The brilliant new Istanbul crime novel from Barbara Nadel delves into the shocking world of honour killing
Turkey: the police are called to the scene of what seems to be the honour killing of a young girl. Burnt alive, she is not the first girl to suffer such an horrific death in Istanbul. Further investigations by Inspectors Cetin Ikmen and Mehmet Suleyman reveal that the girl had a secret boyfriend who has now disappeared. He and the girl's family are prime suspects, even though forensic evidence is scant. Why does the family, in common with other families of girls immolated in the city, now appear to be broke? There are also links to an infamous local gangster. Religion, organised crime and the lengths some people will go to in order to conform, come together in a tragic story of violence in a divided and changing society. And Mehmet Suleyman is on the verge of making a mistake that could ruin his career...

Trained as an actress, Barbara Nadel used to work in mental health services. Born in the East End of London, she now lives in Lancashire and writes full time. She received the Crime Writers` Association Silver Dagger for her novel DEADLY WEB.

Inspector Harry Hole is convinced there is a link between the disappearance and a menacing letter he received some months earlier. As Harry and his team delve into unsolved case files, they discover that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years. When a second woman disappears Harry's suspicions are confirmed: he is a pawn in a deadly game.

In the heart of summer, the country swelters in a fug of heat. In the beautiful forested lake-town of Sorbinowo, Sergeant Merwin Kluuge’s tranquil existence is shattered when he receives a phone-call from an anonymous woman. She tells him that a girl has gone missing from the summer camp of the mysterious The Pure Life, a religious sect buried deep in the woods. Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is recruited to help solve the mystery.
But Van Veeteren’s investigations at The Pure Life go nowhere fast. The strange priest-like figure who leads the sect -Oscar Yellineck- refuses even to admit anyone is missing. Things soon take a sinister turn, however, when a young girl’s body is discovered in the woods, raped and strangled; and Yellineck himself disappears. Yet even in the face of these new horrors, the remaining members of the sect refuse to co-operate with Van Veeteren, remaining largely silent.
As the body count rises, a media frenzy descends upon the town and the pressure to find the monster behind the murders weighs heavily on the investigative team. Finally Van Veeteren realises that to solve this disturbing case, faced with silence and with few clues to follow, he has only his intuition to rely on. . .

Håkan Nesser was born in 1950 and is one of Sweden’s most popular crime writers, receiving numerous awards for his novels featuring commissioner Van Veeteren. He started writing while working as a teacher. Håkan Nesser lives in Uppsala with his wife and two sons.

Bernard O'Mahoney Wannabe in my Gang?: From the Krays to the Essex Boys [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Mainstream Digital at £5.84 ISBN: B004XIVOZK


"Kray gang boss" Tony Lambrianou - who served a life sentence for the brutal murder of Jack "the hat" McVitie - has threatened to "kill him by smashing a hammer through his head".
"Dodgy" Dave Courtney, who claims to have murdered two gangland rivals, tried "‘to put him out of his misery", and "the most dangerous man in the country", John "Gaffer" Rollinson, has vowed to kill him "when he finds him."
But Bernard O`Mahoney, one time friend of the notorious Kray Brothers and former key member of the Essex Boys Firm, isn't concerned about their boastful threats because he knows the truth about the wannabe gangsters who have built their "reputation" on fantasy gleaned from Hollywood movies and "true" crime books written by their heroes.
This story is of a journey, a journey that spans two decades and involves the most infamous names and crimes in British history. It gives a unique insight into the Kray brothers "Firm" whose public image is a far cry from the truth.
Wannabe also reveals what happened to the remaining members of the Essex Boys Firm following the death of Ecstasy victim Leah Betts and the murder of three of its leaders, who were found in their blood spattered Range Rover one winters evening.
For the first time ever, O'Mahoney will expose the gangland myths that have made legends of those who claim to be responsible for mayhem and murder. He reveals the sordid secret of one of Britain’s most infamous gangsters and tells the truth about the impostors who make a living selling stories and writing books about events that have never even happened.
This is the book many in the underworld never wanted the public to read.

Robert B. Parker Sixkill [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Quercus at £9.02 ISBN: B004YOBGFQ


A girl has been found dead, seemingly strangled, in the hotel room of movie star Jumbo Nelson. Jumbo's lawyers want Spenser to find out whether Jumbo did it - not because they care either way, but because the knowledge will help them work out how to block his conviction. Jumbo is a sufficiently repulsive individual that Spenser finds it hard to contain his distaste. And then there is his bodyguard, Zebulon Sixkill, a Cree Indian who squandered his pro-football career thanks to an inability to control his temper, and turned his attentions to alcohol instead. Also involved in Jumbo's case for reasons that remain unclear is a cold-blooded assassin who just might be the most dangerous enemy Spenser has faced yet. But if he can persuade Sixkill to turn his life around, Spenser might just have the ally he needs...

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Robert B. Parker completed a PhD in English at Boston University. He began writing his Spenser novels in 1971 while teaching at Boston's Northeastern University, and he was named Grand Master of the 2002 Edgar Awards by the Mystery Writers of America.

Stuart Pawson A Very Private Murder (DI Charlie Priest) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Allison Busby at £4.67 ISBN: B004NBXZ72


D.I. Charlie Priest is on gardening leave - the neighbours have complained about his weeds - when the call comes. Ghislaine Curzon, girlfriend of one of the royal princes, is in Heckley to open the Curzon Centre, a new shopping mall and conference facility. But as she reveals the commemorative plaque at the opening ceremony it looks like someone has got to it first, defacing it with a single obscene word in foot-high red letters. The visiting dignitaries are aghast and the chief constable insists on Charlie investigating the case. Charlie would rather be investigating the burglaries perpetrated by a two-man gang, armed with a pit bull terrier, but he welcomes the opportunity to meet Ghislaine, known as Grizzly to her friends, at the family's stately home in East Yorkshire. He also meets and befriends Toby, her precocious thirteen-year-old sister. The jollities cease, however, when the mayor of Heckley and driving force behind the construction of the Curzon Centre is found dead, killed by a single shot to the head. The subsequent investigation involves Charlie visiting the mayor's diminutive, flute-playing wife; the manageress of the mall and her anarchist student son; a half-blind jockey and a cornucopia of characters from the rich farmland of East Yorkshire. As one of them tells Charlie: 'We do things different in the country'. Charlie is not averse to doing things differently himself, to the displeasure of the superintendent in charge of the investigation, and it's going to take more than standard police procedure to crack this case.

