He says he’s the killer. You know he’s lying. You just don’t know why. One freezing December night, the body of young, vulnerable, Lizzie Barnsley is found on the side of an isolated canal. When blood from her stiletto heel matches that on a wound on the head of Peter Box, police swiftly declare him the prime suspect in her murder. Criminal lawyer, Dan Grant, is called in to provide Peter Box’s legal defence, along with investigator, Jayne Brett. They need answers from Box – but he’s not talking. As they dig deeper into the case, they discover that this brutal slaying is just the latest in a series of deaths in the Northern town of Highford, starting with the murder of teenager Rosie Smith a decade ago. Blood spatter linked her stepfather, Sean Martin, to the crime – so why did Peter Box try to claim he’d killed young Rosie? As the investigation deepens, and more murders along the towpaths come to light – murders that can’t be linked to Peter Box – Jayne and Dan realise that they have stumbled onto a dark conspiracy in their little town. It’s clear Peter has something to hide, but is he a killer? Grant and Brett are plunged into a race against time to uncover the truth… before a twisted psychopath claims another victim. An unputdownable, twisty and completely gripping legal crime thriller. Fans of Angela Marsons, Steve Cavanagh and John Grisham will be hooked until the very last page.

Does evil exist? Walter, a renowned archaeologist, struggles to make sense of what is happening in Peru. There, deep within a jungle temple compound, an oppressive force has emerged. In the shadow of such depravity, Walter will learn that true evil does exist—and he’s about to experience its many faces and incarnations. The scholar’s curiosity wrestles with that inner voice, telling him to be weary of the darkness lurking in the shadows. Amid all his questions and fears, Walter knows one thing as certainty: unless it can be stopped or contained or destroyed, this entity will consume everything and everyone in its path. How can any man hope to combat this level of evil? Before he realizes it, Walter is consumed by darkness and let loose a horrible evil upon his family and the world. They are not alone. This evil pits neighbor against neighbor, husband against wife, parent against child, and turns friends into enemies as it turns their nightmares into reality. Will their love be enough to vanquish this much hatred—or will they need a power beyond their own to overcome it?

The guard at the city gates does not attempt to stop the stranger entering Nuthollia, for his job is to keep people inside the city and no person would enter the city voluntarily unless he were an agent of Grimlindus. Nuthollia, the capital of Neuthonia, is no longer a trading metropolis. Its remaining inhabitants are usually hiding indoors, trying to escape Grimlindus's violent soldiersthe tall blond northerners, bandit warriors and Knights of Destruction, as well as goblins, hobgoblins, kobolds and ogres from further east on the steppes. While contact with these soldiers is dangerous and unpredictable, the soldiers do keep the city's economy moving, the trade continuing. So Nuthollia's inhabitants, the original Neuthonics as well as countless released prisoners-of-war, attempt to earn a meagre living in fear and dread. The stranger is rnwulf, the tall barbarian who had been learning sword-skills in the cold hills of the Borderlands. He is dressed in heavy furs. His long, straight, black hair is tied back by a broad cloth that completely conceals his forehead and from which hangs three beaded feathers. His heavy broadsword is strapped to his back, partially buried within his fur coat, while a number of knives are strapped to his chest and belt. A two-headed tomahawk hangs from his belt. He is accompanied by Caleb, the huge wolf that is as large as a small pony and which has a thick mane of grey fur. Man and wolf survey the cold, snow-covered streets, looking beyond the unhappy houses to the dark palace standing on a hill near the centre of the city. They turn away from it and head into one of the darker and less inviting neighbourhoods, where even Grimlindus's soldiers would think twice before entering. The houses are closer together than elsewhere; the streets disappear into narrow alleyways and blind corners. Open doorways and boarded windows show that many of the residences are empty of normal occupation. However, a quick survey inside would reveal hiding squatters, ruffians, thieves and muggers. The man and wolf stop in front of a building that is deep within this neighbourhood. This building is similar to all the others, dismal and grey. It has a heavy steel door with a small window at face height, covered by a shutter. The man thumps on the door and the shutter is pulled back, revealing two dark, slanted eyes. "What do you want?" says the bouncer. "Where are your mistresses?" asks rnwulf, with a heavy, northern accent. "They are busy. Who wants to know?" "I was sent by Cleosius the warlord, to purchase something which was stolen from him. They are expecting me." The shutter is slid shut and rnwulf hears muted discussions behind it. The shutter slides open again. "You are early!" snaps the voice and the shutter slams closed. rnwulf thumps on the door again, his blows echoing inside. The shutter is pulled back again. "Can I wait inside?" he asks. The door opens, revealing a seven-and-a-half foot monstrosity, which bends over inside the small front room; its hairy frame fills up the doorway. Bugbear! thinks rnwulf, staring at the hairy giant-goblin, which would tower over one of its smaller goblin or hobgoblin cousins. "Come inside," it snarls, "but the wolf stays out there." After re-locking the door, the bugbear leads rnwulf along a dimly lit corridor, before arriving at a small room, furnished only with a hard-backed chair. "The mistresses are busy, the bugbear growls, but I will send someone to fetch them when they are, um, finished. Would you like a drink while you are waiting?" rnwulf waves the bugbear away and sits on the chair. In a moment, he becomes completely motionless, his keen eyes surveying every inch of the room. He waits, becoming tenser as he looks at the low ceiling and the walls. After a short time he stands up, goes to the door and tries the handle, finding it locked. H

Fresh from a tour promoting her last case, reclusive true crime writer Lydia Strong receives an anonymous cry for help, begging her to find and protect Tatiana Quinn, "and all the other girls in need of rescue." Maybe the plea strikes close to her heart; maybe her investigator's intuition starts buzzing. She takes it on. But this simple case of a missing teenager soon becomes much more. Someone wants Lydia to drop the case, someone powerful, someone anxious enough to engineer the reappearance of one of Lydia's first--and most dangerous--adversaries. Now, in addition to tracing the roots of Tatiana's disappearance on a trail across the country and eventually overseas, Lydia must find the man who wants her dead, his unfinished business from years ago.
