|New from Linda Greenlaw...
Summer just isn't complete without a trip to the beach, a nice cold drink, and a fantastic mystery to keep your mind firmly out of the real world. This summer, you can spend your long, hot days with Jane Bunker, the heroine in Linda Greenlaw's new mysteries.
This new mystery series features everything readers want: a great setting, wonderful characters, an authentic and original detective -- and a story that will keep them on the edge of their seats.
Jane Bunker gave up her job as a Miami detective and moved to a town in Maine, where she was sure her life would be quiet and peaceful. After all, she was trying to get away from all the murder and mayhem of the big city. But she's quickly learning that her small town is full of big secrets -- and plenty of crime. You can read about her in SLIPKNOT, Greenlaw's first mystery, now in paperback, and in FISHERMAN'S BEND, now available in hardcover.
As she proved in THE HUNGRY OCEAN, no one knows the sea like Linda Greenlaw. And as she proved in THE LOBSTER CHRONICLES, no one has a better way with the telling details of Maine village life. Now with the Jane Bunker series, she's got that same signature style and talent for weaving together a great story into just the kind of beach reads any mystery-lover will want to devour.
|Now in Hardcover: FISHERMAN'S BEND
When former Miami homicide detective Jane Bunker left her big city life for Green Haven, Maine, she thought she was also leaving behind the pollution, noise, and dead bodies.
Well -- as any New Englander will tell you -- two out of three ain't bad.
After solving a murder and surviving a couple of attempts on her life (recounted in the bestselling mystery SLIPKNOT), Jane Bunker believes she's finally earned a respite from murder and intrigue. But if she thinks it's time for her to soak up the peace and quiet she's been seeking, she should think again.
On her way back from a routine investigation into some smashed equipment, Jane takes a moment to appreciate the beauty of a Maine autumn -- there's the sublime rainbow foliage of the highlands, the serene reflections of the setting sun on the bay's gentle waves, the elegant silhouette of a lobster boat on the bay. But her calm lasts only as long as it takes for Jane to make the chilling discovery that the vessel is in serious trouble with nobody aboard -- and that its owner has vanished without a trace.
And that's the least of the mysteries. A young mariner dead of a heroin overdose; the real agenda of a charismatic Indian leader; a missing bait iron and a corpse painted red -- nothing is what it seems.
FISHERMAN'S BEND brings us Greenlaw's pitch-perfect ear for all things maritime. From the eccentric denizens of little Green Haven -- Audrey, the punk rock waitress, the delightful Vickersons with their all-mussel cookbook -- to the dark undercurrents that run beneath this seemingly idyllic coastal village, Greenlaw's flair for combining humor and Down East flavor with roller-coaster suspense makes this a mystery that will grab you hook, line, and sinker.

|Now in Paperback: SLIPKNOT
The exciting debut of a snappy, spirited, and irresistible mystery series from beloved and bestselling author Linda Greenlaw.
In her bestselling nonfiction book ALL FISHERMEN ARE LIARS, Linda Greenlaw confessed a desire to write fiction -- and readers responded with an enthusiastic "Please do!" At last, she satisfies their hunger with this sharp-witted, compulsively readable mystery, the first in a series featuring marine investigator Jane Bunker.
When Jane moves back to the sleepy Maine fishing community where she was born, it's to escape the seamy crime scenes and unsavory characters that crossed her path in Miami. Surely whatever crimes are committed in touristy, idyllic Green Haven won't involve anything as nasty as what she saw in Florida. It's a bit of a shock, then, when Nick Dow, the town drunk, turns up dead, and it's not the simple accident that everyone assumes it to be. Jane soon discovers that Dow wasn't even a drunk -- it was all an act. But why? And what does it have to do with a heated town hall meeting about fishing rights and paternity suits? The more Jane digs, the more confused she gets. Only two things are certain: Nothing is what it seems; and the whole town is in each other's business. But it's not until Jane impulsively hops on a boat with the killer -- a boat that suddenly heads out to sea -- that things become downright dangerous . . .
