Barbary Coast: The Complete Series

Barbary Coast
The Complete Series

William Shatner stars as Jeff Cable, an undercover agent patrolling the wild streets of 1880s San Francisco, in this entertaining, if also short-lived, ABC series that aired in Fall 1975. Filled with casinos and saloons, this bustling slice of post–Gold Rush California runs on corruption, greed, and violence. It's Agent Cable's job to crack down on the numerous criminals who have made a home there.

Even top public officials can't be trusted, so Cable weaves elaborate ruses to uncover the Barbary Coast's many plots. He also relies on the slick but beleaguered Cash Conover (Doug McClure … but played by Dennis Cole in the pilot), proprietor of the Golden Gate Casino. Conover reluctantly puts his business and well-being on the line for Cable time and again. The charismatic pair often find the cards stacked against them, but that doesn't stop them from having a rollicking good time as they police a town mired in vigilante justice.

The Glades: Season Four

The Glades
Season Four

This fourth — and final — season of the A&E series is packed with even more mystery, intrigue and fun from Florida's favorite homicide investigator, the disarmingly charming Detective Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore).

From haunted plantations to rum-soaked shot girls and even a zombie apocalypse, Longworth is once again solving murders that can only happen in the Sunshine State.

This season also promises more drama on the personal front for Longworth, Carlos, Colleen and Daniel as friends and relatives from near and far arrive on the scene. But the big question remains to be answered as Longworth waits for Callie to accept his marriage proposal … or not.

Graceland: Season One

Graceland
Season One

This gritty, tension-laced crime drama is inspired by actual events, and features a hot young cast led by Daniel Sunjata and Aaron Tveit.

It seems like a sweet deal when new FBI Agent Mike Warren's (Tveit) first assignment lands him in a beautiful L.A. beachfront mansion with other young undercover government agents, including his idol, legendary FBI agent Paul Briggs (Sunjata). But loyalties are tested and lives are put on the line when Warren is ordered to secretly investigate Briggs in this action-packed USA Network series.

The Killing: Season Three

The Killing
Season Three

This third season of the AMC murder mystery series begins one year after the close of the Rosie Larsen case, with Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) no longer working as a Seattle homicide detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's (Joel Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that may connect to a previous murder investigated by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.

New Tricks
Season Ten

The old dogs of the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad are about to welcome a few new faces. But first, Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman) and her loyal team — Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman), Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong), and Steve McAndrew (Denis Lawson) — will solve their final cases together, bringing justice to decades-old murders that stumped London's Metropolitan Police.

After Brian's reckless behavior endangers his place on the team, brainy Danny Griffin (Nicholas Lyndhurst) steps in and rubs the rest of the squad the wrong way. Later, Sandra makes a choice that means a new boss for UCOS: feisty, fearless DCI Sasha Miller (Tamzin Outhwaite).

New Tricks: Season Ten on DVD

True Blood: Season Six

True Blood
Season Six

HBO's sexy, scary, wildly entertaining series based on the Sookie Stackhouse, Southern Vampire novels by Charlaine Harris, returns for a sixth season. In addition to returning characters led by human/faerie hybrid Sookie (Anna Paquin), her unlikely vampire ally Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), and newly reconstituted supervamp Bill (Stephen Moyer), Season 6 6 introduces several jarring storylines that threaten what little sense of normalcy remains in and around Bon Temps.

As "Billith" comes to terms with his newfound powers after emerging from a pool of blood, Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard) declares open season on vampires, replete with novel anti-vamp weapons and a high-tech internment camp.

Meanwhile, Sookie and Jason steel themselves for an encounter with the killer of their parents: the mysterious and ancient Warlow, whose identity remains a troubling mystery as the season unfolds.

Please Welcome Mystery Author Anne Cleeland

Omnimystery News: Guest Post by Anne Cleeland
with Anne Cleeland

We are delighted to welcome mystery author Anne Cleeland to Omnimystery News.

Anne's second mystery in her New Scotland Yard series is Murder in Retribution (Kensington Books; July 2014 hardcover, audiobook and ebook formats and available to pre-order) and when we asked her why she chose to set her series in England, she replied with, "Write What You Know — Or Maybe Don't: When Americans Write About British Detectives".

I write a mystery series about British detectives, even though I am neither British nor a detective. As a matter of fact, so does Elizabeth George, Martha Grimes, and Deborah Crombie. When you consider that the basic rule of writing is that you should write what you know, this may seem a little strange.

But there's a rich history of British detective stories — going all the way back to the golden age of detective fiction — so perhaps it's not so strange after all. Ngaio Marsh gave us Chief Inspector Alleyn, P.D. James gave us Inspector Dagleish, and Ruth Rendell gave us Chief Inspector Wexford; between them, the reader comes away with a very definite sense of how the understated British detective handles murder and mayhem — in contrast to the conspicuous American detective, with his sharp elbows and brash confidence.

Then there's the allure of Scotland Yard — probably the most iconic headquarters in terms of detective fiction — where all these larger-than-life characters solve crimes. Throw in an aristocrat or two, and you have the perfect formula for a story — I certainly thought so, and if you can judge from the popularity of the Masterpiece Mystery series, a lot of other people think so, too.

And even though you have to try to get the protocols right, law enforcement everywhere follows a certain pattern, no matter what the setting; even Scotland Yard has cubicle-folk who are completing for real offices, and rookies who are hungry to be assigned to major crimes — not to mention love and lust, percolating just below the surface. Of course, an author has to add twists to the tried-and-true formula to keep it interesting; in my series, the Chief Inspector is breaking bad, and his Irish rookie partner is trying to be his moral compass, with only limited success.

