Travelling Light by Tove Jansson The precariousness of travel is revealed in this unnerving new collection of stories." Introduced by Ali Smith; Translated for the first time from the Swedish by Silvester Mazzarella; Translated into English for the first time, Travelling Light takes us into new Tove Jansson territory. A professor arrives in a beautiful Spanish village only to find that her host has left and she must cope with fractious neighbours alone; a holiday on a Finnish Island is thrown into disarray by an oddly intrusive child; an artist returns from abroad to discover that her past has been eerily usurped. With the deceptively light prose that is her hallmark, Tove Jansson reveals to us the precariousness of a journey - the unease we feel at being placed outside of our millieu, the restlessness and shadows that intrude upon a summer.
Evildoers beware! Four of mystery fiction's top storytellers are setting the hounds on your trail -- in an incomparable quartet of crime stories with a canine edge. Man's (and woman's) best friends take the lead in this phenomenal collection of tales tense and surprising, humorous and thrilling.
New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance's spellbinding saga of a scam-busting septuagenarian and her two golden retrievers; Anthony Award winner Virginia Lanier's pureblood thriller featuring bloodhounds and bloody murder; Chassie West's suspenseful stunner about a life-saving German shepherd and a ghastly forgotten crime; rising star Lee Charles Kelley's edge-of-your-seat yarn that pits an ex-cop/kennel owner and a yappy toy poodle against a craven killer.
Three sisters vying for attention. One matriarch to keep them in line.
A world of adventure filled with nefarious characters, hidden secrets, mysterious activities, and sunken treasure.
Yes, sunken treasure. Because this is the ocean, where pearls are common, crimes are not, and mysteries lurk behind every cluster of coral.
Welcome to Sirenia, the mermaid colony in unchartered waters!
TAILS FROM THE DEEP – Mermaid Mystery #1
There's something fishy going on at the edge of Sirenia…
Zoe wasn't looking for trouble. As the middle daughter in a family of three mermaid sisters, she never gets the attention she deserves. She spends her days frolicking with sea creatures by the sunken battleship that sits at the edge of Sirenia, and her nights being lectured about danger. But when she finds a diver trapped in the kelp by the wreckage, she overcomes her shock to free him. The problem? The only available tool to cut him loose is the knife in the body on the ocean floor by his feet.
What happens when a mermaid saves dangerous stranger?
If you're that mermaid, you might have to solve a mystery to save yourself.
Zoe learns the diver is a detective tasked with solving the dead man's murder. Being in the unique position of finding evidence underwater, Zoe volunteers to help . . . until she finds a clue that links the body to her older sister. Now the only way to ensure the safety of her sister—and protect the mermaid colony she always dreamed of leaving behind—is to discover the dead man's identity herself. Zoe is used to being invisible around the other mermaids, but what happens when her sleuthing for clues exposes herself to the humans who may be responsible for a murder? With the evidence hidden in the ocean floor, digging for clues could lead to an early grave . . . in Davy Jones's Locker.
You'll love splashing around in the virtual world of Sirenia, because mermaid mysteries are the perfect escapist fiction.

Spanish speakers around the world for generations have told stories of La Llorona, "the weeping woman," and the many versions of this legendary phantom woman vary from one region to the next. In this book of fifty-six stories shared by people from the American Southwest as well as south of the border, there are dozens of versions of this ghostly specter that range from a terrifying skeletal creature with blood dripping from its eyes to a baby with fangs wrapped in a quilt -- but no matter what she looks like, she nearly always manages to terrorize her wayward victims into changing their ways.
