обложка книги Das Geheimnis der Schnallenschuhe Das Geheimnis der Schnallenschuhe

Auch ein Meisterdetektiv geht nicht gern zum Zahnarzt. Und die Rätsel in der Praxis von Hercule Poirots Zahnarzt häufen sich: Ein Patient stirbt, ein anderer verschwindet, auf einen dritten wird ein Attentat verübt. Wie gut nur, dass Poirot vor der Tür des Zahnarztes die Dame mit den merkwürdigen Schnallenschuhen aufgefallen ist. So bereitet ihm die Lösung des geheimnisvollen Geschehens schließlich doch keine Zahnschmerzen.

Der 89-jährige Sherlock Holmes, von dem die Dorfbewohner zu wissen glauben, dass er einst ein berühmter Detektiv war, wohnt zurückgezogen in der englischen Provinz, um sich der Bienenzucht zu widmen. Doch sein beschauliches Leben wird gestört, als Linus Steinman im Dorf auftaucht, neun Jahre alt und stumm, der mit seinem einzigen Begleiter, einem Graupapagei, Hitlerdeutschland entkommen konnte. Doch welche Bedeutung haben die Zahlen, die der Papagei aufsagt? Ist es eine geheime SS-Chiffre? Oder der Code zu einem Schweizer Bankkonto? Als ein Mord geschieht, sieht sich der alte Meisterdetektiv vor ein schier unlösbares letztes Rätsel gestellt. Nach und nach entfaltet sich die wahre Geschichte des kleinen Jungen und seines Papageis in dieser Hommage an die großen klassischen Kriminalromanautoren. Eine meisterliche Erzählung vom Pulitzer-Preisträger Michael Chabon, die alle Liebhaber des klassischen Krimis begeistern wird.

"Zufall?" Ellery seufzte. "Würden Sie es auch als Zufall bezeichnen, wenn ich Ihnen erzählte, daß vor einem halben Jahr in West Virginia ein Mord verübt worden ist, zu dessen Besonderheiten die Kreuzigung des zuvor enthaupteten Opfers an einem T­förmigen Wegweiser zählte, der widerum an eine T-förmigen Kreuzung stand. Nicht zu vergessen das T, das der Mörder mit dem Blut des Toten an die Tür seines kaum hundert Meter entfernten Hauses geschmiert hat?"


Ellery Queen ist das gemeinsame Pseudonym von Frederic Danney (1905 - 1982) und Manfred Bennington Lee (1905 - 1971), die zu den einflussreichsten und produktivsten Kriminalromanautoren gehören.

Death In Ecstasy

The woman stretched both her hands out and the priest gave her the cup.

“The wine of ecstasy gives joy to your body and soul.”

She raised the cup to her lips. Her head tipped back until the last drop must have been drained. Suddenly she gasped violently. Her face twisted into an appalling grimace. She pitched forward like an enormous doll, jerked twice, and then was still…

She may have been in a state of ecstasy, but she was undoubtedly dead.

Death At The Bar

Among the guests at the Plume of Feathers on the memorable evening of the murder were a West End matinée idol, a successful portrait painter, an Oxford-educated farmer’s daughter, a radical organizer and assorted rustics and villagers. Each of them had an opportunity to place the deadly poison on the dart that seemingly had been the instrument of murder. But no one admitted seeing any suspicious movement on the part of anyone else. And what exactly had been the method of the killer? This was the problem Inspector Alleyn had to solve — and he does so with all of his accustomed verve and brilliance.

So she threatened to close the spring. And that brought her what she’d been looking for…

обложка книги Diskrete Zeugen Diskrete Zeugen

Morgens um drei Uhr wird Captain Cathcart tot aufgefunden. Für den ebenso eleganten wie scharfsinnigen Amateurdetektiv Lord Peter Wimsey ein besonders heikler Fall. Denn des Mordes verdächtigt wird der Herzog von Denver - sein eigener Bruder. Und die überaus diskreten Zeugen tragen mehr zur Vernebelung als zur Aufklärung der merkwürdigen Affäre bei. In neuer Übersetzung liegt hiermit endlich ein großer Kriminalroman der Weltliteratur ungekürzt vor - der Roman wurde auch als Fernsehserie ein Welterfolg.

Zu diesem Buch

Dorothy Leigh Sayers, geboren am 13. Juni 1893 als Tochter eines Pfarrers und Schuldirektors aus altem englischem Landadel, war eine der ersten Frauen, die an der Universität ihres Geburtsortes Oxford Examen machte. Sie wurde Lehrerin in Hull, wechselte dann aber für zehn Jahre zu einer Werbeagentur über. 1926 heiratete sie den Kapitän Oswald Atherton Fleming. Als Schriftstellerin begann sie mit religiösen Gedichten und Geschichten. Auch ihre späteren Kriminalromane schrieb sie in der christlichen Grundanschauung von Schuld und Sühne. Schon in ihrem 1926 erschienenen Erstling »Der Tote in der Badewanne« führte sie die Figur ihres eleganten, finanziell unabhängigen und vor allem äußerst scharfsinnigen Amateurdetektivs Lord Peter Wimsey ein, der aus moralischen Motiven Verbrechen aufklärt. Ihre über zwanzig Detektivromane, die sich durch psychologische Grundierungen, eine Fülle bestechender Charakterstudien und eine ethische Haltung auszeichnen, sind inzwischen in die Literaturgeschichte eingegangen. Dorothy L. Sayers gehört mit Agatha Christie und P. D. James zur Trias der großen englischen Kriminalautorinnen. 1950 erhielt sie in Anerkennung ihrer literarischen Verdienste um den Kriminalroman den Ehrendoktortitel der Universität Durham. Dorothy L. Sayers starb am 17. Dezember 1957 in Witham/Essex. Von Dorothy L. Sayers erschienen als rororo-Taschenbücher außerdem: »Der Glocken Schlag« (Nr. 4547), »Fünf falsche Fährten« (Nr. 4614), »Keines natürlichen Todes« (Nr. 4703), »Mord braucht Reklame« (Nr. 4895), »Starkes Gift« (Nr. 4962), »Zur fraglichen Stunde« (Nr. 5077), »Ärger im Bellona-Club« (Nr. 5179), »Aufruhr in Oxford« (Nr. 5271), »Die Akte Harrison« (Nr. 5418) und »Ein Toter zuwenig« (Nr. 5496).

Die englische Originalausgabe erschien 1926 unter dem Titel »Clouds of Witness« im Verlag Victor Gollancz Ltd. London. Die deutsche Erstausgabe erschien 1961 unter dem Titel »Lord Peters schwerster Fall« im Scherz Verlag, Bern/München. 1979 erschien der Band in neuer Übersetzung unter dem Titel »Diskrete Zeugen« im Rainer Wunderlich Verlag.

When a necromancer is murdered, a magician takes the case


Freelance scribe Ross Harte is working on an essay about the sad state of the modern mystery novel when a scream comes from the hallway: “There is death in that room!” Harte finds a trio of conjurers trying to get into the apartment of his neighbor, the mysterious Dr. Cesare Sabbat, famed occultist and, for the past few minutes, a corpse.

They break down the door to find Sabbat lying in a pentagram, face twisted from the agonies of strangulation, but with no bruises on his neck. All the doors were locked, and the windows drop straight down to the river below. Only an escape artist could get out of that room, and Sabbat knew quite a few. To make sense of this misdirected muddle, the police bring in the Great Merlini, an illusionist whose specialty is making mysteries disappear.

Es ist Ende April. Durch das wechselhafte Frühlingswetter wandert ein Mann die Küste Cornwalls entlang. Seit Wochen hat er nicht mehr in einem Bett geschlafen, sich gewaschen, sich rasiert. Als er über der Klippe bei Polcare Cove innehält, bleibt sein Blick an etwas Rotem hängen. In der Tiefe liegt ein zerschmetterter Körper.

Was zunächst wie ein Unfall aussieht entpuppt sich als Sabotageakt und Mord, und die örtliche Ermittlerin Bea Hannaford steht schon bald einem ganzen Dutzend Verdächtigen gegenüber. Darunter auch der Wanderer, der von sich behauptet, Thomas Lynley zu heißen doch ausweisen kann er sich nicht. Als Hannaford bei New Scotland Yard Informationen einfordert, bekommt sie seine Dienstmarke übermittelt, die keineswegs vernichtet wurde, als Lynley nach dem tragischen Tod seiner Frau den Dienst quittiert hatte.

Hannaford bezieht den Detective Superintendent, der er nicht mehr zu sein behauptet, in ihre Ermittlungen ein. Und tatsächlich hat Lynley bereits einen ersten Verdacht. Nur einePerson, weiß er, kann ihm auf unbürokratischem Weg mehr Informationen beschaffen.Und er ruft Barbara Havers an…

The thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times—bestselling series.

In Southeast Minnesota, down on the Mississippi, a school board meeting is coming to an end. The board chairman announces that the rest of the meeting will be closed, due to personnel issues. “Issues” is correct. The proposal up for a vote before them is whether to authorize the killing of a local reporter. The vote is four to one in favor.

Meanwhile, not far away, Virgil Flowers is helping out a friend by looking into a dognapping, which seems to be turning into something much bigger and uglier — a team of dognappers supplying medical labs — when he gets a call from Lucas Davenport. A murdered body has been found — and the victim is a local reporter…

обложка книги Deadline In Athens Deadline In Athens

Petros Markaris's crime fiction has won critical acclaim around the world. His suspense novels are propelled by intricate plots and peopled by villains and all-too-human heroes tangled up in the peculiar ways of contemporary Greece, and at their heart is junta-trained homicide squad chief Costas Haritos. Deadline in Athens finds Inspector Haritos called to the scene of a murder: the renowned TV journalist Janna has been killed in the broadcasting studio just as she was about to go on the air with some sensational news. Haritos's investigation sucks him deep into the nasty world of the Greek media. When Janna's successor also is murdered, Haritos steps up his investigation. He nearly gets suspended from his job because his theories make various important people uncomfortable. In the end, the killer he unmasks comes as a shocking surprise. The first of three novels featuring Inspector Haritos, Deadline in Athens exposes the corruption that has pervaded both private and public life in Greece since the fall of the military dictatorship, the advent of a democratic government, and the explosion of barely controlled private entrepreneurship.

Mes funérailles étaient prévues pour dix heures, mais dès neuf heures, la maison était déjà pleine de gens. Tout le monde pleurait, ce qui me touchait beaucoup. Sur les faire-part on avait précisé « ni fleurs ni couronnes », histoire de ne pas mettre les copains dans les frais, mais, nonobstant cette recommandation, la plupart des assistants s'annonçaient avec des gerbes, des couronnes, des coussins d'œillets, des croix en roses et autres joyeux présents. Oui, il faut vraiment mourir pour mesurer le degré de sa popularité. J'en étais tout ému. Mais quand j'ai vu radiner le Gros, beau comme une pissotière repeinte, dans un complet noir, avec une chemise vraiment (et très provisoirement) blanche, soutenu par Alfred le coiffeur, mon cœur m'est remonté dans le gosier.

Actors do love their dramas, and the members of the Causton Amateur Dramatic Society are no exception. Passionate love scenes, jealous rages? they?re better than a paycheck (not that anyone one in this production of Amadeus is getting one). But even the most theatrically minded must admit that murdering the leading man in full view of the audience is a bit over the top. Luckily, Inspector Tom Barnaby ? first seen in The Killings at Badger's Drift - is in that audience, and he's just the man to find the killer. With so many dramas playing out, there's no shortage of suspects, including secret lovers and jealous understudies galore. Ms. Graham tweaks her collection of community-theater artistes and small-town drama queens with merciless delight until the curtain falls on the final page.

The Lodge of the Golden Windhorse has provided the citizens of Compton Dando with splendid fodder for gossip, prompting speculation of arcane rituals and bizarre sexual practices. But with the murder of the commune's leaders, the rumor-mill goes into overdrive. It's the most exciting thing to happen in Compton Dando since three boys burned down the bus shelter. In trying to solve those murders, Chief Inspector Barnaby is less excited than exasperated. The residents of the Windhorse commune may have been seeking the simple life, but they're all concealing complicated pasts - or past lives.

Depuis sa rupture avec Camille, Adamsberg est devenu l'ombre de lui-même. Il en est même à courir après une revenante ! De tombes ouvertes en reliques disparues, d'évasion de prison en sacrifices d'animaux, il ne manquait plus que deux cadavres retrouvés égorgés dans Paris. La nonne, morte en 1771, qui hante sa nouvelle maison serait-elle responsable de ces drames ? Adamsberg a du mal à y croire. Et pourtant.

Humour, audace, génie des atmosphères et des personnages secondaires, écriture à la fois épurée et évocatrice… Dans les bois éternels, entre polar et tragédie grecque, est un petit bijou.

A Japanese cargo ship cruises the eastern Atlantic near the Azores- when it bursts into flames. A gang of pirates speeds to take advantage of the disaster- when their boat explodes. What is happening in that part of the world? As Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA(r) Special Assignments Team rush to investigate, they find themselves drawn into the extraordinary ambitions of an African dictator, the creation of a weapon of almost mythical power, and an unimaginably audacious plan to extort the world's major nations. Their penalty for refusal? The destruction of their greatest cities.

