Black Frog

Thriller von B.D. Smith

When opponents of a planned resort development on Moosehead Lake in northern Maine start turning up dead, Detective Doug Bateman of the Maine State Police is called in. Concurrently, Investigator Anne Quinn with the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office is looking into a series of bizarre assaults on women. As the parallel investigations unfold, Bateman and Quinn each find their cases becoming more complex and more disturbing.

B.D. Smith war als vorgeschichtlicher Archäologe tätig und hat darüber Sachbücher und Artikel verfasst. Jetzt hat er sich erfolgreich dem Schreiben von Thrillern zugewandt. „The serial rapist seems to be of a religious sex cult. All very weird but oddly compelling. There are also professional and romantic undercurrents.“ (Rezensent) (1 Rezension / 4,0 Sterne), 207 Seiten – noch gratis?

Neben ihren überaus beliebten Krimis mit der forensischen Archäologin Ruth Galloway verfasst die Engländerin Elly Griffiths auch eine Serie, die in den Jahren um 1950 spielt.

Smoke and Mirrors

Krimi von Elly Griffiths

Brighton, 1951. Pantomime season takes a dark turn when two missing children are found dead under the snow, surrounded by sweets – a macabre, real-life Hansel and Gretel. DI Edgar Stephens has plenty of leads to investigate. The missing girl, Annie, used to write plays and perform them with her friends. Does the clue lie in Annie’s unfinished – and rather disturbing – last script? Or might it lie with the eccentric actor types who have assembled for the pantomime?

Band 2 der Serie. „One of the things that I like about Elly Griffiths books is that they are all different. Some authors seem to stick to the same plot every time, but not Elly. This mystery is well plotted, the pantomime clever and the characters are believable.“ (Leserin) (145 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?

The inventor of the trick, Max Mephisto, is an old friend of Edgar’s. They served together in the war as part of a shadowy unit called the Magic Men. Max is still on the circuit, touring seaside towns in the company of ventriloquists, sword-swallowers and dancing girls. Changing times mean that variety is not what it once was, yet Max is reluctant to leave this world to help Edgar investigate. But when the dead girl turns out to be known to him, Max changes his mind.

Band 1 der Serie. „Clever, immensely likeable…Captivating…The Zig Zag Girl is old-fashioned in the best ways.“ (The Wall Street Journal) (230 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 338 Seiten noch günstig?

Honeymoon in Rio

Historischer Krimi von Nick Aaron

In 1952 there were children everywhere. Or so it seemed to Daisy Hayes, blind since birth, who at the age of 29 had just tied the knot for the second time—to an intercontinental pilot. But on their first flight as a married couple an engine broke down—sabotage?—and they were grounded. Now, there are worse places to stop over for repairs than Rio de Janeiro, especially if you’re staying at a grand hotel on Ipanema Beach. But then again, Daisy wouldn’t be our favourite blind sleuth if during her stay she hadn’t stumbled on a murderous plot that exposed her to mortal dangers.

Nick Aaron ist ein Niederländer, geboren in Südafrika, hat in verschiedenen Ländern gelebt und arbeitet jetzt in Brüssel. “The characters are relatable, descriptive, and intriguing especially the personality of Daisy. The time of the story is around World War II and afterwards. My understanding of the characters and their personality is unique to the times.” (Leser) (4 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 225 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Tide of War SciFi von Lori A. Witt
Lieutenant Commander Kyle West ist einer der größten Jagdflugzeugpiloten der Unified Fleet. Jeden Tag führt er seine Staffel in einem scheinbar endlosen Krieg gegen eine bösartige außerirdische Rasse in den Kampf um die Städte der Erde und verteidigt sein Zuhause und seine Lieben. „But best of all is the plot. Clues as to what is at stake are dropped carefully throughout the book so the reader is a step or two ahead of the protagonists, but that is understandable – we are seeing the whole picture, they are seeing bare glimpses through a haze of gunfire, grief and exhaustion.” (Leser) (16 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 373 Seiten – noch gratis?

Missed Connection Liebesroman von K. Larsen und Mara White
Zwanzig Jahre reichten beiden nicht aus, um einander zu vergessen. Eine zufällige Begegnung, eine verpasste Verbindung. Zwei eigensinnige Sterne, die in einem turbulenten Himmel aufeinanderprallten, am richtigen Ort, aber zur falschen Zeit in ihrem beider Leben. Was passiert, wenn sie sich wieder sehen? Fliegen die gleichen unvergesslichen Funken immer noch? „Quite different second chance kind of story. Definitely an emotional rollercoaster. Titan Jennings and Jesenia Van Buren met in a diner 20 yrs ago and now thanks to the internet they meet again. Beautiful story but so many tears.” (Leserin) (114 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 329 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Happy Hollisters and the Mystery of the Golden Witch

Kinder-Krimi von Jerry West

When the Hollister family set off in the station wagon to buy a Halloween pumpkin, the last thing they ever expected was a mysterious adventure. But then they stopped to help Farmer Johnson, whose wagonful of pumpkins had tipped over, and from the old barn near the farm house came a frightening sound . . . “Ooga, ooga!” Everyone jumped. Then Pete and Pam ran to investigate, but Farmer Johnson stopped them.“That’s only the horn from my old car. No need to get scared.” But who had blown the horn?

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. „The Happy Hollister’s series are stories that contain good character examples with children learning to work for things and not just expect things without personal and honest effort. They also exhibit self sacrifice for the benefit of others.“ (Leser) (7 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 138 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Raven Tower

Fantasy von Ann Leckie

Listen. A god is speaking. My voice echoes through the stone of your master’s castle. The castle where he finds his uncle on his father’s throne. You want to help him. You cannot. You are the only one who can hear me. You will change the world.

Ann Leckie ist eine amerikanische Science-Fiction- und Fantasy-Schriftstellerin. “Words that come to mind are: subtle, subversive, experimental, and creative. I love the protagonist. I love the story. I love the way it unfolds. I love the world building. I love the way the book makes you think.” (Leser) (124 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 432 Seiten noch günstig?

Israel’s Edge Sachbuch von Jason Gewirtz
Anstatt trainiert zu werden, um zu kämpfen, werden den wenigen Soldaten, die jedes Jahr für den Talpiot ausgewählt werden, das Denken beigebracht. Um dieser Einheit beitreten zu können, müssen sie sich verpflichten, zehn Jahre lang in der Armee zu sein, anstatt der drei Jahre, die ein normaler Soldat dient. „Gewirtz makes a convincing case that Talpiot is an important part of Israel’s success. Even if it isn’t, learning about the program was fascinating on its own regard. Indeed, this is as much a book about education as about Israeli military history.“ (Leser) (109 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 138 Seiten – noch gratis?
