A MURDER ON WALL STREET
Owen Parr pulls off a crowd-pleasing coup in the first entry in his Joey Mancuso/Father Dominic O’Brian series—a perfect blending of the hard-boiled and intellectual schools of detecting. Joey, who got kicked out of the police department by means of a small frame, is the ex-cop. The women are a fiery FBI agent, (Joey’s elusive Cuban girl friend), a glamorous “researcher”, and perhaps most memorable of all, Joey’s mentor and ex-partner, Lucifer–officially Lucy, but the nickname says it all.
Wicked of the Christmas Past
Bestselling author Carina Christien is dead, her apparent suicide covered up for a year. There’s no shortage of suspects, but this is one case that won’t be wrapped up neatly. Confessions ring false, intrigue runs high, but even a bevy of disgruntled ghostwriters is no match for the girl they call the Ghost Whisperer. It’s mistletoe and murder for Christmas in this fast-paced, quirky, fourth installment of the Paranormal in Manhattan Mystery Series.
