Thief on the Cross

by David S. Brody


Why would a collector of ancient American artifacts hand over his prized pieces to a historian and then shoot himself in the head? And why does an ancient Templar scroll in his possession refer to Jesus Christ as “The Thief on the Cross?” The answer places historians Cameron Thorne and Amanda Spencer at the dangerous intersection of secret American history and modern geopolitical intrigue.

Keeping Hope Alive

by Dawn Kopman Whidden


A young couple taking a leisurely walk through the woods are shocked when their quiet, peaceful stroll ends as they come across what is, without question, a human skull.

When Detectives Jean Whitley and Marty Keal are called to investigate, two more bodies are uncovered nearby in shallow graves, but unlike the first, these murder victims have just met their demise.

Now not only do the detectives have to discover the identities of all three victims but have to see if the victims are somehow connected or if it’s just a coincidence all three were dumped so close together?

While Jean and Marty search for the answers, Marty’s fiancé, Psychiatrist Dr. Hope Rubin, is working hard to get her patient Brad Madison released from Armistace Hospital for Children, where he has been living since the brutal murder of his own parents, while trying to take care of her own personal business of planning her wedding. But then the unforeseeable happens. Hope disappears and Brad claims he knows what happens. Can the disturbed boy be trusted to be telling the truth and is Hope’s kidnapping in any way linked to the three victims found in the nearby woods?

Marty and Jean’s search for the killer become much more desperate and horrifyingly personal when Hope is kidnapped.

Will they find her before it’s too late? Or will she become another victim? Will the detectives be able to KEEP HOPE ALIVE?

The Butchered Man (The Northminster Mysteries Book 1)

by Harriet Smart


Northminster, 1840: a once-picturesque cathedral city, where dirty smoke stacks now rival ancient spires. When workmen make the shocking discovery of a mutilated corpse in a ditch outside the ancient walls, Giles Vernon and Felix Carswell are charged with solving the case.
Intelligent and practical, Chief Constable Major Vernon has transformed the old city watch into a modern police force, and he throws himself into the investigation with the same energy. But as he probes a murky world of professional gamblers and jilted lovers, he is drawn into a dangerous emotional game that threatens to undermine his authority.
Newly-qualified police surgeon Felix Carswell is determined to make his way in the world on his own terms despite being the bastard son of prominent local grandee Lord Rothborough. Called to treat a girl in an asylum for reformed prostitutes, what he uncovers there brings him into conflict with his new employer, Vernon, and throws the case into disarray.
Together they must overcome their differences and find the brutal truth behind the mystery of The Butchered Man.
The Butchered Man is the first Northminster Mystery featuring intrepid early-Victorian detectives Vernon and Carswell.
