MURDER NEVER RETIRES by Faith Martin

Looking for a brilliant best-selling murder mystery with a feisty female detective?
 
DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE IS BACK! And this time she’s going to solve the most difficult cold cases.
 
Hillary Greene returns to Thames Valley Police HQ, acting as a consultant for the Crime Review Team, looking into murders which the police have never been able to solve.
 
She wasn’t sure she wanted to go back. But solving crimes is irresistible for Hillary Greene. And it doesn’t hurt that her new boss is devastatingly handsome.
 
Twenty years ago, mother-of-three Anna McRae was found beaten to death in her kitchen with a rolling pin. She’d been having an affair with her brother-in-law, so the prime suspect was Anna’s sister Debbie.
 
However as Hillary digs deeper, more secrets and betrayals emerge. Who wanted Anna dead and can Hillary finally bring her justice?
 
Meanwhile, Hillary is distracted by an unknown admirer, who quickly seems to be going from suitor to stalker.
 
Can Hillary solve a fiendishly complex case from the past while fending off unwanted attention?
 
This is a crime mystery full of well-observed characters, which will have you gripped from start to the absolutely thrilling conclusion.
 
MURDER NEVER RETIRES is the twelfth in a series of page-turning crime thrillers set in Oxfordshire.
 
THE LOCATION
The village of Chesterton, just a few miles from the market town of Bicester. With recent development, the village (like many near large towns) is nowadays in danger of becoming a mere ‘suburb’ of its biggest neighbour. Especially since it’s a stones-throw from Bicester Village — the famous high-end designer-label shopping centre that brings large amounts of UK and foreign shoppers. But at the time of the original murder investigation, it was a village like many to be found in rural Oxfordshire. Surrounded by farmland, it was a peaceful, quiet location. Not the sort of place where you’d expect a shocking murder to happen

THE DETECTIVE
DI Hillary Greene
An attractive woman in her forties, Hillary Greene is a retired police detective. She had many years’ experience solving the toughest murder cases, 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 was popular with the rank and file for her no-nonsense attitude and competence.
 
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A REVISED EDITION OF A BOOK FIRST PUBLISHED AS “A NARROW RETURN.”

MARRIED LIES by CHRIS COLLETT
 
Do you love gripping mysteries with great characters?
Discover Detective Tom Mariner in this critically acclaimed series.
'Collett is a wonderful writer, subtle, clever, strong on atmosphere and character.’ Yorkshire Post
Lucy Jarrett is terrified. Someone is watching her every move, following her home from work and making threatening phone calls. But her husband doesn’t believe her and no one else is listening.
Lucy’s married life is proving anything but blissful. Her musician husband is perpetually away on tour and doesn’t want to start a family.
Lucy finally calls on DI Tom Mariner for help, and he takes her fears seriously because of the recent murder of another young woman by her ex-partner.
Mariner himself is already on the hunt for a sadistic killer. Nina Silvero, wife of an ex-police officer, was duped into sipping sulphuric acid disguised as celebratory wine. Grappling with her apparently motiveless killing, Mariner delegates Lucy’s case to Millie Khatoon.  Is someone out for revenge against the police?

Can DI Tom Mariner track down the stalker and catch the killer before anyone else dies?

Discover an absorbing crime mystery full of stunning twists and turns.

Perfect for fans of Peter James, Ian Rankin and Peter Robinson. This is the fifth book in the DI MARINER SERIES, more books coming soon!

THE SETTING
Birmingham is a city of stark contrasts with a rich cultural and historical heritage. Playing a key role in the industrial revolution, it helped shape the nation’s manufacturing industry

But with its many green spaces, Birmingham also borders on the beautiful countryside of Worcestershire and Warwickshire, is just a few miles from Stratford on Avon and a short drive from the wild country of mid-Wales.

Birmingham’s population is large and ethnically diverse, and while urban regeneration has forged a modern and culturally vibrant city, the decaying remnants of the industrial past and 1960s concrete jungle give it a unique and gritty character; the dark underbelly policed by DI Tom Mariner and his team.


THE DETECTIVE
Detective Inspector Tom Mariner is, on the surface, an average dedicated policeman, but his experiences as a younger man have given him an insight into life on the dark side, and a clear sense of right and wrong. Mariner has little interest in material things. He lives in a modest canal-side cottage, enjoys the occasional (real) beer and game of dominoes and drives an old car. He is most at home in the outdoors, with an OS map and a compass, and in times of crisis, will take off and walk for miles in any weather.

THIS IS A REVISED EDITION OF A BOOK FIRST PUBLISHED AS “STALKED BY SHADOWS.”

New release: epic arthurian fantasy romance

The epic tale of a woman who will use all her power to protect her son and make him King.

This collection of three books tells the story of King Arthur’s mother, Igraine, the conflict over the future king’s destiny between her and Merlin, and the struggle within a post-Roman Britain to mix past with present, Christianity with paganism, and magic with politics. Igraine is no passive bystander at court but a powerful political player, a wise and influential queen who reflects the strength and tenacity of the women of ancient Britain. Igraine's life has never before been told in detail. This is her story.

Just 99p/ 99c for launch

The Cornish Princess
The King of Britain is dead, without a male heir. The politics of her country never mattered much to Igraine, until now, when they threatened to rob her of her home. When the witch Merlin tells her destiny will make her queen, a defiant Igraine refuses an offer of marriage from Uther, a rough soldier and unlikely pretender for the throne, but destiny cannot be avoided and the harder she fights it, the more brutal it will be when it comes.

The Prisoner Queen
Freshly widowed, with a child she can’t possibly have in safety and two grieving daughters, Igraine must negotiate the dangerous politics of a court in turmoil, unsure of if she is its new queen or a prisoner. With Uther’s promises not yet kept, and him slipping further under Merlin’s control, to protect her unborn child, her daughters and the home she has left behind, Igraine is forced to make deals with friends she knows are not to be trusted.

Mother of the King
With her son lost and Merlin back at court, Igraine fights for control of the kingdom. Uther is broken by grief, weakening and dying, and Igraine is locked in a conflict with the wizard over the destiny of her son. In this battle there can be only one survivor, and Igraine has not survived the dangers of court to give up now.

If you enjoy epic fantasy adventures like Game of Thrones, with a romantic twist, this book is for you.
Also available as three separate titles on Kindle. Coming soon in paperback.
FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
