When local cop Sean Devereaux, who enjoys skating close to the edge, does a favour for his attractive neighbour, he unwittingly exposes a web of deceit and corruption. As he investigates the murder of a 16-year-old Epsom 'princess' in his day job, his after-hours efforts have him stumbling into the aftermath of a scam involving senior colleagues, and he is soon enmeshed in an escalating cycle of kidnapping, murder and violent mayhem. With his unconventional ex-colleague-turned-security-specialist John Hale, Devereaux slowly begins to unravel the truth as the body count climbs and the stakes become personal. As an outwardly terse, street-savvy operator, Sean Devereaux emerges as an engaging and irreverent hero, becoming the catalyst for an absorbing, strangely uneasy murder mystery, set in unnervingly familiar surroundings. A superb blend of international-standard crime-writing with a strong local ambience that lures you in and delivers a strong and emotionally satisfying read.

A Catskills community is rocked by a dog who digs up a famous stolen diamond and Sicilians who have sworn a vendetta for a World War II crime. Sicily, World War II. The Allied landing has begun.

Young Danny and his ace dog love to fish and make two friends, both old men, who share their stream with him. Nature's generosity and Danny's skill is such that fish becomes a regular menu item at the pub. All goes swimmingly until one day, the dog digs up a pouch containing the long missing Isabela Pendant. More shocking, someone soon shoots the senior gentleman, the one who is married to toothsome Cynthia. He falls into the stream, but a young Protestant priest fishes out the dying man and hears his last confession. Chief McAvoy would like to know what it was, but Fr. John's lips are sealed. In Greene County, just to the north, a luxurious retirement home houses Don Vittorio Gianelli, brother of the long dead Contessa whose dazzling diamond has now reappeared. Chief McAvoy finds this coincidence hard to swallow. But no matter how he prods, no information falls his way. In the end, like a fisherman, he relies upon guile to reel in his killer... This atmospheric and unusually plotted novel balancing hardboiled and softer elements adds up to a knockout debut for Bill Stackhouse.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 13.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

When an animal rights activist is killed by a hit-and-run driver, music critic Theda Krakow can't get too upset. The victim cared more for wild animals than for people or for domesticated pets, such as the black-and-white cat Musetta that Theda adores. But when she learns that the victim was defying her own radical group to rescue feral cats from the ferocious winter storm, Theda decides to investigate. As Theda and her buddy Violet race to save these half-wild felines from the freezing New England winter, they realize the activist's death was more than an accident. When the threats become more personal and Musetta goes missing, Theda risks her reputation, and possibly her life, giving a whole new meaning to the word "deadline." Clea Simon is the author of three Theda Krakow mysteries: Mew is for Murder, Cattery Row, and Cries and Whiskers. She lives in Cambridge, MA, with her husband, Jon Garelick, and their cat, Musetta. www.cleasimon.com

Or did the whole bloody mess have something to do with that pricey collectible? With the white cat turning a deaf ear to her questions, Pru must tune in to Beauville's other pampered residents-from the dead man's elite social set to their equally spoiled pets-and learn the truth before her ex, a former New York cop, gets too close....

14. Cattery Row - Clea Simon

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

Spiky freelancer Theda Krakow has fallen on a bare patch. Changes at the newspaper have cut her regular assignments and magazine work is slim. When a call comes in asking her to profile Cool, a gifted musician who's being oddly reclusive, it's welcome relief from both Theda's man and money troubles. But even with work at hand, there are problems: Someone is stealing show cats. And both the feline - friendly Theda and her friend Violet, who runs the local shelter, are outraged. When a kindly cat breeder is implicated in the thefts, Theda resolves to uncover the culprits. But when a murder hits close to home, the circle of suspects widens to include family, an extortionist, and more . Theda is a great guide to the city, whether hanging out in her Cambridge neighborhood or enjoying the latest bands in the clubs, particularly Violet's brand of riot grrrl punk. She's less adept at sorting out her own heart, which largely belongs to her kitten, Musetta, but as a sleuth, she's razor - sharp.

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

Pru Marlowe isn't your ordinary animal psychic. A tough girl on the run from her own gift, Pru left the big city to return to her picturesque Berkshires hometown looking for a little peace. Too bad that her training as an animal behaviorist got her mixed up with Lily, a rescue dog, and Charles, her person. Now Charles is dead, and Lily looks good for it. After all, Lily is a pitbull, a fighting - ring dropout, and way too traumatized to give Pru a clear picture of what she has witnessed. But Pru knows something about bad girls trying to clean up, and, with a sense of justice strong enough to overcome her dislike of human society, she takes the case. Listening to the animals, Pru picks up clues - and learns there are secrets in the pretty little town that make murder look simple. Unable to tell anybody about her psychic abilities, uncertain at times about her own sanity, Pru comes to realize that if she clears Lily, she'll likely become the prime suspect - or the next victim. While the only creature she can totally trust is her crotchety tabby Wallis, Pru's got to uncover the real killer - and find a way to live with her gift - before the real beasts in the town savage her and those she has come to love. The first in the Pru Marlowe ''pet noir'' series.
