Reykjavík, August 1941. When a travelling salesman is found murdered in a basement flat, killed by a bullet from a Colt .45, the police initially suspect a member of the Allied occupation force. The British are in the process of handing over to the Americans and the streets are crawling with servicemen whose relations with the local women are a major cause for concern. Flóvent, Reykjavík’s sole detective, is joined by the young military policeman Thorson. Their investigation focuses on a family of German residents, the retired doctor Rudolf Lunden and his estranged son Felix, who is on the run, suspected of being a spy. Flóvent and Thorson race to solve the case and to stay ahead of US counter-intelligence, amid rumours of a possible visit by Churchill. As evidence emerges of dubious experiments carried out on Icelandic schoolboys in the 1930s,Thorson becomes increasingly suspicious of the role played by the murdered man’s former girlfriend, Vera, and her British soldier lover.

Wearing an old trenchcoat and his indispensable felt hat, the 20-year-old J�r�me tries to look the part of a seasoned sleuth. By day he translates detective novels and fantasizes about being one. By night he's enrolled in Professor Maison's correspondence course for would-be private eyes. His girlfriend, Babette, is a flight attendant who brings him recordings for his collection of police sirens from around the world. And then, his first "case": In the past two months, fifteen people in Paris have been killed by poisoned darts. All that witnesses saw was a feathered shadow and a blowgun.

2008 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER Peter Matthiessen’s great American epic–Killing Mister Watson, Lost Man’s River, and Bone by Bone–was conceived as one vast mysterious novel, but because of its length it was originally broken up into three books. In this bold new rendering, Matthiessen has cut nearly a third of the overall text and collapsed the time frame while deepening the insights and motivations of his characters with brilliant rewriting throughout. In Shadow Country, he has marvelously distilled a monumental work, realizing his original vision.

On Friday the Thirteenth of October 1995, a sexual predator prowled the quiet city streets of Abbotsford, British Columbia. Two teenage girls were viciously attacked with a baseball bat. Tanya Smith died at the hands of their attacker, and Misty Cockerill only just survived, as she was driven by incredible fighting instinct and the will to live. Now the only living eyewitness, Misty's life would remain in imminent danger. Through the Valley of the Shadow, by Inspector Rod Gehl, is the true story of the manhunt for the Abbotsford Killer. As police investigated this crime, the old adage 'fact is stranger than fiction' proved true many times over. For seven months Inspector Gehl and members of the Homicide Task Force found themselves drawn into a bizarre game of cat and mouse as the Abbotsford Killer made taunting phone calls, sent messages bragging about his actions, and threatened to kill again. Would they catch the killer before he struck again? For the police, it was like chasing a shadow; for the communities involved, the Abbotsford Killer was truly the shadow of death.

But when Karen, the friend who found her body, approaches Erlendur and gives him the tape of a séance that María had attended, his curiosity is aroused. Driven by a need to find answers, Erlendur embarks on an unofficial investigation to find out why the woman’s life ended in such an abrupt and tragic manner. At the same time, he is haunted by the unresolved cases of two young people who went missing thirty years before, and, inevitably, his discoveries raise ghosts from his own past.
