A college professor who witnesses the aftermath of a murder receives the gift of a typewriter…that seems to be typing of its own volition, and seems to be connected to the murder. A Noise Downstairs is a strange and insidious story, packed with psychological insights. Grace is called in and has to wade into a dark underworld of organized crime, sports betting, and much, much worse. It All Falls Down finds Nora searching for her own parents. Her quest takes her from her home in Vancouver to fleabag hotels and derelict buildings in Detroit, where her father, who later committed suicide, grew up.
The more Nora learns about the past the more questions she has: how did her father meet her mother? Could she still be alive? Its premise? When a conspiracy theorist more interested in views than in discoveries finally stumbles on an actual conspiracy, all hell breaks loose. This is like Indiana Jones for everyone who knew Jones was a complete a-hole but still wanted to watch the movies. His new novel, Safe Houses , is an elegant work of espionage fiction. Trust Me, her latest mystery, is a psychological and sinister story. A journalist mourning the death of her family years earlier becomes involved with the case of a woman accused of killing her own child, for an intriguing mashup of courtroom thriller and domestic suspense.
Set in Galway, this searing debut brings together procedural and psychological thriller for a fascinating portrait of small-town Ireland and its big city problems. Addiction, suicide, corruption, and desperation all play their part in this intricate, unsettling noir. Whatcha hiding, lake? The Last Time I Lied takes place at a summer camp, when a game of two truths and a lie turns dangerous, and years after, when a former camper returns to Camp Nightingale, desperate to discover its secrets.
As a British actress living without a green card in New York City, Claire Wright is compelled to work for a firm of divorce lawyers. The arrangement gets complicated when one of her clients is murdered, and the cops are convinced the husband did it. To ensnare the husband, though, Claire is going to have to give the performance of her life. Cuba before the fall has long been a subject of interest in our genre, and who could forget the kiss of death Michael gives to Fredo just before they exit the city?
Alex de Campi and Victor Santos, with their new graphic novel Bad Girls , both partake of this long tradition and turn it on its head. The gorgeous colors and clean lines of this graphic novel complement the stylish storytelling, for a noir comic not to be missed. Kellye Garrett won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel for her debut, Hollywood Homicide , and we expect her second installment in her Detective by Day series, featuring protagonist Dayna Andrews, to be just as charming. Her solitude is even further interrupted when one of her unwanted neighbors is murdered, and she investigates the tight-knit group and their many internecine struggles.
The latest is a weighty and thrilling look at father-son relationships, the allure and dangers of the natural world, the power of prophecy, jurisdictional battling, backwoods survival, and corruption at the highest levels of business and government. A private plane crashes on the remote Desolation Mountain in northern Minnesota, killing a prominent politician and setting off a search for answers and survivors.
While both Security and Blood Highway feature scrappy protagonists with comic book names denoting moxy and toughness, Security was a locked room mystery where Wohlsdorf spent the better part of the action playing with contained space, while Blood Highway takes its show on the road, as a young woman and her fugitive father go on a hell-raising road trip in search of some cash.
To even describe the plot of this thriller—a bit of a departure for espionage master Steinhauer—would be to give too much away. There is a secret, decentralized movement in America known as the Massive Brigade, which wants to overthrow the government, and one day people disappeared from their lives, leaving families, cell phones, and their identities in order to participate in the coming revolution. The leader of the brigade is Martin Bishop, a crusader for social justice, and as the book unfolds we learn much more about Bishop, his followers, and whether their dream of revolution becomes reality.
In The Reservoir Tapes , McGregor continues his reinvention of the familiar village disappearance story, introducing a number of new voices and perspectives to tell the story not only of the mystery, but of the town, in its full complexity and humanity. Suffice it to say, McGregor is one of the most profound authors at work today, and the Reservoir novels are a must-read for anyone who believes in the significance and potential of crime fiction. David Joy has become one of the strongest voices of Appalachian noir and of Southern fiction over the past couple of years, and his latest cements this reputation.
One of two books on this summer preview to feature hunting accidents, The Line That Held Us follows a hunter in pursuit of a buck that has long-evaded him, only to accidentally kill a man digging for ginseng in the woods instead. Rena Olsen works as a marriage therapist, which is why the relationships in her books are so realistically messed up. Her first psychological thriller, The Girl Before , begins with the slow untangling of an abusive relationship, while her followup, With You Always , takes us through how such a relationship comes to be, but the theme of each is the same—the harm of magical thinking and unquestioning love in relationships.
