    Every cop has a personal 'White': a criminal who got away with murder - or worse - and was able to slip back into life, leaving the victim's family still seeking justice, the cop plagued by guilt. Back in the 1990s, Billy Graves was one of the Wild Geese: a tight-knit crew of young mavericks, fresh to police work and hungry for justice, looking out for each other and their 'family' of neighbourhood locals. But then Billy made some bad headlines by accidentally shooting a ten-year-old boy while bringing down an angel-dusted berserker in the street. Branded a loose cannon, he spent years in one dead-end posting after another. Now he has settled into his role as sergeant in the Night Watch, content simply to do his job and go home to his family. But when he is called to the 4 a.m. stabbing of a man in Penn Station, Billy discovers the victim is the 'White' of one of his his oldest friends, a former member of the Wild Geese, who is now retired. As the past comes crashing into the present, the Wild Geese seemingly rise from the dead, and the bad old run-and-gun days of the 90s are back with a vengeance. Richard Price, writing for the first time under the pen-name of Harry Brandt, is one of America's most gifted novelists. He has always written brilliantly about New York City, and this electrifying novel - fast-moving and stripped to the bone - marks a heart-stopping new departure.

    If you were to look at Dexter Morgan, you'd think he is like any other man. But he's not every other man; he has a dark secret hobby... he's a serial killer! And, so far, he's killed 36 people and never been caught, thanks to his expertise in hiding evidence - working for the Miami Police has its perks.

    In Darkly Dreaming Dexter, our 'hero' finds his very organised life disrupted when another killer with a very similar style to his own appears in Miami. But Dexter soon realises that this mysterious killer isn't just invading his turf, he's asking him to come out and play...

    Dearly Devoted Dexter sees Miami's best-dressed killer back in action, working with his work nemesis Sgt. Doakes to bring down a sadistic torturer.

And in Dexter In the Dark, Rita and Dexter are planning their wedding, but a sinister character, Death, is stalking him - how will he survive?

    An ideal collection of crime fiction titles for fans of the award-winning show (which stars Six Feet Under's Michael C. Hall as the titular character) or those yet to be introduced to the works of Jeff Lindsay and Dexter's 'Dark Passenger', the original perspective, self-deprecating humour and stunning pace of this series is what has makes the Dexter books so thrilling.

His car has been firebombed, his ex is dating someone else, and his twin brother is still out to destroy him. But Private doesn't rest, and nor do its clients: not the LAPD who need Private's help catching two scumbags with diplomatic immunity, and not the client who has just confessed to murdering his wife.

    This is the dazzling new novel from Ruth Rendell. When the bones of two severed hands are discovered in a box, an investigation into a long buried crime of passion begins. And a group of friends, who played together as children, begin to question their past. 'For Woody, anger was cold. Cold and slow. But once it had started it mounted gradually and he could think of nothing else. He knew he couldn't stay alive while those two were alive. Instead of sleeping, he lay awake in the dark and saw those hands. Anita's narrow white hand with the long nails painted pastel pink, the man's brown hand equally shapely, the fingers slightly splayed.' Before the advent of the Second World War, beneath the green meadows of Loughton, Essex, a dark network of tunnels has been dug. A group of children discover them. They play there. It becomes their secret place. Seventy years on, the world has changed. Developers have altered the rural landscape. Friends from a half-remembered world have married, died, grown sick, moved on or disappeared. Work on a new house called Warlock uncovers a grisly secret, buried a lifetime ago, and a weary detective, more preoccupied with current crimes, must investigate a possible case of murder. In all her novels, Ruth Rendell digs deep beneath the surface to investigate the secrets of the human psyche. The interconnecting tunnels of Loughton in The Girl Next Door lead to no single destination. But the relationships formed there, the incidents that occurred, exert a profound influence - not only on the survivors but in unearthing the true nature of the mysterious past.
