Death Of An Author (MP3 CD)
E.C.R. Lorac / Simon Mattacks

Vivian Lestrange - celebrated author of the popular mystery novel The Charterhouse Case and total recluse - has apparently dropped off the face of the Earth. Reported missing by his secretary Eleanor, whom Inspector Bond suspects to be the author herself looking for publicity, it appears that crime is afoot when Lestrange's housekeeper is also found to have disappeared. Bond and Warner of Scotland Yard set to work to investigate a murder with no body and a potentially fictional victim, as E.C.R. Lorac spins a twisting tale full of wry humour and red herrings, poking some fun at her contemporary reviewers who long suspected the Lorac pseudonym to belong to a man (since a woman could apparently not have written mysteries the way that she did).

The Acapulco (Audio CD)
Simone Buchholz / Imogen Church

A serial killer is on the loose in Hamburg, targeting dancers from The Acapulco, a club in the city's red-light district, removing their scalp as a gruesome trophy and replacing their hair with plastic wigs. Chastity Riley is the state prosecutor responsible for crimes in the district, and she's working alongside the police as they investigate. Can she get inside the mind of the killer? Her strength is thinking like a criminal; her weaknesses are pubs, bars, younger men and dingy light, but as Chastity searches for love and a flamboyant killer - battling her demons and the dark, foggy Hamburg weather - she hits dead end after dead end, and it may be too late. For everyone...

Blotto,Twinks And The Suspicious Guests (Audio CD)
Simon Brett / Simon Brett

An explosion of disgust - 'What? You mean the Earl does it for money?' - from Blotto is provoked when Twinks informs him of the activities of the Earl of Woking. The gentleman in question is the owner of Clusters, a stately home not far from Tawcester Towers, who has been renting out his property for private functions - and CHARGING his guests! The discovery of this appalling lapse in aristocratic behaviour sets Blotto and Twinks off on their latest adventure. Determined to find out more about the Earl of Woking's activities, they discover the existence of a sinister group called Aristotours - brokers between impoverished owners of stately homes and the common people, offering a taste of the high life to such plebeian characters as stockbrokers, surgeons and solicitors. And as if this were not bad enough, they discover that Aristotours has its beady eye upon Tawcester Towers itself!

Kim M. Watt / Patricia Gallimore

Suspicious deaths on the Skipton city council don't sound as though they should have anything at all to do with the Toot Hansell Women's Institute, and DI Adams would rather like to keep it that way. But when the councillor for Toot Hansell becomes the latest victim, Alice Martin, chair of the W.I. and RAF Wing Commander (ret.), steps straight in to take his place. Before DI Adams can so much as say lemon drizzle cake the ladies of the Women's Institute are lurking around farmyards in the company of dragons, farmers are vanishing, the invisible dog's developed a caffeine dependence, and Alice is already in as deep as she can get. In deep, and facing a killer that seems to know far too much about her. Enough, perhaps, to turn the tables...

Kerry Watts / Cathleen McCarron

Forty years ago, the name Rachel McMahon was synonymous with evil. After killing four men in the most brutal of ways, the world rejoiced as she was locked up. Now Rachel has done her time, repented for her crimes, and is ready to live a quiet life back in Scotland under a new name. But then the killings start again. As the bodies of fathers and sons appear on the streets of Perth, their deaths echoing those from Rachel's murder spree four decades ago, DCI Hazel Todd and her squad are called in to track down a murderer taunting them at every step. Could Rachel really have reformed - or is a copycat killer trying to finish what she started? And as the murders get closer to Hazel, it's a race against time to stop a psychopath with their own twisted agenda...
