Summary

Fans of atmospheric police procedurals will love watching Glasgow vividly come to life with the shocking twists and turns that have made Alex Gray an international bestseller 
When a dead body is fished out of Glasgow’s River Clyde the morning after an office celebration, it looks like a case of accidental death. But an anonymous telephone call and a forensic toxicology test give Detective Chief Inspector William Lorimer reason to think otherwise. Probing deeper into the life and business of the deceased accountant, a seemingly upright member of the community, Lorimer finds only more unanswered questions.  
What is the secret his widow seems to be concealing? Was the international accounting firm facing financial difficulties? What has become of the dead man’s protégé who has disappeared in New York? And when another employee is found dead in her riverside flat these questions become much more disturbing. Lorimer must cope not only with deceptions from the firm, but also with suspicions from those far closer to home . . .

Because to solve Gardner Redstone's murder, Rachel must disguise herself as a homeless woman and live on the streets, searching for the dispossessed man witnesses say made the fatal push.

    International bestselling author Campbell Armstrong sweeps readers back to the psychedelic sixties in an atmospheric, page-turning thriller about a fugitive ex-hippie who must run for his life when he is caught up in a political conspiracy  Many years ago, Harry Tennant managed to escape San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury hippie scene relatively intact, although his memory of that time is largely wiped out. Now Harry’s peaceful life is overturned when his upstate–New York marijuana farm is raided by the police and he’s thrown in jail.   Released on bail, Harry is contacted by Alison Seagrove, a reporter investigating a conspiracy connected to Harry’s hazy past. When she shows him an old photo of himself and four others, Harry barely recognizes himself and can’t remember his friends’ names—or why the photograph has global political implications. To avoid prison and stay one step ahead of the killers pursuing him, Harry undertakes a chilling journey back to Haight-Ashbury to unlock the mystery behind his shattered memory.

    MAID OF THE MANOR - The Mysterious Case of Cassandra EvansWalking through the large hallways of the manor house, Maid Cassandra Evans found herself humming a soft tune as she walked with the trolley in front of her. She was easily in her middle ages, and had worked in the Manor House for almost 20 years, and was perhaps the senior most maid in the entire of the Manor, but she didn’t care for all that. She had a job to do and a Master to take care of, her own master that had saved her from what should have been instant death and misery. One day, when Ms. Cassandra was nowhere to be found, she was searched around the whole manor. Finally, in the main lounge of the Manor house, from the ceiling, there were 2 ropes hanging down, both of them tied up into the Chandeliers. Both of those ropes had 2 bodies tied onto it, via the necks, or at least one of them. One was the body of a steward and a driver, in his black and white dress but with enough blood on him for it to splatter on the ground, and the other was the pale, broken figure of Cassandra Evans, naked as the day she was born with a lot of cuts and other types of marks against her skin, her eyes black, and her lips split. From what they could see, her body was tied via her legs, and she was alive, shuddering and shivering, her breath coming in gasps and her eyes already having run out of tears. Her nose was bleeding and so was her stomach.The murder mystery grows with every passing minute. The police have a hard time pinpointing on the killer.

    He’s death for hire…
     
    Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
     
    She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.
