The Loney
When a flood exposes the remains of a long-dead baby on the Loney – a desolate stretch of Lancastrian coastline raked by treacherous tides – Smith is catapulted back to his youth and an Easter Catholic pilgrimage to a shrine there. His brother Hanny was mute as a child, and his devout parents hoped for a miracle that would enable him to talk. But the mournful, rain-soaked Loney is full of enigmas for the boys: Miracles. Death. Superstition. Hidden rooms. Their sinister accommodation – a taxidermist’s house. The new, younger priest leading the pilgrimage in place of the zealous, ritual-obsessed Father Wilfred, who died in mysterious circumstances. Something terrible is about to happen – something that will stay with Smith forever, no matter how hard he tries to forget . . .
Murder Underground
When Miss Euphemia Pongleton is found murdered on the stairs of Belsize Park station – strangled by her own dog’s leash – her fellow boarders in the Frampton Hotel are not overwhelmed with grief at the death of a tiresome old woman. But they all have their theories about the identity of the murderer, and help to unravel the mystery of who killed the wealthy “Pongle”. Several of her fellow residents – even Tuppy the terrier – have a part to play in the events that lead to a dramatic arrest.
The Girls
Clare and her two pre-teen daughters, Grace and Pip, move into Virginia Terrace, a cluster of flats and houses surrounding a communal garden. It’s a place where families feel safe and children can run free. Neighbours have known each other for years, and trust each other implicitly. But then, after the annual garden party – a glorious summer’s day of getting together and enjoying a barbecue, listening to music, having a few glasses of wine, letting the children play – the unspeakable happens. Grace is found by Pip, unconscious and half undressed, her face a bloody mess. And as a police investigation is launched, the secret games that the residents of Virginia Terrace have been playing for decades are about to be horribly, brutally exposed . . .
