Book Excerpt :

Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón investigates a series of suspicious suicides in the “intricate [and] chilling” follow up to The Blind Man of Seville (Publishers Weekly). In an exclusive suburb of Seville, Spain, a wealthy couple is found dead in their home, the tragic conclusion to an apparent suicide pact. Lucia Vega has been suffocated in her own bed, while her husband, construction magnate Rafael Vega, has succumbed to poison, a bizarre note clutched in his hand. When Inspector Javier Falcón is called to investigate the scene, he senses something is not as it seems—a hunch that proves all too true. Within two days, two more dubious suicides occur, a fire rages through the hills above the city, and Falcón himself receives ominous threats from the Russian mafia. Embroiled in a conspiracy much larger than it originally appeared, Falcón must uncover the secrets that were buried with the dead, before the gruesome body count rises even higher. “Tangly, sprawly, garrulous, astute, here’s one more Wilson witchery that intertwines literature and art.” —Los Angeles Times “Wilson builds a many-layered portrait of survivors and perpetrators, each consumed by rage, guilt, or depression.” —The Boston Globe

Book Short Summary:

This early work by Richard Austin Freeman was originally published in 1911 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. 'The Vanishing Man' is one of Freeman's novels of crime and mystery. The first story featuring his well-known protagonist Dr. Thorndyke - a medico-legal forensic investigator - was published in 1907, and although Freeman's early works were seen as simple homages to his contemporary, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he quickly developed his own style: The 'inverted detective story', in which the identity of the criminal is shown from the beginning, and the story then describes the detective's attempt to solve the mystery.

Book Short Summary:

A story of second chances and secrets, this mysterious Regency romance will transport you to 19th-century England as one young lady reunites with her childhood love to find his missing sister. Her friend is missing. After five years abroad, Charity Halliwell finally returns to Loxby Manor, the home of dear friends—and her lost love. No longer a young girl, she is now haunted by a painful secret and the demise of her dreams. Instead of the healing and happiness she hopes to find, she encounters a darkness lurking in the shadows of the once-familiar house. When her friend, Seline, disappears the very night of her arrival, Charity is determined to uncover the truth. Her only hope is the man who broke her heart. Branded a coward, Piers Cavanaugh has lived the last five years as an outcast far from his family home. When his sister presumably elopes with a stable hand, Piers joins forces with an unlikely partner—the one woman he thought he’d never see again. Together they launch an investigation that leads to strange nightly meetings in the ruins of an old abbey and disturbing whispers of a secret organization. The more they learn, the more desperate the situation becomes. The house seems determined to keep its secrets. As they struggle to piece together the clues, Charity and Piers also endeavor to rebuild their friendship. One cryptic letter changed everything between them. To find happiness they will have to overcome the grief and shame keeping them apart. But first they must discover why Seline vanished and confront the growing fear that she may never return. Settle in, because once you start The Vanishing at Loxby Manor, you won’t be able to put it down. Praise for The Vanishing at Loxby Manor “Vanishing at Loxby Manor cleverly combines Regency romance with Gothic intrigue, and the result is a suspenseful, thoroughly entertaining read. Charming and lovely.” —Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of In the Shadow of Vesuvius “Weaving a shadow of mystery among the gilded countryside of Regency England, Wilson's tale of love lost, buried shame, and secret societies is a delicious blend of romance and intrigue. Splash in gorgeous historical Regency details, and murder brewing around every stone, and readers will be burning through the pages until the riveting end.” —J'nell Ciesielski, author of The Socialite “Abigail Wilson’s latest Gothic romance hits the notes readers have come to expect from her talented pen: romance, shadows and intrigue and a brilliantly executed atmosphere. She is a master at her craft and a rare stand-out in a popular genre.” —Rachel McMillan, author of The London Restoration Sweet but mysterious Regency Romance with Gothic tones A stand-alone novel Book length: approximately 90,000 words Includes discussion questions for book clubs

Book Short Summary:

