Scorpions’ Nest
July, 1586. Sir Francis Walsingham has despatched Kit Marlowe to the English College, the school for exiled priests in Rheims, where he suspects the Catholic traitor Matthew Baxter is hiding, the only one of the Babington plotters to have escaped the spymaster’s net. Infiltrating the college undercover, Marlowe learns that the community has been rocked by a series of unexplained and violent deaths. A scholar has fallen from a window under mysterious circumstances; the popular Father Laurenticus has been discovered dead in his bed, his throat slit from ear to ear. With the help of master codebreaker Thomas Phelippes, can Christopher Marlowe unearth a murderer, track down a traitor and extract himself from the scorpions’ nest without being fatally stung?

Maxwell’s House
The derelict house on the edge of the sleepy seaside town was a haven for courting couples, down-and-outs – and someone with altogether more sinister intentions. It was there that they found the corpse of 17-year-old Jenny Hyde. She’d been strangled. Peter “Mad Max” Maxwell didn’t have to become involved at all. But one of his pupils had been murdered and Maxwell took it personally. However, his efforts to discover the truth about Jenny’s death land the genial Head of Sixth in deeper trouble than he could ever have thought possible.

Maxwell’s Grave
When Peter “Mad Max” Maxwell takes his kids from Leighford High on an archaeological dig, they uncover a grave. But the corpse was not Saxon and it wasn’t a king, this was an altogether more recent death. Then a policeman on the case is found dead at the wheel of his car. What knowledge did he possess that led to his death? And does his colleague, Maxwell’s partner Jacquie Carpenter, unwittingly have the same information? Maxwell locks horns with the great and not so good in a vicious world of skulduggery, academic back-biting and religious mania which can only end in murder.

It is the late 1850s and a tired woman holding a baby walks from Hull to one of the big houses in Anlaby – the home of the wealthy Rayners. She knocks at the door, and shoves the baby at young James Rayner. The father was “young Mr Rayner”, and the mother is dead. Then she vanishes. The respectable shipping family of Hull are shattered. No one wants to take responsibility for the baby and it is about to be put into an orphanage when Sammi, James’s cousin, decides to take the baby back to her parents’ home on the Holderness coast. James is banished to London, and disaster begins to beset the three branches of the Rayners.
