Duntisbourne Abbots is a timeless and quintessentially English village nestled in the fertile hills of the Cotswolds in peaceful Gloucestershire. Recently widowed Thea Osbourne fears three weeks house-sitting there may prove a little dull, but her first night's sleep at Brook View is broken by a piercing scream. She assures herself it was only a fox and nothing more sinister, but then a body turns up... When Joel Jennison is found slaughtered in the same field where his brother's corpse had lain ten weeks previously, a whole community falls under suspicion. As a forty-something woman with no experience of detective work, she knows she shouldn't get involved, but in questioning neighbours Thea uncovers more tragedy and intrigue than she thought possible.

Once again, there's death on her doorstep... Thea throws herself into house-sitting for Babs and Cedric Angell in Lower Slaughter following her beloved father's death - anything to keep her busy and away from some of her rather difficult relatives. Although it's lonely, she has her spaniel Hepzie for company, and keeping the house in order and looking after the Angells' menagerie of animals does the trick for a short period of time. But when Thea's prickly older sister turns up, after witnessing a horrific killing, the timeless tranquillity of Lower Slaughter vanishes, replaced by the sinister connotations of the town's name.

The Mespot letters of Frederick Witts, dating from December 1915 to December 1920, span a pivotal period of modern history in Iraq. As commander of No.2 Mobile Bridging Train, Witts was responsible for the crossing of the Tigrisat the Shumran bend in February 1917. This hugely difficult feat proved to be the beginning of the end to three hundred and fifty years of continuous Ottoman rule in Mesopotamia. After the war, Witts, as Brigade Major, was active in Kurdistan and on theUpper Euphrates, and later joined the staff of General Coningham, the most prominent British commander during the 1920 insurrection. Covering the peculiarities of day to day life in the officers' mess, the harshness of the country and the ordeals of war against the Turk and Arab, Frederick Witts' letters, written with affection to his aged mother in Upper Slaughter, give a compelling account of the life and thoughts of a British officer on service in Mesopotamia. Happily some letters from his mother to him also survive, and they give a vivid sense of the difficulties of life just after the first war for a Cotswold squarson family deprived of servants.

When IRA Chief of Staff Mick O'Reilly, known as 'The Big Man', rescued the wounded Brendan Donnelly from under the noses of the British Paras the same night that his brother and top IRA marksman, Liam Donnelly, was shot and killed in the Falls Road, he had no idea that the same man would return ten years later with a plot that could destabilise the whole of the Western World - or that he would use his dead brother's thirteen year old son as a weapon of destruction. At the same time Salim Bin Gaafar, 'The Fist of Allah', is planning a multiple suicide bombing that would lead to the biggest loss of life on the United Kingdom mainland since the Second World War. Brigadier John Mason and his unofficial 'Crazy Gang' of top level operatives have only a very limited time to seek out and destroy both these threats to world order.
