The second seasonal thriller from author Jackson Sharp, this time introducing DI Kerry Cox. It's Christmas, but Detective Inspector Kerry Cox is not celebrating. The holiday season is usually tough for Cox, but this year she's preparing to face down the ramifications of her most recent investigation: a fumbled child trafficking case. Distraction comes when the body of a retired ex-policeman is found, and DI Cox refuses to buy that it's a suicide. Despite warnings and pressures, she follows the trail stubbornly. Teaming up with the journalist, and ex-lover, who almost ruined her career, their investigations uncover a sinister network of paedophiles operating many years before. The killer they are hunting is desperate for revenge, revenge against those who evaded punishment all those years before. And as the bodies and historical evidence mount up, DI Cox's focus is torn between tracking down the serial killer, and bringing the upper echelons of British society to justice . . .

The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. But each time the day begins again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different guest. And someone is determined to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath...

Twelve Days by Paul Williams Book Resume:

"Atmospheric, gripping, scary and full of tension and suspense." "Agatha Christie updated for the modern age. Totally gripping" Ten people. Twelve days. One killer. Ten people meet for a reunion at a remote castle, organised by a preacher who once held them in a Christian cult. One by one, the old friends are brutally murdered, and yet their killer remains hidden in their very midst. Rafe attends the reunion at the castle for one reason only: to settle once and for all how he really feels about his childhood obsession, Suzanne. Rivalry reignites at the outset as the men who all loved and fought over Suzanne are brought together once more. Is Suzanne the reason for these serial killings? Is the murderer a jealous unrequited lover? Or is she the femme fatale with a bloody agenda? As tension mounts, Rafe must play this deadly game in order to identify and neutralise the hidden serial killer before he himself becomes the next victim... Twelve Days is a twisty, gripping and claustrophobic crime thriller which you won't be able to put down. It will appeal to fans of authors like Mark Edwards, John Marrs and Caroline Mitchell.

The Twelve Birds of Christmas by Stephen Moss Book Resume:

Naturalist Stephen Moss digs beneath the surface of some of our most popular Christmas carols in an ornithological celebration of the Festive Season. Using the structure of the carol as a jumping off point, he explores the place of twelve fascinating British birds in our history, culture and landscape. Some of the birds are obvious, there’s the swan and of course the partridge. Other chapters are loose interpretations of a verse: for drummers drumming he delves into the woodpecker's distinctive drumming tap. Woodpeckers, he explains, have special padded skulls to mitigate against using its head like hammer drills. They carefully select dead trees for the most hollow, sonorous sound. With brilliant anecdotes and insights, Stephen Moss weaves history, culture, bird behaviour and folklore into a compelling narrative for each species, tracing its fortunes over the past two centuries. PRAISE FOR STEPHEN MOSS: 'A superb naturalist and writer' Chris Packham 'Moss has carved out an enviable niche as a chronicler of the natural world' Daily Mail
