Jerry Cotton 3270 - Krimi-Serie

Bastei Entertainment | Jerry Cotton


Eine brutale Motorradgang versetzte New York City in Angst und Schrecken. Die fünfköpfige Truppe hatte es auf Banken und Geldtransporter abgesehen und ging bei ihren Raubzügen äußerst professionell vor. Ihre Gesichter verbargen die Täter hinter grellroten Tüchern mit dem stilisierten Antlitz einer Schlange. Während wir fieberhaft nach der Bande fahndeten, veröffentlichte eine Online-Nachrichtenseite einen undeutlichen Schnappschuss, auf dem das Gesicht eines weiblichen Gang-Mitglieds zu erkennen war. Die Auswertung des Bildmaterials förderte Erstaunliches zutage: Bei der jungen Frau handelte es sich mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit um Cara Rodríguez, die Tochter eines Kongressabgeordneten, die fünf Jahre zuvor während eines Kolumbien-Urlaubs entführt worden war. Weshalb tauchte sie nun als Mitglied einer brutalen Motorrad-Gang in New York auf?

Bastei Entertainment | Jerry Cotton Sonder-Edition


Als der Flug der United Airways von New York nach Chicago am Lake Erie abstürzte, wurde schnell klar, dass das Unglück durch eine Bombe an Bord ausgelöst worden war. Phil und ich wurden mit den Ermittlungen betraut, doch es ergab sich keine Spur, die zu dem oder die Täter geführt hätte. Durch einen Zufall stießen wir darauf, dass ein Mann an Bord war, der nicht auf der Passagierliste stand. Konnte es sein, dass jemand 38 Menschen in den Tod schickte, um einen zu ermorden ...

Blood Games

BWL Publishing Inc. | A Garreth Mikaelian Mystery


Garreth Mikaelian is comfortably settled in a town where, his nature unknown to those around him, he works the night shift as a police officer. His blood comes in bottles. He has a routine and friends. But that peace is shattered when his fellow officer and sometime lover Maggie Lebekov is killed by a lethal trio playing ever escalating blood games. Garreth finds himself racing to locate the suspects before other law enforcement officers do, to be sure they are captured alive. Because if they are not yet vampires, and the leader may already be a very old and powerful vampire, they have drunk vampire blood and if killed will rise again even more deadly.

---

As a fan of Gareth Mikaelian since I stumbled across the first book, I was delighted to find this one to add to my new e-reader. Now if I could just get the others... Lee Killough keeps up her excellent work with police procedurals while creating a vampirism which could easily be real. Better than Anne Rice any day.

"Family Ties started out with a bang and kept me on my toes throughout the entire book. Ms. Hill did an outstanding job with the plotline, and I was literally biting my nails the entire time I was reading. I couldn't put this fast paced, action packed book down. I HAD to find out what happened next. It was addicting. Ms. Hill has a gift of hooking the reader and not letting go until the very last word. And even then, there was a description of Family Secrets (the first book in the series). It's now on my HAVE TO BUY list. So let me just leave you with this one suggestion. You really want to go out and buy this book. It's a 114 page book that is filled with every emotion you can think of. You won't want to miss this one. Ms. Hill is an author to watch."

A well-written Romantic Suspense novel. The Native American culture was woven through out the novel, giving the reader into a glimpse into the contemporary struggles, and Vancouver, Canada. The who-done-it resolution sent me back to Amazon to purchase another novel by Jude Pittman.

The Last Dark Place

Mysterious Press at Bastei Entertainment | The Abe Lieberman Mysteries


Handcuffed to a dead man, Lieberman vows to take on the Chicago mob.

Thirty-three years ago, Connie Gower decided to raise hell in a synagogue. Drunk, armed, and out for revenge, he came to hunt down Abe Lieberman, a young cop he believed had killed his brother in a shoot-out. Lieberman takes him down, unafraid to return fire. Since then, Gower has had few run-ins with the law, even as he made a name for himself as one of the Chicago mob's most feared contract killers. When he finally gets nailed in Yuma, where he's fled to avoid a murder charge, the Chicago police send Lieberman to bring him home.

Handcuffed to each other, they are about to board the plane when a geriatric airport janitor shuffles towards them, puts on his glasses, and shoots the hitman dead. Though stooped, thin, and old, inside Lieberman is still the young firebrand who wasn't afraid to draw his gun to protect his family and synagogue. The men who had Connie Gower killed have interfered with justice, and Lieberman will do anything to make them pay.

About the Author:

Stuart M. Kaminsky (1934-2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema - two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life's work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood's Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote "Bullet for a Star", his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life. Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as "the anti-Philip Marlowe". In 1981's "Death of a Dissident", Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009.

Review quote:

"Kaminsky stands out as a subtle historian, unobtrusively but entertainingly weaving into the story itself what people were wearing, eating, driving, and listening to on the radio. A page-turning romp." - Booklist.

"For anyone with a taste for old Hollywood B-movie mysteries, Edgar winner Kaminsky offers plenty of nostalgic fun . . . The tone is light, the pace brisk, the tongue firmly in cheek." - Publishers Weekly.

"Marvelously entertaining." - Newsday.

"Makes the totally wacky possible . . . Peters [is] an unblemished delight." - Washington Post.

"The Ed McBain of Mother Russia." - Kirkus Reviews.
