In the chilling second installment of the High Coast Series, residents of the small town of Malmberget are being relocated as the mine that built the town swallows it street by street into a huge pit they call “the hole.” When two workers hear a sound coming from a basement, they find a petrified man curled up in a corner. At the same time, in Ådalen, 700 kilometers away, police officer Eira Sjödin is investigating the disappearance of a man. Along with her colleagues, Eira searches his apartment, contacts his friends and family, and questions local hospitals, but the man is untraceable. She understands the pain of loss, as her own mother has dementia and, as a result, loses herself in an affair with GG—who’s twenty years her senior and her boss…until he goes missing and Eira is at the mercy of a mysterious perpetrator and an undeniable love.
FINLAY DONOVAN JUMPS THE GUN
BY ELLE COSIMANO
Beloved heroine Finlay Donovan is back. And now she’s dealing with dating and diapers as a single mom (and author). Of course she’s still dodging bullets too. After she and her nanny/partner-in-crime Vero mistakenly destroyed a luxury car that they “borrowed” while saving Finlay’s ex-husband’s life, the Russian mob got her out of debt. But now she owes them big time. Mob boss Feliks tasks Finlay with finding a contract killer before the police do. Only one small issue: The killer might be an officer. Fortunately, hot cop Nick has started a citizen’s police academy and pressure from both Finlay’s looming book deadline and Feliks convinces her and Vero to dive in. Through firearm training and forensic classes, Finlay and Vero have the smokescreen to track down the real criminal and evade the mob’s grasp.
