No Second Chance by Bill Kitson DS Kate Jackson is distraught when a sure-fire prosecution case against a celebrity accused of rape breaks down. The failed prosecution is an excuse for her superiors to move Kate to another police force, where, putting the past behind her, she successfully rebuilds her career. Then the celebrity who was acquitted all those years ago is found dead on Kate's beat - and, suddenly, she finds herself under suspicion of murder ... Libby Sarjeant and the Mystery of the Errant Emeralds by Lesley Cookman Libby Sarjeant and her colleagues who run the Oast Theatre are surprised and somewhat apprehensive when the great Miranda Love decides to make her unexpected comeback at their little venue. Miranda is unquestionably a brilliant actress, but she has a fearsome reputation as a diva - and, as rehearsals get underway, Libby and her friends realise that Miranda Love will do anything to get what she wants ... Goodbye, My Darling by Cara Cooper Sometimes life can seem too perfect. Perfect home, perfect garden, perfect husband ... but what if it's all just an illusion? What if that perfect husband is plotting the perfect murder? And once things have changed for good, do you stick around or say goodbye? Old Bones by J.J. Campbell Amateur detective Charles de Lacy is drawn into a case of gangland intrigue when he agrees to meet his old sparring partner, DS Susan McIntyre. McIntyre reveals the recent deathbed confession of a prominent former criminal, an associate of notorious North London family the Whadcoats. It seems there is a body buried in a field just outside London - the victim of a gang execution in the 1970s - but on examination the story seems impossible. De Lacy investigates - with dramatic unforeseen results ... Meteors and Myths by Marsali Taylor Cass Lynch is sailing her yacht Khalida when she hears a desperate Mayday call over the ship's radio: a woman's husband has just disappeared overboard. Cass heads towards the distressed woman, Anita, and comforts her until help arrives. But something doesn't seem quite right ... Cass, together with DI Gavin Macrae, investigates whether Anita's loss is really all that much of a blow to her ... The Adventure of the Dead Wild Bore by Andrea Frazer The recently-formed private detective agency of (Sherman) Holmes and (John) Garden is going from strength to strength. Holmes invites Garden to a meeting of the Quaker Street Irregulars, a society for die-hard fans of his near-namesake, Conan Doyle's own Sherlock Holmes. Garden is somewhat taken aback by the fervour with which members of the Irregulars defend their opinions on the great fictional consulting detective - but nobody expects a run-of-the-mill disagreement to turn into brutal murder ...

In the third hilarious, unforgettable installment in internationally bestselling author Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg’s League of Pensioners series, Martha and the League’s latest escapade has them headed for the French Riviera in what is sure to be the most daring caper of the summer. Martha and her friends are sitting comfortably in Sweden… a little too comfortably. Determined to do more for their fellow pensioners—and jazz things up for themselves—they’re up to their usual antics: bank robberies, money laundering, and figuring out how to disappear in a garbage-truck-cum-getaway-car. They have their sights sets on building a resort village for seniors, but that’s going to take money. Lots of money. While stalking their millionaire neighbor, Carl, on Facebook, Anna-Gretta scrolls through his photos—all of them featuring luxury yachts on the Riviera—and an idea comes to her on how to solve the League’s cash problem. When she shares the hare-brained scheme with the others, they’re all aboard. Their plan to cheat billionaires out of their luxury yachts in the south of France’s sun-bleached Saint-Tropez soon turns into the heist of their lives with the police hot on their heels—as well as a couple of ruthless ex-cons. Now this wily group of walker-equipped conspirators are hell-bent on accomplishing their dangerous mission—no matter the consequences…
