A Strange and Murderous Air

Jill Fortune disappears the same day Ramsay Keiller is shot dead. Was she a witness – or the killer? Fifty years after his blues band made the Top Forty, Dan Swann is still causing ripples. He has a message for the world, but the world isn’t listening.


A woman is dead and a man is missing. What’s the connection with the death of a schoolboy in 1978?

A Saintly Grave Disturbed

An archaeological dig at Barbury Abbey unearths more than a medieval skeleton when an excavation turns deadly.

The Shame of Innocence

Two teenage girls are found dead and a third girl goes missing. Who can Lincoln trust when even his colleagues are corrupt?

The Promise of Salvation

A grim discovery in Greywood Forest sets off a chain of events leading to murder — and a grieving mother takes the law into her own hands.
