The Circus

Cozy Krimi von A. J. Griffiths-Jones

The year is 1985, and O‘ Hare’s Travelling Circus is touring the country, taking spectacular acts to enthralled audiences across the land. They have entertaining clowns, high-flying acrobats, a muscular strongman, a dare-devil motorcycle stuntman and much, much more. They also have Psychic Sheila – resident fortune-teller and agony aunt – who stumbles through life one disastrous romantic interlude at a time. Of course, no close-knit group would be complete without its fair share of secrets, and who better to uncover them than Sheila, with her sixth sense and natural nose for a good mystery.

A.J. Griffiths-Jones ist eine britische Historikerin und Genealogin. „Psychic Sheila is a highly likable character and I was amused by her Irish mannerisms and drawn to her through her compassion for others. It is through her down to earth humour and warm nature that we are introduced to the circus family, all of whom have secrets which weave the story together.“ (Leser) (21 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 200 Seiten – noch gratis?

Somebody at The Door

Krimi von Raymond Postgate

In the winter of 1942, England lies cold and dark in the wartime blackout. One bleak evening, Councillor Grayling steps off the 6.12 from Euston, carrying GBP120 in cash, and oblivious to the fate that awaits him in the snow-covered suburbs. Inspector Holly draws up a list of Grayling’s fellow passengers: his distrusted employee Charles Evetts, the charming Hugh Rolandson, and an unknown refugee from Nazi Germany, among others. Inspector Holly will soon discover that each passenger harbours their own dark secrets, and that the councillor had more than one enemy among them.

Raymond Postgate, 1896 – 1971, war ein britischer Journalist, Sozialist und Autor. “I actually found this a really interesting and intriguing book. The plot is almost secondary to the almost short story approach to each character, which reveals more than strictly necessary to potential involvement in the murder. Consequently this is not a mystery to read quickly because of the plot and the need to find the guilty person; I found each character’s story well written and providing a fascinating insight into everyday life in wartime.” (Leser) (24 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 233 Seiten noch günstig?

Seven Dead

Krimi von J. Jefferson Fairjeon

Ted Lyte, amateur thief, has chosen an isolated house by the coast for his first robbery. But Haven House is no ordinary country home. While hunting for silverware to steal, Ted stumbles upon a locked room containing seven dead bodies. Detective Inspector Kendall takes on the case with the help of passing yachtsman Thomas Hazeldean. The search for the house’s absent owners brings Hazeldean across the Channel to Boulogne, where he finds more than one motive to stay and investigate.

Joseph Jefferson Farjeon, 1883 – 1955 war ein britischer Krimiautor und Verfasser von Theaterstücken und Drehbüchern und Mitglied einer sehr aktiven Autorenfamilie. “After an excellent introduction from Martin Edwards, the reader is taken to a wonderfully realised land/seascape and drawn in to a fast moving tale. The scene with the bodies is all the more chilling for being described briefly …so much left to the imagination. The potentially tricky relationship between reporter and police is skilfully managed with no ‚amateur bungling‘.” (Leser) (20 Rezensionen / 3,7 Sterne), 234 Seiten noch günstig?

Portrait of a Murderer

Krimi von Anne Meredith

Adrian Gray was born in May 1862 and met his death through violence, at the hands of one of his own children, at Christmas, 1931. Thus begins a classic crime novel published in 1933, a riveting portrait of the psychology of a murderer. Each December, Adrian Gray invites his extended family to stay at his lonely house, Kings Poplars. None of Gray’s six surviving children is fond of him; several have cause to wish him dead. The family gathers on Christmas Eve – and by the following morning, their wish has been granted.

Anne Meredith ist eines der vielen Pseudonyme der britischen Autorin Lucy Beatrice Malleson (1899 – 1973). “Powerful and impressive … there is a fine inevitability in the plot structure which gives it true tragic quality.” (Dorothy L. Sayers) (31 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 249 Seiten noch günstig?

A Kiss Before Killing

Krimi von Keith McCarthy

Edward Marsham is admitted to the Royal Infirmary having hung himself in his prison cell. As predicted, he dies. In the wake of several unexpected deaths at the hospital, however, Dr. Claire Woodforde suspects there is a killer amongst the staff. As Detective Chief Inspector Beverley Wharton and her new sergeant Tom Bayes begin to investigate Marsham’s death, they too start to wonder if it was natural or whether someone… helped him along.

Keith McCarthy ist ein englischer Pathologe und der Autor von (natürlich pathologischen) Thrillern. „I found the credibility of McCarthy’s plot very unsettling which is probably why it works so well. It’s entirely plausible that murders could take place in an environment where lethal drugs are readily available and who would be more able to kill without a trace of evidence than someone with medical training?“ (Leser) (12 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne) 243 Seiten (und nicht 23!) – noch gratis?

The Burning Room

Thriller von Michael Connelly

In the LA Police’s Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet ten years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually non-existent. Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

Band 19 der Serie. “In my considered opinion as a retired cop, no crime fiction author does it better than Michael Connelly. His novels featuring Harry Bosch are the most accurate, realistic portrayals of elite detectives solving the toughest cases.” (Rezensent) (6.472 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?

The Crossing

Thriller von Michael Connelly

Six months ago, Harry Bosch left the LAPD before they could fire him, and then hired maverick Defense Attorney Mickey Haller to sue the department for forcing him out. Although it wasn’t the way he wanted to go, Harry has to admit that being out of the game has its benefits. Until Mickey asks him to help on one of his cases, and suddenly Harry is back where he belongs, right in the centre of a particularly puzzling murder mystery.

Band 20 der Serie. “Connelly continues to write quality crime fiction, and The Crossing is another great character study mixed with a truly baffling puzzle.” (Jeff Ayers, Associated Press) (3.323 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?

The Syn-En Solution

Romantische SciFi von Linda Andrews

Admiral Beijing York volunteers his army of Synthetically-Enhanced soldiers on a mission to settle a new planet. With the promise of freedom and equality, Bei and his cyborgs encounter death and hardship on a one-way trip to nowhere. Bei has two choices: die slowly in space, or return to Earth and make the Humans who betrayed them pay. When Nell Stafford passed out it was 2012. When she wakes up naked aboard a starship it’s 2138, and she’s surrounded by Syn-En carrying a grudge against Humans like her.

Linda Andrews ist eine umtriebige Autorin, vor allem von Fantasy und SciFi, aber meistens mit romantischen Elementen. “Even though the story progresses at neck-break speed, the characters are nicely drawn and quickly become motivation for wanting to see what happens next.” (Leserin) (49 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 281 Seiten – noch gratis?
