Download and read online Circle of Sinners in PDF and EPUB Because they were collected into a single hardcover volume published by Subterranean Press, a good number of readers are acquainted with my three collaborations with Donald E. Westlake. That's not the case with CIRCLE OF SINNERS, a similar joint effort undertaken with another longstanding (and, I'm pleased to say, still standing) friend and colleague, Hal Dresner. Unlike two of the Block/Westlake titles, CIRCLE OF SINNERS did not bear a joint byline; Nightstand issued it as "by Don Holliday," which was in fact Hal's pen name. (To increase the level of confusion, one book of mine was originally published under that pen name, though I'm not entirely certain why; it's since been reissued by Hard Case Crime under my name and retitled BORDERLINE, and just the other day my Hollywood agent reported a movie guy inquiring about rights. Trust me, nothing will come of it.) But I digress. It's a pleasure to be able to bring back CIRCLE OF SINNERS, which was both easy and enjoyable to write-and, I can but hope, to read. The model here was REIGEN, a very successful play of Arthur Schnitzler's, better known as LA RONDE, the title of the French-language film by Max Ophuls. The structure-a chain of affairs, which each character in turn hooking up with someone else, served as the model for at least three additional films, beginning with Roger Vadim's CIRCLE OF LOVE in 1964. Well, Hal and I got there ahead of Vadim, though surely with less impact. I might add that one short novel of Schnitzler's, CASANOVA'S HOMECOMING, was on the shelves of my parents' library, and I had the great good fortune to read it at an impressionable age. (Come to think of it, I don't believe I ever had an age that wasn't impressionable. Never mind.) Schnitzler may have been more of an influence on my development as a writer than I've realized, and I suspect it would be interesting and enjoyable to read some more of his work. But for now we've got CIRCLE OF SINNERS-complete, in this instance, with the original Nightstand cover. That's something, isn't it?"

Places like Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach—or, as residents call it, “Little Odessa”—are flooded with teenage strivers eager to shake their accents and take what America has to offer. Kate Piro is as ambitious as they come, but her pluck only gets her as far as Times Square’s Starlight Club, where she dances naked under the stage name M. Anita Supreme. After being assaulted by a drunken Nigerian diplomat, Kate meets a kindly cop who falls hard for the headstrong stripper. He wants to save her—or at least sleep with her—but Kate doesn’t need his help. She’s determined to get out of Brighton Beach, even though every man she meets drags her deeper into a cesspit of sleaze, vice, and murder.

Download and read online Joyland in PDF and EPUB Ein unheimliches Vergnügen – der neue große Roman von Stephen King Stephen Kings Bestseller Der Anschlag – seine Zeitreise in die Sechzigerjahre – wurde von der Kritik einhellig in höchsten Tönen gelobt. In Joyland nun nimmt der Autor den Leser auf einen Trip in die Siebzigerjahre mit. Auf verhängnisvolle Weise kreuzen sich in einem kleinen Vergnügungspark die Wege eines untergetauchten Mörders und eines Kindes. Und mitten im sich überschlagenden Geschehen steht ein junger, unschuldiger Student und weiß: Irgendwann ist es mit der Unschuld vorbei. Irgendwann hört jeder Spaß auf. Um sich sein Studium zu finanzieren, arbeitet Devin Jones während der Semesterferien im Vergnügungspark Joyland an der Küste von North Carolina. Drei Dinge sind es, die ihn im Laufe des Sommers 1973 vor allem beschäftigen: Seine große Liebe Wendy gibt ihm per Brief den Laufpass. In der Geisterbahn Horror House soll es spuken, nachdem dort ein Mädchen ermordet wurde. Und er fragt sich, welches Geheimnis sich wohl hinter der schönen jungen Frau mit ihrem behinderten Sohn verbirgt, an deren Strandvilla er jeden Tag vorbeikommt. Vom unbekümmerten Schaustellerleben in Joyland fasziniert, verlängert Devin seinen Aufenthalt. Mit seinen neugierigen Nachforschungen tritt er jedoch eine Lawine von Ereignissen los, bei denen es schließlich um Tod oder Leben geht ...
