A tragic love story methodically woven around a fallen country music star, a beautiful dancer, a 13-year-old child genius, and a powerful, psychopathic judge. A friend pulls out a Ouija board and asks you to play. It´s just a game, right? But when the Ouija board reveals a secret you´ve never disclosed, then ´´the spirit´´ asks you to warn his living sister that she is about to be murdered.... What would you do? This is the scenario that tragically entangles the lives of Max Allen, Carla Cecil, and Bradford Doss. Max Allen is a disgraced fallen country music star trying to survive his ignominy by escaping to the islands to find a new direction and purpose for his life. In the islands, he meets and falls in love with Michelle Parker, a beautiful cruise ship dancer. Bradford Doss is a revered Texas state court judge. He is also a serial murderer. Carla Cecil is a child genius. At 13, she is the youngest person to ever attend Rice University, the spirit´s living sister, and tragically...the judges next prey. 1. Language: English.

Professor Piers Knight is the Brooklyn Museum’s very own Indiana Jones. His specialties include lost civilizations, arcane cultures, and more than a little bit of the history of magic and mysticism. What his contemporaries don´t know is that in addition to being a scholar of all these topics, he is also proficient in the uses of magical artifacts. Knight receives a chilling message from Tian Lu, a former lover and an agent for the Chinese government. Years ago, they made a frightening discovery at an archeological dig when out of the depths rose… a living, fire-breathing dragon. Now, the dragons are waking from their slumber before their scheduled time. And one particularly diabolical dragon is set on eliminating the others and taking over the world. As civilization plunges into panic, Knight, Lu, Knight’s 17-year-old techie intern George Rainert, and an untrustworthy dragon ally must use all their resources - magical and otherwise - to stop the destruction before it’s too late. 1.

As if he doesn´t have enough to handle between running outlaws out of Cheyenne, keeping his brothers out of trouble, and avenging his father´s death, Sheriff Sawyer McCade´s meddling mother just dumped a mysterious mail-order bride on his doorstep. One woman can be more trouble than a band of renegades, and while this one has him all stirred up, he´d rather get to the bottom of the story she isn´t telling. Rose Parker had it all - until a web of danger and deceit sends her running to Cheyenne posing as a mail-order bride. Escaping the evils of New York seems sensible until she meets the unsuspecting sheriff who didn´t ask for her, has no intention of marrying her, and won´t rest until he uncovers her secret and sends her back home. 1.

I´m Lucy Rose, and here´s the thing about this summer: I am big on fun and big on plans. I am desperate to make a lanyard keychain, and Jonique is feeling the same about potholders. Plus I have to get rid of 78 or more squirrels that are climbing all over Madam and Pop´s apricot tree and taking bites out of the puny fruits and flinging them to the ground which is maddening to Madam who wants to make them into jam. The apricots, not the squirrels. Plus I have to figure out what to do about the absolute pest who is named Ashley and is making Parks & Rec not so much fun. And even though I don´t want to think about it, I need to come up with a way to stop my parents´ separation from turning into a divorce. Here is the thing about that: All these things are an extremely lot to get done in one summer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tara Sands.

Sherlock Holmes suggests a vacation to Watson. They travel to Switzerland to relax and share the holidays with friends. Watson suddenly disappears on Christmas Eve. There are strange sightings...a pear tree blocking the sidewalk of a home, dancing lords, singing maidens, cows with ringing bells, a partridge in London’s Bentley Park...and it just gets more and more mysterious as Christmas approaches and Watson still remains lost to his friends. Now begins a Christmas fantasy filled with memorable events, revelations, and magic that goes beyond that of the magician Harry Houdini to something so pure that no one can discover its origins.

The murder of Judge Hugo Jackson is out of Detective Simon Ziele´s jurisdiction in more ways than one. For one, its high-profile enough to command the attention of the notorious new police commissioner, since Judge Jackson was presiding over the sensational trial of Al Drayson. Drayson, an anarchist, set off a bomb at a Carnegie family wedding, but instead of killing millionaires, it killed passersby, including a child. The dramatic trial has captured the full attention of 1906 New York City. Furthermore, Simons assigned precinct on Manhattan´s West Side includes the gritty Tenderloin but not the tonier Gramercy Park, which is where the judge is found in his locked town house with his throat slashed on the night before the jury is set to deliberate. But his widow insists on calling her husband´s old classmate criminologist, Alistair Sinclair, who in turn enlists Ziele´s help. Together they must steer Sinclair´s unorthodox methods past a police force that is so focused on rounding up Drayson´s supporters that they´ve all but rejected any other possibilities. Once again, Stefanie Pintoff´´s combination of vital characters and a fascinating case set amongst the sometimes brutal and sometimes glittering history of turn-of-the-century New York makes for totally compelling reading in Secret of the White Rose, the third novel in her Edgar Award-winning series. 1.
