  • Jack Wade, a claims adjuster for California Fire and Life Mutual Insurance Company, is one of the best arson investigators around. He's a man who knows fire, who can read the traces it leaves behind like a roadmap. When he's called in to examine an unusual claim, the tracks of the fire tell him that something's wrong. So wrong that he violates his own cardinal rule--"You don't get personal, you don't get emotional. Whatever you do, you don't get involved"--and plunges into the case.
    Real estate mogul Nicky Vale's house is one of the most valuable properties on this stretch of the Southern California gold coast--large, luxurious, crammed with antiques, set on a nice piece of land with a perfect ocean view. After a disastrous blaze tears through a wing of the house, it's only normal that Vale would file an insurance claim. But a $3 million claim is rarely normal, especially not when it's filed within hours of the horrific death of the owner's young and beautiful wife. The County Sheriff's Department investigator, Brian "Accidentally" Bentley, has declared the fire, well, accidental--caused by Mrs. Vale's passing out in bed with a bottle of vodka and a lit cigarette--although a careful look at the evidence points to something more sinister.
    When Jack begins his investigation, he draws on his skill, experience and sheer stubbornness to uncover the truth of what's going on, but each step leads him further into a situation that's becoming increasingly dangerous. Son arson is the least of Jack's worries, as the case grows to involve the Russian mob, Vietnamese gangs, real estate scams, counterfeiting and corporate corruption. In addition, Jack's forced to confront his own ghosts, including a fatal professional error, and to cope with the sudden reentry into his life of the best thing that ever happened to him: Letitia del Rio, a Sheriff's deputy whose bombshell looks are exceeded only by her smarts and guts.
    As the investigation spins out of control, Jack finds himself pulled so far in that he might not make it out. His outrageous behavior and defiant integrity, usually about as helpful to him as third-degree burns, may now be the only things that will keep the investigation--and Jack himself--from being snuffed out.

  • A new translation of this moving novel about the destructive power of greed, book twenty in the new Penguin Maigret series.

    Poor Cécile! And yet she was still young. Maigret had seen her papers: barely twenty-eight years old. But it would be difficult to look more like an old maid, to move less gracefully, in spite of the care she took to be friendly and pleasant. Those black dresses that she must make for herself from bad paper patterns, that ridiculous green hat!

    In the dreary suburbs of Paris, the merciless greed of a seemingly respectable woman is unearthed by her long suffering niece, and Maigret discovers the far-reaching consequences of their actions.

    Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret and the Spinster.

  • From the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed novel The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping, true-to-life, ripped-from-the-headlines epic story of power, corruption, revenge, and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars.
    Its 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adán Barrera, the head of El Federación, the worlds most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Kellers partner. Finally putting Barrera away cost Keller dearly--the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead.
    Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. His obsession with justice--or is it revenge?--becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains, and deserts of Mexico to Washingtons corridors of power to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona.
    Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexicos drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera--and himself--that he always knew must happen.
    The Cartel is a story of revenge, honor, and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul. It is the story of the war on drugs and the men--and women--who wage it.

  • The fifth book in the new Penguin Maigret series: Georges Simenon's gripping tale of small town suspicion and revenge, in Linda Asher's timeless translation.
    There was an exaggerated humility about her. Her cowed eyes, her way of gliding noiselessly about without bumping into things, of quivering nervously at the slight­est word, were the very image of a scullery maid accustomed to hardship. And yet he sensed, beneath that image, glints of pride held firmly in check. She was anaemic. Her flat chest was not formed to rouse desire. Nevertheless, she was strangely appealing, perhaps because she seemed troubled, despondent, sickly.In the windswept seaside town of Concarneau, a local wine merchant is shot. In fact, someone is out to kill all the influential men and the entire town is soon sent into a state of panic. For Maigret, the answers lie with the pale, downtrodden waitress Emma, and a strange yellow dog lurking in the shadows...Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations.

  • In the wake of an earthquake, the water level of an Icelandic lake drops suddenly, revealing the skeleton of a man half-buried in its sandy bed. It is clear immediately that it has been there for many years. There is a large hole in the skull. Yet more mysteriously, a heavy communication device is attached to it, possibly some sort of radio transmitter, bearing inscriptions in Russian.

    The police are called in and Erlendur, Elinborg and Sigurdur Oli begin their investigation, which gradually leads them back to the time of the Cold War when bright, left-wing students would be sent from Iceland to study in the 'heavenly state' of Communist East Germany.

    The Draining Lake is another remarkable Indridason mystery about passions and shattered dreams, the fate of the missing and the grief of those left behind.

Sughrue is called in to solve a far from traditional missing persons case. A beautiful woman has vanished, and Sughrue is set to be the next in a long line of people who have tried to find her: the FBI, her well-connected Republican husband, and - most worryingly - a group of South American drug dealers. And his only clue is a hollowed-out sculpture of a duck.From Montana to the Mexican border, Sughrue embarks on a wild ride, as he finds himself in and out of trouble - and the beds of one or two women. And, as he runs from his memories of Vietnam, he ponders the meaning of loyalty and revenge. This is a journey like no other from the pen of James Crumley, the master of a generation of crime writers.

  • I Am Pilgrim

    Terry Hayes

    Can you commit the perfect crime?



