    Gloucestershire, 1925. A week-long house party in the country—why not? Lady Adelaide has nothing else to do, now that her year of mourning for her unfaithful husband is up and her plans to rekindle her romantic life have backfired. But when her hostess is found dead on the conservatory floor, Addie knows just who to call—Detective Inspector Devenand Hunter of Scotland Yard.
     
    Dev may not want to kiss Addie again, but he's anxious to solve the crime. Who would want to kill Pamela, the beautiful wife of one of Britain's Great War heroes? Certainly not her devoted and wheelchair-bound husband, Sir Hugh Fernald. The other guests seem equally innocent and improbable.
     
    But despite all appearances, something is very wrong at Fernald Hall—there's a body buried in the garden, and the governess has fallen down the stairs to her death. Who's next? Addie and Dev must work together to stop another murder, and they have some help thanks to Rupert, Addie's late and unlamented husband. Rupert needs to make amends for his louche life on earth, and what better way to earn his celestial wings than catch a killer?

    The award-winning first Parlabane thriller mixes paranoia and politics for “a lean, nasty, fun little page-turner” about a powerful Scottish scion’s murder (The New York Times).   Investigative journalist Jack Parlabane has visited plenty of crime scenes, but whoever carved up Dr. Jeremy Ponsonby wanted to send a particularly revolting message. As jet-lagged, hungover, and nauseated as he may be, Parlabane knows this was no break-in gone wrong. Dr. Sarah Slaughter, anaesthetist and ex-wife of the victim, is beginning to believe it, too. Ponsonby had plenty of secrets, but the motivations for her ex-husband’s murder cut even deeper than they can imagine.   Are Parlabane and Slaughter a match for the skullduggery? It depends on how much more of the black morals and full-color bloodshed of the Edinburgh medical society they can stomach in this “thrillingly unpleasant” winner of the First Blood Award for Best First Crime Novel of the Year (Esquire).

    On private investigator Katerina Carter’s trip to a remote island aboard a luxurious yacht, she suspects the boat’s slick and charming owner is hiding a dark secret. Kat tries to warn her friends that something is very wrong with their host and that his moneymaking scheme smells fishy. 
    Why is she the only one who thinks he’s not being completely honest? 
    While exploring the island, Kat uncovers a sinister cult, the Aquarian Foundation, and searches for its rumored buried treasure. The cult swindled people out of their money and, too often, their lives. It's a situation eerily similar to her own. She knows that when something sounds too good to be true, it is. 
    As Kat’s warnings fall on deaf ears, she uncovers a horrifying truth that places her loved ones in mortal danger. Now it’s a race against the clock for Kat to expose a killer before he strikes again. 
    Blowout is the third book in the Katerina Carter Fraud Legal Thriller series and appeals to crime thriller fans of James Patterson and Michael Connelly.
