Kick Keswick has lived an extraordinary life. For twenty-five years she was the power behind the throne at a venerable London auction house and a master jewel thief. (Stealing only from those who deserved it, of course.) That changed when she fell in love with Commander Thomas Curtis of Scotland Yard and retired to Provence to live respectably. But now, someone is stealing irreplaceable jewels from Paris to Portofino – and using Kick’s signature techniques. To make matters worse, Thomas has disappeared with her secret cache of precious stones. It looks like someone is trying to lure Kick out of retirement.




Gigi Pandian

When historian Jaya Jones receives a mysterious package containing a jewel-encrusted artifact, she discovers the secrets of a lost Indian treasure may be hidden in a Scottish legend. But she’s not the only one on the trail. From San Francisco to the Highlands of Scotland, Jaya must evade a shadowy stalker as she follows hints from the hastily scrawled note to a remote archaeological dig. When a member of the dig’s crew is murdered, Jaya must figure out which of the scholars helping her unravel clues–and vying for her affections–is the  killer.


Cocaine Blues

Kerry Greenwood

The London season is in full fling at the end of the 1920s, but the Honourable Phryne Fishershe is rapidly tiring of the tedium of arranging flowers, making polite conversations with retired colonels, and dancing with weak-chinned men. Instead, Phryne decides it might be rather amusing to try her hand at being a lady detective in Melbourne, Australia. Almost immediately from the time she arrives, Phryne is embroiled in mystery: poisoned wives, cocaine smuggling rings, corrupt cops, and communism not to mention erotic encounters with a beautiful Russian dancer until her adventure reaches its steamy end in the Turkish baths of Little Lonsdale Street.
