Well, he was.When I find out that he’s foreclosing on my grandmother’s property, I’m furious. I go to the bank and demand that he forgive her debt, but I don’t have much to offer in exchange, especially not money.With a not-so-innocent grin, he proposes a deal. Three days with me, doing anything he desires, and he’ll forgive my grandmother’s debt. The catch? If I deny him anything, the deal is off - and he evicts my grandmother immediately. With no other options, I accept his offer, but will I be able to hold up my end of the bargain? Or will his desires prove too much?Get ready for one hell of a journey.

When a young artist and the woman he loves find themselves imprisoned within a moment in time between present day New York and Mississippi 1938, they attempt to make sense of a world in which they can´t seem to find their place in the ´´center of the Universe´´. But there are stones in their pass way, and hellhounds on their trail. At times both bleak and redemptive - much like the Blues itself - Chasing the Wolf is a surprisingly tender look into the madness of love, the madness of hate, and the dark secrets that lie along the banks of the muddy Mississippi. 1.

A 12-year-old boy runs wildly into his local police station claiming to have seen Halldis Horn´s brutally murdered corpse. Errki Johrma, an escaped psychiatric patient and known town misfit, was sighted at the scene disappearing into the woods. The next morning the local bank is robbed at gunpoint. Making his escape, the robber takes a hostage and flees and, once again, a suspect takes to the woods. As the felon´s plans begin to fall apart he is, in contrast to his quiet hostage, rapidly losing his control and power. Meanwhile the search for Halldis Horn´s killer continues. All fingers of suspicion point to Errki - except one. Errki´s doctor refuses to believe that he could have committed such a horrific act and, for the first time since his wife´s death, the quiet Inspector finds himself intrigued by another woman. Despite all assumptions a lack of concrete evidence holds back the case to convict Errki for murder. But in a novel that will keep you desperate to turn each new page to find out more, Fossum brilliantly ensures that things are rarely as they would at first appear. From the deeply sympathetic policeman to the social outcast of Errki and the bank robber thoroughly unsuited to his profession, Fossum writes from within the minds of her characters with great lucidity - but she never gives too much away. 1.
