Harry Hole fra drabsafdelingen i Oslo sendes til Australien, officielt for at bistå i opklaringen af mordet på en ung, norsk kvinde, uofficielt fordi hans overordnede synes, at han trænger til at komme lidt væk. I lufthavnen bliver han mødt af Andrew Kensington, en aboriginal kriminalbetjent med en mindst lige så broget fortid som ham selv. Sammen bevæger de sig rundt i Sydneys red light district, King’s Cross, og forsøger at navigere efter de svage ekkoer fra en morder. FLAGERMUSMANDEN er første bind i serien om Harry Hole – en alkoholiseret, egenrådig, samvittighedsfuld og charmerende politimand med et indre kompas, som gør ham til en fremragende efterforsker.

Sam Small er på mange måder en klassisk yorkshiremand. Han er kendt for sine tvivlsomme anekdoter og løgnehistorier, men han har også en hemmelig evne, som man faktisk skulle tro var løgn. Sam Small kan nemlig flyve. "Den flyvende yorkshiremand" består af ti historier om, hvordan han igen og igen roder sig ud i mærkelige situationer, hvor det indimellem er hans flyveri, der bringer ham i fare, og andre gange er selvsamme uforklarlige evne, der redder ham i sidste øjeblik. Eric Knight skrev historierne om Sam Small tusindvis af kilometer fra sin hjemegn, Yorkshire, når hvemveen blev for voldsom. Kærligheden til den engelske egn og dens folk skinner om kap med humoren på bogens sider. Eric Knight (1897-1943) var en britisk forfatter bosat i USA i en længere årrække. Eric Knight omkom som major i den amerikanske hær under 2. verdenskrig, men nåede at efterlade sig et stort og forskelligartet forfatterskab. Han er særligt kendt og elsket for historierne om collien Lassie, som også blev et stort hit som tv-serie.

#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Following the incredible success of Sara Blaedel's #1 international bestsellers The Forgotten Girls and The Killing Forest, Louise Rick--head of the police department's elite Special Search Agency charged with missing persons cases--returns in Sara's latest twist-filled suspense novel... A housewife is the target of a shocking, methodical killing. Shot with a hunting rifle through her kitchen window, the woman is dead before she hits the ground. Though murdered in England, it turns out that the woman, Sofie Parker, is actually a Danish citizen who's been on the Missing Persons list for almost two decades--so Louise Rick is called on to the case. Then, in an unexpected twist, the police discover that Sofie had been reported missing eighteen years ago by none other than Eik, Louise Rick's police colleague and lover. Impulsive as ever, Eik rushes to England, and ends up in jail on suspicion of Sofie's murder. Completely blindsided by Eik's connection to the case, Louise is thoroughly unsettled and sick with worry, yet she must set aside her own emotional turmoil if she hopes to find the killer in what will become her most controversial case yet... "Crime-writer superstar Sara Blaedel's great skill is in weaving a heartbreaking social history into an edge-of-your-chair thriller while at the same time creating a detective who's as emotionally rich and real as a close friend." --Oprah.com "One of the best I've come across." --Michael Connelly "Sara Blaedel is a force to be reckoned with. She's a remarkable crime writer who time and again delivers a solid, engaging story that any reader in the world can enjoy." --Karin Slaughter "Leads to...that gray territory where compassion can become a crime and kindness can lead to coldblooded murder." --New York Times Book Review

"Taylor Edwards' family might not be the closest-knit--everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled--but for the most part, they get along just fine. Then Taylor's dad gets devastating news, and her parents decide that the family will spend one last summer all together at their old lake house in the Pocono Mountains. Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven't actually gone anywhere. Her former best friend is still around, as is her first boyfriend...and he's much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve. As the summer progresses and the Edwards become more of a family, they're more aware than ever that they're battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance--with family, with friends, and with love"--Provided by publisher.

JW is a student having trouble keeping up appearances in the rich party crowd he has involved himself with. He’s desperate for money, and when he’s offered a job dealing drugs to the very crowd he’s vying for a place in, he accepts it. Meanwhile, Jorge, a young Latino drug dealer, has just broken out of jail and is itching for revenge. When JW’s supplier gets wind of Jorge’s escape, he suggests JW track him down and attempt to win his trust in order to cover more area in the drug circuit. But JW’s not the only one on Jorge’s trail: Mrado, the brutal muscle behind the Yugoslavian mob boss whose goons were the ones who ratted Jorge out to the cops, is also on the hunt. But like everyone else, he’s tired of being a mere pawn in an impossibly risky game, and he’s seeking to carve out a niche of his own.
