Summary

A beautiful corpse. Zero clues. Peace in Castillac shattered once more. 

When another native of the French village is found dead, Molly and the gendarmes are stumped. Complicating matters, Ben is hired to defend Molly’s prime suspect. Uh oh, mixing romance with detective work can be a dangerous business…or at least, it can lead to some unsteady conclusions. 

Will Molly figure out where she’s gone wrong in time to nail the killer? Or will her scheme to unmask the murderer at Lawrence’s disco birthday party fall apart?

(This book was originally published as Red for Love.)

    A peculiar diamond sale pits Captain José Da Silva against his cousin It is an ancient scam: Offer a wealthy American a massive diamond for a bargain price, have a jeweler confirm the stone is genuine, and swap it for a fake as soon as the money changes hands. At first, Captain José Da Silva assumes Senator Hastings has been taken in by an ordinary conman, but the diamond is all too real. There is a more elaborate con in progress here, and only one man in Rio would be daring enough to execute it. He is Da Silva’s cousin Nestor, and he is a true genius of crime.   According to Nestor’s scheme, the senator was supposed to sail that afternoon on the Bolivar, along with three other targets of the plot. But Senator Hastings deviated from the plan and left the boat at the last minute, which means Da Silva still has a chance to set things right—assuming he’s quick enough to outwit his own flesh and blood.

    Three teenagers turn an idyllic summer vacation into a violent nightmare in this “compelling and unforgettable” novel by the bestselling author of The Blackboard Jungle (Harper’s). Bored, restless, privileged teenagers Sandy, David, and Peter meet while vacationing with their families on remote Greensward Island. The two boys, both sixteen, are immediately entranced by Sandy’s beauty and frank sexuality.   Over the course of the summer, the trio creates an illicit teenage paradise far removed from adult supervision. Stolen beers and lustful teasing lead to more nefarious games, however, when Rhoda appears. Shy, quiet, and unsophisticated, the fifteen-year-old desperately wants to fit in with her more glamorous peers. Her awkwardness brings out a vicious cruel streak in Sandy, who has David and Peter so tightly wrapped around her finger they’ll do whatever she wants—even if it means destroying an innocent life.   A fearless, unflinching portrait of youth gone wild, Last Summer was the basis for an Academy Award–nominated film starring Barbara Hershey, Bruce Davison, Richard Thomas, and Catherine Burns. Originally published in 1968 and heralded by Cosmopolitan as “the most chilling novel of this—or any—autumn,” Last Summer transforms a coming-of-age story into a dark and twisted fable and confirms Evan Hunter’s reputation as a master of suspense.

    Town festivals and art and craft fairs are popular all over the state of Kentucky. Many people cannot wait to attend one in their area, and some even travel a few miles to take in one most fall weekends.  Some leave with bargains and new, treasured items.  But most who attend don't stumble upon a dead body in the process. 
    When Lt. Dekker and Sgt. Murdock, Hilldale, Kentucky's only homicide detectives, are coerced into attending the Hilldale Art & Craft Fair with their girlfriends, they too find treasured items, but they also find Hilldale's latest murder victim, one of the vendors. They soon find that a couple of other vendors had some problems with the man, as well as a couple of locals who attended the art and craft fair. Is the murderer a jealous vendor who claims the victim stole his idea, the vendor set up next to the murder victim who claims the victim ruined some of his merchandise, a disgruntled customer, a local known for not being able to control his temper, or someone else? The two detectives drive all over the county and travel to several other Kentucky towns looking for information that might help them solve the murder.
