The blockbusting, bestselling crime series with more than 250,000 copies sold around the world

This exclusive, limited edition box set includes the first three books in the bestselling Knight & Culverhouse crime thriller series plus exclusive free short stories.


Too Close for Comfort

What if the serial killer you were investigating was someone you knew?


DS Wendy Knight's first murder case was always going to test her limits, but even she couldn't anticipate that a sadistic serial killer might be someone she knows - very well.


As her investigation unfolds, so too does a sinister plot that will turn her world upside down and make it increasingly difficult to distinguish friend from foe in her tightknit world.

By the time Wendy realises she is the killer's final intended victim, she's left fighting against her personal instincts - and for her life.


Guilty as Sin

A missing teenager. A murdered businessman. A huge, earth-shattering secret.


When seventeen-year-old Danielle Levy goes missing one lunchtime, DS Wendy Knight and DCI Jack Culverhouse believe they have a routine case on their hands.


When a prominent local businessman is found dead in his warehouse, however, the case takes a whole new disturbing turn as Knight and Culverhouse begin to unravel the connections between the two cases which lead to a dark and disturbing secret that will make them question everything they thought they knew.


Jack Be Nimble

They know when he will kill again... but not who he will kill


A killer is loose on the streets of Mildenheath, and his barbaric crimes seem a little too familiar...


As the body count begins to rise, DS Wendy Knight and DCI Jack Culverhouse start to realise that the killer is emulating the gruesome, grisly murders of the world's most famous and elusive serial killer: Jack the Ripper.


With Culverhouse struggling to come to terms with his ex-wife's dramatic return after she disappeared eight and a half years earlier and Knight trying to cope with the trauma she’s suffered following devastating events of two previous cases, the race is on to stop the killer before he completes his final kill and retreats back into the darkness.


They know he's going to kill again, but they don't know where or who his next victim will be. And what's worse, they don't know who he is either...
