Death Down Under (Ruby Bay Mystery #1)
by Samantha Silver
Miki is used to sliding headfirst on a sled at a hundred miles an hour, but this might just be the craziest thing she’s ever done…
When World Champion skeleton athlete Miki King fails a doping test after taking the wrong flu medication, she’s exiled to Australia, to run her aunt’s cafe in a small beachside resort town until all the media attention blows over back home in America.
Expecting a break from her hectic life, Miki never expects to find a body on her second day in Ruby Bay. And to make matters worse, she was seen having an argument with the man the day before.
With the local police chief convinced she’s the culprit, Miki – with the help of her new coworker Emily and a rather crazy old woman named Mary – has to find the murderer before she’s arrested and makes the headlines again, destroying any chance she might have of reviving her career.
**Includes a recipe for lamingtons, a popular Australian desert***
Death Down Under is a full-length, humerous cozy mystery and the first book in the Ruby Bay mystery series set in Australia.

The Talhoffer Society
by Michael Edelson
He came to stop it, she came to win it. The tournament will change their lives forever. If they survive.
If you readily frighten, you should never learn fencing.
As a champion longsword fencer, Jack Fischer receives many invitations to tournaments, but none like this: few details, no return address and thousands of dollars in cash that is his to keep whether he accepts or not. He wants nothing to do with it until a multi-national task force recruits him to help bring down the organizers, a society of modern duelists who fight to the death for the gratification of wealthy patrons.
Surrounded by opulence, glamour and the respect of powerful benefactors, Jack finds himself fighting the desire to prove himself in combat and vindicate his life’s work. His loyalties are further strained when he meets Frederica, a woman whose skill with a sword rivals his own. Struggling with a disease that is ravaging her body, she has come to the tournament to win the means to pay for her treatment or to die trying.
But underneath the pomp, the lofty ideals and promised wealth, neither the tournament nor its organizers are what they seem, and Jack is forced to face an impossible choice between love, self preservation and honor in a place where the only truth worth finding may lie in a pool of his own blood.
