A serial killer is setting the most devious traps... There's no end to the deviousness of a murderer, and DCC Bob Skinner won't stop until the killer is caught in Death's Door, a riveting crime novel from Scotland's Crime Master Quintin Jardine. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin and Val McDermid. 'Jo Bannister, Peter Turnbull, and Ian Rankin can be considered read-a-likes, but when it comes to the depiction of a multilevel police force in action, Jardine... stands alone' - Library Journal When two young female artists are murdered in what looks like ritualistic killings, the pressure is on to find a highly professional murderer. What is the link with the art world? Is the killer a disgruntled art critic? A twice-jilted lover? The arrival of the father of one of the victims, millionaire businessman Davor Boras, brings in the big guns of the Home Office, MI5 and the CIA. It's not long before Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner gets called back to the frontline. With an estranged son, a dubious assistant and connections in very high places, what is more important to Boras: business or family? There's too much at stake - there's going to be bloodshed, and Skinner's men are at risk of getting caught in the crossfire... What readers are saying about Death's Door: 'This book has a wonderful, intriguing storyline... an overall must read' 'Flows along at speed like all Skinner novels but keeps you in suspense right up to the last page' '[Quintin Jardine] is THE best crime writer of all time'

Ein Thriller, der alle Vorstellungen von Schuld und Verbrechen infrage stellt Zwei Frauen treffen sich zufällig nach 25 Jahren wieder. Damals verbrachten sie als Elfjährige einen verhängnisvollen Sommertag miteinander, der sie zu Mörderinnen machte. Sie haben zwar neue Identitäten angenommen, aber ihr schlimmster Albtraum ist, dass ihre Vergangenheit sie einholt. Wie ein einziger Fehler ein Leben zerstören kann, das schildert Alex Marwood in ihrem abgründigen und psychologisch ausgefeilten Roman „Im Schatten der Lüge“. Sie beschreibt das Labyrinth einer düsteren Vergangenheit, aus dem es kein Entrinnen gibt. Und sie erzählt, ohne ihre Heldinnen zu verurteilen – subtil, modern und packend. Anke Göbel, Lektorat

This is the true story of my meeting with the Zodiac Killer at San Luis Obispo, California, in March 1973! How was this humanly possible? I grew up near State Highway 101 and the Atascadero State Mental Hospital for the Criminally Insane! Today it is believed by many, the Zodiac Killer had ‘snapped’ on more than one occasion and, he had been ‘committed’ to state! This was a case of me being in the wrong place at the wrong time! I was twenty-three-years-old, whenever I ventured out to the city one early evening in 1973 to meet girls at an old fashion tavern: The Irish Tavern! A strange middle aged man came into the tavern, picked me out, and we sat at a small round table and he had a real need to talk to someone ‘about’ the Zodiac Murders! I became suspicious when at one point in the conversation, the man donning the blue windbreaker jacket, nearly broke down and began to cry as he exhibited feelings of deep remorse, total condemnation, and terrible guilt! Book one is the true story of the early childhood of the Zodiac Killer who grew up inside a witch’s coven in Massachusetts, and, he was the subject of horrible sexual abuse and nightmarish events that eventually turned him into the authentic: BOOGEYMAN! Today, I don’t feel Zodiac wanted to harm me the night we talked in March 1973. I believe the killer was tired of living with what he had done as he told me he was tired of living with the terrible guilt that haunted him daily. I believe Zodiac was facing his ‘own’ mortality the night he picked me out and we talked three-chilling-hours about the murders that he ‘alone’ had so ruthlessly committed in California. For three-chilling-hours, Zodiac dropped breadcrumbs as clues all around the table where we drank cold beer together and smoked cigarettes inside the old Irish Tavern at San Luis Obispo, California, in March, 1973. I have spent thirty-years researching and writing two books about the Zodiac Killer and the ‘overall’ crime history. Today, I am confident that I will one day be able to ‘locate’ the actual killer through a DNA profile and finally, I will solve this difficult and incredible case! Zodiac wanted the whole world to finally 'know' who he had been in real life! He ‘hand-picked’ me, a frightened twenty-three-year-old kid, to speak for him from beyond the grave! It also happens to still be true! Dead men, REALLY DO, TELL TALES!
