A new DCI John Blizzard murder mystery.

 THE SECRETS MAN by John Dean, just 99p / 99 cents for launch.

Whilst detective John Blizzard looks into a series of drug-related deaths, an old nemesis appears on the scene and threatens to cloud his judgement.

Frustrated with the slow progress of his colleagues’ investigation into the deaths of several youngsters on his patch, DCI John Blizzard takes over, determined to catch the drug pushers. In so doing, he stumbles across information that might help solve a murder that occurred when he first joined CID.

Many years ago, Des Fairley was shot dead after mouthing off about feared local villain Morrie Raynor. Now with Raynor’s old righthand man on death’s door, delirious, and in hospital, the detective is convinced he will reveal secrets about the unsolved crime.

Suspecting that Morrie Raynor, who he once put behind bars but is now free and at large, is linked to both cases, he rubs fellow officers up the wrong way when he insists on an unusual line of inquiry.
Against the wishes of his superintendent and increasingly at odds with his staff, desperate to catch Raynor, the detective puts the general hospital at the centre of his investigation. But will his instincts prove to be true, or is old age finally getting the better of the veteran crime solver.

If you enjoy murder mysteries full of red herrings and twists, THE SECRETS MAN is for you.
THE SECRETS MAN is the fourth in a series of murder mysteries set in the fictional northern city of Hafton, England.

Mattie Jones is found brutally stabbed to death in her palatial home. Hillary Greene is called in to investigate the murder of this wealthy woman.

Hillary discovers that Mattie’s snobby attitude had made her many enemies. Mattie was also going through a messy divorce and had a secret lover.

MURDER IN THE  MANSION is the eighth in a series of page-turning crime thrillers set in Oxfordshire.

THE LOCATION
Many villages on the borders of the Cotswolds have more than their fair share of large, impressive, Cotswold stone ‘mansions’ – homes in times past to the professional classes and farmers.  Large, mostly Georgian, with traditional kitchen gardens, orchards, and ornamental plantings, they are quintessentially English.

THE DETECTIVES
DI Hillary Greene
An attractive woman in her forties, Hillary Greene is a police officer of many years’ experience, and came up through the ranks. Consequently, she knows how the system works, and is fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. She is a long-standing friend of her immediate superior officer, 'Mellow' Mallow and enjoys a rather enigmatic relationship with the steely Superintendent Marcus Donleavy. Popular with the rank and file for her no-nonsense attitude and competence.

DCI Philip 'Mellow' Mallow
Mel appreciates Hillary's first-rate ability to solve her cases, and isn't happy about her harassment by the officers from York. Known for his sartorial elegance and laid-back manners, he has a sharp mind, and an eye for the ladies. A good friend and ally for Hillary in her recent tribulations, he's determined to keep his best investigator focused on the problems at hand.

DARK ANGEL BY HELEN H. DURRANT

9781912106370.jpg
Love gripping crime fiction? Discover Detective Stephen Greco, a meticulous policeman with a messy personal life.

Two young men break into an expensive house in Cheshire. They take money and jewellery — and a large amount of heroin. Within twenty-four hours they are found brutally murdered.

The killings have all the hallmarks of a local drug baron. The two victims were also “angels” helping in a community project which seems to have been lowering the crime rate in the area. But not everything is as it seems.

Meanwhile, Detective Stephen Greco’s colleague and on-off girlfriend Grace is pregnant. He isn’t sure how he feels about this, and they haven’t told the boss.

And just when Greco seems to have cracked the case, new information comes to light which threatens to change everything.

This gripping and fast-paced crime mystery ends with a series of shocking twists.

If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will enjoy this best-selling crime fiction writer.

A young boy finds a body on a deserted Scottish beach. DS West searches for absconded DI Munro to help track down the killer.

Left to her own devices Detective Sergeant Charlie West struggles with the responsibility of a full-blown murder investigation when a man is pushed off a cliff.

Veteran crime-solver Detective Inspector Munro has disappeared having blown up his own house to remove a nemesis from a line of inquiry.

Not ready to have her apron strings severed so soon, West eventually finds Munro who reluctantly agrees to shed the light of his wisdom on what might be the Ayrshire detectives' most challenging case yet.

Once the police have discovered the identity of the dead man, and established his demise was definitely the result of foul play, the race is on to hunt down the murderer.

Given the victim's links to a local drug ring there is no shortage of suspects, yet few of them are willing to share their knowledge with the police.

Can Munro and West see through an elaborate ruse before the killer strikes again?

TALION is the sixth book to feature these detectives. It is FREE on Kindle Unlimited.
