Edinburgh's most famed detective duo—"Nine-Nails" McGray and Inspector Ian Frey—face their most metaphysical mystery yet, as they investigate a series of crimes surrounding the miraculous waters in the remote Loch Maree. A mysterious woman pleads for the help of Inspectors Frey and "Nine-Nails" McGray. Her son, illegitimate scion of the Koloman family, has received an anonymous death threat—right after learning he is to inherit the best part of a vast wine-producing estate. In exchange for their protection, she offers McGray the ultimate cure for his sister, who has been locked in an insane asylum after brutally murdering their parents: the miraculous waters that spring from a small island in the remote Loch Maree. The island has been a sacred burial ground since the time of the druids, but the legends around it will turn out to be much darker than McGray could have expected. Murder and increasingly bizarre happenings will intermingle throughout this trip to the Highlands, before Frey and McGray learn a terrible truth.

Rose is a mind-reading mercenary hired to track down and kill the perpetrators of unsolved murders in and around Edinburgh. Vampires and werewolves stalk the city's pubs and clubs, taking victims and getting away with it. After all, they can eat the evidence.

She's the last resort for the desperate, but the work is making her more of a threat to the city than the monsters she hunts. This time she’s battling a shadowy organization named Carnalis and the ancient evil it has awakened – a vast power bent on destroying the city that gave it birth. Rose and her supernatural allies are the last line of defense... and time is running out.

“A sharp analysis of the quest for unreal critters―cryptids, as they are called―and the people who pursue them . . . entertaining and thoroughly documented.” —The Wall Street Journal Throughout our history, humans have been captivated by mythic beasts and legendary creatures. Tales of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness monster are part of our collective experience. Now comes a book from two dedicated investigators that explores and elucidates the fascinating world of cryptozoology. Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero have written an entertaining, educational, and definitive text on cryptids, presenting the arguments both for and against their existence and systematically challenging the pseudoscience that perpetuates their myths. After examining the nature of science and pseudoscience and their relation to cryptozoology, Loxton and Prothero take on Bigfoot; the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and its cross-cultural incarnations; the Loch Ness monster and its highly publicized sightings; the evolution of the Great Sea Serpent; and Mokele Mbembe, or the Congo dinosaur. They conclude with an analysis of the psychology behind the persistent belief in paranormal phenomena, identifying the major players in cryptozoology, discussing the character of its subculture, and considering the challenge it poses to clear and critical thinking in our increasingly complex world. “As valuable for its analysis of the hunted as it is for the light it shines on the still-hopeful hunters.” —Publishers Weekly “Highly recommended for readers looking for scientific but accessible evaluations of the existence of five notable cryptids that have captured our imaginations.” —Library Journal (starred review)

Alone, in February, in New England, ICU nurse Ginny Forbes must find a way to get a fugitive across the U.S.-Canadian border or forfeit her career, her freedom, and maybe even her life in this captivating third novel by Maggie Foster. Book Three in the Loch Lonach Mystery Series When one of the Homesteaders takes revenge on the drunk driver who killed his family, he hides the body in the Viking ship set to be burned during the annual Up-Helly-Aa, expecting the evidence to disappear into the depths of Loch Lonach. Mother Nature decrees otherwise. Brought before the clan to answer for his crimes, Charles Monroe chooses exile, and the Laird assigns Ginny Forbes and Jim Mackenzie to escort him across the Canadian border. The trip does not go well. Hijacked by an escaped convict, wrecked on the highway in a snow storm, and menaced by hungry gray wolves (among other things), Jim and Ginny find their paths repeatedly barred. When the Dallas detective assigned to the case catches up with Jim, Ginny must struggle on alone. Unable to escape the tightening police cordon, Charlie sacrifices himself to save a boy in danger of drowning in the icy depths of the Bay of Fundy, leaving Ginny to face the authorities. A cross-country thriller with plenty of twists and turns and a climax that challenges the disconnect between law and justice. Read what people are saying about Viking Vengeance “What a ride!
