Catnip by Valerie Tate

Catnip by Valerie Tate - Available on Amazon

‘Finally, what you'll all have gathered to hear, I give, devise, bequeath and appoint  my entire estate, including all financial assets, properties and personal possessions to my only true friend and companion, my cat, Marmalade.’

With those words, Amanda Dunbar sets in motion a series of events that will lead her family and Christopher Mallory, the young attorney who finds himself trustee to the cat, into mischief, misadventure and murder!
Set in the picturesque town of Dunbarton, Ontario, Catnip is the story of what befalls the dysfunctional Dunbar family, and the chaos that ensues, when the matriarch of the clan leaves the family fortune to her cat.  That formidable feline proves to be more than a match for the humans in his life until one fateful night when, caught unawares, he is stuffed in a sack and  carried away.  When a murder occurs Christopher and Alicia Dunbar  finds themselves confronting a ruthless killer who would do anything, including kill again, to conceal his/her identity.

The Hard Swim by Keith Dixon

The Hard Swim by Keith Dixon - Available on Amazon

February 1942: The Struma, a broken-down steamer, explodes and sinks in the Black Sea, drowning 768 Rumanian Jews fleeing the Nazis and heading for Palestine, and safety.

June 1944: Thirty-one SAS soldiers are captured behind enemy lines and are forced to dig their own graves before being shot and buried in a forest in the heart of France.

Seventy Years Later: A young woman is attacked in the grounds of Edinburgh Zoo - the attacker seeking the document that might link these two wartime events.

Private Investigator Sam Dyke rescues the woman, Chantal Bressette, and embarks on a quest to find out why the document she carries is being sought by a high-ranking Government official and his team of ex-Army thugs.
