The King of Swords
“One of the brightest new stars in the thriller genre.” —Chicago Sun-Times Nick Stone’s first novel, Mr. Clarinet, took the crime fiction world by storm—winning enthusiastic raves (“Exquisite” —South Florida Sun-Sentinel; “A spellbinding thriller of the highest order” —Chicago Tribune) as well as a Macavity and a CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award. In The King of Swords, Stone brings back Detective Max Mingus in a chilling and mesmerizing “prequel” that combines murder, police corruption, and voodoo black magic. The King of Swords blazes with Miami heat—and it earns Nick Stone a permanent spot in the winner’s circle alongside the masters James Ellroy, Dennis Lehane, James Lee Burke, Walter Mosley…and Stephen King.

Mr. Clarinet
“A first-class thriller that is equal parts hard-boiled Raymond Chandler mystery and voodoo-powered crime-fiction masterwork. . . . A spellbinding thriller of the highest order.” —Chicago Tribune Max Mingus wanted to turn down the case—15 million bucks or not. Three years had passed since Haitian billionaire Allain Carver’s five-year-old son was abducted. Sure, Max had been the best detective in Miami once. But that was before he went to jail. Before his wife died. Plus, he’d heard what had happened to the others who’d gone searching for Charlie Carver before him . . . With nothing left to lose—and a lot of money to gain—Max heads to Haiti. He knows about the voodoo and black magic. But when the trail to the missing boy leads to a local myth about a spirit child stealer named “Mr. Clarinet,” could the truth be even more shocking than the legend? Max’s job suddenly isn’t just about finding the boy, his killers, or the money—it’s about just staying alive.

Todesritual
Grausame Todesfälle, dunkle Magie und ein Geheimbund auf Kuba - Max Mingus ermittelt Der ehemalige Detective Max Mingus arbeitet inzwischen als Privatermittler. Er ist verbittert und desillusioniert, denn alle Fälle, die an ihn herangetragen werden, sind schmierige Ehescheidungen. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem sein ehemaliger Chef auf brutale Weise ermordet wird. Max findet Beweise, dass eine frühere Aktivistin der 'Black Power'-Bewegung ein sehr starkes Mordmotiv hatte - jedoch ist diese seit Jahren auf Kuba untergetaucht. Und so begibt sich Max in eine gefährliche Welt der dunklen Magie, des Verrats und des Todes ... Nick Stone wurde 1966 im englischen Cambridge geboren. Sein Vater ist der renommierte Historiker Norman Stone, seine Mutter entstammt einer der ältesten Familien Haitis, den Aubreys. Nick Stone verbrachte seine frühe Kindheit in Haiti, bevor er 1971 nach England zurückkehrte. Ein späterer einjähriger Aufenthalt in Haiti inspirierte ihn schliesslich zu seinem Debütroman 'Voodoo'. Das Werk begeisterte Leser wie Kritiker und wurde als bester Thriller des Jahres mit dem Steel Dagger sowie dem Debut Thriller Award ausgezeichnet und erhielt den Macavity Award für das beste Romandebüt. 'Der Totenmeister' ist Nick Stones zweiter Roman mit Max Mingus, ein dritter ist bereits in Vorbereitung. Der Autor ist verheiratet und lebt in London.
