Whatever kind of knife it may be, the shimmer of the blade suggests it is sharp. The daydream finally allows reality to set in. Diane's heart skips two, maybe three, beats, before she washes her hands as was demanded." Mystery novelist Diane Dimbleby lives in one of the most charming and safest places in the country. So when she discovers a dead stranger while taking a stroll through Apple Mew's village green, she and the entire town are shocked. Who is he? How did he die? This isn't the first time Inspector Darrell Crothers has run into Diane at the scene of a crime. His instincts are telling him he's going to need her uncanny skills again, but he's still feeling a bit irritated by her amateur sleuthing. Diane and Inspector Crothers forge an unofficial partnership during the investigation after an autopsy reveals that the deceased was the victim of a heinous offense. When Diane uncovers an overlooked clue that leads the Inspector to an evil crime syndicate, neither of them can fathom just how far the killers will go to protect their empire. Now, Diane's life is at stake and the Inspector must race against the clock if he wants to save her from becoming the group's next victim. A curious writer. Double-crossing killers.

Must be Rufus, she thinks, until she notices him sound asleep on top of her bed. She goes back downstairs and looks around the living room but sees nothing out of the ordinary. She looks around the kitchen and does not find anything or anyone strange either. "Perhaps the cottage is catching up with me and my creaky bones," Diane chuckles to herself. Climbing the staircase to go back to her bedroom, Diane hears another creak, and it's louder this time... The English village, Apple Mews, is an idyllic community where bad things never happen. Though recently, long-time resident Diane Dimbleby found herself smack dab in the middle of a murder scene on the village green. The widow of a Scotland Yard police detective, retired teacher Diane spends her days writing crime-solving mysteries, and she used her expertise to help Inspector Darrell Crothers of the Shrewsbury Police solve the case. Standoffish at first, the inspector warmed to Diane's amazing intuition. Against his better judgment, her sweet nature won him over. Just as things are getting back to normal in the village, Diane's dear friend and neighbour, Carys Jones, is found dead by one of her caretakers, Richard. Diane is beyond traumatized. Seeing Carys' once lively body, now lying in a heap on the foyer floor, breaks her heart. To make matters worse, Richard's story of an accidental fall isn't adding up. When Darrell arrives on the scene, he isn't surprised to see his unofficial partner already there. Diane uncovers a clue that contains a cryptic message when she temporarily takes in Carys' dog, Rufus. Before Diane has a chance to tell the Inspector, she and Rufus are slowly stalked, and then chased, through the woods near her house. They barely manage to outrun their pursuer. She calls Darrell to share her discovery. The evidence leads the sleuthing pair--and Rufus--hours away to Carys' luxurious beach home on Bardsey Island. What they find shines a light on Carys' death, and points to something premeditated, something sinister. Things escalate when a stranger steps forward for the reading of the will. Diane and Darrell are forced to backtrack. Soon, Diane finds herself in the centre of a whodunit and she must once again use her ingenious wit to save her own life. A curious writer. A determined detective. Suspects crawling out of the woodwork. Murder in the Neighbourhood: A Diane Dimbleby Cozy Mystery is part of a series of books by author Penelope Sotheby.

He's never met him, but can only assume that this is Mike Davies lying here. From a distance, one might surmise that this man is sound asleep in his bed, save for one particular detail. And that particular detail is that it appears, at first glance, that his head has been gruesomely bashed in. With no sign of a snore or a breath, the inspector can only conclude that Mike Davies is not sound asleep, but dead." Diane Dimbleby's childhood friend and fellow author, Mike Davies, has invited her to spend the weekend with him on the Island of Lundy. Lundy is the perfect place for writers and artists to find inspiration; the natives keep things hopping, and the wildlife awakens the senses.

It's a safe place to write, much like Diane's village of Apple Mews. His novels are bestsellers, based loosely on personal experiences working as an intelligence spy. His latest submission is no different; it is inspired by a twenty-five-year-old case, and is soon to be released. But someone has begun threatening him. Warning him to make it disappear, or else. Mike shares his concerns with Diane and her instinct tells her he might be in danger. In the past, Diane has assisted Inspector Darrell Crothers of the Shrewsbury Police with his criminal cases, but this time she needs his help. Mike is in serious trouble and the inspector is someone she trusts with her life. When Diane and Darrell discover Mike's dead body aboard his yacht, a single clue leads them to Mike's publisher.

