Alex Price, a bush pilot during the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, is looking forward to a pleasant evening with his old friend and former prospecting partner Stan, and Stan’s lovely Athabascan wife Angie. But under his horrified gaze, Stan dies a violent death in the explosion of his vehicle. No fool, Alex perceives a possible threat to Angie. And he’s right; assassins are moving right behind him. On the run, Alex and Angie share their grief and their fury, engaging in a deadly game of cat and mouse with no idea who is trying to kill them, or why. “A retired pilot, Porter writes gracefully about flying in Alaska in his soaring debut, evoking its breathtaking beauty and the joy of traveling across the state in a small plane...The fast pacing and gorgeous scenery hook the reader from the beginning.” —Publishers Weekly Don Porter has built mountaintop radio and TV repeaters in Alaska and earned a full compliment of pilot’s licenses. Then, trading snow for sunshine, he spent 10 years in Hawaii as Director of Maintenance for ABC. Deadly Detail is his first novel. www.dongporter.com

2. Knight of Betrayal A Medieval Haunting - Karen Perkins

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A Haunting Novel of Murder and Betrayal in Medieval England.

A stand-alone paranormal historical thriller in the award-winning Yorkshire Ghost Story collection by Karen Perkins, Knight of Betrayal will plunge you into the vibrant and deadly world of medieval England: Henry II, Thomas Becket - and four murderous knights.

1170, Canterbury Cathedral.

Four knights break sanctuary to brutally murder Archbishop Thomas Becket for their king, Henry II. Running from their crime, the four knights - Hugh de Morville, William de Tracy, Reginald FitzUrse and Richard le Brett - flee north to Knaresborough Castle where Morville is overlord. Initially celebrating ridding their king of the pest that Becket had become, they find themselves increasingly isolated as the Church and public opinion turn against them.

2015, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

August is feva time - a celebration and festival of the arts. The Castle Players are to perform a play of their own creation: Knight of Betrayal, based on the events leading up to Becket's murder. Taking the honour very seriously, they work hard to get into character - but are they channelling more than just the characters of the knights they are portraying? As the group of friends begins to disintegrate, concern becomes certainty - this is one opening night that will never be forgotten as life in the small Yorkshire market town of Knaresborough tumbles into horror.

Likened by independent reviewers on Amazon to the Bront sisters, Edgar Allen Poe, Barbara Erskine and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karen Perkins' novels are filled with unflinching honesty and an acute understanding of human nature. She explores not only the depths of humanity, but the motivation behind the actions and pain people inflict upon each other, as well as the repercussions of these actions not only in the short term, but also the later generations who live with the implications of the past.

3. JENNET now she wants the children - Karen Perkins

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: 21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jennet will have your heart and your fear in equal measure’

‘Through Jennet we see how cruelty can drive even the most ordinary people to hatred and, in Jennet's case, evil’

Yorkshire is in the grip of a heatwave, and Thruscross Reservoir has dried up to reveal the remains of the drowned village of Thores-Cross beneath.

Playing in the peaty mud which coats the valley floor, four-year-old Clare Wainwright finds an old inkpot, and can’t wait to show it to her best friend, Louise. But when Emma sees it, her reaction is shocking, and both families are plunged into their worst nightmares.

Emma knows what the inkpot portends:

Jennet has woken.

Now she wants the children.

This is not a gore-ridden, jump-scare horror story. This is more real than that. Jennet is a story about the horrific things that people do to each other, and the way we react to that maltreatment – which does not always end with death.

Jennet’s story is a horror story because it’s not necessarily fiction. It reflects the way women were treated in the time that Jennet lived. It reflects the psychology of the abuse cycle. And it reflects real life. All of it.

If, as I believe, the spirit does not die when the physical body dies, then how many spirits are looking for vengeance today?

What wrongs will you want to right when you pass through that veil? What will I?

This is the conclusion of Jennet’s story, which began in The Haunting of Thores-Cross. I hope she finds peace. I really do.
