Eleven Days

Author:

Stav Sherez

Synopsis:

A fire rages through a sleepy West London square a few days before Christmas, engulfing a small convent hidden away among the residential houses. When DI Jack Carrigan and DS Geneva Miller arrive at the scene they discover eleven bodies, yet there were only supposed to be ten nuns in residence. Why did they make no move to escape the fire? Who is the eleventh victim, whose body was found separate from the others? And where is the convent's priest, the one man who can answer their questions? Fighting both internal politics and the church hierarchy, Carrigan and Miller unravel the threads of a case that reaches back to the early 1970s. Meanwhile, closer to home, there's a new threat in the air - one the police are entirely unprepared for...

Thora Gudmundsdottir is hired by the young father's parents to investigate, and is soon drawn deeper into the mystery. What should she make of the rumours saying that the vessel was cursed, especially given that when she boards the yacht she thinks she sees one of the missing twins?

Missing, Presumed

Author:

Susie Steiner

Synopsis:

In mid-December, Cambridgeshire is blanketed with snow. Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw tries to sleep after yet another soul-destroying Internet date - the low murmuring of her police radio her only solace. Over the airwaves come reports of a missing woman - door ajar, keys and phone left behind, a spatter of blood on the kitchen floor. Manon knows the first seventy-two hours are critical: you find her, or you look for a body. And as soon as she sees a picture of Edith Hind, a Cambridge post-graduate from a well-connected family, she knows this case will be big. Is Edith alive or dead? Was her 'complex love life' at the heart of her disappearance, as a senior officer tells the increasingly hungry press? And when a body is found, is it the end - or only the beginning?

She's horrified to discover that both the victim and prime suspect are more closely linked to her than she could have imagined. And as the Cambridgeshire police close ranks against her, she is forced to contemplate the unthinkable. How well does she know her loved ones, and are they capable of murder?
