A luxury cruise. A desert island. A deadly killer. Breath-taking suspense and vivid moments of terror in the gripping horror novel, Island, by Richard Laymon. Perfect for fans of Joe Hill and Dean Koontz. 'Shocking stuff. Island is hard-written, blunt and a thriller reader's treat. Laymon enthrals you with no-holds-barred material' - Ipswich Evening Star When Rupert Conway set out on a cruise with seven other people, he planned to swim a little, get some sun and relax. He certainly didn't plan to get shipwrecked. But after the yacht blew up, that's what happened - he and his shipmates were stranded on a deserted island. Luckily for them, the island has plenty of fresh water and enough food to last until they get rescued. And luckily for Rupert, most of his fellow castaways are attractive women. But that's where his luck ran out - because the castaways aren't alone on the island. In the dense jungle beyond the beach there's a maniac on the loose, a killer with a murderous heart, a clever mind and a taste for blood. He doesn't like his new neighbours and he plans to slaughter them all... one by one. What readers are saying about Island: 'His story-telling ability is excellent with characters and shockers to fulfil any reader's desires... it is not long before the sands of this lovely beach are soaked blood red! At one point I remember literally jumping with shock' 'Island blew me away. Right from the very first sentence to the climactic ending, this book is very hard to put down' 'A must read, even if just for the last line'

Nach der Explosion ihrer Jacht finden sich acht junge Urlauber auf einer einsamen Südseeinsel wieder, weitab von jeder Zivilisation. Was als Abenteuer beginnt – früher oder später wird sie ja bestimmt jemand retten, denken sie –, entwickelt sich jedoch zu einem Albtraum, aus dem es kein Entrinnen zu geben scheint: als nämlich einer von ihnen auf bestialische Art und Weise ermordet wird und sich herausstellt, dass die Explosion der Jacht kein Unfall war ... Ein nervenzerreißendes Katz-und-Maus-Spiel von Richard Laymon, einem der meistverkauften Horror- und Thriller-Autoren unserer Zeit.

From the man who made TV criticism an entertainment in its own right comes Visions Before Midnight, a selection from the column hundreds of thousands of devoted fans would turn to first thing on a Sunday morning. Clive James's comic brilliance is displayed here, from the 1972 Olympics (But your paradigm no-no commentary can't be made up of fluffs alone. It needs flannel in lengthy widths, and it's here that Harry and Alan come through like a whole warehouse full of pyjamas) to the 1976 Olympics ('Jenkins has a lot to do' was a new way of saying that our man, of whom we had such high hopes, was not going to pull out the big one). In between we have 'War and Peace' (Tolstoy makes television history), the Royal Wedding (Dimbling suavely, Tom Fleming introduced the scene), the Winter Olympics (unintelligibuhl), the Eurovision Song Contest (The Hook of their song lasted a long time in the mind, like a kick in the knee. You could practically hear the Koreans singing it. 'Waterloo . . .' ), and much more.

Star Reviews for the Rachel Markham Mystery Series on Amazon. 5.0 out of 5 stars A highly intelligent and fun game of Clue, April 16, 2015 By TFLReader I just love a good mystery and author PB Kolleri has put together a great mystery series here with her "Rachel Markham Mystery Series." I love British characters and stories, and particularly ones that are fast-paced and keep me guessing until the end. This was one of those for sure. If you are an Agatha Christie fan or just love a good mystery, don't pass up this engaging series. 5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Rachel Markham series, April 24, 2014 By Doreen Farley I love mysteries post world war 2! I enjoyed the character of Rachel Markham very much. A delightful and cozy read. Did it again! July 4, 2014 By Stayce Einnyen Once again P.B. has given us a lovely book. All I can say that is negative about the story, is I wish they were longer. I hope we get to see loads more of Rachel and Jeremy. Thank you for giving us these delightful books. By Ellen Grosson February 27, 2015 A little mystery filled with English characters and foibles. Light easy reading, something good for a long cold night. A book reminiscent of Agatha Christie, cozy and comfortable like a warm fire and a cup of coffee. Good enough to entertain a Christie fan!, April 23, 2013 By Walter Burgess Lots of good characters and entertaining plot. Truly a who done it with a surprise at the end and fun to boot! 5.0 out of 5 stars A Cozy And Fun Read, February 19, 2013 By L.I. LINDA (LI NY) This book reads like a P.B.S. television mystery series. I am an Anglophile and enjoyed every page. I highly recommend it to lovers of all things British. 5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, August 20, 2013 By Jessica Strong This is such a well written story. It truly is a wonderful book and I am sure that it is more than comparable to Agatha Christie. The time period is well researched and is informative of the time just after the war in England. I look forward to the next in the series. Good story! February 20, 2015 By E. Donahue Good story, also just finished "Murder at Ravenrock" and it is equally as good. Just enough personal character information without being a biography as many turn out to be. Definitely recommend. If there is another in the series, I will surely read it also. The first seven books in the series, are now available to readers exclusively on Amazon.

Eigentlich ist es ein ganz normaler Tag im August des Jahres 1963: Der kleine Ort Grandville ächzt unter der Sommerhitze, während zugleich eifrig Vorbereitungen für die große »Vampirshow« – eine Art Dracula-Musical – getroffen werden, die am Abend stattfinden soll. Doch es ist der Tag, der das Leben dreier Jugendlicher für immer verändern wird. Denn obwohl sie eigentlich zu jung sind, scheuen sie keine Mühen, um die Show zu sehen. Ein fataler Fehler, wie sich nur allzu bald herausstellt ...

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
