In the Border town of Jedburgh stands the Queen’s House. In 1565 Mary, Queen of Scots, came to hold an Assize, but was driven from the Spread Eagle tavern to the House by a malicious fire. Did... More > someone intend to murder the Queen? Mary rode to Hermitage where her presumed lover, James Hepburn, Earl Bothwell lived, but returned the same day. Why? I was intrigued.

When Detective Constable Susan Duffy views a CCTV tape from a Newcastle charity shop burglary, she is shocked, but no one at her chauvinistic station can be bothered. Then two teenagers disappear after visiting the House and Susan pursues the villain who moves through time to kill everyone in his path who would reveal the truth of an age-old mystery. ‘In my ending is my beginning,’ as Mary Stuart wrote. In the ending of this story is the beginning of something extraordinary.< Less
Putting Out The Lights By Alex Ferguson

Have you ever wondered why it is always the bright child who is killed in an accident? Gifted children we need to advance our technology, to find the answers to our problems, die in incidents where... More > others survive. In my personal experience, I mourn three such children. Daniel Fallon believes an evil presence provokes innocent people to kill gifted children to impoverish us. A whisper of an imaginary slight in an innocent’s ear grows from irritation to anger, to homicidal rage, to murder. Daniel Fallon and a young woman, Sheena Galloway, become allies in the struggle to track down this creature and destroy it. My advice: lock the doors, settle in your chair with your favourite crisps, a bottle of strengthening Lucozade, and a stout shillelagh. Don’t turn down the lights.< Less

The Brook Randall School for Girls of Military Parentage is a boarding school of good reputation. For teenagers Melanie Mackenzie, Joan Vere d’Urquart, and Laura MaCallaman, it is a tranquil... More > and ordered environment that allows them to overcome the tragedies of their pasts. But when the famous playwright Christopher Marlowe arrives at the school to give a lecture on historical time travel, bringing with him an air of mystery and adventure, the delicate equilibrium of Randall’s is shattered. Melanie, it turns out, is a Time Walker: someone who can break the barriers of time and send people back into the past. She is just what Marlowe has been looking for – someone who can return him to his own time and allow him to escape the religious fanatics who have hunted him since the Elizabethan era. But as events unfold, both Christopher Marlowe and the girls find themselves embroiled in a historical time travel mystery spanning the 1600s to the closing days of the Napoleonic Wars.< Less