    Pilgrim is the codename for a man who doesn't exist. The adopted son of a wealthy American family, he once headed up a secret espionage unit for US intelligence. Before he disappeared into anonymous retirement, he wrote the definitive book on forensic criminal investigation.



    But that book will come back to haunt him. It will help NYPD detective Ben Bradley track him down. And it will take him to a rundown New York hotel room where the body of a woman is found facedown in a bath of acid, her features erased, her teeth missing, her fingerprints gone. It is a textbook murder - and Pilgrim wrote the book.



    What begins as an unusual and challenging investigation will become a terrifying race-against-time to save America from oblivion. Pilgrim will have to make a journey from a public beheading in Mecca to a deserted ruins on the Turkish coast via a Nazi death camp in Alsace and the barren wilderness of the Hindu Kush in search of the faceless man who would commit an appalling act of mass murder in the name of his God.

  • Knots And Crosses

    Ian Rankin

    And in Edinburgh of all places. I mean, you never think of that sort of thing happening in Edinburgh, do you...?' 'That sort of thing' is the brutal abduction and murder of two young girls. And now a third is missing, presumably gone to the same sad end. Detective Sergeant John Rebus, smoking and drinking too much, his own young daughter spirited away south by his disenchanted wife, is one of many policemen hunting the killer. And then the messages begin to arrive: knotted string and matchstick crosses - taunting Rebus with pieces of a puzzle only he can solve.

  • My Dark Places

    James Ellroy

    'ELLROY IS A UNIQUE VOICE IN AMERICAN FICTION' - JONATHAN KELLERMAN On 21 June 1958, Geneva Hilliker Ellroy left her home in California. She was found strangled the next day. Her 10 year-old son James had been with her estranged husband all weekend and was informed of her death on his return. Her murderer was never found, but her death had an enduring legacy on her son - he spent his teen and early adult years as a wino, petty burglar and derelict.

    Only later, through his obsession with crime fiction, triggered by his mother's murder, did Ellroy begin to delve into his past. Shortly after the publication of his ground-breaking novel WHITE JAZZ, he determined to return to Los Angeles and with the help of veteran detective Bill Stoner, attempt to solve the 38-year-old killing.

    The result is one of the few classics of crime non-fiction and autobiography to appear in the last few decades; a hypnotic trip to America's underbelly and one man's tortured soul.

  • Une enquête de Nicolas Le Floch, commissaire au Châtelet sous les ordres du célèbre Sartine, lieutenant général de police de Louis XV.  Le commissaire Nicolas Le Floch est chargé par M. de Sartine et par la cour de démêler une affaire délicate et complexe : la mort mystérieuse du fils d'un courtisan proche du dauphin et de parti dévot.  Pourquoi les parents défendent-ils la thèse du suicide alors que leur enfant n'avait jamais manifesté son désir d'en finir ? Pourquoi son frère a-t-il disparu ?  Qui est véritablement son énigmatique fiancée ?  Très rapidement, Nicolas conduira ses investigations à Paris, puis à Versailles dans l'entourage de la famille royale et de la favorite Mme de Pompadour.  Dans un royaume toujours en guerre et agité par des querelles religieuses, il peut se révéler très dangereux de s'intéresser de trop près à des imbroglios politiques protégés par des secrets de famille...

  • Le suaire de l'archevêqueEnvoyée à Rome pour porter un message du Roi Ultan of Armagh au Pape Vitalien, Fidelma retrouve Eadulf, son partenaire dans la résolution de sa dernière enquête. Il est en effet le secrétaire de l'archevêque Wighard de Canterbury, de passage à Rome pour recevoir la bénédiction du Pape et lui remettre de nombreux présents des Royaumes saxons.Mais Wighard est assassiné en pleine nuit dans le domus hospitale, la demeure des hôtes du Palais du Latran, et les objets précieux disparaissent. Un moine irlandais est arrêté par les gardes du Palais. Dans le lourd contexte politique de l'époque, ces crimes peuvent mettre le feu aux poudres entre les royaumes irlandais et saxons, et entre l'église de Rome et celle d'Irlande. Aussi Fidelma de Kildare et Eadulf de Canterbury, sont-ils chargés par l'Evêque Gélasius de mener une enquête impartiale et de faire toute la lumière sur cette énigme.

  • Une enquête de Nicolas Le Floch, commissaire au Châtelet sous les ordres du célèbre Sartine, lieutenant général de police de Louis XV.En 1761, le jeune Nicolas Le Floch quitte sa Bretagne natale pour entrer au service de M. de Sartine, chef des affaires secrètes de Louis XV. Devenu l'un des espions du lieutenant général de police, Nicolas va vite découvrir la cruauté des hommes et la brutalité des complots : à Paris, dans le monde du crime, tout tourne autour du jeu, de la débauche et du vol qui communiquent par d'innombrables labyrinthes. Son premier meurtre le plonge au coeur des perversités de la capitale : un commissaire corrompu, une épouse ex-pensionnaire d'une maison de plaisir, un cadavre rue des Blancs-Manteaux, un bourreau médecin légiste à la morgue de la Basse-Geôle... Et si tout cela le conduisait trop près du roi et de Mme de Pompadour ? Une enquête qui fait revivre le Paris du XVIIIe siècle, son atmosphère, ses rues, ses passants, ses rites, ses crimes et ses mystères.
