No Coming Back by Keith Houghton, Amazon Kindle format

Eighteen years ago, Jenna Luckman disappeared, presumed murdered. Her boyfriend, Jake Olson, hasn't been home since. Now he's coming back to find her killer.

Since he last set foot in Harper, Minnesota, Jake's whole life has changed beyond recognition, but the place seems just as he left it. Small-town politics and gossip rule, and his return is big news.

When a body is discovered at the frozen Hangman Falls, Jake is beset by a snowstorm of anger and revenge. Hounded by grudges and feared by the townsfolk, Jake is determined to uncover the truth behind his girlfriend's disappearance. But he still has enemies in town and they have other plans for him.

Betrayed at every turn and unsure whom to trust, Jake's quest for the truth rekindles old rivalries and rouses ghosts that should never have been disturbed. He wants above all to find the peace of mind that has so long eluded him. But no man can escape his past.

A man walks into a bar …

Welcome to Troubled Waters, your friendly neighborhood watering hole in the Old Port of Portland, Maine, where that old joke takes on a life of its own amid a lively cast of characters: Jacob the gentle giant, Freddy the fixture, Quentin the troubled professor, Sean injured but ever resilient, wife and nurse Stella, and a female singer named Elvis. Linger over a brew, sing along with timeless classics belted out by Jacob and Elvis. Order up some of Stella's gotta-have fish chowder. Pause, ponder, raise a glass and return to the sea — if only in your mind.

Woven throughout this mystery are personal stories of hopes and dreams, loss and tears, the good, the bad and the criminally obsessed. Come on in and join the gang for a tale of tragedy and resilience, mystery and madness. There's nothing like a cup of brew and a good sense of humor to keep the wind in your sails in troubled times.

Whipping up Thanksgiving dinner can be stressful for anyone, but that goes double for the Field family. Everything has to be perfect, or they risk getting cut out of dominating patriarch Monty's lucrative will. That's where sisters Bernie and Libby's catering company, A Little Taste of Heaven, comes in. Surely with their lumpless mashed potatoes and to-die-for gravy, even the super-dysfunctional Fields can get along for one meal. But no one can dress up disaster when the turkey goes boom right in Monty's scowling face, sending him to that great dining room in the sky.

With everyone harboring their own cornucopia of secrets, discovering who wanted to carve up Monty won't be easy. Worse, the Field Mansion is draped under a snowstorm, trapping them with a killer determined to get more than his piece of the pie. Bernie and Libby will have to find out who the culprit is, fast, before the leftovers — and their chances of surviving — run out for good …

Welcome to an elite Connecticut kennel club where shocking secrets gnaw at the best of the breed and competition has a sharp — and deadly — bite …

As if raising her son Davey, training her rambunctious Poodle Faith for the show ring, and grooming fellow handler Sam Driver for romance aren't enough, Melanie Travis's entrée into the exclusive Belle Haven Kennel Club has been met with a grisly murder. Unfortunately, the only witnesses to the crime were the victim's startled pair of Beagles. And they aren't talking …

Melanie hadn't intended to do any serious snooping, what with coping with the unexpected arrival of an ex-husband out to get joint custody of the son he's never known. In need of some serious distraction, she's off to sniff out dangerous secrets … only to discover that everyone at Belle Haven has something damning to hide.

As the shocking truth slowly comes to light — and her own domestic drama moves center stage — Melanie finds herself eager to put the bite on a dogged killer who's desperate enough to strike again.

Along with their offbeat humor, the elderly residents provide Dana with several clues that suggest the recent murder of a wealthy politician's wife and a bizarre string of serial killings are somehow connected to Leona's death.

Before long, Dana's investigation puts her own life in jeopardy and causes serious conflicts in her relationship with homicide detective Al Bruno.

Season of the Witch by Arni Thorarinsson, Amazon Kindle format

When the editors at Reykjavik-based The Afternoon News decide to expand the newspaper into northern Iceland — with their crime writer Einar as its sole reporter on location — the journalist feels as though he has stepped back in time. Compared to the hustle and bustle of the capital, where the nation's economic and social crises rear their heads on a daily basis, the small town of Akureyri feels slow, quiet, and terribly old-fashioned.

So it's only fitting that one of Einar's first assignments is to cover a college theater production of Loftur the Sorcerer, an Icelandic folktale of ambition and greed. But that supposedly ancient history becomes ominously relevant when a local woman dies after falling overboard during a corporate boating retreat. All evidence indicates an accident, but when the victim's mother cries foul play, kindhearted Einar agrees to investigate. Just days later, the lead actor in Loftur vanishes, leaving the locals reeling — and Einar unconvinced that a single village could be so accident prone. Keenly perceptive and hungry for the truth, Einar begins to chip away at the quaint small-town facade, uncovering a tangled web of power and greed that threatens to devour the historic community for good.

Two brothers. One dead, executed by extremists on a grainy video. The other forged into a top undercover agent. But now, Sam Capra has reason to believe that his brother, Danny, may be alive. And if Danny has been living a secret life these past years, where has he been — and what has he become?

Sam's desperate search for his brother leads him into a modern heart of darkness: the Russian elite inner circle, a group of ruthless ex-KGB billionaires who owe fealty to Russia's corrupt president, Morozov. One of these men wants Morozov dead. And Danny will be the one to kill him — on American soil.

To save his brother — and to save the world from certain war — Sam, along with his mysterious partner, Mila, must stop Danny from killing Morozov. The mission will take Sam from the slums of Pakistan to the hipster galleries of Brooklyn to the Caribbean playgrounds of the superrich. And as Sam untangles the secret past locked in his brother's heart, he may be forced to make a choice between his brother — and the greater good …

When a minister's son is accused of murder, Brady doesn't know whom to trust …

Desmond Winters has had more trouble than a Unitarian minister deserves. Over six years ago, his wife disappeared with their fourteen-year-old daughter, promising to return someday. The daughter came back after six months; the wife never did. The experience scarred Desmond's son, Marc, who acted out by getting involved with cocaine smugglers and marrying an exotic dancer. Through all his troubles, Des was counseled by Brady Coyne, a sensitive lawyer to Boston's elite. But now something has happened that even Brady may not be able to fix: Marc's wife is dead, and the minister's son is the prime suspect.

Marc finds Maggie dead in their boat, and calls the police immediately. Brady doesn't believe Marc murdered his wife, but he also knows that in this family, anything is possible. It could be drugs, it could be the missing mother — but a beautiful young girl is dead, and Brady Coyne needs to know why.
