Marriages of convenience are so...inconvenient. For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush.

Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions. Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway´s hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway-until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he´s in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago. Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway-in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting-will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

Westside (eBook, ePUB)
14,99 € *

´´Superb . . . his research is excellent . . . his prose sharply crystalline.” -- New York Times Book Review ´´ The Alienist meets The City & The City in this brilliant debut that mixes fantasy and mystery. Gilda Carr´s ´tiny mysteries´ pack a giant punch.´´ --David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder As a Fine Art ** A young detective who specializes in ´´tiny mysteries” finds herself at the center of a massive conspiracy in this beguiling historical fantasy set on Manhattan´s Westside—a peculiar and dangerous neighborhood home to strange magic and stranger residents—that blends the vivid atmosphere of Caleb Carr with the imaginative power of Neil Gaiman. It´s 1921, and a thirteen-mile fence running the length of Broadway splits the island of Manhattan, separating the prosperous Eastside from the Westside—an overgrown wasteland whose hostility to modern technology gives it the flavor of old New York. Thousands have disappeared here, and the respectable have fled, leaving behind the killers, thieves, poets, painters, drunks, and those too poor or desperate to leave. It is a hellish landscape, and Gilda Carr proudly calls it home. Slightly built, but with a will of iron, Gilda follows in the footsteps of her late father, a police detective turned private eye. Unlike that larger-than-life man, Gilda solves tiny mysteries: the impossible puzzles that keep us awake at night; the small riddles that destroy us; the questions that spoil marriages, ruin friendships, and curdle joy. Those tiny cases distract her from her grief, and the one impossible question she knows she can´t answer: ´´How did my father die?” Yet on Gilda´s Westside, tiny mysteries end in blood—even the case of a missing white leather glove. Mrs. Copeland, a well-to-do Eastside housewife, hires Gilda to find it before her irascible merchant husband learns it is gone. When Gilda witnesses Mr. Copeland´s murder at a Westside pier, she finds herself sinking into a mire of bootlegging, smuggling, corruption—and an evil too dark to face. All she wants is to find one dainty ladies´ glove. She doesn´t want to know why this merchant was on the wrong side of town—or why he was murdered in cold blood. But as she begins to see the connection between his murder, her father´s death, and the darkness plaguing the Westside, she faces the hard truth: she must save her city or die with it. Introducing a truly remarkable female detective, Westside is a mystery steeped in the supernatural and shot through with gunfights, rotgut whiskey, and sizzling Dixieland jazz. Full of dazzling color, delightful twists, and truly thrilling action, it announces the arrival of a wonderful new talent.

Alexander Hamilton
29,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From National Book Award winner Ron Chernow comes a landmark biography of Alexander Hamilton, the Founding Father who galvanized, inspired, scandalized, and shaped the newborn nation. The inspiration for the hit Broadway musical Hamilton! In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, National Book Award winner Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is ´´a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.´´ Few figures in American history have been more hotly debated or more grossly misunderstood than Alexander Hamilton. Chernow´s biography gives Hamilton his due and sets the record straight, deftly illustrating that the political and economic greatness of today´s America is the result of Hamilton´s countless sacrifices to champion ideas that were often wildly disputed during his time. ´´To repudiate his legacy,´´ Chernow writes, ´´is, in many ways, to repudiate the modern world.´´ Chernow here recounts Hamilton´s turbulent life: an illegitimate, largely self-taught orphan from the Caribbean, he came out of nowhere to take America by storm, rising to become George Washington´s aide-de-camp in the Continental Army, coauthoring The Federalist Papers, founding the Bank of New York, leading the Federalist Party, and becoming the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. Historians have long told the story of America´s birth as the triumph of Jefferson´s democratic ideals over the aristocratic intentions of Hamilton. Chernow presents an entirely different man, whose legendary ambitions were motivated not merely by self-interest but by passionate patriotism and a stubborn will to build the foundations of American prosperity and power. His is a Hamilton far more human than we´ve encountered before-from his shame about his birth to his fiery aspirations, from his intimate relationships with childhood friends to his titanic feuds with Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Monroe, and Burr, and from his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds to his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza. And never before has there been a more vivid account of Hamilton´s famous and mysterious death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July of 1804. Chernow´s biography is not just a portrait of Hamilton, but the story of America´s birth seen through its most central figure. At a critical time to look back to our roots, Alexander Hamilton will remind readers of the purpose of our institutions and our heritage as Americans.
