In einem Hotel in Florida treffen zufällig drei Pärchen aus England aufeinander. Sie freunden sich an und verbringen die Tage gemeinsam unter der glühenden Sonne mit Drinks am Pool. Es scheint der perfekte Urlaub zu sein. Doch in der letzten Nacht vor der gemeinsamen Abreise verschwindet ein Mädchen aus dem Hotel, das später tot in den Sümpfen gefunden wird. Zurück in England bleiben die drei Paare in Kontakt. Um ihre frisch geknüpfte Freundschaft zu vertiefen und das Erlebte zu verarbeiten, laden sie sich reihum nach Hause zum Abendessen ein. So kommt es zu drei Begegnungen, bei denen die Paare am Esstisch über ihr Leben sprechen. Je mehr sie dabei voneinander erfahren, desto fremder und unheimlicher werden sie sich. Die abendlichen Treffen sind zunehmend geprägt von Merkwürdigkeiten, Misstrauen und dem beklemmenden Verdacht, dass hinter der Fassade des jeweils anderen nichts ist, wie es scheint; ein Verdacht, der sich schließlich auf schreckliche Weise bestätigt.

Perfect strangers. A perfect holiday. The perfect murder. In the standalone novel Rush of Blood, internationally bestselling author Mark Billingham puts a sinister twist on a deceptively innocent topic: the beach vacation. Three British couples meet around the pool on their Florida holiday and become fast friends. But on Easter Sunday, the last day of their vacation, tragedy strikes: the fourteen-year-old daughter of an American vacationer goes missing, and her body is later found floating in the mangroves. When the shocked couples return home to the U.K., they remain in contact, and over the course of three increasingly fraught dinner parties they come to know one another better. But they don’t always like what they find. Buried beneath these apparently normal exteriors are some unusual kinks and unpleasant vices. Then, a second girl goes missing, in Kent—not far from where any of the couples lives. Could it be that one of these six has a secret far darker than anybody can imagine? Ambitiously plotted and laced with dark humor, Rush of Blood is a first-rate suspense novel about the danger of making new friends in seemingly sunny places.

Sie töteten meine Mutter. Sie raubten uns die Magie. Sie zwangen uns in den Staub. Jetzt erheben wir uns. Zélies Welt war einst voller Magie. Flammentänzer spielten mit dem Feuer, Geistwandler schufen schillernde Träume, und Seelenfänger wie Zélies Mutter wachten über Leben und Tod. Bis zu der Nacht, als ihre Kräfte versiegten und der machthungrige König von Orïsha jeden einzelnen Magier töten ließ. Die Blutnacht beraubte Zélie ihrer Mutter und nahm einem ganzen Volk die Hoffnung. Jetzt hat Zélie eine einzige Chance, die Magie nach Orïsha zurückzuholen. Ihre Mission führt sie über dunkle Pfade, wo rachedurstige Geister lauern, und durch glühende Wüsten, die ihr alles abverlangen. Dabei muss sie ihren Feinden immer einen Schritt voraus sein. Besonders dem Kronprinzen, der mit allen Mitteln verhindern will, dass die Magie je wieder zurückkehrt ... Der internationale Bestseller!

Blood and Wine is complied from a collection of fictional writings, free verse and autobiographical material I wrote and published in several books over the years. I selected segments I thought were essential to the general focus of my book to hone prose and target free verse to signify the creative process within which my book strives. I began the book with a poetic challenge-Intruders, do not enter the mind / of the unborn child in the womb of thought-thereby promoting prose against the originality of free verse.
