The Prized Girl
A teenage beauty queen is found murdered in this gripping debut from Amy K. Green. A murdered beauty queen. A town full of secrets. Who killed Jenny? Days after a young pageant queen named Jenny is found murdered, her small town grieves the loss alongside her picture-perfect parents. At first glance, Jenny's tragic death appears clear-cut for investigators. The most obvious suspect is one of her fans, an older man who may have gotten too close for comfort. But Jenny's half-sister, Virginia - the sarcastic black sheep of the family - isn't so sure of his guilt and takes matters into her own hands to find the killer. But for Jenny's case and Virginia's investigation, there's more to the story. Virginia, still living in town and haunted by her own troubled teenage years, suspects that a similar darkness lay beneath the sparkling veneer of Jenny's life. Infused with dark humour and driven the sisters' two captivating voices,The Prized Girl tells a heartbreaking story of missed connections, a complicated family, and a town's disturbing secrets . . .

Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. And only Diaz knows how to stop it. He races across the country to help two unwitting security guards - one an ex-con, the other a single mother. Over one harrowing night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine this horror again . . . before it's too late, PRAISE FOR COLD STORAGE 'A chilling first novel [with] cinematic flair . . . it's scary, and a great deal of fun' Daily Mail 'A novel that reads like one of [Koepp's] movies: occasionally frightening, often humorous and always fast-paced' Mail on Sunday 'The book's strengths include the Stephen King-like way humour is interwoven with horror and Koepp's enthralling conjuring of the fungus, which becomes as vivid as its human co-leads' Sunday Times Culture 'Depending on your taste in humour and gore threshold, you may well be grinning and gagging in equal measure reading this debut novel from top Hollywood scriptwriter David Koepp. This is about as near to Zombieland or Tremors in book form as you're likely to find. It is properly, full-on gross in places but populated with a vividly drawn cast of believably down-to-earth characters in a plot that accelerates to breakneck pace by the breathless finale' SFX Magazine 'To be simultaneously terrifying and hilarious is a masterstroke few writers can pull off, but Koepp manages in this incredible fiction debut that calls to mind a beautiful hybrid of Michael Crichton and Carl Hiassen. Cold Storage is sheer thrillery goodness, and riotously entertaining' Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter 'A pacy and roaringly entertaining thriller' Magic Radio 'A thrilling, funny, and unexpectedly moving joy ride' Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of A Simple Plan 'Koepp has resurrected Crichton, injecting every page with dark humour and humanity. You'll be laughing one minute and checking your long-term survival plan the next' Christina Dalcher, Sunday Times-bestselling author of VOX 'This is a terrific thriller: ambitious, audacious, gory, scary, flamboyant, and funny' Booklist 'Cold Storage is so addictive, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough . . . the story is just as contagious as the subject' New York Times bestselling author Alice Feeney 'You might as well put your plans on ice for the next twenty-four hours, as all you'll be doing is reading this book. The very definition of 'thriller,' David Koepp's Cold Storage grabs you and shakes you and ultimately leaves you grinning' Scott Frank, Academy Award-nominated writer of Logan and Out of Sight

William Arrowood returns . . . 'Crackles with energy and wit' The Times South London, 1896. William Arrowood, Victorian London's less salubrious private detective, is paid a visit by Captain Moon, the owner of a pleasure steamer moored on the Thames. He complains that someone has been damaging his boat, putting his business in jeopardy. Arrowood and his trusty sidekick Barnett suspect professional jealousy, but when a string of skulls is retrieved from the river, it seems like even fouler play is afoot. It's up to Arrowood and his trusty sidekick Barnett to solve the case, before any more corpses end up in the watery depths . . . Praise for Mick Finlay: 'Another brilliant read from Mick Finlay . . . even better than [Arrowood]' B.A. Paris 'Astounding ... If you crave Victorian age murder mystery, love darkly gothic atmospheres and want your detective rather tattered and torn at the edges Arrowood is your man.'

The Groote Park Murder (Detective Club Crime Classics)
From a murder in South Africa to the tracking down of a master criminal in northern Scotland, this is a true classic of Golden Age detective fiction by one of its most accomplished champions. When a signalman discovers a mutilated body inside a railway tunnel near Groote Park, it seems to be a straightforward case of a man struck by a passing train. But Inspector Vandam of the Middeldorp police isn't satisfied that Albert Smith's death was accidental, and he sets out to prove foul play in a baffling mystery which crosses continents from deepest South Africa to the wilds of northern Scotland, where an almost identical crime appears to have been perpetrated. The Groote Park Murder was the last of Freeman Wills Crofts' standalone crime novels, foreshadowing his iconic Inspector French series and helping to cement his reputation (according to his publishers) as 'the greatest and most popular detective writer in the world'. Like The Cask, The Ponson Case and The Pit-Prop Syndicate before it, here were a delightfully ingenious plot, impeccable handling of detail, and an overwhelming surprise 'curtain' from a masterful crime writer on the cusp of global success. This Detective Club classic is introduced with an essay by Freeman Wills Crofts, unseen since 1937, about 'The Writing of a Detective Novel'.