A stunning blend of vivid fantasy and political drama, The Vanished Queen is the timely story of a young resistance fighter working to overthrow a totalitarian ruler’s regime of terror and lies. “[G]ripping…this is the novel the world needs now” (Kate Heartfield, Nebula Award finalist and author of Aurora Award–winning novel Armed in Her Fashion). Long ago, Queen Mirantha vanished. King Karolje claimed she was assassinated by a neighboring ruler, but her people knew the truth: the king had Disappeared her himself. Now the queen’s disappearance is hardly a memory—merely one among many horrors the king’s reign has wrought. But when Anza, a young student impassioned by her father’s unjust execution, finds the missing queen’s diary, she is inspired by Mirantha’s words—joins the resistance group to overthrow the king. Prince Esvar is the second son to an evil king. Trapped under his thumb and desperate for a way out, a chance meeting with Anza gives him the opportunity to join the resistance. Together, they might have the leverage to move against the king—but if they fail, their deaths could mean a total loss of freedom for generations to follow. In this dangerous game of court politics, one misstep could lead to a fate worse than death. Set in a world where resistance is as dangerous as it is important, The Vanished Queen is a “big, dark, intricate novel” (Lousia Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches) about the courage and sacrifice it requires to take on a tyrant.

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Competition, Joanna Schaffhausen’s accomplished debut The Vanishing Season will grip readers from the opening page to the stunning conclusion. Ellery Hathaway knows a thing or two about serial killers, but not through her police training. She's an officer in sleepy Woodbury, MA, where a bicycle theft still makes the newspapers. No one there knows she was once victim number seventeen in the grisly story of serial killer Francis Michael Coben. The only one who lived. When three people disappear from her town in three years—all around her birthday—Ellery fears someone knows her secret. Someone very dangerous. Her superiors dismiss her concerns, but Ellery knows the vanishing season is coming and anyone could be next. She contacts the one man she knows will believe her: the FBI agent who saved her from a killer all those years ago. Agent Reed Markham made his name and fame on the back of the Coben case, but his fortunes have since turned. His marriage is in shambles, his bosses think he's washed up, and worst of all, he blew a major investigation. When Ellery calls him, he can’t help but wonder: sure, he rescued her, but was she ever truly saved? His greatest triumph is Ellery’s waking nightmare, and now both of them are about to be sucked into the past, back to the case that made them...with a killer who can't let go.

Book Short Summary:

The conference of European Nations is taking place in The Hague. Mr John P. Dunster, an American, is travelling to the conference with important information relating to the seemingly inevitable outbreak of war. The document he carries could prevent the war entirely but when he disappears following a train wreck, Richard Hamel must solve the mystery – before it is too late. A classic mystery novel from popular author E. Phillips Oppenheim. E. Phillips Oppenheim (1866-1946) was a hugely prolific and highly popular British author of novels and short stories. Born in Tottenham, London, Oppenheim left school as a teenager and worked for his leather-merchant father for 20 years prior to launching his literary career. Oppenheim published five novels under the pseudonym ‘Anthony Partridge’ before establishing his reputation as a writer under his own name. An internationally successful author, Oppenheim’s stories revolved mainly around glamourous characters, luxurious settings, and themes of espionage, suspense, and crime. He is widely regarded as one of the earliest pioneers of the thriller and spy-fiction genre as it is recognised today. Oppenheim’s incredible literary success meant that his own life soon began to mirror that of his opulent characters. He held lavish, Gatsby-style parties at his French Villa and was rumoured to have had frequent love affairs aboard his luxury yacht. Oppenheim’s success earned him the cover of Time magazine in 1927. Some of his most well-known novels include ‘The Great Impersonation’, ‘The Long Arm of Mannister’ and ‘The Moving Finger’.

