Unholy Alliance
by Juliet B Madison

DI Frank Lyle Mysteries Book 3

The brutal murder of a curate at an ecumenical conference leads DI Lyle and his team to uncover the shocking and somewhat tragic past of the victim, Reverend Martin Hayes, whom no one appears to have known very well.

Assisted by Canon Thomas Rice, a former police officer, DI Lyle works his way through a tangled web, which leads to a recently released prisoner with a deep-seated hatred of the church. Can DI Lyle penetrate the unholy alliance formed between the ex con and a corrupt police officer? And will a little knowledge prove a dangerous thing?

This revised edition contains a taster excerpt from Murder in the Wings, the fourth DI Frank Lyle Mystery.

Life's a Ditch
by
Charles Dougherty

DescriptionWhen my wife and I decided to run away to sea, we thought we knew what we were doing. Our first few months on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, or “the Ditch,” disabused us of that notion. Our seamanship was adequate, but our expectations weren't realistic. Life's a Ditch isn't so much about where we went and what we saw during our time in the Ditch, but about how we reacted to it and how our lives were changed by our experiences. Share the surprises we had and the choices that we made as we discovered what we got ourselves into when we abandoned our comfortable life ashore to become seagoing wanderers.
