The fourth Stephens and Mephisto mystery from the author of the bestselling Dr Ruth Galloway series - a must-read for fans of Bryant and May. 'Mixes cosiness and sharpness in a way that recalls the best of Agatha Christie' Sunday Express (on Smoke and Mirrors) What do a murdered Brighton flower seller, the death of Cleopatra and a nude tableau show have in common? Read the most dangerous case yet for Stephens and Mephisto to find out. Christmas 1953. Max Mephisto and his daughter Ruby are headlining Brighton Hippodrome, an achievement only slightly marred by the less-than-savoury support act: a tableau show of naked 'living statues'. This might appear to have nothing in common with DI Edgar Stephens' current case of the death of a quiet flowerseller, but if there's one thing the old comrades have learned it's that, in Brighton, the line between art and life - and death - is all too easily blurred...

Every Wizard Academy is a little different. But Potent Conch School takes the prize for unusual location: it’s situated high on a cliffside fortress in Scotland; with towers, walls, and façade carved into the face of the cliff. The school is guarded by enchanted springs and streams, sea mage enchantments, and a monster or two. The only way to get there is by Pegasus, Unicorn, or Rainbow Bridge. Potent Conch was founded by an old Scottish sailor who traveled the world in his youth and brought back various esoteric magick ideas from remote parts of the world. Accordingly, his ideas of the Laws of Magick are a bit different from those of the standard British or European wizard schools. Numerology features in his world view of magick, as does the power of conch shells from Hawaii, the Golden Ratio, and strange and exotic artifacts. Follow the adventures of Ben Springfate and Rosemary Dochas Grey, student wizards who turn out to be NOT what they seem.

The Truly Devious box set includes all three paperbacks in the series and is perfect for gift-giving and binge reading. The Truly Devious case--an unsolved kidnapping and triple murder that rocked Ellingham Academy in 1936--has consumed Stevie for years. It's the very reason she came to the Academy. But after she arrives, more students turn up dead. Teen detective Stevie is on the case until she solves every mysterious death--from the past and the present. Praise for Truly Devious: "Parallel mysteries unfold with cleverly written dialogue, pate-turning brilliance, and a young sleuth as captivating as Hercule Poirot." --USA Today "The Agatha Christie-like ecosystem pairs with lacerating contemporary wit. A multilayered, modern detective story." --The New York Times Book Review Praise for The Vanishing Stair: "Take it from the world's most impatient reader: If the Truly Devious series is basically one long mystery book, The Vanishing Stair is middle part so enjoyable you won't even want to skip to the end." --Entertainment Weekly Praise for The Hand on the Wall: "A richly satisfying, Poirot-like ending for Johnson's inspired and inspiring teen sleuth." --Kirkus Reviews --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Marked by [McDermid’s] trademark stunners, including a climax that packs a vicious punch. And readers are again left to marvel at her ingenuity.” —Jay Strafford, Richmond Times-Dispatch From one of the finest crime writers we have, The Vanishing Point kicks off with a nightmare scenario—the abduction of a child in an international airport. Stephanie Harker is in the screening booth at airport security, separated from Jimmy Higgins, the five-year-old boy she’s in the process of adopting, when a man in a TSA uniform leads the boy away. The more Stephanie sounds the alarm, the more the security agents suspect her, and the further away the kidnapper gets. It soon becomes apparent that nothing in this situation is clear-cut. For starters, Jimmy’s birth mother was a celebrity—living in a world where conspiracy and obfuscation are excused for the sake of column inches. And then there are the bad boys in both women’s pasts. As FBI agent Vivian McKuras and Scotland Yard Detective Nick Nicolaides investigate on both sides of the pond, Stephanie learns just how deep a parent’s fear can reach. And the horrifying reality is that she has good reason to be afraid—for reasons she never saw coming. “[McDermid’s] work is taut, psychologically complex and so gripping that it puts your life on hold.” —The Times (London)
