In the Shadow of Power by Viveca Sten

What do the new arrivals on Sandhamn Island have to fear? Their own secrets—in this gripping novel of suspense by the bestselling author of In the Heat of the Moment.

The new summer house on Sandhamn Island is an architectural dream for its owner, Carsten Jonsson. It’s a nightmare for the locals. The venture capitalist has flouted local traditions, property lines, and the natural beauty of the coastline. He’s also too wealthy and arrogant to heed the anonymous warnings to leave. The threats escalate when his guest lodge is burned to the ground and an unidentifiable corpse is found in the charred ruins.

Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson isn’t sure if it’s murder or a tragic accident. Until his friend attorney Nora Linde is drawn into the investigation. Nora’s emotional investment in Carsten’s fragile and fearful wife, Celia, is yielding a new level of suspicion: that the Jonssons are hiding more than anyone can imagine. Now Thomas and Nora must sift through the ashes of a puzzling crime and step into the shadows of a powerful family, whose deadly secrets are coming to light on Sandhamn.

Beyond the Horizon by Ella Carey

From the author of The House by the Lake comes a powerful novel of friendship during World War II, fighting for the truth, and making peace with the past.

At the height of World War II, Eva Scott’s dream comes true. Accepted into the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), she leaves balmy California and the man she loves for grueling training in Texas, ultimately landing at formidable Camp Davis in North Carolina.

Vastly outnumbered by men and amid contempt, discrimination, and sabotage, Eva and her closest friends, the unconventional Nina and straightlaced Helena, remain loyal to their mission and to each other. They stay focused on the horizon, determined to prove themselves capable women pilots. Until a fatal mission sends Eva’s dream crashing to earth . . .

Now, decades later, is it possible to discover the truth about the night that changed her life? Is there any hope she’ll recover all that she’s lost? When Eva finds herself embroiled in the fight to get military recognition for the WASP, she’s forced to confront the past, and to make a decision that could forever change her future.

Thrilling and inspiring, Beyond the Horizon is a portrait of love, friendship, and valor in a time of war—and a tribute to the brave women who risked their lives for their country.

Scourge of the Silver Wings by Juho Pohjalainen

I have a few extra printed copies of Scourge of the Silver Wings, a true underdog fantasy story, lying around. Do you want one? You can read it at night under your covers, with a flashlight!

A small and twitchy stranger arrives to a naval trading port. He keeps to himself at first, but can (when pushed) spin an impressive and likely untrue tale of fantastic and bizarre naval voyages. Telling this tale in a bar corner should make for a reasonable break, and a break is what he now wants.

But the town is a stage for an ideological war about to turn hot, and both sides would much like Peal to join their ranks and help them achieve total dominion over the region. They've seen through Peal's innocent disguise, just enough to realize he is more than he seems and would make for an asset... yet not nearly enough to understand that this might be a very, very bad idea.

When his hand is forced, Peal will make the survivors regret their impertinence - but he may also accumulate a few fresh regrets of his own. Far more is at stake here than material wealth or glory.

Participate in the giveaway to see how he fares - you've nothing at all to lose!
