From the author of the bestselling A Reliable Wife comes a dramatic, passionate tale of a glamorous Southern debutante who marries for money and ultimately suffers for love—a southern gothic as written by Dominick Dunne. It begins with a house and ends in ashes . . . Diana Cooke was "born with the century" and came of age just after World War I. The daughter of Virginia gentry, she knew early that her parents had only one asset, besides her famous beauty: their stately house, Saratoga, the largest in the commonwealth, which has hosted the crème of society and Hollywood royalty. Though they are land-rich, the Cookes do not have the means to sustain the estate. Without a wealthy husband, Diana will lose the mansion that has been the heart and soul of her family for five generations. The mysterious Captain Copperton is an outsider with no bloodline but plenty of cash. Seeing the ravishing nineteen-year-old Diana for the first time, he’s determined to have her. Diana knows that marrying him would make the Cookes solvent and ensure that Saratoga will always be theirs. Yet Copperton is cruel as well as vulgar; while she admires his money, she cannot abide him. Carrying the weight of Saratoga and generations of Cookes on her shoulders, she ultimately succumbs to duty, sacrificing everything, including love. Luckily for Diana, fate intervenes. Her union with Copperton is brief and gives her a son she adores. But when her handsome, charming Ashton, now grown, returns to Saratoga with his college roommate, the real scandal and tragedy begins. Reveling in the secrets, mores, and society of twentieth-century genteel Southern life, The Dying of the Light is a romance, a melodrama, and a cautionary tale told with the grandeur and sweep of an epic Hollywood classic.

Midwinter, a freezing night in Leith, near Edinburgh's red light district. A policewoman's flashlight stabs the darkness in a snow-covered cemetery. The circle of light stops on a colourless, dead face. So begins the hunt for a serial murderer of prostitutes in Gillian Galbraith's third Alice Rice mystery, "The Dying of the Light". Partly inspired by the real-life killings of prostitutes in Ipswich, this novel explores a hidden world where sex is bartered for money and drugs. Off-duty, Alice's home life continues its uneven course. Her romance with the artist Ian Melville offers the prospect of happiness, but is plagued by insecurity. Her demented but determined neighbour, Miss Spinnell, offers a new challenge to Alice's patience at every meeting. This atmospheric thriller builds on the success of the first two Alice Rice mysteries, "Blood in the Water" and "Where the Shadow Falls", and it is Gillian Galbraith's most accomplished novel yet.

As a community volunteer for several years, I have come to know many elderly people, to listen to the stories of their lives, and to witness their needs and complaints. Some are no longer with us, of course, but others soldier on, enduring lifes challenges, suffering ungrateful children, and combating an indifferent society. One important discovery I have made is that it is elemental to listen. The listening is the best and most affirmative part of my service to the elderly. Hardly anyone actually cares what they say or what they think. It is necessary that their voices be heard. What I have tried to do in The Dying of the Light is to restore their voices.

Yet all is not lost, for in the farthest and coldest corner of the globe, marooned in an icy prison, a scientist has made a stunning breakthrough. A desparate rescue mission is launched to bring back the one person who can save them all, but the trip is long and dangerous, and its fate is uncertain.

Enjoy the triumphant finale of the series that's been called the "best since World War Z! He awoke and, for the first time in almost twenty-five years, remembered who he was... It’s been 25 years since the zombie prion wiped out 99.998% of the human race, leaving a handful of souls cowering in concrete-and-steel bunkers beneath the surface of the United States. The walkers won, for a time, scouring the Earth clean of more than seven billion humans. Now, it’s time for those few to take back their home. Nothing is ever easy for the survivors, though, and they find that their biggest enemy is not the few remaining walkers, but instead, as always, each other. The terror that has haunted them all for nearly 30 years now has a face, and is threatening to unleash the worst nightmare yet on the few who remain. A character-driven series similar to The Walking Dead on AMC, the first book, The Dying of the Light: End was a Top 5 Finalist in Kindle Book Review's “Best Indie Books of 2012” competition. The sequel, Interval, was a Top 5 Finalist in 2013. A fourth companion volume, The Walker Chronicles: Tales from The Dying of the Light, collects short stories from the world of the series and is being updated with new stories as they're released.
