Coming Soon In Mysteries!
Anne Perry - A New York Christmas
The year is 1904. Twenty-three-year-old Jemima Pitt, the daughter of
Thomas Pitt, head of the Special Branch of the Metropolitan Police, is
crossing the Atlantic as companion to Delphinia Cardew, who is to marry
the aristocratic Brent Albright in a high-society New York wedding—a
grand affair that will join together two fabulously wealthy families,
titans of the international financial world.
But Jemima senses
a mysterious shadow darkening the occasion. Missing from the
festivities is Delphinia’s mother, Maria, who is marked by disgrace.
Nearly sixteen years ago, Maria abandoned young Delphinia and
disappeared—and now the Albrights refuse to mention her name. But when
Harley, the groom’s charismatic brother, asks Jemima to help him search
for Maria and forestall the scandal that would surely follow if the
prodigal parent turned up at the wedding, she agrees to assist him.
From Hell’s Kitchen to Fifth Avenue, the Lower East Side to Central
Park, Jemima trudges through strange, snowy streets, asking questions
but getting few answers—and never suspecting that she is walking into
mortal danger, from which not even a handsome young police officer named
Patrick Flannery may be able to protect her.
Anne Perry - Blood On The Water

The tragedy is no accident. As commander of the River Police, Monk
should handle the case, but the investigation is turned over to the
commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. An Egyptian man is swiftly
caught, tried, and sentenced to die. But almost as quickly, Monk
presents evidence that Habib Beshara, though a nasty piece of work, was
elsewhere at the time of the blast. The investigation, now in complete
disarray, is hastily turned over to Monk.
Is the crime
connected with the soon-to-be-opened Suez Canal, which will enormously
benefit wealthy British shipping companies? Or did all of those innocent
people drown to ensure the death of just one? How did the bomber board
the ship, and how did he manage to escape? Is he an anarchist or a
Backed up by his astute wife, Hester, and his old
reliable friend Oliver Rathbone, Monk vows to find answers—but instead
finds himself treading the dangerous waters of international intrigue,
his questions politely turned aside by a formidable array of the
powerful and privileged. Events twist and turn like the Thames itself,
leading to the shattering moment when Monk realizes, perhaps too late,
that he is the next target.
