is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.
This week I want to post about the thriller Mean Streak, which will be published in Germany later this year for the very first time under the title Sanfte Rache.
I don´t know why that is, but since a couple of years, I love to read Sandra Brown books. Well, to be precise I love her thrillers way more than the other genres she wrote about in her beginning as a writer. I think her thrillers are the right combination of tension, suspense, passion and psychological finesse.
And besides that, I saw the cover and was like wow! That looks gorgeous. Good, you can´t compare it with the original, that is a completely different story, but the German edition is, at least in my eyes, one hell of a great cover motive. Alone the color mix is something I like very much. And the blurb is very promising, another good thing about it *laugh*
Sanfte Rache will be published on December 12, 2016, by Blanvalet (Hardcover).
Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of “instant divorce, “ Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself that captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won´t even tell her his name. She´s determined to escape him and willing to take any risks necessary to survive. Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can´t turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear, but also sparks passion. As her husband´s deception is revealed and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead – and from heartbreak.
