Death Comes Calling
A woman is found dead with her throat slashed. Beside the body lies a half-open razor with a single droplet of blood at the tip of an otherwise pristine blade. The forensics prove this razor can’t be the murder weapon, and when another woman is found murdered days later, again with her throat cut and again with a blood-tipped half-open razor placed beside her body, Detective Gore realises he has a serial killer on his hands.
Meanwhile someone is sending Gore notes, each headed, Death Comes Calling, and Gore begins to realise the killer is playing mind games not just with the police, but with him personally.
An Expendable Spy
Jack Tate wants his old life back. Five years earlier he’d been shunted in disgrace out of MI6 and into a British Intelligence backwater.
But now he’s been offered a way back into the Service. His superiors are willing to sanction his return to MI6 field operations on one condition; that he proves himself worthy by tracking down and eliminating the leadership of a Moscow funded terrorist group and exposing the identity of their KGB handler.
Undercover and working alone Tate knows he’s vulnerable. He knows he’ll have to kill if he doesn’t wish to end up dead himself. And he’s also beginning to realize that events and rivalries are conspiring against him, and that time isn’t on his side. . .
