Summary

Carla Turner has been drifting for all her thirty-two years. Worn down by the banality of rural life with an abusive husband and resigned to simple existence, she hardly seems capable of recognizing new adventure in the form of a man, even one as gorgeous as Brian DeCanto. But Brian understands the need for escape all too well. After accidentally shooting his boss, he is forced to take the murder’s sole witness – his boss’s ten-year-old son – on the run with him. Brian and Carla collide in an explosion of star-crossed lust that leads them from passionate fantasy into the harsh reality of the 1980s South and sweeps them to their final destiny.

    In six counties lie numerous bodies, all with one thing in common—a tie around the neck of each victim. With a multicounty task force set up, the Washburn County Sheriff's Office finds itself in the middle of the mayhem when the body of an unidentified woman is found in a nearby lake. 
    A well-meaning local man insists he knows the woman, yet all signs indicate he's mistaken. But when a Chicago homicide detective charges into town and tries to take over the investigation, the whole case turns upside down. 
    With the people of southeast Wisconsin afraid to go out after dark, the task force kicks its search into high gear, yet the body count continues to rise. Working diligently day and night, the team finally catches the madman nicknamed "The Necktie Killer." Relief spreads through the counties, and life goes back to normal—or does it? 
    No one sees what's coming next…

    Editorial Review: 
    "In southeast Wisconsin, women's lifeless bodies are turning up with ties around their necks, and the Necktie Killer soon leaves his calling card in Washburn County, where Detective Amber Monroe and her friends at the sheriff's department are working around the clock to put a stop to the killing rampage. But clues to the killer's identity are nearly nonexistent, the cops can't catch a break, and the killer seems destined to get away scot-free. Sutter fans know to expect a fast-paced, emotion-packed read, but this one will keep them racing through the pages until they reach the thoroughly unexpected conclusion."

    The genteel façade of London’s Hampstead is shattered by a series of terrifying murders, and the ensuing police hunt is threatened by internal politics, and a burgeoning love triangle within the investigative team. Pressurised by senior officers desperate for a result a new initiative is clearly needed, but what?
     
     
     
    Intellectual analysis and police procedure vie with the gut instinct of ‘copper’s nose’, and help appears to offer itself from a very unlikely source – a famous fictional detective. A psychological profile of the murderer allows the police to narrow down their search, but will Scotland Yard lose patience with the team before they can crack the case?
     
    Praised by fellow authors and readers alike, this is a truly original crime story, speaking to a contemporary audience yet harking back to the Golden Age of detective fiction. Intelligent, quirky and mannered, it has been described as ‘a love letter to the detective novel’. Above it all hovers Hampstead, a magical village evoking the elegance of an earlier time, and the spirit of mystery-solving detectives.
     
     
     
    Guy Fraser-Sampson is an established writer best known for his series of ‘Mapp and Lucia’ novels which have been featured on BBC Radio 4 and optioned by BBC television. This is his debut work of detective fiction, and the first title in the Hampstead Murders series.

    "D.J. Donaldson is superb at spinning medical fact into gripping suspense. With his in-depth knowledge of science and medicine, he is one of very few authors who can write with convincing authority." Tess Gerritsen, NY Times best-selling author of the Rizzoli & Isles novels Andy Broussard, the plump and proud New Orleans medical examiner, obviously loves food. Less apparent to the casual observer is his hatred of murderers. Together with his gorgeous sidekick, psychologist Kit Franklyn, the two make a powerful, although improbable, mystery solving duo. Strange lesions found in the brain of a dead man have forensic pathologist Broussard stumped. Even more baffling are the corpse’s fingerprints. They belong to Ronald Cicero, a lifer at Angola State Prison… an inmate the warden insists is still there. Broussard sends psychologist Kit Franklyn to find out who is locked up in Cicero’s cell. But an astonishing discovery at the jail and an attempt on her life almost has Kit sleeping with the crawfish in a bayou swamp. And Broussard, making a brilliant deduction about another murder, may soon be digging his own grave. D.J. Donaldson’s brilliant first-hand knowledge of forensics, combined with a sultry flavor of New Orleans, equals a series that provides "sheer pulse-pounding reading excitement" (The Clarion Ledger) and "genuinely heart-stopping suspense" (Publisher’s Weekly). With ingenuity and authentic detail, Donaldson presents a first class forensic procedural within an irresistibly delectable mystery.

    Charlie Davies is about to face her worst nightmare: she's going back to high school. Following the death of a local schoolgirl, Charlie must go undercover to find out who is dealing drugs to students. Not only does this mean heading back to class, but she must also get to know the girl's friends - who happen to be cheerleaders. Time to break out the pom-poms. 
    While at school, Charlie runs into her ex-boyfriend, now a science teacher, and can't tell if he's just being friendly or if there's something a little off about him. And naturally, police officer James McKenzie is working the case too - which is kind of awkward, seeing as he and Charlie haven't really spoken since The Incident.  
    This is not adding up to be a fun case. That's some maths even Charlie can do. 
    ***Contains some swearing.*** 
     
    'Higher Learning' is the fourth book in The Charlie Davies Mysteries. If you enjoy soft-boiled mysteries with a snarky heroine, give this series a try!
