The Freiburg Cabinet

Krimi von Thomas Charrington

Tarquin Stanhope’s cosy London life has taken a sinister turn. He’s being hunted and threatened, but by whom and for what? Those scary letters addressed to a stranger. What do they mean? Why the violence? There’s talk of a cabinet… (yes, a French royal cabinet to be precise, from the Palace of Versailles – a piece worth millions). It was English antique dealer, Oliver Clasper, who hatched the plan to make the counterfeit, but the rash fool stole the idea from Zoltan, and now the Russians want their cut.

Thomas Charrington ist ein britischer Kunsttischler, der seine beruflichen Erfahrungen jetzt in spannende Romane umsetzt. „This is a great romp into the darker side of the art world, Russian gangsters and Romanian ‘questionables’.“ (Leser) (16 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 390 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Continuity Girl

Witziger Roman von Patrick Kincaid

1969. Hollywood descends on a tiny Scottish village for the making of Billy Wilder’s most ambitious picture yet: a sprawling epic detailing The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. But the formidable director and his crew soon come into conflict with Jim Outhwaite, a young scientist seeking evidence for monsters. 2014. Stuck just a short walk from the East London street where she grew up, ambitious Film Studies lecturer Gemma MacDonald is restless and hungry for change. A job offer in the Highlands seems to offer escape – but only at a cost to her relationships with family and an equally ambitious American boyfriend.

Patrick Kincaid ist ein britisch-amerikanischer Autor von Dichtung und Romanen. „Patrick Kincaid beautifully captures time and place and brings a wonderful sense of authenticity to Loch Ness at the end of the 1960s. A real feeling of being there is a key part of the book’s success, not least in the sparkling chapter where our young scientist goes to a party to celebrate the 1969 moon landing.“ (Leser) (34 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 319 Seiten noch günstig?

So Wild a Dream

Historischer Roman von Win Blevins

In 1822, life in Pennsylvania feels hemmed in, and Sam nurtures the dream of a truly free life. Since the return of Captains Lewis and Clark, people are bubbling with stories about the far-off Shining Mountains. Sam gets a job on a riverboat, and the adventure begins. Along the way he finds companions and adventures. For guidance, an educated Delaware Indian and Captain William Clark himself. For friends, a con man, a madam, and an assortment of shaggy people who have tasted the waters of those mountains.

Winfred Ernest Blevins, Jr., geb. 1938, gilt seit Jahrzehnten als der Autor des amerikanischen Westens schlechthin. „The details given when describing Crow Indian garments, the procedure for skinning a buffalo or even a two sentence explanation of a bull boat never seemed pedantic. Instead, it seemed like the speaker was verbalizing thoughts/observations anyone would have observing the same thing.“ (Rezensent) (39 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 381 Seiten – noch gratis?

Drive Nacho Drive Reisebericht von Brad Van Orden und Sheena Van Orden
An einem Nachmittag wie vielen zuvor, saß Brad Van Orden an seinem Schreibtisch. Als ein Mitarbeiter an seinem Fenster vorbeigegangen ist, erlag Brad einem Drang und sagte das Merkwürdigste, an das er denken konnte: „Hey Steve, lass uns dein Hippie-Auto nach Tierra del Fuego fahren.“ Das hat die halbherzige Antwort von Steve herausgefordert: „Ich denke, nicht.“ Aber das ließ Brad in Gedanken zurück. „You wont be disappointed in reading it! Brad and Sheena are such peppy and upbeat folks, and you find yourself laughing with them and loving the humor they see in things. They also have a wonderful eye for the beauty of the things they see.“ (Rezensent) (115 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 340 Seiten – noch gratis?
