Time Of Flight

Historischer Krimi von A. C. Koning

It is 1931, and the world has taken to the air: ’You couldn’t switch on the wireless these days without hearing news of the latest feat by Miss Johnson or Commander Kidson; the newspapers, too, were full of their exploits…’ For blind War Veteran Frederick Rowlands, the craze for flying which seems to have affected all ranks of society holds little interest—after all, he is never likely to set foot in an aeroplane… But then a chance meeting with a famous flier draws him into the glamorous—and dangerous—world of aviation, and he finds himself caught up in a web of suspicion, jealous rivalry, sexual betrayal, and murder.

A. C. Koning, eigentlich Christina Koning ist eine britische Journalistin, Akademikerin und preisgekrönte Romanautorin. „But the story itself is also an enjoyable page-turner with a traditional assortment of clues and red-herrings along the way, leading to a most satisfactory explanation at the end, and it’s great fun to keep one’s upper lip stiff and one’s chin up while immersed in another world, presented to us with humour, elegance and understanding.“ (Rezensent) (4 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 282 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?

Cold River Renaissance

Thriller von Enes Smith

It’s day 8 of „The Event,“ a week into an apocalyptic fight for survival following a mysterious nationwide blackout, and the Cold River Reservation–a safe haven for innocent men, women, and children–is under siege: from both cannibalistic invaders and a treacherous serial killer. A pack of unhinged criminals has holed up at Kah Nee Ta Resort; they’re drinking scotch, admiring their trophies–the heads of the tribal members they’ve murdered (and in some cases turned into stew)–and plotting a harebrained advance across the Deschutes River and into the Reservation.

Enes Smith, ein ehemaliger Polizeidetektiv und Professor der Kriminologie, schreibt faszinierende Thriller. „The characters are full of life and vitality, commitment and love. The blending of the American Indian culture with the White culture keeps me on my toes.“ (Leser) (37 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 195 Seiten – noch gratis?

A WOMAN WITH SOMETHING TO PROVE. The agent who takes this walk-in is K. J. Sandoval – a frustrated yet ambitious base chief desperate to prove her worth to the agency and its new director.

Sein neunter Thriller. „This one requires close reading because of the detail involved in a novel involving digital conspiracy and treason, and different levels of national values by the principals. Thus, it may be slower reading than most thriller readers are looking for, but this is a complex novel, with carefully drawn characters, and details that produce a compelling read. This is a brilliant display of the ability of Ignatius to gather a huge amount of digital information, the complexities of national spycraft, a tight photograph of the most important characters and their interplay on an international stage.” (Leser) (458 Rezensionen / 3,7 Sterne), 384 Seiten noch günstig?
