Der Dieb der süßen Dinge

Bastei Lübbe | Commissario Montalbano


Commissario Montalbano kann sich über einen Mangel an Arbeit nicht beklagen. Denn in Vigàta, dem malerischen Städtchen an der sizilianischen Küste, geschehen gleich zwei Morde: Auf einem Fischerboot wird während einer nächtlichen Ausfahrt ein Tunesier erschossen, und der sizilianische Geschäftsmann Lapecora wird im Aufzug seines Wohnhauses erstochen aufgefunden.

Die beiden Opfer haben, außer der Tatsache, daß sie tot sind, offensichtlich nichts gemeinsam. So scheint es zumindest. Bis Commissario Montalbano ein drittes "Verbrechen" aufklärt: Bei einer überraschenden Polizeiaktion ertappt er auf frischer Tat einen Dieb, der seit ein paar Tagen im Ort für Aufregung sorgt. Der geheimnisvolle Übeltäter bringt den Commissario auf die Spur der schönen Tunesierin Karima. Und eben diese, wie sich herausstellt in Vigàta nicht unbekannte Schöne, ist das was die beiden Morde miteinander verbindet ...

Cat and Mouse

Books We Love Ltd. | A Dr. Erica Merrill Mystery


A woman is shot dead while looking for her dog in a woodlot below her house. But local vet, Dr. Erica Merrill, who heard the shot, and her boyfriend Clay Caldwell, a deputy sheriff, don't think the killing was an accident, but that the wrong person was accidentally shot. When another attempt at murder is made, the police have two crimes with no suspects, and with no idea who was supposed to be murdered. The killer is furious at having shot the wrong person, the first episode in a grisly game of cat and mouse, where one player tries to trap the other, who succeeds in evading the deadly traps until the final resolution, which Erica tries to prevent.

---

Cat and Mouse was short-listed for the Dark Oak mystery contest.

A Novel Murder

BWL Publishing Inc.


Unexplained visions, murder and mayhem…that’s what Michelle’s life has come to, and she desperately wants out of her detective position to be behind her own desk, being the author she’s forced to conceal behind a pseudonym. Even though the fodder for her first book came from past cases, if she can just write her break-through novel under her real name, she’ll leave the force, switch her genre to romance, and pursue the relationship she wants with her hunky partner. His desire is evident, but fraternization on the job is forbidden, and she can’t gamble with the income she needs. Still, maybe those horrible visions seen through the killer’s eyes will go away for good if she’s no longer part of the local police department.

---

Short with a twist at the end but a romantic happy ending. I would recommend for a quick read. Tagalong

Country Justice

BWL Publishing Inc. | Southern Justice


What goes around comes around. That’s justice. Especially in small towns where everybody knows how many eggs you ate for breakfast before you've even left the Scales of Justice Café. Funny thing, though. Usually what everybody thinks they know—they really don’t. Take the folks in Turkey Creek. Oh, everybody knows Maggie Kincaid doesn’t speak to her father. They think they know why. But they don’t. They know Billy Brayton died twenty-five years back. Too bad nobody told him. Because now he’s home. And it’s time to right some past wrongs. Time for justice. Country Justice.

---

No One told Billy Brayton he had supposedly died 25 yrs ago, so it was quite a shock to the people of Turkey Creek when that Gray mustang comes flying over the hill Especially his old flame Maggie Kinkaid. If you think this is where the story follows a typical romantic story line, you are in for quite the ride.

Ten Days in Summer

BWL Publishing Inc. | A Paula Savard Mystery


Calgary, Alberta, gears up for its ten-day Stampede festival. When a hoarder dies in a suspicious house fire, adjuster Paula Savard sets the revelry aside to handle the property insurance claim. But Paula’s interviews with the hoarder’s bickering heirs raise questions. What are they hiding from each other and the police? Are they trying to help or to sabotage the investigation? Did one of them set the blaze to kill a relative and hasten an inheritance? The case turns personal when Paula’s daughter becomes involved with a suspect and moves into his home. If Paula learns the truth, she can ensure her daughter’s safety. While the police are occupied with keeping order during the Stampede, Paula digs through the hoarder’s life. She unearths betrayal, murder and a long-ago secret that led to his death. Exposing the truth would put Paula at risk, but free a troubled family.

---

Paula is an intelligent, determined, often critical (though in a good way) yet still compassionate sleuth, who is front and center in this mystery debut. She's a solidly developed character, one readers will want to get to know better, with an interesting supporting cast, which should serve her well in subsequent books. With possibly a new profession in hand, and her first case behind her, readers will look forward to seeing how she fares