Her new novel takes place in a resort during a blizzard, and thus should be the perfect read to cool down as the summer stretches on and on, and that warning from Game of Thrones becomes more of a fervent prayer: Please, let winter come…. Solares has a high-octane style that will be familiar to readers of US thrillers, and he knows the terrain—cartel run depots in northern Mexico—as well as anyone around.
Bibliomysteries Volume 2 , edited by Otto Penzler. Each story involves the world of books, bookstores, rare editions, etc. Now, a new omnibus collection volume 2, no less brings these gems together between two covers. Penzler and his beloved bookshop are co-conspirators here at CrimeReads, so we may be partial, but this volume is a necessity for serious crime fans. Sounds like Sawdust In His Shoes, the story of a teenage circus equestrian who is placed in an orphanage, but runs away and is taken in by a farm family. He trains one of the plow horses, develops an new act, and eventually rejoins the circus.
The boy's father, a lion tamer, gets killed, and he has to go to an orphanage, from which he runs away. The boy is a solo equestrien and finds the perfect horse for him on the farm. He ends up back in the circus as a headliner. I vaguely remember reading something similar back in the early 80s. I think the title was " Sawdust in his Shoes ", and I thought the author was Edward Fenton , but I couldn't locate it online, so probably not.
Maybe this will help jar someone else's memory though.. Well, it's not common, but I did find one: L. London, W. Chambers, n. Illustrated by A. Talbot Smith. Decorative board with picture of four children sitting on a wall. Spine a little bit cracked. James Hurst, The Scarlet Ibis. I was absolutely haunted by this story It apparently made an impression on my uncle as well so the story must be at least from the 60s , who ended up naming his company after it.
What do you think?
This is the story. Its been a staple of high school literature books since at least the s. The brother's name is Doodle. The short story, one of my persnonal favorites, was in the 9th grade literature book used at Beaumont Junior High, Lexington, KY. The date - school year.
Been a while since I read it, but I'm pretty sure this is it. The young brother's name is Doodle. James Hurst, The Scarlet Ibis , Oh, thank you everyone for finding the title of this short story. I read it when I was in 8th or 9th grade and I remember reading it over and over because I was so moved and saddened by the story. This is now one of my favorite websites.
Keep up the great work! Dang, I just solved it myself! Think I'll try to get it on interlibrary loan, just to see if it's as powerful as I remember. I remember that my sixth grade self was really shaken by the raw portrayal of the guilt felt over the death as I remember itperhaps it was just a severe injury of a younger sibling. When a hearse goes by is a line from an Emily Dickinson poem.
Lovely imagery! Alvin H. Schwartz did a series of Scary Stories books. I believe it is the first one which contains the "worms" song, all the words, as well as notes on its origins. W57 The person is right about the Schwartz book as a source for the song. Schwartz also includes a good bibliography at the back, so the person can take a look at that too. I've had this book before. I believe it's called exactly that: Scat! No mistaking this one -- it's School in the Sky. It's been quite a while but I recall one of the students was a girl named Annie, and they had a cow in the plane with them!
I remember being fascinated with the description of strapping in the cow for takeoff! Dear Harriett, I am very happy I found your website! My search for a book was solved with the title " School in the Sky ". I can't figure out how to respond within the post so I am writing to you to say "thanks" to whoever solved it. I am very grateful.
I made this request on behalf of someone I met at a dinner. We started talking about children's books and she mentioned one about children traveling the world in a glass-bottomed airplane. She said she didn't know the title or author, but had searched everywhere for the book with the little information she had. I found your website later that night and now we have the answer. She will be thrilled. Thanks for helping people rediscover the books that shaped their worlds when they were young. Finding a book you once loved is like opening a door and stepping into the past for a while.
I have two young daughters and can't part with a single book of theirs, because I want that door to their early years to always be close by. Don't know whether this is the book you're looking for, but the author's name seemed close enough to Armstrong to be worth a shot. I remember the title now that I see it! Is this out of print, and if so can you find an inexpensive copy for me?
This might be one of Elisabeth Ogilvie's books She's still writing, but most of her young readers stuff would be vintage 40's or so. Maybe this will help! Masquerade At Sea House. McGraw Hill, Thanks for keeping this request in mind. Yes, you had sent the Ogilvie suggestion before and my mother says she has looked at Ogilvie's books and none of them is it. Someday, we'll find it!
I wonder if this could be the book by Eleanor Mercein Kelly. I don't know anything about her except that she won the O Henry award a couple of times for her short stories, and she was from Kentucky. She wrote from the 's through 's or so, and her stories were set all other the place. She did publish a book called Sea Change, in the early 30's, I think, but I've never read it. Thanks for the tip. My mom swears it's not this one, but I've put in an interlibrary loan request for a copy, just in case. I can't find a used one anywhere. Definitely not it. Worth, Kathryn , Sea change.
