Paddy Meehan returns in Denise Mina's most powerful mystery yet, nominated for a 2007 Edgar Award When journalist Paddy Meehan investigates a domestic dispute, the well-dressed man who answers the door assures her the blonde in the shadows behind him is fine, and slips her money before he closes the door. In fact, the woman was tortured and left to die later that night, and Paddy has only days to uncover the truth before the newspaper learns of her bribe and the police close the case for reasons of their own. Only Paddy cares enough to pursue a dark and brutal story that could make her career-or kill her, in a novel that proves why Denise Mina is "some kind of magnificent" (Wall Street Journal). "Brutally funny." -People "Mina again demonstrates why she is one of the best mystery writers on either side of the Atlantic." -Miami Herald "In all her insecurity, Paddy is achingly real . . . and Mina's note-perfect writing captures Paddy's voice dead-on." -Boston Globe "A gloriously visceral style. . . . Mina excels at narrative and social commentary." -Newsday

„Sie sollen für mich einen Menschen töten. Wenn Sie versagen, stirbt Ihre Tochter. Wenn Sie die Polizei anrufen, stirbt Ihre Tochter. Wenn Sie mit jemandem über unsere Gespräche sprechen, stirbt Ihre Tochter. Wenn Sie die Klinik verlassen, stirbt Ihre Tochter. War das klar genug?“ Abends um acht Uhr tritt der Münchner Anästhesist Dr. Reinhard Gehr eine Nachtschicht an, die keine Aufregungen verheißt. Doch kurz nach Dienstbeginn erhält er einen Anruf. Ein Fremder, der sich Charon nennt, verlangt von Gehr, einen Patienten zu ermorden. Andernfalls würde Charon Gehrs Tochter töten. Gehr erkennt rasch, dass Charons Drohung ernst gemeint ist. Verzweifelt versucht er, Sarahs Leben zu retten, ohne selbst zum Mörder zu werden. Doch kann es im Operationssaal moralisch vertretbare Todesfälle geben? Gehr beginnt, in allen Patienten mögliche Opfer zu sehen und zieht durch sein seltsames Verhalten das Misstrauen der Kollegen auf sich. Dem Arzt bleibt nicht viel Zeit, um Leben gegen Leben abzuwägen. Nur zehn Stunden. Wie schon in seinem erfolgreichen Debütkrimi „Anästhesie“ reißt der Anästhesist Martin Kleen seine Leser mit packenden OP-Szenen, unglaublichem Insiderwissen und literarischer Hochspannung in einen atemberaubenden Strudel.

Diese Ausgabe von "Die toten Augen von London" wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Zur Inhalt: Inspektor Larry Holt von Scotland Yard glaubt nicht mehr an einen Unfall, als die Polizei nach einer Nebelnacht zum wiederholten Male einen alten Mann aus der Themse fischt. Seine Vermutung, dass die "toten Augen von London" - eine Verbrecherbande blinder Hausierer - wieder aktiv sind, scheint sich diesmal eindeutig zu bestätigen. Zusammen mit seinem Assistenten Sunny Harvey und der ehemaligen Blindenpflegerin Nora Ward macht sich Holt auf die Suche nach dem einstigen Kopf der Bande, dem "blinden Jack". Dabei geraten sie nicht nur in ein düsteres Blindenheim unter der Leitung von Reverend Dearborn, sondern auch an den zunächst ehrenwert erscheinenden Rechtsanwalt Stephen Judd, bei dem alle Ermordeten versichert waren. Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) war ein englischer Schriftsteller, Drehbuchautor, Regisseur, Journalist und Dramatiker. Wallace gehört zu den erfolgreichsten englischsprachigen Kriminalschriftstellern.

Instant New York Times Bestseller Best of 2017 - included on best-of lists by the New York Times, NPR, Barnes & Noble, Publisher's Weekly, LitHub, BookPage, Booklist, TheRealBookSpy.com, the Financial Times (UK) and the Daily Mail (UK) “The Force is mesmerizing, a triumph. Think The Godfather, only with cops. It’s that good.” — Stephen King The acclaimed, award-winning, bestselling author of The Cartel—voted one of the Best Books of the Year by more than sixty publications, including the New York Times—makes his William Morrow debut with a cinematic epic as explosive, powerful, and unforgettable as Mystic River and The Wire. Our ends know our beginnings, but the reverse isn’t true . . . All Denny Malone wants is to be a good cop. He is “the King of Manhattan North,” a, highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant and the real leader of “Da Force.” Malone and his crew are the smartest, the toughest, the quickest, the bravest, and the baddest, an elite special unit given unrestricted authority to wage war on gangs, drugs and guns. Every day and every night for the eighteen years he’s spent on the Job, Malone has served on the front lines, witnessing the hurt, the dead, the victims, the perps. He’s done whatever it takes to serve and protect in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean—including Malone himself. What only a few know is that Denny Malone is dirty: he and his partners have stolen millions of dollars in drugs and cash in the wake of the biggest heroin bust in the city’s history. Now Malone is caught in a trap and being squeezed by the Feds, and he must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the Job, his family, and the woman he loves, trying to survive, body and soul, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all. Based on years of research inside the NYPD, this is the great cop novel of our time and a book only Don Winslow could write: a haunting and heartbreaking story of greed and violence, inequality and race, crime and injustice, retribution and redemption that reveals the seemingly insurmountable tensions between the police and the diverse citizens they serve. A searing portrait of a city and a courageous, heroic, and deeply flawed man who stands at the edge of its abyss, The Force is a masterpiece of urban living full of shocking and surprising twists, leavened by flashes of dark humor, a morally complex and utterly riveting dissection of modern American society and the controversial issues confronting and dividing us today.

Police Detective Pia Kirchhoff is about to leave on her long-delayed honeymoon when she receives a phone call from police headquarters: An elderly woman has been shot and killed while walking her dog. Neither her grieving daughter nor any of her acquaintances have an explanation for the horrifying murder. Ingeborg Rohlehder was well-liked and a generous, loving woman. A short while later, another murder is committed and the modus operandi is eerily similar — a woman is executed by a precisely aimed bullet to the head that smashes through her kitchen window while she is baking cookies . . . and in both cases the same weapon fired the shot from a distance only a trained sniper could manage. Two more murders follow in short order. None of the victims had enemies and no one knows why they were singled out. As fear of the Taunus Sniper grows among the local residents, the pressure rises on Detective Kirchhoff. She and her partner, Oliver von Bodenstein, search feverishly for a suspect who appears to murder at will, but soon realize that “The Judge,” as the sniper calls himself, seems to have a mission—a mission that has not reached its conclusion yet. As the investigation progresses, the police officers uncover a human tragedy that will shake them to the core. I am Your Judge is tightly plotted, and delivers surprise twists at every turn with a story that is ripped from the headlines.
