The award-winning Julius Katz mysteries have delighted thousands of mystery fans since first appearing on the pages of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine in 2009, winning a Shamus, Derringer and two Ellery Queen´s Readers Choice Awards . ´Julius Katz´ introduced readers to Boston´s most brilliant, eccentric and possibly laziest detective, Julius Katz, as well as his sidekick, Archie, a tiny marvel of whiz-bang computer technology with the heart and soul of a hard-boiled PI. Now, in Julius Katz and Archie´s first full-length mystery, the stakes have never been higher when a famous Boston mystery writer, Kenneth Kingston, tells Julius he wants to find out who´s planning to kill him. The problem is almost everyone in Kingston´s life has good reason to want to kill him, and this case soon plunges Julius and Archie deep into the world of murder and publishing. ´´It´s a nifty change-of-pace for the usually hard-boiled Dave Zeltserman. Clever, sophisticated and witty, Julius Katz and Archie will thrill fans of Nero Wolfe...and readers who never heard of him! Zeltserman knows how to mix character, action, and plot and create a pitch-perfect, modern mystery. More, Sir! The sooner the better.´´ Paul Levine, author of Flesh & Bones Endorsed by the Nero Wolfe Society, Julius Katz and Archie might be the most enjoyable mystery you read this year!

The Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came ...

On January 12, 2010, the deadliest earthquake in the history of the Western Hemisphere struck the nation least prepared to handle one. Jonathan M. Katz, the only full-time American news correspondent in Haiti, was inside his house when it buckled along with hundreds of thousands of others. In this visceral first-hand account, Katz takes readers inside the terror of that day, the devastation visited on ordinary Haitians, and through the monumental--yet misbegotten--rescue effort that followed. More than half of American adults gave money for Haiti, part of a global response that reached $16.3 billion in pledges. But three years later the effort has foundered. Its most important promises--to rebuild safer cities, alleviate severe poverty, and strengthen Haiti to face future disasters--remain unfulfilled. How did so much generosity amount to so little? What went wrong? The Big Truck That Went By presents a hard hitting investigation into international aid, finding that the way wealthy countries give today makes poor countries seem irredeemably hopeless, while trapping millions in cycles of privation and catastrophe. Katz follows the money to uncover startling truths about how good intentions go wrong, and what can be done to make aid ´´smarter.´´ Reporting at the side of Bill Clinton, Wyclef Jean, Sean Penn, Haiti´s leaders and people, Katz also creates a complex, darkly funny, and unexpected portrait of one of the world´s most fascinating countries. The Big Truck That Went By is not only a definitive account of Haiti´s earthquake, but of the world we live in today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Davis, Jonathan M. Katz.

Jackie Lee Cochran - Rockabilly Legend (LP)
€ 17.95

zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(Magnum Force) 12 Titel, aufgenommen für Ronny Weiser´s Rollin´ Rock Label! Hier ist Jackie Lee Cochrans lang ersehntes zweites Album von Rollin´ Rock Records´. Alle Songs (außer´I Love You A Thousand Ways´) sind Eigenkompositionen von Cochran. Es gibt verschiedene Stile und Stimmungen: Von wilden, rabenschweren Rockern wie´That Gal´s Wicked´ über tiefgründigen, gutturalen Blues wie´Walking Crying Blues´ bis hin zu langsamen Country-Tunes wie´Memories´ gibt uns Cochran wirklich eine Kostprobe seiner vielfältigen künstlerischen Talente. Während die Stimmung und das Tempo von Song zu Song variieren, bleibt eines jedoch ziemlich konstant: Cochrans soulige, emotionale Louisiana-Stimme. In der Tat war es in New Orleans, wo Jackie Lee seine Karriere begann, beeinflusst von Leuten wie Elvis, Hank Snow, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, etc. Nachdem Jackie Lee einige lokale Hits auf Minor-Labels hatte, wurde er bei Decca unter Vertrag genommen, wo Ruby Pearl´´ zu einem großen für ihn wurde. Leider verhinderten rechtliche Probleme (in Bezug auf seinen Vertrag), dass er die Spitze erreichte. Es war auch um diese Zeit (von 1956-1958), dass Cochran auf dem Louisiana Hayride und dem Big D Jamboree zu sehen war, die alle in Rosa und Schwarz gekleidet waren und einfach wie Craaaaazy weg rockten! Er war damals als ´´Jack The Cat´´ bekannt, und ein Laminat aus einer großen schwarzen Katze mit blinkenden roten Augen wurde auf der Bühne gerollt, bevor Jack seinen herrlich wilden, hüpfenden Auftritt machte! Das waren noch Zeiten!
