The Searcher by Simon Toyne

Solomon Creed just walked away from a plane crash and only knows his name because it is sewn into the jacket he’s wearing. His past is clouded and his future could be very uncertain indeed because the town he’s walking towards, Redemption, Arizona, holds many secrets—secrets he must uncover to save a man named James Coronado, someone he has never met. While Solomon may have some unusual skills, time travel isn’t one of them, which is a shame because James Coronado was buried that morning. All Solomon has to help him is a book by the Reverend Jack Cassidy, Redemption’s founder, and Coronado’s widow, Holly. The plane had been carrying a precious cargo and the man that cargo was destined for will raze the town to the ground himself to get it. Toyne, author of the Sanctus series, gives us the start of another taut page turning trilogy. – Paula Longhurst

What do a prosecutor, an IT nerd, and a disgraced former cop have in common? They're planning the perfect crime, a simple cash grab that won't be reported and could net them a cool hundred grand. The problem is there's no such thing as the perfect crime. Also, one of the would-be criminals is a sociopath. When robbery turns to murder even a sociopath can lose control of the situation. A twisty little standalone from the author of the Hugo Marston series with an antihero you can't help rooting for. – Paula Longhurst

Trigger Mortis slots in neatly between Fleming’s Goldfinger and Thunderball. Bond has whisked Pussy Galore back to London with him but their affair is rapidly losing its luster. A new assignment, protecting England’s most famous racing driver, beckons. During his training and the race Bond encounters driver Logan Fairfax and motoring journalist Jeopardy Lane. SMERSH rears its ugly Russian head and causes Bond to focus on their associate Jason Sin, a Korean millionaire who deals death using a pack of cards. Sin has photographs of a U.S. Vanguard rocket, and Bond suspects sabotage. He doesn’t know how wrong he is. Trigger Mortis is vintage Bond, with all the style, girls, car chases, and thrills Fleming’s fans could ask for. – Paula Longhurst

Fjallbacka resident Christian Thydell is a literary rising star. His novel, The Mermaid, is being heaped with accolades. Erica Falck shares a publisher with him, and when Christian begins receiving threatening letters, Erica, pregnant with twins, shares her concerns with Gaby von Rosen, their mutual publisher, and with her husband, Detective Patrik Hedstrom. Patrik is juggling a slew of cases, working too hard to really take notice, and Gaby feeds the story to the media to boost Christian's book sales. Then Patrik's missing-person’s case turns to murder and other close friends of Christian's are targeted. Erica is baffled. What is keeping them all from talking? What secret are they willing to take to their graves rather than see revealed? Only Christian knows the identity of the warped mind behind the letters; in order to protect his family he's decided he's going to give her exactly what she wants. And for Erica, tragedy is about to strike closer to home than she ever thought possible. – Paula Longhurst
