That settles it, thought Smith savagely. He shall be murdered, even if I have to do it myself!The Hardstaffe family are not the nicest people in the world.

Summary:

"Blue Murder is an absolute cracker, as ingenious as it is riotously funny" (Daily Telegraph) Blue Murder opens with Foreign Bodies, where Swinging London meets bourgeois Shrewsbury and the drinks are laced with cyanide. As the son of the household struggles to write his first play, a murder story is offered to him on a plate. The second half, A Game of Soldiers, is a Whitehall farce taking place in St James's Palace. The same dramatist has brought his complete play to be censored but The Lord Chamberlain's Men have a few shameful secrets of their own to hide, including a priapic guardsman.

Summary:

A car mowing its way through Flaxborough market (and almost over Constable Cowdry) dramatically signals the presence of fearless, crusading journalist - Clive Grail, bent on uncovering scandal in that town's quiet and overtly respectable back streets. In answer to published hints of revelations to come, the mayor issues a challenge of a bloodcurdling and - as Inspector Purbright patiently explains - illegal nature. However, the war of threats is not the worst of it. Those who play with blue films and blackmail often find themselves involved in more than they had bargained for; and soon Purbright finds himself striving to solve a much graver and more sinister crime... First published in 1979, Blue Murder is the tenth novel in the Flaxborough series and displays Watson's characteristic dry wit and striking observation. 'Flaxborough is Colin Watson's quiet English town whose outward respectability masks a seething pottage of greed, crime and vice...Mr Watson wields a delightfully witty pen dripped in acid.' Daily Telegraph 'Arguably the best, and certainly the most consistent of comic crime writers, delicately treading the line between wit and farce...Funny, stylish and good mysteries to boot.'

Summary:

Tea-Maven Theodosia Browning brews up trouble in the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs. Tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier Drayton Conneley are guests at a bird hunt styled in the precise manner of an English shooting party. Which means elevenses (sloe gin fizzes), gun loaders, the drawing of pegs, fine looking bird dogs, and shooting costumes of tweed, herringbone, and suede. But as gunshots explode like a riff of Black Cat firecrackers, another shot sounds too close for comfort to Theodosia and Drayton. Intrigued but worried, Theodosia wanders into the neighbor's lavender field where she discovers their host, Reginald Doyle, bleeding to death. His wife, Meredith, is beside herself with grief and begs Theodosia and Drayton to stay the night. But Theodosia awakens at 2:00A.M. to find smoke in her room and the house on fire. As the fire department screams in and the investigating sheriff returns, Meredith again pleads with Theodosia for help. As Theodosia investigates, fingers are pointed, secrets are uncovered, Reginald's daughter-in-law goes missing presumed drowned, and Meredith is determined to find answers via a séance. All the while Theodosia worries if she's made a mistake in inviting a prime suspect to her upscale Lavender Lady Tea. INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

Summary:

APRIL, 1861. As the Confederate cannon opens fire on Fort Sumter and the Civil War begins. A rebel officer on a courier run to the telegraph office, is murdered in a historic Charleston graveyard and his pouch of secret despatches stolen. How did he come to be there? Is it the work of a Union spy? Former Charleston Police Inspector and now Confederate Officer, Major Hugo Legare is assigned to the case. Meanwhile the civilian police arrest a young Jewish soldier, Simon Mendoza, and charge him with murder and espionage. The evidence against Mendoza is dangerously strong and anti-Semitic incitement fills the newspapers, feeding the fires of suspicion and bigotry. But Major Legare is not convinced. There are holes in the police case against Mendoza. Legare and his associate, scapegrace Irish nobleman Captain James Redmond, quickly turn up more than a few skeletons in the dead man's closet as well as a plethora of new suspects including a Boston abolitionist, the beautiful daughter of the city's most wealthy citizen, and one of their own brother officers. But while Legare hunts the killer through the gaslit streets of old Charleston, more bodies start piling up. Legare and Redmond must race against time to stop more murders and recover the vital documents which could change the course of the whole war.

Summary:

A fiery crash at a remote air force base in the Azores archipelago takes the lives of five USAF airmen and a civilian farmer. Captain Jim Welch joins the ensuing accident investigation. After a finding of pilot error, it is determined that the crash was no accident. Absent a logical explanation, a criminal investigation begins. Several suspects surface each having motive, means and opportunity. A briefcase found at the crash scene leads Welch and Alberto Zagame, an irascible local lawyer, through a complex web of evidence and relationships as the investigation unfolds on two continents. An apparent suicide is thought to provide answers, but an autopsy reveals that death also to be murder. The protagonist grasps the connection, and is certain he knows who the killer is, but not that he can prove it. He is very nearly another murder victim before the truth is revealed in a confrontation with the killer. The main characters are introduced in the early chapters, and flash backs examine their personas. Relationships are rooted in the aerial combat arena of WW II and the culture of pre war America. As the criminal investigation winds to its climax, a penetrating overview of the military justice system of the era is offered. History, mystery and romance along with an introduction to the islands beauty and Portuguese culture are all captured in this saga.

Summary:

The Man had only once followed her home in the evening, after she had been to a Blue Moon concert with Claire and Viv. Still, Elaine was not frightened. It amused her to have an admirer who was far too timid to approach. On that evening, she had been tempted to give him a fright, to swing round and confront him. Or she might look down from the top of the bank and ask him if he had now seen everything he wanted. But that would be like breaking the rules of a private game. Then, perhaps, The Man might become dangerous ... 'The book shows a bleak and unprepossessing gallery of villainous talent' Punch

The result is a powerful and frightening story about police corruption and Sydney's underworld.

Summary:

In the 1960s Jimmy Evans was one of Britain's leading safe-blowers, his own boss in an era when London's underworld was dominated by parasitical gangs such as the Krays and Richardsons. He had no gang affiliations, yet the Kray Twins respected him and treated him as an equal. To Jimmy they were just 'Mickey Mouse Mobsters'. In 1964 Jimmy's world fell apart. He discovered that his wife was having an affair with George Foreman, brother of the notorious gangland killer, Freddie Foreman. Caring nothing for 'Brown Bread' Fred's lethal reputation, Jimmy shotgunned George at his front door, depriving him of his manhood. Among the criminal fraternity this should have been accepted as a 'crime passionelle', but instead Freddie Foreman embarked on a bloody 10 year vendetta that embraced murder, assassination and arson. Foreman exploited his corrupt relationship with two leading Scotland Yard detectives who were his handlers, protectors and friends. As a result Jimmy was falsely branded 'Jack The Stripper', the perpetuator of the infamous 'Nude Murders'.
