Note: Originally published: 2015 Who would want to kill widowed mother of two Ellen Tailor, a seemingly innocent, inoffensive woman, and leave her body for her children to find? Rina Martin's policeman friend Mac can't find anything that looks like a motive and not much more in terms of suspects. While it is true Ellen didn't get on with her mother in law, it seems hard to believe their arguments escalated into a brutal killing.

Note: Lincolnshire, June 1928. When three freshly-buried bodies are unearthed in the front yard of a rented cottage, DCI Henry Johnstone, a specialist murder detective from London, is summoned to investigate. Two of the victims are identified as Mary Fields, known to have worked as a prostitute, and her seven-year-old daughter Ruby. But who is the third victim and what was he doing at the cottage? Johnstone is determined to do things by the book, but his use of forensic science and other modern methods of detection soon ruffles feathers. Frustrated by the unhelpful attitude of the local constabulary, Johnstone fears the investigation is heading nowhere. Then he's called out to another murder.

Note: Victor Griffin seemed to be one of the good guys, but that didn't stop someone coming to his home and killing him and his wife. The last act of Vic's life was to try and save his children: fifteen-month-old Jack, and his beloved stepdaughter, Sarah. But why were Vic and his wife shot dead? Why is there no record of them before they came to live in Ferrymouth three years ago? The one clue to their past is a business card, wedged between the pages of an almost empty address book. A card with Naomi's name on it. Naomi and Alec find themselves drawn back to face events that happened when Naomi was still a serving police officer just before the accident that blinded her and which have now led to murder.

Note: When artist and sometime forger Freddie Jones is found dead of an apparent heart attack, no one is surprised. Freddie drank heavily and was a longtime smoker. The only dissenting voice comes from Freddie's daughter, Bee. Before he died, her father confided that he was afraid of something - and she is convinced he was murdered. Unable to interest the police, Bee takes her suspicions to her father's old friend, Bob Taylor, who in turn seeks the advice of ex-police officer Naomi Blake. When a prominent gallery owner is murdered and a portfolio of Freddie's drawings is stolen, it would appear to confirm Bee's suspicions. What dangerous games had Freddie Jones been playing? And is Bee herself in danger?
