Book Description: Commander Neville Thornwyn was DS Robert McGraw's boss when McGraw was first promoted to the rank of detective constable in the CID. He was also McGraw's personal hero. It’s difficult to reconcile that with Thornwyn's conviction for bribery and corruption, and things are about to get worse. McGraw, investigating a junior minister’s suicide, finds there was more to Thornwyn than he ever knew, and what he learns is not only damaging; it also has national security implications.

Book Description: Sometimes, Katherine feels like she's losing her mind. Illness, work trouble, the menopause. Her life is a mess, and she isn't exactly getting any support from her husband. But then there's Jack. Confident, attractive, charming Jack, flown in from the USA to help out at Katherine's workplace. He knows Katherine and her husband are separated, and he seems very interested in filling Bradley's place. One problem. Katherine and Bradley aren't separated. The 'separation' line just slipped out when Katherine was talking to Jack. A white lie. Or, well, maybe a grey lie. She just needs to tread carefully though, and this doesn't have to backfire on her. Right?

Book Description: In the late 1960s and early 70s it was perhaps a 'rite of passage' for a young or cub reporter who'd shown some talent to be taken on a 'big story' by the chief crime reporter. The junior's adrenaline, enthusiasm and excitement could be channelled into seeing how major news items are researched and written and, most importantly, how difficult interviews are carried out. For Simon Jardine the sight of his first dead body is the catalyst for a mentoring relationship with the hardened, hard-drinking, hard-grilling crime hack Dave Green, alongside their mutual friend, DJ and part-time private investigator, Tom Freeman. Dave Green knows the identity of the body in East Street, Derby; it's the son of a woman with whom he had an affair while her husband was in prison. First Dead Body is a story of corruption and violence loosely set around the construction of Derby's inner ring road in the early 1970s. First Dead Body encapsulates the life of 1970s reporters when lunches were often long and liquid and it was the norm to meet contacts in pubs like The Dolphin, The Exeter Arms, The Wagon and Horses. With the young reporter's interest in music there were lots of opportunities to visit nightclubs that have since disappeared under re-developments, as well as jazz haunts such as The Crown Club, Spondon, now sadly a pile of rubble.
