Détails: BONUS: This edition contains excerpts from Anne Perry's Treason at Lisson Grove and Execution Dock. For Superintendent Thomas Pitt, the sight of the dead man riding the morning tide of the Thames is unforgettable. The corpse lies in a battered punt drifting through the early mist, clad in a torn green gown and bestrewn with flowers. Pitt’s determined search for answers to the victim’s identity leads him deep into London’s bohemia—to the theatre where beautiful Cecily Antrim is outraging society with her bold portrayal of a modern woman, and into studios where masters of light and shadow are experimenting with the fascinating new art of photography. But only Pitt’s masterly investigative skills enable him to identify the wildfire passions raging through this tragedy of good and evil, to hunt down the guilty and protect the innocent.

Détails: First dubbed San Benito and then “Spanishtown,” Half Moon Bay is a coastside town with a long and intriguing story. Many know it for its lovely natural surroundings, quaint downtown architecture, and relaxed atmosphere, but not many people know that this town was the first to be established in San Mateo County as a result of 1840s land grants to early Spanish settlers. Isolated on the coast for a time, it became home to Mexican, Chilean, Italian, Portuguese, and other cultures after the 1850s, when roads finally reached over the mountains. During the 20th century, a wide variety of businesses thrived here, as people arrived by road, water, and even railroad. Farms, churches, schools, businesses, and homes sprang up, and the town modernized, though today’s Half Moon Bay looks much like it did 100 years ago.

An ID Book Club Selection Clay Edison has his hands full. He’s got a new baby who won't sleep. He’s working the graveyard shift. And he’s trying, for once, to mind his own business. Then comes the first call. Workers demolishing a local park have made a haunting discovery: the decades-old skeleton of a child. But whose? And how did it get there? No sooner has Clay begun to investigate than he receives a second call—this one from a local businessman, wondering if the body could belong to his sister. She went missing fifty years ago, the man says. Or at least I think she did. It’s a little complicated. And things only get stranger from there. Clay’s relentless search for answers will unearth a history of violence and secrets, revolution and betrayal. Because in this town, the past isn’t dead. It’s very much alive. And it can be murderous.

Détails: St. Ives goes to London on a job for the least trustworthy con artist he knows Philip St. Ives has only been in the pub a few minutes before he realizes his whiskey is drugged. Instantly sick, he’s vomiting on the sidewalk when the muggers appear. He fights as best he can in his drugged state, and only when he feels the handcuffs does he realize his assailants aren’t muggers—they’re cops. He wakes in a dingy cell to the knowledge that English Eddie Apex has pulled a fast one on him. English Eddie is not English, but talks with a British accent that once made him New York’s most refined con artist. In retirement and living in London, he had hired St. Ives—a professional mediator between crooks and their marks—to come to England to help him recover a stolen painting. The drugged whiskey won’t be the last surprise St. Ives gets in Blighty, and the police won’t be the only ones who try to cause him pain.

Détails: In volume one of Henry Buckberry's stories (Get Poor Now, Avoid the Rush), we followed Henry from his early childhood in central North Dakota to the dark, dangerous woods of northern Wisconsin. Get Poor Now concluded in September of 1933, with Henry about to survey the devastation of a forest fire that almost burned up his log shack. A Windfall Homestead takes us into the next two decades of Henry's productive, energetic life, as he logs and hunts, clears land for farming, marries, has children, builds a new barn and house from windfall lumber. Henry's life exemplifies the fate of an essentially preindustrial rural culture about to be overwhelmed by post-World War II technology with its comprehensive commercial "culture" extruded by fossil fuel affluence. Henry's was not so much the "greatest" generation as it was the last unself-conscious rural subsistence generation of European heritage. These stories, all told in Henry's voice, were taken down shortly before Henry's death in 2009 by Henry's son Charles Darwin Buckberry, also known as C. D. or Seedy Buckberry. Seedy claims these stories are accurate and true. Readers are advised to suspend their civilized disbelief.

Détails: Charlie McCabe and his best friend Lonnie Horowitz had often talked about scuba diving. Now with enough money in their accounts to cover more than expenses, the decision was made. After graduating from their course, the two young men meet an American couple that are just as enthusiastic about diving as they are. Meeting up at the parking lot for access to the beaches at Half Moon Bay and the south end of Wreck Bay, they soon find that someone has a grudge. Why, they don’t know, but after the second incident happens, they decide to find out. After they start diving in the bay, they are amazed at their discovery of parts of a sailboat mast. Investigating further they find old boards buried a couple of feet under the mud, on the bottom of the bay. Using the time between tides, they dig at the mud, until they find a hatchway. The excitement grows as they prepare to dive as a group, and discover what may be found inside the old wrecked hull.

