What could cause Bob to give up his job at the Los Angeles pathology lab that demands so little of him, where he can play Tetris and web surf whenever he wants? What could lead him to walk out on his beautiful girlfriend, who makes her living as a masturbation coach? What could make him risk everything and ultimately transform him into Roberto, a kingpin in the Los Angeles Mexican mafia? An erotic tattoo. But not just any naughty skin ink, the Mona Lisa of erotic tattoos, painted on a severed arm, which lands on Bob´s desk one morning. Bob may have fallen for the woman in the tattoo, but he´s not the only one who wants the arm. There´s the telenovela-addicted mobster who lost it, the jefe who needs to keep it out of the clutches of the police, a backstabbing cannabis aficionado/Wharton MBA, and a wine snob LAPD detective who knows that the arm is the evidence he needs to bring down the entire Mexican mafia. 1.

Does everyone have a certain ´´type´´ they end up with, whether they want to or not? If Ray Carlucci´s ex is anything to go by, Ray likes his men gorgeous, rebellious, and chock-full of issues. But now that Ray is single again, he has a shot at a fresh start - a very fresh start, since his tattoo shop was gutted by repo men and he can fit all his belongings in the trunk of a taxi. Ray´s shiny new chauffeur´s license lands him a job as a driver for an elderly couple on Red Wing Island. It´s a cold fall, and since the Michigan island is the summer home to snowbirds who fly south for the winter, it´s practically deserted - save for Ray´s new household and a sculptor named Anton Kopec, who works day and night twisting brambles and twine into the distorted shapes of macabre creatures. Compelling, bizarre, and somewhat disturbing...not just the sculptures, but the artist, too. Ray has a feeling Anton is just his ´´type´´. When a dead body is unearthed by some workers and a freak ice storm traps them all on the island, Ray can´t say for certain that his new flame isn´t capable of murder - despite their scorching chemistry. 1.

Although Banyan´s never seen a real tree - they were destroyed more than a century ago - his missing father used to tell him stories about the Old World. Everything changes when Banyan meets a mysterious woman with a strange tattoo-a map to the last living trees on earth, and he sets off across a wasteland from which few return.

Liebe geht durch den Magen, aber was wird aus der Liebe, wenn sie durch den Magen durch ist? Sie geht ins Blut! Menschen, die sich geliebt fühlen, haben nachweislich weniger Herzinfarkte. Die Liebe - sie ist angeblich das größte aller Gefühle. Vielleicht auch das größte Placebo? Was weiß die Wissenschaft über die Liebe? Und was ist überzeugender: ein Tattoo oder eine Kernspintomografie, 100 rote Rosen bringen oder einmal den Müll runter? Liebesbeweise sind meistens sehr peinlich und bewirken das Gegenteil. Höchste Zeit, dass sich Hirschhausen der Sache annimmt, damit es auch bei aller Liebe was zu lachen gibt. Wer die Logik der Hormone kennt, hat nicht weniger vom Leben, sondern mehr. In seinem Erfolgsprogramm ´´Glücksbringer´´ half Dr. Eckart von Hirschhausen dem Glück des Einzelnen auf die Sprünge. Jetzt untersucht Deutschlands witzigster Arzt das Glück im Miteinander. Eine Operation am offenen Herzen. Ohne Mundschutz geht er der großen Frage nach, ob es eine große Liebe gibt, oder viele kleine, warum wir uns so richtig meist in die Falschen verlieben und was Liebeskummer mit einem Drogenentzug gemeinsam hat. Und er steht Rede und Antwort zu allem, was das Herz bewegt: Reicht im Geschlechterkampf Singlesein schon als Alleinstellungsmerkmal? Wenn schon die Zweisamkeit nicht funktioniert, wie viele Gemeinheiten stecken in größeren Gemeinschaften? Gibt es Schwarmintelligenz oder schaltet der Verstand aus, wenn wir beginnen zu schwärmen? Deutschland ist das viertreichste Land der Erde, aber bei der Zufriedenheit auf Platz 35. Woran kann man noch glauben? Ist es ein Liebesbeweis an sein Land, es nicht zu lieben - und sich selbst auch nicht? Und wenn uns alle anderen mal gerne haben können, warum tun sie es nicht? Dr. Hirschhausen verarztet die angeknacksten und gebrochenen Herzen. ´´Liebesbeweise´´ - ein Aufklärungsabend für Abgeklärte, für Romantiker und für alle, die dachten, sie wüssten schon, was Liebe ist. Endlich mal wieder lachen ü... 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Eckart von Hirschhausen. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/beli/000002/bk_beli_000002_sample.mp3. Digitales Hörbuch im AAX Format.
The republic faces annihilation, despite the vigilance of Galharrow´s Blackwings. When a raven tattoo rips itself from his arm to deliver a desperate message, Galharrow and a mysterious noblewoman must investigate a long-dead sorcerer´s legacy. But there is a conspiracy within the citadel: traitors, flesh eaters and the ghosts of the wastelands seek to destroy them, but if they cannot solve the ancient wizard´s paradox, the Deep Kings will walk the earth again, and all will be lost. The war with the Eastern Empire ended in stalemate some 80 years ago thanks to Nall´s Engine, a wizard-crafted weapon so powerful even the Deep Kings feared it. The strike of the engine created the Misery - a wasteland full of ghosts and corrupted magic that now forms a no-man´s-land along the frontier. But when Galharrow investigates a frontier fortress, he discovers complacency bordering on treason: then the walls are stormed, and the engine fails to launch. Galharrow escapes only because of the preternatural magical power of the noblewoman he was supposed to be protecting. Together they race to the capital to unmask the traitors and restore the republic´s defences. Far across the Misery, a vast army is on the move, as the empire prepares to call the republic´s bluff. Blackwing is a gritty epic fantasy for fans of Mark Lawrence, Scott Lynch and Daniel Polansky. Read by Colin Mace. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Mace.
