The Drop

Thriller von Michael Connelly

Is it the end of the line for Harry Bosch? When evidence links a brutal murder in 1989 to a convicted rapist named Clayton Pell, the case should be watertight. Pell’s DNA was found on the victim – but he was only eight years old at the time. This is not the only mystery Harry Bosch has to solve. A man jumped – or was pushed – from a window. The victim’s father is Councilman Irving, who’s been intent on destroying Harry’s career for years. Now Irving wants Harry to head up the investigation.

Band 17 der Serie. “The two investigations which make up this novel work superbly together and Bosch’s relationships with his his partner and his „superiors“ at City Hall, his tender moments with his teenage daughter and his efforts in pursuing a new romantic interest against a potent Los Angeles background, all gel beautifully in this first rate crime thriller.” (Rezensent) (1.546 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?

The Black Box

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 18 der Serie. “Plot demonstrates why Harry is such a good detective by not following the logical path but to keep an open mind and to pursue every thread toward solving a mystery most investigators had been willing to assume was a clear cut case of her being killed by a rioter.” (Leser) (3.295 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 413 Seiten noch günstig?

All-Butter ShortDead

Cozy Krimi-Novelle von H.Y. Hanna

Gemma ditches her high-flying job and returns to Oxford to follow her dream: opening a traditional English tearoom serving warm buttery scones with jam and clotted cream… Only problem is–murder is the first thing on the menu and Gemma is the key suspect! And the only people Gemma can turn to for help are four nosy old ladies from her local Cotswolds village – not to mention a cheeky little tabby cat named Muesli.

H.Y. Hanna ist eine Engländerin, die jetzt in Australien lebt – und eine der erfolgreichsten Autorinnen von Cozy Krimis überhaupt. „Great character development, a well written mystery, and laugh-out-loud humor.

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

Satirischer Roman von Michael Chabon

One night in 1939, Josef Kavalier shuffles into his cousin Sam Clay’s cramped New York bedroom, his nerve-racking escape from Prague finally achieved. Little does he realise that this is the beginning of an extraordinary friendship and even more fruitful business partnership. Together, they create a comic strip called ‘The Escapist’, its superhero a Nazi-busting saviour who liberates the oppressed around the world.

Michael Chabon (* 24. Mai 1963 in Washington, D.C.) ist ein amerikanischer Schriftsteller und Drehbuchautor. Für seinen Roman Die unglaublichen Abenteuer von Kavalier und Clay erhielt er 2001 den Pulitzer-Preis in der Kategorie „Fiktion“. „Dazzling. Chabon has not so much attempted the great American novel as brought to life the idea that it had already been written – week by week, in the humble heroism of the comic book.“ (Independent) (1.161 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 658 Seiten noch günstig?

Pepperman’s Promise

Literarischer Roman von Bill Briscoe

In 1966, Jim Pepperman comes home from practice to the news that his dad has died in an oil rig accident. Not only has the high school football star lost his mentor and best friend, but when his mom moves the family from Texas to New Jersey, he’s forced to say goodbye to his home, his team, and his chance for a football scholarship. Facing senior year in a new school with no friends, Jim struggles to keep the promise he made after his dad died to be a substitute father for his two younger sisters and a shoulder for his mom.

Bill Briscoe ist ein amerikanischer Sportfan, weswegen sein Held ein Fußballspieler ist. Aber keine Sorge, auch wenn man daran nicht besonders interessiert ist, sind seine Bücher einfach spannend. “I enjoyed reading your book so much! Everytime I had to set it down I was anxious to get back to it to find out what happened next! I am not a football fan but the story was intriguing.” (Leserin) (55 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 326 Seiten – noch gratis?