Détails: “An eerie, tense, and finely written novel…Readers will grip their chairs” (SFGate.com) as they try to unravel this tale of psychological suspense from the award-winning New York Times bestselling author of Turn of Mind. Jane loses everything when her teenage daughter is killed in a senseless accident. Devastated, she manages to make one tiny stab at a new life: she moves from San Francisco to the seaside town of Half Moon Bay. Jane is inconsolable, and yet, as the months go by, she is able to cobble together some version of a job, of friends, of the possibility of peace. And then, children begin to disappear. And soon, Jane sees her own pain reflected in all the parents in the town. She wonders if she will be able to live through the aching loss, the fear all around her. And as the disappearances continue, she begins to see that what her neighbors are wondering is if it is Jane herself who has unleashed the horror of loss. Alice LaPlante’s “well-crafted novel of psychological suspense” is a chilling story about a mother haunted by her past, a “brooding suspense novel…dark, starkly beautiful…LaPlante uses a seductively dangerous landscape to mirror her heroine’s inner life” (Kirkus Reviews).

Détails: 'There was a rumour, too, that he was a devil-worshipper, or something of that sort, and also that he had the evil eye...' Arthur Conan Doyle was the greatest genre writer Britain has ever produced. Throughout a long writing career, he drew on his own medical background, his travels, and his increasing interest in spiritualism and the occult to produce a spectacular array of Gothic Tales. Many of Doyle's writings are recognised as the very greatest tales of terror. They range from hauntings in the polar wasteland to evil surgeons and malevolent jungle landscapes. This collection brings together over thirty of Conan Doyle's best Gothic Tales. Darryl Jones's introduction discusses the contradictions in Conan Doyle's very public life - as a medical doctor who became obsessed with the spirit world, or a British imperialist drawn to support Irish Home Rule - and shows the ways in which these found articulation in that most anxious of all literary forms, the Gothic.

Détails: Two novels of sizzling romantic suspense set in the steamy Florida Keys from a New York Times–bestselling author who “always entertains” (Heather Graham). In one volume, two gripping novels from Meryl Sawyer, who “writes romantic suspense that keeps you turning pages with lightning speed” (New York Times–bestselling author Kristin Hannah). Half Moon Bay: Her safety in the witness protection program suddenly compromised, Amy Conroy is on the run until a car accident lands her in a Key West Hospital. When she’s mistaken for the dead driver, Amy undergoes reconstructive surgery and steps into the strange woman’s identity—and a passionate and risky relationship with a handsome investigative journalist. But her new life as Shelly Ralston is much more treacherous than she bargained for, and a madman with murder in mind has his eye on her. Thunder Island: A dedicated member of Miami’s K9 search-and-rescue unit, Jennifer Whitmore is in Key West for an antiterrorism unit when she finds herself face-to-face with the man she once loved. The unexpected reunion awakens a desire they’d both thought long dead, complicating the task at hand when the pair must join forces to rescue a missing child. Neither of them anticipates the twisted tangle of lies they will uncover at an elite resort—or the disturbing secrets someone will kill to keep.

Détails: From beyond the grave, Fu-Manchu reaches out to destroy the world When Dr. Petrie saw a bullet enter the skull of the fiendish mastermind Fu-Manchu, he assumed England had nothing more to fear from the evil genius. But Nayland Smith knows that whatever became of the devil doctor, the sinister organization he served will go on trying to conquer the world. Sir Gregory Hale, erstwhile attaché to the British Embassy in Peking, might be the key to foiling the Si-Fan. Just back from a six-month expedition to the Gobi Desert, Hale is holed up in a London hotel and refuses to see anyone but Smith. Ten minutes before the Burmese commissioner reaches him, Hale is struck dumb by a deadly poison. In his final seconds, he manages to scratch out a warning: “Guard my diary. . . . Tibetan frontier . . . Key of India. Beware man . . . with the limp.” Those last words, and the brass box Hale brought back with him from Mongolia, are the only ammunition Smith and Petrie have in their fight against an army more powerful than any the world has ever known. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