Mack Bolan sensed danger when he lost contact with Stony Man Farm. The Phoenix fortress in Virginias Blue Ridge Mountains should be impenetrable. But was it? Bolan returned home to find the Stony strongholds security violated and ace armorer, Andrzej Konzaki, mortally wounded. A web of treachery now enshrouded the Farm, imperiling its existence. In one blood-drenched night, Bolan embarked on an odyssey of revenge. From D.C.s corridors of power to the cathouse depths of sewer city, he pursued an elusive specter who bartered in mens souls. And each time the trail led to a dead end. Who was this faceless enemy?

Using the American tradition of freedom of religion as a smoke screen, a cultist group had gone mad in the streets of San Francisco. People were being slaughtered in the name of a bizarre new sacrilege, The Universal Devotees. Killings were random, senseless...

Mack Bolan quickly identified the devil incarnate — Nguyen Van Minh, a stateless Asian refugee who had mastered mind-control on a massive scale.

Bolan smelled KGB. Evidence grew that the killer creed was a Soviet weapon for wholesale butchery. When a senators lovely young daughter was sucked into its ranks, The Executioner launched the one deadly brand of combat — firestorms of glory that scorch yet revive the earth — that could crush Minhs blasphemy at its accursed heart.

Fired with a holy vengeance, Bolan recruits nine buddies — all heroes of the Vietnam war, all specialists in the more sophisticated aspects of meting out death.

The U.S. government has allowed the Grays, a race of extra-terrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli system, to establish a foothold on Earth at a place called Dulce Base, a secret underground base near the Archuleta Mesa in New Mexico.

This came about after President Eisenhower signed a treaty with them at Holleman Air Force Base in 1953, but following a surprise attack on the humans of the base in 1975, the treaty was deemed worthless and the U.S. government was in a bind.

Fast forward to 1979. A group of Special Forces — all “dead” Vietnam vets — are assembled with the sole task of taking the base back or destroying it.

When ungodly horrors are discovered on the base's deepest levels, however, the mission changes from one of search and destroy to one of rescue. Aided by six super soldiers impervious to the mind attacks of the Grays, the men fight for humanity in an epic sci-fi battle you can't afford to miss.

Eigentlich hatten Fidelma und ihr Begleiter, der angelsächsische Mönch Eadulf, gehofft, nur wenige Tage im Tal von Araglin zu bleiben. Doch so leicht, wie sie zunächst annehmen, sind die Schuldigen an der blutigen Ermordung des Stammesfürsten und dessen Schwester doch nicht zu entlarven. Jeder in diesem schönen Tal scheint etwas zu verbergen, jeder scheint ein düsteres Geheimnis zu hüten, und keiner ist wirklich bereit, Fidelma und Eadulf bei ihrer Aufgabe zu unterstützen. Ein Netz geheimer Intrigen verbindet offenbar alle, und Fidelma und ihr Begleiter geraten in Gefahr, sich darin zu verfangen.

Jahrhundert spielenden historischen Romanen löst Schwester Fidelma, eine irische Nonne von königlichem Geblüt und gleichzeitig Anwältin bei Gericht, auf kluge und selbstbewußte Art die schwierigsten Fälle. Wegen des großen internationalen Erfolgs seiner Serie um Schwester Fidelma wurde Peter Tremayne 2002 zum Ehrenmitglied der Irish Literary Society auf Lebenszeit ernannt.

Aus einer kleinen religiösen Gemeinschaft sind sämtliche Mönche verschwunden, im Refektorium steht noch ihr beinahe unberührtes Mahl. Es ist, als hätte sich die Erde geöffnet und die Klosterbrüder verschlungen. Da entdeckt man sieben der Mönche ermordet auf den Klippen am Meer und unweit davon ein angelsächsisches Schiff. Trotzdem liegen die Dinge weniger klar, als sie scheinen. Und es wird entschieden gefährlich für Schwester Fidelma und Bruder Eadulf, ehe sie wissen, welche handfesten irdischen Absichten und Interessen hinter dem mystisch anmutenden Vorfall und einigen weiteren Morden in der Gegend stecken.

Alexander’s new historical mystery takes place in the late-nineteenth century and takes up at the point Tears of Pearl (2009) left off. In Tears, Lady Emily’s honeymoon with second husband Colin ended with her being shot and losing her unborn baby. Now she and Colin are staying in Normandy with his autocratic mother, Mrs. Hargreaves, who takes it amiss when Emily comes upon the body of a murdered young woman while horseback riding. Lady Emily can’t help but investigate the murder, especially when she learns the dead girl came from an aristocratic family in Rouens and was confined to an insane asylum. She also has to deal with her hostile mother-in-law, her worries about her own mental and emotional health, the reappearance of the flirtatious and clever thief Sebastian, and the murdered girl’s decidedly strange family. Readers who enjoy historical mysteries with strong female characters will find much to enjoy here and will want to seek out Lady Emily’s earlier adventures.

London im Jahre 1817: Mit harter Hand bemüht sich die Obrigkeit, Unruhen und Kriminalität einzudämmen. Hinrichtungen sind an der Tagesordnung, Tausende sterben am Galgen. Captain Rider Sandman, ein unverschuldet in finanzielle Not geratener Gentleman, erhält vom Innenministerium den Auftrag, das Gnadengesuch von Charles Corday zu prüfen, der wegen Mordes an einer Gräfin zum Tod durch den Strang verurteilt wurde. Niemand zweifelt an der Schuld des Malers, auch Sandman hält seinen Auftrag für eine reine Formsache – bis ihm erhebliche Zweifel kommen. Es beginnt ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit, denn die Hinrichtung soll schon in sieben Tagen erfolgen. Doch die neuerlichen Ermittlungen werden nicht von allen Befragten gerne gesehen, und als der mysteriöse Seraphim Club Sandman eine hohe Bestechungssumme anbietet, die all seine Probleme auf einen Schlag lösen könnte, ist er sich sicher, auf der richtigen Spur zu sein …

обложка книги Dom Westalek Dom Westalek

Dziewięć historii, które składają się na tę książkę, to misternie skonstruowane, pełne napięcia "kryminały". Wszystkie Umiejscowione są w okresie ośmiu lat dzielących Rzymską krew i Ramiona Nemezis (dwie pierwsze powieści cyklu "Roma sub rosa"). W tle opisywanych intryg przewija się dzieciństwo Ekona, adoptowanego syna Gordianusa, związek bohatera z niewolnicą Bethesdą (późniejszą jego żoną), a całość, co chyba najważniejsze, przesycona jest historią Rzymu od kresu dyktatury Sulli aż po powstanie Spartakusa. Dom westalek to istotne uzupełnienie całego cyklu. "Roma sub rosa", cykl powieści Stevena Saylora, których akcja toczy się w starożytnym Rzymie u schyłku republiki, a bohaterem jest Gordianus Poszukiwacz, został nadzwyczaj dobrze przyjęty i przez czytelników, i przez krytyków, dając autorowi miejsce wśród znaczących twórców sensacyjnych powieści historycznych.

London im 18. Jahrhundert. Der Exboxer und Privatdetektiv Benjamin Weaver wird durch einen erpresserischen Trick in die Dienste des Händlers Jerome Cobb gezwungen. Da auch das Wohlergehen seiner engsten Freunde in Cobbs Händen liegt, muss Weaver mit dem skrupellosen Geschäftsmann zusammenarbeiten. In Cobbs Auftrag schleust er sich in die mächtige Handelsgesellschaft East India Company ein, um dort das Vertrauen des alternden Vorstandsmitglieds Ellershaw zu erlangen - und Zugang zu geheimen Informationen. Offiziell als neuer Aufseher eingesetzt, muss Weaver bald der Durchsetzung von Ellershaws rücksichtslosen Eigeninteressen dienen, der seine Wiederwahl sichern und die Führungsposition der East India Company auf dem Textilmarkt ausbauen will. Doch welche Rolle spielt der mysteriöse Seidenweber Pepper in diesem Machtkampf? Und was hat es mit Celia Glade auf sich, dem ebenso schönen wie klugen Dienstmädchen? Schnell erkennt Weaver, dass sie nicht diejenige ist, die sie vorgibt zu sein ...

обложка книги Death Comes to Pemberley Death Comes to Pemberley

A rare meeting of literary genius: P. D. James, long among the most admired mystery writers of our time, draws the characters of Jane Austen’s beloved novel Pride and Prejudice into a tale of murder and emotional mayhem.

It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy’s magnificent estate. Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable. Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house. They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles. Elizabeth’s sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy’s sister Georgiana. And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball.

Then, on the eve of the ball, the patrician idyll is shattered. A coach careens up the drive carrying Lydia, Elizabeth’s disgraced sister, who with her husband, the very dubious Wickham, has been banned from Pemberley. She stumbles out of the carriage, hysterical, shrieking that Wickham has been murdered. With shocking suddenness, Pemberley is plunged into a frightening mystery.

Inspired by a lifelong passion for Austen, P. D. James masterfully re-creates the world of Pride and Prejudice, electrifying it with the excitement and suspense of a brilliantly crafted crime story, as only she can write it.

Als Schwester Fidelma, eine irische Nonne königlichen Geblüts, in die Abtei Der Lachs aus den Drei Quellen kommt, wo sie den mysteriösen Mord an einer jungen Frau aufklären soll, trifft sie auf sehr befremdliche Zustände. Unter der wohlgeordneten Oberfläche scheinen sich allerlei Ränke, Eifersüchteleien, Ja Haß zu verbergen. Noch viel undurchsichtiger ist das Verhältnis der Äbtissin zum Herrn der Festung in unmittelbarer Nähe. Was nimmt es da Wunder, daß die Äbtissin, gegenwärtig die Hauptverdächtige in dem Mordfall, eine regelrechte Hetzjagd auf eine behinderte Schwester zuläßt, die eine zweite Leiche in der Abtei findet, und daß Fidelma auf dem Weg zur Festung beinahe von einem Bogenschützen getötet wird. Doch dem logischen Verstand Fidelmas bleibt nichts verborgen, und ihrem furchtlosen Vorgehen entkommt auf die Dauer kein noch so raffinierter Übeltäter.


Peter Tremayne ist das Pseudonym eines anerkannten Historikers, der sich auf die versunkene Kultur der Kelten spezialisiert hat. In seinen im 7. Jahrhundert spielenden historischen Romanen löst Schwester Fidelma, eine irische Nonne von königlichem Geblüt und gleichzeitig Anwältin bei Gericht, auf kluge und selbstbewußte Art die schwierigsten Fälle. Wegen des großen internationalen Erfolg seiner Serie um Schwester Fidelma wurde Peter Tremayne 2002 zum Ehrenmitglied der Irish Literary Society auf Lebenszeit ernannt.

The Twentieth Chronicle of Matthew Bartholomew


In the summer of 1358 the physician Matthew Bartholomew returns to Cambridge to learn that his beloved sister is in mourning after the unexpected death of her husband, Oswald Stanmore. Aware that his son has no interest in the cloth trade that made his fortune and reputation, Oswald has left the business to his widow, but a spate of burglaries in the town distracts Matthew from supporting Edith in her grief and attempting to keep the peace between her and her wayward son.

As well as the theft of irreplaceable items from Michaelhouse, which threatens its very survival, a new foundation, Winwick Hall, is causing consternation amongst Matthew's colleagues. The founder is an impatient man determined that his name will grace the University's most prestigious college. He has used his wealth to rush the construction of the hall, and his appointed Fellows have infiltrated the charitable Guild founded by Stanmore, in order to gain the support of Cambridge's most influential citizens on Winwick's behalf. A perfect storm between the older establishments and the brash newcomers is brewing when the murder of a leading member of the Guild is soon followed by the death of one of Winwick's senior Fellows. Assisting Brother Michael in investigating these fatalities leads Matthew into a web of suspicion, where conspiracy theories are rife but facts are scarce and where the pressure from the problems of his college and his family sets him on a path that could endanger his own future...

Perthshire 1929 and the menfolk of the Gilver family have come down, between them, with influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia and pleurisy. Dandy the devoted wife and mother decides it is time to dec & Dandy the intrepid detective, however, decides to decamp to the scene of a murder she would dearly love to solve.

The family repairs to the Borders town of Moffat, there to drink the sulphurous waters straight from the well and to submit to the galvanic wraps and cold salt rubs of the splendid Laidlaw Hydropathic Hotel.

But all is not well at the Hydro. The Laidlaw family is at war, the guests are an uneasy mix of old faithfuls and giddy upstarts, and the secret of the lady who arrived but never left cannot be kept for long. And what of those drifting shapes in the Turkish bath? Just steam shifting in the air? Probably. But the Hydro was built in the lee of a Gallow Hill, and in this town the dead can be as much trouble as the living…

Twee kogels in zijn rug, gevolgd door twee in zijn hoofd. En dan kon hij eindelijk met een gerust hart vertrekken.

The message over the CIA hot-line sent AXE into an uproar. CIA’s top man in Tibet had been killed. His dying words had identified his assassin— “Nick Carter!”

AXE made their own Nick Carter’s briefing short:

1. A fake Killmaster at large in the East meant something explosive in the works, while the obvious lure to trap the super-agent was intriguing but probably of secondary importance.

2. Highest authority wanted the matter investigated and settled, fast!

Within hours, N3 had jumped into Tibet to pick up the trail of his mysterious double. In India the path ran through streets thronged with those seeking the fortune offered in reward for Nick Carter’s arrest. It led to the remote Pakistani border region where Nick found the fuse which, once ignited in India, would set off a holocaust that would destroy all the nations of the East.

