Unlike most of the girls on the reservation, Pixie - 'Patrice' - Paranteau has no desire to wear herself down on a husband and kids. She works at the factory, earning barely enough to support her mother and brother, let alone her alcoholic father who sometimes returns home to bully her for money. But Patrice needs every penny to get if she's ever going to get to Minnesota to find her missing sister Vera. In The Night Watchman multi-award winning author Louise Erdrich weaves together a story of past and future generations, of preservation and progress. She grapples with the worst and best impulses of human nature, illuminating the loves and lives, desires and ambitions of her characters with compassion, wit and intelligence.

Chief Inspector Henrique Monroe of the Lisbon Police Department is not your usual cop. Eccentric, elliptical – and stunningly observant – his peculiar behavior at crime scenes is legendary. But his colleagues put up with it because, in the end, Monroe’s the best of the best. But he has a double-sided secret. And when he’s called to investigate the brutal slaying of well-connected Portuguese businessman Pedro Coutinho, it’s not just the murder case that will unravel – but his own identity, too. As Monroe’s investigations lead him deep into a torrid world of shady political corruption and sexual violence, the details of the case trigger memories from his childhood in rural Colorado – memories he has travelled far, and worked hard, to hide. His behavior becomes even more upsetting and inappropriate than usual, and even his family – his wife, his brother and his two young boys – start to fear for the man they thought they knew. Henrique struggles to move his investigation forward whilst keeping the walls of his identity from crumbling. And then, another violent crime changes his life forever, destroying any chance he has of continuing to keep his secret . . . A chilling psychological

Eleven months ago, Ray Quinn was a tough, quick-witted Orlando homicide detective at the top of his game--until a barrage of bullets ended his career…and his partner’ s life. Now medically retired with a painful handicap, Ray battles the haunting guilt for his partner’s death. Numbing the pain with alcohol and attitude, Ray takes a job as a night watchman at a swanky Orlando condo. But when a pastor and an exotic dancer are found dead in one of the condos in an apparent murder-suicide, Ray can no longer linger in the shadows. The pastor’s sister is convinced her brother was framed and begs Ray to take on an impossible case--to challenge the evidence and clear her brother’s name. Ray reluctantly pulls the threads of this supposedly dead-end case only to unravel a murder investigation so deep that it threatens to turn the Orlando political landscape upside down and transform old friends into new enemies. As Ray chases down leads and interrogates suspects, someone is watching his every move, someone determined to keep him from ever finding out the truth--at any cost.

Als Landreaux Iron bei einem tragischen Jagdunfall Dusty, den Sohn seiner Nachbarn, tötet, beschließen er und seine Frau, ihren jüngsten Sohn LaRose bei Dustys Familie aufwachsen zu lassen. Ergeben beugt sich LaRose dieser indianischen Tradition, die zu aller Überraschung ungeahnte, tröstliche Dinge bewirkt. Alles könnte sich zum Guten wenden, wäre da nicht einer, der mit Landreaux eine alte Rechnung offen hat und seine große Chance auf Rache wittert. „Ein Meisterwerk der amerikanischen Literatur, das bleiben wird.“ Booklist „Erdrich trägt, wie Faulkner, das dunkle Wissen ihres Landes in sich. Sie zählt zu den besten amerikanischen Schriftstellern.“ Philip Roth, New York Times „Wie Toni Morrison, Tolstoi oder Steinbeck zeichnet Erdrich ihre Charaktere voller Liebe und erzählt von ihnen, ohne je über sie zu richten.“ San Francisco Chronicle.
