Shutter by Courtney Alameda Summary

Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat -- a girl who sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She's aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera's technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever. When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn't exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she's faced before . . . or die trying. Lock, stock, and lens, she's in for one hell of a week.

Cobalt Blue by Sachin Kundalkar Summary

Cobalt Blue is a tale of rapturous love and fierce heartbreak told with tenderness and unsparing clarity. Brother and sister Tanay and Anuja both fall in love with the same man, an artist lodging in their family home in Pune, in western India. He seems like the perfect tenant, ready with the rent and happy to listen to their mother’s musings on the imminent collapse of Indian culture. But he’s also a man of mystery. He has no last name. He has no family, no friends, no history, and no plans for the future. When he runs away with Anuja, he overturns the family’s lives. Translated from Marathi by acclaimed novelist and critic Jerry Pinto, Sachin Kundalkar’s elegantly wrought and exquisitely spare novel explores the disruption of a traditional family by a free-spirited stranger to examine a generation in transition. Intimate, moving, sensual, and wry in its portrait of young love, Cobalt Blue is a frank and lyrical exploration of gay life in India that recalls the work of Edmund White and Alan Hollinghurst—of people living in emotional isolation, attempting to find long-term intimacy in relationships that until recently were barely conceivable to them.

Mystic River by Dennis Lehane Summary

Now a major motion picture directed by Clint Eastwood, and starring an A-list cast including Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Laura Linney, and Marcia gay Harden—this New York Times bestselling novel from Dennis Lehane is a gripping, unnerving psychological thriller about the effects of a savage killing on three former friends in a tightly knit, blue-collar Boston neighborhood. When they were children, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus, and Dave Boyle were friends. But then a strange car pulled up to their street. One boy got into the car, two did not, and something terrible happened -- something that ended their friendship and changed all three boys forever. Twenty-five years later, Sean is a homicide detective. Jimmy is an ex-con who owns a corner store. And Dave is trying to hold his marriage together and keep his demons at bay -- demons that urge him to do terrible things. When Jimmy's daughter is found murdered, Sean is assigned to the case. His investigation brings him into conflict with Jimmy, who finds his old criminal impulses tempt him to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave, who came home the night Jimmy's daughter died covered in someone else's blood. A tense and unnerving psychological thriller, Mystic River is also an epic novel of love and loyalty, faith and family, in which people irrevocably marked by the past find themselves on a collision course with the darkest truths of their own hidden selves.

Suitcase City by Sterling Watson Summary

"The telling is masterful...Sit back and enjoy Watson's latest. It's better than bourbon on the rocks." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred review "Hypnotically beautiful novel...Paranoia has been defined as 'seeing too much pattern.' Author Watson can make us sweaty victims of that madness, partaking of it, suffering from it, and loving every minute." --Booklist, Starred review "Watson's magic is in pacing and taut prose...Suitcase City is an absorbing thriller, a vivid adventure in a bright, humid, perilous underworld...[A] tense, bloody thriller with a strong sense of place and a soft heart." --Shelf Awareness, Starred review "[A] noir gem...a deeply contemplative and darkly poetic prose style complements the well-crafted plot." --Publishers Weekly "A solid revenge tale...There is plenty of action to be had in this suspense tale, but it is the examination of the characters' motivations that really makes it shine. For fans of Lee Child and Nicci French." --Library Journal "Gripping....As [Watson] spins additional threads within the plot, deepening our interest in even minor characters, his grip remains steady....Peeling back the layers of Tampa society to reveal a crosshatching of race and class--the country club scenes are particularly fine--Watson stealthily heightens the suspense." --Barnes & Noble Review "Watson weaves...questions about race into a plot that takes one bloody turn after another, a crescendo of violence that ends with a day at sea that might be the most chilling of all." --Tampa Bay Times "[An] irresistible earworm of a novel...With its airtight atmosphere of impending, life-sinking doom, and taut language evoking palpable Gulf Coast Florida seediness, Suitcase City duly takes its place alongside the best works of former Floridian Pete Dexter, and the brilliant Tampa novels of Dennis Lehane." --Paste Magazine "Suitcase City [is] such a damn great book, a too-rare (and sometimes nearly too real) depiction of the wildly different worlds that exist side by side in the city by the bay....Events uncoil with an unflashy confidence and understated poetry, drawing in diverse characters whose deep inner lives give the wire-tight plot a thumping, nervous heart." --Creative Loafing Tampa "Suitcase City is a beautifully crafted labyrinth of plot and subplot." --Florida Book Review "The novels of Sterling Watson are to be treasured and passed on to the next generation." --Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River "Sterling Watson is an American treasure. If this taut literary crime novel doesn't center him on the map, we should change maps." --Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter "I am a huge fan of Sterling Watson's writing, and take it from me: Suitcase City is arguably his best novel to date. I began reading and did not look up again until the very last page, so taken was I by its twists and turns, its explorations of race and honor and the love a father has for his daughter. Turn off your phone, lock your door, and dive into Suitcase City." --Ann Hood, author of The Obituary Writer "As Watson reminds us, corruption and cruelty survive through their uncanny ability to take on new shapes." --Laura Lippman, author of I'd Know You Anywhere A man gets himself into a little bit of trouble, then a little bit more, then a lot. And then his whole world becomes a nightmare. How does he get himself out of this mess of his own creation? The answer involves the end of an extramarital affair, reconciliation with a daughter he has neglected, and a deadly encounter with a man who comes out of the past bearing bad news and the keys to a new life. Set in Tampa, Florida, in the late 1980s, Suitcase City captures the glitter of the high life and the steamy essence of low places in the Cigar City. As always, Sterling Watson tells his story in prose that sings.

