Lightning flashes. Another child disappears.... When Zorka Circus performs, its big top roars with laughter and cheers, but when it moves on, children vanish from the European towns it leaves behind. Circus security chief Rurik suspects a killer hides among the international performers, but they close ranks - they´ve always viewed lightning-scarred Rurik as the monster. Nevertheless, he´s determined to find the culprit and stop them before anyone else dies and the only place he can call home is ripped apart by the murders. Into Zorka Circus comes the Skomori clan, despised as gravediggers and ghoulish bloodwalkers. A one-day truce allows bloodwalker Sylvie to marry. Instead, she finds a body. Alerting others will defy her clan´s strict rules, break the truce, and leave her an outcast. When more bodies turn up, the killer´s trail becomes impossible to ignore. Rurik and Sylvie must follow the clues - even if they lead to something unimaginable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Waters.

The Bellingwood series continues with book two, A Big Life in a Small Town; book three, Treasure Uncovered; book four, Secrets and Revelations; book five, Life Between the Lines; and book six A Season of Change. A Christmas short story, Room at the Inn, follows Life Between the Lines. Bellingwood continues to grow! Polly Giller returned to Iowa from Boston to start a new life, not that her old one was all that bad. With her inheritance, she purchased an old school building in Bellingwood and is in the middle of renovating it when the bones of two bodies are pulled out of a ceiling. The whole town knows who those bones belong to, but when she also finds crates and crates of items from the ´60s through the early ´90s in the old root cellar, they wonder if the two things are connected. A welcoming committee shows up at Polly´s front door, and these women soon become her fast friends. Fortunately, the leader of the group is married to the sheriff, and he is there to make sure mysteries are solved and everyone stays safe, but when Polly´s old boyfriend from Boston shows up, that becomes a little more difficult. The women might be a little older than Polly, but she finds out they might be even more wild than the friends she had when living back east. Lydia Merritt, the sheriff´s wife, is a woman filled with love and passion. Beryl Watson is an artist and more than a little flamboyant. Andy Saner wants to organize and label the world, but loves with a great big heart, and Sylvie Donovan, with her two young sons, is trying to make it as a single mother. The men in Polly´s world are just as interesting. Henry Sturtz is the carpenter and contractor in charge of construction and might have a little crush on his boss, while Doug Randall and Billy Endicott are her Jedi Knights in shining armor. Polly´s immediate family might be gone, but her new family offers a great deal of love, fun, 1. Language: English. Narrator: Logan Russell.
