Cynthia Harrod-Eagles Dynasty 27: The Restless Sea (Morland Dynasty) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published September 2011 by Hachette Digital at £5.49 ISBN: B005CIWN0A


England in 1912 still bears itself with Edwardian confidence, but strikes, protests and public violence reveal the fault lines as society evolves under the spur of new ideas and technology. Among the many branches of the Morland family, Jessie and Violet, childhood friends, learn to cope with the surprises of marriage and motherhood and their different strata of society. Jack, disappointed in love, loses himself in designing aircraft and training airmen for the newly formed flying corps. And Anne, exhausted by the Suffragette struggle, seeks comfort in her friendship with an unconventional young woman. The Titanic tragedy shakes the confidence of a people used to conquering nature with engineering; and all the while, the troubled nations of Europe edge closer to a war no-one wants, but which seems inevitable.

Cynthia Harrod-Eagles is the author of the contemporary Bill Slider Mystery series as well as the Morland Dynasty novels. Her passions are music, wine, horses, architecture and the English countryside.

David Hewson The Sacred Cut (Nic Costa Mysteries 3) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published September 2011 by Pan at £4.34 ISBN: B004M18N98

The third in Hewson's stunning crime series set in Rome

For the first time in decades the Eternal City is paralysed by a blizzard. And a gruesome discovery is made in the Pantheon, one of Rome's most ancient and revered architectural monuments ... Covered by softly falling snow is the body of a woman - her back horribly mutilated. And before Nic Costa and Cianni Peroni of the Questura can begin a formal investigation, the US embassy has brought in its own people - FBI agents who want the case closed down as quickly and discreetly as possible.
But Costa is determined to find out why the enquiry is so sensitive - and as the FBI grudgingly admits that this corpse is not the first, the mutilations of the woman's body point to Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man - and to a conspiracy so sinister, and buried so deep, that only two people know its true, crazed meaning ...

David Hewson is a weekly columnist for the Sunday Times. Following A Season for the Dead and The Villa of Mysteries, this is the third in his Italian crime series featuring Detective Nic Costa. The author lives in Kent.

Jack Hight Eagle (Saladin Trilogy 1) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published September 2011 by John Murray at £6.99 ISBN: B004O0U5AW


Salah ad-Din, or Saladin as he is known to the Franks, was a Kurd, the son of a despised people, and yet he became Sultan of Egypt and Syria. He united the peoples of Allah, recaptured Jerusalem, and drove the Crusaders to the very edge of the sea. He battled, and in the end tamed King Richard the Lionheart, who well deserved his savage name. He was a great man, the greatest man that I ever knew, but when I first met him, he was only a skinny child... - The Chronicle of Yahya al-Dimashq
But alongside the legend of Saladin there is another story. When the Crusader army is routed beneath the walls of Damascus in 1148, a young Saxon named John is captured and enslaved. He is bought by Yusuf, a slight, bookish boy, for the price of a pair of sandals.
And so begins the story of two enemies brought together by fate and of a friendship that will change the face of the Holy Land. Timid Yusuf will grow up to become the warrior Saladin, nicknamed ‘the Eagle’; John will first teach his young master the art of war, before returning west to serve first the King of Jerusalem and then King Richard himself.
From spectacular set-piece battles to the political manoeuvrings of the corrupt Crusader court, from the brutality of single combat to the sophistication of Islamic life, this is the first in a remarkable trilogy that will chart the story of the greatest leader the Middle East has ever known.

Jack Hight is an American historian. He lives with his wife and dog in Washington DC where he is currently finishing the Saladin Trilogy. Hight’s acclaimed first novel, Siege, is also available from John Murray.

Susan Hill The Various Haunts Of Men (Simon Serrailler 1) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published July 2011 by Vintage Digital at £5.11 ISBN: B0055CS3X4


A lonely woman of 53 vanishes in fog - hidden in her cupboard is an expensive pair of cuff-links with a note: 'To You, with all possible love from your devoted, Me'.
A fat 22-year-old never returns from an early morning walk - is her disappearance connected with her girlish crush on Dava, the blue-eyed 'therapist' whose speciality is 'inner harmony'? Experienced policemen know that most missing persons either turn up or go missing on purpose. But fresh young D. S.

