Ninth Cycle Antarctica

Thriller von JC Ryan

In November 2002 a special U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to Antarctica to locate and rescue a film crew that has become lost. No trace of them is found, except for film footage of strange artifacts buried under the ice. Everyone who saw the film is warned to never talk about what they have seen – EVER AGAIN. More than a decade later, in Boulder, Colorado, Professor Charles Summers is intrigued by the discovery of a 16th century map showing the coastline of Antarctica so accurately that when NASA investigates the maps they find that they must update their own current maps!

JC Ryan ist ein australischer Thriller-Autor, dessen Bücher oft einen historischen und archäologischen Hintergrund haben. „It’s suspenseful in the truest sense of the word and there are 2 threads going on at once to keep you fascinated: both the contemporary game of cat and mouse with the evil Orion Society and the mystery of the ancient civilization that may or may not have existed and may or may not be found.“ (Leser) (251 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 336 Seiten – noch gratis?

April 1957 in Worthing, West Sussex) war ein irischer Schriftsteller. “This is Freeman Wills Croft at his best with a fiendish plot which hangs on precise timing, the spirit of place with some scenes in France and his usual technical bent, in this instance linked to shipping.” (Rezensentin) (27 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 256 Seiten noch günstig?

Horror-Roman von Patrick Logan

Becoming Mrs. Smith Historischer Liebesroman von Tanya E Williams
Nicht jede Zerstörung findet im Krieg auf dem Schlachtfeld statt. Das Herz von Viola schlägt wegen dem Scharlach, den sie als Kind überlebt hatte, ungleichmäßig und es schlägt schneller beim Anblick von John Smith, dem Mann, den sie vorhat zu heiraten. Amerika ist in den Zweiten Weltkrieg verwickelt und als John sich freiwillig meldet, ist sich Violet sicher, dass sie ihm niemals vergeben wird, ihre Träume zerstört zu haben. „Ms. William’s novel gently takes the reader’s hand – down the path of understanding wartime through those left behind.

The Cheltenham Square Murder

Krimi von John Bude

In the seeming tranquility of Regency Square in Cheltenham live the diverse inhabitants of its ten houses. One summer’s evening, the square’s rivalries and allegiances are disrupted by a sudden and unusual death – an arrow to the head, shot through an open window at no. 6. Unfortunately for the murderer, an invitation to visit had just been sent by the crime writer Aldous Barnet, staying with his sister at no. 8, to his friend Superintendent Meredith.

John Bude war das Pseudonym, das der englische Theaterproduzent und -direktor Ernest Carpenter Elmore (1901–1957) für seine Krimis verwendet hat. “I’m so glad this was reissued as British Crime Classic. I liked the rural setting. Character of Inspector Littlejohn is very likable. He seems to be at the right place at the right time gather information from important witnesses. It was slow to begin with but there’s enough plot twists to keep the reader interested.” (Rezensent) (39 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 257 Seiten noch günstig?

The Fabric of Murder

Historischer Krimi von William Savage

Norwich in the 1760s is one of the largest and most prosperous cities in the realm. Its wealth comes from a booming trade in the famous “Norwich Stuffs”—fine worsted cloth, often richly dyed and embroidered. So when a leading cloth-manufacturer in the city is murdered and his business seems on the brink of collapse, there is a real fear that a forced sale of his huge stocks of cloth will ruin the trade for everyone else. Who killed him? Who is the strange, unknown, but apparently wealthy man who is trying to secure the dead man’s stocks to sell overseas?

William Savage ist ein Engländer, der sich auf historische Krimis in Norfolk, Ende des 18. bis Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts spezialisiert hat. „I also thought that the times were well depicted and historically accurate. Very much enjoyed the description of Norwich during the period and some insight into the Guild’s of the time.“ (Rezensent) (18 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 247 Seiten – noch gratis?

Never Mind the Vampires, Here’s Transylvania Biografische Erzählungen von Mike Ormsby
Mike Ormsby ist ein englischer Autor, der lange Zeit in verschiedenen Orten in der Welt gelebt hat und schließlich mit seiner Frau nach Rumänien, genauer Transsylvanien gezogen ist. Mit Humor und Einfühlungsvermögen erzählt er über seine neuen Mitbewohner. „I love the idea and title of this book! As Transylvania based – I find this book a wonderful way of presenting some real meat on the bones about realities here beyond stereotypes that say little about the complexity and richness of the fabric of life here as anywhere. Great to have a foreigner from the culture coming in with eyes that see aspects of reality in a fresh way, opening up new perspectives.“ (Rezensentin) (8 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 197 Seiten – noch gratis?
