Izzie invites her gorgeous boyfriend, Tye, to her family's annual lake house vacation. After Tye disappears from their bed, Izzie finds him standing over her hot twin brother as he sleeps on the couch. Aroused by what she sees, Izzie hides in the shadows and watches as her masculine boyfriend vulnerably explores his secret desires with the hot, hung men in her family as they peacefully sleep. This story contains very explicit descriptions of erotic and sexual situations written for extreme genital arousal. Mature listeners only.

The village of Mere Barton is facing a time of upheaval, with traditional lifestyles being forced out by newcomers. When local author Sheila Malory is asked to research the history of the village, she has her reservations; 'The Book' is one of the many projects of Annie Roberts. Miserly and controlling, Annie is at the heart of everything that goes on in Mere Barton, much to the resentment of her fellow villagers. When Annie suffers a fatal bout of self-inflicted food poisoning, there is more relief than grief around the village.

When widower Sidney Middleton is found dead in his cottage from carbon monoxide poisoning, Sheila Malory is deeply disturbed. On recent meetings the kindly old man had seemed in rude health and the official explanation that the wood-burning stove was faulty just doesn't seem to add up.

Michael Palmer’s latest novel pits a flawed doctor against a ruthless psychopath, who has made murder his art form. Dr. Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from PTSD—post traumatic stress disorder—spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless and disenfranchised in D.C. and Baltimore. In addition, he is constantly on the lookout for his war buddy, Umberto Vasquez, who was plucked from the streets by the military four years ago for a secret mission and has not been seen since.

This was a bit of a surprise buy as I'd been looking for a book to take with me on a train journey but couldn't find one by a well know author that I hadn't read previously! Took a chance on Michael Palmer and was very pleasantly surprised.



This was a thrilling book with a good plot, believable characters and a reader who narrated with feeling and you lost the fact a man was reading and heard the actual characters!

Invited to a Private View of the work of controversial artist Denzil Willoughby, the good citizens of Fethering are not quite sure what to expect. And it certainly turns out to be a lively affair, culminating in a confrontation between Willoughby and his ex-lover, followed by a heated argument with the gallery owner and a rival artist. But what no one could have anticipated was that the evening would end in sudden, violent death.

Not sure if it really worked and the ending was a bit of a let down to say the least.



Almost like the entire book was ruined by the author running out of ideas rather than waiting to see if he could think of something a bit more meaty.
