When one of Cassie Swann's bridge partners, Naomi Harris, dies from an overdose, she is shocked but not suspicious. But things look rather different with the appearance of a young woman claiming to be Naomi's daughter, given up for adoption twenty years earlier, and a secret lover who insists that Naomi was murdered by her husband. Guiltily aware that she was not a good friend to Naomi while she was alive, Cassie decides to try to find the truth - and soon discovers that while Naomi had little reason to kill herself, there are several reasons why someone might have wanted her dead. Complications in her own life don't make things any easier. Torn between DS Paul Walsh and the persistent attentions of Charlie Quartermain, she suddenly finds a menacing figure is stalking her. As she closes in on the mystery of Naomi's troubled life, she is about to discover some very dangerous secrets.

An Encyclopedia of Leading Women Characters in Mystery Fiction, Volume 3: (1990-1999)Like other fictional characters, female sleuths may live in the past or the future. They may represent current times with some level of reality or shape their settings to suit an agenda. There are audiences for both realism and escapism in the mystery novel. It is interesting, however, to compare the fictional world of the mystery sleuth with the world in which readers live. Of course, mystery readers do not share one simplistic world. They live in urban, suburban, and rural areas, as do the female heroines in the books they read. They may choose a book because it has a familiar background or because it takes them to places they long to visit. Readers may be rich or poor; young or old; conservative or liberal. So are the heroines. What incredible choices there are today in mystery series! This three-volume encyclopedia of women characters in the mystery novel is like a gigantic menu. Like a menu, the descriptions of the items that are provided are subjective. Volume 3 of Mystery Women as currently updated adds an additional 42 sleuths to the 500 plus who were covered in the initial Volume 3. These are more recently discovered sleuths who were introduced during the period from January 1, 1990 to December 31, 1999. This more than doubles the number of sleuths introduced in the 1980s (298 of whom were covered in Volume 2) and easily exceeded the 347 series (and some outstanding individuals) described in Volume 1, which covered a 130-year period from 1860-1979. It also includes updates on those individuals covered in the first edition; changes in status, short reviews of books published since the first edition through December 31, 2008.

Times are looking lean for Cassie Swann. With the bridge supplies business in a slump and no new sources of income on the horizon, she's shocked to find herself cadging drinks off OAPs. But her own problems are forgotten when one of her bridge group, Lolly Haden White, starts seeming very distressed. Are her lapses of memory and dark moods simply a consequence of growing old, or is there something more sinister behind her sudden decline? Realizing that she knows next to nothing about Lolly's history, Cassie decides to do a little investigating, only to find that Lolly has done a remarkable job of covering up the details of her early life - in particular the time she spent in Africa as a young woman. Cassie begins to suspect that some long-suppressed secret from those days has come back to haunt Lolly - and when a brutal murder shocks the village, Cassie is convinced that the evil Lolly long ago battled against has to be confronted again.

In the context of a systematic overview of the possibilities of applying narratological concepts to a study of TV series, ten case studies are explored in depth, demonstrating how series such as 24, Buffy, Twin Peaks, Star Trek, Blackadder, and Sex and the City make use of innovative audiovisual means of storytelling. Transgressing the traditional confines of narrative theory, the chapter authors address the question of how form, content, and function intersect in these series.
