The first Merry Folger Nantucket mystery When Rusty Mason, scion of one of Nantucket's oldest and wealthiest families, is found dead in a flooded cranberry bog one foggy fall night, thirty-two-year-old detective Merry Folger is faced with her first murder case. Merry is the daughter of the local police chief and granddaughter of his predecessor; her father is a strict boss and Merry feels pressure to go the extra mile to prove her promotion to detective isn’t just nepotism. But the Mason murder is a demanding first test. Merry’s investigation brings to light all the tensions that plague the tiny community of Nantucket: the decades-old grudges, the skyrocketing real estate that only wealthy weekenders can afford, the resentments of the old Nantucket families who are barely keeping their homes and heritage fishing businesses alive. But Merry knows the island and its politics in a way only a local can. From the Trade Paperback edition.

When Joe Duarte, a fishing boat captain with decades of experience on the wild seas off Nantucket, is swept overboard during a spring storm, his death is pronounced accidental. But his estranged daughter, Del, is convinced it’s murder. She moves back to Nantucket to get closer to the truth, and enlists her old friend, detective Merry Folger, to help. But Del is also hiding secrets of her own, and the police are not inclined to help her with what they see as a wild goose chase. Merry has to defy her boss—her father—in order to investigate.

​Francine Mathews' no-nonsense Nantucket police detective, Merry Folger, is back on the case after nineteen years. ​Death on Nantucket, the fifth Merry Folger Mystery, is full of regional charm, a strong sense of local history, and foggy New England Island atmosphere. Spencer Murphy is a national treasure. A famous Vietnam War correspondent who escaped captivity in Southeast Asia, he made a fortune off of his books and television appearances. But Spence is growing forgetful with age; he’s started to wander and even fails to come home one night. When a body is discovered at Step Above, the sprawling Murphy house near Steps Beach, Nantucket police detective Meredith Folger is called in to investigate. The timing couldn’t be worse: It’s the Fourth of July, and tourists are arriving in droves to celebrate on Nantucket’s beaches, so the police force is spread thin. On top of that Merry is planning her wedding to cranberry farmer Peter Mason, and her new boss, an ex-Chicago police chief with an aggressive management strategy, seems to be trying to force her to quit. Merry can’t conclude the Murphy investigation quickly enough for him. As she grapples with a family of unreliable storytellers—some incapable of recalling the past, and others determined that it never be known—she suspects that the truth may be forever out of reach, trapped in the failing brain of a man whose whole life may be a lie.

The fourth Merry Folger nantucket mystery After a trying case, detective Merry Folger begrudgingly agrees to take a leave from work to meet her fussy future in-laws in Greenwich, but it isn’t long before she is summoned back to Nantucket. The body of a 21-year-old was discovered in the frigid waters of the Sound in the days leading up to the annual Christmas celebration, and the death isn’t sitting well with Merry’s father, the local police chief, who fears the track marks on the victim’s arms may be indicative of a growing drug problem on the island. Feeling a constant need to live up to her father’s expectations, Merry rushes home to her fiancé, Peter’s, annoyance, only to find that heroin isn’t the only destructive force in Nantucket. Soon after Merry arrives, she feels stonewalled by her father. If he was so desperate for her help, why won’t he share the details of the case with her? What is he hiding? For the first time, Merry fears she cannot trust her lifelong role model—her own father—let alone figure out why a young athlete and Harvard scholar ended up dead in the frigid, storm-churned Sound.

The third Merry Folger Nantucket mystery Word travels fast in Nantucket when two children and their dog discover a skeleton in the dunes of the cold Sconset beach. Could the dead woman be the latest victim of the serial killer who has been terrorizing mainland Massachusetts? The FBI seems to think so and sends their forensic psychiatrist to the scene. But Police Detective Merry Folger has her own suspicions, and starts looking into a cold case that has long baffled Nantucket police: the disappearance of a beautiful Harvard-educated psychiatrist seven years ago. When Merry starts inquiring into the tenuous leads in that long-cold case, she stumbles into a web of violent passions and buried crimes, a web that continues to ensnare victims. Two more women are murdered, giving fuel to the FBI’s quest for a serial killer. But Merry, well-aware of the tangled histories of some of the island’s longtime residents, is convinced the only way forward is digging deeper into the past.

Dale Sanborn ist Autor – und ein Ekelpaket. Für seine Bücher schlachtet er hemmungslos die Leben seiner Familie, Freunde und Bekannten aus. Kein Wunder also, dass er in einer kleinen Ferienhütte auf dem malerischen Cape Cod ermordet aufgefunden wird. Der ehemalige Kapitän Asey Mayo macht sich gemeinsam mit einer Urlauberin auf die Jagd nach dem Mörder. Die älteren Herrschaften schlagen sich durch ein dichtes Netz aus Intrigen und Verdächtigen – fast jeder hier hätte einen guten Grund gehabt, Dale Sanborn umzubringen. Und die Zeit drängt: Wenn das ungewöhnliche Ermittlerteam den wahren Täter nicht innerhalb von drei Tagen findet, wird ein Unschuldiger angeklagt.

September 1941. Die Lebensmittelrationierung, die Angriffe der englischen Luftwaffe, die nächtliche Ausgangssperre – all das macht das tägliche Leben in der deutschen Reichshauptstadt Berlin alles andere als angenehm. In der vom Krieg geschüttelten Stadt treiben zudem Mörder und tschechische Terroristen ihr Unwesen. Aber für Bernie Gunther ist die Arbeit im Morddezernat der Kripo am Alexanderplatz nach den Schrecken der Ostfront beinahe Erholung. Leider muss er alles stehen- und liegenlassen – auch seine hübsche Kneipenbekanntschaft –, als sein alter Chef Reinhard Heydrich, inzwischen stellvertretender Reichsprotektor in Böhmen und Mähren, ihn nach Prag beordert. Dort soll er ein Wochenende in dessen Landhaus verbringen. Neben Heydrich geben sich dort zahlreiche andere unangenehme Persönlichkeiten aus SA und SS ein Stelldichein. Doch dann wird eine Leiche in einem von innen abgeschlossenen Zimmer gefunden, und Bernie muss den Täter finden. Und er muss es schnell tun, denn Heydrich kann einen ungelösten Mordfall nicht auf sich sitzenlassen ...
