Wolf Winter

Author:

Cecilia Ekback

Synopsis:

There are six homesteads on Blackasen Mountain. A day's journey away lies the empty town. It comes to life just once, in winter, when the Church summons her people through the snows. But now it is summer, and new settlers have come. It is their two youngest daughters who find the dead man. Their father is away. And whether stubborn, or stupid, or scared for her girls, their mother will not let it rest. From the wife who's unconcerned when her husband is absent for three days, to the man who laughs when he hears his brother is dead, to the priest who doesn't care, she asks and asks her questions, digging at the secrets of the mountain. They say a wolf made those wounds. But what wild animal cuts a body so clean?

Seven For A Secret

Author:

Lyndsay Faye

Synopsis:

New York, 1846. The beautiful Mrs Lucy Adams hurtles through the gathering storm on a freezing St Valentine's evening. She stumbles, terrified, into the headquarters of the newly formed NYPD, and copper star Timothy Wilde finds himself drawn into a thorny maze when she reports a horrifying robbery: her family, she says, has been stolen. Timothy is hardened to the injustices of life in the unforgiving city he's grown up in, but that doesn't mean he accepts them. The worst danger on the streets is the blackbirders: slave-catchers whose inhuman trade is not merely legal; it's law enforcement. Now Timothy, along with his wayward brother Valentine, is about to bring the fight right to the heart of the corrupt political machine he was hired to defend...
