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...

Dark Country

Author:

Bronwyn Parry

Synopsis:

For 18 years most people in the small town of Dungirri have considered Morgan "Gil" Gillespie a murderer, so he expects no welcome on his return. What he doesn't expect is the discovery of a woman's body in the boot of his car. Wearied by too many deaths, local police sergeant Kris Matthews isn't sure whether Gil is a decent man or a brutal criminal. But she does know that he isn't guilty of this murder - because she is his alibi... Gil has nowhere to hide. He needs to work out who's behind the murder before his enemies realise that the one thing more punishing than putting him back in prison would be to harm the few people he cares about.
