Hellfire

Author:

Karin Fossum

Synopsis:

A gruesome tableau awaits Inspector Sejer in the oppressive summer heat: Bonnie Hayden and her young son Simon lie dead in a pool of blood near an old caravan on a remote piece of land. There is no sign of robbery or assault. Who would brutally stab a defenceless woman and her child? Sejer and his fellow investigator Jakob Skarre begin a hunt for the killer that will eventually lead them to a heartbreaking conclusion. Meanwhile, another mother, Mass, who is dying of cancer, confesses to her twenty-one-year-old son Eddie that he was adopted. The man who abandoned them, whom the boy has become obsessed with, is not his real father. When long-held secrets are revealed, it turns out that Mass and Bonnie have more in common than Eddie could ever have guessed...

Tomb Of The Serpent

Author:

Guy Fraser

Synopsis:

Superintendent Henry Jarrett thinks he has encountered murder in all its forms, but gory human sacrifice is horribly new. Is there a madman loose in Victorian Glasgow, as Jarrett, Inspector Grant and Sergeant Quinn believe? The victims are randomly chosen, the killings unpredictable and thus unsolvable. Then, a murder at a travelling fair - which bears no resemblance to the others - and the little matter of the valuable artefacts, increases Jarrett's confusion. It seems the time is right for him to tie the knot with his beloved Elsie Maitland and retire to the seaside - before his chief constable demands his resignation.

The Liar's Lullaby

Author:

Meg Gardiner

Synopsis:

Tasia McFarland is a washed-up singer desperate to get back to the top of the charts. As her star begins to rise again, the tabloids uncover the fact that Tasia is the ex-wife of the US President; which is one reason the world takes notice when she is killed by a bullet to the neck in front of a crowd of fans. Suicide is suspected, but when the ballistics report comes up empty, the authorities call on Jo Beckett to do a psychological autopsy. As Jo sifts through the facts, she only finds more questions. Poring over Tasia's past quickly becomes a race to extinguish the conspiracy rumour-mill before it incites a level of violence that reaches America's highest corridors of power.

THIRST AND MURDER - IN OTHER WORDS, MY AUNTIE POLDI'S TWO PET HATES. THEY UPSET HER INNER EQUILIBRIUM EVEN MORE THAN THE SIGHT OF A HANDSOME, IMMACULATELY TURNED-OUT SICILIAN TRAFFIC COP. Still relishing the notoriety from her spectacular resolution of the Candela case, Auntie Poldi is alive to the faintest whiff of criminality.

Poldi has tasted blood. No one is above suspicion. And when a new murder investigation is added to the mix, trouble will surely follow...
