Trouble In Topsham (Audio CD)
Harriet Hicks / Patricia Gallimore

Wind, rain and hail lashed the cottage. And Bun had just run out of knitting wool. What to do? Far too wet for walking up to the shops, she decided to have a poke at their drawing-room walls. Surely there must be alcoves hidden either side of that huge fireplace? Digging revealed a woman's body getting rid of it should have been easy, but for a young detective and a scoop-happy newspaper reporter. But when Bun's younger sister has afternoon tea with their murder suspect, Bun is worried for her safety. The only solution? For the retired schoolmarm and one-time lady's companion to set about the task of plotting a fatal accident...a very tricky business indeed when both are singularly lacking in experience!

The Ring Of Death (Audio CD)
Sally Spencer / Penelope Freeman

DCI Monkia Paniatowski has seen dozens of murder victims in her time, but nothing could have prepared her for the corpse in the woods. It is not so much that the man's throat has been slashed that shocks her, nor even the way he is naked - it is the way he has been carefully posed. Paniatowski has been assigned a new sergeant, who she does not entirely trust. Worse yet, an old enemy from the secret service announces he will be monitoring her every move. But why is a spy interested in a local murder? When a second victim is found it becomes clear to Monika that whatever the murderer's message is, he will not stop killing until she understands.

Blonde Bombshell (Audio CD)
Tom Holt / Ray Sawyer

The third planet out from the star was blue, with green splodges. Dirt. Oh, the bomb thought. And then its courage, determination and nobility-of-spirit subroutines cut in, overriding everything else, adrenalizing its command functions and bypassing its cyberphrenetic nodes. Here goes, said the bomb to itself. Calibrate navigational pod. Engage primary thrusters. Ready auxiliary drive. It knew, in that moment, that its own doom was near; because it was giving itself orders, and it wasn't putting in any 'the's. That was what you did, apparently, when the moment came. You could also turn on a flashing red beacon and a siren, but mercifully these were optional. Oh #//+! thought the bomb, and surged on towards Dirt like an avenging angel.

David Donachie / Peter Wickham

1796... The long-awaited return of the Bucephalas to the safety of Cinque Ports is interrupted by a disastrous engagement in the Channel. The looming shape of a merchantman becalmed in fog presents an almost irresistible allure. But for Harry Ludlow and his battle-weary crew, the pursuit of one last easy prize leads to a desperate fight. Yet, it is events closer to home that present the greatest danger. As the Bucephalas seeks refuge in the Solent, the red flags fluttering from the topmasts signal that His Majesty's Navy has reached a state of full mutiny.

Shrine To Murder (Audio CD)
Roger Silverwood / Gordon Griffin

Detective Inspector Michael Angel and his team of regulars are searching for a serial killer on the loose in the Yorkshire town of Bromersley. The available clues are as sparse as they are puzzling: A character in early Roman attire is observed at every murder and a laurel leaf is left on every corpse. DNA evidence links a woman of oriental origin to the murders but this profile doesn't fit any of the suspects. The investigations become more mystifying as Inspector Angel races against the clock to find the killer. Can he prevent further bloodshed?
