'Superb - one of the best real-life copy books ever written.' Lee Child In a true crime cross between James Ellroy and David Simon's The Wire, A Good Month for Murder follows twelve homicides, three police-involved shootings and the furious hunt for an especially brutal killer in Washington D.C. After gaining unparalleled access to the homicide unit in Prince George's County, which borders the nation's capital, bestselling author Del Quentin Wilber begins shadowing the talented, often quirky detectives who get the call when a body falls. After a quiet couple of months, all hell breaks loose: suddenly every detective in the squad is scrambling to solve one shooting and stabbing after another. Meanwhile, the entire unit is obsessed with a stone-cold 'red ball', a high-profile case involving a seventeen-year-old honour student attacked by a gunman who kicked down the door to her house and shot her in her bed. This is the inside story of how a team of detectives carry out their almost impossible job. Murder is the police investigator's ultimate crucible: to solve a killing, a detective must speak for the dead. A Good Month for Murder is a compelling true crime account which shows what it takes to succeed when the stakes couldn't possibly be higher.

1 May 1976. Thirteen-year- old ‘Minnie’ Hargreaves is murdered, and her body half buried on a building site at the edge of Holme Hill, a village in West Yorkshire where she lived with her parents. David Harrison, a near-neighbour, is convicted of the crime and sentenced to life imprisonment. He dies in prison. 43 years later, Holme Hill becomes the scene of two more murders: Rhys Williams, a lonely old widower, found on a bench by the village cricket ground. A week later Peter Smith is found face down at the organ in Salem Chapel. Both corpses have a quotation from the Bible pinned to them, along with dates - the first two when Williams and Smith were murdered; the last two, dates in the future. DCI Donald May heads the investigation. Born in Holme Hill his family worshipped at Salem. The murders seem inexplicable: two blameless old men; seemingly the same murderer. A darker past emerges as May, DS Viv Trubshaw and DC Charlie Riggs investigate. Then a third murder, as forecast. May has seven days to the fourth. He discovers much more than just the murderer: all in one month; a month of murder.

It's not the season of good will to all men... The festive month is kicking off in style and Pearl is rushed off her feet with her restaurant, The Whitstable Pearl. She's also busy planning her own family Christmas and providing mulled wine for a charity church fundraiser when Christmas cards begin arriving all over town - filled with spiteful messages from an anonymous writer. Pearl's curiosity is piqued but having pledged not to take on a case at her detective agency before Christmas, she reluctantly agrees that Canterbury's DCI Mike McGuire should take over; poisoned pen cards are after all a matter for the police. And with only the church fundraiser now between Pearl and Christmas, she invites McGuire along as her guest. The event appears to be a great success; St Alfred's church hall is packed and Pearl happily finds herself standing close to McGuire beneath some mistletoe . . . but then a guest suddenly collapses. Too much of Pearl's delicious mulled wine - or could it be something more sinister? The last thing Pearl expects for Christmas is murder but soon the bodies are piling up. Can Pearl possibly solve the mystery in time to make 25th December an unforgettable day - or will the murderer contrive to ensure her goose is well and truly cooked before then? Praise for Julie Wassmer's Whistable Pearl mysteries . . . 'Thoroughly enjoyable with a host of wonderful characters - I adore Dolly! - and evocative descriptions of Whitstable. Perfect for foodies too. Pearl is great and the ongoing will they/won't they love story with McGuire is compelling. Comforting, cosy and entertaining with excellent Agatha Christie-style reveals. I love these books!'

THE MURDER-OF-THE-MONTH CLUBCaptain Monty Chichester, a retired British naval officer, and his wife Isobel run an old boarding house in Whitcliffe-on-the-Sea, a fictional village on the Maine coast. The town is perpetually shrouded in smog, partly due to fog perpetually laying over the harbor and smoke from a local coat factory. Also residing at the inn, besides their beautiful granddaughter Estelle who is the new village librarian, and the Captain's elderly mother, are three roomers of advanced age: Fiona Cottsworth, the former librarian; Iris Wimbledon, an actress "at liberty;" and Ben Fawkes, a plumber. They are all immigrants from England so they make up a senior citizen "Little British community" in America. All but Estelle are members of an afternoon club which meets at the inn and takes up diversions such as bridge or whist. Their current "phase" is dissecting murder novels. To the inn comes a young American, Stephen Longcommon, who learns from Captain Chichester that everyone in Whitcliffe is doomed to die -- from the village factory's pollution. Stephen shows concern but is more interested in Estelle. He is liked by those at the inn, but none knows why he has come to Whitcliffe. Isobel, Fiona, and Iris agree they are growing tired of the current phase. Fiona remarks that they have read and analyzed so many murder novels, they know enough about murder to commit the perfect crime. The notion is taken up at the next meeting and all agree that would make a splendid new phase for the club. They agree to do in everyone in Whitcliffe who has to do with the coat factory's pollution. This includes its elderly owner, Horace Dingle; his slightly younger wife Irene; their lawyer Guy Farnsberry (with whom Irene is having an affair); and three public officials on-the-take: Mayor Pim; Health Commissioner Roxbury; and Cyril Spade, chairman of the village Committee on Environmental Control. Six polluters, each marked for death. They will be murdered one-a-month, their name
