Abstract
Madeline Kramer has finally got her life back on track at top City law firm. But when two armed, masked men burst into a conference room one lunchtime, kidnapping a trainee and a partner, Maddy's life is plunged into disarray once more --particularly when charismatic DCI Jake Carver, who caught a heartless killer when they last met and with whom Maddy shared a mutual chemistry, is called to the scene. Things become more complicated when a disturbing video reveals two more trainees have been taken. What initially appears as a random kidnapping for mercenary gain soon evolves into something far more complex, the horrifying events of 30 years ago motivating the abductors and having colossal implications?

Abstract
Have you ever wondered how the ideas for some things come about? Surprisingly it is often as much down to chance as a single person's brilliance. The Accidental Scientist explores the role of chance and error in scientific, medical and commercial innovation, outlining exactly how some of the most well-known products, gadgets and useful gizmos came to be. Encompassing everything from DNA profiling to fingerprinting and TNT to the telephone, this book explores many of the discoveries that we are all so familiar with today, yet have the most interesting origins because of the story behind them. Not all discoveries require brilliance, and as The Accidental Scientist demonstrates, sometimes a special ingredient is needed: luck.

Abstract
Bruce Attleton dazzled London's literary scene with his first two novels but his early promise did not bear fruit. His wife Sybilla is a glittering actress, unforgiving of Bruce's failure, and the couple lead separate lives in their house at Regent's Park. When Bruce is called away on a sudden trip to Paris, he vanishes completely until his suitcase and passport are found in a sinister artist's studio, the Belfry, in a crumbling house in Notting Hill, and Inspector Macdonald must uncover Bruce's secrets. This intricate mystery from a classic writer is set in a superbly evoked London of the 1930s.

Abstract
December, 1916. Inspector Sam Blackstone is suspicious when he is called to the office of Superintendent Brigham - the new head of special branch. A German traitor wants 25,000 in exchange for intelligence on U-boat locations, and "Max" has specifically asked for Blackstone to be the one to deliver the money - alone. Blackstone, and his sergeant, Archie Patterson, are certain there's more to it, but Blackstone can't turn down the job. But that is little comfort when, as suspected, it all goes wrong, and Blackstone finds himself on the run from his own colleagues, with Patterson languishing in a cell. A chance meeting with a Russian former colleague seems to provide a lifeline, but his help comes at a cost.

Cambridge, 1392. Matthew Bartholomew is called to examine some mysterious bones found in the King's Ditch. The next day he is called to the Ditch again: a student has been found dead there. Meanwhile, there is unrest in the town, and the strange disappearance of Dominica, former lover of the dead student and daughter of Waterstone, the well-known Principal of a Cambridge student hostel. Then a skeletal hand is found in the Ditch, hailed by townsfolk as the final remains of local martyr Simon d'Ambrey. When Bartholomew finds that the hand is wearing a ring apparently identical to a pair that were worn by Dominica and her ex-lover, and now missing, he knows that his investigative skills are called for.

A fork of lightning and a crash of thunder herald the completion of a heinous crime. In woodland belonging to the eccentric Lord Wychbold, a body has been crucified on a tree. On Easter Day, the Reverend Tobias Campion returns from morning service at St Luke's and discovers the corpse, already beginning to putrefy. A crown of thorns frames his face, bludgeoned beyond recognition, and a loincloth preserves what is left of his modesty. The victim will not rise again; though the well-concealed secrets of the village will have to, if the perpetrators are to be found. After a post-mortem examination fails to identify the victim, Tobias and his old friend, Dr. Hansard, pledge to uncover the truth.
