A mysterious letter sends Bear Walker on a journey 30 years into his past, back to the town of Bannack, Montana, where old ghosts still linger and a man’s deeds live after him. Unfortunately, Bear is accompanied by Mad Muldoon, Eureka Gulch’s most noticeable lunatic and one-time cannibal, who begged to come along so he could visit his Montana kinfolk one last time...and then remembers, too late, why he escaped from them in the first place. As Bear Walker’s friends from Eureka Gulch race to rescue him from the clutches of a scheming con artist, they find both Bear and themselves caught up in old sins and long regrets, played out in a deadly game in which nothing is quite what it seems...and jokers and one-eyed jacks are wild. 1.

Barring the usual teenage pranks, all seems peaceful at Philly Prep, the private school in Philadelphia where Amanda Pepper teaches English. No doubt the money that appears to be missing from funds collected to aid victims of a catastrophic hurricane Down South will turn up. Probably the rumor that some of Amanda’s students have discovered the thrills of gambling is totally unfounded. In any case, Amanda has other things to think about. Her husband, private investigator C. K. MacKenzie, is struggling to help his Louisiana kinfolk reconstruct their post-hurricane lives. Her friend Sasha’s stepmother has just committed suicide - although, according to Sasha, Phoebe Ennis would never have killed herself, especially not while having a drink and wearing a red silk blouse and red sandals with four-inch heels. Amanda isn’t persuaded but reluctantly agrees to help investigate the woman’s demise, though the evidence for foul play is slim. True, the middle-aged compulsive collector of knickknacks wasn’t universally loved. Phoebe’s own son hated her and she bored her friends to death with hints of her ´´royal” lineage. And with four marriages behind her, she was already preparing to announce her renewed availability on the Net. But when another woman is found dead in Phoebe’s house, it becomes clear that something is indeed murderously amiss, and much closer to home than Amanda or anyone else could have imagined. All’s Well That Ends is the final book in Gillian Roberts’s acclaimed Amanda Pepper series. It’s also the best, irresistibly intelligent, and richly entertaining. Amanda’s farewell adventure brings the genius of ´´the Dorothy Parker of mystery writers” (Nancy Pickard) into full flower, and the bloom is sweet and a wonder to behold. 1. Language: English.

Tai Randolph doesn’t want to hear about homicide. She’s had enough of the dark and the dangerous, and decides some time out of Atlanta is exactly what she needs to put the recent spate of corpses behind her. It’s an idyllic vision: selling her wares at the Savannah Civil War Expo, attending a few Confederate reenactments, and perhaps a little romantic rendezvousing with Trey, who has agreed to put aside the corporate security agent routine and join her for a long weekend in her hometown. But in the South, the past is never truly past; it tends to rise again. In Tai’s case, it shows up as her tattooed heartbreaker of an ex-boyfriend desperate for her help. He spins a tale of betrayal, deceit, and a stolen Civil War artifact that Tai agrees to help him recover. As it turns out, Trey’s on the case too, representing a wealthy competing client after the same prize. As the lovers square off against each other, Tai discovers that her complicated boyfriend makes an even more intriguing adversary when he reveals the ferociously the South, the past is never past. Tai Randolph doesn’t want to hear about homicide. She’s had enough competitive streak under his cool Armani exterior. But where there’s money, there’s usually murder—this time involving the KKK and Tai’s unapologetically unreconstructed kinfolk. As she unravels the clues to a 150-year-old mystery, she digs up secrets from her own past and Trey’s, forcing a confrontation with a ruthless killer—and with her own willingness to do whatever it takes to save everything that matters. 1.
