"A reimagining of Teddy and Kermit Roosevelt's ill-fated 1914 Amazon expedition--a psychological twist on the smart historical thriller that first put Louis Bayard on the map. 1914. Brazil's Rio da Dúvida, the River of Doubt. Plagued by hunger and suffering the lingering effects of malaria, Theodore Roosevelt, his son Kermit, and the other members of the now-ravaged Roosevelt-Rondon scientific expedition are traveling deeper and deeper into the jungle. When Kermit and Teddy are kidnapped by a never-before-seen Amazonian tribe, the great hunters are asked one thing in exchange for their freedom: find and kill a beast that leaves no tracks and that no member of the tribe has ever seen. But what are the origins of this beast, and how do they escape its brutal wrath? Roosevelt's Beast is a story of the impossible things that become possible when civilization is miles away, when the mind plays tricks on itself, and when old family secrets refuse to stay buried. With his characteristically rich storytelling and a touch of old-fashioned horror, the bestselling and critically acclaimed Louis Bayard turns the story of the well-known Roosevelt-Rondon expedition on its head and dares to ask: Are the beasts among us more frightening than the beasts within?"--

Plunging into the rolling brown fog of 1860's London, through filthy back alleys and boarding houses, Tim succeeds - or so he thinks - in sidestepping his past, but fate deals him a cruel blow when he discovers the bodies of two dead girls in the Thames, each seared with the same cruel brand on the upper arm. Unable to forget their horror-stricken death masks and spurred on by a street-smart, homeless boy who calls himself Colin the Melodious, Timothy finds himself on the trail of something far worse - and far more dangerous - than an ordinary killer

"Vidocq!" Der Name bringt die Pariser Unterwelt des Jahres 1818 zum Erzittern. Denn der Chef der Geheimpolizei hat die berüchtigsten Verbrecher des Landes hinter Schloß und Riegel gebracht. Nun ist er einem Fall auf der Spur, bei dem das Schicksal ganz Frankreichs auf dem Spiel steht. Paris 1818: Die Rufe nach Revolution sind längst verklungen, Napoleon endgültig vertrieben und die Bourbonen wieder an der Macht. Doch die neue, noch fragile Ordnung wird bedroht: Louis-Charles, Sohn Marie Antoinettes und Ludwigs XVI., scheint wieder unter den Lebenden zu weilen. Dabei gilt der einstige Kronprinz, der die letzten Monate seines jungen Lebens in einem schwarzen Turm gefangengehalten wurde, schon seit Jahren als tot. François Vidocq, Chef der Geheimpolizei und Schrecken der Pariser Unterwelt, folgt den Gerüchten durch die dunklen Gassen des Quartier Latin und die verwahrlosten Salons des alten Adels. Dabei trifft er auf den verwirrten Charles Rappskeller. Und tatsächlich spricht einiges dafür, daß der junge Mann der verschollene Königssohn ist. Während Vidocq versucht herauszufinden, was damals im schwarzen Turm wirklich geschehen ist, setzt ein gewisser "Monsieur" alles daran, Charles Rappskeller wieder verschwinden zu lassen