Detective Inspector Charlie Priest of the East Pennine force is officially on sick leave, but when Mrs Marina Norris's chauffeur is found dead from unnatural causes - namely a blast to the head from a Kalashnikov - Charlie is called in, for his reputation in murder cases is second to none. And so Charlie is the first to learn that Mrs Norris herself hasn't been home since the murder, though her husband, an American tobacco tycoon, is distinctly unfazed by this fact. Leads are few and far between and Charlie comes off the case, although he is convinced that there is a link between the murder and the disappearance. Big-time drug smugglers on the Hull-Rotterdam run demand his attention. His contact, Kevin, is a lowly cog in the great smuggling wheel, and easily hoodwinked into believing that Charlie's line of business is similar to his own, but with much greater success. Kevin is impressed by Charlie's Jaguar and classy girlfriend, Annabelle, who is hastily re-named Sharron when she and a gang member meet. But the real villains are not such a pushover, and when Charlie sees a connection with his previous enquiry he realises that he's on very dangerous territory indeed.

Stef Penney The Tenderness of Wolves [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Quercus at £4.08 ISBN: B0038QN28A


1867, Canada - As winter tightens its grip on the isolated settlement of Dove River, a man is brutally murdered and a 17-year old boy disappears. Tracks leaving the dead man's cabin head north towards the forest and the tundra beyond. In the wake of such violence, people are drawn to the township - journalists, Hudson's Bay Company men, trappers, traders - but do they want to solve the crime, or exploit it? One-by-one the assembled searchers set out from Dove River, pursuing the tracks across a desolate landscape home only to wild animals, madmen and fugitives, variously seeking a murderer, a son, two sisters missing for 17 years, a forgotten Native American culture, and a fortune in stolen furs before the snows settle and cover the tracks of the past for good. In an astonishingly assured debut, Stef Penney deftly weaves adventure, suspense, revelation and humour into a panoramic historical romance, an exhilarating thriller, a keen murder mystery and ultimately, with the sheer scope and quality of her storytelling, one of the books of the year.

Stef Penney was born and grew up in Edinburgh. After a degree in Philosophy and Theology from Bristol University she turned to film-making, studying Film and TV at Bournemouth College of Art. On graduation she was selected for the Carlton Television New Writers Scheme and has since written and directed two short films. The Tenderness of Wolves is her first novel.

The local land agent tells Knox, a young Irish policeman with divided loyalties, that it is the body of a vagrant and that the landowner Lord Cornwallis wants the case dealt with swiftly and quietly. The potato crop has failed for a second time and the Irish people are dying in their thousands. However when Knox examines the corpse it is clear that this man died wearing a Saville Row suit. Keeping his investigations secret, it becomes clear to Knox that the stranger came from London. Three months earlier Detective Inspector Pyke receives a letter from the daughter of a family friend. She has married a wealthy industrialist who owns ironworks in Merthyd Tydfil and her son has been kidnapped. Lured by the promise of a substantial fee and wanting to escape the tensions of Scotland Yard, Pyke agrees to go to Wales to investigate. There, he discovers a town riven with social discord following the brutal suppression of a workers strike and the importation of cheap Irish labour. The kidnapping is linked to a group of rebels but Pyke soon begins to suspect the case is not as clear cut as it seems. What are the links between the rebellion in Wales and the unrest in Ireland, and has Pyke finally bitten off more than he can chew?

Lilian Pizzichini Dead Men's Wages [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Picador at £5.98 ISBN: B0050NJN8M

' I am lucky. I come in at the end, and the worst and the best were over. I was too late to be the object of my grandfather's obsession. Too late to be his Miss World or his partner in crime ... All that is left for me to do is to rob the secrets of his grove. . .'

Within the pages of this haunting account of her grandfather's life, Lilian Pizzichini displays with colour and remarkable detachment the world of long firm fraudsters and disreputable conmen that he dominated until his death in 1978.
Spanning a time of enormous social and political change, Charles Taylor's story is an extraordinary one, full of cunning and intrigue, corruption, hardship and secrecy. Beginning in the early days of the 1900s, Lilian Pizzichini recounts his lower-class upbringing and gradual initiation into London's demimonde, his tumultuous family life and extra-curricular dabbling with adultery and drugs, and his unrelenting desire to be in control of all he pervaded. This was a man who would only live life the way he knew how. As his granddaughter openly and honestly reveals his past, inevitable events and encounters come to the fore that simultaneously crowned Charles at the top of his dubious profession and pushed him over its precarious edge. Part biography, part literary memoir, Dead Men's Wages is, like Lorna Sage's Bad Blood, a stunning book to inspire, haunt and move you. Lilian Pizzichini was born in London in 1965. She has worked as a bookseller and a journalist. This is her first book.

