#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.

Aurora “Roe” Teagarden and the members of the Real Murders Club meet monthly to analyze famous cases.

#20 Ikke et ord (Brad Parks)

OK historie om en dommer, hvis børn bortføres.

Om bogen fra mofibo.com:
Det er en helt almindelig onsdag eftermiddag. Dommer Scott Sampson er på vej hen for at hente sine seksårige tvillinger for at tage i svømmehallen, da hans kone, Alison, sender en besked om, at de skal til lægen, og at hun vil køre dem derhen. Scott tager derfor hjem, men da Alison kommer hjem lidt senere, er hun alene – ingen Sam, ingen Emma – og hun påstår, at hun ikke har sendt nogen besked … Telefonen ringer, og en anonym mand fortæller dommeren, hvilken dom han skal afsige i en kommende narkotikasag, og at de ikke må sige et ord til nogen, hvis de vil se deres børn igen. Sådan starter denne medrivende, intense krimi om en ung og kærlig familie, som bliver udsat for deres værst tænkelige mareridt. Et uforudsigeligt og nervepirrende spil begynder, og de ved, at et enkelt forkert træk kan blive fatalt. Ikke et ord er ekstremt spændende – med et fascinerende indblik i det amerikanske retssystem, hvor indflydelse og nepotisme hersker – men romanen er først og fremmest historien om to forældres desperate kamp for at få deres børn tilbage i live.

#13 The Perfect Mother (Aimee Molloy)

Ganske spændende krimi om en gruppe nybagte mødre, hvor et af børnene pludselig forsvinder – og så går der Desperate Housewives i den med sladder, bagtale og alt mulig andet godt :oO

Kort om bogen fra Goodreads.com:
An addictive psychological thriller about a group of women whose lives become unexpectedly connected when one of their newborns goes missing.

They call themselves the May Mothers—a collection of new moms who gave birth in the same month. Twice a week, with strollers in tow, they get together in Prospect Park, seeking refuge from the isolation of new motherhood; sharing the fears, joys, and anxieties of their new child-centered lives.

When the group’s members agree to meet for drinks at a hip local bar, they have in mind a casual evening of fun, a brief break from their daily routine. But on this sultry Fourth of July night during the hottest summer in Brooklyn’s history, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is abducted from his crib. Winnie, a single mom, was reluctant to leave six-week-old Midas with a babysitter, but the May Mothers insisted that everything would be fine. Now Midas is missing, the police are asking disturbing questions, and Winnie’s very private life has become fodder for a ravenous media.

Though none of the other members in the group are close to the reserved Winnie, three of them will go to increasingly risky lengths to help her find her son. And as the police bungle the investigation and the media begin to scrutinize the mothers in the days that follow, damaging secrets are exposed, marriages are tested, and friendships are formed and fractured.

#12 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do (Amy Morin)

Interessant bog om 13 ting, som mentalt stærke personer ikke gør – fx har de ikke ondt af sig selv, de laver ikke de samme fejl flere gange, og de er ikke bange for at prøve nye ting. Som sådan var det ikke rocket science, men jeg synes faktisk, det var en ret inspirerende bog alligevel :o)

Kort om bogen fra mofibo.com:
Everyone knows that regular exercise and weight training lead to physical strength. But how do we strengthen ourselves mentally for the truly tough times? And what should we do when we face these challenges? Or as psychotherapist Amy Morin asks, what should we avoid when we encounter adversity? Through her years counseling others and her own experiences navigating personal loss, Morin realized it is often the habits we cannot break that are holding us back from true success and happiness. Indulging in self-pity or agonizing over things beyond our control, obsessing over past events, resenting the achievements of others, or expecting immediate positive results all hold us back. Now, for the first time, Morin expands upon the 13 Things from her viral post and shares her tried-and-true practices for increasing mental strength. Increasing your mental strength can change your entire attitude. It takes practice and hard work, but with Morin’s specific tips, exercises, and troubleshooting advice, it is possible to not only fortify your mental muscle but also drastically improve the quality of your life.

#08 The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken (Tarquin Hall)

The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken

Tredje bind i fortællingerne om den indiske privatdetektiv Vish Puri, der er et virkelig muntert bekendtskab. Fantastisk oplæser og interessant plot, især i disse dage, hvor der jo desværre igen er ballade mellem Indien og Paktistan :o(

Om bogen fra mofibo.com:
Vish Puri is as fond of butter chicken as the next Punjabi. And when there’s plenty on offer at the Delhi Durbar hotel where he’s attending an India Premier League cricket match dinner, he’s the first to tuck in. Irfan Khan, father of Pakistani star cricketer Kamran Khan, can’t resist either. But the creamy dish proves his undoing. After a few mouthfuls, he collapses on the floor, dead. Clearly this isn’t a case of Delhi Belly. But who amongst the Bollywood stars, politicians, bureaucrats and industrialists poisoned Khan is a mystery. And with the capital’s police chief proving as incompetent as ever, it falls to Most Private Investigators to find out the truth.

Puri is soon able to link Khan to a bald bookie called Full Moon and all the clues point to the involvement of a gambling syndicate that controls the illegal X billion dollars betting industry. The answers seem to lie in Surat, the diamond cutting and polishing capital of the world (where Puri’s chief undercover operative Tubelight meets his match) and across the border in Pakistan, Puri’s nemesis, the one country where he has sworn never to set foot. Or do they?

A certain determined, grey-haired lady with a unique insight into the murder believes that the portly detective is barking up ‘a wrong tree.’ Is Mummy-ji right?Is there more to the murder than meets the eye? And why, to make life even more complicated for Vish Puri, has someone tried to steal the longest moustache in the world – from right under the nose of its owner? Literally.
