DESCRIPTION:

His best friend has been murdered, his daughter’s in danger.

There’s only one answer. Going back to his old life.

The one that cost him his wife…

Michael Brady was a high-flying detective, working on a high-profile case.

And much too close to the truth.

Someone arranged a hit-and-run.

But they missed Brady. And hit his wife.

And after six months sitting by her bed, he took the only decision he could take. He turned the machine off.

Now he’s back home in Whitby. Trying to rebuild his life. And be a good dad to his teenage daughter.

But when his best friend is murdered Brady – unwillingly at first – is drawn into the investigation.

And when the only people he has left are threatened, he finds there’s only one answer.

Going back to his old life…

Salt in the Wounds is the first novel from award winning writer and blogger Mark Richards. It’s set in Whitby, on the North Yorkshire coast, and tells the story of former Detective Inspector Michael Brady. His wife’s dead and he’s back in his home town – trying to rebuild his life and be a good dad to his 13 year old daughter.

So I had to make the decision. For my daughter. Her life was on hold. And she needs someone. At least I’ve got a sister here. God knows Ash isn’t going to ask me if she has a problem with her periods.

But then Brady’s best friend is murdered. And if he’s going to stop the wrong person going on trial, there’s only one option. He has to act.

He couldn’t let someone else control his life. Especially when ‘someone else’ was Bill Calvert. He owed it to Grace, to Ash. Most of all he owed it to himself. He hadn’t asked for this. But he had to deal with it. Sort it out, find the killer. And then start his new life. ‘I love you, Grace,’ he said. And walked back down the cliff path…

…And finally, Brady has to risk everything.

This was the moment to turn back. Wait for some uniforms. Say, ‘He’s down there. At the end of the pier.’ Leave it to someone younger, fitter. Someone without a daughter. But Gorse was waiting. And he had Carl. And he knew. He knew who’d killed Grace…

DESCRIPTION:

When a bookshop patron commits suicide, his favorite store clerk must unravel the puzzle he left behind in this “intriguingly dark, twisty” (Kirkus Reviews) debut novel from an award-winning short story writer.

Lydia Smith lives her life hiding in plain sight. A clerk at the Bright Ideas bookstore, she keeps a meticulously crafted existence among her beloved books, eccentric colleagues, and the BookFrogs–the lost and lonely regulars who spend every day marauding the store’s overwhelmed shelves.

But when Joey Molina, a young, beguiling BookFrog, kills himself in the bookstore’s upper room, Lydia’s life comes unglued. Always Joey’s favorite bookseller, Lydia has been bequeathed his meager worldly possessions. Trinkets and books; the detritus of a lonely, uncared for man. But when Lydia flips through his books she finds them defaced in ways both disturbing and inexplicable. They reveal the psyche of a young man on the verge of an emotional reckoning. And they seem to contain a hidden message. What did Joey know? And what does it have to do with Lydia?

As Lydia untangles the mystery of Joey’s suicide, she unearths a long buried memory from her own violent childhood. Details from that one bloody night begin to circle back. Her distant father returns to the fold, along with an obsessive local cop, and the Hammerman, a murderer who came into Lydia’s life long ago and, as she soon discovers, never completely left. “Both charming and challenging” (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review), Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore is a “multi-generational tale of abandonment, desperation, and betrayal…inventive and intricately plotted” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

DESCRIPTION:

Raven Transcending Fear is part memoir, part self-help guide. It’s the authors’ raw and personal story of childhood abuse and diving deep into her terror before ultimately getting comfortable with fear and transcending it. Though Terri had loving people in her life, her mother was abusive and enabled others to traumatize her. To get drugs, her mother allowed strangers to assault her 11-year-old body sexually. She then left her and her sister alone on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Terri’s childhood left her filled with fear until she embarked on a spiritual journey and learned the skills of empowerment, which have allowed her to transcend the fear and regain a connection with the Divine. Everyone is born fearless and knowing who they are and what their purpose is. However, life experience or abuse may instill fear and break the connection with our authentic selves. Through this memoir, readers will go on the journey with her as Terri moves from a life ruled by fear to fearlessness.
