Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

The foul deed is committed during the contest’s final round. Only five riddles separate the contestants from the million-dollar cash prize when someone finds the sweet smell of success too intoxicating to leave to chance. Now the contest creator is dead and the answers stolen from his wallet, and it’s up to Wolfe to follow the trail of clues to a source disturbingly close to home. Introduction by Robert Crais “It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery.

In 1988, Frank Magnuson, a young man struggling with life’s curve balls, was set to testify against a Crip kingpin who along with three other men perpetrated a robbery of a Denver restaurant.

At just before midnight in June of 1989, two young men lay dead with a third left for dead. Ten Minutes till Midnight takes the reader into the very depths of Hell as two of these innocent men experience twenty insane moments of pure horror.

Alicia moves from rural Connecticut to Washington, D.C., to join James, her boyfriend of three years. Cruelly abandoned by him on the day she arrives, a chance encounter with a mysterious stranger changes her life forever. Thirteen years her senior, Alexander Michael de Vris is handsome, charming, rich and brilliant - and maddeningly enigmatic.

Sympathetic - and impressed by her ability - Alex helps her win a position at the Center for Strategic Studies. But not all is well in Washington. Little by little, she slowly awakens to the fact that she's stumbled into the midst of a sinister conspiracy to assassinate the President, and that she'll join the growing list of victims if anyone realizes she's uncovered the plot. Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Most importantly, is the mysterious Alexander de Vris loyal to the President? Or is he too a traitor?