Book Short Summary:

New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller! In New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson’s second novel in the Truly Devious series, there are more twists and turns than Stevie Bell can imagine. No answer is given freely, and someone will pay for the truth with their life. The Truly Devious case—an unsolved kidnapping and triple murder that rocked Ellingham Academy in 1936—has consumed Stevie for years. It’s the very reason she came to the academy. But then her classmate was murdered, and her parents quickly pull her out of school. For her safety, they say. She must move past this obsession with crime. Stevie’s willing to do anything to get back to Ellingham, be back with her friends, and solve the Truly Devious case. Even if it means making a deal with the despicable Senator Edward King. And when Stevie finally returns, she also returns to David: the guy she kissed, and the guy who lied about his identity—Edward King’s son. But larger issues are at play. Where did the murderer hide? What’s the meaning of the riddle Albert Ellingham left behind? And what, exactly, is at stake in the Truly Devious affair? The Ellingham case isn’t just a piece of history—it’s a live wire into the present. * Junior Library Guild Selection * Chicago Public Library's Best of the Best Books of 2019 * Hypable's Best Books of 2019 * Praise for Book One: “The Agatha Christie-like ecosystem pairs with lacerating contemporary wit, and alternating past and present scenes makes for a multilayered, modern detective story.” —New York Times Book Review “Remember the first time reading Harry Potter and knowing it was special? There’s that same sense of magic in the introduction of teen Sherlock-in-training Stevie Bell.” —USA Today (four stars) “Be still, my Agatha-Christie-loving beating heart.” —Bustle

Book Short Summary:

The present work, it is hoped, will supply a want long felt in the literature of the Catacombs. That literature, it is true, is very voluminous; but it is for the most part locked up in rare and costly folios in foreign languages, and inaccessible to the general reader. Recent discoveries have refuted some of the theories and corrected many of the statements of previous books in English on this subject; and the present volume is the only one in which the latest results of exploration are fully given, and interpreted from a Protestant point of view. The writer has endeavored to illustrate the subject by frequent pagan sepulchral inscriptions, and by citations from the writings of the Fathers, which often throw much light on the condition of early Christian society. The value of the work is greatly enhanced, it is thought, by the addition of many hundreds of early Christian inscriptions carefully translated, a very large proportion of which have never before appeared in English. Those only who have given some attention to epigraphical studies can conceive the difficulty of this part of the work. The defacements of time, and frequently the original imperfection of the inscriptions and the ignorance of their writers, demand the utmost carefulness to avoid errors of interpretation. The writer has been fortunate in being assisted by the veteran scholarship of the Rev. Dr. McCaul, well known in both Europe and America as one of the highest living authorities in epigraphical science, under whose critical revision most of the translations have passed. Through the enterprise of the publishers this work is more copiously illustrated, from original and other sources, than any other work on the subject in the language; thus giving more correct and vivid impressions of the unfamiliar scenes and objects delineated than is possible by any mere verbal description. References are given, in the foot-notes, to the principal authorities quoted, but specific acknowledgment should here be made of the author’s indebtedness to the Cavaliere De Rossi’s Roma Sotterranea and Inscriptiones Christianæ, by far the most important works on this fascinating but difficult subject. Believing that the testimony of the Catacombs exhibits, more strikingly than any other evidence, the immense contrast between primitive Christianity and modern Romanism, the author thinks no apology necessary for the somewhat polemical character of portions of this book which illustrate that fact. He trusts that it will be found a contribution of some value to the historical defense of the truth against the corruptions and innovations of Popish error.

Book Short Summary:

