The patience of his superiors wears thin, while the actions of an anonymous agent provocateur serve only to advance the moment when the killer must strike again.

A SPATE OF VICIOUS ATTACKS upon valuable Herdwick sheep, the sudden disappearance of a foreign hiker, and the unexplained drowning of a woodland hermit - a series of apparently unconnected events - draw Detective Inspector Daniel Skelgill to the white-knuckle passes and isolated dales of deepest Lakeland. As straws in the wind begin to suggest there is sorcery afoot - and perhaps some connection to an equally sinister trade in human traffic - Skelgill and his team risk dire consequences as they strive to fathom the mystery, infiltrate the secretive ring and expose its evil perpetrators. In the fifth Inspector Skelgill novel, the maverick British detective faces what is his greatest challenge yet, as he strives to overcome an error of judgement that could leave his career - and his life - in tatters.

Crone's Book of Magical Words (previously published as The Crone's Book of Words) by Valerie Worth is the book you've been waiting for! In its pages are over 125 spells, incantations and charms. If you can think of a purpose for a spell, it's probably in this book. Need a spell to summon a ghost? Or perhaps you want the opposite: a spell to free a house from being haunted. They're both in this book. Do you need something to help you lose weight or have longevity? You'll find them here. Or perhaps you want to pass through a locked door. It's all in this book. Even if you don't know a thing about magic, you can use this book. The spells are easy, poetic, and evocative. For example, to cure a wart the instructions are: "Stamp within a silver cup mullein and houseleek together. Stir them with a sparrow's feather. Let it draw the juices up; Twenty times upon one day, brush them over the excrescence; Under sunlight dry the essence ? Soon the wart must shrink away." The range in this book is phenomenal. You'll find a simple fertility charm and a way to conjure with smoke. You'll read about how to bring rain and how to stop rain from falling. You'll learn how to tell fortunes with sand or with tea leaves. This is more than just a book about magic, it is a folklorist's bonanza. If you're ready to win another's love or to sweeten someone's disposition, if you want to turn hair long and golden or discover tree spirits, this is the book you must have. Whether you have been doing magic for a long time or are a beginner, this book is a must.

A STAND-ALONE MURDER MYSTERY, #9 IN THE SERIES. MEET MAVERICK BRITISH DETECTIVE DI SKELGILL... "MAD, BAD AND JUST A LITTLE BIT COZY." WHEN LATTER-DAY LOTHARIO and expert kayaker Roger Alcock disappears on the night of the 'Great Cockermouth Flood', his attractive wife Maeve takes 24 hours longer than might reasonably be expected to notify the authorities. But when Roger's corpse washes up on the Solway coast, a post mortem suggests his death could legitimately be classified as misadventure. DI Skelgill, however - engaged as a rescuer to the inundated Cumbrian town - detects a sinister undercurrent that pervades the tightly knit community in which Roger Alcock moved. As the floodwater recedes, reasons surface why Roger's erstwhile associates might celebrate his demise. Could this be a murder - of the kind that suits the innocent as well as the guilty to hold their peace? Could spurned lovers and fleeced creditors and others who might benefit be acting in silent concert? Jealousy, revenge, greed... these are sentiments that trouble Skelgill - for he realises that unless he can divine a motive, he cannot begin to ascribe a crime. To penetrate the mystery he enlists a female duo, a visiting TV reporter, and the sister-in-law of the late Roger Alcock. But are these alluring ladies simply playing him for their own devices? While DS Jones is temporarily absent, Skelgill becomes doubly conflicted. Barely treading water in the case, he flounders in the perpetrator's wake. Can his famous 'sixth sense' come to his rescue in time - or will a second murder erase forever all trace of the killer?

ONE WEEK AFTER THE DEATH of his 93-year-old twin brother, the reclusive Declan Thomas O'More is found murdered in his study at the ancestral family estate, rambling and isolated Crummock Hall. Suspicion immediately falls upon his five great nieces and nephews, who between them stand to inherit the considerable proceeds of their grandfather's will - along with a valuable library of antiquarian books, a collection that is Declan's lifetime work. And yet each member of this generation - which includes a famous actor and a successful author - is apparently wealthy in their own right. Why would any of them murder their great uncle? DI Skelgill and his team must unravel a mystery that not only harks back to the tragic drowning of the children's parents in Crummock Water in the 1980s, but may also have its roots in the despicable Triangular Trade that enriched so many British and Irish merchant families in the eighteenth century.

This Sidewise Award-winning series starring detective Lord Darcy and his sorcerer sidekick, Sean O Lochlainn, takes us into an alternate reality where Richard the Lionheart’s descendants rule the Anglo-French Empire and the laws of magic have developed in place of the laws of physics. Murder and Magic, comprised of the first four stories of the acclaimed Lord Darcy series, finds Lord Darcy solving murders using his wits, a keen eye for observation, and a few choice magic tricks. In “The Eyes Have it,” Lord Darcy must figure out who killed the taciturn playboy, the Count D’Evreux. In the political thriller “A Case of Identity,” Lord Darcy picks apart the disappearance of the Marquis of Cherbourg, especially mysterious considering the escalating cold war with Poland. Lord Darcy and Master Sean investigate a body coated in blue paint already occupying a coffin built for the late Duke of Kent in “The Muddle of the Woad.” Literary humor is at the heart of “In a Stretch of the Imagination,” where the head of an important publishing house commits suicide under suspicious circumstances.
