When Dr Alice Tanner discovers two skeletons during an archaeological dig in southern France, she unearths a link with a horrific and brutal past. But it's not just the sight of the shattered bones that makes her uneasy; there's an overwhelming sense of evil in the tomb that Alice finds hard to shake off, even in the bright French sunshine. Puzzled by the words carved inside the chamber, Alice has an uneasy feeling that she has disturbed something which was meant to remain hidden... Eight hundred years ago, on the night before a brutal civil war ripped apart Languedoc, a book was entrusted to Alais, a young herbalist and healer. Although she cannot understand the symbols and diagrams the book contains, Alais knows her destiny lies in protecting their secret, at all costs. Skilfully blending the lives of two women divided by centuries but united by a common destiny, LABYRINTH is a powerful story steeped in the atmosphere and history of southern France.

Karibik, ungeschminkt Was tut man, wenn man während eines Vodou-Rituals in Haiti plötzlich zum Objekt der Zeremonie auserkoren wird? Was haben Sextouristen in der Dominikanischen Republik mit Kolumbus gemein? Warum ist Haiti eines der ärmsten Länder der Welt, obwohl Milliarden von Dollars in die winzige Nation gepumpt werden? Philipp Lichterbeck ist mehrere Monate durch die Dominikanische Republik und das erdbebenversehrte Haiti gereist. In Sosúa traf er einen Aussteiger, der die Menschheit mit seinen Raumschiffen retten will, in den dominikanischen Zentralkordilleren den Hexenjäger Bernardo Távarez und in Port-au-Prince zwei Bildhauer, die aus Schrott und Menschenschädeln Weltkunst montieren. Er war auf seiner Reise ganz unten: bei den Minenarbeitern, die den Halbedelstein Larimar schürfen. Und er war ganz oben: auf der Citadelle La Ferrière, dem »Machu Picchu Haitis«. Philipp Lichterbecks zwanzig Stories sind mal witzig, mal abenteuerlich, mal tragisch. Zusammengesetzt ergeben sie das Porträt einer Insel, auf der Schönheit, Kreativität und Witz neben Korruption, Gewalt und Ausbeutung existieren. Philipp Lichterbeck, Jahrgang 1972, hat in Berlin, Spanien und Mexiko Lateinamerikanistik studiert und danach ein Volontariat beim Tagesspiegel absolviert. Heute lebt er als freier Journalist in Rio de Janeiro. Er hat zahlreiche Reportagen aus Lateinamerika und der Karibik veröffentlicht. Häufig pendelt er zwischen Brasilien und der Dominikanischen Republik, über die er einen Reiseführer geschrieben hat. Regelmäßig besucht er auch Haiti. Seine Texte erscheinen vor allem im "Tagesspiegel", aber auch in "Zeit" oder "FAZ". Dieses E-Book basiert auf folgender Printausgabe: 1. Auflage 2013

But smuggling refugees over the mountains into neutral territory and sabotaging their German occupiers at every opportunity is only part of their mission. These women must also protect an ancient secret that, if discovered by their ruthless enemies, could change the course of history. A superb blend of rugged action and haunting mystery, Citadel is a vivid and richly atmospheric story of love, faith, heroism, and danger—and a group of extraordinary women who dare the impossible to survive.
