Face Time by Hank Phillippi Ryan

Face Time by Hank Phillippi RyanVeteran TV reporter Charlotte McNally fights for justice, journalism — and the battle against on-air aging. She knows that despite years of experience, she’s only as good as her most recent blockbuster story. The good news: she’s got explosive evidence that could free an innocent woman from prison. Dorinda Keller confessed to killing her husband, but the evidence doesn’t add up. Why would an innocent person confess to cold-blooded murder?

The bad news: her investigation makes Charlotte—and someone she loves—the real killer’s next target. Charlotte knows she has what it takes to get the story. Unfortunately, the more Charlotte snoops around, the more people turn up dead.

A Shadow of All Light by Fred Chappell

A Shadow of Light by Fred Chappell Fred Chappell’s A Shadow all of Light is a stylish, episodic fantasy novel, in the mode of classic Jack Vance, follows the exploits of Falco, a young man from the country, who arrives in the port city of Tardocco with the ambition of becoming an apprentice to a master shadow thief. Maestro Astolfo, whose mysterious powers of observation would rival those of Sherlock Holmes, sees Falco’s potential and puts him through a grueling series of physical lessons and intellectual tests.

Falco’s adventures coalesce into one overarching story of con men, monsters, ingenious detection, cats, and pirates. A wry humor leavens this fantastical concoction, and the style is as rich and textured as one would hope for from Chappell, a distinguished poet as well as a World Fantasy Award-winning fantasy writer.
