Anthony Horowitz
BBC Radio 2 Book Club Title
Shortlisted for Specsavers National Book Awards
“Thrilling and compelling, with a stunning twist, this is written as if Conan Doyle were at Horowitz's shoulder, and is – in my view – the finest crime novel of the year.” DAILY MAIL
Days after Sherlock Holmes and his
arch-enemy Moriarty fall to their
doom at the Reichenbach Falls,
Pinkerton agent Frederick Chase
arrives in Europe from New York.
The death of Moriarty has created
a poisonous vacuum which has
been swiftly filled by a fiendish new criminal mastermind who has risen to take his place. Ably assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones of Scotland Yard, a devoted student of Holmes's methods of investigation and deduction, Chase must forge a path through the darkest corners of the capital to shine a light on this shadowy figure – a man much feared but seldom seen; a man determined to engulf London in a tide of murder and menace.

The Truth Will Out
“Tense and cop-savvy.”
“My kind of book. Jane Isaac writes with real confidence and attention to detail. An enjoyable and authentic British police procedural.” MARI HANNAH

figure appears in the background
– who then proceeds to attack.
Horrified, Eva calls an ambulance
and flees Hampton, fearing for her
own safety. DCI Helen Lavery leads
the investigation into the murder,
though there are no leads, no further witnesses, and no sign of forced entry. Slowly, the pieces of the puzzle start to come together; but as Helen inches toward solving the case, her past becomes caught up in her present. Someone is after both her and Eva. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want. And as the net starts to close around them, can Helen escape her own demons as well as helping Eva to escape hers?

The Separation
“The tears are still streaming down my face... I have three words to describe the book: Captivating, powerful and passionate.”
“I simply didn't want to put it down. It's vivid, atmospheric and very exciting – you can smell the tropics, feel the drenching heat, hear the birds and the bullfrogs – and the story is so well told.”
Malaya, 1955: Lydia Cartwright

to an empty house. The servants
are gone. The phone is dead. Where is her husband, Alec? Her young daughters, Emma and Fleur?
