A Killing Karma (Casey and Catt police procedural series) von Geraldine Evans

Enjoying a week’s well-earned break, Detective Chief Inspector ‚Will‘ Casey’s peace is shattered by a frantic call from his mother. Moon Casey, the maternal half of his drug-taking, ‘The Sixties never died’, hippie parents, confesses there are two dead bodies in the grounds of the Fenland commune where she and Star, his father, live.

His brain numbed by shock, Casey failed to question Moon thoroughly on the ‘phone. But, on arrival at their ramshackle commune, he learns that neither death has been reported — not surprising, when it emerges that the body of the first victim was found lying on top of their crushed cannabis plants and has already been buried for some time. While the body of the second victim was laid out in one of the sheds, surrounded by candles and bearing signs of violence.

Casey is bemused to discover that Moon, Star and the rest of the commune members seem to expect him to sweep these inconvenient bodies under some kind of magic carpet rather than call in the local constabulary. And although he is a loving son, for a responsible senior police officer, this really is an expectation too far. Determined that, for once in their lives, his parents take responsibility for their own actions, he insists that they ring their local police and report the deaths.

As if that’s not enough, once back on duty, Casey is also called upon to solve a very unpleasant murder on his own patch of King’s Langley: this time of a John Doe found dead in a dark alley. With the help of his knowing sergeant, Thomas Catt and his assorted contacts, Casey must try to get to the bottom of both official and unofficial cases.

Neither proves easy, particularly the latter, which suffers under the additional complication that he needs to keep a very low profile. If the media get a sniff of his connection to the druggie parents who are also suspects in what turns out to be a double murder investigation, his career could blow up in his face.

Cedardale Court (The First Road) von Nathan Lee Christensen

Full of daring fools, haunting old flames, and brimming with panicked villainy, the Oregon countryside was meant to solve Canner Connelly’s problems, not make them worse. But, after their well-intentioned move to Cedardale Court, the safety and peace of mind he’s longed for since the passing of his wife, for him and his daughter, Chloe, might be farther away than ever.

Almost as soon as the sun comes up, the promising start at Uncle Henry’s falls rather short when the ever inept inhabitants of Cedardale Court start their days. One domestic dispute, a little reckless driving, and a broken fire hydrant later, what normally might have been an enjoyable Sunday morning quickly turns into a slightly darker affair when a human hand turns up in the bushes.

From then on, things only get messier and more frightfully uncertain as, one by one, the secrets that have been so carefully kept, for so very long, unravel for everyone.

*A neo-gothic fabulation, bordered on the lines of hysterical realism, wrapped up in a quirky little murder mystery*

Telesa – The Covenant Keeper von Lani Wendt Young

An island of secrets. A girl on fire. An epic battle of the elements. Can love truly conquer all? A thrilling love story inspired by Pacific mythology – featuring a sinister sisterhood of beautiful women with an environmental agenda and a fiery yet vulnerable young woman who must master her gifts – before they destroy her and all those she cares about.

„Readers of Twilight will find many familiar features in Telesa- a strong supernatural element, beautiful young people, school romance, students with cars – and potential for a lot of chaos. But with a difference: here the mythology and school are Samoan. Telesā are powerful women who manipulate elemental forces, sometimes for good, but often not. Males are expendable.

When Leila Folger’s American father dies, the 18-year old insists on going to Samoa to learn something of her mother who, she believes, died when she was an infant. She is puzzled by her aunt’s cool welcome. At school she is drawn to head prefect Daniel but sparks fly. And a fiery response to a hostile youth at an interschool rugby match brawl leaves him with burns and her in confusion.

Then a beautiful woman introduces Leila to the fractious and ruthless sisterhood of telesā. Life itself is at stake. But Leila is strong, has loyal friends and elemental support, and gives a good account of herself. These are great stories and ‚The Bone Bearer‘, due in 2013, will complete the series.“ NZ National Library YA Fiction Review.

She is a girl torn between two worlds…Teenager Leila Folger escapes the stifling misery of life with her American grandmother and goes to Samoa searching to connect with her mother’s family. All her efforts to learn more about the mother she never knew are met with hostility. What really happened eighteen years ago when her father fled the island with his infant daughter? Why is everyone afraid to even talk about the woman he once loved? What is a ‚telesa‘ and why does even the mention of her name strike such fear in everyone Leila meets? And why is Leila having vivid nightmares about a mother she can’t remember?

Leila’s quest for truth takes a thrilling turn when she meets Daniel Tahi, irresistibly compelling with his island-warrior tattoos, breath-taking jade eyes and golden smile. What is it in Daniel’s mysterious past that binds him and Leila so closely?

When Leila discovers she is heir to a fiery birthright, she must choose between the Sisterhood and the boy she loves. Can they overcome all that divides them – even the very elements?

