Last week I suddenly ended up in a beautiful bookstore in town and I happened to buy a book I’ve been eyeing for the longest time. Besides that one, I also received some review ecopies!
Liar Liar by M.J. Arlidge
In the dead of night, three raging fires light up the city skies. It’s more than a tragic coincidence. For DI Helen Grace the flames announce the arrival of an evil she has never encountered before.
Because this is no firestarter seeking sick thrills, but something more chilling: a series of careful, calculating acts of murder.
But why were the victims chosen? What’s driving the killer? And who will be next?
A powder keg of fear, suspicion and dread has been laid. Now all it needs is a spark to set it off . . .
Atom Bomb to Santa Claus: What have the Americans ever done for us? by Trevor Homer
A fascinating celebration of America’s greatest innovators and inventions.
Three cheers for the ingenious, inventive, United States of America!
From the kitchen to the office to outer space, America has been at the forefront of the advances of the human race for the last two centuries. It’s given birth to more new products, devices, medicines, leisure pursuits, sports, musical genres, and vehicles than any other country or people ancient or modern. More Nobel prize winners come from these shores than the next five countries combined.
Atom Bomb to Santa Claus celebrates the country’s pioneering drive by describing some of its greatest innovations and some of its greatest – and most surprising – inventors. It challenges the imagination to know that the same country that gave the world the artificial heart and e-mail, also originated sliced bread and Chinese fortune cookies. Guaranteed to entertain and enlighten, Atom Bomb to Santa Claus is an amazing chronicle of some of America’s most important and imaginative creations.
City of the Shrieking Tomb by Patrick A. Rogers
The city of Humayunpur, long ago the capital of a powerful dynasty of Central Asian conquerors, lies all but forgotten in a dusty, overlooked, corner of South India. Within its crumbling medieval walls, vast tombs and ruined palaces tower above a dense warren of small houses and narrow streets. Once a city of tremendous wealth and influence, Humayunpur has faded into impoverished obscurity.
It’s a place with dark secrets, where the locals whisper stories of spirits, demons, and mad sorcerers.
Now, a travel photographer from abroad finds himself stranded in the lost city. All around him are the mute remains of its glorious, bloody, past. As he peels back, layer by layer, the mysteries of Humayunpur’s decline and fall, he discovers the ruins hide far more than just forgotten history. Everything that he thought he knew about the world is turned on its head.
He finds that something lives still in the ancient tombs of Humayunpur.
