Summary

Two vicious ex-cons are now walking free—and one cop is close behind—in a novel by the author who “knows the London crime scene like the back of his hand” (The Times).   In 2005 London, two teenage boys commit a crime so horrendous that the entire nation is shocked and outraged. When Abigail Riley’s body is found in an underground shelter, DS Fraser Harvey finds himself hunting her killers—whose depravity is matched only by their naivety.   Eleven years later, when the young murderers are released to faraway countries with new identities, Harvey remains haunted by the case, convinced that one—or both—will kill again.   Concerned that he is the only thing standing in the way of more deaths of innocents, he must decide how far will he go to stop them—and at what cost to himself and all the others whose lives were changed forever by Abigail’s terrible fate.  Praise for the crime thrillers of Luke Delaney:   “The feeling of being at the heart of a police investigation seeps from every page.” —Daily Mail   “Scary authenticity.” —The Sun   Addictive . . . captivates and chills.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

    The gripping conclusion to the historical trilogy featuring Stuart-era healer Frances Gorges—from the author of The King’s Witch and The Devil’s Slave.   Life has never been quiet for Frances Gorges at the court of King James, but after finding herself at the center of plots and conspiracies for many years both as an accused witch and a secret Catholic, by 1614 Frances hopes to distance herself from the decadence and ruthlessness of the aging and venal monarch. However, when a handsome stranger appears at a courtier’s country estate, he immediately draws the wandering eyes of the King, throwing the established order of the court into upheaval. George Villiers is ambitious and violent, ready to take down whatever—and whoever—stands in his way, including Frances and her husband Sir Thomas Tyringham. New friends and old alliances—from Francis Bacon and Prince Charles to Sir Walter Raleigh—will offer Frances ways to resist the treachery of Villiers, but danger and Catholic plotting always lurks just around the corner, and sometimes from unexpected sources. With her meticulous eye for detail and evocative storytelling, Tracy Borman’s The Fallen Angel is a riveting conclusion to her trilogy set during the first Stuart monarch’s reign.  Praise for The Devil’s Slave   “Gripping historical fiction with a daring character in Lady Frances.”—New York Journal of Books  Praise for The King’s WitchNamed a Best Summer Debut by Library Journal   “Vivid . . . Everything you would want to read in a novel, ranging from palatial royals and intrigues to betrayals to a love story.”—Washington Book Review, “Essential Novels for This Summer”