Lorsque la grande aiguille de ma montre a fait sa révolution sur le cadran, la porte de l'usine se rouvre et mon zigoto réapparaît. Il est plus furtif qu'un souvenir polisson et il se met à foncer dans la partie obscure du quai, la tronche rentrée dans les épaules… Il marche vite, sans courir cependant… Il semble avoir peur… Oui, pas de doute, il est terrorisé… Je lui laisse du champ et je démarre en douceur.

Soudain, il se cabre. Dans l'ombre, devant lui, se tient une seconde auto, tous feux éteints… Il marque un temps et s'écarte pour passer.

Dedans, j'aperçois vaguement deux silhouettes…

Mes funérailles étaient prévues pour dix heures, mais dès neuf heures, la maison était déjà pleine de gens. Tout le monde pleurait, ce qui me touchait beaucoup. Sur les faire-part on avait précisé « ni fleurs ni couronnes », histoire de ne pas mettre les copains dans les frais, mais, nonobstant cette recommandation, la plupart des assistants s'annonçaient avec des gerbes, des couronnes, des coussins d'œillets, des croix en roses et autres joyeux présents. Oui, il faut vraiment mourir pour mesurer le degré de sa popularité. J'en étais tout ému. Mais quand j'ai vu radiner le Gros, beau comme une pissotière repeinte, dans un complet noir, avec une chemise vraiment (et très provisoirement) blanche, soutenu par Alfred le coiffeur, mon cœur m'est remonté dans le gosier.

обложка книги Defectors Defectors

From the bestselling author of Istanbul Passage and Leaving Berlin comes a riveting novel about two brothers bound by blood, divided by loyalty.

“With his remarkable emotional precision and mastery of tone, Kanon transcends the form…. Not since le Carré’s A Perfect Spy has there been a family of spooks to rival this one…. Kanon reaffirms his status as one of the very best writers in the genre.”

Kirkus (starred review)

In 1949, Frank Weeks, fair-haired boy of the newly formed CIA, was exposed as a Communist spy and fled the country to vanish behind the Iron Curtain. Now, twelve years later, he has written his memoirs, a KGB- approved project almost certain to be an international bestseller, and has asked his brother Simon, a publisher, to come to Moscow to edit the manuscript. It’s a reunion Simon both dreads and longs for. The book is sure to be filled with mischief and misinformation; Frank’s motives suspect, the CIA hostile. But the chance to see Frank, his adored older brother, proves irresistible.

And at first Frank is still Frank—the same charm, the same jokes, the same bond of affection that transcends ideology. Then Simon begins to glimpse another Frank, still capable of treachery, still actively working for “the service.” He finds himself dragged into the middle of Frank’s new scheme, caught between the KGB and the CIA in a fatal cat and mouse game that only one of the brothers is likely to survive.

Defectors is the gripping story of one family torn apart by the divided loyalties of the Cold War, but it’s also a revealing look at the wider community of defectors, American and British, living a twilit Moscow existence, granted privileges but never trusted, spies who have escaped one prison only to find themselves trapped in another that is even more sinister. Filled with authentic period detail and moral ambiguity, Defectors takes us to the heart of a world of secrets, where no one can be trusted and murder is just collateral damage.

In der Universität von Reykjavik wird die Leiche eines jungen Deutschen gefunden. Der Geschichtsstudent war fasziniert von alten Hexenkulten, und sein Mörder hat ihm ein merkwürdiges Zeichen in die Haut geritzt.

Aber die isländische Polizei glaubt an ein Drogendelikt und verhaftet einen Dealer. Die Eltern des Opfers misstrauen den Ermittlungen: Sie beauftragen die junge Anwältin Dóra Guðmundsdóttir, den Fall noch einmal aufzurollen.

Sommer 2006, im Westen von Island. Auf der Halbinsel Snæfellsnes wird die Architektin eines Wellness-Hotels tot am Strand aufgefunden. Sie wurde vergewaltigt und brutal erschlagen, in ihren Fußsohlen stecken Nadeln. Rechtsanwältin Dóra Guðmundsdóttir findet heraus, dass die Ermordete sich sehr für die Geschichte der verlassenen Gegend interessiert hat. Vor vielen Jahrzehnten standen auf dem Hotelgrundstück die Höfe zweier Brüder. Offenbar ist sie auf ein unaussprechliches Familiengeheimnis gestoßen …


»Hier in Island glauben die Leute viel mehr an das Übernatürliche als in anderen westlichen Ländern. Ich arbeite zum Beispiel mit einem Ingenieur zusammen, der kürzlich einen Geisterbeschwörer zu sich nach Hause bestellt hat, um einen dänischen Geist aus einer alten Kommode zu vertreiben. Ich kenne viele Leute, die im Traum etwas vorhergesehen haben, die regelmäßig zu Wahrsagerinnen gehen, etwas Übersinnliches erlebt haben oder an Geister, Elfen und so weiter glauben. Außerdem haben wir eine lange Erzähltradition — in unseren Volksmärchen gibt es viele wirklich gute Geistergeschichten. Aber im modernen Kriminalroman muss die Auflösung natürlich immer eine ganz irdische sein …«

Isaac Asimov, einer der berühmtesten Sience Fiction- Schriftsteller der Welt, hat auch eine Anzahl von hervorragenden, intelligenten Kriminalgeschichten geschrieben. Acht davon enthält dieser vom Autor zusammengestellte Band.


Die „Schwarzen Witwer" sind keine Bösewichte, sondern ehrbare Herren, die sich einmal im Monat zu einem gemütlichen Beisammensein zusammenfinden. Dieses Treffen zeichnet sich durch zwei Besonderheiten aus. Erstens darf - und das ist eigentlich der Sinn dieser Veranstaltung - keine Frau an diesem Essen teilnehmen. Zweitens wird bei dieser Zusammenkunft jedesmal eine geheimnisvolle Angelegenheit aufgeklärt, beispielsweise die Geschichfe des Mannes, der immer die Wahrheit sagte, oder warum ein Faulpelz seine Frau ermordete. Obwohl die Schwarzen Witwer mit der größten Begeisterung versuchen, jeden Fall zu losen, sind sie jedoch immer wieder auf die Hilfe ihres Kellners Henry angewiesen, der wie ein zweiter Sherfock Holmes oder Hercule Poirot jedes noch so tiefsinnige Geheimnis entschleiert.

The plan is simple. A favor really. All Nick Travers, a former professional football player turned professor, has to do is drive up Highway 61 from New Orleans to Memphis and track down the lost brother of one of his best friends. But as Travers knows, these simple jobs seldom turn out smoothly.

His friend’s brother is Clyde James, who, in 1968, was one of the finest soul singers Memphis had to offer. But when James’s wife and close friend were murdered, his life was shattered. He turned to the streets, where, decades ago, he disappeared.

Travers’s search for the singer soon leads him to the casinos in Tunica, Mississippi, and converges with the agenda of the Dixie Mafia, a zealot gubernatorial candidate linked to a neo-Confederacy movement, and an obsessed killer who thinks he has a true spiritual link to the late Elvis Presley.

What would you do if you only had twenty four hours to save the life of a friend?

Searching for lost souls and solving problems was never Nick Travers’s intention when he started doing favors for his buddies. A former football player who sometimes teaches blues history at Tulane, Nick would rather just watch the Louisiana rain and listen to old Muddy Waters records.

But when music mogul Teddy Paris, a former team-mate from the New Orleans Saints, visits Nick and asks him to help find $700,000 taken from a rap prodigy, Nick can’t turn down his friend. The missing money will pay a bounty on Paris’s head that was set by a cross-town rival, a street-hard thug named Cash.

Nick soon finds himself lost in the world of Gucci-lined Bentleys and endless bottles of Cristal champagne. He sets out with fifteen-year-old rap star, ALIAS, seeking a team of grifters that conned the kid. But uncertainty, the constant threat of violence, and a phantom grave robber haunt their search. When a killer hits too close, Nick takes ALIAS with him to the Mississippi Delta, where he comes under the protection and guidance of Nick’s mentor, blues legend JoJo Jackson, and his wife, Loretta.

Soon Nick, JoJo, and another old-school Delta tough guy do battle in the Dirty South rap world where money, sex, and murder threaten to take down Paris’s empire and destroy ALIAS. As cultures clash, the story winds its way through the infamous Calliope housing projects, the newly built mansions of New Orleans’s lake-front, and ultimately to the brackish muck of the Bayou Savage.

Dirty South is a thrilling tale of friendship, betrayal, revenge, and trust from a fresh and hip new voice. Take a ride to the other side of New Orleans, away from the neon gloss of Bourbon Street, to see what the dirty south is all about.

A sunny, quiet, perfectly ordinary school day in autumn turns suddenly dark when sixteen-year-old Rebecca Patton runs down and kills a pedestrian during a driving lesson. It all happens so quickly, so inexplicably, like an accident. The victim — a woman carrying a red handbag — had been stepping off the curb at the corner of Grove and Third. Then she was lying in the street, in critical condition.

When police detective Katie Logan arrives at the station house, she finds a distraught but cooperative Rebecca. Her driving instructor, Andrew Newell, is totally disoriented, however. He appears to be drunk. Or on drugs. Certainly, his apparent incompetence warrants his arrest in what has now become a case of negligent homicide.

The situation in this adroitly told tale by a master at the top of his form grows far more sinister, though, when Logan learns that the victim’s handbag has been recovered. It identifies the dead woman as Andrew Newell’s wife.

обложка книги Dead I Well May Be Dead I Well May Be

This Irish bad-boy thriller – set in the hardest streets of New York City – brims with violence, greed, and sexual betrayal.

"I didn't want to go to America, I didn't want to work for Darkey White. I had my reasons. But I went."

So admits Michael Forsythe, an illegal immigrant escaping the Troubles in Belfast. But young Michael is strong and fearless and clever – just the fellow to be tapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs struggling against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx. The time is pre-Giuliani New York, when crack rules the city, squatters live furtively in ruined buildings, and hundreds are murdered each month. Michael and his lads tumble through the streets, shaking down victims, drinking hard, and fighting for turf, block by bloody block.

Dodgy and observant, not to mention handy with a pistol, Michael is soon anointed by Darkey as his rising star. Meanwhile Michael has very inadvisably seduced Darkey's girl, Bridget – saucy, fickle, and irresistible. Michael worries that he's being followed, that his affair with Bridget will be revealed. He's right to be anxious; when Darkey discovers the affair, he plans a very hard fall for young Michael, a gambit devilish in its guile, murderous in its intent.

But Darkey fails to account for Michael's toughness and ingenuity or the possibility that he might wreak terrible vengeance upon those who would betray him.

A natural storyteller with a gift for dialogue, McKinty introduces to readers a stunning new noir voice, dark and stylish, mythic and violent – complete with an Irish lilt.

On June 9, 1865, while traveling by train to London with his secret mistress, 53-year-old Charles Dickens — at the height of his powers and popularity, the most famous and successful novelist in the world and perhaps in the history of the world — hurtled into a disaster that changed his life forever.

Did Dickens begin living a dark double life after the accident? Were his nightly forays into the worst slums of London and his deepening obsession with corpses, crypts, murder, opium dens, the use of lime pits to dissolve bodies, and a hidden subterranean London mere research… or something more terrifying?

Just as he did in The Terror, Dan Simmons draws impeccably from history to create a gloriously engaging and terrifying narrative. Based on the historical details of Charles Dickens's life and narrated by Wilkie Collins (Dickens's friend, frequent collaborator, and Salieri-style secret rival), DROOD explores the still-unsolved mysteries of the famous author's last years and may provide the key to Dickens's final, unfinished work: The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Chilling, haunting, and utterly original, DROOD is Dan Simmons at his powerful best.

But her latest undercover assignment has the aero-phobic ex-nurse flying high-as she takes off to ground a land-and-air ambulance company that's been doing some rather flighty billing. Even having ER Dano, the company's best (and hottest!) paramedic, in the copter seat next to her isn't enough to soothe her queasy tummy.

But her insides really start doing loop-de-loops when one of the company's owners is brutally murdered-and Pauline starts receiving creepy phone calls… from the killer! Suddenly the air looks a lot safer than the ground. And if Pauline doesn't crack this case soon, even mouth-to-mouth from her favorite paramedic won't be enough to revive her.

Your fourteen-year-old daughter has been taken, and her kidnappers want half a million pounds in cash. They give you 48 hours to raise the money. If you call the police, she will die. Trying desperately to remain calm, you realize that your husband – the man you married two years ago – is also missing. But he can't be involved in your daughter's abduction. Or can he? As the nightmare unravels, you can be certain of only two things: that you will do anything to get your daughter back alive – and that time is running out.

обложка книги Do They Know I'm Running Do They Know I'm Running

From acclaimed author David Corbett, a stunning and suspenseful novel of a life without loyalties and the borders inside ourselves.

Roque Montalvo is wise beyond his eighteen years. Orphaned at birth, a gifted musician, he's stuck in a California backwater, helping his Salvadoran aunt care for his damaged brother, an ex-marine badly wounded in Iraq. When immigration agents arrest his uncle, the family has nowhere else to turn. Roque, badgered by his street-hardened cousin, agrees to bring the old man back, relying on the criminal gangs that control the dangerous smuggling routes from El Salvador, through Guatemala and Mexico, to the U.S. border.

