Cheating The Hangman

Author:

Judith Cutler

Synopsis:

The Reverend Tobias Campion returns from morning service on Easter Day and makes a grisly discovery: a corpse nailed to a tree. Together with his old friend, Dr Hansard, he pledges to expose the truth - though it means uncovering secrets the hostile villagers would prefer to keep hidden. Questioning the offended and resentful gentry as well, the pair hears whispers of Satanism, unsavoury pasts, and sinister obsessions. Before long, an attempt is made to silence their enquiries; Tobias, injured but no less determined, realises he must be close to the truth if someone wants him dead. With friends and colleagues either unable or unwilling to help, Tobias is forced to confront his own demons, and ask for help from the last person on earth he wants to meet again...

Head Count

Author:

Judith Cutler

Synopsis:

A head teacher's work is never done - especially if, like Jane Cowan, you are a victim of your own success. Having done well with Wrayford Primary, she's now added the headship of a neighbouring school to her responsibilities. She's also got involved with the village cricket team, with the distinct possibility of a handsome new man in her life. But before she starts her new job, she's hit by a car while cycling. The driver speeds away, and then the two witnesses, an elderly married couple, mysteriously disappear. To add to her troubles, a village worthy constantly interferes in the running of the school, and for some reason no local builder is prepared to renovate her ramshackle house. Just who has Jane offended? Finding out may well have unexpected and tragic consequences.

This Little Piggy

Author:

Bea Davenport

Synopsis:

It's the summer of 1984, and there is a sense of unease on the troubled Sweetmeadows estate. The residents are in shock after the suspicious death of a baby, and tension is growing due to the ongoing miners' strike. Journalist Clare Jackson follows the story as the police bungle the inquiry and struggle to contain the escalating violence. Haunted by a personal trauma she can't face up to, Clare is shadowed by nine-year-old Amy, a bright but neglected little girl who seems to know more about the incident than she's letting on. As the days go by and the killer is not found, Clare ignores warnings not to get too close to her stories - and, in doing so, puts her own life in jeopardy.

Trespasser

Author:

Paul Doiron

Synopsis:

While on patrol one evening, game warden Mike Bowditch receives a call for help. A woman has reportedly struck a deer on a lonely coastal road. When he arrives, he finds blood on the road - but both the driver and deer have vanished. Her body is found the next day, brutalised in a way eerily similar to a case seven years ago, when a jury sentenced Erland Jefferts to life imprisonment for the rape and murder of a college student. So was Jefferts framed? When Bowditch begins to investigate, he receives a warning from state prosecutors to stop asking questions. But for Bowditch, doing nothing is not an option. And as he closes in on the truth, he suddenly discovers how far his opponents will go to prevent him from bringing a killer to justice...
