New Year, New Books

I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year break, with lots of time to catch up on your reading.  We have some exciting new books coming out very shortly, plus a few that arrived during December.

Weavers Way

Weavers Way

Number 9 in David Blake's Broadland series

Struggling with his new role as a detective chief inspector, John Tanner is warned of a convicted psychopath’s early release. When a couple is found later that day; the man stabbed to death, the woman with her throat cut, he’s forced to assume the convict is responsible. But when the male victim turns out to be heir to a global pharmaceutical company, and his twelve-year-old son is nowhere to be found, he has to start looking closer to the victim’s family, and their sprawling stately ancestral home.

Expected around 18th January, available to pre-order now!

The Temenos Remains

The Temenos Remains

Number 4 in Heather Peck's Geldard series

With his ex-wife receiving threatening phone calls, loose ends still flapping from his last big case and a ritual burial found in a Norwich archaeological dig, the last thing Greg Geldard needs is an East Coast flood and a cliff fall that reveals – what exactly?

Ritual burials are rare. Finding them – rarer still. When three turn up, Greg Geldard knows he has a problem.  The nature of the victims and historic attitudes complicate his investigation as he struggles to find the killer’s latest victim before it’s too late.

Publication early February, available to pre-order now!

Paperback 305 pages; Ormesby Publishing
ISBN 9781915769008; RRP £9.99

Also from Heather Peck, you may have missed her short ‘novella’ bonus in the Geldard series, Death on the Rhine. 

Much to Greg Geldard’s amusement, his friends Ben and Paula embark on a river cruise for their 2nd honeymoon. Set on a luxury river cruise on the Rhine, the story evokes the grand old age of murder mysteries, with a modern twist.