So write what you know — but don't be afraid to write what you love, too.

Editor's note: Murder in Thrall, the first mystery in this series, was published in hardcover by Kensington Books in June 2013; the paperback will be available July 1st, 2014.

Murder in Retribution by Anne Cleeland

Murder in Retribution
Anne Cleeland
A New Scotland Yard Mystery

Despite their investigative prowess, Chief Inspector Michael Sinclair, Lord Acton, and rookie detective Kathleen Doyle stir more than a few feathers at CID Headquarters when their relationship comes to light. But office politics quickly become trivial when a rash of underworld murders shatters London's normally austere façade. With a growing list of successfully solved cases to her name, the ever-dauntless Doyle shakes off the gossip and sets out to investigate the escalating turf war.

As the body count climbs, Doyle uncovers a seedy world where fractious members of the Russian mafia and an Irish terrorist group are fighting for control of a lucrative underground business. But their crooked deals and volleying acts of revenge are almost too much for Scotland Yard to keep up with, and when Doyle notices that Acton seems unusually troubled by the crimes, she begins to wonder what sparked the conflict in the first place.

Perhaps there's nothing more to the murders than under-the-table business dealings gone awry. Or perhaps a single act of vigilante justice fanned the flames that ignited a vicious turf war. As Doyle and Acton fight not to become the next victims, they'll find that the truth may be best left unspoken, and retribution may be best left to fate.

Flesh and Blood
Michael Lister
A John Jordan Mystery
Publisher: Pulpwood Press

In this diverse collection of cases (short stories), John Jordan investigates the Shroud of Turin, a pregnant virgin, a daring prison break, a Hurricane Katrina orphan who might just be the Second Coming, a desperate woman who sleeps with one too many men, a bloody body on the rec yard, a mystery that turns on a single observation, and a murder in which John himself is the prime suspect — all this as he deals with depression and battles alcoholism.

These stories are puzzles, whodunits, and enigmas, but they are much more. John Jordan doesn't just solve crime, he investigates the hidden heart of humanity and the mysterious world in which we live. Here are temporal answers and eternal questions, and at the center of it all, a conflicted man of faith and doubt, flawed, but faithful, who ministers mercy even as he thirsts for justice.

As Rebecca discovers there's a lot more to Richie than she thought, and a lot more to like than she imagined, she soon fears not only for her life, but also her heart.

A Novel of Suspense

On the day she was abducted, Annie O'Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals — sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape — her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

Dear Old Dead by Jane Haddam
A Gregor Demarkian Mystery (9th in series)
Publisher: Open Road

A media kingpin is dead and the chief suspect is a modern-day saint …

Michael Pride could have been a world-class surgeon, but his good intentions got the best of him. He opened a clinic in one of New York's roughest neighborhoods, and stuck around when gangs, drugs, and guns turned it into a war zone. Supporting his mission is Charles van Straadt, a media titan with a knack for incendiary headlines and a soft spot for good works. When a sex scandal threatens to derail Pride's clinic, van Straadt is the only one who stands by him — until the mogul is poisoned, and the doctor appears to be the only person who could have done it.

Former FBI agent Gregor Demarkian has a chance of proving Pride's innocence. In a part of New York that feels more like Beirut than Broadway, it will take more than good works for the two of them to survive.

The Last Confession by Solomon Jones

The Last Confession by Solomon Jones
A Michael Coletti Mystery (1st in series)
Publisher: Minotaur Books

Having come of age on the mob-controlled streets of 1960's South Philly, Detective Mike Coletti learned early to walk the fine line between cops and criminals. That skill served him well during his thirty-one years in homicide. But it never stopped the nightmares. The screams in the sanctuary still haunt him, the sound of the gunshots still torment him, and the truth of the Confessional Murders still speaks to him, if only in his dreams.

Now, on the eve of Coletti's retirement, the priest whom he arrested for the decade-old crime is about to be put to death, and in one final nightmare, Coletti clearly sees the truth. The priest is innocent, and it all comes to light when the real killer reemerges and embarks on a killing spree that turns Philadelphia upside down. To set things right and stop the execution of an innocent man, Coletti must catch a mysterious killer who now calls himself the Angel of Death.

As the chase winds through art galleries and gritty streets, ancient prophecies and holy ground, the game intensifies, cultures collide, and Philly's best detective is forced to face his nightmarish past — a past that could very well destroy him.

The year is 1880, the place San Francisco. Intelligent, outspoken Sarah Woolson is a young woman with a goal and the fortitude to achieve it. She has always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. The trouble is, everyone believes women belong in the home — that it is not only unnatural, but against God's will for them to seek a career.

When Sarah finagles an interview with one of the city's most prestigious law firms, no one thinks she has a prayer of being hired. Except Sarah. Using her brains and a little subterfuge, she not only manages to become the firm's newest (and only female) associate attorney, she also acquires her first client — a lovely young society matron suspected of brutally stabbing to death her wealthy but abusive husband. Sarah is sure of her client's innocence, but the revelation of the woman's secret lover may make that innocence impossible to prove.

When four more victims fall prey to the killer's knife, Sarah fears she has bitten off more than she can chew. Bucking her boorish employer and the judicial system, Sarah finds herself embroiled in shady legal maneuvers, a daring Chinatown raid, and a secret and very scandalous sex club.

Both believe that Brano Sev, their enigmatic superior and himself a career secret policeman, is keeping them in the dark both about the details of the case and all its players and about the true motives of their investigation, but they can't figure out why. That is, until they learn that everything is connected to a seven-year-old murder, a seemingly insignificant murder that has had far-reaching consequences.
