Giles Barrington must decide if he
should withdraw from politics and
try to rescue Karin, the woman he

But is Karin truly in love with him,
or is she a spy? Meanwhile, Lady
Virginia is facing bankruptcy, and
can see no way out of her financial
problems – until she is introduced
to the hapless Cyrus T. Grant III...
Sebastian Clifton is now chief
executive of Farthings Bank, and
a workaholic; his personal life is
thrown into disarray when he falls
for Priya, a beautiful Indian girl. But
her parents have already chosen the
man she is going to marry... And
Sebastian's rivals, Adrian Sloane
and Desmond Mellor, are still plotting against him and his chairman, Hakim Bishara, so they can take over Farthings...
The sixth and penultimate book in the Clifton Chronicles
“Archer knows how to dole out tiny crumbs of suspense right up to the last page, which ends with a really excellent cliffhanger.”

The Apple Of Her Eye
February, 1945: April Green and
her cousin Heather are wondering
if the war will ever end. Then the
local pub in Chiswick takes a direct
hit, and April's father is killed in
the blast. Volunteering to tend his
allotment, she discovers a passion
for growing vegetables. Meanwhile,
Winnie Benson is coming to terms
with her husband's spinal injuries.
He may never walk again, and until
their son George returns from the
merchant navy, Winnie must run
their greengrocer's on her own.
Once the war is over and George
is home, things start to improve,
but rationing remains in force and
vegetables are hard to find – so
April's supply of home-grown produce couldn't be more welcome. And before long, George can't help wishing he was the apple of her eye...

DS Jimmy Suttle is called to the scene
of a brutal murder in the picturesque
Devon village of Lympstone. Harriet
Reilly, a local GP, has been found
disembowelled in the bedroom of
her partner, climate scientist Alois

local GP offering mercy killings to
patients meeting certain criteria.
The name of the GP is Harriet Reilly.
So begin two investigations of the
same crime: Operation Buzzard,
with DS Suttle at its heart; and
Lizzie, piecing together her own

The Bones Of You
When eighteen-year-old Rosie Anderson disappears, the idyllic village where she lived will never be the same again. Local gardener Kate had come to know Rosie well, and thought she understood her – perhaps even better than Rosie's own mother. Rosie was beautiful, kind and gentle. She came from a loving family, and she had her whole life ahead of her. Who could possibly want to harm her? And why? Kate is convinced the police are missing something, and that someone in the village knows more than they're letting on. As the investigation deepens, so does her obsession with solving the mystery of what happened to Rosie.
