False Step
This is the third 'Abbot Agency' mystery. Bea Abbot's domestic agency does not, repeat not, investigate murder...that is, until she finds herself in the company of a dead man dressed as a pantomime dame. It looks like suicide, but why don't his red-spangled shoes fit? Matthew Kent was an entertainer known to be a kindly and modest man in private, so why had he staged this grotesque charade in death? And why is his daughter so keen to hustle his mortal remains away without publicity? Then again, who exactly inherits his delightful Kensington house, and which of the women around him - two surviving wives and a daughter - really cared about him, rather than his money? Bea's own house is in chaos as builders remodel the agency offices, and to make matters worse, Max, her Member of Parliament son, moves in with her when his marriage looks like breaking down. Struggling to run the agency from her bedroom, concerned about both her young assistants' emotional problems, Bea tries to discover what the body on the bed was really like in life, why there is so much confusion about his death, and who is destined to die next...

A Picture of Guilt
This is the first of a new mystery series featuring an unusual journalist, Alison Glasby.A photograph of two young girls, sisters enjoying the summer sun on a day trip to the seaside. Nothing could be more innocent. But why did it turn up thirty-five years later, clutched in a child killer's hand as she lay dying in her prison cell?Alison Glasby is 25, ambitious and lonely. She's a journalist on the Sunday Herald but her career is going nowhere. And despite the best attentions of Scotland Yard murder squad detective John Redgrave, neither is her personal life. Then she gets the chance to work with Fleet Street legend Bill Davenport.Four children were killed in Norfolk in 1969, murdered by Leonie Dellar and her lover. Bill Davenport covered the case and wrote the book - literally. He got close to some of those involved, really close. Glasby was only supposed to do Davenport's legwork, but then she finds the photograph that Dellar had hidden. How did Leonie Dellar get the photo and what made her keep it hidden for so many years? Davenport wants Glasby off the story now. What is it about the murders that he doesn't want her to know?The answer has stayed buried for thirty-five years, but if Glasby wants the truth, she's got ten days to get to it. Davenport won't help her but John Redgrave might - if she lets him.

Antietam Assassins: An American Civil War Novel
In eighteen months as part of famed detective Allan Pinkerton's Secret Service during the American Civil War, Harry Raines has repeatedly risked his own life and experienced unbelievable horrors. Sick of it, he resigns from the service and retires to the horse farm he inherited from his mother in the upper Potomac valley near Shepherdstown, Virginia. This idyll is quickly interrupted, however, when the local Presbyterian minister, a family friend, is found shot and hanged in lynch mob fashion. Harry's investigation of the murder is cut short by the arrival of Robert E. Lee's invading Army of Northern Virginia and the ensuing Battle of Antietam. Fought just across the river from Shepherdstown, it was the bloodiest single day of the war but a pivotal engagement that enabled Abraham Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. Acquitting himself well as a scout in the battle, Harry returns to his detective work, bedevilled by a continuing succession of murders of young Shepherdstown women who may or may not have been involved romantically with the slain pastor. The ultimate solution to the mystery not only lays bare the town's bitter divisions over slavery, but proves to have the gravest possible national implications.

All The Lonely People
When Detective Inspector Joseph Rafferty visits his local for a quick drink or three, he's looking to forget his troubles, not add to them. His ex-fiancee Abra is still refusing to talk to him, and he's fast losing hope of a reconciliation. But, after a very public argument, a man is found dead - stabbed to death in the pub's car park - and a gloomy Rafferty gets out the breath freshener, and gets on the case. Unfortunately, the case is less open and shut than it first appears. The witnesses all plead alcohol-induced memory loss, and Rafferty's habitually cautious sidekick Dafyd Llewellyn isn't helping either - casting doubt on all of Rafferty's conclusions. When the murderer strikes again, Rafferty is forced into a decision that he will soon regret. With the Super breathing down his neck, Llewellyn all but giving him the silent treatment, and his personal problems - including his mother, who's more closely linked to a local villain than Rafferty would like - all adding to the pressure, can Rafferty fix his mistakes before it's too late?

Brewed, Crude and Tatooed
This is the new 'Maggy Thorsen' coffee mystery. It's May first and in Wisconsin that means the daffodils and hyacinths are poking up their heads. Unfortunately, it also means they may freeze their little buds off. The Perfect Spring Storm arrives without warning or so it seems to Maggy Thorsen, co-owner of the Brookhills coffeehouse Uncommon Grounds. Trapped by a snow storm which cuts off the electricity and phone lines, Maggy ventures out into the service corridor that connects Uncommon Grounds to the rest of the mall, looking for sustenance beyond espresso and pastries. What she finds instead is the body of Way Benson, local developer and owner of the mall. Maggy's discovery unearths other refugees of the storm and it seems that more than one of these people has a motive for killing the arrogant Way. Cut off by the snow, Maggy has to be content to leave Way to become a corpse-sicle until she can get hold of her main squeeze, County Sheriff Jake Pavlik. Content, that is, until another member of their intrepid little group is killed and the coffee - sans electricity - gets even colder than the bodies.
