Murder in the Walls is the story of a murdered prostitute and a cop determined to find the killer. Flora Hobbs owned one of New Mexico's oldest Spanish-style houses, and shared it with a bevy of beautiful working girls. When one of them turned up dead -- in a locked room -- Detective Johnny Ortiz followed a scent that went straight beneath Santo Cristo's respectable facade into a world of hustlers, profiteers -- and at least one killer. Welcome to the first Johnny Ortiz mystery, which was set in motion by Richard Martin Stern (The Tower) in 1971. The New York Times Book Review said, "The author knows the country and his people. There is a feeling of desert and mesa, open air, spaciousness ... The prose is lean, the characters convincing, the plotting impeccable."

A woman murdered. A city torn apart. A crime that gripped a nation. And that’s just the beginning of the story. Charles Stuart claimed it was a black man who carjacked him, shooting both himself and his wife, ending both her life and the life of their unborn child. The accusation and subsequent manhunt enflamed the racial tensions of Boston, leading to the arrest of an innocent man. It was then discovered that Stuart had killed his wife and shot himself to cover up the crime, seeking a big insurance payout. When his crimes were exposed, Stuart jumped off a bridge to his death. Ken Englade explored the story with panoramic vision and a stunning eye for detail. Looking at the crime itself and the police response, Englade shows how Stuart’s crime unraveled, how the truth came out, and what the media’s response can tell us about the biases through which we view the worst of crimes.

Fans ofMurder at the MLA, also by D. J. H. Jones, will welcome this second adventure of Nancy Cook, a Chaucer scholar with a sharp mind and a taste for Bakelite jewelry. When Nancy arrives in Santa Fe, she's looking for a getaway from her job at Yale--a place to revise her book before an autumn rendezvous with Chicago detective Boaz Dixon. The room she sublets is decorated in black and red, bedecked with herbs and crystals. She is awakened by drumming. The quiet retreat she was hoping for is a crowded household of New Agers dabbling in self-help philosophies, "crystal culture," astrology, and channeling. Intrigued by the preoccupations of her companions if disgusted by their diets and hygiene, Nancy finds that her sympathy for Nicole, a software whiz with a weight problem, draws her into the increasingly mystifying affairs of the household. The appeal of New Agism--the sorts of people drawn to it and why--becomes a mystery she sets out to solve. When a fugitive cyberthief in the household attempts murder under cover of a peyote ceremony, a surprising arrival alters both the police investigation and Nancy's future--academic and romantic. With acute observation and acidic wit, Jones provides a hilarious analysis of New Age subculture and its pretensions.

Seattle printing collective owner Pam Nilsen is on the case when a member of the group turns up dead before a controversial merger Pam Nilsen and her twin sister, Penny, inherited Best Printing four years ago when their parents died in a car crash. Unwilling to sell their family legacy, the sisters turned it into a collective run by a cadre of activists whose arguments over the business can be just as impassioned as their support for progressive causes. But internal divisions at the collective pale in comparison to those between Seattle typesetters B. Violet and Moby Dick—once a single company that has since broken apart into an all-female (and lesbian-run) company, and an all-male (and quickly bankrupt) operation. Shortly after Best Printing and B. Violet begin discussing a merger, the offices of the typesetter are ransacked, one of their members nowhere to be found. Then an employee of Best Printing is found murdered. It appears as if someone will stop at nothing—not even murder—to prevent the merger. And it’s up to Pam to get to the bottom of this deadly turn of events before the killer strikes again. Murder in the Collective is the first book in the Pam Nilsen Mystery trilogy, which continues with Sisters of the Road and The Dog Collar Murders.