Cape, I researched this one thoroughly and the only book with that name that hasn't been eliminated previously is this one. A young woman girl? She has no memory of her name, and so they call her Marina. The Trevelyans have a son named Norman that she ends up falling in love with. In the denouement, she is discovered to be the granddaughter of old friends of the family, with an old locket that she wore when found being the proof. Her father was the black sheep of the family and was in Australia, sending his daughter back to his parents by ship. I realize that not all of the details are not an exact fit, but it does have the name, the red cover, a publication date early enough to be possible, and an unconventional for the times romance.
I check back from time to time, to see if anyone has found my mother's Sea Change. Here is a more complete list of books that I have tried. West, Jr. After checking dozens of books with this title, this turned out to be the one! I have it on interlibrary loan and would really like to get a copy for my mother.
If anyone can find a less expensive copy, I'd be very grateful. Library of Congress description: "John dreams he visits the kingdom of the sea horses where he rescues the king's favorite sea horse from the lair of an ancient spider". My mystery was indeed solved!

They find that they can all understand one another despite speakign different languages, and later learn that 2 other groups of people, one from a mediaeval-level civilisation and another from a stone-age civilisation are also there.

Aliens actually humans from Earths future kidnap airplane passengers and transport them to the future, where warfare and pollution have reduced the population to a mere handful. These airline passengers are needed to re-populate the Earth.
The twist is that all these passengers were about to die in a dreadful plane crash. The "snatch teams" from the future can look back in time, see these crashes, or sinking ships, or whatever, arrange for clones to be prepared to substitute for the living people, and then snatch away the otherwise-doomed passengers. Airplane abducted by aliens. Cooper's Seahorse in the Sky is indeed the one I was thinking of. Holling C. Holling, Seabird , Holling Clancy Holling, Seabird.

Nice hardback edition in edgeworn and spine frayed dust jacket. Moody, Ralph. Come On Seabiscuit. Illustrated by Robert Riger. Houghton Mifflin, Young American Book Club. Regarding SSea Child: Perhaps if the poster uses the keyword "selkie" she might have more success I'm the poster for query S Sea Child. I looked up selkies to no avail, so far. I suddenly remembered that the orphan was named Meave or possibly Maeve.
In doing a search on the net I discovered that Maeve is an Irish heroine and it occurs to me that "Da," what the young people called their father in the story, is also an Irish phenomenon. However, the book is most definitely NOT a folktale; it's set in the future.
The book also has to have been written before , because I read it in high school. I hope these scant details will spark a memory in your other readers. I keep thinking of Poul Anderson's The Merman's Children , but that's not a children's book, and has sex and violence as well as fantasy about the last remnants of Faerie being driven out by Christianity.
Maybe Eyas by Crawford Killian. New York: Bantam Books "Through the long centuries of humanity's twilight, the People of Longstrand lived in peace and harmony with nature, under the protection of their goddess from the sea. Then she put her mark upon a raven-haired child who would alter their destiny forever -- Eyas, nestling of the hawk. A fantasy adventure tale of a whale and respect for nature and family. Beautiful illustrations in brush and wash half tones by Diane Goode. Hughe lives all alone, nursing his grief at the loss of wife and family and quietly doing good.
Among his cares is that of wild creatures which have been damaged in the oil-polluted sea, and one day a strange creature indeed comes into his care, a girl from a distant country, speaking an unknown language. He nurses her back to health and eventually marries her. But the valley is tainted by Gwyn the daftie, retarded and malicious. Gwyn decides that the girl is a seal-woman and that she shall bring bad luck to the village. He plays on the superstitious fears of the villagers and builds up hostility towards her. The ugliness mounts and bursts out into arson and violence.
One day the man finds a grey seal pup "stranded on the sand bar, crying for its own. Vowing that he should never return to the sea, the foster-parents bring him up as their son. But when the fisherman is foundering offshore in a terrible storm, the boy rushes to his rescue, plunging back into the wide, enveloping sea. A born naturalist, intuitive and intelligent, Shian could swim long distances with the seals she had thin webs between her fingers and toes and she could talk with, and even tame, wild animals. From early childhood, Shian had been told by her grandparents that she was a sea-child born in a seal-cave and that one day a sea-prince would come and take her back to the kingdom beyond the horizon whence she had come.
Baird, Alison, The Hidden World, darn it! If it weren't for the publication date this would be almost perfect: "Maeve O'Connor is 15, wants to be an actress, is not particularly pretty, and is a perennial outsider at her school near Toronto. To make matters worse her father has just lost his job, her rebellious older brother is driving her parents apart, and to top it all off they have sent her off to rural Newfoundland to spend the summer with her aunt and uncle.
