Summary

Mr. and Mrs. North chase a gunman who killed an author in the middle of his book launch Looking around the Hotel Dumont, Pamela North sees plenty of people she might like to murder. That’s what happens when she’s left alone at a book party, bored to tears. Her husband is a publisher, and when he’s late to an event, all she can do is look from critic to critic and think that, as messy as it can be, homicide has its advantages. She needn’t worry; a good killing will come along soon.   The party to celebrate Anthony Payne’s latest release is just winding down when the shooter strikes. Payne is midsentence when he drops, a bullet hole in his bald head. And with a single shot, there’s more than enough blood to wash away all the evening’s tedium—and send the Norths on the hunt for a long-distance killer.  Murder Has Its Points is the 25th book in the Mr. and Mrs. North Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate the man responsible before he can strike again.

    A British counterterrorism agent forms an extraordinary alliance with the IRA’s most skillful assassin in this international bestselling thriller.  A leaky old ship has reliably ferried tons of important freight from America to the Old Country in its decades of service to the Irish Republican Army, from automatic rifles to deadly assassins. Now it is berthing with especially precious cargo: couriers holding briefcases filled with millions of crisp American dollars. In one blinding firefight, the shipment is hijacked. The terrorists trust only one man to go after their money—Jig the dancer, their most reliable assassin, who kills without harming the innocent.   Hot on Jig’s trail is Scotland Yard’s renegade detective Frank Pagan, who suspects an inside job. The dark path of hunter and hunted takes the two men through the minefields of the IRA’s war and across the Atlantic to America, where Pagan and Jig are forced to postpone their duel and work together to solve a savage puzzle. Jig is the 1st book in the Frank Pagan Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

But the party is abruptly ended when the body of an eleven year-old child, the son of one of Jeff's neighbours, is found in the woods nearby. As the covers are lifted on the secrets held by those living around him he wonders if a child killer could be actually living on his street. Whilst he tries to take his relationship with his deputy, DI Rebecca Stockton, to a deeper level the investigation brings him back into confrontation with his old nemesis Bernie Connelly who is one of Manchester's most notorious gangsters and has a personal interest in finding the child killer, leading him to pick off a list of paedophiles who are the prime suspects. Added to everything else is a case of political corruption that may or may not be linked to the murders and this proves to be one of Jeff Barton's most complicated and yet most urgent of cases to solve.
