Perry Hollow, Pennsylvania, has never had a murder. At least not as long as Kat Campbell has been police chief. And the first is brutal. George Winnick, a farmer in his sixties, is found in a homemade coffin on the side of the highway with his lips sewn shut and his veins and arteries drained of blood and filled with embalming fluid. Chilling as that is, it becomes even more so when Kat finds that the Perry Hollow Gazette obituary writer, Henry Goll, received a death notice for Winnick before he was killed. Soon after, the task force from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Investigation shows up and everything takes an irreversible turn for the worse. Nick Donnelly, head of the task force, has been chasing the "Betsy Ross Killer," so named because he's handy with a needle and thread, for more than a year. Winnick seems to be his fourth victim. Or is he? Kat has never handled a murder case before, but she's not about to sit by while someone terrorizes her sleepy little town or her own son. But will her efforts be enough to stop a killer and bring calm to Perry Hollow? A portrait of a small town in turmoil, where residents fear for their lives, Todd Ritter's Death Notice is a gripping debut from a terrific new talent in crime fiction.

Paul Lang, director of campus security, is restless. His wife has moved to California to help her folks open a new clothing shop--a divorce perhaps? His daughter, Shelley, is ready to graduate and has decisions to make and growing up to do. His best friend, the university basketball coach, plans to retire--he will be missed! The university has a new boss--a woman! It looks like a difficult year ahead. Just as life seems to be settling down, however, the usually quiet campus office is turned upside down with the sudden death of Dr. Evans, their leading research director. It was murder--a broken neck! And it came just as the campus was to be visited by a supervisory team for evaluation. They are all still reeling from the murder when a second occurs. Again, a broken neck, but no sign of why. The campus community receives a warning message, and the pressure becomes intolerable. The answer comes as the honors day ceremony is played out and the hallowed halls of the university are once again open to all.

On an online forum, a vigilante calling themselves 'Eumenides' – after the Greek goddesses of retribution – announces their intention of meting out justice for unpunished crimes. Despite publishing the name of each victim and the date of execution – their death notices – the police are simply unable to stop the killer. A special investigation team is assembled, what connection does this have to an eighteen-year-old case that saw two similar 'death notice' killings and a bomb blast that killed two top students from the provincial police academy? For Detective Luo Fei, the investigation is personal and, with lives in the balance, the darker side of human nature comes to light.

A New York Times bestseller: “[Red Notice] does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what Liar’s Poker did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder’s business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, making Red Notice an early candidate for any list of the year’s best books” (Fortune). This is a story about an accidental activist. Bill Browder started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune. Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of the Putin regime and has spent the last half decade on a campaign to expose it. Because of that, he became Putin’s number one enemy, especially after Browder succeeded in having a law passed in the United States that punishes a list of Russians implicated in the lawyer’s murder. Putin famously retaliated with a law that bans Americans from adopting Russian orphans. A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he found meaning in his life.