Susan Hill The Risk of Darkness (Simon Serrailler 3) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published July 2011 by Vintage Digital at £4.84 ISBN: B0055CS2A8


Simon Serrailler's story began in "The Various Haunts of Men" (about a serial killer) and continued with "The Pure in Heart" (about a kidnapped schoolboy). Susan Hill is not afraid to tackle difficult issues, nor to face up to the realities of stress in an ordinary English police station. Her third crime novel, "The Risk of Darkness", even more compulsive and convincing, follows up the child abduction and explores the crazy grief of a widowed husband, a derangement, which turns to obsession and threats, violence and terror. Meanwhile, handsome, introverted Simon Serrailler, whose cool reserve has broken the hearts of several women, finds his own heart troubled by the newest recruit to the Cathedral staff: a feisty female Anglican priest with red hair ...
"The Risk of Darkness" is packed with action and adventure. Like "Various Haunts", it hinges on a terrific twist, which comes as a complete surprise to the reader; and like "The Pure in Heart", it deals in depth with complex daily problems.

Susan Hill is an award-winning novelist. She wrote Mrs de Winter, the bestselling sequel to Rebecca, and the ghost story The Woman in Black, which was adapted for the stage and has been running in the West End for 18 years. Her most recent books are a collection of exquisite short stories, The Boy Who Taught the Beekeeper to Read, and the highly successful crime novels, The Various Haunts of Men and The Pure in Heart.

Once again, Susan Hill creates a community, with detail so sharp and convincing that readers feel that these people are their neighbours. And that terror and evil are always in their midst....

The first book in the Fang-in-Cheek Mystery series
The sight of the blood covered fangs exploded from her deep memory like a ball through a plate glass window. The man had bitten Bobby, torn into him like a barbequed rib on the Fourth of July.
Women are going missing in Los Angeles. Two have been found mutilated and dead. And Madison Rose would have been the next victim if it hadn't been for Doug and Dodi Dedham. They saved her life that terrible night. And that's how she discovered what the harmless-looking, gray-haired couple really were - vampires.
Incredulous, terrified, and reluctantly fascinated, Madison gradually learns about the vampire way of life - and how the killer is putting their peaceful community at risk by posing as one of them. Despite the obvious danger, Madison helps the Dedhams and LAPD Detective Notchey piece together the clues to catch the killer. And there's a high price to pay if she dares to reveal their existence - her life.

Born in Massachusetts, Sue Ann moved with her family to Southern California when she was eight. In her late twenties and early thirties, she lived in various places such as Massachusetts, Maine, Arizona, and San Francisco, finally settling once again in Southern California.
Sue Ann heard the siren call of writing early in her life, but did not make the commitment to become a novelist until about 1995. After completing two novels (still unpublished), she turned her attention to the mystery genre, and fell in love. She continues to write both mysteries and general fiction, as well as short stories and occasional poetry, and belongs to two very supportive writers' associations: Sisters In Crime, and Mystery Writers of America.

Neal James Threads of Deceit [Kindle Edition] Pbk published September 2011 by Pneuma Springs Publishing at £5.14 ISBN: B005KLSSK8


James Poynter is a young man out for revenge. Set up for a crime which he did not commit, and by someone whom he felt he could trust implicitly, his sole focus becomes one of retribution against his former employers.
His future at Brodsworth Textiles disintegrated one Friday evening prior to his wedding, when conscientiousness overtook him and he returned to the factory after work to rectify an error in his paperwork. What he discovered that night changed his life forever and set off a chain of events which sent him spiralling downwards, and out of a job which had promised so much.
Murder, deception, drug trafficking and embezzlement combine to derail the futures of everyone connected to the company, and set off a chase for the man at the centre of a plot so intricately woven, that the forces of law and order in several countries are thwarted at every turn.

Neal James began writing in 2007 when a series of short stories found favour on a number of international writing sites. Since then, he has released two novels and an anthology of short stories. ‘Threads of Deceit’, his fourth production in as many years, draws on the eighteen years he spent working within the textile industry. As an accountant for over three decades, he has drawn on his background to provide an insight into much of the substance required in the creation of his writing to date. He lives in the East Midlands with his wife and family.

Bill James Full of Money [Kindle Edition] Pbk published July 2011 by Severn House Digital at £8.02 ISBN: B005C4NZWO


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.

