Murder in Chianti Book Summary :

Set in the heart of Tuscan wine country, Camilla Trinchieri's new mystery introduces Nico Doyle, a former NYPD homicide detective who's just looking for space to grieve when he finds himself pulled into a local murder investigation. Mourning the loss of his wife, Rita, former NYPD homicide detective Nico Doyle moves to her hometown of Gravigna in the winesoaked region of Chianti. Half Italian and half Irish, Nico finds himself able to get by in the region with the help of Rita’s relatives, but he still feels alone and out of place. He isn’t sure if it’s peace he’s seeking, but it isn’t what he finds. Early one morning, he hears a gunshot and a dog's cries near his cabin and walks out to discover a dead body in the woods, flashily dressed in gold tennis shoes. When the police arrive, Nico hastily adopts the fluffy white dog as his own and wants nothing more to do with the murder. But Salvatore Perillo, the local maresciallo, discovers Nico's professional background and enlists him to help with the case. It turns out more than one person in this idyllic corner of Italy knew the victim, and with a very small pool of suspects, including his own in-laws, Nico must dig up Gravigna’s every last painful secret to get to the truth.

The Trouble with a Hot Summer Book Summary :

A vacation in fabulous East Hampton turns ugly after advertising legend Bud Warren asks Simona to investigate his wife's supposed suicide, which he is convinced was murder. A few hours later someone burns down Bud's waterfront home. Then Bud is found drowned. Was Bud's hunch about his wife, Polly, the reason for his murder? Or was the reason hidden in his burned-down house? Was Polly in fact murdered? There are enough questions to keep Simona and her new sleuthing partner, Dmitri K, running back and forth from the Hamptons to Manhattan. And too many suspects: Laurie Warren, who couldn't stand her mother. Steve, local bayman, who feels the Warrens cheated him out of valuable land. Bud's partner, Lester, who wanted control of the agency. Jim, restaurant owner, who is seducing Simona. Dodo, local eccentric, who spews regret and Lewis Carroll quotes, and Rebecca, famous painter, who knew Bud from another time. As fire rages across the Hamptons and Simona zeroes in on the murderer, she has to watch her step to stay alive. A recipe for Cool Pasta is included. "The mix of breezy vacation fun and somber matters of death, passion and art provides the tension needed to make this a sultry summer read." -Publishers Weekly "The Trouble with a Hot Summer is even better that Simona's last outing. This is a brisk mystery and a fun read, and Camilla Crespi is one hot writer." -Richard Centner, Mostly Murder "As is true with the earlier novels, Simona is fun to read about as are the different and interesting settings for each of her stories. For well-knit stories told in a humorous vein Crespi is right up there with today's best." -Don Sandstrom, Mystery News "Good beach fare, especially if you're headed to bonacker country." -GraceAnne A.

The Echo Killing Book Summary :

When a murder echoing a fifteen-year-old cold case rocks the Southern town of Savannah, crime reporter Harper McClain risks everything to find the identity of this calculated killer in Christi Daugherty's new novel The Echo Killing. A city of antebellum architecture, picturesque parks, and cobblestone streets, Savannah moves at a graceful pace. But for Harper McClain, the timeless beauty and culture that distinguishes her home’s Southern heritage vanishes during the dark and dangerous nights. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Not even finding her mother brutally murdered in their home when she was twelve has made her love Savannah any less. Her mother’s killer was never found, and that unsolved murder left Harper with an obsession that drove her to become one of the best crime reporters in the state of Georgia. She spends her nights with the police, searching for criminals. Her latest investigation takes her to the scene of a homicide where the details are hauntingly familiar: a young girl being led from the scene by a detective, a female victim naked and stabbed multiple times in the kitchen, and no traces of any evidence pointing towards a suspect. Harper has seen all of this before in her own life. The similarities between the murder of Marie Whitney and her own mother’s death lead her to believe they’re both victims of the same killer. At last, she has the chance to find the murderer who’s eluded justice for fifteen years and make sure another little girl isn’t forever haunted by a senseless act of violence—even if it puts Harper in the killer’s cross-hairs...

The follow-up to Murder in Chianti finds ex-NYPD detective Nico Doyle recruited by Italian authorities to investigate the murder of a prominent wine critic. One year after moving to his late wife's Tuscan hometown of Gravigna, Nico Doyle has fully settled into life there, seeing friends in the course of daily errands and helping to serve and test recipes at his in-laws' restaurant. But the town is shaken by the arrival of wine critic Michele Mantelli in his flashy Jaguar. Mantelli holds his influential culinary magazine and blog over Gravigna's vintners and restaurateurs (and, to Maresciallo Perillo's dismay, the traffic laws). He has either impressed or ticked off most of ravigna's residents--but most of all Nico's landlord, Aldo Ferri, whose vineyard Mantelli seems intent on ruining. Mantelli's lavish, larger-than-life, and often vindictive personality has made him many enemies, and when he is poisoned, Perillo has a headache of a high-profile murder on his hands--and once again turns to Nico for help.

Deadly Diamonds Book Summary :

What do Boston, Dublin, and Sierra Leone have in common? The movement of blood diamonds at enormous profit but grave human expense: mafia killings in Boston and Ireland and child enslavement and murder in Sierra Leone. And who is ensnared in the middle of all of this - Michael Knight and Lex Devlin. Can they stop the enormously profitable trade of these tainted jewels? They must come between the Italian mafia in North Boston and the Irish mafia in South Boston including some remnants of the IRA in Ireland. They must also pit themselves against the enslaved and deadly child-army in Sierra Leone, who smuggle these diamonds into the mainstream for cash to buy weapons and drugs. At great personal risk, Knight and Devlin struggle to find a solution that satisfies this disparate combination of characters and, hopefully, dampens the diamond flow.