Shutter Island (Patient 67) by Dennis Lehane Summary

Det är sommaren 1954. På Shutter Island ligger Ashcliffe Hospital, ett hårdbevakat sjukhus för mentalsjuka brottslingar. Nu har en av dem lyckats fly därifrån. Kriminalaren Teddy Daniels kallas dit för att tillsammans med sin kollega Chuck Aule ta hand om fallet. Men på Ashcliffe Hospital är ingenting vad det synes vara. Och detsamma gäller Teddy Daniels. Består hans uppdrag verkligen i att ta reda på vad som hänt den saknade Rachel Solando? Eller har han kommit dit för att undersöka ryktena om den radikala psykiatri som lär bedrivas på Ashcliffe Hospital och som sägs innefatta drogexperiment och hjärntvätt och ingå som en del i den kalla krigföringen mot Sovjetunionen? Eller har han helt andra, högst privata skäl att befinna sig på Shutter Island? Ju längre tiden går, desto mer hopar sig frågorna: Vad är det egentligen som pågår bakom sjukhusets murar? Hur kan någon överhuvudtaget avvika från denna strängt isolerade ö? Varför är den tomma fyren omgärdad av elektriskt stängsel och beväpnade vakter? Och vem är den patient 67 som den förrymde fången nämnt i ett kodat, kvarlämnat meddelande? Ju mer Teddy och Chuck försöker kartlägga de mysterier som omger Shutter Island, desto diffusare blir bilden. Ju närmare sanningen de kommer, desto mer undanglidande blir den – och desto mer övertygade blir de om att någon försöker driva dem över vansinnets brant. Översättare: Ulf Gyllenhak

In with the Devil by James Keene,Hillel Levin Summary

Featured on Dateline and CNN, the true story of a young man destined for greatness on the football field—until a few wrong turns led him to a ten-year prison sentence. He was offered an impossible mission: Coax a confession out of a fellow inmate, a serial killer, and walk free. Jimmy Keene grew up outside of Chicago. Although he was the son of a policeman and rubbed shoulders with the city's elite, he ended up on the wrong side of the law and was sentenced to ten years with no chance of parole. Just a few months into his sentence, Keene was approached by the prosecutor who put him behind bars. He had convicted a man named Larry Hall for abducting and killing a fifteen-year-old. Although Hall was suspected of killing nineteen other young women, there was a chance he could still be released on appeal. If Keene could get him to confess to two murders, there would be no doubt about Hall's guilt. In return, Keene would get an unconditional release from prison. But he could also get killed. A story that gained national notoriety, this is Keene's powerful tale of peril, violence, and redemption.
