    These are murder mysteries, which take place during the reign of Queen Hatshepsut, of ancient Egypt. The first few stories take place in the Sudan, which was ruled by Egypt, and the later stories take place in Egypt (A Path of Shadows takes place on a trek to the Red Sea). Lieutenant Bak, of the Medjay police, investigates murders.






    A Face Turned Backward (1999)
    (The second book in the Lieutenant Bak series)
    A novel by Lauren Haney



    Assigned to patrol the Nile's river traffic for stolen elephant tusks, Lieutenant Bak, police commander in ancient Egypt, becomes the next potential victim of a sinister plot spawned by unbridled greed and a willingness to kill.





    A Curse of Silence (2000)
    (The fourth book in the Lieutenant Bak series)
    A novel by Lauren Haney



    A vile rumor sweeps across the desert like a swiftly gathering sandstorm: Queen Hatshepsut plans to disband much of her frontier army and transform its fortresses into storehouses. The arrival of Amonked--the Queen's cousin and Storekeeper of Amon--at the city of Buhen convinces an uneasy Lieutenant Bak of the Medjay police that the whisperings that have alarmed the populace are true. Then, a day after Amonked inspects the local garrison and departs, a body is found stabbed in the house where he and his party rested. The slain man was a local prince, beloved by his people, so Bak travels upriver to join the caravan and investigate. Though nothing tangible connects Amonked and his people to the heinous act, Bak's inquiry soon sheds a disturbing light on an inexplicable crime. For the clues suggest that twisted honor and vengeance lie at its root…and a shocking secret, protected by murder and silence, that could itself silence the truth--and Bak--for eternity.





    A Place of Darkness (2001)
    (The fifth book in the Lieutenant Bak series)
    A novel by Lauren Haney



    The Spirit Is Hungry


    Some transgressions may never be forgiven -- as Lieutenant Bak remains out of favor with the powers of Kemet. While in transit from his exile in Buhen to a new posting, the disgraced policeman stops at the capital in hopes of investigating a troubling case of relics plundered from ancient tombs and smuggled through the southern frontier. Instead, he is sent to the partially built memorial temple of the divine Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut, where a series of fatal accidents and whispers of a malign spirit are plaguing the construction effort. Can the thefts and these deaths somehow be connected? The clues are leading the ever-loyal investigator to a magnificent tomb. But this realm of the dead threatens to become Bak's own place of burial when he must confront the source of the spectral malevolence.





    A Cruel Deceit (2002)
    (The sixth book in the Lieutenant Bak series)
    A novel by Lauren Haney



    To Honor The Gods Amid Treachery and Death

    From far and wide, they have come to the capital city of Waset for the opulent Feast of Opet -- sovereigns and supplicants, the pious and proud, gathering for the eleven-day-long revelries. While greeting friends and fellow Medjay officers at the bustling harbor, Lieutenant Bak is distracted by foul murder, the discovery of the body of a Hittite horse trader, his throat savagely cut. Bak has no authority to investigate what could be a simple matter of Hittite politics -- until similar murders occur within the sacred precinct of the Lord Amon. Though this city is not his own, Bak eagerly agrees to aid in the investigation. But his determined search for connections embroils him in a terrifying conspiracy that points to the court of Queen Hatshepsut herself. Untold others may be joining the ranks of the dead before the villain is done -- with Lieutenant Bak numbered among them.





    Flesh of the God (2003)
    (The seventh book in the Lieutenant Bak series)
    A novel by Lauren Haney



    A young, untested policeman confronts deceit, treachery, and deadly peril in an ancient and magnificent world. Author Lauren Haney dazzles with a spellbinding "prequel" -- the first investigation of the brilliant Egyptian, Lieutenant Bak.

    A proud officer in the service of Queen Hatshepsut, it was Lieutenant Bak's great misfortune to lead his charioteers in a raid of a house of pleasure frequented by Egyptians of very high station. Reassigned for his transgressions, Bak is exiled to Buhen -- a fortified city in the most desolate part of the Nile valley. Barely has he set foot in this nest of vipers when he discovers Nakht, Buhen's capable commandant, slain with a dagger in his breast -- and Nakht's very beautiful, young wife covered with fresh blood. Bak's carefully honed instinct makes him hesitate to condemn the frightened widow. Perhaps the man's death was divine retribution for recent offenses directed toward the gods. Finding the truth in this terrible place will be as difficult as finding water in the heartless desert that surrounds it -- while more death may be far too easy to come by.





    A Path of Shadows (2003)
    (The eighth book in the Lieutenant Bak series)
    A novel by Lauren Haney




    The Gods blessed Lieutenant Bak, head of the Medjay police, with a rare brilliance -- which is why he is the one to whom his commander turns in a time of need. The explorer Minnakht has vanished into the vast and merciless Egyptian desert -- or perhaps has strayed perilously close to Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut’s well-guarded turquoise mines -- and before Bak sails north on a new assignment he is to seek out the missing man. But evil is traveling with him and his Medjays in the caravan they accompany eastward. Someone -- or something -- is responsible for the strange rash of deaths that is rapidly thinning the numbers of their fellow travelers. A straightforward search for a missing adventurer becomes a twisted knot of treachery and blood -- one that threatens to strangle the life from Bak and his men and leave them buried for all eternity beneath the blistering sands.

