Summary

Set in eleventh-century London and Normandy and in the present day, Tapestry tells the story of the origin of the famous and enigmatic Bayeux Tapestry. Told from the point of view of two women who lived nine centuries apart: Leofgyth, an eleventh-century embroiderer who works in the court of Edward the Confessor, and Madeleine, a twenty-first century professor of Medieval History. Between them, the dramatic story of the end of Saxon England unfolds and an ancient mystery is solved.

    Omaha’s finest are baffled and the city is on edge following a rash of brutal murders of women, all killed in similar fashion. Local law enforcement believes a misogynistic killer is in their midst.  
    With little to go on, the central police department requests assistance from the Serial Crimes Unit of the FBI. Agents Jade Monroe and J.T. Harper are tasked to fly to Omaha and lend a hand. 
    Without any leads, the investigation stalls until a chance meeting between Jade and a stranger with memorable blue eyes turns the entire case on its ear. With the killer quickly losing patience, the investigation takes a turn for the worse. Not only are more of the city’s ladies being targeted, but now Jade Monroe is on the killer’s radar too.

    Editorial Review: 
    "When police in Omaha, Nebraska, find themselves looking for a serial killer, FBI Agent Jade Monroe and her partner, J.T., are assigned to help with the case. Viciously attacked bodies, most of them female, keep turning up at homes listed with Scenic View Realty, and the agents can’t figure out why. Sutter’s terrific plotting will keep readers guessing whether the quick-witted killer will ever be found. Her pacing has never been better, and those who enjoy a chilling and clever thriller will savor this one.” Angela M., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

    Amateur sleuth Charlie Davies is back again, and this time she's taking on a Russian gangster. Maybe. 
    Charlie's boss, the less-than-friendly Adam Baxter, has received information that local club owner Lonny Lionel is, in fact, an escaped foreign criminal - but that's not the kind of thing you can just come out and ask someone. Adam wouldn't normally ask Charlie to help him (she's not exactly his star employee), but she happens to have an 'in' - her friend is dating the man in question. 
    As if that's not enough to deal with, James McKenzie - Charlie's on-again, off-again worst enemy - is being strangely friendly towards her, and now her other nemesis (her former best friend, Celia) is back on the scene, looking to befriend her too. If she doesn't watch out, Charlie is going to run out of adversaries. 
    Oh, apart from that gangster she's spying on, who will torture and murder her if he finds out what she's doing. (If he actually does turn out to be a criminal, that is.) 
    When she stumbles upon a dead body at a local construction site, Charlie starts to think that this time she might be in over her head. 
    Not that it would be that hard - she is pretty short.

    The legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of the great tales of American folklore, supposedly stemming from Washington Irving's famous short story. But what if there was more to the ghostly fable than meets the eye? What if Irving's account was based on fact? And what if the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow was not unique, but merely one of a strange line of malevolent spirits sighted across the world, bringing misfortune to all that witness them? Within this book you will find long-forgotten lore about the headless spirits that have plagued mankind for centuries, and perhaps even now seek ingress into our world. The Headless Horseman, and others like him, is at large in the dark places of the world, and should one encounter such a revenant, it is said that tragedy will surely follow…

    A “suspenseful . . . welcome debut” mystery set in New Orleans (The Washington Post Book World).   When a disturbing series of murder-suicides terrorizes the Big Easy, young NOPD criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn is eager to take the case and prove her mettle. She discovers some bizarre connections between the perpetrators: They all share the same blood type, drive old cars, and reportedly hummed a nursery rhyme before committing their grisly acts.   As she uncovers the scope of the crimes, Franklyn turns to Andy Broussard, the chief medical examiner whose love of the truth is matched only by his love of New Orleans cuisine. Together, they follow a dangerous trail that leads into the Crescent City’s dark past, and an old Cajun curse that seems to have returned with a vengeance. Now Broussard and Franklyn need to fight off some very bad juju, or their partnership may end before it begins.   This first mystery featuring Broussard and Franklyn is a “fast-paced thriller” that “won’t be easily put down” (The Commercial Appeal, Memphis).
