Private Investigator Mysteries
Martha “Marty” Hudson has it all…almost. While her best friend, Irene Adler, is a dot-com millionaire many times over, Marty’s days are filled with working as a barista at a Stanford University coffee bar, crashing various courses and lectures, and dodging the rent collector at her crummy apartment. But when Marty suddenly finds out that a long-lost aunt has left her a Victorian home at 221 Baker Street in the heart of San Francisco, she’s hopeful her luck is about to turn around! Okay, so the Victorian is run down and probably in need of more repairs than Marty could ever afford, but at least it’s a link to family. However when Marty starts sifting through the contents of the dilapidated home, she realizes her aunt’s death may not have been natural…and might have been a case of murder!

Festivals can be murder…

When Julia’s full-time café return clashes with a festival, thousands of music lovers descending on the village should be precisely what she needs to kick off a new era. But the council throws a spanner in the works when her cafe is “required not to operate” due to blocked road access. The front entrance, that is, and with the festival happening right behind her café, the kernels of a plan begin to pop…

And it seems like the perfect plan to get through the hectic weekend until the lead singer of the headlining band, Electric Fury, dies before he gets a chance to perform on the main stage. Having witnessed how the victim, Jett Fury, interacted with his entourage, Julia is sure there’s more to the story than the local Detective Inspector’s “accidental” theory.

Biographies of Environmentalists & Naturalists
John James Audubon is renowned for his masterpiece of natural history and art, The Birds of America, the first nearly comprehensive survey of the continent’s birdlife. And yet few people understand, and many assume incorrectly, what sort of man he was. How did the illegitimate son of a French sea captain living in Haiti, who lied both about his parentage and his training, rise to become one of the greatest natural historians ever and the greatest name in ornithology? In Under a Wild Sky this Pulitzer Prize finalist, William Souder reveals that Audubon did not only compose the most famous depictions of birds the world has ever seen, but he also composed a brilliant mythology of self. In this dazzling work of biography, Souder charts the life of a driven man who, despite all odds, became the historical figure we know today.
