New British detective fiction on Kindle.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071JFLFKJ/Murder, animal cruelty, and vigilante justice drag DCI Jack Harris out of his quiet rural idyll.

When the hunt for a missing man turns up a body deep in a forest in northern England, it is difficult to establish whether he was killed by a falling tree, or murdered. When the victim’s dog is also found dead, Detective Jack Harris is called in to investigate.

The man’s links to known criminals immediately raise suspicion about his death, especially when one of the names is that of a notorious villain with whom the detective has had several previous encounters. But Harris’ obsession with bringing Danny Radford to justice might well distract him from the facts of the case, and with the superintendent insistent on results, the atmosphere in Levton police station is as fraught as it has ever been.

Can Harris put aside his personal feelings and focus on the facts before him? Or will his desire for revenge let a resourceful killer off the hook?

A gripping new Scottish murder mystery


http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071R92W9H/

New release on Kindle, 99p introductory offer.
DUPLICITY, another murder mystery featuring DI Munro and DS West

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071R92W9H/
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B071R92W9H/

A local businessman disappears during a meal shared by old friends. When he is later found dead, DI Munro must cut through a densely-woven web of deceit to find out why.

The Carduccis and the Buchanans have been best of friends for years, but simmering under the surface are long-held jealousies and disagreements that only the criminal affairs of the men have kept at bay.

When, during a meal, Angus Buchanan steps out of the house to fetch a bottle of wine from the car and subsequently disappears, the police are quickly informed. But when the most likely explanations are ruled out, detectives Munro and West are called upon to investigate possible foul play.

When Buchanan is later found, having suffered a violent death, pathology rules out natural causes and it becomes clear that a terrible murder has occurred.

Faced with the lack of real cooperation from the parties involved, who are clearly protecting their nefarious business interests, the man responsible for Buchanan's death is found relatively quickly. But when he pretty much laughs in the face of the detective's accusations, Munro and West realise that there must be much bigger fish to fry.

In an investigation that takes them as far afield as >b>Oslo, Norway, and into the past of a troubled Polish man, Munro's dream of a tranquil life in the countryside is further put on hold, and the ever ravenous Charlie West, must continue to battle the ways and mores of a Scottish backwater without losing her cool.

With more red herrings than a Norwegian fishing boat in the sunset, DUPLICITY is a highly entertaining cosy Scandinavian-style murder mystery that will appeal to anyone who enjoys a gripping read where guessing the identity of the murderer is key.

DUPLICITY is the fourth novel by Pete Brassett to feature Detective Inspector James Munro and Detective Sergeant Charlotte West. Look out for SHE, the first in the series, followed by AVARICE and ENMITY. The books can be enjoyed as stand-alone titles or as part of a series.

All these books are available on Kindle Unlimited and the previous titles, as DUPLICITY will soon be, are also available in paperback.

A series of blood-curdling screams heard in the dead of the Cumbrian night has a London woman new to the area convinced that a murder has occurred.

When a body of a young woman is in fact found, rumours quickly spread that a serial killer is at work in the small Pennine community of Levton Bridge.

When the clues do indeed begin to point to a connection with other missing women, the pressure from on high to find answers increases ten-fold.

Fighting the media circus’s constant attempts to thwart the investigation, detective Jack Harris must also battle the confusion and doubts among his own team in order to find the killer.

THE VIXEN’S SCREAM is the second book by John Dean to feature DCI Jack Harris. Look out for the first, DEAD HILL. These books can be enjoyed on their own or as part of a series, in no particular order.

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.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.

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.
