Amos Decker, David Baldacci’s unique special agent with the gift of a remarkable memory, returns in The Fallen.
Small towns which have seen better times are not unusual. But the mysterious events in Baronville, Pennsylvania, are raising the highly-tuned antennae of agent Amos Decker and his FBI partner, Alex Jamison. What was supposed to be a relaxing vacation turns into a murder investigation when two bodies are found in a nearby deserted house.
With the body count rising, Decker and Jamison dig deep to uncover a sinister truth in Baronville, which could be the canary in the coalmine for the rest of the country. But even the duo’s skills and Amos Decker’s infallible memory may not be enough to save this town, or them, from becoming the next victims.
At long last, a final reckoning is coming for Frieda Klein...
On a north London high street, a runaway vehicle crashes to a halt. The man in the driving seat was murdered a week earlier. On Hampstead Heath, a bonfire blazes: in the flames lies the next victim. As autumn leaves fall, a serial killer runs amok in the capital, playing games with the police. The death toll is rising fast, and the investigation is floundering. But this is no ordinary killer, and every new victim is intended as a message to just one woman. Because psychologist Frieda Klein is in hiding. And someone is coming to find her...
After seven stunning novels, Frieda Klein's duel with her dark nemesis finally comes to a climax - and only one can make it out alive.
Eve Singer needs death. With her career as a TV crime reporter flagging, she'll do anything to satisfy her ghoulish audience.
The killer needs death too. He even advertises his macabre public performances, where he hopes to show the whole world the beauty of dying. When he contacts Eve, she welcomes the chance to be first with the news from every gory scene. Until she realizes that the killer has two obsessions...
One is public murder. And the other one is her!
Jane Tennison, a young, inexperienced WPC, learns the hard way never to take anyone, or anything, at face value, whether in her dealings with her police colleagues or when confronted by seemingly innocent suspects. Hidden Killers sees Jane acting as a 'decoy' prostitute, with the hope of capturing a suspect wanted for numerous sexual assaults. The attacker is drawn in and put under arrest. Commended for bravery in the case, Jane is given CID status and moves from Hackney to Bow Street Station as Detective.
Her first call-out is to a non-suspicious death. The victim is a young mother, drowned tragically in her bath, leaving a bereft and doting husband and a young child. The two storylines interweave as Jane begins to doubt the evidence against her assailant in East London, and becomes certain that the young woman in the bath did not drown in tragic circumstances.
Two entirely different cases but one common thread - the lingering doubt in Jane's mind around the evidence, and around her colleagues...
Dark traces is the English translation of Martin Steyn’s first suspense novel, Donker spoor. When a child is murdered, it always seems as if a light has been extinguished in a parent’s eyes. They find her decomposing body in the veld. A teenager. She was raped and tortured for days. She was hanged. She wasn’t the first. The South African Police Service’s Warrant Officer Jan Magson, estranged from his son and still grieving for his wife, is assigned to the case. He has to look the mothers and fathers in the eye. He has to answer their questions. And he can’t. Headlines question the police’s ability to protect the community from this evil. A newspaper prints a mother’s heart-wrenching letter to the killer. A father offers a substantial reward. And every time another lead reaches a dead end, Magson finds himself looking down at another dead girl. Winner of the 2015 ATKV Prize for Suspense Fiction, Martin Steyn’s Dark traces deals with two sides of homicide: sadistic murder and euthanasia: killing for pleasure and killing for love.
A collection of chilling tales featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan – including the untold story of her first case.
The No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs is renowned for suspense and fascinating forensic detail. Now she brings that same artistry to her first volume of collected short stories. In First Bones, a prequel to Reichs’s very first novel, Déjà Dead, she at last reveals how Tempe became a forensic anthropologist. In this never-before-published story, Tempe recalls the case that lured her from a promising career in academia into the grim but addictive world of criminal investigation.
Three more stories take Tempe from the low country of the Florida Everglades, where she makes a grisly discovery in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Burmese python, to the heights of Mount Everest, where a frozen corpse is unearthed.
Die Koors het byna almal gevat. Maar nie dertien jaar oue Nico Storm en sy pa, Willem, nie.
Deur ’n Suid-Afrikaanse landskap feitlik sonder mense, met al hoe minder blikkieskos in die verlate winkels, Koeberg-bestraling in die Wes-Kaap en al hoe meer moorddadige hondebendes – én mensebendes – swerf Nico en sy pa, op soek na ’n plek om die samelewing weer te vestig.
Wanneer hulle dit eindelik sover het by die ou Vanderkloof – nou Amanzi – met ’n groepie swerflinge wat saam van voor af wil begin, steek al die ou sondes van die mensdom kop uit. Gou is Amanzi op geloofs- en politieke lyne verdeel, en verdediging teen die swaar gewapende motorfietsbendes wat dwarsoor Suid-Afrika plunder en moor raak al hoe moeiliker. En wat van die geheimsinnige, yskoue Domingo, wat by Amanzi aangery kom op ’n motorfiets van sy eie en spoedig as paramilitêre leier ontpop – kan hý ooit vertrou word?
Dis nie lank nie, of moord kom inderdaad ook na Amanzi …
In Koors vertel die volwasse Nico Storm die verhaal van die moord op sy pa. Dit is ’n aksiebelaaide nuwe rigting vir Deon Meyer, met al die aspekte wat lesers van sy spanningsfiksie verwag en nog vele nuwe lekkertes daarby.

The second novel in Ellroy's second 'L.A. Quartet', which began with the publication of Perfidia in 2014.
January, 1942. L.A. reels behind the shock of Pearl Harbor. Local Japanese are rounded up and slammed behind bars. Massive thunderstorms hit the city. A body is unearthed in Griffith Park. The cops tag it a routine dead-man job. They’re wrong. It’s an early-warning signal of Chaos. There’s a murderous fire and a gold heist, exploding out of the past. There’s Fifth Column treason – at this moment, on American soil. There are homegrown Nazis, commies and race racketeers. There’s two dead cops in a dive off the jazz-club strip. And three men and one woman have a hot date with History.
Elmer Jackson is a corrupt Vice cop. He’s a flesh peddler and a bagman for the L.A. Chief of Police. Hideo Ashida is a crime-lab whiz, lashed by anti-Japanese rage. Dudley Smith is a PD hardnose working Army Intelligence. He’s gone rogue and gone all-the-way fascist. Joan Conville was born rogue. She’s a defrocked Navy lieutenant and a war profiteer to her core.
L.A., 1942. Homefront madness ascendant. Early-wartime inferno – This Storm is James Ellroy’s most audacious novel yet. It is by turns savage, tender, elegiac. It lays bare and celebrates crazed Americans of all stripes.

Now the bomber she and Joe captured is about to go on trial, and his defense raises damning questions about Lindsay and Joe's investigation.
Not knowing whom to trust, and struggling to accept the truth about the man she thought she knew, Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a brilliant criminal puts her on trial.
