Tv-sarja Epäillyt uuden mysteerin kimpussa!

Kadonnut morsio, kateellinen sisko, morsiusneidon kihlaava sulhanen - kenen omatunto kolkuttaa, kun televisiokamerat käynnistyvät?

Amanda Pierce on menossa naimisiin. Juuri ennen hääseremoniaa hän kuitenkin katoaa. Viisi vuotta myöhemmin Amandan äiti pyytää Laurie Morania tutkimaan tapausta. Laurien tv-sarja Epäillyt on ennenkin onnistunut ratkaisemaan selvittämättä jääneitä rikoksia, viimeksi sensaatiomaisen Tuhkimomurhan. Sikäli kuin kyseessä on rikos. Juorumylly jauhaa kiivaasti, ja jokaisella tuntuu olevan oma käsityksensä tapahtumista. Vain yksi asia on varmaa: kuka ikinä Amandan katoamisesta onkin vastuussa, aikoo pitää suunsa supussa. Niin myötä- kuin vastoinkäymisissä.

Mary Higgins Clark (s. 1929) tunnetaan Amerikassa arvonimellä "Jännityksen kuningatar". Hän pitää kunnia-asianaan tarjoilla kauhua hyvin annosteltuna ja kauniisti katettuna.

Neljäs Hilja Ilveskero -dekkari!

Henkivartija Hilja Ilveskero saa toimeksiannon suojella vaateteollisuudessa omaisuutensa luonutta 92-vuotiasta liikenaista Lovisa Johnsonia. Kuka on yrittänyt murhata Lovisan?

Hilja matkaa Lovisan Raaseporissa sijaitsevaan sukukartanoon Loberg Gårdiin. Lapsettomalta Lovisalta on tiedossa suuri perintö, jota kärkkyvät hänen sisarensa Olivian lapsenlapset: kansainvälisissä avustustehtävissä kunnostautunut lääkäri Johannes, arktisen öljynporauksen lobbarina Venäjällä toimiva Raisa, näkijäksi itseään kutsuva Aurora ja vartija Sampo, joka kokee Hiljan astuvan tontilleen. Ja kuka on Sergeiksi esittäytyvä mies, joka ilmestyy Lobergiin hakemaan turvapaikkaa?

Niin Hilja kuin Lovisakin huomaavat, että ihmishenki on halpa silloin kun kyseessä ovat suuret ja häikäilemättömät pelurit. Vaistonsa varassa toimiva Hilja saa tehdä kaikkensa, kun menneisyys ja nykyisyys sekoittuvat.

Tiikerinsilmä yhdistää kartanomysteerin ja kansainvälisen trillerin Hilja Ilveskerolle tyypilliseen vinoon huumoriin. Se on itsenäinen jatko-osa kansainvälisestikin menestyneelle Henkivartija-trilogialle, jonka jatkoa lukijat ovat kiihkeästi toivoneet.

Suomen suosituimpiin kirjailijoihin kuuluva Leena Lehtolainen tunnetaan erityisesti Maria Kallio ja Hilja Ilveskero -romaaneistaan. Hän on kirjoittanut myös useita dramaattisia perhe- ja avioliittoromaaneja.

Hilja Ilveskero -sarjassa ovat ilmestyneet: 1. Henkivartija, 2. Oikeuden jalopeura, 3. Paholaisen pennut, 4. Tiikerinsilmä

Featuring an exclusive introduction from the beloved, bestselling “Queen of Suspense,” the Mary Higgins Clark Sampler includes bonus original pieces and 10 excerpts from reader favorites, such as Where Are The Children, Daddy's Little Girl, Two Little Girls In Blue, All Around the Town, and Pretend You Don't See Her, plus an extended excerpt from her new book, Daddy's Gone A Hunting.

Never before have readers been able to sample 10 blockbuster works of Mary Higgins Clark in one package. Delve into fan favorites, such as Where Are The Children, Daddy's Little Girl, All Around the Town, and Pretend You Don't See Her, plus an extended teaser of her new mystery thriller, Daddy's Gone A Hunting. Each excerpt comes with an original introduction by the author explaining the inspiration for the book.

In her latest novel, Mary Higgins Clark exposes a dark secret from a family’s past that threatens the lives of two sisters, Kate and Hannah Connelly, when the family-owned furniture firm in Long Island City, founded by their grandfather and famous for its fine reproductions of antiques, explodes into flames in the middle of the night, leveling the buildings to the ground, including the museum where priceless antiques have been on permanent display for years.

