As a child, Kissen's family were killed by zealots of a fire god. Now, she makes a living killing gods, and enjoys it. That is until she finds a god she cannot kill: Skedi, a god of white lies, has somehow bound himself to a young noble, and they are both on the run from unknown assassins.

The program is a who's who of crime writing royalty:the debut writer (me!), the forensic science writer, the blockbuster writer, the legal thriller writer, the literary writer, and the psychological suspense writer.

Reviewing the case, Bosch sees something that doesn't add up, and a sheriff's department intent on bringing a quick search for justice in the killing of one of its own. The path to justice for both the lawyer and his investigator is fraught with danger from those who don't want the case reopened. And they will stop at nothing to keep the Haller-Bosch dream team from uncovering what the deputy's killing was really about.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Author: </span>Connelly, Michael, 1956-<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Published: </span>London : Orion, 2023.<br />405 pages ; 25 cm<br />Lincoln lawyer novel<br />A Lincoln lawyer novel ; 7<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Average rating: </span><span style="vertical-align: middle;"><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /></span> (1 review)<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">2 reserves</span><br /><br />12 copies <br /> Hawthorn Close / Anna Jacobs. https://aberdeenshire.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ?SETLVL=&BRN=3627030&CF=BIB&ISGLB=0 In the peaceful Wiltshire valley of Essington St Mary, architect Corin Drayton stumbles upon a ghastly new building development that is set to destroy the tranquil atmosphere and Edwardian features of this quiet neighbourhood. He is horrified. Only recently had Corin inherited, and spent his life savings, on renovating a home for himself and his newly pregnant wife, Lucia, in Larch Tree Lane. From the cottages and farms to the local shop, pub and old manor house, residents' lives are set to intertwine, relationships bloom and both romance and heartache lie ahead.

For young Americans a generation from now, climate change isn't controversial. It's just an overwhelming fact of life. And so are the great efforts to contain and mitigate it. Entire cities are being moved inland from the rising seas. Vast clean-energy projects are springing up everywhere. Disaster relief, the mitigation of floods and superstorms, has become a skill for which tens of millions of people are trained every year. The effort is global. It employs everyone who wants to work.

Their captor is unpredictable, and as wily as he is cruel: he foils every one of their desperate attempts to escape - and once caught they rarely survive their punishment. Five years later, Jenny is found dead in a public park, and the police are scrambling to find a lead among the scant evidence. But Detective Joona Linna realizes that this murder has an eerie connection to a death that was declared a suicide years before. And now when Mia, a seventeen-year-old orphan, goes missing, it becomes clear to Joona that they are dealing with a serial killer - and the murderous rampage has just begun.
