The Spider #2, November 1933: The Wheel of Deat...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mysterious death, suicide, and madness took uncanny toll of New York´s most prominent citizens. Only the Spider sensed the presence of the criminal genius whose tentacles were strangling the city - and the Spider was next on the crime monster´s death list! Here is the second and final Spider novel penned by the mysterious R.T.M. Scott. To this day, over 80 years later, the mystery of Scott´s departure remains unsolved. R.T.M. Scott was a famous byline in the 1920s and ´30s, the author of a series of hardcover novels featuring sophisticated detective Aurelius Smith and his Hindu aide, Langa Doonh. They were the template for Richard Wentworth and Ram Singh. But there were two R.T.M. Scotts, father and son. And the son worked for Popular Publications under the name Maitland Scott! So, which Scott initiated the Spider series? One of the more intriguing theories posits that R.T.M. Scott Senior penned The Spider Strikes and, having kicked off the series in grand style, handed it off to his son, who was 24 at that time. Whatever the case was, neither man was likely up to the job of writing a monthly pulp novel. Enter Norvell Page. The Wheel of Death is a crime story set in New York City and revolves around a strange after-hours nightclub catering to the elite. Donning the disguise of a hardened gangster, Dick Wentworth, alias the Spider, penetrates this place, and allies himself with Molly Dennis, a young woman whose father sits on Death Row, awaiting execution for a crime he may not have committed. What is the secret of Grogan´s Restaurant? Can he unravel a web of blackmail without revealing that Richard Wentworth is secretly the Spider? Nick Santa Maria reads this exciting suspense story of murder, mayhem, and mystery that perfectly evokes 1933 Manhattan. Originally published in The Spider magazine, November 1933. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Santa Maria. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/047698/bk_acx0_047698_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Selector of Souls begins with a scene that is terrifying, harrowing and yet strangely tender: we´re in the mid ranges of the Himalayas as a young woman gives birth to her third child with the help of her mother, Damini. The birth brings no joy, just a horrible accounting, and the act that follows - the huge sacrifice made by Damini out of love of her daughter - haunts the novel. In Shauna Singh Baldwin´s enthralling novel, two fascinating, strong-willed women must deal with the relentless logic forced upon them by survival: Damini, a Hindu midwife, and Anu, who flees an abusive marriage for the sanctuary of the Catholic church. When Sister Anu comes to Damini´s home village to open a clinic, their paths cross, and each are certain they are doing what´s best for women. What do health, justice, education and equality mean for women when India is marching toward prosperity, growth and becoming a nuclear power? If the baby girls and women around them are to survive, Damini and Anu must find creative ways to break with tradition and help this community change from within. 1. Language: English.

Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you´d expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups: Ken and Clive, brutal ex-cops who are also a couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world - all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes. Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself in over his head with increasingly bizarre and complex cases - and the visions that he´s been having of Hindu gods aren´t helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if the things he´s seeing are a delusion - or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognised shaman of the modern world.... 1. Language: English.

The first in a trilogy of whip-smart novels - currently in development as a TV series set to star Sendhil Ramamurthy (NBC´s Heroes and Heroes Reborn) - about a destructive private investigator and his eccentric coworkers, who handle cases so high-profile that they never make the headlines. Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you´d expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups: Ken and Clive, a pair of brutal ex-cops who are also a gay couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian immigrant family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world - all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes. Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself in over his head with increasingly gonzo and complex cases - and the recent visions that he´s been having of Hindu gods aren´t helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if the things he´s seeing are a delusion - or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognized shaman of the modern world. 1. Language: English.