In his first days as Prime Minister, John Curtin presented himself to the press as a self-styled intellectual who loved sport and relaxing, when he could, with a book, beach walk, game of cards or fossick in the garden. He also revealed that he enjoyed poetry so much that he held to a Sunday night poetry ritual. Curtin was Australia's third wartime Prime Minister, Labor's eighth Prime Minister, and the first Prime Minister from a Western Australian electorate. 'Toby Davidson reveals a new perspective on John Curtin: the poetry of his times, and the poems he himself read. As Davidson shows, Curtin's poetry reading and his reflections upon it influenced his thoughts and language from his socialist youth to the last days of his leadership of a nation transformed by global peril. Good for the Soul: John Curtin's Life with Poetry is a unique, patiently researched and fascinating re-evaluation of Australia's revered wartime Prime Minister.' – John Edwards, author of John Curtin's War Volume I & II 'A stunningly comprehensive account which shows a side of John Curtin we have only glimpsed before. Davidson skilfully traces how poetry was Curtin's companion and ally from his humble beginnings in rural Victoria to his death in office in 1945, two months before the end of World War II.' – Professor David Black, editor of In His Own Words: John Curtin's Speeches and Writings and Friendship is a Sheltering Tree: John Curtin's Letters 1907 to 1945.

Book Short Summary:

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. Why do we sign our names? How can a squiggle both enslave and liberate? Signatures often require a witness-as if the scrawl itself is not enough. What other kinds of beliefs and longings justify our signing practices? Signature addresses these questions as it roams from a roundtable on the Greek island of Syros, to a scene of handwriting analysis conducted in an English pub, from a wedding in Moscow, where guests sign the bride's body, to a San Franciscan tattoo parlor interested in arcane forms. The signature's history encompasses ancient handprints on cave walls, autograph hunters, the branding of slaves, metaphysical poetry, medical malpractice, hip-hop lyrics, legal challenges to electronic signatures, ice cores harvested from Greenland, and tales of forgery and autopens. Part cultural chronicle, part travelogue, Signature pursues the identifying marks made by people, animals, and planetary forces, revealing the stories and fantasies hidden in their signatures. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in the The Atlantic.

Book Short Summary:

Randolph Stow (1935–2010) was a writer who resisted critical containment. His complete oeuvre of eight novels, a children's novella, a libretto, translation work and several collections of poetry presents an accomplished and impressive literary legacy. The collection republishes a number of significant essays but also presents new readings acknowledging the remarkable skill as well as the limitations of Stow's literary imagining. All are a testimony to the resonance of Stow's writing while acknowledging the critical complexities of his work. 'Commencing this project with the simple ambition to present a critical collection responding to the full breadth of Randolph Stow's work, I extended an invitation to literary scholars and critics whose work I knew addressed his writing. The responses were encouraging and generous, confirming the wide reach of interest in Stow's life and literature. It reminded me that while not as comprehensively studied as some of his contemporaries, Stow continues to enjoy the support of broad public and academic readership.' — Kate Rendell

Book Short Summary:

The Description of ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ has been authored by Muhammad Shanazar, an internationally recognized poet, who has got several awards and recognition. A poet writes but it is the critic who explores the world created by him. ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ is a poem which has been suggested for the title and in the title poem images of horror and devastation have been recreated and depicted, the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki went through during the use of nuclear bombs, in August 1945. The poem ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ concludes with the lines: ‘Who are these who move like ghosts, Charred bony figures with hanging shreds, Lamenting upon the horrible deed And despised nature sighs and sobs That who knows when time takes turn, Who knows moments of calm and peace, Might contain the centuries of sorrows.’ ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ in general consists of majority of the poems which refer to cupidity, recklessness, injustice, callousness of international organizations, terrorism and horrors of war, in fact these all collectively cast Darkness and it dances around the world. The book is not merely a book of poetry but it contains cries of the poet who admonishes the leading heads humanity about the unheeded perils which humanity may confront with the total annihilation of human existence on the planet. The poems from serial No. 69 to 133 deal with the theme of peace and war, rather they are poems against war, they preach for the world free of violence, weapons and wars. In ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ some poems pertain to nostalgia, in these poems the poet expressed mixed sentiments and memories sweet and sour through which he lived in. Poem from serial No. 07 to 29 are nostalgic ones. The most striking feature of ‘The Dance Of Darkness, is the expression of some mind baffling spiritual experiences that the poet underwent. There had been time in his life when he went through very mystical experiences and he kept them concealed lest he should be branded lunatic, in these poems he share the same experiences with intellectuals of the world. The readers may find apt substance regarding human soul, body and mind and their relationship with the cosmos. What often happened to him, while he was lying on the bed, he felt something departing from his physical existence, then that began to fly with the incredible speed with all senses and went higher and higher farther than the distances of many light years, whatever he saw, he expressed in some of his poems without exaggeration. (See poems from the Suspended Mountain to Omnipresence Of Breeze). ‘The Dance Of Darkness’ also contains poems on patriotism, love, social and political issues and these poems have awesome endings. Critical study of these poems imparts the students of literature maturity and a sense of amplification to their minds; it has a vast diction and crystal clear imagery replete with similes metaphors. Thorough study of the book certainly improves the reader’s taste, intellect, and understanding of poetry as well.

