Few, it seems, can resist Tillie’s cooking. But is this Mrs. Bluebeard working alone? Or is she part of a bigger, more diabolical ´´poison trust´´? And can Chicago’s finest get to her before her latest husband, already mortally ill, dies? Poison Widow is a true-crime aficionado’s feast, arsenic-laced and stuffed with tasty noir morsels. 1.

Jeff Davis Swaine digs up evidence for a Raleigh, North Carolina, trial law firm. When a client comes home to find his McMansion burglarized - and his new wife´s dog dead in the kitchen - the man suspects his ex-wife. But this is someone far more dangerous. From a stolen minivan, washed-up jazz bassist Leonard Noblac is performing his ´´perfect jazz album of felonies´´ to punish the zeros in the soulless suburb of Rocky Falls. He composes a series of musical compositions and meticulously plans out symbolic crimes to go along with each one, believing the notoriety from his crimes will finally make him famous for his music. Used to working from the shadow at the back of the stage, and bitter from his failure to make it in the New York jazz world and his move to the suburbs, Leonard puts down a throbbing beat of crime and destruction. As Leonard’s crimes give voice to his rage, he finds himself able to improvise like never before, with terrifying results. Jeff must find Leonard and save the teenager and newborn he has kidnapped before the musician can write them into the fiery crescendo of Leonard’s album. Author Bryan Gilmer teaches news writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A former newspaper reporter and radio newsreader, he is also the author of the mystery Kill the Story. 1.

Want total chaos? Mix ghosts, with a sexy werewolf, a crazy monkey, and a totally lost reaper! Jazz Sweeney has just inherited a mortuary, which would be so bad, except she has also inherited the ghosts that go with it. Life suddenly changes for Jazz when she receives an inheritance from her long lost grandfather. She bids farewell to her job at Happy Days Burgers and sets out to convert Blackwell Rest into a nightclub. But she has a few surprises coming her way. It would seem that her estranged grandfather´s accidental death, might not have been an accident. If this isn´t bad enough, old man Blackwell´s pet monkey now needs a home, and the ghosts that come along with her inheritance, need a new psychic detective to help them with all their unfinished business, which usually involves murder. And then things get worse! A murder victim is discovered in the cemetery, and he just happens to be a member of the biker club known as the Death Dogs. To complicate matters, Jazz may have been a witness to the murder, kind of. Brock Logan, the leader of the Death Dogs, has taken an interest in her, which opens up a whole new can of worms. He´s one hot bad boy, and exactly the kind of guy she doesn´t need in her life. Caught in the middle of a biker war and a murder investigation, Jazz begins to think that working at Happy Days Burgers might not have been such a bad deal. 1. Language: English.

Death wears pumps. And that isn´t even the worst part of her day. Being a reaper isn´t nearly as easy as flipping hamburgers, but Jazz has never been one to shrug off responsibility. Still, she isn´t happy about visiting the state penitentiary to reap the soul of a serial killer. Years ago, Theodore Salazar killed two people near the Eastwood River, but that´s all over and done with. With the infamous serial killer dead, the city can breathe a sigh of relief. That relief doesn´t last long. The morning after Salazar´s death, the killings start up again. The police think they are copycat killings, but Jazz knows better. There´s a killer on the loose in Eastwood, and it isn´t a copycat or Salazar´s ghost. Eastwood is about to discover that the legend of the Chain Man is real, and deadly. Brock Logan, president of the Death Dogs MC, is still chasing Jazz, and she´s very tempted to let him catch her, but then the leader of the Shadow Riders reveals something that makes her doubt Brock and the Death Dogs. If that isn´t enough chaos, Sir Edward suddenly develops an addiction to TV game shows. It´s all part of life when you are Jazz the Reaper. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julie Kelly.