Matt Rees Mozart's Last Aria [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Corvus at £6.39 ISBN: B004V9ODJK


It is 1791 and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is enlightenment Vienna’s brightest star. Master of the city’s music halls and devoted member of the Austrian Freemason’s guild, he stands at the heart of an electric mix of art and music, philosophy and science, politics and intrigue. Six weeks ago, the great composer told his wife he had been poisoned. Yesterday, he died. The city is buzzing with rumours of infidelity, bankruptcy and murder. But Wolfgang’s sister Nannerl, returned from the provinces to investigate, will not believe base gossip. Who but a madman would poison such a genius? Yet as she looks closely at what her brother left behind - a handwritten score, a scrap of paper from his journal - Nannerl finds traces of something sinister: the threads of a masonic conspiracy that reach from the gilded ballrooms of Viennese society to the faceless offices of the Prussian secret service.
Only when watching Wolfgang's bewitching opera, The Magic Flute, does Nannerl truly understand her beloved brother once again. For, encoded in his final arias, is a subtly crafted blueprint for a radical new tomorrow. Mozart hoped to change his future. Instead he sealed his fate.

Matt Rees was born in Wales and read English at Oxford before moving to the Middle East to become a journalist. He is also the author of the award-winning Omar Yussef series, which follows a detective in Palestine, and is now published in twenty-two countries.

Kathy Reichs Bones to Ashes [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £4.85 ISBN: B003D87PPE


Under the microscope, the outer bone surface is a moonscape of craters...
'Preliminary diagnosis?' 'Deformity of the bone. Maybe. Cortical destruction on a metacarpal. Maybe. Localised infection? Systemic disease process? Postmortem destruction, either purposeful or natural? A combination of the above? I don't have a diagnosis...' The skeleton is that of a young girl, no more than fourteen years old - and forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is struggling to keep her emotions in check. Coroner Yves Bradette is being evasive, insisting the bones are ancient and of no interest. But it doesn't quite add up, and a frustrated Tempe is convinced that Bradette is hiding something...
It's not Tempe's case; she's overwhelmed with more urgent work in the lab...
But the nagging in her subconscious won't let up. A memory triggered, deep in her hindbrain - the disappearance of a childhood friend; no warning, no explanation...Working on instinct, Tempe takes matters into her own hands. But she couldn't have predicted where this case would lead, or the horrors it would eventually uncover...Can Tempe maintain a professional distance as the past catches up with her in this, her most deeply personal case yet?

Kathy Reichs is forensic anthropologist for the Offices of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of North Carolina, and for the Laboratorie de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale for the province of Quebec. A professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she divides her time between Charlotte and Montreal and is a frequent expert witness in criminal trials.

Ruth Rendell Put On By Cunning (Inspector Wexford Mysteries) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £4.85 ISBN: B00351YESK


Sir Manuel Carmargue, one of the greatest flautists of his time, was dead. Misadventure. An old man, ankle-deep in snow, he lost his foothold in the dark, slipping into the water to be trapped under a lid of ice. Only a glove remained to point to where he lay, one of its fingers rising out of the drifts. There's nothing Chief Inspector Wexford likes better than an open-and-shut case. They're so restful. And yet there are one or two niggling doubts - and the disturbing return of Carmargue's daughter, now a considerable heiress, after an absence of nineteen years. Is Wexford going to listen to that nagging inner voice of his? And if he does, what exactly does he plan to do?

Ruth Rendell Shake Hands For Ever (Inspector Wexford Mysteries) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £5.59 ISBN: B0031RS4AW


Most people would have screamed. Mrs Hathall made no sound. She had seen death many times before, but she had never before seen a death by violence. Heavily, she plodded across the room and descended the stairs to where her son waited. 'There's been an accident,' she said. 'Your wife's dead.'Chief Inspector Wexford could discover no motive, no reason, no suspect - al he had were his own intuitive suspicions. Probably he was reading meaning where there was none; probably Angela Hathall really had picked up a stranger, and that stranger had killed her. But why such doubt? Was Wexford becoming cynical and untrusting - or was this simply one of the most ingenious crimes he had ever tackled?

Ruth Rendell A Sleeping Life [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £6.07 ISBN: B003564796


On a sultry August evening, the bloody body of a middle-aged woman is discovered beneath a hedge by a small boy. There are only two things that surprise Wexford about the murder scene. One, that the only contents of the woman’s handbag are some keys and a wallet containing nothing but some money. And two, how even in death, her deathly grey eyes possess a scornful glare.The woman turns out to be Rhoda Comfrey, but there’s no murder weapon, no apparent motive, and no one who actually cares she’s died. Wexford’s only hunch is that the clues to her murder must lie in her solitary London life. But her existence there becomes frustratingly impossible to trace.

Adam and Eve and Pinch Me went down to the river to batheAdam and Eve were drowned. Who was saved?'This old nursery rhyme is a favourite of Jerry Leach (if that is the name he is using at the time), a handsome ne'er do well, who sponges off women. Five women, unknown to each other, are his willing victims. One he even married once and abandoned, while promising to marry another. But, with the cruel irony he would be the first to recognize in that nursery rhyme, Jerry, almost accidentally, becomes the victim of one of his female prey.
'Minty Knox sees ghosts. And because this is Rendell territory, we know this will not be a supernatural thriller but rather an exploration of what happens when personal delusions collide with reality-With her usual deft touch, Ruth Rendell pulls the strands of her story together, weaving a taut and terrifying narrative which reminds us that nothing we do is without consequence, nor are those consequences ever within our control.' Val McDermid, Daily Express

Ruth Rendell A New Lease Of Death [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £4.93 ISBN: B004071TAO


‘I only know the Painter case was an open and shut affair,’ said Chief Inspector Wexford. ‘And nobody’s got a hope in hell of showing he didn’t do it.’ It’s impossible to forget the violent bludgeoning to death of an elderly lady in her home. Even more so when it’s your first murder case. Wexford believed he’d solved Mrs Primero’s murder fifteen years ago. It was no real mystery. Everyone knew Painter, her odd-job man, had done it. There had never been any doubt in anyone’s mind. Until now… Henry Archery’s son is engaged to Painter’s daughter. Only Archery can’t let the past remain buried. He wants to prove Wexford wrong, and in probing into the lives of the witnesses questioned all those years ago, he stirs up more than old ghosts.