Book Short Summary:

In this “fine mystery . . . British expat/private investigator in West Africa, Medway is as fully realized as Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe” (Publishers Weekly). In West Africa’s underworld, nothing is sacred and no one is safe. Even its most experienced denizens can get caught off guard, as fixer-for-hire Bruce Medway discovers when a case gone wrong entangles him in toxic-waste scams, mafia money, and—worst of all—a quest for vengeance. After Napier Briggs hires Medway to help recover money he lost in a scam, he winds up dead. And the police show little interest in solving the crime. But Brigg’s daughter, Selina, isn’t interested in justice—she’s out for revenge. And she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get Medway on her side. Between the lies, deceit, seduction, and murder, Medway might finally have met a job that’s too dangerous even for him. “Scintillatingly evokes a world where the scam is a way of life . . . For once, a novelist influenced by Raymond Chandler is not shown up by the comparison.” —The Sunday Times “A compelling mixture of brutal violence and deadpan wit.” —Kirkus Reviews

Book Short Summary:

Theodore Hamerow, a prominent historian, was born in Warsaw in 1920 and spent his childhood in Poland and Germany. His parents were members of the best-known Yiddish theater ensemble, the Vilna Company. They were part of an important movement in the Jewish community of Eastern Europe which sought, during the half century before World War II, to create a secular Jewish culture, the vehicle of which would be the Yiddish language. Combining the skills of an experienced historian with the talents of a natural writer, the author not only brings this exciting part of Jewish culture to life but also deals with ethnic relations and ethnic tensions in the region and addresses the broad political and cultural issues of a society on the verge of destruction. Thus a vivid image emerges that captures the feel and atmosphere of a world that has vanished forever.

Book Short Summary:

Sirens are sounds that confront us in daily life, from the sounds of police cars and fire engines to, less often, tornado warnings. Ideologies of sirens embody the protective, the seductive and the dangerous elements of siren sounds – from the US Cold War public training exercises in the 1950s and 1960s to the seductive power of the sirens entrenched in popular culture: from Wagner to Dizzee Rascal, from Kafka to Kurt Vonnegut, from Hans Christian Andersen to Walt Disney. This book argues, using a wide array of theorists from Adorno to Bloch and Kittler, that we should understand 'siren sounds' in terms of their myth and materiality, and that sirens represent a sonic confluence of power, gender and destructiveness embedded in core Western ideologies to the present day. Bull poses the question of whether we can rely on sirens, both in their mythic meanings and in their material meanings in contemporary culture.

Book Short Summary:

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is the most important work of Mary Baker Eddy, founder of The Church of Christ, Scientist. Along with the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is the central text of the Christian Science religion. Science and Health encapsulates the teachings of Christian Science and Christian Scientists often call it their "textbook."Christian Science develops its theology and its healing method from these simple statements: 1) "God is All-in all." 2) "God is good." 3)"God is Mind, and God is infinite; hence all is Mind." The conclusions are that humans are all perfect spiritual ideas of the one divine Mind, and manifest Spirit, not a material body. The five physical senses, which take no account of Spirit, are the origin of all false beliefs. Adherents of Christian Science claim that sickness is just a belief, not a property of matter. Praying from this standpoint removes the belief and brings healing.
