Thriller von Toby Neal

Special Agent Sophie Ang’s emotions are battered by a child kidnapping case that goes badly wrong. In tracking the criminal ring, her rogue data analysis program D.A.V.I.D. identifies an anomaly that leads her into a cat-and-mouse game online with a deadly enemy whose motives are unclear. The chase lures her through dark corridors of cyberspace into a confrontation with the violence from her past that sent her fleeing to the United States. She’ll need every skill she’s learned to defeat her worst nightmare–and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Toby Neal schreibt Thriller, die nicht nur voller Spannung und ein wenig Romantik stecken, sondern auch Einblicke in die Landschaft und Kultur von Hawaii bieten. “Once again Toby Neal brings us a realistic, robust female lead with a story that lets us know her better as we read on. Couldn’t leave it for long since she hooks you early on and doesn’t let go.” (Leser) (185 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 270 Seiten – noch gratis?

Dominion

Alternativgeschichte von C. J. Sansom

1952. Twelve years have passed since Churchill lost to the appeasers and Britain surrendered to Nazi Germany after Dunkirk. As the long German war against Russia rages on in the east, the British people find themselves under dark authoritarian rule: the press, radio and television are controlled; the streets patrolled by violent auxiliary police and British Jews face ever greater constraints. There are terrible rumours too about what is happening in the basement of the German Embassy at Senate House.

Eine sehr interessante Vermischung der wahren Geschichte mit Alternativen. “Naturally, the weather is awful, and obliges with a choking, oily fog as our heroes battle against hideous odds to get to safety. But both as a historical novel and a thriller, Dominion is absorbing, mordant and written with a passionate persuasiveness . . . Bravo!” (Independent on Sunday) (1.364 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 604 Seiten noch günstig?

Deep Waters

Krimi von Barbara Nadel

A man’s body, virtually decapitated, is found by the Bosphorus. His identity card names him as Rifat Berisha, an Albanian. The family is impenetrable but when Inspector Cetin Ikmen, whose mother was Albanian, consults his cousin, Samsun, he’s left in little doubt that Berisha’s death is likely to be the result of a fis, an implacable blood feud between rival Albanian families. Which means the blood already shed will have to be avenged. And if the Berishas or their enemies discover Ikmen is from a noted Albanian clan, some of the spilt blood might be his…

Band 4 der Serie. “Another brilliant dig into the underbelly of Istanbul life. More people should know about this excellent author.“ (Leserin) (12 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 452 Seiten noch günstig?

Petrified

Krimi von Barbara Nadel

Summer in Istanbul is hot. The kind of heat that can drive even the sanest people a little crazy… An elderly woman is found dead in a flat with the perfectly preserved body of a young man. In an ancient part of the Jewish quarter, two children are missing. Their father, an artist whose genius borders on insanity, only seems more driven in his work. And a raid on a Russian gangster yields nothing except the dead body of a girl he claims is his daughter. Could the connection to all cases lie in a macabre forgotten art?

Band 6 der Serie. “The author captures the religious [Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Yezidi] and nationalistic diversity of Turkey as well as its geographic location – part of the background involves the run-up to the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.“ (Leser) (11 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 356 Seiten noch günstig?

Dance with Death

Krimi von Barbara Nadel

A body is discovered in a cave in the remote region of Cappadocia, Turkey. The woman died of gunshot wounds, and her corpse has lain undisturbed for twenty years. Inspector Cetin Ikmen is summoned from Istanbul to investigate and discovers a complex web of intrigue. Was she killed by her boyfriend, driven mad by love, or her husband, believing she would never bear the son he wanted so badly? When it is revealed the girl was pregnant when she died, the whispers and accusations increase.

Band 8 der Serie. “Dance with Death was absolutely the right book for us! The book not only tells a great story, there is a list of characters–very important because there are more than one plot–one in Istanbul and one in Cappadocia, both places we were visiting. There is also a short glossary of Turkish words.“ (Leser) (90 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 388 Seiten noch günstig?

Necropolis

Horror-Roman von Shane Simmons

Ancient prophecies, vile creatures of the abyss, and sardonic wit abound in this epic supernatural-suspense mystery/thriller about Rip Eulogy, a modern-day necromancer bridging the gap between the living and the dead for a fee. When the police ask for his help identifying a homicide victim, it’s the body of a past client he finds lying on the morgue slab with no clothes, no I.D. and no brain.

Shane Simmons ist ein kanadischer Mitarbeiter der Filmindustrie und ein Autor, dem es gelingt, dunkle Geschichten mit Humor vermengt zu erzählen. “The author manages to let the black humour shine through main character and necromancer Rip Eulogy’s pragmatic approach to the world of the dead and his own peculiar relationship to it.” (Leser) (7 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 380 Seiten – noch gratis?

Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools Erinnerungen von Victoria Twead
Wenn Joe und Vicky gewusst hätten, wie ein neues Leben in einem winzigen Bergdorf in Andalusien wirklich ist, hätten sie wohl gezögert. Sie haben keine Ahnung von dem Kulturschock, der ihnen bevorsteht. Keine Ahnung, dass sie zögerlich Hühnerhalter werden und den gefährlichsten Gockel Spaniens besitzen. „Whether saved by a mule or sitting at a party table in the middle of the road celebrating a neighbour’s birthday (and blocking traffic), CHICKENS … not only paints a warm, humorous and colourful picture of rural Spain, but also tells of how two zany Brits came to fit right in. Light-hearted and full of sunshine.“ (Leser) (595 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 362 Seiten – noch gratis?
