Death in an Evil Place is a mystery story concerning an unusual murder solved by an unlikely detective. When Ken Hardy’s friend is charged with murder, he scents an injustice and sets about discovering the truth. His gruelling task involves a personal battle against the paranormal dimension surrounding the case. Rural Lancashire, November 1992. Ken Hardy, a steady, practical businessman nearing retirement, makes an unscheduled call at Fellbeck, a remote farmhouse, and walks into an unsettling experience. Who is the farmer, why is he living in the past and what is the air of menace about the place? Six years later, actress Caroline Enderby is brutally murdered at the same house. Ken’s friend Chris is charged with the murder of his lover but Ken is convinced that he has been framed and undertakes to establish the truth. With a guilty verdict looming, Ken engineers a breakthrough exposing the conspirators and their evil motive driven by spiritualist delusions. With forensic evidence pending, a dramatic turn of events at Fellbeck changes everything... Death in an Evil Place’s unconventional plot and paranormal elements make for a unique, gripping read, miles away from traditional police/detective murder fiction. It will appeal to fans of crime and thriller novels.

A red gash of a mouth rimmed with impossibly tiny, razor-sharp teeth yawned wide, then swift as a snake, she bent and struck.. For Sandra, daughter of illusionists, Adam and Ophelia, life’s never been run of the mill! But when Adam’s wandering eye lights on yet another conquest, it proves a chorus girl too far, and Sandra’s caught in the reverberations of her parents acrimonious parting. Coerced into restoring her depressed Mother to the bosom of a family Sandra never knew existed, she’s sucked into a situation that even for her is unnerving. From being without a single relative, she suddenly acquires several she’d rather do without, and learns a few home truths she’d prefer not to know. Ophelia, it appears, has not been entirely honest about any number of things. There’s no doubt in Sandra’s mind, the sooner she puts as much distance as possible between herself, her newly discovered nearest and dearest, their peculiar tendencies and their failing hotel business, the happier she’s going to be. Dire straits call for desperate measures and Sandra reluctantly rises to the occasion. A hanged housemaid, a fly-on-the-wall documentary, The Psychic Society and a quasi co-operative journalist all handled correctly should, she reckons, get the family business up and running, which will allow her to do the same – as fast as she can, and in the opposite direction. Things unfortunately move swiftly from bad to farce and then get a hell of a lot darker. One moment Sandra’s struggling to save the family’s income, the next, she’s battling to save their lives. Turns out, some darknesses, once buried, are best left undisturbed

DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND
 
My name is Kvothe.
 
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
 
You may have heard of me.
 
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