But his cousin has told Roque only so much. In reality, he will have to transport not just his uncle but two others: an Arab whose intentions are disturbingly vague and a young beauty promised to a Mexican crime lord. Roque discovers that his journey involves crossing more than one kind of border, and he will be asked time and again to choose between survival and betrayal – of his country, his family, his heart.

Death of a Blue Movie Star

From Publishers Weekly

When a porno movie theater is blown up in Times Square, 21-year-old film production assistant Rune (no last name given) decides that this is the chance to realize her dream of making her own film. Using the bombing as a hook for a documentary on pornography, she interviews Shelly Lowe, a major porn star. Rune is just getting into the film when another explosion kills Shelly. Evidence points to a religious cult, but Rune teams up with a quirky bomb squad detective, Sam Healy, to discover the real murderer. Since Rune's method of operation is unorthodox (including breaking into offices and buying false IDs), Sam extricates her from some bizarre predicaments and then becomes her lover. Rune's pursuit of the killer takes her behind the scenes of legitimate theater and into the seamy world of pornography. She is an offbeat heroine with a mixture of spunk and naivete. Deaver (Manhattan Is My Beat) writes compellingly about New York 's sordid side, but his portrayal of Shelly as a gifted actress and aspiring playwright is hard to credit. Still, his fast-paced whodunit is saved by surprising twists near the end.

From New York Times bestseller John Lescroart comes an explosive look at the seductive power of revenge and the terrible costs of justice.

The Curtlees are the most powerful family in San Francisco, unscrupulous billionaires who ve lined every important pocket in the Bay Area in pursuit of their own ascent. So when the family's heir, Ro Curtlee, was convicted of rape and murder a decade ago, the fallout for those who helped to bring him to justice was swift and uncompromising. The jury foreman was fired from his job and blacklisted in his industry. The lead prosecutor was pushed off the fast track, her dreams of becoming DA dashed. And head homicide detective Abe Glitsky was reassigned to the police department s payroll office. Eventually, all three were able to rebuild their fragile, damaged lives.

And then Ro Curtlee's lawyers won him a retrial, and he was released from jail.

Within twenty-four hours, a fire destroys the home of the original trial's star witness, her abused remains discovered in the ruins. When a second fire claims a participant in the case, Abe is convinced: Ro is out for revenge. But with no hard evidence and an on-the-take media eager to vilify anyone who challenges Ro, can Abe stop the violence before he finds himself in its crosshairs? How much more can he sacrifice to put Ro back behind bars? And just how far across the line is he prepared to go in pursuit of justice?

обложка книги Different Seasons Different Seasons

Different Seasons(1982) is a collection of four novellas, markedly different in tone and subject, each on the theme of a journey. The first is a rich, satisfying, nonhorrific tale about an innocent man who carefully nurtures hope and devises a wily scheme to escape from prison. The second concerns a boy who discards his innocence by enticing an old man to travel with him into a reawakening of long-buried evil. In the third story, a writer looks back on the trek he took with three friends on the brink of adolescence to find another boy's corpse. The trip becomes a character-rich rite of passage from youth to maturity.

These first three novellas have been made into well-received movies: "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption" into Frank Darabont's 1994 The Shawshank Redemption, "Apt Pupil" into Bryan Singer's 1998 film Apt Pupil, and "The Body" into Rob Reiner's Stand by Me(1986).

The final novella, "Breathing Lessons," is a horror yarn told by a doctor, about a patient whose indomitable spirit keeps her baby alive under extraordinary circumstances. It's the tightest, most polished tale in the collection.--Fiona Webster

Nada es nunca lo que parece. Y menos si David Gurney está involucrado.

Han pasado seis meses. David Gurney apenas ha conseguido reincorporarse a una cierta normalidad después de haberse encontrado al borde de la muerte tras resolver el caso más peligroso al que se había enfrentado. Madeleine, su esposa, está preocupada: ha sido diagnosticado con síndrome de estrés postraumático; nada parece alegrarle.

Hasta que recibe una llamada. Connie Clark, la periodista que creó la leyenda de superpoli, lo puso en la portada de una revista y lo catapultó a la fama, quiere pedirle ayuda. Su hija Kim está realizando un documental sobre las familias de las víctimas de un asesino en serie al que nunca atraparon, el Buen Pastor, y Connie quiere que Gurney supervise sus investigaciones y la guíe. En parte por aburrimiento y en parte por hacerle un favor a Connie, Gurney acepta.

Sin embargo, esto no será más que el principio. Incapaz de ponerle coto a su curiosidad y a su necesidad de resolver cada una de las incógnitas que se le presentan, David Gurney se verá arrastrado a una investigación para descubrir la verdadera identidad del asesino. Un asesino que es tan imprevisible como peligroso.

Si en Sé lo que estás pensando te asombró y en No abras los ojos te aterró, con Deja en paz al diablo, John Verdon consigue lo inesperado: sorprender al lector a cada página hasta dejarlo sin aliento.

But who was he? Who sent the photograph? And why? While the technical experts attempt to trace the sender, Thorne searches the daily police bulletins for a reported death that matches the photograph. Then another picture arrives. Another dead man…It is the identities of the murdered men which give Thorne his first clue, a link to a dangerous killer he'd put away years before and who is still in prison. With a chilling talent for manipulation, this man has led another inmate to plot revenge on everyone he blames for his current incarceration, and for the murder of his family while he was inside. Newly released, this convict has no fear of the police, no feelings for those he is compelled to murder. Now Tom Thorne must face one of the toughest challenges of his career, knowing that there is no killer more dangerous than one who has nothing left to lose.

Ni tan siquiera el ensordecedor ruido de las hélices del helicóptero parece capaz de romper la pesada calma que se cierne sobre un tranquilo pueblo costero situado al sur de Inglaterra. Unos pocos curiosos, desde los acantilados o desde los escasos veleros fondeados en 1a bahía, aplauden lo que creen es el final feliz del rescate de una joven atrapada en una playa abrupta y de difícil acceso. En realidad, la mujer ha sido asesinada y, según todos los indicios, torturada y violada. Su desnudo cuerpo no arroja pista alguna sobre su identidad. El agente Nick Ingram, encargado de la investigación, recela enseguida de un joven actor que paseaba por el lugar de los hechos. El posterior descubrimiento de sus relaciones con la víctima, así como sus actividades en el campo de la pornografía para costearse su lujoso tren de vida, hará que todo le señale como el principal sospechoso.

Pero al mismo tiempo, en el puerto de un cercano pueblo, aparece una niña de tres años con aspecto de haber sido abandonada y con una preocupante actitud de desconfianza y ensimismamiento. La llegada del padre conducirá también hasta la mujer de la playa, que es, en realidad, la madre de la niña. A la policía tampoco le pasa por alto que la pequeña se siente aterrorizada cada vez que su padre se le acerca; un dato revelador que se suma a otras oscuras circunstancias, como el hecho de que el marido no posea una coartada sostenible. Será necesario algo más que arduas investigaciones para conseguir desvelar los aspectos más oscuros y secretos de las vidas de los allegados a la víctima y para localizar las claves que permitan desvelar la identidad del asesino.

обложка книги Devil’s garden Devil’s garden

From the critically acclaimed, award-nominated author comes a new noir crime classic about one of the most notorious trials in American history.

Critics called Ace Atkins's Wicked City 'gripping, superb' (Library Journal), 'stunning' (The Tampa Tribune), 'terrific' (Associated Press), 'riveting' (Kirkus Reviews), 'wicked good' (Fort Worth Star-Telegram), and 'Atkins' best novel' (The Washington Post). But Devil's Garden is something else again.

San Francisco, September 1921: Silent-screen comedy star Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle is throwing a wild party in his suite at the St. Francis Hotel: girls, jazz, bootleg hooch… and a dead actress named Virginia Rappe. The D.A. says it was Arbuckle who killed her – crushing her under his weight – and brings him up on manslaughter charges. William Randolph Hearst's newspapers stir up the public and demand a guilty verdict. But what really happened? Why do so many people at the party seem to have stories that conflict? Why is the prosecution hiding witnesses? Why are there body parts missing from the autopsied corpse? Why is Hearst so determined to see Fatty Arbuckle convicted?

In desperation, Arbuckle's defense team hires a Pinkerton agent to do an investigation of his own and, they hope, discover the truth. The agent's name is Dashiell Hammett, and he's the book's narrator. What he discovers will change American legal history – and his own life – forever.

'The historical accuracy isn't what elevates Atkins' prose to greatness,' said The Tampa Tribune. 'It's his ability to let these characters breathe in a way that few authors could ever imagine. He doesn't so much write them as unleash them upon the page.' You will not soon forget the extraordinary characters and events in Devil's Garden.

An anthology of stories

“Martin has assembled an impressive array of writers… Progressing through the decades, Wild Cards keeps its momentum to the end… I’m looking forward to the next episodes in this saga of mutant Americana.” – Locus

“Well written and suspenseful and a good read… The authors had a lot of fun rewriting recent American history.” – Aboriginal Science Fiction

“Commendable writing… a zany premise… narrated with rueful humor and intelligence.” – Publishers Weekly

***

The first fifteen volumes of the Wild Cards series concerned themselves primarily with aces (those given superhuman powers by the Wild Cards virus) and jokers (those whom the virus transformed into freaks and monsters). But in this all-new collection of Wild Cards stories, Deuces Down will focus on some characters less often in the spotlight: the deuces. In Wild Card slang, a deuce is an ace whose superpower is tiny, trivial, sometimes silly.

As with the other books in the series, Deuces Down is set in an alternate, shared-world universe. It's here that you'll find the never-before-told tales of the exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; the first moon landing, when the whole world wasn't watching; the Great New York City Blackout of 1977; and Grace Kelly's mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenant's Woman.

Now, in her anticipated hardcover debut, she's back to finish off this stunning series with her hottest shot yet. Two years ago, a major FBI undercover drug deal suddenly went south- and special agent Dylan Shields went down in a hail of bullets. When the dust cleared, his fellow agent (and fiancée) Anne Marie McCall was left alone with too many unanswered questions and nothing to do but hit the job as hard as she could to dull the pain. Only now is she beginning to ease up on her punishing routine as a Bureau profiler and starting to let some light in again. and. Detective Evan Crosby had a lot to do with drawing Annie back into life, and she's not about to let her chance at happiness with him slip away. But before she can embrace a bright new future, she must grapple with the dangerous past whose demons of doubt and suspicion won't let her sleep at night… and whose dead will never rest in peace until someone digs up the truth and deals out the payback. That means going places where no one- including the FBI-wants Annie to be and cutting through a minefield of smoke and mirrors, politics and intimidation, dirty tricks and deadly threats, in order to make a cold case hot enough to get the right people sweating. The harder Annie squeezes, the more blood, lies, and betrayal she wrings out… and the closer she comes to connecting a face to the trigger finger that blew away her dreams-and Dylan Shields. What she doesn't know is that the killer she's closing in on is looking for closure too. The kind that only Annie's death can bring.

The Movement was staffed by some of the world’s greatest intellectuals and scientists; unfortunately, they were amateurs in the business of revolution. The government could call on an army of ruthless professional agents--and they had no scruples about violence.

"The traditional British cozy is alive and well. Delicious. I was hooked from the first paragraph.” – Rhys Bowen, award-winning author of Her Royal Spyness

“Death of a Cozy Writer, G. M. Malliet’s hilarious first mystery, is a must-read for fans of Robert Barnard and P. G. Wodehouse. I'm looking forward eagerly to Inspector St. Just’s next case!” – Donna Andrews, award-winning author of The Penguin Who Knew Too Much

“A house party in a Cambridgeshire mansion with the usual suspects, er, guests-a sly patriarch, grasping relatives, a butler, and a victim named Ruthven (what else?)-I haven’t had so much fun since Anderson’s ‘Affair of the Bloodstained Egg Cosy.’ Pass the tea and scones, break out the sherry, settle down in the library by the fire and enjoy Malliet’s delightful tribute to the time-honored tradition of the English country house mystery.” – Marcia Talley, Agatha and Anthony award-winning author of Dead Man Dancing and six previous mysteries

“Death of a Cozy Writer is a romp, a classic tale of family dysfunction in a moody and often humourous English country house setting. A worthy addition to the classic mystery tradition and the perfect companion to a cup of tea and a roaring fire, or a sunny deck chair. Relax and let G. M. Malliet introduce you to the redoubtable Detective Chief Inspector St. Just of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

***

From deep in the heart of his eighteenth century English manor, millionaire Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk writes mystery novels and torments his four spoiled children with threats of disinheritance. Tiring of this device, the portly patriarch decides to weave a malicious twist into his well-worn plot. Gathering them all together for a family dinner, he announces his latest blow – a secret elopement with the beautiful Violet… who was once suspected of murdering her husband.

Within hours, eldest son and appointed heir Ruthven is found cleaved to death by a medieval mace. Since Ruthven is generally hated, no one seems too surprised or upset – least of all his cold-blooded wife Lillian. When Detective Chief Inspector St. Just is brought in to investigate, he meets with a deadly calm that goes beyond the usual English reserve. And soon Sir Adrian himself is found slumped over his writing desk – an ornate knife thrust into his heart. Trapped amid leering gargoyles and concrete walls, every member of the family is a likely suspect. Using a little Cornish brusqueness and brawn, can St. Just find the killer before the next-in-line to the family fortune ends up dead?

