Prewett Bielmann GmbH, Jun 10, 2017 - Fiction - 706 pages

British crime fiction where characters become people and place is part of the story.

For lovers of intelligent crime fiction, three more heart-racing European adventures in one boxset.

Beatrice Stubbs of Scotland Yard: detective inspector, metaphor mixer and stubborn survivor.

Battling crime by day and her own demons by night, the question is always the same.

Justice or the law?

"If you've not yet read Beatrice Stubbs, I envy you. What a treat you have in store."

Cold Pressed: "Two things people fear the most? Change and death."

Santorini. Turquoise seas, ancient ruins and beautiful sunsets. And a woman thrown from a cliff. The violent death shocks fellow passengers of the Empress Louise, a grand cruise liner packed with British tourists. DI Beatrice Stubbs flies to Greece to assist. When another lady is killed in her cabin, terror spreads like contagion. Murder is aboard and someone has Beatrice in his sights. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Human Rites: "Judgement is in the eye of the beholder."

Adrian Harvey has a stalker. Someone is stealing his post, vandalising his shop and making allegations to the police. And who is that nun? When DI Beatrice Stubbs is dispatched to Germany to investigate art theft, Adrian seizes the chance to flee the city. Yet the stalker is still on his heels. Adrian runs from danger to the remote island of Sylt. But danger follows and Adrian has run too far.

Bad Apples: "Some people are just rotten to the core."

A police conference in Portugal is hardly a dangerous assignment, so Beatrice Stubbs invites family and friends for a holiday. It should be the perfect work-life balance. Until one of her colleagues is murdered. An eclectic alliance of international detectives forms to find the assassin. But are they really on the same side? Meanwhile, tensions rise at the holiday villa. A clash of egos sours the atmosphere and when a five-year-old child disappears, their idyll turns hellish. Trust can be a fatal mistake.

If you enjoy Alexander McCall Smith, Jacqueline Winspear and David Hewson, you'll love Boxset Two.

Please note the paperback boxset is an omnibus edition, i.e. three novels in one big fat fabulous book
