Knee Deep

Abenteuer-Thriller von MAC FORTNER

Cam Derringer, Key Wests wildest P.I., searches for the men who murdered his wife four years ago. The trail is getting colder until a beautiful and powerful woman shows up and works her way into Cam’s life. She lies to him about everything.

Der Gitarrist und Songschreiber Mac Fortner hat schon in seinen Liedern Geschichten erzählt, kein Wunder, dass er sich den Möglichkeiten von Romanen zugewendet hat. “In Knee Deep, the plot starts off simply enough, but soon turns into a complicated maze of deceit, revenge, and intrigue.” (Leserin) (20 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 289 Seiten – noch gratis?

Fifteen Postcards

Zeitreise-Fantasy von Kirsten McKenzie

Following the unexplained disappearance of her parents, and in a last ditch attempt to save the antique store she has inherited from financial ruin, Sarah Lester takes on a deceased estate. Amongst the estate is a collection of vintage postcards which lead Sarah on a journey through time. Sarah is unprepared for what these postcards hint at about their reclusive former owner, and soon they complicate her life in unimaginable ways, transporting her to Victorian London, colonial New Zealand and to the British Raj in India. Sarah has to fight her twenty-first century instincts, and a century of emancipation, to survive.

Die Neuseeländerin Kirsten McKenzie war sowohl in England als auch Neuseeland Zollbeamtin, bis sie in dem Antiquitätenladen ihrer Eltern gearbeitet hat – und letzteres hat stark dieses Buch beeinflusst. “The time travel episodes are bound together by Sarah’s real-world, modern-day life as a second-hand and antiques shop owner in London. McKenzie’s historical scenes are well researched, and her modern-day London scenes reveal a fascinating side of the world of antique auctions. Her taut writing skills keep the many threads of this story separate but resolutely pulling towards the inevitable, dramatic climax.” (Leserin) (75 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?

The Secret Life of Bletchley Park

Historisches Sachbuch von Sinclair McKay

Bletchley Park was where one of the war’s most famous – and crucial – achievements was made: the cracking of Germany’ s “Enigma” code in which its most important military communications were couched. This country house in the Buckinghamshire countryside was home to Britain’ s most brilliant mathematical brains, like Alan Turing, and the scene of immense advances in technology – indeed, the birth of modern computing. The military codes deciphered there were instrumental in turning both the Battle of the Atlantic and the war in North Africa.

Sinclair McKay ist ein britischer Literaturkritiker bei Zeitungen und der Autor unterschiedlicher Sachbücher. “KeMcKay’s book is an eloquent tribute to a quite remarkable group of men and women, whose like we will not see again.” (Mail On Sunday) (529 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 372 Seiten noch günstig?

The Bletchley Girls

Historisches Sachbuch von Tessa Dunlop

A refugee from Belgium, a Scottish debutante, a Jewish 14-year-old, and a factory worker from Northamptonshire – the Bletchley Girls confound stereotypes. But they all have one common bond, the war and their highly confidential part in it. In the middle of the night, hunched over meaningless pieces of paper, tending mind-blowing machines, sitting listening for hours on end, theirs was invariably confusing, monotonous and meticulous work, about which they could not breathe a word.By meeting and talking to these fascinating female secret-keepers who are still alive today, Tessa Dunlop captures their extraordinary journeys into an adult world of war, secrecy, love and loss.

Tessa Dunlop ist eine britische Historikerin mit Beiträgen im Fernsehen, Radio und Zeitungen und historischen Sachbüchern. “Dunlop is engaging in her personal approach. Her obvious feminine empathy with the venerable ladies she spoke to gives her book an immediacy and intimacy.” (Daily Mail) (118 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?

Alan Turing: The Enigma Man

Biografie von Nigel Cawthorne

According to Winston Churchill, Alan Turing made the single biggest contribution to the Allied victory over Nazi Germany with his code-breaking machine. The world is also indebted to Turing’s genius for the modern computer. It was clear that Turing had a remarkable mind from an early age. He taught himself to read in just three weeks. At his first school, the headmistress said, ‚I have had clever and hardworking boys, but Alan has genius.‘ In 1954, he was found dead, poisoned by an apple laced with cyanide.

Nigel Cawthorne ist ein überaus umtriebiger britischer Autor von Sachbüchern und Romanen. “This is a well written book that provides a detailed account of Turing’s life and accomplishments. It provides detailed, but understandable, descriptions of the operation of the Enigma machine and the ingenious means employed to break it.“ (Leser) (75 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 128 Seiten noch günstig?

Locked Tight

Fantasy-Jugendbuch von Susan Kaye Quinn

Zeph can break open the toughest minds—or lock the weakest—which only means every Clan leader wants to own him. He did as he was told, kept his head down, and tried to shut out the screams. But when they came after his family, he hugged his kid sister goodbye and ran away to keep them safe. For two years, he’s passed as a reader. Then his family disappears, readers start changing into super jackers, and Zeph is forced to return to a city filled with jackers who hate him.

Susan Kaye Quinn war eine sehr erfolgreiche Raketen-Wissenschaftlerin, bis sie sich zur erfolgreichen Autorin von Fantasy und Science Fiction für jugendliche und erwachsene Leserin gewandelt hat. „What I like about this story is that it’s not often predictable. When you think that you’ve figured out where things are going, a character does something surprising, or an event leads things in a completely different direction.“ (Leser), (47 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 271 Seiten – noch gratis?