This is the first in a series of volumes concerned with research encompassed by the rather broad term "environment and behavior. " The goal of the series is to begin the process of integration of knowledge on environmental and behavioral topics so that researchers and professionals can have material from diverse sources accessible in a single publication. The field of environment and behavior is broad and interdiscipli nary, with researchers drawn from a variety of traditional disciplines such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and other social and behavioral sciences, and from the biological and life sciences of medicine, psychiatry, biology, and ethology. The interdis ciplinary quality of the field is also reflected in the extensive involve ment of environmental professionals from architecture, urban plan ning, landscape architecture, interior design, and other fields such as recreation and natural resources, to name just a few. At present, the field has a somewhat chaotic flavor, with research being carried out by a variety of scholars who publish in a multitude of outlets. Many researchers and practitioners are unaware of the state of knowledge regarding a specific topic because of the unavailability of integrated reference materials. There are only a handful of books dealing with environment and behavior, most of them unintegrated collections of readings, with only an occasional systematic analysis of some facet of the field.

A hilarious new collection of razor-sharp observations from the New York Times bestselling author of Brain Droppings. Few comics make the transition from stage to page as smoothly or successfully as George Carlin. Brain Droppings spent a total of 40 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and this new one is certain to tickle even more ribs (and rattle a few more cages) with its characteristically ironic take on life's annoying universal truths. In Napalm & Silly Putty, Carlin doesn't steer clear of the tough issues, preferring instead to look life boldly in the eye to pose the questions few dare to ask: How can it be a spy satellite if they announce on TV that it's a spy satellite? Why do they bother saying "raw sewage"? Do some people cook that stuff? In the expression "topsy-turvy," what exactly is meant by "turvy"? And he makes some startling observations, including: Most people with low self-esteem have earned it. Guys don't seem to be called "Lefty" anymore. Most people don't know what they're doing, and a lot of them are really good at it. Carlin also waxes wickedly philosophical on all sorts of subjects, including: KIDS--They're not all cute. In fact, if you look at them closely, some of them are rather unpleasant looking. And a lot of them don't smell too good either. DEATH ROW--If you're condemned to die they have to give you one last meal of your own request. What is that all about? A group of people plan to kill you, so they want you to eat something you like? Add to the mix "The Ten Most Embarrassing Songs of All Time," "The 20th Century Hostility Scoreboard," and "People I Can Do Without," and you have an irresistibly insouciant assortment of musings, questions, assertions, and assumptions guaranteed to please the millions of fans waiting for the next Carlin collection--and the millions more waiting to discover this comic genius.

The prestigious Lavender Bed and Breakfast in Chiddlinghurst, England has a rich, Tudor atmosphere, an enviously manicured lawn... And a deadly problem. A young, beautiful woman, Norah Travis, has been found murdered in one of the rooms with no witnesses and seemingly no motive. Detective Inspector Graham, a man with a singular drive, a penchant for tea, and silent demons of his own, has been brought in to ferret out the perpetrator. Joining Sergeant Harris at the sprawling estate, the duo set their caps to solving a mystery that leaves them frustrated. It's a "whodunit" of crafty design with suspects on all sides and nothing clear cut. The proprietors, Amelia and Cliff, have jokes to share and almost nothing to hide, while their long time guest, Tim, seems shiftier. There is an ex-husband, a housekeeper, an old man, and questions galore. But who could it be? It's a conundrum. The Case of the Screaming Beauty is a modern murder mystery with an old fashioned feel; a story for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, and CSI. Enjoy! Interview with the Creator of the series Q - So, what makes the Inspector David Graham series special? A - When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create something that played like a movie in the reader's mind. They are books with action, but also soul. They are ensemble pieces containing regular characters that are well drawn with strong personalities, humor and some tragedy. The Inspector David Graham books feel, to me, like good friends that never let me down. Every time we sit down to plan the books, I love to find out what the characters are going to get up to next! The Inspector David Graham books are a great mix of genres. They sit firmly in the cozy mystery category and are set on the beautiful island of Jersey in the English Channel between Britain and France. They feature a British detective who is part-Sherlock Holmes, part-Poirot, and, of course, uniquely himself. Q - In what order should I read the books? The Inspector David Graham cozy mysteries can be read, and enjoyed, in any order. The Case of the Screaming Beauty is a prequel to the other books in the series and, unlike the later books, is set on the mainland. All the books are complete mysteries. I've made sure not to include any spoilers for those who are new to the characters and any existing fans of Graham's adventures will still find plenty of fresh action and mystery as well as perhaps a few answers. All in all, there is something for everyone. The events in this prequel take place a few weeks before The Case of the Hidden Flame, the first book in the Inspector David Graham series of cozy mysteries. If you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest the following sequence: The Case of the Screaming Beauty (prequel) The Case of the Hidden Flame The Case of the Fallen Hero (coming soon) Q - Why should readers give these books a try? A - Because the Inspector Graham series is a gentle, but colorful romp through the wealthy but isolated English island, a place that is picturesque and peaceful but one filled with amoral and snobbish eccentrics with all kinds of vices. Graham is a complex character who is intriguing from the get-go and yet evolves throughout the series while his sidekicks are worthy, interesting characters in their own right. We feature many English countryside rituals, institutions and customs in these stories. Thanks for reading!