    G.M. is the Agatha Award-winning author of 2008's DEATH OF A COZY WRITER. Kirkus Reviews named it one of the best books of the year, and it won a Silver Medal IPPY in the mystery/suspense category. It was also nominated for Anthony, David, Left Coast Crime, and Macavity awards.






    Death of a Cozy Writer (2008)
    (The first book in the St. Just Mystery series)
    A novel by G M Malliet



    From deep in the heart of his eighteenth century English manor, millionaire Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk writes mystery novels and torments his four spoiled children with threats of disinheritance. Tiring of this device, the portly patriarch decides to weave a malicious twist into his well-worn plot. Gathering them all together for a family dinner, he announces his latest blow - a secret elopement with the beautiful Violet... who was once suspected of murdering her husband.

    Within hours, eldest son and appointed heir Ruthven is found cleaved to death by a medieval mace. Since Ruthven is generally hated, no one seems too surprised or upset - least of all his cold-blooded wife Lillian. When Detective Chief Inspector St. Just is brought in to investigate, he meets with a deadly calm that goes beyond the usual English reserve. And soon Sir Adrian himself is found slumped over his writing desk - an ornate knife thrust into his heart. Trapped amid leering gargoyles and concrete walls, every member of the family is a likely suspect. Using a little Cornish brusqueness and brawn, can St. Just find the killer before the next-in-line to the family fortune ends up dead?





    Death and the Lit Chick (2009)
    (The second book in the St. Just Mystery series)
    A novel by G M Malliet



    Everyone has gathered at Dalmorton Castle in Scotland for a crime writers' conference, including Kimberlee Kalder, the publishing industry's "It" girl. Totally hot and couture-clad, this bestselling chick-lit mystery writer has captured the envious - and resentful - attentions of all. Rumor has it that prima donna Kimberlee is shopping around for a new agent (and the best deal for her latest book), and there are some who would stop at nothing to steal her as a client.

    Then Kimberlee turns up dead at the bottom of the castle's bottle dungeon. With the help of his lovely sidekick, Portia, Detective Chief Inspector St. Just is hot on the trail of the true killer in a castle full of cagey mystery connoisseurs who live and breathe malicious murder and artful alibis . . .





    Death At the Alma Mater (2010)
    (The third book in the St. Just Mystery series)
    A novel by G M Malliet



    St. Michaels College is prestigious, stately - and in frightful disrepair. To replenish the school's dwindling coffers, the College Master plans a fundraising weekend for wealthy alums. But all goes awry when the wealthy and gorgeous Lexy Durant is found viciously strangled to death.

    Drama queen Lexy inspired jealousy, envy, and spite in everyone. As Chief Inspector St. Just weighs clashing egos and likely suspects - Lexy's debt-ridden Latino lover, her ex-husband who jilted her, a hot-tempered Texan once rejected by the victim - he discovers unsavory secrets . . . and a shocking twist.

    Alexander McCall Smith - A Few More Scarce Books

    The 2 1/2 Pillars of Wisdom


    Alexander McCall Smith, best-selling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, has turned his hand to humour. The delightful result is a creation of comic genius. For in the unnaturally tall form of Professor Doctor Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, we are invited to meet a memorable character whose sublime insouciance is a blend of the cultivated pomposity of Frasier Crane and of Inspecteur Clouseau's hapless gaucherie. Von Igelfeld inhabits the rarefied world of the Institute of Romance Philology at Regensburg, a world he shares with his equally tall and equally ridiculous colleagues, Professors Florianus Prinzel and Detlev Amadeus Unterholzer. Their unlikely adventures are described in three deliciously funny instalments: Portuguese Irregular Verbs, The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs and At the Villa of Reduced Circumstances.

    Heavenly Date and Other Flirtations


    Smith departs from his successful mystery series (The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency , et al.) with a collection of offbeat stories about dating and love. The author's fondness for globetrotting settings is once again in evidence, with the tales taking place in various European countries, Australia, and, of course, southern Africa (the mysteries are set in Botswana). Some of the stories are curiously peculiar (in "Nice Little Date," a rock star, intending to seduce a teenage girl, finds instead she's a boy); some are darkly funny (in "Far North," a date goes so awry that the guy's death is a relief, even it means the woman goes to jail); but all of them remind us of why dating is such a precarious endeavor. Smith's characters possess the quirkiness of Hiaasen creations; just imagine them on an episode of Blind Date . For love stories without the sap, you can't go wrong here.

