A Taste for Blood, by David Stuart Davies
 
Two plots running parallel... you won't see what's coming
 
Two laser-sharp detectives, two thought-provoking cases and two skilful plots.
 
Featuring private investigator Johnny (One Eye) Hawke, and his one-time colleague in the police force Detective David Llewellyn. Llewellyn is investigating the chilling crimes of a top psychiatrist and his scheming patient who the doctor believes has knuckled under his authority. In the meantime, Hawke is on the case of a mysterious suicide in Edgware Road... soon discovered as not your average suicide.
 
The guts and insight of the two investigators bring both cases to a head - though you won't even begin to see how until you have turned the last pages.
 
Ellipsis, by Nikki Dudley
 
"Right on time," Daniel Mansen mouths to Alice as she pushes him to his death. Haunted by these words, Alice becomes obsessed with discovering how a man she didn't know could predict her actions. On the day of the funeral, Daniel's cousin, Thom, finds a piece of paper in Daniel's room detailing the exact time and place of his death.
 
As Thom and Alice both search for answers, they become knotted together in a story of obsession, hidden truths and the gaps in everyday life that can destroy or save a person.
 
Ellipsis is a disturbing thriller stemming from what is left unsaid, what bounces around in the mind and evaporates when trying to remember. Can there be a conclusion when no-one seems to know the truth?
 
Lynnwood, by Thomas Brown, was a finalist in the People's Book Prize
 
The unthinkable is happening in Lynnwood – a village with centuries of guilt on its conscience.
 
Who wouldn’t want to live in an idyllic village in the English countryside like Lynnwood? With its charming pub, old dairy, friendly vicar, gurgling brooks, and  its old paths with memories of simpler times.But behind the conventional appearance of Lynnwood’s villagers, only two sorts of people crawl out of the woodwork: those who hunt and those who are prey. Visitors are watched by an entity between the trees where the Dark Ages have endured to the twenty-first century. Families who have lived behind stone walls and twitching curtains know that the gusts of wind blowing through the nearby alluring Forest bring with them a stench of delightful hunger only Lynnwood can appease.

    An exceptionally talented undercover policewoman, Grace Flint nearly dies in a botched sting operation. Months later, physically healed but psychologically scarred, she gets an unexpected clue about her attacker, and disappears on a mission of revenge—unaware that she is about to pull the first string that will unravel a vastly complex web of international treachery, extortion, and murder. Pursuing her, using whatever clues he can find, is Harry Cohen, the former chief legal advisor to the British Security Services, who has been drawn back in as an impartial outsider because everybody is worried about Flint’s safety. Or are they? Much to his surprise, he finds himself tugging on a string of his own that leads him high into governments on both sides of the Atlantic—and into a conspiracy with unexpected resonances, not only for him but for Flint. For there are many kinds of betrayal, and some of them are worse than others….

    An Iranian, a Bohemian, and an Irishman walk into a bar. It's not a joke. It’s Conor McBride’s latest mission.   
    Conor McBride has made a bargain he may live to regret, if he manages to live through it, at all. Lured by the chance to reboot his career as a violinist, he’s accepted a mission to Prague, agreeing to extract a defecting Iranian agent in exchange for the chance to perform while he’s there. His boss has promised a simple, stitched-up mission, but as he might have expected, it soon unravels into chaos and confusion. 
    The Iranian has endangered his own life with a shocking indiscretion, and a suspicious MI6 agent is hatching a plot that might spiral into an international crisis. It’s a dangerous combination, and on top of it all the partner Conor brought with him is a freshly trained operative he couldn’t persuade to stay home. 
    A year earlier, he’d arrived at Kate Fitzpatrick’s country inn like a fugitive in the night, with little to say for himself. In the months that followed she’d poked her way through all his cautious evasions and given up secrets of her own. Conor hopes their relationship is on track to become a different sort of partnership, but his desire to shield Kate from the covert side of his life was no match for her determination to share in its risks. 
    Before long it’s clear Conor is going to need all the new skills Kate can offer. Within hours of their arrival in Prague, a mysterious stranger is trailing their every more, and they are discovering the fabled lanes of this beautiful old-world city are not half as twisted as the secrets everyone is hiding.
