Cruel As The Grave by Meg Elizabeth Atkins, Amazon Kindle format

A woman's body is found near Miller's bridge and an anonymous phone call is made. When Liz Farrell's uncle is taken in for questioning, life starts falling apart and Paula's words ring in Liz's ears: 'you always do the wrong thing for the right reasons.'

Liz tries and tries to bury her fears so that she can take care of her aunt Helen and fend off her meddling aunt Paula but it's just no use. The police are swarming around her naïve uncle but Liz eventually wins over Detective Chief Inspector Sheldon Hunter and together the two of them might be able to help clear Reggie's name. At least it seems that way — but nobody is talking to the police and even fewer people will talk to Liz.

When a devastating change occurs, Hunter has no choice but to close the case and Liz has nowhere to turn. Is Liz helping or is she dragging herself and her family deeper into trouble? Hunter and Farrell find themselves ever more deeply involved with the irreproachably genteel society of a small Cheshire town where, surely, nobody could have a motive for murder … or could they?

Three went in; one came out. For five years, no trace has been found of two high-school friends who went hiking in the woods near Nashville. The third teen, Amber Ryder, was discovered at the bottom of a ravine with a broken arm, head trauma — and zero memory of the horror that put her there.

What started as a cold case has become a fresh hell for forensic technician Georgia Morgan. Another woman's body is found in the woods, and it leads to the missing teens' remains. But while Georgia works with Amber to try and reawaken her memories, her gut tells her the worst is yet to come.

Homicide Detective Jake Bishop can't be sure whether Amber is an expert manipulator or the killer's next target. Either way, he's determined to protect Georgia. Because the deeper she digs into the past, the deadlier the secrets that emerge, and a nightmare years in the making is about to come to a bloody, terrifying end …

Worse yet, the yacht may have been hired to smuggle drugs.

As repairs on the yacht begin, workers soon find hidden drugs stashed inside the vessel. After Mike and Suzie collect the drugs and prepare to hand the packages over to the police, armed drug dealers invade their home in search of the stash. After a shootout leaves one of the gunmen dead and the other vowing to kill the boatyard directors, Mike is run off the road and badly injured in a motorcycle accident. While he recuperates, he and Suzie agree to let a director use their refitted yacht in a television pilot. As they head to Ibiza for the filming, Mike and Suzie have no clue that someone is trailing them, and that their adventure has just begun.

His associate Dani Trumball has family worries of her own to deal with, but she knows Bruce wouldn't ask for help without cause. Just as she and her team begin to investigate, the case gets even thornier: Frankie is missing, and evidence points to an Eldridge cover-up.

As the FBI launches a hunt for the boy, Dani knows something isn't right. Why would a minor's first offense earn such a harsh punishment? Unconvinced by the court documents, Dani is dogged in her pursuit of the truth that will save Frankie's future — if he still has one.

In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to a time before electricity, the Branning family faces a choice. Will they hoard their possessions in order to survive — or trust God to provide as they share their resources with those around them? Yesterday's world is gone. Family and community are all that remain. And the outage is revealing the worst in some.

Desperation can be dangerous when a killer lives among them.

Cold Heart by Karen Pullen

Cold Heart by Karen Pullen, a Stella Lavender Mystery (2nd in series)

Publisher: Five Star

Cold Heart by Karen Pullen, Amazon Kindle format

Motivated by her mother's long-ago unsolved abduction, Stella Lavender has joined the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation only to be severely challenged by her first assignment as an undercover drug agent. Stella works nights, buying drugs from paranoid drug dealers, gathering evidence to send them to prison or turn them into informants. She's great at the job because, as her boss says, "you don't look like a cop." But the physical danger and the necessary betrayals are getting to her. When she sees a chance to work a homicide, she'll always take it.

One afternoon Stella gives a hitchhiking teenager a ride to her babysitting job. Horror awaits them — the father lies dead in a pool of blood, and his toddler is missing. Stella joins the murder investigation as the puzzle quickly grows. The only physical evidence — a bloody fingerprint — matches no one associated with the victim. And most importantly, where is the toddler?

At the same time, Stella's personal life offers plenty of distractions. Her grandmother Fern, a free-spirited artist with male admirers wrapped around every one of her paint-stained fingers, needs Stella's help with expensive house repairs. And Stella's attraction to three very different men means her romantic life is, well, complicated.

Bloodthirsty by Marshall Karp, Amazon Kindle format

Barry Gerber, one of the most hated — and powerful — men in Hollywood, is a no-show for a red carpet event. The next morning he turns up dead in a trash can, killed in such a bizarre way that neither Detectives Mike Lomax nor Terry Biggs nor anyone in Forensics has ever seen anything like it before. Two days later, the prime suspect — another despised show-business bad boy — is found murdered in the same sadistic manner.

The list of suspects then becomes as long as the credits in a summer blockbuster. Everyone hated the murdered men. Biggs jokes that this could be an elaborate public service effort to make Hollywood a better place to live and work. But the two detectives soon find that all jokes are off as they wade through a daunting number of leads to uncover the identity of the next victim. What they stumble upon is a motive far more primal than they had ever imagined.
