SOMMERAKTION!!! Alle E-Bücher von BERND SIEBERICHS zum Aktionspreis von EUR 2,99 - außer Neuerscheinungen. Mark Rytter ist der letzte Macho im Hohen Norden des gefährlichen Fahrwassers der Flensburger Förde: ein Relikt aus den Neunzigern. Allein sein Job als Fremdenführer stört das Image vom harten Kerl. Als der kleine Tom, der Sohn seiner Gäste entführt wird, muss Mark Rytter zu allem Ungemach auch noch seine empfindsame Seite entdecken. Fortan lenkt er sein Leben in der WG auf dem ausrangierten Do-X-Flugboot im ehemaligen Marinehafen in neue Bahnen. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Kindesentführung, In-Vitro-Fertilisation, Adoptionshandel und Leihmutterschaft übernimmt der Machomann zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben Verantwortung, findet wie nebenbei einen Job als privater Ermittler und lernt eine vollkommen neue Bedeutung des Begriffs "Musenkuss" kennen... Der wackere Kämpe für letzte Männer-Bastionen und Rauhbein-Reservate in der Republik lernt einzusehen, dass ein statisches Ermittler-Ich, das alten Mustern verhaftet ist, im Jahre 77 nach Marlowe keinen Wert mehr hat. So wandelt Mark Rytter sich mit seinen Fällen und seinen Erfahrungen zu einem echten Homo sociologicus. Der Lebenskünstler liebt Wilhelm Busch und pflegt sein Hobby, das Schreiben gegen den Strich gebürsteter Artikel für eine Lokalzeitung. Bei jeder passenden, meist aber unpassenden Gelegenheit wirft der frischgebackene Amateurdetektiv mit Bonmots nur so um sich. Wäre da nicht seine angehimmelte Mitbewohnerin, eine Übersetzerin, Mark Rytter würde glatt vom Macho- zum Maulhelden mutieren... "Ich packte den doppelläufigen Schießprügel am gefährlichen Ende und schwang ihn, wie weiland Babe Ruth seinen Baseballschläger geschwungen haben mochte." Kurz nach der Entführung von Tom baumelt ein vom Körper getrennter Arm am Fahnenmast der Hafen-WG. - Wird Rytter sich seiner Verantwortung stellen? - Was haben die aus Thailand verschleppten Kinder mit dem entführten Tom zu tun? - Welche Rolle spielt eine dubiose Leihmutteragentur? "Der Autor ist nicht nur ein exzellenter Schreiber: ihm ist auch das Kunststück gelungen, einen turbulenten klassischen Krimi, eine spröde Liebesgeschichte und einen witzigen Unterhaltungsroman in einem zu erzählen." BRIGITTE, P.OE.
Um eine fantastische Welt lebendig erscheinen zu lassen, benötigt sie eine Vergangenheit. Daher erschuf Bestsellerautor George R.R.

Dieser prachtvoll ausgestattete Bildband präsentiert erstmals die Geschichte von Westeros – beginnend in der Zeit, in der die ersten Menschen den Kontinent betraten, über die Ankunft von Aegon dem Eroberer und seinen Drachen bis zu Robert Baratheons Rebellion gegen den wahnsinnigen König Aerys II. Targaryen. Damit ist WESTEROS – Die Welt von Eis und Feuer der wahre Prolog der erfolgreichsten Fantasyserie unserer Zeit.
