Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in the new novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art... It was a stab in the dark. On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional. Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series. The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong. From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”

In den zehn Jahren ihres aufreibenden Berufes als Lieutenant der New Yorker Polizei hat die gewitzte, mutige Eve Dallas viel Schreckliches gesehen und, für eine so junge, schöne Frau wie sie, viel zu viel erlebt. Doch sie weiß, dass sie sich auf eines garantiert verlassen kann: auf ihren Instinkt. Bei der Jagd nach einem grausamen Serienmörder, der New York in lähmende Angst versetzt, gerät sie an den undurchsichtigen irischen Milliardär Roarke. Alle Indizien weisen darauf hin, dass er nicht so unschuldig ist, wie er vorgibt zu sein. Doch wider jede Vernunft sprechen Eves Gefühle eine andere Sprache. Sie lässt sich von einem hinreißenden Mann verführen, von dem sie nichts weiß, außer dass er als Killer verdächtigt wird – und ihr Herz erobert hat...

Ein flüchtiger Verbrecher überfällt einen Gefrierlaster voll beladen mit Eiskrem – in dem nach kurzer Schmelzphase auch noch eine gefrorene Leiche auftaucht. Kopfgeldjägerin Stephanie Plum schleust sich undercover in die Eiskremfabrik Bogart ein, um herauszufinden, wer die Mitarbeiter so eiskalt um die Ecke bringt. Ranger, Sicherheitsexperte und Stephanies größte Versuchung seit Vanilleeis mit Kirschen, arbeitet bei diesem Einsatz eng mit ihr zusammen – zu eng, wie Trentons heißester Cop Joe Morelli findet. Und Stephanie kann sich mal wieder nicht entscheiden zwischen zwei sexy Typen, Becher oder Waffel, Vanille oder Schoko. So süß war das Plum'sche Chaos noch nie!

The tinge of centuries colors the way we hear today’s near-death experiences and what we make of them. Why should some individuals tell of blissful heights of spiritual experience while others believe themselves at the depths, lost in the stars or consigned to hell? (Behind the scenes, every listener wonders: “And could that happen to me?”) Dancing Past the Dark: Distressing Near-Death Experiences, the first comprehensive exploration of disturbing NDEs and how people interpret them, is packed with solid information and first-person narratives that, although marked by dismaying and even terrifying features, turn out to have something vital to say about life itself. Sweeping from research findings to a review of the cultural evolution of hell through a thoughtful analysis of how individuals interpret and ascribe meaning to their near-death experiences, the author, a longtime researcher of these NDEs, brings study data and years of personal insights to the questions that swirl around the topic, providing a wealth of viewpoints and ways of thinking about the subject that will be new to many readers. “Engagingly written,” as one reviewer says, the book’s breadth makes this a landmark in the near-death literature, must reading for anyone curious about NDEs, especially readers wondering how to make sense of such an experience and caregivers in critical care, pastoral, therapeutic, and end-of-life settings. PMH Atwater says, “Dancing Past the Dark is what we have all been waiting for. ...This book is masterful—a must for any experiencer of a near-death state (no matter what kind), or a spiritual transformation, religious conversion, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, mystical and shamanic breakthroughs, or any type of encounter with the numinous. Narratives are one thing, the story experiencers tell, but understanding that story, finding meaning, is all important!"

A nameless victim. An unknown killer. An impossible case for Monika Paniatowski. Before she can even begin to track down the killer of the old woman dumped by the lonely canal, Monika Paniatowski needs to find out who she is - and no one seems to know. Even when her daughter Louisa provides the vital clue, it only makes life more difficult, because the Chief Constable - intent on making Paniatowski's life difficult - refused to let her follow the obvious trail. And it is not until there is a second, even more brutal, murder, that Paniatowski realises she will have to call on the help of her old mentor, ex-DCI Charlie Woodend.
