A Bone To Pick

Aurora Teagarden's life was pretty much in order, though she wouldn't have objected to a nice relationship. All things considered, however, there wasn't anything to complain about. Then Jane Engle died. Aurora and Jane had been friends – not particularly close friends, but they'd both been members of the Real Murder Society and on occasion had shared tea, as well as an interest in crime. So Aurora was surprised to discover that she was named in Jane's will as the heir to her home and some money… about a half million dollars, in fact. A nice house, a lot of money… things were looking up nicely. But the house held a secret – a fact that was frighteningly obvious the first time Aurora went there and realized that someone had broken in, had been searching for something. It didn't take long to discover the secret: Jane had hidden a skull, and Aurora had just found it. Aurora Teagarden was no stranger to a good mystery, but she wasn't quite certain what to do with this one. Before she has a chance to consider her next move, someone decides that she already knows too much. Now she has a few more questions to answer: Whodunit? Who was it done to? And who seemed to keep on wanting to do it?

A Fool and His Honey

Sleepless nights, a cross-country chase and a temporary stint at motherhood turn Aurora Teagarden's life upside down. When her husband's niece Regina shows up unannounced on their doorstep with a baby and a secret, Aurora's perpetual curiosity leaps into overdrive – especially when the body of the girl's husband is found ax murdered in her own backyard.

Regina flees the scene, and Aurora is left holding the baby, struggling with the intricacies of bottles, diapers – and a mystery. What was Regina running from? Why was her husband murdered? The answers are hidden back in Ohio, and that's just where Aurora goes, husband, baby and all. But Regina's secrets are very dangerous and Aurora walks right into them – much to her own peril.

Czysta Jak Łza

Chwyciłam nadgarstek w miejscu, w którym powinnam wyczuć tętno.

W środku chłodnej nocy w Shakespeare kucałam wśród drzew, trzymając za rękę martwego mężczyznę.

A teraz na plastikowych workach bezmyślnie zostawiłam odciski palców.

Lily Bard unika towarzystwa i strzeże mrocznej tajemnicy z przeszłości. Kiedy nie sprząta cudzych domów, trenuje karate. A odkąd znalazła zwłoki Pardona Albee, wszyscy kojarzą ją z brudną robotą każdego rodzaju.

Czy szuflady nocnych stolików i kosze na śmieci kryją w sobie wystarczająco informacji, by Lily odkryła, kto naprawdę sprzątnął Pardona?

Książki Charlaine Harris sprzedały się na świecie w kilkunastu milionach egzemplarzy. To pierwsza autorka, której siedem książek równocześnie znalazło się na liście bestsellerów „New York Timesa”. W nowej serii Harris przedstawia Lily Bard, młodą wielbicielkę siłowni i karate, która rozwiązuje zagadki kryminalne.

Ale przygotowań nie zdominują bezy, welony i kwiaty. Miejscowy lekarz i pielęgniarka zostali brutalnie zamordowani w swoim gabinecie, a dobrze znany Lily detektyw próbuje odnaleźć porwane dzieci. I wydaje się, że jest w to poważnie zamieszany jej przyszły szwagier. Lily ma tylko kilka dni, żeby dowiedzieć się, kim naprawdę jest Dill.

Czyste Sumienie

Wielu uważało, że Deedra była za łatwa. Ale kto miał powód, by ją załatwić?

Lily Bard znajduje w lesie ciało Deedry, którą męska część populacji miasteczka znała aż za dobrze. Sytuacja wydaje się oczywista: Deedra zginęła po kłótni z którymś z licznych kochanków. Ale Lily, która jak nikt inny znała zwyczaje swojej klientki, niepokoją szczegóły, na które policja nie zwróciła uwagi. Lily ma też inne sprawy na głowie: jej chłopak ciągle musi podróżować, a ona sama zaczyna się czuć niepokojąco dobrze w miasteczku i chciałaby tu zostać na dłużej. A to wróży same kłopoty

Martwy Aż Do Zmroku

Czytając Martwego aż do zmroku zaczynasz wyobrażać sobie autorkę powieści, Charlaine Harris, jako ukochane dziecko Laurell K. Hamilton i Joego R. Lansdale'a – może z Tanyą Huff i P. N. Elrodem jako rodzicami chrzestnymi. A jednak "humorystyczny wampirzy kryminał z elementem romantycznym" Harris jest nie tylko kolejną mroczną igraszką z naszym ulubionym motywem nieumarłych. Otrzymujemy również opowieść o parze odmieńców próbujących znaleźć sobie miejsce w świecie, i o ich związku, który nie jest łatwy ani dla niej, ani dla niego.

