Love Story, With Murders
by Harry Bingham

A Novel (Fiona Griffiths Book 2)

D.C. Fiona Griffiths is facing the prospect of a dull weekend when the call comes in, something about illegal dumping in a Cardiff suburb. But when she arrives on the scene she finds, in a garage freezer, a severed human leg, complete with a pink suede high-heeled shoe.

South Wales police are able to ID the body part as that of a young woman who went missing five years earlier; a young woman who once made a living as an exotic dancer. All at once, Fiona’s job as a detective and her role as a loving daughter collide: Fiona’s father owns a Cardiff strip club and was once deeply involved in the local crime scene.

Still in recovery from a devastating psychotic breakdown, Fiona is wary of exploring a path that might end at her father’s door . . . yet her obsessive approach to criminal investigation leaves her no other option.

But Fiona’s specialty is not the living, it is the dead. And as she is just starting to get into the murdered girl’s head, a severed hand is found—and this one is male.

Soon, police are swamped with an increasing number of body parts found in and around suburban gardens, sheds, and garages. Media attention is intense, and investigators are working from a list of hundreds of persons of interest. When the department identifies the second victim, Fiona struggles to connect him with the dead stripper. What do the victims have in common? And why this macabre method of disposing the corpses?

The answers may be more than Fiona can handle. Because in order to solve the riddle of these hideous murders, D.C. Fiona Griffiths will have to delve into the mysteries of her past—and hope she comes out intact . . . and alive.

The Last American Martyr
by
Tom Winton

DescriptionTom Soles was an unemployed doorman when he wrote a book that rocked the nation. Entitled Enough is Enough it revealed the truth about who was really at fault for the unfair spread of wealth in America. Working folks adored it; the upper echelon hated it. Either way it was viewed, it became a best seller and won him the Nobel Prize for Literature.

When we first meet Tom, he is using an assumed name and all the local townsfolk consider him a hermit. But after a visit from his mail carrier, Jake Snow, we begin to learn more about the man that Jake also had written off as a recluse. Jake has plenty of time and questions, and as he begins to get answers, the two men quickly strike up a close friendship. Then Tom gives Jake an opportunity. He offers to let him read a memoir he's been working on. Jake accepts, and we begin a story within a story.

What happened between writing that blockbuster book and Tom ending up as a hermit? Jake and the reader are both in for quite a ride! Part mystery, part romance, part drama--The Last American Martyr has it all.

DescriptionA Lady Emily Mystery (Lady Emily Mysteries Book 9)

After an odd encounter at a grand masquerade ball, Lady Emily becomes embroiled in the murder investigation of one of the guests, a sometime actress trying to pass herself off as the mysterious heiress and world traveler Estella Lamar. Each small discovery, however, leads to more questions. Was the intended victim Miss Lamar or the imposter? And who would want either of them dead?

As Emily and Colin try to make sense of all this, a larger puzzle begins to emerge: No one has actually seen Estella Lamar in years, since her only contact has been through letters and the occasional blurry news photograph. Is she even alive? Emily and Colin’s investigation of this double mystery takes them from London to Paris, where, along with their friend Cécile, they must scour the darkest corners of the city in search of the truth.

Jebby and Dodi live their unusually diverse and rich adventure and romance, surrounded by an international cast and superb musicians.

Still On Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death
by
Michael Kroft

DescriptionThe first murder raised eyebrows, the second raised alarms. Ten-year old Dewey Dixon is moving, and he couldn't be more excited; though, he's alone in his enthusiasm. Lisa, his mother, and recently retired Avriel, his next door neighbour and best buddy, don't share his excitement regarding the move from a bungalow in a middle class neighbourhood to a dirty basement level apartment in the lower-class neighbourhood at the edge of Halifax’s city limits where two murders have recently occurred. This sometimes lighthearted and at other times intense novel follows Dewey as he adjusts to his new environment, befriends Blue, a streetwise kid, and Stevie, a tough kid who talks only by whispering, and then crosses paths with a serial killer preying on children.
