After hiking miles of rough terrain through the wilds of Alaska, Dalton finally comes face to face with the killer, only to realize it is the same man who has haunted him for ten years.

From the acclaimed author of Wolf Winter comes a new historical crime novel with all the intrigue and atmosphere of Burial Rites and the suspense of The Tenderness of Wolves. Taking place a hundred years after the shocking events of Wolf Winter in the same haunting territory, In the Month of the Midnight Sun is set in high summer, under the searing light of a sun that never quite sets. Sweden, 1855. “Worst thing I ever saw...” The Minister of Justice has received a disturbing message. There’s been a massacre on one of Lapland's mountains: a priest, a law enforcement officer, and a local settler have been slaughtered by one of the indigenous Sami people. The murderer is in custody, but he refuses to talk. The Minister dispatches his son-in-law, a geologist, to investigate, as there is another reason to visit Blackåsen: it is a mountain with many secrets, a mountain whose rich mineral deposits have never been exploited. But Magnus does not journey alone. The Minister’s daughter, in disgrace, is sent with him. The two unlikely companions venture out of the sweltering city to the wild landscape of Sweden’s far north under the strange, insomnia-inducing light of the midnight sun. There, the shocking truth they discover about the murders and what lies behind them will only be matched by what they discover about themselves. For Lovisa and Magnus—and for the people of Blackåsen—nothing will ever be the same again. In The Month of the Midnight Sun tells a riveting story of the collision of worlds old and new, and cements Ekbäck’s status as a master of Nordic noir.

Boom times came to the forgotten little southwestern town of Chamisaville just as the rest of America was in the Great Depression. They came when a rattletrap bus loaded with stolen dynamite blew sky-high, leaving behind a giant gushing hot spring. Within minutes, the town's wheeler-dealers had organized, and within a year, Chamisaville was flooded with tourists and pilgrims, and the wheeler-dealers were rich. Spanning forty years, The Magic Journey tells the tale of how progress transformed a rural backwater into a boomtown. At first, it was a magic time for Chamisaville—almost as if every day were a holiday. But the euphoria gradually dissipated, and the land-hungry developers, speculators, and interlopers moved in. Finally, the day came when Chamisaville's people found themselves all but displaced, their children no longer heirs to their land or their tradition. With mounting intensity, The Magic Journey reaches a climax that is tragically foreordained. A sensitive, vital, and honest chronicle of life in America's Southwest, it is also an incisive commentary on what America has become on its road to progress. The Magic Journey is part of the New Mexico Trilogy, which includes The Milagro Beanfield War and The Nirvana Blues.

Hitch a ride with JW Palmer on a journey of love, joy, pain and awakening, as he rides his bicycle alone across the heartland of America. Bewildered by the blur of events -- two years in Vietnam, four years in college, and six in a mind-numbing marriage -- he was suffering from PTSD. As his wheels turn, he untangles his mind and emotions one revolution at a time. Through a succession of vignettes we get to peer into his soul, as he struggles to evolve within the chrysalis of the '70s. Disillusioned after finishing college in 1974, he and his wife split up and he went looking for answers. As he fights his mind, the wind and the terrain, he meets the amazing people and animals who live in the middle of the country. People are interested in his story, and the shy poet evolves into a skilled storyteller, telling them about his trip and us about his search for the light at the end of the tunnel, as he finds out that the light he is looking for is within ...blazing away like the sun shining at midnight. About the Author: Originally from Richmond, Indiana, Alan Joseph Parker now lives in Portland, Oregon.I wrote my first poem in 1968 sitting on a rock in Vietnam watching the full harvest moon rise through scattered clouds over the mountains, and feeling at peace in the middle of the war. I have been writing ever since. I have hundreds of poems but this is my first novel. Publisher's website: http: //

Written by the expedition doctor, this is the author's diary from the historic Chinese Antarctic expedition to build Kunlun Station in the middle of the immense Antarctic ice sheet. The expedition team not only had to ascend over four thousand meters at temperatures of sixty Fahrenheit below zero while fighting through snowstorms, they also had to overcome all sorts of difficulties, such as constantly changing plans, impossible loads, discontented construction workers, and low pay. Were they taking crazy risks? Was the expedition a foolish endeavor? The author's account is a vivid, truthful description of this great expedition undertaken by a team of moving individuals who aren't without their flaws and crude, or even sometimes rule-breaking, behavior. It is a story worth reading.
