Skin-and-Blond

Skin and Blond (Blond Noir Book 1)

by V. J. Chambers


Dark. Raw. Gritty. Blond.
from USA Today bestselling author V. J. Chambers

Ever since blond detective Ivy Stern got herself kicked off the police force for “sexual conduct unbecoming an officer,” she’s been slumming it as a private investigator. But she’s handling the fact her life is in shambles just fine, thank you very much. She manages to get up to open her office by the crack of noon every day, no matter how hungover she is or whose bed she woke up in.

When Miles Pike, head of homicide and her it’s-complicated-ex-boyfriend, refers a distraught man to her, Ivy’s ready to get cracking. Her new client is frustrated that the police are treating what he thinks is clearly his sister’s murder as a run-of-the-mill missing persons case.

Well, Ivy’s good with murder. Real good. And this case has her intrigued. There’s no evidence that the victim has been killed, but she’s gone, leaving everything behind from her cell phone to her credit cards. Everything except her bed sheets.

Black Plumes

by Margery Allingham


The slashing of a valuable painting at the renowned Ivory Gallery in London, one of the most prestigious art galleries in the world – followed by the murder of the proprietor’s son-in-law, Robert, sets the stage for another finely tuned Allingham mystery. The proprietor’s mother, 90-year-old Gabrielle Ivory, holds the key to the web of intrigue and danger that permeates the gallery.

Gabrielle Ivory was once a society beauty. But now, nearing 90, she’s largely disregarded by the younger members of the Ivory clan, who like to imagine Granny as rather a relic of a dead era. That’s a mistake, and it’s not their only one. A series of malicious attacks is threatening the Ivory Gallery in London. Robert Ivory and his high-strung wife, frantic to preserve the status-quo, want to chalk it all up to practical jokes gone wrong. But Gabrielle is not inclined to collude in this delusion.

A brilliant standalone mystery from the author of the beloved Campion books. Golden Age Crime at its intriguing best.

Season of the Assassin (Detective Jimmy Parisi Thriller series)

by Thomas Laird


In 1965, a killer butchered a whole dormitory of student nurses.

Investigating officer Jake Parisi located a suspect, Carl Anglin, but as soon as the witnesses vanished or died, the FBI got involved — and Jake died in a tragic accident.

Then Anglin disappeared…

Thirty years on and Jimmy Parisi, is a homicide detective, like his father.

A frighteningly similar massacre occurs on his watch, and Jimmy doesn’t believe in coincidences.

The hunt for Anglin begins again, and Jimmy discovers that not all the nurses in the original case died — there was one survivor.

But why is she in a mental institution, and why is no one permitted to visit her?

Both Anglin and Jimmy need to find her — Anglin to silence her, Jimmy to put Anglin away.

Will Jimmy be able to put this case and his father to rest?

In this gruesome thriller by author Thomas Laird, the two major American traumas of the ‘60s — J.F.K.’s assassination and the Vietnam War — collide.
