Notes:
December, 1917. Ada Hobbes has cleaned for Dr Tindall for many years, and on this frosty morning she arrives at 9am to begin the day there, while he is at work. Since she knows that the place is empty, she lets herself in and goes to the kitchen to collect the various things that she needs. But it turns out the house is not empty after all. The blood-covered George Tindall is sprawled across the floor. As soon as Harvey Marmion and Joe Keedy arrive at Scotland Yard, they are sent off to investigate the murder. The scene is horrific, and even a seasoned detective like Marmion turns away in disgust. Someone enjoyed killing Tindall, without a doubt. Their investigation takes them out of London, and on the trail of three different women as it emerges that Dr Tindall was not the respectable local GP after all, but a bigamist whose third wife had some very interesting connections in the crime fraternity.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Allison & Busby Limited, 2016 Pentonville Prison. Wally Hubbard is serving a long sentence for arson. But after befriending and tricking one of the officers, Hubbard makes an audacious escape. Inspector Marmion, the detective who arrested Hubbard, is warned to watch his back, but it seems that he has another target in his murderous sights. However, the investigation is mired by confusion, the identities of killer and victim become increasingly ambiguous. An inmate at an internment camp who might be a spy spending intelligence to the Germans complicates matters further, and the multiplying manhunts, as well as Marmion's concern for is injured and withdrawn son Paul, leave the detective desperate and perhaps with too many threads to untangle.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Allison & Busby Limited, 2020 London, 1817. An impatient crowd is gathered outside the stage door of the Covent Garden Theatre, desperate for a glimpse of actress Hannah Granville after her latest performance as Lady Macbeth, amongst them the Prince Regent himself. But before she can appear a gunshot sounds, and a man lies dead on the ground amidst the ensuing chaos. Sir Roger Mellanby MP had been a spearhead for social reform, although his political leanings had made him many enemies within the Westminster elite and even in his own family. But was he really the intended target of the shooting? After a curt dismissal from the Bow Street Runners, Mellanby's friend Seth Hooper engages the services of twin detectives Paul and Peter Skillen to investigate the killing. Elsewhere, the assassin's own problems are just beginning.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Allison & Busby Limited, 2015 London, Autumn 1916. When he slips out of a house in the early hours of the morning, Simon Wilder is too preoccupied to realise that he is being stalked. As he walks along the street, lights begin to dim as a warning that there's another Zeppelin attack. Guns begin to pound away as British aeroplanes attack the Zeppelin. Suddenly, it bursts into flame and lights up the whole sky. The crowds cheer as the great fireball drops slowly down and crashes in a field but the one person unable to watch is Simon Wilder. While he is staring up at the sky, he is stabbed to death and left in an alleyway. It will prove to be a very puzzling case for Inspector Marmion and Sergeant Keedy.

Note: Originally published: New York: St. Martin's Minotaur, 2003 "This was no random act of malice," proclaims stage manager Nicholas Bracewell, after an audience brawl disrupts the latest comedic performance by Westfield's Men. If there was any doubt of design behind this affray, it's quickly dispelled by the discovery of a dead spectator in the gallery. So who wielded the dagger, and why? Bracewell and the other members of his troupe haven't the time to find out, before they are ousted from their usual stage in Elizabethan London and forced to take to the road for their income, beginning a tour of the Kent countryside that will bring them even more trouble than they could typically find in the capital.