обложка книги Donde Nadie Te Encuentre Donde Nadie Te Encuentre

Un psiquiatra de La Sorbona especializado en mentes criminales viaja a la Barcelona de 1956. Quiere realizar un estudio sobre el caso de Teresa Pla Meseguer, llamada La Pastora, una mujer acusada de veintinueve muertes. Se trata del maquis más buscado por la Guardia Civil, y se ha convertido en una leyenda popular porque sigue libre. Sólo un periodista barcelonés parece tener claves importantes en torno al personaje, pero lo que el viajero francés le propone es algo fuera de lo normal: no desea datos sobre Teresa, sino un encuentro cara a cara.

El idealista Lucien Nourissier y el cínico Carlos Infante emprenderán ese viaje a las tierras del Maestrazgo, donde se esconde su casi imposible objetivo. A lo largo de su investigación deberán sortear la vigilancia de los guardias, distinguir las pistas verdaderas de las falsas y esquivar los mil obstáculos que les salen al paso. La novela se convierte entonces en una búsqueda, en una huida, en una aventura que nos descubre las miserias y la humanidad de una España terrible.

Y en el centro de este relato crudo y fascinante que se lee sin tregua, más allá del mito del guerrillero, emerge el personaje insospechado de la Pastora, histórico y real, que fue tanto mujer como hombre, y siempre estuvo en fuga del mundo y de sí mismo. Donde nadie te encuentre es una novela sobre el redescubrimiento de nuestro pasado y la infinita soledad del ser humano.

Deep Storm

‘Deep Storm' is the most spectacular science research facility ever constructed. Lying deep beneath the Atlantic on the ocean floor, the heavily guarded structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently-discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to a mystery steeped in centuries of myth and speculation.

Peter Crane, a former naval doctor, is summoned to a remote oil platform on the Atlantic to help diagnose a medical condition spreading through the rig workers. When he arrives, however, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below the rig. Sworn to secrecy, he descends to the ocean floor and the science station Deep Storm, where a top-secret team is investigating a remarkable discovery. A year earlier, he is told, routine drilling uncovered the remains of mankind's most sophisticated ancient civilization: the legendary Atlantis. But now that the site is being excavated, a series of bizarre illnesses has erupted among the workers. As he tries to discover the cause, Crane realizes that the covert operation conceals something far more complicated than a medical mystery – and that ‘Atlantis' might, in fact, be something far more sinister and deadly.

Like Child's spectacular bestsellers coauthored with Douglas Preston (Dance of Death, Relic), DEEP STORM melds scientific detail and gripping adventure in a stunningly imagined, chillingly real journey into unknown territory.

Deadly Descisions

From Publishers Weekly

Critics (and publicists) often compare Reichs to Patricia Cornwell, as both are women who write bestselling thrillers featuring a female forensic expert. There's a significant difference between them, though. Reichs brings to her grisly novels a scientific detail and authenticity that Cornwell rarely matchesAa virtue arising from Reich's background as a top forensic anthropologist for the governments of North Carolina and Quebec, a background mirrored by that of her heroine, Tempe Brennan. But CornwellAa journalist before she turned novelistAis a more accomplished writer than Reichs, and her more fluid prose and plotting support a heroine who exudes a vitality that Brennan doesn't. Reichs's strengths and weaknesses are apparent in this third novel (after Death du Jour) featuring narrator Brennan, which finds the crime fighter tangling with outlaw motorcycle gangs in Montreal. The novel opens as Brennan, "sorting badly mangled tissue" in an autopsy room, is interrupted by the arrival of another body: that of a girl, nine, caught by a bullet that one gang, the Heathens, had intended for a rival Viper. The mangled tissue belongs to two Heathens who'd been en route to bomb the Vipers' headquarters: war is raging among bikers in Montreal, and Brennan is soon caught in the battles, not least because her visiting nephew, Kit, is enamored with bikersAincluding some involved in the war. The narrative carries Brennan to assorted bikers' hangouts, and to much forensic digging, all of which Reichs handles with an admirable intensity and veracity. Still, the novel has a stiff, storyboarded feel, with a subplot involving Brennan's cop loverAhas he turned gang member?Aparticularly intrusive. The pacing is lopsided, laborious in front and action-stuffed at the back, and the narrative spreads its message about the malfeasance of outlaw bikers with a heavy hand. Overall, the novel works, but the gears show one time too many. Agent, Jennifer Rudolph Walsh at the Writer's Shop. Major ad/promo; 6-city author tour.

Death Dance

From Publishers Weekly

Reunited with fellow Manhattan crime scene investigators Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, brazen, outspoken Alexandra Cooper, assistant DA for the sex crimes prosecution unit, tackles the case of a murdered dancer with the Royal Ballet. While it was no secret that "world-renowned" Russian ballerina Natalya Galinova had a bad attitude and a cuckolded husband, that she was tossed, undetected, into the cooling unit at the Metropolitan Opera House still comes as a shock, even to a whole slew of suspects, among them her agent, Rinaldo; Broadway kingpin and voyeur Joe Berk; Berk's shady niece Mona; and the Met's slippery artistic director, Chet Dobbis. Varied clues paired with the fascinating theatrical spadework involved in the opera business lead to a sidewalk electrocution and several sabotaged stage sets. As additional suspects are tacked on, concurrent evidence and motives surface and the stage becomes increasingly deadly for everyone involved, especially Alex. Running alongside is a rape subplot involving an elusive Turkish doctor, and an unsolved urban assault case. Despite the overcrowded plot, this whodunit manages to pirouette to a satisfying climax just as the curtain drops. Fairstein (Entombed) fans will undoubtedly demand an encore.

Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels is conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad-boy. Shocked and shaken, he doesn't realize that he's accidentally captured a key piece of evidence. Ensnared in the city's most sensational crime in years, Nick investigates for a story of his own. Back off-or die-is the clear message as he closes in on the facts. Heedless, and perhaps in love, Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows.

Two masters of the thriller genre break new ground with their first collaboration, introducing two different sets of cops in two different cities, faced with two very different murders. In Santa Fe, Darrel Two Moons and Steve Katz are working the 4pm-2am Special Investigation shift when they're called to the scene of a blunt-force homicide. The victim: a wealthy art dealer with a shady reputation, very few friends and an awful lot of enemies who're not sorry to see him dead. Did he stumble on a burglar stealing a priceless painting, or did someone whose life he'd ruined finally seek revenge? Dorothy Breton and her partner McCain are called to downtown Boston the same night Dorothy found a revolver in her teenage son's backpack. Now her elder son is a witness to the killing of a promising athlete in a shoot-out. At least the evidence is stacked against the obvious culprit – until the autopsy shows the young man didn't die of gunshot wounds, and Dorothy has to dig a lot deeper to find the shocking truth.

Chief of Police Jesse Stone returns to investigate the murder of a troubled teenager in a seemingly bucolic New England town. The Paradise Men's Softball League has wrapped up another game, and Jesse Stone is lingering in the parking lot with his team-mates, drinking beer, swapping stories of double plays and beautiful women in the late summer twilight. But then a voice, scared, calls out to him from the edge of a nearby lake. He walks to the sound, where two men squat at the water's edge. In front of them, face down, is something that used to be a girl. The local cops haven't seen anything like this, but Jesse's LA past has made him all too familiar with floaters. This floating girl hadn't committed suicide, she hadn't been drowned: she'd been shot, and dumped, discarded like trash. Before long it becomes clear that the dead girl had a reputation and a taste for the wild life; and her own parents can't even be bothered to report her missing, or admit that she once was a child of theirs. All Jesse has to go on is a young man's school ring on a gold chain, and a hunch or two. At the same time, Jesse must battle two demons from his past: a renewed struggle with the bottle, and a continuing relationship with his ex-wife. Neither one will help him solve the case, and either one could jeopardize his career – and his life. Filled with magnetic characters and the muscular writing that are Parker's trademarks, Death in Paradise is a storytelling masterpiece.

Dead Sleep

From Publishers Weekly

Iles continues to amaze with his incredible range, this time around crafting a complex serial killer novel with the intimacy of a smalltown cozy and the punch of a techno-thriller. As different from Spandau Phoenix and 24 Hours as possible, it scores with surefooted plotting, a diverse cast of characters and perfectly calibrated suspense. An anonymous painter's series of candidly posed nudes called The Sleeping Woman bursts on the art scene, each painting selling in the million-dollar range overnight amid rumors that the models are not sleeping but dead. Beautiful, burned-out war photographer Jordan Glass chances into a show and recognizes the subject of a painting as her identical twin, Jane, who was kidnapped near her New Orleans home and never found. Jordan contacts the FBI agent who handled her sister's case, thereby setting in motion a hunt that ties the paintings to the disappearance of at least 11 New Orleans women. Persuading the FBI task force to add her to the team, Jordan tags along to Tulane University, where evidence points to art department head Roger Wheaton, who has a peculiar terminal illness, and his brilliant but disturbed graduate students. Meanwhile, Jordan falls for damaged FBI agent John Kaiser, and together they link her sister's case to a French expat art collector from Vietnam who knew Jordan's war photographer father who disappeared in Cambodia. Are all the women really dead? Is Jordan's father alive and involved? Is there more than one killer? Iles keeps the reader guessing right up to the double surprise ending, delivering the perfect final payoff his readers expect.

Devil Bones

In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery – a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine, there is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

Nothing is clear – neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? Why is the boy’s body remarkably well preserved? Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame devil worshippers and Wiccans. They begin a witch hunt, intent on seeking revenge.

Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan – “five-five, feisty, and forty-plus” – is called in to investigate, and a complex and gripping tale unfolds in this, Kathy Reichs’s eleventh taut, always surprising, scientifically fascinating mystery.

With a popular series on Fox – now in its third season and in full syndication – Kathy Reichs has established herself as the dominant talent in forensic mystery writing. Devil Bones features Reichs’s signature blend of forensic descriptions that “chill to the bone” (Entertainment Weekly) and the surprising plot twists that have made her books phenomenal bestsellers in the United States and around the world.

обложка книги December 6 December 6

Ever wonder how things might have been different for Rick Blaine, the ostensibly selfish nightclub owner from Casablanca, had he lived in Japan during the 1940s, rather than Morocco? Martin Cruz Smith offers a reasonable scenario in December 6.

This slickly plotted, exotically atmospheric thriller opens in Tokyo just a few days before bombs start raining on Pearl Harbor. There we meet roguish Harry Niles, the culturally conflicted son of religious missionaries and owner of the Happy Paris, a club known for its enigmatic jukebox jockey, Michiko, who also happens to be Harry's mistress. With war rumors rampant, Harry-distrusted by both U.S. and Japanese authorities-"was skipping town. Any sane person would." He has a seat waiting on what may be the final flight out to Hong Kong, and plans to escape from there to the States with a British diplomat's wife. But first, there are business and personal affairs to settle, not the least of which is an oil-tank con he's been running on the Imperial Navy-a desperate strategy to stop his beloved Japan from entering into self-destructive conflict with America. Harry also has to duck a sword-wielding military fanatic, who's seeking revenge for a long-ago incident that cost him honor, and bid sayonara to Michiko, a woman as scary as she is seductive. (Oh, well, at least they'll always have the Happy Paris.)

This book memorably re-creates wartime Tokyo, with its pet beetles and mincing geishas and naive belief that "victory lies in a faith in victory." Yet it's Harry Niles-cynical on top, sentimental beneath-who really carries December 6, a novel as brilliantly convoluted and captivating as any Smith (Gorky Park, Havana Bay) has yet concocted.

Dafne desvanecida

El cubano (La Habana, 1959) José Carlos Somoza quedó finalista del Nadal del 2.000 con esta complicada novela donde se plantea el conflicto entre el mundo `real` y el literario. La sociedad que imagina Somoza, aunque no necesariamente utópica ni ucrónica (transcurre en un Madrid reconocible y en tiempos contemporáneos), es la de la preponderancia de lo literario, de lo narrativo. Hay una macroeditorial, SALMACIS, omnipotente que además es sólo la terminal ibérica de una todavía mayor multinacional. En esta sociedad donde `todo el mundo escribe`, un escritor de fama, Juan Cobo, ha sufrido un accidente de automóvil y ha quedado amnésico. Recuerda vagamente haber entrevisto a una dama misteriosa de la que cree haberse enamorado y cuya pista sigue. Por aquí aparecen cosas bizarras como un restaurante `literario` donde los comensales, mientras restauran sus fuerzas, escriben en unos folios que les facilitan los siempre solícitos camareros. Algún día estos fragmentos serán editados. También aparece un curioso detective literario que se dedica, entre otras cosas, a detectar plagios e intertextualizaciones varias.

Según explica el flamante propietario de SALMACIS, la novela del siglo XIX presenció el predominio del personaje (Madame Bovary v.g.), el XX contempló el ascenso y la dictadura del autor, pero el XXI es el tiempo del editor. Será -¿es?- el editor quien conciba el libro y luego le de forma, recurriendo al autor como uno más dentro de la industria editorial (junto a correctores, `negros`, ilustradores, maquetadores, etc.), y sus preferencias van por la gran novela coral. Como una que aparece en `Dafne Desvanecida`, en la que se afanan docenas de anónimos escritores a sueldo, plasmando la cotidianidad de un día en la vida de Madrid. La obsesión del editor por las descripciones literales de la realidad no es, en todo caso, casual, ya que él es ciego y, como le gusta recalcar, sólo conoce las cosas a través de la lectura (en su caso no dice si Braille o en voz alta por otra persona).

