We're starting with the sensational news that Ragnar Jónasson's new Ari Thor, Winterkill, is now a nationwide Top 10 bestseller in the USA - this is the first time an Icelandic author has reached one of the coveted top ten positions since 1938.
Huge congratulations, Ragnar!
“Whip-smart, fresh with a dash of dark humour, The Dying Squad is a wildly entertaining read. Highly recommended.”
"Fresh, inventive and funny. The Dying Squad is superbly plotted and packs an emotional heft rarely seen in a debut."
M. W. Craven

Finally Melissa has the allotment she's been longing for to distract her while her husband works away - even if it is chest-high in weeds. But when she looks for help in the wrong place, she finds she's the hottest topic of gossip.
For Dottie, her allotment and part-time job of 'a little light dusting' at Lerwick Manor keeps a spring in her eighty-year-old step - and her ears open for secrets.
Though generations apart, these three women are about to find a common bond in a new-found passion and that true friendship can grow anywhere.

"Blood Ties is one of those rare gems; a beautifully written crime novel that's also brilliantly paced, skillfully plotted and utterly absorbing. Brian McGilloway is, quite simply, a master of his art. Bravo." Jo Spain
