Good Morning, All!

Hope you each had a wonderful day yesterday, either celebrating Thanksgiving with your friends and families, or simply celebrating a beautiful Thursday in November! There is ALWAYS something to celebrate!

Today, I’ll be running around like a crazy person, getting ready for my trip to Charleston tomorrow. My daughter & family have just bought a new home, and moved in a week ago today, and I’m planning to do my Granny thing, keeping two-year old Kaelen busy while his parents continue the huge job of  unpacking and setting up house. It’s 5+ hour drive from here, but my payoff is this:

Definitely worth the drive, wouldn’t you say? 🙂

I’ll be back Wednesday afternoon, so play amongst yourselves until then. I will have my tablet and, of course, my iPhone, with me, and I’ll do my best to check in with you guys each night. But I…

An Unlamented Death

When Dr. Adam Bascom trips over a body in Gressington churchyard, he never imagines it will change the whole direction of his life. As a recently-qualified physician trying to establish a practice in a small market town in north Norfolk, Adam should be devoting all his energy to his business. But it soon becomes clear that the authorities are intent on making sure the death is accepted as an accident and refuse any deeper investigation. Adam’s curiosity and sense of justice cannot accept this. He knows there are many unanswered questions about the death, but he has no standing that would allow him to become involved formally. Instead, he uses friends, old and new, unexpected contacts and even his own mother to help him get to the truth. Set against the…

After everything, there is peace. The Collective took London away from the gangs that terrorised the city after the plague and the slow terror of the Breakdown. The blood on the streets has dried. There is food, water and good housing. Everyone has work. But the meek have not inherited the earth. On a bitterly cold night a woman is brutalised and murdered, shattering the fragile calm of the city. The investigation of London’s first murder in two years falls to Inspector Timothy Conlan and the District team of the New Metropolitan Police. Tim ‘Con’ Conlan serenely navigates the harsh new London. He is dedicated, conscientious and smiling. Around him society is broken. People are traumatised, fearful and wracked with guilt.

Crime DOES pay – especially crime that has the support of our legal system.

Carson’s investigative work for Attorney Jack Logan runs smack into the path of the largest law firm in West Tennessee. Trying to stay out of their path only succeeds in putting Carson in the crosshairs of lawyers who want him out of the way.

Power struggles, infidelity, organized crime and eventually murder all appear to be somehow linked to this powerful law firm – McCabe, McCabe, Clark and Lewis.

This is a story of the small versus the large in a little West Tennessee community that has no idea of the crime and corruption that lay underneath their quiet daily lives.
