“Jessica Fletcher meets Groucho Marx!”—RT BookReviews

A shocking crime of passion has Bakerhaven buzzing!

The Puzzle Lady gets more than she bargained for when she’s hired to track down Paula Martindale’s straying husband. She finds him, all right—hacked to pieces on his living room rug, while his blood-drenched wife haunts the crime scene clutching a butcher knife.

It’s a tough spot for attractive young attorney Becky Baldwin. Paula is presumed innocent until proven guilty, but try to find one juror who’s going to think so.

It’s up to Cora to find the evidence to save the day. She has just two problems: She’s a witness for the prosecution, and every bit of evidence she finds in Paula’s favor, from crossword puzzles to Sudoku to alibi witnesses, tends to indicate that Cora herself is the killer!

Llibre 46
Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death, by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art...

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”

A haunting scream floated on the breath of a hot summer breeze. The mournful cry echoed throughout the bayou while the willowy limbs of the Spanish moss swayed in its wake.


Clarice Bordelon is a journalist at The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans. When her sister goes missing no one will listen - not even her husband. An insensitive remark by a policeman prompts her to research missing women of a certain socioeconomic status and color. The results are staggering. The deeper she digs the more she realizes her city has a huge problem and it’s not new, it goes back years.


Armed with this new information she tries in vain to convince the authorities to launch a search. Worse, she’s labeled a conspiracy theorist. Clarice fights back the only way she knows how, by writing a series of articles to share her newfound knowledge. In doing so she attracts the attention of the one person she’d warned the city about. Now that his work’s been revealed the killer is eager to share more with the author herself.


Homicide Detective Jesse Thomas is in New Orleans to attend a conference. He’s brought Meagan McInnis with the intention of turning a business trip into a romantic holiday. Then fate intervenes. They meet up with his old friend, Andre Bordelon and his wife, Clarice. The women hit it off instantly and make plans for multiple excursions.


The following evening Thomas runs into a man he’d met in San Diego during the SANDMAN investigation, Homicide Detective Beau Chase who’s recently moved back to NOLA. He’s landed a case involving a serial killer and asks Thomas to lend a hand.


Clarice shares with Meagan a grisly experience that happened recently. Then their private swamp tour takes a horrifying turn into a hellish nightmare. Not believing in coincidence, Detective Chase delves into the journalist’s past and finds she’s all but drawn a map for a psychotic lunatic to follow her every move.


Now Thomas and Chase must race against time to catch the elusive killer who’s hidden in the shadows for decades.
