On a stifling summer's day, 11-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. 'Jack's in charge,' she said. 'I won't be long.' But she never comes back. Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: 'I could have killed you'. Meanwhile Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they're alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother. But the truth can be a dangerous thing....

The best story I've listened to for long time. Can't recommend it highly enough. From start to finish I was gripped by the plot and enthralled by the characters. Brilliant.

What would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences? This question and its answer lie at the heart of Absolute Proof, an international thriller from best-selling author Peter James. The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat. If Ross Hunter can survive long enough to present the evidence....

My favourite book of the Year. Absolutely loved it, even more so after the final part where Peter James explained the background for the story. Amazing!

In this brilliant debut, a psychologist finds herself drawn into the dark world of a serial killer - who may be closer than she thinks.... Ray and Marie Benson killed 13 women before they were caught, tried and imprisoned. Five of their victims were never found. Six years later psychologist Alice Quentin discovers a woman's body on the waste ground at Crossbones Yard. The wounds are horrifyingly similar to the Bensons' signature style.