‘You can laugh if you like,’ sighed Chief Inspector Wexford, ‘but last week I really had some sort of idea that I was going to step in and solve the case.’ It seems fitting that the final resting place of a girl’s body should be in a graveyard. But this is no peaceful burial. This is a brutal murder scene. On strict orders from his doctor, Wexford is sent to London for a break away from the pressures of the Kingsmarkham constabulary. But then he discovers his nephew Howard is heading the investigation into the macabre murder of Loveday Morgan, whose body was found abandoned in Kenbourne Cemetery.

Ruth Rendell Piranha To Scurfy And Other Stories [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £6.39 ISBN: B003RWSBEA


Nine stories and two novellas make up Ruth Rendell's latest collection.

The long title story is about a man whose life, in a sense, is a book. There are shelves in every room, packed with titles which Ambrose Ribbon has checked pedantically for mistakes of grammar and fact. Life for Ribbon, without his mother now, is lonely and obsessive. He still keeps her dressing table exactly as she had left it, the wardrobe door always so that her clothes can be seen inside, and her pink silk nightdress on the bed. There is one book too that he associates particularly with her - volume VIII of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Piranha to Scurfy. It marked a very significant moment in their relationship.In the other stories, Ruth Rendell deals with a variety of themes, some macabre, some vengeful, some mysterious, all precisely observed. The second novella, High Mysterious Union, explores a strange, erotic universe in a dream-like corner of rural England, and illustrates very atmospherically what range Ruth Rendell has as a writer.

You know what pleases you, but do you know what would disgust you?’ The discovery of Elizabeth Nightingale’s broken body in the woods near her home could not have come as a bigger shock. Called in to investigate, Chief Inspector Wexford quickly determines that the Nightingales were considered the perfect couple – wealthy, attractive and without an enemy in the world.

Ray Rhamey We the Enemy [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Amazon Media at £0.70 ISBN: B004IEA8PG


Pogo was just a cartoon character, but he got it right when he said, "We have met the enemy, and he is us." Revolving-door courts spit felons back onto streets uncaught, unreformed. Madmen and madchildren kill us with terrifying firepower. Not too many years from now, the very nature of criminal justice and self defense is changing in the Pacific Northwest-criminals compelled to tell the truth in court, guns converted to nonlethal weapons. But there's fierce opposition, and the president, in danger of losing reelection, aims to win votes by taking down the man behind it all, Noah Stone. His weapon is Jake Black, an ex Secret Service agent. Now a cold-blooded gun for hire, Jake lives an emotionless existence after his wife and little girl were killed. A fog of numbness in his mind smothers everything-especially the grief he cannot bear. Scoring a million dollars for taking care of what he sees as a con man is no problem. But the closer he gets to his target, the more he's drawn to Stone. When a treacherous attack threatens to destroy Stone's work, Jake is the one man who can save it. He faces the question of his life-who is the enemy, Noah Stone or Jake Black?

When offered the post once styled 'diocesan exorcist', the Revd Merrily Watkins - parish priest and single parent - cannot easily refuse. But the retiring exorcist, strongly objecting to women priests, not only refuses to help Merrily but ensures that she's soon exposed to the job at its most terrifying.
And things get no easier. As an early winter slices through the old city of Hereford, a body is found in the River Wye, an ancient church is desecrated, and there are signs of dark ritual on a hill overlooking the city. Meanwhile, reports of psychic unrest in the Cathedral itself - where the famous shrine of St Thomas Cantilupe lies in fragments - reflect an undying evil lying close to the heart of the Church itself.

A long time ago in galaxy far, far away a really quite good SF film, a sort of western in space, was launched. The special effects were pretty shoddy but it did have some quite good actors in it. And Mark Hammill. A second and third film that were actually the fifth and sixth films followed and they weren't quite so good but they were still quite fun (especially when the teddies got blasted by the Imperial stormtroopers). A Gollancz parody was inevitable. And here it is. An epic told in six chapters. An epic of good versus evil. Of dark versus light. Of hairy co-pilots and green gurus. Of bizarre hair styles, steel bras and camp robots. An epic that starts in the middle. And that's the original!

It's been a few years since Fiona Bristow has moved to Orcas Island. Within the small, tight-knit island community she's built up her business, a canine rescue centre that trains dogs to track missing persons. Whether they are lonely travellers on a hiking trip gone wrong or disappearances of a more sinister nature, more than once Fiona has been the last hope for those lost in Washington's vast wilderness.

Romantic entanglements are very far down on her list - and certainly not with Simon Doyle, an artist newly arrived from the mainland. Impossible rude, and impossibly handsome, he suddenly seems to be around an awful lot. But he doesn't know that Fiona harbours a terrible secret, and as her past unexpectedly catches up with her, she has to decide whether past grief will keep her from ever loving again ...Nora Roberts: Fall into her grip and she'll never let you go ...

Craig Russell Blood Eagle [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Cornerstone Digital at £6.00 ISBN: B004VS8658


Mo Hayder `A distinctive and exciting new voice in crime fiction... this is gritty, authentic and disturbing stuff.'

The first woman had her lungs ripped out. When the same gruesome ritualistic method was used again, it was clear that the same killer was responsible. But there is no precise evidence to link the two cases, except for the tantalising email. In his first crime novel, Craig Russell introduces us to a new detective hero, Jan Fabel - half-Scottish, half-German - a man of conscience and imagination. Russell has also created a richly textured scenario where the City of Hamburg plays a central role - it is a city where the old Germany combines increasingly with the new, where gangs from Turkey and the Ukraine battle for supremacy. Blood Eagle is a violently exciting thriller and Fabel's desperate attempt to solve the case before more victims are discovered, gradually uncovers layer upon layer of intrigue. How can he track a murderer who leaves no trail, whose victims seem purposefully random and whose motive reaches far beyond greed and lust, into the darkest recesses of the human soul?

