2028: ...and Australia has gone to hell in a ha...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

2028. Prime Minister Fitzwilliams' instincts tell him it's time to call a snap election. His cabinet team is adequate (just), the howling protests of the doctors after the GP changes has finally died down and, best of all, the Australian Greens are in receivership. So what could possibly go wrong?  The PM is prepared for everything until he finds himself facing what he least expected - an actual opposition. How do you deal with a party that doesn't play by the rules, protests in the nude, sends mail by carrier pigeon and has a list of candidates all called Ned Ludd?  Welcome to the Australia of 2028, where parking meters double as poker machines, radio shock jocks have been automated, the Communist Party of China has turned itself into a multinational corporation and ASIO's glory days are so far over that it's resorting to surveillance of a Charles Dickens reading group.   Outrageous, sharp and wickedly funny, 2028 takes us into the near future, where the not very good ideas around today have become 10 years worse. 1.

A Killing at Ball's Bluff: The Harrison Raines ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Harrison Raines is caught in no-man's-land - and suspected of murder. The messenger finds Harrison Raines in one of the finest gambling halls in Washington. As usual, Raines is losing. Union intelligence demands his presence immediately - it's a matter that could affect the outcome of the Civil War - but Raines delays. He's holding four eights, and as a Southern dandy who renounced his family to serve the Union government as a secret agent, Raines can't resist a bet. But as soon as he finishes this hand of poker, Raines will be gambling with more than cards - he'll be wagering his life. Abraham Lincoln is a close friend of Colonel Baker, and he orders Raines to guard the colonel on the battlefield. But in the chaos of Ball's Bluff, Baker refuses to take cover from enemy fire. When Baker is cut down by a Confederate riding a white horse, Raines is a prime suspect in the murder and must clear his name or risk being a fugitive from both sides of the Civil War. A Killing at Ball's Bluff is the second book in the Harrison Raines Civil War Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series in any order. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Stillwell.

Death on the Aegean Queen: A Dotsy Lamb Travel ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

George Gaskill, a car salesman from Indiana, goes missing from the stern deck of the Aegean Queen, leaving only a pool of blood and a strange note behind. Ollie Osgood, the husband of Dotsy Lamb's best friend Lettie, is the last person to have seen him and one of three men who lost a bundle to George in a Texas Hold'em poker game. Then the ship's photographer turns up murdered on the beautiful island of Mykonos. Dotsy wants only to unwind and to renew her promising relationship with Marco Quattrocchi, the Carabinieri captain she met in Italy three years ago, but since Ollie is the prime suspect in George's disappearance and Marco is embroiled in the photographer's murder, she can't. The Aegean Queen is a ship with a theme - archaeology. Dotsy strikes up a friendship with the ship's guest lecturer, famous archaeologist, Dr. Luc Girard, and introduces him to the ship's klutziest dancer, Sophie Antonakos. With the help of Lettie Osgood's amazing powers of observation, Dotsy, Sophie, and Luc discover antiquities in the ship's display cases that have been looted from museums or smuggled from their homelands. The trails of murder and theft converge on the island of Crete, where Dotsy finds herself dodging bullets from the gun of a man she doesn't even know. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Karen Krause.

Murder on the Aisle , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 300min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Peeps takes movie reviewing to new heights of viciousness. On this prime-time TV show, two caustic critics look at the hits and misses among the new movies, trading wits, insults - even punches. But even a series with high riatings like Peeps can stare at cancellation - not by the networks, but by murder. Because Dunphy has just been found with a knife in his back in the dressing room of Tobin, his co-host and sparring partner. The cops' script says Tobin - who'd secretly shared the affections of Dunphy's wife and brawled on air with Dunphy the night before - has the motivation for the part of star suspect. But for Tobin, the accusation is hardly entertaining, and he sets out to find the real killer in the cast.
