Meet the Clanswomen... International bestselling authors Jenny Colgan, Isla Dewar, and Muriel Gray lead off this dazzling collection of stories by popular and rising Scottish women authors. A sometimes wild, sometimes poignant romp through the lives of Scotswomen, Scottish Girls About Town revels in the universal hilarity and strife of being a girl! They're looking for something moor. In Jenny Colgan's "The Fringes," a hapless heroine heads to the Edinburgh "Fringe" -- a massive theatrical and musical festival -- for a night of her own disastrous drama. Isla Dewar offers up "In the Garden of Mrs. Pink," one woman's look back at her girlhood and the life lessons she learned from an eccentric neighbor. In Muriel Gray's "School-Gate Mums," a single mother with killer instincts settles the score with one of the mothers at her son's school. Whether they're racing their flatmates in a weight-loss contest, reconnecting with long-lost friends, or grappling with the men in their lives, these daughters of Scotland prove that no one can top their audacious spirit and Highland charm.
In a remote ski resort high in the Canadian Rockies, something is going terribly wrong. A young police officer is found murdered and strangely mutilated. A truck driver is found frozen solid in his truck, doors and windows closed, with snow drifts inside the cab. A hotshot skier is found dead and bloody in deep snow, with no human footprints anywhere near the body. Fear begins to spread that a bizarre and ingenious serial killer is on the loose. But for Sam Hunt, who turned his back on his Indian roots to live in white society, the fear is especially strong: He's been having blackouts, waking up miles away from where he started, with blood on his face and absolutely no recollection of what he's done. The Trickster is relentless and terrifying suspense -the most talked-about debut thriller of the year, by a writer of unique and startling gifts.
