Snow Wasted

Author:

Matthew Malekos

Synopsis:

Forensic pathologist Dr Karen Laos is approached by the Ministry of Defence and dispatched as a civilian contractor to Cyprus. A soldier stationed on the island has been murdered, the crime bearing similarities to the killing of another serviceman the previous year. The Foreign Office insists on a British citizen performing the autopsy, whilst hoping that Laos's own Greek-Cypriot ancestry will placate the local police force. Against the beautiful backdrop of a Mediterranean summer, an undercurrent of vice and deceit simmers, and Laos must work against the odds to restore law and order.

The Necropolis Railway

Author:

Andrew Martin

Synopsis:

Bright and ambitious, young Jim Stringer moves from the English countryside to London, eager to begin work as a railwayman at Waterloo Station. It is 1903, the dawn of the Edwardian age, when steam runs the nation and the railways drive progress. Jim finds, however, that his duties involve a graveyard shift, literally - a railway line that takes coffins from London morgues to the gigantic new cemeteries being dug in the city's outskirts. He also learns that the men he works alongside have formed an instant loathing of him - and his predecessor has disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Can Jim work out what's going on before he's issued a one-way ticket aboard the Necropolis Railway?
