PARIAH

Thriller von Ward Parker

For Zeke Adams, identity theft isn’t just wrecking his life. It could cost him his life. Fishing on a Florida beach one morning, Zeke Adams makes a horrifying discovery: drowned Haitian migrants washed up in the surf. He is further shocked to learn a half-sister he never knew he had was on their boat. It’s unclear if she survived. And then Zeke’s day gets even worse.

Der Amerikaner Ward Parker stammt aus Florida und auch wenn es den Ort Eden in Florida, wo er eine Weile gelebt hat, heute nicht mehr gibt, hat er ihn in seinem Thriller zum neuen Leben erweckt. “Pariah is a fun, fast-paced mystery packed with plenty of humor. Ward Parker’s love of his home state shines through, as the descriptions of the Florida landscape and oddball characters are beautifully written.” (Leser) (13 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 194 Seiten – noch gratis?

Crickett Krimi von Mike Faricy
Als der faulste Privatdetektiv der Stadt Dev Haskell seine alte Flamme Karen Riley in The Spot Bar erspäht, hat sie sich verändert – zum einen ist sie nicht mehr Karen Riley, jetzt ist sie Crickett und dann ist da der Kinderwagen mit dem zehn Monate alten Oliver. „I laughed my butt off reading Dev’s latest adventure in Crickett by Mike Faricy. Talk about a cast of off the wall characters, this book has it all. Sexy, violent, a mystery within a mystery….every page was so much fun.“ (Leser) (49 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 246 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Empire’s Orphans YA-Fantasy von Robin Kristoff
Im Verlauf von drei Tagen verliert Rogan sein königliches Privileg, sein Land und seine Mutter. Er weiß jetzt, dass sein Vater, der König von Kanrine, die Exekution seiner Mutter manipuliert hat und ist im Heimatland seiner Mutter gestrandet. Er ist angeekelt vor der Idee, nach Hause zurückzukehren und lässt sich herab, für einen Heiler am Ort zu waschen und zu putzen, um zu überleben. „While Rogan and Bryna are young children, their experiences still ring true for a teenage or adult reader. The book is fast-paced, but not so much that the setting loses any description, which Robin Kristoff writes elegantly and vividly.“ (Leser) (7 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 308 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Overlook

Thriller von Michael Connelly

When a physicist is murdered in LA, it seems the killer has no fear of publicity, leaving the body on the Mulholland overlook, a site with a stunning view over the city. And when it’s discovered that the victim turned over a quantity of a lethal chemical to his killer before he died, Harry knows he has more than just a single death to worry about. Alongside the forces of Homeland Security, Harry realises he must solve the murder or face unimaginable consequences.

Band 13 der Serie. “The final chapters contain chases and twists galore – even so, there is time for some of that hard-nosed poetry which makes Connelly a cut above his competitors.” (EVENING STANDARD) (2.094 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 336 Seiten noch günstig?

Nine Dragons

Thriller von Michael Connelly

The shooting of a Chinese liquor store owner in LA brings Harry Bosch back to the Rodney King riots and the moment a stranger gave a young cop sanctuary. Now the debt must be repaid, and Harry soon discovers the old man’s death was no ordinary hold-up. Homing in on clues disregarded by the cops on the scene, Harry builds a picture of corruption and intimidation, with the local triads at the heart of it. But as he tries to build a case and breach the impenetrable wall of silence in the local community, he finds he is taking a dragon by the tail – a dragon whose talons reach well beyond LA, and even the States.

Band 15 der Serie. “Nine Dragons ignites Bosch’s personal and professional lives, bringing them together in an explosive manner….Harry’s feverish race against the clock and the international dateline…plunges the reader into a firestorm of danger and tragedy….To say that Nine Dragons is coiled tight with suspense understates Connelly’s accomplishment in portraying Bosch at the cusp of a new world.” (Los Angeles Times, Paula L. Woods) (1.235 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 385 Seiten noch günstig?

Peanut Butter and Passports Reiseberichte von Tom Gose
Beginnend mit einer Reise nach Hawaii erzählt der Amerikaner Tom Gose über seine Touren nach Peru, Bolivien, Kuba, Kanada, Neuseeland und Irland und verwebt seine witzige Erzählung glatt mit praktisch jedem Aspekt des Reisens. „What I liked most about this book was his down to earth approach filled with descriptions that made me burst into laughter. I can only imagine the pee pee dance in the lobby, the anticipated bear in bear country, and crazy Fruit of the Loom skydivers.“ (Leserin), (14 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 240 Seiten – noch gratis?
