PRESSE- UND LESERSTIMMEN "Der Mörder Dietrich Hellenbroich erinnert in seiner schaurigen Sammelwut an den Grenouille, die Hauptfigur aus Patrick Süskinds Bestseller „Das Parfum“. Die den Roman durchziehende Symbolik wiederum ähnelt den Dan Brown-Bestsellern." (WZ, Westdeutsche Zeitung) "Der fesselnde Krimi macht Lust auf mehr von der Autorin - und auf einen Besuch in dem mittelalterlichen Ort." (FÜR SIE) Beschreibung "Der Puzzlemörder von Zons" „Catherine Shepherd gelingt es in ihrem ersten Thriller meisterhaft, die Begegnung zwischen Historie und Gegenwart zu inszenieren. Ein packendes Werk, von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute!“ Zons 1495: Eine junge Frau wird geschändet und verstümmelt aufgefunden. Offensichtlich war sie Opfer des Rituals eines perversen Mörders geworden. Eigentlich ist das kleine mittelalterliche Städtchen Zons, das damals wie heute genau zwischen Düsseldorf und Köln am Rhein liegt, immer besonders friedlich gewesen. Doch seitdem der Kölner Erzbischof Friedrich von Saarwerden dem Städtchen die Zollrechte verliehen hatte, tauchte immer mehr kriminelles Gesindel auf. Bastian Mühlenberg von der Zonser Stadtwache ist geschockt von der Brutalität des Mörders und verfolgt seine Spur – nicht ahnend, dass auch er bereits in den Fokus des Puzzlemörders geraten ist... Gegenwart: Die Journalismus-Studentin Emily kann ihr Glück kaum fassen! Sie darf eine ganze Artikelserie über die historischen Zonser Morde schreiben. Doch mit Beginn ihrer Reportage scheint der mittelalterliche Puzzlemörder von Zons wieder lebendig zu werden, als eine brutal zugerichtete Frauenleiche in Zons aufgefunden wird. Kriminalkommissar Oliver Bergmann nimmt die Ermittlungen auf. Erst viel zu spät erkennt er den Zusammenhang zur Vergangenheit. Verzweifelt versucht er die Puzzleteile des Mörders zusammenzufügen, doch der Täter ist immer einen Schritt voraus... Beschreibung "Erntezeit" (vorheriger Titel: "Der Sichelmörder von Zons") „In ihrem zweiten Roman lässt die Autorin Catherine Shepherd erneut Vergangenheit und Gegenwart zu einem atemberaubenden Thriller verschmelzen. Shepherd führt Sie auf eine unglaublich spannende Reise!“ Zons 1496: Während Bastian Mühlenberg von der Zonser Stadtwache auf der Spur eines uralten Schatzes ist, den der Erzbischof von Saarwerden bei Errichtung der Stadtmauern tief unter der Erde von Zons verborgen hat, treibt ein brutaler Mörder mit einer goldenen Sichel sein blutiges Spiel mit seinen Opfern. Scheinbar wahllos verschwinden „unbescholtene“ Bürger und alles was von ihnen übrig bleibt, sind ihre toten Zungen, die sichtbaren Zeichen ihrer Sünden. Drei silberne Schlüssel, behütet von Pfarrer Johannes und der St. Sebastianus-Schützenbruderschaft, führen Bastian in ein verschlungenes Labyrinth unterhalb von Zons, wo ein düsteres Geheimnis auf ihn wartet... Gegenwart: Ein menschlicher Fußknochen wird in den Rheinauen von Zons gefunden. Kommissar Oliver Bergmann kann zunächst keine Leiche finden. Doch dann überschlagen sich die Ereignisse. Oliver verfängt sich in einem schier undurchdringbaren Netz aus Verdächtigen und Vermissten. Die nagelneue Salzsäureanlage im Chemiepark Dormagen gerät ebenso in sein Visier wie geldsüchtige Banker, eine goldene Mordwaffe und Gandhis „sieben Todsünden der Moderne“. Als die Journalismus-Studentin Emily und ihre beste Freundin Anna in ernsthafter Gefahr schweben, erkennt Oliver verzweifelt, dass ihm nicht mehr viel Zeit bleibt... Beschreibung "Kalter Zwilling" Der dritte Bestseller-Thriller von Catherine Shepherd führt Sie in die Tiefen menschlicher Abgründe. Eine weitere Begegnung von Vergangenheit und Gegenwart, die Sie nicht vergessen werden: Zons 1496: Ein schrecklicher Fluch beendet Elisas junges Leben, noch bevor sie ihre neugeborenen Zwillingssöhne in den Armen halten kann. Bastian Mühlenberg von der Zonser Stadtwache ahnt zunächst nichts vom düsteren Familiengeheimnis, das auf den Brüdern lastet. Als der Schmied mit gefälschten Goldgulden zerstückelt vor der Stadtmauer gefunden und das friedliche Städtchen von einer neuen Mordserie erschüttert wird, nimmt Bastian Mühlenberg die Spur des Mörders auf. Stück für Stück wird er in eine unheilvolle Verschwörung hineingezogen, die das Leben seiner Familie bedroht… Gegenwart: Der grausame Mord an einer Prostituierten führt Kommissar Oliver Bergmann zu seinem dritten großen Fall nach Zons. Offensichtlich ist der Mörder ein kaltblütiger Psychopath, der ein perverses Machtspiel mit seinen Opfern treibt. Währenddessen