Meet Jenny Starling: travelling cook and reluctant amateur detective.
THIS IS A BRAND NEW, NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED FAITH MARTIN BOOK.
Jenny Starling is working at The Spindlewood Inn for the weekend. It’s hosting a Regency Extravaganza, involving historical costume, amateur dramatics and food.
Leading actress of the amateur dramatic society and reputed man-eater Rachel Norman portrays a doomed noblewoman. But when she turns up actually drowned in the pond, there’s suddenly a murder to investigate.
There’s been plenty of trouble at the idyllic country inn. The performers weren’t a happy troupe, and Jenny discovers a simmering romantic tension.

This is the seventh in a series of enjoyable murder mysteries with a great cast of characters and baffling crimes which will keep you in suspense to the final page.
Perfect for fans of classic whodunits by authors like Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey, and J.R. Ellis.
JENNY STARLING
In her late twenties, Jenny Starling is an impressive woman. Physically, she stands at 6ft 1inch, and has shoulder-length black hair and blue eyes. Curvaceous and sexy, she’s a modern single woman, living the lifestyle that suits her – that of a travelling cook. Her famous (and now very rich) father, is a ‘celebrity’ cook, divorced from Jenny’s mother. Jenny drives a disreputable cherry-red van, and is happy travelling the country catering events and cooking great food. She is on a one-woman crusade to bring back ‘real’ food. And definitely doesn’t like having to divert her attention from achieving the perfect Dundee cake or creating a new sauce recipe by having to solve a murder. She finds crime very distracting, especially when there is chocolate to temper or pike to poach. Nevertheless, she is very good at reading people, and with a quick and agile brain, becomes very good at unmasking killers. And her always-undaunted sense of humour goes a long way in keeping her sane when all around her people are dropping like flies.
THE AUTHOR
FAITH MARTIN is the best-selling author of the DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE mysteries, which have sold over 1 million copies globally in just over a year.

Praise for David Hodges

‘Extremely well-written and passionately described crime-scenes’ - Mid Somerset Series

‘Hodges uses the experience of 30-plus years in the job as an anvil of solid fact to beat out pacey tales of "canteen culture" cops’ - Cheddar Valley News

MEET DETECTIVE KATE HAMBLIN IN THIS PAGE-TURNING NEW SERIES FROM A FORMER POLICE OFFICER.

Please note that this book was previously published as “Deadly Secrets.”

Detective Kate believes that her own number is up when she finds herself staring at the wrong end of a double-barrelled shotgun on a sodden stretch of Somerset marshland.

She’s on the trail of villain Lenny Stallard who has just broken out of prison. He was serving time for the murder of the elderly wife of a colonel during a robbery at their country residence near Bridgwater.

Revenge appears to be the motive and for DS Lewis’s superiors it is a cut-and-dried case as the bodies of trial witnesses begins to mount up. But it’s all a bit too convenient.

Kate might have been taken off the case but the surprises are not over yet. And she never gives up in her quest for the truth.

DISCOVER A BREATH-TAKING NEW SERIES OF MYSTERIES THAT YOU WON’T WANT TO PUT DOWN

Perfect for fans of Rachel Abbott, Robert Bryndza, Mel Sherratt, Angela Marsons, Colin Dexter, or Ruth Rendell.

THE DETECTIVES
Kate is a feisty, young police detective, with a dynamic approach to her job. She is plucky and tenacious, but prone to being impetuous and headstrong, which often lands her in tight spots and does not exactly endear her to her crusty boss, DI Ted Roscoe.

In stark contrast to Kate, her detective partner, Hayden, is an overweight, untidy ex-public schoolboy, with a pompous, laid-back attitude, which drives her to distraction. But he is also highly intelligent, with a keen, analytical mind and a practical, reasoned approach to everything, which, with a prevailing wind, can sometimes act as a brake on his partner’s more impulsive actions.

THE SETTING
A patchwork of fields, peat moor and marshland, dotted with picturesque villages and criss-crossed by man-made irrigation ditches or rhynes, the Somerset Levels covers an area of about 160,000 acres between the Mendips and Quantock Hills, in the County of Somerset. Sparsely populated outside the local towns of Bridgwater, Glastonbury and Street and prone to flooding, it is a haven for wild life, a wild, secret place with an atmospheric brooding stillness, which creeps into the very soul; a place where the booming call of a bittern or the beating of an owl’s wings in the mist is bound to fire the imagination of any self-respecting crime novelist, whose thoughts will invariably turn to… murder.

THE AUTHOR
A former police superintendent, with thirty years’ service. Since ‘turning to crime’, he has received critical media acclaim, including a welcome accolade from Inspector Morse’s creator, the late great, Colin Dexter, and he is now a prolific novelist with eleven published crime novels and an autobiography on his police career to his credit. His previous police experience has enabled him to provide a gritty realism to his thrillers and his Somerset Murder Series, featuring feisty female detective, Kate, and her partner, Hayden, has gone from strength to strength, attracting interest in the United States as well as in the UK.

New Scottish crime fiction. PENITENT by Pete Brassett

Out now on Kindle. Just 99p/99c for launch, the latest standalone in the Munro and West murder mystery series. PENITENT by Pete Brassett.

When the known stalker of a young woman is arrested for her murder, it should be an open-and-shut case for DI Charlie West.
A woman is found bludgeoned to death in a swimming pool. A pensioner who disappeared many moons ago turns up out of the blue. A cockeyed boxer has more success outside the ring than in it.
What connects these events may or may not be the clue DI Charlie West is looking for to solve the latest murder on her patch.
With her mentor James Munro recovering from heart bypass surgery, she will have to rely on her own wits and those of her trusted team to progress the investigation.
But just when West has a likely suspect in custody and looks set to finally cut the apron strings, Munro returns to the scene – his enforced repose having done little to dent his appetite for the finer and richer things in life – with an oblique angle on the case.
Has West got it right, or will her suspect go free and the investigation have to start from square one?

It is not long before other body parts are found. This time in a lake. Is this coincidence or the work of a serial killer?
Will the new DI discover the truth to the case before Tanya? Or will experience win out in the end?

Kashmir, 1967. “Ten-year-old Jaya Vaidya sets her heart on becoming a doctor, following in the footsteps of her beloved father. This is completely unthinkable to her relatives and the local community, who find her ambitions deeply unsuitable for a woman. Then a devastating earthquake brings Jaya’s world crashing down. Her family do not survive.

She is sent to live with relatives in Delhi who attempt to marry her off in secret – a move which would thwart her career forever. In an adventure that will take her across continents and cultures, Jaya must escape an arranged marriage and leave her only remaining family to fulfil her destiny.

Against all the odds, she plans to return to the Vale of Kashmir as a doctor. But will she ever succeed? And if she does, will the now devastated and conflict-torn valley be recognisable from the idyllic Kashmir she knew as a child?

A searing record of cultural shift, ‘The Giants Look Down’ explores the differences between Britain and its former colony through one woman’s struggle. It is a vividly evoked journey of courage and hope.
