Some secrets won't stay buried... THE LOST
____________

Private Investigator Harry Lind doesn't believe in ghosts. Little Grace Harper went missing over twenty years ago and missing girls can't just reappear. Or can they?

Reporter Jess Vaughan is convinced Grace is still alive, but she's going to need some help to prove it. When a brutal murder makes Harry reconsider Grace's disappearance, he and Jess are drawn together.

As Jess 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. Their search for the truth, it seems, could cost them their lives.

Cold Blood

Theresa Monsour

When Bunny Pederson disappears after being a bridesmaid at her best friend's wedding, the police call for volunteers to help search for her. One of them, a travelling shirt salesman, discovers the woman's amputated finger and the missing person inquiry becomes a murder investigation. In the absence of a body, the salesman, Justice Trip, is courted by the media - a position he'd learned to enjoy from a similar experience some years previously. Paris Murphy, a detective with the Minneapolis-St Paul's Police Department, remembers Trip from her schooldays and isn't convinced by his act as a caring citizen, especially when Bunny's body is found in an area Trip had visited. The case isn't strictly in her jurisdiction, but it is a welcome distraction from her failing marriage and her guilt over an affair she knows isn't really over. Justice Trip was ugly, still lived with his invalid father in a trailer park and his c.v. was a repetitive litany of firings from dead-end jobs. But he was very successful at killing people - and getting away with murder - until Paris Murphy crosses his path.

Clean Cut

Paris Murphy, half-Irish, half-Lebanese, is extremely good at her job, though far less successful in her private life, which is a mess: she's got an on/off marriage to an ER doctor, a looming affair with a colleague in the forensic department and a mother who always calls at the worst possible moment. Tracking down killers is a far more attractive proposition than tidying up her own affairs and her latest investigation is gripping.The murder of a prostitute in St Paul's is the latest in a series of killings, and the police are sure they know who they are after - a successful plastic surgeon, scion of a powerful local family - and it is up to Paris and her partner, Gabe, to prove their case. But hard evidence is hard to come by, until Paris herself attracts the killer's attention ...
