The Pact

By Roberta Kray

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Reissue of Roberta Kray's second gritty gangland novel, along with The Debt and The Lost

or 34-year-old Eve Weston, life couldn't get much bleaker. Her con artist father recently committed suicide and her younger brother Terry was sent to jail. Then she lost her job too, because a close friendship with married solicitor Henry Baxter was misconstrued as an affair. Having temporarily moved away from London, she's now living in her father's old flat in one of the shabbier parts of Norwich.

On a visit to see Terry, Eve is shocked to find him battered and bruised. He refuses to tell her who has done it or why. Eve begins to have serious fears that her brother won't survive his sentence, and in desperation she turns to another prisoner, a dangerous-seeming individual called Martin Cavelli. They make a secret pact: if Cavelli protects Terry then she will pay whatever it costs.

Private investigator Harry Lind doesn't believe in ghosts and so doesn't think twice about the ramblings of a drunken old hack. Little Grace Harper went missing over twenty years ago and missing girls can't just reappear - or can they? It takes a brutal murder to make him think again. Reporter Jess Vaughan is convinced Grace is still alive, and as she and Harry begin to unravel an age-old web of deceit and betrayal their discoveries put them on a collision course with Jimmy Keppell, one of London's most notorious gangsters. It seems Jess and Harry's search for the truth could cost them their lives.

Sergeant Hamish Macbeth - Scotland's most quick-witted but unambitious policeman - returns in M.C. Beaton's new mystery in her New York Times bestselling series.Nobody loves an honest man, or that was what police sergeant Hamish Macbeth tried to tell newcomer Paul English. Paul attended church in Lochdubh. He told the minister, Mr. Wellington, that his sermons were boring. He told tweedy Mrs. Wellington that she was too fat. Angela Brody was told her detective stories were pap for the masses and it was time she wrote literature instead. He accused Hamish of having dyed his fiery red hair. He told Jessie Currie - who repeated all the last words of her twin sister - that she needed psychiatric help.'I speak as I find,' he bragged. Voices saying, 'I could kill that man,' could be heard from Lochdubh to Cnothan.And someone did.Now Hamish is faced with a bewildering array of suspects. And he's lost the services of his clumsy policeman, Charlie, who has resigned from the force after throwing Chief Inspector Blair into the loch. Can Hamish find the killer on his own?Praise for M. C.