schreibt Journalismus-Studentin Emily mit Hilfe von Professor Morgenstern, dem Leiter einer psychiatrischen Klinik vor den Toren von Zons, eine Reportage über die menschlichen Abgründe psychopathischer Persönlichkeiten. Als ein Universitätsprofessor aus Köln, keine dreißig Kilometer von Zons entfernt, auf martialische Weise ermordet wird, meint Oliver Bergmann ein Muster aus der Vergangenheit zu erkennen. Ein über fünfhundert Jahre alter Fluch scheint zu neuem Leben erwacht... Beschreibung "Auf den Flügeln der Angst" "Shepherd's vierter Thriller führt Sie auf einen trügerischen Pfad, auf dem nichts so ist, wie es scheint. Eine weitere Begegnung von Vergangenheit und Gegenwart, die Sie nicht mehr loslassen wird ..." Zons 1497: Bastian Mühlenberg von der Zonser Stadtwache steht vor einem Rätsel. Am Morgen nach dem Geburtstagsfest von Pfarrer Johannes schwimmt eine tote Frau im Burggraben. Vom Täter fehlt jede Spur. Als kurz darauf vor den Stadttoren von Zons ein Bote brutal ermordet wird, beginnt eine atemlose Jagd. Bastian entdeckt ein Geheimnis hinter den Steinen der Stadtmauer. Eine geheimnisvolle dunkle Flüssigkeit führt ihn auf eine gefährliche Reise, denn auch der Mörder ist auf der Jagd nach dem teuflischen Elixier ... Gegenwart: Die alleinerziehende junge Mutter Saskia nimmt an einer klinischen Studie teil. Doch statt der erhofften Befreiung von ihren Ängsten fühlt sie sich von Tag zu Tag schlechter und kann am Ende nicht mehr zwischen Wahn und Wirklichkeit unterscheiden. Während Saskia von unerklärlichen, grausamen Bildern verfolgt wird, ermittelt Kommissar Oliver Bergmann in einer neuen Mordserie. Ein Stadtrat wird in seiner Zonser Wohnung ertränkt, wenig später führt ein Anruf die Polizei zu einer weiteren Leiche. Die einzige Verbindung zwischen den Opfern ist eine seltene Droge in ihrem Blut. Obwohl alles auf ein männliches Täterprofil hindeutet, hat Oliver starke Zweifel. Erst im letzten Moment erkennt er den wahren Zusammenhang, der ihn zurück ins Mittelalter führt ... HINWEIS: Dieser Sammelband ist nur für kurze Zeit erhältlich.

New York Times bestselling author Linda Castillo delivers an electrifying thriller in which Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must confront a dark evil to solve the mysterious murders of an entire Amish family. The Plank family moved from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to join the small Amish community of Painters Mill less than a year ago and seemed the model of the Plain Life—until on a cold October night, the entire family of seven was found slaughtered on their farm. Police Chief Kate Burkholder and her small force have few clues, no motive, and no suspect. Formerly Amish herself, Kate is no stranger to the secrets the Amish keep from the English—and each other—but this crime is horribly out of the ordinary. State agent John Tomasetti arrives on the scene to assist. He and Kate worked together on a previous case during which they began a volatile relationship. They soon realize the disturbing details of this case will test their emotional limits and force them to face demons from their own troubled pasts—and for Kate, a personal connection that is particularly hard to bear. When she discovers a diary that belonged to one of the teenaged daughters, Kate is shocked to learn the girl kept some very dark secrets and may have been living a lurid double life. Who is the charismatic stranger who stole the young Amish girl's heart? Could the brother—a man with a violent past, rejected and shunned by his family and the Amish community, have come to seek out revenge? As Kate's outrage grows so does her resolve to find the killer and bring him to justice—even if it means putting herself in the line of fire. Topping her own bestselling debut, Linda Castillo once again immerses us in the world of the Amish with a chilling story that is both a fast-paced thriller and intriguing psychological puzzle.

24 year old Lissette Delgado was beaten, raped and then strangled with a towel. Marijuana is found in her apartment and her wardrobe is suspiciously beyond the means of a high school teacher. Lieutenant Conde is pressured by 'the highest authority' to conclude this investigation quickly when chance leads him into the arms of a beautiful redhead. This is a Havana of crumbling, grand buildings, secrets hidden behind faded doors and corruption. This is as much a eulogy for Cuba, its life of sex, music and great friendships as it is a story of a murder investigation.
