Arne Hildeng is found dead on his luxury Storebro yacht docked at the harbor in Skärhamn. Also onboard is Andrea, his wife. Did she murder her husband? Or could the murderer be someone else in the Hildeng family? And Chief Inspector Greger Thulin didn´t expect to see yet another Storebro dock at the wharf. Arne Hildeng´s brother, Jon, and his wife, Mette, climb out of that boat, and Inspector Katarina Linde notices that Mette tries to keep her face hidden. But Katarina can see that the bruises are fresh. At the same time, an explosion of violence is going on in Gothenburg´s underworld. The illegal gambling market and drug trade aren´t yielding enough for the many who want a piece of the action. And when the gangs start to break up, one of their leaders will have a key role in Katarina´s life. It is said that when a gambling addiction gets its claws in you, it´s not only your own life that is ruined; you drag your family down with you, and in this suspenseful thriller by Ramona Fransson, the gambling devil isn´t satisfied with crushing only one family. In Ramona Fransson´s fourth detective story, Lethal Games, you get to know the Hildeng and Caling families. They are affluent and outwardly happy and prosperous, but if one scratches the surface, humiliation and hatred are revealed. And when one of their sons is pulled into the Gothenburg gang´s violent and criminal world, the final piece of the beautiful façade cracks. Ramona Fransson has established herself as one of Sweden´s most popular detective story authors. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Judith Bourque.

When a woman´s partially decomposed body washes ashore in Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone is forced into a case far more difficult than it initially appears. Identifying the woman is just the first step in what proves to be an emotionally charged investigation.Florence Horvath was an attractive, recently divorced heiress from Florida; she also had a penchant for steamy sex and was an enthusiastic participant in a video depicting the same. Somehow the combination of her past and present got her killed, but no one is talking, not the crew of the Lady Jane, the Fort Lauderdale yacht moored in Paradise Harbor; not her very blond, very tan twin sisters, Corliss and Claudia; and not her curiously affectless parents, living out a sterile retirement in a Miami high rise. But someone, Jesse, has to speak for the dead, even if it puts him in harm´s way. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Sowers.
