A Grave Waiting by Jill Downie: In St. Peter Port Harbour on the Channel Island of Guernsey, Detective Inspector Ed Moretti and his partner, Detective Sergeant Liz Falla, are called in to investigate the shooting death of arms dealer Bernard Masterson on the Just Desserts, his luxury yacht. Why are Masterson, his glamorous partner in crime, Adèle Letourneau, and his thuggish bodyguard here on the island? And how are an ex-Folies Bergère dancer, a former espionage agent, and a wealthy sax-playing financier involved — or are they?
With the knowledge that there’s nowhere to hide in a world now as small as his island, and not knowing whom to trust in a mystery involving money and international intrigue, Moretti goes to London in search of answers, returning to Guernsey for a violent showdown on the Just Desserts.

Birds of a Feather by Don Easton: Lily Rae is on holiday in El Paso, Texas, when she’s kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel. El Paso borders on one of the most dangerous places in the world – Ciudad Juarez, Mexico – a city caught in the grip of a war between cartels.  Her disappearance is investigated by undercover Mountie Jack Taggart, who discovers a Canadian link to the cartel and penetrates the organization. Taggart is sent to El Paso, where he is partnered with special U.S. Customs agent John Adams. Neither Taggart nor Adams know they have been paired together for a secret purpose.  Taggart has strict orders to stay out of Juarez, but his gut instinct directs him otherwise. The investigation seems to be going smoothly – until the cartel discovers his true identity.  Practically torn from the headlines, Birds of a Feather will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you questioning right and wrong.

Sowing Poison by Janet Kellough: After an absence of many years, Nathan Elliott returns to the lakeside village of Wellington in Ontario’s Prince Edward County to be at his dying father’s side.

Claiming that she can contact the dead, she begins to hold séances for the villagers.
Thaddeus Lewis, a Methodist circuit rider, is outraged. Lewis’s ethical objections propel him on a twisted path. On his journey, Lewis encounters towering sand dunes and a mysterious wild boy. After coming up against greed, fraud, and murder, can Lewis learn the truth about Nathan Elliott? Religious conflict and political dissension all play a part in this tale set in 1844 Upper Canada.

A Green Place for Dying by R.J.Harlick: Meg Harris, an amateur sleuth who drinks a little too much and is afraid of the dark, returns to her home in the West Quebec wilderness after a trip.
