Ace detective Avinash Roy arrives at a sleepy hill station in Sikkim in the fervent hope that holidaying at a secluded Buddhist monastery up in the mountains will work as a perfect antidote to his jaded, city-weary nerves. And surprisingly, it does. The crisp mountain air and long walks through undulating valleys not only rejuvenates him, but also rekindles his libido, much to the pleasure of his wife. On their last night, Roy is faced with a strange request from the Head Lama of the monastery. A rare, invaluable manuscript, the very existence of which is a secret, is missing from the underground vaults of the monastery. Could Roy retrieve the treasure without others knowing anything about it? As Roy agrees to help the senior monk, he soon realizes that the serene ambience of the place could well be just an illusion. Beneath its placid surface lurk intrigues, conspiracies, unbridled passion, ambition, religious extremism and elemental fear. By the end of of it all, Roys very life is in grave danger, hanging by a thread. Weaving natural beauty with spine-chilling suspense, Murder in the Monastery is an unputdownable read!

Lesley Cookman's bestselling series featuring amateur sleuth Libby Sarjeant is back for its eleventh instalment. A jewelled Anglo-Saxon reliquary has mysteriously appeared on a website, apparently containing a relic of St Eldreda herself. The nuns at St Eldreda’s Abbey are understandably curious, and invite Libby Sarjeant to look into the matter in more depth. Fascinated by the story, Libby’s friend Peter obtains permission to mount ‘Murder In The Monastery’, a play based on St Eldreda’s story, excitingly set in the ruins of the original monastery. Unfortunately for Peter’s plans, a real body is discovered, and Libby and her friend Fran find out that this is sadly not the first. Together, Libby and Fran dive into their investigations, to hopefully find the link between the relic, St Eldreda, and the pile of bodies.

Imagine being called in to investigate a bizarre murder at The Monastery of the Holy Spirit in a small English town, and finding the corpse in a sack in the lake - together with an assortment of animals.

But Kofel’s disturbing defense would not only rock the future of the upscale Dade County academy, it would also sound an alarm that would resonate all the way to the Vatican, making it one of the most sensational and controversial crimes in Florida history. What happened on that dark night in Holy Cross was unspeakable enough. The deeper the investigation got, the more sordid and disturbing the story became.

People used to come to the small Greek island of Palassos for the historic ruins. Now they come to take drugs and party all night. But the horrific ritual murder of a boy in the grounds of an old monastery brings back memories of two similar deaths in the mid-1970s, and of a mysterious cult who once dwelt in the island's interior, memories the island has tried hard to forget. As Nikos, the police chief who has been persuaded back to his home island for the final years of his career, begins his investigation, two Brits arrive on the island: the bestselling crime writer Kitty Carson, on a break from the pressures of work and her strained marriage, and Jason, an aspiring writer with a secret of his own. When a second body is discovered - further endangering the island's lucrative tourist trade - these three characters are thrown together, as the gruesome secrets of the past begin to emerge. Brilliantly paced, and featuring a memorable cast of characters, The Black Monastery is a blistering portrait of paradise gone wrong.
