THE CUCKOO WOOD

Samantha Jaynes took her own life in the cold lake. Rosie Trimble followed. Both claim to have seen an angel. And they're not the only ones.

A spate of teenage suicides rattles Kirkdale, a rural community in England's Lake District. In the days leading up to their deaths, the girls talked about having seen an angel.

That's when Dr Alex Ripley—the so-called Miracle Detective—is asked to help the police. It's Ripley's job to explain the angel sightings and what they had to do with the girls' deaths. Were they hallucinating? Or did they truly encounter a heavenly phenomenon?

Angelic visions. Old sins. Fear, revenge, and suspicion: Ripley uncovers a decades-old tragedy, and the deeper she digs, the more hostility she encounters. Because the vehemently pious residents of Kirkdale have tried to bury the past, and they don't like strangers dredging up their sins.​​​

The Cuckoo Wood is the first book in the Alex Ripley Mystery Series.

A HOLLOW SKY

A SUSPENSEFUL, ATMOSPHERIC THRILLER.

 

Jane Hewitt had been miraculously healed—cured of a terminal cancer that had been eating away at her body for months. After one meeting with an incredible young woman, Jane rose from her wheelchair and walked out, believing that her lifetime of devoted faith had been rewarded.

The next day, Jane died in her husband's arms, devastated that her God had deserted her. Her husband, Ian, blames her hastened death on the faith healer she visited. But that faith healer is a teenage girl called Megan, who has been in a coma for five years, and has no say over how her gift is used.

When Ian is arrested after being accused of breaking in to Megan's house and trying to tamper with her life support, he turns to the only person he knows can help clear his name, and stop this family deceiving any other victims—Dr Alex Ripley, the so called Miracle Detective.

Fascinated by Megan's case, and needing a distraction, Ripley finds herself on Holy Island, off the coast of North Wales, caught up in an investigation that will prove more sinister and dangerous than she could have imagined. Ian is not the first person to complain about Megan and her supporters, but he seems to be the only one left alive. For now.
