The Blurb On The Back:

It begins with someone else’s story.  The story of a woman who leaves a busy restaurant on a chilly spring night in Washington, DC, walks out into the night and disappears completely.

Evelyn Carney is missing.  For brilliant TV news producer Virginia Knightly, that’s a story worth investigating.  But as she traces Evelyn’s last movements, she finds herself stumbling on secrets that powerful people want kept out of the news.  Soon, it’s clear that before she uncovers what really happened that night, she’ll need to fight for her career, her sanity –and even her life.

Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie

The Blurb On The Back:

How do you defend a city surrounded by enemies and riddled with traitors, when your allies can by no means be trusted, and your predecessor vanished without trace?  It’s enough to make a torturer want to run – if he could even walk without a stick – and Inquisitor Glotka needs answers before the Gurkish army comes knocking at the gates.

Northmen have spilled over the Angland border and are spreading fire and death across the frozen country.  Crown Prince Ladisla is poised to drive them back and win undying glory.  There is only one problem: he commands the worst armed, worst-trained and worst-led army in the world.

And Bayaz, the First of the Magi, is leading a party of bold adventurers on a mission through the ruins of the past.  The most hated woman in the South, the most feared man in the North, and most selfish boy in the Union make strange companions, but, if only they didn’t hate each other so much, potentially deadly ones.

Ancient secrets will be uncovered.  Bloody battles will be won and lost.  Bitter enemies will be forgiven – but not before they are hanged.