W świecie Harris wampiry stanowią mniejszość społeczną, która niedawno otrzymała prawa obywatelskie. Ich nierozcieńczona krew stała się niezwykle poszukiwanym lekarstwem. Na czarnym rynku fiolka wampirzego płynu życiowego – który podobno "tymczasowo łagodzi symptomy pewnych chorób i zwiększa potencję seksualną, będąc czymś w rodzaju skrzyżowania prednizonu z viagrą" – kosztuje dwieście dolarów. Odkąd prawnie uznano nieumarłych, kelnerka Sookie Stackhouse wyraźnie miała nadzieję, że ktoś taki zjawi się w małym północnoluizjańskim miasteczku Bon Temps. Jest więc po prostu zachwycona, kiedy wysoki, ciemnowłosy, przystojny, blady wampir siada przy jednym z jej stolików. Jednak dziewczyny nie pociąga wcale nieśmiertelność wampira ani nawet jego zmysłowa atrakcyjność. Wydaje się za to urzeczona faktem, że nie potrafi czytać mu w myślach. Sookie bowiem, wyobraźcie sobie, jest telepatką. Dar, który sama nazywa upośledzeniem, utrudnia jej życie, a zwłaszcza spotkania z mężczyznami (mimo iż jest atrakcyjną dwudziestopięcioletnią blondynką). Właściwie wszyscy w mieście nazywają ją stukniętą. Czasami, atakowana przez setki natrętnych, cudzych myśli, sama się uważa wariatkę.

Sookie jest bohaterką zupełnie niepodobną do Buffy, więc ratuje świeżo poznanego wampira – wampira Billa, tak, naprawdę! – przed parą ludzi chcących osuszyć go z cennej krwi. Właśnie wtedy odkrywa, że nie "słyszy" ani jednej myśli Billa. Fakt ten wystarczy, by Sookie poczuła do wampira sympatię. Cóż, niektórym związkom trzeba było na początek nawet mniej.

Okazuje się, że korzenie Billa sięgają Bon Temps, że wrócił tu i zamierza się osiedlić w rodzinnej posiadłości, którą właśnie odziedziczył. W dodatku, walczył w wojnie domowej, a wampirem został w roku 1870. Fakty te zachwycają babcię Sookie, oddaną członkinię lokalnego klubu Potomków Wybitnych Poległych. Bill może dostarczyć klubowi szczegółów, dzięki którym babcia i inni członkowie znajdą się w "genealogicznym siódmym niebie".

Jednak szczęście nie tak prosto osiągnąć. Gdy zamordowano dwie młode kobiety, a na ich udach koroner znajduje ślady kłów, podejrzenie pada na wampiry, czyli także (a może przede wszystkim) na Billa. Mordercą mógłby też być Jason, seksowny brat Sookie, który uwielbia kobiety, choć lubi także lekką perwersję. Bill i Sookie (z niejaką pomocą pewnego wampira imieniem Bubba) muszą się zmienić w detektywów, rozwiązać zbrodnie i znaleźć prawdziwego przestępcę. Tak się to zaczyna…

"Pierwszorzędny kryminał… Przekonujący i zadziwiający". "The Washington Post Book World"

"Dobrze napisany i niezwykle interesujący… Wielka rzecz". "The Boston Glob"

"Atmosfera książek Harris nawiązuje do czarnego kryminału oraz powieści detektywistycznej… Fabułę stanowi świetnie skonstruowana historia, która sięga pod powierzchnię małomiasteczkowego życia". "Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel"

"Frapująca". "Minneapolis Star Tribune"

"Opowieści Harris na przemian czarują i mrożą czytelnikowi krew w żyłach. Z tą trudną kombinacją autorka radzi sobie bez problemów, wręcz doskonale". Carolyn G. Hart

"Styl Harris ma urok i lekkość, które przypominają styl powieści Anne Tyler… Jest oryginalny i zadziwiający. Niezwykłego smaku tej książce dodają nawiązania do powieści gotyckiej". "The Christian Science Monitor"

"Nadzwyczajna". "Library Journal"

"Styl Harris jest gawędziarski, zawsze przymilny, "tylko między nami dziewczynami". "Kirkus Reviews"

Real Murders

Agatha Award (nominee)

Publisher's Weekly

An ingenious plot and sufficient flow of blood keep the pages flying in Harris's (Sweet and Deadly) third novel, as a series of killings patterned after celebrated murders is perpetrated on the small community of Lawrenceton, Ga. Twenty-eight-year-old Aurora (Roe) Teagarden, professional librarian, belongs to the Real Murders club, a group of 12 enthusiasts who gather monthly to study famous baffling or unsolved crimes. As a meeting is to begin, Roe discovers the massacred body of a club member. She recognizes the method of slaughter as imitating the very crime she was to address that night-suddenly her life as armchair sleuth assumes an eerie reality. The murderer continues to claim victims, each in the style of a different historical killer. Roe herself becomes a target, and also attracts two admirers, Robin Crusoe, a famed mystery writer new to Lawrenceton, and club member/detective Arthur Smith. Death seems to have infused new life into her waning social calendar, an irony not lost on this pensive character. Harris draws the guilty and the innocent into an engrossing tale while inventing a heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray. (Dec.)

