A series of ritualistic murders committed across the United States draws Lucas Davenport into an unimaginable conspiracy of revenge in this ´´classic´´(Boston Globe) thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. A slumlord butchered in Minneapolis...A rising political star executed in Manhattan...A judge slashed to death in Oklahoma City... Each victim has a history of bad behavior, but the only thing the killings have in common is the murder weapon-a Native American ceremonial knife-and a trail of blood that leads to an embodiment of evil known only as Shadow Love. Recruited to be the lethal hand of a terrorist campaign, Shadow Love has his own bloody agenda, one he will do anything to achieve. Enlisted to find him are Minneapolis police lieutenant Lucas Davenport and New York City police officer Lily Rothenburg. But despite the countrywide carnage they needn´t look far. Because Shadow Love is right behind them.

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.

We Cast a Shadow

A ´´brilliant and devastating´´ (Booklist) debut for fans of Get Out and Paul Beatty´s The Sellout, about a father´s obsessive quest to protect his son-even if it means turning him white ´´An incisive and necessary work of satire.´´-Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist ´´You can be beautiful, even more beautiful than before.´´ This is the seductive promise of Dr. Nzinga´s clinic, where anyone can get their lips thinned, their skin bleached, and their nose narrowed. A complete demelanization will liberate you from the confines of being born in a black body-if you can afford it. In this near-future Southern city plagued by fenced-in ghettos and police violence, more and more residents are turning to this experimental medical procedure. Like any father, our narrator just wants the best for his son, Nigel, a biracial boy whose black birthmark is getting bigger by the day. The darker Nigel becomes, the more frightened his father feels. But how far will he go to protect his son? And will he destroy his family in the process? This electrifying, hallucinatory novel is at once a keen satire of surviving racism in America and a profoundly moving family story. At its center is a father who just wants his son to thrive in a broken world. Maurice Carlos Ruffin´s work evokes the clear vision of Ralph Ellison, the dizzying menace of Franz Kafka, and the crackling prose of Vladimir Nabokov. We Cast a Shadow fearlessly shines a light on the violence we inherit, and on the desperate things we do for the ones we love. Advance praise for We Cast a Shadow ´´Like Paul Beatty´s The Sellout and the film Get Out . . . a singular and unforgettable work of political art.´´-Publishers Weekly (starred review) ´´Thrilling . . . We Cast a Shadow is haunted by the ghosts of Ralph Ellison and Victor LaValle. But Maurice Carlos Ruffin, as well as the terrifying racial landscape he renders, is a world unto himself.´´-Naomi Jackson, author of The Star Side of Bird Hill ´´A literary classic that will outlive us all, We Cast a Shadow is the finely crafted quake the American novel needed.´´-Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy
