Post Mortem by Gary Bell
The second novel by Gary Bell in his Elliot Rook QC series. It’s pacey, exciting and fun. And it has a very unexpected ending. Well worth reading.

A wartime espionage thriller featuring Professor Tom Wilde. It’s Book 5 in the series and, like all the others, a rattling good read. Tension, trickery and treachery!

Trust by Chris Hammer
We love Chris Hammer’s novels and this is Book 3 in his Martin Scarsden series. It’s a story you won’t want to put down and it has a seriously unexpected ending.
