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.

    Stone Barrington only wants a winter getaway from the chill of New York in the beautiful, tropical Caribbean paradise of St. Mark's. But what the lawyer and ex-cop gets instead is the chance to defend Allison Manning. The beautiful young woman stands accused of killing her rich husband on board their luxurious yacht and then burying him at sea. 
    Stone isn't exactly conversant with the island country's law, but this much is clear to him: Allison is being railroaded by the perverse sense of justice of a prosecutor who will do anything to stay in office. Donning the robe and wig of a British barrister, Stone does everything he can to save Allison—from publicizing the case all over the American press to conducting the kind of smart, tough investigation that money can't buy. Just when he has the jury in the palm of his hands, a shocking reversal of fortune changes everything. And what was once a sure thing begins to look a lot like a death sentence.

    A mystery set in Victorian England by the New York Times–bestselling author whose “novels attain the societal sweep of Trollope or Thackeray” (Booklist, starred review).  When her mother asks her help in finding a lost locket with a compromising picture, neither Charlotte Pitt, nor her mother, has any idea that the locket may be at the center of a bizarre chain of events leading to murder. Arriving at her mother’s home at Rutland Place, Charlotte discovers that other residents of the exclusive neighborhood have also suffered similar small thefts. It all appears quite mild as crimes go—a light-fingered servant, perhaps. That is, until Mina Spencer-Brown, a woman known for her prying, is poisoned and dies. Inspector Thomas Pitt quickly surmises that Mina’s snooping might have led to her murder, but what secrets had she stumbled upon? And whose?  As Pitt patiently struggles to break down the protective silence of high-born neighbors, Charlotte works behind the closed doors of society’s drawing rooms to help unravel a mystery that reveals sordid secrets and the chilling, dark corners of human behavior.

    “Well-drawn characters, including a lead capable of sustaining a long series, complement the clever plot”Publishers Weekly Starred Review  Reverend Mother Aquinas is asked to prove a young man’s innocence in the second of this atmospheric new Irish historical mystery series.   
    
    Ireland. 1924. Reverend Mother Aquinas is buying buttered eggs in the Cork city market at the very moment when the city engineer, James Doyle, is assassinated. Although no one saw the actual killing, a young reporter named Sam O’Mahoney is found standing close to the body, a pistol in his hand, and is arrested and charged.  
    Following a desperate appeal from Sam’s mother, convinced of her son’s innocence, the Reverend Mother investigates – and, in this turbulent, war-torn city, uncovers several other key suspects. Could there be a Republican connection? Was James Doyle’s death linked to his corrupt practices in the rebuilding of the city, burned down more than a year ago by the Black and Tans? Cork is a city divided by wealth and by politics: this murder seems to have links to both.
