Sea, Sun, Cads and Scallywags (Trengillion Cornish Mystery Series Book 3)
Daphne Neville - 2014
The Swinging Sixties are at their height and Trengillion in Cornwall is much changed since the early 1950s. Charles, the last of Trengillion’s prominent family, has died, and Penwynton House, his prestigious former home, is up for sale, causing much consternation amongst villagers as to the future of the rambling, neglected building. Deep inside Bluebell Woods, the children of the village, wrapped in a world of pop stars, music and fashion, spend much of the school holidays playing in and around their makeshift den. And at The Ringing Bells Inn, Landlord Frank Newton and his wife, Dorothy, concede it is time to think of retirement. Meanwhile, visitors come and go and life goes on as normal. Or does it? The strange behaviour of some visitors raise many questions. The death of a quiet, unassuming holidaymaker in a subsequent supposed accident causes much gossip, and the evolving summer turns out to be anything but normal. Sea, Sun, Cads and Scallywags is the third in a series of seven books located in Trengillion on Cornwall’s beautiful Lizard Peninsula.

The Sarah Roberts Series Vol. 10-12
Jonas Saul - 2014
When she arrives, Barry Ashford, the RCMP officer Sarah is supposed to irritate, has just saved a woman from a suicide attempt. To the media and the public, Barry Ashford is a hero. To Sarah, he is breaking the law and getting away with it because he's a member of the street gang in blue. Since Vivian hasn't revealed exactly what Barry is up to, Sarah doesn't have much to go on. The message was simple: Antagonize RCMP Officer Barry Ashford until he confesses his crimes to her. Sarah's efforts to goad him don't work. Eventually, the entire Kelowna RCMP detachment is looking for Sarah on harassment charges. She can't afford to be arrested and she can't afford to fail Vivian. With her options running out, she abducts Barry, ties him up in the basement of her rented home, and interrogates him. Vivian leaves Sarah another message that Barry is only the barnacle on the Mother Ship. She needs to look deeper for a darker truth, one much larger than Barry. When Sarah comes face to face with that truth, she discovers an evil too large to handle on her own. One that will kill her unless Vivian intervenes. The Redeemed (Sarah Roberts Book Eleven) Four Catholic priests have been murdered in Los Angeles, each killed in a different way. Each priest's name is carved into a small crucifix found with the body. Someone with a deep-rooted hatred of Catholicism is targeting priests with a suspected history of deviant behavior. The lead detective, David Hirst, calls on his friend Parkman for help and asks if he could bring Sarah Roberts along. Since Sarah is on a quest to redeem herself with her colleague Parkman after she had let him down in the past, she agrees to go to L.A. and do whatever she can to aid in the investigation. When they arrive, they head straight to the crime scene of yet another dead priest. With Sarah's history of antagonizing cops, and a recent feature in newspapers around North America regarding the death of a Canadian officer, the LAPD don't want her help. Within days, Hirst regrets his decision and asks Sarah and Parkman to leave. But the killer has other plans. According to the Bible, since Sarah is an automatic writer and talks to her dead sister, she is a practitioner of witchcraft and she works for the devil. Therefore she has to die, too. Before she has a chance to leave L.A., the priest killer has carved her name into a small crucifix. What he has in store for her is reminiscent of Eve in the Garden of Eden, a snake and a very painful way to die. The Haunted (Sarah Roberts Book Twelve) Two decades ago, Sarah's sister Vivian was murdered. Vivian's consciousness has manifested itself in Sarah Roberts through Automatic Writing, but is now merging into Sarah's mind at a new level, and Sarah must relive Vivian's brutal death almost daily. Sarah moves into a cabin in northern California to be alone, to work things out. She visits a local psychologist to deal with what's happening to her, and researches the name Cole Lincoln, her old babysitter. Lincoln was a police officer who lived next door to her. He abused her and threatened her life if she ever spoke of it. But he seems to have disappeared. Members of the police force where he used to work won't even acknowledge his name. But Lincoln is alive and well. Since Sarah's name hit the national media with a cop killing in Canada and the priest killer case in Los Angeles, Cole has followed her exploits, watched her, and has waited for the day she would come after him. That day has come.
