A Touch Of Death from the Author: Charles Williams. The score would be an easy one—if it weren’t for the women involved Out of work and dead broke, Lee Scarborough is a long way from his days as a football hero when he meets the sunbathing Diana James—an innocent-looking creature with a plan to make a fortune. A few months’ back, her lover embezzled $120,000 from a bank, but disappeared before she could get her hands on the cash. The police think he’s fled the state, but Diana is sure he’s dead, and knows who killed him: his wife, Madelon Butler, a sadistic drunk who is capable of anything. The cash is inside Madelon’s house, waiting to be stolen a third time, and all Diana needs is a patsy. Scarborough fits the bill. The plan sails along smoothly until Scarborough meets Mrs. Butler. By the time his luck runs out, he’d rather face a dozen hulking linebackers than these two beauties, who have been driven to a frenzy by jealousy, greed, and lust.

The Fearsome Touch Of Death from the Author: Robert E. Howard. Robert Ervin Howard was an American pulp writer and is especially noted for his memorable depictions of ""a sombre universe of swashbuckling adventure and darkling horror."" He is well known for having created the character Conan the Barbarian. This collection includes Howard's short horror and fantasy stories, including the masterpiece "Pigeons from Hell," which Stephen King calls "one of the finest horror stories of century," a tale of two travelers who stumble upon the ruins of a Southern plantation-and into the maw of its fatal secret. In "Black Canaan" even the best warrior has little chance of taking down the evil voodoo man with unholy powers-and none at all against his wily mistress, the diabolical High Priestess of Damballah. In these and other lavishly illustrated classics, such as the nightmare "The Cairn on the Headland," Howard spins tales of unrelenting terror, the legacy of one of the world's great masters of the macabre.

A Touch Of Dead from the Author: Charlaine Harris. Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her job as a cocktail waitress in Merlotte's, a small-town bar in small-town Bon Temps, deep in Louisiana. She's funny and pretty and, thanks to her grandmother, she's very well-mannered - but since not many people truly appreciate her ability to read their minds, the guys haven't exactly been beating down her door ... And then along came Bill, tall, dark and handsome - and Sookie couldn't 'hear' a word he was thinking. He was exactly the type of guy she'd been waiting all her life for. Of course, Bill had a disability of his own: fussy about his food, not into suntans, bit of a night person: yep, Bill was a vampire. But at least now Sookie knows there *are* guys she can date who won't worry about her catching them thinking about other women ... And that's going to make Sookie's life really interesting!

The Feathery Touch Of Death from the Author: John Logue. When American golfer Barry Vinson turns up dead at the British Open, golf writer John Morris and his companion, Julia Sullivan, search for clues, but when an antique golf ball is stuffed down a second murder victim's throat, they uncover a bizarre mystery as old as the game itself. Vinson could pulverize his tee shots and dazzle with his short game. But when it came to personality, the brilliant young American was strictly a duffer -- until someone took him off the course. With an antique golf ball -- a 'feathery' -- stuffed down his throat. For sportswriter John Morris and the high-spirited Julia Sullivan, it is nearly a matter of even par ... until that second savage murder is committed. Now, through all the pomp and cutthroat competition of the British Open, Morris and Sullivan desperately try to solve the bizarre mystery, taking them back through the history of Scotland itself, where golf and bloody murder are all just part of the game. Published previously in paperback by Dell, this Morris & Sullivan Mystery is at last digitally available from QP Books -- an authorized and unabridged republication, and part of the complete, acclaimed series by master mystery writer John Logue.

Sidney Chambers And The Shadow Of Death from the Author: James Runcie. It is 1953, the coronation year of Queen Elizabeth II . Sidney Chambers, vicar of Grantchester and honorary canon of Ely Cathedral, is a thirty-two-year-old bachelor. Tall, with dark brown hair, eyes the color of hazelnuts, and a reassuringly gentle manner, Sidney is an unconventional clerical detective. He can go where the police cannot. Together with his roguish friend, inspector Geordie Keating, Sidney inquires into the suspect suicide of a Cambridge solicitor, a scandalous jewelry theft at a New Year's Eve dinner party, the unexplained death of a jazz promoter's daughter, and a shocking art forgery that puts a close friend in danger. Sidney discovers that being a detective, like being a clergyman, means that you are never off duty, but he nonetheless manages to find time for a keen interest in cricket, warm beer, and hot jazz-as well as a curious fondness for a German widow three years his junior. With a whiff of Agatha Christie and a touch of G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown, The Grantchester Mysteries introduces a wonderful new hero into the world of detective fiction.
