I have never heard of this author but am happy to have another series to try. With series type books the characters become like family--I enjoy that-just switch off button and they go away...! Looks like they should be read in order-is that right?


message 11: by Geraldine (new)

Geraldine Evans (geraldineevans) | 8 comments Mary, Each book can be read on its own, but like most series' characters, my main man, Detective Inspector Joe Rafferty, goes through various life events, which follow one another through the books. So far, there are fifteen books in the series and I'm working hard to bring out the rest to which I hold the e-rights. Next up, after Love Lies Bleeding is Blood on the Bones, set in an enclosed RC convent. A case which causes gladly-lapsed Rafferty some palpitations! It will also be free for five days on amazon.

Geraldine Evans (geraldineevans) | 8 comments Latest FREEBIE: Up in Flames #1 in my Casey & Catt procedural series.

’Well researched. Intriguing plot. Good pace. Excellent characterisation and wry humour make this a very enjoyable read. Highly recommended.'
Mystery Women

For lovers of cozy mysteries and procedurals.

If you enjoy some humour with your murders, you'll likely love this British detective series.

It was published just recently as another ebook from my backlist and went on Select free for five days on 23 April/ 27 April 2013.

It is currently at No 1 British Detectives in the US and Canada and No 2 in the UK (Numbers 618, 306 and 157 respectively in free overall) and No 1 in Krimis & Thriller > Polizeiromane in Germany (where it is number 119 free overall).

Here's the Blurb:
When Chandra Bansi and her baby, Leela, are burned to death, DCI ‘Will’ Casey and his less than politically-correct sergeant, Thomas Catt, rapidly come under pressure from their superintendent to put a couple of skinhead thugs behind bars for arson.

After the fiasco over the investigation of black South London teenager Stephen Lawrence's murder by racist white thugs, Superintendent Brown-Smith is acutely aware that he is in the hot seat. Desperate for a speedy and politically-satisfactory solution to the case and worried that his previously smooth upward career-progression will be irretrievably damaged by failure, he places additional pressure on Casey.

The investigation quickly unearths suspects other than the skinheads; suspects unlikely to endear Casey to his superiors or the Asian community.

The resolution of the most difficult case of his career is not eased by the arrival of his impecunious, 'the Sixties never died', drugged-up hippie parents. Urgently in need of a temporary home, they selfishly concluded that decamping to Casey's peaceful haven will provide the solution to their current difficulties.

But their raucous, undisciplined lifestyle causes Casey sleepless nights at a time he most needs calm. Bedevilled at home by his irresponsible parents, bedevilled at work by accusations of discrimination from the usual quarters, Casey and ThomCatt must wend a circuitous path through all the additional problems the investigation throws up.

For instance, just how respectable is Chandra’s businessman father? And what about her in-laws, who seem to have blamed their westernised daughter-in-law for the death of their only son? Other members of the victim's family also come under suspicion. Casey must use the utmost sensitivity in his handling of the case if he is not to cause unrest in the Asian community.

And, at the heart of the case is the fact that Chandra, a modern young woman, had been uncomfortably caught between two cultures. It’s hard to say which of them is the more dangerous.

M.A. Comley (melcom) | 1 comments Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I've released the first book in the Hero series.

Torn Apart is not for the faint-hearted, it's receiving great reviews so far and people are raving about the twist at the end.

Give it a try for an introductory price of only 97 pence.

Everyone understands about the no-go districts--areas of the city so overrun with gang violence even the police stay away. In this book, the first in a new series, DI Hero Nelson sets out to combat the issue.

When Saskia Hartley and her nine-year-old son are run down outside a restaurant, DI Nelson knows it is no ordinary hit-and-run incident. He's looking at a homicide case... and the evidence points to the brutal Krull Gang. When two prostitutes are murdered, but little interest is given to the women on the Krull's payroll, Nelson connects the dots.

DI Nelson has to decide whether he's dealing with a turf war or something far more sinister.

L.A. Kent | 100 comments Hi all. I'm new to Goodreads so hopefully this is the right place to announce my new book, and this is the right way to do it!!

Rogue Flamingo is NEW and introduces DI Treloar, settings in Cornwall and the South of France, multiple murders and an intriguing / exceptional female character who reflects on her life in flashbacks throughout the book:

A lawyer’s body is found on the beach in the small Cornish village of Porthaven, staked out with a tarred bag over its head, just as the peak summer season gets underway. When a second body is found bizarrely fixed to the floor of a nearby building not long afterwards, the laconic police surgeon remarks ‘Well, psychopaths need holidays too’. Detective Inspector Treloar, a maverick to some bosses but a driven, committed investigator to his fellow officers, takes charge. When more bodies turn up, in flagrante, Treloar and his team are at first unsure - accident or murder?

There seems to be no connection between the victims whose murders are violent and sexual, with escalating viciousness. What is going on? Could they have brought their fate with them; festering secrets from the past? Could either of the two mysterious men staying at the camp site be involved? Is it one or more doing the killing? What about the rabble of students in the big house or the local recluse and his enigmatic brother? What about the embittered locals resentful of incomers buying up the village? And who is the extraordinary female, institutionalised in the South of France as a child, who reflects on her past as the story unfolds?

Then a brutal attack on one of their own shocks Treloar’s team, switching their focus in an unexpected direction and a long-held grievance based on a heartfelt, perceived injustice surfaces.

