The duo find themselves on a perilous path towards a cruel conspiracy that goes far beyond class, colour and creed.

    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.

    These dark thrillers are based on real-life events and are brutal, intense and emotional.

    This collection contains books 1-3 in William Shaw's Breen & Tozer series.

    Written by Dominic Smith, this captivating read tells of a 17th century painting that links three lives across three continents over three centuries. In 1600s Amsterdam, Sara de Vos loses her daughter suddenly and turns to painting in her grief. She creates the artwork of a dark landscape of a girl watching an ice skater from the edge of a wood.

    In 1957 in New York, Martijn de Groot has this painting - At the Edge of a Wood - hanging above his bed. When it's stolen, he is bereft. Meanwhile, struggling art student Ellie Shipley agrees to forge the painting for a dubious art dealer. Finally, we arrive at Sydney in 2000 and Ellie is now a celebrated art historian and curator. She's curating an exhibition about the female painters of the Dutch Golden Age but then it becomes apparent the original version of this painting and her forgery are en route to the museum.

    Exhilarating from start to finish, this book is one you won't want to put down. Full of period detail and with its intriguing premise that threatens to see Ellie's life and reputation spiral out of control, it's a rewarding and elegantly written read.
