This updated and expanded second edition is the true story of the unsolved murder of Florence Nightingale’s goddaughter. Florence Nightingale Shore grew up in a Victorian family that found itself mired in controversy and scandal. She became a respected Queen’s Nurse, who worked for five years in France from 1914 and was decorated for her heroism in World War 1. Tragically, on her return to England, Florence was murdered on a moving train – a classic ‘closed room’ murder mystery in a railway carriage. In spite of the best efforts of the local police, Scotland Yard and the famous pathologist Bernard Spilsbury, the crime was never solved. But now a new suspect has been identified, and another mystery has been uncovered amongst the shadowy characters surrounding the crime, to add to the unanswered questions: Who was ‘the man in the brown suit’? What was the significance of the unloaded revolver? And did the Arlington burglar have a sinister reason to burn all his clothing? These questions, and the breathtaking new theory that would rewrite the whole story of Florence’s life, are all explored in this fascinating book, which combines mystery with history and true crime with true heroism. Florence’s story ranges from Victorian England to South Africa, China and war-torn Europe. Her family members emerge as flawed, fascinating characters, and her brutal death as one of the most tragic and enduring unsolved crimes in England.

From internationally acclaimed and Governor General’s Award-winning author Steven Heighton comes a passionate novel of buried secrets, the repercussions of war and finding love among the ruins Elias Trifannis is desperate to belong somewhere. To make his dying ex-cop father happy, he joins the military—but in Afghanistan, by the time he realizes his last-minute bid for connection was a terrible mistake, it’s too late and a tragedy has occurred. In the aftermath, exhausted by nightmares, Elias is sent to Cyprus to recover, where he attempts to find comfort in the arms of Eylül, a beautiful Turkish journalist. But the lovers’ reprieve ends in a moment of shocking brutality that drives Elias into Varosha, once a popular Greek-Cypriot resort town, abandoned since the Turkish invasion of 1974. Hidden in the lush, overgrown ruins is a community of exiles and refugees living resourcefully but comfortably. Thanks to the cheerfully corrupt Colonel Kaya, who turns a blind eye, they live under the radar of the Turkish authorities. As he begins to heal, Elias finds himself drawn to the enigmatic and secretive Kaiti while he learns at last to “simply belong.” But just when it seems he has found sanctuary, events he himself set in motion have already begun to endanger it.

What If The Virgin Mary Wrote An Account Of Her Life After The Crucifixion-What Would It Be Worth? A priceless painting is altered to hide its suggestion that the Virgin Mary wrote an account of her life after the crucifixion. Its revelations would forever change the role of women in the Catholic Church. Marcus Po, reclusive book reviewer for the Burlington Times, is determined to learn the painting’s potentially explosive secret, despite powerful forces within and outside of the Church who are desperate to stop him. The fate of the Church and the life of a pope hang in the balance. With the help of a beautiful PhD candidate in art history, Marcus’s quest takes him from his isolated cabin on Lake Champlain, to the labyrinthine catacombs of Paris; from a medieval monastery on an island near Cannes, to a neolithic tomb high in the mountains of Corsica. There, he will learn the secret of the Nightingale Madonna-if he survives. "A fascinating spin on the intersection between religious zealotry and psychosis. Well done."-Dr. Pat Pope, Clinical Psychologist. "This fast-paced contemporary mystery/thriller...grabs the reader from the first page and never lets go!" -Allene Stanton Fay, Publisher and Editor, New Jersey Countryside Magazine. “...I was blown away by the richness of the words and the cliff-hanging chapter endings. The book is a great entertaining escape.”-Claudia Taller, author of Daffodils and Fireflies.

An unexpected bequest sends waves of violence through the placid groves of academe in Joanne Dobson's third mystery to feature Professor Karen Pelletier. Still untenured, and therefore on shaky academic ground, feisty young Enfield College professor Pelletier finds herself going head-to-head with the resident Edgar Allan Poe expert, Elliot Corbin, an academic windbag of monumental proportions who is lobbying to be appointed to the much-coveted and recently vacated Palaver Chair. So when Karen receives a serendipitous bonanza in the form of never-before-seen manuscripts and journals by the nineteenth-century poet Emmeline Foster, who is rumored to have killed herself for the love of Poe, Corbin is predictably put out. Subsequently, the corrosive Corbin is stabbed to death in his home on Thanksgiving Day. Karen has an airtight alibi, but other suspects abound--from the head of the women's studies program, who also pines for the Palaver Chair; to Visiting Poet Jane Birdwort, whose history with Corbin turns out to be far longer (and closer) than anyone had known; to the perpetually disgruntled department secretary; to a young female adjunct professor whose unbridled ambition will not be denied. Then Karen's office is ransacked, and a number of the Emmeline Foster journals and poems are stolen, so it looks more and more as if Corbin's death may be inextricably entwined with the muse of his life--poet of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. The undeniably attractive Lieutenant Piotrowski is called in, and, as in the past, he solicits Karen's help, involving her once more in the thankless task of investigating her not-always-so-collegial colleagues. As she did in her first two widely acclaimed novels, Joanne Dobson uses her savvy insider's knowledge of academic politics and her considerable talent for complex plotting to produce a witty and eminently satisfying entertainment.
