When Victoria is called in to investigate the theft of valuable marble statues from a north London cemetery, she soon finds out the lives of the cemetery staff are as tangled as the undergrowth which surrounds them. Vic’s plan is to nail the thieves and stay out of harm’s way, but things don’t work out as she expects. A lot of surveillance work takes place at night-a time when the cemetery becomes dangerous. A maniac is on the loose, but nobody thinks to tell Victoria. Also, one of the management is having perverse liaisons among the gravestones with the security staff, and the rest of the workers are up to no good.
What begins as a routine job soon turns into a murder inquiry. A body is found which shouldn’t be in the ground yet. Unfortunately, the police are less than co-operative and when one of the grave diggers is charged with murder, Vic is convinced they’ve got the wrong man. To add to this, her current lover is getting friendly with the manipulative Chloe, the cemetery assistant manageress, and her family problems are escalating. How can Vic find time to see that justice is done and wrap up her own investigation?

There's something sexy about detectives - and it's time crime novels admitted it. Crime & Passion novels are fast-paced murder mysteries in the British tradition - but the detectives and their suspects have adult tastes and desires.
Francesca Lyons is found dead in her art gallery. The cause of death isn't obvious, but her bound hands suggest foul play. The previous evening she had an argument with her husband, she had sex with someone, and two men left messages on the gallery's answering machine. Detective Chief Inspector Anderson has plenty of suspects, but can't find anyone with a motive. When Stephanie Pinkney, an art researcher, is found dead in similar circumstances Anderson's colleagues are sure that the culprit is a serial killer.
But Anderson is convinced that the murders are connected with threads of jealousy and greed. Unravelling the threads leads him to Andrea Maguire, a vulnerable, sensual art dealer with a quick-tempered husband and unsatisfied desires.
Anderson can prove that Andrea isn't the killer. He tells himself that there can be no harm in becoming involved with her. But is he making an untypical and dangerous mistake?

Until the day his wife and children are gunned down by

When the politicians and diplomats look the other way, he
becomes a hunter, guided by rage as much as by the desire for
justice. Wanted by the terrorists he's targeting as well as by the
police he’s evading, Quarry's grief for his murdered family
becomes the engine of his revenge.
A revenge that exacts a heavy price.
Fleeing from her scheming guardian and the prospect of a dull arranged marriage to a much older man, Abbie - a blonde and beautiful, but sexually innocent young Victorian woman - is thrown from her horse.

She is, however, reluctant to submit completely to his will and, as her guardian's search for her continues, her liberty is further jeopardised. Can the situation ever be resolved?
