The Secret Life And Curious Death Of Miss Jean Milne

Author:

Andrew Nicoll

Synopsis:

The brutal murder of wealthy spinster Miss Jean Milne a hundred years ago shocked the country to its core. Why was she tied up, tortured and brutally murdered? Who could have committed such a heinous crime? To all appearances, Miss Jean Milne was the model of respectability, living quietly by herself in her seaside mansion. But behind the facade, she led a secret life, her frequent trips to London masking an altogether different story. For a century, the case went unsolved; now, using newly released evidence, Andrew Nicoll has brought it back from the dead to reveal what really happened. It's a shocking tale of class division, money, sex, lies, betrayal and murder. And, at last, the curious death of Miss Jean Milne may finally have found a solution.

The Chalk Girl

Author:

Carol O'Connell

Synopsis:

Red-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, perfect - except for the blood on her shoulder. It fell from the sky, she said, while she was looking for her uncle, who turned into a tree. POOR CHILD, people thought. And then they found the body in the tree... For NYPD detective Kathy Mallory, there is something about the girl that she understands. Mallory is damaged, they say, but she can tell a kindred spirit. And this one will lead her to a story of extraordinary crimes: murder stretching back fifteen years, blackmail and complicity, and a particular cruelty that only someone with Mallory's history could fully recognise. In the next few weeks, Kathy Mallory will deal with them all...in her own way.

Natural Causes

Author:

James Oswald

Synopsis:

Sixty years ago, a young girl was brutally murdered - her internal organs were removed and her body mutilated. Until now she lay undiscovered, sealed in an underground chamber. For the Edinburgh police force the six-decades-old case is not a priority, but Detective Inspector McLean is haunted by the dead girl's ritualistic murder and the six trinkets placed carefully around the body. As a wave of high-profile and bloody murders hits the city of Edinburgh - each one bearing an uncanny resemblance to the last - the same name begins to recur. As McLean digs deeper, he must question just how many coincidences there can be, realizing that the most irrational answer might be the only one possible...

A missing private investigator is found, locked in a car hidden deep in the woods. Worse still - both for his family and the police - is that his body was in an area that had already been searched.

There were always suspicions over how the investigation was handled, and now - after a decade without answers - it's time for the truth.

But there is one man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him: John Rebus.

John Rebus is back on the force, albeit with a big demotion and an even larger chip on his shoulder. A new law has been passed allowing the Scottish police to re-prosecute old crimes and a thirty-year-old case is being reopened, with Rebus and his team from back then suspected of corruption and worse. Known as 'the Saints', his colleagues swore a bond of mutual loyalty on something called the Shadow Bible. But with Malcolm Fox as the investigating officer - and determined to use Rebus for his own ends - the crimes of the past may not stay hidden much longer. With political turmoil threatening to envelop Scotland, who really are the saints, and who the sinners? And can one ever become the other?
