Andrew and Ashley Mysteries: the Shattered Window

When someone throws a rock through an elementary school’s window, two seemingly ordinary kids decide to find out who. Joined together, they have to race against the clock, with very little evidence to go on and almost no leads. For Andrew Reynolds and Ashley Simmons, the Case of the Shattered Window will be difficult to solve but not impossible. As the first book in the series, this children’s mystery novel is sure not to disappoint and will keep you waiting for the next one.

The Ripper’s Grip

At the close of the 19th century, in the fog laden streets of London, fear has gripped the populace. A fiend lurks, killing unfortunate women by night, while by day the lurid headlines of Fleet Street’s papers seem only to feed the frenzy. Albion Roddles, an adventurer and keen amateur sleuth, takes it upon himself to capture the so-called ‘Ripper’ in an attempt to realign the nation’s papers to more newsworthy stories, such as his own extraordinary exploits. This first story of ‘The Positively True Adventures of Albion Roddles, Cave-Gentleman of Renown’, sets the scene for many tales of remarkable derring-do to come. Here we meet Albion Roddles and uncover not only the dark secrets that linger at the heart of the nation’s capital, but those that drive our hero himself!

The Philosophical Detective

Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1967. The blind poet Jorge Luis Borges, visiting at Harvard, faces a crisis of conscience and identity as he and his young assistant Nick Martin grapple with an extraordinary series of crimes and the equally baffling conundrums of literature and philosophy. Forty-five years later, struggling with pain and grief, Nick Martin looks back with wonder at that magical time and asks himself: Did he ever find out who Borges really was? Lighthearted but deeply serious, The Philosophical Detective is a unique journey into the visionary world of a genius. “…a suspenseful, pitch-perfect novel with an unlikely lead detective: a fictionalized version of iconic Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges… An intelligent, original detective novel.”- Kirkus Reviews.

A mysterious man thought to be dead, a deceiving doctor and a notorious gangster are all connected, but the big question is who killed Louise and why? Plus, three small town sheriff’s deputies are made a tempting offer by a sinister stranger they’ve arrested; a young prostitute tracks down the man who murdered her friend and exacts brutal revenge; in the near future where reproduction is regulated a desperate mother will risk everything to have a child of her own and in Victorian London a married couple encounter one of the city’s most infamous criminals and find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
