    Kate Morton writes intelligent and thought-provoking fiction and this collection contains three of her best novels.

    The House at Riverton is both a thrilling mystery and a tender love story. Influenced by the likes of Atonement and Gosford Park, it finds events in the summer of 1924 and the winter of 1999 intertwining in almost unbelievable ways. In the middle of 1920s, a young port takes his life on the eve of a glittering society party. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again after this night. At the end of the 20th century, 98-year-old Grace Bradley, once a housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide and this opens all sorts of old wounds - including a terrible and shocking secret.

    The Secret Keeper is a heartbreaking story of mysteries and secrets that moves between the 1930s, the 1960s and the present day; and The Lake House is an enchanting book about a missing child, an abandoned house and an unsolved mystery...

    Having served many years working for Strathclyde police, Denzil Meyrick adds a touch of authenticity and some dark humour to his crime thrillers that will appeal to fans of Ian Rankin. This collection includes the first three novels in the series starring DCI Jim Daley.

    Whisky from Small Glasses finds the body of a young woman being washed up on an idyllic beach on the west coast of Scotland and Daley is despatched from Glasgow to lead the investigation. He leaves his troubled marriage behind and travels far from home to deal with this, but then he comes across huge obstacles - not least the prime suspect being gruesomely murdered...

    In the follow-up The Last Witness, Daley finds criminal mastermind James Machie seemingly returning from the dead. He's determined to track down those who crossed him and Frank MacDougall (who, unbeknownst to Daley, is living under protection in Kinloch) is top of his list.

    Dark Suits and Sad Songs, the third in book in the series, has a senior Edinburgh civil servant taking his own life in Kinloch harbour. Following this tragedy, Daley finds out for himself just how murky the world of politics can be...

    This collection includes books 1-3 in Denzil Meyrick's DCI Jim Daley series.

    Featuring books 7 to 9 in Jacqueline Winspear's historical crime series featuring PI extraordinaire Maisie Dobbs, this collection will take you back to the early 1930s when all sorts of post-war mysteries occur.

    The Mapping of Love & Death follows the strange case of Michael Clifton, a young American who fought for the British Army (his father's native country) and was declared missing in action in August, 1914. In April, 1932, Michael's remains are unearthed in a French field and his parents ask Maisie Dobbs to try and find out who the unnamed nurse he was writing love letters to is. It finds Maisie looking back on her own bittersweet wartime love - and the revelation that Michael Clifton may not have died in combat after all...

    A Lesson in Secrets finds Maisie being given an undercover assignment directed by Scotland Yard's Special Branch and the Secret Service. She's sent to a college in Cambridge to monitor any activities deemed to be 'not in the interests of the Crown' and soon the college's controversial pacifist founder and principal is murdered...

    Elegy for Eddie finds a horse-loving gentle soul being killed in a violent 'accident'. The costermongers of Covent Garden are deeply sceptical about the cause of his death and call in Maisie for help. Her investigations bring her to a 'has-been' politician (named Winston Churchill), a callous press baron and the husband of one of her closest friends. Soon she's discovering lies and manipulation on a national scale.

    This collection includes books 7 to 9 in Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series.

    Delightfully gross and very funny, The Jam Doughnut that Ruined My Life follows Roman as his week becomes a jam-filled disaster all because of one solitary doughnut. Shortly after tucking into his Monday morning doughnut, Roman's week takes a sticky turn - he finds himself banned from eating for 24 hours, narrowly avoiding a faceful of warm toddler wee and being given a lift in a getaway van. He even finds time to style his teacher's guinea pig into a blue mohawk...

    In Attack of the Woolly Jumper, Roman's wearing a sweatshirt knitted by his Grandma when his school receives a royal visit. As part of the school's fundraising efforts, Roman's been sponsored to wear this crummy jumper ('crumper') all week - no matter what happens. Of course, within days it's almost been thrown down a toiler, caused a swan attack and made a biker swerve off the road.

    The Chicken Nugget Ambush finds Roman being put on a chicken nugget-only diet by his mum - just before going on an outdoor adventure trip.

Although at first he thinks this new world is a dream come true, he soon comes to realise it's not that simple...

    The Person Controller introduces the twins Fred and Ellie who like all the same things. They're good at video games but not so good at football or dealing with school bullies. When they meet the Mystery Man, they receive a video game controller unlike any they have seen before. It doesn't control any of their usual games, but when they find out what it does control they believe it's the key to all their wildest dreams.
