A 2018 YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults FinalistThe exciting true story of the captaincy, wreck, and discovery of the Whydah - the only pirate ship ever found - and the incredible mysteries it revealed.The 1650s to the 1730s marked the golden age of piracy, when fearsome pirates like Blackbeard ruled the waves, seeking not only treasure but also large and fast ships to carry it. The Whydah was just such a ship, built to ply the Triangular Trade route, which it did until one of the greediest pirates of all, Black Sam Bellamy, commandeered it. Filling the ship to capacity with treasure, Bellamy hoped to retire with his bounty - but in 1717 the ship sank in a storm off Cape Cod. For more than two hundred years, the wreck of the Whydah (and the riches that went down with it) eluded treasure seekers, until the ship was finally found in 1984 by marine archaeologists. The artifacts brought up from the ocean floor are priceless, both in value and in the picture they reveal of life in that much-mythologized era, changing much of what we know about pirates. 1.

London, 1886: When a stranger with peculiar head injuries is admitted to Bethlem Asylum, the doctors are confounded by his permanent inability to recover his memory. Without any form of identity and suffering bizarre nightmares, the stranger soon finds out that he is somehow linked to a deceased nobleman who bequeaths him a farm in the Southern African Cape Colonies. After an attempt is made on his life by a clandestine order of assassins, he flees to Cape Town. Before long, his presence in the Cape Colonies is questioned, even feared, for the farm he had inherited has a sinister reputation already. By association, he is quickly blamed for an outbreak of brutal serial murders of which his memory loss does not absolve him. He meets Eleonora Rudd, daughter of De Beers magnate Charles Dunnell Rudd, and a reluctant romance ensues. Unfortunately, the corrupt Cape Town Police Chief and Eleonora´s fiancé uses his influence to turn the Cape Town people against the stranger who introduces himself as Poe. Apart from Eleonora and a local gravedigger called Rowlf as allies, Poe is pursued as suspect. But when Eleonora is taken by the killer, Poe and Rowlf are forced to unearth the malevolent nature of the man who lurks in Cape Town, killing women of all creeds with bestial cruelty. In order to save his beloved, Poe races against time and evidence to track down her captor and hopefully find her still alive. But what they discover is something worse than the fate of death. 1.

The Coming of the Terror: Spider #36, September...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Stripped of his wealth, cut off from his faithful helpers, Richard Wentworth, known and feared throughout the Underworld as the avenging Spider, struggles with his most powerful and wily foe - the Man who came out of the East! With Wentworth´s best friend, Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick framed for murder; with the entire city capitulating before that new and cruelly cunning menace from the Orient, the Spider himself seems doomed to die on the torture racks of the Far East! One man against more evil than anyone could ever imagine, enemies feared by any normal man. The Spider knew that, but it did not check the wild impulse to laughter that squeezed his lungs. It was no wonder that men call the Spider mad! Once, in a typical blood-and-screaming-bullets carnage of urban combat, Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick ticked off a long list of suspects. Wentworth blurted out this self-revealing truth. ´´I´m suspicious of everyone,´´ he admitted, ´´even of myself sometimes.´´ And well he should be. For Richard Wentworth was an undiagnosed manic-depressive - if not paranoid schizophrenic - subject to violent mood swings, climbing to unutterable heights of exultation in one scene, then crashing into the blackest depths of despair the next. When the Spider-madness came over him, he might pick up his treasured Stradivarius violin and launch into a night-long serenade to soul-searching. Or, he might putty up his face, don black hat and cape, go out Spidering.... Nick Santa Maria brings the action to vibrant life, narrating with a fever-pitch intensity. ´´The Coming of the Terror´´ originally published in The Spider magazine, September 1936. 1.

Misdirection: Lucas Norton , Hörbuch, Digital, ...

Misdirection is the first novel in a series of international crime thrillers by Martin Link. High-tech and action packed, this may seem like the stuff of science fiction; however, the series features amazing new technology that actually exist in the world today. When we first encounter the series´ narrator, Lucas Norton, he´s riding his bicycle through a sleeting rain, heading to his office in the British Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ) complex in Cheltenham, England. Meet the new James Bond. He has all the high-tech toys Britain´s MI5 security service has developed at his disposal, but he´s just a regular guy dealing with a promotion and marital problems, in addition to one hell of a caper. Lucas´s first assignment at MI5 is to chase down a lead that consists of an e-mail containing four high-level keywords, a barely-intelligible phone call made from the same smartphone from which the e-mail was sent, and a cryptic numerical text. From this limited amount of information, the team quickly surmises that, rather than an act of terror, as was first feared, this is a high-target heist, organized by a very sophisticated operation, and it is already in motion. The question is, where? With each clever twist and turn of the story line, you will be trying to solve the case before Lucas and some of the world´s best security experts do, as they chase down a daring plot to make off with $48 million-right under their noses. Despite all their technology and brainpower, MI5 is always one step behind the perpetrators. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris MacDonnell.

´´Remarkable . . . Scott Lynch´s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.´´-The Times (London) An orphan´s life is harsh-and often short-in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld´s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game-or die trying. Praise for The Lies of Locke Lamora ´´Fresh, original, and engrossing . . . gorgeously realized.´´-George R. R. Martin ´´Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven´t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.´´-Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind ´´A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Locke´s wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.´´-The Seattle Times ´´A true genre bender, at home on almost any kind of fiction shelf . . . Lynch immediately establishes himself as a gifted and fearless storyteller, unafraid of comparisons to Silverberg and Jordan, not to mention David Liss and even Dickens.´´-Booklist (starred review) ´´High-octane fantasy . . . a great swashbuckling yarn of a novel.´´-Richard Morgan
