Summary

At a car dealership’s big opening day, the festivities are marred by the discovery of a corpseIt is September 1957, and America is waiting to meet the Edsel, Ford’s top-secret new automobile, whose promotional campaign has redefined the word hype. Sam McCain, lawyer, detective, and car fiend, has been dreaming of the Edsel for months. But when the sheet comes off Ford’s new creation, the car is a nightmare. Pastel colored, bulky, and with a distinctively ugly grill, the Edsel draws snickers instead of applause. But in case the dealership owner’s day isn’t going badly enough, one of the cars has a last surprise in store: a body in the trunk.She is the beautiful young wife of the district attorney, and Sam knows she deserved better than to end up dead in an ugly car. As the local police bungle the investigation, Sam quietly digs into the death—and finds a secret in his city that could be even more disastrous than the Edsel.

    Book-centered mystery novellas from four masters of the craft.  From Anne Perry, the New York Times–bestselling author of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, comes The Scroll.   Hapless bookseller Monty Danforth’s recent discovery of a millennia-old manuscript plunges him into a cutthroat conspiracy.   “A master storyteller.” —The Star-Ledger  Christopher Fowler, author of the Bryant and May mysteries, presents Reconciliation Day.   One man’s obsession with a lost edition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula sends him on a dangerous journey to Transylvania.   “If Edgar Allan Poe and Monty Python had lived in the same country and the same century and somehow struck up a creative collaboration, their work might have resulted in fiction similar to Fowler’s.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch  From F. Paul Wilson, the New York Times–bestselling creator of Repairman Jack, comes The Compendium of Srem.   Prior Tomás de Torquemada yields the ultimate power, deciding who lives and dies during the Spanish Inquisition, but an ancient, evil tome is about to change that.   “A great storyteller and a thoughtful one.” —David Morrell, New York Times–bestselling author of First Blood  Elizabeth George, the New York Times–bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley novels, brings you The Mysterious Disappearance of the Reluctant Book Fairy.   A woman’s gift for immersing herself in the plot of whatever book she likes draws overwhelming fame—and misfortune.   “An essential writer of popular fiction today.” —The Washington Post

    Six years ago, Tristan Stone was everything to me. My whole heart, my future. We were unshakeable, bound tighter by any force that tried to drive us apart. Then he disappeared from my life, leaving me in tatters, broken and running away to one of the most intense cities in the world. Somehow he found me, but now nothing is the same…
     
    Tristan claims someone wants me dead. He’s scarred and dangerous, but all of that seems to melt away when we touch. I might be the only one who can give him his memories, but I want more. The lover I could never forget is trapped inside the heartless man he’s become. I won’t stop until I reach him. I won’t stop until I find the answers he’s not giving me.

    Jeff Nichols — a man strong of conviction but weak of character — is fresh out of the Don Jail, looking for work — any kind of work — and a way back into Ann Ryan’s good graces. She waited for his return from prison but is quickly running short on patience. An ex-inmate and friend gets Jeff a job at Ted Bracey’s used car lot, selling cars for commission only. But it’s not enough to keep him and Ann afloat in mid-80s Toronto, and the lure of easy money soon gets Jeff involved in smuggling guns from upstate New York. With that sweet Poughkeepsie cash, now he can keep his promises to Ann; he even buys them a house, but conceals the source of the money. As Jeff gets in deeper and deeper, everyone around him learns how many rules he’s willing to bend and just how far he’ll go to get on the fast track to riches. That he’s a guy who doesn’t let lessons from past mistakes get in the way of a good score.
