David Armstrong Written Out (Di Frank Kavanagh) Pbk published April 2010 by Severn House at £10.99 ISBN: 1847511597


Novelist Tom Oliver is not the most popular man in the world and, initially, he isn't much missed when he disappears at the end of a week tutoring at a writer's centre in rural Shropshire. It eventually falls to DI Frank Kavanagh and his colleague DC Jane Salt to ascertain whether one of his literary enemies, a former lover, or perhaps one of their humiliated husbands has finally exacted revenge. Is his disappearance an innocent affair, or has he himself now been Written Out? David Armstrong's new Kavanagh and Salt mystery is a dark, but in places amusing, novel that exposes the jealousies and obsessions of the writing business in all its tawdry colours.

David Armstrong's first novel Night's Black Agents was published in 1993 and was shortlisted for the CWA's Best First Crime Novel Award. He is the author of several crime novels including Until Dawn Tomorrow, Thought for the Day and, from Severn House, A Kind of Acquaintance, which also features DI Frank Kavanagh.

Gerald Hammond The Fingers of One Foot Pbk published June 2010 by Severn House at £10.99 ISBN: 1847511627


In a gentle village on the Scottish borders, Roland Fox, a young aspiring writer, moves in next door to the equally young and attractive Jane Highsmith, a newly qualified veterinary surgeon. But the growing attraction between them is muted by the mystery surrounding the recent death of her much beloved great-grandfather - who apparently fell off a narrow bridge into a stream. In true small village fashion, everyone seems to know each other's business, and it is no surprise that the neighbours have noticed the growing bond between Jane and Roland, but some have remarked with disquiet on the investigations that these two amateurs seem to be making into the supposedly accidental death. Add to the mix, a sibling rivalry between Jane and her older sister Violet, who has poached and subsequently married Jane's ex-boyfriend; and the initially unhelpful remarks of a distant relative; plus the local police inspector turning a blind eye to one or two of Jane's distinctly illegal, but acceptably rural, activities, and there are all the ingredients present for a traditional village mystery - in true Gerald Hammond style and with his usual Scottish flavour.

This is the new Brock and Poole mystery. When MP Hugh Blakemore is shot dead near a bus stop in the Fulham Road, DCI Harry Brock and DS Dave Poole are assigned to the case.

Although Blakemore was exonerated, Brock is convinced that underworld characters had exacted revenge. In an investigation that has more ups and downs than a game of snakes and ladders - and more lies than a villain's alibi - the MP's widow, her ex-husband and their daughter all play starring roles, along with a motley crew of actresses, American gangsters and criminals. And, along with murder, there's blackmail and corruption in the air...

During Graham Ison's thirty year career in Scotland Yard's Special Branch he was involved in several espionage cases. He also spent four years at 10 Downing Street as Protection Officer to two Prime Ministers.

Bill James Full of Money Pbk published June 2010 by Severn House at £10.99 ISBN: 1847511775


Part social satire, part police procedural, Bill James returns with the stunning prequel to Tip Top
Part social satire, part gripping police procedural, Bill James returns with the stunning prequel to "Tip Top". In Bill James' London, everything seems to lead back to the drug-ridden housing estates of Whitsun Festival and Temperate Park Acres, where a connection, once made, is only ever one thing: trouble. Trouble for journalist Gervaise Maniciple Tasker, whose investigation into the drug firms at the heart of the estates leads to his murder; trouble for Esther Davidson, Detective Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, whose job it is to arrest the killer; and trouble for Larry Edgehill, a TV producer who, by the most tenuous of links, becomes more involved with the Romeo and Juliet-esque romance between a Temperate-based TV presenter and the daughter of the Whitsun gang leader than he ever would have wanted ...Blackly humorous, at times disturbing, and always gripping, "Full of Money" is a cynical but engaging look at culture, class and crime, through the eyes of a collection of deeply flawed but fascinating characters.

Bill James is best known for his Harpur & Iles police procedural novels, which have enjoyed tremendous critical and popular acclaim.