Helen Smith (emperorsclothes) | 5 comments Beyond Belief by Helen Smith My British mystery, BEYOND BELIEF, was released in January this year. It's available in paperback, ebook and audiobook.

It's part of a series but there's no need to have read the others to enjoy this one.

BEYOND BELIEF features amateur sleuth Emily Castles. Here's the book description:

When renowned psychic Perspicacious Peg predicts a murder will occur at England’s Belief and Beyond conference, her skeptical colleagues recruit twenty-six-year-old budding sleuth Emily to attend the event to investigate. The suspected victim is illusionist Edmund Zenon, who plans to perform a daring stunt at the conference.

In the seaside town of Torquay, Emily meets a colourful cast of characters: dramatic fortune-teller Madame Nova; kindly Bobby Blue Suit and his three psychic dachshunds; Sarah and Tim Taylor, devastated parents mourning their late son; and religious cult members Hilary, Trina, and the Colonel. Tensions rise as believers in science, the supernatural, and the spiritual clash with one another. But once a body count begins, Emily must excuse herself from the séances and positivity circles, and use old-fashioned detective work to find the killer.


The books in the series:
Three Sisters (novella)
Showstoppers (novella)
Invitation to Die (full-length book)
Beyond Belief (full-length book)

If you read beyond Belief or any of the books in the series, please let me know.

Jacqueline Beard | 2 comments Vote For Murder

Hi David & Group

There is a Goodreads giveaway running for one week from today for 2 copies of Vote For Murder.

https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/sh...

In the Spring of 1911, suffragist Louisa Russell finds an old diary in a box of artefacts, while attending a census evasion night at the Old Museum in Ipswich. The diary recounts the last days of Mary Emily Cage, executed for the murder of her husband six decades earlier.

When Louisa’s next door neighbour, Charles Drummond, dies under suspicious circumstances, the parallels between the two deaths become impossible to ignore. But can two deaths sixty years apart be linked? And can Louisa find the poisoner before an innocent woman is convicted?

In the words of Monty Python: and now for something entirely different........a new (non-Rebus) short story from Ian Rankin comes out later this month in N. America. I don't think I've ever read a story of his that didn't feature the crusty detective so I'm curious to see what it's like.

H.E. Bulstrode (goodreadscomhebulstrode) | 5 comments 3 05 am by H.E. Bulstrode Gwydion's Dawn by H.E. Bulstrode Old Crotchet by H.E. Bulstrode
Hello everyone,

In recent months, I have released three mysteries set in the West Country, each with a supernatural or occult theme shot through with a vein of wry humour. One of them – ‘3:05 am’ – is on a Kindle free promo offer this weekend, but like the other two books in the series (‘Gwydion’s Dawn’ and ‘Old Crotchet’), is available free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers at other times. Each of these tales is a standalone creation involving its own unique scenarios and set of characters.

For the sake of brevity, I shall provide the blurb for ‘3:05 am’ here, and Amazon links below.

3:05 am (H.E. Bulstrode's West Country Tales, Book 2).
Come, wipe away the encrustations of sleep, and peer through sore and bleary eyes to share in Mark Hillier’s nocturnal visions; bear witness to that which his wife will not believe. The sweat of deep summer night’s fevered breath lent an unseasonal chill.

Mark should be happy, what with a promotion and impending fatherhood in the offing, but instead he is increasingly troubled by what is beamed into his home, courtesy of his portable television set, on a succession of hot summer nights in 1998. The images that he witnesses, and the actions that they portray, strike at the very root of his sense of who he is. He may be left perplexed and confused, yet that irritant of a colleague of his – Mike Pearce – seems to know something that he doesn’t. Could there be a hint of the supernatural in the mix, and if so, what, if anything, does Pearce have to do with it, and what does it mean for his future?

A wry mystery novelette, just over 7,500 words in length. The second in a series of West Country Tales.

H.E. Bulstrode (goodreadscomhebulstrode) | 5 comments The Rude Woman of Cerne by H.E. Bulstrode
Just released: 'The Rude Woman of Cerne' (readers may also be interested to learn that 'Gwydion's Dawn' is currently free to download from the Amazon Kindle store until this Wednesday: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01JGQB86I)

Blurb for 'The Rude Woman of Cerne' - a satirical mystery.
The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but Beatrice Clemens is determined to make this adage more ‘relevant’ to today’s society by blithely driving an eight-lane superhighway straight through the heart of rural England. Dubbed the ‘Conscience of Dorset’ by a newly launched progressive broadsheet, one could be forgiven for forgetting that this doughty campaigner for social justice in its multifarious forms is actually a B&B hostess (although she would prefer the non-gender specific term ‘host’). Alas for her guests, her values and preoccupations are never far from her lips, and her inclusive zeal is something in which she enjoins all to share, even if they are only trying to order a full English breakfast, and enjoy a country break far from the clamour of the madding crowd.

Just as Beatrice stands upon the brink of receiving the acclamation that she believes her work with ‘Diversity from the City’ deserves, something, or someone, is glimpsed amidst the hedgerows and within the banks of the Trendle; shadowy, furtive – the embodiment of old Dorset? Whoever it may be, he does not, it would seem, share her enthusiasms.

A novella of approximately 22,700 words in length.
