Charlie Davies is back, and she’s bored.
Not only has she not worked a case in months, but now that she’s on holidays her friends are dragging her along to a self improvement class to get ready for the new year. Early mornings, yoga, health food… Basically a total nightmare.
Plus her, uh, ‘friend’ Adam has been away from town for six months without sending so much as a text message her way, and Charlie’s beginning to wonder why he’s so studiously avoiding her.
When a man is found dead at the yoga studio during Charlie’s personal growth class, she’s thrilled. Finally! A dead body! A dream come true! Teaming up with her friend Eli, she sets about finding the culprit, although it would be a lot easier if her cop boyfriend would help. Unfortunately he doesn’t seem so keen on Charlie chasing after yet another murderer.
And when Adam returns to town, things start to get a little… complicated.
Charlie might have trouble sticking to some of her resolutions this year
A fifties murders mystery set in Malaya from author of the ‘Crowner John’ books. - Arriving in Singapore, newly-qualified pathologist Tom Howden is still questioning his decision to sign on for three years in Her Majesty's Far East Land Forces. As he settles in, he discovers that his new home is a hotbed of scandal and intrigue. When an English planter is attacked one night, the finger of suspicion naturally points at local bandits, rather than a fellow Englishman. It soon becomes clear, however, that the situation is rather more complicated – and deadly – than it first appeared. Tom Howden’s newly-acquired forensic skills are about to be put to the ultimate test.
Jo Nesbo’s The Snowman is soon to be a major motion picture, starring Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, and J.K. Simmons.
“An elegant and complex thriller….Harrowingly beautiful.”
—New York Times Book Review
“A hugely impressive achievement—ambitious in scope, and skilled in execution.”
—Los Angeles Times
“The Redbreast certainly ranks with the best of current American crime fiction.”
No disrespect meant to Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, but Jo Nesbø, the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman, is the most exciting Scandinavian thriller writer in the crime fiction business. The Redbreast is a fabulous introduction to Nesbø’s tough-as-nails series protagonist, Oslo police detective Harry Hole. A brilliant and epic novel, breathtaking in its scope and design—winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel and selected as the best Norwegian crime novel ever written by members of Norway’s book clubs—The Redbreast is a chilling tale of murder and betrayal that ranges from the battlefields of World War Two to the streets of modern-day Oslo. Follow Hole as he races to stop a killer and disarm a ticking time-bomb from his nation’s shadowy past. Vogue magazine says that “nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller writer”…and nobody does it better than Jo Nesbø! James Patterson fans should also take note.
“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.”
--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)

Two separate crimes, two tragic outcomes.
Jacques Rouleau has moved to Kingston to look after his father and take up the position of head of the town’s Criminal Investigations Division. One hot week in late September, university student Leah Sampson is murdered in her apartment. In another corner of the city, Della Munroe is raped by her husband. At first the crimes appear unrelated, but as Sergeant Rouleau and his new team of officers dig into the women’s pasts, they discover unsettling coincidences. When Kala Stonechild, one of Rouleau’s former officers from Ottawa, suddenly appears in Kingston, Rouleau enlists her to help.
Stonechild isn’t sure if she wants to stay in Kingston, but agrees to help Rouleau in the short term. While she struggles with trying to decide if she can make a life in this new town, a ghost from her past starts to haunt her.
As the detectives delve deeper into the cases, it seems more questions pop up than answers. Who murdered Leah Sampson? And why does Della Monroe’s name keep showing up in the murder investigation? Both women were hiding secrets that have unleashed a string of violence. Stonechild and Rouleau race to discover the truth before the violence rips more families apart.
Good guy or bad guy?
I’m not sure which category Wilder falls under.
We met at a bar and things heated up pretty quickly. But my instinct told me to hit the brakes. I’ve been down this road before.
I’ve dated this kind of bad guy before.
Is Wilder different? Or is he far darker, far more mysterious, and far more criminal than I ever could have imagined.