His relationships with the women in his life - his mother, daughter, ex-wife, girlfriend - are becoming increasingly complicated. His professional life as head of the Hamburg murder squad is equally trying: he is attempting to resolve a case involving a female nurse who had been murdering elderly patients. Then a Senator in Hamburg's regional parliament is found dead in his expensive Rotherbaum villa. It is assumed that he has died in a bizarre sex game. Afterwards, a prominent Hamburg businessman is discovered in similar circumstances, his neck broken. A third murder in Hamburg of a detective from the Copenhagen Murder Squad reveals that there is no random factor in any of these cases. But Fabel has no immediate clue that he is dealing with the Valkyrie. A terrifyingly efficient professional killer. The ultimate Avenging Angel.

Alex Rutherford Empire of the Moghul: Ruler of the World [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Review at £9.49 ISBN: B004VF6298


Keep your enemies close, and your sons closer...
The story of the third great Moghul Emperor, Akbar, leader of a triumphant dynasty which contained the seeds of its own destruction.
Akbar, ruler of a sixth of the world's people, colossally rich and utterly ruthless, was a contemporary of Elizabeth I, but infinitely more powerful. His reign began in bloodshed when he strangled his treacherous 'milk-brother', but it ended in glory.
Akbar extended his rule over much of Asia, skillfully commanding tens of thousands of men, elephants and innovative technology, yet despite the unimaginable bloodshed which resulted his empire was based on universal religious tolerance.
However, Akbar's homelife was more complicated. He defied family, nobles and mullahs to marry a beautiful Rajput princess, whose people he had conquered; but she hated Akbar and turned Salim, his eldest son, against him. What's more, as any Moghul prince could inherit his father's crown and become Emperor, his sons were brought up to be intensely competitive and suspicious of each other: to see eachother as rivals for the greatest prize of all. And, as Salim grew to manhood, the relationship between father and son became tainted by rebellion and competition to be the greatest Moghul of them all.

Alex Rutherford is Diana Preston and her husband Michael.

C.J. Sansom Dark Fire (Matthew Shardlake 2) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Pan at £4.25 ISBN: B003O86FLI

It's 1540, three years after Shardlake's mission to Scarnsea. It is the hottest summer of the sixteenth century. Shardlake is trying to keep a low profile, believing himself to be out of favour with Thomas Cromwell but trying to maintain his London-based legal practice. He has been pulled, against his better judgement, into defending Elizabeth Wentworth, charged with murdering her cousin. But Elizabeth refuses to plead either guilty or not guilty. As a result she will be crushed under weights until she pleads or dies. Shardlake is powerless to help the girl yet she is suddenly granted a reprieve - courtesy of Cromwell. The cost of the reprieve to Shardlake is two weeks once again in the service of Cromwell. Cromwell, however, is no longer the triumphant, irresistible force he once was, not least because of the ill-fated marriage he arranged for the King with Anne of Cleves. Cromwell is running out of options, but he has one more card to play: Greek Fire, an ancient weapon considered lost long ago, which has turned up again in the hands of two alchemist brothers. This is the kind of gift to guarantee the King's favour, it is also the kind of gift that people kill for...

In the international bestseller "Roma", Steven Saylor told the story of the first thousand years of Rome by following the descendants of a single bloodline. Now, in "Empire", Saylor charts the destinies of five more generations of the Pinarius family, from the reign of the first emperor, Augustus, to the glorious height of Rome's empire under Hadrian. Through the eyes of the Pinarii, we witness the machinations of Tiberius, the madness of Caligula, the cruel escapades of Nero, and the chaos of the Year of Four Emperors in 69 A.D. The deadly paranoia of Domitian is followed by the Golden Age of Trajan and Hadrianobut even the most enlightened emperors wield the power to inflict death and destruction on a whim. "Empire" is strewn with spectacular scenes, including the Great Fire of 64 A.D. that ravaged the city, Nero's terrifying persecution of the Christians, and the mind-blowing opening games of the Colosseum. But at the novel's heart are the wrenching choices and seductive temptations faced by each new generation of the Pinarii. One unwittingly becomes the sexual plaything of the notorious Messalina. One enters into a clandestine affair with a Vestal virgin. One falls under the charismatic spell of Nero, while another is drawn into the strange new cult of those who deny the gods and call themselves Christians. However diverse their destinies and desires, all the Pinarii are united by one thing: the mysterious golden talisman called the fascinum handed down from a time before Rome existed. As it passes from generation to generation, the fascinum seems to exercise a power not only over those who wear it, but over the very fate of the empire.

Steven Saylor is the author of the popular and acclaimed historical mystery novels set in ancient Rome, the Roma sub Rosa series featuring Gordianus the Finder. His work has been widely praised for its remarkable accuracy and vivid historical detail as well as for its passion, mystery and intrigue.

Maj Sjowall The Laughing Policeman (The Martin Beck Series) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Harper Perennial at £3.99 ISBN: B002RI9TAK


The fantastic fourth classic instalment in the Martin Beck detective series from the 1960s -- the novels that have inspired all crime fiction written ever since. The Martin Beck series is widely recognised as the greatest masterpiece of crime fiction ever written. These are the original detective stories that pioneered the detective genre and inspired writers from Agatha Christie to Henning Mankell; Graham Greene to Jonathan Franzen. Translated into 35 languages, they have sold over 10 million copies around the world. Written in the 1960s, they are the work of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo -- a husband-and-wife team from Sweden. The ten novels follow the fortunes of the detective Martin Beck, whose enigmatic, taciturn character has inspired countless other policemen in crime fiction. The novels can be read separately, but do follow a chronological order, so the reader can become familiar with the characters and develop a loyalty to the series. Each book will have a new introduction in order to help bring these books to a new audience. On a cold and rainy Stockholm night, nine bus riders are gunned down by an unknown assassin. The press, anxious for an explanation for the seemingly random crime, quickly dubs him a madman. But Martin Beck of the Homicide Squad suspects otherwise: this apparently motiveless killer has managed to target one of Beck's best detectives -- and he, surely, would not have been riding that lethal bus without a reason. With its wonderfully observed lawmen, its brilliantly rendered felons and their murky Stockholm underworld, and its deftly engineered plot, 'The Laughing Policeman' has long been recognised as a classic of the police procedural.

