A Good Enough Mother

A Good Enough Mother

Hardback £12.99

The most dangerous lies are the ones we tell ourselves. Today Ruth is preoccupied by her son Tom’s disappearance. So when a new patient arrives at the unit – a young man who looks shockingly like Tom – she is floored. As a therapist, Ruth knows exactly what she should do in the best interests of her client, but as a mother she makes a very different choice – a decision that will have profound consequences. A gripping and deeply intelligent psychological thriller.

The Stone Circle

The Stone Circle

Hardback £18.99

DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters telling him to ‘go to the stone circle and rescue the innocent who is buried there’. He is shaken, not only because children are very much on his mind, with Michelle’s baby due to be born, but because although the letters are anonymous, they are somehow familiar. They read like the letters that first drew him into the case of The Crossing Places, and to Ruth. But the author of those letters is dead. Or are they?

The past is reaching out for Ruth and Nelson, and its grip is deadly.

The Devil's Dice

The Devil's Dice

Paperback £7.99

A lawyer is found dead in a Peak District cave, his face ribboned with scratches.

Amidst rumours of a local curse, DI Meg Dalton is convinced this is cold-blooded murder. There’s just one catch – chiselled into the cave wall above the body is an image of the grim reaper and the dead man’s initials, and it’s been there for over a century.

As Meg battles to solve the increasingly disturbing case, it’s clear someone knows her secrets. The murderer is playing games with Meg – and the dice are loaded…

What our customers say

Don’t be put off by its diminutive size – it’s like a TARDIS, and there’s a far greater choice of books on display than the laws of physics should really allow.

They know about books and can discuss them, and when you order them they arrive quicker than you can say Amazon.
