A Dying Fall

Krimi von Elly Griffiths

Dr Ruth Galloway, forensic archaeologist, spends a lot of time looking at death. But now death has found her, with the news that her long-time friend and ex-colleague Dan Golding has been killed in a house fire. Ruth’s grief soon turns to suspicion of arson when she receives a desperate letter from Dan, sent the day before he died. He had made a ground-breaking discovery that he was sure would change archaeology forever – and was petrified of the consequences.

Saints of Camarillo

Thriller von Dovie Ruth

She would not only study and work at the institution, but would live on the hospital grounds a short distance from the wards and take her meals with the patients. Lacey wanted to learn to work with difficult children, however, Camarillo housed some of the most dangerous youngsters in the State of California.

Dovie Ruth hat in den 1970er Jahren als Kinderpsychologin und in anderen Jobs im Camarillo State Mental Hospital gearbeitet. Viele Jahre später hat sie ihr damaliges Tagebuch in diesen Thriller umgesetzt. “Dovie Ruth provided a very candid perspective to the provocative happenings, staff, teachers and students at Camarillo State Hospital. The author has a beautiful way of describing details so I felt as if I was sharing experiences through her eyes.” (Leserin) (4 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 284 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Villainous Viscount Or The Curse Of The Venns Satirisch-historischer Roman von Lucinda Elliot
Als Clarissa Glendale das Vermögen eines unehrenhaften Onkels erbt, den sie kaum kennt, erwartet sie nicht, in eine Eheschließung mit einem aristokratischen Schatzjäger und wildem, krakeelendem und zügellosem sozialen Außenseiter gezwungen zu werden. “As always, Lucinda’s characters are highly-likeable, despite their foibles. Clarinda has easily taken first place as my favourite heroine of the year. She has a common sense, no nonsense approach to life and marriage that make her immediately appealing. Harley Venn is dastardly, but his heart is in the right place.” (Leserin) (5 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 285 Seiten – noch gratis?

Awakenings

Sachbuch von Oliver Sacks

Hailed as a medical classic, and the subject of a major feature film as well as radio and stage plays and various TV documentaries, Awakenings by Oliver Sacks is the extraordinary account of a group of twenty patients. Rendered catatonic by the sleeping-sickness epidemic that swept the world just after the First World War, all twenty had spent forty years in hospital: motionless and speechless; aware of the world around them, but exhibiting no interest in it – until Dr Sacks administered the then-new drug, L-DOPA, which caused them, temporarily, to awake from their decades-long slumber.

1973 veröffentlicht. “One of the most beautifully composed and moving works of our time.” (The Washington Post) (109 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 448 Seiten noch günstig?

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

Sachbuch von Oliver Sacks

In this extraordinary book, Dr Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities; who have been dismissed as autistic or retarded, yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human.

1985 veröffentlicht. “Populated by a cast as strange as that of the most fantastic fiction. Dr Sacks shows the awesome powers of our mind and just how delicately balanced they have to be.” (Sunday Times) (695 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 289 Seiten noch günstig?

The Island of Echoes

Historische Fantasy von Roman Blair

Six Victorian travelers are headed home when their ship is caught in a violent storm. Off course and shrouded in fog, they have only the outline of a distant island to hint at their position. The group heads for shore, but the island is unlike anything they’ve encountered before. Working to pinpoint their location and discover a way home, the castaways begin to unravel the many secrets of their surroundings while simultaneously exposing some of their own.

Roman Blair ist ein kanadischer Historiker. 16 Jahre lang hat er an diesem Buch geschrieben, letztendlich durchaus erfolgreich. „I was immediately captivated by the Victorian language and the journey these strangers were embarking upon. Roman has a vivid, and beautiful imagination that allows the reader to be catapulted into unique, and fantastical scenes that sparks wonder and frankly awe.“ (Leser) (7 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 218 Seiten – noch gratis?

Louisiana Cooking Kochbuch von Sarah Spencer
In Lousiana wird häufig scharf gewürzt gekocht und häufig mit Meeresfrüchten. Wie immer bei Sarah Spencer mit detaillierten Rezepten, wenn auch, wie von einigen Rezensten beklagt, ohne Bilder. „At best, I hope to come away with a few good recipes. In going through this book, however, I noticed immediately that the recipes are well thought out and explained very well in a step by step process. There is not a recipe in this book that I would hesitate to make. Kudos to you, Sarah. I’ll be serving these up soon!!“ (Leserin) (10 Rezensionen / 3,8 Sterne), 220 Seiten – noch gratis?
