Summary

Just when I think things will finally get back to normal… 
 
Stop laughing! I really did think that.  
 
Thanks to a large dose of electricity, I’m shocking the crap out of everyone and everything, my cat runs from me, and my friends take bets on who can withstand the shocks when I touch them. To make matters worse, I’m stuck working a booth at a local Ren Fair with the Dungeons and Dragons crowd. 
 
But this year, someone is killing off the LARPers—and no magic spell or roll of the dice can bring them back. 
 
So here I am, in hundred-degree heat—in a costume that shows a lot more of me than anyone should see—with electricity I can’t control running through my body. All that and trying to wrangle in the ghosts of the victims—not my idea of a good time. 
 
And when my boyfriend and I are caught in the Dungeon Master’s maze, playing a deadly game may be the only way out.

    After Margaret Thatcher, Edwina Currie was the second most prominent woman in British politics during the 1980s. Indeed, she was often spoken of as a potential Prime Minister. Her outspokenness and her lively, media-friendly personality won her a much higher profile than her status as a junior minister would otherwise have commanded. When she was forced to resign from the government after warning of the danger signs of salmonella infection in eggs, she was already a national figure. Revealing her four-year affair with former Prime Minister John Major, Edwina's diaries caused a media sensation. A decade on, and now with previously unpublished material, the diaries still provide a remarkable insight into politics at the top by a writer with an observant eye and a sharp sense of humour. Edwina Currie's honesty, her frankness and her courage make these unexpurgated diaries an irresistible read.

    Psychoanalysts make the best detectives! When it comes to divining motives, deciphering ambiguous pronouncements, detecting delusions, and foiling the tricks memory plays, famed French analyst Jacques Lacan - turned self-proclaimed retired Inspector Quesjac Canal - is second to none (apologies to Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot, Edgar Allen Poe's Dupin, and Umberto Eco's William of Baskerville). Reluctantly drawn into helping hapless New York City police detectives with crimes reported by luminaries like Rolland Saalem, music director of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and involving prominent personages like Tobias Trickler, Mayor of New York City, and Sandra Errand, Vice-President for North American sales at YVEH Distributors of Spirits, Canal solves cases that are anything but what they appear to be and mends tears of the heart and soul at the same time.

    The Crossing by Michael Connelly | A 15-Minute Summary & Analysis
    
     
    Preview:
    
     
    Harry Bosch has unwillingly retired from the LAPD where he was a star detective for several decades. Mickey Haller, his half-brother, asks him to take an objective look at a case which has the media in a frenzy and Haller’s client, former gangbanger “Da’Quan”, tried and convicted on all sides long before the trial even takes place. At first Bosch flat out refuses to even consider the case, feeling it would be a betrayal of all his years on the LAPD force but quickly comes to the realization that if there is the slightest possibility Haller’s client is innocent then a murder is walking free with none the wiser.
    
     
    Throughout the novel, Bosch is seen questioning himself and his long-held beliefs about the roles of the police and the legal prosecution, versus the “dark side” of the law, the defense. Despite the introspection, Bosch never vacillates from his core value: put the right criminal behind bars for the crime they committed. Haller’s aim is to get his client’s arrest dismissed and is focused on spinning the facts of the case to fulfil that. Bosch, however, makes it clear to Haller and to himself that the truth is what matters and goes after it, letting the dice fall where it may – even if that means Da’Quan goes down.

    A museum exhibit celebrating the art of killing turns deadly in this “fiendishly clever pitch-black comedy” skewering the contemporary Italian art world (The Australian).Morris Duckworth has a dark past. Having married and murdered his way into a wealthy Italian family, he has become a respected member of Veronese business life. But it’s not enough.Never satisfied with being anything short of the best, Duckworth plans to put on the most exciting art exhibition of the decade, based on a subject close to his heart: killing. All the great slaughters of scripture and classical times will be on show, from Cain and Abel to Brutus and Caesar. But as Duckworth meets resistance from the director of Verona’s Castelvecchio museum, everything starts to unravel. His children are rebelling, his mistress is asking for more than he wants to give, his wife is increasingly attached to her aging confessor, and, worst of all, it’s getting harder to ignore the ghosts that swirl around. The shame of it is that Duckworth really did not want to have to kill again.Tim Parks’ acclaimed Duckworth trilogy has been thirty years in the making. In Painting Death, he brings it and his serial-killer alter ego to a very fitting—and very funny—end.“Duckworth is a worthy heir to a tradition of seductive, cultured literary monsters that include Humbert Humbert and Hannibal Lecter.” —The Sunday Times“Neatly written, full of calamitous moments in which the comedy is suddenly elbowed aside by genuine emotion.” —Spectator“Colorful, often amusing . . . Parks uses the museum intrigue to draw, as he has done in his more serious efforts, a vivid, impressionistic portrait of contemporary Italy.” —The New York Times
