The Shadowcutter

Historischer Krimi von Harriet Smart

Police surgeon Felix Carswell has joined Major Giles Vernon and his convalescent wife, Laura, for a few days in the elegant spa town of Stanegate – it’s a welcome holiday from the summer stench of Northminster. But no sooner has he arrived than a Spanish colonial gentleman, dying of consumption, requires his urgent care, while Major Vernon is called away to Lord Rothborough’s country house, where a lady’s maid has been found drowned in a secluded pool.

Harriet Smart lebt in Schottland, genauer gesagt in Edinburgh und schreibt faszinierende historische Krimis. „This is another good 1840s murder mystery. There are a lot of good descriptions of life in England at that time and the characters are well drawn and interesting.“ (Rezensent) (38 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 379 Seiten – noch gratis?

Literarischer Roman von Jim Powell

Change is in the air in a shabby apartment in the 19th arrondissment in Paris. One unremarkable day Madame Lefèvre invites Feliks to call her Sandrine. As his indomitable landlady’s manners have been as unvarying as her dresses for the last 36 years, this feels significant to Feliks. And it is. As the face of Europe transforms beyond recognition Feliks’s own life teeters on the edge of change.

Jim Powell, geb. 1949, ist ein britischer literarischer Autor. “This journey is both sad and uplifting by turns and proved an outstanding read. This story is fiction, but could so easily be mirrored in the real lives of countless others. I found Jim Powell a fine and distinctive voice, bringing this story to life, and I recommend it very highly indeed.” (Leser) (41 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 351 Seiten noch günstig?

Helix of Cole

Krimi von Micheal Maxwell

Writers hope their words will live forever, but Cole Sage never dreamed that an old article on the radicals of the Vietnam War era would ignite a string of terrorist bombings and threaten to destroy San Francisco. Radicalized in a cult commune, Jason Reed has trained dozens of terror groups, both foreign and domestic. Now he’s on a peyote-fueled mission to show Cole Sage the Sixties aren’t over. In a last revolutionary act, Reed hopes to unite the world’s radicals to save Mother Earth.

Der dritte Band einer langen und beliebten Serie um einen liebenswerten Krimihelden. „The appeal for me is a story told, not from the words on a page, but as if the story teller is right across from me. If I can see the surroundings or hear the sounds of city and can smell the mist in the air, I have become a part of it.“ (Leserin) (88 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 298 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Coral Thief

Historischer Roman von Rebecca Stott

It’s a hot August night in 1815, a few weeks after Napoleon’s surrender to the Allied Forces at Waterloo. Daniel Connor, a brilliant and ambitious student from Edinburgh Medical School, is travelling to Paris by mail coach carrying rare historical specimens and letters of introduction to the illustrious Professor Cuvier at the Jardin des Plantes, a botanical and zoological garden on the banks of the Seine. In the coach he encounters a strikingly tall dark-haired woman with heretical ideas about transmutation and the theory of evolution.

Rebecca Stott (geboren 24. September 1964 in Cambridge) ist eine britische Literaturwissenschaftlerin und Schriftstellerin, sowohl von Sachbüchern, als auch Romanen. “I loved how Rebecca Stott wove a wonderful story out of the strands of what was really going on the biological sciences just before Darwin. I was compelled to read this after I read two of her nonfiction books, Darwin and the Barnacle and Darwin’s Ghosts.” (Leser) (42 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 306 Seiten noch günstig?

Toto’s Tale and True Chronicle of Oz

Pastiche von Sylvia Patience

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written in 1900 by L. Frank Baum. Many other Oz books followed, as well as the famous 1939 movie. Not until now, however, does Toto tell the story, as he remembers it. In Toto’s Tale, we read his version of the beloved adventures. Toto tells how he first found Dorothy when she arrived in Kansas on an orphan train and how they were both adopted by Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. In the end, he says, the silver shoes (not ruby slippers as in the movie) weren’t lost in the desert, but put to good use.

Sylvia Patience hat es geschafft, einen beliebten Klassiker neu zu erwecken – aus der Perspektive eines Hundes. “This tale has all the classic, old-fashioned charm of the original stories with a fresh perspective. This book evokes a simpler day and age and is very sweet in an era where that’s a rare commodity.” (Leser) (21 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 248 Seiten – noch gratis?