The ashes reveal a startling and grisly discovery and provoke a host of suspicions and questions. Was the explosion deliberately set? What was Kate—tall, gorgeous, blond, a CPA for one of the biggest accounting firms in the country, and sister of a rising fashion designer—doing in the museum when it burst into flames? Why was Gus, a retired and disgruntled craftsman, with her at that time of night?

Now Gus is dead, and Kate lies in the hospital badly injured and in a coma, so neither can tell what drew them there, or what the tragedy may have to do with the hunt for a young woman missing for many years, nor can they warn that somebody may be covering his tracks, willing to kill to save himself.
Now, in one eBook boxed set, a collection of suspenseful and humorous holiday stories by Mary Higgins Clark, America’s Queen of Suspense, and her daughter, bestselling mystery writer Carol Higgins Clark.

Deck the Halls

Three days before Christmas, Regan Reilly, the dynamic young sleuth featured in the novels of Carol Higgins Clark, meets Alvirah Meehan, the famous lottery winner and amateur detective. When a call comes through on Regan's cell phone, telling her that her father and his driver, Rosita Gonzalez, are being held for $1,000,000 ransom, Alvirah insists that Regan allow her to lend a hand in trying to gain their release. While Regan may be a licensed private detective, based in Los Angeles, Alvirah has many valuable contacts among the ranks of New York's law enforcement community -- including the head of the NYPD Major Case Squad, Jack “no relation” Reilly.

Further complicating the situation is the fact that Regan's mother, the popular and very successful mystery writer Nora Regan Reilly, was hospitalized only the day before with a badly broken leg. Regan must comfort her while trying to meet the harsh demands of her father's kidnappers -- and their tough deadline.

The Christmas Thief

The folks who picked a beautiful eighty-foot blue spruce from Stowe, Vermont, to be Rockefeller Center’s famous Christmas tree don’t have a clue that Packy Noonan, a scam artist just released from prison, hid priceless diamonds in it more than twelve years ago. Anxious to retrieve his loot, Packy breaks parole and heads to Vermont. When he learns that his special tree will be heading to New York City the next morning, he knows he has to act fast.

What Packy doesn’t know is that Alvirah Meehan, everyone’s favorite lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and Regan Reilly, a savvy young private investigator, are visiting Stowe with their friend Opal, who lost all her lottery winnings in Packy’s scam. And just when they’re supposed to head home, they learn that the tree is missing . . . and that Opal has disappeared.

Dashing Through the Snow

In the picturesque village of Branscombe, New Hampshire, the townsfolk are all pitching in to prepare for the first (and many hope annual) Festival of Joy. The night before the festival begins, a group of employees at the local market learn that they have won $160 million in the lottery. One of their co-workers, Duncan, decided at the last minute, on the advice of a pair of crooks masquerading as financial advisers, not to play. Then he goes missing. A second winning lottery ticket was purchased in the next town, but the winner hasn't come forward. Could Duncan have secretly bought it?

Alvirah Meehan, the amateur sleuth, and private investigator Regan Reilly -- have arrived in Branscombe for the festival. They are just the people to find out what is amiss. As they dig beneath the surface, they find that life in Branscombe is not as tranquil as it appears. So much for an old-fashioned weekend in the country!
In The Lost Years, Mary Higgins Clark, America’s Queen of Suspense, has written her most astonishing novel to date. At its center is a discovery that, if authenticated, may be the most revered document in human history—“the holiest of the holy”—and certainly the most coveted and valuable object in the world.

Biblical scholar Jonathan Lyons believes he has found the rarest of parchments—a letter that may have been written by Jesus Christ. Stolen from the Vatican Library in the 1500s, the letter was assumed to be lost forever.

Now, under the promise of secrecy, Jonathan is able to confirm his findings with several other experts. But he also confides in a family friend his suspicion that someone he once trusted wants to sell the parchment and cash in.

Within days Jonathan is found shot to death in his study. At the same time, his wife, Kathleen, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, is found hiding in the study closet, incoherent and clutching the murder weapon. Even in her dementia, Kathleen has known that her husband was carrying on a long-term affair. Did Kathleen kill her husband in a jealous rage, as the police contend? Or is his death tied to the larger question: Who has possession of the priceless parchment that has now gone missing?

It is up to their daughter, twenty-eight-year-old Mariah, to clear her mother of murder charges and unravel the real mystery behind her father’s death. Mary Higgins Clark’s The Lost Years is at once a breathless murder mystery and a hunt for what may be the most precious religious and archaeological treasure of all time.