Maj Sjowall is a poet. She lives in Sweden.
Per Wahlöö was born in Göteborg. After graduating from the University of Lund in 1946, he worked as a journalist, covering criminal and social issues for a number of newspapers and magazines. In the 1950s Wahlöö was engaged in radical political causes, activities that resulted in his deportation from Franco's Spain in 1957. After returning to Sweden, he wrote a number of television and radio plays, and was managing editor of several magazines, before becoming a full-time writer.

Douglas Skelton Glasgow's Black Heart [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Mainstream Digital at £7.99 ISBN: B004TSY09Q


An authoritative catalogue of Glasgow-based crime from the late eighteenth century to the present day
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland. It is a city of culture, of impressive architecture, enterprise and endeavour, and is one of warm-hearted, generous people. But it also has a dark side. Beneath the busy streets, the Victorian sandstone and urban trendiness lies a black heart that beats in rhythm with the roar of the traffic and the echo of footsteps on concrete. It is a black heart pumped by greed and lust, violence and murder. And it has beaten since the city first sprang up on that dear, green place on the banks of the Molendinar Burn. This is the epic story of Glasgow crime. Beginning in 1624 when the Tolbooth was built at Glasgow Cross to house the courts and town jail, author Douglas Skelton covers four centuries of Glasgow’s hidden history, tracing the formation of the first paid police force in Britain, the Black Assizes of the circuit court and the formation of the city’s own High Court of Justiciary. Here you will find the pimps and pushers, gangsters and gangleaders, rioters and robbers who flooded the veins of the city. Famous felons rub shoulders with their less notorious, but equally vicious, counterparts. Here also are the thief-takers, cops, lawyers and judges who tried to stem the gushing flow, some with more success than others. These stories may not be what the City Fathers would like to see on Glasgow’s CV, but they are as much a part of its traditions and its legacy as the fish, the bell and the tree.

Douglas Skelton is a Glasgow-born journalist and author who has been chronicling crime for 20 years. He has written a number of true-crime books, including Dark Heart, Blood on the Thistle, Devil's Gallop and Frightener. He lives in Cumnock, East Ayrshire.

Neal Stephenson Zodiac [Kindle Edition] Pbk published May 2011 by Grove Press at £6.11 ISBN: B002PY7M46


In Boston, two centuries after the Tea Party, harbour dumping is still a favourite local sport, only these days it's major corporations piping toxic wastes into the water. Environmentalist and professional-pain-in-the-ass Sangaman Taylor is Boston's latter-day Paul Revere, spreading the word from a 40-horsepower Zodiac raft. Embarrassing powerful corporations in highly telegenic ways is the perfect method of making enemies, and Taylor has a collection that would do any rabble-rouser proud.
After his latest exploit, he's wanted by the FBI, possibly by the Mafia, and definitely by a group of Satanist angel-dust heads who think he's looking for a PCP factory, not PCB contamination. Pretty soon dodging bullets is the least of Taylor's problems - because somewhere out there are an unhinged genetic engineer and a lab-concocted bacterium that could destroy all ocean life - and that's just for starters.
Frightening, funny, fast and furious, Zodiac is thrilling speculative fiction torn straight from today's headlines, the author of Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon at his brilliant best.

Neal Stephenson is the author of The Baroque Trilogy (Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System Of The World). His other books include Cryptonomicon, Snow Crash, The Diamond Age, and Zodiac, as well as Cobweb and Interface, written in collaboration with Frederick George. Winner of the 2003 Arthur C.

Jon Stock Games Traitors Play [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Blue Door at £8.99 ISBN: B004P1JERK


Re-inventing the spy story for the 21st Century.
John Le Carre meets Jason Bourne!
Salim Dhar is the world's most wanted terrorist. The CIA is under pressure to hunt him down, after he narrowly failed to kill the US president. The borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan are the target of relentless drone strikes. Echelon, the West's intelligence analysis network, is in meltdown, monitoring all channels for the faintest trace of Dhar. But no one can find him. Only Daniel Marchant, renegade MI6 officer, knows where he is.
Marchant has been living in Marrakech, listening to the traditional Berber storytellers as they enthral tourists with tales from The Arabian Nights. Marchant believes that Dhar has shunned technology, retreating to old customs:coded messages for Dhar are being embedded in ancient narratives.
When a man flees from the square, Marchant pursues him up into the Atlas Mountains, where he sees an unmarked military helicopter take off and head east. Is someone shielding Dhar to perpetrate an act of proxy terrorism on the West? Or is the CIA right when it claims to have killed him?
To discover the truth, Marchant must be recruited by Moscow. But Marcus Fielding, erudite Chief of MI6, doubts that his young intelligence officer has the mental strength to be a double agent. It's a role that will require him to believe his late father was a traitor, an allegation that Marchant fought long and hard to dispel. Now he must rekindle those rumours and confront dark truths about his own loyalties. He must also work with Lakshmi Meena, the CIA's beautiful new liaison officer in London. Can he ever trust a woman-or an American-again after being betrayed by her predecessor?
As Britain braces itself for an airborne terrorist attack, Marchant survives torture in Morocco and India in his bid to find and stop Dhar. Will family ties ultimately prove more binding than ideology? In an absorbing thriller that combines the nuances of Cold War Le Carre with the ejector-seat excitement of Top Gun, Marchant discovers that treachery is the greatest game of all.

