Scarpetta

Description: Vem är jagad och vem är jägare - vem är offer, vem är förövare? I den sextonde boken om rättsmedicinaren Kay Scarpetta ställer Patricia Cornwell dessa klassiska frågeställningar i kriminallitteraturen på sin spets.
Kay Scarpetta lämnar sin rättsmedicinska praktik i South Carolina och tar ett uppdrag i New York, där polisen har anlitat henne för att undersöka en psykiskt sjuk patient. Den handbojade och bundna patienten Oscar Bane vägrar prata med någon annan än henne. Den historia han berättar visar sig vara den mest makabra hon någonsin hört. Är Oscar Bane en psykiskt sjuk kriminell, en stalker fixerad vid Scarpetta - eller är hans paranoida historia sann?

Liars and Saints

Liars and Saints

Description: Opening with a wedding and ending with a funeral, Maile Meloy stuffs everything imaginable in between, and manages to maintain a cool, elegant prose style throughout. Liars and Saints, Meloy's debut novel, following her story collection Half in Love, chronicles the life of the Santerre family, who sin with the gusto of true Catholics. Written in a series of short story-like vignettes, the family's saga is told in turn by every member, from Yvette the matriarch down to T.J., her great-grandson. We start out with a relatively run of the mill family secret, when in the 1950s Yvette sends daughter Margot off to a French convent for the duration of her teenage pregnancy. As the decades pass, the transgressions become wilder and more melodramatic, as if the Santerres are trying to keep up with the times by way of their naughty acts. What makes the novel work is that all the while, Meloy maintains a quiet, slightly wry tone: illicit lovemaking and bloody mary mixing are recounted with the same equanimity. She also gets just right the tone of each era. When Yvette's other daughter Clarissa marries a jolly lawyer in the early 60s, he sends a telegram to Yvette: "HITCHED. THANKS FOR BEAUTIFUL DAUGHER. PROGENY PROMISED TO POPE." Likewise, in the 1970s the characters talk just groovy enough, and the 80s have a wised-up ring to them. Most multi-generational sagas are dull forays into sentimentalism, but in the aptly titled Liars and Saints, Meloy has written a corker.

Body Double

Body Double

BODY DOUBLE scared the heck out of me. Do you really need to know anything else? It might well be the most frightening novel I have read thus far. If THE COLOR PURPLE can demonstrate the triumphs that the human spirit can attain, then BODY DOUBLE illustrates the depths that can be plumbed by the quiet demon within.
