New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin “delivers the goods” (Publishers Weekly) again with this gripping, “spellbinding” (Fresh Fiction) thriller full of twists and turns—the twelfth in her bestselling Tracers series. When crime scene investigator Brooke Porter arrives at the home of a murdered woman, the only thing more shocking than the carnage is the evidence that someone escaped the scene. But where is this witness now? A thorough search of the area yields more questions than answers, and before Brooke even packs up her evidence kit, she’s made it her goal to find the witness and get them out of harm’s way. Homicide detective Sean Byrne has seen his share of bloody crime scenes, but this one is particularly disturbing, especially because Brooke Porter is smack in the middle of it. Sean has had his eye on the sexy CSI for months, and he’s determined to help her with her current case—even if it means putting his attraction on hold so he and Brooke can track down a murderer. But as the investigation—and their relationship—heats up, Sean realizes that keeping his work and his personal life separate is more complicated than he ever imagined; especially when the killer sets his sights on Brooke. With Griffin’s signature “fully fleshed characters, dry humor, and tight plotting” (Publishers Weekly), Touch of Red demonstrates why she is one of the most acclaimed and popular authors of sexy thrillers today.

Pure Evil can remain hidden and unseen - a Dash of Red is the account of a seemingly normal man living in Brooklyn, New York who is anything but normal. As he goes about his daily activities we learn that he refers to himself as the Gray Man and values his ability to blend into a crowd and go unnoticed. He also hints that this trait has allowed him to escape justice in the past. He wanders into a midtown bar and finds that he is not as invisible as he had thought as he becomes part of an after-work crowd in 1990's New York City. Here he gets involved with Violetta, the most beautiful woman in this little clique. Although he now has a sexual relationship with this desirable woman, he fantasizes about Michelle, the bar's druggie waitress whom he is convinced is flirting with him and slyly suggesting her desire for rough sex. He is furthermore convinced that Violetta is a witch and begins his studies on witchcraft. Along the way his horrendous appetites are sated as he participates in every manner of evil. We are introduced to members of the bar crowd, among them is a fellow with a filthy mouth, several potheads, a dismissive bartender, and a charismatic fellow that they refer to as the Capo. In short time one of the group is found bludgeoned to death and suspicion is cast upon the bar's patrons. Meanwhile Michelle's drug problems worsen and she enters rehab. Once she returns John has wonderful plans for his future with Michelle and is more convinced than ever that she is flirting with him. He will settle down with the girl of his dreams and abandon his old habits. No longer will he kill, mutilate, cannibalize and the like. First though, he wants one final adventure – one last feast of killing where he can destroy three lives before riding off into the sunset with his darling Michelle. This offbeat urban story questions how well do we really know our casual acquaintances and will appeal to readers of, horror, black humor, crime and suspense.

Director Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy—Blue (1993), White (1993), and Red (1994)—is one of the great achievements of European film. A meditation on liberty, equality, and fraternity, these three films marked the culmination of the director's career, as well as the zenith of one of the most important creative collaborations in 20th-century cinema-between Kieslowski, scriptwriter Krzysztof Piesiewicz, and composer Zbigniew Preisner. Thanks to their close working relationship, music for the Three Colors trilogy achieves both a focal narrative and philosophical function. At times, Preisner's music advances the narrative independently of the films' other codes; at other times, it creates a metaphorical space into which the audience is invited in order to read for "deeper" messages. As the first major scholarly treatment of Preisner's music, Nicholas Reyland's Zbigniew Preisner's Three Colors Trilogy: A Film Score Guide fills an important void in film score scholarship. In this guide, Reyland analyzes the historical context of the film scores, the life of the composer, the hermeneutic and narrative role of the music within the film, and the musical scoring techniques used for the trilogy. This volume also draws on an interplay of established "classic" approaches to analyzing film music and more recent approaches in the exploration of its themes and readings. In addition, the composer's willingness to be interviewed by Reyland enhances the musicological scholarship of this book, giving the reader privileged access into the process of scoring. A significant contribution to both film studies and musicological literature, this book celebrates one of the great cinematic achievements of the last few decades.
