Hot on the heels of her phenomenal American debut, The Ice Princess, Camilla Läckberg brings readers back to the quiet, isolated fishing village in Sweden where dangerous secrets lie just beneath the community’s tranquil surface. During an unusually hot July, detective Patrik Hedstrom and Erica Falck are enjoying a rare week at home together, nervous and excited about the imminent birth of their first baby. Across town, however, a six-year-old boy makes a gruesome discovery that will ravage their little tourist community and catapult Patrik into the center of a terrifying murder case. The boy has stumbled upon the brutally murdered body of a young woman, and Patrik is immediately called to lead the investigation. Things get even worse when his team uncovers, buried beneath the victim, the skeletons of two campers whose disappearance had baffled police for decades. The three victims’ injuries seem to be the work of the same killer, but that is impossible: the main suspect in the original kidnappings committed suicide twenty-four years ago. When yet another young girl disappears and panic begins to spread, Patrik leads a desperate manhunt to track down a ruthless serial killer before he strikes again.

Inspirational Historical Romance's Rising Star On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can scarcely believe it when he's forced off the train by a retired outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Worried this unfortunate detour will ruin his chances of finally serving a congregation of his own, Crockett is determined to escape. But when he finally gets away, he's haunted by the memory of the young woman he left behind--a woman whose dreams now hinge on him. For months, Joanna Robbins prayed for a preacher. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. A man to help her discover answers to the questions that have been on her heart for so long. But just when it seems God has answered her prayers, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett to stay in her little backwoods community? And does the attraction between them have any chance of blossoming when Joanna's outlaw father is dead set against his daughter courting a preacher?

"The Preacher's Edge "puts to work the basic principles of oratory and persuasive speaking with creative pulpit techniques. It is written to be used by preachers for a revival and renewal of their preaching. From this book one can learn how to reach and hold the attention of this "channel surfing" generation of congregational members. This book is a celebration and affirmation of the role of preaching as the church moves into the 21st century. Reading it will modify the way in which the preacher delivers his message. And it will improve the attention span of those who hear the Good News in new and exciting ways. "In tune with the communication patterns of the "baby boomer and buster generations," Dr. Schmalenberger advocates preaching in an imagistic, earthy, and rhetorically musical style, and urges us to meet head-on the demand that the church respond to the difficult questions of our society. Both chapters and sample sermons present examples of the techniques he describes, and the book concludes with a clear, step-by-step program for improving one's preaching that could profitably be followed by preachers at any stage in their ministry." The Rev. Linda L. Clader, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Homiletics The Church Divinity School of the Pacific Berkeley, California "Years in demanding pulpits and classrooms have given Jerry Schmalenberger an "edge" that he shares with candor and power. If you are looking for suggestions and possibilities, even a ten-week strategy for improving your preaching, this book is for you." Richard L. Thulin, Th.D. Dean and Professor of the Art of Preaching Lutheran Theological Seminary Gettysburg, Pennsylvania This volume is a plea and a plan for preaching "close to the ground," using the very best speech techniques that have been discovered over the years. Schmalenberger strongly believes that paying attention to listeners' reactions is a keystone to effective preaching. Building on the extended narrative metaphor, he shows how local history can be a source of gospel parable and how it will more effectively lead to reaching the Baby Boomer and Baby Buster generations. Jerry Schmalenberger is president and professor of parish ministry at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California. He teaches introductory and advanced preaching courses in addition to practical theology. Professor Schmalenberger has been senior pastor in some of the largest Lutheran congregations in the United States and has appeared regularly on television and radio programs. He is a graduate of Wittenberg University and Hamma School of Theology in Springfield, Ohio. He has received Doctor of Ministry and Doctor of Divinity degrees from Wittenberg and Hamma. Schmalenberger has taught speech and communication at Wittenberg University and Urbana College in Ohio and was a parish pastor for 29 years.
