Robert Heilbrun - Offer of Proof (v5.0) (epub)

A beautiful businesswoman is robbedand murdered. With her last breath, she identifies her assailant. Or does she? Damon Tucker, a young kid from Harlem, is quickly charged with the murder. He maintains his innocence from the beginning despite some incredibly damning evidence. Soon the only person standing between Damon and a possible death sentence is his public defender, Arch Gold, a tough courtroom veteran who knows every move in the game of criminal justice in New York City. But in this case Gold quickly discovers that nothing is what it seems and the rules of evidence don't always apply. This may be a case he can't win.

Through Gold's eyes, we meet an unforgettable cast of characters on both sides of the law: a judge who smiles at everyone but favors the death penalty; an old bookie who's trying to keep the government from seizing his IRAs; a young stripper with a big mouth; and a stick-up artist who wants a day job. Each has a surprising role to play as Gold faces the biggest challenge of his career, risking his reputation -- and his life -- to find the truth.

With more than a decade of experience as a public defender, Robert Heilbrun is intimately familiar with the workings of the criminal justice system, inside and outside the courtroom. In Offer of Proof, Heilbrun puts his legal expertise to use in this stunning and beautifully written thriller with a shocking twist.

Valerio Varesi - River of Shadows (v5.0) (epub)

Introducing Commissario Soneri in a C.W.A. International Dagger-shortlisted novel, River of Shadows is brooding, visceral and packed with atmosphere and tension.

A relentless deluge lashes the Po Valley, and the river itself swells beyond its limits. A barge breaks free of its moorings and drifts erratically downstream; when finally it runs aground its seasoned pilot is nowhere to be found. The following day, an elderly man of the same surname falls from the window of a nearby hospital. Commissario Soneri, scornful of his superiors' scepticism, is convinced the two incidents are linked. Stonewalled by the bargemen who make their living along the riverbank, he scours the floodplain for clues. As the waters begin to ebb, the river yields up its secrets: tales of past brutality, bitter rivalry and revenge.

Lucinda Brant - Alec Halsey 01 - Deadly Engagement (v5.0) (epub)

It's 1763. Career diplomat Alec Halsey returns to London and the shocking news his estranged elder brother, the Earl of Delvin, has not only killed his friend in a duel but become engaged to the woman he had hoped to marry. To learn more about the suspect duel, Alec reluctantly attends a weekend house party to celebrate his brother's engagement. House guests get more than they bargained for when a lady's maid is murdered, the bride-to-be attacked, and a guest is shot dead. Alec uncovers a connection between these sinister acts and his brother's duel. He must also confront a cruel twist of fate that explains why his brother loathes him and will go to any lengths to discredit him in Polite Society.




Lucinda Brant - Alec Halsey 02 - Deadly Affair (v5.0) (epub)

Career diplomat Alec Halsey has been elevated to a marquessate he doesn't want and Polite Society believes he doesn't deserve; his lover has decided she won't marry him after all and the suspicion he murdered his brother still lingers in London drawing rooms. So returning to London after seven months' seclusion may have been a mistake.

Alec's foreboding deepens when a nobody vicar drops dead at a party-political dinner; he witnesses the very public humiliation of an up and coming portrait painter, and his rabble-rousing uncle Plantagenet is bashed and left for dead in a laneway. When the vicar's true identity is revealed, Alec suspects the man was poisoned. But who would want a seemingly harmless man of God murdered, and why?

Will Kingdom - Mean Spirit (v5.0) (epub)

The lines are open......but the messages are sounding bleak for Seffi Callard - cool, charismatic, beautiful and now the world's best-known spiritualist medium. Suddenly a victim of her own remarkable gifts, she's been forced to back away from the glamour and the glow of public adulation, becoming a paranoid recluse at her father's home in the Cotswolds. Maybe the only person who can understand Seffi's crisis is her old schoolteacher Marcus Bacton, who was the first to identify her skills. Marcus, now editor of an obscure journal of the paranormal, sends his assistant, American journalist Grayle Underhill, to Seffi's rural hideaway...and into a nightmare. Who is stalking Seffi Callard - and from which side of the grave? The search for an answer will involve disillusioned police detective Bobby Maiden and the eccentric entertainer Cindy Mars-Lewis - himself facing vilification by his public after a series of bizarre tragedies linked to the national obsession with getting rich quick. At a Victorian neo-Gothic castle in the Malvern Hills, they discover that, for one psychopathic killer, getting rich is less important than never getting dead. Brilliant and original, Will Kingdom's second novel - full of sharp characterization, black humour and electrifying suspense - will convince you that there really are more crimes in heaven and on earth.

Tim McLoughlin - New York City Noir, the Five Borough Set (v5) (epub)

New York City Noir: The Five Borough Set collects the five NYC borough installments in our award-winning Akashic Noir Series into a single e-book edition: Brooklyn Noir, edited by Tim McLoughlin, Manhattan Noir, edited by Lawrence Block, Bronx Noir, edited by S.J. Rozan, Queens Noir, edited by Robert Knightly, and Staten Island Noir, edited by Patricia Smith.

Launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir, each book in the Akashic Noir Series is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. The volumes collected here have been published over an eight year span, culminating in 2012 with Staten Island Noir. New York City Noir--featuring 87 stories by a who's who in contemporary crime fiction--presents a breathtaking glimpse at the nation's noirest city from the writers who know it best.

FROM THE INTRODUCTION by series cocreator Tim McLoughlin: "It has taken eight years, and the publication of nearly sixty titles in the series, to complete the five boroughs, to tell the tale of a town that contains Wall Street and the Upper East Side, the slums of the South Bronx and the beauty of its botanical garden, the dizzying changes of Brooklyn’s gentrification, the weekly ethnic shifts of neighborhoods in Queens, and the inexorable transformation of Staten Island from quasi-rural suburb to the new old-Brooklyn, a package complete with traffic jams and racial violence. Eighty-seven stories ranging from art theft to horse theft, from random serial killings to good old-fashioned crimes of passion.As editors, Lawrence Block, S.J. Rozan, Robert Knightly, and Patricia Smith have done a remarkable job, uniformly keeping the tone of each book authentic to its borough. And their work has been critically rewarded. A number of these stories are Edgar, Anthony, and Shamus award winners or nominees. Three have been included in annual Best American Mystery Stories collections, and two were adapted as short films. Lou Manfredo, Maggie Estep, and Robert Knightly expanded stories presented here into novels."
