After last week’s romantic reads on Crooked Cat Books, this week sees us descend into the murky depths of crime. We’re off to Northern Ireland, England and Spain!
Discover A Limited Justice, #1 in the bestselling police procedural series by Catriona King; The Filey Connection, the first instalment in the hugely popular Sanford Third Age Club series by David W. Robinson; and Leon Cazador, the clever private eye in Nik Morton‘s intriguing collection of “little gems”, Spanish Eye.
First up there’s A Limited Justice by Catriona King, the first in the Belfast-based series featuring DCI Marc Craig. It’s been hailed as the start of “a great new thriller series”.
When a body is discovered at a petrol station, Belfast D.C.I. Marc Craig is called to investigate. Within a day, a second body is found. Then a third. This time, it’s personal.
It’s someone he knows.
With time against him, Craig desperately tries to piece the case together, but will he find the suspect before anyone else is killed?
A Limited Justice is the first in a crime series set in 21st century Belfast, Northern Ireland, featuring Detective Chief Inspector Marc Craig.
Head to the English seaside in David W. Robinson‘s “most enjoyable” cosy crime case, The Filey Connection. The first in the popular Sanford Third Age Club series, it introduces you to the characters of Joe, Sheila and Brenda, the regular sleuths.
Was Nicola Leach’s death an accident or deliberate? Did Eddie Dobson fall into the sea or did he jump? What’s going on behind the innocent façade – and closed doors – of the Beachside Hotel? And who raided Joe’s room?
Joe and his sidekicks must find the answers to solve the mystery of The Filey Connection.
And we’re off to sunny Spain (who wouldn’t, given the unseasonably cool temperatures here) in Nik Morton‘s adventurous Spanish Eye. Meet the unflappable private detective, Leon Cazador. Cool, calm and collected, he solves mysteries, murders and international crime with panache. This selection of gripping short stories, ranging from humorous to serious, is the perfect summer read!
This collection covers twenty two cases, some insightful, some humorous, and some tragic. The tales evoke tears and laughter, pleasure at the downfall of criminals, and anger at arrogant evil-doers.
Sometimes, Cazador operates in disguise under several aliases, among them Carlos Ortiz Santos, a modern day Simon Templar; he is wholly against the ungodly and tries to hold back the encroaching night of unreason. Cazador translated into English means hunter. In his adventurous life he has witnessed many travesties of justice; he is a man driven to hunt down felons of all kinds, to redress the balance of good against evil.
Leon Cazador fights injustice in all its forms and often metes out his own rough justice. It’s what he does.
Enjoy the reads! Just make sure you keep the lights on…
