Summary

For twenty years Jack McCall swore he would never return to his home town. Now, at the urging of his doctor to take a significant step in his alcohol recovery program, and to help ensure the success of his second marriage, he must return to Caldwell, Oregon, to face the people and the memories that kick-started his drinking. His high school class reunion would provide the perfect cover for keeping a low profile while he was in town. With his wife Mollie at his side he could vanquish the personal demons that awaited him, reconnect with a few old friends, and leave town healed. After all, it was just a small-town high school reunion ─ a celebration. What could go wrong? 
Jack and Mollie arrive from the east coast in their restored private airplane hoping for a casual visit, but Jack soon learns that events of the past that fueled his guilt and drove him away were not what they had seemed. A catalytic conversation with a classmate morphs their mission from inner healing to investigation, and finally, to confrontation, as they navigate a maze of clues and complex characters, ranging from the city’s finest citizens to an international assassin. Jack is driven to find the truth about the girl’s death, with the hope that it might rid him of his guilt. Their mission is further complicated by Jack’s need to stay sober and their mutual need to laugh, to love, and to cherish their moments together, which is hard to do when someone is trying to kill you.

    For sixty years Jewish refugees and their descendants have prospered in the Federal District of Sitka, a "temporary" safe haven created in the wake of the Holocaust and the shocking 1948 collapse of the fledgling state of Israel. The Jews of the Sitka District have created their own little world in the Alaskan panhandle, a vibrant and complex frontier city that moves to the music of Yiddish. But now the District is set to revert to Alaskan control, and their dream is coming to an end.  
    Homicide detective Meyer Landsman of the District Police has enough problems without worrying about the upcoming Reversion. His life is a shambles, his marriage a wreck, his career a disaster. And in the cheap hotel where Landsman has washed up, someone has just committed a murder—right under his nose. When he begins to investigate the killing of his neighbor, a former chess prodigy, word comes down from on high that the case is to be dropped immediately, and Landsman finds himself contending with all the powerful forces of faith, obsession, evil, and salvation that are his heritage. 
    At once a gripping whodunit, a love story, and an exploration of the mysteries of exile and redemption, The Yiddish Policemen's Union is a novel only Michael Chabon could have written.

And when I finished, I had to look up Olivia Hampshire in Amazon and on Google to find out who this lady was and to find out where I could find more of her work. Now I am loaded up with House of Romance Books. I can't wait for more.”

    From opposite perspectives, two master authors spin a chilling taleNick’s father is a stand-up Irishman—once a cop, now a security guard in the World Trade Center’s North Tower—but Nick does not take after his old man. He’s “got the bad drop,” meaning he only cares about booze, violence, and getting into trouble with his best friend, Todd, a low-level hood connected to the Boston mob. Todd inducts Nick into the world of petty crime. What starts as a bit of good fun—robbing apartments, scoring weed—turns serious as Todd gets closer to the inner circle. He may not love violence as much as Nick does, but he’s about to get more than his fair share. The first collaboration by beloved mystery authors Ken Bruen and Reed Farrel Coleman, Tower is as uncompromisingly brutal as the work that made them famous. They each tell the story once—Bruen from Nick’s perspective, and Coleman from Todd’s. Their narratives hinge on a single, blistering question: How can friendship survive in an underworld built on pain?
