    Summary

    Gondal, 1670

    On Midsummer’s Eve, four days before her tenth birthday, Molly Hooper discovered what it meant when someone only looked sad when they thought no-one was watching. She also lost her dog and met the Prince of Elfland, but those turned out to be not nearly as important, in the end.

    Summary

    Lady Smallwood gets to the bottom of what really happened in The Final Problem, with some help from her sister's old teacher.

    A story of clashing worlds, long-buried (or drowned) secrets, and yet more proof that the Animagi Register is as much use as a one-legged man at an arse-kicking contest.

    Summary

    All through the three kingdoms they tell the tale the same. There was once a knight of high lineage and crest-fallen estate, who fathered three daughters on his wife, a lady of surpassing worth, if modest dowry. The eldest daughter was tall and proud, with hair black as a raven’s wing, skin pale as alabaster and lips like rowan-berries. And the second had brown hair soft as a thrush’s back, and she had a voice sweet enough to sing the birds out of the trees. But the third – the youngest – ah, her hair was golden as the phoenix in flight, her eyes were bluer than a kingfisher’s crown and she laughed, played and sang all day long. And those who knew her said that, poor as her fortune was, some day a prince would come riding by, and carry her off to live beside him in his castle and become the mother of kings.

    For every puissant prince must be in want of a wife.

    Summary

    September, 1946. An airman’s body washed up on a beach brings Lord Peter and Harriet to Barlock, Somerset. To Lord Peter, the dead pilot represents unfinished business. He is the latest in a series of deaths linked to “X”, a shadowy figure who uses his connections within Bridstow’s close-knit homosexual community to extort military intelligence from vulnerable men in high-level roles. A chance encounter with an old college acquaintance hands Harriet a loose end which may have the power to unravel all X’s intrigues.

    Summary

    The old cops always tell the cadets, 'There's always going to be one or two cases that strike harder than the others, for whatever reason -- what place you're in when they crop up, what the outcome is, something about the people involved. Watch those. If you aren't careful, they're the ones that will take over your life.'

    For forty years, Toronto cop Sean has been obsessed with the Jennifer Lowell case. She and two friends vanished on a trip to Europe in the late 1970s, when five friends flew out to England on less than two days notice and only two returned. Sean's suspicion has always rested on Dave Martyniuk, one of the two returnees. But he has never had enough evidence to make a charge stick, and each year that passes has increased Maryniuk's power and influence, so he is now virtually untouchable.

    Three months into Sean's retirement, chance brings a young student to his home, who he realises holds the key to getting inside Martyniuk's citadel at last.
