Summary

Eighteen-year-old Tanzania Grey has carefully crafted a new life for herself. She’s established an identity as a champion endurance racer, with a steady job at a zoo, a home and a housemate, and more animals to care for than she ever counted on. 
But she can never forget the night four years ago that changed her life, when shadowy figures murdered her family and pursued her down dark alleys. Only one friend in the whole world knows her secrets, but disturbing internet messages hint that someone suspects that she is really Amelia Robinson. When Tana is invited to participate in an extreme Ski to Sea race in Bellingham, Washington, she vows to return to her home town to uncover whatever clues she can find, even though she may be running right into a deadly trap.

    A quartet of kidnappers make the mistake of hiring Da Silva as their driver Chico Xavier needs cash. His father has cut off his allowance, and for a university student with expensive taste—and an even more expensive girlfriend—this is a death sentence. And so he and his friends arrange to kidnap one of their school chums: a fellow dilettante who lets himself be taken in exchange for a cut of the ransom. Two days of criminal behavior, Chico thinks, and they’ll all live happily ever after—or die in the Rio sand. To store the victim of their faked kidnapping, Chico’s girlfriend pays a taxi driver for the use of his house. But the driver is no ordinary cabbie—he is Captain José Da Silva of Interpol. He can’t tell if Chico’s scheme will turn out to be tragedy or farce, and so he plays along, hoping to save the kidnappers from themselves.

    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.

    1.A tightly plotted, short crime novel (230 pages) set in contemporary Buenos Aires. An architect in a marriage and career crisis finds his life transformed with the arrival of a young woman in his office. She is living in the apartment of Nelso Jara, a blackmailer murdered and buried in the foundations of a building finished twenty years before. No one wants the murder revealed, or the blackmail to resume.2. As usual for Piñeiro, the novel is more than a mystery story: it has all the markings of the genre--page-turner pacing, short breathless sentences. But Piñeiro's reveals the things hidden behind the facades of our existence; human relationships based on habit and cowardice, rather than love; on excessive ambition and personal gain, rather than morality. 3. The third  novel by Claudia Piñeiro published by Bitter Lemon Press, to follow on the success of Thursday Night Widows, which was made into a film  by Argentine New Wave director Marcelo Piñeyro, and the critically acclaimed All Yours.4. The author has won the Clarin Prize and is South America’s bestselling crime novelist (selling over 250,000 copies per title). She is translated in French, Italian and German.

    A decidedly un-Bond-like British spy outwits the Soviets—and his bosses—in this thriller from a multimillion-selling author that offers “pure delight” (Chicago Tribune).  Charlie Muffin is an anachronism. He came into the intelligence service in the early 1950s, when the government, desperate for foot soldiers in the impending Cold War, dipped into the middle class for the first time. Despite a lack of upper-class bearing, Charlie survived twenty-five years on the espionage battle’s front line: Berlin. But times have changed: The boys from Oxford and Cambridge are running the shop again, and they want to get rid of the middle-class spy who’s a thorn in their side. They have decided that it’s time for Charlie to be sacrificed. But Charlie Muffin didn’t survive two decades in Berlin by being a pushover. He intends to go on protecting the realm, and won’t let anyone from his own organization get in his way. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
