GRAHAM HURLEY The Sins of the Father
D/S Jimmy Suttle investigates a murder in a house haunted by the past in the latest from ‘one of the UK’s finest crime novelists’ (Independent on Sunday). A rich old man, Rupert Moncrieff, is beaten to death in his waterside mansion, his head hooded and his throat cut. His extended family are still living beneath his roof, each with their own motives for murder. And in this world of darkness and dysfunction are the artefacts and memories of colonial atrocities that are returning to haunt them all. At the heart of the investigation is D/S Jimmy Suttle who, along with his estranged wife Lizzie, is fighting his own demons after the abduction and death of their young daughter. But who killed Rupert Moncrieff? And what secrets is the house holding onto that could unravel this whole investigation? Graham Hurley is an award-winning TV documentary maker who now writes full time. He is married and has grown up children.

DAN KAVANAGH Putting the Boot In
Wickedly funny, this is the third novel in the elusive Dan Kavanagh’s London-based crime series featuring bisexual private detective Duffy. Things are hotting up in the Third Division and it seems someone’s nobbling players. Following the loss of one of his best strikers, Jimmy Lister, former England player and now ineffectual club manager, calls on the expertise of the inimitable Duffy. Duffy must investigate the troubled world of lower-league football while also facing questions about his possible encounter with AIDS, whether he’s cooked his frozen pizza for too long and whether he’s too short to be a decent goalkeeper. Dan Kavanagh was born in County Sligo in 1946. He has been a steer-wrestler, a waiter-on-roller-skates and a bouncer in a gay bar in San Francisco. He is currently working in London at jobs he declines to specify.