Mistwalker von Naomi Fraser

A dangerous encounter…

In the seaside village of Whitby, something sinister lurks beneath the guise of Gothic festivities. Martial arts expert, Simone Woods sets out to find the truth about her mother’s strange disappearance, but fate intervenes when she is stopped by a man who appears out of thin air. His kryptonite is her sharp wooden comb, and she believes she escaped, until she wakes up in hospital with a thirst for blood. She never expected to turn into a vampire with the royal gift of the mist—the ability to turn immortals into vapour and teleport them anywhere on Earth.

The vampire prince who will hunt her down…

Juliun Cel Batrin has dreamed of his bride for centuries. Yet, he never imagined she would try to stake him or that he would draw her blood and transfer the power of the mist. But from the moment she resisted his compulsion and fought back, he knew she would not be an easy conquest. Proving to his sexy, independent bride that he is the one will test his conscience—and his control.

An all-consuming desire that threatens everything…

Justice for all she has lost burns within her heart. Armed with weapons and the mist, Simone will take no prisoners. She doesn’t want anything to do with Juliun—but isn’t prepared for the intense blood-lust he stirs within her or the dangerous seduction of her heart. But when an ancient evil offers her an exchange, Simone must choose between playing safe and staying alive or risking everything for a better future.

Frankenstein’s Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech’s Brave New Beasts von Emily Anthes

Fluorescent fish that glow near pollution. Dolphins with prosthetic fins. Robot-armoured beetles that military handlers can send on spy missions. Beloved pets resurrected from DNA. Scientists have already begun to create these high-tech hybrids, mostly to serve human whims and needs. What if a cow could be engineered to no longer feel pain – should we design a herd that would assuage our guilt over eating meat? Shouldn’t we create it?

Popular science writer Emily Anthes travels around the globe to see how humans are inventing the fauna of the future, from the Roslin Institute, the Scottish birthplace of Dolly the Sheep, where scientists are trying to clone an endangered mountain lion to a ‘pharm’ where chickens are modified to lay eggs laced with cancer-fighting drugs. Frankenstein’s Cat is an eye-opening exploration of weird science – and how we are playing god in the animal world.

Wanted: Dead or Undead von Angela Scott

Trace Monroe doesn’t believe in luck. He never has. But when a fiery-headed cowgirl saunters through the saloon doors, wielding shotguns and a know-how for killing the living dead, he believes he just may be the luckiest man alive.

Trace wants to join Red’s posse, but she prefers to work alone–less messy that way. In order to become her traveling companion, Trace has to agree to her terms: no names, no questions, and if he gets bit, he can’t beg for mercy when she severs his brain stem.

He agrees, knowing only that Red is the sharpest shooter he’s ever encountered. The fact she’s stunning hasn’t escaped his attention either.

What he doesn’t know, is that Red has a very good reason to be on top of her game. She not only has the answer for how they can all outlive the plague taking over the wild, wild west, she IS the answer.

Origin: A Technothriller von J.A. Konrath

Thriller writer J.A. Konrath, author of the Lt. Jack Daniels series, digs into the vaults and unearths a technohorror tale from the depths of hell…

1906 – Something is discovered by workers digging the Panama Canal. Something dormant. Sinister. Very much alive.

2009 – Project Samhain. A secret underground government installation begun 103 years ago in New Mexico. The best minds in the world have been recruited to study the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind. But the century of peaceful research is about to end.

Because it just woke up.

When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert , he has no idea he’s been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon.

He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan.

But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn’t just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…

The List – A Thriller: A Technothriller von J.A. Konrath

A billionaire Senator with money to burn…
A thirty year old science experiment, about to be revealed…
Seven people, marked for death, not for what they know, but for what they are…

THE LIST is a bit of a departure for Konrath. It’s a technothriller about a group of ten people who each have tattoos of numbers on the bottoms their feet, and don’t know why.

One of them, a Chicago Homicide cop named Tom Mankowski, has had one of these strange tattoos since birth. When he investigates a violent murder and discovers the victim also has a tattooed number, it sets the ball rolling for an adventure of historic proportions.

To say more would give away too much.

Like the Jack Daniels series, THE LIST combines laugh out loud humor with serious suspense and thrills.

It’s an accord O’Brien believes the local police will fulfill. But when authorities drag their feet on the investigation, O’Brien finds the promise he made to his dead wife is about to conflict with the promise he made to the woman who was savagely attacked.

Soon O’Brien is plunging deep into the dark world of human trafficking and sexual slavery. O’Brien finds that an old case he never solved in Miami resurrects it’s head on the banks of an ancient river and tracks him.

O’Brien is tossed into a deadly cat-and-mouse game where the only vow he can make is to stop an evil antagonist with a twisted, Godlike complex that’s hellbent on sacrificing O’Brien to a greater cause.

When a tragic accident leaves them stranded in the mountains, Kimberly must use her shaky skills to save Mason and survive the elements. Suddenly, fighting is the last thing on their minds as they must rely on each other if they want to live.
