Originally published: London: Severn House, 2017
When a six-week-old baby is stolen from outside a village shop DI Costello quickly surmises there's more to this case than meets the eye. As she questions those involved, she uncovers evidence that this was no impulse act as the police initially assumed, but something cold, logical, meticulously planned. Who has taken Baby Sholto - and why? Colin Anderson meanwhile is on the Cold Case Unit, reviewing the unsolved rape of a young mother back in 1996. Convinced this wasn't the first - or last - time the attacker stuck, Anderson looks for a pattern. But when he does find a connection, it reaches back into his own past.

Note: A few days before the summer solstice a 92-year-old woman is found burned to death in her home. On the same day, a man's mutilated corpse is discovered in a field, his arms ripped from their sockets, a Tarot card depicting The Fool inserted in his mouth. When the victim is identified as someone for whom the police have been looking for almost a year, detectives Anderson and Costello find themselves caught up in a case where nothing is as it seems. Was the dead man really responsible for three child murders? And what is the connection with the death of the elderly woman?

Publisher: Severn House Paperbacks
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2016 In August 1992, a young mother and her two small sons were brutally murdered in the woods behind their home. Her neighbour Andrew Gyle was convicted of the crime and sentenced to life imprisonment. Now, 23 years later, a macabre discovery throws new light on the case. Could there have been a shocking miscarriage of justice? Having only just returned to work following an enforced leave of absence, DCI Colin Anderson knows he must make a success of his comeback case. But, as he and his partner, DI Costello, uncover serious discrepancies in the original investigation, it becomes clear that not everyone is telling them the truth. Meanwhile, Costello worries that Anderson is struggling to cope - and his increasingly odd behaviour causes her to begin to think the unthinkable: can she trust her own partner?
