0.94 x 9.32 x 6.24 Inches; 224 pages; Lawrence Block's legions of fans have heralded the return of classic Bernie Rhodenbarr books to print. Now, with The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian, readers can complete their Rhodenbarr collection with this, the fifth and final of Dutton's reissues. As always for the intrepid bookseller-by-day, burglar-by-night, a simple job leads to bigger things. First up, Bernie the bookseller is asked by a Manhattan collector to appraise his impressive library. He does so, and while in the apartment building, makes off with a terrific cache of rare stamps. Then, upon returning home he finds best friend Carolyn Kaiser in tears. Her beloved cat has been abducted, and the ransom is a painting by Mondrian, currently on display in a museum and nearly impossible to steal. Nearly. But then Bernie remembers seeing another Mondrian hanging somewhere...in the book collector's apartment. Before too long, the painting is gone, a body turns up and the police are knocking on Bernie's door. Guess who their number one suspect is?

1.4 x 9.4 x 6.3 Inches; 352 pages;
Detective John Cardinal is on the hunt for an ingenious killer even as he mourns his own wife’s tragic death in this thriller of heart-stopping suspense
Autumn has arrived in Algonquin Bay, and with it an unusual spate of suicides. The most shocking victim yet is Detective John Cardinal’s wife, who has finally succumbed to her battle with manic depression. As Cardinal takes time to grieve, his partner, Lise Delorme, handles an unsavory assignment: a young girl appears in a series of unspeakable photos being traded online, and background elements indicate she lives in Algonquin Bay. Delorme is desperate to find the girl before she suffers more abuse.
When Cardinal receives a string of hateful anonymous notes about his wife’s death, he begins to suspect homicide. His colleagues believe he is too distraught to think clearly, and he’s forced to investigate alone. In doing so, he comes up against a brand of killer neither he—nor the reader—has ever seen before.
In his most masterful and thrilling novel yet, Giles Blunt confirms his reputation as a rising international star in crime fiction, and positions Detective John Cardinal among the finest characters in the genre.

88 Booth, Stephen Blind to the Bones A Crime Novel
Scribner 2003 074323796X / 9780743237963 Book Club Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
1.19 x 9.34 x 6.26 Inches; 432 pages; Book Club Edition

Something sinister is happening on the desolate moors of England's Peak District. The villagers of Withens are dying. Nineteen-year-old Emma Renshaw disappeared two years ago. Her body has never been found, and her parents still cling to the hope that she may be alive.

Now, Neil Granger, one of Emma's former housemates, has been killed in a particularly grotesque way. What was Neil doing out on the moor by the deserted, rat-filled railway tunnel where his bludgeoned remains were discovered? Is there a link between Neil's death and Emma's disappearance? Why didn't Neil offer Emma a ride to the station on the day she vanished? Or did he? Had he been hiding the truth? And what is the significance of Emma's bloodied cellular phone?

While Detective Sergeant Diane Fry focuses on Emma's possible murder -- now a cold case -- her colleague Ben Cooper takes a temporary assignment to probe rural crime. His first task is to investigate a series of burglaries in and around Withens. Thieves have hit nearly every house that has valuables, and even the church has been plundered. Only one family seems to be exempt from the break-ins: the Oxleys. Descended from the workmen who built the tunnels that run two hundred feet below the village, they stick to their own like the sheep on the hillsides, passing on secret knowledge through the generations.

Into the tempest that is Withens come Cooper and Fry, two people who share an emotion-filled professional and personal history, and who must again deal with each other as their separate cases gradually converge. But winning the trust of the locals and establishing a link between the deaths is not their only challenge. What other secrets does the village hold? And even if Cooper and Fry can find the answers, can the guilty ever be brought to justice?

Acknowledged to be one of the most gifted of the new generation of crime writers, Stephen Booth gives us a richly nuanced, brilliantly evoked novel sure to win him many new accolades.

89 Booth, Stephen Dancing with the Virgins A Constable Ben Cooper Novel
Scribner 2001 0743216903 / 9780743216906 Book Club Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
1.12 x 9.48 x 6.43 Inches; 381 pages; Book Club Edition "She was spread against the ground in a final arabesque, in a fatal pirouette or the last fling of an abandoned tango....A dead woman dancing. She looked like a dead woman, dancing."


Stephen Booth, one of the most acclaimed new voices in crime fiction, takes us to a remote region of northern England where a prehistoric ring of stones, the Nine Virgins, harbors a dark legend. With winter looming, a tenth figure soon joins the circle: the body of young cyclist Jenny Weston, whose limbs are carefully arranged in death to parody a woman dancing.

Weeks earlier, another woman, Maggie Crew, was attacked nearby, her face savagely cut open. Is there a maniac on the loose, knifing women at random? Maggie may hold the answer, but she has no memory of the attack. The painful images are buried deep in her wounded psyche. It will take time and patience to convince Maggie to face the demons of her past.

But are the two crimes -- Jenny's murder and Maggie's assault -- linked by something other than geography? Was there a prior connection between the two women? Why was Jenny cycling alone on that cool November day? What precious object did she carry in a pouch around her waist? And what of other mysterious people in the region -- two drifters who practice strange rituals, a Peak Park ranger with a shameful secret, a desperate farmer whose own children fear him?

Detectives Ben Cooper and Diane Fry struggle to make sense of a motiveless murder and of their own relationship, which increasingly seems past repair. Where once there was attraction, now there is antagonism. But personal problems must wait. The moors have witnessed more bloodshed than either Ben or Diane realizes, and violence is to beget more violence before Jenny's killer is found.

A brooding, stylish psychological thriller, deeply evocative of a very special place, Dancing with the Virgins confirms Stephen Booth's reputation as a gifted author of richly nuanced crime fiction.
