort schreibt er Romane und Drehbücher, aber auch interessante Bücher über sein Leben auf der Insel. „Once you start on these books your brake pedal ceases to function – and you find yourself tearing along with James at the wheel living through the cold damp winter, swelteringly hot summer, up and down the Kali Strata steps over and over again, listing to the rantings of the wonderful Alarm Cat, revelling in evening syncopations (you’ll have to read the book to understand that one!), and last but by no means least experiencing the incredible amount of work and dedication it takes to get a film written, funded, and actually made on Symi – a triumph if ever there was one and all down to one man determined never to give up on his dream.“ (Leserin) (6 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 298 Seiten – noch gratis?
