Deadly Stuff

Author:

Joyce Cato

Synopsis:

Travelling cook Jenny Starling is keen to begin her temporary summer job at an Oxford college - but had expected her first foray into academic conference catering to involve slightly more illustrious clients than the Greater Ribble Valley & Jessop Taxidermy Society! And she hadn't expected murder to be on the menu... When an unpopular member of the Society is found stabbed to death, Jenny is persuaded by the college bursar to assist the police in solving the case. And, as if she hadn't enough to deal with between conducting investigations whilst keeping everyone deliciously fed, she must also contend with the antics of an escape-artist chameleon named Norman...

Frozen Moment

Author:

Camilla Ceder

Synopsis:

One cold morning, in the Swedish countryside, a man's body is found. The victim has been shot in the head, and run over repeatedly by a car. Inspector Christian Tell, a world-weary detective with a chequered past, is called to the scene. But there are few clues to go by, and no one seems to be telling the truth.

For the inquiry to succeed, the community must yield the dark secrets of its past...
