In Hamburg-Harburg geht ein Feuerteufel um: Im Hafen gehen drei Yachten in Flammen auf. Kriminalkommissarin Petra Taler wird gerufen, weil zunächst unklar ist, ob Menschen an Bord waren. Und auch wenn dem nicht so ist, steckt Petra plötzlich mittendrin in einem Fall, der es in sich hat. Einer der Yachtbesitzer wird kurze Zeit später tot aufgefunden. Dann gibt es einen weiteren Toten, scheinbar völlig unabhängig von der ersten Leiche. Petra und ihr Team ermitteln in alle Richtungen, können aber keinen Zusammenhang und kaum verwertbare Spuren finden. Doch Petra ahnt, dass mehr dahinter steckt.

Rizzoli | 2016 | ISBN: 8817090786 | Italian | EPUB | 358 pages | 16 MB

Un capolavoro assoluto come la Gioconda non è solo un quadro da ammirare affascinati dagli occhi che sembrano vivi e dalla magia del sorriso. In realtà è un viaggio nella mente e nelle emozioni di Leonardo.

I remember back when Herbert Khaury kicked the bucket, 20 years ago this month. Everyone was wondering who would be the next Tiny Tim? Who would save the ukulele from itself? Some said it would be Jim Beloff, but that guy’s too square to do anything. Some said it would be Keiji Haino, but he wouldn’t sing words. And so, here, two decades out, we have finally decided to toss the crown to Angela Sawyer.
This new album, On the Pedestrian Side, has been compared to a more stripped down version of the work Ms. Sawyer does with Exusamwa, and there is a certain sense to that. But a canny listener will be drawn to the uke tunes here, and their similarity to the Great Tim, in terms of both approach and gobble. Without having any idea of where most of the songs performed here originate, I can still state that they sound (at least in part) like Peter Stampfel’s long-proposed survey of 20th Century popular music. In and out through imaginary decades of style and form, they resemble ape-moments of everything from Britney Spears to Fabian to David Sedaris’ version of Billie Holiday to Little Marcie to Lucille Bogan on helium, etc.
