"Fleeing the mobsters he has double crossed, Harry Fabian runs through a virtual obstacle course of London's back streets and alleys during a night in which the shadows seem to grow darker with his every footstep. The night itself seems to be his stalker, its shadows enveloping him like a closing coffin lid."So begins "The Shadows of Film Noir," Brian W. Fairbanks' perceptive analysis of the genre, one of the highlights of a collection that also includes knowledgable profiles of film giants like John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Richard Widmark and even Elliott Gould, as well as a memorable lament for the movie palaces that have fallen victim to the multiplex in our fast food styled culture.THE LATE SHOW: WRITINGS ON FILM celebrates the glory days of cinema in witty prose from a writer with a "real talent for extracting the essence of a given subject and articulating it in a meaningful way."

Bob Woodward, die Ikone des investigativen Journalismus in den USA, hat alle amerikanischen Präsidenten aus nächster Nähe beobachtet. Nun nimmt er sich den derzeitigen Präsidenten vor und enthüllt den erschütternden Zustand des Weißen Hauses unter Donald Trump. Woodward beschreibt, wie dieser Präsident Entscheidungen trifft, er berichtet von eskalierenden Debatten im Oval Office und in der Air Force One, dem volatilen Charakter Trumps und dessen Obsessionen und Komplexen. Woodwards Buch ist ein Dokument der Zeitgeschichte: Hunderte Stunden von Interviews mit direkt Beteiligten, Gesprächsprotokolle, Tagebücher, Notizen – auch von Trump selbst – bieten einen dramatischen Einblick in die Machtzentrale der westlichen Welt, in der vor allem eines herrscht: Furcht. Woodward ist das Porträt eines amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten gelungen, das es in dieser Genauigkeit noch nicht gegeben hat.

CRIME NEVER SLEEPS. 'CRIME BOOK OF THE YEAR' Daily Mail ONE OF AMAZON'S BEST MYSTERY/THRILLERS OF THE YEAR * * * * * Detective Renée Ballard works 'The Late Show', the notorious graveyard shift at the LAPD. It's thankless work for a once-promising detective, keeping strange hours in a twilight world of crime. Some nights are worse than others. And tonight is the worst yet. Two shocking cases, hours apart: a brutal assault, and a multiple murder with no suspects. Ballard knows it is always darkest before dawn. But what she doesn't know - yet - is how deep her investigation will take her into the dark heart of her city, the police department and her own past... The Late Show will keep you up all night: it's time to meet Detective Renée Ballard. * * * * * 'The new novel from America's greatest living crime writer is a gripping thrill ride that will entrance you and keep you reading until the small hours' Daily Express 'It has been more than ten years since Connelly, one of the world's greatest crime writers, last launched a major new character. Superb storytelling - this cements Connelly's place at the very top of the crime-writing tree' Daily Mail 'Classy and clever, with a tenacious heroine' Sunday Mirror 'Connelly achieves an enormous amount in these pages: he creates a new character who immediately leaps into life; and controls a complex, fast-paced plot full of surprises' Evening Standard 'The Late Show introduces a terrific female character: Detective Renée Ballard. The pacing is breathless ... Ballard has astonishing resourcefulness and bravery - she is complicated and driven' New York Times 'Although the usual Connelly fingerprints are in evidence here - the real achievement is the creation of his tenacious heroine, Ballard' Guardian 'Ballard is significantly more than a Bosch replacement or clone - an absorbing character on her own terms. Connelly has created yet another potentially iconic tarnished knight of those perennially mean streets' Irish Times 'A characteristically complex tale of murder and police corruption' Mail on Sunday (Thriller of the Week) 'First there was Detective Harry Bosch, then Lincoln lawyer Mickey Haller, and now comes Renee Ballard, ace thriller writer Michael Connelly's first new protagonist in 10 years.

It seemed Norte del Sur would be swept away like the shifting sands of the South-Western Arizona desert, burying the once legendary border town forever. Only old Sid still believes the once thriving tourist destination will come back to life while the other old folks simple wait for the inevitable end, burying their lives in the black and white images of Hollywood westerns on the old TV set in the Pass Time Restaurant and Tourist lodging. But Waco has another idea. After he accidentally kills his grandmother's cow; the only live stock they owned that made it worthwhile calling their small spread a ranch, the handsome young Waco finds his grandmother dead. It was not unexpected. After all, she was nearly a hundred. Waco, grandson of the legendary Sheriff Lemuel Merkens, hatches a plan to bring the town back to life. And what better way to grab the headlines than a resurgence of the Wild West with its bold highwaymen and wild Indians. With his Grandfather's old six shooter Waco sets to his task, soon joined by Joe, the Indian boy from the reservation, and Sarah, the only other resident of Norte del Sur under sixty-five years old. Each has their own motivation: Waco to bring prosperity back to the town his grandfather made famous; Joe, to wreck revenge on the "white man," and Sarah, whose feelings for Waco are becoming more than sisterly. They are joined by the boy Jesus, who lives across the border with his older sister, Maria, in the small Mexican border town, also called Norte del Sur, and known only because the famous Pancho Villa once stopped at Mama Lo's Cantina. As the fame of Norte del Sur grows with every more daring holdup, the law begins closing in on the youthful gang. Norte del Sur is a coming of age tale of heroism, youthful romance and daring adventure that leads to a dramatic show down with a wild chase through the Southern Mexican desert and a shoot out at the Pass Time that comes together in a surprising conclusion.

Eine Ikone der modernen Kriminalliteratur: Der 20. Fall für Detective Harry Bosch - von Amerikas Top-Thriller-Autor Michael Connelly Detective Harry Bosch ist in Rente gegangen und nicht mehr beim Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), aber sein Halbbruder, der Anwalt Mickey Haller, braucht die Hilfe des erfahrenen Ermittlers. Eine Frau ist im Schlafzimmer ihres Hauses brutal ermordet worden, und alle Indizien deuten auf einen von Hallers Klienten, einen früheren Gangster, mittlerweile bürgerlicher Familienvater. Obwohl die Mordanklage wasserdicht scheint, hält Mickey sie für vorgeschoben. Offenbar soll seinem unschuldigen Klienten etwas angehängt werden. Zuerst will Bosch damit nichts zu tun haben, aber dann nimmt er sich der Sache an und betreibt mit der ihm eigenen Hartnäckigkeit Nachforschungen, um den Fall aufzuklären. Doch je näher er der Wahrheit kommt, umso mehr gerät er in das Visier des Täters ... »Der amtierende Herrscher des Polizei-Thrillers.« Kirkus Reviews über Michael Connelly
