STORY SOUND l MARCH LEARNING CURVE Catherine Aird
Much-loved Calleshire research chemist Derek Tridgell has been ill for some time. On his deathbed, his incessant, but unintelligible mutterings culminate in a cry of murder. Detective Inspector Sloan and Detective Constable Crosby are brought in to investigate whether these are just the ramblings of a man at death’s door, or a real confession at the final hour. Their enquiries uncover three tragic deaths that may be linked to the deceased’s last words: an accidental drowning at a rival chemist manufacturer; an old friend of Derek’s killed in a caving expedition; his son walking away unscathed from a fatal car accident. It’s a complex case for Sloan and Crosby.

MY DEAR DUCHESS M. C. Beaton
Delightful Regency romance from the author of the Agatha Raisin series; now a major new
drama from Sky 1
Handsome, dashing Henry Wright, the Duke of Westerland, needed a wife in a desperately short period of time. If he could not find a wife, he would lose the legacy he so desperately desired. Young, lovely but sheltered Miss Frederica Sayers needed a husband to save her from the life of shame that almost certainly awaited her when she fled the callous cruelty of her family. Marriage was clearly the answer for both of them – until the duke discovered he had a duchess he could not tame and the duchess found that she would rather lose her spotless reputation than lose him.

DI Falconer and Acting DS Carmichael are summoned from the police headquarters in the nearby town of Market Darley and begin to uncover a web of grudges against the old man. As the heat of July continues relentlessly, tempers flare, disturbing the usual rural calm of the village, and the normally imperturbable Harry Falconer. Faced with a crime with no obvious prime suspect, he feels that he is gradually losing his grip on the case as the body count rises . . .