Through a talisman she discovers in a bureau -- and her own fey nature -- she begins shifting back and forth between Newfoundland and a parallel universe of Celtic myth, Annwn, which her grandmother had described in a children's novel. She is befriended by Thomas, an Annwn-born boy of her age and his community, but terror soon grips the land as the evil sea-dwelling Fomori, bent on subjugating Annwn drive forth Thomas' people from their homes. When things are looking bleakest for her friends, she and Thomas mount a bold bid to enlist the aid of the fairy folk.
If Maeve's grandmother's book were real, maybe that would be the answer. McKillip , The Changeling Sea, s. I don't think this is your book, but The Changeling Sea by Patricia Mckillip has a very similar plot, with the genders reversed. Angler's daughter finds a young man on the beach, who looks very much like the son of the ruling family, Prince Kir, who is obsessed with the sea..
A Sea Dragon is threatening the land. Laurence Yep, Seademons. Maeve is a human child raised by aliens and then returned to a human-setted world, where she can never truly fit in. The paperback has a gorgeous cover by Frank Frazetta. The book must not have done well, he never wrote anything else like it, but I loved it.
Thank you! I know it's been ages since I submitted this query. Seademons by Lawrence Yep is the answer. My thanks to everyone who tried to help me. I had it in the seventies, and I have never seen it since Dean Walley, Seals on Wheels , This book was published by the Hallmark card company.

I seem to remember the cover was mostly green and I'm pretty sure I got it from one of those Scholastic order forms. Now that someone's posted the title, I can tell you that Searching for Shona is definitely the book I was thinking of when I posted my clue. I was thinking that one of the girls was named Sasha. Hope this is it! It's definitely Searching for Shona.

The Witch Family by Eleanor Estes? From various descriptions of the book it seems that the village is called Platzenhausen, the villagers are unpleasant, the young witch, Vivian, befriends a young boy named Andrew, and the villagers try to get rid of the witch because she plays tricks on them. I haven't read the book, so I can't guarantee this is the right one, but it certainly sounds like it. From all the descriptions I could find of this book, the young witch is named Vivian, the boy she befriends is Andrew, the village is Platzenhausen, the villagers are known to be unpleasant and supposedly the young witch plays tricks on the villagers and does something to shock them into getting rid of the witch.
None of the descriptions said anything about a talking bear, but it might be worth investigating. The young boy is Andrew Papenhausen, the talking bear is Stanwix, and the young witch is Vivian. Vivian's nose is so cold that when she picks flowers and sniffs them, they instantly wither and die. But she is NOT gentle and goodshe plays irksome, frightening pranks. Despite her proclivity for cruel tricks, Andy befriends Vivian.
The villagers of Platzenhausen are a heartless and hateful lot who had helped each other only once long ago, when they united to combat a witch that had plagued them. That witch was banished when she accidentally caused the death of a child. The mayor forgot his promise, and now the second witch has come because the villagers are unneighborly and the first witch's life is hanging by a thread. Once again, the villagers band together, but they kill the naive and loveable Stanwix, who is gently trying to reason with them.
Agatha Christie: genius or hack? Crime writers pass judgment and pick favourites
Since Vivian has caused the death of an innocent soul, she loses her power and must leave. She asks Andy to remember her always, and to remind the villagers as well. Andy grows up, becomes the mayor, and keeps his promise, and the villagers remain kind and cooperative. He watches constantly for the smoke to return to the chimney of the witch's house, but it never does. Out of print, not hard to find, not terribly expensive. The book I originally read was orange and hardback, with line drawings in orange, yellow, black and white.
I believe this is the book you are looking for, except it is young Lucinda who finds Felina on her window sill Halloween night - not a boy. Felina is forced to live the next year with Lucinda's family and then has to decide if she wants to remain a witch or become a real girl. Any chance the witch was also a boy? Pollution is making it hard to breathe, buckles tarnish, and all sorts of unpleasant things are happening.
And the witches are thinking of leaving the Earth to live on a cleaner planet! Witchard a young witchling must find a satisfactory solution to the pollution problem. Along the way, he meets some Earthling boys who become his friends and teach him to play touch football. It was a large hardback book, but not precisely a picture book OR a chapter book - it took me awhile to read. The drawings were black and white line drawings, but with yellow and orange accent colors here and there.

The witch was definitely a girl, but there was a boy who befriended her. She came from nowhere, and disappears, too, if I remember correctly.
