Det er forår, og kirsebærtræerne er ved at springe ud, da teenageren Oscar forsvinder. Han er mellemste barn i den kulørte og velhavende Dreyer-Hoff-familie, som er både kendt og berygtet for deres online auktionshus. Eneste spor efter drengen, er et kryptisk brev, som ingen kan tyde. To dage senere finder kranføreren Michael liget af et ungt menneske på Amagerforbrændingen. Er det Oscar? Og hvordan er han i så fald endt der? Politiassistenterne Jeppe Kørner og Anette Werner hudfletter familien Dreyer-Hoff for at nå ind til sandheden om dem og om Oscar. Anette er tilbage efter barsel, sprudlende og i bedre form end nogensinde, mens Jeppe balancerer på en knivsæg for at finde fodfæste som kæreste og papfar til Saras to døtre. Det gør det ikke nemmere, at sagen handler om et barn. Om forældreskab. Og død. Og den pensionerede litteraturprofessor Esther får utilsigtet en rolle i sagen. Hun er kommet i gang med at skrive igen på trods af, at vennen Gregers måske nærmer sig det sidste punktum før hende.

#35 Real Murders (Charlaine Harris)

Har for 100 år siden læst de første par bøger i serien om Aurora Teagarden, men for at få styr på serien, er jeg nu startet forfra (med lydbøger på 1,5 x hastighed ;o)). Lidt “basal”, men meget hyggelig underholdning.

The New York Times best-selling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels launches another acclaimed series with this mystery. Aurora “Roe” Teagarden and the members of the Real Murders Club meet monthly to analyze famous cases. But when a member dies in a manner resembling a case the group was discussing, suddenly everybody is both a suspect and a potential victim.

#34 Når falkene flyver (Wilbur Smith)

Andet bind i serien om Ballantyne-familien, der generelt virkelig giver den gas med at stjæle, røve og bruge all things African.. Har til gengæld på fornemmelsen, at omtalen af bogen har et par år på bagen :oO

Kort om bogen fra mofibo.com:
Den unge, engelske læge Robyn Ballantyne søger at hjælpe negrene i den afrikanske landsby, hvor hun bor sammen med sin familie. Men samtidig må hun kæmpe med sine stærke følelser for slavehandleren Mungo St. John. Hendes bror, Zouga, har slet ikke samme moralske skrupler som sin søster. Han og hans to sønner opbygger et afrikansk imperium på diamanthandel og elfenben. De lader hånt om medmenneskelighed og helmer ikke, før de har fået, hvad de vil have: Om det så splitter en hel stamme af stolte krigere, der tappert forsvarer sig mod overmagten. “Aldrig tidligere har Wilbur Smiths kærlighed til og forståelse for det sydlige Afrikas historie fået bedre udtryk end i denne dramatiske beretning om kolonifolkets egoisme og skånselsløse hærgen i et land, hvis befolkning i bedste fald blev behandlet med ligegyldighed.” – Vestkysten
