Michael Connelly – The Black Echo

So, after seeing the fourth season of Bosch, I decided it is time to read the novels it is based upon. Actually, Michael Connelly is also involved in the TV series that is derived from his novels. The Black Echo was published in 1992, and thankfully many changes have been made from the novels to […]

Axel Hollmann – Benzin. Ein Fall für Julia Wagner

Hier habe ich bereits den zweiten Roman von Axel Hollmann, vor fast drei Jahren schrieb ich an dieser Stelle über Rissiges Eis. Mit Benzin hatte ich nun den ersten Band der Reihe um die Journalistin Julia Wagner vor meinen Augen. Auch Rissiges Eis hatte eine weibliche Heldin, eine gewisse Vorliebe des Autors scheint sich abzuzeichnen. […]

Steph Broadribb – Deep Down Dead

Did you ever get the urge to shake a book’s protagonist for acting stupid? Well, in Deep Down Dead I did. Multiple times. I am quite sure that I do not understand how women think, but for Lori Anderson, a female bounty hunter, I actually wondered how she survived that long. Maybe as a mother […]

Alex Thomas – Die Tränen der Kinder

Mystery und Thriller ist eine Kombination, der ich mich in Romanen äußerst gerne widme. Mit Die Tränen der Kinder ist der erste Roman einer Reihe erschienen, die in der Ankh-Welt von Alex Thomas spielt und sich um die Agentin Paula Tennant dreht. Und bevor ich weiter über den Roman schreibe, gleich vorneweg: Ich kenne und […]

Nadja Roth – Seelenschatten

Selten, dass ich eine Reihe nicht mit dem ersten Band beginne. Hier war es eher der Zufall des Angebots. Seelenschatten wird als Krimi / Thriller vertrieben. Und dieser Roman hat es mir nicht leicht gemacht. Die Protagonistin ist die Kriminalhauptkommissarin Elli Werner, kürzlich von Schifferstadt nach Speyer gezogen. Sie hat gerade einen ziemlich verbockten Fall […]

Layton Green – The Summoner

So, more than a year has passed to finally get around to book number 1 of the Dominic Grey series: The Summoner. I wrote about how I started with book #3 in autumn 2016, but of course, I had to go back for the first one. Well, I can say that it did not disappoint. […]

Mason Cross – The Killing Season

I came across (no pun intended) this book because of a tweet by Steven Dunne, whose Reaper series I already wrote about. The Killing Season is the first book in the series of Carter Blake, some kind of ex-mercinary on his mission to help finding people. Well, I don’t spurn a recommendation by a great […]

Simon Kernick – The Crime Trade

Well, Tina Boyd, her first case in the series is given with The Crime Trade by Simon Kernick. I was always curious about this series and finally got around to start with number one. And quite right from the beginning I had my suspicion about who was behind the initial incident written in the book. […]

Marcus Sakey – Afterlife

From Brillance I knew that Marcus Sakey is into fantastic fictions. His new novel Afterlife is not connected to any past series of his, so I took the chance to read a current book rather than going on with Brillance part 2. Well, this new one is a hell of a ride and out of […]

Steven Dunne – The Disciple

So I finally came around to read the successor of The Reaper: The Disciple. Yes, it is DI Damen Brook again who cannot let go off the reaper. And while he is quite sure the reaper is dead, incidents happening in Derby and at his doughter’s place not only bind him as suspect to a […]
