Sheriff Royce Madison is dispatched to a home on the outskirts of Timber City. The call is to remove a vagrant. Once there, Royce is perplexed. Seated outside on her own porch is an elderly woman named Daisy Barnaby. She had been the owner of that home for her entire life - and it had belonged to her family for at least a century. But now, Royce discovers, it had been turned over to the assisted living home where the octogenarian was recently sent. Talking with the woman convinced Royce that it had all been done without Miss Barnaby's permission. And Daisy swore that she had not signed anything relinquishing her property. Nor was she senile, she insisted. The senior citizen did not seem impaired in any way to the sheriff. But there was more. Daisy disclosed that one of the patients residing in the Silver Wilderness Residence had been missing under dubious circumstances. Royce was not going to dismiss any crime in Timber County - real or imagined. Miss Daisy Barnaby was a friend of Royce's grandmother. And she had been a teacher for nearly her entire life. She had not only been Royce's father's teacher, but had also been Royce's grade school teacher. Daisy had always been a responsible citizen, and of sterling character. So was it all a mistake, an illusion? Or would the facts show that Miss Barnaby was indeed of sound mind? The sheriff had every intention of finding out.

For artist Danielle O'Hara, even though romance is nonexistent and her art career has nearly stagnated, she is reasonably content with her circumstances. Then, when she is nearly sixty years old, the greatest adventure of her life begins. Danielle leaves her Colorado home to attend her first major solo art exhibit in London. While roaming through a street market, Danielle catches sight of her first and only true love, Molly, who had left Colorado and their relationship thirty years earlier. Danielle never accepted Molly's explanation that the reason their relationship had dissolved was Danielle's compulsion to paint. Although the art world has provided Danielle only minimal recognition, an undying belief in herself has kept her moving forward. Her encounter with Molly forces Danielle to revisit the past and to confront an uncertain future. In addition to finding Molly again after three decades, she meets Bethany Cortland, a beguiling, confident woman, who is all that Danielle desires in a woman - everything, that is, except that she's not Molly. The London journey takes Danielle on a trip to the interior of her heart, a place where previously, only her art had been allowed. Now, against her will, she discovers that love and professional success have their own agendas and timetables.

Introducing Royce Madison, sheriff's department diehard deputy and dyke-about-town. When Royce's father, Sheriff Grady Madison, was killed, his murder went unsolved. Haunted by her father's death, Royce vowed that no other murder would go unsolved in Timber City, Colorado. In this first intriguing mystery, Royce explores the boundaries of sexuality, family loyalty, and town fear as she searches for the murderer of her lover's best friend. Possible suspects abound in the murder of the wealthy Trish Chandler-Sumner. Was it her no-good jealous husband Luther, who also happens to be the current sheriff's brother? Could it have been Ray, the gentle, guitar-playing young Native American implicated by one questionable witness? When Valeria, the object of Royce's obsession, reveals that she was sexually involved with the murdered woman, the tables tilt. But who knew the truth? What mask hides the real killer? Unsolved crimes means we haven't struggled hard enough for the truth. I hate being robbed of the truth. And if we accept the blank page and tag an innocent person, we're accepting a lie. When law enforcers do that, the law becomes neutralized. Our inaction can put us on the inside of a mask looking out. No better than the perpetrator. Royce Madison

In 1884, Thaniel Steepleton returns home to his London apartment to find a new watch on his pillow. But he has bigger things to worry about than generous burglars; he is a telegraphist at the Home Office, where he has just received a bomb threat. Six months later, the watch saves his life, warning him of a blast that destroys Scotland Yard. At last, he goes in search of its maker. Keita Mori, the artisan behind the mysterious watch, is a Japanese immigrant who remembers the future. Mori and Thaniel bond quickly, and as their friendship deepens, Mori uses his gift to tweak Thaniel's daily life in his favor. But then Grace Carrow, an Oxford physicist attracted to the telegraphist's refreshingly direct nature, unwittingly interferes. Soon, events spiral beyond Thaniel's control, and nothing is certain-not the present, and definitely not the future. The Watchmaker of Filigree Street is a sweeping, atmospheric narrative that takes the reader on an unexpected journey through Victorian London, Japan as its civil war crumbles long-standing traditions, and beyond. It breathes a new authenticity into the era of Sherlock Holmes, exploring historical moments in a new light-as well as the prevailing social and scientific views of the age-and plays speculatively with time and destiny, ushering in a new kind of magic.

On her sixth birthday Bethel's mother caught her imitating the slouching, slow walk of an old woman and rebuked her for generally showing off, speaking up in Church and in this case for copying people. Bethel said, "Oh! I'm not copying her. I'm trying to be her. I can be a lot of different people." Sinclair Lewis's novel about the theater woos the senses with the smell of shabby costumes, cramped dressing rooms, and what makes actors and actresses do what they do, for what is often very little money. Harry Sinclair Lewis was an American novelist, short-story writer, and playwright. In 1930, he became the first writer from the United States to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters." His works are known for their insightful and critical views of American society and capitalist values, as well as for their strong characterizations of modern working women.

Why are we surrounded by vampires in the twenty-first century? From the global phenomena of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight and Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse, through films such as Underworld and Blade, television series such as The Vampire Diaries and Being Human, to video games like Bloodrayne and Legacy of Kain, the reader, viewer and player has never had so many vampires to choose from. This collection considers the importance of the current flurry of vampires for our sense of human identity. Vampires have long been read as bodies through which our sense of ourselves has been reflected back to us. The essays offer readings of the modern vampire as a complex consideration of our modern human selves. Now that we no longer see the vampire as essentially evil, what does that say about us?

Anjali Bose’s prospects don’t look great. Born into a traditional lower-middle‑class family, she lives in a backwater town with only an arranged marriage on the horizon. But her ambition, charm, and fluency in language do not go unnoticed by her charismatic and influential expat teacher Peter Champion. And champion her he does, both to powerful people who can help her along the way and to Anjali herself, stirring in her a desire to take charge of her own destiny. So she sets off to Bangalore, India’s fastest‑growing metropolis, and soon falls in with an audacious and ambitious crowd of young people, who have learned how to sound American by watching shows like Seinfeld in order to get jobs in call centers, where they quickly out‑earn their parents. And it is in this high‑tech city where Anjali — suddenly free of the confines of class, caste, and gender — is able to confront her past and reinvent herself. Of course, the seductive pull of life in the New India does not come without a dark side . . .
