Ten miles off the coast of Brittany lie the fabled Glénan Islands. Boasting sparkling white sands and crystal-clear waters, they seem perfectly idyllic, until one day in May, three bodies wash up on shore. At first glance the deaths appear accidental, but as the identities of the victims come to light, Commissaire Dupin is pulled back into action for a case of what seems to be cold-blooded murder. Ever viewed as an outsider in a region full of myths and traditions, Dupin finds himself drawn deep into the history of the land. To get to the bottom of the case, he must tangle with treasure hunters, militant marine biologists, and dangerous divers. The investigation leads him further into the perilous, beautiful world of Glénan, as he discovers that there's more to the picturesque islands than meets the eye. Steeped in the enchanting atmosphere of Brittany and peppered with wry humor, Murder on Brittany Shores is a superbly plotted mystery that marks the return of Jean-Luc Bannalec's international bestselling series starring the cantankerous, coffee-swigging Commissaire Dupin.

“Kemal Kayankaya is the ultimate outsider among hard-boiled private eyes.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review OVER 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE To rescue a kidnapped prostitute, Kemal Kayankaya must face some of Germany’s most depraved and dangerous criminals. Fortunately, some of them are his friends... Love is never easy—especially when your girlfriend is an illegal Thai prostitute who has been kidnapped (again) by a gang of sex traffickers. Fortunately for the hapless fiancé, wisecracking gumshoe Kemal Kayankaya is on the case. The son of a Turkish garbage collector, he knows a thing or two about living in the ethnic fringes of the ugliest German city of them all: Frankfurt. Kayankaya plunges into the city’s underbelly, where the police don’t care if you live or die, and the powerful view an illegal alien as just another paycheck. One Man, One Murder populates its pages with unforgettable characters, whip-smart dialogue, and a connoisseur’s collection of grim details. But it is Arjouni’s dead-on description of contemporary Europe’s racial politics, vacuous nationalism, and so- cial injustice that make his novels rise above the rest. From the Trade Paperback edition.

For seven hundred years the Immortal warrior Tain was held captive and tortured by a powerful demon, and retreated into madness to escape his pain. Set free by his brothers, Tain has wandered the world, but he’s drawn to Los Angeles, a city divided by demon lords and vampire masters, the death-magic creatures barely kept in line by strict rules and the paranormal police. Samantha Taylor, detective in the paranormal division, is committed to bringing down drug-selling demons and vampires who turn too many victims. Her stakeout of a demon club is blown by the appearance of a man with amazing power, who kills the attacking demons with one burst of magic. Samantha is shocked to see the man is Tain, the Immortal she helped rescue, whose healing touch burns her. Tain is back, and he needs Samantha’s help. Young demon women are being murdered, and though Tain has no love for demons, he recognizes that they are innocents. He’s also powerfully drawn to Samantha, a half demon, and fears his pull to her means he hasn’t healed from his ordeal. Tain reveals to Samantha more about herself than she’s comfortable knowing, but though she’s falling for Tain, she knows he’ll never allow himself to be tied to demonkind again. When the killer endangers them both, as well as people they love, Tain and Samantha must solve the case together and fight the growing, powerful attraction between them, a battle they are steadily losing. Welcome back to the world of the Immortals, where vamps, weres, demons, witches, and Immortals warriors exist in the real world, and the forces of life magic and death magic struggle for balance. The Redeeming is a full-length novel of 100,000 words, which can be read as a standalone.

Katharina’s husband isn’t coming home for the weekend—again—so she’s on her own. When their chaotic daughter Helli has a nosebleed, Kat has to dash off to school to pick her up. Then their son, Alex, announces he’s bringing his new girlfriend home for the first time. Kat’s best friend from college is coming around tonight too, and she’s wondering if she should try to seduce him—but first she needs to do the shopping, the vacuuming and the laundry, deal with an exploding clothes-dryer, find their neighbour’s severed thumb in the front yard and catch a couple of escaped rodents. When she’s got all that sorted, perhaps she’ll have time to think about the thing she’s been trying not to think about—the lump she’s just found in her breast. Because you can’t just die and leave a huge mess for someone else to clean up...can you? And wasn’t there supposed to be more to life than this? Mareike Krügel lives in Schleswig-Holstein with her husband and their two children. She has received numerous literary awards, including the Friedrich Hebbel Prize. Look at Me is her fourth novel, and the first to be translated into English.
