Abstract
When Thomas Pitt is tasked with playing bodyguard to Sofia Delacruz, a young and controversial British preacher who has been living in Spain and has returned to England on a mysterious errand, he thinks it's a waste of Special Branch's time and resources. But when kidnappers manage to reach Sofia murdering two of her companions in the process. Pitt learns that the message the lovely evangelist was meant to deliver was far more urgent than he knew. With his career on the line, he races to unravel the truth behind Sofia's disappearance, enlisting the help of his beloved wife Charlotte and his old friend Victor Narraway. And he soon realizes that if he cannot find Sofia before it's too late, the consequences could destroy not only his reputation, but the British empire itself.

Abstract
A dead body in the prayer hall of a mosque isn't the best start to the day for anyone. But for Detective Inspector Harold Porter it's all in a day's work. The problem is that DI Porter has been given a new partner -- a young Muslim detective by the name of Mohammed Salim Nasri. Nasri and Porter are both British and both cops, but they look at the world - and the case - from completely different viewpoints. And when that case includes Islamic terrorists and knife-wielding fanatics that can only mean problems. As Porter and Nasri work to solve the case, MI5 is watching over their shoulders and one wrong move could mean a major terrorist incident.

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.

Abstract
September 1940. The sun is shining, and in the midst of the good weather Londoners could be mistaken for forgetting their country was at war -- until the familiar wail of the air-raid sirens heralds an enemy attack. The Blitz has started, and normal life has abruptly ended - but crime has not. That night a man's body is discovered in an unmarked van in the back streets of West Ham. When Detective Inspector John Jago is called to the scene, he recognises the victim: local Justice of the Peace, Charles Villiers. The death looks suspicious, but then a German bomb obliterates all evidence. War or no war, murder is still murder, and it's Jago's job to find the truth.

Abstract
September 1940. As the Blitz takes its nightly toll on London and Hitler prepares his invasion fleet just across the Channel in occupied France, Britain is full of talk about enemy agents. Suspicion is at an all time high and no one is sure who can be trusted. In Canning Town, rescue workers are unsettled when they return to a damaged street and discover a body that shouldn?t be there. When closer examination of the corpse reveals death by strangling, Detective Inspector John Jago is called upon to investigate. But few seem to really care about the woman?s death -- not even her family. As Jago digs deeper he starts to uncover a trail of deception, betrayal, and romantic entanglements?

It's 1996. Detective Sergeant Tom Thorne is a haunted man.

So when seven-year-old Kieron Coyne goes missing while playing in the woods with his best friend, Thorne vows he will not make the same mistake again. Cannot. The solitary witness. The strange neighbour. The friendly teacher. All are in Thorne's sights. This case will be the making of him...or the breaking.

Abstract
"Scotland Yard detectives Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James are drawn into separate investigations that hold disturbing -- and deadly -- complications for their own lives. On a beautiful morning in mid-May, the body of a young woman is found in one of Notting Hill's private gardens. To passersby, the pretty girl in the white dress looks as if she's sleeping. But Reagan Keating has been murdered, and the lead detective, DI Kerry Boatman, turns to Gemma James for help. She and Gemma worked together on a previous investigation, and Gemma has a personal connection to the case: Reagan was the nanny of a child who attends the same dance studio as Toby, Gemma and Kincaid's son. Gemma soon discovers that Reagan's death is the second tragedy in this exclusive London park; a few months before, another victim died in an accident. And when still another of the garden residents meets a violent end, it becomes clear that there are sinister forces at play. Boatman and Gemma must stop the killer as Gemma realizes she holds a child's fate in her hands.
