Intermission

Author:

Owen Martell

Synopsis:

New York, June 1961. The Bill Evans Trio, featuring twenty-five-year-old Scott LaFaro on bass, play a series of concerts at the Village Vanguard that will go down in musical history. Shortly afterwards, LaFaro is killed in a car accident, and Evans disappears.

It also conjures a pivotal moment in American music and culture - a unique representation of the jazz scene in the early 1960s.

The Ghost Of The Mary Celeste

Author:

Valerie Martin

Synopsis:

In 1872 the American merchant vessel MARY CELESTE was discovered adrift off the coast of Spain; her crew were never found. A rather hard-up young writer named Arthur Conan Doyle hears of the ship and decides to write an outlandish short story about what took place. It causes quite a sensation back in the United States, particularly for sought-after Philadelphia psychic Violet Petra and skeptical journalist Phoebe Grant, who is seeking to expose Petra as a fraud. Then there is the family of the MARY CELESTE's captain, linked to the sea for generations and marked repeatedly by tragedy. In salons and on rough seas, at seances and in the imagination of a genius, these stories converge in unexpected ways as the mystery of the ghost ship deepens. Will the sea yield its secrets?

Recently distracted by the arrival of her and Jamie's second son, Magnus, Isabel Dalhousie, editor of the REVIEW OF APPLIED ETHICS, has a lot to worry about, including the delayed next issue.

Bea has staged a potentially dangerous liaison involving enigmatic plastic surgeon Tony MacUspaig, who may not be quite what he claims. Intrigued, Isabel dives into the mystery. And when the truth finally reveals itself, she must conclude that no one, including herself, is immune to misunderstandings, or the neurotic fantasies that arise from keeping secrets...

Alexander McCall Smith

Synopsis:

Ulf Varg works in Malmo's Department of Sensitive Crimes. Like all Scandinavian detectives, he has his issues. Amongst these are his unresolved feelings for his co-worker Anna; his impatience over the seeming incompetence of his irritating colleague Blomquist; and his concerns for the health of his hearing-impaired, lip-reading dog Martin. Ulf, along with his colleagues, is called upon to investigate a bizarre attack on a market trader, the disappearance of a handsome man who may or may not exist, and the affairs of a variety of young female students whose relationships with one another leave a great deal to be desired. With spirit and good humour, Ulf and his team come to realise that the world is a puzzling place, where werewolves exist and fish might have something to teach us...
