    In A House of Knives, the wayward son of a rising MP is found mutilated and burnt in suspicious circumstances and Breen and Tozer soon realise this could be the result of the corrupting influence of some very powerful people; and A Book of Knives finds Tozer looking into an unsolved murder from that is important to her past.

This leads to an opportunity to explore the fate of his beloved daughter, so Pieter finds himself drawn back into the life of a detective - but dark secrets lurk behind every door...

But then a body shows up and Thea is soon untangling her way through a web of tragedy that engulfs this beautiful Gloucestershire town...

    She also finds a body hanging from the rafters of a barn; discovers a body laid out like a sacrificial victim on Notgrove Barrow during Halloween season; visits Blockley and has to investigate a murder next door to her abode; and finds a skeleton at the roots of an old beech tree - with no concrete evidence of who the bones belong to.
