An ex-cop chases after a relic and a rogue priest: quo;They don’t come much tougher than Ken Bruen’s Irish roughneck, Jack Taylor.” –The New York Times Book Review Jack Taylor is recovering from a mistaken medical diagnosis and a failed suicide attempt. Now that he’s going to live after all, he’s going to need money, so using his ex-Garda credentials he manages to land a job as a night-shift security guard. But his Ukrainian boss has Jack in mind for a bit of off-the-books work. He wants Jack to find what some claim to be the first true book of heresy, the famously blasphemous “Red Book,” currently in the possession of a rogue priest hiding out in Galway after fleeing a position at the Vatican. Despite Jack’s distaste for priests of any stripe, the money is too good to turn down. Then Em, the many-faced woman who’s had a vise on Jack’s heart and mind for the past two years, reappears and turns out to be entangled with the story of the Red Book, too—leading Jack down ever more mysterious and lethal pathways—in this “dark and often hilarious” series by an author who’s won the Shamus, Macavity, and Barry Awards and been an Edgar Award finalist (Toronto Star). “Bruen is in top form, and, although everything Taylor touches seems to turn to ash, he embodies such humanity that readers will be unable to resist rooting for him.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “The most mannered prose since the glory days of James Ellroy.”—Kirkus Reviews

Rebecca, a beautiful Irish lass with swirls of red curls framing her small face and large captivating blue eyes, the color of the sea, has been found out. She has committed treason...treason against her father, against her home Connemara...and maybe even against all of Ireland. Her crime is falling in love with Jonathan, a man from America who along with his friend Pierce are considered to be British spies and murderers. With the help of her brother, Father Ryan McEagan, Rebecca must prove they are not British spies. In truth, they have been helping the IRB-Irish Republican Brothers-fight against the British Army. Rebecca and Jonathans lives are in constant danger, but once Jonathan makes plans to leave Ireland, Rebecca vows to remain by his side. With or without her fathers blessings she plans to sail with Jonathan to America, to this newly created state of New Mexico, riding the train straight up to the Cloudcroft Lodge, his place above the clouds where he and Rebecca will marry. But will it end in happily ever after or in doomed death and eternity of haunting shadows?

At the close of the nineteenth century, Chicago offered the world a glimpse of humanity's most breathtaking possibilities and its most jaw-dropping horrors. Even as the White City emerged from the ashes of the Great Fire, serial killers like H.H. Holmes stalked the sparkling new boulevards and tragic accidents plagued the factories, slums and railroads that powered the churn of industrial innovation. Demons, mesmerists and birds of ill omen preyed on the unwary from the shadows. Ship captains spoke to the dead, while undertakers discovered reanimated corpses no longer requiring services. From posh mansions built on massacre grounds to the drowned quarries of a forest preserve, Ursula Bielski follows the dark undercurrents beneath the electric lights of the World's Fair.

A New York Times Best Mystery of the Year: A hard-drinking detective deals with double murder and an elusive vigilante. After much tragedy and violence, Jack Taylor has at long last landed at contentment. Of course, he still knocks back too much Jameson and dabbles in uppers, but he has a new woman in his life, a freshly bought apartment, and little sign of trouble on the horizon—until a wealthy Frenchman comes to him with a request to investigate the double murder of his twin sons. Jack is meanwhile roped into looking after his girlfriend’s nine-year-old, and is in for a shock with the appearance of a character out of his past. The plot is one big chess game and all of the pieces seem to be moving at the behest of one dangerously mysterious player: a vigilante called “Silence,” because he’s the last thing his victims will ever hear. This new novel filled with suspense and pitch-dark humor comes from a Shamus Award-winning author who’s been called “hard to resist, with his aching Irish heart, silvery tongue, and bleak noir sensibility” (TheNew York Times Book Review). “The Godfather of the modern Irish crime novel.”—Irish Independent

Reports on sightings of UFOs over County Roscommon in 1997 set in train a passionate interest in the paranormal and inspired Dara deFaoite to write this probing and scholarly book. Paranormal Ireland goes beyond recounting stories of ghosts, haunting, strange creatures in woods and poltergeists to reveal a rare insight into what science has failed to explain.Superbly readable Paranormal Ireland recreates from interviews and notes the appearance of big cats in Tipperary, sightings of UFOs over Roscommon, the harrowing experiences of a family in Galway at the hands of a poltergeist, amongst other mysterious tales. DeFaoite has produced a book with all the feeling and depth of fiction but more shocking because it’s true. It also includes a Travel Guide to the Paranormal in Ireland.

Susan Spano, America’s original Frugal Traveler, explores some of the most romantic, most exotic, and wildest corners of the world in this captivating collection of her best-loved pieces. French Ghosts, Russian Nights, and American Outlaws: Souvenirs of a Professional Vagabond takes the reader on magical trips, when everything conspired to make a place unforgettable, like a temple in Java at sunrise or an ice hotel in the Artic Circle at sunset. In some of the stories, Susan finds the kind of enlightenment that only travel can provide by following in the footsteps of luminaries such as Federico Fellini, Julia Child, and Chairman Mao. Other stories are about travel itself: how it became Susan’s passion and calling; how it fed her incurably restless spirit; how it inspired her philosophy of travel and life: Go forth and find meaning. Take a condemned cable car over the Yangtze River or a shared taxi over the Andes with a leaking gas tank and chain-smoking driver. Eat oysters and drink martinis wherever you can. And, as often as possible, come home with a tan.
