"Fifteen years of injustice and it is all coming to a head in a rural town on the border of England and Scotland. Is it by design that John has been brought to this village; a village which is also home to a bent cop and a former hippy who's fate is forever entwined with his. Watch the puzzle pieces fall into place and be constantly amused and also surprised. This is a gripping tale where the setting in this quintessential village with its quirks and characters plays perfectly into the main plot. Enjoyed this book, it's clever, cunning and I would certainly read another by Cule Hinder." -- Amazon reviewer

An intriguing black comedy about dangerous liaisons in the English countryside around the turn of the millennium.

The fictional location is a sleepy Northumbrian village where some of the locals have their own saucy secrets and others have ones of a more criminal nature. These are all hung out to dry when a newcomer with a past, John Jarvis, arrives in town. He has revenge on his mind for past wrongs and he has his eye on his brutish neighbour's girlfriend, Elly.

Elly reciprocates John’s feelings but her boyfriend and his boorish friend Roger do not like it one bit. In no time at all the villagers are up in arms as they perceive a threat to their comfortable little lives.

The local police chief has his own dark secret where John is concerned and it can only be solved by murder. He galvanises the local vigilantes to do his dirty work for him but they have seriously underestimated his powers of survival.

Their attacks are rebuffed and the retribution visited upon the unholy alliance of the forces of evil and those of law and order is swift and merciless.

Through all the resulting chaos stalks The Vixen, the catalyst and the symbol of John Jarvis's revenge. She steals through the darkest recesses of the plot and scuppers the best laid plans of the plotters.

Death Turns A Trick : A Romantic and Humorous San Francisco Cozy (Rebecca Schwartz Mystery Series Book 1) (The Rebecca Schwartz Series), by Julie Smith. (Still free?)

"The writing is tight. Ms. Smith saves the sensory detail for the suspenseful moments when she wants to keep you teetering on the edge of your seat. The plot is free of hairpin twists and ridiculous feats, and the coincidences are lifelike. DEATH TURNS A TRICK is an unpretentious, fast-paced, fun read." -- Amazon reviewer

The FIRST book in the Rebecca Schwartz mystery series by Edgar Award Winner Julie Smith.

Funny and witty, with a clever, outspoken heroine.” -Library Journal

“Rebecca’s lively first-person narration brands her a new detective to watch.” -Wilson Library Bulletin

A ROLLICKING TALE OF MURDER, ROMANCE, AND A BORDELLO…

“A lively romp of a novel … Smith shows an Agatha Christie-like capacity for making much ado about clues, concocting straw hypotheses, and surprising us, in the end … Smith’s crisp storytelling … and her likable, unpredictable heroine will make readers look forward to more.” -San Francisco Chronicle

Rebecca Schwartz, nice Jewish lawyer with a few too many fantasies, is happily playing the piano in a whorehouse when she suddenly finds herself assigned to make sure a near-naked state senator escapes a police raid. That dirty job done, a lovely evening turns even more delightful when she’s picked up by the cops and spends the next two hours at the Hall of Justice. Could this day get any worse? Of Course! Guess who arrives home to find a dead hooker on her living room floor!

Handsome Parker Phillips, Rebecca’s new beau and the most attractive man she’s met in ages, is arrested for the murder. (Worse, she suspects he might actually have done it.)

On the plus side, another very attractive man is following the case--reporter Rob Burns of the San Francisco Chronicle, a possible ally. And there are other possibilities.

Fans of Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Bond, and Elizabeth Peters will get a kick out of this one.