School Library Journal

YA- Someone is killing the crime buffs of the Real Murders Society in Lawrenceton, Georgia. A librarian, Aurora Teagarden, sets out to catch the brutal murderer after fellow club members end up as victims. The uncanny resemblances to famous crimes challenge Roe and her two admirers, policeman Arthur Smith and mystery writer Robin Crusoe, to pursue the criminal. The lighthearted, witty handling of characters contrasts with the heightening suspense as Aurora seeks clues by searching past mysteries for the killer's identity-until she is caught in the sadistic web of terror herself. Clever pacing along with ample red herrings and judiciously placed clues keep Harris's story moving briskly. Let's hope for another fast-paced mystery featuring Aurora and her friends.- Mary T. Gerrity, Queen Anne School, Upper Marlboro, MD

***

Aurora Teagarden, Lawrenceton, Georgia, librarian and member of a club devoted to the study of famous crimes, has prepared what she thinks ought to be a riveting speech for the Real Murders Society. But a playful murderer steals the show with a real-life re-enactment of the case Aurora has chosen, casting one of the club members as victim. Gathering her wits about her after the shock of discovering the body, Aurora-Roe to her friends-provides some tips for policeman Arthur Smith, another member of the club, on the similarities between the cases.

Soon bespectacled Roe is receiving attentions not only from Arthur but from mystery writer Robin Crusoe. Robin is new in town and a tenant of the apartment complex Roe manages for her mother. It is not long, however, before the unwonted glow of romance Roe is basking in is overshadowed by the murderer, who seems to have chosen her for his next victim. Roe is too smart to fall prey to the ghoulish prankster but he hits his mark the next time, killing the parents of one of her friends, again in the style of an earlier crime. Lawrenceton appears to have a serial killer on its hands, and an audacious one at that. He taunts the police further by planting evidence in one of their own vehicles, and on the properties of society members.

Roe is sure one of her fellow history buffs is guilty but can’t decide whether it’s Philip Allison, a mentally disturbed library worker; Gilford Doakes, whose special interest is mass murders; or someone seemingly more stable, like reporter Sally Allison or banker Bankston Waite. Supported by Arthur and Robin, between whom she is not yet ready to choose, Roe scours the chronicles of old murders and the real settings of the crimes for the clues that will crack the case.

Shakespeare’s Champion

Shakespeare, Arkansas, is a small Southern town with plenty of secrets, and Charlaine Harris's Lily Bard is just one more of its residents – albeit one harboring a few secrets of her own – with a desire to live quietly. Lily keeps to herself, between her job as a cleaning woman for several townspeople and her visits to the gym, where she's a devotee of karate and bodybuilding. These two pursuits seem a bit odd for the petite Southern woman, but as work and play, they keep her focused and balanced. When a fellow gym member is found dead after a workout with a barbell across his throat, Lily wants to believe it's an accident. But looking at the incident against the background of other recent events in Shakespeare, including a few incidents that appear to be racially motivated, she's afraid it could be a part of something much, much bigger – and much more sinister.

Shakespeare’s Counselor

Cleaning woman and karate expert Lily Bard is a woman with a complicated past. Trying her best to cope with her terrifying memories and horrible nightmares, she decides to join a weekly group therapy session in her hometown of Shakespeare, Arkansas. At first, Lily can hardly believe the number of her fellow Shakespeareans that share her life experiences.

As it turns out, the group members' feelings aren't the only things that need sorting out – they assemble for a session and find a woman dead, killed in bone-chilling fashion and deliberately left on display to send a twisted message. Who would commit such horrendous crime, and who is the intended recipient of the message?

Before long, Lily becomes embroiled in this disturbing murder and its aftermath, one in which the brutal killer's motives are entirely unclear. The truth is, the situation has dredged up more than a few of her own terrible secrets, and she may not be able to rest until she can untangle the who and why of this terrible crime. But can she accomplish this before the killer strikes again, and before her nightmares send her over the edge? Shakespeare's Counselor is the most complex and absorbing installment yet in Charlaine Harris's engaging, original, and more than slightly dark mystery series.

Shakespeare’s Landlord

Lily Bard is a loner.

Uncovering the real killer may be the only way to prove her innocence, and Lily realizes that she must focus on the other residents of tiny Shakespeare. Her job gives her easy access to people's private lives, and she begins to snoop, finding plenty of skeleton-filled closets, and exposing herself to the unwanted attentions of a murderer.
