On the 50th anniversary of the publication of his first novel, Peter Lovesey, Mystery Writers of America Grand Master and titan of the British detective novel, returns to the subject of his very first mystery: running. Through a particularly tragic series of events, couch potato Maeve Kelly has been forced to sign up for the Other Half, Bath's springtime half-marathon. What Maeve doesn't know is just how brutal some of the other runners are. As race day draws closer, an Albanian refugee named Spiro makes a run for freedom on the other side of town, escaping the chain gang that has held him hostage and its murderous foreman, who is known to his charges as The Finisher. The Finisher has killed for disobedience before, and Spiro knows there's a target on his back as he tries to lose himself in the genteel medieval city of Bath. Meanwhile Detective Peter Diamond is tasked with crowd control on the raucous day of the race - and catches sight of a violent criminal he put away a decade ago, and who very much seems to be up to his old tricks now that he is paroled. Diamond's hackles are already up when he learns that one of the runners never crossed the finish line and has disappeared without a trace. Was Diamond a spectator to the prelude to a murder?
Lavishly set in the Victorian period of the 1870's, The Finisher explores the unique story of Anna-Leigh Oliver, a girl who has lived almost her entire life cloistered away as a servant in a convent, and possesses no experience with the outside world. Upon the death of her aunt, the executors of the estate send Anna-Leigh to New England's most exclusive finishing school, so that she might be educated as to the world about her. Bright and beautiful, intelligent and talented, yet entirely na�ve, young Anna-Leigh's curiosity knows no bounds. A natural artist, who excels in all her classes, yet terribly quiet and shy, once the headmistress learns of Anna-Leigh's ignorance about the masculine sex, she brings in a special art tutor, �douard Henri (Paul) Avril to polish her artistic talents, as well as educate her in everything the beautiful, yet achingly innocent young girl should know about men. An exuberant and richly embroidered tale of youth, beauty, natural curiosity, and discovery, The Finisher is as much a classic and lively romance as a softly sensual erotic novel.
Joshua is the one who finished the assignment which Moses started. Moses brought the Israelites out of the Egyptian bondage; but it was Joshua who actually led them into the Land of Promise – Canaan. Joshua led the children of Israel across the Jordan into the land of the Canaanites. By the Power and Help of God, they fought their battles and won their enemies. And Joshua divided their inheritance and possessions among them. God was with Joshua all the days of his life; and he led the Israelites by the Way of the Lord. God directed him and gave him different Instructions at different times. God also did great signs and wonders through Joshua.

Why would Quentin Herms flee into the Quag? There was nothing in the Quag except certain death. Vega Jane has never left the village of Wormwood. But this isn't unusual -- nobody has ever left the village of Wormwood. At least not until Quentin Herms vanishes into the unknown. Vega knows Quentin didn't just leave -- he was chased. And he's left behind a very dangerous trail of clues that only she can decode. The Quag is a dark forest filled with terrifying beasts and bloodthirsty Outliers. But just as deadly are the threats that exist within the walls of Wormwood. It is a place built on lies, where influential people are willing to kill to keep their secrets. Vega is determined to uncover the truth -- but the closer she gets, the more she risks her life. With THE FINISHER, master storyteller David Baldacci conjures a thrilling, imaginative world where things are as wrong as wrong can be -- and introduces us to an unforgettable heroine who must think fast, look close, and defy all odds in her fight to do what's right.
