Joe Plantagenet Crime Thrillers
Seeking the Dead (Book 1)
When Carmel Hennessy begins a new job in North Yorkshire, she finds the historic city of Eborby gripped by fear. A killer is on the prowl - a killer who binds and asphyxiates his victims before leaving their bodies in isolated churchyards. The press are calling him the Resurrection Man.
Tragic events from the past link Carmel with Detective Inspector Joe Plantagenet, who faces the task of finding the killer before more lives are lost. Joe's investigations lead him to a pub with a sinister history and he is forced to consider that the case may have occult connections.
Playing with Bones (Book 2)
On a grey October morning, the strangled body of a teenager is found in the North Yorkshire city of Eborby, a mutilated doll lying by her side.
Singmass Close, where the girl is found, has a famously sinister past. Reputedly haunted by the ghosts of children, it was the hunting ground of the Doll Strangler, a ruthless killer of the 1950s who was never brought to justice.
With the recent disappearance of another young female and an escaped convict at large, this horrific murder stretches Detective Inspector Joe Plantagenet's team to the limit. Is a copycat killer on the loose, or could the Doll Strangler really be back?
As the bodies start mounting up and Joe's questioning brings him closer to the real strangler, he comes to suspect a shockingly creepy connection between all three cases . . .
