Children’s author Lyon Wentworth races to save his abducted wife, Bea, in this intense small-town thriller.

Every Thursday night, Bea Wentworth follows the same routine. She visits the bookshop, the discount store, and the supermarket, and she’s home by nine o’clock. It’s utterly innocuous, but Bea Wentworth is a state senator, one of the most powerful women in Connecticut, and for that she must be punished. The kidnapper has been tracking her routine for weeks, and soon he’ll make his move.
 
When Bea is abducted, she awakens in a damp, underground dungeon, tied to a table and left to die. It falls to her husband, gentle children’s book author Lyon Wentworth, to save her from a horrible fate. With the help of the local chief of police, Rocco Herbert, Lyon must rescue the woman he loves—and determine which of her many enemies is sick enough to perpetrate this horrible crime.
 
Few authors understand how to balance suspense and emotional realism as well as Richard Forrest does. His Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries are classic, page-turning thrillers, anchored by the genuine emotional bond between the two main characters. In all of mystery fiction, there’s absolutely nothing like them.
 
Death Under the Lilacs is the 6th book in the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

The Digital Age has brought with it a host of marketing and sales tools. When these tools were still new, they were remarkably successful, but today, e-marketing campaigns are no longer generating the cut-through they once enjoyed. Sales teams are struggling with a shrinking number of prospects and have become conditioned to work almost exclusively with late-cycle prospects—those who are ready to buy now. These prospects are savvier than yesterday’s prospects: they have done all their research online, they know the competition, and they know what they should expect to pay. In many cases, they have already decided what product they are going to buy and from whom. They’re merely speaking to suppliers as part of their due diligence. To win these sales, today’s B2B organisations are lowering their prices, which is placing substantial pressure on margins and on the business as a whole. It’s time to change the paradigm. The Ultimate Guide to B2B Sales Prospecting introduces a powerful prospecting strategy that brings person-to-person conversation back where it belongs: at the heart of the sales process. At the same time, it allows companies to explore a huge market that is invisible to the vast majority of today’s B2B sellers: early-cycle buyers. These are the prospects who are living with a problem that you can solve, but who haven’t got round to looking for a solution yet. With a simple and intuitive four-step process, you’ll learn the art of early engagement. You’ll go from a trickling pipeline to a steady flow of qualified prospects, often in as little as a few months. You’ll learn how to define your market, craft your pitch, and how to manage your prospecting team in ways that will produce dependable results. By following the steps outlined in this book, you’ll be guaranteeing sales tomorrow, sales next month, and sales next year.
