Explanation of the Book:

ABSOLUTION BY MURDER is the brilliant and evocative first novel in Peter Tremayne's Sister Fidelma series, bringing 7th-century Ireland vividly to life. PRAISE FOR ABSOLUTION BY MURDER: 'In the simultaneously sharp-tongued and full womanly figure of Sister Fidelma, Tremayne has created a heroine whom many readers will willingly follow. Even Brother Cadfael might have tolerated her' Kirkus Reviews As the leading churchmen and women gather at the Synod of Whitby in 664AD to debate the rival merits of the Celtic and Roman Churches, tempers begin to fray. Conspirators plot an assassination, while mysterious, violent death stalks the shadowy cloisters of the Abbey of St Hilda. When the Abbess Etain, a leading speaker for the Celtic Church, is found murdered suspicion inevitably rests on the Roman faction. Attending the Synod is Fidelma, of the community of St Brigid of Kildare. As an advocate of the Brehon Court, she is called on to investigate the murder with Brother Eadulf, of the Roman faction. However, the two are so unlike that their partnership is described as that of a wolf and a fox - but which is which? More gruesome deaths follow and the friction among the clerics could end in civil war. Can the solution to the mysteries avert such a conflict? What readers are saying about ABSOLUTION OF MURDER: 'Superb storytelling from a usually neglected era. Read this and you will certainly want to read the rest of this excellent series' 'I was transported back in time; Peter Tremayne brought the location and characters to life' 'The story moves forward with Fidelma weaving her way through to the end with skill and intelligence. Well worth reading'

Explanation of the Book:

The new novel from the internationally bestselling, prizewinning, queen of Icelandic crime. All he wants is for them to say sorry. The police find out about the crime the way everyone does: on Snapchat. The video shows the terrified victim begging for forgiveness. When her body is found, it is marked with a number 2... Detective Huldar joins the investigation, bringing child psychologist Freyja on board to help question the murdered teenager's friends. Soon, they uncover that Stella was far from the angel people claim - but even so, who could have hated her enough to kill? Then another teenager goes missing, and more clips are sent. Freyja and Huldar can agree on two things at least: the truth is far from simple. And the killer is not done yet. A brilliantly suspenseful story about the dark side of social media, The Absolution will make you wonder what you should have said sorry for... Praise for Yrsa Sigurdardottir 'Iceland's outstanding crime novelist' Daily Express 'A magnificent writer' Karin Slaughter 'The undisputed queen of Icelandic Noir' Simon Kernick 'Believe all the hype - this is crime at its best.'

Explanation of the Book:

In this stunning literary debut, Patrick Flanery delivers a devastating and intimate portrait of post-apartheid South Africa, and the perils of taking sides when the sides are changing around you. Told in shifting perspectives, Absolution is centred on the mysterious character of Clare Wald, a controversial writer of great fame, haunted by the memories of a sister she fears she betrayed to her death and a daughter she fears she abandoned. Clare comes to learn that in this conflict the dead do not stay buried, and the missing return in other forms--such as the small child present in her daughter's last days who has reappeared, posing as Clare's official biographer. Sam Leroux, a South African expatriate returning to Cape Town after many years in New York, gradually earns Clare's trust, his own ghosts emerging from the histories that he and Clare begin to unravel, leading them both along a path in search of reconciliation and forgiveness.

To protect her Anna Leigh has to get to Delroi. The last thing she expects is being claimed by the dangerous, sexy Xan Bana. His telepathy is as strong as hers, his mind is fascinating, and he has moves in the bedroom she’d never been aware she missing. But he’s an enigmatic warrior and she’s not convinced his motives are pure. Xan Bana never expected to find a mate or take over leadership of his clan. Both are a challenge he’s looking forward to.

But when they arrive on Delroi, they help Zola all they can but when a ghost from the past almost kills her, his primitive dominant instincts threaten the fragile bond he’s forging with his mate. Now he’s in a race against time to keep his mate, protect her daughter, and save the son she’d thought lost long ago.

Explanation of the Book:

When Alan Kirkland went in search of a mysterious uncle, a James Kirkland, a man he never knew, a man disowned by his own family for some unknown reason, what he finally unearthed made him wish he had left the mystery buried. The story unfolds in the present but the roots of it lay buried somewhere back in the time of The Great War. By researching old police reports and newspaper articles, Alan discovered that not only was his uncle an army deserter, but he also stood accused of murdering two young women, one of those women being the wife of Major Ethan Kightingale, a prominent member of society. But James Kirkland somehow avoided arrest and was never put on trial, consequently his version of events went with him to his grave. Undeterred, refusing to surrender his search, it finally paid off for Alan Kirkland. He found that one remaining link to the past was still alive. Old and feeble, Cecilia Knightingale, a central player in the longago drama, held the key to the puzzle. But her family had its own dark past to shelter, and she would shelter it until the end.
