A Dorie Lennox, Swing Town Mystery
Publisher: Thalia Press

Originally published by Minotaur Books in 2002, this is the second mystery in this series.

Europe is at War. Nazi bombers are hammering London. Wendell Willkie is giving Roosevelt a run for his money. In Kansas City, Dorie Lennox and her partner Amos Haddam are trying to keep the blond and beautiful Thalia Hines from destroying herself. It's not easy.

The girl has every reason to escape the cold stone mansion where her mother lies dying. Eveline Hines is a decorated war hero during the First World War. Now she's struggling to protect her only daughter from men who lust over her inheritance even more than her curves.

In the rich milieu of a bygone time, an America preparing for war provides color for the intimate portrait of a powerful woman bearing witness to the destruction of all she loves. For the Hines family, nothing will ever be the same in this powerful story of maternal love and family secrets, and the disastrous attempts to mingle them.

This book was previously published as titled Dead Barchetta.

Music tutor by day and tribute band guitarist by night, Matt "Lerxst" Johnston has woman problems. Well, maybe for a musician that's normal.

And … there's grandma, and her "herb garden," legal only if you have a card, and definitely not in Virginia! Normal? Heh.

Before Lerxst can find normal, he must learn the truth about his would-be killer, his family, and himself. And what a long, strange trip it is …

Jim O'Connor, the Republican senator from Massachusetts, is charming, intelligent, well-spoken — and a future contender for the presidency. A handsome, charismatic family man, his ongoing affair with a beautiful journalist could prematurely shatter his White House hopes — a problem that is seriously compounded when he discovers his mistress brutally murdered in her Boston apartment.

Suddenly O'Connor is a homicide suspect — with November on the horizon and a tough re-election campaign spinning out of control. And now the Senator must hunt down a killer in the capital of lies — in order to salvage a badly battered political career … and, perhaps, save his own life as well.

FX Orders Pilot for The Bridge

Bron | Broen

FX Networks has ordered a pilot for The Bridge, based on the Swedish/Danish television co-production of Bron | Broen.

The 10-episode first season of the Nordic crime drama aired in late 2011 on SVT (Sweden) and DR (Denmark). A second season has been ordered, which is set to begin production later this year.

The storyline is set in Malmö and Copenhagen and follows the investigation of a spectacular murder that has taken place in the middle of the Öresund bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark — the body of a woman is found cut in half, each half in one country — forcing the Swedish and Danish police to work closely together to solve the crime.

The US version is expected to take place in El Paso (Texas) and Juárez (Chihuahua), where the American and Mexican police must cooperate to hunt down a serial killer.

Watch a trailer for the DVD/Blu-ray release for the first season of the original series (now available in the UK but not yet in the US) below.

Bloody Murdock by Robert J. Ray

Bloody Murdock
Robert J. Ray
A Matt Murdock Mystery
Publisher: Camel Press

This is the first mystery (of five) in this series, originally published in 1986 by St. Martin's Press.

PI and ex-cop Matt Murdock is picky about the cases he takes on. Being a bodyguard isn’t his favorite gig, especially when the client is a high-handed number-cruncher like Ellis Dean. But Murdock is short on funds, and the case is a puzzler. It doesn’t hurt that it features the death, accidental or otherwise, of a beautiful woman.

Murdock has a weakness for damsels in distress, even after it’s a little late for rescue. Gayla Jean Kirkwood, killed in a car wreck on the Pacific Coast Highway, was a good-time girl, high-class waitress and wannabe starlet. Dean fires Murdock and ends up dead, clearing the way for Murdock to sign on with Gayla Jean’s sister, Meg Kirkwood, a gorgeous dead ringer for her sister. The case will offer other female distractions, including a fresh-faced and overly eager girl reporter. Who would want Gayla Jean dead? Was it a scorned lover? Someone at the chic club where she worked? The men who paid to photograph her naked? Or was she simply collateral — the real target being the Mexican actor driving the doomed car?

As his investigation continues, Murdock and his client will discover just how dirty deals in Hollywood can get. If they live long enough.
