Margaret Maron, New York Times bestselling author and Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, returns to Colleton County with an exciting new Deborah Knott mystery . . . LONG UPON THE LAND On a quiet August morning, Judge Deborah Knott's father Kezzie makes a shocking discovery on a remote corner of his farm: the body of a man bludgeoned to death. Investigating this crime, Deborah's husband, Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant, soon uncovers a long-simmering hostility between Kezzie and the slain man over a land dispute. The local newspaper implies that Deborah's family may have had something to do with the murder-and that Dwight is dragging his feet on the case. Meanwhile, Deborah is given a cigarette lighter that once belonged to her mother. The cryptic inscription inside rekindles Deborah's curiosity about her parents' past, and how they met. For years she has wondered how the daughter of a wealthy attorney could have married a widowed, semi-illiterate bootlegger, and this time she's determined to find the answer. But why are Deborah's brothers so reluctant to talk about the dead man? Is the murder linked to Kezzie's illegal whiskey business? And could his courtship of Deborah's mother have something to do with the bad blood between the two families? Despite Deborah's promise not to interfere in Dwight's work, she cannot stop herself from doing everything she can to help clear her brothers and her father from suspicion . . .

Pieter Posthumus liebt Amsterdam und will an keinem anderen Ort der Welt leben – und das, obwohl die große Wirtschaftskonferenz mit ihren Horden von Delegierten und zahlreichen Gegendemonstrationen gerade nichts als Unruhe verbreitet. Immerhin geht im »Büro der einsamen Toten« alles seinen gewohnten Gang. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem Posthumus den Tod eines Junkies untersucht, der einen viel zu vornehmen Kamelhaarmantel trägt ... Bald gibt es noch einen Toten: einen Teilnehmer der Konferenz – und anscheinend hängen die beiden Todesfälle miteinander zusammen. Haben die Taten einen ideologischen Hintergrund? Oder gibt es doch ein persönliches Motiv? Die Ermittlungen führen Posthumus zurück in seine eigene Vergangenheit als Student mit radikalen politischen Überzeugungen. Tiefer und tiefer gerät er hinein in ein Netz aus politischen Intrigen und dunklen Familiengeheimnissen.

"Every Margaret Maron is a celebration of something remarkable." --New York Times Book Review "Maron writes with wit and sophistication." --USA Today "There's nobody better." --Chicago Tribune NYPD Detective Sigrid Harald is still reeling from the untimely death of her lover, acclaimed painter Oscar Nauman, when she is called to investigate the poisoning of two homeless men in the West Village. As she examines the mysterious deaths, Sigrid uncovers a grim neighborhood scandal surrounding two influential women: one a haughty mafia widow, the other a retired opera prima donna, both with dark secrets they've kept under wraps for decades. Was the poison really meant for the homeless men, or were they merely unintended victims as the decades-long feud between the two women comes to a head?

"Opening a new Margaret Maron is like unwrapping a Christmas gift." --Cleveland Plain Dealer "Of today's series writers none has been more successful at weaving the bond between star and audience than Margaret Maron." --San Diego Union-Tribune

With sass and wit, Deborah Knott, formerly a defense attorney in North Carolina's Colleton County, is putting herself firmly on the seat of power -- a district judgeship. She's also making good on a campaign promise: helping to build houses for battered women. Here Deborah expects muscle aches, not the near-rape of a young woman and the murder of her attacker. And she certainly never expects that her hammer -- complete with her fingerprints -- will be the murder weapon...
