Aphrodite

By Russell Andrews
Authors:
Russell Andrews
Whenever the word Aphrodite is whispered somebody dies. The victims never know what it meant: is it a person, a product, a code word - what? And why is keeping its meaning secret, so important?Justin Westwood has retreated from reality by taking a menial post with the police department in Long Island. Mindless traffic duty and a lot of booze stop him reliving the past, but his dormant professionalism is reluctantly awakened when he realises that the death of a young journalist is deliberate, not accidental. Retracing the woman's movements in the hours before her death, Justin learns she's been in trouble for quoting some erroneous facts in an obituary of a man who had been living in the local old people's home. Not the sort of mistake which normally brings a duo of professional hitmen to the door of a fallible reporter, and certainly not one which brings the FBI into town. As Justin attempts to unravel the puzzle, he finds someone is a step ahead of him, disposing of witnesses and setting him up for the rap. Realising he has to face real life at its starkest if he is to survive, he goes solo - and finds himself at the centre of one of the greatest conspiracies of his time.Praise for Russell Andrews 'A fast moving thriller in the Grisham genre' Sunday Telegraph'I defy you to figure out who dunnit, why they dunnit, or how they dunnit' Janet Evanovich

Act Of God

By Susan R. Sloan
Authors:
Susan R. Sloan
A bomb destroys a medical centre in Seattle, killing over a hundred staff and patients. While no-one claims responsibility, the centre has been the target of anti-abortionists and the authorities are sure that pro-life campaigners are behind the attack, a view that is swiftly reinforced when various pieces of evidence lead them to arrest Lieutenant Corey Hamlin, whose wife aborted his child when he was away at sea. Dana McAuliffe is asked to defend Hamlin, a task she instinctively wants to decline, but when she meets the accused man she quickly discerns that the case against him is far from water-tight and that he is in all probablity innocent. As the trial draws closer she also realises that both she and her client are being manipulated by political forces with scant regard for justice: they are wanting the trial to be on the abortion issue itself and are quite prepared to drag in her own life and secrets to get the result they want. With her personal and professional life on the line, as well as trying to keep an innocent man from the electric chair, Dana has to find the real perpetrator of the bombing outrage if they are to have any chance of survival.
