It was a horrible death-- Maurice Questing was lured into a pool of boiling mud and left there to die. Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn, far from home on a wartime quest for German agents, knew that any number of people could have killed him: the English exiles he had hated, the New Zealanders he had despised or the Māori he had insulted.

Our lady of pain : a novel by Elena Forbes( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a snowy February morning, London art dealer Rachel Tenison goes for a jog through Holland Park. Still giddy from the previous evening, her legs wobbly from too much drink and too little sleep, she trips and falls at the bottom of an icy hill. Lying on her back, enjoying the sensation of snowflakes melting on her skin, she savors the unexpected stillness of the moment. But then there's a sharp crack of a tree branch close behind her, followed by a voice, softly calling her name. Two days later, when Rachel's naked, frozen body is discovered in the park, bound and arranged in a strangely symbolic manner, detectives Mark Tartaglia and Sam Donovan are assigned the case. Still haunted by the Bridegroom, a chillingly seductive serial killer with a penchant for lonely girls and deadly heights, they're forced to put the past behind them as they try to uncover the identity of Rachel's murderer. They find that as much mystery surrounds Rachel's life as does her death, and when a tip from a journalist draws their attention to similarities between this murder and an unsolved crime committed the year before, the web becomes more tangled than ever

It's murder in the little English village, but the two local spinsters, Miss Campanula, the victim, and Miss Prentice, her friend who may have been the intended victim, are not exactly the beloved little old ladies of song and story.

But could they have been sufficiently unpleasant to provoke a murderer?

This ill-conceived act creates a chain of events that links Wren to other Londoners--people afflicted with their own obsessions and despairs. As these volatile characters come into Wren's life--and the life of his trusting fiancée--the consequences will change them all

The dramatic theft of an 18th century painting is discovered just moments before the old manor house from which it was stolen is set on fire. Making matters more grisly is the pile of bones sighted in the blazing inferno moments before the roof collapses.

Treason's harbour by Patrick O'Brian( Recording )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

TREASON'S HARBOUR opens in Malta, where the captain's "small, sweet-sailing frigate" is undergoing repairs. Stephen Maturin soon assumes the centre stage, for the dockyards and saloons of Malta are alive with Napoleon's agents, particularly the most important French agent in the Mediterranean, Lesueur - a man with a long memory and a taste for revenge. When that revenge takes the shape of the delicate and distracting Mrs Fielding, who also attracts the ever-wandering eye of Jack Aubrey, Stephen's sensibilities are severely tested and the admiralty's intelligence network is compromised. Maturin's cunning is the sole bulwark against sabotage of Aubrey's daring mission. The narrative turns from nefarious intrigues in Malta to an amazing mission in the Red Sea and back again. In his vivid descriptions of everything from a trek across the fly infested desert to a horrible death in the shark-infested sea, O'Brian conjures up another world that is utterly convincing
The Ravenscar dynasty by Barbara Taylor Bradford( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Taylor Bradford introduced the illustrious Harte family in her blockbuster A Woman of Substance. Now she has created an unforgettable new dynasty: the Deravenels. On a bitterly cold day in 1904, the Deravenel family's future changes forever. When Cecily Deravenel tells her eighteen-year-old son Edward of the death of his father, brother, uncle, and cousin in a fire, a part of him dies as well. Edward and his cousin Neville Watkins are suspicious of the deaths. They vow to seek the truth, avenge the deaths, and retake control of their family's business empire. As he grows into a handsome, charismatic man, Edward is torn between duty and desire. There are women in his life for whom he'll risk everything-and one woman who might destroy him. But madness and secrecy lie at the heart of the family, and Edward's enemies are far more ruthless than he knows. He will need his strength more than ever when the house of Deravenel is fatally rocked by betrayal from within. Who will become the ultimate ruler of the Deravenels?
