When a homecoming turns into a perilous search for the truth
Estranged from her family for over twenty years and having blanked out many of the reasons that made her leave, after the death of her mother, Daydee returns to her hometown in Illinois.

Having inherited land and a cemetery business, Daydee begins to refamiliarize herself with the people in the town, many of whom regard her with suspicion. But as she finds out more about her mother and her affairs, she realises much has been hidden from her. Her properties had been used for illegal gains, clearly some of the town’s folk have been in on it, and her mother’s collaborators want everything kept under wraps.

Having worked as a call girl for much of her life, and wise to the ways of men, Daydee battles with her reputation and begins to make friends. But when she makes a chilling discovery in the cemetery and unveils what looks like a grievous crime, she is in certain danger and will require all her hard-won courage and wits to win over.

If you enjoy fiction with a strong but flawed protagonist, with depth and great plot twists, look no further than UNDER THE COLD STONES.

DEAD HILL, a DCI Jack Harris thriller by John Dean

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XH2ZJQ4/
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XH2ZJQ4/

The theft of the eggs of a rare golden eagle leads to a murder investigation and a serious questioning of loyalties

Surly and abrasive, veteran detective Jack Harris at times shows more concern for the wildlife in his beloved Pennine Hills than keeping up cordial relations at work. Indeed, when a trio of local criminals try to steal the eggs of a rare bird, DCI Harris treats it almost like a personal insult and readies to envelop them in the long arm of the law.

Yet, when two of the criminals descend from the hills into Harris’ snare, rather than the expected three, Harris finds himself with a murder investigation on his hands. But far from being an open and shut case, it is one that will wrench him out of his rural idyll, and back into the gritty criminal underworld to solve.

When the murdered man is identified as a gangland member, Harris is beset by a troubled local community and doubts amongst his colleagues that he can bring the killer to justice. Doing so will force Harris to confront a nasty episode in his own past and question the loyalties of those around him.

This novel is set in the fictional town of Levton, nestled in the bleak and blustery Pennine Hills in the north of England. It is the first in a series of titles featuring Jack Harris and the Levton Police Force, previously published by Robert Hale, London.
This book is FREE on Kindle Unlimited.

It is not easy terrain for the Fenland Constabulary to police, due to the distances between some of the remote Fen villages, the dangerous and often misty lanes, and the poor telephone coverage. There are still villages where the oldest residents have never set foot outside their own farmland and a visit to the nearest town is a major event. But it has a strange airy beauty to it, and above it all are the biggest skies you’ve ever seen.
