Summary

A charming and cheeky murder mystery, perfect for fans of Phryne Fisher, The Thursday Murder Club and The Tea Ladies.
A twist
PI Edwina 'Ted' Bristol's latest case is proving complicated. Ballerina Giselle Tereiti is the target of a stalker, but she's also the ex-wife of Ted's new flame homicide detective Spike. While the case is a win for Ted's agency, it means she's forced to distance herself from Spike.
A turn
As Ted goes undercover via the dating apps in pursuit of suspects, the stalker ups the ante with a disturbing break-in at Giselle's home.
Meanwhile, talented crafter Cicely Bunting is desperate to locate her husband, Duncan, who disappeared while surfing a year ago. Cicely refuses to believe that he's dead, and she's counting on Ted to find him.
A dance with murder …
As Ted closes in on the stalking culprit and her relationship with Spike hits rock-bottom, Cicely's case takes a bizarre twist – and then a murder turns everything upside down.

    "Derelictions are horror stories told in ways you may not have encountered before.Something is missing from the silent places and worlds inside these stories. Something has been removed, taken flight, or been destroyed. Us.Derelictions are weird tales that tell of aftermaths and of new and liminal places. Each location has witnessed catastrophe, infernal visitations, or unearthly transformations. But across these landscapes of murder, genocide and invasion, crucial evidence remains. And it is the task of the reader to sift through ruin and ponder the residual enigma, to behold and wonder at the full horror that was visited upon mankind.A dead ship carries a terrible cargo across a black ocean. Below deck, signs of slaughter and devotion await to tell a ghastly tale.On a barren and hostile shore a great ritual has been enacted successfully. The act of a god may have taken place. But what kind of deity did this?An eerily silent campsite. No sign of life. Look closer and observe the grisly artefacts of annihilation.In the very foundations of this dreadful house, was something supernormal called upon to abolish life so mercilessly?Wyrd contains seven derelictions, original horror stories from the author of 'Hasty for the Dark' and 'Some Will Not Sleep' (winner of The British Fantasy Award for Best Collection).Praise for Adam Nevill's short stories:"Beautifully crafted, original and complete works." 'This is Horror' on 'Some Will Not Sleep'."His stories weave their way inside of your head and plant seeds of doubt and terror. He is a master of creating oppressive, creepy atmospheres and of taking your imagination to places you would rather he didn’t." 'The Grim Reader' on 'Hasty for the Dark'."In 'Some Will Not Sleep' nothing is sacred, nothing is safe, and goodness me, if you like horror fiction you’re going to absolutely love every damn minute."

    In this “gem” of a second novel based on the hit tv series, a British detective inspector must solve the suspicious death of a supermodel (Daily Express).   When Polly Carter is found dead at the foot of a cliff, it looks like suicide, but DI Richard Poole is not convinced. Famous for her looks and wild party-girl lifestyle, her friends are adamant she would never have killed herself.   Seconded from London to the Caribbean island of Saint Marie, DI Poole is already at his wit’s end with the blinding heat. Unpicking the conflicting motives of a number of suspects and their stream of alibis is infuriating enough; a visit from his mother is the cherry on the cake.   An absolutely gripping crime thriller, The Killing of Polly Carter is perfect for fans of Midsomer Murders and Agatha Christie.   “I love Robert Thorogood’s writing.” —Peter James, international bestselling author of Picture You Dead
