The ninth Commissario Ricciardi Neapolitan mystery is "noir with a heart, haunting and beautiful . . . A literary thriller of exceptional quality" (NB Magazine).Years ago, Vinnie Sannino left Naples on a ship bound for America, where he found fame and fortune as a boxer. But his gilded life in the new world came to an abrupt end when, during a fight, with a heavy punch to the head of his opponent, Vinnie killed a man in the ring.Now, Vinnie's back in Italy, pining for the woman he left behind. Cettina, however, is now a married woman. She was, at least, until her husband was recently found dead, killed by a single blow to the head. For Commissario Ricciardi, one of the most faceted cops in fiction, and his partner Maione, it is a going to be a long, rainy, week in Naples."Deep melancholy infuses the crafty whodunit plot of de Giovanni's superior ninth mystery set in 1930s Italy . . . Ricciardi, who's literally haunted by visions of the dead, continues to be one of the most nuanced and intriguing sleuths in contemporary crime fiction."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)"De Giovanni is one of the best historical crime writers out there. His Commissario Ricciardi novels, set during the fascist period in Italy, are intelligent and totally engrossing. Nameless Serenade is a perfect addition to the series, a really satisfying murder mystery, an insight into 1930s Naples and a thrilling chapter in the life of the Commissario. Lyrical prose and intriguing rounded characters contribute to making this one of the finest in the Ricciardi chronicles."-NB Magazine

Named one of the best books of 2018 by The Washington Post, The Seattle Times, and The Advocate Staggeringly brilliant . . . You ll start The Maze of Windermere with bewilderment, but you ll close it in awe.   The Washington Post Pitch perfect. New York Times Book Review When a drunken party guest challenges him to a late-night tennis match, Sandy Allison finds himself unexpectedly entangled in the monied world of Newport, Rhode Island. A former touring pro a little down on his luck, Sandy has nothing to stake against the vintage motorcycle his opponent wagers. But then Alice DuPont the young heiress to a Newport mansion called Windermere offers up her diamond necklace.   With this reckless wager begins a dazzling narrative odyssey that braids together four centuries of aspiration and adversity in this renowned seaside society capital. A witty and urbane bachelor of the Gilded Age embarks on a high-risk scheme to marry into a fortune, a young Henry James, soon to make his mark on the world, turns himself to his craft with harrowing social consequences, an aristocratic British officer during the American Revolution carries on a courtship that leads to murder, and, in Newport s earliest days, a tragically orphaned Quaker girl imagines a way forward for herself and the slave girl she has inherited.   Gregory Blake Smith weaves these intersecting worlds into a rich, brilliant tapestry. A deftly layered novel of love, ambition, and duplicity, The Maze at Windermere charts a voyage across the ages into the maze of the human heart.

He was once called Orphan X. As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from a children's home, raised and trained as part of a secret government initiative buried so deep that virtually no one knows it exists. But he broke with the programme, choosing instead to vanish off grid and use his formidable skill set to help those unable to protect themselves. One day, though, Evan's luck ran out . . . Ambushed, drugged, and spirited away, Evan wakes up in a locked room with no idea where he is or who has captured him. As he tries to piece together what's happened, testing his gilded prison and its highly trained guards for weaknesses, he receives a desperate call for help. With time running out, he will need to out-think, out-manoeuvre, and out-fight an opponent the likes of whom he's never encountered to have any chance of escape. He's got to save himself to protect those whose lives depend on him. Or die trying . . . The Nowhere Man delivers another masterclass in hi-octane thriller writing.
