#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, a producer of the Fox hit show Bones , is back with her fifteenth ´´pulse-pounding´´ (Publishers Weekly) novel featuring North America´s favorite forensic anthropologist, Tempe Brennan-a story of infanticide and murder set in the high stakes, high danger world of diamond mining. Beneath a diamond´s perfect surface lies a story of violence and greed. Just like bones... In a run-down Montreal apartment, Tempe finds heartbreaking evidence of three innocent lives ended. The landlord says Alma Rogers lives there-is she the same woman who checked into a city hospital as Amy Roberts, then fled before doctors could treat her uncontrolled bleeding? Is she Alva Rodriguez, sought by a man who appeared at the crime scene? Heading up an investigation crackling with the sexual tension of past intimacies, Tempe leads homicide detective Andrew Ryan and police sergeant Ollie Hasty along the woman´s trail and into the farthest reaches of mining country-where the grim industry of unearthing diamonds exacts a price in blood. And where the truths the unlikely trio uncovers are more sinister than they could have imagined.
Elle Newmark´s richly seductive prose brings to life the color and scandal of 15th-century Venice. Through Luciano, a street urchin apprenticed to a great chef in the palace of the doge, Newmark tells a wicked tale of political and papal intrigue. In Venice where every whisper is a secret or a lie, Luciano´s initiation into the chef´s spicy world makes for deliciously suspenseful listening. The Book of Unholy Mischief is more than terrific historical drama; its a love story, an investigation into ancient religious secrets that haunt us today, and its a story of intrigue replete with pulse-pounding chase scenes, murderous assassins, torture chambers and conniving, desperate characters. It´s beautifully written, authentically detailed, and fiendishly well-plotted. Listeners will want their friends to read or listen to it so they can talk about it over dinner in their favorite Italian restaurant. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Raul Esparza.
