The Killing Lessons: Saul Black
´´This novel breaks brilliant. It´s hard to tell what´s the best part of The Killing Lessons: the sweaty-palm plot that races along like a squad car on a high-speed pursuit, the breathtaking depictions of the characters, good and bad, or author Black´s inimitable style. My vote? All three.´´ – Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of The Skin Collector and Solitude Creek In their isolated country house, a mother and her two children prepare to wait out a blinding snowstorm. Two violent predators walk through the door. Nothing will ever be the same. When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper´s isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it´s the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it´s just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done. For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of victims-women abducted, tortured and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them-has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she´s losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens. But the murders at the Cooper farmhouse didn´t quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena´s ten-year-old daughter Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more dangerous than what she´s running from. In this extraordinary, pulse-pounding debut, Saul Black takes us deep into the mind of a psychopath, and into the troubled heart of the woman determined to stop him. This audiobook includes an interview with the author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christina Delaine. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aren/002037/bk_aren_002037_sample.mp3.

Ein Serienkiller bringt im Westen der USA offenbar willkürlich Menschen bestialisch um und hinterlässt an deren Leiche kleine Plastikfiguren. Als er in den verschneiten Bergen von Colorado erneut zuschlägt, ist dies bereits sein siebtes Opfer. Ein zehnjähriges Mädchen kann dem Mörder mit knapper Not entkommen und findet, vor panischer Angst verstummt, Zuflucht bei einem todkranken Schriftsteller, der sich in eine einsame Hütte im Wald zurückgezogen hat. Beiden ist klar, dass der Täter sie früher oder später aufspüren wird. Detective Valerie Hart vom San Francisco Police Department ist auf den Killer angesetzt, kann aber seine Vorgehensweise einfach nicht entschlüsseln. Und das ist nicht gut für ihr posttraumatisches Stresssyndrom... 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Richard Barenberg. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adko/001799/bk_adko_001799_sample.mp3.

Six-Word Lessons for Writing Business Plans: 100 Lessons to Woo Investors and Avoid Deal-Killing Blunders: Ray Waldmann
Kristi Charish´s The Voodoo Killings introduces Kincaid Strange, not your average voodoo practitioner.... For starters, she´s only 27. Then there´s the fact that she lives in rain-soaked Seattle, which is not exactly Haiti. And she´s broke. With raising zombies outlawed throughout the continental USA, Kincaid has to eke out a living running séances for university students with more money than brains who are desperate for guitar lessons with the ghost of a Seattle grunge rocker - who happens to be Kincaid´s on-again, off-again roommate. Then a stray zombie turns up outside her neighborhood bar: Cameron Wight, an up-and-coming visual artist with no recollection of how he died or who raised him. Not only is it dangerous for Kincaid to be caught with an unauthorized zombie, she soon realizes he´s tied to a spate of murders: Someone is targeting the zombies and voodoo practitioners in Seattle´s infamous Underground City, a paranormal hub. When the police refuse to investigate, the City´s oldest and foremost zombie asks Kincaid to help. Raising ghosts and zombies is one thing, but finding a murderer? She´s broke, but she´s not stupid. And then she becomes the target.... As the saying goes, when it rains it pours, especially in Seattle. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susannah Jones.
