The-Naphils-Kiss

‘makes you feel as if you’re in Restoration London alongside the two lead characters of this excellent historical novel. Highly recommended.” –The Bookbag

Sadie Appleby is an innocent who has never left her village home. But one night she is rudely awoken by her older and bolder sister, Ella, who has robbed her employer and is on the run.

Determined to stick together, the sisters flee the scene of the crime for London, hoping to lose themselves in the tangle of dark alleyways – the ‘rookeries’ that make up Restoration London.

Ella is seduced by the glitter and glamour of city life and sets her sights on flamboyant man-about-town, Jay Whitgift, owner of a beauty shop for wives of the London gentry. But nothing in the capital is what it seems, least of all Jay Whitgift.

When Ella rises in society and Sadie falls, Ella is determined to leave the heartbroken Sadie behind. But Ella needs Sadie, for the Law is on their trail, and soon the sisters are facing a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

But when the hangman finally threatens, and those they trust most betray them, will blood be thicker than water?

The-Naphils-Kiss

“THE AMBASSADOR’S WIFE is another terrific book from a terrific writer. In the genre of crime fiction set in Asia, Jake Needham is in a class of his own.” —The Bangkok Post

The first body is in Singapore, on a bed in an empty suite in the Marriott Hotel. The second is in Bangkok, in a seedy apartment close to the American embassy. Both women. Both Americans. Both beaten viciously, shot in the head, stripped naked, and lewdly displayed.

The FBI says it’s terrorism, but the whispers on the street tell a different story. They say a serial killer is stalking American women across Asia.

Inspector Samuel Tay of Singapore CID is something of a reluctant policeman. He’s a little overweight, a little lonely, a little cranky, and he smokes way too much. Thinking back, he can’t even remember why he became a detective in the first place. He thinks a lot about quitting, but he hasn’t. Because the thing is, he’s very, very good at what he does.

When the bodies of American women start turning up, CID gives the case to Tay. It’s high profile, and he’s the best they have. Then why is it, Tay soon begins to wonder, that nobody seems to want him to find the women’s killer? Not the American ambassador, not the FBI, not even his bosses at CID.

When international politics takes over a murder case, the truth is always the next victim.
