New Releases For The Week Of July 31st, 2022–Part 4

An ancient legend tells of a pirate ship carrying a fortune in Spanish doubloons that once sank off the coast of Shipwreck Point.

While the residents of the town, including lawyer Titus Strong, mostly think it’s just a story, every once in a while the legend surfaces in some way or other, bringing hordes of outside treasure hunters who are sure they’ll be the one to find the gold. Most of these soon leave after discovering it’s not such an easy task.

Some who seek the booty are more persistent. One of these is Addison Slater, a common laborer and acquaintance of Titus’s, who persists in digging into historical records in his dogged search for clues.

Now an academic professor has stirred up the story again with the publication of a new book and a series of lectures, complete with magic lantern slides, given at a luxury hotel. All based on Slater’s research.

When the professor is found murdered, Slater is the primary suspect. But Titus doesn’t believe he did it.

Can Titus Strong prove him innocent?

And will the pirate treasure finally be found? (Amazon)

Ah, it’s an academic conference, with all the egos, the scandals, the terrifyingly petty squabbles on display. Well….perhaps not so petty. Professor Andrew Basnett has returned to his old university for a meeting of the Botanical Association, an event that should be entirely benign, except that he can’t help being just a little curious about Carl Judd, an artist who was murdered here just two years ago. And, of course, about Stephen Sharland, who’s in prison for the murder, only no one thinks he did it, not even Judd’s widow. The rumors are flying, the tongues are wagging, and then the only witness to the crime? He gets murdered, too! It’s all too exciting—no, sorry, too terrible, too terrible for words. Thank heavens Andrew Basnett is on hand to weed out the gossip and dig for the taproot of truth. (Amazon)

Andrew Basnett does not have very good luck with Christmas. Most recently, visiting friends in Australia for the festive season, he wound up with a front-row seat to some rather extraordinary family strife. And this time around, his plans for a peaceful, English-village holiday get blown up when…well, when his hosts’ neighbor, Sir Lucas Dearden, gets blown up. A bomb, you know. This is England, it’s the 1980s: everyone shudders, blames the IRA, and moves on. Except, of course, for Andrew Basnett. Who knew, he wonders, about Sir Lucas’s last-minute change of plans? Why had Sir Lucas meticulously removed one page of the (rather stunningly dull) memoir he was writing? And could the bomb possibly have been intended for someone else? (Amazon)
