A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER... “A ripping good yarn … an exciting tale.” —Publishers Weekly “...
an imaginative plot, some rousing action, a black-hearted villain, a cute kid, some gently ironic humor, and a heroine who's appealing without being perfect.” —Booklist As intricate as a fisherman’s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delights—family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasure… and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, who’s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutally—and mysteriously—injured. Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now he’s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabel’s aunt seems to be getting better (but before she’s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her aunt’s death to another. But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan. WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of Laura Lippman, Kate Atkinson, intelligent cozies like those by G.M. Malliett, Elizabeth Zelvin, and Gillian Roberts, British puzzlemeisters like the great Dorothy L. Sayers herself, all BBC mysteries, and of course, Michaela Thompson’s own Hurricane Season.

When Kenneth Earl advertises for someone to help him catalogue his vast collection of music, Maggie -- the final candidate -- is his last hope. What he doesn't know, however, is that this isn't the first time that Maggie has been to Earl House, and it's no coincidence that she applied for the job. As a child, Maggie and her mother lived near the river that runs past the house. Maggie's memories of that time are patchy, like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle that don't quite fit: she remembers Kenneth's son, William; a boat; a dog; she remembers children singing, and being alone, afraid. She remembers -- afterwards -- returning home, mute, refusing to speak. For her, going back to Earl House as an adult offers the chance to fill in the gaps and finally, perhaps, lay the ghosts of her childhood: for her, as for William, this is her chance to reclaim her past. Written in clear, ringing prose, "The Song House" is about language and music, memory and place, about who we are and the narratives we weave about the events of our lives. Beautiful and haunting, its cadences, themes and characters will resonate with the reader long after the final page is finished. 'An extraordinarily instinctive writer with a delicate feel for language' "Observer"
Una abuela que emigró de Kiev; un abuelo vegetariano, ateo y socialista; un padre que murió joven; una madre que remarca los sacrificios de su vida. En el centro de la escena, una niña que observa y escucha su entorno con agudeza y picardía. Fuera del círculo familiar, las amigas de la cuadra, la escuela, el almacén, el conservatorio de música, la iglesia, y el telón de fondo de los gobiernos conservadores y el ascenso de Perón. Libro sobre los inicios y a la vez inicio en sí mismo, Músicos y relojeros inauguró la obra de Alicia Steimberg en 1971 y se ha conv ertido en una fresca y ya clásica novela de la literatura argentina, que retrata con irreverencia y humor la infancia y la vida fam iliar. La crítica ha dicho... « "Un agudo relato parcialmente autobiográfico sobre la niñez de una chica judía en la Argentina de la década de 1940. Esta novela -una joya- lleva la marca de la voz distintiva de Steimberg, ingeniosamente descarada, irónica pero cálida, precoz y a la vez con conocimiento de mundo.» Publisher's Weekly
