Five Leaves Publications
Father Confessor by Russel D, McLean
(Five Leaves Publications 01 September 2012 / £:7.99) - Book Description: DCI Ernie Bright is dead. A good cop gone bad? Not everyone believes that one of Tayside Constabulary's longest serving detectives was leading a double life.
One of those looking to vindicate the dead copper is Bright's protege, the private investigator J. McNee who has his own reasons for trying to prove Bright's innocence. But as the evidence piles up and McNee makes enemies on both sides of the law, he finds that justice and the law are not always the same, and that good people can make bad decisions.
Dark, violent aand psychologically gripping, Father Confessor is the third in the critically acclaimed J. McNee series. (see review)
Where Furnaces Burn by Joel Lane
(PS Publishing 01 September 2012 / £19.99) - Book Description: Episodes from the casebook of a police officer in the West Midlands: A young woman needs help in finding the buried pieces of her lover... so he can return to waking life. Pale-faced thieves gather by a disused railway to watch a puppet theatre of love and violence. Why do local youths keep starting fires in the ash woods around a disused mine in the Black Country?
A series of inexplicable deaths lead the police to uncover a secret cult of machine worship. When a migrant worker disappears, the key suspect is a boy driven mad by memories that are not his own. Among the derelict factories and warehouses at the heart of the city, an archaic god seeks out his willing victims. Blurring the occult detective story with urban noir fiction, Where Furnaces Burn offers a glimpse of the myths and terrors buried within the industrial landscape. (see review)