Prior to becoming a writer, Jon Stock was Weekend editor of the Telegraph. He is the author of three novels, ‘The Riot Act,’ ‘The Cardamom Club’ and ‘Dead Spy Running.’ He is also a columnist with The Week magazine in India. He lives in Wiltshire with his wife and three young children.

The Daemon is now firmly in control and moving towards its endgame, using an expanding network of real-world, dispossessed darknet operatives to tear civilization apart and build it anew. As the global economy begins to fail, the world's most powerful organizations - monolithic corporations, complete with armies of their own - prepare to fight their unseen enemy. When a brutal civil war breaks out in the United States, former detective Pete Sebeck, now the Daemon's most powerful though reluctant operative, must lead a small band of enlightened humans to protect the new world order.

Daniel Suarez is a software consultant to Fortune 500 companies. He originally self-published Daemon when rejected by mainstream publishers and agents. It then exploded onto the blogosphere, which combined with Amazon raves and a feature in Wired magazine turned the book deservedly into a runaway bestseller. He lives in Pasadena, California.

At some point after midnight a dog barks. The family wakes the next morning to a horrific discovery: an unimaginably gruesome murder has taken place in their home. The household reverberates with shock, not least because the guilty party is surely still among them. Jack Whicher of Scotland Yard, the most celebrated detective of his day, reaches Road Hill House a fortnight later. He faces an unenviable task: to solve a case in which the grieving family are the suspects.The murder provokes national hysteria. The thought of what might be festering behind the closed doors of respectable middle-class homes - scheming servants, rebellious children, insanity, jealousy, loneliness and loathing - arouses fear and a kind of excitement. But when Whicher reaches his shocking conclusion there is uproar and bewilderment.
A true story that inspired a generation of writers such as Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle, this has all the hallmarks of the classic murder mystery - a body; a detective; and, a country house steeped in secrets. In "The Suspicions of Mr Whicher", Kate Summerscale untangles the facts behind this notorious case, bringing it back to vivid, extraordinary life.

Kate Summerscale is the author of the bestselling The Queen of Whale Cay, which won a Somerset Maugham award and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Biography Award. She has also judged various literary competitions including the Booker Prize. She lives in London.

Edwin Thomas Chains Of Albion (Reluctant Adv/Martin Jerrold 2) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Transworld Digital at £5.59 ISBN: B004TSXRHC


Book Two of the reluctant adventures of Lieutenant Martin Jerrold
July 1806. Commanding a prison hulk full of French captives, Lieutenant Martin Jerrold thinks his war can’t get much better. He’s far away from the more life threatening aspects of naval service and he can keep his mistress close to hand. It all seems too good to last.
And so it proves. When one of the prisoners goes missing, Jerrold’s comfortable world is suddenly turned upside down. Ordered by the First Lord of the Admiralty to recapture the Frenchman at any cost, he finds himself racing across England: from the stinking marshes of Chatham to the wilds of Dartmoor and the fashionable resort of Brighton.
But what makes this prisoner so damned important? At the Post Office, Jerrold’s old friend Mr Nevell is curious; so too are politicians from either side, including the cunning Tory leader Spencer Perceval. Even the seductive Princess Caroline takes an unexpected interest.
As Jerrold – dogged by his usual bad timing, bad luck and bad behaviour – closes in on his elusive quarry, he uncovers a devilish web of treachery and deceit stretching back twenty years and ensnaring the most exalted members of society. And in hot pursuit are those who will stop at nothing to stop him...

Edwin Thomas grew up in West Germany, Belgium and America before returning to England to study history at Lincoln College, Oxford. His conclusion to the short story ‘Death by the Invisible Hand’ was published in The Economist in 1997, and the first chapter of The Blighted Cliffs was runner-up in the 2001 Crime Writers’ Association Début Dagger Award for new fiction. The first two installments of the adventures of Martin Jerrold, The Blighted Cliffs and The Chains of Albion, are available in Bantam paperback.

Not many men emerged from Trafalgar without an ounce of credit, but Lieutenant Martin Jerrold R.N. managed it. In February 1806, he is given one last chance to redeem his reputation and dispatched to Dover.
Things don’t augur well when, walking off the effects of a night in the tavern, he stumbles across a corpse lying on the beach. And they take a distinct turn for the worse when he is suspected of murder. With the local magistrate determined to see him hang, Jerrold knows clearing his name will require an improbable reversal of his miserable fortunes. Somewhere in Dover’s twisted streets, someone must know something. But he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems in a town where smuggling is a way of life…
Distrusted by his superiors, set upon by suspiciously well-informed thugs, attacked by the French at sea but finding sympathy in the less-than-respectable arms of Isobel, Martin Jerrold has two weeks to save his skin – or perish in the attempt.
The Blighted Cliffs marks the beginning of a rich, swashbuckling adventure series, featuring a reluctant hero for whom life rarely turns out as he intends.

John Hartley Williams,J.H Mystery In Spiderville [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Vintage Digital at £5.59 ISBN: B004YE6OD0


A fascinating debut which combines madcap surrealism, film-noir and eroticism

The Times
‘This is the evil twin of the novel: a form locked in the literary basement that deserves to see the light of day’

Alongside the names of James Hadley Chase and Erle Stanley Gardner we must now add that of John Hartley Williams - though Mystery in Spiderville is no run-of-the-mill hard-boiled thriller. The decor is by Dali, the plot is a mixture of Breton and Burroughs, and the main character - the protean and unkillable Spider Rembrandt - has six toes, sleeps in a grave and dreams of congress with the pert and playful Reedy Buttons. Sucked into the vortex of Spider's philandering mind is a narrator - sometimes Spider's adversary, sometimes his victim - who lies upon a bed brooding on the absence of a nameless, brown-haired woman. He, too, is protean: full of passionate longings and homicidal tendencies. A surrealist film-noir that blends the forensic with the erotic, the seedy penny-dreadful and the lyric prose-poem, Mystery in Spiderville is one of the strangest, strongest and most arresting fictional debuts in years.