    The Girl Who Married a Lion and Other Tales from Africa


    Gathered here is a beguiling selection of folktales from Zimbabwe and Botswana as retold by the best-selling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. This treasury contains most of the stories previously collected in Children of Wax and seven new tales from the Setswana-speaking people of Botswana.
    A girl discovers that her young husband might actually be a lion in disguise, but not before they have two sons who might actually be cubs . . . When a child made of wax follows his curiosity outside into the heat of daylight and melts, his siblings shape him into a bird with feathers made of leaves that enable him to fly into the light . . . Talking hyenas, milk-giving birds, clever cannibals who nonetheless get their comeuppance, and mysterious forces that reside in the landscape—these wonderful fables bring us the wealth, the variety, and the particular magic of traditional African lore.

    The Chocolate Money Mystery


    Max and Maddy Twist have a flair for solving crimes. You might even say it's in their blood. That's because their parents once ran a thriving detective agency - until their nemesis, the notorious Professor Claude Sardine, shut them down.
    But now Max and Maddy are ready to pick up where their parents left off. In Max & Maddy and the Chocolate Money Mystery, a Swiss businessman asks for their help in catching a bank robber. But little do the brother-and-sister detectives expect to find themselves hot on the trail of a gang of . . . St. Bernard dogs. Who can be the dastardly mind behind this evil and cunning plot? The daring duo don their disguises and fly to Switzerland to find out!

    The Pacific by Hugh Ambrose, mobi


    The Pacific presents the Pacific War, from America’s first battle with the Japanese to the final shot. It blends eyewitness accounts into a larger perspective on the course of the war. However, this larger perspective is not solely provided by the historian, but also by the veterans. Put another way, instead of layering some oral histories onto a historical framework, I follow the lives of five veterans who, between them, experienced most of the key moments of the war. By walking with these men through their respective wars, the reader comes to see The Pacificas a whole.

    State of the Onion (2008)
    (The first book in the White House Chef Mystery series)
    A novel by Julie Hyzy



    Introducing White House Assistant Chef Olivia Paras, who is rising-and sleuthing-to the top.

    Includes recipes for a complete presidential menu! Never let them see you sweat-that's White House Assistant Chef Olivia Paras's motto, which is pretty hard to honor in the most important kitchen in the world. She's hell-bent on earning her dream job, Executive Chef. There's just one thing: her nemesis is vying for it, too. Well, that and the fact that an elusive assassin wants to see her fry.





    Hail to the Chef (2008)
    (The second book in the White House Chef Mystery series)
    A novel by Julie Hyzy



    White House executive chef Ollie Paras has to put her own interests on the back burner when a kindly electrician is electrocuted to death, and the First Lady's nephew dies in an apparent suicide less than 24 hours after cleaning shrimp with Ollie. Ollie suspects something fishy is going on. She'll have to watch her back - and find a killer unlikely to be pardoned.





    Eggsecutive Orders (2010)
    (The third book in the White House Chef Mystery series)
    A novel by Julie Hyzy



    "Hyzy's research into the backstage kitchen secrets of the White House gives this series a special savor that will make you hungry for more."
    Susan Wittig Albert


    Chef Olivia Paras has too many eggs in one basket-and is feeling like a basket-case...

    When NSA big shot Carl Minkus dies right after eating the dinner Olivia Paras's staff had prepared, all forks point to them. Now the Secret Service is picking apart the kitchen-and scrutinizing the staff's every move. The timing couldn't be worse with the White House Lawn Easter Egg Roll to prep for without access to a kitchen. Olivia must find the real culprit-before she cracks under pressure.






    Buffalo West Wing (2011)
    (The fourth book in the White House Chef Mystery series)
    A novel by Julie Hyzy




    With a new First Family, White House executive chef Olivia Paras can't afford to make any mistakes. But when a box of take-out chicken mysteriously shows up for the First Kids, she soon finds herself in a "no-wing" situation. After Olivia refuses to serve the chicken, the First Lady gives her the cold shoulder. But when it turns out to be poisoned poultry, Olivia realizes the kids are true targets.

    Don't Look Twice (2009)
    (The second book in the Ty Hauck series)
    A novel by Andrew Gross



    In this dramatic new novel following the bestselling The Dark Tide, a drive-by shooting rocks the posh suburb of Greenwich, Connecticut, and an innocent bystander is left dead.

    Detective Ty Hauck plunges into what seems like a vicious case of retribution and follows the trail to a sinister gambling scheme at an upstate casino. Until Annie Fletcher, a young restaurateur in the midst of rebuilding her life, witnesses something she shouldn't have - and immediately runs to him with what she knows. Suddenly, Hauck is pulled into a rising storm far greater than it first appeared - a storm wide enough to encompass corruption inside Greenwich's circle of wealthy and powerful citizens. And punishing enough to consume Hauck's own family, and tear brothers apart forever . . . if it doesn't kill them first.

    Don't Look Twice is a gripping story of profiteering on an international scale and an emotionally resonant domestic thriller from one of the hottest new talents in suspense fiction.
