He slowly eased back on the throttle and brought the boat to a stop on the desolate river. They zipped the large canvas bag shut and then hoisted the body over the side of the boat and watched as it slipped beneath the dark surface. Looking to the west, they could see fiery storm clouds were brewing - an eery sign of the fire storm of brutal killings and ruthless revenge to come.  Detective Mac McRyan returns home to Minnesota to find the dead body of a retired police detective in the scraggly trees along the rough shores of an island in the Mississippi River. His nearly unrecognizable body was beaten and tortured. As the detectives dig deeper and pull back the layers on the murder they get far more than they bargained for. Their investigation unleashes a mysterious, ruthless, and fearless opponent who will stop at nothing and will kill anyone.  New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Roger Stelljes has crafted another addictive pulse-pounding thriller filled with his trademark twists and turns.  1.

Flynn Book I
64,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

FLYNN is a fundamental American hero in the tradition of Will Kane from High Noon, or Jeremiah Johnson from the film of the same name. He displays the rugged individualism and integrity that made this country great. Preston Flynn goes far beyond the bounds of the ordinary, a perfect specimen of male excellence, as fearless as he is handsome. Orphaned at age six, after witnessing the murder of his parents, he was reared by his uncle, United States Marhal, Freeman Pace, who wore a badge in Laredo, Texas. Preston Flynn followed in his uncle's foot steps, becoming the fastest gun in the State of Texas, earning a coveted reputation and a deputy marshal's badge at age sixteen. His state of concentration became awesome when challenged by fools, outlaws and gunslingers. He could close down mentally to a point that the rise and fall of his breath was no longer discernible, his eyes becoming as expressionless as those of a corpse, displaying the smile he was famous for, an expression that moved no further than his lips, and could make a man's blood run cold. As if he possess a sixth sense, he knew the instant his opponent would draw, his own hand moving in a blur of speed. Many men wanted to challenge him, but few had the nerve. His life was filled with violence, conflict, and frustration. His only weakness was the woman he loved, a woman who was beyond his reach, but remained in his blood like a fever.

The Judge
16,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Shortlisted for the Cricket Writers' Club Book of the Year Award. 'A red-blooded memoir told with unexpected sensitivity', Guardian, Season's Reading Robin Smith was one of England's most popular cricketers of the 1990s. The Judge, as he was known to all, took on some of the most dangerous fast bowlers of all time with a skill and fearlessness that ensured hero status. His savage square cut drew roars of approval from fans all around the world, especially those of his beloved England and Hampshire. But when he was prematurely dumped from the England set-up at the age of 32, he had to face his toughest opponent of all - himself. Smith suffered a debilitating loss of identity, especially when he retired from professional cricket in 2003, and struggled to deal with the contradictions in his personality. Was he the Judge, the fearless warrior, or Robin Smith, the frantic worrier? Without a support structure to transition from cricket to the outside world, Smith suffered from mental health, alcohol, marital and financial problems until he hit rock bottom and planned to take his own life. In The Judge, he revisits his experience of extreme darkness and challenges received wisdom about masculinity and mental health. He also shares the many highs and lows of his eventful international and county career, including his exhilarating battles with the West Indies and his struggles against mystery spin. And he reflects fondly on a time when cricketers worked hard and partied even harder; a time almost unrecognisable to the modern day.

Famous Trials: Thrill-Killers
3,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the legendary Famous Trials series of real-life courtroom dramas, two classic murder trials abridged and refreshed as Penguin Specials for modern readers, selected and introduced by Alex McBride, author of Defending the Guilty Thomas Cream, erstwhile Sunday school teacher and serial poisoner, has an unsettling air and wonky eye. He also happens to be a doctor, which provides him with ample means and an ideal cover for his murderous activities. His victims are vulnerable young women, whose trust he gains with drinks and trips to the music hall, before offering them pills or swigs from a medicine bottle. A few hours later, they are dying in agony. The Honourable Thomas Ley, meanwhile, has an even better disguise: he's the former Justice Minister for New South Wales and a successful businessman, albeit with a shady past. Rumours abound when a political opponent disappears without trace and a business partner winds up at the bottom of a cliff. Neither killer can help themselves - and this, in the end, leads to their downfall - and both defy our comprehension. Brilliantly reconstructed here, their trials, in 1892 and 1947, reveal a deeply sinister conundrum: by the time you've discovered the secrets in their heart, it's inevitably much too late. The legendary Famous Trials series set the benchmark for historical crime writing with its accounts of the most notorious and intriguing criminal trials of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Expertly reconstructed from court transcripts, these often sensational narratives have gripped generations of readers since they first appeared in 1941. In this digital edition, two of the very best Famous Trials have been selected, introduced and further abridged by criminal barrister and author Alex McBride to provide modern readers with the most compelling versions yet of these court-room classics. Alex McBride is a criminal barrister. His book Defending the Guilty: Truth and Lies in the Criminal Courtroom was shortlisted for the 2010 Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction and is available in Penguin. He has written for the Guardian, Independent, Prospect and New Statesman, and has contributed to various BBC programmes, including From Our Own Correspondent.