En este mundo los libros alcanzan su relieve más por la solapa que por el interior. Lo importante, recalca el detective Neirs, es la solapa. Ella nos explica cómo hay que leer el libro. La cuestión no es baladí, y él lo explica. No es igual leer la Biblia como la verdad revelada de un dios omnipotente que leerla como lo que es, una colección de chascarrillos folklóricos de un pueblo de pastores del Sinaí. Pensemos, nos aconseja, en que si las `Mil Y Una Noches` se hubiera interpretado como la Palabra de Dios (es decir, si la `solapa` mantuviera tal), `muchos devotos hubieran muerto por Aladino, o habrían sido torturados por negar a Scherezade…`.

Existen también los `modelos literarios`, algunas bellísimas como esa Musa Gabbler Ochoa que se ofrece, voluptuosa, a Juan Cobo, invitándole a que la maltrate, como acaba de contarle que hacía su padre cuando era niña. Pero Cobo descubre en el apartamento de la Musa a un `voyeur`, no un voyeur sexual, sino literario, que emboscado tras unos biombos toma nota febrilmente de la escena. Después se dará cuenta de que la Gabbler se gana así la vida y le ha metido como involuntario `modelo literario` en su vida, notando cómo les sigue otro aparente `voyeur` que garrapatea subrepticiamente desde los portales y esquinas…

Pero nada es lo que parece. Cobos, en su búsqueda de la bella desconocida, a la que creyó entrever antes de su accidente en el restaurante literario (y que NO es la Gabbler), será sometido a un engaño y a un chantaje. Se le hace creer que un escritor zumbado la tiene secuestrada y que va a matarla entre torturas, como pura experiencia literaria. Mientras haga esto, irá publicando unos textos donde la mujer real va desapareciendo como mero personaje literario. Él debe hacer lo contrario, contra reloj, darle características reales, sin miedo a caer en el prosaísmo (la pinta vulgar, casi fea, aunque con un remoto brillo de belleza en los ojos). Cobos, como un loco, apremiado por el detective, lo hará. Para descubrir luego, de boca del editor de SALMACIS, que todo es mentira, que ha sido inducido a ello para obligarle a escribir. Pero incluso su accidente es falso y la amnesia fue provocada ¡Con su consentimiento! (según demuestra un contrato que él firmó antes de la intervención).

Luz Acaso es una solitaria y misteriosa mujer de mediana edad que decide acudir a un taller literario para que un profesional escriba la historia de su vida. Una novela de intriga apasionada que nos invita a contener la respiración y a vislumbrar los territorios ocultos, y casi siempre negados de la existencia.

Lo mejor del libro es la habilidad retorica de Millas para justificar la equidistancia entre ficcion y realidad, las coincidencias inverosimiles, los solapamientos de los personajes […] Hay una constante duda en los personajes que es la metafora de una duda mas profunda: que punto de ficcion tiene lo real. La duda se resuelve con la novela misma: todo es, en definitiva, literatura.

Higgins's novels of honor, bravery, and irresistible intrigue delight millions of readers every year, but few of his books pack the sheer narrative power of Day of Reckoning.



"Katherine Johnson was a couple of feet under dark green water. Her arms floated to each side, her legs were open, the eyes stared into eternity. There was a look of surprise on her face and she was achingly beautiful in death."



Journalist Katherine Johnson made the mistake of getting too close to the secrets of international crime boss Jack Fox -- but Fox made the mistake of killing her. Katherine's ex-husband is Blake Johnson, head of the clandestine White House department known as The Basement, and with the President's permission, the former FBI agent is about to take revenge. Wherever the money trail leads -- New York, England, Ireland, the Middle East -- Johnson and his Irish colleague, Sean Dillon, plan to hit Fox where it hurts the most, by cutting his illegal businesses to shreds, until Fox stands defenseless before his enemies.

But Fox did not become powerful by letting his enemies get that close. If Johnson and Dillon want to take him on, they will have to face his own brand of revenge. And it is a revenge every bit as deadly as their own.

Rookie federal judge Cate Fante's early days on the Philadelphia bench rapidly descend into nightmare in this compelling stand-alone legal thriller from bestseller Scottoline (Devil's Corner). Fante is the presiding judge in an intellectual property case in which Richard Marz, a former Philly prosecutor, is suing Art Simone, a powerhouse Hollywood producer, for stealing his idea for a TV series about a team of prosecutors called Attorneys@Law. The day after Fante dismisses the lawsuit, someone plugs Simone in the forehead with a.22 outside the restaurant where he was dining with his attorneys. Marz is the chief suspect, and the authorities believe Fante could be his next victim. But her troubles really begin after Marz's crooked police partner discovers her secret vice of picking up nameless strangers in seedy dives for one-night stands. While some may be dissatisfied by the out-of-left-field solution to the mystery and the limited efforts to explain the judge's motives for her reckless behavior, the fast pace and ever-increasing tension will keep readers turning the pages.

Cassie Deville rips off her own bodice at the start of this new romance by the author of Midnight Warrior. When Jared Danemount, Duke of Morland, meets the bare-breasted, sarong-swathed heroine on the beach in Regency-era Hawaii, he thinks she's just another Polynesian maiden. He doesn't know, as he tries to ride her wild stallion, Kapu, and gazes hungrily at her pectorals, that she is the daughter of his sworn enemy, Charles Deville, an artist who betrayed Jared's father during the Terror. Cassie offers herself as Jared's sexual hostage if he will take her, Kapu and Lani, Charles's Polynesian mistress, back to Europe with him so that she can try to save her father's life. Although, in a bit of role reversal, Cassie goes nightly to Jared's cabin aboard ship, she will not spend the night or give her heart. Johansen, who specializes in hot talk and steamy sexual politics, is less skilled once her lovers disembark. In unimposing Regency set pieces, Cassie makes friends with Jared's French ward, Josette; she shocks British high society with a low-cut red dress; she tries to save Jared's life as he stalks the cruel French villain. In a disjointed way, Johansen has provided sex talk for grown-ups and other scenes for adolescents.

London im Jahre 1817: Mit harter Hand bemüht sich die Obrigkeit, Unruhen und Kriminalität einzudämmen. Hinrichtungen sind an der Tagesordnung, Tausende sterben am Galgen. Captain Rider Sandman, ein unverschuldet in finanzielle Not geratener Gentleman, erhält vom Innenministerium den Auftrag, das Gnadengesuch von Charles Corday zu prüfen, der wegen Mordes an einer Gräfin zum Tod durch den Strang verurteilt wurde. Niemand zweifelt an der Schuld des Malers, auch Sandman hält seinen Auftrag für eine reine Formsache – bis ihm erhebliche Zweifel kommen. Es beginnt ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit, denn die Hinrichtung soll schon in sieben Tagen erfolgen. Doch die neuerlichen Ermittlungen werden nicht von allen Befragten gerne gesehen, und als der mysteriöse Seraphim Club Sandman eine hohe Bestechungssumme anbietet, die all seine Probleme auf einen Schlag lösen könnte, ist er sich sicher, auf der richtigen Spur zu sein …

Damon Mee was last seen in a blurred security video on the dance floor of a Kirkaldy nightclub. It was a routine missing persons case and it wasn't even on his patch, but inspector John rebus said he'd look into it as a favour to the boy's father, a friend from his school days. In the deft hands of Ian Rankin, the ripples of the investigation widen rapidly. They lead to the club's greasy owner, to a slightly bent casion croupier, to a drop dead blonde whose name nobody seems to know, to a Hibs striker with a talent for goals and a weakness for gambling and finally to the shadowed men who call the shots in Edinburgh's underworld. When it's over, Rebus has repaid a debt and his boss has received an unexpected birthday present.

What would you do if you only had twenty four hours to save the life of a friend?

Searching for lost souls and solving problems was never Nick Travers’s intention when he started doing favors for his buddies. A former football player who sometimes teaches blues history at Tulane, Nick would rather just watch the Louisiana rain and listen to old Muddy Waters records.

But when music mogul Teddy Paris, a former team-mate from the New Orleans Saints, visits Nick and asks him to help find $700,000 taken from a rap prodigy, Nick can’t turn down his friend. The missing money will pay a bounty on Paris’s head that was set by a cross-town rival, a street-hard thug named Cash.

Nick soon finds himself lost in the world of Gucci-lined Bentleys and endless bottles of Cristal champagne. He sets out with fifteen-year-old rap star, ALIAS, seeking a team of grifters that conned the kid. But uncertainty, the constant threat of violence, and a phantom grave robber haunt their search. When a killer hits too close, Nick takes ALIAS with him to the Mississippi Delta, where he comes under the protection and guidance of Nick’s mentor, blues legend JoJo Jackson, and his wife, Loretta.

Soon Nick, JoJo, and another old-school Delta tough guy do battle in the Dirty South rap world where money, sex, and murder threaten to take down Paris’s empire and destroy ALIAS. As cultures clash, the story winds its way through the infamous Calliope housing projects, the newly built mansions of New Orleans’s lake-front, and ultimately to the brackish muck of the Bayou Savage.

Dirty South is a thrilling tale of friendship, betrayal, revenge, and trust from a fresh and hip new voice. Take a ride to the other side of New Orleans, away from the neon gloss of Bourbon Street, to see what the dirty south is all about.

The plan is simple. A favor really. All Nick Travers, a former professional football player turned professor, has to do is drive up Highway 61 from New Orleans to Memphis and track down the lost brother of one of his best friends. But as Travers knows, these simple jobs seldom turn out smoothly.

His friend’s brother is Clyde James, who, in 1968, was one of the finest soul singers Memphis had to offer. But when James’s wife and close friend were murdered, his life was shattered. He turned to the streets, where, decades ago, he disappeared.

Travers’s search for the singer soon leads him to the casinos in Tunica, Mississippi, and converges with the agenda of the Dixie Mafia, a zealot gubernatorial candidate linked to a neo-Confederacy movement, and an obsessed killer who thinks he has a true spiritual link to the late Elvis Presley.

обложка книги Deadlock Deadlock

In this legal thriller for the evangelical Christian market, former trial lawyer- turned-novelist Bell imagines what would happen if a prochoice, atheistic Supreme Court Justice suddenly became a born-again believer. A near brush with death and the sudden loss of her mother leaves 52-year-old liberal Justice Millicent "Millie" Hollander pondering eternity and considering faith. When she becomes chief justice, Millie discovers that the belief she has embraced excites a firestorm of confusion and anger from her former supporters. A case involving a separation of religion and state opens up a huge rift in the Court, and the media soon turns the whole affair into a three-ring circus. Alarmed about Millie's potentially conservative positions, the president and stereotypically hard-drinking, womanizing Sen. Sam Levering plot her impeachment and possibly her death. A weak subplot concerns a teen's abortion and subsequent lawsuit against the clinic where it was performed, which rather unconvincingly intersects with Millie's story toward the close of the novel. Portions of the plot aren't completely fresh Angela Elwell Hunt's recent The Justice ably tackled the same general topic for the same audience. But Bell's take on the idea of a Supreme Court justice making a religious about-face offers some unique spins, including a curveball plot development that will blindside most readers. Laudably, most characters are multidimensional, and even the senator's evil troubleshooter, Anne Deveraux, becomes worthy of pity. Evangelical prolife fiction aficionados should appreciate this addition to the CBA thriller genre.

Victoria Pryde's husband, Edward, has run up huge debts and has been missing for two weeks. When she reads in her racing paper that a horse called Mr Pryde is dead, she hopes it is some sick joke, but then her husband's car is discovered – with the charred remains of a body in the boot.

The writing partnership of John Francome and James MacGregor got off to a cracking start with Eavesdropper (1986) and Riding High (1987), both bestsellers. The authenticity of the novels is reflected by the backgrounds of the two authors: John Francome has been Champion Jockey seven times and is regarded as the greatest National Hunt jockey ever known. James MacGregor is the pseudonym of a practising barrister, who also has an avid interest in racing.

" Oklahoma attorney Ben Kincaid put his reputation on the line when he represented Ray Goldman. The seemingly mild-mannered industrial chemist was charged with a staggeringly brutal crime: the torture and massacre of an entire suburban Tulsa family. But in spite of the grisly, tabloid-ready details of the sensational case, Ben's deft defense against a lack of hard evidence and improper police procedure made an acquittal all but certain. Until the prosecution's star witness – the lone survivor of the slaughter – took the stand and sealed Ray Goldman's fate." "Seven years later, Goldman's date with the death chamber is at hand. But seconds before the lethal injection, an eleventh-hour reprieve halts the execution – and launches Ben on a race against time to overturn Ray Goldman's conviction. Erin Faulkner, the young woman who narrowly escaped the carnage that claimed her family, has abruptly recanted her testimony after years of silence, desperate to keep an innocent man from dying. Just as suddenly, this near-miraculous turn of events turns tragic: Erin is discovered dead, an apparent suicide. And Ben Kincaid is the only witness to her stunning confession." Ben is certain Erin didn't commit suicide. She was a victim of murder – silenced by the same killer who butchered her family. All Ben has to do is prove it. But his unseen enemy is determined to cover his tracks once and for all… with blood.

