One of my favorites
Working Stiff: Casimir - Blair Babylon

Blair is one of my favorite authors. This story is at the top of my list. I love the Georgie/Xan series, it is my favorite but Casmir is a close second. Her books are always a good read.

Tauchen Sie in die Welt der Goldenen Zwanziger ein mit Doku-Krimis von Volker Kutscher, Oliver Schütte und Horst Bosetzk

Bevor es das Alexa-Einkaufszentrum, den Fernsehturm und die Weltzeituhr gab, war der Alexanderplatz bei den Berlinern für die Rote Burg bekannt. Die Rote Burg wurde zwischen 1886 und 1890 erbaut und war zu dieser Zeit nach dem Stadtschloss das zweitgrößte Gebäude Berlins. Der imposante rote Ziegelbau war zur Kaiserzeit und in der Weimarer Republik das Hauptquartier der Berliner Polizeipräsidenten und beherbergte einen Großteil des Verwaltungspersonals der Polizeidienststellen. Hier arbeitete der berühmte Kriminalinspektor Ernst Gennat, der Vater der modernen Forensik, 30 Jahre lang.

Die Rote Burg ist auch Schauplatz für eine Reihe historischer Kriminalromane, die den Geist der Goldenen Zwanzigerjahre in Berlin einfangen. 2008 führte der Journalist und Autor Volker Kutscher mit „Der nasse Fisch“ die Leser in die düstere und faszinierende Welt Berlins zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen ein. Acht Bücher folgten in der Serie „Babylon Berlin“, und jetzt hat ARD zusammen mit Sky TV und Beta-Film den Kommissar Gereon Rath auf Fernsehbildschirmen im ganzen Land zum Leben erweckt. „Babylon Berlin“ ist die bisher teuerste deutsche Fernsehserie und die teuerste nicht-englische Serie aller Zeiten.

Der Autor Oliver Schütte schuf eine ebenso faszinierende Serie „Metropolis Berlin“, die die gleichen Grundthemen umspannt: Berlin in der Weimarer Republik, eine Stadt mit über vier Millionen Einwohnern, berühmt für ihre Kreativität und ihr skandalöses Nachtleben, aber auch geplagt von einer mächtigen kriminellen Unterwelt und politischer Gewalt. Ebenso nimmt der Doku-Kriminalautor Horst Bosetzky den Leser mit auf eine Reise durch die kriminelle Unterwelt der Weimarer Republik, die er in seiner Serie „Es geschah in Berlin“ beschreibt.


Um mehr über Berlin in den Goldenen Zwanzigerjahren und andere historische Epochen zu erfahren, die durch die Linse des Katz-und-Maus-Spiels von Polizeiinspektoren und gewieften Kriminellen gesehen werden, schauen Sie sich unsere Sammlung historischer Kriminalromane an.

A Riveting Expose for Hudson Fans
Rock Hudson Erotic Fire (Blood Moon's Ba... Rock Hudson Erotic Fire (Blood Moon's Babylon Series) - Darwin Porter,Danforth Prince

Rock Hudson Erotic Fire is based on some fifty years of information from Rock Hudson's friends, many lovers, and associates, proffering an in-depth biography which includes much information not contained in prior books about Hudson's life. This fact is especially surprising since over thirty years has passed since his death, and because so much has already been written about him that one might wonder at the need for yet another survey of his life. 


Rock Hudson fans will find much to enjoy in this exposé about the iconic actor which gives information about his bisexuality and many lovers along with reconsiderations of his acting career, vivid life, and death. 


The part that really stands out is the in-depth surveys of his relationships with men and women alike, revealing many aspects of a part of Hudson's world that other books have either glossed over or only lightly touched upon. 


The result is an exposé that offers the depth and detail any avid Hudson fan should receive. It's especially recommended for prior enthusiasts and collections strong in Hollywood biographies.

16 Tasks of the Festive Season - Square #12: Festivus
The Spy Who Loved Me - Ian Fleming
The Unexpected Guest - Charles Osborne,Agatha Christie
Courts of Babylon - Peter Bodo
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - J.K. Rowling,John Kerr Tiffany,Jack Thorne
Two Serious Ladies - Jane Bowles

 Tasks for Festivus: Post your personal list of 3 Festivus Miracles –OR– post a picture of your Festivus pole (NOTHING pornographic, please!), –OR– Perform the Airing of Grievances:  name 5 books you’ve read this year that have disappointed you - tell us in tongue-lashing detail why and how they failed to live up to expectations.


2017 has brought a great many books and thankfully most of them were good or entertaining or at least ok. However, there have also been some real stinkers*, and of those the following tomes have taken the proverbial Christmas cookie:


(* I have only considered books that I read in full. If I had considered DNF's, this list would be much longer.)



1. The Spy Who Loved Me - Ian Fleming


I thought I had already read the worst that Fleming could dream up when I tried to suppress to throw up all the way through From Russia With Love but this was nothing compared to the sick-fest that was The Spy Who Loved Me. I seriously would have liked to hit Bond and his creator with a shovel, repeatedly, hard, when reading that book. Even thinking about the book still brings up feelings of rage and nausea. 



2. The Unexpected Guest - Charles Osborne


I refuse to cite Agatha Christie as the author of this. She may have written the original play, but Osborne managed to destroy the original work as only Osborne can - with gusto and beyond any hope of repair. Even if Dame Agatha's works are sometimes a bit twisted, Osborne managed to turn this one into a farcical hot mess. Again. Like the other Christie books he turned his hand to.



3. The Courts of Babylon - Peter Bodo


Boy, oh boy, oh boy. This was the book that tried to set a new record of how many dumbass comments one author can cram into a book. I have no motivation to find out whether Bodo really did set a record here, and I am sorely disappointed that not only Bodo represented sports and sports reporting to thousands of viewers, readers, listeners who have over the years been subjected to his self-congratulatory, patronising, imperialist, sexist, and bigoted comments, but also that I actually finished reading this book.



4. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - John Tiffany & Jack Thorne


Well, this will be brief: the author's got pretty much all of the HP characters wrong and their plot had some serious holes. This was fan-fiction at best, which is an insult to fan-fiction because this was really bad fan-fiction. No, seriously, just give it a miss and enjoy a re-read of the original HP books. 



5. Two Serious Ladies - Jane Bowles


I don't even know what this book was. I'm still more puzzled that this book apparently made Jane Bowles into some sort of adored writer. I don't get it. At all. This was one of the most boring, underwhelming, inconsequential books about drama-lama main characters who were so wrapped up in their first-world not-even-close-to-real-problems that ...

Nah, I can't even be bothered to waste energy airing my grievances about this one.
