Tante Poldi und die sizilianischen Löwen

Bastei Lübbe | Sizilienkrimi


Meerblick. Sonne. Ruhe. Mehr will Poldi nicht, als sie kurz nach ihrem sechzigsten Geburtstag von München nach Sizilien zieht. Dabei hat sie aber nicht mit der Familie ihres verstorbenen Exmannes gerechnet. Denn die, Sizilianer durch und durch, wollen Poldi natürlich das Dolce Vita nahebringen. Das war's dann mit der Ruhe.

Als wäre es damit nicht genug: Eines Tages verschwindet Valentino, der Poldi in Haus und Garten ausgeholfen hat, spurlos. Ist er etwa in die Fänge der Mafia geraten? Poldi macht sich auf die Suche - und kreuzt dabei schon bald den Weg des attraktiven Commissario Montana ...

Cotton Reloaded - 01

Bastei Lübbe | Cotton Reloaded


Digitale Romanserie. Folge 1.

Eine neue Zeit. Eine neue Mission. Ein neuer Held.

Der brutale Mord an einer Chinesin lässt Jeremiah Cotton, einem jungen Cop beim New York City Police Department, keine Ruhe. Er vermutet, dass die Frau das Opfer eines Serienkillers geworden ist. Doch keiner glaubt ihm; er wird von dem Fall abgezogen. Als Cotton eigenmächtig Nachforschungen anstellt, stößt er auf eine Abteilung des FBI, von deren Existenz niemand weiß: das "G-Team".

Stur und hartnäckig stellt Cotton unbequeme Fragen über die mysteriöse Einheit - und bringt Special Agent Philippa "Phil" Decker gegen sich auf. Als er nur knapp einem Mordanschlag entgeht, versteht Cotton, dass dies kein gewöhnlicher Mordfall ist und er nicht bloß einen Serienkiller jagt. Denn das G-Team scheint in den Fall verstrickt zu sein ...

Erleben Sie die Geburt einer neuen Legende. COTTON RELOADED ist das Remake der erfolgreichen Kultserie und erscheint monatlich in abgeschlossenen Folgen als E-Book.

Apocalypsis - The Message

Bastei Entertainment | The End of the World Series


Two parallel, almost identical worlds. One corresponds to the year 2011, the other world exists two years later in 2013. One world is on the verge of destruction; the other is unaware of the pending apocalypse.

2011: When Franz Laurenz watches Edward Kelly's death on live television, he immediately flies back to Rome. He must save humanity from damnation.

2013: College professor Peter Adam has apocalyptic visions. When his wife and young daughter die in a plane crash, Peter learns their deaths are connected to the occult. He realizes too late that he is the key to everything. That he has long-since unleashed the evil. And that only he can stop the end of the world.

About the Series

Written by award-winning screenwriter and author Mario Giordano, "Apocalypsis" is gripping and explosive: what starts out as a sophisticated Vatican conspiracy soon develops into a uniquely intense and spectacular thriller.

APOCALYPSIS is a serial novel told in twelve installments per book. The entire saga is revealed throughout three complete novels; this is the complete third novel.

About the Author

Mario Giordano was born 1963 in Munich, studied psychology in Düsseldorf and writes novels for adults old and young as well as screenplays (his credits include Tatort, Schimanski, Polizeiruf 110, Das Experiment). He lives in Berlin.

Apocalypsis - Brutal Awakening

Bastei Lübbe | The End of the World Series


Journalist Peter Adam wakes up in Germany. The Cologne Cathedral. He has somehow survived near-fatal injuries. But his memory from the past few days has been erased. What happened? Why can't he remember? All around him the earth is shaking and Hell literally breaks loose as people spontaneously combust. It seems the apocalypse has begun...

Meanwhile, the Vatican's chief exorcist has been elected pope. He has taken the name Peter II and seems set to fulfill the devastating prophecy of Malachi. The last hope for salvation? An enigmatic tattoo that has appeared all over Peter Adam's body: in it, a pattern of ancient symbols could reveal one of the greatest mysteries in human history-the origin of evil.

Apocalypsis - Demons Among Us

Bastei Lübbe | The End of the World Series


Rome. Turmoil in the Eternal City. The pope has resigned and disappeared without a trace. Nobody knows if he is even still alive.

At the same time, his closest confidants are being murdered in the most gruesome ways. As the conclave convenes to elect a successor to the Holy See, Vatican reporter Peter Adam begins to search for the missing pope. His search leads him to a mysterious underground religious fraternity, which has been working against the Church for centuries. Its members base their beliefs on a medieval prophecy: He who shall succeed the current Pope will call himself Peter II. And he will be the last to hold the See of St. Peter.

Is the apocalypse at hand? And what will it bring? The fulfillment of mankind's oldest fantasies, or the end of the world?

Tante Poldi ist sauer: Zuerst wird ihr das Wasser abgestellt, dann auch noch der Hund ihrer Freundin um die Ecke gebracht. Kreizsacklzement! Erste Ermittlungen führen sie zum Winzer Avola. Und der ist auch noch so hammer-attraktiv, dass die Poldi nach einer heißen Nacht prompt ihre Ermittlungen vergisst.

Bis am nächsten Morgen die Polizei vor Avolas Tür steht. Denn zwischen seinen Reben wurde eine Leiche gefunden, und Commissario Montana ist alles andere als erfreut, dass ausgerechnet Poldi Avola ein Alibi geben kann. Außerdem bleibt die Frage: Wer hat Giuliana getötet - und warum?