People are voluntarily dying before their time in California. Some call it assisted suicide when cancer or heart disease or painful old age make the quality of life unbearable. Others say it is murder, that no-one has the right to help others take their own life.

As the debate rages over whether euthanasia should be legalised or not the man at the centre of the row, nick-named Doctor Death, continues his work. Dr Alex Delaware joins in the argument, but when Detective Milo Sturgis comes to him with the suspicion that some of Doctor Death's patients are not willing collaborators, Delaware finds himself on the front line of the affair, and increasingly believes that euthanasia is not the prime motivation. So what is driving Doctor Death to kill so many?

Masterly storytelling and expert insight into the darkest of human compulsions make #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware novels as compelling as they are addictive. And just when you think he has taken his spellbinding tales of mystery and psychological suspense to the limit, with Deception he takes a bold leap into terrifying and uncharted new territory.

Her name is Elise Freeman, and her chilling cry for help – to whoever may be listening – comes too late to save her. On a DVD found near her lifeless body, the emotionally and physically battered woman chronicles a year-and-a-half-long ordeal of monstrous abuse at the hands of three sadistic tormentors. But even more shocking than the lurid details is the revelation that the offenders, like their victim, are teachers at one of L.A. 's most prestigious prep schools. With Elise now dead by uncertain means, homicide detective Milo Sturgis is assigned to probe the hallowed halls of Windsor Prep Academy. And if ever he could use Dr. Alex Delaware's psychological prowess, it's now.

From the get-go, this case promises to be an uphill climb for truth and a down and dirty fight for justice. Allegations of rape, assault, and possibly murder at this esteemed institution renowned for molding Ivy Leaguers make for a social and political time bomb – especially given that one of the students has connections high up in City Hall. As the scandal-conscious elite of L.A.

close ranks around Windsor Prep, Alex and Milo must penetrate the citadel of wealth and scholarship to expose the hidden anguish, dirty secrets, and deadly sins festering among society's manor-born. But power and position are not easily surrendered, for that's when the best and the brightest turn brutal and ugly. Searching for predators among the privileged, Alex and Milo may well be walking into a highly polished death trap.

Everything that shaped him happened near that river…

Now its banks are filled with lies and greed, shame, and murder…

John Hart's debut, The King of Lies, was compelling and lyrical, with Janet Maslin of The New York Times declaring, “There hasn't been a thriller as showily literate since Scott Turow came along.” Now, in Down River, Hart makes a scorching return to Rowan County, where he drives his characters to the edge, explores the dark side of human nature, and questions the fundamental power of forgiveness.

Adam Chase has a violent streak, and not without reason. As a boy, he saw things that no child should see, suffered wounds that cut to the core and scarred thin. The trauma left him passionate and misunderstood--a fighter. After being narrowly acquitted of a murder charge, Adam is hounded out of the only home he's ever known, exiled for a sin he did not commit. For five long years he disappears, fades into the faceless gray of New York City. Now he's back and nobody knows why, not his family or the cops, not the enemies he left behind.

But Adam has his reasons.

Within hours of his return, he is beaten and accosted, confronted by his family and the women he still holds dear. No one knows what to make of Adam's return, but when bodies start turning up, the small town rises against him and Adam again finds himself embroiled in the fight of his life, not just to prove his own innocence, but to reclaim the only life he's ever wanted.

Bestselling author John Hart holds nothing back as he strips his characters bare. Secrets explode, emotions tear, and more than one person crosses the brink into deadly behavior as he examines the lengths to which people will go for money, family, and revenge.

A powerful, heart-pounding thriller, Down River will haunt your thoughts long after the last page is turned.

Dearly devoted Dexter

Dexter the Demon, Dexter the Avenger-whatever he chooses to call himself, the hero of this intelligent, darkly humorous series knows he's a monster who loves slicing people into little pieces. That Dexter limits his killing to "acceptable" victims-usually other serial killers-is designed to keep the reader from having to worry too much about the morality of his avocation. Dexter's just added his 40th victim, a homicidal pedophile, and is eagerly looking ahead to number 41 when he becomes involved in a case through his job as a blood spatter analyst at the Miami-Dade police forensics lab. A man is found with "everything on [his] body cut off, absolutely everything"-a piece of work that makes Dexter's own tidy killings look like child's play. This madman, nicknamed Danco, spends weeks surgically removing his victims' ears, lips, nose, arms, legs, etc., while keeping them alive to watch their own mutilation. Despite a certain professional admiration for Danco's dexterity, Dexter decides to take on the case. It's the contradictions in Dexter's character that make it all work-he's smart, he's funny, he cares for children, and yet he has no normal human responses or emotions. The first book in the series, Darkly Dreaming Dexter, was very well received; this one should be as well, and deservedly so.

In this compulsive page-turner, six-time New York Times bestselling author John Weisman blows the lid off one of Washington's deepest real-world secrets. The CIA, currently incapable of performing its core mission of supplying critical and time-sensitive human-based intelligence for the global war on terror, must now outsource the work to private contractors. Drawing on real-world crises and actual CIA operations, Direct Action takes readers deep inside this new and unreported covert warfare that is being fought on a daily basis by anonymous shadow warriors all across the globe.

Racing against the clock and shuttling between Washington, Paris, and the Middle East, one of those shadow warriors, former CIA case officer Tom Stafford, must slip below the radar to uncover, target, and neutralize a deadly al-Qa'ida bombmaker before the assassin can launch simultaneous multiple attacks against America and the West. And as if that weren't enough, Stafford must simultaneously open a second front and mount a clandestine war against the CIA itself, because for mysterious and seemingly inexplicable reasons the people at the very top of the Central Intelligence Agency want him to fail.

The characters and operations in Direct Action are drawn from true-life CIA personnel and their real-world missions. With Direct Action, John Weisman confirms once again Joseph Wambaugh's claim that "nobody writes better about the dark and dirty world of the CIA and black ops."

Kurz darauf wird eine Reihe brutaler Morde an männlichen Opfern begangen, und Ashley gerät unter dringenden Tatverdacht.

Divine Misdemeanors

You may know me best as Meredith Nic Essus, princess of faerie. Or perhaps as Merry Gentry, Los Angeles private eye. In the fey and mortal realms alike, my life is the stuff of royal intrigue and celebrity drama. Among my own, I have confronted horrendous enemies, endured my noble kin's treachery and malevolence, and honored my duty to conceive a royal heir — all for the right to claim the throne. But I turned my back on court and crown, choosing exile in the human world — and in the arms of my beloved Frost and Darkness.

While I may have rejected the monarchy, I cannot abandon my people. Someone is killing the fey, which has left the LAPD baffled and my guardsmen and me deeply disturbed. My kind are not easily captured or killed. At least not by mortals. I must get to the bottom of these horrendous murders, even if that means going up against Gilda, the Fairy Godmother, my rival for fey loyalties in Los Angeles.

But even stranger things are happening. Mortals I once healed with magic are suddenly performing miracles, a shocking phenomenon wreaking havoc on human/faerie relations. Though I am innocent, dark suspicions of banned magical activities swirl around me.

I thought I'd left the blood and politics behind in my own turbulent realm. I had dreamed of an idyllic life in sunny L.A. with my beloved ones beside me. But it becomes time to wake up and realize that evil knows no borders, and that nobody lives forever — even if they're magical.

обложка книги Deception aka Sanctum Deception aka Sanctum

Lachlan Harriot is in a state of shock. His wife Susie has been convicted of the murder of serial killer Andrew Gow, a prisoner in her care. Unless Harriot can come up with grounds for an appeal in two weeks' time, Susie will be given a life sentence, depriving her of her home, her family and her two-year-old daughter.

Harriot is convinced that his wife, a respected forensic psychiatrist, is innocent, and each night climbs the stairs to Susie's study where he goes through her papers, laboriously transcribing onto his computer her case notes, her interviews with Gow and his new wife Donna, and the press cuttings from the trial. But his search for the truth soon raises more questions than answers.

Why had Susie stolen a set of prison files and then lied about it? What was the precise nature of her relationship with Gow? And, most importantly, what is it in her study that she doesn't want her husband to find? As the documents on Harriot's computer begin to multiply, his perception of what really happened between Gow and Susie becomes ever more complex. But first he must decide what he's to do with a discovery that involves violence, sexual obsession, lust and ultimate betrayal.

In her first stand-alone novel following her acclaimed Garnethill trilogy, Denise Mina looks at the shifting sands that separate fact and fiction, perception and reality, responsibility and culpability. Sanctum is a powerful psychological portrait of people living on the edge, an account of the deals with the devil that lie beneath their apparent respectability, and the terrifying journeys they are prepared to make in order to survive.

On the heels of Patient Zero and Pride and Prejudice with Zombies comes David Moody's electrifying sequel to Hater in which humanity fights itself to the death against a backdrop of ultimate apocalyptic destruction.

In Dog Blood the Earth has been torn apart. Everyone is either human or Hater, victim or killer. Major cities have become vast refugee camps where human survivors cower together in fear. Amidst this indiscriminate fighting and killing, Danny McCoyne is on a mission to find his daughter, Ellis. Free of inhibitions, unrestricted by memories of the previous world, and driven by instinct, children are pure Haters and might well be the deciding factor in the future of the Hater race. But as McCoyne makes his way into the heart of human territory, an incident on the battlefield sets in place an unexpected chain of events, forcing him to question everything he believes he knows about the new order that has arisen and about the dynamic of the Hate itself.

Dexter tast in het duister

Overdag werkt Dexter als analist voor de politie, s avonds geeft hij toe aan zijn onverzadigbare honger om mensen te doden. Als een Robin Hood onder de seriemoordenaars vermoordt hij alleen die mensen die wat hem betreft de dood verdienen. Op de campus van de universiteit van Miami zijn twee studenten gevonden, verbrand en onthoofd, met op de plaats van hun hoofd een sculptuur van een stierenkop. Hoewel deze gruwelijke aanblik Dexter koud laat, is er toch iets wat Dexters innerlijke stem, de Zwarte Ruiter, naar de achtergrond doet verdwijnen. Dexter staat er voor het eerst in zijn leven helemaal alleen voor. Naast de beproevingen op zijn werk, krijgt Dexter ook privé te maken met nieuwe uitdagingen. Zijn twee stiefkinderen Cody en Astor lijken ook moordlustige neigingen te ontwikkelen. Wie is er een beter voorbeeld dan Dexter om hen op te voeden en te leren hun aandrang tot moord te kanaliseren?

Dexter Morgan is geen alledaagse politieagent. Naast zijn werk op het forensisch laboratorium van de politie van Miami heeft hij nog een duistere kant: hij moordt.

Hij heeft een overzadigbare honger naar geweld en een groot verlangen om mensen te vermoorden van wie hij vindt dat zij de dood verdienen. Hij beschouwt zichzelf als de linkerhand van God.

Wanneer een seriemoordenaar een aantal prostituees begint te vermoorden, wordt Dexter bij het onderzoek betrokken. Hij raakt eerst gefascineerd door de briljante en sadistische methode van de nieuwe seriemoordenaar, maar later voelt hij zich bedreigd en uitgedaagd door de moordenaar, wanneer deze Dexters moordmethodes blijkt toe te passen en te kopiëren. Een confrontatie lijkt onvermijdelijk.

D is for Deadbeat

From Publishers Weekly

"D" is for Detective Kinsey Millhone, given $25,000 of stolen drug money by a drunkard named Daggett who then dies in a drowning. When she decides to deliver the money to Daggett's designee, a young man who was the sole survivor of an auto accident perpetrated by Daggett, Kinsey finds herself in a dilemma: too many "D's" are after the loot. There are two Mrs. Daggetts, a daughter, the drug dealers and a determined killer who soon claims a second life. At this point, Grafton's lively, well-written adventure develops a deadly flaw. Kinsey comes upon the second victim shortly after he's been shot. Though dying, he is conscious and coherent. Why, then, doesn't she ask who did it? When asked the same thing by the police, she says, "I didn't want the last minutes of his life taken up with that stuff"a humane but unlikely rejoiner from any private eye. Even so, the pleasure of this story comes through. Let's give it a "D" for Dandy.

Uznany za seryjnego mordercę i skazany na śmierć za trzy potworne zbrodnie, Ronald Jeffreys został stracony. Mieszkańcy Platte City odetchnęli z ulgą, bo skończył się ich koszmar. Nikt jednak nie wiedział, jak straszliwą tajemnicę zabrał ze sobą do grobu Jeffreys. Trzy miesiące poźniej znaleziono martwe ciało następnego chłopca. Zginął w taki sam sposób, jak ofiary Jeffreysa.

Tymczasem ginie następna ofiara, zaś kolejny chłopiec zostaje uprowadzony. Nick i Maggie zaczynają rozumieć, że zabrnęli w ślepy zaułek. Każdy kolejny trop prowadzi donikąd, a czas ucieka. Czyżby mieli dać bezwzględnemu mordercy szansę udoskonalenia swoich zbrodni?