Susanna Jones The Earthquake Bird [Kindle Edition] Pbk published September 2011 by Picador at £5.59 ISBN: B005I4UAT4


‘Early this morning, several hours before my arrest, I was woken by an earth tremor. I mention the incident not to suggest that there was a connection – that somehow the fault lines in my life came crashing together in a form of a couple of policemen – for in Tokyo we have a quake like this every month. I am simply relating the sequence of events as it happened. It has been an unusual day and I would hate to forget anything . . .’ So begins The Earthquake Bird, a haunting novel set in Japan which reveals a murder on its first page and takes its readers into the mind of the chief suspect, Lucy Fly – a young, vulnerable English girl living and working in Tokyo as a translator. As Lucy is interrogated by the police she reveals her past to the reader, and it is a past which is dangerously ambiguous and compromising . . . Why did Lucy leave England for the foreign anonymity of Japan ten years before, and what exactly had prompted her to sever all links with her family back home? She was the last person to see the murdered girl alive, so why was she not more forthcoming about the circumstances of their last meeting? As Lucy’s story unfolds, it emerges that secrets, both past and present, obsess her waking life. A novel imbued with the chill of The Wasp Factory and the shock of The Sculptress, this is the debut of a major new talent.

Susanna Jones has worked as a translator in Tokyo for several years. This is her first novel and she is currently working on a second. She now lives in Brighton and visits Japan regularly.

A serial killer is on the loose in the Vatican in the run-up to the Conclave

The novel takes place in the days following the death of Pope John Paul II, when 115 cardinals have to be called to the Vatican in order to take part in the Conclave to elect the new Pope. With Rome under siege to foreign press and thousands of mourners, the last thing it needs is a serial killer on the loose. Paola Dicanti is a profiler who works with the Italian police - she has been put in charge of profiling serial killers in a department of one ie herself. She is untested and her experience of serial killers is, as yet, theoretical. This is until she is called to the church of Santa Maria in the Vatican state. A cardinal has been found murdered, his eyes destroyed, his hands cut off. It seems that this is not the first victim - another cardinal was found in similar circumstances but the authorities didn't want a scandal. Recovering from a bitter affair with her boss, Paola begins to build her profile using information from the scene of the crime, from the autopsy, and from forensic evidence. She is helped in this by Anthony Fowler, a priest from the States. But it turns out that Fowler is no ordinary priest - he clearly has links to the CIA, and knows a lot about the serial killer than Dicanti could ever have guessed. The situation is complicated further when a young female journalist intercepts tapes that were meant to be sent to the press, putting her life in danger.

Phyliss Karas Where's Whitey? [Kindle Edition] Pbk published July 2011 by Tonto Books at £6.07 ISBN: B0054ZE7K0


Writer Kevin Weeks was top Lieutenant to James 'Whitey' Bulger, head of the Boston Mafia and who has now been on the run for 15 years. On the Most Wanted list, Whitey was second only to Osama bin Laden and still has a two million dollar reward on his head for information leading to his capture. This book is a story of murder, friendship and loyalty within the mob, using many situations that Weeks omitted from Brutal. The story is all based on fact, making it all the more intriguing, and using insider knowledge to more than hint toward the whereabouts of the FBI's Most Wanted. When Joey Donahue is released from prison after serving six years for racketeering and crimes committed as deputy to the infamous Boston Irish Mob boss and psychopathic murderer James 'Whitey' Bulger, he is determined to stay clear of the life of crime that has supported him for the past twenty-five years. After a year of trying unsuccessfully to find a job due to his notorious association with Bulger, Joey finally surrenders to the temptation of a friend's offer to join him in a fast score; a simple robbery of a drug dealer that should pay the bills until he finds a viable job. The robbery turns out to be a sting operation set up by the FBI for the express purpose of forcing Joey to cooperate in the frustratingly unsuccessful search for his onetime mentor. The last confirmed sighting of Bulger was in London in 2002; in December 2010, he'll have evaded the FBI for 16 years and will recently have turned 81 years old. It is speculated that Bulger is also the inspiration for the ruthless crime kingpin Francis 'Frank' Costello, played by Jack Nicholson in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning film The Departed

Kevin Weeks has featured on: 60 Minutes (US) in March 2006. In June 2009, he was the main contributor on a special Dateline NBC show discussing the trial of FBI agent John Connolly who, because of Kevin's testimony, was convicted of murder. He has also been the main focus of shows on FBI Most Wanted, Fox & Friends, Biography Channel, National Geographic and the History Channel.
