7. The Inspector Barlach Mysteries The Judge and His Hangman and Suspicion (Large Print 16pt) - Friedrich D. Rrenmatt

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This volume offers bracing new translations of two precursors to the modern detective novel by Friedrich Drrenmatt' whose genre - bending mysteries recall the work of Alain Robbe - Grillet and anticipate the postmodern fictions of Paul Auster and other contemporary neo - noir novelists. Both mysteries follow Inspector Barlach as he moves through worlds in which the distinction between crime and justice seems to have vanished. In The Judge and His Hangman' Barlach forgoes the arrest of a murderer in order to manipulate him into killing another' more elusive criminal. And in Suspicion' Barlach pursues a former Nazi doctor by checking into his clinic with the hope of forcing him to reveal himself. The result is two thrillers that bring existential philosophy and the detective genre into dazzling convergence.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In classic noir tradition, English Professor Karen Pelletier gains a client when her office door opens and Trouble walks in. The dog, a Rottweiler, brings with him a famous Private Eye novelist and a problem. And since Sunnye Hardcastle (a Patricia Cornwell lookalike) will be a featured speaker in the English Department's upcoming conference on the murder mystery (from a Feminist Perspective), Karen is intrigued. The next thing you know, one midnight someone rushes out of the Enfield library with an armload of rare books. In fact, the library is missing a truckload of its treasures. Then a theif is found dead in the stacks, his neck broken. With a real private eye on the case, the hunt is on - for the manuscript of Hammett's famous novel, The Maltese Falcon, for the missing books, and for potential murder suspects. This sparkling fifth entry in an award - nominated series riffs the hardboiled genre and several sacred icons. What is truth? What is fiction? No one seems certain. Perhaps most frustrated is Karen's boyfriend, Massachusetts police lieutenant Charlie Piotrowski, a man having trouble dividing his personal and professional life, let alone translating modern academic - speak. But then, don't we all?

John M. Daniel has worked as a bookseller, freelance writer, editor, entertainer, and teacher. He is now a small-press literary book publisher in California. He has taught fiction writing at UCLA Extension and Santa Barbara Adult Education and is on the faculty of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. www.danielpublishing.com

Former Chief Warrant Officer Sam Blackman lost a leg in Iraq and emerged from the V.A. hospital in Asheville, NC, as a bitter civilian without a job or a future. Now he and his partner, Nakayla Robertson, have opened a detective agency. Their first client, a quirky elderly woman in a retirement community, wants Sam to right a wrong she committed more than 70 years ago. Her victim was F. Scott Fitzgerald.

But the sealed lockbox disappears, a security guard is killed, and Sam's final military case has followed him from Iraq. Are these mysteries connected? Or is one a ruse luring him into the crosshairs of his enemies? Mark de Castrique, an adjunct professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, grew up in western North Carolina. The Fitzgerald Ruse is his second Sam Blackman mystery. http://mark-et-al.com