Dance Upon the Air

Amazon.com Review

Setting: Three Sisters Island, coast of New England, present day

Sensuality rating: 6

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts's new Three Sisters Island trilogy is pure magic! No, I mean really magic. An intriguing combination of The Witches of Eastwick and Sleeping With the Enemy, Dance Upon the Air introduces readers to the idyllic town of Three Sisters Island. Reputedly conjured by a trio of sisters seeking to escape the Salem witch-hunts, the island remains a place of quiet refuge for one and all, including pretty Nell Channing who arrives in town afraid of her own shadow, with few possessions and no past. But the warm, sunny days and cool, windswept nights, as well as the loving concern of new friends-especially hunky sheriff Zack Todd-soon lure skittish Nell into a much-welcome fresh life. Nell's new boss, the captivatingly lovely bookstore owner Mia Devlin (look for Mia's story, hopefully, in the not-too-distant future), wonders from what or whom Nell is running. Mia treats Nell as she would a sister, which isn't too far off the mark, helping Nell discover and explore her inner resources while Zack's romantic attentions bring a rosy glow to Nell's cheeks and to her future. But something wicked this way comes… Will Nell be ready to face and conquer her past? Even with the love and support of Mia, Zack, and Zack's fellow police officer, his peppery, down-to-earth sister Ripley, Nell has the fight of her life-the fight for her life-on her hands. Roberts continues to delight fans and create new believers with her talent and imagination.

From Publishers Weekly

The first installment of Roberts's newest trilogy set on Three Sisters island invokes the sensitive characterizations and magic that distinguished her previous trilogy (Jewels of the Sun; Tears of the Moon; Heart of the Sea). An enchanted island off the coast of Massachusetts, Three Sisters was formed as a sanctuary by three frightened witches fleeing persecution. Although the witches found peace on the island, each of them entered into an ill-fated relationship and died tragically. Now their descendants Nell Channing, Ripley Todd and Mia Devlin have to break the pattern set by their foremothers, or the island will sink. This first book focuses on Nell, a newcomer to the island who escaped her abusive husband by staging her death. Nell is unaware that she's a witch, but she is instinctively drawn to the island and secures a job as a chef in the caf‚ owned by Mia. Between coping with her bleak memories and deciding whether she can give her heart to Zach Todd, Ripley's brother and the island sheriff, Nell has little time to digest the discovery that she's a witch. In the end, however, Nell will have to come to terms with her newfound powers so that she can fight her all-too-demented husband. It's probably witchcraft that Roberts can turn out so many books and still create something that's sexy and charming, but in this tale, it's evident that she hasn't lost her fairy touch. (June 5)Forecast: No stranger to bestseller lists, Roberts triumphed in 2000 with the release of two hardcovers and eight mass market paperbacks, seven of which sold in the millions. National radio advertising and print advertisements in USA Today will ensure that her latest hits the big time as well.

Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps, has become the key member in a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Juba tests the new weapon by killing hundreds of people at a British royal wedding in London, Swanson is assigned to hunt down his old special ops rival.

The birth of a new reign of global terror can be stopped only by a confrontation between the two best snipers in the world, a duel in which the first shot wins. Usually.

On her very first day back, Irene is “welcomed” by a threatening bit of fan mail from someone who calls himself “Thanatos” – the ancient Greek name for “Death.” Though Irene shrugs it off as a prank, she soon learns to take Thanatos at his word. As Thanatos’ letters keep coming, each cleverly wrapped in mythological puzzles, the bodies mount – as does the tension in southern California ’s beach community of Las Piernas. Unwilling to be a pawn in a killer’s deadly game, Irene Kelly knows she must take action. Taunted by phone calls and deadly threats from a killer known only to her as Thanatos, Irene ignores warnings from her worried fiancé, homicide detective Frank Harriman, and embarks on her most dangerous case yet. As Irene unravels the clues to the case – each one embedded in ancient riddles and mythic puzzles – Thanatos watches her every move with a fascination that brings him too close for comfort. Yet Irene will stop at nothing to unveil the true identity of this genius of death, even if it means playing into the hands of a killer who is determined to make her part of his deadly destiny.

обложка книги Das Foucaultsche Pendel Das Foucaultsche Pendel

"Seit die Menschen nicht mehr an Gott glauben, glauben sie nicht etwa an nichts mehr, sondern an alles." Alles, was existiert, ist Text, ist Begriff. Die Geschichte, das ist das Überlieferte, und das ist nichts anderes als Text. "Die Begriffe verbinden sich per Analogie, ...denn wenn man Zusammenhänge finden will, findet man immer welche, Zusammenhänge zwischen allem und jedem, die Welt explodiert zu einem wirbelnden Netz von Verwandtschaften, in dem alles auf alles verweist und alles alles erklärt." So entsteht Ecos "Großer Plan" von einer Weltverschwörung, der, auf historischen Realitäten basierend, nichts anderes ist, als ein Fälschungssystem, das wahr ist, weil es auf Analogien basiert. Alles ist wahr, nur die Verknüpfungen nicht. Es gibt keine Wirklichkeit außer der, die zwischen Partnern per Konsens verabredet wird. Mit dieser Formel wären wir (fast!) bei bei Lyotard angelangt, jenem Vertreter der Postmoderne, ohne den Eco kaum zu verstehen ist.

Was ist der "Große Plan" des Romans denn anderes als das "Erhabene", das nicht Darstellbare, aber Vorstellbare bei Lyotard? Die Idee vom unbeweglichen Punkt im Universum, an dem das Pendel aufgehängt ist? Oder jenes mystische Zentrum Agarttha? Den Verlust der "Großen Erzählungen" beklagt Eco nicht mehr. Vielmehr nutzt er die Möglichkeiten der Texte und erzählt mit den alten, großen Erzählungen neue Geschichten, Stories. Versucht Eco nicht auch, das narrative Wissen mit dem wissenschaftlichen zu verknüpfen, und ist es nicht zum Scheitern verurteilt, wie jeder Vereinheitlichungsversuch, schließlich werden sowohl Belpo als auch Casaubon verrückt? Schwindet sie nicht, die empirische Wirklichkeit? Zerstört Eco nicht den falschen Schein, der "im Glauben an höhere Ursprünge und Zwecke, an eine Teleologie des Weltablaufs besteht, und (lässt er nicht) die empirische Welt als eine prinzipiell scheinhafte vor uns erstehen?"

Belpo versucht indessen den ästhetischen Umgang mit der neuen Technologie, dem Computer, der ihn gar zum Schreiben bringt. Jene Technologie, die dem narrative Wissen den Todesstoß verpasst hat. Doch seine Texte sind nur als magnetische Spuren virtuell auf Diskette vorhanden. Die Auswirkungen der neuen Technologien (Computer, synthetisierte Bilder) sind der Gestalt, dass sie die traditionellen Dualismen des abendländischen Denkens sprengen und damit deren Kultur, für die diese Dualismen konstitutiv sind, verabschieden, wie Eco z.B. bei den grotesken, multimedialen, okkulten Zeremonien vorführt.

Eco parodiert die Denkweise der Hermeneutik (Okkultismus, Voodoo etc.) durch raffinierte scheinlogische Konstruktionen und wirft dabei alles durcheinander. Er gebiert sich radikal eklektizistisch. Das wäre gegen Lyotards Vorstellungen, aber der Eklektizismus, der herauskommt, erscheint so lächerlich wie Charles Moores Bau "Piazza d`Italia" in New Orleans. Das Ergebnis kann bei Ecos Denken nur als Parodie aufgefasst werden; die meisten Verrücktheiten des Romans sind schließlich hinterlistiges, intellektuelles Schelmentum!

Warum aber erzählt Eco die Geschichte der Templer in Westernmanier oder als Comic-Strip beim Whiskey in der Kneipe oder mit seiner Freundin im Bett? Etwa nur, um die nicht-Akademiker bei der (Lese)Stange zu halten? In den 60er Jahren und später waren jene Autoren, die sich in Kneipen und Betten bewegten und jeden modernen, elitären Anspruch von sich wiesen, Autoren wie Ferlinghetti, Ginsberg oder Jörg Fauser (mit seinem Roman Rohstoff), diejenigen, die man zuerst als postmodern bezeichnete. Ist Eco, wenn er auf diese Generation zurückverweist, wenn er, wie jene, auf Trivialmythen abhebt, von Casablanca bis zu Zitaten von Rockgruppen, nicht schon post-post-modern? Hat er die Postmoderne, die fortwährend ihre Moderne gebiert und umgekehrt, weil sie sich jeweils beinhalten, nicht schon hinter sich gelassen? Ist er nicht hochaktuell, wenn er vorführt, wie mit seiner Art der Wissenschaftsvermittlung umgegangen wird, nämlich dem Palavern über die Templer beim Knabbern im Bett? So, und nicht anders, wird heute Wissenschaft rezipiert! Es ist problematisch, den gesamten Roman mittels postmoderner Termini zu hinterfragen, doch ist sicher: Das Foucaultsche Pendel ist ein geistsprühender Krimi, ganz gleich welcher Blödsinn in manchen Rezensionen zu lesen war.

Overdag werkt Dexter als bloedanalist voor de politie, ’s avonds geeft hij toe aan zijn onverzadigbare honger naar geweld en zijn grote verlangen mensen te doden. Als een Robin Hood onder de seriemoordenaars vermoordt hij alleen die mensen die de dood verdienen.

In dit tweede deel stuit de politie van Miami op een moordenaar die, terwijl het slachtoffer nog leeft, alles wegsnijdt: neus, ogen, oren, ledematen — echt alles. Daarmee vergeleken is Dexters gesnij maar kinderspel. Dexter ziet groen van jaloezie. Wie is deze kunstenaar?

The anomaly called the Breach is the government’s most carefully guarded secret.

But there is another secret even less known… and far more terrifying.

As the U.S. President addresses the nation from the Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins’ motives: “See Scalar.”

Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent—caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders—along with partner and lover Paige Campbell and technology expert Bethany Stewart, have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery once spoken of in terrified whispers by the long since silenced. But their breakneck race cross-country—and back through time and malleable memory—is calling the total destructive might of a shadow government down upon them. For Travis Chase has a dark destiny he cannot be allowed to fulfill…

обложка книги Death Angels Death Angels

The debut thriller in the internationally acclaimed series – available for the first time in the United States

A long-time number one bestseller in his native Sweden, Åke Edwardson's profile was conspicuously raised when his novel Frozen Tracks was chosen as a finalist for a 2008 Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Until now, however, the novel that launched Edwardson's critically acclaimed Erik Winter series has never been available in the United States. With a new series translator who fully captures Edwardson's signature atmospheric style, Death Angels is America's introduction to Sweden's youngest Chief Inspector as he teams up with Scotland Yard to solve the mysterious parallel killings of young British and Swedish tourists. Richly evocative of mid-nineties South London and Gothenburg, Sweden, Death Angels is a brilliant opening to a mesmerizing series that has become a phenomenon in international crime fiction.

***

“A crime novel with snappy dialogue, depth and-most important of all-suspense from beginning to end.” – Morala Vadstena Tidning (Sweden)

“Edwardson will not be hampered by the constraints of the crime genre… with his sharp dialogue… and a backdrop of darkness that recalls the early works of James Ellroy, one must proclaim Åke Edwardson a master of the Scandinavian detective novel.” – Le Monde des Livres (France)

“A read which even on a really warm July day sends cold shivers down my spine… Edwardson’s language is vivid and full of nuance.” – Hufvudstadsbladet (Finland)

“A fast, sleek, hard ballad.” – Die Welt (Germany)

“Clever, exciting, atmospheric!” – Der Spiegel (Germany)

Carol O'Connell succeeds triumphantly, once again, in creating an intriguing crime scenario and also an engaging group of characters, all damaged in their own different ways, who pursue their destinies in a city that is both darkly dangerous and resilient to disaster. After bringing in a unanimous and very dubious acquittal in a murder case, only three of the original jurors remain alive. And someone, known only as the 'Reaper' because of the signature of a bloody scythe left at the crime scenes, is clearly determined to make a clean sweep of the terrified survivors. Detective Sgt. Riker, although on paid sick leave after a teenage psychopath pumped four bullets into his chest, has a keen but unofficial interest in the case. And his NYPD Special Crimes partner, Kathy Mallory, orphan, sociopath and computer genius, is resolute that there will be no more personal defections in her life, and determined to discover the identity of the killer before he, or she makes a complete mockery of justice.

Don't imagine for one moment that I'm not watching you… The Metropole Hotel, Brighton. After a heady New Year's Eve ball, a woman is brutally raped as she returns to her room. A week later, another woman is attacked. Both victims' shoes are taken by the offender… Detective Superintendent Roy Grace soon realises that these new cases bear remarkable similarities to an unsolved series of crimes in the city back in 1997. The perpetrator had been dubbed '-Shoe Man' and was believed to have raped five women before murdering his sixth victim and vanishing. Could this be a copycat, or has Shoe Man resurfaced? When more women are assaulted, Grace becomes increasingly certain that they are dealing with the same man. And that by delving back into the past – a time in which we see Grace and his missing wife Sandy still apparently happy together – he may find the key to unlocking the current mystery. Soon Grace and his team will find themselves in a desperate race against the clock to identify and save the life of the new sixth victim…

But Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there was more to the killing than jealous rage-all of Bissel's computer files were deliberately corrupted. To Roarke, it's the computer attack that poses the real threat. He and Reva have been under a code-red government contract to develop a program that would shield against techno-terrorists. But this deadly new breed of hackers isn't afraid to kill to protect their secret-and it's up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas to shut them down before the nightmare can spread to the whole country.
