Cast A Long Shadow

Thriller von Kwen Griffeth

“Bad Bobby” Trent, star high school athlete, college scholarship holder, pro-rodeo circuit rider lived an unencumbered life. He was a man, who by his own definition, limited his concentration to no more than eight seconds at a time. The time required to ride a bull or saddlebronc and win. He’s tough, independent, shallow and always looking for a good time. Then his father is murdered.

Der Amerikaner Kwen Griffeth verfasst erfolgreich Romane in ganz unterschiedlichen Genres. „I really love and admire the way this man can write such complex stories, yet in a way that appeals to everyone, in almost every genre. They are written in such a way that they are enjoyable and soothing to read on one hand, yet can bring you out of your chair and pacing, on the other.“ (Leserin) (36 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 302 Seiten – noch gratis?

Fire from Heaven

Historischer Roman von Mary Renault

Alexander the Great died at the age of thirty-three, leaving behind an empire that stretched from Greece to India. Fire From Heaven tells the story of the years that shaped him. His mother, Olympias, and his father, King Philip of Macedon, fought each other for their son’s loyalty, teaching Alexander politics and vengeance. His love for the youth Hephaistion taught him trust, while Aristotle’s tutoring provoked his mind and fuelled his aspirations.

Mary Renault (eigentlich Eileen Mary Challans; * 4. September 1905 in London; † 13. Dezember 1983 in Kapstadt, Südafrika) war eine britische Schriftstellerin. „Renault’s skill is in immersing us in their world, drawing us into its strangeness, its violence and beauty … a literary conjuring trick … so convincing and passionately conjured.“ (The Times) (21 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 448 Seiten noch günstig?

Desert Sanctuary

Thriller von Fred G. Baker

A nighttime drug bust in Phoenix turns deadly. Police Captain Ronald Gurvy shoots it out with gang boss Roberto Gomez and both men are killed. Detective Lori Sanchez is first on the scene and hears a third party running away in the dark. Who was it? The killer or a witness to the murder? When Sanchez is accused of killing both men, Father Guillermo Montero steps forward to help his friend prove her innocence. At the same time he must help a new priest, Father John, protect Latin American refugees and a man seeking sanctuary in John’s church because he saw something no man should ever see.

Fred G. Baker schreibt Sachbücher, Fachbücher als Geologe und Science Fiction und Krimis. “The book contains adult language and very convincing ‘police-banter’, mixed in the conversations. I was impressed with how well the action and plots blended with this dialog, throughout the book. The plot could be as much a retelling of true events as fiction.” (Leser) (4 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 231 Seiten – noch gratis?

Working for Uncle Henry Krimi von Angela Mullins
Familiengeheimnisse, die in Verschwörungen im Zweiten Weltkrieg verwickelt sind, verstricken zwei Cousins in ein Netz aus Mord und Spionage, während sie für ihren Onkel, den pensionierten Oberst der Luftwaffe Henry Archer, arbeiten. Henry Archer ist ein pensionierter Oberst der Air Force mit einer Neigung zur Luftkrankheit. Seine Exzentrizitäten und sein genialer IQ machen ihn, wie Winston Churchill sagen würde, „zu einem Rätsel, das in ein Geheimnis in einem Rätsel gehüllt ist“. Er nutzt nun seine Kunst und seine antiken Geschäfte, um seine geheimen Aktivitäten zu propagieren. „This was an entertaining visit through an author’s interesting mind. She brings lots of intelligence and far-reaching ideas into the story of a family that’s like all families, except for the trust funds, diabolical plots and international intrigue, and also the usual stresses of being a grown-up preacher’s kid sorting through family values that appear to be in flux.” (Leserin) (4 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 247 Seiten – noch gratis?

Cold Iron

Fantasy von Miles Cameron

Aranthur is a student. He showed a little magical talent, is studying at the local academy, and is nothing particularly special. Others are smarter. Others are more talented. Others are quicker to pick up techniques. But none of them are with him when he breaks his journey home for the holidays in an inn. None of them step in to help when a young woman is thrown off a passing stage coach into the deep snow at the side of the road. And none of them are drawn into a fight to protect her.

Der erste Band der Serie Masters & Mages, 2018 ersschienen. „Cold Iron is a fine, well-crafted book made by a master of historical and fantasy fiction.“ (FANTASY FACTION) (59 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 448 Seiten noch günstig?

The Red Knight

Fantasy von Miles Cameron

Twenty eight florins a month is a huge price to pay, for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern’s jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men – or worse, a company of mercenaries – against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder.

Der erste Band der Serie Traitor Son Cycle, 2012 ersschienen. „I haven’t read too many books which make me jump up and pump my fist in the air in triumph. The Red Knight has a ton of great action scenes and some solid character development.“ (Leser) (400 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 657 Seiten noch günstig?

Impossible Dream

Historischer Roman von Gemma Jackson

In 1898 three young girls leave a Dublin orphanage to enter a life of domestic service. They are placed in the home of Captain Charles Whitmore but soon discover that the household is in turmoil. Charles, hoping to amass a fortune, is preparing to set off on a long sea voyage, deliberately leaving his wife Georgina almost penniless to fend for herself and the servants.

Gemma Jackson stammt aus Dublin, war weltweit unterwegs und schreibt jetzt packende historische Romane. “The storyline is so interesting to me as she delves into the lives of women at the turn of the century in Ireland. The ending to this book does not leave you hanging in an annoying way, but definitely leaves you wanting more.” (Leserin) (66 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 418 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Happy Hollisters and the Mystery of the Totem Faces

Kinder-Krimi von Jerry West

This story finds the Hollister family off to Alaska with Uncle Russ and their two cousins, Teddy and Jean. Russ Hollister, a commercial artist and cartoonist, has run out of ideas and is trying to think of a new location for his comic strip characters. The children, whose interest in the Far North has been aroused by an encounter with an old man and the totem pole he brought back as a souvenir of his adventurous days as a gold miner, persuade Uncle Russ to make Alaska the background for his new cartoon series.

Jerry West war eines der Pseudonyme des amerikanischen Autoren und Verlegers Andrew E. Svenson (1910 – 1975). Er hat viele Kinderbücher selber verfasst, aber auch andere Autoren in seine Serien aufgenommen. Die „Happy Hollisters“ sind innerhalb seiner Bücher noch einmal eine Besonderheit, denn es sind seine eigenen Kinder, die Vorbilder für die Helden sind. „I wondered how or if I would still enjoy it as an adult, and I am happy to admit that I still enjoyed it! The mystery still kept me guessing!.“ (Leser) (208 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 168 Seiten – noch gratis?
