SYNOPSIS : Bestselling author Del Quentin Wilber tells the inside story of how a homicide squad---a dedicated, colorful team of detectivesโ€”does its almost impossible job Twelve homicides, three police-involved shootings and the furious hunt for an especially brutal killer--February 2013 was a good month for murder in suburban Washington, D.C. After gaining unparalleled access to the homicide unit in Prince George's County, which borders the nation's capital, Del Quentin Wilber begins shadowing the talented, often quirky detectives who get the call when a body falls. After a quiet couple of months, all hell breaks loose: suddenly every detective in the squad is scrambling to solve one shooting and stabbing after another. Meanwhile, the entire unit is obsessed with a stone-cold "red ball," a high-profile case involving a seventeen-year-old honor student attacked by a gunman who kicked down the door to her house and shot her in her bed. Murder is the police investigator's ultimate crucible: to solve a killing, a detective must speak for the dead. More than any recent book, A Good Month for Murder shows what it takes to succeed when the stakes couldn't possibly be higher.

SYNOPSIS : New York Times Bestseller: The โ€œfascinatingโ€ true story of John Dale Cavaness, a much-admired Illinois doctorโ€”and the cold-blooded killer of his own son (The Washington Post). Fusing the narrative power of an award-winning novelist and the detailed research of an experienced investigator, author Darcy Oโ€™Brien unfolds the story of Dr. John Dale Cavaness, the southern Illinois physician and surgeon charged with the murder of his son Sean in December 1984. Outraged by the arrest of the skilled medical practitioner who selflessly attended to their needs, the people of Little Egypt, as the natives call their region, rose to his defense. But during the subsequent trial, a radically different, disquieting portrait of Dr. Cavaness would emerge. Throughout the three decades that he enjoyed the admiration and respect of his community, Cavaness was privately terrorizing his family, abusing his employees, and making disastrous financial investments. As more and more grisly details of the Cavaness case come to stark Midwestern light in Oโ€™Brienโ€™s chilling account, so too does the hidden gothic underside of rural America and its heritage of violence and blood. โ€œA meticulous account . . . An implicit indictment of a culture that condones and encourages violent behavior in men.โ€ โ€”The New York Times Book Review โ€œA fascinating story, and Darcy Oโ€™Brien does a great job of structuring it for suspense.โ€ โ€”The Washington Post โ€œRiveting.โ€โ€”Publishers Weekly โ€œA terrifying story of family violence and the community that honored the perpetrator.โ€ โ€”Kirkus Reviews โ€œStunning material . . . Handled with justice and fastidiousness by a natural storyteller.โ€ โ€”Seamus Heaney, winner of the Nobel Prize

SYNOPSIS : November in Battle Lake, Minnesota, is cold enough to freeze the balls off a pool table. lt's also deer hunting season. When Tom Kicker is killed in a hunting accident, Mira James is hired to investigateโ€”a job that brings her closer to a P.I. license. Braving subzero temps and shrieking blizzards, Mira uncovers a decades-old scandal that has never quite died, unlike the cold stiffs who are piling up in the town morgue. As she pieces together the clues, Mira discovers that Battle Lake's good-old boys have been up to some bad business. But with threats and enemies around every icy corner, she may not live long enough to expose the truth.

SYNOPSIS : S.C. Perkins' Murder Once Removed is the captivating first mystery in the Ancestry Detective series, in which Texas genealogist Lucy Lancaster uses her skills to solve murders in both the past and present. Except for a good taco, genealogist Lucy Lancaster loves nothing more than tracking down her clientsโ€™ long-dead ancestors, and her job has never been so exciting as when she discovers a daguerreotype photograph and a journal proving Austin, Texas, billionaire Gus Halloranโ€™s great-great-grandfather was murdered back in 1849. Whatโ€™s more, Lucy is able to tell Gus who was responsible for his ancestorโ€™s death. Partly, at least. Using clues from the journal, Lucy narrows the suspects down to two nineteenth-century Texans, one of whom is the ancestor of present-day U.S. senator Daniel Applewhite. But when Gus publicly outs the senator as the descendant of a murdererโ€”with the accidental help of Lucy herselfโ€”and her former co-worker is murdered protecting the daguerreotype, Lucy will find that shaking the branches of some family trees proves them to be more twisted and dangerous than she ever thought possible.
