The Poisoned Rock

Krimi von Robert Daws

With only five weeks to go before the end of her secondment to the Royal Gibraltar Police Force, D.S. Tamara Sullivan is enjoying life on the Rock. With one murder investigation successfully under their belts, Sullivan and her commanding officer, Chief Inspector Gus Broderick, settle down to regular police work under the sunny Mediterranean skies. In London, the British Government has declassified a large number of top secret files regarding British Military Intelligence operations during World War Two. One file, concerning espionage operations on Gibraltar, has been smuggled out of the U.K. to Spain.

Robert Daws ist ein beliebter britischer Schauspieler und nebenbei, aber sehr erfolgreich Krimiautor. “Great writing along with a fast moving, skilful plot line, clearly defined, engaging characters and realistic dialogue combine to deliver an excellent read.” (Leserin) (59 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 368 Seiten – noch gratis?

But as his investigations into the past move ahead, the horrific murders of young slave women in the present start to occupy his time.

MYSTERY OF THE EGYPTIAN MUMMY

Historischer Kinder-Krimi von Scott Peters

When 12-year-old Zet comes face-to-face with a whispering mummy, Zet’s eyes practically pop out of his head. Goosebumps race down his neck. Why is a mummy haunting his front door? What does the scary monster want? Zet quickly joins forces with his 11-year-old sister Kat and best friend Hui. The three kids need to unwind this spine-tingling mystery fast, because there’s a zany rumor that they’re cursed. If they don’t, their world might just come unraveled!

Scott Peters hat lange für Museen, wissenschaftliche Zentren und Vergnügungsparks Ausstellungsabteilungen entworfen. Heute schreibt er Krimis für Kinder, die im antiken Ägypten spielen. Und ermöglicht damit auch Erwachsenen unterhaltsame Blicke in das Land und die Zeit. “It is so apparent that the author not only knows a lot about Egypt, there is a deep and abiding love for the Egyptian land and culture which allows one to immerse themselves in the story thanks to the descriptive details which highlight his knowledge and help us picture things wonderfully.” (Leserin) (10 Rezensionen / 4,9 Sterne), 122 Seiten – noch gratis?

Winter Sailor SciFi-Thriller von Blake Wiers
Die Welt verschmolz mit politischem Wahnsinn – Dylan Blake war froh, alles hinter sich zu lassen. Mitten im Winter allein in der Antarktis segelnd, war sie auf das Schlimmste vorbereitet: Eisberge, Riesenwellen, Isolation. Sie hatte keine Ahnung von den Gefahren, die vor ihr lagen. “What you think will be a classic story of sailing adventure in the Southern Ocean becomes something entirely different. There are several big plot twists, and the characters are great. The descriptions of sailing a modern-day racing boat are pretty much accurate and any sailor will enjoy that aspect of it, though sailing knowledge isn’t necessary to get into this book.” (Leser) (4 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 255 Seiten – noch gratis?

Muse Fantasy von Katherine Jean Pope
Eine neue Muse kommt mit drei Dingen in die Dreamlands: einem magischen Buch, einem übernatürlichen Geruchssinn und dem Instinkt, eine Geschichte zu finden, die es wert ist, geschrieben zu werden. Mina ist eine brandneue Muse, aber sie hat bereits Probleme mit den Feenhöfen, den Werwölfen und ihrem Mentor Max. “I have been reading fantasy fiction stories for almost 50 years and am rarely as pleasantly surprised and entertained as I was by this one. Although I thought I saw the end coming, I was wrong.” (Leser) (24 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 360 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Little Village School

Witziger Roman von Gervase Phinn

She was wearing red shoes! With silver heels! Elisabeth Devine causes quite a stir on her arrival in the village. No one can understand why the head of a big inner city school would want to come to sleepy little Barton-in-the-Dale, to a primary with more problems than school dinners. And that’s not even counting the challenges the mysterious Elisabeth herself will face: a bitter former head teacher, a grumpy caretaker and a duplicitous chair of governors, to name but a few. Then there’s the gossip.

Gervase Phinn, geb. 1946 ist ein britischer Autor. Viele seiner Bücher leben von seiner Tätigkeit als Schul-Inspektor. „Well written with a good plot I found it an easy read and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you don’t like acute observation of the behaviour of people, their quirks and speech howlers and a good laugh don’t read it.“ (Leser) (238 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 400 Seiten noch günstig?
