You Sense Him Some refer to it as the Colony. To others, it's a cult. But few locals in the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay have ever been invited to the inner sanctum of Siren Song. Even the sisters who live here, far from strangers who might recoil at their unnerving psychic abilities, don't know all the terrors buried within its walls. . . You Fear Him Eight months into a surrogate pregnancy for her sister, Kristina, Detective Savannah Dunbar just wants to wrap up paperwork before taking medical leave. But her department's investigation into a brutal double homicide has suddenly become much more complex--and personal. And now there are disturbing rumors about the Colony, its matriarch, and a long history of bitter secrets. . . But You Can Never Stop Him Death has come to Siren Song before. But this time there will be no refuge and no remorse. For everything born in wickedness must die that way--and a killer will not rest until he has claimed them all. . . Praise for Wicked Lies "Definitely one you don't want to read alone at night." –Library Journal

Melissa’s most recent troubles stem from a secret: her 28-year-old boyfriend Michael has just broken up with her. Though the relationship is clearly over, Melissa clings to the memories, riding a relentless wave of hope and disappointment. Meaningless sexual escapades, drunken nights, and drug-induced blackouts help her cope with heartbreak, but her pain goes much deeper than unrequited teenage love. Her insight, sense of humour, optimism, and sheer determination prove to be saving graces, as is her ability to find solace in the Greek myths she’s learned about in grade ten English class. And in the end, it is Melissa’s mother who proves to be the real victim of tragedy, and Melissa who must save her.

Everyone--including mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance--loves Arsenic and Old Lace. But something wicked is poisoned a local summer stock production as cast members stab each other in the back and props are sabotaged. Worst of all, the star, aging Hollywood beach-blanket hunk Shane Petree, butchers his lines--while getting top billing in bed with wives and teenage daughters around town. No wonder somebody wants to draw his final curtain. With a little help from Miss Marple, Poirot, and Agatha the Bookstore Cat, a pompous prosecutor tries to pin a murder on Max, Annie's own leading man. Unless Annie can prove her darling's innocence, their wedding date's off! Invoking the tried-and-true methods of her favorite literary sleuths, Annie snoops around the greasepaint and glitter of the show-stopper scene if she doesn't watch it, because theatrical murderers never play fair.

Falling passionately in love with a mysterious, sinfully sexy man can lead to Something Wicked Investigative reporter Regan Cluny is in hot pursuit of a reclusive philanthropist who is financing a mysterious archaeological dig in the California desert. Attempting to convince Charles Cunningham Nash to grant her an interview has proven impossible long distance, so Regan sets off uninvited for his dig to woo him in person.

Miraculously, Regan survives with only one strange memory of her attack...and the man who comes to her aid is Nash himself. Strongly attracted to her handsome protector, Regan can't know that Nash is a vampire tied to her attackers by a vicious blood feud that dates back to the Civil War - or that he has hungered for the life and soul of a mortal for nearly two centuries. With the local sheriff determined to nail Nash for the violence perpetrated by his dire enemy, Regan must decide whether the dark secrets of a lover she can't live without are something wonderful...or something wicked.

Lord Edward Corinth's fiancé, Verity Browne, returns from Prague with suspected tuberculosis. The only cure for TB in 1938 is rest and a healthy diet so she goes to a private clinic in Henley-on- Thames run by a Cambridge friend of Edward's. Meanwhile, Edward investigates a series of murders with a Henley connection. His dentist, Eric Silver, has been murdered - shortly after sharing with Edward, his final patient, his suspicions about the deaths of three of his elderly patients. Silver had identified an entomological connection between the deaths. General Lowther had had a heart attack drinking a wine called Clos des Mouches, Hermione Totteridge, a well-known gardener, had been poisoned by the new insecticide with which she had been experimenting, and James Herold had been stung to death by his bees. Edward goes to stay with his old friend Harry Makin inherited a title and a property in Henley. His investigation comes to a thrilling climax during what many believe will be the last Henley Royal Regatta before a new European war. Both Edward and Verity face death from someone, or something, wicked. Praise for David Roberts 'A classic murder mystery with as complex a plot as one could hope for and a most engaging pair of amateur sleuths.' (Sweet Poison) Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie 'This is a witty and meticulous recreation of the class- ridden middle England of the 1930s... a perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away.' (Bones of the Buried) Guardian 'The plot is both intricate and enthralling, like Poirot on the high seas, and lovingly recorded by an author with a meticulous eye and a huge sense of fun.' Michael Dobbs.
