Leonid McGill #4: All I Did Was Shoot My Man
Seven years ago, Zella Grisham came home to find her man in bed with her friend. The weekend before, $6.8 million had been stolen from a company across the street from where Zella worked. Zella didn't remember shooting her man, but she didn't deny it. The DA was inclined to call it temporary insanity - until the police found $80,000 from the heist hidden in her storage space. For reasons of his own, Leonid McGill is convinced of Zella's innocence. But as he begins his investigation, his life begins to unravel.

V.I. Warshawski #15: Breakdown
Carmilla, Queen of the Night, is a shape-shifting raven whose fictional exploits thrill girls all over the world. When tweens in the Carmilla Club hold a ritual in a cemetery, they stumble on a corpse: a man stabbed through the heart, vampire-slayer style. The club includes girls from some of Chicago's most powerful families. Is the killing linked to a hostile media campaign against Senate candidate Sophy Durango? Or wealthy Chaim Salanter's childhood in Nazi-occupied Lithuania? As V.I. Warshawski struggles for answers, she finds herself fighting enemies who are all too human.

Schweizer, Mark  
Liturgical Mystery #10: The Christmas Cantata
Signed by the author on the title page. Usually in St. Germaine, North Carolina, the three weeks before Christmas are marked by an increase in good feelings. Not this year. The whole town is crabby. Noylene's new personal Christian astrologer blames it on the convergence of Pluto and the third moon of Jupiter. Pete Moss thinks it might have something to do with increasing levels of positive ion bombardment from outer space. (Also included in Pete's theory are sunspots, a hole in the ozone layer, the federal deficit, CNN election coverage, armadillo migration, and the cancellation of two long-running soap operas.) When a long-lost cantata is found in the basement of the courthouse, a Christmas Eve performance is the order of the day. What happens next is anyone's guess.
