A SIMPLE CHALLENGE… On the fast track to success, beautiful Caroline Carson had everything within reach—except love. Until the day her powerful boss presented her with a simple challenge. If Caroline could sweet-talk Reverend John Barrows into selling his church to the company, she'd have her promotion. But seeing John's charismatic faith and the community he'd built among his parishioners put Caroline's agenda to shame. And his genuine caring for her warmed Caroline right down to her soul. Still, a personal tragedy had cost Caroline the faith she'd known as a child. Could John's love now make Caroline see what mattered most in life?
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.

Ancient tradition suggests that this world-weary lament is the work of Solomon in old age. Casting its eye over the transient nature of life, the book questions the striving for wisdom and the truth, choosing instead to espouse the value of living for the moment. The text is introduced by Doris Lessing.
Pancho Villa is in exile, improbably hiding out in a Southwestern U.S. town, recuperating from a leg wound he received during his recent incursion into American territory at Columbus, New Mexico -- just down the road a bit. During this period he has gone from a highly regarded revolutionary general to a desperado, hunted down by both the U.S. and Mexico. He’s not worried. In the saloon, he meets an American circuit rider, a preacher on horseback, who also happens to be running from lawmen. Sheriff ’s deputies want to question the parttime preacher in the killing of a rancher in Lincoln County. These two unlikely characters start drinking and spinning their stories to each other. They strike up a friendship that is to last throught the Mexican Revolution -- until they are separately assassinated down Mejico way.
