The Cold Fire of Madness By Philip Turner
eBook (PDF): $6.23
Bolton in Lancashire is known for its football team and, without being unkind to the town, not much else. Such was not the case back in 1927, when the Bolton Ripper was giving the nation as huge a... More > shiver of horror as his more famous cousin in London. The London Ripper's atrocities were still part of living memory in 1927. Sixty years on, in 1987, Jack was still the subject of speculation and a growing catalogue of books and films. His imitator in Bolton, similarly undetected, had been forgotten. The chance finding of an old newspaper, and his job as a researcher for a literary agent, put Dieter Pearson on the trail of what looked like a good story for a book. His story was to be a triumph of the human spirit, the struggle to preserve the reputation of one of the Bolton Ripper's intended victims. Just doing his job, creating an idea for others to exploit, he stepped into an ancient nightmare which began to demolish his life and steal everything that meant anything to him.< Less

Jeremy Haig had achieved success as a treasure hunter while working closely with academics. He had made himself a lot of money but he had retained respectability. Haig was the sort of person who uses... More > a metal detector to uncover history because that is his main interest. He was pleased to discover ancient gold and silver, but the real treasures, for him, were artifacts of baser metals. The Fantony brothers had the potential to create a great deal of wealth for themselves if they could only find a way to turn stolen bullion into something apparently more respectable. They knew that the easiest way to make money is to adapt an existing money-spinning idea. Finding a good idea to use as a starting point was proving to be very hard work. Haig was to become their unwitting model, an inspiration for the conversion of new into old and a guide to the way to retain possession of what looked like a chance discovery.< Less
The Terminal Man By Philip Turner
eBook (PDF): $6.98
Robert Helm thought he had lots of life left. Then he was confronted with the possibility that he might be wrong. On a whim, he chose to try to cram as much as possible into whatever time was left,... More > knowing that no matter how much trouble he got himself in to, he might not have to live long with the consequences. He opted for a wild ride, which took him from England to Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Italy. He moved among men worth millions, and even billions, and he staked his life for so many thousands of dollars that the numbers began to lose all meaning. Helm became involved in games, some with a deadly purpose, and international conspiracies, one of which was aimed at saving the world with an act of monumental destruction. His initial object was to raise enough money to enjoy himself in case he received bad news from his doctor. He soon found out that he had no guarantee of staying alive to spend his earnings; unless he got really creative.< Less
