In the stew and dazzle of New York City, savvy, irreverent Fritz Malone–who Susan Isaacs called “the perfect balance of noir P.I. and decent guy”–is embroiled in a string of grisly murders that drags him behind the lurid headlines into the tangled affairs of some the city’s most beautiful people and their ugly truths. When two women linked with charismatic late-night TV personality Marshall Fox are found brutally slain in Central Park, Fox becomes the prime suspect and is charged with the murders. At the tabloid trial, one of Fox’s ex-lovers, Robin Burrell, is called to testify–and is instantly thrust into the media’s harsh spotlight. Shaken by a subsequent onslaught of hate mail, Robin goes to Fritz Malone for help. Malone has barely begun to investigate when Robin is found sadistically murdered in her Upper West Side brownstone, hands and feet shackled and a shard of mirror protruding from her neck. But it’s another gory detail that confounds both Malone and Megan Lamb, the troubled NYPD detective officially assigned to the case. Though Fox is in custody the third victim’s right hand has been placed over her heart and pinned with a four-inch nail, just as in the killings he’s accused of. Is this a copycat murder, or is the wrong man on trial? Teaming up with Detective Lamb, Malone delves deeper into Fox’s past, unpeeling the layers of the media darling’s secret life and developing an ever-increasing list of suspects for Robin’s murder. When yet another body turns up in Central Park, the message is clear: Get too close to Fox and get ready to die. And Malone is getting too close. In Cold Day in Hell, Richard Hawke has again given readers a tale about the dark side of the big city, a thriller that moves with breakneck speed toward a conclusion that is as shocking as it is unforgettable. Praise for Richard Hawke’s Speak of the Devil “Richard Hawke has managed what some writers spend a lifetime trying to accomplish: He has come up with a character and place that should entertain in countless stories to come.” –Rocky Mountain News “Fast-moving, first-rate . . . Hawke’s plot grabs us by the throat. . . . He keeps the suspense mounting.” –The Washington Post “[A] bang-bang thriller . . . We are absolutely powerless to stop reading.” –Chicago Tribune “Mr. Hawke’s [novel] tours the city . . . with unusual streetwise panache . . . but this isn’t a book that coasts on its urban geography. It lives by its wits, and its wits would work anywhere.” –The New York Times “A deftly paced debut that crackles and pops from page 1.” –Booklist (starred review) “Thrill-a-minute pacing and inspired plot twists.” –Newsday “[An] amazing thriller . . . Hawke’s dialogue is sharp and snappy and the plot moves with all the energy of New York City.” –Cleveland Plain Dealer “Hawke razzle-dazzles us with . . . bada-bing narration and quirky, well-drawn characters.” –The Boston Globe “[Packed] with a breathless pace and hair-pin turns.” –South Florida Sun-Sentinel From the Hardcover edition.

A quirk of fate had bought author Suellen Holland to Papua New Guinea. It was the second in five years she had moved from one country to another. In 1956 she and her parents left India to start a new life in Australia and 1960 they packed up again and went to live to Papua New Guinea. Little did Suellen know this land and its people would change her life dramatically, mold and shape her character and bring her once-in-a-lifetime adventures and experiences beyond belief. As a European child in pre-independent Papua New Guinea, Suellens experiences hold a unique place in history. From the black volcanic sand her dusted from her feet, to the virgin coral reef she snorkeled over, to the plantations she visited, the World War 11 tunnels she explored and the haus bois and meris who shared her life. Black Sand and Betel Nut is a frank and moving account of Suellens extraordinary childhood. Her collection of stories recall the halcyon days of her childhood and pays tribute to a place she will always call home.

Aunty Pinau sets out to buy a "wind catcher" and, to her little nephew Jo-Jo's surprise, returns with a small banyan tree! Through the years, with Jo-Jo's faithful care the little tree grows and grows, putting out more and more roots until finally the tree forms a huge umbrella that provides welcome relief from the hot Hawaiian sun.

Bette Stoll has to intuit her own way. Born a middle child in a troubled family, neglected and lonely after the death of her grandmother when she is only seven, she takes comfort riding her horse alone in the virgin woods on her father’s Michigan farm. When in 1957 his mental breakdown transplants the family to Southern California, they join a national migration West. Bette, a naïve farm girl, is dropped at the onset of adolescence into the wild circus of the psychedelic Sixties. Her love affair with the runaway scion of a wealthy Mexican family leads her into a labyrinth of tragedy she struggles to escape. Through all her back roads and detours, Bette stays honed on her path of becoming a writer. This is the chronicle of Bette’s perceptions of what happened and how her perceptions shaped her. This is the truth as she experienced it. No doubt these events will be remembered differently by others. This is not their story. This is Bette’s story, and I am Bette. So difficult were some memories, I could approach them only by assuming the guise of a third-person narrator. More courageously, I may have written an autobiography wherein witnesses would be interviewed and facts verified. Because it is mined from my memories, I call this a memoir. The journals I have kept since adolescence helped reconstruct the happenings and refresh the ambiance, but no event is invented. It has taken me twice the number of decades recorded in this chronicle to believe my formative experiences may have significance for others. At the same time, I am glad to have finally recorded Roberto’s story. We are all mere specks flashing in a vast cosmos. What you hold in your hands is the culmination of my life’s spark.

Winner of six Nebula and two Hugo awards for her fiction, Connie Willis is acclaimed for her gifted imagination and bold invention. Here are eleven of her finest stories, surprising tales in which the impossible becomes real, the real becomes impossible, and strangeness lurks at every turn. The end of the world comes not with a bang but a series of whimpers over many years in "The Last of the Winnebagos." The terror of pain and dying gives birth to a startling truth about the nature of the stars, a principle known as the "Schwarzschild Radius." In "Spice Pogrom," an outrageous colony in outer space becomes the setting for a screwball comedy of bizarre complications, mistaken identities, far-too-friendly aliens - and even true love.
