THE MAN IN BLACK.
England, 1943. Commanding Officer Hulford-Prandy forces rebel Jack to handle BLISS, a deadly chemical weapon. Jack falls in love with radar operator Gin, but so does Hulford-Prandy who inveigles her into the Special Operations Executive, sending her to destroy a munitions factory in France. She’s captured and disappears.
Forty years later. City high-flyer Alexis meets three veiled women at her mother’s funeral who want to know what happened to her mother, Gin, during the war. Alexis knows nothing, but when she’s scattering Gin’s ashes in the ghost village of Tyneham, as requested by Gin, she meets a loner, Aidan, who claims BLISS is still there.
As Alexis and Aidan get closer to the truth, they find their lives in danger. When he enters the live firing range where BLISS is located, his preoccupation becomes deadly.
The Punished is a journey in four parts. Jack’s conversion from rebellious eighteen-year-old to peace campaigner; his son Aidan’s search for the truth; Gin’s journey from naive but plucky eighteen-year-old to secret war hero, risking her life many times over with a grenade in her pocket; and her daughter Alexis’s transformation from downtrodden to triumphant and courageous woman.

Til Death Us Do Part
It was supposed to be a relaxing weekend off, attending a wedding in the Lake District, but it soon becomes a nightmare for Joe Murray. Not only has he had to shut down the Lazy Luncheonette for the weekend, but it’s intolerably hot and Brenda is in a bad mood and won’t say why.
As if that’s not bad enough, the body of a photographer is found hanging by his own camera strap in a disused, derelict boathouse.
Who was Adam Pitman, what was his beef with bridesmaid Darlene? How well did the bride know him, what secret is the landlord of the Waterside Inn hiding?
Questions, questions, questions.
And Joe is short of time to find the answers.
It’s MURDER amongst the white lace and bouquets.
Coming, June 21 2017.
One man must stop a psychopath in his tracks…
Chief Inspector Jack Grayson is hunting a serial killer terrorizing London, a stalker who watches his prey carefully and displays the bodies of his young female victims brazenly. But Grayson has a problem – only one lead and scant evidence – and the body count is rising.
He discovers that an unsolved 18-year-old murder case bears all the hallmarks of the current killings, but he still can’t seem to find a single, obvious suspect, and he is so far unable to outthink a master predator.
Grayson must catch a hunter who knows how to outwit the police – a showman intent on completing his macabre collection. But he’s missing a vital clue, a critical piece of the puzzle. When he finally discovers the killer’s identity, he’s completely unprepared for the fallout…
A house fire on a sweltering summer morning comes as no surprise, but when a body is found in the ruins, the Sanford police soon have the prime suspect in their sights. Evidence mounts, an arrest is made, and Joe Murray is at his wits’ end before helps comes from an unexpected quarter.
How could all the evidence be wrong? There’s only one way. It was carefully constructed to point in the wrong direction, and Joe and his partner in crime-detection must pull out all the stops to prove it.
The fourteenth Sanford 3rd Age Club Mystery, and it’s Joe’s toughest, most dangerous case yet.
