Luck and Judgement

Krimi von Peter Grainger

When a worker goes missing from a North Sea gas platform, there seem to be just two possible explanations – it was a tragic accident or a suicide. It does not take Smith and his detectives long, however, to discover that James Bell led a double life back onshore in Kings Lake, a life complicated enough to make him at least one dangerous enemy. Before the case can be unraveled, Smith must get a new team working together; Waters and Murray are still there but one of Wilson’s men is transferred to him, and the female detective constable from Longmarsh poses some unexpected problems for her new sergeant.

Very much enjoyed the book. I love the character(s) and their little mannerisms and quirks. D.C. Smith is someone whose works I could follow for a good long time. „Very much enjoyed the book.

Rules of Civility

Literarisch-historischer Roman von Amor Towles

Set during the hazy, enchanting, and martini-filled world of New York City circa 1938, Rules of Civility follows three friends–Katey, Eve, and Tinker–from their chance meeting at a jazz club on New Year’s Eve through a year of enlightening and occasionally tragic adventures. Tinker orbits in the world of the wealthy; Katey and Eve stretch their few dollars out each evening on the town. While all three are complex characters, Katey is the story’s shining star.

Amor Towles, geb. 1964, ist ein erfolgreicher amerikanischer Romanautor. Das ist sein erster Roman, 2011 erschienen. „Achingly stylish…witty, slick production, replete with dark intrigue, period details, and a suitably Katharine Hepburn-like heroine.“ (Guardian) (2.049 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?

Femme Fatale

Thriller von Dominic Piper

When private investigator Daniel Beckett foils an assault on a young girl in London’s West End, it leads to an offer of work from a sinister and unlikely source in Soho’s Chinatown. But what starts out as a straightforward missing persons’ case soon takes on a more ominous aspect as he discovers a trail of blackmail, sadistic violence, conspiracy and murder, plus an influential, privileged and poisonous presence that seems to permeate all spheres of society.

Dominic Piper ist Autor, Film & Fernsehschriftsteller, Journalist und Drehbuchredakteur. Er lebt in London, Großbritannien. „This is a real page-turner as Beckett unwinds a dangerous and murky conspiracy. The people he’s up against are mysterious and utterly unafraid of getting blood on their hands. Fortunately, Beckett is always the smartest guy in the room – not to mention the most dangerous.“ (Leseri (13 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 565 Seiten – noch gratis?

Bells Above Greens Historisch-literarischer Roman von David Xavier
Nachdem er aus dem Krieg in die Klassenzimmer von Notre Dame von 1950 zurückgekehrt war, hatte Sam Conry seinen Bruder verloren. Peter war der bekannteste Name auf dem Campus, ein Mann, zu dem Sam in jeder Hinsicht hoch geschaut hat. „Just a very lovely story about loss, loneliness and finding love. The characters are real and likeable. The backdrop of Notre Dame in the 1950’s conjures a mood of nostalgia – a return to a time when things were simple and innocent. But then you find this undercurrent of intolerance for those who are different, and you see once again that every era has its complexities.“ (Leserin) (25 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 232 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Spring of Kasper Meier

Historischer Thriller von Ben Fergusson

Berlin, 1946. Everything is in short supply. Including the truth. The war is over, but Berlin is a desolate sea of rubble. There is a shortage of everything: food, clothing, tobacco. The local population is scrabbling to get by. Kasper Meier is one of these Germans, and his solution is to trade on the black market to feed himself and his elderly father. He can find anything that people need, for the right price. Even other people. When a young woman, Eva, arrives at Kasper’s door seeking the whereabouts of a British pilot, he feels a reluctant sympathy for her but won’t interfere in military affairs.

Ben Fergusson ist ein Engländer, der an der Universität von Potsdam Englisch lehrt, als Übersetzer und Lektor im Buchmarkt tätig ist und eigene Bücher verfasst. “Fergusson has already won two awards for this gripping and atmospheric debut, a thriller set amid the rubble of a defeated Berlin in 1945… What follows is original and highly accomplished” (Sunday Times) (100 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?

Mort Morte

Satirischer Roman von David Henry Sterry

On my third birthday, my father, in an attempt to get me to stop sucking my thumb, gave me a gun. “Today son, you are a man,” he said, snatching the little blue binky from my little pink hand. So I shot him. So begins Mort Morte, a macabre, coming-of-age story full of butchered butchers, badly used Boy Scouts, blown-up Englishman, virginity-plucking cheerleaders, and many nice cups of tea.

David Henry Sterry ist ein Amerikaner mit englischen Eltern. Und als Autor, Komiker und Schauspieler bekannt. “Holy mother of murder, Mort Morte! I’m thinking that David Henry Sterry ate Aesop for breakfast one day and burped this book out later that afternoon; there has to be a lesson in here somewhere, but I’m still stunned speechless so I can’t quite articulate it. I think it has something to do with the medicinal qualities of tea …” (Leserin) (37 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 140 Seiten – noch gratis?

AN ITALIAN FAMILY, CAPISCE? Biografie von Lou Baldin
Eine italienische Familie, die im zweiten Weltkrieg verfangen wird und das ganze Drama, das der Krieg in ihrem Leben und dem Leben ihrer Landsleute verursacht hat. Einige Jahre nach dem Krieg ist meine Familie nach Amerika gezogen und hat ihre Bäckerei mitgebracht. „Very interesting story of coming to America with little but a dream to make it, a large family, and faith. The description of war-torn Italy, and the dangers of surviving among rival factions, sure defeat, and terrible consequences for being labeled a deserter is particularly riveting.“ (Leser) (10 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 198 Seiten – noch gratis?