John Hartley Williams has published six poetry collections, most recently Spending Time with Walter (2001). He teaches English at the Free University of Berlin, where he has been since 1976. This is his first novel.

Colin Wilson The Serial Killers: A Study in the Psychology of Violence [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Virgin Digital at £4.60 ISBN: B0050OMJ0K


In the 1980s, American law enforcement agencies investigating the rising number of ‘motiveless murders’ stumbled upon a worrying possibility – what if all these crimes were being committed not by many, but by a relatively small number of people? One killer, multiple victims. The serial killer.
As the number of serial killers worldwide has risen steadily – from the emergence of Jack the Ripper in 1888 to Harold Shipman and Ivan Milat, the backpacker killer of the Australian outback – the need to understand this disturbing phenomenon is becoming more urgent. But to understand why serial murder is on the rise, we must first understand how the serial killer thinks.
Using privileged access to the world’s first National Centre for the Analysis of Violent Crime, Colin Wilson and Donald Seaman bring you this incisive study of the psychology of serial killers and the motives behind their crimes.
From childhood traumas to issues of frustration, fear and fantasy, discover what turns an ordinary human being into a compulsive killer.

Colin Wilson has been a major influence in the area of true crime. His career has spanned the publication of over 60 books, including The Occult, A Criminal History of Mankind and From Atlantis To The Sphinx.

Tim Winton In The Winter Dark [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Picador at £6.07 ISBN: B004ZX9K8Q


When a man dreams things from the past, you’d think he’d be able to rearrange them in new sequences to please himself. But no. In my dreams, it all happens as it happened, and I see it and be it again and again and the confusion never wears off. People drift to the valley called the Sink out of loneliness, hardship or an affinity with the land. It is an isolated place, with a swamp and an old white bridge and the forest encroaching from all sides. The solitude is tangible. But when a mysterious creature is suddenly on the loose, killing livestock and preying on everyone’s deepest fears, four inhabitants find themselves unexpectedly in one another’s company – with chilling results.
From the author of The Riders and Dirt Music, both shortlisted for the Booker prize. In print by Picador. Night falls. In a lonely valley called the Sink, four people prepare for a quiet evening. Then in his orchard, Murray Jaccob sees a moving shadow. Across the swamp, his neighbour Ronnie watches her lover leave and feels her baby roll inside her. And on the veranda of the Stubbses house, a small dog is torn screaming from its leash by something unseen. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Tim Winton was born in Perth in 1960 and has written novels, collections of stories, non-fiction and books for children. He has been twice shortlisted for the Booker Prize, for The Riders (1995) and Dirt Music (2002).

Peter Woolf The Damage Done [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by Transworld Digital at £6.07 ISBN: B0034FJGI0


'For almost all my life, I've been the person you crossed the street to avoid...' Peter Woolf's life of drinking, drug-taking and thieving had begun before most people leave school. Spending most of his adult life in prison made no difference to him: life itself offered him no hope. Today, amazingly, Peter is clean and has not reoffended since a life-changing meeting in 2002 when he came face to face with some of his victims. "The Damage Done" is a searingly honest and gritty portrayal of a man ensconced in an endless cycle of drugs, violence, prison and depravity who, one Tuesday afternoon in a glass room at Pentonville prison, was forced to confront all that he had destroyed.

Peter Woolf is fifty and was a career criminal until five years ago. He is now married and lives in Norfolk. He regularly gives lectures to police forces and other groups up and down the country on Restorative Justice. He is employed by the Metropolitan Police as a Restorative consultant, working in North London with prolific and priority offenders.

Kate Workman Rendezvous at the Populaire: A Novel of Sherlock Holmes [Kindle Edition] Pbk published June 2011 by MX Publishing at £6.44 ISBN: B004XP10TI


Sherlock Holmes has retired. After a cruel accident during a fruitless chase for Moriarty, Holmes is maimed badly enough that he declares he will no longer solve the crimes of the London streets. But then a letter comes. A letter imploring him to investigate the Opera Populaire's ghost. The spectre everyone has heard rumours of, but only one has seen. The Phantom, whose maniacal laughter was heard just before the enormous once-majestic chandelier crashed down. Holmes is intrigued and, despite his injury, travels with Watson to Paris to bring this Phantom to justice. But the love triangle, the maze within a maze of the building itself, and the others' assumptions that Holmes's mental capacity has been lessened by his hampered physical state will all take their toll on Sherlock Holmes. And the more he finds, the more he realizes that he cannot simply bring the Phantom to justice. After all, with some cases, the answer is so much deeper than a matter of right and wrong.

Jacques Yonnet Paris Noir: The Secret History of a City City Noir [Kindle Edition] Pbk published April 2011 by Dedalus at £6.92 ISBN: B004S9OI0W


"The greatest book ever written about Paris" - Raymond Queneau. "Among the books you must read before you die is "Paris Noir" by Jacques Yonnet" - Raphael Sorin. In "Paris Noir", Yonnet tells is about some of the darker quarters of Paris on the left bank of the Seine, centred on the place Mauberge and the rue Mouffetard, as seen from his own experience. It is mainly written during the 1940s, under the Occupation and in the immediate post-war period; there is a certain amount dealing with the resistance, but the main thrust of the book is a Paris that existed between the wars - and is well known from the film noir - but has since disappeared. It concentrates on the people, rather than places, a mixture of ordinary workers, tradesmen, artists, con-men and criminals. It invests the area with a sense of mystery including occasional supernatural events; it is extremely well written, often using the language of the inhabitants of the area. For Dedalus, it is the perfect counterfoil for J. K. Huysman's "Parisian Sketches", which we published in 2004 which showed the darker side of Paris pre Haussman's big boulevards.
