Southern Debuts with Spirit and Stars

Southern Debuts with Spirit and Stars

 

Reviewers and librarians have been giving a lot of pre-pub love to RANCHERO, a gem of a debut that'll have you bombing around the Missippi Delta. Now we're starting to see some love for another action-packed, southern-style debut, THE TERRITORY by Tricia Fields.

When a remote corner of Western Texas becomes a hot spot for Mexican drug runners, many of the locals would rather take the law into their own hands than get help from police chief Josie Gray. 

After arresting one of the cartel's hit men and killing another, Josie finds her life at risk for a job that many people would rather see her quit. And when the town's self-appointed protector of the Second Amendment is murdered, it's clear that she doesn't have to pick sides in this war. She's battling them both. 

Set in a desert landscape as beautiful as it is dangerous, THE TERRITORY captures the current border issues from the eyes of a tough, compelling heroine and richly evokes the American Southwest. 

"Fields’s rich plotting, nonstop action, and deft characterizations show the personal side of the larger issue of drug cartels on both sides of the border." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Louise Penny Wins the 2010 Agatha Award for Best Novel!

Louise Penny Wins the 2010 Agatha Award for Best Novel!

BURY YOUR DEAD has claimed the 2010 Agatha Award for Best Novel and turned the incredibly talented Louise Penny into a four-time Agatha Award-winner! The Agatha Awards honor the traditional mystery; that is to say, books best typified by the works of Agatha Christie. Malice Domestic loosely defines "traditional" as a mystery without explicit sex, excessive gore, or gratuitous violence.

More about BURY YOUR DEAD:

It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society— where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?

BURY YOUR DEAD is the sixth Chief Inspector Gamache Novel, the first of which (STILL LIFE) took home the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards. BURY YOUR DEAD is also available in audio and comes with a downloadable reading group guide.
