A village in Eastern Ontario, Canada is the site for Murder On The Hill. Emily Blossom is the unlikely sleuth, a little old lady with a hankering for adventure. With the reluctant assistance of antique dealer, Pete Picken, Emily embarks upon a mission to solve their small town's only murder, much to the amusement of the locals, the dismay of the constabulary, and the disapproval of her cat, Charlie. The novel clothes its dark side in the human tragedy of the Second World War, its ramifications of guilt and forgiveness, and the sordid resurgence of the Neo-Nazi movement in Canada. Emily and Pete even venture as far as the big city of Montreal, which creates an amusing contrast between small-town thinking and metropolitan anonymity. This lighthearted cozy-mystery is a good read with a satisfying aftertaste.

In Hannah Dennison's Murder at Honeychurch Hall, Kat Stanford is just days away from starting her dream antique business with her newly widowed mother Iris when she gets a huge shock. Iris has recklessly purchased a dilapidated carriage house at Honeychurch Hall, an isolated country estate located several hundred miles from London.

When the nanny goes missing, and Vera, the loyal housekeeper ends up dead in the grotto, suspicions abound. Throw in a feisty, octogenarian countess, a precocious seven year old who is obsessed with the famous fighter pilot called Biggles, and a treasure trove of antiques, and there is more than one motive for murder. As Iris's past comes back to haunt her, Kat realizes she hardly knows her mother at all. A when the bodies start piling up, it is up to Kat to unravel the tangled truth behind the murders at Honeychurch Hall.

A New York Times Best Seller! In 1947, the brutal, sadistic murder of a beautiful young woman named Elizabeth Short led to the largest manhunt in LA history. The killer teased and taunted the police and public for weeks, but his identity stayed a mystery, and the murder remained the most tantalizing unsolved case of the last century, until this book revealed the bizarre solution. Steve Hodel, a retired LAPD detective who was a private investigator, took up the case, reviewing the original evidence and records as well as those of a separate grand jury investigation into a series of murders of single women in LA at the time. The prime suspect had in fact been identified, but never indicted. Why? And who was he? In an account that partakes both of LA Confidential and Zodiac, for the corruption it exposes and the insight it offers into a serial killer’s mind, Hodel demonstrates that there was a massive police cover-up. Even more shocking, he proves that the murderer, a true-life Jekyll and Hyde who was a highly respected member of society by day and a psychopathic killer by night, was his own father. This edition of the book includes new findings and photographs added after the original publication, together with a new postscript by the author.
