Book 11: Murder Most Scottish
When detectives John Stone and Carmen Dehan who run the Cold Cases Department at the 43rd Precinct in the Bronx choose their honeymoon together, there are three things they are very clear on: there must be good steak and whisky, it must be remote, and for two blissful weeks they must forget about work, about cold cases and about murder. So a small island off the north coast of Scotland in a 16th century castle seems to be just the job.
After all, two out of three isn't bad.
At first the place seems idyllic: The wild landscapes are breathtaking, the northern lights otherworldly and the fire-side talk, fuelled by good whisky and good Angus steak, is fascinating. Maybe a bit too fascinating when it leads to a forty year old mystery about a man murdered, shot with a .38 in a locked room in circumstances which are, quite simply, impossible.
And when the island is cut off by a storm, and an identical murder is committed, well, what are two cold case cops on honeymoon to do…?
Book 12: The Butcher of Whitechapel
It was the first time John Stone had been back to London for fifteen years. Last time had been on an exchange program between the NYPD and Scotland Yard: an exchange of skills and experience that was supposed to last six months, but went one for a year and a half. This time he was on honeymoon with his partner and wife, Carmen Dehan. And it seemed, as they prepared to return home, that history was repeating itself.
Because, as they were leaving the hotel for the airport, the call came; the call that said they had to stay, the call that said the killer was back, the one he'd been searching for fifteen years ago, the one who haunted all his secret nightmares - the one that got away.
So now he has to share his dark secrets, and his nightmares, with his new bride.
Book 13: Little Dead Riding Hood
An eighteen-year-old girl sets out one November night to walk five blocks down Gleason Avenue to her boyfriend's house. He calls her and she tells him she's on her way. It's a walk that should take ten minutes, but she never arrives.
When she does turn up, it's five days later, washed up on the banks of the River Bronx, in Soundview Park, strangled to death.
The detective who investigates the murder, a friend of the family, finds no forensic evidence, nothing of interest in her phone records, no witnesses to the abduction or the murder. Nothing. The case goes cold.
Until her brother, Samuel, comes forward with new evidence he has found. And then the cases is handed to Detectives Stone and Dehan of the 43rd Precinct. They start asking the difficult questions, like how did she get into the river in the first place, and then the case starts heating up again…
